Poetic Law: First Commandment

poetic law first commandment—————————————————-

“You shall have no other gods before me.”

The LORD our God, The LORD is one
The first, the last, the Ancient of Days
“Before me, no God was formed,” nor after,
The first, the last, the Ancient of Days

How long will you limp between two opinions,
contested Elijah to hundreds of prophets
of Baal and Asherah, shouting and cutting, 
in vain idolatry hoping to profit.

No fire fell, no miracle happened,
No god, no power, no clapping, until
Elijah called on our God the Father
who rained down flames and licked up the water

When the people saw it they fell on their faces,
“The LORD, he is God; the LORD, he is God.”
He will not share his glory with another
He demands our submission to him, no other.
