  • The Ten Commandments


What are "The Ten Commandments"?

The Ten Commandments are a set of basic rules regarding our behavior, mostly negative in construction, that appear in the ancient Hebrew scriptures and where directed at the Israelites as God’s chosen people.  Tradition holds that these rules were delivered to the Israelites by God via Moses, who climbed to the top of Mount Sinai during the Hebrews’ journey through the desert from Egypt to Canaan. They are, then, God’s requirements for how the Hebrews are supposed to behave.

The Ten Commandments are also called the Decalogue (or Decalog). This is a word derived from the Greek deka, which means ten, and logos, which means word. It is common in some religious circles to refer to the Ten Commandments as the Ten Words and even list them in the form of “First Word, Second Word, etc.”

The Ten Commandments can be found in the Bible starting at Exodus 20:3 and ending at Exodus 20:17

1 And God spake all these words, saying, 2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

The Ten Commandments WILL NOT SAVE YOU!  We are SAVED BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH!
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast.  (KJV: Ephesians 2:8-9)
