The name of Yahweh appears in the scriptures 6,823 times and has been replace with the word "Lord" that comes from the word Baal; which is a Phoenician deity, used as a symbol of idolatry.
Remember back in the time of that Cainite queen Jezebel, the wife of king Ahab, which did more evil in the site of Yahweh than all of the kings of Israel before him.
1 Kings 16: 29-33
29 And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel: and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years. 30 And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him. 31 And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him. 32 And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. 33 And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him.
We will be reading about the great prophet Elijah, and what he did to the priests ofBaal = Lord; later on in further Bible studies.

If you have a Strong’s Concordance, you may wish to take a look at the word"Jesus" which will take you to #2424 in the Greek dictionary of the New Testament and that will take you to #3091 in the Hebrew and Chaldee dictionary of the Old Testament, which will take you to #3442 and #3443 which is pronounced Yahshua, meaning He will save. Look in the front of your Strong’s Concordance and you will find under "directions and explanations."
#1. An asterisk* calls attention to the fact that in the text quoted, that the leading word is changed to some other word in the revised version, When you look at the word"Jesus" you will find many asterisks throughout.
You can also look in the back of many Bibles and find the words Yahweh and Yahshua as well as in most regular dictionaries and encyclopedias.
I hope this study will help to encourage you to look into the name of our Heavenly Father, Yahweh throughout your search for the Truth. May you begin to call upon the true name of our Father from this day forward. Praise his Name and mighty and marvelous works forever more.
May his Grace and blessings be with you, oh Israel!
