Behold, the days come, says Jehovah, that I will cut a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah, not according to the covenant that I cut with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which covenant of Mine they broke, although I was a husband to them, says Jehovah; Jer 31:31-32

monogamous God. God is not a polygamous God. We will often hear monogamy
only Christians defend their position by proclaiming such anti Biblical
The worse case of Scriptural gymnastics can be found in the mouths of those who proclaim to be Bible students, they claim they rightly divide the Word of Truth and know what it is to compare spiritual with spiritual, to test things differing.
Such Christians know that Jehovah of the Old Testament is the Lord Christ of the New as do many other Christians who compared the statements concerning Jehovah with those given to our Saviour Christ Jesus. The reader might like to consider just a few verses from Isaiah:
Isa 43:3 For I am Jehovah your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
Isa 43:10 You are My witnesses, says Jehovah, and My servant whom I have chosen; that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me no God was formed, nor shall there be after Me.
Isa 43:11 I, I am Jehovah; and there is none to save besides Me.
Isa 43:12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shown, when there was no strange god among you; therefore you are My witnesses, says Jehovah, that I am God.
Isa 45:15 Truly You are a God who hides Yourself, O God of Israel, the Savior.
Isa 45:18 For so says Jehovah the Creator of the heavens, He is God, forming the earth and making it; He makes it stand, not creating it empty, but forming it to be inhabited. I am Jehovah, and there is no other.
Isa 45:21 Declare and bring near; yea, let them take counsel together. Who has declared this of old? Who has told it from then? Is it not I, Jehovah? And there is no other God besides Me; a just God and a Savior; there is none besides Me.
Isa 45:22 Turn to Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.
We leave the student to find the NT passages which ascribe the same virtues to our blessed Saviour.
dividers acknowledge that Christ is Jehovah which brings a quandary for
those opposing polygyny. You see, if our Lord is Jehovah of the OT, then
He is already in polygynous New Covenant relationship with the dual
houses of Israel and Judah.
