    Exodus 20:1-17

    And God spoke all these words, saying: “I am the Lord your God, who
    brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You
    shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a
    carved image – any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that
    is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; You
    shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am
    a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to
    the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, But showing mercy
    to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. You shall
    not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not
    hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain. Remember the Sabbath day,
    to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, But the
    seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no
    work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor
    your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within
    your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the
    sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the
    Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God
    is giving you. You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You
    shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
    You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your
    neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his
    ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.

    God gives us specific instructions on how to live. The goal of life is
    to live a life pleasing to God. There are benefits on earth, and in the hereafter.
