The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments need no introduction.

They are the founding laws of the Torah and also form part of Christianity and Islam.

Its safe to say that their appeal is universal and that is why they have stood the test of time.

They really dont need repitition but for the sake of completeness, they are reproduced below together with a Documentary on the story of Moses and the Exodus during which they were handed down by God to the Israelites according to the Torah and Old Testament.
