TEN COMMANDMENTS - THE DECALOGUE

עשרת הדיברות

" 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.
VI . You shall not murder.
VII. You shall not commit adultery.
VIII. You shall not steal.
IX
. You shall not bear false witness against your fellow.
X. You shall not 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."
