The Ten Commandments: Deuteronomy 5:6-21 (NCV):

New Century Version

6"I am the LORD your God; I brought you out of the land of Egypt where you were slaves.

7"You must not have any other gods except me.

8"You must not make for yourselves any idols or anything to worship that looks like something in the sky above or on the earth below or in the water below the land. 9You must not worship or serve any idol, because I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God. If people sin against me and hate me, I will punish their children, even their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 10But I will be very kind for a thousand lifetimes to those who love me and obey my commands.

11"You must not use the name of the LORD your God thoughtlessly, because the LORD will punish anyone who uses his name in this way.

12"Keep the Sabbath as a holy day, as the LORD your God has commanded you. 13You may work and get everything done during six days each week, 14but the seventh day is a day of rest to honor the LORD your God. On that day no one may do any work: not you, your son or daughter, your male or female slaves, your ox, your donkey, or any of your animals, or the foreigners living in your cities. That way your servants may rest as you do. 15Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there by his great power and strength. So the LORD your God has commanded you to rest on the Sabbath day.

16"Honor your father and your mother as the LORD your God has commanded you. Then you will live a long time, and things will go well for you in the land that the LORD your God is going to give you.

17"You must not murder anyone.

18"You must not be guilty of adultery.

19"You must not steal.

20"You must not tell lies about your neighbor.

21"You must not want to take your neighbor's wife. You must not want to take your neighbor's house or land, his male or female slaves, his ox or his donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."
