Exodus 20

MLV(i) 1 And God spoke all these words, saying,
2 I am Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 You will have no other gods before me.
4 You will not make to you a graven image, nor any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 You will not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them, because I, Jehovah your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
7 You will not take the name of Jehovah your God in vain, because Jehovah will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you will labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Jehovah your God. You will not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your man-servant, nor your maid-servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates, 11 for in six days Jehovah made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them and rested the seventh day. Therefore Jehovah blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. 12 Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which Jehovah your God gives you.
13 You will not murder.
14 You will not commit adultery.
15 You will not steal.
16 You will not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17 You will not desire your neighbor's house. You will not desire your neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.
18 And all the people perceived the thunderings and the lightnings and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking. And when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off.
19 And they said to Moses, Speak with us and we will hear, but do not let God speak with us, lest we die. 20 And Moses said to the people, Do not fear, because God has come to prove you* and that his fear may be before you*, that you* not sin. 21 And the people stood afar off and Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was.
22 And Jehovah said to Moses, Thus you will say to the sons of Israel, You* yourselves have seen that I have talked with you* from heaven. 23 You* will not make other gods with me; gods of silver, or gods of gold, you* will not make to you*.
24 An altar of earth you will make to me and will sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your oxen. In every place where I record my name I will come to you and I will bless you.
25 And if you make to me an altar of stone, you will not build it of hewn stones, because if you lift up your tool upon it, you have polluted it.
26 Neither will you go up by steps to my altar, that your nakedness is not uncovered on it.
