Deuteronomy 6:13  (King James Version)
Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.
 


fear
2 ; 5:29 Deuteronomy 10:12 Deuteronomy 10:20 13:4 Matthew 4:10 ; Luke 4:8

and serve him
Our Saviour quotes these words thus: "And him only [aut mon,] shalt thou serve;" from which it would appear, that the word {levaddo} was anciently in the Hebrew text, as it was in the Septuagint, Coptic, Vulgate (illi soli), and Anglo-Saxon
Dr. Kennicott argues that without the word only, the text would not have conclusive for the purpose for which our Lord advanced it. It is proper, however, to observe, that the word {levaddo} is not found in any MS. yet collated, though retained in the above versions.
