Camas Friends Church

A Quaker Meeting in Camas, WA

Exodus 20:1-17 (Lectio Divina)

unnamed (32)

Note: Instead of a traditional message this week we corporately practiced Lectio Divina, a contemplative approach to engaging Scripture. This means there are significant gaps in this audio recording where there is either silence or someone from our meeting speaking without a microphone. Consider yourself warned! ūüôā And, if possible, set aside enough time to listen to this week’s podcast without skipping over the silence.

Exodus 20:1-17 (NRSV): The Ten Commandments

1 Then God spoke all these words:

2 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; 3 you shall have no other gods before me.

4 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, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me, 6 but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments.

7 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.

8¬†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‚ÄĒyou, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns.¬†11¬†For¬†in six days¬†the¬†Lord¬†made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the¬†Lord blessed the sabbath day and consecrated it.

12 Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

13 You shall not murder.

14 You shall not commit adultery.

15 You shall not steal.

16 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

17 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.
