Zohar 1:110b

Jewish Mysticism
When the lower splendor, Adonai [i.e., the tenth gradation or Shekhinah] joins with the supernal splendor, YHWH [i.e., the sixth gradation or Tif’eret] the hidden name [YAHDWNHY, i.e., the combination of the two names] is produced which the true prophets know and [by means of which] they [visually] contemplate the supernal splendor.

Translated by Elliot Wolfson in Through a Speculum that Shines- Vision and Imagination in Medieval Jewish Mysticism, Princeton- Princeton University Press, 1994.
