What Are The 10 Commandments?
They are The 10 laws spoken by God and written with His finger.
The picture below shows the abbreviated version of the 10 commandments given to Moses by God on Mount Sinai.
Deuteronomy 5:22 (King James Version)
22. These words the LORD spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.
Exodus 20:1 (King James Version)
1. And God spake all these words, saying,
God wrote these commandments twice. Moses broke the first tablet when he came down off the mountain and saw the Israelites committing idolatry.
Deuteronomy 10:1-4 records God writing on the second tables of stone after He gets Moses to prepare the stones or cut them out.
What Are The 10 Commandments? The first four show love to God and the last six show love to man.
Matthew 22:37-40 (King James Version)
37. Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38. This is the first and great commandment.
39. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
21. Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
