comment Is there sufficient evidence to support the theory that ancient Israel practiced monolatry?
Couldn't the passages you cite also be interpreted the opposite way? For example, I believe the root word "מלבדוֹ", which you have interpreted as meaning "beside," could also mean "above." Using that definition, the passages could be interpreted to mean that there are no other gods above Hashem, perhaps implying the existence of others.

comment Implications of Samoa skipping a Friday
@Daniel Unfortunately, I am neither smart enough to devise another question that hasn't already been asked, nor am I knowledgable enough to answer any of those that remain unanswered. I'm still lurking, though!
