“Jehovih” Instead of “Yahweh”?

Question: Why does your Bible and publications use the name “Jehovih” instead of “Jehovah” or “Yahweh”? I have never seen this before. What basis do you have for using this strange spelling?

Reply: The form of the Creator’s Name as published in the Oahspe is rendered as “Jehovih.” This can also be found in the Old Testament of Judaism in the form of “Yehovih.” In fact some of our previous publications did use the latter spelling, but for the sake of consistency, we decided it would be best to use the standard Faithist form of “Jehovih.” Faithists have been used to this form of the Eternal Creator’s Name since the publication of the Oahspe Bible.

Regarding the use of this particular rendering, again, as noted above, the Name “Jehovih” can be found in the Hebrew Scriptures. There are more than 300 instances of the Name “Jehovih” (יֱהֹוִה). See entry number 3069 in Strong’s Concordance. The Name “Jehovih” is equivelant to the Hebrew “Yahweh” or the Anglicized edition “Jehovah.”
