The Ten Commandments are listed in Exodus 20:3-23 and Deuteronomy 5:6–21. Interestingly, neither of these passages calls this list the Ten Commandments (although the phrase is used in Exodus 34:28, Deuteronomy 4:13, and Deuteronomy 10:4). The Ten Commandments are:
- Do not have any other gods.
- Do not worship idols.
- Do not use God’s name wrongly.
- Keep the Sabbath day holy.
- Honor your parents (there is a promise of blessing if we do)
- Do not murder
- Do not commit adultery
- Do not steal
- Do not lie (give false testimony)
- Do not covet
When asked which command was the greatest, Jesus said we should love God fully; the second greatest is to love others as much as ourselves. He concluded by saying everything else hinges on these two principles of loving God and loving others.
