The Second Commandment reads: You shall have no other gods beside Me. Bothered by the possibility of “other gods,” Rashi illuminates this phrase. He interprets “other gods” to mean gods who are indifferent to the plight of humankind, gods who remain "other" to the cares and cries of those who turn to them. Taken this way, the Second Commandment is a continuation of the Frist Commandment which stressed that belief in God includes God’s concern for what happens on earth: I am the LORD your God Who brought you out of the land of Egypt.
