The Restored Name King James Version is a revision of the King James Bible which uses the Hebrew tetragrammaton YHWH for the name of God. This is one of several sacred name Bibles in English, produced with the explicit goal of printing God's name in English letters in a way that is faithful to the original Hebrew form. It is an undated online version that is based on the Holy Name Bible text of the Scripture Research Association as modified by the individual hosting the website.
It spells the form of the Hebrew tetragrammaton, the name that God gave to Moses, as the original four consonants, in captital letters: "YHWH". Also, the Hebrew word Elohim is transliterated. The translation of Exodus 3:16 illustrates both of these, "Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, YHWH Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt."
In the New Testament, it spells the name of Jesus in a way that tries to capture the pronunciation of the name's Hebrew origin: "Yahushua". It also uses the Hebrew-based form of the name for God in the New Testament (which was written in Greek): "Yahushua answering said unto them, 'Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to YHWH the things that are YHWH's'" (Mark 12:17).
