One page printable children's version of the Ten Commandments.
I don't know about you, but I could never remember the Ten Commandments growing up. And even if I could, the language isn't quite at the comprehension level of young children (no offense God!). Now that I'm looking at the possibility of home schooling, I wanted something worthy of hanging as decor, easy for my daughter to understand, and focused on positive actions rather than a list of "don't's". Here's a list of the actual commandments vs the children's language version found on this print out.
1. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; you shall have no other gods before me. (Put God first always.)
2. You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God (Keep God more important than things.)
3. You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not acquit anyone who misuses his name. (Speak kind words.)
4.Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work. 10 But the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work. (Rest one day a week.)
5. Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. (Obey your parents.)
6. You shall not murder. (Do no harm.)
7. You shall not commit adultery. (Show integrity.)
8. You shall not steal. (Do not take what is not yours.)
9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. (Always tell the truth.)
10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor. (Be proud of what you have.)
