(jeh hoh' vuh) English transliteration of Hebrew text's current reading of divine name Yahweh. Hebrew text, however, represents scribe's efforts to prevent people from pronouncing the divine name by combining consonants of Yahweh and vowels of Hebrew word adonai (“Lord”) so readers would pronounce adonai rather than risk blasphemy by improperly pronouncing divine name. See God; Lord; Yahweh.
