Yahweh

This is our best estimate of how the divine name יהוה (yhwh) would have been pronounced (it was written without vowels). In traditional English translations this name is rendered "LORD". I have used "Adonai" rather than Yahweh or "LORD" because this seems the best way to keep the flavor of the original usage in modern English.
