Abbreviated Commandment Quote from King James Edition
Exodus 20 verses 3 to 17
Thou shall have No Other Gods3"You shall have no other gods before me.
Thou shall not make Graven Images4"You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5you 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 the fourth generation of those who hate me, 6but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Thou shalt not Take the Name of the Lord in Vain7"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.
Remember the Sabbath Day8"Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9Six days you shall labour, and do all your work; 10 but 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, your manservant, or your maidservant, or your cattle, or the sojourner who is within your gates; 11for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it.
Honour thy Father and Mother12"Honour your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which the LORD your God gives you.
Thou shalt not Murder13"You shall not kill.
Thou shalt not Commit Adultery14 "You shall not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not Steal15"You shall not steal.
Thou shalt not Bear False Witness16"You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
Thou shalt not Covet thy neighbour's ass17"You shall not covet your neighbour's house; you shall not covet your neighbour's wife, or his manservant, or his maidservant, or his ox, or his ass, or anything that is your neighbour's."
