One of the glorious incommunicable names of JEHOVAH. We find it joined with many Hebrew names in the Scripture. The grand Anthem hymn is called Hallel-Jah, praise the Lord, which we pronounce Hallelujah. So again, when speaking of JEHOVAH in his covenant-relation in Christ, we say Adon Jah, or Adoni, my Adoni Jah. And hence the Hebrews were so fond of calling their children by some name that took in and comprehended somewhat of this name. Thus Isaiah, Jeremiah, Zephaniah, Zechariah, etc.

See Jehovah
