11 And you came to the foot of the mount, which burned even unto heaven: and there was darkness, and a cloud and obscurity in it. 12 And the Lord spoke to you from the midst of the fire. You heard the voice of his words, but you saw not any form at all. 13 And he shewed you his covenant, which he commanded you to do, and the ten words that he wrote in two tables of stone. 14 And he commanded me at that time that I should teach you the ceremonies and judgments which you shall do in the land, that you shall possess. 15 Keep therefore your souls carefully. You saw not any similitude in the day that the Lord God spoke to you in Horeb from the midst of the fire:
16 Lest perhaps being deceived you might make you a graven similitude, or image of male or female, 17 The similitude of any beasts, that are upon the earth, or of birds, that fly under heaven, 18 Or of creeping things, that move on the earth, or of fishes, that abide in the waters under the earth: 19 Lest perhaps lifting up thy eyes to heaven, thou see the sun and the moon, and all the stars of heaven, and being deceived by error thou adore and serve them, which the Lord thy God created for the service of all the nations, that are under heaven. 20 But the Lord hath taken you and brought you out of the iron furnace of Egypt, to make you his people of inheritance, as it is this present day.
