shortened form of YHWH (Tetragrammaton), Yahweh, Jehovah
Poetic texts like the Psalms often have specific rhythmic and structural patterns. So, using “YH” instead of “YHWH” could ensure that these patterns remain consistent and fluid. That being said, even in its abbreviated form, it would have been recognized as a representation of “YHWH.” Its use still invokes the reverence for and character of God, even if not fully spelled out.
