The Ten Commandments - Exodus 20



Keep this list to practice and teach others The Ten Commandments!



1st COMMANDMENT: “I am the Lord thy God...thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

Exodus 20:2-3

Hold up your pointer finger. Look at your finger and say, “There is only ONE God.”


2nd COMMANDMENT: “You shall not make for yourself any carved images...” Exodus 20:4

Hold up two fingers like a peace sign. Look at both fingers and say, “If there is only ONE God, there shouldn’t be two, so I won’t make anymore.”


3rd COMMANDMENT: “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain...”

Exodus 20:7

Hold up three fingers (like a “W” for Wiggins). Say to yourself, “Do not use the Lord’s name in vain,” which refers to Spiritual adultery. **Also, remember Commandment #7


4th COMMANDMENT: “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.”

Exodus 20:10

Hold up four fingers, look at them and say, “Commandment #4: Remember the Sabbath day and set it apart for God, because that’s what it’s there FOUR (for)!”


5th COMMANDMENT: “Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.”

Exodus 20:12

Hold up one hand in a “High-Five” and say, “Honor your father and mother, and you will live long in the land the Lord is giving you.” Then, wave your hand down at about knee-level, like you’re spanking a kid! Because at my home, we were spanked if we disobeyed mom & dad.


6th COMMANDMENT: “Thou shalt not kill.”

Exodus 20:13

Hold up a “High-Five” in one hand and hold up the “pointer finger” of the other. Then, point the pointer finger (like a gun) at your best friend and say, “Don’t commit murder!!!”


7th COMMANDMENT: “Thou shalt not commit adultery.”

Exodus 20:14

Hold up a “High Five” in one hand and a “Peace sign” in the other. Say to yourself, “Don’t commit adultery.” (Relational Adultery) **Remember Commandment #3


8th COMMANDMENT: “Thou shalt not steal.”

Exodus 20:15

Hold up a “High-Five” in one hand and three fingers in the other hand. Say, “Commandment number 8: I stole the bread, and I EIGHT (ate) it!


9th COMMANDMENT: “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.”

Exodus 20:16

Hold up a “High-Five” on one hand and a “High-Four” on the other, and say, “Commandment number Nine: no lying!” “Nine” and “Lying” sort of rhyme…


10th COMMANDMENT: “Thou shalt not covet...”

Exodus 20:17

Hold up two “High-Fives” and say, “Number Ten is the end: We LOVE IT! But we still don’t covet.”
