Exodus 20


20:1 And God spoke all these words, saying,
20:2 I [am] the LORD thy God, who have brought thee out of the
 land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
20:4 Thou shalt not make to thee 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:
20:5 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;
20:6 And showing mercy to thousands of them that love me, and
 keep my commandments.
20:7 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
 in vain.
20:8 Remember the sabbath-day to keep it holy.
20:9 Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work:
20:10 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, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy
 cattle, nor thy stranger that [is] within thy gates:
20:11 For [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea,
 and all that [is] in them, and rested the seventh day:
 wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath-day, and hallowed it.
20:12 Honor thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long
 upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
20:13 Thou shalt not kill.
20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
20:15 Thou shalt not steal.
20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not
 covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his
 maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that [is]
 thy neighbor's.
20:18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the
 lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain
 smoking: and when the people saw [it], they removed, and stood
 afar off.
20:19 And they said to Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will
 hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
20:20 And Moses said to the people, Fear not: for God is come to
 prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye
 sin not.
20:21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near to the
 thick darkness where God [was].
20:22 And the LORD said to Moses, Thus thou shalt say to the
 children of Israel; Ye have seen that I have talked with you
 from heaven.
20:23 Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye
 make to you gods of gold.
20:24 An altar of earth thou shalt make to me, and shalt
 sacrifice thereon thy burnt-offerings, and thy peace-offerings,
 thy sheep, and thy oxen: in all places where I record my name I
 will come to thee, and I will bless thee.
20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not
 build it of hewn stone: for if thou [shalt] lift up thy tool
 upon it, thou hast polluted it.
20:26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps to my altar, that thy
 nakedness be not discovered thereon.
