    Berkhof explains this pretty well I think.

    Divine simplicity means he cannot and is not divided.

    So for example, he transcends time. That means his Being is not divided into past, present and future.

    Hear O Israel…

    Shama Yisrayel, Yahweh Elohaynu, Yahweh echad.

    Shama: imperatival form of “to hear”. “Listen” might be a better translation.

    Yisrayel: Israel.

    Yahweh: The covenantal name of God.

    Elohaynu: our God. Elohim is God, but with this -nu ending, it means our God. (The “ay” means it’s in construct, for you who are paying attention.)

    Yahweh again.

    Echad: one.

    Listen Israel Yahweh our God Yahweh one.

    I just thought you’d find it…fun to say. 🙂

  7. Yisrayel says:

    The two Wittnesses opened the Seal of the Covenant and the Lord answered: “My Beloved Son.. I hear Your Voice”. A mighty and terrible Tornado swept the Land of Israel. “The Unholy, who do not serve, will perish”. Only Truth itself can withstand the holy Light. “Father.. I am Your Son”

    That was cryptic.
