THE MYSTERIOUS NAME.
ONLY THE HIGH I'llIKST COULD Sl'KAK IT.
Once each year, on the Day of
Atonement, while tho Jewish Tem
ple nt Jerusalem remained, the
High Priest was accustomed to pro
nounce upon tlio bowed and nwc
HtrlcK'cn multitude of worshippers
tho blessing which contained tho
mysterious tiainu of God. On no
oilier occasion, and from thu lips of
no other person, could this nnme bu
spoken, and when the sacred city
fell before the Roman armies, and
the temple itself was razed to the
ground, the ceremony. likewise pe
rished and the name was lost.
A peculiar interest in this extra
ordinary name has always been
evinced by scholars and antiqua
rians'. There is something in the
mystery that surrounds it, that ap
peals alike to the strict religionist
and to the investigator whose only
motive is the desire lo exploie the
region of the obscure. What was
this name that could not even be
pronounced without blasphemy, and
wlucli lias, in consequence, passcU
away from the knowledge of man
kind? As is well known, the consonants
of tho name are JI1VII or YIIVH ;
and since the time of Hebraist Gala
tiuus the popular usage has been to
pronounced it Jehovah, following
the example of that scholar. Yet
no one believed this lo be in any
way correct, and the ingenuity of
hundreds of commentators has been
taxed to restore the original vowels.
Tho name itself, however, it was
primarily pronounced, is one of
marvelous antiquity. It is derived
from a verb, but was almost forgot
ten in the time of Moses, and its
origin is absolutely lost in the mists
of an antiquity that makes tho pyra
mids seem insufferably modern, it
was the essentially national namo
given to the Creator by the Jews
the name by which they thought of
Him in the privacy of their own
homes, in the presence of their own
altars too sacred to be spoken,
save once each year and by tho lips
of the consecrated priest of tho Most
High. So hedged about was it with
reverence that the Rabbins do not
even dare to wiite about it, but al
lude to it mysteriously as "The
Name," or "The Name of Four
Letters," in which tho Samaritans
likewise follow them. Yet, although
it seems so wholly Jewish, some of
tho most singular coincidences are
to bo found in the usage of other
languages. In the Chinese some
thousand years before Christ, there
are allusions 10 a -name 01 iiirco
mystical letters HIV,' denoting
that which none can comprehend.
Among the Phcenieians the namo
had equal reverence; the Greek
writers speak of the "great name"
which they imperfectly give as
IEUO or IAO ; and an inscription
in the adytum by the temple of Isis
at the Egyptian Sals recalls the
same dread tctragrammation. It
would scorn almost as though this
were tho title by which primeval
man was divinely taught to worship
As has been said, the name, so
far as can be learned, has never
been pronounced since Titus de
stroyed the Temple of Jerusalem in
A. D. 70. Whether before that
timo it was ever in any way fully
committed to writing is quite un
known. Some of the Ifabbins who
are unable to deny that tho recorded
miracles of Christ were actually
wrought, declare that he accom
plished them by nccidentallygaiuing
possession of a parchment in which
"Tim "Mninn" wns fnlK' written, nnil
..W . ....... ..-. -....J .. ,.,
which thus conferred upon its owner
extraordinary and supernatural
powers. Whether previously writ
ten or not, it must have been so re
corded after Jerusalem fell, for we
learn of individuals who preserved
the true pronounclation for many
centuries. Joscphus, in his "Anti
quities," speaks of tho name, but
says it would bo unlawful for him to
explain it. The Jewish Mishna
speaks of a Jew named Kamzar, who
was aware of the sound of the let
ters. In fact, as late as the year
1GS0 the Orientalist Lcusdcn mot a
Jew at Amsterdam who professed to
bo able to utter them correctly. His
family, ho said, had preserved the
traditional prouoiinciatiou by means
of writing. Lcusdcn offered the
man a largo sum of money if he
would utter the word just once, aud
his offer was accepted ; but shortly
after, and before the payment had
been made, so great a tenor seized
upon him us to seal his lips, nor
could he bo persuaded either by
bribes or entreaties to perform his
Tho secret, therefore, must be re
garded as wholly lost ; nor, perhaps,
would a spirit of reverence desiro it
to be discovered, though even tho
most orthodox Christians regard tho
Jewish feeling about the namo its
nothing better than a superstition.
Whatever one may think, tho myste
ry that surrounds the whole subject
appeals very strongly to tho imagi
nation, as is seen in tho melancholy
end of a woll-known American
scholar who dcvpj,cd his whole lifo to
nu investigation of tlia pamo and
upon whoso mind tho question
wrought so strongly as to produ,co
It may bo of interest to give the
various pronounciations tjiaL dif
ferent scholars have considered tho
most probable. Cappcl would have
it Ynhvoh; Fnrst, Ychovch; Mer
cer, Ychvch ; and Wright, Yahnvch ;
but perhaps the majority of Orient
nlisls incline to Ytthvch. Jn read
ing tho Hebrew Scriptures the Jews
themselves never pronounce the
word at all, but substitute the ordi
nary Adomti or "Lord." Homo
