Exodus 20
A Faithful Version

1And God spoke all these words, saying,

2"I am the LORD your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3You shall have no other gods before Me.

4You shall not make for yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters under the earth. 5You shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, 6But showing mercy to thousands of those who love Me and keep My commandments.

7You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

8Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. 9Six days you shall labor and do all your work. 10But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter; your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your livestock, nor the stranger within your gates; 11For in six days the LORD made the heaven and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and sanctified it.

12Honor your father and your mother so that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God gives you.

13You shall not murder.

14You shall not commit adultery.

15You shall not steal.

16You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

17You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's."

18And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking. And when the people saw, they trembled and stood afar off. 19And they said to Moses, "You speak with us, and we will hear. But let not God speak with us, lest we die." 20And Moses said to the people, "Do not fear, for God has come to prove you, and so that His fear may be before your faces, so that you may not sin." 21And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was.

22And the LORD said to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 'You have seen that I have talked with you from the heavens. 23You shall not make with Me gods of silver, nor shall you make gods of gold for yourselves.

24You shall make an altar of earth to Me, and shall sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your oxen. In all places where I record My name I will come to you, and I will bless you. 25And if you will make Me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of cut stone; for if you lift up your tool upon it, you have defiled it. 26And you shall not go up by steps to My altar that your nakedness be not exposed upon it. ' "
