12 1A I the Lord am your God who brought you out of the, the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods beside Me. You shall not make for yourself a sculptured image, or any likeness, of what is in the heavens above, or on the earth below, or in the waters under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them. For I the Lord your God am an impassioned God, visiting the guilt of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and fourth generations of those who reject Me, but showing kindness to the thousandth generation of those who love Me and keep My commandments. 1B You shall not swear falsely by the name of the Lord your God; for the Lord will not clear one who swears falsely by His name. 2A Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy. Six days you shall labour and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of the Lord your God: you shall not do any work-you, your son, or daughter, your male or female slave, or your cattle, or the stranger who is within your settlements. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth and sea, and all that is in them, and He rested on the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. 2B Honour your father and thy mother, that you may long endure on the land which the Lord your God is giving you. 3A You shall not murder. 3B You shall not commit adultery. 4A You shall not steal. 4B You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour 5A You shall not covet your neighbour's house; 5B You shall not covet your neighbour's wife, or his male or female slave, or his ox, or his ass, or anything that is your neighbour's The Five Pairs
