The Ten Commandments Repeated
1 Then Moses summoned all Israel and said to them:
"Hear, O Israel, the statutes and the ordinances which I am speaking today in your hearing, F90 that you may learn them and observe them F91 carefully. 2 "The LORD our God made a R215 covenant with us at Horeb. 3 "The R216 LORD did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, with all those of us F92 alive here today. 4 "The LORD spoke to you face R217 to face at the mountain from R218 the midst of the fire, 5 while I R219 was standing between the LORD and you at that time, to declare to you the word of the LORD; for R220 you were afraid because of the fire and did not go up the mountain. He F93 said,
6 `I R221 am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. F94
7 `You R222 shall have no other gods before F95 Me.
8 `You R223 shall not make for yourself an F96 idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or F97 on the earth beneath or F97 in the water under the earth. 9 `You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting R224 the iniquity of the fathers on the children, and on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, 10 but showing R225 lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
11 `You R226 shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not leave F98 him unpunished who takes His name in vain.
12 `Observe R227 the sabbath day to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you. 13 `Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 14 but the R228 seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter or your male servant or your female servant or your ox or your donkey or any of your cattle or your sojourner who stays F99 with you, so that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you. 15 `You R229 shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the LORD your God brought you out of there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the LORD your God commanded you to observe the sabbath day.
16 `Honor R230 your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, that R231 your days may be prolonged and that it may go well with you on the land which the LORD your God gives you.
17 `You R232 shall not murder.
18 `You R233 shall not commit adultery.
19 `You R234 shall not steal.
20 `You R235 shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
21 `You R236 shall not covet your neighbor's wife, and you shall not desire your neighbor's house, his field or his male servant or his female servant, his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.'
22 "These words the LORD spoke to all your assembly at the mountain from the midst of the fire, of the cloud and of the thick gloom, with a great voice, and He added no more. He R237 wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me. 23 "And when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders. 24 "You said, `Behold, the LORD our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire; we have seen today that God speaks with man, yet he lives. 25 `Now R238 then why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any longer, then we will die. 26 `For who R239 is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? 27 `Go F100 near and hear all that the LORD our God says; then speak to us all that the LORD our God speaks to you, and we will hear and do it.'
28 "The LORD heard the voice of your words when you spoke to me, and R240 the LORD said to me, `I have heard the voice of the words of this people which they have spoken to you. They have done well in all that they have spoken. 29 `Oh R241 that they had such a heart in them, that they would fear Me and keep R242 all My commandments always, that it R243 may be well with them and with their sons forever! 30 `Go, say to them, "Return to your tents." 31 `But R244 as for you, stand here by Me, that I may speak to you all the commandments and the statutes and the judgments which you shall teach them, that they may observe them in the land which I give them to possess.' 32 "So you shall observe to do just as the LORD your God has commanded you; you R245 shall not turn aside to the right or to the left. 33 "You R246 shall walk in all the way which the LORD your God has commanded you, that R247 you may live and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you will possess.
