Deuteronomy 5
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Moshe called to all Israel and said to them: “Hear Israel, the laws and judgments that I speak before you today, that you shall learn them and keep them and do them. 2LORD JEHOVAH our God has covenanted with us a covenant in Khoreeb. 3It was not with our fathers that LORD JEHOVAH covenanted this covenant, but with us, we here today, and we are all alive. 4Face to face LORD JEHOVAH spoke with you in the mountain from within the fire. 5And I was standing between LORD JEHOVAH and you at that time to show you the words of LORD JEHOVAH your God when you were afraid before the fire and you did not go up the mountain, and he said:

6‘I AM LORD JEHOVAH your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

7There shall not be another god for you apart from me.

8You shall not make for yourselves any image or any form that is in the sky from above or that is in the earth from beneath or that is in the water beneath the land. 9You shall not worship them, neither shall you serve them, because I AM LORD JEHOVAH your God, the jealous God; he pays the debt of fathers for the children to three and to four generations to those hating me. 10And I perform grace to thousands of generations of my friends and to those keeping my commandments.

11Do not swear in the Name of LORD JEHOVAH your God with a lie, because LORD JEHOVAH does not justify him who swears in His Name with a lie.

12Keep the day of the Sabbath and hallow it as LORD JEHOVAH your God commanded you. 13Six days you shall labor and you shall do all your work. 14And the seventh day is the Sabbath to LORD JEHOVAH your God; you shall not do any work in it, you or your son, or your daughter, or your Servant, or your Maid, or your ox, or your donkey, or any of your beasts, or the settler that is in your town, so that your Servant and your Maid will be rested like you. 15And remember that you were a Servant in Egypt and LORD JEHOVAH your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an exalted arm; because of this, LORD JEHOVAH your God commanded you to keep the day of the Sabbath.

16Honor your father and your mother as LORD JEHOVAH your God commanded you, that your days may be many and it may be good for you in the good land that LORD JEHOVAH your God gives to you.

17You shall not murder.

18You shall not commit adultery.

19You shall not steal.

20You shall not testify a false testimony against your neighbor.

21Do not lust for the wife of your neighbor; do not lust for the house of your neighbor, neither his field, neither his vineyard, neither his Servant, neither his Handmaid, neither his ox, neither his donkey, neither anything that your neighbor has.’

22These words LORD JEHOVAH spoke with all of the assembly in the mountain from within the fire, in the cloud and in thick darkness and with a great voice without limit, and he wrote them on two tablets of stone and he gave them to me. 23And when you had heard the voice from within the darkness and the mountain was blazing in fire, all of you brought me the Leaders of your tribes and your Elders. 24And you said: ‘Behold, LORD JEHOVAH our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we hear His voice from within the fire; today we see that God speaks with a man and he lives. 25Therefore why should we die and this great fire consume us? If we go on again hearing the voice of LORD JEHOVAH our God, we die. 26For who is the son of flesh like us who hears the voice of the living God who speaks from within fire and lives? 27You go near and hear everything that LORD JEHOVAH our God says to you, and you tell us everything that LORD JEHOVAH our God says to you, and we will hear and we will do it.’

28And LORD JEHOVAH heard the voice of your answer as you spoke to me, and LORD JEHOVAH said to me: ‘I have heard the voice of this people and the response that they spoke to you; everything that they spoke is good. 29But, oh that they would have this heart: to be in awe before me and to keep all of my commands all of their days, that it would be well for them and for their children to eternity. 30Go and say to them: “Return you to your tents.” 31And you stand here before me and I shall tell you all of my commands and my laws and my judgments that you shall teach them and they shall perform in the land that I give them to inherit'. 32Keep and do as LORD JEHOVAH your God commanded you and do not turn away, not to the right, neither to the left. 33In all the way that LORD JEHOVAH your God commanded you, go, that you will live and it will be well for you, and you will multiply days in the land which you will inherit.”
