Ten Commandments in Verse

The Ten Commandments, as rhymed in McGuffey's 3rd Grade Reader (and perhaps others)

1.   THOU no gods shalt have but me.
2.   BEFORE no idol bend the knee.
3.   TAKE not the name of God in vain.
4.   DARE not the Sabbath day profane.
5.   GIVE to thy parents honor due.
6.   TAKE heed that thou no murder do.
7.   ABSTAIN from words and deeds unclean.
8.   STEAL not, for thou by God art seen.
9.   TELL not a willful lie, nor love it.
10.  WHAT is thy neighbor’s, do not covet.
