“I am Yahweh 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 yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me, and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.                “You shall not take the name of Yahweh your God in vain, for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.                “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. You shall labor six days, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahweh your God. You shall not do any work in it, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your livestock, nor your stranger who is within your gates; for in six days Yahweh made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore Yahweh blessed the Sabbath day, and made it holy.                “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which Yahweh your God gives you.                “You shall not murder.                “You shall not commit adultery.                “You shall not steal.                “You shall not give false testimony 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.”

Psalm 37

O Lord, rebuke me not in Thine anger, neither chasten me in Thy wrath. For Thy arrows have stuck fast in me, and Thy hand has been heavy upon me. There is no cure in my flesh because of Thy wrath; there is no peace in my bones because of my sins. For my sins have gone over my head; as a heavy burden they have weighed upon me. My wounds stink and fester through my foolishness. I am miserable and utterly dejected; I go mourning all day long. For my loins are filled with mockings; and there is no cure in my flesh. I am afflicted and humbled exceedingly; I roar from the groaning of my heart. Lord, Thou knowest all my desire; and my groaning is not hidden from Thee. My heart flutters, my strength fails me; and the very light of mine eyes is no longer with me. My friends and neighbours draw near arid confront me; and my nearest stand afar off. Those also who seek my life take to violence; and those who seek to do me evil discuss intrigues, and imagine deceit all the day long. But I am like a deaf man and do not hear, and like one who is dumb and does not open his mouth, I have become like a man who cannot hear, and in his mouth has no reproofs. For in Thee, O Lord, I have put my trust; Thou wilt answer me, O Lord my God. For I said: Lest my enemies rejoice over me, and when my feet slip they exult over me. For I am ready for scourges; and my pain is before me continually. For I confess my wickedness, and am concerned about my sin. But my enemies live, and have got possession of me; and those who hate me wrongfully have multiplied. Those who repay me evil for good have slandered me, because I pursue goodness. Forsake me not, O Lord; O my God, be not far from me. Come to my help, O Lord of my salvation.

(And again)
Forsake me not, O Lord; O my God, be not far from me. Come to my help, O Lord of my salvation.
