-------------Exodus 20:1-17-------------

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 besides Me.

4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any like-

ness of what is in heaven above or on 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 four

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 servant 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


17 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you

shall not covet your neighbor's wife or his male

servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that

belongs to your neighbor."
