I’ll bet there were only like 3 commandments until Moses’ wife got involved.
Like actually, like there were like, 640 per the Dead Sea Scrolls. Like that was, when Moses joined like, the Republicans, & like wanted to like control, like of everyone's personal behavior. After it was like, condensed to like 10, another should like be added, to refrain from like filling pauses, with such words as "like, you know" & other repetitive discourse annoying language trends. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife without consent of all parties. Thou shalt not kill unless protecting oneself & others. Tho shalt not steal unless its land belonging to another peoples. Blah blah blah.
I always felt the god of the OT overlooked some really good ideas to base commandments on. For example, instead of that ridiculous adultery one (because there are far worse things to worry about than adultery), I have a better one in mind- thou shalt not act like thine horse's ass. The christian fundies could have really benefitted from that one, as most of them are, well, a horse's ass. Good post.
