An even more abbreviated summary of the Ten Commandments (see Exodus 20). This time I went for the ones that are most elaborated on.

My rationale for that was that the main purpose of this chapter is to remind the Israelites of the need for obedience to the covenant. I needed to get that emphasis.

As always, do feel free to post what you think I should have done below.


really short


A reminder that the 10 Commandments were given for us....3 It was not with our ancestors[a] that the Lord made this covenant, but with us, with all of us who are alive here today.
