Hebrew to English translations [Non-PRO]
Hebrew term or phrase: Jah
The name Jah.
Rory Rezzelle
JAH = Jehovah (the LORD)
Explanation:
In some versions of the Bible the word JAH is used to mean Jehovah. I've been told that Jehovah itself isn't even a Hebrew term but the vowels of Elohim put into the consonants of Yahweh, but that's an entirely different subject.
In other Bible translations you'll find the LORD instead.

Hope that answers your question.
