8 "Remember 1the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 "2Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; in it 3you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who astays with you. 11 "4For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and made it holy. 12 "5Honor your father and your mother, that your 6days may be prolonged in the land which the LORD your God gives you. 13 "7You shall not murder. 14 "8You shall not commit adultery. 15 "9You shall not steal. 16 "10You shall not bear false witness against your 11neighbor. 17 "12You shall not covet your neighbor's house; 13you shall not covet your neighbor's wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor." 18 14All the people perceived the bthunder and the lightning flashes and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood at a distance. 19 15Then they said to Moses, "Speak cto us yourself and we will listen; but let not God speak dto us, or we will die." 20 Moses said to the people, "16Do not be afraid; for God has come in order 17to test you, and in order that 18the fear of Him may eremain with you, so that you may not sin." 21 So the people stood at a distance, while Moses approached 19the thick cloud where God was. 22 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, 'You yourselves have seen that 20I have spoken fto you from heaven. 23 '21You shall not make other gods besides Me; 22gods of silver or gods of gold, you shall not make for yourselves. 24 'You shall make 23an altar of earth for Me, and you shall sacrifice on it your 24burnt offerings and your 25peace offerings, 26your sheep and your oxen; in every place 27where I cause My name to be remembered, I will come to you and bless you. 25 'If you make an altar of stone for Me, 28you shall not build it of cut stones, for if you wield your tool on it, you will profane it. 26 'And you shall not go up by steps to My altar, so that 29your nakedness will not be exposed on it.'
