1And Moses called all Israel,
and said unto them, Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that ye may learn them,
and keep, and do them.
2The LORD our God made
a covenant with us in Horeb.
3The LORD made
not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day.
4The LORD talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire,
5(I stood between the LORD and you at that
time, to shew you the word of the LORD: for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying,
6I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee
out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
shalt have none other gods before me.
shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath,
or that is in the waters beneath the earth:
shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,
10And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
11Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD
thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
12Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.
13Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy
14But the seventh day is the sabbath
of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant,
nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy
maidservant may rest as well as thou.
remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty
hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.
16Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that
thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
17Thou shalt not kill.
18Neither shalt thou commit adultery.
shalt thou steal.
20Neither shalt thou bear
false witness against thy neighbour.
shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his
maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's.
22These words the LORD spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the
cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and
delivered them unto me.
23And it came to pass,
when ye heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near unto me,
even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders;
ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst
of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.
25Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of the
LORD our God any more, then we shall die.
who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have,
27Go thou near, and hear all that
the LORD our God shall say: and speak thou unto us all that the LORD our God shall speak unto thee; and we will hear it, and
28And the LORD heard the voice of your
words, when ye spake unto me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have
spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken.
29O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always,
that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
30Go say to them, Get you into your tents again.
31But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the
statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.
32Ye shall observe to do therefore as the
LORD your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.
33Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that
ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess
