Don't think we've done this:

Question: How many commandments are there in the Old Testament?

There are actually about 14-17 mentioned in Exodus:

1 You shall have no other gods before me.
2 You shall not make for yourself a graven image...
3 You shall not bow down to them or serve them...
4 Show mercy on those that love me...
5 You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain...
6 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
7 Six days you shall labor...
8 On the seventh day you shall not do any work...
9 Honor your father and your mother...
10 You shall not kill.
11 You shall not commit adultery.
12 You shall not steal.
13 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
14 You shall not covet your neighbor's house
Also, no coveting of his wife, man-servant, maid-servant, ox, ass or anything else.

But various different religions group some of them to make 10.

But that's not the only problem, after these first dozen or so, he then goes on for another 3 pages in my KJV. This gives a total of 613 commandments including:

If an ox should gore a man or woman such that they die, the ox will surely be stoned to death.

You shall not suffer a witch to live

Three times you shall keep a feast unto me in the year

You shall never vex a stranger

Whomsoever "lies with a beast" shall surely be put to death

s: KJV
