Are the so called, '10 commandments' an error of man? I've heard and studied that they should be called, 'The Words of God'. If they should be called the 'Words of God' and that they aren't 10, but 9? What is the reason man has distorted this? Exodus 20:1-17Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 20 Then God said all these words: א 2 “I am Adonai your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the abode of slavery. ב 3 “You are to have no other gods before me. 4 You are not to make for yourselves a carved image or any kind of representation of anything in heaven above, on the earth beneath or in the water below the shoreline. 5 You are not to bow down to them or serve them; for I, Adonai your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sins of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but displaying grace to the thousandth generation of those who love me and obey mymitzvot. ג 7 “You are not to use lightly the name of Adonai your God, because Adonai will not leave unpunished someone who uses his name lightly. ד 8 “Remember the day, Shabbat, to set it apart for God. 9 You have six days to labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Shabbat for Adonai your God. On it, you are not to do any kind of work — not you, your son or your daughter, not your male or female slave, not your livestock, and not the foreigner staying with you inside the gates to your property. 11 For in six days, Adonai made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them; but on the seventh day he rested. This is why Adonaiblessed the day, Shabbat, and separated it for himself. ה 12 “Honor your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land which Adonaiyour God is giving you. ו 13 “Do not murder. ז (14) “Do not commit adultery. ח (15) “Do not steal. ט (16) “Do not give false evidence against your neighbor. י 14 (17) “Do not covet your neighbor’s house; do not covet your neighbor’s wife, his male or female slave, his ox, his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” I'm seeing 9. 2 is just explaining 1.
