Mark 2:22 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”
Luke 5:39 And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for they say, ‘The old is better.'”
Therefore the one Name of God to use in both the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures is Iahvah (see how this is accomplished below under the subheading “How to create Iahvah from Iahvva”)
The Old Wine
Zechariah 14:9 In that day יָהָּוָהּ will be king over all the Earth and shall be one and His Name one. יָהָּוָהּ it shall be.
Zechariah 14:9 In that day Iahvah will be king over all the Earth and shall be one and His Name one. Iahvah it shall be.
The New Wine
Romans 8:15 So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received Our Father’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Ἀββᾶ, Πατήρ.”

Yahvah and Iahvvah
Both the “yodh” in Hebrew and the diacritic on the initial “Alpha” in the Name Ἀββᾶ in ancient Koine Greek may be pronounced /ee/ for the Name of God.
Yahvah would become Iahvah (pronounced ee-ahv’-ah)
Ἀββᾶ would become Iahvvah (pronounced the same way)
Both would sound identical and contain “ahv” the pronunciation of the ancient root word meaning “father”.
We delve further into languages of the past to see if there is anything that might affect the ancient Name of God. We know that Biblical names that start with /j/ should be /y/ or /ee/.
Iahvah (ee-ahv’-ah) is possible for God’s ultimate ancient Name. I am testing it out. It sounds beautiful and poetic so it is a definite possibility. Note that it contains “ahv” the ancient root sound meaning “father”.
How it possible to create Iahvah and to harmonize the Hebrew and Christian Greek Scriptures
HOW TO CREATE IAHVAH USING ENGLISH PHONETIC TRANSLITERATION – THE TRANSLITERATION OF THE ENGLISH PHONICS TO GREEK
Enter Iahvvah into the text entry field and hit space bar
In this case the Hebrew and the Greek are identical and the Hebrew Tetragrammaton is preserved and the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures are harmonized with regard to the Divine Name. It may be necessary to adjust our understanding of the phonological evolution of ancient Hebrew and Greek. Only by using English phonics was this possible to understand. Also, for this to work, every Hebrew scholar on Earth would have to agree that the third letter of the Hebrew Tetragrammton was originally pronounced as a vav or /v/ and not a waw or /w/, and the final Divine Name of God would be Iahvah in accordance with Zechariah 14:9 which states God will only have one Name.
The Aramaic Scriptures would also be harmonized with the Hebrew Scriptures and Christian Greek Scriptures. Beth Marduth, The Syriac Institute translates God’s Name as “ia”
The Tetragrammaton יָהָּוָהּ Iahvah (YHVH)
also contracts to Iah יָהּ and Iahu יָהָּוּ
Greek Ἀββᾶ Iahvvah (Mark 14:36, Romans 8:15, Galatians 4:6) Phonological Evolution
Mystery of Y Solved and it’s not a J.
Here is a quote from “The Rise, Decline and Fall of The Roman Religion” by James B. Hannay.
The Rise, Decline and Fall of the Roman Religion by By James B. Hannay 257 Pages, Originally published 1925 ISBN ISBN 0-7873-0369-0
“Both Y and I are pronounced like double ee, and never, as in English”.
“Or perhaps our clerics were so ignorant as to mistake the German I (of Luther’s Bible), which has a crook like our J, and so fell into an error which has hindered English scholarship for all these centuries. All I’s in the Bible-names (printed as J), should be pronounced as Ee or Y, and the well-known name Joseph should be Yoseph”.
The voiced palatal approximant is a type of consonant used in many spoken languages. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is ⟨j⟩. The equivalent X-SAMPA symbol is j, and in the Americanist phonetic notation it is ⟨y⟩.
The j sound in English is an example of a palatal consonant, while the y sound in English (akin to the j sound in many other languages) is an example of a palatal approximant.
In the former case (palatal consonant), the tongue is raised and flattened to touch the palate while in the latter case (palatal approximant) it does not touch the palate completely, allowing air to flow between the palate and the tongue.
While the modern Latin script has the letter j, Latin itself did not use j to start with and did not have a well-defined palatal consonant sound. Words like Iapheth, Iesus, Ieremiah, etc. were meant to be pronounced starting with a palatal approximant. In due course, due to natural phonological evolution, they began to be pronounced with a palatal consonant in certain Roman colonies. This gave rise to the need for distinction between the two sounds in writing. The letter j, which was really special cursive form of i became the symbol for this distinct new sound.
Yodh is always a “j” pronounced as a “y”. It is a palatal approximant in language.
But it confuses people to no end.

The Hebraic poetry as evidence of the correct utterance of the Tetragrammaton
based on an article by Navah at TORM
One of the strongest evidences of the correct pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton יָהָּוָהּ Iahvah can be found in the Hebraic poetry. We need to know that unlike the western poetry which heavily relies on rhyming at the end of verses, the Hebraic poetry uses a different type of rhymes called Hebrew puns.
When Hebraic poetry is used in connection with the Name, it comes to hint us of the correct pronunciation.
Now, let us find how the Tetragrammaton is used with the Hebraic poetry in Eze 1:3. We read in Hebrew:
הָיֹ֣ה הָיָ֣ה דְבַר־֠ יָהָּוָהּ
hay-oh hay-ah da-var Iahvah
There was surely the word of YHVH
This wording seems unnecessary; it could have been said and it came to pass which in Hebrew is וַיְהִ֥י and is a common expression of the same idea. But in Eze 1:3 the rhyming of two forms of the Hebrew verb hay-ah היה, hay-oh hay-ah, with Iahvah is very Hebraic and forms a beautiful pun.
This rhyming would not work with “Yahweh”.
Another evidence is found in Exo 9:3, where a similar rhyming appears:
יַד־ יָהָּוָהּ הֹויָ֗ה
yad Iahvah hoy-ah
The hand of YHVH is
Again, this wording and rhyming seem unnecessary, but it is used for a purpose. It is obvious that the Creator has rhymed the verb hay-ah with His Name Iahvah. The word hoy-ah (feminine form) in Exo 9:3 rhymes with the masculine form of ha-vah, הוה.
But probably the most compelling evidence in Hebraic poetry can be found in the following verses of Isaiah and Revelation:
I am the First and I am the Last, besides Me there is no Elohim. (Isa 44:6)
Favor to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is coming, (Rev 1:4)
I am the ‘Aleph’ and the ‘Tav’, Beginning and End,” says Iahvah who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. (Rev 1:8)
יָהָּוָהּ אַשֶׁר הַיָה וְהוֶֹה וְיָבוֹא
Iahvah ah-sher ha-yah v’ho-veh v’ya-vo
Iahvah who exists, and existed, and shall come
It is Iahvah who speaks of Himself through the Messiah to Yochanan the Apostle (see Rev 1:1). We cannot find a better Hebrew word play than this example.
The blessing of Iahvah at Numbers 6:24-26 is especially beautiful with the Name Iahvah.
יְבָרֶכְךָ יָהָּוָהּ , וְיִשְׁמְרֶךָ
yevahREHkheKHA Iahvah vayeesh mehRHEkha
May Iahvah bless you and keep you
יָאֵר יָהָּוָהּ פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וִיחֻנֶּךָּ
yaerr Iahvah pahNAV ehLEkha, vee-khoo-NEKA
May Iahvah make His face shine unto you, and be gracious to you
יִשָּׂא יָהָּוָהּ פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם
Yeesa Iahvah pahNAV ehLEkha, vayyaSEM layKHA shalom
May Iahvah lift up His face unto you, and give you peace
Iah is the poetic form of the Divine Name.
The only question. Does the diacritic on the Alpha in “ancient” Greek produce the /ee/ sound. It has to, to unify the Hebrew and Christian Greek Scriptures.
אִהיָה Ihyah (ee-ah)
Ihyah is pronounced ee-ah, the /h/ is silent.
Exodus 3:14 The /y/ is a slight palatal approximant as in the word “eye”.
In the Beth Mardutha The Syriac Institute word search for Aramaic words, ya is translated “ia” (ee-ah).
Listen to this entry on Wikipedia if you don’t believe it.
The abbreviated form Jah (/dʒɑː/) or Yah (/jɑː/ (listen); יהּ, Yah) appears in the Psalms and Isaiah. It is a common element in Hebrew theophoric names such as Elijah and also appears in the forms yahu (“Jeremiah“), yeho (“Joshua“), and yo (“John“, ultimately from the biblical “Yohanan” and Jonathan, “God gives”. It also appears 24 times in the Psalms as a part of Hallelujah (“Praise Jah”).
Ihyah asher Ihyah
The ultimate riddle, the ultimate Hebrew pun
Exodus 3:14 And God said unto Moses, Ihyah asher Ihyah and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, Ihyah hath sent me unto you.
Meaning of Ihyah asher Ihyah. “I am Ihyah who is called Ihyah”. In other words, “I am Ihyah and they are calling me Ea”. Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, Ihyah hath sent me unto you.
And here is the associated one.
No one knows this but me. And this is the truth about Satan’s plan and how He tried to take over the world. It would be Ea and Eshu as one.
But our Father explained all things to me over time. Ehyeh would be Y’shu believe it or not. with the explanation of Exodus 3:14 being “I am the one who exists”. Using havah (to exist) and match it with with the words, Before Abraham’s birth “I existed”.
