However, because by this deed, thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme; the son that is born unto thee shall surely die.
Now therefore, what have I here, saith the LORD, that my people is taken away for nothing? And those among my people that take rule over them make them to howl, saith the LORD; and my name is continually blasphemed every day.
Also I said, What you do is not good, do you not walk in the fear of our God, that ye not be the reproach of our enemies the Gentiles?
O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? Shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?
if they profane my statutes and do not keep my commandments,
My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:
And when they entered unto the Gentiles, where they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of the LORD and are gone forth out of his land.
You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore, I will visit all your iniquities against you.
Woe unto the world because of offenses! For it must needs be that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!
But being judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
