Isa. 45: 5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

Isa. 44: 8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

Isa. 46: 9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Isaiah 42:8 I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

Isaiah 48:11 For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.

Notice in all these passages the God speaking is an “I” and a “Me”, a single person speaking; no a “we” or an “us”. There is nothing here of an abstract nature(There is no agreement with them whether the divine nature is numeric or generic) as the definition of the one God which can then manifest as three persons. The one God is always identified as a single person. Of course the Trinitarians will Move the Goal Posts at this point, deny Private Judgment and Perspicuity of Scripture,  and claim that when we are speaking about the divine nature which is infinite “human language” is insufficient to describe the incomprehensible nature of God.

Not only so they are comfortable simply admitting that these passages in Isaiah utterly contradict other undisputable passages of scripture from the Old Testament and New that another agent worked with God in creation.

Gen. 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:

1 Cor. 8: 6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

Eph. 3: 9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ

So what is Yah saying? He is saying that he is the only first cause and independent sovereign creator.

So what of these passages of Yah stating he will not share his glory with another as he seems to do with the Lord Jesus Christ in the New Testament? Dr. Samuel Clarke states in his Modest Plea,

And again, to deny our understanding of this contradicts not only the New Testament but the Old Testament as well,

Daniel 7: 13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. 14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
