Jehovah in the Bible

Who was Jehovah in the Bible? "Jehovah" is the proper name of the God of Israel in the Hebrew Bible and one of the seven names of God in Judaism. It was familiarized in the English-speaking world by William Tyndale and other settler English Protestant renditions of scripture such as the Geneva Bible and the King James Version. It is still used in some translations but not included in a lot of English translations, as the names "Lord" or "LORD" are used alternatively.
