Abraham’s Insufficient Knowledge Of The Name Jehovah

Abraham names the place where he nearly kills Isaac after Jehovah. But according to (Ex.6:3), Abraham couldn’t have known that God’s name was Jehovah. (22:14)

Respond:(Exodus 6:3) is very clear “I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty or El Shaddai (Heb) (Gen 17:1), but by my name ‘The LORD’ “Jehovah” I did not make myself known to them. According (Gen 22:14) Abraham knew the name of God Almighty, Yahweh but in (Ex 6:3) it is said that Yahweh God did not reveal his name, there is one probability. The First Five Books are written by Moses and the story of Abraham is written by Moses too, so he could had assumed that Abraham could had known or it could be a mistake that instead or writing “God Almighty” he could had written “Jehovah-Jireh” means Jehovah provides.
