Re: Ehyeh אֶֽהְיֶ֖ה

כזב

Is כזב a verb or a noun?

And why is an aleph added to the end of the word to make it a place name in 1 Chron. 4:22?

Ehyeh אֶֽהְיֶ֖ה

Is אֶֽהְיֶ֖ה (Ehyeh) a form of the Tetraggramaton?

Is it ever used as a proper name of G-d in the Bible, the Targums, the Mishna, or the Talmud?
