The Ten Commandments(A)

20 And God spoke (B)all these words, saying:

(E)“You shall have no other gods before Me.

(F)“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; (G)you shall not bow down to them nor [b]serve them. (H)For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, (I)visiting[c] the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but (J)showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
