The TEN COMMANDMENTS IN RHYME - Poem


1.       I am the Lord God, which has brought out thee.
You shall have no other gods before Me.
 I brought you out of Egypt , which is sin,
 Out of the house of bondage, you live in.
 
2.      You shall not make any graven image: to love.
Or, any likeness of things in heaven above,
Or, that is in the whole earth below,
Or, in the water both still and flow.
You shall not bow down yourself, at all to them,
Or, serve them. I am a jealous God. (Amen).
I will visit the father’s sins on the children,
unto the second, third and fourth generation,
to all those that hate Me. I am showing mercy to thousands,
that do keep my commands and love Me.
 
3.      You shall not take the name of the Lord God in vain.
    He finds guilt in who does it, again and again.
 
4.      Remember the Sabbath day, keep it holy, good.
For six days you shall labour and work for your food.
The seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God.
In it you shall not work, or even think it is odd.
Not your son, daughter, maid, man, or visitors.
No not anyone, not even animals within your doors.
For in six days the Lord made heaven, earth and seas
and all that is in them, but the seventh day at ease.
The Lord blessed the Sabbath, wherefore,
and hallowed it then: evermore.
 
5.      Honour your father and your mother, anon,
that your, Lord God given days, on earth, are long.
 
6.      You shall not kill.
 
7.      You shall not commit adultery.
 
8.      You shall not steal.
 
9.      You shall not be a witness falsely.
 
10.    You shall not covert your neighbours home.
His wife, man / maidservants, leave alone.
Not anything they own or possess.
 
These are God’s rules: no more, no less.
 
It is the sum.
It is the true fix,
to bring freedom!
So, give up your tricks!
