" Christian Warning - Be Careful "


Exodus 23:13

And in all things that I have said unto you
be circumspect:
and make no mention
of the name of other gods,
neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.


Exodus 23:13

And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect:
and make no mention of the name of other gods,
neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

Be careful to do everything I have said to you.
Do not invoke the names of other gods;
do not let them be heard on your lips.

Be sure to obey all of these instructions; and remember -- never mention the name of another god.

Be attentive to all that I have said to you. Do not invoke the names of other gods; do not let them be heard on your lips.

Now (1) concerning everything which I have said to you, be on your guard; and (2) do not mention the name of other gods, not let them be heard from your mouth.

In all I have said to you take heed; do not mention the name of other gods [either in blessing or in cursing]; do not let such speech be heard from your mouth.

And you are to be on your guard respecting all that I have said to you; (1) and you must not mention the name of other gods. It should not be heard upon your mouth. (2)

Give heed to all that I have told you. Never mention the name of any other god; it shall not be heard from your lips.

Listen to everything that I, the Lord, have said to you. Do not pray to other gods; do not even mention their names.

Pay careful attention to everything I told you. Don't mention the name of other gods or let them be heard on your lips.

And in all things that I have said <0559> unto you be circumspect <08104>: and make no mention <02142> of the name <08034> of other <0312> gods <0430>, neither let it be heard <08085> out <05921> of thy mouth <06310>.

And in all that I have said to you, be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.

Original Hebrew text from the Interlinear Bible.

And be watchful in all that I have said to you. And you shall not mention another god by name;
it shall not be heard from your mouth.

In that, You should be made perfect, complete, and whole in every manner, (this stature being conditional); upon what I have commanded and promised of the contents of your heart (to be absent of pride or bitterness); always remember to remain on guard and watchful (with restraint) for your own preservation, as you in no way allow, give place, or give regard to another (which is a hindrance) that he might occupy preeminence (for your heart is a special possession (being the seat of power) of The One True God); not allowing your consent to be granted (being revealed by your attention and interest)
