You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers4 to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,5
but the seventh day11 is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant,12 nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor the alien within your gates, so that your manservant and maidservant may rest, as you do.13
Remember that you were slaves14 in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand15 and an outstretched arm.16 Therefore the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.
"You shall not covet your neighbor's wife. You shall not set your desire on your neighbor's house or land, his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."24
These are the commandments the LORD proclaimed in a loud voice to your whole assembly there on the mountain from out of the fire, the cloud and the deep darkness;25 and he added nothing more. Then he wrote them on two stone tablets26 and gave them to me.
