| 1 And God spake all these words, saying, 2 I am Jehovah thy God,
who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.|
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor 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. 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself
unto them, nor serve them, for I Jehovah thy God am a jealous God, visiting
the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the
fourth generation of them that hate me, 6 and showing lovingkindness unto
thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of Jehovah thy God in vain; for Jehovah
will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou
labor, and do all thy work; 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath unto
Jehovah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son,
nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor
thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 for in six days Jehovah made
heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh
day: wherefore Jehovah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12 Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long in the land
which Jehovah thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy
neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor
his ass, nor anything that is thy neighbor's.
18 And all the people perceived the thunderings, and the lightnings, and
the voice of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw
it, they trembled, and stood afar off. 19 And they said unto Moses, Speak
thou with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
20 And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you,
and that his fear may be before you, that ye sin not. 21 And the people
stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.
22 And Jehovah said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of
Israel, Ye yourselves have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.
23 Ye shall not make other gods with me; gods of silver, or gods
of gold, ye shall not make unto you. 24 An altar of earth thou shalt make
unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt-offerings, and thy
peace-offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in every place where I record my
name I will come unto thee and I will bless thee. 25 And if thou make me
an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stones; for if thou lift
up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it. 26 Neither shalt thou go up by
steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not uncovered thereon.
