Yahweh is one of the most significant words in all of the Hebrew language. We hear echoes of it when Moses encounters the LORD at the burning bush of Mount Sinai and asks for the name of the God who was commanding him to deliver the Israelites from Egyptian bondage. The word Yahweh is the present tense of the Hebrew verb “to be.” Other English translations of Yahweh’s name could include “The Self-Existing One,” “The Being,” or simply “Is.” Learn more at my LDS Living article here.
