1
Then God spake all these wordes, saying,
2
I am the Lorde thy God, which haue brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3
Thou shalt haue none other Gods before me.
4
Thou shalt make thee no grauen image, neither any similitude of things that are in heauen aboue, neither that are in the earth beneath, nor that are in the waters vnder the earth.
5
Thou shalt not bowe downe to them, neither serue them: for I am the Lord thy God, a ielous God, visiting the iniquitie of the fathers vpon the children, vpon the third generation and vpon the fourth of them that hate me:
6
And shewing mercie vnto thousandes to them that loue me, & keepe my commandemets.
7
Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lorde thy God in vaine: for the Lorde will not hold him guiltles that taketh his Name in vayne.
8
Remember the Sabbath day, to keepe it holy.
9
Sixe dayes shalt thou labour, and doe all thy worke,
10
But the seuenth day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any worke, thou, nor thy sonne, nor thy daughter, thy man seruant, nor thy mayde, nor thy beast, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates.
11
For in sixe dayes the Lord made the heauen and the earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seuenth day: therefore the Lorde blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12
Honour thy father and thy mother, that thy dayes may be prolonged vpon the land, which the Lord thy God giueth thee.
13
Thou shalt not kill.
14
Thou shalt not commit adulterie.
15
Thou shalt not steale.
16
Thou shalt not beare false witnes against thy neighbour.
17
Thou shalt not couet thy neighbours house, neither shalt thou couet thy neighbours wife, nor his man seruant, nor his mayde, nor his oxe, nor his asse, neyther any thing that is thy neighbours.
18
And all the people sawe the thunders, and the lightnings, & the sound of the trumpet, and the mountaine smoking & when the people saw it they fled and stoode afare off,
19
And sayde vnto Moses, Talke thou with vs, and we will heare: but let not God talke with vs, lest we die.
20
Then Moses sayde vnto the people, Feare not: for God is come to proue you, & that his feare may be before you, that ye sinne not.
21
So the people stoode afarre off, but Moses drew neere vnto the darkenes where God was.
22
And the Lorde sayde vnto Moses, Thus thou shalt say vnto the children of Israel, Ye haue seene that I haue talked with you from heauen.
23
Ye shall not make therefore with me gods of siluer, nor gods of golde: you shall make you none.
24
An altar of earth thou shalt make vnto me, and thereon shalt offer thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheepe, and thine oxen: in all places, where I shall put the remembrance of my Name, I will come vnto thee, and blesse thee.
25
But if thou wilt make mee an altar of stone, thou shalt not buylde it of hewen stones: for if thou lift vp thy toole vpon them, thou hast polluted them.
26
Neither shalt thou goe vp by steppes vnto mine altar, that thy filthines be not discouered thereon.
