5 Revised Standard Version Passage

1And Moses summoned all Israel, and said to them, "Hear, O Israel, the statutes and the ordinances which I speak in your hearing this day, and you shall learn them and be careful to do them.The Ten Commandments. Dt.5.1-22 | Ex.20.1-17
2The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. 
3Not with our fathers did the LORD make this covenant, but with us, who are all of us here alive this day. 
4The LORD spoke with you face to face at the mountain, out of the midst of the fire, 
5while I stood between the LORD and you at that time, to declare to you the word of the LORD; for you were afraid because of the fire, and you did not go up into the mountain. He said: 
6"'I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 
7"'You shall have no other gods before me. 
8"'You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 
9you 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 fourth generation of those who hate me, 
10but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments. 
11"'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. 
12"'Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you. 
13Six days you shall labor, and do all your work; 
14but 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, or your manservant, or your maidservant, or your ox, or your ass, or any of your cattle, or the sojourner who is within your gates, that your manservant and your maidservant may rest as well as you. 
15You shall remember that you were a servant in the land of Egypt, and the LORD your God brought you out thence with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm; therefore the LORD your God commanded you to keep the sabbath day. 
16"'Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God commanded you; that your days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with you, in the land which the LORD your God gives you. 
17"'You shall not kill. 
18"'Neither shall you commit adultery. 
19"'Neither shall you steal. 
20"'Neither shall you bear false witness against your neighbor. 
21"'Neither shall you covet your neighbor's wife; and you shall not desire your neighbor's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or anything that is your neighbor's.' 
22"These words the LORD spoke to all your assembly at the mountain out of the midst of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darkness, with a loud voice; and he added no more. And he wrote them upon two tables of stone, and gave them to me.
