Jehovah (je-ho'vah), he will be. A title of the supreme Being, indicative of eternal and immutable self-existence. Exodus 6:3. It is similar to the title "I am." Exodus 3:14. In the English Bible it is usually translated "Lord" and printed in small capitals. It occurs first in the second chapter of Genesis. As distinct from Elohim, it signifies the God of revelation and redemption, the God of the Jews, while Elohim is the God of nature, the Creator and Preserver of all men. See Jah, God.
