BELIEF IN ONE G-D
PROHIBITION OF IDOLATRY

Every person should believe in the existence of the one and only Creator of the universe.

He creates the world and every person, and knows all our actions and thoughts.

He observes them and judges each person according to his deeds.

He is the one and only G-D whom we must worship and to whom we should pray.

The practical meaning of this commandment is a complete prohibition of bowing down to or worshipping idols of any kind or of believing in another god or any other created entity or force.
