יהוה IS GOD'S NAME AS IT IS WRITTEN IN THE HEBREW LANGUAGE.

YAHWEH (יהוה) - THE COVENANT GOD OF ISRAEL, YHWH, IN THE ORIGINAL HEBREW.

ACCORDING TO JEWISH CUSTOM, BECAUSE OF REVERENCE, THE DIVINE NAME WAS NOT TO BE SPOKEN, SO THE HEBREW WORDS FOR Lord AND God WERE SUBSTITUTED. WHENEVER THE WORDS Lord AND God APPEAR IN LARGE AND SMALL CAPITAL LETTERS, THE ORIGINAL HEBREW READS YHWH.

IN MANY CASES "LORD" IS A TITLE OF HONOR AND MAJESTY USED IN ADDRESSING GOD, OR A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE SPECIAL NAME YAHWEH (KJV-RSV "THE LORD").
