Reader comment on item: Where the Nazi "Big Lie" Endures
in response to reader comment: It all began in Eden

"HEAR, Oh Israel, The LORD, OUR G-D, is ONE"

After millenia, it's high time we translated that sentence correctly from the original Hebrew :

HEAR, Oh Israel, YAHWE (The Lord) IS OUR GOD, (but) YAHWE is ONE

That "(but)" comes after "OUR GOD" which in the original Hebrew is a plural (our Gods).

At that particular time (8th century BC) the sages and the prophets had to strenuously emphasize that all the gods venerated by the Israelites were IN YAHWE . But that YAHWE was ONE.
