Exodus 20:1-17

NSB(i) 1 God spoke all these words: 2 »I am Jehovah your God, who brought you out of slavery in Egypt. 3 »Do not have any other god. 4 »Do not make your own carved idols or statues that represent any creature in the sky, on the earth, or in the water. 5 »Do not worship them or serve them. I, Jehovah your God, am a God demanding exclusive devotion. (I do not tolerate rivals.) I will not share your affection with any other god. I punish children for their parents’ sins to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me. 6 »I show mercy (loving kindness) to thousands of generations of those who love me and obey my commandments. 7 »Never use the name of Jehovah your God in a false and evil way. Jehovah will make sure that anyone who is false, evil, careless and vain with his name will be punished. 8 »Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy. 9 »You have six days to do all your work. 10 »The seventh day is a Sabbath dedicated to Jehovah your God. Do not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you. 11 »Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them in six days. He rested on 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 prolonged in the land Jehovah your God gives you. 13 »Do not murder. 14 »Do not commit adultery. 15 »Do not steal. 16 »Do not (lie) accuse anyone falsely. 17 »Do not covet (desire) another man’s house. Do not desire his wife, his slaves, his cattle, his donkeys, or anything else that he owns.
