5:1 And Moses called all Israel, and said to them, Hear, O
Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears
this day, that ye may learn them, and keep, and do them.
5:2 The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.
5:3 The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with
us, [even] us, who [are] all of us here alive this day.
5:4 The LORD talked with you face to face on the mount, from the
midst of the fire,
5:5 (I stood between the LORD and you at that time, to show you
the word of the LORD: for ye were afraid by reason of the fire,
and went not up upon the mount;) saying,
5:6 I [am] the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of
Egypt, from the house of bondage.
5:7 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
5:8 Thou shalt not make for thee [any] graven image, [or] any
likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is]
on the earth beneath, or that [is] in the waters beneath the
5:9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for
I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of
the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth
[generation] of them that hate me,
5:10 And showing mercy to thousands of them that love me, and
keep my commandments.
5:11 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain:
for the LORD will not hold [him] guiltless that taketh his name
5:12 Keep the sabbath-day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God
hath commanded thee.
5:13 Six days thou shalt labor, and do all thy work:
5:14 But the seventh day [is] the sabbath of the LORD thy God:
[in it] thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy
daughter, nor thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy
ox, nor thy ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that
[is] within thy gates; that thy man-servant and thy
maid-servant may rest as well as thou.
5:15 And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt,
and [that] the LORD thy God brought thee out thence with a
mighty hand and by an out-stretched arm: therefore the LORD thy
God commanded thee to keep the sabbath-day.
5:16 Honor thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath
commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may
be well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth
5:17 Thou shalt not kill.
5:18 Neither shalt thou commit adultery.
5:19 Neither shalt thou steal.
5:20 Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbor.
5:21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbor's wife, neither
shalt thou covet thy neighbor's house, his field, or his
man-servant, or his maid-servant, his ox, or his ass, or any
[thing] that [is] thy neighbor's.
5:22 These words the LORD spoke to all your assembly on the
mount from the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the
thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And
he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them to me.
5:23 And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice from the midst
of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye
came near to me, [even] all the heads of your tribes, and your
5:24 And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shown us his
glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice from the
midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk
with man, and he liveth.
5:25 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will
consume us: if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any more,
then we shall die.
5:26 For who [is there of] all flesh that hath heard the voice
of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we
[have], and lived?
5:27 Go thou near, and hear all that the LORD our God shall say;
and speak thou to us all that the LORD our God shall speak to
thee; and we will hear [it], and do [it].
5:28 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spoke
to me; and the LORD said to me, I have heard the voice of the
words of this people, which they have spoke to thee: they have
well said all that they have spoken.
5:29 O that there were such a heart in them, that they would
fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be
well with them, and with their children for ever!
5:30 Go, say to them, Return to your tents again.
5:31 But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak to
thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments,
which thou shalt teach them, that they may do [them] in the
land which I give them to possess it.
5:32 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath
commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to
5:33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath
commanded you, that ye may live, and [that it may be] well with
you, and [that] ye may prolong [your] days in the land which ye
