The Name of God
in Bible Archeology
By Ken Marlin
I. By what name did Abraham call God?
Genesis 11:31; And Terah took Abram his son and Lot the son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter in Law, the wife of Abram his son and the went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees to go to the land of Canaan, and they came as far as Haran and settled there.
Genesis 11:31, places Abram in the Third Dynasty of “Ur of the Chaldeans”. Hence, the origin of the name of God originates in the Kingdom of Sumer.
The original bible, Abraham’s bible, was the; “Sumerian Tablets”.
The first time Abraham’s God’s name appears anywhere in the Middle East is on the “Sumerian Kings List” and the “Sumerian Tablets”;
SKL 1:1 “After the kingship descended from the sky, the kingship was in Eridu. In Eridu, “Alulim became king.”
The first earthly king on the “Sumerian Kings List”, was; “Alulim of Eridu”, the first king of the Kingdom of Sumer.
SKL 1:1, is the first time Abraham’s God’s name is ever used.
A. In “Comparative Mythologies” of the world, most paleo kingdoms practiced “Ancestor Worship”, hence their kings were their gods.
Likewise; with the Sumerian Kings List, their kings were their gods, originating from the “Ancestor Worship” of Alulim;
Alulim = God
Abraham called God; “AaLu-LiM”.
The original Sumerian Paleo Pictograph meaning of; “AaLu-LiM”;
“AaLu” is pictograph as; “Ruler”.
“AaLu-Lim” is pictograph as; “Ruler (of) Leaders*”.
* “Leaders” were tribal leaders, sons of Alulim.
Judaism, Christianity and Islam, all originated from the ancestral worship of “Alulim”.
B. Comparative Transcriptions (Linguistics);
AaLoH (Ruler), Elohim
Elohim and Allah originated from the Ancestor Worship of Alulim.
It’s just that plain and simple.
Abraham was from the Middle East*, and if you lived in the Middle East today; Jews, Christians and Muslims, continue to use the name of God; “Allah”. And agree that Jews, Christians and Muslim worship the same God; “Allah”.
* Middle East: West Asia, Arabian, Semitics
Both Allah and Elohim originates from the root; “AaLu” (Alulim).
“Elohim” is the Post 2nd Temple, Western Modern Hebrew pronunciation, which originated in 200 CE.
Note; In the Paleo or Early historical eras, I intentionally use “AaLu” as; “ruler”, that “AaLu” as the concept of a “king” or a “supernatural god” was not devised until Moses challenged the Egyptians, just prior to the exodus.
C.In their early historical years, the Sumerian were obsessed with Astrology, Reincarnation and the Afterlife.
By the time the Sumerian Tablets were written, the oral accounts of Alulim and Ishtar, and the story of creation had already become “Astrological Myths”.
Likewise, the “serpent” was also constellation taken from “Sumerian Astrology Mythology”
Youtube; “Eridu Ur Uruk Nippur”, “Sumerians” and “Kingdom of Sumer”, as an intro for the Kingdom of Sumer and Sumerian Ziggurat (Pyramids). “Forbidden History of the Sumerians”.
Research; “Sumerian Kings List”, “Sumerian Tablets”, “Sumerian Astrology Tablets”, “Babylonian Astronomy”, Babylonian Astrology”, “Religions of Mesopotamia”, Anu, Enki, Enlil, Alulim, Adapa, “Sumerian Pictograph”, and “Sumerian Cuneiform Script”.
ll. God’s name as “YHVH ALHYM” (Elohim);
From the time Abraham leaves Ur, until Moses* writes the Torah, God’s name and Jewish history was kept orally for 500 years while in slavery in Egypt.
* Research “Moses Bacchus”
In the later days of Moses life, he writes Israel’s oral history into the “Phoenician script” creating; Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, (until 2487 AM*/ 1437 BCE Moses dies).
* 500, 2487 AM, 1437 BCE, these dates are based on Biblical dating.
Phoenician script = Early Hebrew
As the Early Sumerians, the Early Phoenicians were also obsessed with Astrology.
The original meaning of ALHYM “Elohim”, in the Early Phoenician/ Early Hebrew;
Reading right to left;
A, Alef, symbolizes; Ox*; Sumerian Astrology (as Taurus).
L, Lamid, symbolizes; Staff; “Leads”.
H, Heh, symbolizes; Man.
Y, Yod, symbolizes; “Sky** (stars/ constellations)”.
M, Mem, as suffix symbolizes “multitudes”, plural of the Yod, as; stars/ constellations.
“ALH-YM” symbolizes; “Ox* – Staff – Man – Sky – Multitudes.”
“AaLoH-YiM” (Elohim) paraphrases as; “Ruler, Leads, Man, (to) Stars** (Astrological Constellations).
* “Ox” is a Chaldean Astrology sign, as the Greek Zodiac“Taurus”, symbolizing the Spring planting season and First of the New Year.
** “Sky/ Stars”, Phoenician meaning from; “Astrological Constellations”.
A. There is no such thing as “Paleo Hebrew”, what is called Paleo Hebrew is actually; Early Phoenician, which became Early Hebrew. Archaeologically, the Phoenician script predated Abraham by 1000 years.
The Paleo Phoenician; “yod” clearly symbolizes a human. But, most dictionaries and encyclopedias only gives the Post Temple “modern sound”; as with the “yod” sounding “hand”.
Furthermore; the Paleo Phoenician “mem” as a suffix symbolizes “men” (multitudes or nations).
As with the name of Abra- “ham”; “Ab-ra” means “first father”, and the “heh” means “man”. With the suffix “mem”, the “heh” clearly means; “men” (nations).
With new archaeological discoveries made daily, it has become easier to make better translations of the Early Phoenician and Early Hebrew scripts. Yet it is difficult to re-educate the old schoolers, hence most of what you read on the internet is still, Post Temple; “old school”.
B. Comparing “Alulim” to “Elohim”;
Sumerian; “AaLu-Lim” is pictograph as; “Ruler (of) Leaders”.
Phoenician; “AaLoH-YiM” (Elohim); “symbolized as; “Ruler, Leads, Man, (to) Skies*”
* “Skies” are Astrological constellations.
Abraham called God, Sumerian; “AaLu-LiM (Allah)”
Moses called God, Phoenician; AaLoH-YiM (Elohim).
C. Sumerian Astrology (Zodiac);
In the cloudless, low humidity, of the desert, the stars appear large and bright. It is believed, the Sumerians/ Chaldeans founded the Astrology system.
D. Monotheistic Comparative Mythology;
Comparatively, all kingdoms, and all religions of the world, originated from a single “monotheistic ruler”, with a King of kings, whose sons were minor kings of cities or provinces.
Likewise, with the Kingdom of Sumer, and the Sumerian religion; Alulim was the monotheistic “Ruler Leads” (King of kings), who reigned over his sons.
Hence, Judaism preserved it’s Sumerians monotheistic kingship/ monotheistic Alulim/ Allah/ God.
E. Monotheistic Compound Names;
Abraham = “First Father of Nations” is a compound name;
Ab - ra = “First Father”, is singular
ham = “Men” (Leaders /Nations), is plural
Alulim = “Ruler of Leaders” is a compound name;
Alu = “Ruler”, is singular
lim = “Men” (Leaders/ Nations), is plural
“AaLoH-YiM” (Elohim) is a “compound name”;
“AaLoH” = Ruler Leads Man”, is singular.
“YiM” Skies (Stars/ Constellations), is plural.
lll. The name of God as; “YHVH”;
“YHVH” is Abraham’s God’s “Specific name/ title”, further describing ALHYM (Elohim).
Genesis 2:4, is the first time “YHVH” (PH) is used in the Torah. Henceforth, Moses called God; “YHVH ALHYM” (PH), specific as “The God of Abraham”, singular.
The Phoenician/ Early Hebrew symbolic meaning for “YHVH”;
Reading right to left;
“Y” Yod, symbolizes; “ Sky (sun/ star)”.
“H” Heh, symbolizes; “Man”.
“V” Vah, symbolizes; “Earth.”
“H” Heh, symbolizes; “Man”.
YHVH symbolizes; “Sky, Man, Earth, Man”.
“YHVH” Paraphrases as; “Sky Man (to) Earth Man”.
In Sumerian Mythology (Sumerian Tablets), Alulim came “from the sky, to the earth”.
B. When “YHVH” is used as a title/ name of a priest in astrology;
“YHVH” Paraphrases as; “Sky Watcher* (of) Earth Man”.
“Yah”, Sky Man simply means; Sky Watcher”. “Yah” is simply the “Priest”, who watches the sky.
Here again, do not over think God’s names and the names of the Priests, which originated from the Sumerian and Phoenician; Paleo (prehistory) age.
Summary of God’s specific name;
“YHVH”; ““Sky Man (to) Earth Man”.
“ALHYM”; (AaLaH-YiM) “Ruler Leads, Man, (to) Skies (Sumerian Astrology).
Furthermore, when men used “El”, “Yah”, or “ah” in their names, it just simply meant they were skywatchers/ priests who interpreted the movement of the sun, moon and stars (constellations).
In the Early Historical Era, most Comparative Religions of the world, practiced similar forms of Astrology. If God’s name originated from Sumerian Astrology and Phoenician Astrology, why did the Torah forbid the practice of Astrology? I’ll tell you;
Moses felt threatened that the Hebrews would go back to the gods of the Sumerians. Hence, Moses attempted to break away from Sumeria and Astrology, to create a new united nation.
Sumerians = Samaritans
IV. Bible Code of AHYH; “AHYH”;
AHYH is the specific name of God as; “Most High” title/ name”. “AHYH” is first used in Exodus 3:14.
A. The Phoenician/ Early Hebrew symbolic meaning for AHYH (PH);
A Alef, symbolizes; Ox*, Sumerian Astrology (as Taurus)
H Heh, symbolizes; Man
Y Yod, symbolizes; Sky
H Heh, symbolizes; Man
AHYH symbolizes; Ox, Man, Sky, Man.
Paraphrases; “Ruler (of) Sky Watcher*”.
* “Sky Watcher” is the “Priest” who watched the sky for the seasons, for planting and harvesting.
B. Comparing YHVH to AHYH;
YHVH = Paraphrases as; “Sky Watcher (of) Earth Man”.
AHYH = Paraphrases as; “Ruler (of) Sky Watcher.”
YHVH = Priest of Man
AHYH = King of Priest
V. Bible Code of “AHYH-Asher-AHYH:
Exodus 3:14; Moses said to God, “When I come to the Israelites and say to them; ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you’ and they ask me, ‘What is His name? what shall I say to them?” And God said to Moses, “AHYH-Asher-AHYH.” He continued, “Thus shall you say to the Israelites, “AHYH sent me to you.” 15 And God said further to Moses, ‘Thus shall you speak to the Israelites; The Lord, the God of your Fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you;
This shall be my name forever, This is my remembrance for all eternity.”
“AHYH-Asher-AHYH (PH),” “Asher” means; “Anoints (Blesses).”
B. The meaning of AHYH Asher AHYH is;
“King (of) Priest, anoints (blesses), King (of) Priest”
That, God anoints/ blesses Himself, there is no one higher, God is “The Most High”.
On the other hand; God as the; “Most High; King of Priest”, who anoints men as earthly; “king of priests”.
Vl. The history of God’s name as “YHVH ALHYM”;
A. Sumerian Mythological /Prehistoric Age;
250,000 BCE (Mythological), Alulim of Eridu.
5000 BCE*, Jushur, First Dynasty of Kish is the “Contemporary Age of; Biblical Creation, Adam and Eve, and the Great Flood” (Jushur lived 1200 years, Adam lived 930 years). In Sumerian Mythology, “kings and kingdoms descended from the sky/ constellations”.
* “5,000 BCE” is based on the “Sumerian Kings List”. Some scholars early date; 3100 BCE.
3761 BCE Adam and Eve
2600 BCE, First Dynasty of Ur to Third Dynasty of Ur.
1813 BCE Abraham born
God’s name and the creation story, was passed orally from Sumerian, to oral Phoenician, to oral Egyptian, then finally translated into the Phoenician written script.
That, God’s name and Jewish history was orally kept for 500 years, thru 15 generations while slavery in Egypt.
Moses was born and raised in Egypt for forty years (by all accounts Moses was an Egyptian), fled to Midian for another forty years (influenced by his father in law, the Druze* Priest of Midian, Jethro).
After the exodus, while in the desert, Moses writes the oral accounts of Creation, as he and the priests recalled, into the Early Phoenician script, know to the Jews as the “Torah” (first five books of the Old Testament).
B. 1300 BCE, begins the “Jewish Historical Age”, or Mosaic Period; the Ten Commandments are given, and The Torah is written in the Early Phoenician script (aka; Semitic Hebrew Biblical script). The Post Egyptian meaning of the name of; “YHVH” became;
1. The Modern Phonetic Comparative meaning of YaH, the "Y" Yod is; "Living."
And the "H" Heh is "breath."
The literal phonetic comparative meaning of "Y-aH is "Living Breath
(Being or Essence of God)."
The root of "YaH" is from "air or wind, the breath, essence or spirit
of God, as in Gen 2:7, and 3:22, where the meaning of "Cha-YaH" is;
"Living Being" or "Living Breath."
The Modern Phonetic comparative meaning of "YaH" is; "Living Breath
In the V "Vav" is an conjunction "and." And the "aH" means; "breath (feminine),"
"aH" is in the feminine form of "being, or the breath, essence, or
spirit of God. V-aH is woman or the breath of life that is given from
childbirth. The root of "aH" is from "air or wind as in Gen 2:7, 3:22;
"chayah." As in the Jewish female's name of Havah/ Chavah (Eve) in
which "Ha-Vah means "the breath of life."
* "Vah" as "HaVah" (Eve) Gen 3:20 And the man named his wife HaVah
(Eve) because she was the mother of all living. The root of Yah is air
or wind, so Vah (Eve) is taken from the rib of man, from the breath of
The phonetic comparative meaning of "Vah" is; "and Breath (feminine)."
In the phonetic comparative, YHVH means; "Living Breath (m) and Breath (f).
C. Later Transcriptions (Linguistics);
10th to 6th century BCE, Archaic Biblical Hebrew/ aka; Paleo Hebrew
8th to 6th century BCE, Standard Biblical Hebrew
5th to 3rd century BCE to Late Biblical Hebrew, by Ezra and Nehemiah,
D. 350 BCE, the Greek Septuagint LXX, the Greek translation of the Tanakh (OT Bible), used; “Kyrios Theos” (Lord God) to describe YHVH ALHYM.
Kyrios = Ruler (tribal ruler)
Theos = Divine (Supernatural)
E. 3rd century BCE to 1st century CE, to Dead Sea Scroll Hebrew,
F. 2nd century CE to Masoretic Text Hebrew/ Rabbinic Hebrew,
The post second Temple mischievous era, Jews who had no ties to the Jewish High Priests used; “HaShim (The Name) or Adonai (Lord/ Master)” in place of YHVH.
G. to Modern Hebrew used today.
H. 1500 CE, most English translators translates YHVH as; “Lord.” And AaLa as; “god or God”.
I. 1600 CE, European Christian scribes incorrectly used; Yehovah, Yehowah, Yahowah or Jehovah.
J. Modern Judaism, as a Religion (no longer a Race);
From 70 CE to 200 CE, Rome had executed Judaism into extinction, killing all the Jewish Sadducees priests, Pharisees priests, and most all the religious Jews.
Then, because of the lack of Jewish women, the few remaining Jews intermarried with pagan women, and their children assimilated into pagan races.
Yet, two hundred years later, we are lead to believe that Hillel’s descendants orally passed the “Oral Torah” from generation to generation, while fleeing persecution from the Romans.
That, in the year 200 CE (AD), Hillel and his descendants began writing the “Oral Torah” the Talmud.
But Hillel was a Benjamite, with no ties to the priesthood or to the kingship of Israel. Somehow the Talmud became the foundation of the modern Judaism practiced today?
Furthermore, by the dark ages, by 1600’s CE, Judaism was lost/ non existence. But with the arise of the Protestant Christian movement, there was also pseudo Jewish movements, of which were made up of by converts.
Today, the vast majority of those who call themselves Jews have “no genetic connection to Judaism". That, the main Jewish Denominations are not of Jewish lineage.
Vll. God’s pseudo name as; “The I Am”;
We discussed God’s name in;
Paleo Sumerian Pictographic,
Early Sumerian Cuneiform,
Paleo Phoenician Pictographic,
to Early Hebrew,
Now were are going to discuss: “Modern Hebrew Transliteration” (200 CE/ AD) of God’s name as the “I Am”;
The modern pseudo name of God, as “The I AM”;
Rather than to say the name of God, Modern Hebrews substitute; “YHVH, ALHYM and AHYH”, with “I am”, (taken from Gen 5 The First Commandment; “I Am’ YHVH ALHYM.”)
Hence, modern Jews “transliterates” God names as the; “I Am”, or “I Am that I Am”. That the name of God has no meaning to modern Jews.
B. The gods of Gen 1-6;
“elohim” was the common Phoenician name for a god or gods. The AaLoH- YiM (elohim) as gods, were simply the Phoenician kings or priests (prophets) who watched the sky, for the seasons, to plant and harvest.
To differentiate elohim (god) from Abraham’s God, was the addition of the title “YHVH” to elohim, creating; “YHVH Elohim”, specifically as the name of “The God of Abraham”.
C. There is no such picture graphic or script as; “Paleo Hebrew”. What is called Paleo Hebrew is actually “Early Phoenician”.
The name of god/ gods, both “YHVH” and “Elohim”, preceded Moses by 1000 years, in ancient Phoenician temples.
The origin of God’s name is from Sumerian Mythology (Astrology). That, Judaism, Christianity and Islam originated from Sumerian myths.
God is a myth.
A. This work is ongoing and is improving, and is not to be considered as Halakha, binding or law. It was revised in USA, in 2016, and addressed issues for that era.
The is only meant to be a guide; “Don’t rely on others to interpret Torah, do the research for yourself”.
Then, “think outside of the box/ Bible”, using; “Comparative Religions”, Archeology, Astrology and Science.
