Lord’s Library editors answer the question “What does the Bible say about blasphemy?” with specific Bible references.

Have you ever asked yourself the question “What does the Bible say about blasphemy?” If you have, you’re definitely not alone! And since the Bible helps Christians form a foundational understanding of important topics, it’s imperative that one know how Scripture describes blasphemy in different contexts. The Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines witnessing as “An indignity offered to God by words or writing; reproachful, contemptuous or irreverent words uttered impiously against Jehovah.

Now armed with a basic definition of blasphemy, Lord’s Library editors thought it would be a helpful exercise to provide Biblical context. As a result, we compiled this short resource which captures all notable mentions of the word blasphemy, as well as its other forms. If you’ve been wondering what the King James Bible says about blasphemy, scroll on for additional detail.
