Ten Commandments Biblical Verses & Commandments Reference

Orthodox Christian Ten Commandments

Unlike most other churches the Eastern Orthodox Christian church does not combine the first two commandments (as follows):

I am the Lord your God. You shall not make for yourselves any idols

The Orthodox church considers these two to be separate commandments, as illustrated by the churche's version of the Ten Commandments below.

  1. I am the Lord your God
  2. You shall not make for yourself an idol
  3. Do not take the name of the Lord in vain
  4. Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy
  5. Honor your father and mother
  6. You shall not kill/murder
  7. You shall not commit adultery
  8. You shall not steal
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
  10. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife
