And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob,
by the name of God Almighty,
but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
That men may know that thou,
whose name alone is JEHOVAH,
art the most high over all the earth.
Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and not be afraid:
for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song;
he also is become my salvation.
Trust ye in the LORD for ever:
for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh:
as it is said to this day,
In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.
And Moses built an altar,
and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi:
Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD,
and called it Jehovah-shalom:
unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abi-ezrites.
Sing unto God, sing praises to his name:
extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH,
and rejoice before him.
In the Old Testament there are seven compound names of Jehovah that cover the whole life of the redeemed people.
Jehovah-jireh (Genesis 23 :14), meaning redemption and providence,
Jehovah-rapha, the Lord that healeth (Exodus 15:26),
Jehovah-nissi, the Lord our banner (Exodus 17:8-15),
Jehovah-shalom, the Lord our peace (Judges 6:24),
Jehovah-raah, the Lord my shepherd (Psalm 23:1),
Jehovah-tsidkenu, the Lord our righteousness (Jeremiah 26:6), and
Jehovah-shammah, the Lord is present (Ezekiel 48:35);
the last referring to the final city of God, the New Jerusalem, when the great work of redemption will be complete and God's abiding presence shall be our light forever.
