The Ten Commandments, as contained in the Holy Bible, are a set of Laws handed to Moses by God on Mount Horeb (same as Mount Sinai) to guide the conduct of Israel at the time.
Over time, they have evolved to what may be regarded as Universal Moral Law or Natural Law, not just to guide the conduct of Christians in particular, but also of humanity in general. They can be found in the Bible books of Exodus (chapter 20) and Deuteronomy (chapter 5).
Moses was commanded by God to translate the commandments he received from mount Sinai into 50 languages, because at that point of time there were 50 langauges spoken on the face of the earth.
Following is a list of the Ten Commandments:
- Thou shall have no other gods before Me.
- Thou shall not make/worship idols.
- Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
- Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
- Honor thy father and thy mother.
- Thou shall not kill.
- Thou shall not commit adultery.
- Thou shall not steal.
- Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
- Thou shall not covet.
