Exodus 20:11  Exodus 21:6

11 For in six days Jehovah made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore Jehovah blessed the Sabbath day and sanctified it.

12 Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be extended upon the land which Jehovah your God is giving you.

13 You shall not kill.

14 You shall not commit adultery.

15 You shall not steal.

16 You shall not testify with false testimony against your neighbor.

17 You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that belongs to your neighbor.

18 And all the people saw the thunder and the flashes of lightning and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood at a distance.

19 And they said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak with us, so we do not die.

20 And Moses said to the people, Do not be afraid; for God has come in order to test you, and in order that the fear of Him may be before you, so that you do not sin.

21 And the people stood at a distance, and Moses drew near to the deep darkness where God was.

22 And Jehovah said to Moses, Thus shall you say to the children of Israel, You yourselves have seen that I have spoken to you from heaven.

23 You shall not make other gods besides Me; gods of silver or gods of gold, you shall not make for yourselves.

24 An altar of earth you shall make for Me, and shall sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your oxen; in every place where I cause My name to be remembered, I will come to you and bless you.

25 And if you make Me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stones; for if you lift up your tool upon it, you have polluted it.

26 Neither shall you go up by steps to My altar, so that your nakedness may not be uncovered on it.



1 Now these are the ordinances which you shall set before them.

2 If you buy a Hebrew servant, he shall serve six years; but in the seventh he shall go out free without payment to you.

3 If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself; if he is the husband of a wife, then his wife shall go out with him.

4 If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master’s, and he shall go out by himself.

5 But if the servant plainly says, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free;

6 Then his master shall bring him to God and shall bring him to the door or to the doorpost, and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him forever.
