The Ten Mitzvot of Adoni - a study

During our exodus from the land of Mitzryam, Moshe` led our forefathers to Mount Sinai, where G-d gave to Moshe` the Ten Mitzvot.
This listing is from Exodus, chapter 20; the numbers in parentheses indicate the verse number. The Ten Mitzvot are found restated in Deuteronomy 5:6-21.

Ten Mitzvot

I. (2) I am the Lord thy G-d, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the abode of slavery.

II. (3) Thou shalt 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.

(11) For in six days, Adoni made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them; but on the seventh day He rested. That is why Adoni blessed the day, and seperated it for Himself.

VI. (13) Do not murder.

VII. (14) Do not commit adultery.

VIII. (15) Do not steal.

IX. (16) Do not give false evidence against your neighbour.

X. (17) Do not covet your neighbour's house; do not covet your neighbour's wife, his male or female slave, his ox, his donkey or anything that belongs to your
