You’re right. The Most High will straighten our affairs in the wilderness before we enter the land of our fathers. As for the name, I know what you mean in terms of how Yah’s name ending with “ah” would be blasphemous. However, that is incorrect. When you spell the name of Yah in Hebrew it’s: יהוה. That word can be pronounced multiple different ways. Ya-ha-wa, Yah-ho-ah, Ya-hoo- (as in Yahu). Yah-wa, Yah-we, Yah-wo, Yah-wi.
Now, the reason why I said your explanation is incorrect is because the “ah” at the end of Yahuah, the h is silent. When spelt with the nikkud (vowel points) the h has no vowel point, therefore it is silent and not pronounced. So it cannot be attributed to the feminine “ah”. In the same way that you can spell the name Judah as “Yahuda” or “Yahudah”. Both are the exact same word, pronounced exactly the same, the only difference being one is spelt with a “h” at the end, the other without it.
And again, the h is silent, so it has no affect on the pronunciation of the word, therefore it doesn’t change the gender of the word. Did what I say make sense or do you need me to explain it better?
