20: "I will sing of the mercies of the LORD forever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations." Psalm 89:1 | the story of your name | Ethan Michael Webb With strength and endurance, inspiring the world to seek the identity of Almighty God | We originally named you Elijah Jericho, but shortly after, your mother grew discontent and spent hours praying and researching the meanings of names. This is what the Lord gave her. Your daddy, with change not being his favorite thing, took some convincing! He agreed moments before you were born for your first name to be Ethan. Not until the last day at the hospital, and after much pleading on your mother's part, did he agree to Michael as your middle name. We both LOVE your God-given name.
21: Ethan has the meaning "strong, firm, steadfast, enduring, long-lived." It is a Biblical name derived literally from the element ethan with the meaning "enduring." An original form of the name is the Hebrew Eythan. The name was borne in the Bible by Ethan the Ezrahite, who was described as a man whom only King Solomon surpassed in wisdom.(I Kings 4:31). This man also penned Psalm 89. The name was adopted modestly by English Puritans in the 17th century. Its popularity in the USA received a boost from the fame of Ethan Allen (1738-1789) the American revolutionary and hero. Michael has the meaning "who resembles God," and is quite popular in the Bible. The most famous Michael is the archangel and angelic captain (Dan. 2:21) who battled satan over the body of Moses (Jude :9) and expels satan from heaven. (Rev. 12:9). The name Michale consists of three parts: 1) the common inquisitive particle that seeks after identity: Who? 2) common particle of comparison: like, as 3) the shorter version of Elohim, meaning God. | The name Michael is commonly translated with "Who Is Like God? " But, more accurately, the name denotes a question or rather an inquisition for the identity of God: Who's God? What's God like? As captain of the heavenly armies and expeller of satan, Michael's main mission is perhaps to inspire humans into seeking the identity of God. E W M Who is like Thee among the gods, O Lord? Who is like Thee, majestic in holiness, awesome in praises, working wonders?" Exodus 15:11
