“15 “I am the true vine, and My‘Father’(‘aman – thesource that supports, also YHWH: thename,Word and Works, of the true ‘Elohiym)is the vinedresser.”
Always in YH’shua’s example 🙂
Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:
Father: 539 ‘amanaw-man’ a primitive root;properly, to build up or support; to foster as a parent or nurse; figuratively to render (or be) firm or faithful, to trust or believe, to be permanent or quiet; morally to be true or certain; once (Isa. 30:21; interchangeable 541) to go to the right hand:–hence, assurance, believe, bring up, establish, + fail, be faithful (of long continuance, stedfast, sure, surely, trusty, verified), nurse, (-ing father), (put), trust, turn to the right.
The name “YHWH” is probablyderived 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“,
[THE NAME THAT IDENTIFIES ‘the Word and Works of Israel’s ‘Elohiym’]
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”.
