The TEN COMMANDMENTS
Then God spoke
all these words, saying,
2 "I am the Lord your God, who brought
you out of the
land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
shall have no other gods besides Me.
shall not make for yourself an idol,
or any like-
ness of what is in heaven above or on earth
in the water under the earth.
5 "You shall not worship them or serve
them; for I, the
Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the
of the fathers on the children, on the third
and the four
fourth generations of those who hate Me,
6 but showing lovingkindness to
thousands, to those
who love Me and keep My commandments.
"You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in
for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who
takes His name in vain.
"Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 "Six days you shall labor and do all
10 but the seventh day is a sabbath of the
Lord your God;
in it you shall not do any work, you or your
your male servant or your female
servant or your cattle or your sojourner who
stays with you.
11 "For in six days the Lord made the
heavens and the
earth, the sea and all that is in them, and
rested on the
seventh day; therefore the lord blessed the
and made it holy.
"Honor your father and your mother,
that your days
may be prolonged in the land which the Lord
God gives you.
"You shall not murder.
shall not commit adultery.
"You shall not steal.
shall not bear false witness against your
"You shall not covet you
neighbor's house; you
covet your neighbor's wife or his male
servant or his ox or his donkey or anything
belongs to your neighbor."
