Liz, in view of what David and Harold have written, can you substantiate 
this from a number of English Bible translations? Of the 18 English 
versions at Bible Gateway, all generally Protestant Christian, 
http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=exodus%2020:5;&version=72; 
nearly all translate "jealous". Only Young's Literal has "zealous", and 
CEV has a periphrastic rendering, as does TEV (not at that site).
