Daily Bible Verse - 9/23/2007 - Deuteronomy 6:4

NIV Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.
KJV Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
NASB Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!
Deuteronomy 6:4
Hear: The Hebrew word is shema˒. The verse starts with a command for the people to respond properly to God. They must listen and obey.
The L
ord our God indicates the people's relationship with the living God. He had come into the lives of His people; it was not that they had ascended to Him. He had saved them from slavery in Egypt, guided them through the wilderness, and given them His instructions. Further, He was about to give them His land.
The L
ord is one means "the Lord alone." There is only one God.
