“Who should not fear you, King of the nations? It is what you deserve. For among all the wise people of the nations and among all their kingdoms, there is no one like you.” (Jeremiah 10:7)
Who would not choose to worship such a God, who can do everything, rather than such dead idols as the nations worship, which can do nothing?
Who would not be afraid of offending or abandoning a God whose name is so great in might?
Which of all the nations, if they understood their interests rightly, would not fear him who is the King of nations?
Those are the questions the people of Israel, in fact, all the nations of the earth should be asking, as Matthew Henry says, “the worship of all is due him and is therefore fittingly and appropriately directed to him.”
What does this show?
That “there is a wonderful rightness and harmony in worshiping only God. It is right that the One who alone is God should be served, that the One who is Lord of all should be served by all, that the One who is great should be greatly feared and greatly praised.”
