Matt 1:21
21    And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS [Yahshua - Yah saves/is salvation]*: for he shall save his people from their sins.
* The Greek interlinear has Ieeson here (said to be a form of Iesous; many names end in s in the Greek manuscripts; I therefore believe the s should be dropped). This is exactly or approximately "Yahshua" in Aramaic/Hebrew, said to be the language(s) His mother, He, and the Apostles spoke.

Acts 13:33
33    God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

Ps 2:1-12
1    Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2    The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD [YHWH], and against his anointed, saying,
3    Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4    He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5    Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6    Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7    I will declare the decree: the LORD [YHWH] hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8    Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9    Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10    Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11    Serve the LORD [YHWH] with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12    Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Phil 2:8-9
8    And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9    Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

John 1:49
49    Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

Luke 2:10-11
10    And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11    For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Acts 4:11-12
11    This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
12    Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

commandments of men (KJV)
Matt 15:9
9    But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (KJV)

Mark 7:7
7    Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (KJV)

Titus 1:14
14    Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. (KJV)


Joel 2:32
32    And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD [YHWH] shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD [YHWH] hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD [YHWH] shall call.

Rom 10:12-17
12    For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14    How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15    And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
16    But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
17    So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Ps 34:1-3, 18
1    I will bless the LORD [YHWH] at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2    My soul shall make her boast in the LORD [YHWH]: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3    O magnify the LORD [YHWH] with me, and let us exalt his name together.
18    The LORD [YHWH] is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Heb 13:12, 15
12    Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without [outside] the gate.
15    By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
