VYHH VHYH VHYH

HYVH HYHV HHVY

HHYV HVYH HVHY

YHVH YVHH YHHV

These are the twelve permutations of the YHVH (Yahweh, God).

“Let the Tetragrammaton be resolved into twelve variations, the most that we can possibly extract. Anything we find will be bound to designate the essence. These are the symbols: YHVH, YHHV, YVHH, HVHY, HVYH, HHYV, VHYH, VYHH, VHHY, HYHV, HYVH, HHVY. The Kabbalists consider these twelve names to be only one name because they signify only the one thing despite the twelve methods of exposition.”

These permutations have been attributed to the twelve months, the twelve disciples, the twelve planets, the twelve signs of the Zodiac, and the twelve ancient Hebrew Tribes.
