2 "I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
3 You shall have no other gods before Me. 3 "You shall have no other gods before me.
4 "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; 4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 5 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 fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,
6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. 6 but showing love to a thousand [ generations] of those who love me and keep my commandments.
