Names of God

  1. Jehovah Jireh: Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham called the name of the place, *The-Lord-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.” Gen 22:13, 14 NKJV *Heb. YHWH Yireh
  2. El Roi: Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, You-Are-*the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, “Have I also here seen Him who sees me?”Gen 16:13 NKJV*Heb. El Roi
  3. Jehovah Shalom: Then the Lord said to him, “Peace be with you; do not fear, you shall not die.” 24 So Gideon built an altar there to the Lord, and called it *The-LordIs-Peace. To this day it is still in Ophrah of the Abiezrites. Judges 6:23, 24 NKJV*Heb. YHWH Shalom
  4. Ebenezer: Samuel took a suckling lamb and offered it as a whole burnt offering to the Lord. Then Samuel cried out to the Lord for Israel, and the Lord answered him. Now as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel. But the Lord thundered with a loud thunder upon the Philistines that day, and so confused them that they were overcome before Israel. 11 And the men of Israel went out of Mizpah and pursued the Philistines, and drove them back as far as below Beth Car. Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name *Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.” 1 Sam 7:9-12 NKJV *Lit. Stone of Help
  5. Jehovah Shammah: All the way around shall be eighteen thousand cubits; and the name of the city from that day shall be: THE LORD IS THERE.” Ezek 48:35 NKJV
