YHVH

Jehovah (yeh-ho-vaw’)

HvHy

יְהוָֹה

y The ‘Yud’ in pictograph form shows an arm and a hand. The picture can mean to work, throw, worship, or it can simply mean an arm or hand.
H The ‘Hey’ pictograph represents a man with his hands in the air trying to get someone’s attention. It suggests look, reveal, behold.
v The ‘Vav’ represents a tent peg or nail and means to secure or hook. But it can also simply mean peg or nail.
H The ‘Hey’ pictograph represents a man with his hands in the air trying to get someone’s attention. It suggests look, reveal, behold.

The Hey-Vav-Hey letters in this name of God form a root word meaning ‘to exist.’ Add the Yud to the root and we understand that ‘from His hand is all that exists.’
