The Ten Commandments

5:6 “I am the Lord your God, he who brought you from the land of Egypt, from the place of slavery. 5:7 You must not have any other gods5 besides me.6 5:8 You must not make for yourself an image7 of anything in heaven above, on earth below, or in the waters beneath.8 5:9 You must not worship or serve them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God. I punish9 the sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons for the sin of the fathers who reject10 me,11 5:10 but I show covenant faithfulness12 to the thousands13 who choose14 me and keep my commandments. 5:11 You must not make use of the name of the Lord your God for worthless purposes,15 for the Lord will not exonerate anyone who abuses his name that way.16 5:12 Be careful to observe17 the Sabbath day just as the Lord your God has commanded you. 5:13 You are to work and do all your tasks in six days, 5:14 but the seventh day is the Sabbath18 of the Lord your God. On that day you must not do any work, you, your son, your daughter, your male slave, your female slave, your ox, your donkey, any other animal, or the foreigner who lives with you,19 so that your male and female slaves, like yourself, may have rest. 5:15 Recall that you were slaves in the land of Egypt and that the Lord your God brought you out of there by strength and power.20 That is why the Lord your God has commanded you to observe21 the Sabbath day. 5:16 Honor22 your father and your mother just as the Lord your God has commanded you to do, so that your days may be extended and that it may go well with you in the land that he23 is about to give you. 5:17 You must not murder.24 5:18 You must not commit adultery. 5:19 You must not steal. 5:20 You must not offer false testimony against another.25 5:21 You must not desire26 another man’s27 wife, nor should you crave his28 house, his field, his male and female servants, his ox, his donkey, or anything else he owns.”29
