Thus in the first Commandment given to Israel the Lord said,
"I am Jehovah, thy God...thou shalt have no other gods
[mighty ones] before me [my equals]...for I Jehovah thy God
am a jealous God." Exod. 20:2-5
Again Moses declares, "Hear, O Israel, Jehovah our God
is one--Jehovah; and thou shalt love Jehovah thy God with all
thine heart and with all thy soul and with all thy might."
(Deut. 6:4,5) And this is the very passage of scripture which
our Lord Jesus himself commended as the very essence of truth.
When inquired of respecting the greatest commandment, he said,
quoting this scripture, "Thou shalt love the Lord [Jehovah]
thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with
all thy mind; this is the primary and great commandment."
(Matt. 22:37,38) Again we read, "I am Jehovah; that is
my name: and my glory [honor] will I not give to another."
(Isa. 42:8) And let not the context escape our notice, for this
positive declaration that the name Jehovah is exclusively that
of "the Father of Lights with whom is no variableness"
immediately follows his prophetic proclamation of Messiah as
Jehovah's honored and elect Son-servant, saying:
"Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect in whom my
soul delighteth: I have put my spirit upon him. He shall bring
forth judgment to the Gentiles....He shall not fail nor be discouraged
until he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall
wait for his law. Thus saith God, Jehovah, I Jehovah have called
thee in righteousness and will hold thine hand and will keep
thee, and will give thee for a covenant of the people, for a
light of the Gentiles; to open the blind eyes, to bring out
the prisoners from the prison [death], and them that sit in
darkness out of the prison-house. I am Jehovah: THAT IS MY NAME."
