The Ten Commandments
Deuteronomy 5 New King James Version of the Bible
1 And Moses called all Israel, and said to them: “Hear, O Israel, the statutes and
judgments which I speak in your hearing today, that you may learn them and be careful
to observe them.Ten Commandments
2 The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.
3 The LORD did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, those who are
here today, all of us who are alive.
4 The LORD talked with you face to face on the
mountain from the midst of the fire.
5 I stood between the LORD and you at that time,
to declare to you the word of the LORD; for you were afraid because of the fire, and
you did not go up the mountain. He said:
6 "I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the
house of bondage.
7 You shall have no other gods before Me.
8 You shall not make for yourself a carved image; any likeness of anything
that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water
under the earth;
9 you shall not bow 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 to the
third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
10 but showing mercy to thousands,
to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
11 You 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.
12 Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded
13 Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
14 but the seventh day is the
Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your
daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your ox, nor your
donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates, that your
male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you.
15 And remember that you
were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the LORD your God brought you out from there by
a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the LORD your God commanded you to
keep the Sabbath day.
16 Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded
you, that your days may be long, and that it may be well with you in the land which
the LORD your God is giving you.
17 You shall not murder.
18 You shall not commit adultery.
19 You shall not steal.
20 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
21 You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife; and you shall not desire your
neighbor's house, his field, his male servant, his female servant, his ox, his donkey,
or anything that is your neighbor's."
22 These words the LORD spoke to all your assembly, in the mountain from the midst
of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darkness, with a loud voice; and He added no
more. And He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me.
Moses and the Ten Commandments
27 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.
28 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.
30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.
31 And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.
32 And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.
33 And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on his face.
34 But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded.
35 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a soul shall sin through ignorance
against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which ought not to
be done, and shall do against any of them:

If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shalt honor him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
