Part Three

The Ten Commandments

I am the Lord your God,

who brought you out

of the land of Egypt,

out of the house of bondage.

You shall have no other gods before me.

You shall not make for yourself a

graven image,

or any likeness of anything that is in

heaven above, or that is in the earth

beneath, or that is in the water under the

earth; you shall not bow down to them

or serve them; for I the Lord

your God am a jealous God, visiting

the iniquity of the fathers upon the

children to the third and the fourth

generation of those who hate me, but

showing steadfast love to thousands

of those who love me and keep my

commandments.

You shall not take

the name of the Lord

your God in vain;

for the Lord will not hold him guiltless

who takes his name in vain.

Remember the sabbath day, to keep

it holy. Six days you shall labor,

and do all your work; but the seventh

day is a sabbath to the Lord your

God; in it you shall not do any work,

you, or your son, or your daughter,

your manservant, or your

maidservant or your cattle, or the

sojourner who is within your gates;

for in six days the Lord made heaven

and earth, the sea, and all that is in

them, and rested the seventh day;

therefore the Lord blessed the

sabbath day and hallowed it.

I am the Lord

your God,

who brought you

out

of the land of

Egypt,

out of the house

of bondage.

You shall have

no other gods

before me . . .

You shall not take

the name of the

Lord

your God in vain . . .

Observe the

sabbath day, to

keep it holy . . .

1. I am the Lord

your God:

you shall not have

strange gods before

me.

2. You shall not take

the name of the

Lord your God in

vain.

3. Remember to

keep holy the

Lord’s Day.
