HAWAIIAN MYTHOLOGY ASSOCIATES FOUR GODDESSES WITH THE SNOW-COVERED MOUNTAINS OF MAUNA KEA, AND EACH OF THESE GODDESSES ARE BEAUTIFUL, WITTY, AND FULL OF WISDOM. THEY ARE THE DAUGHTERS OF HAUMEU, THE EARTH MOTHER, AND KANE, THE SKY GOD. THE FOUR SISTERS ARE BEAUTIFULLY ATTIRED. IN THE WINTER, THEY WEAR BRILLIANT WHITE WHICH IS LAID ASIDE AS THE WEATHER WARMS. IN THE SUMMER, THEY ARE ADORNED IN THE FINEST GOLDEN KAPA WHICH IS SAID TO BE MADE FROM THE RAYS OF THE SUN.

"POLIAHU" IS ONE OF THE GODDESS OF MAUNA KEA, OF SNOW, ICE, AND COLD. SHE IS THE ELDEST DAUGHTER OF HAUMEU AND KANE. SHE IS HIGHLY REVERED FOR WHEN THE SNOW MELTS, IT BRINGS LIFE-GIVING FRESH WATER TO THE ISLANDS. CONSIDERED ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GODDESSES, MANY MEN HAVE PURSUED HER. SHE LOVED FREQUENTING THE CLIFFS WHICH OVERLOOKED THE HAMAKUA COAST AND SOMETIMES WOULD EVEN JOIN IN THE THE GAMES THE MORTALS WERE ENGAGING IN. SHE LOVED CAVORTING WITH HUMAN MEN. THE MOST IMPORTANT SURVIVING MYTH ABOUT POLIAHU INVOLVES HER GETTING THE BEST OF THE VOLCANO GODDESS, PELE. IT SEEMS THAT PELE, ANGRY THAT POLIAHU HAD BESTED HER IN ONE OF THE GAMES, ATTEMPTED TO RETALIATE BY SENDING STREAMS OF GLOWING LAVA DOWN THE MOUNTAINSIDE, BUT POLIAHU QUICKLY BLANKETED BY SENDING DOWN STORMS OF SNOW TO FREEZE THE MOLTEN ROCK IN PLACE.

"LILINOE "IS THE GODDESS OF THE MIST AND YOUNGER SISTER OF POLIAHU. SHE IS ALSO KNOWN AS THE "GODDESS OF HALEAKALA". SHE RULED OVER THE REALM OF DEAD FIRES AND DESOLATION. LILINOE HAS THE POWER TO HOLD IN CHECK ANY ERUPTIONS BY QUENCHING THE VOLCANO IN THICK LAYERS OF SNOW. SHE DRESSES POLIAHU'S HAIR SO THAT IT IS ALWAYS SOFT AND FINE. LEGEND SAYS THAT SHE WAS THE WIFE OF NANA-NU'U, THE MORTAL WHO SURVIVED THE GREAT FLOOD BY MAKING HIS HOME IN A CAVE HIGH ON THE SLOPES OF MAUNA KEA.

"WAIAU "(WATER OF SUFFICIENT DEPTH TO BATHE) IS THE GUARDIAN OF THE LAKE WHICH BEARS HER NAME, A BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN LAKE WHICH GLISTENS IN ONE OF THE CRATER CONES HIGH ATOP THE SUMMIT. THEY SAY THE LAKE IS BOTTOMLESS AND REACHES DEEP DOWN INTO THE HEART OF THE MOUNTAIN. IN THIS LAKE, WAIAU BATHES POLIAHU.

"KOHOUPOKANE "IS THE GODDESS OF HUALALAI. LITTLE IS KNOWN ABOUT THIS SISTER, BUT IT IS SAID THAT SHE IS A MASTER KAPA MAKER.

WORKING WITH THESE GODDESSES SHOULD REMIND US THAT OUR OWN FIERY ERUPTIONS AND EMOTIONAL UPHEAVALS ARE FOLLOWED BY NEW BEGINNINGS AND CHANGE.

Egyptian Deity Jah Or Iah Image
Jah is often used as a shortened form of the Tetragrammaton. The Tetragrammaton is often translated (especially in older English versions of the Bible) by use of the term "LORD", and the word "Hallelujah" by the phrase "Praise ye the LORD" (Psalm 104:35 KJV and footnote). Thus, partially translated and partially transliterated, the term could be rendered "Praise Jah."

In the original text of the Hebrew Bible, "Jah" occurs 50 times, 26 times alone and 24 times in the term "Hallelujah" (see footnote to Psalm 104:35). In the King James Version of the Bible it is transliterated as "JAH" i.e. all capital letters, in only a single instance: "Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him." (Psalm 68:4). "An American Translation" renders the Hebrew word as "Yah" in this verse. The complete Tetragrammaton is not always rendered as Jehovah. Rotherham's "Emphasised Bible"Masoretic Tanach: Psalms 68:19, - Yah Elohim.YHWH includes 49 uses of Jah.

In the West Indies, the recent popularity of reggae, and the Rastafari movement's referring to Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia as "Jah" or "God," has led to the use of the names "Jah" and "I and I" in Rastafari circles. This term is also used in hip-hop Pigeon John of LA Symphony in California, and Seph1 of Tempo Valley in Hawaii. Used also in popular Rastafari terms such as "Jah" among young Rastas. According to the band P.O.D., they use such terms to refer to elements of the Bible in songs such as "The Messenjah" from "Satellite", "Freedom Fighters" from "Payable on Death" and "Praise Jah ">demonstrating the evolution of reggae to hip-hop from the dance hall in Jamaica to rhyme, by such artists as

The Assemblies of Yahweh use the term Yah, which they believe sounds more accurate and would comply with the Name of YHWH. In the "Sacred Scriptures Bethel Edition" Bible the Name YHWH and abbreviated form Yah is found. The "New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures", a Bible translation used and distributed by Jehovah's Witnesses, features the word "Jah" in all 26 places in the Hebrew-Aramaic Scriptures, commonly known as the Old Testament, and translates the Hebrew 'Hallelujah' as 'Praise Jah, you people' in all 24 occurrences of that expression in the Hebrew Scriptures, and in all four occurrences of the corresponding Greek expression in the Book of Revelation 19:1, 3, 4 and 6 in their Christian Greek Scriptures

Due to the frequent use of the word, in some parts of the world, notably South Africa, a Rastafari is colloquially referred to as Jahman.
