The Decalogue.  Ex.20.1-17

1God spoke, and these were his words:

2I am the LORD your God who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

3You shall have no other god Or gods to set against me.

4You shall not make a carved image for yourself nor the likeness of anything in the heavens above, or on the earth below, or in the waters under the earth.

5You shall not bow down to them or worship Or or be led to worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous god. I punish the children for the sins of the fathers to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me. 6But I keep faith with thousands, with with ... with: or for a thousand generations with ... those who love me and keep my commandments.

7You shall not make wrong use of the name of the LORD your God; the LORD will not leave unpunished the man who misuses his name.

8Remember to keep the sabbath day holy. 9You have six days to labour and do all your work. 10But the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; that day you shall not do any work, you, your son or your daughter, your slave or your slave-girl, your cattle or the alien within your gates; 11for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and on the seventh day he rested. Therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and declared it holy.

12Honour your father and your mother, that you may live long in the land which the LORD your God is giving you.

13You shall not commit murder.

14You shall not commit adultery.

15You shall not steal.

16You shall not give false evidence against your neighbour.

17You shall not covet your neighbour's house; you shall not covet your neighbour's wife, his slave, his slave-girl, his ox, his ass, or anything that belongs to him.

The people's fear.  Ex.20.18-21 - Dt.5.22-33

18When all the people saw how it thundered and the lightning flashed, when they heard the trumpet sound and saw the mountain smoking, they trembled and stood at a distance. 19'Speak to us yourself,' they said to Moses, 'and we will listen; but if God speaks to us we shall die.' 20Moses answered, 'Do not be afraid. God has come only to test you, so that the fear of him may remain with you and keep you from sin.' 21So the people stood at a distance, while Moses approached the dark cloud where God was.

Laws about Altars.  Ex.20.22-26

22THE LORD SAID TO MOSES, Say this to the Israelites: You know now that I have spoken to you from heaven. 23You shall not make gods of silver to be worshipped as well as me, nor shall you make yourselves gods of gold. 24You shall make an altar of earth for me, and you shall sacrifice on it both your whole-offerings and your shared-offerings, your sheep and your cattle. Wherever I cause my name to be invoked, I will come to you and bless you. 25If you make an altar of stones for me, you must not build it of hewn stones, for if you use a chisel on it, you will profane it. 26You must not mount up to my altar by steps, in case your private parts be exposed on it.
