JEHOVAH:  LORD in our English Bibles. 

JEHOVAH-JIREH:  “The Lord will Provide.” 

JEHOVAH-ROPHE:  “The Lord Who Heals” – Implies spiritual, emotional as well as physical healing.  God heals body, soul and spirit; all levels of man’s being.

JEHOVAH-NISSI:  “The Lord Our Banner”  – God on the battlefield, from word which means “to glisten,” “to lift up.”

JEHOVAH-M’KADDESH:  “The Lord Who sanctifies”  – To make whole, set apart for holiness.” 

JEHOVAH-SHALOM:  “The Lord Our Peace” – Means “whole,” “finished,” “fulfilled,” “perfected.” Shalom means that kind of peace that results from being a whole person in right relationship to God and to one’s fellow man.
