10 Commandments Explained Further

10 Commandments explained

The Ten Commandments are explained further here.

1. Trust in God only.

Trust in no one but GOD. People will disappoint you. God created you and has a wonderful plan for your life. He is too good to do wrong, and too wise to make a mistake. Let His peace abide in you. (Proverbs 3 :5-6)

2. Worship God only.

Don’t make your career, your company, or your boss a god. If you do, you will provoke Him to jealously and will end up fighting Him. In fact, He may hinder you from achieving what you want until you are broken of the idolatry. (Exodus 20:5).

3. Use God’s Name Reverently.

Don’t swear!! Clean words come out of a clean heart! If your co-workers know that you are a Christian, but they hear the Lord’s Name used in vain, or cursing and swearing from your mouth, you will give the appearance of being a hypocrite. (Matthew 15:17-19).

4. Work Six Days and Rest on the Seventh.

Before you beg for more vacation time, ask yourself a few questions, “Do you honor the Sabbath?” God has already given you 52 days of time off that equates to seven weeks. “Are your expectations for work, vacation, and retirement realistic?” By resting one day a week, you can avoid burnout. (Genesis 3:17-19).

5. Respect and Obey Your Boss.

You should respect and obey your boss, because you don’t know what it’s like to be in their shoes. Plus, your ultimate boss is the Lord. Serve Him faithfully on the job, and He will bless you. However, if your boss
commands you to do something illegal or immoral, you must make a stand and obey God rather than man. (Ephesians 6:5-8).

6. Protect and Respect Human Life.

Emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual manipulation, abuses and violence have no place in the workplace… or any place. You do not have the right to use and abuse your boss, co-workers, employees, customers, or suppliers. (1 Thessalonians 3:1-2).

7. Be True to Your Spouse.

If you are not getting the kind of attention that you feel you deserve at home, it’s common to seek it with someone at work. Honor your wedding vows by avoiding company romances! They are very tempting, very real, and very common. They are also very wrong and very destructive. (Matthew 19:8-9).

8. Do Not Take What Belongs to Others.

Stealing at work can take many forms. You can choose to steal materials, money, time, productivity , and joy from your employer and others. Do not remove your integrity by stealing. (II Corinthians 7:1-2).

9. Do Not Lie About Others.

Do not fabricate stories about your boss, co-workers, and spread gossip for the sake of company politics. You are here to be the salt and the light, not the pepper and the darkness!! Truth always rises to the surface, and eventually you will be ashamed and rebuked if you lie. (II Peter 2:10-13 ).

10. Be Satisfied With What You Have.

Contentment doesn’t mean that you cannot pursue God-given goals, but it does mean that you are content with what He has provided you with, day after day. Contentment is a rare quality in today’s culture, but it is extremely liberating! Materialism, striving for rank , backstabbing, and discontent lead to emotional, mental, financial, and spiritual bondage. (I Timothy 6:6-11 ).

That concludes all the Ten Commandments from the Bible.

  1. Thats a great job , May GOD bless you
    Because each Person must have to remember the commands that was given by our KING GOD …….


  3. I would like to start off by saying that i had a true life changing experience which i never choose to forget and i sincerely enjoyed reading the proverbs and passages extracted from the bible in such a simple form of language about the ten commandments so that the simplest of souls can truly understand the meaning of our lord’s word and rules that he has chosen for us to follow to live as he would like us to live our lives to that best of our capacities…. I sincerely thank you.

  4. WHAT??? Where is the Honoring your mother & father?? Where did “Respect and Obey Your Boss” come in on #5. It’s about respecting and honoring your “mother & father.”

  5. I think on #5 they are parralelling honor your mother and father to respect and obey your boss. As your mother and father are authority figures so is your boss. I can’t recall where exactly it is in the Bible (I’m thinking Psalms, but I’m probably wrong), but there is a passage where “slaves” are to respect and honor your masters. Masters are to do the same to your slaves. Think of “masters” as your “boss” in today’s society.

  6. The first mistake of the 10 commandments is the first commandment – Do not worship any other Gods.

    That alone says that ther ARE other Gods out there to worship, but this Desert Demon wants you to only worship him.

    But of course, there’s no such thing as a God-head of any sort, just the power of The Force – the same energy that harnessed the atom and governs karma :-)

  7. I know someone that totally professes Jesus as Lord.But at work,HE STEALS! WHEN CONFRONTED HE SAID WITH THE AMOUNT OF WORK HE DOES COMPARED TO THE PAY HE GETS…..THEY OWE HIM!! I told him I belive he is going to be rudely awakened come time to stand before God!!

  8. When it says “no other gods” it uses g not G witch, in the bible, always mean FALSE gods so when He said not to worship them he meant do not worship statues, animals, or other OBJECTS.

  9. The 4th commandment here is not God’s commandment! Here is God’s 4th commandment —
    “Exodus 20:
    8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
    9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
    10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
    11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”

    Please notice the warning for those who tamper with His Commandments

    Deuteronomy 4:
    2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

    Please notice that Sunday in the Bible is referred to as the 1st day of the week. Saturday is the seventh day. No where in the commandment does it say “one day in seven.”
    God blessed the 7th day (Saturday) and made it Holy! It appears that the makers of this web site have forgotten what God said to remember!!

    What did Jesus say about the commandments of men?

    Mark 7:
    7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    I appeal to the readers to Worship God on the day that He blessed and made holy!

  10. I think you did an amazing job here. I am not a Christian (nor do I want to be), and I was just curious what the 10 commandments were. The way you have worded everything here it surpasses Catholicism (sorry if that’s spelled wrong), and just goes into being a good person. Furthermore, they apply to any religion that has a god (or multiple). I liked especially the way you worded do not worship false gods. You didn’t say that all other gods are wrong, and yours was right – which is 1) awesome and 2) respectable. For what it’s worth, I commend you. I feel that you could reach much more than those who follow your religion with this. It doesn’t feel like you are pushing your religion on anyone, which some of the commenters seem to want to do – instead you wrote not about being a good Christian but a good person. Truly wonderful, insightful, and well said.

  11. Ok….Christianity is just what it says. The Christ movement meaning, be a good person. Although Christians do follow the ten commandments, let’s not forget that most of the old testament has very little to do with Christ. Religion is man’s search for God (old testament). Christianity is God’s search for man(New testament). Christians (and I use the term loosely here because we know there are different sects and beliefs) believe that Christ was God incarnate come down for the “human” experience. That is what our salvation was, God understanding the trials and tribulations, and temptations of mankind in order to forgive us our sins.

  12. This is sick.

    After what I experienced in my life (I’m 30 now), all I can write here is that this has nothing to do with GOD but express rotten capitalism, not justice.

    To obey at every time – that is sick.

    There are many controversial accidents that make these commandments useless and out of honor.
    I’ve had to do with many lairs and false friends in my life including “boss – person at work (having lots of fun watching me working and mobbing me” – not once.
    They don’t listen to these commandments.

    These rules are made basically for Jews to keep control after pushing their religion into system and capitalism at the time.

    This is all to keep all others down.
    So called “goy” describes everything.

    This system will fall and there is nothing you can do about it.
    Because the system was created by humans, not GOD.
    GOD has created ecosystem (animals and their law) – not this.
    Every human creation has mistakes.
    Including this.
    Who is your GOD jews?
    Machine with no “heart”? – just made for you to be happy – to feel like gods?.
    What about others?

    I will tell you:

    “You don’t care about others and you proved it not once”. That is why I do not trust you anymore

    Time to finish this nonsense and make you feel the same way – It’s the time to infect you with our pain
    of 10 commandments.

    Because more than many of you do not listen and
    do not care about others – including 10 commandments.

    That’s why.
    Chosen nation – funny thing.
    More funny than having fun especially from Christians that you have made for your slaves by giving them
    a story about Christ as a son of GOD – and then torturing them with your law.

    First of all

    “Start to respect others”
    Not only yourselves.

  13. Honor your father and mother is not honor your boss. You have the commandments as applying to a work situation. The commandments refer to family and life situations but honor your father and mother mean honor your father and mother and it is personal.

  14. One may agree on the honest effort made to keep it simple, but the interpretation made is confusing. One should take absolute care while spreading the word of GOD.

  15. I think 1 should be:

    1. Do not worship other than god

    Cause I like to make mine lean and mean like this too :)

    “the in purple ones”

    To me tho if you take 8. Do not steal, I expanded it like this

    Do not steal
    my life (murder)
    my time (sabbath)
    my mind (lies)
    my love (family)
    my path…

  16. The picture above seems to be incorrect, you see, the commandment “honour your father and mother” is actually categorized under God. This is due to the fact that God is indeed considered one of our parents. You’re welcome.

  17. When God got Mary pregnent, didn’t he brake his own commandment of do not commit adultry. Why didn’t he get an un-married woman pregnent with Jesus? If you think about it God also broke the commandment of covet thy neighbors wife. Just don’t get it.

  18. All I can say is the lord has changed my life and it takes small steps. The ten commandments are in our hearts when u feel your going to to anything at all ur heart and mind tell you its wrong or right that is the easyiest way to follow the ten commandments.
