Jehovah Jireh & Other Praise Names For God In Christian Songs

Edited by Azizi Powell


From written by Steve Hall; 1999)

The first name we find of God in the Bible is Elohim. (Genesis 1:1). It is used over 2700 times in the Bible. The prefix "El" signifies "one who is great, mighty, dreadful." It is also a plural word that suggests the fact that God is a Holy Trinity--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. …

El Shaddai
..El Shaddai is another name for God. It is used 48 times in Scripture. It is always translated "The Almighty." The first time this name is used is in Genesis 17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect...

A 3rd name that God uses for Himself is Adonai. It occurs about 300 times in the O.T. This name suggests Lordship and ownership. When God calls Himself by this name, Adonai, He is saying, "I am the One who owns and rules over everthing that exists."...

...The most frequently used name for God is YAHWEH or Jehovah.

It occurs more than 6800 times in the Bible…
The Word literally means "I Am." It comes from the verb which means "to be" or "to exist."

...Jehovah Jireh is found in Genesis 22:14. It literally means "The Lord Provides."...

We used to sing a little song that said, "Jehovah Jireh, my Provider, His grace is sufficient for me. My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in Glory. He gives His angels charge over me, Jehovah Jireh cares for me."

Jehovah Nissi.
...This is found in Exodus 17:15. It literally means "God, my Banner or God my Standard of Victory" In Exodus 17:15 Moses named an Altar he built after this name of God. ("And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah nissi")Ezek 48:35. It is the last verse in the book of Ezekiel.

Jehovah Shammah
The last part of the vision of Ezekiel was of a new city, with a new temple. It was to be glorious. And the last words of this verse tell us the name of the city. In Hebrew is ... a compound name of God--Jehovah-Shammah. He is "The Eternal God who is There."

Here are videos & lyrics of two praise & worship songs whose lyrics include some of the praise & worship names that are listed above:
