  • Graven Images

    Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I יהוה thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Exodus 20:4-6 (Deuteronomy 5:8-10)

    Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am יהוה your God.Leviticus 26:1

    I am יהוה: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Isaiah 42:8

    Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that יהוה spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female, The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air, The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth: And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which יהוה thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven. Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of יהוהyour God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which יהוה thy God hath forbidden thee. For יהוה thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. Deuteronomy 4:15-19,23,24
