Exod 20:6 but showing loving-commitment to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.

You do not do any 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. Footnote: b There are other Sabbaths, but this is the weekly Sabbath.
Exod 20:11 “For in six days יהוה (Yahweh) made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore יהוה (Yahweh) blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart.

Exod 20:18 And all the people saw the thunders, the lightning flashes, the voice of the shophar, and the mountain smoking. And the people saw it, and they trembled and stood at a distance,
Exod 20:19 and said to Mosheh, “You speak with us and we hear, but let not Elohim speak with us, lest we die.”
Exod 20:20 And Mosheh said to the people, “Do not fear, for Elohim has come to prove you, and in order that His fear be before you, so that you do not sin.”
Exod 20:21 So the people stood at a distance, but Mosheh drew near the thick darkness where Elohim was.
Exod 20:22 And יהוה (Yahweh) said to Mosheh, “Say this to the children of Yisra’ĕl: ‘You yourselves have seen that I have spoken to you from the heavens.
Exod 20:23 ‘You do not make besides Me mighty ones of silver, and you do not make mighty ones of gold for yourselves.
Exod 20:24 ‘Make a slaughter-place of earth for Me, and you shall slaughter on it your ascending offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your cattle. In every place where I cause My Name to be remembered I shall come to you and bless you.
Exod 20:25 ‘And if you make Me a slaughter-place of stone, do not build it of cut stone, for if you use your chisel on it, you have profaned it.
Exod 20:26 ‘Nor do you go up by steps to My slaughter-place, lest your nakedness be exposed on it.’
