How do I say the Messiah’s name?

“Who has ascended up into heaven, and descended? Who has gathered the wind in his fists? Who has bound the waters in his garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son’s name, if you know?” – Proverbs 30:4

If you have read the previous articles, then you can answer this psalmist with confidence!  His name is YaHuWaH, and his son’s name is Yahushua!

If you need help pronouncing the name of the father, please read “How do I say his name?

The name of the Messiah, the son of YaHuWaH, is spelled with the Hebrew letters…


From right to left, the letters are Yod-Hay-Waw-Shin-Waw-Ayin

This name, like many Hebrew names, is a combination of parts of other names and words.  In this case, it is a combination of a name and a word.  So how do we say this name?

1) יהו – The first  3 letter of his name are Yod-Hay-Waw.  This part of his name is part of the name of his Father!  YaH-oo (the waw makes the sound of an “oo,” as in “tooth.”).

2) שוע – the last 3 letters of his name are Shin-Waw-Ayin.    This comes from a Hebrew word meaning deliverance or salvation.  Sh-oo-ah (again, the waw makes the sound of an “oo” as in tooth).

When you put it all together, you get יהושוע – Yah-oo-sh-oo-ah, Yahushua, Yahuwshuwah – YaHuWaH is deliverance!  YaHuWaH is Salvation!
