Even if you have never read the Bible, you probably have heard about the 10 Commandments. 

The Commandments have always been used as a guide by religious people to help them lead a life of love, respecting thy neighbor, and honoring their families.

What are the 10 Commandments?

The 10 Commandments, in the Biblical text, are divine rules or principles relating to ethics and worship that play a fundamental role in Judaism and Christianity.

  • “Thou shalt not commit adultery.” 
  • “Thou shalt not steal.”
