The Decalogue 
(The Ten Words) (Exodus 20:1-16, Abridged from the NJB)

Then Elohim spoke all these words. He said,  "I am Yahweh your Elohim who brought you out of Egypt, where you lived as slaves. I act with faithful love towards thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

{*} You shall have no other rivals to me.

{*} You shall not make yourself a carved image or any likeness of anything in heaven above or on earth or beneath or in the waters under the earth.  You shall not bow down to them or serve them.

{*} You shall not misuse the name of Yahweh your Elohim, for Yahweh will not leave unpunished anyone who misuses his name.

{*} Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy. For six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath for Yahweh your Elohim. You and anyone living with you shall do no work that day.  For in six days Yahweh made the heavens, earth and sea and all that these contain, but on the seventh day he rested; that is why Yahweh has blessed the Sabbath day and made it sacred.

{*} Honor your father and your mother so that you may live long in the land that Yahweh your Elohim is giving you.

{*} You shall not murder.

{*} You shall not commit adultery.

{*} You shall not steal.

{*} You shall not give false evidence against your neighbor.

{*} You shall not set your heart on your neighbor’s house or on your neighbor’s spouse nor any of your neighbor’s possessions


The Greatest Commandments 
(Matthew 22:36-40, from the NJB)

Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Torah?

{*} You must love Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the greatest and the first commandment.

{*} You must love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.



{*} What is sin?  Disobedience to Yahweh Elohim or his Law.

{*} What else is sin?  Failure to love Elohim, love our neighbors, love ourselves.

{*} What else is sin?  Failure to forgive Elohim, our neighbors or ourselves.

{*} What can cancel all sin and restore us to a right relationship with Elohim? Claiming our right to forgiveness through Yahshua’s blood, then asking and receiving forgiveness from Elohim, our neighbors we have injured and ourselves; finally, with Yahweh’s help, restraining ourselves from again committing sin.

King David’s Prayer
(Psalm 51, excerpted from the NJB)

{*} Have mercy on me, O Elohim, in your faithful love, in your great tenderness wipe away my offences; wash me clean from my guilt, purify me from my sin.  For I am well aware of my offences, my sin is constantly in mind. Remember, I was born guilty, a sinner from the moment of conception.

{*} But you delight in sincerity of heart, and in secret you teach me wisdom.  Purify me with hyssop till I am clean; wash me till I am whiter than snow.  Let me hear the sound of joy and gladness, and the bones you have crushed will dance.

{*} Turn away your face from my sins, and wipe away all my guilt.  Elohim, create in me a clean heart, renew within me a resolute spirit; do not thrust me away from your presence; do not take away from me your spirit of holiness.

{*} Give me back the joy of your salvation; sustain in me a generous spirit. And I shall teach the wicked your paths, and sinners will return to you.

The Cleansing of the Temple
(John 2:13-22, Mark 11:15-19) 

When the time of the Passover was near Yahshua went up to Jerusalem, and in the Temple he found people selling cattle and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers sitting there.  Making a whip out of cord, he drove them all out of the Temple, sheep and cattle as well, scattered the money changers' coins, knocked their tables over and said to the dove sellers, "Take all this out of here and stop using my Father's house as a market." Then his disciples remembered the words of scripture: I am eaten up with zeal for your house. (Psalm 69:9) 

   The Jews intervened and said, "What sign can you show us that you should act like this?"  Yahshua answered, "Destroy this Temple, and in three days I will raise it up."  The Jews replied, "It has taken forty-six years to build this Temple: are you going to raise it up again in three days?"  But he was speaking of the Temple that was his body, and when Yahshua rose from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the scripture and what he had said.
