Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Now if you forget the Lord your God at all and follow other gods, worshiping and prostrating yourselves before them, I testify to you today that you will surely be annihilated.
and the curse if you pay no attention to his commandments and turn from the way I am setting before you today to pursue other gods you have not known.
For you must not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
Do not pay allegiance to other gods and worship and serve them. Do not make me angry by the things that you do. Then I will not cause you any harm.'
1 John 5:21
Little children, guard yourselves from idols.
