Psalm 23:1, Genesis 22:1-19, John 10:1-18

 The Lord is JEHOVAH (I am; the eternal living one).

While Elohim exhibits God displayed in his power as the creator and governor of the physical universe, the name Jehovah designates his nature as he stands in relation to man, as the only almighty, true, personal, holy Being, a spirit and “the father of spirits,” Num 16:22, comp. John 4:24 Who revealed himself to his people, made a covenant with them, and became their lawgiver, and to whom all honor and worship are due.

JEHOVAH-JIREH

(je-ho’-va-ji’-re) (‎yahweh yir°-eh‎, “Yahweh sees”): The name given by Abraham to the place where he had sacrificed a ram provided by God, instead of his son Isaac (Gen 22:14). The meaning plainly is that the Lord sees and provides for the necessities of His servants.
