Jehovah-Tsidkenu
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A title the prophet Jeremiah gives to the Messiah (Jer 23:6) and to Jerusalem (Jer 33:16). It is often rendered “The Lord our righteousness.” The representation of the name of the God of Israel as Jehovah is based on a misunderstanding of Hebrew scribal conventions. For more information about the origin of the name Jehovah, see this article: Jehovah.
