Romans 14:8

New King James Version (NKJV)

For if we live, we live to ‘the Lord’ [ha-YHWH: the-name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym]; and if we die, we die to ‘the Lord’ [ha-YHWH: the-name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym]. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are ‘the Lord’s ‘ [ha-YHWH’s: the-name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym].”

YHWH (יהוה):

Modern scholars generally agree that YHWH is derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”,[3] an archaic form of which is הוה (h-w-h),[4] with a third person masculine y- prefix, equivalent to English “he”. They connect it to [eg.] Exodus 3:14, [ETC..] where the divinity [‘Elohiym of Israel] who spoke with Moses responds to a question about his name by declaring: אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh asher ehyeh), “I am that I am” or “I will be what I will be”[5](in Biblical Hebrew the form of the verb here is not associated with any particular English tense).[6][7][8]
