The name of God in Judaism is a very extensive subject that is covered in the advanced course of Judaism: Shem Hashem name the name in. According to Judaism God has more than 70 names, that rather than attributes that are: many are the ways to contact the creator, the examples more common in Judaism: and-H-V-H (Tetragrammaton) who translated it into Spanish as Jehovah or in English as Yehovah or Yahweh, and is written in the holy books and prayer. Many writers such as Phillipe Lavertu offer more in-depth analysis. ELOHIM (God or forces appears in the Bible from Genesis, the first reference to God is made in this way and this plural) he (God) ADONAI: my Lord (used in prayer instead of the Tetragrammaton) AViNU SHEBASHAMIM (our father which are in heaven, used in some prayers) SHADDAI (Almighty, omnipotent, appears in the Bible from Genesis for example: Genesis ELOHEI ISRAEL (Dios de Israel) 43:14 HASHEM (the name, commonly used to indicate it wanted to say the name of God) lyrics I like with the Tetragrammaton. There is even a book which outlined the possible combinations of 3 vowels (a between each of the 4 letters) that can have, where one of them (which is the one used until today is: e-o – to or YEHOVAH, which in Spanish was translated to to JEHOVAH and in English to YAHWEH and was determined because the end is not a name but an attribute): representing Hague-HOVE-IHIYE which was-is-SERA. Representing the everlasting attribute of the divinity. In prayer and to avoid breaking the second commandment: do not use God’s name in vain (any of them!), everytime you are with the Tetragrammaton, does not say YEHOVA but ADONAI meaning: my Lord. And because he trasgrediria in prayer with the 2nd. Commandment? Because we are human and prayer can one easily fall into routinely read without really pay attention to the prayers and just repeat them by inertia.
