Before the people entered Canaan, they set camp.  Moses was busy writing final exhortations for the people, as he would not be traveling with them into Canaan.  The last writings of Moses were a reiteration of the law that the LORD had given.  This review of everything that the LORD had imparted to Moses is called Deuteronomy, or ‘second law’.  Some passages that refer to the the Holy Name are reiterations of what we have read in the book of Exodus.  Here they are:

Deuteronomy 5: 11  ‘You shall not take the Name of the LORD, your God, in vain.  For the LORD will not leave unpunished him who takes His Name in vain.’

Deuteronomy 6: 13  The LORD, your God, shall you fear; Him shall you serve, and by His Name shall you swear.

Deuteronomy 10: 8 “At that time the LORD set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark of the covenant of the LORD and minister to Him, and to give blessings in His Name, as they have done to this day.
