Exodus 20

Great(i) 1 And God spake all these wordes and sayde: 2 I am the Lorde thy God, which haue brought the out of the lande of Egipte, oute of the house of bondage. 3 Thou shalt haue none other goddes in my syght. 4 Thou shalt make the no grauen ymage, nether any symilitude that is in heauen aboue, ether in the erth benethe, or in the waters vnder the erth. 5 Thou shalt not worshyppe them, nether serue them: for I the Lorde thy God, am a gelouse God, and vyset the synne of the fathers vpon the chyldren vnto the thyrde and fourth generacyon of them that hate me: 6 and shewe mercye vnto thousandes in them that loue me and kepe my commaundementes. 7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lorde thy God in vayne, for the Lorde wyll not holde him gyltlesse that taketh his name in vayne. 8 Remembre the Sabbath daye that thou sanctifye it. 9 Sixe dayes shalt thou laboure and do all that thou hast to do: 10 but the seuenth daye is the Sabbath of the Lorde thy God, in it thou shalt do no maner of worke, thou and thy sonne, and thy daughter, thy man seruaunte and thy mayde seruaunte, thy catell and the straunger that is within thy gates. 11 For in syxe dayes the Lorde made heauen and erth, the see and all that in them is, and rested the seuenth daye: wherfore the Lorde blessed the Sabbath daye and halowed it. 12 Honour thy father & thy mother, that thy dayes maye be longe in the lande which the Lord thy God geueth the. 13 Thou shalt not kyll. 14 Thou shalt not breake wedlocke. 15 Thou shalt not steale. 16 Thou shalt not bere false witnesse agenst thy neyghboure. 17 Thou shalt not couet thy neyghbours house: nether shalt thou couet thy neyghbours wyfe, or hys man seruaunte, or hys mayde, or his oxe, or his asse, or whatsoeuer thy neyboure hath. 18 And all the people sawe the thunder and the lyghtenynge, and the noyse of the trompe, and the mountayne smokynge, And when the people sawe it, they remoued and stode a farre of, 19 and sayde vnto Moses: talke thou with vs, and we wyll heare: but let not God talke with vs, lest we dye. 20 And Moses sayde vnto the people: feare not, for God is come to proue you, and that his feare maye be in youre face, that ye synne not. 21 And the people stode a farre of, and Moses went into the thycke clowde where God was. 22 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moses: thus thou shalt saye vnto the chyldren of Israel. Ye haue sene that I haue talked with you from oute of heauen. 23 Ye shall not make therfore with me goddes of syluer neyther shall ye make you goddes of golde. 24 An alter of erth thou shalt make vnto me, and theron offer thy burntofferynges and thy peace offerynges, thy shepe and thyne oxen. In all places where I shall put the remembraunce of my name thyther I wyll come vnto the and blesse the. 25 And yf thou wylt make me an alter of stone, se thou make it not of hewen stone. Els yf thou lyfte vp thy tole vpon it, thou hast poluted it. 26 Neyther shalt thou goo vp by steppes vnto myne alter, that thy fylthynesse be not shewed there on.
