Then will gifts be brought to the LORD of hosts from a people
tall and bronzed, from a people dreaded near and far, a nation
strong and conquering, whose land is washed by rivers-to Mount
Zion where dwells the name of the LORD of hosts. [ISA 18:7]
Thus it is within the land, and among the peoples, As with an olive tree after it is beaten, as with a gleaning when the vintage is done. These lift up their voice in acclaim; from the sea they proclaim the majesty of the LORD: "For this, in the coastlands, give glory to the LORD!
In the coastlands of the sea, to the name of the LORD, the God of Israel!" [ISA

For you have fulfilled your wonderful plans of old, faithful and
true. [ISA 25:1]
Yes, for your way and your judgments, O LORD, we look to you;
Your name and your title are the desire of our souls. [ISA 26:8]
O LORD, our God, other lords than you have ruled us; it is from you only that we can call upon your name. Dead they are, they have no life, shades that cannot rise;
For you have punished and destroyed them, and wiped out all memory of them. [ISA
Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of the house of Jacob, who redeemed Abraham:
Now Jacob shall have nothing to be ashamed of, nor shall his face grow pale. When his children see the work of my hands in his midst,
They shall keep my name holy; they shall reverence the Holy One of Jacob, and be in awe of the God of Israel.
See the name of the LORD coming from afar in burning wrath,
with lowering clouds! His lips are filled with fury, his tongue is
like a consuming fire [ISA 30:27]
I am the LORD, this is my name; my glory I give to no other,
nor my praise to idols. [ISA 42:8]
Your nakedness shall be uncovered and your shame be seen; I will take vengeance, I will yield to no entreaty, says our redeemer, Whose name is the LORD of hosts, the Holy One of Israel. [ISA
Hear this, O house of Jacob called by the name Israel, sprung from the stock of Judah,
You who swear by the name of the LORD and invoke the God of Israel without sincerity or justice, Though you are named after the holy city and rely on the God of Israel, whose name is the LORD of hosts. Things of the past I foretold long ago, they went forth from my mouth, I let you hear of them; then suddenly I took action and they came to be. [ISA
Who among you fears the LORD, heeds his servant's voice, And
walks in darkness without any light, Trusting in the name of the
LORD and relying on his God? [ISA 50:10]
For I am the LORD, your God, who stirs up the sea so that its
waves roar; the LORD of hosts by name. [ISA 51:15]
But now, what am I to do here? says the LORD. My people have
been taken away without redress; their rulers make a boast of it,
says the LORD; all the day my name is constantly reviled. [ISA
For he who has become your husband is your Maker; his name is
the LORD of hosts; Your redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, called
God of all the earth. [ISA 54:5]
And the foreigners who join themselves to the LORD, ministering to him,
Loving the name of the LORD, and becoming his servants - All who keep the sabbath free from profanation and hold to my covenant, Them I will bring to my holy mountain and make joyful in my house of
prayer... For my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples. Thus says the Lord GOD, who gathers the dispersed of Israel:
Others will I gather to him besides those already gathered. [Taken
from ISA 56:6-8]
Those in the west shall fear the name of the LORD, and those in
the east, his glory; For it shall come like a pent-up river which
the breath of the LORD drives on. [ISA 59:19]
All the vessels of the sea are assembled, with the ships of
Tarshish in the lead, To bring your children from afar with their
silver and gold, In the name of the LORD, your God, the Holy One
of Israel, who has glorified you. [ISA 60:9]
Then they remembered the days of old and Moses, his servant; Where is he who brought up out of the sea the shepherd of his flock?
Where is he who put his holy spirit in their midst; Whose glorious arm was the guide at Moses' right;
Who divided the waters before them, winning for himself eternal renown; Who led them without stumbling through the depths like horses in the open country, Like cattle going down into the plain, the spirit of the LORD guiding them?
Thus you led your people, bringing glory to your name. Look down from heaven and regard us from your holy and glorious palace!
Where is your zealous care and your might, your surge of pity and your mercy?
O Lord, hold not back, for you are our father. Were Abraham not to know us, nor Israel to acknowledge us, You, LORD, are our father, our redeemer you are named forever. [ISA
At that time they will call Jerusalem the LORD'S throne; there all nations will be gathered together to honor the name of the LORD at Jerusalem, and they will walk no longer in their hardhearted wickedness. In those days the house of Judah will join the house of Israel; together they will come from the land of the north to the land which I gave to your fathers as a heritage.
If you wish to return, O Israel, says the LORD, return to me.
If you put your detestable things out of my sight, and do not stray, Then you can swear, "As the LORD lives," in truth, in judgment, and in justice;
Then shall the nations use his name in blessing, and glory in him.

thieves? I too see what is being done, says the LORD. [JER 7:11]

LORD. They have defiled the house which bears my name by setting
up in it their abominable idols. [JER 7:30]

your name. [JER 10:6]

all things; Israel is his very own tribe, LORD of hosts is his
name. [JER 10:16]
Therefore, thus says the LORD concerning the men of Anathoth
who seek your life, saying, "Do not prophesy in the name of
the LORD; else you shall die by our hand." [JER 11:21]

LORD, for the honor of your name - Even though our rebellions are
many, though we have sinned against you. [JER 14:7]
Why are you like a man dumbfounded, a champion who cannot save?
You are in our midst, O LORD, your name we bear: do not forsake
us! [JER 14:9]
Lies these prophets utter in my name, the LORD said to me. I
did not send them; I gave them no command nor did I speak to them.
Lying visions, foolish divination, dreams of their own
imagination, they prophesy to you. Therefore, thus says the LORD: Concerning the prophets who
prophesy in my name, though I did not send them; who say,
"Sword and famine shall not befall this land": by the
sword and famine shall these prophets meet their end. [JER 14:14-15]

and the happiness of my heart, Because I bore your name, O LORD,
God of hosts. [JER 15:16]

them in no doubt Of my strength and my power: they shall know that
my name is LORD. [JER 16:21]

to inflict evil, how can you possibly be spared? You shall not be
spared! I will call down the sword upon all who inhabit the earth,

Thereupon the princes and all the people said to the priests
and the prophets, "This man does not deserve death; it is in
the name of the LORD, our God, that he speaks to us." [JER
There was another man who prophesied in the name of the LORD,
Uriah, son of Shemaiah, from Kiriath-jearim; he prophesied the
same things against this city and land as Jeremiah did. [JER
I did not send them, says the LORD, but they prophesy falsely
in my name, with the result that I must banish you, and you will
perish, you and the prophets who are prophesying to you. [JER
For they prophesy lies to you in my name; I did not send them,
says the LORD. [JER 29:9]
This is what the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, has to say about those who prophesy lies to you in my name, Ahab, son of Kolaiah, and Zedekiah, son of Maaseiah: I am handing them over to Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, who will slay them before your eyes. All the exiles of Judah in Babylon will pattern a curse after them: "May the LORD make you like Zedekiah and
Ahab..." For they are criminals in Israel, committing adultery with their neighbors' wives, and alleging in my name things I did not command. I know, I am witness, says the LORD.
[Taken from JER 29:21-23]
Thus says the LORD, He who gives the sun to light the day, moon and stars to light the night;
Who stirs up the sea till its waves roar, whose name is LORD of hosts: If ever these natural laws give way in spite of me, says the LORD,
Then shall the race of Israel cease as a nation before me forever.
Ah, Lord GOD, you have made heaven and earth by your great might, with your outstretched arm; nothing is impossible to you. You continue your kindness through a thousand generations; and you repay the fathers' guilt, even into the lap of their sons who follow them. O God, great and mighty, whose name is LORD of hosts, great in counsel, mighty in deed, whose eyes are open to all the ways of men, giving to each according to his ways, according to the fruit of his
deeds [JER 32:17-19]
The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah a second time while he was still imprisoned in the quarters of the guard: Thus says the LORD who made the earth and gave it form and firmness, whose name is LORD: Call to me, and I will answer you; I will tell to you things great beyond reach of your
Because you burned incense and sinned against the LORD, not obeying the voice of the LORD, not living by his law, his statutes, and his decrees, this evil has befallen you at the present day. Jeremiah said further to all the people, including the women: Hear the word of the LORD, all you Judeans in the land of Egypt: Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: You and your wives have stated your intentions, and kept them in fact: "We will continue to fulfill the vows we have made to burn incense to the queen of heaven and to pour out libations to her." Very well! keep your vows, carry out your resolutions! But listen then to the word of the LORD, all you people of Judah who live in Egypt; I swear by my own great name, says the LORD, in the whole land of Egypt no man of Judah shall henceforth pronounce my name, saying, "As the Lord GOD lives."
