“Remember the Sabbeth day, to keep it holy."

“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidseruant."

Notice anything wrong? If so, you're off to a better start than the company that built the new Ten Commandments monument for Oklahoma's state Capitol -- they misspelled Sabbath as "Sabbeth" and "maidservant" as "maidseruant."

Republican State Rep. Mike Ritze, whose family paid about $10,000 for the 6-foot-tall monument's construction, said the company has accepted full responsibility and will fix the typos this weekend, the Associated Press reported.

"It's a simple fix,” he told the Oklahoman.

The privately-funded monument was installed on the Capitol grounds Thursday, three years after legislation authorizing it passed with bipartisan support. The Ritze family has agreed to pay all maintenance costs.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Oklahoma told the newspaper it is weighing whether to mount a constitutional challenge to the monument.
