What do you think about Nehemia Gordon theory regarding "Yehovah" as God's name pronunciation that never got completely lost?

    If the writers of the Bible were inspired, the Spirit left us in the dark guessing for a reason. Must be the plan then, perhaps because knowing how to pronounce the name is not crucial to knowing God...and perhaps God wanted another name to have preeminence.

    Who cares? Witnesses are right that the name differentiates the Bible god from others and use the pronunciation in whatever language.

    It has been surmised that if we could go back 250 years the accents and pronunciation would be foreign to us. Listen to an ocracoke islander, gullah, scot, aussie. I personally love accents. Recording has homogenized languages.

    I think that Jehovah`s Witnesses should at least try to pronounce a more correct pronunciation for God`s name than just blindly follow on with Catholic tradition using Jehovah.
