The Ten Commandments for Cowboys

In light of just finishing up a sermon series on the Ten Commandments, I thought I would post this. It’s a new translation–called the “Old West Version” or OWV. And it’s just for fun. I found it on Bible Belt Blogger.

Just one God.
Put nothin’ before God.
Watch yer mouth.
Git yourself to Sunday meeting.
Honor yer Ma & Pa.
No killin’.
No foolin’ around with another fellow’s gal.
Don’t take what ain’t yers.
No telling tales or gossipin’.
Don’t be hankerin’ for yer buddy’s stuff.

  1. Growin’ up where boots ‘n dress jeans were common attire on Sunday morn, these make complete sense!

    I smiled when I read ’em.

    #4 in the Amplified Old West Version adds: and no chaw at Sunday meetin’ unless yer fixin’ t’ swaller it. 😆

    Thanks for passing this along!

    (yes I made that up – my apologies, Moses)

  3. Phil,

    I worked with a preacher who was a boots kinda guy for Sunday church. I’m from the city–and it took some gettin’ used to. (Like how I’m a-keepin’ with the theme?)

    What does the rest of the Amplified Version say?? 🙂
