        Condensing in one emphatic syllable all that is implied in Jahveh, the true pronunciation of Jehovah (Psalm 68:4); first in Exodus 15:2 (Hebrew). Often in names, as Eli-jah. Only in poetry: Isaiah 12:2, "Jah Jehovah is my strength and my song"; (Isaiah 26:4) "in Jah Jehovah is the Rock of ages." The union of the two names expresses in the highest degree God's unchanging love and power. Hallelu-Jah is "Praise ye Jah." Psalm 89:8, "O Jehovah, God of hosts, who, as Thou, is a strong Jah?" the emphatic concentration of the name "Jehovah." The spirit impressed with a sense of God feels the need of repeating frequently that name in which His being is comprehended (Hengstenberg). 1 Chronicles 4:2. Identified by some with see HAROEH .
