 Decalogue
      n : the biblical commandments of Moses [syn: Ten Commandments]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Decalogue
    the name given by the Greek fathers to the ten commandments;
    "the ten words," as the original is more literally rendered (Ex.
    20:3-17). These commandments were at first written on two stone
    slabs (31:18), which were broken by Moses throwing them down on
    the ground (32:19). They were written by God a second time
    (34:1). The decalogue is alluded to in the New Testament five
    times (Matt. 5:17, 18, 19; Mark 10:19; Luke 18:20; Rom. 7:7, 8;
    13:9; 1 Tim. 1:9, 10).
      These commandments have been divided since the days of Origen
    the Greek father, as they stand in the Confession of all the
    Reformed Churches except the Lutheran. The division adopted by
    Luther, and which has ever since been received in the Lutheran
    Church, makes the first two commandments one, and the third the
    second, and so on to the last, which is divided into two. "Thou
    shalt not covet thy neighbour's house" being ranked as ninth,
    and "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife," etc., the
    tenth. (See COMMANDMENTS.)
