2 The Lord our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.3 The Lord made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day.4 The Lord talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire,5 (I stood between the Lord and you at that time, to shew you the word of the Lord: for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying,6 I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me.8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.11 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.12 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee.13 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:14 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.15 And remember that thou was a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the Lord thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.16 Honour thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.17 Thou shalt not kill.18 Neither shalt thou commit adultery.19 Neither shalt thou steal.20 Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour.21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's. Deuteronomy 5: 2 - 21

 O nations of the world, these are the Commandments, Statutes, and laws of The Lord Thy God.

These are the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that you may obey and learn them, keep and do them.

 

The Lord our loving God talked face to face with our family members of the past, Some say it was on Mount Sinai however evidence is clear it was on Mount Jabel el Laws in Saudi Arabia. (See Google Earth evidence here) His voice came out of and in the midst of a ferocious fire,

 

(Moses stood between the Lord and our forefathers at that time, to show us all the commanded word of the Lord: All our family members obeyed and agreed. They were very afraid by reason of God's ferocious fire, and they all refused to go up into the mount;)

The Lord your Father God  himself said,

I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. You shalt have no other gods/idols before me. You shall not make yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:

With his own hand, he then wrote on two stone tablets...

You shall not bow down or kneel thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God,  visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

And showing mercy unto thousands of them who love me

and keep my commandments.

 

You shalt not take the name of the Lord your God in vain:

for the Lord will not hold you guiltless

if you take his name in vain.

 

Keep the sabbath

day to sanctify it, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee.

 

 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:

 

But the seventh day is the sabbath day of the Lord your God:

in it, you shalt not do any work, you, not your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass,  nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates;  that your manservant and your maidservant may rest as well as you.

 

And remember that your family members of the past were all servants in the land of Egypt and that the Lord your God brought you all out safely With his mighty hand and by his outstretched arm: therefore, the Lord your God now insists you all keep the sabbath day holy.

Honor thy father and thy mother, as the Lord your God hath commanded thee; that your days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

You shalt not kill.

 

Neither shalt you commit adultery.

 

Neither shalt you steal.

Neither shalt you bear false witness against thy neighbor.

Neither shalt you desire thy neighbor's wife, neither shalt you covet your neighbor's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or anything that is your neighbor's.

 

These words the Lord spake unto all your assembly in the mount

out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more.

 

And he wrote the laws on two tablets of stone,

and Moses delivered them up unto us.

And it came to pass when they all heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders; And it was you who said,  Behold, the Lord our God hath showed us his glory and his greatness,  and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: We have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.

Now therefore why should we die? For this great fire will consume us:  if we hear the voice of the Lord our God anymore, then we shall die. For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?

Go you near, and hear all that the Lord our God shall say:

and speak you unto us all that the Lord our God shall speak unto you, and we will hear it, and do it. And the Lord heard the voice of your words when you spake unto me; and the Lord said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people,  which they have spoken unto you: They have well said all that they have spoken. O that there was such a heart in them,  that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children forever! Go say to them, Get you into your tents again. But as for you, stand you here by me, and I will speak unto you all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which you shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.

You shall all observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. You shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God hath commanded you, that you may live, and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you shall possess.

Now, these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgmments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that you may do them in the land whither you go to possess:

 

That thou will fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command, you, and your son, and your son's son,  all the days of thy life; and that your days may be prolonged. Hear, therefore, O World, and see you do it; that it may be well with you all, and that you may increase mightily,  as the Lord God of your fathers hath promised, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.

 

Hear, O World: The Lord our God is one Lord: And you shalt love the Lord your God with all your heart,  and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

 

And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in your hearts: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in your homes,

and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon your mind,  and they shall be as hairs between your eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of your house, and on your gates. And it shall be when the Lord thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he swore unto your fathers, Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give you great and goodly cities, which thou builds not, And houses full of all good things, which thou filled not, and wells dug, which thou dug not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou planted not; when thou shalt have eaten and been full; Then beware lest thou forget the Lord,  which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

 

Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. Ye shall not go after other gods or the leaders of the people which are round about you;

 

(For the Lord thy God is a jealous God among you)

lest the anger of the Lord thy God be kindled against you,

and destroy you from off the face of the earth.

You shall not tempt the Lord your God, as you tempted him in Massah. You shall diligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee. And you shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the Lord: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers. To cast out all your enemies from before thee, as the Lord hath spoken. And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying,

 

What does it mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord our God hath commanded you?

Then you shalt say unto thy son,  We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt, and the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand: And the Lord showed us signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:nAnd he brought us out from thence,

that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.

And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. And it shall be our righteousness if we observe to do all these commandments before the Lord our God, as he hath commanded us.

Later in the New Testament, the disciples of Jesus asked
the following question...


Master, what is the greatest commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him...


"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,

and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

This is the first and greatest commandment.

And the second is like, unto it,

 

Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets".
