Exodus 22:28; Leviticus 24:16; Acts 6:11; Acts 23:5

28 wYou shall not revile God, nor wcurse a ruler of your people.


16 Whoever qblasphemes the name of the Lord shall surely be put to death. All the congregation shall stone him. The sojourner as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death.


11 Then bthey secretly instigated men who said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God.


And Paul said, eI did not know, brothers, that he was the high priest, for it is written, fYou shall not speak evil of a ruler of your people.
