EZEKIEL 35

10 Because thou hast said, These two nations and these two countries [Goyim [Israel and Judah] ]shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas [although]Yahweh was there:

11 Therefore, as I live, saith Adonai Yahweh, I will even do according to thine anger, and according to thine envy [kina] which thou hast used out of thy hatred [showed in thy hatred] against them; and I will make Myself known among them, when I have judged thee.

12 And thou shalt know that I am Yahweh, and that I have heard all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel [harim of Yisroel], saying, They are laid desolate, they are given us to consume.

Thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel

In this it blasphemed the Deity himself. This principle is well illustrated in Ezek. 35, where a statement made by Edom concerning Israel and their country is styled blasphemy against the mountains of Israel, because it was false. Edom said, as he also says to this day, "these two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess it, though Yahweh were there."

Now, He had promised the land to Jacob, and to him he will give it for an everlasting inheritance. Hence, every saying subversive of this purpose is blasphemy against the country, and blasphemy and boasting against the Eternal Spirit: for, if Edom's purpose of possession could possibly be established, the Deity's veracity would be destroyed, and his character for faithfulness overthrown.

"Thus," in making false statements concerning the destiny of Israel, Judah, and their country, O Edom, saith Yahweh, "with your mouth ye have boasted against Me, and have multiplied your words against Me; I have heard: so that when the whole earth rejoiceth, I will make thee desolate."

...Hence, to blaspheme or speak evil and injuriously of God's people, and promises, is regarded by Him as blasphemy against Himself.
