Breaking the 10th Commandment

Tradition states there are 613 commandments in Mosaic Law.

Somehow, the translators who worked for King James in 1604 decided to pare those laws down into what we refer to as the Ten Commandments.

For many, like me, I suppose that in itself is a blessing. Keeping 10 laws can be a daunting task so I can only imagine if I had to remember and adhere to 603 more.

It’s reminiscent of one of the Lemony Snicket books, The Vile Village, where the Baudelaire children are forever breaking laws because there are so many they cannot remember them.
