The Ten Commandments
I.
 
 Thou shalt have no other Elôhîym before me.
II.
 
 Thou shalt not make to thyself an idol, nor likeness of anything, whatever things are in theheaven above, and whatever are in the earth beneath, and whatever are in the waters underthe earth. Thou shalt not bow down to them, nor serve them; for I am Yahweh thy Elôhîym,a jealous Elôhîym, recompensing the sins of the fathers upon the children, to the third andfourth generation to them that hate me, and bestowing mercy on them that love me tothousands of them, and on them that keep my commandments.
III.
 
 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord thy God will notacquit him that takes his name in vain.
IV.
 
Remember the sabbath day to keep it holy. Six days thou shalt labour, and shalt perform allthy work. But on the seventh day is the sabbath of Yahweh thy Elôhîym; on it thou shalt dono work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy servant nor thy maidservant, thine ox northine ass, nor any cattle of thine, nor the stranger that sojourns with thee. For in six days theLord made the heaven and the earth, and the sea and all things in them, and rested on theseventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the seventhday, and hallowed it.
V.
 
Honour thy father and thy mother, that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest livelong on the good land, which Yahweh thy Elôhîym gives to thee.
VI.
 
 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
VII.
 
 Thou shalt not steal.
VIII.
 
 Thou shalt not kill.
IX.
 
 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
X.
 
 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife; thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house; norhis field, nor his servant, nor his maid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any of his cattle, nor whatever belongs to thy neighbour.
