Welcome to God's Ten Commandments

"I am the Lord your God, who rescued
you from slavery in Egypt.
Do not worship any other gods besides me.
Do not make idols of any kind, whether in
the shape of birds or animals or fish.
You must never worship or bow down
to them, for I, the Lord your God, am a
jealous God who will not share your
affection with any other god! I do not
leave unpunished the sins of those who
hate me, but I punish the children for
the sins of their parents to the
third and fourth generations.
But I lavish my love on those
who love me and obey my commands,
even for a thousand generations.
Do not misuse the name of the Lord
your God. The Lord will not let you
go unpunished if you misuse his name.
Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy,
as the Lord your God has commanded you.
Six days a week are set aprart for
your daily duties and regular work, but
the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated
to the Lord your God. On that day no one
in your household may do any kind of work.
This includes you, your sons and daughters,
your male and female servants, your oxen
and donkeys and other livestock, and any
foreigners living among you. All your
male and female servants must rest as you do.
Remember that you were once slaves in Egypt
and that the Lord your God brought you
out with amazing power and mighty deeds.
That is why the Lord your God has commanded
you to observe the Sabbath day.
Honor your father and mother, as the
Lord your God commanded you. Then you
will live a long, full life in the
land the Lord your God will give you.
Do not murder.
Do not commit adultery.
Do not steal.
Do not testify falsely against your neighbor.
Do not covet your neighbor's wife. Do
not covet your neighbor's house or land,
male or female servant, ox or donkey,
or anything else your neighbor owns."

Deuteronomy 5:6-21 NLT
