Deuteronomy 5:9
shalt not: Exo 20:4-6 the Lord: On the import of the word yehowah, which we translate Lord, see note on Exo 3:15. The word elohim, which is rendered God, in the singular, eloah, and in Arabic allah, is derived from the Arabic alaha, he worshipped, adored, was struck with astonishment, fear, or terror, and hence, he adored with sacred honour and veneration. It also signifies, he succoured, liberated, kept in safety, or defended. Here we learn that elohim denotes the sole object of adoration; the perfections of whose nature must astonish all who contemplate them, and fill with horror all who rebel against him; that consequently he must be worshipped with reverence and religious fear; and that every sincere worshipper may expect help in all his weaknesses, etc., freedom from the power, guilt, and consequences of sin, and support and defence to the uttermost. a jealous God: Exo 34:14 visiting: Exo 34:7, Jer 32:18, Dan 9:4-9, Mat 23:35, Mat 23:36, Rom 11:28, Rom 11:29 Reciprocal: Lev 26:1 - Ye shall Lev 26:39 - and also Deu 28:18 - the fruit of thy body Deu 32:16 - provoked Deu 32:41 - them that hate Jdg 2:12 - bowed 2Ki 9:26 - I will requite 2Ki 10:6 - your master's sons 2Ch 19:2 - hate the Lord Eze 8:3 - provoketh Eze 16:45 - that loatheth Eze 18:19 - Why Joh 15:24 - hated Act 7:43 - figures
