The Names Of God - Jehovah

Genesis 2:24

(Genesis 2:4) These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD [Jehovah] God made the earth and the heavens,

Jehovah occurs in the Bible 6,823 times and is the most frequently used of the names of God. Jehovah comes from the verb "havah" = to be. Jehovah means "One who is what He is."

In our KJV Bible the name is always shown in capital letters [LORD] to distinguish it from another name, Adoni which is shown as [Lord].

He is absolutely self-existent, the One who in Himself possesses essential life, and permanent existence. Elohim may be used to refer to the true or false gods. Jehovah is never referred to in relation to false gods for He is the one true God. Elohim is the general name of God concerned with creation and preservation. Jehovah is the God of revelation in the expression of Himself in His moral and spiritual attributes.
