Names for God and our Glorious Lord Ending

This is the final segment of bible study on the names for our triune God with more familiar names used by the Hebrews and known to us today. They are known to some as the “Jehovah Titles for God” or “Old Testament Names for God”. I will be using some of the references from H. L. Wilmington’s Book of Bible Lists.


As I mentioned earlier it is important to know the meanings attributed to a name or names before we employ them and name a place, a ministry or building. I truly hope that this series of study has caused awareness for things of God in all areas of our lives.

Old Testament Names for the Triune God


Name: Elohim – Genesis 1:1, Genesis 2:4-25, Psalm 19:1
A reference to God’s power and might.


Name: Adonai – Malachi 1:6, Genesis 15:2-8
A reference to the “Lordship of God”.


Name: Jehovah [Is sometimes spelt “Yahweh”] – Genesis 2:4
Used widely in a compounded fashion and means “God of Israel”, Eternal One.
It refers to God’s divine salvation for us all.


Name: Jehovah-Maccaddeshem [Can be spelt “Mekaddishkem”] – Exodus 31:1-13, Exodus 20:1-12, Leviticus 20:1-8, 22:1-8, 22:1-9 & 16-32
Meaning “The Lord thy sanctifier”.


Name: Jehovah-Rohi – Psalm 21 & 23,
Meaning ”The Lord my shepherd”.


Name: Jehovah-Rapha – Exodus 15:22-27
Meaning “The Lord our healer”.


Name: Jehovah-Jireh – Genesis 22:1-14
Meaning “The Lord will provide”.


Name: Jehovah-Nissi – Exodus 17:1-15
Meaning “The Lord our banner”.


Name: Jehovah-Shammah – Ezekiel 48:1-35
Meaning “The Lord is present”.


Name: Jehovah-Sabaoth – Isaiah 6:1-3, 1st Samuel 1:1-3
Meaning “The Lord of Hosts”.


Name: Jehovah-Shalom – Judges 6:1-24
Meaning “The Lord is peace”.


Name: Jehovah-Tsidkenu – Jeremiah 23:1-6, Jeremiah 33:1-16
Meaning “The Lord our righteousness”.


Name: El-Shaddai – Genesis 17:1, Psalm 91, Psalm 68:1-14, Numbers 24:4-16
Meaning “The God of the mountains, or “God Almighty”.


Name: El-Olam [or Elolam] – Isaiah 40:1-31
Meaning “The Everlasting God”.


Name: El-Elyon or Jehovah-Elyown – Psalms 7, 47, Genesis 14:17-20, Isaiah 14 Meaning “The Most High God”.


You will note that some of the compounded names begin with ‘El’. It means strength and was used to convey supernatural power or provision.

Here concludes this series of study.
