Let them praise the name of Jehovah.—Psalm 148:13.
Countless Bible verses show the importance of God’s name and its sanctification. (Exodus 3:15; Psalm 83:18; Isaiah 42:8; 43:10; John 17:6, 26; Acts 15:14) Jehovah God—the Author of the Bible—inspired its writers to use his name freely. (Ezekiel 38:23) Omitting the name, found thousands of times in ancient manuscripts, shows disrespect for the Author. The evidence for retaining God’s name in the Bible has not diminished but grown. The 2013 revision of the New World Translation includes the name 7,216 times, which is 6 more than the 1984 edition. Five of the additional instances are found at 1 Samuel 2:25; 6:3; 10:26; 23:14, 16. These were restored primarily because the Dead Sea Scrolls, which predate the Hebrew Masoretic text by over 1,000 years, contain the name in these verses. Also, one occurrence at Judges 19:18 was restored as a result of further study of ancient manuscripts.
