Thinx 73: Before

“You shall have no other gods before me.


The word before is significant, implying not replacement but rather putting YHWH at the bottom of the barrel and stacking deities on top which you work through slowly, only very rarely getting to the bottom.

Thought about that in context of Jeremiah 12:2b
They always talk about you, but they really care nothing about you.
