Pronounced, by modern scholars, Yahveh or Yahweh (Hebrew: He Who is). Name of God in the Old Testament, occurring about 6000 times. It is the very name considered by the Jews as great, glorious, terrible, hidden, mysterious, to blaspheme which merited death (Leviticus 24). Designating The Being, or, as God Himself expresses it, "I am who am" (Exodus 3), it was revealed to Moses on Mount Horeb as the incommunicable name of God.
