How to Pronounce YHWH

This is a question that many people ask. It seems that there are as many explanations as people who offer them. The first pronunciation that the English-speaking world used was Jehovah.

Now it seems that the most popular pronunciation is Yahweh (YAH-way). The following video is the best explanation that I have heard on this subject so I thought I would share it with you.
