"Indeed, ask now concerning the former days which were before you, since the day that God created man on the earth, and [inquire] from one end of the heavens to the other. Has [anything] been done like this great thing, or has [anything] been heard like it?
"Has [any] people heard the voice of God speaking from the midst of the fire, as you have heard [it], and survived?
"Or has a god tried to go to take for himself a nation from within [another] nation by trials, by signs and wonders and by war and by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm and by great terrors, as the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?
"To you it was shown that you might know that the LORD, He is God; there is no other besides Him.
