*King James Version*

And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have
brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

1. *Thou shalt have no other gods before me.*
2. *Thou shalt not make unto 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 water under the earth.* Thou shalt not bow down thyself to 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; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them
that love me, and keep my commandments.
3. *Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain;* for the

The *Ten Commandments*, also known as the *Decalogue*, are a set of
biblical principles relating to ethics and worship, which play a
fundamental role in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. They include
instructions to worship only God and to keep the sabbath, and prohibitions
against idolatry, blasphemy, murder, theft, dishonesty, and adultery.
Different groups follow slightly different traditions for interpreting and
numbering them.
