The Covenant in Horeb.
Deuteronomy 5:1 And Moses called all Israel, & sayde vnto the: Heare Israel the ordinaunces & lawes which I speake in yor cares this daye: lerne them, & kepe the so, that ye do therafter. Deuteronomy 5:2 The LORDE oure God made a couenaunt with vs at Horeb: Deuteronomy 5:3 he made not this couenaunt with oure fathers, but with vs, that are here this daie, and lyue euery one. Deuteronomy 5:4 He talked with vs face to face out of the fyre vpo the mount. Deuteronomy 5:5 I stode at the same tyme betwixte the LORDE and you, that I mighte shewe you the worde of the LORDE. For ye were afrayed of the fyre, & wente not vp to the mount, and he sayde:
The Ten Commandments.
Deuteronomy 5:6 I am the LORDE thy God, which haue brought the out of the londe of Egipte, out of the house of bondage. Deuteronomy 5:7 Thou shalt haue none other goddes in my sighte. Deuteronomy 5:8 Thou shalt make the no grauen ymage of eny maner of licknesse of the thinges yt are aboue in heauen, & beneth vpon earth, & in the water vnder the earth. Deuteronomy 5:9 Thou shalt not honor them, ner serue the. For I ye LORDE yi God am a gelous God, vysitinge the synne of the fathers vpo the children, vnto the thirde and fourth generacion, of the yt hate me: Deuteronomy 5:10 & shewe mercye vpon many thousandes yt loue me, and kepe my commaundementes. Deuteronomy 5:11 Thou shalt not take ye name of ye LORDE yi God in vayne: For ye LORDE shal not holde him vngiltie, yt taketh his name in vaine. Deuteronomy 5:12 Kepe ye Sabbath daye, that thou sanctifye it, as the LORDE thy God hath commauded the. Deuteronomy 5:13 Sixe daies shalt thou laboure, and do all thy worke, Deuteronomy 5:14 but vpon the seuenth daye it is the Sabbath of the LORDE thy God: No maner worke shalt thou do in it, thou, and thy sonne, and thy doughter, and thy seruaunt, and thy mayde, and thine oxe, and thine Asse, and all thy catell, and the straunger which is within thy gates, that thy seruaunt and thy mayde maye rest as well as thou. Deuteronomy 5:15 For thou shalt remebre, that thou thyself also wast a seruaunte in the londe of Egipte, and how that the LORDE thy God brought the out from thence with a mightye hande, and a stretched out arme. Therfore hath the LORDE yi God commaunded ye to kepe the Sabbath daye.
Deuteronomy 5:16 Honoure thy father and thy mother, as the LORDE thy God hath commaunded the that thou mayest lyue longe vpo earth, and that it maye go well with the in the londe, which the LORDE thy God shall geue the. Deuteronomy 5:17 Thou shalt not kyll. Deuteronomy 5:18 Thou shalt not breake wedlocke. Deuteronomy 5:19 Thou shalt not steale. Deuteronomy 5:20 Thou shalt beare no false witnes against thy neghboure. Deuteronomy 5:21 Thou shalt not lust after yi neghbours wyfe. Thou shalt not lust after thy neghbours house, londe, seruaunt, mayde, oxe, Asse, or what so euer he hath.
At the people's request Moses receiveth the Law from God.
Deuteronomy 5:22 These are the wordes that the LORDE spake to all youre congregacion, vpon the mount out of the fyre of the cloude and darknesse with a greate voyce, and added nothinge therto. And he wrote them vpon two tables of stone, and delyuered the vnto me. Deuteronomy 5:23 But whan ye herde the voyce out of the darknes, and sawe the mount burne wt fyre, ye came vnto me all ye rulers amonge youre trybes, and youre Elders Deuteronomy 5:24 and sayde: Beholde, the LORDE oure God hath shewed vs his glory & his greatnes, and we haue herde his voyce out of ye fyre. This daye haue we sene, that God maie talke with a man, and he yet lyue. Deuteronomy 5:25 And now wherfore shulde we dye, that this fire shulde cosume vs? Yf we shulde heare the voyce of the LORDE oure God eny more, we shulde dye. Deuteronomy 5:26 For what is all fleshe, that it shulde be able to heare ye voyce of the lyuynge God speakynge out of ye fyre, as we haue done, and yet lyue? Deuteronomy 5:27 Go thou and heare all yt the LORDE oure God sayeth, and tell us. All yt the LORDE sayeth vnto the, that will we heare and do. Deuteronomy 5:28 Whan the LORDE herde the voyce of yor wordes which ye spake vnto me, he sayde vnto me: I haue herde ye voyce of the wordes of this people, which they haue spoken vnto ye. It is all good that they haue spoken. Deuteronomy 5:29 But who shal geue them soch an herte, yt they maye feare me, & kepe all my comaundementes as longe as they lyue, yt it maye go well with them, and with their childre for euer? Deuteronomy 5:30 Go & saye vnto them: Get you in to yor tentes agayne. Deuteronomy 5:31 But thou shalt stonde here before me, that I maye tell the all the commaundementes, and ordinauces and lawes which thou shalt teach them yt they maye do therafter in the lode, which I shal geue the to possesse. Deuteronomy 5:32 Take hede now therfore that ye do, as the LORDE yor God hath commaunded you, and turne not asyde nether to ye right hande ner to the lefte: Deuteronomy 5:33 but walke in all ye wayes which the LORDE youre God hath commaunded you, that ye maie lyue, and that it maie go well with you, and yt ye maye lyue longe in ye londe which ye shall haue in possession.
