May Yahweh bless and sustain you, and the brethren around the world.
I have a question about the sacred name. I believe Yahweh as the personal name for the creator. I also don’t have a problem with most titles and attributes for Yahweh. However, I was reading a book about the sacred names titled, “Hallowed Be Your Name- Sanctifying God’s Sacred Name” In it, it says that “God” has many names. It made a quote of Ex 34:14, which reads, “Exo 34:14 For you shall not bow to another Elohim, for YAHWEH whose name is Jealous, He is a jealous Elohim; This surprised me, especially since this is in a Hebrew Roots bible, as well as The Scriptures bible. With so many verses indicating that Yahweh is our creators personal name, how do I rectify this seemingly contradiction? If there are any other seemingly contradictions that you know of, please let me know, so I can be ready to give an answer when needed.
Thanks in advance.
It’s true that Yahweh has many Names, but in Exodus 3: 13-15, He told us that He wants us to remember Him by the Name Yahweh:
Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?” God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’” God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘Yahweh the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ This [Yahweh] is my name forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation.”
If you read His Name is Yahweh, you will find many other things that will help and interest you.

Thanks for that excellent article entitled “Israel’s worst enemy”. It is sad that our politicians do not look at the truth while making wrong decisions..
Please keep up the good work.
You’re right. Thank you.
The names of Canaanite gods are in the Bible because Abraham and our early patriarchs did not then know the name of Yahweh. Remember, the Canaanites gods were polytheistic.
Enosh was the first person to call on the Name of Yahweh. See Genesis 4: 26. He was Seth’s son and Adam’s grandson. You would enjoy reading His Name is Yahweh.
