Exodus 20
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And God said all these words,

2“I AM LORD JEHOVAH your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt from the house of bondage.

3You shall not have other gods outside of me.

4You shall not make for you any image or any form that is in Heaven from above or what is in the earth from beneath or what is in the water beneath the Earth: 5You shall not bow to them and you shall not serve them because I AM LORD JEHOVAH your God, a jealous God; he pays the love debts of fathers for the children unto three and unto four generations for those hating me; 6And I produce grace to thousands of generations of My friends and those keeping my commands.

7You shall not swear in the Name of LORD JEHOVAH your God with a lie because LORD JEHOVAH does not declare him innocent who swears in his Name with a lie.

8Remember the day of the Sabbath for its holiness. 9Six days you shall serve and you shall do all your work: 10And the seventh day is the Sabbath to LORD JEHOVAH your God; you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter or your Servant or your Maidservant or your beast or your settler who is in your town: 11Because for six days LORD JEHOVAH made Heaven and Earth and the seas and everything that is in them, and he was refreshed in the seventh day; because of this, LORD JEHOVAH blessed the seventh day and hallowed it.

12Honor your father and your mother that your days will increase in the land that LORD JEHOVAH your God gives to you.

13You shall not murder.

14You shall not commit adultery.

15You shall not steal.

16You shall not testify a false testimony against your neighbor.

17You shall not lust for the house of your neighbor; you shall not lust for the wife of your neighbor or his Servant or his Maid Servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that is your neighbor’s.

18And all the people saw the voices and lamps lightnings and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking, and the people saw and they were afraid and they stood at a distance. 19And they said to Moshe, “You speak with us and we will hear and do not let God speak with us, lest we die.” 20And Moshe said to the people, “You shall not be afraid, because God has come to test you and so that his awe may be before your faces and that you will not sin.” 21And the people stood at a distance and Moshe came to the thick darkness of the place of God.

22And LORD JEHOVAH said to Moshe: “In this way speak to those of the house of Israel: “You have seen that I have spoken with you from Heaven. 23You shall not make for yourselves gods of gold with me, neither gods of silver shall you make for yourselves.

24An altar of earth you shall make to me and you will offer upon it your burnt offerings and your offerings and your sheep and your oxen; in every place that you will commemorate My Name I shall come to you and I shall bless you. 25And if you make to me an altar of stone, you shall not build it with cut stone because you have lifted up iron upon it and you have polluted it. 26And you shall not go up by stairs to my altar so that your nakedness will not be revealed upon it.
