Jehovah Rapha

Jehovah our Healer

Rapha (raw-faw’)

ApR

רָפָא

R The ‘Resh’ symbolizes a head, man, chief, highest, top, beginning, or first.
p The ‘Pey’ represents an open mouth means speak, open, blow, or apart.
A The ‘Aleph’ is the picture of an ox head and illustrates the strength of an animal. It can mean strong, power, or leader.

Rapha is often used as a compound name with ‘Jehovah’ (hvhy seen here). The Pey and Resh indicate ‘man open,’ like wounded or sick. The Aleph covers that sickness with strength to heal or repair it. Jehovah Rapha is ‘God our Healer’.
