26“But listen to this message from the lord, all you Judeans now living in Egypt: ‘I have sworn by my great name,’ says the lord, ‘that my name will no longer be spoken by any of the Judeans in the land of Egypt. None of you may invoke my name or use this oath: “As surely as the Sovereign lord lives.”
