The Ten Commandments

Exodus 20:1-17

  1: 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.
  3: You shall have no other gods before Me.
  4: You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or 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 iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,
  6: but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
  7: You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.
  8: Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
  9: Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
10: but the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male 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 sabbath day and made it holy.
12: Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.
13: You shall not murder.
14: You shall not commit adultery.
15: You shall not steal.
16: You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17: You shall not covet your neighbors house; you shall not covet your neighbors wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.
