He who knows not and knows not he knows not, is a fool, shun him

He who knows not and knows he knows not, is simple, teach him

He who knows and knows not he knows, is asleep, wake him

He who knows and knows he knows, is wise, follow him

Lady Burton for the Life of Sir Richard Burton as an Arabian Proverb 1894

Take some time to decipher these words and you will gain some good insight.

“You shall speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘If anyone curses his God, then he will bear his sin. Moreover, the one who blasphemes (slanders) the name of the LORD (YHVH) shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall certainly stone him. The alien as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death.’ ” (emphasis added) Leviticus 24:15-16 NASB

The Name of the LORD is to be reverenced and held in highest honor and respect. Many today do not grasp the gravity of just how holy our God is. We, in our finite minds, cannot begin to fully grasp His holiness. He is absolutely PERFECT in all that He is. Stop and think about this for a moment. Can we fathom just how awesome our God is? In reality, the word awesome should be exclusively used of God only. Until we see Him face to face in heaven, we will never fully grasp this. In the mean time, we must make it the ultimate priority to NEVER use His holy Name flippantly or cheapen it in any way. Those who honor it will be blessed by Him for doing so. To say Hallelujah as a matter of an expletive, treads on this since the Name Yah is at the end of this word. It translates, Praise Ye Yah or praise YHVH. This should be said as a term of worship, not a cheap expletive. The so-called Lord’s prayer says, “Hallowed be Thy Name,” meaning, set apart as Holy and revered.

P.S.: The Name YHVH is often mistranslated as Jehovah. The Hebrew knows of no such translation.

Just a little food for thought on this hot, July afternoon.
