Deuteronomy 5:1-21

The Ten Commandments Repeated

1 Then Moses summoned all Israel and said to them: "Hear, O Israel, the statutes and the ordinances which I am speaking today in your hearing, that you may learn them and observe them carefully.
2 "The LORD our God made 1a covenant with us at Horeb.
3 "2The LORD did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, with all those of us alive here today.
4 "The LORD spoke to you 3face to face at the mountain 4from the midst of the fire,
5 while 5I was standing between the LORD and you at that time, to declare to you the word of the LORD; 6for you were afraid because * of the fire and did not go up the mountain. He said,
6 '7I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
7 '8You shall have no other gods before Me.
8 '9You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above * or on the earth beneath * or in the water under the earth.
9 'You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, 10visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, and on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,
10 but 11showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
11 '12You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.
12 '13Observe the sabbath day to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you.
13 'Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
14 but 14the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter or your male servant or your female servant or your ox or your donkey or any of your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you, so that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you.
15 '15You shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the LORD your God brought you out of there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore * the LORD your God commanded you to observe the sabbath day.
16 '16Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, 17that your days may be prolonged and that it may go well with you on the land which the LORD your God gives you.
17 '18You shall not murder.
18 '19You shall not commit adultery.
19 '20You shall not steal.
20 '21You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
21 '22You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, and you shall not desire your neighbor's house, his field or his male servant or his female servant, his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.'
