38. That the Lord is called "Jehovah," is evident from these passages:
Thus saith Jehovah thy Creator, O Jacob, and thy Former, O Israel, Fear not, for I have redeemed thee. I am Jehovah thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Savior (Isa. 43:1, 3).
I am Jehovah your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King (verse 15).
The Holy One of Israel, and his Former, O God of Israel, the Savior (Isa. 45:11, 15).
That all flesh may know that I Jehovah am thy Savior and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob (Isa. 49:26).
That thou mayest know that I Jehovah am thy Savior and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob (Isa. 60:16).
Jehovah thy Former from the womb (Isa. 49:5).
Jehovah my Rock, and my Redeemer (Ps. 19:14).
Thus saith Jehovah thy Maker and Former from the womb. Thus saith Jehovah the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, Jehovah of Armies (Isa. 44:2, 6).
As for our Redeemer, Jehovah of Armies is His name, the Holy One of Israel (Isa. 47:4).
With the mercy of eternity will I have mercy on thee, saith Jehovah thy Redeemer (Isa. 54:8).

Thus saith Jehovah your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel (Isa. 43:14; 48:17).

I am Jehovah, and besides Me there is no Savior (Isa. 43:11).
Am not I Jehovah, and there is none besides Me, and there is no Savior besides Me. Look unto Me and be ye saved all the ends of the earth (Isa. 45:21, 22).

Jehovah of Armies is His name, and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel, the God of the whole earth shall He be called (Isa. 54:5).
In these passages Jehovah is called the "Redeemer and Savior;" and as the Lord alone is the Redeemer and Savior, it is He who is meant by "Jehovah." That the Lord is Jehovah, that is, that Jehovah is the Lord, is evident also from the following passages:
There shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a shoot out of his roots shall bear fruit, and the Spirit of Jehovah shall rest upon Him (Isa. 11:1, 2).
It shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God we have waited for Him, and He will save us; this is Jehovah, we have waited for Him; we will rejoice and be glad in His salvation (Isa. 25:9).
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, prepare ye the way of Jehovah, make plain in the solitude a pathway for our God. For the glory of Jehovah shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it. Behold the Lord Jehovih shall come in strength, and His arm shall rule for Him (Isa. 40:3, 5, 10).
I Jehovah will give thee for a covenant to the people, for a light of the nations. I am Jehovah, that is My name, and My glory will I not give to another (Isa. 42:6, 8).
Behold the days come that I will raise unto David a righteous offshoot, who shall reign a King, and shall prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth; and this is His name whereby He shall be called, Jehovah our righteousness (Jer. 23:5-6; 33:15-16).
Thou Bethlehem Ephratah, out of thee shall He go forth unto Me that shall be a Ruler in Israel; He shall stand and feed [His flock] in the strength of Jehovah (Micah 5:2, 4).
Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called God, Hero, the Father of eternity, upon the throne of David to establish and to found it in judgment and in justice, from henceforth and even to eternity (Isa. 9:6-7).
Jehovah shall go forth and fight against the nations; and His feet shall stand upon the Mount of Olives before the faces of Jerusalem (Zech. 14:3-4).
Lift up your heads, O ye gates and be ye lifted up, ye doors of the world, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? Jehovah strong and a Hero, Jehovah a Hero of war (Ps. 24:7-10).
In that day shall Jehovah of Armies be for a crown of ornament, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of His people (Isa. 28:5).
I will send you Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great day of Jehovah (Mal. 4:5).
Not to mention other passages where mention is made of the great and near day of Jehovah as Ezek. 30:3; Joel 2:11; Amos 5:18, 20; Zeph. 1:14-15, 18.
