The Ten Commandments

1And God spoke all these words, saying, 2I am the LORD your God, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3You shall have no other gods before me. 4You shall not make to you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6And showing mercy to thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. 7You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that takes his name in vain. 8Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9Six days shall you labor, and do all your work: 10But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD your God: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates: 11For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: why the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. 12Honor your father and your mother: that your days may be long on the land which the LORD your God gives you. 13You shall not kill. 14You shall not commit adultery. 15You shall not steal. 16You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. 17You shall not covet your neighbor's house, you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is your neighbor's.
