Exodus 20
GNV
20
1Then God spake all these wordes, saying, 2I am the Lord thy God, which haue brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3Thou shalt haue none other Gods before me. 4Thou 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. 5Thou 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: 6And shewing mercie vnto thousandes to them that loue me, and keepe my commandemets. 7Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vaine: for the Lord will not hold him guiltles that taketh his Name in vayne. 8Remember the Sabbath day, to keepe it holy. 9Sixe dayes shalt thou labour, and doe all thy worke, 10But 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. 11For 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 Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it. 12Honour thy father and thy mother, that thy dayes may be prolonged vpon the land, which the Lord thy God giueth thee. 13Thou shalt not kill. 14Thou shalt not commit adulterie. 15Thou shalt not steale. 16Thou shalt not beare false witnes against thy neighbour. 17Thou 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. 18And all the people sawe the thunders, and the lightnings, and the sound of the trumpet, and the mountaine smoking and when the people saw it they fled and stoode afare off, 19And sayde vnto Moses, Talke thou with vs, and we will heare: but let not God talke with vs, lest we die. 20Then Moses sayde vnto the people, Feare not: for God is come to proue you, and that his feare may be before you, that ye sinne not. 21So the people stoode afarre off, but Moses drew neere vnto the darkenes where God was. 22And the Lord sayde vnto Moses, Thus thou shalt say vnto the children of Israel, Ye haue seene that I haue talked with you from heauen. 23Ye shall not make therefore with me gods of siluer, nor gods of golde: you shall make you none. 24An 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. 25But 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. 26Neither shalt thou goe vp by steppes vnto mine altar, that thy filthines be not discouered thereon.
