|Bible Question (short): FAME!|
Question (full): Exodus 9:16, "But for this very purpose have I let you live, that I might show you My power, and that My name may be declared throughout all the earth."
This passage contains the concept of fame. God's purpose was to cause the worldwide proclamation of his name.

I'm not interested in "spiritual" or pietistic answers. Such answers I can anticipate. Just give me the biblical data and your summary of that data.
