I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever. (Psalm 45:17)

The names of God in the Bible provide great insight into understanding and remembering Who God is.

In the Old Testament, we find compound names that give a descriptive Hebrew word combined with the Hebrew word for God, either Jehovah or El. The words help us to better understand the nature and character of God by describing many of His works that flow from His attributes.
