Judaism: Are the Jews Really Called by his Name?

Yehowdeh, the true name of the ‘Jews’

In my last two articles I discussed that the name Yehowah is the true name of our creator and that his son’s name is Yehowshuwa. And that how the translators have changed or replaced the true names with false ones. This first started when the Tanakh (Old Testament) was translated from Hebrew into Greek. They have altered other names also, the one I would like to discuss today is the true Hebrew name of a Jew. It is said that the Jews get their name from the name Judah.  Claiming that the Hebrew name is Yehuwdah or Yehudi. In Greek it is written as ιουδα Iouda, then to English as Judah. We get this name mentioned in Genesis 29 when Leah said she will praise Yehowah.

Genesis 29:35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise YEHOWAH: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

3034  ’ō-w-ḏeh אוֺדֶה will I praise.

There is a problem with this name Judah, because the word ‘praise’ is not #3034  Yadah like Strong’s concordance may suggest, if you look at the Hebrew text like the BHS the Hebrew word for praise is ‘owdeh. So the name to praise Yehowah would be Yehowdeh? That would be more accurate than Yehuwdah. From where do we get a long U sound in there instead of a long O sound. It states clearly that Leah named her son to praise (‘owdeh) Yehowah. If you search the Hebrew bible you will find the word Yehowdeh used once in Nehemiah both in the BHS and in the Leningrad Codex. Stong’s concordance directs you to the word Yadah, but once again that is not what is said in the Hebrew scriptures.

Nehemiah 11:17  And Mattaniah the son of Micha, the son of Zabdi, the son of Asaph, was the principal to begin the thanksgiving in prayer.

יְהוֺדֶה  yə·hō·w·ḏeh — 1 Occurrence in Nehemiah 11:17 translated as thanksgiving but would more appropriately be translated as praising Yehowah in prayer.

So the true word for praising and thanking Yehowah would be Yehowdeh. So Leah would of named her son Yehowdeh. So how and why the change? Some may say that Yehuwdah is not much different than Yehowdeh, but when they get into translating Yehuwdah, it becomes Judah and eventually as Jew . Totally different than Yehowdeh. When a person says the name Jew or Judah, they are not praising Yehowah, but if they say Yehowdeh, then they are thanking and praising Yehowah.

This has been another deliberate alteration of the bible, what is disturbing is that not many people know or want to know. All the people who say they study the bible, like bible scholars, what exactly are they studying? There is not much clear information on this.  As for the ‘Jewish’ people who call themselves Yehudi would it not be better to be called Yehowdeh. Then all those who say the word Yehowdeh would be praising Yehowah.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray , and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

So what do you think? Is it important to you? If the ‘Yehowdeh’ (Jew) are not allowed to say the name of  Yehowah, would they be allowed to say Yehowdeh. Now this brings me to the religion of Judaism. If the word Judah is incorrect, then the religion of Judaism is based on a false name. One of the tenets in Judaism is that they don’t say the name of Yehowah (YHWH), they substitute his name with the word Adonay or HaShem.  And that there was an actual ban on saying his name. The Torah does not forbid the use of his name, we are to praise his name. It is in the Talmudic teachings that puts a ban on his name.

Jeremiah 23:27
Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.

Malachi 1:6
A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith YEHOWAH of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?

We can see that there has been an attempt to erase, eliminate or change the true name of our Creator and other names that have the Creator’s name in it, but if one searches diligently one can find the truth, but how many people are truly seeking the truth. There is not many. It’s a shame because the people are being persuaded  into believing a lie. There are many conflicting articles out there, all to confuse the ordinary person trying to seek the truth. There are many organizations out there dedicated to spread and push all these lies, like false names and false doctrines. It is up to you to seek the truth on your own.

Zechariah 13:9
And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It my people: and they shall say, YEHOWAH my God.

Joel 2:32
And everyone who calls on the name of  YEHOWAH will be saved

Acts 2:21
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord  YEHOWAH shall be saved. (Peter quoting Joel of the old testament which has the name Yehowah written in it but replaced with the word LORD in most bibles.)

As we see in the above verses it is very important to know the true name of the Almighty because all that call upon his name will be saved. It is as simple as that. This is what the Messiah Yehowshuwa came to tell us.   … I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it  (John 17:26)
