“‘This is what the sovereign Lord says: On the day I chose Israel I swore 1  to the descendants 2  of the house of Jacob and made myself known to them in the land of Egypt. I swore 3  to them, “I am the Lord your God.”

Ezekiel 20:7

20:7 I said to them, “Each of you must get rid of the detestable idols you keep before you, 4  and do not defile yourselves with the idols of Egypt; I am the Lord your God.”
