The Honor of His Name

When God is faithful to his promises, as he always is, it is dangerous for those who do not obey. I came across this in conjunction with my scripture reading this morning.

The people have been exiled from the land because Yahweh has kept the covenant he made with them at Sinai. As Eichrodt states, "All that survives the destruction of state and Temple is the God who is jealous for the honour of his Name" (James Hamilton, God's Glory in Salvation through Judgment, 186).
