The Ten Commandments
And God spoke all these words:
#1: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
“You shall have no other gods before me.
#2: “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven
above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to
them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the
children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who
hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and
keep my commandments.
#3: “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold
anyone guiltless who misuses His name.
#4: “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do
all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall
not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant,
nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days the Lord
made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but He rested on
the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
#5: “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord
your God is giving you.”
#6: “You shall not murder.”
#7: “You shall not commit adultery.”
#8: “You shall not steal.”
#9: “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.”
#10: “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s
wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to
When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the
mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance and said
to Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us
or we will die.”
Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the
fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”
The people remained at a distance, while Moses approached the thick darkness
where God was.
