  • Brenni Veit on Exodus 1 - 1 year ago
    Are there really 10 Commandments in the Bible? (I've been asked to prove this.) The rules are: I have to use an "unadulterated," KING JAMES VERSION. I have to find exactly 10.

    This friend says that there are 15 (in Deuteronomy), but "10" do not exist anywhere.

    I have been witnessing to this paper editor for years;

    Anyone know? THX!

    Yes Brenni. There are only Ten Commandments given by God into the hand of Moses at Mt. Sinai. Exodus 34:27,28 confirms this number. There may be some who view the Ten Commandments in a different way, i.e. grouping of verses together, or separating them to form other commands, but if you look at Exodus 20:1-17, the Ten Commandments that we see here are listed in these ten verses: 3, 4, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17.

    If your friend is seeing Fifteen Commandments, maybe he can share the verses, as I have done. You may find that he either includes other verses or adds some that are not listed there. In any case, he will have to give you his references to show the extra five.
