That seal is a welcome--and convincing--addition to the discussion. Moreover, from what I know of Egyptian orthography [the writing of foreign names and toponyms] they would never have rendered such a basic word as Semitic "yad" [hand] with a /w/.

        My thoughts exactly Marianne. Muller was hung up on the missing "h" (PSBA 10, p. 81) but we have strong evidence that it was not voiced in the pronunciation of yhwdh (i.e. Judah). Regards, Tory
