Exodus 20:1-17

The Ten Commandments

1 aAnd bGod spoke all these words, saying,

2 cI am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.

3 d“You shall have no other gods before
Or besides

4 f“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 gYou shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am ha jealous God, ivisiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, 6but showing steadfast love to thousands
Or  to the thousandth generation
of those who love me and keep my commandments.

7 k“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.

8 lRemember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 mSix days you shall labor, and do all your work, 10but the nseventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the osojourner who is within your gates. 11For pin six days the Lord made heaven and 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 qHonor your father and your mother, rthat your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

13 s“You shall not murder.
The Hebrew word also covers causing human death through carelessness or negligence

14 u“You shall not commit adultery.

15 v“You shall not steal.

16 w“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

17 x“You shall not covet yyour neighbor’s house; zyou shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.”
