Four Versions of the Ten Commandments: The Third Commandment

This is the third in a series of blogs that presents four versions of the Ten Commandments (based on Exodus 20). Each blog presents a commandment from the sources listed in chronological order below:

(1) Rabbinic Judaism (200 CE)
(2) Catholicism (325 CE)
(3) Protestantism (16th century CE)
(4) Biblical Heritage Center (analysis completed in 2014 CE)

The Third Commandment

Rabbinic Judaism

You shall not take the name of the Lord your G-d in vain.


Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work; but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God; in it, you shall not do any work.


. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.

Biblical Heritage Center

You shall not bow down to graven images or serve them.

Don’t keep this information to yourself – share it with others. The next time someone says something about the Ten Commandments, be sure to ask which version.
