The Tenth Commandment

The Tenth Commandment
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his cattle, nor anything that is his.
What does this mean?--Answer.
We should fear and love God that we may not estrange, force, or entice away our neighbor's wife, servants, or cattle, but urge them to stay and [diligently] do their duty.

問い これはどういう意味ですか。
答え 私たちは神を畏れ、愛さなければなりません。ですから、私たちは隣人の牛を放したり、雇い人を奪ったり、妻を誘惑したりしてはいけません。そうではなくて、彼らが隣人のところにとどまりつづけ、それぞれの義務を果たすようにしなければなりません。
