Exodus 6:2,3 God spoke to Moses and said to him, "I am YHVH. I revealed Myself to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as God Almighty (El Shaddai), and did not allow them to know Me by My name YHVH." --The Living Torah: A New Translation Based on Traditional Jewish Sources by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan

YHVH, commonly known as the Tetragrammaton - Greek for "four-letter word", is claimed to be the Hebrew name of God.

These hands are divided into twenty-eight sections, each containing a Hebrew letter. Twenty-eight, in Hebrew numbers, spells the word Koach = strength. At the bottom of the hand, the two letters on each hand combine to form YHWH, the name of God. Shefa Tal, Hanau, 1612.
