“11 Dear friends, if ‘God’ [ha-‘Elohiym: the-Magistrates, the-Great, etc..] loved us in this way, we also must ‘love’ [racham: (have) compassion (for), (have) mercy (for), etc..] one another. 12 No one has ever seen ‘God’ [‘Elohiym].[a]
If we ‘love’ [racham: (have) compassion (for)] one another, ‘God’ [‘Elohiym] remains in[b] us and ‘His’ [ha-Ga’al’s: the-Redeemer’s, the-Deliverer’s, etc..] ‘love’ [compassion] is perfected in us.”

“YHWH: “Modern scholars generally agree that YHWH is derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”, an archaic form of which is הוה (h-w-h), 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, YHWH] 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”(in Biblical Hebrew the form of the verb here is not associated with any particular English tense).“
