Ten-Commandments- To-Remember-and-Follow-For-Life-Time

The Ten Commandments are a set of commandments which God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai to serve as principles of moral behavior for the human civilization.
Here is the list of  Ten Commandments from Exodus 20:2-17

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make idols.
  3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
  5. Honor your father and your mother.
  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet.


I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.
We should love, honor, respect and trust in God so much that He alone is the supreme authority. We should not believe or fall for false gods and goddesses.

You shall not make for yourself a carved image any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
We should not make or worship any statue. God loves us so much that He is jealous of our love and does not want  us to bow down to any meaningless idols nor serve them.

You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
We should fear, love and respect God in his Holy name. We should not use his name for any curse, swear, lie, witchcraft etc.We can pray, praise and give thanks.

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
We need to take special time for Holy purpose so we can draw nearer to God. We should draw closer to our God on Sabbath day as a time of rest and spiritual rejuvenation.

Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
Children must obey their parents, hold them in love and esteem. They should not provoke them to anger, but give them honor and serve them.

Thou shall not murder
God had given life to us and he alone has the authority to take it back. Taking another person's life is not our right. We should not hurt nor harm anyone. Killing any person is considered murder. We must learn to control our tempers. We should be kind,help and spread the Love.

Thou shall not commit adultery
Adultery is nothing but sleeping with someone else’s spouse, unmarried people, prostitution or a spouse cheating on their partner. We should express our love with our partner only.  Love and honor your spouse.

Thou shall not steal
We should not steal our neighbor’s money, goods or any property. We should also not cheat people to earn money or property. We should not do any criminal activities.

Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor
We should not say anything false against our neighbor , we should not lie, betray, slander, nor defame our neighbor. be with them, defend them, support them.

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s
Coveting means desire for something which is not rightfully ours. We should not have a desire on anything which belongs to others. Should not have lust after a woman or a man in your heart. Should not have a desire on anything which is not ours either it is a property or any animal.
