Exodus 20:2 I am the LORD (Y..H) your (singular) G-d, Who brought you (singular) out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Life as lived should be the flower of knowledge; but in order that life may blossom out of knowledge, knowledge alone is not enough. [...] you must transfer it from the mind to the heart, which decides your course of action; it must penetrate you through and through, it must become part of yourself.  Then only will it become the basis of your activity.  It will become your life.

"I the LORD am your G-d"   I am your Creator, your Lawgiver, your Judge; the Director of your thoughts, your feelings, your words and your actions.  Every one of your internal & external possessions has come to you from My hand; every breath of your life has been apportioned to you by Me.  Look upon yourself and all that is yours as My property, and devote yourself wholly to Me, with every fraction of your property, every moment of your time; with mind, feeling, bodily strength and means, with word and action.
