comment What nuance does “before my face” convey in Exodus 20:3?
@Only he is good., Psa. 106:19:20 is one of the tikkunei soferim. Some believe it should say "his glory," rather than "their glory." That is, the Israelites changed God's glory into the glory of an ox (by making the golden calf).

comment What is the significance of the phrase ὁ ὢν καὶ ὁ ἦν καὶ ὁ ἐρχόμενος in the Apocalypse?
In a week, I will review the answers to see which is most detailed, which has the most support (citations, quotes from scholars), and of course, which answers the questions posed. Thanks everyone for your contributions thus far. They are each excellent. Also, if you give your opinion on what something means, and it isn't that obvious, please corroborate your opinion by citing a reputable scholar who concurs with your opinion.
