Didnt I reference those verses? Im sorry, I
thought I had.
What I noticed is that those verses mention
the ten statements of the covenant, not ten
commands. As a legal document, the covenant
has its first statement identifying the
parties to it. Then I read this particular
legal document as having nine commands
following its introductory statement.
I met some Orthodox Jews who divided the ten
statements even as I just mentioned, and I
made the supposition that all Jews so divided
