Exodus 20:1-6 MSG

1 God spoke all these words:
2 I am God, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of a life of slavery.
3 No other gods, only me.
4 No carved gods of any size, shape, or form of anything whatever, whether of things that fly or walk or swim.
5 Don't bow down to them and don't serve them because I am God, your God, and I'm a most jealous God, punishing the children for any sins their parents pass on to them to the third, and yes, even to the fourth generation of those who hate me.
6 But I'm unswervingly loyal to the thousands who love me and keep my commandments.
