Make sure you do not turn away to serve and worship other gods! 1
You must set boundaries 1 for the people all around, saying, ‘Take heed 2 to yourselves not to go up on the mountain nor touch its edge. Whoever touches the mountain will surely be put to death!
Everyone must be on his guard around his friends. He must not even trust any of his relatives. 1 For every one of them will find some way to cheat him. 2 And all of his friends will tell lies about him.
The Lord says, ‘Be very careful if you value your lives! 1 Do not carry any loads 2 in through 3 the gates of Jerusalem on the Sabbath day.
Be on guard so that you do not forget the covenant of the Lord your God that he has made with you, and that you do not make an image of any kind, just as he 1 has forbidden 2 you.
