EX 20:1 `And God speaketh all these words, saying,

EX 20:2 I `am' Jehovah thy God, who hath brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of a house of servants.

EX 20:3 `Thou hast no other Gods before Me.

EX 20:4 `Thou dost not make to thyself a graven image, or any likeness which `is' in the heavens above, or which `is' in the earth beneath, or which `is' in the waters under the earth.

EX 20:5 Thou dost not bow thyself to them, nor serve them: for I, Jehovah thy God, `am' a zealous God, charging iniquity of fathers on sons, on the third `generation', and on the fourth, of those hating Me,

EX 20:6 and doing kindness to thousands, of those loving Me and keeping My commands.

EX 20:7 `Thou dost not take up the name of Jehovah thy God for a vain thing, for Jehovah acquitteth not him who taketh up His name for a vain thing.

EX 20:8 `Remember the Sabbath-day to sanctify it;

EX 20:9 six days thou dost labour, and hast done all thy work,

EX 20:10 and the seventh day `is' a Sabbath to Jehovah thy God; thou dost not do any work, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man-servant, and thy handmaid, and thy cattle, and thy sojourner who is within thy gates, --

EX 20:11 for six days hath Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that `is' in them, and resteth in the seventh day; therefore hath Jehovah blessed the Sabbath-day, and doth sanctify it.

EX 20:12 `Honour thy father and thy mother, so that thy days are prolonged on the ground which Jehovah thy God is giving to thee.

EX 20:13 `Thou dost not murder.

EX 20:14 `Thou dost not commit adultery.

EX 20:15 `Thou dost not steal.

EX 20:16 `Thou dost not answer against thy neighbour a false testimony.

EX 20:17 `Thou dost not desire the house of thy neighbour, thou dost not desire the wife of thy neighbour, or his man-servant, or his handmaid, or his ox, or his ass, or anything which `is' thy neighbour's.'

EX 20:18 And all the people are seeing the voices, and the flames, and the sound of the trumpet, and the mount smoking; and the people see, and move, and stand afar off,

EX 20:19 and say unto Moses, `Speak thou with us, and we hear, and let not God speak with us, lest we die.'

EX 20:20 And Moses saith unto the people, `Fear not, for to try you hath God come, and in order that His fear may be before your faces -- that ye sin not.'

EX 20:21 And the people stand afar off, and Moses hath drawn nigh unto the thick darkness where God `is'.

EX 20:22 And Jehovah saith unto Moses, `Thus dost thou say unto the sons of Israel: Ye -- ye have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you;

EX 20:23 ye do not make with Me gods of silver, even gods of gold ye do not make to yourselves.

EX 20:24 `An altar of earth thou dost make for Me, and thou hast sacrificed on it thy burnt-offerings and thy peace-offerings, thy flock and thy herd; in every place where I cause My name to be remembered I come in unto thee, and have blessed thee.

EX 20:25 `And if an altar of stones thou dost make to Me, thou dost not build them of hewn work; when thy tool thou hast waved over it, then thou dost pollute it;

EX 20:26 neither dost thou go up by steps on Mine altar, that thy nakedness be not revealed upon it.
