    Brianna: You're right. 6 months after I was Saved, I wondered why all capital letters. Discovered it's Jehovah! That's how I read it every time. There's a better understanding with more strength,when I read His Name as Jehovah. It's amazing no one knows how His Name is spelled or pronounced,seeing His Name was spelled with no vowels.

    V. - " ....., to keep them alive in famine". no doubt refers to physical food, but also to a famine of the preaching of the truth of His Word. Where there is no preaching of the truth, the soul ends in death.

    Brianna - I am sorry for my part in your 'name' discussion; I didn't realize you are Jewish.

    Vs. 21 - Just to clarify. The name being referred to is Yahweh Jehovah. In Vs. 22 you will see that it uses capital LORD. If you research why that lord is all capital, you find that the Divine Name was taken out of this Bible and replaced with LORD. When translators do this, can people apply vs. 21? Do they even know that name?
