Law 9: Yahweh's Book of Laws

Lev 22:32 Neither shall ye profane My holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel: I am Yahweh which hallow you
Lev 22:32 (ISV)  "You are not to defile my sacred name, because I've been set apart in the midst of the Israelis. Furthermore, I am Yahweh who sets you apart,

Matthew Henry Commentaries

ThiS verse concludes with such a general charge as we have often met with, to keep Yahweh's commandments, and not to profane His holy name, Lev_22:31, Lev_22:32. Those that profess Yahweh's name, if they do not make conscience of keeping His commandments, do but profane His name.

The general reasons are added:

Yahweh's authority over them - I am Yahweh; His interest in them Hebrews - I am your Sovereign; the title He had to them by redemption - “I brought you out of the land of Egypt, on purpose that I might be your Sovereign;” the designs of His mercy (grace) concerning them

I am Yahweh that hallow you; and the resolutions of His justice, if He had not honour from them, to get Himself honour upon them - I will be hallowed among the children of Israel. Yahweh will be a loser in His glory by no man at last; but sooner or later will recover His right, either in the repentance of sinners or in their ruin.
