New King James Version (NKJV)
“4 I[a] must work the works of ‘Him’ (ha-‘Iysh: the-Husbandman, the-Steward, etc..) who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
By sharing who’s works he follows – our Messiah here is telling us to know who’s works we follow, that ‘YHWH’ (the Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s Elohiym) may bless us and our homes!!!!
Paraphrasing YH’shua (YH is salvation)? ‘Seek that you may find.’ 🙂
Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:
He /Him: 376 ‘iysh eesh contracted for 582 (or perhaps rather from an unused root meaning to be extant); a man as an individual or a male person; often used as an adjunct to a more definite term (and in such cases frequently not expressed in translation):–also, another, any (man), a certain, + champion, consent, each, every (one), fellow, (foot-, husband-)man, (good-, great, mighty) man, he, high (degree), him (that is), husband, man(-kind), + none, one, people, person, + steward, what (man) soever, whoso(-ever), worthy. Compare 802.

The name “YHWH” is probably derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”, with a third person masculine y- prefix, equivalent to English “he”. It is connected to the passage in Exodus 3:14 in which ‘God’ (Elohiym: [the] Magistrates, Great, Mighty – ones, etc..) gives ‘his’ (‘iysh: the steward’s, etc..) name as אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh [YHWH]), where the relative pronoun asher (“that”, “who”, “which”, and “where”) is between two instances of the first person singular imperfect of the verb hayah (“to be”). Ehyeh is often, but not always, translated as “I will be”, while the relative pronoun can have several meanings: “I will be that/who/which/where I will be”. It is maybe translated most basically as “I Am that/who/which/where I Am“,

or “I shall be what I shall be”, “I shall be what I am” or יהוה [YHWH] with the vocalisation “Yahweh” could theoretically be a hif’il (causative) verb inflection of root HWH, with a meaning something like “he who causes to exist” (the creator deity) or “who gives life” (the root idea of the word being “to breathe”, and hence, “to live”). As a qal (basic stem) verb inflection, it could mean “he who is, who exists”.
