    Names In Scripture

    & Revelation 7, names order and meanings, and other places:


    Names in scripture, represent Character, who the Person actually is, and are purposeful in revealing more about whom is loved and served by the one bearing the name [Exodus 34:5-8; Psalms 46:7,11; Isaiah 7:14, 8:8; Matthew 1:23; Revelation 3:12; etc].

    Let not my lord, I pray thee, regard this man of Belial, even Nabal: for as his name is, so is he; Nabal is his name, and folly is with him: but I thine handmaid saw not the young men of my lord, whom thou didst send. 1 Samuel 25:25

    A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. Proverbs 22:1

    A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth. Ecclesiastes 7:1

    There are only two ways in which our names may be seen,

    [1] In glorification of God, or,
    [2] in glorification of self and thus satan.​

    Thus, do we make our name great, or will God make our name great unto His glory?

    [1] God: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: Genesis 12:2

    [2] self and thus satan: And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. Genesis 11:4

    Names throughout the Scripture have specific meaning, dealing with the Character of the one which it is given to, and speak of the essence of the person, being or place or thing, several examples include:

    And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Genesis 3:20

    Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. Genesis 5:2

    And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed. Genesis 5:29

    And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan. Genesis 10:25

    Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. Genesis 11:9

    And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. Genesis 16:11

    Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. Genesis 17:5

    Thou art the LORD the God, who didst choose Abram, and broughtest him forth out of Ur of the Chaldees, and gavest him the name of Abraham; Nehemiah 9:7

    And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. Genesis 17:15

    Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear? Genesis 17:17

    And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. Genesis 17:19

    And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? Genesis 18:13

    Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh. Genesis 18:15

    And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. Genesis 21:6

    And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me? Genesis 27:36

    And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. Genesis 35:10

    Israel – God prevails or Prevails with God:

    And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. Genesis 32:28

    God's very name reveals His character and glory, which is why it is important for no one to take His name in vain, neither to speak against or act/behave contrary to it [“Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.Exodus 20:7; “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.” Isaiah 43:7; “For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.” Isaiah 48:11]:

    And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. Exodus 6:3

    And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name. Exodus 33:17

    And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. Exodus 33:19

    And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by: Exodus 33:22

    Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. Psalms 29:2

    And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. Exodus 34:5

    And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Exodus 34:6

    Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. Exodus 34:7

    For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Exodus 34:14

    I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Isaiah 42:8

    Jesus Himself, came to make known and to declare the name/character of the Father:

    I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. John 17:6

    And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. John 17:26

    Names help us to identify who/what a thing/Person actually is:

    Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him. Psalms 68:4

    The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name. Exodus 15:3

    And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel. Isaiah 8:8

    Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us. Isaiah 8:10

    Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. Revelation 3:12

    Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2 Timothy 2:19

    Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: Ephesians 1:21

    Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: Philippians 2:9

    I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. Psalms 22:22

    A specific example of this may be seen from the Beginning and might go something like this [though there may be several variations on it]:

    Adam – Red, The Living Soul [through Blood], A Unique Son of God

    And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7

    Eve – The Mother of all Living [Life-Giver]

    And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Genesis 3:20

    Abel – Breath, Briefly, a Keeper of the Sheep [Mourning, Lamenting]

    And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. Genesis 4:2

    Cain – Possession, a Tiller of the Ground [Lance, Spear]

    And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. Genesis 4:1

    Seth – Compensation [setting, in the place of [Abel], appointed]

    And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. Genesis 4:25

    Enos – Man [mortal man]

    And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD. Genesis 4:26

    Cainan - Possession

    And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan: Genesis 5:9

    Mahalaleel – Praise of God

    And Cainan lived seventy years, and begat Mahalaleel: Genesis 5:12

    Jared – Descent [coming down]

    And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared: Genesis 5:15

    Enoch – Dedicated [Who walked with God, and was not, for God took Him]

    And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch: Genesis 5:18

    Methuselah – Man of the Dart [His Death Shall bring]

    And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: Genesis 5:21

    Lamech – Powerful [Strength]

    And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech: Genesis 5:25

    Noah – Rest [Comfort]

    And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed. Genesis 5:29

    Thus:

    God, through His Unique Son [Adam, Red/blood], Gives Life [Eve], being pierced [Cain], and in the place of [Seth] mourning/sorrow [Abel], for Mortal Man [Enos], Obtained [Cainan], the Praise of God [Mahalaleel], for He Descended/Came Down [Jared], Dedicated/Walked With God and was not found, for God took Him [Enoch], and Whose Death Would Bring [Methuselah], Strength/Vital Force [Lamech], and Rest/Comfort [Noah], so declaring His Good Name [Shem].

    We also see this at the Ending of Scripture in Revelation 7 in the names given there, given in the names of the Sons of Israel [Hosea 11:1; Matthew 2:13-15] in the special ordering, and might go something like this:

    Of the tribe of Juda [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad [were] sealed twelve thousand. Revelation 7:5

    Of the tribe of Aser [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses [were] sealed twelve thousand. Revelation 7:6

    Of the tribe of Simeon [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar [were] sealed twelve thousand. Revelation 7:7

    Of the tribe of Zabulon [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin [were] sealed twelve thousand. Revelation 7:8

    13 Tribes; 1 with no inheritance, 1 with double inheritance.

    Revelation 7 Names in Specifically Given Order:

    Judah = "Jew" = "I Will Praise The Lord" [Genesis 29:35]

    And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.​

    Reuben = "Behold A Son" = "He Has Looked On Me" [Genesis 29:32]

    And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the LORD hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.​

    Gad = "Troop" = "Given Good Fortune" [Genesis 30:11]

    And Leah said, A troop cometh: and she called his name Gad. ​

    Asher = "Happy" = "Happy Am I" [Genesis 30:13]

    And Leah said, Happy am I, for the daughters will call me blessed: and she called his name Asher. ​

    Naphtali = "Wrestling" = "My Wrestling" [Genesis 30:8]

    And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali. ​

    Manasseh = "Causing To Forget" = "Is Making Me To Forget" [Genesis 41:51]

    And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, [said he], hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house. ​

    Simeon = "Heard" = "God Hears Me" [Genesis 29:33]

    And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the LORD hath heard that I [was] hated, he hath therefore given me this [son] also: and she called his name Simeon. ​

    Levi ** = "Joined To" = "Is Attached To Me" [Genesis 29:34]

    And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi.​

    Issachar = "There Is Recompense" = "He Has Purchased Me" [Genesis 30:18]

    And Leah said, God hath given me my hire, because I have given my maiden to my husband: and she called his name Issachar. ​

    Zebulun = "Exalted" = "A Dwelling" [Genesis 30:20]

    And Leah said, God hath endued me [with] a good dowry; now will my husband dwell with me, because I have born him six sons: and she called his name Zebulun.​

    Ephraim * = "Double Ash Heap" = "I Shall Be Doubly Fruitful" [Genesis 41:52]

    And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction. ​

    Joseph = "Jehovah Was Added" = "God Will Add To Me" [Genesis 30:24]

    And she called his name Joseph; and said, The LORD shall add to me another son ​

    Benjamin = "Son Of The Right Hand" = "Son Of His Right Hand" [Genesis 35:17,18]

    And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also. And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin. ​

    Dan * = "A Judge" [Genesis 30:6]

    And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my voice, and hath given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan.​

    And therefore, by the special list given in Revelation 7, we see the meaning:

    I Will Praise The LORD [for] He Has Looked On Me [and] Granted Good Fortune. Happy Am I [because] My Wrestling, God Is Making Me To Forget. God Hears Me [and] Is Attached To Me. He has Purchased Me A Dwelling [and] Will Add To Me The Son Of His Right Hand.

    Or

    Now I Will Praise The LORD [for] Surely The LORD Hath Looked Upon My Affliction [and] Granted Good Fortune [therefore] Happy Am I [even though] With Great Wrestlings Have I Wrestled [but] God Is Making Me To Forget All My Toil [for] the LORD Hath Heard Me [being] Joined Unto Me [and] He Has Purchased Me [wanting] To Dwell With Me [and] The LORD Shall Add To Me [also] The Son Of His Right Hand.

    Now, coming to the names of these children of Israel of the tribe of Judah, in the book of Daniel, namely: Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, Azariah, we see:

    Israel – God prevails or Prevails with God: [Genesis 32:28]
    Judah – “I will praise the Lord” [Genesis 29:35]
    Daniel – “God is my judge”
    Hananiah – “Jehovah has favored [or is gracious]”
    Mishael – “like unto God”
    Azariah – “whom Jehovah has helped”​

    Thus we see that these are the story of Redemption through Jesus:

    Those who “prevail with God” will say “I will praise the LORD” forever, for the true Merciful and Just “God is my Judge” in the day of judgment, and He is “Jehovah, [whom] has favored or is gracious [unto]” us, desiring that we should be made “like unto God”, remade in His image, according to His will, for we are they “whom Jehovah has helped” that we might become overcomers in Him.​

    What we might also notice, is that these were the names glorifying God.

    Yet, most more commonly know these four children by their Babylonian names given later, being: Belteshazzar, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego.

    Pity, that so many, so readily remember those names rather than their given names which glorifies the God of Heaven.
