Deuteronomy 5

1 And Moses (Mosheh) called all Yisrael, and said unto them: “Hear, O Yisrael, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that you may learn them, and keep, and do them.

2 יהוה our God (Elohim) made a covenant with us in Horeb (Chorev).

3 יהוה made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day.

4 יהוה talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire,

5 (I stood between יהוה and you at that time, to shew you the word of יהוה; for you were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mountain;) saying:

6 ‘I am יהוה your God (Elohim), who brought you out of the land of Egypt (Mitsrayim), from the house of bondage.

7 You shalt have none other gods (elohim) before Me.

8 You shalt not make you any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth;

9 You shalt not bow down yourself unto them, nor serve them; for I יהוה your God (Elohim) am a jealous God (El), visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me,

10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me and keep My commandments.

11 You shalt not take the name of יהוה your God (Elohim) in vain, for יהוה will not hold Him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.

12 Keep the Shabbat day to sanctify it, as יהוה your God (Elohim) hath commanded you.

13 Six days you shalt labor, and do all your work:

14 But the seventh day is the Shabbat of יהוה your God (Elohim). In it you shalt not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your ox, nor your ass, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates, that your manservant and your maidservant may rest as well as you.

15 And remember that you wast a servant in the land of Egypt (Mitsrayim), and that יהוה your God (Elohim) brought you out thence through a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore יהוה your God (Elohim) commanded you to keep the Shabbat day.

16 Honor your father and your mother, as יהוה your God (Elohim) hath commanded you, that your days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with you, in the land which יהוה your God (Elohim) giveth you.

17 You shalt not kill.

18 Neither shalt you commit adultery.

19 Neither shalt you steal.

20 Neither shalt you bear false witness against your neighbour.

21 Neither shalt you desire your neighbour’s wife, neither shalt you covet your neighbour’s house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or anything that is your neighbour’s.’

22 These words יהוה spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and He added no more. And He wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.

23 And it came to pass, when you heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that you came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders;

24 And you said: ‘Behold, יהוה our God (Elohim) hath shewed us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice out of the midst of the fire. We have seen this day that God (Elohim) doth talk with man, yet he liveth.

25 Now therefore why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of יהוה our God (Elohim) anymore, then we shall die.

26 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the 2aliving God (Elohim chayim) speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?

27 Go you near, and hear all that יהוה our God (Elohim) shall say: and speak you unto us all that יהוה our God (Elohim) shall speak unto you; and we will hear it, and do it.’

28 And יהוה heard the voice of your words, when you spake unto me; and יהוה said unto me: ‘I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto you: they have well said all that they have spoken.

29 O that there was such a heart in them, that they would fear Me, and keep all My commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children forever!

30 Go say to them, “Get you into your tents again.”

31 But as for you, stand you here by Me, and I will speak unto you all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which you shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.’

32 You shall observe to do therefore as יהוה your God (Elohim) hath commanded you; you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

33 You shall walk in all the ways which יהוה your God (Elohim) hath commanded you, that you may live, and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you shall possess.
