The Ten Commandments
(Deuteronomy 5.1-21)
1And God spake all these words, saying,
2I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 # Exod 34.17; Lev 19.4; 26.1; Deut 4.15-18; 27.15. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5#Exod 34.6,7; Num 14.18; Deut 7.9,10. thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 # Lev 19.12. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 # Exod 16.23-30; 31.12-14. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9#Exod 23.12; 31.15; 34.21; 35.2; Lev 23.3. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: 10but the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11#Gen 2.1-3; Exod 31.17. for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12 # Deut 27.16; Matt 15.4; 19.19; Mark 7.10; 10.19; Luke 18.20; Eph 6.2; Eph 6.3. Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
13 # Gen 9.6; Lev 24.17; Matt 5.21; 19.18; Mark 10.19; Luke 18.20; Rom 13.9; Jas 2.11. Thou shalt not kill.
14 # Lev 20.10; Matt 5.27; 19.18; Mark 10.19; Luke 18.20; Rom 13.9; Jas 2.11. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 # Lev 19.11; Matt 19.18; Mark 10.19; Luke 18.20; Rom 13.9. Thou shalt not steal.
16 # Exod 23.1; Matt 19.18; Mark 10.19; Luke 18.20. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
17 # Rom 7.7; 13.9. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's.
The People's Fear
(Deuteronomy 5.22-33)
18 # Heb 12.18,19. And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. 19And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. 20And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.
21And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was. 22And the Lord said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven. 23Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold. 24An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee. 25#Deut 27.5-7; Josh 8.31. And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it. 26Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon.
