4“You must not make for yourself a carved image, or any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
5you must not bow down to thema and you must not serve them because I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, even on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me,
6but showing covenant faithfulness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
8“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9You are to labor six days, and do all your work,
10but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahweh your God. On it you must not do any work—you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your livestock, nor your stranger who is inside your gates.
11For in six days Yahweh made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore Yahweh blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
18All the people saw the thunderings, the lightnings, the sound of the shofar, and the mountain smoking. When the people saw it, they trembled, and stayed at a distance.
19They said to Moses, “Speak with us yourself, and we will listen; but do not let God speak with us, lest we die.”
20Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid, for God has come to test you so that the fear of him will be with you and so that you will not sin.”
21The people stayed at a distance, and Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was.
22Yahweh said to Moses, “This is what you are to tell the children of Israel: ‘You yourselves have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.
23You must most certainly not make alongside of me gods of silver, or gods of gold for yourselves.
24You must make an altar of earth for me and must sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your cattle. In every place where I record my name I will come to you and I will bless you.
25If you make me an altar of stone, you must not build it of cut stones, for if you lift up your tool on it you have polluted it.
26You must not go up by steps onto my altar, so that your nakedness is not exposed on it.’
