63 - PROFANING THE NAME OF GOD


Leviticus 22:32 --You shall not profane My holy name, but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel. I am the LORD who sanctifies you”
Leviticus 18:21 -- “And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD.”

“What constitutes profanation of the Name? (Rab says:) If for instance I take meat from the butcher and do not pay him at once.* R. Johanan says: In my case it is a profanation if I walk four cubits without uttering words of Torah or wearing phylacteries.”**

* He should thus learn to treat his debts dishonestly by delaying payment and then omitting it altogether
** Yoma 86a (Sonc. ed. p. 427)

“The greater a man is, the more scrupulous should he be in all things, doing more than the strict letter of the law requires.”*

* Mishneh Torah, Mada, Hilchoth Yesode ha-Torah V, 11
