  Yahweh  \Yah"weh\,  Yahwe  \Yah"we\,  n.  Also  Jahveh  \Jah"veh\, 
  Jahve  \Jah"ve\,  etc 
  A  modern  transliteration  of  the  Hebrew  word  translated 
  {Jehovah}  in  the  Bible;  --  used  by  some  critics  to 
  discriminate  the  tribal  god  of  the  ancient  Hebrews  from  the 
  Christian  Jehovah.  Yahweh  or  {Yahwe}  is  the  spelling  now 
  generally  adopted  by  scholars.
