2 1"I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
3 2"You shall have no other gods beforea me.
4 3"You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or 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.
5 4You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am 5a jealous God, 6visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,
6 but showing steadfast love to thousandsb of those who love me and keep my commandments.
