2nd Commandment

 

In general, the commandments have been summarized to their critical points and leave out a lot of other dialogue. This second commandment was a lot longer than I had thought and for some reason, I had a more challenge that I anticipated of memorizing it. I am about 95% there and will begin working on the 3rd commandment.

 

ESV

NIV

NASB

Exodus 20:4–6 (ESV)

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or 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 or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

 

Exodus 20:4–6 (NIV)

4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

 

Exodus 20:4–6 (NASB95)

       4  “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. 5  “You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

The First Commandment . . .

I realized the other day, I recognize almost every story a preacher preaches.  I recently memorized all the books of the Bible too.  And then it hit me, something I could not recite were the Ten Commandments.  A fundamental rule/guide book of my faith.  So, I want to have them memorized too and this is the beginning of this process.  I hope you enjoy the posts as I progress and memorize them along with me.  God Bless.

        1 Then
God spoke all these words, saying,

Imagine there’s no heaven

It’s easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people

Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries

It isn’t hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people

Living life in peace

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people

Sharing all the world

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will live as one

If I Perish, I Perish — Growing God’s Eternal Family

I wonder how many truths have gone unsaid because we were scared of what people will say or react. I wonder how many ideas, dreams, and goals have gone unfulfilled because we were scared it wouldn’t turn out well, so we didn’t bother to start. I wonder. I wonder. I wonder… If only we will […]
