The Ten Commandments – Deuteronomy 5

And 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. Deuteronomy 5:1 

Deuteronomy 5:2 The LORD our God made a covenant with us  in Horeb. 

Deuteronomy 5:3 The LORD made not this covenant with our  fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive  this day. 

Deuteronomy 5:4 The LORD talked with you face to face in  the mount out of the midst of the fire, 

Deuteronomy 5:5 (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,  

Deuteronomy 5:6 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out  of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. 

Deuteronomy 5:7  Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 

Deuteronomy 5:8 Thou  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:   

Deuteronomy 5:9 Thou 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, 

Deuteronomy 5:10 And  shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and  keep my commandments. 

Deuteronomy 5:11 Thou 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. 

Deuteronomy 5:12  Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God  hath commanded thee. 

Deuteronomy 5:13 Six days thou shalt labour,  and do all thy work: 

Deuteronomy 5:14 But 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. 

Deuteronomy 5:15 And 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.  

Deuteronomy 5:16 Honour 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. 

Deuteronomy 5:17 Thou shalt  not kill. 

Deuteronomy 5:18 Neither shalt thou commit adultery. 

Deuteronomy 5:19  Neither shalt thou steal. 

Deuteronomy 5:20 Neither shalt thou bear false  witness against thy neighbour. 

Deuteronomy 5:21 Neither 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.  

Deuteronomy 5:22 These 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. 

Deuteronomy 5:23 And 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;  

Deuteronomy 5:24 And 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. 

Deuteronomy 5:25 Now  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. 

Deuteronomy 5:26 For 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, and lived? 

Deuteronomy 5:27  Go 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 do it. 

Deuteronomy 5:28  And 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. 

Deuteronomy 5:29 O 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! 

Deuteronomy 5:30 Go say to them, Get you into your  tents again. 

Deuteronomy 5:31 But 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. 

Deuteronomy 5:32 Ye 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. 

Deuteronomy 5:33 Ye 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.
