Why are so many religion's removing "Jehovah" out of there bibles? The New King James Bible has removed it. Wouldn't a person want to be called by his name, not human or person. So why do that to Jehovah.
Maigyn's comment on 2010-05-23 14:43:53:
Because when religions use Jehovah's name as a title, it smudges the name and things appear that a certain sect is the truth when in actuality, it a cult.
Kemeisha's comment on 2010-05-28 07:10:54:
So Maigyn, just because you think that a sect or cult use the name, justify man removing it from the Bible? I think not.!!! Lord and god are all titles, not the name of someone.
Simon's comment on 2010-05-29 07:08:55:
This is interesting. I'm also pleased to find Jehovah's name has been kept in this online translation. Why should we not use it. When we want to get to know someone, one of the first things we do is to get to know the person's name and the person behind that name. The Author of the bible, the Most High has given us his name. No one has given me a logical reason to take this name away from people as one of the steps for getting close to their heavenly Father.
Willian's comment on 2010-05-29 07:14:49:
This has nothing to do with a cult. Look up the facts somewhere like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JEHOVAH
Dwayne's comment on 2010-06-06 10:38:39:
In response to Maigyn I would like to offer the following: Have you read Acts 15:14 where it states that God turned to the nations to take a people for his name. Thus it is important to know God's name in order to identify God's people. As well Revelation 22:18&19 states that anyone who adds to the Bible or takes away from the Bible will be receive God's judgement for doing so. How important then to leave the Bible intact, including not removing the name Jehovah.
Rudy's comment on 2010-07-10 18:45:26:
in response to Maigyn's comment: in order to draw close to god(Jehovah)you would use god name. For example if you are in front of a judge you use YOUR HONOR.. because that person has earned his title But.. do you every get to know that person on any level? NO, that is why in the bible there is Lord, Almighty, Creator, EXT. and then there is also Gods name Jehovah. In order to draw close to god you would use gods personal name.

Interestingly, true Christians in the first century had no problem using the name of God in their worship. How were they regarded? Read Acts 28:22

its really great to see that jehovah's name is in this translation, god wants his name to be santified. Mt 9:6 Eze 36:23 Eze 38:23

Refer to Maigyn's comment on 2010-05-23 12:43:53. this does noy do with your comment a sect is cult nevertheless that faith has more respect for the name Jehovah that is why they use it most of the time in their discussion. can you provide a good evidence on which sect is a cult that blotch the name Jehovah.
Jehovahs Witness's comment on 2010-09-05 18:46:42:
This is an amazing scripture and Jehovah's name should be without fail used, he wants us to use it. Lets be honest, if someone wrote my name down over 6000 times in a book I think its fair to assume they want us to use it. Plus, the first part of the model prayer is, "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy NAME."
There seem to be two main reasons. First, many claim that the name should not be used because the original way to pronounce it is unknown today. Ancient Hebrew was written without vowels. Therefore, no one today can say for sure exactly how people of Bible times pronounced YHWH. However, should this prevent us from using God’s name? In Bible times, the name Jesus may have been pronounced Yeshua or possibly Yehoshua—no one can say for certain. Yet, people the world over today use different forms of the name Jesus, pronouncing it in the way that is common in their language. They do not hesitate to use the name just because they do not know its first-century pronunciation. Similarly, if you were to travel to a foreign land, you might well find that your own name sounds quite different in another tongue. Hence, uncertainty about the ancient pronunciation of God’s name is no reason for not using it.
A second reason often given for omitting God’s name from the Bible involves a long-standing tradition of the Jews. Many of them hold that God’s name should never be pronounced. This belief is evidently based on a misapplication of a Bible law that states: “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.”—Exodus 20:7.
So how important is the use of Gods name? to leave it on a cliff hanger please read Romans 10:13.

Rose's comment on 2010-09-28 11:04:54:
I am so glad to know what Jesus and Jehovah's feelings are on the matter! Jesus taught his disciples to pray to his Father Jehovah when he taught them the Our Father Prayer. He said to them, "you must pray this way: 'Our Father, who art in... heaven, HALLOWED BE THY NAME' '--To 'hallow' is to MAKE HOLY. So he instructed his disciples to pray to his father and God by making HOLY his name! And what is his name? Jehovah! But some argue that Yahweh is more correct.
From the February 8, 1999 Awake:
Jehovah or Yahweh?
Whereas the name Jehovah appears in the King James Version and other Bible translations, some prefer to use the name Yahweh instead of Jehovah. Which name is correct?
The most ancient Bible manuscripts were written in the Hebrew language. In the Hebrew Scriptures, the divine name occurs almost 7,000 times and is spelled with four consonants—YHWH or JHVH. These four-consonant words are commonly called the Tetragrammaton, or Tetragram, derived from two Greek words meaning “four letters.” Now the question of accurate pronunciation arises because early Hebrew writing consisted of consonants with no vowels to guide the reader. So whether the pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton becomes Yahweh or Jehovah depends on which vowels the reader supplies to the four consonants. Today many Hebrew scholars prefer Yahweh as the true pronunciation.
However, consistency favors Jehovah. In what way? The pronunciation Jehovah has been accepted in English for centuries. Those who object to using this pronunciation should also object to the use of the accepted pronunciation Jeremiah and even Jesus. Jeremiah would need to be changed to Yir‧meyah′ or Yir‧meya′hu, the original Hebrew pronunciations, and Jesus would become Ye‧shu′aʽ (Hebrew) or I‧e‧sous′ (Greek). Hence, many Bible students, including Jehovah’s Witnesses, feel that consistency favors the use of the already well-known English-language “Jehovah” and its equivalent in other languages.
Does It Really Matter?
Some may argue that it does not really matter whether you address Almighty God by a personal name or not, and they are content to speak of and address God as Father or simply as God. Both these terms, however, are titles rather than names and are neither personal nor distinctive. In Bible times the word for God (ʼElo‧him′, Hebrew) was used to describe any god—even the pagan Philistine god named Dagon. (Judges 16:23, 24) So for a Hebrew to tell a Philistine that he, the Hebrew, worshiped “God” would not have identified the true God whom he worshiped.
Of interest is a comment in The Imperial Bible-Dictionary of 1874: “[Jehovah] is everywhere a proper name, denoting the personal God and him only; whereas Elohim partakes more of the character of a common noun, denoting usually, indeed, but not necessarily nor uniformly, the Supreme. . . . The Hebrew may say the Elohim, the true God, in opposition to all false gods; but he never says the Jehovah, for Jehovah is the name of the true God only. He says again and again my God . . . ; but never my Jehovah, for when he says my God, he means Jehovah. He speaks of the God of Israel, but never of the Jehovah of Israel, for there is no other Jehovah. He speaks of the living God, but never of the living Jehovah, for he cannot conceive of Jehovah as other than living.”

I believe as long as you know what his name is Holy.Keep his name Holy.
Jake's comment on 2011-01-30 15:09:03:
As for Maigyn\'s comment i guess this scripture would suffice \"20 Bear in mind the word I said to YOU, A slave is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will persecute YOU also; if they have observed my word, they will observe YOURS also. 21 But they will do all these things against YOU on account of my name, because they do not know him that sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He that hates me hates also my Father. 24 If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have both seen and hated me as well as my Father. 25 But it is that the word written in their Law may be fulfilled, ‘They hated me without cause.\" John chapter 15
Also Matthew 5 11 “Happy are YOU when people reproach YOU and persecute YOU and lyingly say every sort of wicked thing against YOU for my sake. 12 Rejoice and leap for joy, since YOUR reward is great in the heavens; for in that way they persecuted the prophets prior to YOU.
john's comment on 2011-04-03 12:29:46:
I believe that using Jehovah\'sname is very
important as to separate him from all other gods
Brian's comment on 2011-08-24 13:13:26:
It has always interested me that these \"scholars\" remove the name, Jehovah, from their translations but fail to do so with the false gods that are also mentioned in scripture. Molech (or Moloch) comes to mind as does Rephan (Remphan). Acts 7:43 I\'m glad to see it here!
I remember hearing about a woman who learned about Psalms 83:18. She had no idea that God\'s name was indeed Jehovah or that it was in the King James Bible at all. She was greatly angered when she brought it up with her priest and he told her that he did know all about it. But it was his reply that angered her most...\"What\'s in a name?\" he said. On this point alone she decided to leave the church and asked that her name be removed from the prayer list, etc. The priest told her he would remove it but not until she paid her overdue \"tithes.\" So she sent him a check. She soon got a call from the priest...\"I received your check but you forgot to sign it so I can\'t remove your name until I receive a sigend one.\" Her response.. \"Oh, really? Well what\'s in a name, anyway?\"
Lina Everett's comment on 2011-10-13 10:50:57:
I know u all wants Jehovah to continue to be in the bible but God is still God a he still the most high The word God stands alone and the word God is the most Power of all... Jehovah is still God\'s name and once again God is God. never dispute over God\'s word or name. because the word God stands alone the word God is so powerful
Lina Everett's comment on 2011-10-13 11:04:13:
ok i am responding back on some comments i understand now that God true name is Jehovah And i also understand the Lord\'s prayer. thanks for the comments but they also calls God Ali so why do he have so many names. I just know there is only one true God. I do belive that his name is Jehovah i thank you u for showing me the scripture in the Lord\'s prayer Thank you Jesus
Cyntha Kolb's comment on 2011-10-18 17:03:36:
I never knew GOD\'s name was Jehovah or YHWH! I have been to baptist church, a pentecostal church. Been to churches that believe God Jesus and the Holy spirit are one and I\'ve been to churches that believe the opposite. I\'m finding now that there are missing books to the bible and I am confused!
angeleys's comment on 2011-10-29 14:31:02:
I really appreciate this site. Someone at work said something that really bothered me. She said \"Those Jehovah\'s Witnesses don\'t believe in God\". I commented that \"I know for a fact that they do believe in God\". She said, \"Well, maybe they do, but not the same God as everyone else.\" Work was not the place for that discussion, but my question is \"What God does she believe in?\" And I can almost guarantee she doesn\'t even know her God has a name and it happens to be JEHOVAH. The same one that the Jehovah\'s Witnesses believe in.

\"It is hallowed be thy name \" not \" hidden be thy name\" should not have been removed in the st place
Ray's comment on 2012-01-30 23:22:54:
One. This number, when used figuratively, conveys the thought of singleness, uniqueness, as well as unity and agreement in purpose and action. “Jehovah our God is one Jehovah,” said Moses. (De 6:4) He alone is Sovereign. He is unique. He does not share his glory with another, as is the case with pagan trinitarian gods. (Ac 4:24; Re 6:10; Isa 42:8) There is oneness in purpose and activity between Jehovah and Jesus Christ (Joh 10:30) and there should be complete unity of Christ’s disciples with God, with his Son, and with one another. (Joh 17:21; Ga 3:28) Such oneness is illustrated in the marriage arrangement.—Ge 2:24; Mt 19:6; Eph 5:28-32.

Susan's comment on 2012-03-01 19:01:11:
Jehovah\'s name has been removed from the original texts of the Bible almost 7,000 times and replaced w/ LORD. That can lead to much confusion, i.e. Psalm 110:1. What does that mean? and who removed the name and why?
Eddie's comment on 2012-03-12 11:55:02:
I do know that we are seen as a cult or sect by some.We where also seen as this back in the time of ancient Rome.
But ask yourself these questions,what other faith do you know that has used the name of Jehovah so consistently and has preached about that name and in the exact way that Jesus taught his followers,which was door to door & house to house ?
What other faith do you know that has published Billions of magazines,books,pamphlets & brochures for so long in almost every language on earth,not only covering the divine name of God ,but also about his loving purpose for all of Mankind ?
What other faith do you know that has no divisions among themselves,never goes to war against his fellow man regardless of the country that they live in,do not take sides in politics,nationalism or ritualistic practices ?
What other faith do you know that doesn\'t elevate itself over other men,cloth themselves with showy & boasting apparel,adorn their places of worship with Gold,Silver & expensive statues,passes collection plates seeking money all the time,or separates women from men at worship ?
What other faith is willing to go to YOU and come to Your home,on Your time to teach You and ALL of Your family about the word of God,regardless of Who You are,Your social standing or where you may live...FOR FREE ?
NOTW's comment on 2012-07-18 22:50:03:
YHWH pronounced Yahweh is the great I AM. YHWH is my God. YHWH is the original text of the oldest manuscripts. The letter J was the 26th letter added to the alphabet. Was fist used in the 1600\'s. So how do you come up with Jehovah?
Wayne's comment on 2012-07-25 14:44:49:
It\'s pretty obvious that Jehovah had his name taken away, it\'s the bible\'s existance is to sanctify his name. The nations will have to know he is Jehovah.

There are so many people that dispute so many things about the written word. God\'s name is right at the top of the list. God, just like you and i, has a name. That name sets HIM, apart from all other god\'s. I don\'t just serve God or a god. i serve Jehovah God, the one TRUE God.
Cheryl's comment on 2012-09-27 13:07:22:
Can you imagine having a very close friend for years and not know their name. The scriptures urge us (James 4:8) Draw close to God and he will draw close to you. He even assures his worshipers:\"I, Jehovah your God, am grasping your right hand, the one saying to you, \'Do not be afraid. I myself will help you.\"--Isaiah 41:13. Scriptures say there are many \"gods\" and many lords\", there is actually to us one God the Father out of whom all things are and we for him, and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are, and we through him. At 2 Corinthians 4:4 it says the god of this world blinds the minds of the unbelievers that they might not see the good news of God and the Christ who is the image of God, might not shine through. So the god blinding the minds is who \'Satan\', he is also mentioned at 1 John 5:19, which says \"We know we originate with God , but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one\" so when you pray to God the Almighty, use his name Jehovah and you will be noticed by him and you too can draw close to the only true God, and gain everlasting life which only he can give you. \"John 3:16\".

The name Jehovah was removed due to superstitions around the time when King James approved the new translation into English. God's name was too holy even to be mentioned. Jehovah is my personal friend and I use his name in every prayer! I don't want to accidentally pray the wrong GOD!

Regarding the removal of Jehovah's name from ANY Bible...I guess that they didn't read or understand Revelation 22:19.

How interesting that we as humans give more importance to a celebrity name by copying said names to give to our children; yet the name of Jehovah God has been removed from Bible translations. Do we not get angry or bothered, if a coworker forgets our name. Imagine how Jehovah God must feel. Worst are those claiming to serve him, yet teach that his name cannot be pronounced. I will continue to pray to him by using his name.
darren's comment on 2012-12-18 09:17:19:
I feel that we should all know God’s name but we should not use it, after all you would not call your dad by his name would you, that would be disrespectful, likewise with God’s name. If it was real in the old manuscripts then it should not have ever been removed (Revelation 22:18-19).
Romy's comment on 2012-12-24 07:07:45:
Many bible translators agreed with the Jewish tradition of omitting or changing the Divine name. But what did Jesus said about the Jews? Matthew 15:6 "and so you have made the word of God invalid because of your tradition."
Timothy's comment on 2012-12-28 15:13:16:
It’s nice to see so many comments on the truth. Jehovah has been making his name known through his witnesses during the time of the end. The sad reality is that people who claim to be Christian are so ingrained in pagan traditions that they will not believe it and would rather continue their worldly lifestyle. The truth is being made known and Jehovah will let every person on earth know he is Jehovah, when he sends his son Jesus at Armageddon. Jesus said the time of the end will be just the same as Noah’s day when the truth was being told, the signs were being told but no one wanted to listen but would rather ridicule and continue in their lifestyle until the flood came and swept them all away.
Chris's comment on 2013-01-03 17:14:38:
Jehovah is the closest translation of the holy scriptures compared to original Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts. Jehovah wants us to know him. Why do you think He sent His son Jesus Christ? I AM ONE OF JEHOVAH\'S WITNESSES. AND I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT. I am so glad someone came to my door and offered me a bible study!
Kevin's comment on 2013-01-10 08:25:42:
Has anyone given any thought that Jehovah and Jesus may be two different persons? These scriptures are not understandable if they both are just one. (John 14:28) . . .If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going my way to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am. (Mark 13:32) “Concerning that day or the hour nobody knows, neither the angels in heaven nor the Son, but the Father. (Luke 22:42) . . .“Father, if you wish, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, let, not my will, but yours take place.” (If they were one how can they have two wills)? (John 5:30) I cannot do a single thing of my own initiative; just as I hear, I judge; and the judgment that I render is righteous, because I seek, not my own will, but the will of him that sent me. (Two very distinct persons here). In fact, the Bible is peppered with reasoning that Jehovah and Jesus are two very distinct persons). (Mark 12:28-30) . . .“Which commandment is first of all?”
Verse 29, Jesus answered: “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel, Jehovah our God is one Jehovah,
Verse 30, and you must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind and with your whole strength.’
Removing Jehovah’s name from His book opened the door for the prophesied apostasy and it worked very well. Jehovah our Creator got lost in the doctrines of men.

It is his introduction to us, it shows he is unique above all, he is matchless in every way, and shares not his glory. It establishes him reasonably as God alone not part of a god dishonouring triune entity. He is our God, Creator, Statute giver worthy of us getting to know and worshipped: Jehovah God the Almighty. Revelation 15:3, John17:3, Isaiah 33:22, Mark 12:29, Isaiah 42:8, John 14:28.

Well in my mind I knew \"Jehovah\" was the highest father in heaven and so father, now rest on your seat on throne forever till Jesus who is on your hand right side becomes high King from earth when all Christians will be raptured to heaven to see the father and Lord, and will know them face to face and are glad to see own eyes. For best we will see Jesus coming down from and know who is? Amen. Praise the lord Jesus and the Father.
Daniel's comment on 2013-03-21 09:17:15:
I am happy to understand the flow of the bible now. It was meant to be taught and learned in a practical manner. Although original translators meant well, they accidentally confused masses of people. They are not at fault, Satan is, for he is the original cunning serpent. I care even for those who think they are right and do not know it. \"Removal\" of anything changes it\'s dynamic. The name Jehovah belongs and makes reading the bible easier and practical, like it\'s original intent.

Amazing, then please explain to me as a person that does not reside in a SPECIFIC church organization, why it is that in TRUTH the name YHWH or JEHOVAH is actually used over 6500+ times throughout the BIBLE. It\'s God\'s name right? It\'s also a way for the reader to be able to see the separation and difference between FATHER and SON. Or is it because in our quest to abbreviate things it\'s shorter just to say GOD? Just curious.

God is just a title is not a name, like mister or misses (even the Devil is called a god), so if you in a room calling mister or misses who is going to get UB. Thats why our god has a name JEHOVAH
