  • Brianna for verse 8
    Wow! As I read a lot of the other comments it was encouraging to see that everyone agreed that God 's name should be used in the bible. It really does make sense when you think about.the Bible is full of names. Jesus name certainly has not been taken out, and even the angel 's name, such as Gabriel was mentioned. So why would God 's name not be used???? Why is there a capital LORD for each place God 's name should be used? Whether Jehovah or Yahweh, a name should be used. LORD is a title, not a name!
  • Jonathan hurtado for verse 8
    The reason the name Jehovah is not used is because the practice of not using it saying the divine name cones from the Jews. Even today in the synagogue Jews will not utter the name yehweh or Jehovah.
  • GEORGE LE CARRE for verse 8
    When the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses through Moses out of Egypt,he had Mose name taken down from all
    the buildings and monuments and it was forbidden to even utter Moses name.This was done as a punnishment and insult to Mose as he was so deeply hated by the Pharaoh.As bible students
    and professional scholars know,Pharaoh was anti-typical for Satan the devil.So in layman's terms,Almighty God's name JEHOVAH has been removed from the Holy Bible by Satan earthly
    seed,The Pope and Christendom..FACT

    Nowadays,evil people like Ian Huntly h
  • This verse shows the importance of using God's name. He alone is the most glorious and we should not give praise to graven images or idols. This shows how we should not use idols in our worship.
  • Here we go again , God's name that is used in the Bible almost 7,000 times was wiped out in this verse again and replaced with Lord. And there are even people they really believe that Lord is name. Unbelievable. Even when some people have titles Lord and everybody knows that that is not their real name.
