God wrote on stone

His own



Before Moses could reveal them,

The people God chose turned against Him

And made golden idols.


Moses stood with God again

On the same mountain

For forty days and nights.


The Lord made a convenant

By Moses sent

To Israel.


“You shall have no other gods before Me

You shall not make idols

Or misuse My Name.”


“You shall keep the Sabbath holy

Honor your fathers and mothers

Never murder.”


“You shall not commit adultery

Steal or lie

You shall not covet.”


Later His Son added,

“Love your neighbor as yourself.”
