{Deuteronomy 5:9} Thou shalt not x3808 bow down y7812 z8691 thyself x7812 unto them, nor x3808 serve 5647 z8714 them: for x3588 I x595 the LORD 3068 thy God 430 [am] a jealous 7067 God, 410 visiting 6485 z8802 the iniquity 5771 of the fathers 1 upon x5921 the children 1121 unto x5921 the third 8029 and fourth 7256 [generation] of them that hate 8130 z8802 me,
shalt not:
"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth: ... And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments." {Exd 20:4-6}
On the import of the word yehowah, which we translate Lord, see note on "And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this [is] my name for ever, and this [is] my memorial unto all generations." {Exd 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:
"For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name [is] Jealous, [is] a jealous God:" {Exd 34:14}
"Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear [the guilty]; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth [generation]." {Exd 34:7} + "Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts, [is] his name," {Jer 32:18} + "And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; ... To the Lord our God [belong] mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;" {Dan 9:4-9} + "That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. ... Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation." {Mtt 23:35-36} + "As concerning the gospel, [they are] enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, [they are] beloved for the fathers' sakes. ... For the gifts and calling of God [are] without repentance." {Rom 11:28-29} - Cross Reference Bible Search
