The Ten Commandments

And God spake all these words saying,
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.
Thou shalt not make unto 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 water under the earth:
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:  for
I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity
of the fathers upon the children unto the third and forth generation
of them that hate me;
And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me,
and keep my commandments.
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.
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 thy God:  in it thou
shalt no do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy
manservant, nor thy maidservant, not thy cattle, nor thy
stranger that is within thy gates:
For in six days the Lord made the 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.
Honour thy father and thy mother:  that thy days may be long upon
the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
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.
Exodus 20:1-17
I know that it is hard to keep God's will always.  He only gave us 10 rules.
I don't keep them always, but I know that I will try harder to do what's asked of me.
Won't you try it too?
