  • Taking His Name in Vain

    Thou shalt not take the name of יהוה thy God in vain; for יהוה will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Exodus 20:7 (Deuteronomy 5:11)

    And יהוה spake unto Moses, saying, Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him. And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin. And he that blasphemeth the name of יהוה, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of יהוה, shall be put to death. Leviticus 24:13-16

    And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am יהוה. Leviticus 19:12

    But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which יהוה hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of יהוה, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which יהוה hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. Deuteronomy 18:20-22

    Wherefore glorify ye יהוה in the fires, even the name of יהוה God of Israel in the isles of the sea. Isaiah 24:15

    Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I. Isaiah 52:6

    And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind unto the place which יהוה shall choose; Then he shall minister in the name of יהוה his God, as all his brethren the Levites do, which stand there before יהוה. Deuteronomy 18:6,7

    And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near; for them יהוה thy God hath chosen to minister unto him, and to bless in the name of יהוה; and by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be tried: Deuteronomy 21:5 (10:8, 18:5)
