What Are the Ten Commandments in the KJV Bible?

Robert/CC-BY 2.0

The ten commandments in the KJV bible are: “You shall have no other gods before Me,” “you shall not make for yourself a carved image,” “you shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain,” “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy,” “Honor your father and your mother,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor” and “You shall not covet anything that is your neighbor’s.” The KJV bible was created in 1611 after 7 years of work translating the original Hebrew and Greek bible text.

The translation process was performed by scholars who were experts in the languages and, as a result, the King James Bible is the most sold bible in the world. Most of the American presidents were sworn into office when they took their oath with a hand on a King James Bible. There are a little over 788,000 words in the entire King James Bible, including the Old Testament and the New Testament.

The Ten Commandments are an essential part of the religion because they are a direct set of laws that were given from God. It is written in the Bible that God revealed the laws to Moses through a voice and in the form of lightning flashes, trumpet sounds, thunder and a smoking mountain. By following the Ten Commandments, people are better able to follow the rest of the Bible’s guidelines.
