Deuteronomy 5

The Ten Commandments Repeated

1Then Moses summoned all Israel and said to them:

Hear, O Israel, the statutes and the ordinances which I am speaking today in your
Lit ears
hearing, that you may learn them and observe
Lit to do them
them carefully.
2“The  Lord our God made c  a covenant with us at Horeb. 3 d  “The  Lord did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, with all those of
Lit us ourselves
us alive here today.
4“The  Lord spoke to you f  face to face at the mountain g  from the midst of the fire, 5while h  I was standing between the  Lord and you at that time, to declare to you the word of the  Lord; i  for you were afraid because of the fire and did not go up the mountain.
Lit saying
He said,

6k  I am the  Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of
Lit slaves

7m  You shall have no other gods
Or besides
before Me.

8o  You shall not make for yourself
Or a graven image
an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above
Lit or what is
or on the earth beneath
Lit or what is
or in the water under the earth.
9You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the  Lord your God, am a jealous God, s  visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, and on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, 10but t  showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

11u  You shall not take the name of the  Lord your God in vain, for the  Lord will not
Or hold him guiltless
leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.

12w  Observe the sabbath day to keep it holy, as the  Lord your God commanded you. 13Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 14but x  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 or your male servant or your female servant or your ox or your donkey or any of your cattle or your sojourner who
Lit is in your gates
stays with you, so that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you.
15z  You shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the  Lord your God brought you out of there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the  Lord your God commanded you to observe the sabbath day.

16aa  Honor your father and your mother, as the  Lord your God has commanded you, ab  that your days may be prolonged and that it may go well with you on the land which the  Lord your God gives you.

17ac  You shall not murder.

18ad  You shall not commit adultery.

19ae  You shall not steal.

20af  You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

21ag  You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, and you shall not desire your neighbor’s house, his field or his male servant or his female servant, his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.’

Moses Interceded

22These words the  Lord spoke to all your assembly at the mountain from the midst of the fire, of the cloud and of the thick gloom, with a great voice, and He added no more. ah  He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me. 23And when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders. 24You said, ‘Behold, the  Lord our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire; we have seen today that God speaks with man, yet he lives. 25ai  Now then why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of the  Lord our God any longer, then we will die. 26‘For aj  who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? 27
Lit Go yourself
Go near and hear all that the  Lord our God says; then speak to us all that the  Lord our God speaks to you, and we will hear and do it.’

28“The  Lord heard the voice of your words when you spoke to me, al  and the  Lord said to me, ‘I have heard the voice of the words of this people which they have spoken to you. They have done well in all that they have spoken. 29am  Oh that they had such a heart in them, that they would fear Me and an  keep all My commandments always, that ao  it may be well with them and with their sons forever! 30Go, say to them, “Return to your tents.” 31ap  But as for you, stand here by Me, that I may speak to you all the commandments and the statutes and the judgments which you shall teach them, that they may observe them in the land which I give them to possess.’ 32So you shall observe to do just as the  Lord your God has commanded you; aq  you shall not turn aside to the right or to the left. 33 ar  You shall walk in all the way which the  Lord your God has commanded you, as  that you may live and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you will possess.
