Exodus 20:9-19 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
9 You are to labor six days and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. You must not do any work-you, your son or daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the foreigner who is within your gates. 11 For the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and everything in them in six days; then He rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and declared it holy. 12 Honor your father and your mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.a 13 Do not murder.b 14 Do not commit adultery.c 15 Do not steal. 16 Do not give false testimony against your neighbor.d 17 Do not covet your neighbor's house. Do not covet your neighbor's wife, his male or female slave, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.e f

The People's Reaction

18 All the people witnessedg the thunder and lightning, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain [surrounded by] smoke. When the people saw [it]h they trembled and stood at a distance. 19 "You speak to us, and we will listen," they said to Moses, "but don't let God speak to us, or we will die."
