The Old Testament commandment to worship no other gods except Yahweh implies that Yahweh also assumed the functions of other gods. This development began in the 9th century. At that time, the weather god Yahweh moved into a monarchical position. In the kingdoms around Israel and Judah, there were similar processes. After Israel's fall in the 7th century, Judah endeavoured to unify the regionally varying manifestations of the Yahweh cult. In the 6th century, the Yahwistic history was an important witness to the fact that Yahweh quite naturally assumed manifold divine roles for himself. In the 5th century, the Priestly Writing created a system of gradual revelation on that basis. It is only on the fringes of the Old Testament that the idea is to be found that other gods apart from Yahweh do not exist.
