The Ten Suggestions

(Not Commandments)


It was Moses who led the Jews out of slavery in Egypt and into the desert where he gave them the Ten Commandments. (The Eleventh Commandment -- "Find water!" -- is no longer in effect.) Extremely Reform Jews maintain that they were not really "Commandments" at all but just "Suggestions," and that Moses looked very dehydrated when he delivered them.

  1. I am the Lord thy God and thou shalt have not too many other Gods besides me.

  2. Thou shalt make no graven images. This is a major religion, not a shop class.

  3. Thou shalt not take the name of Adonai thy God® in vain without the express written consent of Adonai thy God®. The name "Adonai thy God®" is the sole property of Adonai thy God®. Any use of the name of Adonai thy God® without the express written consent of Adonai thy God® is unauthorized and illegal and shall be punished by Adonai thy God®.

  4. Remember the Sabbath, thy squash game and thy other appointments.

  5. Honor thy single parent.

  6. Thou shalt not kill a man in Reno just to watch him die.

  7. Thou shalt not commit adultery and then run for office.

  8. Thou shalt not steal. (Note: Not really applicable to car radios.)

  9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor when appearing before Judge Judy.

  10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, his servants, his flocks, or his powertools.
