    This post doesn't require a response. It is for information purposes only.
    I notice some have used this term in their threads and I want to add to your information about this Biblical term.

    HALLELUJAH
    (Hal·le·luʹjah).
    A transliteration of the Hebrew expression ha·lelu-Yahʹ, appearing first at Psalm 104:35. It is nearly always translated “praise Jah, you people.” The expression occurs 24 times in the Hebrew Scriptures and introduces and/or concludes the Psalms in which it is found. (See Ps 112:1; 115:18; 146:1, 10; 147:1, 20; 148:1, 14; 149:1, 9; 150:1, 6.). A Greek form of it appears four times at Revelation 19:1-6, where the reference is to the joy experienced over the destruction of Babylon the Great and that associated with Jehovah’s beginning to rule as King.—See JAH.

    JAH
    A poetic shortened form of Jehovah, the name of the Most High God. (Ex 15:1, 2) This abbreviated form is represented by the first half of the Hebrew Tetragrammaton יהוה (YHWH), that is, the letters yohdh (י) and heʼ (ה), the tenth and fifth letters of the Hebrew alphabet respectively.
    Jah occurs 50 times in the Hebrew Scriptures, 26 times alone, and 24 times in the expression “Hallelujah,” which is, literally, a command to a number of people to “praise Jah.” However, the presence of “Jah” in the original is completely ignored by certain popular versions. (Dy, Mo, RS) The King James Version and An American Translation have it only once, as “Jah” and “Yah” respectively. (Ps 68:4) In the English Revised Version it appears twice in the body of the text (Ps 68:4; 89:8), and in the American Standard Version the full form, Jehovah, is substituted throughout, but these latter two translations in practically every occurrence of the contracted form call it to our attention in footnotes. The New World Translation preserves for the reader all 50 occurrences of Jah, or Yah; and Rotherham’s Emphasised Bible, 49 of them.
    In the Christian Greek Scriptures “Jah” appears four times in the expression Hallelujah. (Re 19:1, 3, 4, 6) Most Bibles simply carry this Greek expression over into English untranslated, but G. W. Wade renders it, “Praise ye Jehovah,” and the New World Translation reads, “Praise Jah, you people!”
    The single syllable Jah is usually linked with the more moving emotions of praise and song, prayer and entreaty, and is generally found where the subject theme dwells upon a rejoicing over victory and deliverance, or where there is an acknowledgment of God’s mighty hand and power.

    YAHSHUA

    "Yahshua" means "Yah(weh) saves". Commonly understood by the Hebrew people as being the true name of the man commonly called "Jesus Christ".

    JOHN 5:43, The Messiah said, "I have come in My Father's name, but, you did not recieve Me. Another will come in his own name, and him you will recieve."

    "Yeshua" means "He saves" and was the most popular form of the name which is now commonly translated into English as "Jesus". But, "Yahshua" means "Yah saves", and therefore contains the name of The Father "Yah" (Weh). See Psalm 68:4.

    Compare MATTHEW 1:16 and LUKE 3:23.

    You are correct to a degree.
    Interestingly, the Hebrew form of “Jesus” is “Jehoshuah,” which is an abbreviated form of “Jehovah-yeshua,” meaning “Jehovah is salvation.” So there it is—the name of the Father, the Supreme Being, is JEHOVAH. And how appropriate that Jesus, as Jehovah’s agent for salvation, should thus be named after his Father!

    "Insight on the Scriptures" 1988 is wrong on this one. Jehovah is incorrect.

    The Greek Ἰησοῦς (Iēsous), which occurs 975 times in 935 verses in the Greek concordance of the KJV, in English is Jesus, which means "Jehovah is salvation".

    Thank you all for your honest response.
    (Numbers 16:4, 5) When Moses heard this, he at once fell facedown. 5 Then he said to Korʹah and to all his supporters: “In the morning Jehovah will make known who belongs to him and who is holy and who should approach him, and whomever he may choose will approach him.

    Now let's deal with a paradox, a problem to some readers of the Bible

    In Exodus 6:3 God said to Moses - "I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Allsufficient [ or God Almighty - El Shaddai ] ; but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them."

    Here is the puzzle. Certain passages in Genesis show that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were all familiar with the name Jehovah such as (Gen. 12:4; 26:25; 32:9) . So how can we reconcile these passages with God's word in Exodus 6:3 ?

    Anyone wish to explain ?
    (That is a non-trollish, non-frivolous explanation).
    No comedian "yuk, yuks" needed.

    Did Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob know God as Jehovah or not ?

    Expdus 6:3

    King James Bible
    And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

    Holman Christian Standard Bible
    I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty, but I did not reveal My name Yahweh to them.

    Jubilee Bible 2000
    and I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, as God Almighty, but by my name the LORD (YHWH) I was not known to them.

    Yes, they knew Him by His personal name Jehovah, but through Moses He was going to reveal a "new" aspect of His name. He was going to "become whatever He needed to be" in order to deliver the Israelites from slavery in Egypt.
    *** w14 4/15 p. 5 par. 10 Imitate the Faith of Moses ***
    First, Jehovah assured Moses: “I will prove to be with you.” (Ex. 3:12) Second, Jehovah inspired confidence by explaining one aspect of the meaning of his name: “I Will Become What I Choose to Become.” (Ex. 3:14) Third, he endowed Moses with miraculous power that proved that Moses was indeed sent by God. (Ex. 4:2-5)

    I am that I am does not even make sense in English never mind from the original Hebrew. Another epic fail Jonah Hinds.

    That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth. Pslam 83:18 King James version.

    This is one place the King James translators got it wrong. Most modern versions translate it as LORD. However there are a few like the Holman Christian Standard Bible that translate it correctly as Yahweh:
    May they know that You alone-- whose name is Yahweh-- are the Most High over all the earth.

    Psalm 83:18

    Not bad.

    And if God should choose to become a Man ?
