Tens of commandments comment 000

Another important thing you don't seem to know, is that (for judaism/jews) these commandments are just 10 commandments in 613. They're not really more important, they're just the first (and the only) ones that were spoken to all of the people. What was referred to, by saying that commandments are on a historical basis for US law, may be more about these 613 laws, not just the 10 you referred to. You can look at http://www.jewfaq.org/613.htm for example. Please read the Talmud to see what they really meant with 'law'. And as the previous poster said, there's just one version. The link you put is silly in the sense that it places catholic, protestant and hebrew versions as different but parallel things. That's not right. All the versions are derived from the original one, the hebrew version. That's the incompetence of the scribes that made them different.

Many people hate dubbed films, so why do people argue on transcriptions of transcriptions of transcriptions? Read the original (or at least the oldest version)!
