Do not make an idol for yourself, whether in the shape of anything in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth.
"Do not make idols for yourselves, set up a carved image or sacred pillar for yourselves, or place a sculpted stone in your land to bow down to it, for I am the LORD your God.
You must not do the same to the LORD your God, because they practice for their gods every detestable thing the LORD hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.
So I sent you all My servants the prophets time and time again, saying, Don't do this detestable thing that I hate.
Do not plot evil in your hearts against your neighbor, and do not love perjury, for I hate all this"-- the LORD's declaration.
Yet you do have this: you hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
In the same way, you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans.
