a God is one; The Lord, is the true God; he is God alone. The Lord our God, is one Lord.
b The Lord, he is God, in Heaven above, and upon the Earth beneath ; there is none else.
c The Lord, he is God; there is none else besides him : Before him, there was no God formed, neither shall there be after him.
d Tho' there be, that are called Gods, whether in Heaven or in Earth; yet, to us, there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him.
e All the Gods of the People, are Idols; which, by Nature, are no Gods: They cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good, For, we know, that an Idol is nothing in the World; and, that a Graven Image is profitable for nothing; and, that there is none other God but

a Who, in the Heaven, can be compared unto the Lord? who, among the Sons of the Mighty, can be likened unto him?
6 Thou art Great, O Lord God, there is none like thee; neither are there any Works like unto thy Works.
c Among the Gods, there is 'hone like unto thee, O Lord; there is no God, like thee, in Heaven above, or on Earth beneath.
d There is none like thee, in all the Earth: Among all the Wise Men of the Nations, and in all their Kingdoms, there is none like unto thee, O King of Nations.
e God is not (as the wicked think) altogether, such an one as our felves; for, his Ways are not our Ways, nor his Thoughts, our Thoughts: But, as the Heavens are higher than the Earth, so are his Ways higher than our Ways, and his Thoughts than our Thoughts.
f Forasmuch as we are the Off-spring of God, we ought not to think, that the Godhead is like unto Gold, or Silver, or Stone graven by Art, and Man's Device.
a He is far above all Principality, and Power, and Might, and Dominion, and every Name that is named, not only in this World, but also in that which is to come.
6 The Lord is greater than all Gods, and he is to be feared above all Gods: For all the Gods of the Nations are Idols ; but the Lord made the Heavens.
c God is greater than Man. It is he that fitteth upon the Circle of the Earth, and the Inhabitants thereof are as Grashoppers.
d Behold, the Nations are as a drop of a Bucket, and are counted as the small Duft of the Balance : All the Inhabitants of the Earth are reputed as nothing before him ; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and Vanity.
h The Lord he is the Eternal God, who liveth for ever and ever.
