ďThou shalt have no other gods before Me.Ē

No Other God is an English translation of the first section of Viretís commentary on the Ten Commandments, published originally in Geneva in 1554. Within this volume Viret exposits the first commandment as well as the preface to the Law.

Written as a conversation between two fictitious people, Daniel and Timothy, Viretís characters discuss Godís presence among His creatures (and particularly among His chosen people), His names and titles, and why He chose to reveal Himself in the way that He did. They also discuss how the Law given to Israel is applicable to Christians today and the difference between human and divine laws. The question of how Godís Law is to be fulfilled or transgressed is considered, as well as the practical implications of the fact that God looks at a manís heart and desires as well as at his words and external works.

At Timothyís request, Daniel examines the nature of God and how the true God is to be distinguished from false gods. Before the conversation ends, the pair also addresses the honor which God requires of us in His Law, the honor we owe to men, the nature of true faith and trust, the fruits of true faith, and much more.

Joining Pierre Viret is fellow-Reformer John Calvin with a sermon on the meaning and applicability of the first commandment of the Law.
