In the Hebrew text referred to below, the Israelite God is called Elohim. The text goes on to say, however, Yah, short for Yahweh, is his name (Psalm 68:4). See also verses 18 and 20, where the name YHWH is used. Compare also verse 1 with Numbers 10:35—in the latter of these two almost identical verses, YHWH stands in place of Elohim.
