Surrounding the throne of Elohim were 24 thrones. Because 24 is a multiple of 12, it symbolizes a perfectly established government. King David created 24 divisions of Levites from the clans of Eleazer and Itamar and determined the week each clan would serve in David’s Tabernacle for worship. Each division had leader making 24 priestly leaders in the priesthood (1 Chronicles 24:7-18).
The Memorial Name of God
For centuries the ‘Yod Hey Vav Hey’ has been considered too holy to speak, consequently, the actual pronunciation of God’s memorial name has been lost. It was replaced in Jewish tradition with HaShem meaning ‘The Name’ or Adonai meaning ‘Lord.’ In more Orthodox communities, the words ‘God’ and ‘Lord’ have their vowels removed and become G-d and L-rd to show respect for God’s name. Because of these historical and cultural anomalies, the Preface in most Bibles says that the divine name for God or Tetragrammaton has been changed from the יהוה to LORD with all capitals letters.
