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