10 Commandments 613 Laws


Even when the rabbis tried to compile a list of the 613 commandments, they encountered a number of difficulties: In the end, however, the concept of the 613 commandments prevailed among observant Jews as normative, and today it is still common to refer to the global system of commandments in the Torah as the «613 commandments.» Even among those who do not accept this literally, it is considered accurate. [Citation needed] The Talmud notes that the Hebrew numerical value (gematria) of the word Torah is 611, and the combination of the commandments of Moses 611 with the first two of the Ten Commandments, which were the only ones heard directly by God, gives 613. [7] The Talmud attributes the number 613 to Rabbi Simlai, but other classical ways that support this view are Rabbi Simeon ben Azzai[8] and Rabbi Eleazar ben Yose of the Galileans. [9] He is quoted in Midrash Shemot Rabbah 33:7, Bamidbar Rabbah 13:15-16; 18:21 and Talmud Yevamot 47b. Although the Bible actually has 613 commandments, the Ten Commandments (עשרת הדברות), also known as the Decalogue or Aseret HaDibrot (Ten Proverbs) in Hebrew, have always held a unique place in Jewish practice. The Torah tells us that God gave the Ten Commandments to the Israelite nation when they gathered at Mount Sinai to receive the Torah, an event we remember on Shavuot. 1. Know that there is a God.
