Names of God in Hebrew Not Mobile-friendly

Last updated: 03/15/17

First Time Visitor Notes

This is a massive project! There are over 365 names of God in the Bible! The names usually appear more than once. I have multiple sources from which to work (The Names of God flip chart style calendar from CBN, cassette tapes by Pat Robertson of CBN and The Peace and Power of Knowing God's Name by Kay Arthur as well as the Bible and the Internet). What is most important is that there is a scriptural basis for each name. Many lists of the names of God are in circulation without scripture references. These should always be checked out before accepting them. We may not make up names for God. God must reveal his names to us. Once we become aware of his revealed name(s), we are authorized to feel loved and begin to depend on his nature. I chose to use the NIV Bible for the scripture references. The exact name may not be in the NIV. If you want the name to match exactly, your first alternate translation should be The New Living Translation. I purposely did not give links for this translation so you would see how translations differ slightly but the meaning is the same if the translators did their research carefully. Remember, the Bible was written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Koine Greek (not classical). Any other language Bible is a translaton. Many people end up learning Hebrew and Greek in order to understand better.

(If you click on CBN Radio, close the window for CBN Radio if when you leave this page you find more than one music item is playing on your PC.) If you open too many windows at once from this page, CBN will cut off. (See above on the right)

All scripture links were originally set up to be mobile-friendly. Now the once PC-friendly links have been slimmed down in data size so that mobile devices can use those links. The mobile links actually forward to the once PC-friendly links. When I discovered this I understtood one day the mobile links will be phased out and I will have a crisis. So I took a whole day and changed the links.

God is infinite. God is knowable. He reveals Himself to us by the things He does and by His names. Life brings many challenges to each of us. When we run to God, we find He is always there. One way to run to God is to align our need with one of His names. The highest Name is Jesus. Matthew 1:21 (New International Version) "She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus because he will save his people from their sins."

What is your need today? Which name of God will help you to connect with God today so He can help you? If one name of God is "The Lord Is Peace," you can personalize it by saying, "The Lord is my peace" or "Lord, you are my peace" or "Thank you, Lord for giving me your peace" or "Impart to me the peace of your presence, Lord" or "Impart to me peace through the your being present in my life, especially in the area of _________."

This is a long page. You can choose the letter of the alphabet for the names of God that start with that letter. Click on the letter and you will be there! Click on "TOP" to go back up. (Use Internet Explorer to avoid scrolling)

All the Books of the Bible

Psalm 138:2 says God puts his Word above his name. So we don't need any secret societies claiming to know the real name of God. We also don't need to recite his names as if they were magic words. His names are so you can know him.

This points out Jesus is the Word.
