I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; you
shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that
is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or
worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents,
to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me, but showing steadfast love to the
thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments.
You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not acquit anyone
who misuses his name.
Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. For six days you shall labor and do all your work. But the
seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work—you, your son or your
daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns. For in six days
the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the
Lord blessed the sabbath day and consecrated it.
Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or male or female
slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.
