New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
17 No weapon that is fashioned against you shall prosper, and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the ‘Lord’ [ha-YHWH: the- Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym] and their vindication from ‘me’ [ha-yad: the-means, the-direction, etc..], says the ‘Lord’ [ha-YHWH: the-Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym].
Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:
Me: 3027 yad yawd a primitive word; a hand (the open one (indicating power, means, direction, etc.), in distinction from 3709, the closed one); used (as noun, adverb, etc.) in a great variety of applications, both literally and figuratively, both proximate and remote (as follows):–(+ be) able, X about, + armholes, at, axletree, because of, beside, border, X bounty, + broad, (broken-)handed, X by, charge, coast, + consecrate, + creditor, custody, debt, dominion, X enough, + fellowship, force, X from, hand(-staves, -y work), X he, himself, X in, labour, + large, ledge, (left-)handed, means, X mine, ministry, near, X of, X order, ordinance, X our, parts, pain, power, X presumptuously, service, side, sore, state, stay, draw with strength, stroke, + swear, terror, X thee, X by them, X themselves, X thine own, X thou, through, X throwing, + thumb, times, X to, X under, X us, X wait on, (way-)side, where, + wide, X with (him, me, you), work, + yield, X yourselves.
‘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’ [Israel’s ‘Elohiym: the – Magistrates, Great, Mighty – ones, angels, etc..] gives ‘his’ [ha-ga’al’s: the deliver-er’s, the redeemer’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’
