The Ten Commandments (ENGLISH: The Voice Bible)

ENGLISH: The Voice Bible

Exodus 20:3-17

3 You are not to serve any other gods before Me.

4 You are not to make any idol or image of other gods. In fact, you are not to make an image of anything in the heavens above, on the earth below, or in the waters beneath.

5 You are not to bow down and serve any image, for I, the Eternal your God, am a jealous God. As for those who are not loyal to Me, their children will endure the consequences of their sins for three or four generations.

6 But for those who love Me and keep My directives, their children will experience My loyal love for a thousand generations.

7 You are not to use My name for your own idle purposes, for the Eternal will punish anyone who treats His name as anything less than sacred.

8 You and your family are to remember the Sabbath Day; set it apart, and keep it holy.

9 You have six days to do all your work,

10 but the seventh day is to be different; it is the Sabbath of the Eternal your God. Keep it holy by not doing any work—not you, your sons, your daughters, your male and female servants, your livestock, or any outsiders living among you.

11 For the Eternal made the heavens above, the earth below, the seas, and all the creatures in them in six days. Then, on the seventh day, He rested. That is why He blessed the Sabbath Day and made it sacred.

12 You are to honor your father and mother. If you do, you and your children will live long and well in the land the Eternal your God has promised to give you.

13 You are not to murder.

14 You are not to commit adultery.

15 You are not to take what is not yours.

16 You are not to give false testimony against your neighbor.

17 You are not to covet what your neighbor has or set your heart on getting his house, his wife, his male or female servants, his ox or donkey, or anything else that belongs to your neighbor.
