10 commandments in hebrew
Exodus 20:2-14



first commandment

Anochi Adonay Eloheycha asher hotseticha me’erets Mitsrayim mibeyt avadim.

I, The L-rd, am your G-d who lead you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.



second commandment

Lo yihyeh lecha elohim acherim al-panay. Lo ta’aseh-lecha fesel vechol-temunah asher bashamayim mima’al va’asher ba’arets mitachat va’asher bamayim mitachat la’arets.Lo-tishtachaveh lahem velo ta’ovdem ki anochi Adonay Eloheycha El kana poked avon avot al-banim al-shileshim ve’al-ribe’im leson’ay. Ve’oseh chesed la’alafim le’ohavay uleshomrey mitsvotay.

You shall have no other gods besides me. You shall not carve for yourself an image, the likeness of anything in the heavens above or the earth below, or in the waters under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them, for I the L-rd your G-d am a demanding G-d, inflicting the sins of the parents upon their children, upon the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing steadfast love to those who love me and keep my commandments.



third commandment

Lo tisa et-shem-Adonay Eloheycha lashav ki lo yenakeh Adonay et asher-yisa et-shmo lashav.

You shall not invoke the name of the L-rd you G-d with malice; for the L-rd does not hold guiltless one who invokes His name with malice.



fourth commandment

Sheshet yamim ta’avod ve’asita chol-melachtecha.Veyom hashvi’i Shabat l’Adonay Eloheycha lo ta’aseh chol-melachah atah uvincha-uvitecha avdecha va’amatcha uvehemtecha vegercha asher bish’areycha.

Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy. Six days shall you labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of the L-rd you G-d: you shall do no work – you, your son or daughter, your servants, your domestic animals, or the stranger in the community. For in six days the L-rd made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; then He rested on the seventh day. Therefore the L-rd blessed the Sabbath day and called it holy.
