Book Of Mormon -ihah As Elephanitine Jew Yhh


Olavarria

Recommended Posts

The â??ihah element in many Book of Mormon names is the Nephite version of the theophoric element,YHW. From the Jewish Community at Elephantine we get YHWH wrtten as YHH(Park Taylor). â??Hugh Nibley saw the ending -ihah, found in this and several other Book of Mormon names, as the theophoric element rendered -iah in the KJV, an element found in many Hebrew names from the time of Lehiâ? (Tvedtnes, Gee and Roper). â??The fact that Mathoni is hypocoristic for Mathonihah reinforces the idea that the element -ihah is the Nephite form of the divine name. This being the case, Mathonihah would correspond to KJV Mattaniah (Hebrew Mtnyhw), the birth-name of Zedekiahâ? ( Tvedtnes, Gee and Roper).

The Book of Mormon Ammonihah has been attested to be a Hebrew name (Tvedtnes, Gee and Roper). Ammonihah is attested on two Hebrew seals, one known to date to the seventh century b.c., in the forms 'mnyhw and 'mnwyhw (Tvedtnes, Gee and Roper).

This is one of the evidences I see as supporting my thesis that Lehi descended from Israelites who had lived in Egypt for several generations.
