Exodus 23:13 (AV)
And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect:
and make no mention of the name of other gods,
neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

Joshua 23:7 (AV)
That ye come not among these nations,
these that remain among you;
neither make mention of the name of their gods,
nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them,
nor bow yourselves unto them:

Isaiah 42:8 (AV)
I am the LORD: that is my name:
and my glory will I not give to another,
neither my praise to graven images.

Psalm 16:4
Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god:
their drink offerings of blood will I not offer,
nor take up their names into my lips.

Now, it is possible that you can use the name "Yahweh” (Jupiter) and the God of Eternity, the God of Israel, will wink at this error.

Psalm 44:20-21 (AV)
If we have forgotten the name of our God,
or stretched out our hands to a strange god;
Shall not God search this out?
for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.

In the Old Testament there are seven compound names of Jehovah that cover the whole life of the redeemed people.
These are

Jehovah-jireh (Genesis 23 :14), meaning redemption and providence,
Jehovah-rapha, the Lord that healeth (Exodus 15:26),
Jehovah-nissi, the Lord our banner (Exodus 17:8-15),
Jehovah-shalom, the Lord our peace (Judges 6:24),
Jehovah-raah, the Lord my shepherd (Psalm 23:1),
Jehovah-tsidkenu, the Lord our righteousness (Jeremiah 26:6), and
Jehovah-shammah, the Lord is present (Ezekiel 48:35);

the last referring to the final city of God, the New Jerusalem, when the great work of redemption will be complete and God's abiding presence shall be our light forever.
