  1. CAUTION - I am discussing the name of God, so if this is offensive to you please do not read this post. Thank you. In school I was taught that יְהוָֹה is pronounced "yah-way". (I mean as far as how people say it phonetically, I am aware it is spelled "Yahweh"). Like a lot of people, I learned this pronunciation prior to really grasping the vowels. I also know this is a "standard" pronunciation given how it is spoken in debates and such. With that as a preface I was speaking today with a non-religious Israeli who said it was pronounced "yeh-ho-vah." At least part of what he said makes sense given that the ו makes a "v" sound in modern Hebrew, while it made a "w" sound in ancient Hebrew. What caught my attention, however, is that he is using three syllables, not two, as everyone uses. I then started thinking, how are we even getting "yah-way" from the vowels given? Something like "yeh-wah" makes more sense, with both vowels making an "eh" sound. Concerned about the number of syllables, I used the "Speech" function on Accordance, and it said "yeh-ho". Yeh-ho? I was surprised at this "Speech" option since it seems like it needs to end in an "ah" sound because of the ה. So now I have 4 options. 1 - yah-way 2 - yeh-ho-vah 3 - yeh-wah 4 - yeh-ho Does anyone have thoughts? Thank you, Kristin
