Deuteronomy 5

CLV(i) 1 Moses called to all Israel and said to them:Hear, Israel, the statutes and the judgments that I am speaking in your ears today, that you learn them and observe to obey them. 2 Yahweh our Elohim, He contracted a covenant with us at Horeb. 3 Not with our fathers did Yahweh contract this covenant, but with us, us, these here today, all of us who are alive. 4 Face to face Yahweh spoke with you at the mount from the midst of the fire 5 (I was standing between Yahweh and you at that time, to tell you the word of Yahweh, for you were fearful because of the presence of the fire and did not ascend onto the mountain), saying. 6 I, Yahweh, am your Elohim Who brought you forth from the country of Egypt, from the house of servants. 7 You shall not come to have other elohim in preference to Me. 8 You shall not make for yourself a carving nor any physical representation of that in the heavens above or that on the earth beneath or that in the waters beneath the earth. 9 You shall not bow yourself down to them, nor be made to serve them, for I, Yahweh your Elohim, am a jealous El, visiting the depravity of the fathers on the sons, on the third and on the fourth generation, to those hating Me, 10 yet doing kindness to thousands, to those loving Me and observing My instructions. 11 You shall not take up the name of Yahweh your Elohim for futility, for Yahweh shall not hold innocent him who takes up His name for futility. 12 You are to observe the sabbath day to hallow it, just as Yahweh your Elohim had instructed you. 13 Six days shall you serve and do all your work, 14 yet the seventh day is a sabbath to Yahweh your Elohim. You shall not do any work on it; you, your son or your daughter, your servant or your maidservant, your bull, your donkey or any domestic beast of yours, or your sojourner who is within your gates, that your servant and your maidservant may rest as you do. 15 Remember that you had become a servant in the country of Egypt, and Yahweh your Elohim brought you forth from there with a steadfast hand and with an outstretched arm. Therefore Yahweh your Elohim instructed you to observe the sabbath day. 16 Glorify your father and your mother, just as Yahweh your Elohim had instructed you, that your days may be prolonged and that it may be well with you on the ground which Yahweh your Elohim is giving to you. 17 You shall not murder. 18 You shall not commit adultery. 19 You shall not steal. 20 You shall not answer against your associate with false testimony. 21 You shall not covet the wife of your associate. You shall not lust after the house of your associate, his field, his servant or his maidservant, his bull, his donkey or anything which is your associate's. 22 These were the words Yahweh spoke to your whole assembly at the mountain, in a loud voice from the midst of the fire, the darkness, the cloud and the murkiness; and He added no more. He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me. 23 Then it came to be, as you heard the voice from the midst of the fire and the darkness, when the mountain was consuming with fire, that you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders, 24 and you said:Behold, Yahweh our Elohim has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we heard His voice from the midst of the fire. This day we have seen that Elohim speaks with the human and he still lives. 25 Yet now, why should we die? For this great fire shall devour us. If we are continuing to hear the voice of Yahweh our Elohim any further, than we will die. 26 For who is there of all flesh that has heard the voice of the living Elohim speaking from the midst of the fire as we have, and he still lives? 27 As for you, go near and hear all that Yahweh our Elohim says; then you shall speak to us all that Yahweh our Elohim shall speak to you, and we will hearken and obey. 28 Yahweh heard the sound of your words when you spoke to me, and Yahweh said to me:I have heard the sound of the words of this people that they have spoken to you. They have done well in all they have spoken. 29 O that their heart might become this way with them:to fear Me and to observe all My instructions all the days, that it might be well with them and with their sons for the eon. 30 Go, say to them:You return to your tents!" 31 As for you, stay here with Me, and let Me speak to you about all the instruction and the statutes and the judgments that you shall teach them, so that they may obey them in the land that I am giving to them to tenant it. 32 You will observe to do just as Yahweh your Elohim had enjoined on you. You shall not withdraw to the right or to the left. 33 In all the ways which Yahweh your Elohim had enjoined on you, you should walk that you may live, and it may be well with you, and you may prolong your days in the land that you shall tenant.
