Work and get everything done during six days each week,
but the seventh day is a day of rest to honor the Lord your God. On that day no one may do any work: not you, your son or daughter, your male or female slaves, your animals, or the foreigners living in your cities.
The reason is that in six days the Lord made everything -- the sky, the earth, the sea, and everything in them. On the seventh day he rested. So the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
"Honor your father and your mother so that you will live a long time in the land that the Lord your God is going to give you.
"You must not murder anyone.
"You must not be guilty of adultery.
"You must not steal.
"You must not tell lies about your neighbor.
"You must not want to take your neighbor's house. You must not want his wife or his male or female slaves, or his ox or his donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."
When the people heard the thunder and the trumpet, and when they saw the lightning and the smoke rising from the mountain, they shook with fear and stood far away from the mountain.
Then they said to Moses, "Speak to us yourself, and we will listen. But don't let God speak to us, or we will die."
