11 comments on “The Tetragrammaton Has Been Reversed

  1. The Hebrews is from right to left. So it is to them and has always been YHWH. The image I see above is written from left to right HWHY. That is English not Hebrew. We read from left to right in English. But, that would be reading the entire language backwards and make no sense. You can’t change a word without changing the whole language. When your name is written in Hebrew it is read from right to left and read correctly if reversed it would be incorrectly pronounced. We in English write backwards to them in Hebrew but they understand that and correctly translate it.

    • Philip,Its pointless trying to reason with “John”. He thinks because he is Anointed, anything he says is right. If we are to apply his reasoning, EVERY word from the Hebrew should be reversed when translated, so we are “loyal” to how the Hebrew was written. ALL words in Hebrew are written and read from right to left.
      So lets be consistant then, John. When we look at the Hebrew, lets reverse ALL the Hebrew words, because ALL of them are inspired by Yhwh God.
      When TRANSLATION occurs, the word is written so it is read in our language.
      Its not “reversed” in English because translators are being dis-respectful of Yhwh God.
      This is what needs to occur, when a translation occurs.
      There are TWELVE languages that are read, right to left. When they are translated, the same thing happens. The words are “reversed” so we can read the words and sentances from left to right.
      Its not a matter of disrespected, this is what happns when translation is needed.

      • This blog originally was started with one group in mind and not the general public. Later that changed.

        This article was directed to a group I was associated with that had no idea that when they looked at the tetragrammaton itself that they should read it from right to left.

        What seems obvious to most, wasn’t to them.

        Why do you think I went into detail with explaining the position of the Hebrew characters?

        They were looking at the tetragrammaton and did not realize the first character is the first one on the right. In their minds they had reversed it.

        I wanted them to look at it correctly.

        Below is an excerpt from the article:

        Any recognition, interpretation, or discussion of the Divine Name must acknowledge the truth of how it literally appears in the Tetragrammaton.

        For teachers, it’s important to teach from Chapter literally, from the beginning. We mentally have to reverse God’s name because of how our language is structured. But it’s important to realize and remember we do so. So its good to explain why HWHY is actual and then make the necessary linguistic reversal. When a person then looks at the Tetragrammaton, it will make sense.

        I am not going to address your comment:

        “Its pointless trying to reason with “John”. He thinks because he is Anointed, anything he says is right. If we are to apply his reasoning, EVERY word from the Hebrew should be reversed when translated, so we are “loyal” to how the Hebrew was written.

        You don’t know me personally and you don’t know what I think.
