The Ten Commandments and the Mosaic Covenant


    The terms of the Mosaic Covenant were summarized in the Ten Commandments that were etched on the tablets of stone for Moses by God on Mount Sinai:

        Deuteronomy 4:13 - He [the Lord] declared to you His covenant, the Ten Commandments, which He commanded you to follow and then wrote them on two stone tablets.

   The Ten Commandments were given specifically to the Nation of Israel.

        Exodus 34:27-28 - Then the LORD said to Moses, "Write down these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel." . . . And He [the Lord] wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant-- the Ten Commandments.
