The names of God

Jehovah Shalom – The Lord our Peace (Judges 6 vs 22-24) And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the Lord, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord GOD! for because I have seen an angel of the Lord face to face. 23 And the Lord said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die. 24 Then Gideon built an altar there unto the Lord, and called it Jehovah shalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

Jehovah Eezer – The Lord our Helper (Psalms 121 v 1-2) will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

Jehovah Jireh – The Lord will Provide (Psalm 78) Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?

Jehovah Rapha – The Lord our Healer (Exodus 15:26) And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Jehovah Roi – The Lord is my Shepherd (Psalms 23:1) The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Jehovah Sabaoth – The Lord of Host(of armies) (2 Samuel 5:10) And David went on, and grew great, and the Lord God of hosts was with him.

Jehovah Mekeddeshem – Lord who Santifies(Jehovah M’Kaddesh)(Hebrews 13:12)
Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

Jehovah Nissi – The Lord our Banner (Exodus 17:8-16) Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9 And Moses said unto Joshua, [2] Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. 10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. 11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. 14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. 15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi: [3] 16 For he said, Because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
