Original Bible Ten Commandments
Catholic Ten Commandments
|1st||Exodus 20:2-3 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.||1st||I am the LORD thy God. Thou shalt have no strange gods before Me.|
|2nd||Exodus 20:4-6 You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my Commandments.||Deleted.
(The second Commandment has been deleted or sometimes it has been absorbed into the first. All remaining Commandments are therefore shifted along one count.)
|3rd||Exodus 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God In vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.||2nd||Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain.|
|4th||Exodus 20:8-11 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD your God: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.||3rd||Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.
(The Sabbath is the fourth Commandment by normal count.)
|5th||Exodus 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.||4th||Honour thy father and thy mother.|
|6th||Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.||5th||Thou shalt not kill.|
|7th||Exodus 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.||6th||Thou shalt not commit adultery.|
|8th||Exodus 20:15 Thou shalt not steal.||7th||Thou shalt not steal.|
|9th||Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.||8th||Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.|
|10th||Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.||9th||Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife.
(The Tenth Commandment is split into two to get back to Ten Commandments.)
|10th||Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's goods.|
