The form YHWH refers to “the Breath”. The word hawah äåä (also spelt hawa' äåà) itself means “to breathe; to be (in the sense of existence): - be, become, have”: also “to fall” (Brown's Lexicon describes hawah as meaning "falling out" and by extension "to bring about; come to pass"). The personal pronoun hu' äåà translated as "he, it" in Scripture is related to this word and refers to a living thing or person. The pronoun hu' äåà was applied to God in reference to His uniqueness (Yesha`yahu 43:10, Tehilah 102:27). The word hawah itself is the sound of breathing; hence "to breathe out". This was extended to mean "to fall", similar to how breath falls out of a person's mouth when he exhales. This is the character of the Spirit of God, the Breath of life. He is the “Breath”, the One Who exists. A more literal meaning would be “He who breathes/becomes” in the sense of creating (Bereshiyth 2:7). Thus Yahweh is the Sovereign One over His creation. He not only exists, but is actively involved with His creation. He brings abouth whatever happens in the universe, and He is and will become everything we need Him to be. This name was often combined with verbs in the names of people and places to describe His character and attributes. Examples of this are YHWH-Yireh (YHWH will behold, Bereshiyth 22:14) and Y'hoshua (Joshua, YHWH is salvation). Also, the meaning of “falling” has to do with Yahweh being the Master of all the elements of the universe. He causes the snow to fall (heweh) upon the earth (Iyov 37:6), and He causes rain, lightning and fire to fall from heaven. He is the Master of the universe that He created. Also, the phrase “Yahweh of hosts (Heb. Tz'va’oth)” presents Yahweh as the Ruler of armies, both earthly and heavenly.
