I Am That I Am
I Am that I Am (×Ö¶×”Ö°×™Ö¶×” ×Ö²×©Ö¶××¨ ×Ö¶×”Ö°×™Ö¶×”, Ê¾ehyeh Ê¾aÅ¡er Ê¾ehyeh [Ê”ehËˆje Ê”aËˆÊƒer Ê”ehËˆje]) is a common English translation (JPS among others) of the response God used in the Hebrew Bible when Moses asked for his name (Exodus 3:14). It is one of the most famous verses in the Torah. Hayah means “existed” or “was” in Hebrew; “ehyeh” is the first person singular imperfect form and is usually translated in English Bibles as “I will be” (or “I shall be”), for example, at Exodus 3:12. Ehyeh asher ehyeh literally translates as “I Will Be What I Will Be”, with attendant theological and mystical implications in Jewish tradition. However, in most English Bibles, this phrase is rendered as I am that I am.
Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh (often contracted in English as “I AM”) is one of the Seven Names of God accorded special care by medieval Jewish tradition. The phrase is also found in other world religious literature, used to describe the Supreme Being, generally referring back to its use in Exodus. The word Ehyeh is considered by many rabbinical scholars to be a first-person derivation of the Tetragrammaton, see for example Yahweh.

1. self-made man
Someone who comes from low origins and against all odds, breaks out of his inherited social position, climbs up the social ladder and creates a new identity for himself.
Benjamin Franklin was a self-made man, who rose from being a son of a candle-maker to the one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America.
A “why-phi” perspective to consider.
