Beautiful Names in Hebrew

Throughout recorded history, Beautiful Names of God have been revealed to the prophets of various cultures world-wide.

For example, the Hebrew prophets, as recorded in the books of the Old Testament and the Torah, used a wide variety of Beautiful Names to express the divine attributes.

The following  are a few examples of the numerous Hebrew Beautiful Names given in the books of the Old Testament, along with a common English translation (although Jewish readers would typically read Adonai rather than the word Jehovah, which was apparently "created" by misguided Christian translators to make the unpronounceable sacred name YHWH easy to pronounce):
