• 1. I am the Lord, thou God. I set you free in Egypt. Thou shall not worship any false gods b4 me nor any idols...basically no idolatry 2. Thou shall not say the Lord's name in vain.
  • First: Give our Creator exclusive devotion “You must never have any other gods against my face.” Second: Do not use images in worship “You must not make for yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or that is on the earth underneath or that is in the waters under the earth. You must not bow down to them nor be induced to serve them.”
  • I know the 1st four commandments are for your relationship with God the rest are for your relationship with man. 1. Love God with all your heart and soul. 2. Worship HIM only. 3. do not take his name in vain. 4. Keep the Sabbath{day of rest} holy.
  • The so called 10 commandments are not a collection of 10 clearly numbered do’s and don’ts in the Bible. They are derived from 16 verses in Exodus 20:2–17. These are restated, almost verbatim, in Deuteronomy 5:6–21, except that the tenth verse which gives the reason behind the Sabbath is totally different in both lists (one says because God rested on the seventh day after creation while the other refers to the deliverance from the pharaoh of Egypt.) Why the list is repeated and why one item is totally different, is that the work of God, the scribes or the copyists are questions you might have your own answers to. The 16 verses have been filtered down to 12 statements/commands. Different religions/denominations have then divided the 12 statements/commands into 10 groups in their own ways to arrive at the slightly different sets of 10 commandments. The first and second commandments are derived from different combinations of the first four of the 12 statements/commands numbered 1 to 4 below 1 - I am the Lord your God 2 - You shall have no other gods before me 3 - You shall not make for yourself an idol 4 - You shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God The first commandment then for the Jews is 1, for the orthodox churches 1 and 2, for the RC church 1and 2 and 3 while for most other churches it is 2. These other churches regard 1 as a statement rather than a commandment. The second commandment for the Jews is 2 and 3, for the orthodox churches 3, for the RC church 4 while for most other churches it is 3.
  • most of these answers are pretty correct the most important 2 commandments are derived from the 10 commandments. the first 5 are your relationship with God and can be summed up by your God with all your heart and soul and mind... the second 5 commandments are your relationship with your fellow man... and can be summed up your neighbor( and enemy) as much as you love yourself, and the golden rule. in these two commandments sums up the law and the bible and all religious and moral teachings
  • 1. I am always right. 2. If I am wrong, you misunderstood me.
  • Thou shalt love the Lord with all thy heart, soul strength and might, and love thy neighbor as thyself. These, Jesus said (in the book of Matthew. I can try to find the verses if you like) were the "greatest commandments".
  • not sure, id have to look it up
