Exodus 20:1-17

And God spake all these wordes, and said. I am the Lord thy GOD, whiche haue brought thee out of the lande of Egypt, out of ye house of bondage.
  1. Thou shalt haue none other Gods in my sight.
  2. Thou shalt make thee no grauen image, neyther any similitude that is in heauen aboue, eyther in the earth beneath, or in the waters vnder the earth. Thou shalt not bowe downe to them, neyther serue them: for I the Lord thy God, am a gelous God, and visite the sinne of the fathers vpon the chyldren, vnto the thirde and fourth generation of them that hate me: And shewe mercy vnto thousandes in them that loue me, and kepe my commaundementes.
  3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lorde thy God in vayne: for the Lorde will not holde him giltlesse that taketh his name in vayne.
  4. Remember the sabboth day that thou sanctifie it. Sixe dayes shalt thou labour, and do all that thou hast to do. But the seuenth day is the sabboth of the Lorde thy God: in it thou shalt do no maner of worke, thou and thy sonne, and thy daughter, thy man seruaunt, and thy mayde seruaunt, thy cattel, and the straunger that is within thy gates.

    For in sixe dayes the Lorde made heauen and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seuenth day: wherfore the Lorde blessed the seuenth day, and halowed it.
  5. Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy dayes may be long in the lande whiche the Lorde thy God geueth thee.
  6. Thou shalt not kyll.
  7. Thou shalt not commit adulterie.
  8. Thou shalt not steale.
  9. Thou shalt not beare false witnesse agaynst thy neyghbour.
  10. Thou shalt not couet thy neyghbours house, neyther shalt thou couet thy neyghbours wyfe, nor his man seruaut, nor his mayde, nor his oxe, nor his asse, or whatsoeuer thy neighbour hath.
