The Ten Commandments

 

 

 

The 10 Commandments -

 God's Revelation in the Old Testament

 at Exodus, Chapter 20.

They were given directly by God to the people of Israel

 at Mount Sinai after He had delivered them from slavery in Egypt:


"And God spoke all these words, saying: 

'I am the LORD your God

 



ONE: 

'You shall have no other gods before Me.'

 

Father set my eyes on You

In everything I do,

It is Only You that I adore

The Only God that's true.

 



TWO:

 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--

any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, 

or that is in the earth beneath, 

or that is in the water under the earth.'

 

With anything My hands create,

Let it be to give honor to Thee...

If from this earth or heavens above,

Its with Glory for My Father to see.

 



THREE:

 'You shall not take the name 

of the LORD your God in vain.'

 

If through my lips Your name shall pass

Let it be with righteousness and Love...

Not bending Your words or distorting Your truth

But Glory to My Lord God above.

 



FOUR:

 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.'

 

Let me treat each day as the Sabbath

Keep it Holy in Your sight.

Not climb to preach a sermon

Thinking I am the only one that's right.

 



FIVE: 

'Honor your father and your mother.'

 

Let me Honor My Father and Mother, Lord

Your precious Gifts to Me.

Not use or parade their frailties

To make others feel they owe me Pity.



SIX:

 'You shall not murder.'

 

Never take a life I know,

Nor murder the reputation of a Man.

By doing this ,  sparing physical death,

It is still Murder  I understand.



SEVEN: 

'You shall not commit adultery.'

 

Sometimes in just a thought or deed

In the minds of all mankind...

Its not just the act of adultery

But the lust within their mind.



EIGHT:

 

 'You shall not steal.'

 

No need to Steal  but Only Give...

This is how I have chosen to Live...

I freely would give of the gifts you have given me

For nothing is mine to own...

The talents, the words the essence of beauty

Comes from you alone.



NINE:

 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'

 

They say in Truth One is set free..

So hard for some to understand.

Twisted truths,  hidden among the lie...

Is such the ways of man.

 

Scriptures out of context, 

Aimed to cause such pain

Painted As the Word of God

Yet merely Blasphemies taken in vain.



TEN:

 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house;

 you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, 

nor his male servant, nor his female servant, 

nor his ox, nor his donkey,

 nor anything that is your neighbor's.'

 

If You love Your neighbor as Yourself

And Your Lord God 

With your whole heart and soul ...

Happily you would give to your neighbor

Your friendship more precious then gold.

The 10 Commandments - Christ's Summation in the New Testament


About 1,400 years later, 

the 10 Commandments were summed up in the 

New Testament at Matthew 22, 

when Jesus was confronted by the religious 

"experts" of the day:

"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" 

Jesus replied:

 "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and 

with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. 

And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' 

 

All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments

(Matthew 22:36-40).
