Yaweh, who is and was and is to come.
This unique phrase, is alluding to the Septuagint reading of Exodus 3:14 And Yaweh spoke to Moses, saying, “I am the One who exists.” And he said, “Thus you will say to the children of Israel, ‘The One who exists has sent me to you.’, it focuses on God’s eternal nature of past, present, and future.
