seventh day is the sabbath of JEHOVAH thy God, in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates : for in six days JEHOVAH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore JEHOVAH blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. Jehovah is in his | holy temple ; Be silent all the earth before him.
Honor thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long upon the land which Jehovah thy God giveth thee. Thy hands have made me, and formed me; [ments. Make me to understand, that I may learn | thy command
X. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's. All that JEHOVAH hath spoken, We will do and hear.
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.
HEAR, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that ye may learn them, and keep, and do them. Jehovah talked with you face to face in the mount, out of the midst of the fire, saying,
I. I AM JEHOVAH thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not make 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 waters beneath the earth : thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I JEHOVAH 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 showing mercy unto the thousandth generation of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty ; Who art, and who wast, and who | art to come.
lI. Thou shalt not take the name of JEHOVAH thy God in vain : for JEHOVAH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and | glorify thy name;
III. Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as Jehovah thy God hath commanded thee. Six days thou shalt labor, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the sabbath of Jehovah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy man-servant and thy maid-servant may rest as well as thou. And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that Jehovah thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore JEHOVAH thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day. This is the day which JEHOVAH hath made, We will rejoice and be glad in it.
IV. Honor thy father and thy mother, as Jehovah thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which Jehovah thy God giveth thee. Thou art my portion, | O JEHOVAH; I have said that I would | keep thy words.
Thou shalt not kill.
Let thy mercies come unto me, that | I may live ;
VII. Neither shalt thou steal.
Righteous art thou, | O JEHOVAH;
way | do I hate.
Thy testimonies have I taken as an | heritage forever,
X. Neither shalt thou covet thy neighbor's house, his field, or his man-servant, or his maid-servant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbor's. Thou art near, | O JEHOVAH, And all thy commandments are truth.
THE NEW COVENANT.
And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he had sat down his disciples came unto him. And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful : for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see GOD.
Blessed are the peace-makers : for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they that are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when they shall revile you, secute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Rejoice and be exceeding glad; for great is your reward in heaven : for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you.
[After these Blessings, one or more of the following passages may be read.]
Ye are the salt of the earth : but if the salt have lost its savor, wherewith shall it be salted ? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
THINK not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily, I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one
