(Sermon Notes)
By Warren Zehrung – January 5, 2013

This planet earth on which we live is almost totally unaware of the great God who created it.

Let’s begin at the first verse in the Bible – Genesis 1:1

Even the few nations which claim to be “Christian” have mostly relegated the concept of “God” to the status of a myth – a holdover superstition of early man with his archaic illusions.

Modern educational institutions ridicule the belief that there exists some unseen eternal being.

NASA scientists scorn the belief in a Creator God.

A primary goal of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is to find intelligent life that has evolved on other planets – demonstrating that life does indeed evolve from non life – doing away with the need of a life giving Creator God.

Brilliant scientists reason something like this.  If there is a God – it would necessarily follow that we must obey Him and do His Will, SO, if we can “prove” that the universe operates without a Creator God – then we are free to live our lives as we wish.

Evolutionists teach that man is evolving into a smarter and more intelligent being all the time – from ape-man to homo-sapiens – “knowing man.”

Brethren, when God created the first man and woman in the Garden of Eden they were intellectually brilliant compared to the Einstein-like geniuses of today.

We live at the end of 6000 years of human sin and degradation that has taken a terrible toll on man’s ability to reason properly.

God’s Spirit is the spirit of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).  This world is on the verge of destructive insanity.

Title from the first verse in the Bible:

Genesis 1:

  In the beginning God [‘Elohim’] created the heaven and the earth.  [We will come back to this verse after awhile.]

God’s name is held in derision by the intelligentsia, the courts of law and the American educational elite.

Brethren, we are most privileged to not only know of the True God, but to have a relationship with Him.

Psalm 8:

  O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!  Who has set your glory higher than the heavens!

God reveals Himself to us through the Biblical names and titles He has chosen to help us relate to Him.

God's names represent His attributes, His character, His personality, His reputation, and His nature.

Through His self-descriptive names and titles, God shows us what He thinks about things – so that we can re-order our lives to be like Him.

It is not, “My Will be done” – but God’s Will be done (John 5:30).

God is the only source of security, peace, happiness, fulfillment and ultimately – Eternal Life.

To obtain security, peace, happiness, fulfillment and Eternal Life – we must concur with everything God does and is.

There is no more important goal for a Christian than to know God and to become like God.

John 17:

  And this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Even now, we are set aside in a unique categoryand protected by the Name of God when we hold it in reverence and obedience.

John 17:

11 [Jesus prayed]  And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me that they may be one, as we are.

Keep through thine own name,” means that we are submissive to the Will of God in minute detail.

God’s authority, His power, His rule and law protect and promote His people.

Our attaining eternal life is dependent on our knowing God and becoming like Him.

The very purpose of our being created is it to be in the image of God.

Genesis 1:

26 And God [Elohim] said, Let us [That is the Father and Jesus] make man in our image, after our likeness:

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Sometimes people in the church will say, “God looks just like us.”

Brethren, there is so much more to the equation than that.

Ask yourself if you possess eternal life…            God does!

What of the strength, power, wisdom, mercy and love of God???

We do not come close!

What about His Divinity, Holiness?

Do you possess the Glory of God?

I believe that we would have to conclude that we have a good ways to go before we resemble the Image of God.

That is our life’s work and objective – to acquire the characteristics of God.

That is only accomplished through the constant working of God’s Holy Spirit  - enabling and empowering us to put off our carnal nature.

Our focus in life is to become the person God has set us apart to be.

Indeed, “Going on to perfection” is the culminating doctrine of Christ. 

Hebrews 6:

  Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, etc.

It is through that process of becoming holy – sanctified – and going on to perfection that we become "spiritually qualified" and able to be used by God in whatever capacity He ordains for us—large or small.

Our goal is to getto the place where we, like Jesus Christ, "always do the will of [our] Father" (John 8:29)—no matter what His will may entail for us.

God is creating us in His image, and that requires a lifetime of submission to the Will of God.

Ephesians 2:

10 "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them."

I Corinthians 12:

  But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit everyone.

Jesus is the perfect image of His Father, and we are to become perfect – putting on the perfection of Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 1:

  [Speaking of Jesus Christ] Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.

Of course, in the flesh we will not complete the task set before us of becoming fully perfect, non-the-less, the perfection of Jesus Christ is our goal to which we must constantly strive to attain. 

Ephesians 4:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

There are no spiritual giants in the flesh that measure up to the stature of the fullness of Christ. 

Being in the image of God is the aspiration that is always before us.

In the Book of Revelation God speaks of His Church as having held fast His name and having not denied His name. (Revelation 2:13, 3:8)

Jesus tells the faithful church brethren:

Revelation 3:

12 Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God… I will write upon him my new name.   [That is important!]

Understanding what the Bible means by God’s Name is very important.

I Corinthians 10:

31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

In the Bible, God goes by many Divine names… Many titles... Many descriptions.

God’s name reveals Who and What He is.

The first thing that Jesus taught His disciples was :  God’s Name is Holy.

It behooves us to try to understand what Jesus meant by ; God’s Name is Holy.

Matthew 6:

  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.  “hagiazo” means to make holy.

Holy and reverend is His name.”  (Psalms 111:9)

God’s name - i.e., God’s authority, His reputation, His power, His majesty - is in a class high above every other being.

In Isaiah 55, God tells us that His ways and His thoughts are completely different from man’s way of looking at things.

Isaiah 55:

  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”

Why then would Jesus tell us that, when we pray, we should say, “Father, your name is the holiest?”

The answer is that Jesus Christ gave us this clause so that we would come to understand the supreme sovereignty of the Father. 

When we pray “Just Me and You LORD,” we might think that we are able to rise to a similar level with God. 

We must realize that He exists in a spiritual realm far higher than our mundane existence. 

It will only be in the resurrection that we will be able to experience His eternal glory.

In teaching the disciples to pray “Hallowed be thy name,” Jesus was developing the third commandment for them to build upon. 

He was showing them how the Father’s name is to be treated with the greatest dignity and highest respect.

Exodus 20:

7   “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that takes His name in vain.”

**When we say, “Hallowed be thy name,” we reflect on our Father’s names and titles that tell us so much about His awesome power, magnificent character, boundless goodness, supreme authority, and everlasting kingdom.

First let’s look at God’s FAMILY NAME

It is the first name of God revealed to us in the Bible – it is translated “GOD” for English readers.  [The second word]

Genesis 1:

  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

“ELOHIM - Family Name of God

“The Hebrew word [Elohim]...signifies strong, or mighty; this appellation is used exclusively in the narrative of the first chapter, as expressive of the powers displayed in the work of creation. 

“This word [Elohim] is plural in form, and although it most frequently means God it can be used in a plural sense. Thus it can refer to other gods (Exodus 20:3; Joshua 24:16), foreign gods (Jeremiah 5:7), gods of the nations (Isaiah 36:18)”

Elohim is a family name of God. The Greek Scriptures clearly reveal two Persons in the Godhead—the Father and His Son, Jesus. “Then God [Elohim] said, ‘Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness’” (Genesis 1:26). “Then the LORD God [Yahweh Elohim] said, ‘Behold, the man has become like one of US, to know good and evil....’” (Genesis 3:22).

And at the Tower of Babel, when man rebelled against his Maker: “Let US go down and there confuse their language...” (Genesis 11:7).”

Elohim Hebrew #430

'elohym   “God” is the beginning of the creation.

el-o-heem'  This Name signifies Strength of God – Strong , Mighty, Powerful God.

Elohim is Plural in form of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used of the supreme God;  the powerful God who Creates from nothingness.

Elohim is occasionally applied by way of deference to lesser magistrates; i.e., gods of the nations, foreign gods, and sometimes as a superlative:

Elohim means Strong Faithful God Family

Elohim appears ~2,700 times in the Old Testament

God gives us another of His Names in Genesis 3:22

Genesis 3:

22 And the LORD [Yehovah] God [Elohim] said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, [Father and Jesus]  to know good and evil…

We, the people of God – want to know all there is to know about God as He is revealed in the Scriptures.

We study about God, and we live His way.

Psalm 111:

10 The fear [respect and reverence] of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that keep His commandments:   [That is what we seek.]

There is a lot of religious information floating around these days on TV and the internet.

You will find a lot of information on topics like end-time dates and places, BUT precious little about how to live our lives to be counted worthy.

Jeremiah 5:

4   Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God.

How can we “know the way of the LORD?”

By looking at the Names that God uses of Himself – we are better able to Know, Respect, and Honor Him.

What are some of the names of God that come to mind?

Jesus, Christ, God, Father, Messiah, Redeemer…Isaiah 41:14

Savior – What is our Savior’s Name?

Or more exotic names in Hebrew or Greek:

El Shaddai  [more later],

Creator God, Jehovah, Most High God …Luke 1:32

Adonai, Eternal , Everlasting …Genesis 21:33

Yahweh, Immanuel, Ancient of Days..................Daniel 7:9

In the Greek alphabet, the letter Aleph is the first letter, and Omega is the last letter.

However, in the Hebrew Language, the letter Aleph is the first letter, and the letter Tau is the last.

We could say A to Z -  in any case, it means that Jesus Christ is the First and the Last,  the Beginning and the End.

Revelation 1:

8    I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

How many Names does God go by?

Some people will pick one Name – and say “That is the one and only name that must be used”  – and then they will claim to have the precise pronunciation of their particular choice of a name.

The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink – neither is the Kingdom about secret knowledge, code words, or esoteric questions like you would find in a Harrison Ford/Indiana Jones movie.

God is not shallow like that …Jesus spoke of the Father in terms, language, vernacular and dialect of the Palestine of His day.

You will remember that we were baptized into the NAME  -

….Of the Father

….Of the Son                            into their Spirit, Life, …

We need to know all about “That Name”

Because - God’s Name is becoming our Name.

Secondly, let’s look at God’s most important Personal name.

Y H V H   the Tetragrammaton   {a fancy way of saying the 4 letters}

They are all consonants – there are no vowels, a, e, i, o, or u  in the name – it is impossible to sound out a name without vowels.

LORD all caps = Yahweh = The True God as opposed to all the false gods.

“YAHWEH - A Personal Name of God

The God of Israel’s important personal name, Yahweh, is mentioned in the second chapter of Genesis: “This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD [Yahweh] God [Elohim] made the earth and the heavens” (Genesis 2:4).

This name Yahweh is mentioned 11 times in this chapter, and is used nearly 7000 times in the entire Old Testament; whereas the name Elohim occurs only 2700 times in the Hebrew Scriptures.

God revealed His name, Yahweh, to Moses. Moses asked God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God [Elohim] of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?” (Exodus 3:13).

The Eternal God then told Moses, “I AM WHO I AM... Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you’” ( verse 14).

Then God added, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The LORD God [Yahweh Elohim] of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations’” (verse 15).

“God spoke to Moses and said to him: ‘I am the LORD [Yahweh]. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty [Hebrews El Shaddai], but by My name LORD [Yahweh] I was not known to them’” (Exodus 6:2-3).

God then told Moses, “Therefore say to the children of Israel: I am the LORD...I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the LORD [Yahweh] your God [Elohim] who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians...” (Exodus 6:6-7). 

“The Covenant Name...Yahweh is the only truly personal name of God in Israel’s faith; the others are titular or descriptive expressions. The name consists of four consonants, YHWH [known as the tetragrammaton because only the consonants are known, the vowels are guesses]. Shorter forms also occur: Yah [Exodus 15:2]; the exclamation halleluyah, praise Yah,’ is frequent in the Psalms; Yahu and Yo.”

Yahweh signifies the ETERNAL ONE, He who was, and is, and is to come—the Immutable One: “For I am the LORD [Yahweh], I do not change” ( Malachi 3:6). “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).”

Hebrew 3068



From Hebrew 1961; (the) self-Existent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: - Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.

The “j” sound only came into use in the middle ages Jehovah is an historically incorrect pronunciation of YHVH – but we shouldn’t feel superior about one phonetic pronunciation or the other.

Some people will only say “Eternal” which is a very good rendering of YHVH – but they won’t say LORD because Lord is used of false gods – who are no gods…

John 4:

24 God is Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. And I will add – not pronunciation.

Genesis 2:

4   These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD [Yahweh] God [Elohim] made the earth and the heavens,

It is always written “LORD” in all caps  {to distinguish it from other names}

“Yahweh” is mentioned 11 times in Genesis 2, and ~ 7000 times in the Hebrew Old Testament

“Great Is His Name

“There is none like You, O LORD; You are great, and Your name is great in might. Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? For that is your due...”
(Jeremiah 10:6-7 NRSV).

God has many different names and titles as used in the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures.

We can better understand our God and show greater respect to Him if we learn the meanings of some of the main names by which He called Himself in the Bible—names such as Elohim, Yahweh, Adonai or El Shaddai.” 

Genesis 3:13

God revealed His Name to Moses.

Exodus 3:

13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name?  what shall I say unto them?

14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

“I AM” means the self-existing one.   No one created God.  God owes his existence to no one.  We do.

“Yahweh” means I AM, or I exist eternally – past present and future – Eternal.  God has always existed and will always exist.

That is the whole argument about Evolution – Man too wishes to be self-existent, but he is not.  We have a creator God.

I hear that in some curriculums they are doing away with the termEvolution”  opting for “Biological changes over time.’’

That way they can teach there is no God without using the word Evolution.

Then God added:

Exodus 3:

15  And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God [Yahweh Elohim] of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

Jesus gives a clarification:

I say “Jesus” often using “Jesus Christ” and “God” interchangeably.

The world is totally confused on the matter of WHO the God of the OT is.  The world thinks the God of the OT was an entirely different being – who somehow is out of the picture today,

“That old harsh “eye for and eye – tooth for a tooth” God of the OT has somehow been replaced with a soft, permissible – often effeminate – long haired – soft spoken NT Jesus Christ.  They refuse to see the bravery and strength of the real Jesus who single handedly overturned the moneychanger’s tables and completely cleared out the Temple area – more than once.

I Corinthians 10:

1   Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

2   And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;

3   And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

4   And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

“Many Bible scholars have failed to notice that the Being, Yahweh, who appeared to the prophets and patriarchs of old was actually the Word (Gk. Logos, Spokesman). This divine Being later became the “Son of God,” when He was born of the virgin Mary.” 

Paul is demonstrating, unequivocally, that it was Jesus Christ who spoke to Moses , led the Children of Israel out of Egypt – across the Red Sea – the God of the Old Testament is Jesus Christ!

So much Truth is being lost – even to the people of God!

Exodus 6:

2    And God spoke unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD [Yahweh]:

3    And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty [El Shaddai], but by my name (KJV) JEHOVAH [(LORD elsewhere)  Yahweh, YHVH ] was I not known to them.

It is good to look these up [JEHOVAH in all caps] – because the King James Translators can slip one in on us occasionally.

Notice in this next verse the Covenant Name “Yahweh” is the only personal name of God.

All the other “Names” we see are TITLES or DESCRIPTIVE expressions.

“Yahweh” signifies the ETERNAL ONE ,

He who has always been,

He who is now, [ I AM ],  And

He who is to Come.

{John 14:

3   And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.}

Malachi 3:

  For I am the LORD [ Yahweh ], I change not.

Hebrews 13

LORD = Jesus Christ = Word = Son of God

Remember Jesus is LORD – Paul says it – and paraphrases Malachi.

Hebrews 13:

  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

Third Name,  Adonai    Adonai means “God is Lord”

“ADONAI- God is Our Lord

God’s rulership and lordship are expressed through three related names of God: Adon, Adonai, Adonim.  “Adon is the Lord as overlord or ruler. Adonim is the Lord as owner. Adonai is the Lord as blesser” 

God is LORD and Master, or Ruler, over the entire universe which He created, “God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshipped with men’s hands, as though He needs anything, since He gives to all life and breath, and all things” (Acts 17:24-25).

The Hebrew word Adonai, translated Lord in many English translations, is rendered as Kurios in the Greek Scriptures.” 

Adonai means the Lord who Blesses us.

Adonai expresses the Rulership or Lordship of God of the OT, or Jesus Christ in the NT

It is written Capital “L”    little “o r d”

We use the term “Master.”   Master of all He created.

{Ephesians 3:9  God, who created all the universe by Jesus Christ:}

Acts 17:

24  God [ Theos in the Greek ] that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord [ Adonai in Hebrew is Kurios in the Greek ] of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

25  Neither is worshiped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; { He blesses us}

Fourth Name,   Shaddai= God is gracious
 = God who sustains us

Shaddai emphasizes God’s Grace, Giving, Sustenance, Generosity

"EL SHADDAI" — God Is Gracious

El Shaddai is always translated as “Almighty” in the KJV, and this Hebrew name of God emphasizes God’s grace. God is the Great Giver. Shaddai is properly defined as “the All-Bountiful One.”

“When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, ‘I am Almighty God [El Shaddai]; walk before Me and be blameless. And I will...multiply you exceedingly’” (Genesis 17:1-2).

As El Shaddai, the Almighty Giver, God promised to give Abram and his descendants many blessings.  These are but a few of God’s many names and titles. God allows His name to be translated into many languages which are the modern equivalents of the original Hebrew and later Greek names.

We need not be restricted to the original biblical forms of God’s names in their original pronunciations.  Some groups insist we call God: Jehovah or Yahweh, I do not change” (Malachi 3:6).  “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).

However, the exact pronunciation of YHWH, translated in the KJV as the LORD, is unknown because the vowels were not preserved in the Hebrew text. What God is concerned about is that we reverence His name, treating all His names with awe and respect—“Holy and awesome is His Name” (Psalm 111:9).” 

In the Old Testament, Shaddai is always translated as “Almighty” in the KJV.  ( For other versions of the bible – you just have to cross reference.)

A better translation of “Shaddai” instead of “the Almighty” (which He is) would be “ the All Bountiful One

Genesis 17:

1    And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD [ Yahweh ] appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God [ EL Shaddai ]; walk before me, and be thou perfect. [ blameless ]

Now, notice, God promises to Give – to Abraham and his descendants – The Almighty, the All Bountiful One – has to be able to bring it about.

Genesis 17:

2   And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.

El Shaddai has kept His promise of many blessings to Abraham’s descendants – the Israelitish nations – and the whole world doesn’t even recognize it!

Shaddai comes from the Hebrew word meaning bosom – and it carries the meaning of the God who Nourishes, gives Rest, Satisfaction, Peace, comfort, strength, emotional fulfillment, quiet, sufficiency… the God who makes fruitful and Enriches.

Psalm 111:

9   He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant forever: holy and reverend [ awesome ] is his name.

God reveals Himself as the Healing God.

Exodus 15:

26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD [ Yahweh ] thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for am the LORD  [ Yahweh ]   that “healeth” thee.


raphah = healer

raw-faw', raw-faw'

A primitive root; properly to mend (by stitching), that is, (figuratively) to cure: - cure, (cause to) heal, physician, repair, X thoroughly, make whole.

God reveals Himself as the Peaceful God

Judges 6:

22 And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the LORD, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord GOD! for because I have seen an angel of the LORD face to face.

23 And the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die.

24 Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovah-shalom: [ Yahweh is Peace ] unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abi-ezrites.

God reveals Himself as the Righteous God

Jeremiah 23:

6   In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. [ Yahweh Tsehdek ]

God reveals Himself as the God who gives Victory

Exodus 17:

11  And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.

12  But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.

13  And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.

14  And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.

15  And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi: [ Yahweh is my banner ]

God will fight our battles for us.  Victory over enemies, Victory over self. {I Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.}

Exodus 17:

16  For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

After telling us 70 times “You shall know the Lord”  Ezekiel concludes with this verse…  God is present with us

Ezekiel 48:

35  It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the city from that day shall be, The LORD is there.

[Yahweh is Shawm ]

Psalm 23:

  A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  [ Yahweh is Raah ]

Raah =  to tend a flock,   by extension to associate with (as a friend):  companion, keep company with,  make friendship with, herdsman,  keep [sheep] (-er), pastor,

Psalm 148:

  Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.

Psalm 148:

13  Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
