For God did not make us like the nations of other lands, and did not make us the same as other families of the Earth. God did not place us in the same situations as others, and our destiny is not the same as anyone else’s.
The One who spread out the heavens, and made the foundations of the Earth, and whose precious dwelling is in the heavens prqyer, and whose powerful Presence is in the highest heights.
Adonai is our God, there is none else. Our God is truth, and nothing else compares. As it is written in Your Torah: There is no other.
