Exodus 20:1-17

1And God spoke all these words:

2‘I am the  Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
3‘You shall have no other gods before
Or besides
me.
4‘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. 5You 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, 6but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
7‘You shall not misuse the name of the  Lord your God, for the  Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
8‘Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9Six days you shall labour and do all your work, 10but 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. 11For 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.
12‘Honour your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the  Lord your God is giving you.
13‘You shall not murder.
14‘You shall not commit adultery.
15‘You shall not steal.
16‘You shall not give false testimony against your neighbour.
17‘You shall not covet your neighbour’s house. You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbour.’
