Jah [E] [H]

(Jehovah ), the abbreviated form of Jehovah, used only in poetry. It occurs frequently in the Hebrew, but with a single exception, ( Psalms 68:4 ) is rendered "Lord" in the Authorized Version. The identity of Jah and Jehovah is strongly marked in two passages of Isaiah-- ( Isaiah 12:2 ; 26:4 ) [JEHOVAH].
