What are the Commandments - Factual AnswerWhat are the Commandments?

Few people know what are the Commandments, still fewer obey them. Here is an English translation of the original 10 commandments that God gave to Moses on Mount Horab.

I am the Lord your God; you shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make for yourself an idol.
You shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God.
Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.
Honour your father and mother.
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
You shall not covet your neighbour's wife. You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbour.

Sources: The Bible, Exodus chapter 20 verses 2-17, also chapter 34 verses 11-27. There are other matching references in Deuteronomy chapter 5 verses 6-21.

A Modern Version of The 10 Commandments

Compared with modern legislation, or even the small print in any contract, the 10 commandments are crystal clear. Nevertheless, they benefit from modern treatment especially for those who, while less than fully committed to modern religious teachings, feel the 10 commandments have innate worth.

You should not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.
You should not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.
You should not cross bridges before you come to them, for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.
You should face each problem as it comes. You can only handle one at a time anyway.
You should not take problems to bed with you, for they make very poor bedfellows.
You should not borrow other people's problems. They can better care for them than you can.
You should not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy now!
You should be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own. It is hard to learn something new when you are talking, and some people do know more than you do.
You should not become "bogged down" by frustration, for 90% of it is rooted in self-pity and will only interfere with positive action.
You should count thy blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.

The Hillbilly 10 CommandmentsWhat are the 10 Commandments?

No page would be complete without a humorous take on 'What are the Commandments?'.

Here is a Hillbilly view on life's mandates.

Just one God
Put nothin' before God
Watch yer mouth
Git yourself to Sunday meetin'
Honor yer Ma & Pa
No killin'
No foolin' around with another fellow's gal
Don't take what ain't yers
No tellin' tales or gossipin'
Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff

Seems very reasonable say Will and Guy.

I am the Lord your God; you shall have no other gods before me.


But there's Jesus (demigod), Satan (fallen angel), etc. and all the other celestial hierarchy, what do we do about them?


You shall not make for yourself an idol.


Looks up at the crucifix in Church...Damn, we blew that one....


You shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God.


Oh God...oops.


Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.


Does keeping Chik-fil-A closed on Sundays count?


Honour your father and mother.


We have Mother's Day and Father's Day. Good enough?


You shall not murder.


So, no more playing "Spec Ops"?


You shall not commit adultery.


But, if single, we can fool around as much as we want, right?


You shall not steal.


C'mon, a few pens from work should not damn me to Hell....


You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.


Who even knows their neighbor these days?


You shall not covet your neighbour's wife. You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbour.


So, the rake I borrowed is in the same commandment as not doing his wife? C'mon, you just wanted to keep it at an even 10, huh?
