Ten Commandments of Masonry
by Albert Pike
Masonry has its decalogue, which is a law to its Initiates. These are the Ten Commandments:
I. God is the Eternal, Omnipotent, Immutable WISDOM and Supreme INTELLIGENCE and Exhaustless Love.
II. Thy religion shall be, to do good because it is a pleasure to thee, and not merely because it is a duty.
III. Thou shalt unceasingly war against vice!
IV. Thou shalt honor thy parents!
V. Thou shalt charish thy wife and thy children!
VI. Thy friend shall be to thee a second self!
VII. Thou shalt avoid and flee from insincere friendships!
VIII. Thou shalt allow no passions to become thy master!
IX. Thou shalt hear much: Thou shalt speak little: Thou shalt act well!
X. Thou shalt study to know men; that thereby thou mayest learn to know thyself!
But the great commandment of Masonry is this: "A new commandment give I unto you: that ye love one another! He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, remaineth still in the darkness."
Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1871, PP. 17-18
