Exodus 20. The 10 Commandments

Exodus 20:1

And Elohim spoke all these Words, saying,

I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of slavery.

Exodus 20:3

You have no other mighty ones against My face.

Exodus 20:4

You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth,

Exodus 20:5

you do not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, יהוה your Elohim am a jealous Ěl, visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,

Exodus 20:6

but showing loving-commitment to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.

Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart.

Exodus 20:9

Six days you labour, and shall do all your work,

Exodus 20:11

For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore יהוה blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart.
