Exodus 20 The 10 Commandments (HCSB)

Then God spoke all these words: I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery.

Commandment 1

Do not have other gods besides Me.

Commandment 2

Do not make an idol for yourself, whether in the shape of anything in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth. You must not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the fathers' sin, to the third and fourth [generations] of those who hate Me, but showing faithful love to a thousand [generations] of those who love Me and keep My commands.

Commandment 3

Do not misuse the name of the LORD your God, because the LORD will punish anyone who misuses His name.

Commandment 4

Remember to dedicate the Sabbath day: You are to labor six days and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. You must not do any work—you, your son or daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the foreigner who is within your gates. For the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and everything in them in six days; then He rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and declared it holy.

Commandment 5

Honor your father and your mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.

Commandment 6

Do not murder.

Commandment 7

Do not commit adultery.

Commandment 8

Do not steal.

Commandment 9

Do not give false testimony against your neighbor.

Commandment 10

Do not covet your neighbor's house. Do not covet your neighbor's wife, his male or female slave, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

The Holman Christian Standard Bible Version is a completely new translation unlike many of the other recent translations. The translators of the HCSB also utilized computer study bible software more than many other translations had at every stage of the process. The goal of the translators was to produce a more accurate translation. In some instances the translators of the HCSB achieved their goal even if it mean breaking with tradition. For example, the last verse of Psalm 23 in the Holman Christian Standard Bible reads: "Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD as long as I live." Whereas the traditional KJV says "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever." The Hebrew phrase translated "for ever" is more accurately translated "For a length of days" in Young's Literal Translation. So both the Holman Christian Standard version and Young's translation are more accurate than the KJV in this verse.
