The Bible uses different names for God in His different capacities. One of these names is
Jehovah. Jehovah is God in His relationship with those He covenanted with. Under the title
Jehovah there are ten redemptive names. It is those names that I want to share with you tonight.
The first redemptive name is Jehovah-Jireh which means God will see and provide. It is found in
Genesis chapter 22.
Genesis 22:3-15 (KJV)
3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young
men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and
went unto the place of which God had told him.
4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go
yonder and worship, and come again to you.
6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took
the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son.
And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went
both of them together.
9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and
laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and
he said, Here am I.
12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I
know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket
by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the
stead of his son.
14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the
mount of the LORD it shall be seen.
15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
The next is Jehovah-Ropheka. Jehovah-Ropheka means Jehovah that health thee.
Exodus 15:22-26 (KJV)
22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and
they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.
23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were
bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.
24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into
the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, andthere he proved them,
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-Ropheka)
Number three is Jehovah-Nissi. Jehovah my banner. A banner was used in war to fly over the
army and it was, also, used in the marriage ceremony as a symbol of God’s covering and
protection over the bride and groom.
Exodus 17:8-15 (KJV)
8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.
9 And Moses said unto Joshua, 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:
Next is Jehovah-Mekaddishkem or Jehovah which doth sanctify you.
Exodus 31:12-13 (KJV)
12 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is
a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD
that doth sanctify you.
Jehovah-Shalom means God my peace.
Judges 6:20-24 (KJV)
20 And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them upon this
rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so.
21 Then the angel of the LORD put forth the end of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the flesh
and the unleavened cakes; and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the
unleavened cakes. Then the angel of the LORD departed out of his sight.
22 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 Jehovahshalom: unto this day it is yet in
Ophrah of the Abiezrites.Jehovah-Zeba oth means Jehovah of hosts. The word “hosts” means a mass of people or a mass of
people organized for war i.e. an army.

one gate of Reuben, one gate of Judah, one gate of Levi.
32 And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three gates; and one gate of Joseph,
one gate of Benjamin, one gate of Dan.

with me (Jehovah-Shammah); thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

of the LORD for ever.

righteousness and for those who want to know God.
