1 Vocavitque Moyses omnem Israelem et dixit ad eos: "Audi, Israel, praecepta atque iudicia, quae ego loquor in auribus vestris hodie; discite ea et opere complete.
2 Dominus Deus noster pepigit nobiscum foedus in Horeb.
3 Non cum patribus nostris iniit pactum hoc sed nobiscum, qui in praesentiarum hic sumus, omnibus nobis, qui vivimus.
4 Facie ad faciem locutus est vobis in monte de medio ignis;
5 ego sequester et medius fui inter Dominum et vos in tempore illo, ut annuntiarem vobis verba eius; timuistis enim ignem et non ascendistis in montem. Et ait:
6 "Ego Dominus Deus tuus, qui eduxi te de terra Aegypti, de domo servitutis.
7 Non habebis deos alienos in conspectu meo.
8 Non facies tibi sculptile nec similitudinem omnium, quae in caelo sunt desuper et quae in terra deorsum et quae versantur in aquis sub terra.
9 Non adorabis ea et non coles: Ego enim sum Dominus Deus tuus, Deus aemulator, reddens iniquitatem patrum super filios in tertiam et quartam generationem his, qui oderunt me,
10 et faciens misericordiam in multa milia diligentibus me et custodientibus praecepta mea.
11 Non usurpabis nomen Domini Dei tui frustra, quia non erit impunitus, qui super re vana nomen eius assumpserit.
12 Observa diem sabbati, ut sanctifices eum, sicut praecepit tibi Dominus Deus tuus.
13 Sex diebus operaberis et facies omnia opera tua.
14 Septimus dies sabbatum est Domino Deo tuo. Non facies in eo quidquam operis tu et filius tuus et filia, servus et ancilla et bos et asinus et omne iumentum tuum et peregrinus tuus, qui est intra portas tuas, ut requiescat servus tuus et ancilla tua sicut et tu.
15 Memento quod et ipse servieris in Aegypto, et eduxerit te inde Dominus Deus tuus in manu forti et brachio extento: idcirco praecepit tibi, ut observares diem sabbati.
16 Honora patrem tuum et matrem, sicut praecepit tibi Dominus Deus tuus, ut longo vivas tempore et bene sit tibi in terra, quam Dominus Deus tuus daturus est tibi.
17 Non occides.
18 Neque moechaberis.
19 Furtumque non facies.
20 Nec loqueris contra proximum tuum falsum testimonium.
21 Nec concupisces uxorem proximi tui. Nec desiderabis domum proximi tui, non agrum, non servum, non ancillam, non bovem, non asinum et universa, quae illius sunt"
22 Haec verba locutus est Dominus ad omnem multitudinem vestram in monte, de medio ignis et nubis et caliginis voce magna nihil addens amplius; et scripsit ea in duabus tabulis lapideis, quas tradidit mihi.
23 Vos autem, postquam audistis vocem de medio tenebrarum et montem ardere vidistis, accessistis ad me omnes principes tribuum et maiores natu
24 atque dixistis: "Ecce ostendit nobis Dominus Deus noster maiestatem et magnitudinem suam; vocem eius audivimus de medio ignis et probavimus hodie quod, loquente Deo cum homine, vixerit homo.
25 Nunc autem cur moriemur, et devorabit nos ignis hic maximus? Si enim audierimus ultra vocem Domini Dei nostri, moriemur.
26 Quid est omnis caro, ut audiat vocem Dei viventis, qui de medio ignis loquitur, sicut nos audivimus, et possit vivere?
27 Tu magis accede et audi cuncta, quae dixerit Dominus Deus noster, et tu loqueris ad nos cuncta, quae dixerit Dominus Deus noster tibi, et nos audientes faciemus ea"
28 Quod cum audisset Dominus, ait ad me: "Audivi vocem verborum populi huius, quae locuti sunt tibi: bene omnia sunt locuti.
29 Quis det talem eos habere mentem, ut timeant me et custodiant universa mandata mea in omni tempore, ut bene sit eis et filiis eorum in sempiternum?
30 Vade et dic eis: Revertimini in tentoria vestra.
31 Tu vero, hic sta mecum, et loquar tibi omnia mandata et praecepta atque iudicia, quae docebis eos, ut faciant ea in terra, quam dabo illis in possessionem"
32 Custodite igitur et facite, quae praecepit Dominus Deus vester vobis; non declinabitis neque ad dexteram neque ad sinistram,
33 sed per totam viam, quam praecepit Dominus Deus vester, ambulabitis, ut vivatis, et bene sit vobis, et protelentur dies in terra possessionis vestrae.
King James Version
1 And Moses called all Israel, and said unto them, Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that ye may learn them, and keep, and do them.
2 The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.
3 The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day.
4 The LORD talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire,
5 (I stood between the LORD and you at that time, to shew you the word of the LORD: for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying,
6 ¶ I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me.
8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:
9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, 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 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
12 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.
13 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:
14 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.
15 And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.
16 ¶ Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
17 Thou shalt not kill.
18 Neither shalt thou commit adultery.
19 Neither shalt thou steal.
20 Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour.
21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's.
22 ¶ These words the LORD 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 ye heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders;
24 And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God 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 doth talk with man, and he liveth.
25 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any more, then we shall die.
26 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?
27 Go thou near, and hear all that the LORD our God shall say: and speak thou unto us all that the LORD our God shall speak unto thee; and we will hear it, and do it.
28 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken.
29 O that there were such an 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 for ever!
30 Go say to them, Get you into your tents again.
31 But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.
32 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.
33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.
