Jehovah Jireh

“The Lord Will Provide”

Jehovah Jireh or Yahweh Yireh is the name memorialized by Abraham when God provided the ram to be sacrificed in place of Isaac. This account is found in Genesis chapter 22. In verse 2, we read what God had instructed Abraham: He said, ‘Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.’”

Without reservation, Abraham, trusting God and His Plan, set out to do as he was told. Isaac noticed that they carried no animal to sacrifice. Never doubting, Abraham explained in verse 8: Abraham answered, “Elohim will provide a lamb for the burnt offering, Son.” Continuing to read the account brings us to verse 13 and we see what happened: “And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son.

 Abraham called the mountain Jehovah-Jireh as a memorial to this event. It is interesting to note that this mountain, Moriah, was where Solomon’s temple was built and today is known as Temple Mount. 

The Hebrew Jireh means “to see” or “to provide”. God always provides adequately when the time comes. Many Bible passages elaborate on this aspect of God’s character—that He loves to bless us and provide for our needs (Psalms 65:9-13; 107:9; 145:16; Matthew 6:26; Philippians 4:19; James 1:17).

Application: Just as God provided a ram as substitute for Isaac, He provided His son Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice. God will meet all our needs. 

Scripture with Jehovah Jireh

Genesis 22:14

ESV: So Abraham called the name of that place, “The Lord will provide”;as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided.


NOG: Abraham named that place Yahweh Yireh. It is still said today, “On the mountain of Yahweh it will be provided.”

Prayer to Jehovah Jireh

“Jehovah Jireh, so many worries overtake me. I want to know what will happen, what I should do, what I should not do, how my needs will be met, if what I think I need is really a ‘want’. Help me to remember that You not only see my needs, You will provide them. Help me to wait and trust patiently.

Thank You for providing for me thus far. Thank You for being with me even when it seems I am in a whirlpool of problems. You provided for my salvation, I know You will provide for my daily needs.
Thank you, Amen”
