Holy Bible In Modern English
by Ferrar Fenton
1. Then the EVER-LIVING dictated all these commands, and said;
COMMANDMENT I.2. "I am your EVER-LIVING GOD, Who brought you out from the Mitzeraim, from the house of bondage.
3. There shall be no other GOD to you, except MYSELF."
COMMANDMENT II.4. "You shall not make for youselves any image, or likeness of anything that is in the heavens above; or that is upon the earth beneath; or that is in the waters lower than the earth;
5. you shall not worship them or serve them, for I, your EVER-LIVING GOD, am a jealous GOD, visiting the sins of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me;
6. but I show mercy for thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
COMMANDMENT III.7. "You shall not take the Name of your EVER-LIVING GOD in vain, for the LORD will not hold guiltless the taking of His Name in vain.
COMMANDMENT IV.8. "Remember the seventh day to keep it holy.
9. Six days you may labour, and do all your business,
10. but the seventh day is a Rest to your EVER-LIVING GOD. You shall not then do any business, you, or your son, or your daughter, your man-servant, or your maid-servant, or your cattle, or your stranger who is within your gates;
11. for in six ages the EVER-LIVING made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, but rested at the seventh age; therefore the EVER-LIVING blessed the seventh day and hallowed it.
COMMANDMENT V.12. "Honour your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land wich the EVER-LIVING GOD will give to you.
COMMANDMENT VI.13. "You shall not murder.
COMMANDMENT VII.14. "You shall not commit adultery.
COMMANDMENT VIII.15. "You shall not steal.
COMMANDMENT IX.16. "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
COMMANDMENT X.17. "You shall not covet your neighbour's house; you shall not covet your neighbour's wife; or his man-servant, or his maid-servant, or his ox, or his ass, or anything that is your neighbour's."
