The oldest Iahvah inscription
The Soleb Inscription
At the end of the 15th century B.C., the Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep III built a temple to honor the god Amun-Ra at Soleb in Nubia (modern-day northern Sudan). Within the temple area are a series of columns on which Amenhotep III listed the territories he claimed to have conquered. Each territory is listed by a relief of a prisoner with their hands tied behind their backs over an oval “name ring” identifying the land of the particular foe. The most interesting from a biblical perspective is a column drum that lists enemies from the “the land of the Shaswuh (nomads) of Iahvah”. Given the other name rings nearby, the context would place this land in the Canaanite region. In addition, the prisoner is clearly portrayed as Semitic, rather than African-looking, as other prisoners in the list are portrayed.1 Two conclusions are almost universally accepted: this inscription clearly references Iahvah in Egyptian hieroglyphics (the oldest such reference outside of the Bible), and that around 1400 B.C. Amenhoteph III knew about the god Iahvah. Moreover, it would indicate an area in Canaan in the 15th century B.C. inhabited by nomadic or semi-nomadic people who worship the god Iahvah.
This inscription is also evidence that points to an early date for the exodus. According to a literal reading of 1 Kings 6:1, Solomon began building the temple in the 480th year after the people of Israel came out of the land of Egypt, placing the exodus around 1446 B.C. Moreover, when Moses first went to Pharaoh to deliver God’s message to let His people go, Pharaoh responded by saying, “Who is Iahvah, that I should obey his voice and let Israel go? I do not know Iahvah, and moreover, I will not let Israel go” (Ex. 5:2). By around 1400 B.C., when the Israelites would have been nearing the end of the conquest of Canaan, the ruling Egyptian Pharaoh does know about Iahvah. Egyptologist, Dr. Charles Aling and historian Dr. Clyde Billington summarize: “If the Pharaoh of the Exodus had never before heard of the God Iahvah, this strongly suggests that the Exodus should be dated no later than ca. 1400 BC because Pharaoh Amenhotep III had clearly heard about Iahvah in ca. 1400 BC.”2

The following is the most accurate knowledge in existence about God’s Name.
Page showing Hieroglyph M17 two reeds – Middle Egypt /j/ pronounced /y/ or /ee/
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⟩.
In other words, when translating to English the letter yodh is a /y/ not a /j/ and pronounced /y/ or /ee/.
Yahwah is pronounced ee-ahv’-ah. Ahv is the pronunciation of the ancient root word meaning “father”.
The V4 lasso is definitive proof that the third letter of the Hebrew Tetragrammaton is a /w/ pronounced as a /v/
The name of David, Hebrew דָּוִד is pronounced Dawvid not Dawid.
In the excavation report and all other publications following this initial reading, the final sign is classed as G43 bird (w), but this was a mistake, and the sign is clearly the G1 Egyptian vulture representing aleph (a).

Note the difference in head shape between the bird and the final character which is Egyptian vulture or aleph. The head of the bird is more rounded while the head shape of the vulture is more angular.

Father in Heaven, Iahvah
We thank you for answering our prayers and confirming Your Name for the world to know. Please bless everyone with this knowledge.
In the Name of Yeshua,
How invoking a god works.
Whoever in your mind is God in Heaven will dominate you and continue to be your master.
Only Iahvah in Heaven is God.
Exodus 23:13 “Be careful to do everything I have said to you. Do not invoke the names of other gods; do not let them be heard on your lips.
If you think in your mind that the name of any false god is in Heaven you will invoke it.
You must understand, Satan leaves you alone if you are worshiping one of his gods and even rewards you for doing so.
