In the Hebrew scriptures the Jewish name of God is considered sacred and, out of deep respect for the name, religious Jews do not say the name of God and do not erase it if it is written. (See Exodus 20:7) The tetragrammaton (Hebrew: יהוה, English: YHVH) is the name for the group of four Hebrew letters which represent the name of God. The Tetragrammaton occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text in the Biblia Hebraica and the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia. Neither vowels nor vowel points were used in ancient Hebrew writings.
Some claim the pronunciation of YHWH has been lost, while other authorities say it has not and that it is pronounced Yahweh

From my understanding it is the Hebrew word for God. Found in the old testament. You are not going to find it in any English bible's because it has been translated..
I dont see it and i did a google search on bible verses. What chapter is it shown in?
Jeremiah 33:2 "YHVH Who made the earth, Who formed it and set it firm - YHVH is His Name - says this: 'Call to Me and I will answer you ...'"
Isaiah 12:4 "Give thanks to YHVH - call His Name aloud. Proclaim His deeds to the nations, declare His Name sublime. Sing of YHVH, for He has done marvelous things - let it be known to the whole world!".
Jesus is the son. So we dont know the real name of God? Is it hidden?
Gods name is YHWH ("I am that I am."), the Hebrew Tetragrammaton representing the name of God. Most commonly viewed as Yahweh.
