So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.God seems overly preoccupied with his image. If he's not afforded the respect he thinks he's due, he becomes enraged.
