(A)I am the Lord your God, (B)who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of [a]slavery.

(C)You shall have no other (D)gods [b]before Me.

(E)You shall not make for yourself [c]an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath, or in the water under the earth. (F)You shall not worship them nor serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a (G)jealous God, (H)inflicting the [d]punishment of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing [e]favor to (I)thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

(J)You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not [f]leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.

“Remember (K)the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
