Blasphemy is to speak against God. The word blaspheme means to speak evil of or defame or revile. It was a capital offense to the Jews, for which death by stoning was specified. "And he that blasphemes the name of the Lord, he shall certainly be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemes the name of the Lord, shall be put to death." The custom was to shove the victim over the cliff and drop rocks on him, or throw rocks down, until he was dead.

To blaspheme in the old Jewish law was to revile or to curse God or the king, which was God's representative. It suggests intentional affront toward God or something sacred or holy. A man is guilty of blasphemy, when he speaks of God or his attributes injuriously or ascribes qualities to Him as do not belong to Him, or robs Him of those which do. "Whosoever curses his God shall bear his sin."
[322, 380, Leviticus]
