On Sinai God said: “Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me” (Exod. xx. 2-7). That is to say, “Thou shalt worship the true God only; thou shalt worship no false gods.” In the First commandment interior and exterior worship is required of us. To this commandment Our Lord referred when He said to Satan: “It is written the Lord thy God shalt thou adore, and Him only shalt thou serve” (Matt. iv. 10).

In the First Commandment God enjoins upon us to worship Him, and forbids idolatry and every false form of worship.
