Exodus 20

CLV(i) 1 Elohim spoke all these words, saying. 2 I am Yahweh your Elohim Who brought you forth from the land of Egypt, from the house of servants. 3 You shall not come to have other elohim in preference to Me. 4 You shall not make for yourself a carving nor any representation of that in the heavens above or that on the earth beneath, or that in the waters beneath the earth. 5 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, 6 yet doing kindness to thousands, to those loving Me and observing My instructions. 7 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. 8 You are to remember the sabbath day to hallow it. 9 Six days shall you serve and do all your work, 10 yet the seventh day is a sabbath to Yahweh your Elohim. You shall not do any work, you, your son or your daughter, your servant or your maidservant, your bull, your donkey or your beast, or your sojourner who is within your gates. 11 For in six days Yahweh dealt with the heavens and earth, the sea and all that is in them, and He stopped on the seventh day. Therefore, Yahweh blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it. 12 Glorify your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged on the ground which Yahweh your Elohim is giving to you. 13 You shall not murder. 14 You shall not commit adultery. 15 You shall not steal. 16 You shall not answer against your associate with false testimony. 17 You shall not covet the house of your associate. You shall not covet the wife of your associate, his field, his servant or his maidservant, his bull, his donkey or anything which is your associate's. 18 All the people were discerning the voices and the torches and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain asmoke. And the people saw and roved about and stood afar. 19 They said to Moses: Speak you with us that we may hear; yet Elohim must not speak with us lest we die. 20 Then Moses said to the people: Do not fear, for in order to probe you the One, Elohim has come, and in order that the fear of Him should come over your faces, that you may not sin. 21 Then the people stood afar, yet Moses, he came close to the murkiness where the One, Elohim was. 22 Yahweh said to Moses: Thus shall you say to the sons of Israel, You have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you. 23 You shall not make anything beside Me: no elohim of silver nor elohim of gold shall you make for yourselves. 24 An altar of ground soil shall you make for Me, and you will sacrifice on it your ascent offerings and your peace offerings, your flock and your herd. In every place where I shall record My name I shall come to you and will bless you. 25 And if you shall make an altar of stones for Me you shall not build it with them trimmed; in case you have swung your sword against it, then you have profaned it. 26 And you shall not ascent on My altar by stairs so that your nakedness be not exposed on it.
