Divine Code for October 5, 2022
Today: Pages 215-216
From topic 2:1 -- 2:3
Gentiles are commanded to fear and honor G-d. This is included in the Torah's prohibition of blasphemy, as G-d commanded Adam (Genesis 2:16):
''I am G-d'' - do not curse Me;
''I am G-d'' - the fear of Me shall be upon you.
It is obvious that the primary reason for the prohibition of blasphemy verse, ''You shall not curse G-d,'' the Hebrew word for ''curse'' has the same root as the term for ''disgrace.''
From this it can be understood that any action that causes a desecration of G-d's Name, and the opposite of bringing honor to G-d's Name, is forbidden. For this reason, the particular prohibitions discussed in this chapter are branches of the prohibition of blasphemy, although they were not spelled out explicitly for Gentiles in the Hebrew Scriptures.
