Four Vowels

Yod-Hay-Uau-Hay

Subject: Lew, what is your take on this video clip?

Dear brother,

I took time to listen to the whole “spiel” before replying.

What we have here is a classic example of misdirection, and equivocation.

The first sign of casuistry (casuistry - the use of clever but unsound reasoning)

appears quickly, as the narrator states the four lettered Name is made up of consonants.

He then inserts that those who promote a wide array of different pronunciations don’t know anything about Hebrew.

I’ll appeal to someone that lived while the Temple (Hekel) was standing, and definitely DID know Hebrew:

Josephus (Flavius Yusef) in his War of the Yahudim book 5, chapter 5 v.7 states:

“A mitre also of fine linen encompassed his head, which was tied by a blue ribbon, about which there was another golden crown, in which was engraven the sacred name - it consists of four vowels.”

The narrator in this presentation goes on a “rules” explanation of consonants and vowels, and seems to not be aware of the fact the Name has no consonants. “Closed syllables” (CvC) and “open syllables” (Cv) is used as the vehicle to explain the pronunciation of the Name, and yet no pronunciation is ever offered. Instead, a substitution “translation” is emphasized, eliminating the whole approach to the Name with ideas like “character”. The word “character” in Latin is persona, and means MASK. I’m not trying to use cleverness to deceive, I’m telling it straight, just as it is. If we do not call on the Name of our Creator, but instead mask His Name for the sake of unity, we cannot truly know the identity of the one we are “calling” on. This presentation leads nowhere, except to show contempt for those who pursue the pronunciation of the Name, which Natsarim are guardians of. He accuses us of spreading chaos.

When Yahuah states the following, He is not referring to His “character”, but His Name:

Isa 42:8 “I am Yahuah, that is My Name, and My esteem I do not give to another, nor My praise to idols.”

Exo 9:16 “And for this reason I have raised you up, in order to show you My power, and in order to declare My Name in all the earth.”

The pharaoh did not know Yahuah, and would have laughed if Mosheh had referred to Him as this narrator has.

Exo 5:2: “And Pharaoh said, ‘Who is Yahuah, that I should obey His voice to let Yisharal go? I do not know Yahuah, nor am I going to let Yisharal go.’”

What if AliYahu (Elijah) had called upon some substituted Name at Mount Carmel?

  This video smells like Jesuits are behind it. This site also promotes the letter shapes sometimes called proto-Sinaitic script of the Hyksos, a primitive adaptation of Egyptian hieroglyphics. This script was never developed beyond a handful of letters based on hieroglyphs, the bulk of which discovered on cave walls believed to be turquoise mines in the Sinai peninsula. They were near the ancient ruins of an Egyptian temple dedicated to the goddess Hathor, the mistress of turquoise. You can research this script and the site “Serabit ha’Khadem”. No one ever saw Yod-Hay-Uau-Hay written in such letters, yet many Natsarim are promoting it all over the place on hats, shirts, and web designs. The Hyksos were Canaanites, and imitated what they saw on Egyptian temple writings. This is all there is to the origin of such letter shapes. Yahuah didn’t write in the script of the Egyptians, or the Hyksos.

No matter who says it, or how often you may hear it, these are not the "original" forms for the Hebrew letters, or their precursers.  They are Egyptian in origin, and crudely copied by Canaanites, the Hyksos:

This is the palaeo-Hebrew script, mistakenly referred to as "Phoenician" by modern scholars.  The first to use the term "Phoenician" was the 5th-century BCE historian known as Herodotus.  Being Greek, he used his own Greek language to describe the "sea people" that lived in the land occupied by Yisharal, the Tyrians, and Sidonians.  He lumped them all together into the term "Phoenicia" which means "date palm" in Greek.  Here's the script used by the ancient Hebrews:

The Name is on the bottom line in the photo above.

Here is a letter chart to compare ancient Hebrew to others:

 

Yahuah and Yahudah compared:

Isa / YashaYahu 52:5, 6: “And now, what have I here,” declares Yahuah, “that My people are taken away for naught? Those who rule over them make them wail,” declares Yahuah, “and My Name is despised all day continually.

Therefore My people shall know My Name, in that day, for I am the One who is speaking. See, it is I.”

The Letters of the Name Are Vowels
YUSEF BEN MATITHYAHU, 1ST CENTURY HISTORIAN, SAYS THEY ARE.

The historian called "Josephus" described seeing the four vowels written in Hebrew letters on the headpiece of the kohen ha gadol: "A mitre also of fine linen encompassed his head, which was tied by a blue ribbon, about which there was another golden crown, in which was engraven the sacred [qodesh] Name [yod-hay-uau -hay]: it consists of four vowels." www.fossilizedcustoms.com/transliteration.html
