The 10 Commandments
Jewish Ten Commandments

Exodus 20:1-17

Then God said all these words: "I am ADONAI your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the abode of slavery.

Commandment 1

"You are to have no other gods before me.

Commandment 2

You are not to make for yourselves a carved image or any kind of representation of anything in heaven above, on the earth beneath or in the water below the shoreline. You are not to bow down to them or serve them; for I, ADONAI your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sins of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but displaying grace to the thousandth generation of those who love me and obey my mitzvot.

Commandment 3

"You are not to use lightly the name of ADONAI your God, because ADONAI will not leave unpunished someone who uses his name lightly.

Commandment 4

"Remember the day, Shabbat, to set it apart for God. You have six days to labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Shabbat for ADONAI your God. On it, you are not to do any kind of work -not you, your son or your daughter, not your male or female slave, not your livestock, and not the for eigner staying with you inside the gates to your property. For in six days, ADONAI made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them; but on the seventh day he rested. This is why ADONAI blessed the day, Shabbat, and separated it for himself.

Commandment 5

"Honor your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land which ADONAI your God is giving you.

This list is from the Complete Jewish Bible which is translated by Dr. David H. Stern

Sometimes the Ten Commandments are referred to as Jewish even though if one was to refer to them according to a certain nationality describing them as Israel's Ten Commandments would be more accurate. The reason the Ten Commandments are not exclusively Jewish is that when the Ten Commandments were given as part of the Old Covenant at Mt. Sinai they were given to the elders of all of Israel, not just the tribe of Judah. Moses was from the tribe of Levi, not Judah, therefore Moses was not Jewish. The term Jewish is actually a shortened form of Judean. Today it is misused to refer to the ancestors of Judah even though ancestors are not named by their descendants. Many times Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are called Jewish even though there was no such thing as a Jew until Jacob's son Judah had descendants. In the Old Testament prior to the time of the captivity, Judean or Jewish can only refer to the tribe of Judah or sometimes all the tribes in the southern kingdom. Jewish can also those living in the land of Judea or to the pharisees. Many Jews claim to be living under the covenant given at Mt. Sinai. However that covenant is disappearing according to Hebrews 8:13. "in the saying `new,' He hath made the first old, and what doth become obsolete and is old is nigh disappearing." Today God only enters into the New Covenant with those elect ones who have been born of God and are believing (1 John 5:1). Instead of being written on tables of stone, for those in the New Covenant the law is written on the heart. Hebrews 8:10 "because this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel, after those days, saith the Lord, giving My laws into their mind, and upon their hearts I will write them, and I will be to them for a God, and they shall be to Me for a people;"

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”And Joshua commanded the officers of the people, “Pass through the midst of the camp and command the people, ‘Prepare your provisions, for within three days you are to pass over this Jordan to go in to take possession of the land that the LORD your God is giving you to possess.’”

Genesis 22:1-3
After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here am I.” He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.
