1 Then God spoke all these words:
2 I am the Lord
your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house
3 you shall have
no other gods before me.
4 You shall not
make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that
is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is
in the water under the earth.
5 You shall not
bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous
God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third
and the fourth generation of those who reject me,
6 but showing
steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me
and keep my commandments.
7 You shall not
make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord
will not acquit anyone who misuses his name.
8 Remember the
sabbath day, and keep it holy.
9 For six days
you shall labour and do all your work.
10 But the seventh
day is a sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work—you,
your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock,
or the alien resident in your towns.
11 For in six
days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in
them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the
sabbath day and consecrated it.
12 Honour your
father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land
that the Lord your God is giving you.
13 You shall not
14 You shall not
15 You shall not
16 You shall not
bear false witness against your neighbour.
17 You shall not
covet your neighbour’s house; you shall not covet your neighbour’s
wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that
belongs to your neighbour.
