You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.
You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.
Do you still think it’s enough just to believe that there is one God? Well, even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror!
Do I hear you professing to believe in the one and only God, but then observe you complacently sitting back as if you had done something wonderful? That's just great. Demons do that, but what good does it do them?
You have the belief that God is one, and you do well: the evil spirits have the same belief, shaking with fear.
You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder.
You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe––and tremble!
