The 10 Commands in Exodus 20

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.

1st Commandment
“You shall have no other gods before Me.
2nd Commandment
“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.
3rd Commandment
“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.
4th Commandment
“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.
5th Commandment
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
6th Commandment
“You shall not murder.
7th Commandment
“You shall not commit adultery.
8th Commandment
“You shall not steal.
9th Commandment
“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
10th Commandment
“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.”

The New King James Version of the Bible is a revision of the King James Version which updates the old english of the KJV to modern English. The most noticeable difference in the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:1-17 is that "thou shalt not" in the KJV has been changed to "you shall not" in the NKJV. "Thou" is 2nd person singular whereas "you" is 2nd person plural. Thus, the NKJV became less accurate by removing the thee's and thou's. The NKJV is Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc. It is also a popular version to include in various Study Bibles.
