During their few weeks of traveling in the desert, they had been under Divine protection, witnessing daily miracles and their faith in G-d had strengthened. Unanimously, the people answered "Everything G-d has said, we will do". As commanded by G-d through Moses, the people prepared for the third day, when the L-rd was to descend upon Mount Sinai before the eyes of the people. Boundaries were set around the mountain, for they were forbidden to touch or ascend. Dawn of the third day broke amid thunder and lightning.
Heavy clouds hung over the mountain, and with the steadily growing sounds of the Shofar, the ram's horn, the people trembled with fear. Moses led the Children of Israel out of the camp to the foot of Mount Sinai, which was quaking and covered by smoke; G-d had descended upon it in fire.
The sound of the Shofar grew louder, but suddenly all sounds ceased, and an absolute silence ensued; and then G-d proclaimed the Ten Commandments. Later, Moses was to receive two stone tablets inscribed by G-d Himself with the Ten Commandments. Of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other gods beside Me. Make for thyself a graven image. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy G-d in vain.
Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy. Honor thy father and thy mother. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house. The first five Commandments are concerned with the relationship between Man and G-d, while the second five focus on the relationship between Man and his neighbor.
The first five Commandments emphasize faith in G-d, the prohibitions to create any likeness of G-d or take His name in vain and the Commandments to honor the Sabbath and ones parents, who are partners with G-d in the creation of their children. Traditionally in Judaism, special importance is attributed to the Ten Commandments as headings for all the 613 commandments.
The Ten Commandments are read three times during the year in the Synagogue, once during the Reading of the Law, when the "Yithro (Jethro)" Torah portion from the Book of Exodus is read, once when "Va'Ethannan" from Deuteronomy is read and once on the festival of Shavuoth, commemorating the time of the Giving of the Law.
