For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:
First, let us accept the fact that God is too big and our brains too small for God to conform to our understanding of Him.
Second, let us remember that whenever God uses the word 'one' for Himself in Hebrew of the Old Testament, it is a 'united one', like we say in English 'a family' or 'a group' and not a singular one as used in 'one pen' or 'one shirt'.
WHY DO WE WORSHIP JESUS?
1. He is God
2. He is Son of God
3. He accepted worship and did not stop anyone from worshipping Him.
Why do we say He is God?

Ps. 110:1 - the Lord said to my Lord (Mat. 22:42-45) Here David calls 'Son of David' as Lord. Jesus was addressed as Son of David multiple times and He accepted that. David calls Jesus 'my Lord'. David's Lord = Jesus
