Exodus 20

Ten Commandments  God spoke all these words

• I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me.

• You shall not make any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And showing mercy to thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

• You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that takes his name in vain.

• Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord your God: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day: therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

• Honor your father and your mother: that your days may be long in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

• You shall not kill.

• You shall not commit adultery.

• You shall not steal.

• You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

• You shall not covet your neighbor’s house, you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is your neighbor’s.

All the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they moved back and stood afar off.

The people (to Moses): you speak with us, and we will hear: but do not let God speak with us, lest we die.

Moses (to the people): Do not fear: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that you do not sin.

The people stood afar off, and Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was.

The Lord (to Moses): You shall say this to the children of Israel, You have seen that I have talked with you from heaven. You shall not make gods of silver, neither shall you make gods of gold. You shall make an altar of earth for me and shall sacrifice your burnt offerings on it, and your peace offerings, your sheep, and your oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come to you, and I will bless you. And if you will make me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stone: for if you lift up your tool upon it, you have polluted it. Neither shall you go up by steps to my altar, that your nakedness be not discovered on it.
