SHASU-LAND OF YAHU. The earliest evidence for the name Yahweh comes from the temple at Soleb in Sudan and dates to the 14th century B.C.E. This view presents the temple’s remains with a column in the foreground that shows two cartouche inscriptions, including one noting the “Shasu-land of Yahu” (left cartouche). At the nearby Amara West temple, a slightly later set of inscriptions lists this same land alongside the “Shasu-land of Seir,” a region associated with biblical Seir and closely linked with the land of Edom in southern Jordan.
