Can anyone tell me what it says?

Can anyone look up Exodus 6:3, and tell me if the name Jehovh is there? I looked it up in my King James Version of the Bible and it says ...........but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. Just would like to know that I am not the only one who saw this, please will someone look it up and tell me what their King James Bible says there? Please no arguements, just answers. Thanks to all who look for me.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jehovah

    I looked it up on a few different sites and saw different things...

    I think depending on which version, is going to be what it says, wether it's Lord, Jahovah, OR Yahweh

  • KJV has Jehovah and NKJV has Lord.. Jehovah means "Lord"... There are other scriptures which say Jehovah such as Ge. 22:14 Jehovah Nissi - which means the Lord is my banner, or Judges 6:24 Jehovah Shalom - meaning the Lord is my peace. Some versions use Jehovah, some use Lord, and the Jewish bible uses Adonai.

  • Exodus 6:3 (King James Version) And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.


    Exodus 6:3 (Amplified Bible) I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as God Almighty [El-Shaddai], but by My [a]name the Lord [Yahweh--the redemptive name of God] I did not make Myself known to them [in acts and great miracles].(A)


    Exodus 6:3 (New American Standard Bible) and I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as (A)God Almighty, but by (B)My name, [a]LORD, I did not make Myself known to them. Exodus 6:3 Heb YHWH, usually rendered LORD


    So if in the OT Jehovah, Yahweh, was the redemptive name of God. What is the redemptive name of God in the NT?

  • God gave us his personal name so that we could distiguise him from all other Gods. That is why his name isn't God. Because there are many Gods. He wanted us to know who he was. So, I feel confident in using his name because I know that he is the True God.

  • http://www.bible.org/page.php?page_id=220 - The Names of God


    What you have said still doesn't answer the question above if in the OT Jehovah, Yahweh, was the redemptive name of God. What is the redemptive name of God in the NT?


    Yahweh is not the only word for God, what about Adonai, Theos, Kurios, Despotes?
