Yahweh Abhors Israel's Pride

9 And it shall come to pass that if there remain ten men in one house, they shall die [by the pestilence that comes with war]. 10 And then a man's uncle or kinsman, he who is to make a burning to cremate and dispose [of his pestilence-infected body], comes in to bring the bones out of the house, and he shall say to another still alive in the farthest parts of the house, Is there anyone else with you? and he shall say, No. Then shall the newcomer say, Hush! Hold your [cursing] tongue! We dare not so mention the name of the Lord [lest we invoke more punishment]. 11 For behold, the Lord commands and He will smite the great house into ruins and the little house into fragments.
