5:4 The Lord spoke face to face with you at the mountain, from the middle of the fire. 5:5 (I was standing between the Lord and you at that time to reveal to you the message 1 of the Lord, because you were afraid of the fire and would not go up the mountain.) He said:
The Ten Commandments
5:6 “I am the Lord your God, he who brought you from the land of Egypt, from the place of slavery. 5:7 You must not have any other gods 2 besides me. 3 5:8 You must not make for yourself an image 4 of anything in heaven above, on earth below, or in the waters beneath. 5 5:9 You must not worship or serve them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God. I punish 6 the sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons for the sin of the fathers who reject 7 me, 8 5:10 but I show covenant faithfulness 9 to the thousands 10 who choose 11 me and keep my commandments.
