The Ten Commandments Martin Luthers Small Catechism. When it comes to counting the commandments, there are different traditions in Judaism and in the Christian churches. The version reproduced here follows the Lutheran and Roman Catholic tradition.
A different counting occurs where the prohibition of images - "Thou shalt make no graven image" - is listed as the second commandment, as in the Anglican, Reformed and Orthodox tradition. There, the “ninth” and “tenth” commandment are then understood as one commandment.
The First Commandment
I am the Lord your God. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
The second commandment
You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
The Third Commandment
Thou shalt sanctify the holiday.
The Fourth Commandment
You should honor your father and mother.
The Fifth Commandment
You should not kill.
The sixth commandment
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
The seventh commandment
You shall not steal.
The Eighth Commandment
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
The Ninth Commandment
You shall not covet your neighbor's house.
The Tenth Commandment
You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, manservant, maidservant, cattle, or anything that your neighbor has.
