Exodus 20

ISV(i) 1 Then God spoke all these words: 2 ({ ΰ} - [Alef.]) "I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 3 "You shall have no other gods besides me. 4 ({ α} - [Bet.]) "You shall not make for yourselves an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above, or on earth below, or in the water under the earth. 5 You shall not bow down to them in worship or serve them; because I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the iniquity of the parents, to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me, 6 but showing gracious love to thousands who love me and keep my commandments. 7 ({ β} - [Gimmel.]) "You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, because the LORD will not leave the one who misuses his name unpunished. 8 ({ γ} - [Daleth.]) "Remember to keep the Sabbath day holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. And you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male or female servants, nor your livestock, nor the alien who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and all that is in them, and he rested on the seventh day. Therefore, the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. 12 ({ δ} - [He.]) "Honor your father and your mother so that you may live long in the land which the LORD your God is giving you. 13 ({ ε} - [Vav.]) "You shall not murder. 14 ({ ζ} - [Zayin.]) "You shall not commit adultery. 15 ({ η} - [Cheth.]) "You shall not steal. 16 ({ θ} - [Teth.]) "You shall not testify falsely against your neighbor. 17 ({ ι} - [Yod.]) "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male or female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." 18 All the people experienced the thunder and lightning, the sound of the ram's horn, and the smoking mountain. And as the people experienced it, they trembled and stood at a distance. 19 They said to Moses, "You speak to us and we will listen, but don't let God speak with us, or we may die." 20 Moses said to the people, "Don't be afraid, for God has come to test you, so that you may fear him in order that you don't sin." 21 Then the people stood at a distance, and Moses approached the thick cloud where God was. 22 The LORD said to Moses, "This is what you shall say to the Israelites, 'You have seen for yourselves that I spoke to you from heaven. 23 You shall not make gods of silver alongside me, nor shall you make for yourselves gods of gold. 24 'You shall make an altar of earth for me, and you shall sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and peace offerings, your sheep, and your cattle. Everywhere I cause my name to be remembered, I'll come to you and bless you. 25 If you make an altar of stone for me, you must not build it of cut stones, because if you strike it with your chisel, you will profane it. 26 You shall not ascend to my altar on steps, so that your nakedness may not be exposed on it.'
