"This passage is intended to indicate the etymology of Jehovah (YAHUWAH), as understood by the Hebrews, no one has ventured to doubt." Smith's Bible Dict.
In other words this passage from Exodus 3:14 is the meaning, or definition, or explanation, or interpretation of the sacred name.
The Assembly of Yahvah has noticed this passage was indicating the etymology of the sacred name, which they explain in their Bibles. Whence Yah from hayah the first part, and VAH from havah the last part, and quote excellent scholars who show that havah (originally hawah) is the older form of hayah. Both hayah and havah have the same meaning to exist. But the portion that has not been noticed was "asher". Asher means that, who, and which is etc.
This passage from Exodus 3:14 has not two parts, but three! Another word in Hebrew that can interchange with asher is "huw" #1931. Example, compare the following passages and usage's of asher and huw.
"And Elohim saw every thing that(asher) He had made, and, behold, it was very good." Gen. 1:31. "And the gold of that (huw) land is good." Gen. 2:12
"Behold, Rebekah came out, who (asher) was born to Bethuel." Gen. 24:15
"Now these are the generations of Esau, who (huw) is Edom." Gen. 36:1
See by this how both asher and huw can interchange with each other!
We know that "hu" is definitely part of the sacred name because of Eliyahu the prophet, whose name means my Elohim is YAHUWAH.
We have inserted here the oil emblem as the ensign of Asher. Because in that Jacob said, "Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and shall yield royal dainties." Gen. 49:20. The word "fat" here is "shamen" #8082, very closely related to "oil" shemen #8081. As a matter of fact shemen is also translated "fat" in Isa. 25:6; 28:1,4
"And of Asher he said, Let Asher be blessed with children; let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil." Deuteronomy 33:24
"Happy is that people, whose Elohim is YAHUWAH." Psalm 144:15
Behold a son listening to join the praise to Yahuwah the Judge, my wresting with a troop gave happy wages in my dwelling. Yahuwah added His son of the right hand.
