and the meaning would be “causing being”. “Ongoing cause of being” would probably be the most accurate phrase to translate “Yahweh.”

I am delighted to learn this.  Once again, rebbe, I am grateful for your (and lionello’s!) participation in this forum.

(Opens wordorigins.org. Observes Reb Wlm’s posts. Feels like the guy in the movies who hears the cavalry bugles. Heaves sigh of relief. Relaxes )

(warm thanks, Eliza, for asking re my absence. I will respond off the board. Nothing to do with disagreeing with an etymological point of view)

so I will rejoin my meager light with Lionello’s luminescence and respond to all questions related to the Holy tongue.

Barukh haba - Welcome indeed, Reb Wlm (and thank you for your kind - if a shade hyperbolical - reference to my feeble 25W). As you can see, it is not your erudition alone that posters at this site value - it’s your presence.
