I. I am the Lord your God, Who
delivered you from the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery.
II. You shall not recognize the gods of others
before My prsence. You
shall not make yourself a carved image nor any likeness of that
which is in the heavens above, or of that which is on the earth
below, or of that which in the water beneath the earth. You shall
not prostrate yourself to them nor shell worship them; for I am
the Lord your God - a jealous God, remembering the sins
of fathers upon children, to the third and fourth generations
of My enemies, but showing kindness for thousands [of generations]
to those who love Me and who keep My commandments.
III. You shall
not take the name of the Lord, your God, in a vain oath;
for the Lord will not absolve anyone who takes His Name
in a vain oath.
IV. Remember the Sabbath day to sanctify
it. Six days you are to work and accomplish all your tasks. But
the seventh day is Sabbath to the Lord, your God; you
may not do any work - you, your son, your daughter, your manservant,
your maidservant, your animal, and your convert within your gates
- for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the
sea and all that is in them, and He "rested" on the
seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath
day and sanctified it.
V. Honor your father
and your mother, so that your days will be lengthened upon the
land which the Lord, your God, gives you.

covet your fellow's house. You shall not covet your fellow's wife,
nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his bull, nor his
donkey, nor anything that is your fellow's."
