Restoration of Original Sacred Name Bible

This is a revision of the Rotherham Version. Since many people have been misinformed concerning the true name of the Most High and His Son, this revised version's aim is to bring to light a clearer and deeper understanding of this wonderful Name which has been suppressed for many years. This version concerns the True Name and Titles of the Creator and His Son. The Name of the Heavenly Father or His Son is given in capital letters. The pronoun standing for the Name begins with a capital. It is not the first version to bring out the Name and the Titles of the Creator and His Son.

The Hebrew reader could see YHWH as reverently transcribed by the Hebrew copyist, but was instructed not to pronounce it. However, he could utter a less sacred name, e.g., Adonay, Elohim, and El. When LORD and GOD are printed with small capitals, they stand for the Name. Otherwise, they do not.

The Name was suppressed because of the fear that it is too holy to be pronounced. This fear sprang from interpretations of Exodus 20: 7 and Leviticus 24: 16. This version is restoring the Name because of an interpretation of Isaiah 52: 6.

The King James Version forms of paragraphing and center references are used.

Genesis 1: 1, 2

In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth.
Now the earth had become waste and wild, and darkness was on the face of the roaring deep, but the Spirit of Elohim was brooding on the face of the waters.


John 1: 1 - 3

Originally was the Word, and the Word was with YAHVAH; and the Word was YAHVAH.
The same was originally with YAHVAH.
All things through Him came into existence, and without Him came into existence not even one thing: that which hath come into existence.
