A Word for Thought...
Moses: Covenant and Commandments
At Mount Sinai God made a covenant not with an individual this time (as with Abraham) but instead with a nation, establishing it as "a kingdom of priests and a holy nation" (Exodus 19:6). He promised to bless and protect them, and they in turn agreed to serve and obey him. God then gave Moses his laws for them to live by, the heart of which was "The Ten Commandments" (Exodus 20:1-17; Deuteronomy 5:6-21). These were unpacked and supplemented by other laws covering every aspect of life - religious, social, dietary, economic and moral - found in the books of Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy.
While we might see these laws as long list of "do's and don'ts", the Old Testament doesn't see it like that. In fact, the Hebrew word for "Law" - Torah - means instruction, guidance or direction. In other words, God's "Law" was not seen as a big stick hanging over people, but rather as his practical guidance on how to get the best out of life.
