1 Then GodA spokeB all these words:C
2 I am the LordD your God, who brought you out of the landE of Egypt,F
out of the houseG of slavery;H 3 you shall have no other godsI before me.J
4 You shall not makeK for yourself an idol,L whether in the formM of anything that is in heavenN above,O
or that is on the earthP beneath,Q or that is in the water underR the earth.
5 You shall not bow downS to them or worshipT them; for I the Lord your GodU am a jealousV God,W
punishingX childrenY for the iniquityZ of parents,AA to the third and the fourth generation of those who rejectBB me,
6 but showingCC steadfast loveDD to the thousandth generation of those who loveEE me and keepFF my commandments.GG
7 You shall not makeHH wrongfulII use of the nameJJ of the Lord your God,KK for the Lord will not acquitLL anyone who misusesMM his name.
8 RememberNN the sabbathOO day, and keep it holy.PP
9 Six days you shall laborQQ and doRR all your work.SS
10 But the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God;TT you shall not do any work—you, your sonUU or your daughter,VV
your maleWW or female slave,XX your livestock,YY or the alien residentZZ in your towns.AAA
11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea,BBB and all that is in them, but restedCCC the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessedDDD the sabbath day and consecratedEEE it.
12 HonorFFF your father and your mother, so that your days may be longGGG in the landHHH that the Lord your GodIII is giving you.
13 You shall not murder.JJJ
14 You shall not commit adultery.KKK
15 You shall not steal.LLL
16 You shall not bearMMM falseNNN witnessOOO against your neighbor.PPP
17 You shall not covetQQQ your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife,RRR or male or female slave, or ox,SSS or donkey,TTT or anything that belongs to your neighbor.
