(A)The Lord our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. The Lord (B)did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, those who are here today, all of us who are alive. (C)The Lord talked with you face to face on the mountain from the midst of the fire. (D)I stood between the Lord and you at that time, to declare to you the word of the Lord; for (E)you were afraid because of the fire, and you did not go up the mountain. He said:

(F)‘I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of [a]bondage.

(G)‘You shall have no other gods [b]before Me.

(H)‘You shall not make for yourself a carved image—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; you shall not (I)bow[c] down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, [d]visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 10 (J)but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and [e]keep My commandments.

11 (K)‘You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him [f]guiltless who takes His name in vain.

12 (L)‘Observe the Sabbath day, to [g]keep it holy, as the Lord your God commanded you. 13 (M)Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 14 but the seventh day is the (N)Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates, that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you. 15 (O)And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there (P)by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.

16 (Q)‘Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, (R)that your days may be long, and that it may be well with (S)you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

17 (T)‘You shall not murder.

18 (U)‘You shall not commit adultery.

19 (V)‘You shall not steal.

20 (W)‘You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

21 (X)‘You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife; and you shall not desire your neighbor’s house, his field, his male servant, his female servant, his ox, his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.’

22 “These words the Lord spoke to all your assembly, in the mountain from the midst of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darkness, with a loud voice; and He added no more. And (Y)He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me.

The Lord our God made a covenant(A) with us at Horeb.(B) It was not with our ancestors[a] that the Lord made this covenant, but with us,(C) with all of us who are alive here today.(D) The Lord spoke(E) to you face to face(F) out of the fire(G) on the mountain. (At that time I stood between(H) the Lord and you to declare to you the word of the Lord, because you were afraid(I) of the fire and did not go up the mountain.) And he said:

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt,(J) out of the land of slavery.(K)

“You shall have no other gods before[b] me.

“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.(L) 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 parents(M) to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,(N) 10 but showing love to a thousand(O) generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.(P)

11 “You shall not misuse the name(Q) of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.(R)

12 “Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy,(S) as the Lord your God has commanded you. 13 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 14 but the seventh day(T) is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant,(U) nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns, so that your male and female servants may rest, as you do.(V) 15 Remember that you were slaves(W) in Egypt and that the Lord your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand(X) and an outstretched arm.(Y) Therefore the Lord your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.

16 “Honor your father(Z) and your mother,(AA) as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live long(AB) and that it may go well with you in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

17 “You shall not murder.(AC)

18 “You shall not commit adultery.(AD)

19 “You shall not steal.(AE)

20 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.(AF)

21 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. You shall not set your desire on your neighbor’s house or land, his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”(AG)

22 These are the commandments the Lord proclaimed in a loud voice to your whole assembly there on the mountain from out of the fire, the cloud and the deep darkness;(AH) and he added nothing more. Then he wrote them on two stone tablets(AI) and gave them to me.
