4:15 Watch yourselves very carefully, since you did not see any image on the day that God spoke to you out of the fire at Horeb.
Venishmartem me'od lenafshoteychem ki lo re'item kol-temunah beyom diber Adonay aleychem beChorev mitoch ha'esh.
4:16 You shall therefore not become corrupt and make a statue depicting any symbol. [Do not make] any male or female image,
Pen-tashchitun va'asitem lachem pesel tmunat kol-samel tavnit zachar o nekevah.
