"Tetragrammaton" redirects here. For other uses, see Tetragrammaton (disambiguation).

The Tetragrammaton in Phoenician (1100 BC to AD 300), Aramaic (10th century BC to 1 BC) and modern Hebrew scripts.

Yahweh is a proposed English reading of יהוה, the name of the God of Israel, as preserved in the original consonantal Hebrew Bible text. These four Hebrew letters [ i.e. יהוה ] are often collectively called the Tetragrammaton (from the Greek τετραγράμματον, meaning 'four-letter [word]'),[1] and are usually transliterated JHWH in German, and either YHWH, YHVH, JHWH or JHVH in English.

Tetragramaton MEANS 'four-letter' - where did you come up with 'six-letter'?

If the Torah was written during the Babylonian captivity IN Babylon how is it that Ezra found it in the Temple in Jerusalem after the return sponsored by Cyrus?

Are you just making this stuff up as you go?
