Panca Sila (The Five Precepts) in The Pali Canon

In some suttas only the first four precepts are mentioned, whereas all five precepts are described together in other suttas. The first four precepts are pakati-sila whereas the fifth precept is pannati-sila. Venerable Nyanatiloka explains in his Buddhist Dictionary that pakati-sila [is] natural or genuine morality, [which] is distinct from those outward rules of conduct laid down for either laymen or monks. Those latter are the so-called prescribed morality (pannatti-sila).
Suttas which include The Five Precepts are listed.
