The Commandments


Exodus 20

And God spoke all these words:

“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before  me.”

“You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.”

“You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.”

“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labour and do all your work,  but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”

“Honour your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.”

“You shall not murder.”

“You shall not commit adultery.”

“You shall not steal.”

“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbour.”

“You shall not covet your neighbour’s house. You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbour.”

  1. Wow love this share of yours Jonie . Yes Each person needs boundaries and if only we would take the example of Our Father who cares so deeply for us into our personal lives. Bless you.

  2. The Law does not save us it condems. Only FAITH in the completed works of the Christ saves us. We spend to much time in our churches on the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments and the other 620 commandments were for the Israelites only. If we live by the commandments, we will die by the commandments. We must live by GRACE.
