Which Mistake Enosh Made?

Updated: Aug 3, 2022

The Oblication of Aknowledging our Creator

Or the Prohibition of worshiping false gods.

The prohibition against worshiping false idols consists of the prohibition against serving these false idols and it consists of the commandment to recognize and know G-d. One of the most important things is belief in Oneness of G-d and in His power.

Psalms 33:6 testifies to His Great power.

By the word of HaShem the heavens were made, and by the breath of His mouth all their hosts.

With 10 utterances the universe and the world were created. Without any effort, without any effort, like a sigh.

Psalms 119:89 says:

Forever, O G-d, Your words stands firm in the heavens.

From this we can learn that G-d's words are constant, if He stopped speaking the world would return to nothing.

The mistake Enosh made was that he saw the sun, the moon and the stars and thought that G-d had given them the power to rule the world and that it was therefore appropriate to serve and worship them.

The One whom we worship, give honor to, and thank is the Creator of heaven and earth.

Let us therefore bless Him and give Him praise.
