Moses wrote this law, and delivered it to the priests the sons of Levi, who bore the ark of Yahweh’s covenant, and to all the elders of Israel.

Deuteronomy 31:9


Disclaimer

This concordance should not be thought of as a definitive count of the commandments. The count depends on one’s theological and technical view of the Torah. Although Judaism holds that there are 613 commandments, even they admit that there are more than 613 in the Written Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy).1 The number and order of any particular list depends on the purpose of the list. The 613 commandments were identified for the purpose of connecting the Written Torah with the Oral Torah (Talmud, Rabbinic literature, etc.). The goal of this concordance, on the other hand, is to identify and organize the commandments of the Written Torah as comprehensively as possible. The numbers are only for identification and reference.

Furthermore, since the purpose of this concordance is merely for locating and studying the commandments, it is based upon English translations most people are familiar with. In this way, it is accessible to the average Bible student who has little or no knowledge of Hebrew.

It should not be used as a substitute for reading and studying the Torah itself. Each commandment has been described as accurately as possible without inserting any personal bias, but it should be consistently checked against the Torah, especially the Hebrew original. No wording of any commandment contained in this concordance is meant to be a translation of the Hebrew original. Each commandment is described, in our own words, based on English translations. The Hebrew text was consulted only when there was enough difference between varying translations to indicate a discrepancy. In those cases (which were few), the Hebrew text of the Torah was consulted so the commandment could be described and categorized more accurately.

Sources

The New King James version of the Bible was primarily followed for assembling this concordance. However, other translations and versions were consulted when necessary. After the New King James Version, the King James Version, New Living Translation, New International Version, New American Bible, Douay-Reims Bible, and the Stone Edition Tanach were also consulted. Nevertheless, none of these translations were copied word for word.

For commentary, the Chumash edited by J. H. Hertz and The Companion Bible with notes by E. W. Bullinger were used. 5

Introduction

There are presently three main branches of Middle Eastern and Western religion that sprung from Hebrew origins: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam (in that order). Although Islam has its own Scripture, it carries many similarities to Judaism. Nevertheless, the irony is that although Christianity maintained the Jewish Scripture as part of their own, they grew to see it as an Old Testament, a set of God-given laws almost entirely abrogated. Thus for the Muslim the Jewish Scripture (Old Testament) is corrupted; for the Christian it is sacred, but obsolete.

Despite their differences, however, all three of these world religions have one major commonality: their doctrines are all foundationally based on a covenant the Creator made with a man named Abraham, and with a prophet named Moses. Both accounts are recorded in the Jewish Scripture called the Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy). The Torah is the foundation of the entire Jewish Scripture (sometimes called the Hebrew Bible, or the Tanach) and is therefore the foundation of the Christian Scripture as well.

Even though there are some versions of Christianity that view the Old Testament favorably, most of them see the laws as old, brutal, and legalistic. For example, some say the Torah includes food laws because they didn’t have refrigerators; and others may point to death penalties as uncivilized and brutal. Even more, the Protestant reformer John Calvin called the Sabbath day a “superstitious observance.”2

2 John Calvin (translated by Henry Beveridge), Institutes of the Christian Religion, (Grand Rapids, Michigan: Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1989, 1997), p. 341.

3 J. H. Hertz, The Pentateuch and Haftorahs, (London: Soncino Press, 5751-1990) p. 405-406. Also: D. Winton Thomas, Documents from Old Testament Times, (New York: Harper Torchbooks, 1961, 1958 Thomas Nelson), p. 34.


Sadly, because of this perspective, most average believers are unaware that the origins of Christianity are within the Torah. Usually the two are viewed as mutually exclusive. The belief is basically that Jesus gave a new law: to love your neighbor as yourself, to love your enemy, to forgive, and to keep your heart pure, none of which were a part of the Jewish Torah. The truth, however, is that these concepts do indeed originate in the “Old Testament,” the Torah.

As for the barbarity of some of the laws, in point of fact they are far less barbaric than the laws of other nations during that period. The laws of King Hammurabi (who lived around the time of Abraham), for instance, found on stone tablets in Sumer, have striking similarities with those in the Torah, proving its antiquity. Nevertheless, some of the laws of Hammurabi stand in stark contrast to the Torah.

For example, one Hammurabi law states that if a man is guilty of killing someone’s son or daughter, that in return his son or daughter should be killed;3 on the other hand, the Torah forbids this kind of reciprocal punishment (Dt 24:16). Also, the laws of slavery in the Torah are mild compared to those of Europe and America, even within the last couple of centuries of our own time. These are only a couple examples, out of many, that set the Torah in the ancient world but far beyond its time.

Therefore, whether a Christian decides to keep the commandments of the Torah or not, he or she will be enriched by studying it. The Creator commanded the Israelites to meditate on it day and night because it would be their wisdom (Dt 4:6). From the beginning of the Jewish tradition involving the Torah, it has always been about more than a mere set of laws.

The one biblical character that illustrates this best is the famed King Solomon. Renowned for his wisdom, he is recognized in the biblical tradition as being the wisest man who ever lived. The question is: how did he become so wise? Most believe that God supernaturally granted him an understanding heart because of his humble prayer (1 Kings 3:6-14). This may be true, but what did God grant his heart to understand? The Creator already gave the Torah to be their source of wisdom. Carefully examine what Solomon taught as related in the following passage:

He spoke of trees, from the cedar that is in Lebanon even to the hyssop that springs out of the wall; he spoke also of animals, and of birds, and of creeping things, and of fish. There came of all peoples to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, who had heard of his wisdom.”

1 Kings 4:33-34

It is possible that God granted Solomon scientific knowledge of nature far before his time, but for anyone who knows the Torah, the description of Solomon’s wisdom can be easily identified. First, there are laws in the Torah relating to trees, especially when it concerns idolatry; second, cedar and hyssop are prescribed in the Torah for ritual cleansing; and finally, the four groups of creatures listed are detailed in Leviticus chapter eleven as being clean or unclean. Obviously, Solomon was teaching the Torah; God had opened his eyes to profoundly understand the laws. For him, they were no longer merely a bunch of “dos and don’ts;” instead, they became a well-spring of spiritual and natural wisdom.

One example of Solomon’s wisdom illustrates this perfectly. The famous anecdote begins with two women fighting over a child. They came before Solomon’s seat of judgment for the matter to be resolved. The child only belonged to one of these women, and Solomon had to determine the identity of the true mother.

One of the women related the controversy. She said that both of them lived in the same house, and gave birth only three days apart. When the other woman gave birth she rolled over on the child in the night and smothered it, then she switched the dead child for her living child. Since both women claimed the living child, but neither the dead, Solomon commanded that a sword be brought and that the living child be divided between the two women. The true mother was willing to give her son to the dishonest woman to save the child’s life. In this way, Solomon was able to restore the child to its true mother.

On the surface, such a judgment may seem simple and even obvious, but on closer investigation it really carries deep insight. There is nothing in the Torah that would directly apply to this situation. However, it is filled with many requirements on the subject of civil and domestic damages. It should be apparent that Solomon’s cleverness in this matter was a product of the God-given wisdom contained within the jurisprudence of the Torah. For instance, there is a particular law relating to livestock damages that has a similar prescription: 9


If one man’s bull injures another’s, so that it dies, then they shall sell the live bull, and divide its price; and they shall also divide the dead animal.” Exodus 21:35

Although this speaks of dividing the dead animal, instead of the living, it also speaks of dividing the price of the living animal. The principle is to divide what is left between the parties involved. If Solomon had been meditating on the Torah, his mind most certainly recalled this commandment. It was a case of damages. The judgment was clear: divide what remained between the two parties, which naturally led him to the clever solution he became famous for.

Finally, therefore, the goal of this text is not to convince Christians they need to keep the entire Torah, but instead to make it accessible for study.

Using the Chronological Torah Concordance

The Torah contains the laws of the Creator within the context of events during the early history of mankind, and those involving Moses and the Exodus. Thus, they were given through messengers, to certain individuals, and specifically to the nation of Israel. Additionally, many of them are repeated in various places throughout the Torah.

Therefore, in order for The Torah Concordance to be useful in finding and studying the commandments, a system was developed for organization and identification. There are two basic categories of the commandments of the Torah: those that were enjoined for all generations, and those that were not. The Torah Concordance, which may be purchased through the HHLC website, identifies these two categories as the Systematic Order and the Exclusive Order.

Constructing these lists was a painstaking and demanding project. In order to make the job less burdensome, we started by listing all commandments given in the Torah—beginning with Genesis 1:1 and ending with Deuteronomy 34:12—in the order they occur, one after the other, verse by verse (even if it was repeated). This initial list was numbered and called the Chronological Order, using a letter “c” following the entry number to distinguish it from the organized orders: Systematic and Exclusive. It was merely used as a background list for comparison. Having the commandments listed out this way, for instance, made it much easier to gather all requirements concerning loving your neighbor into one place, or those related to idolatry into its own place, etc.

In the first printing of The Torah Concordance, the Chronological Order was included at the back of the book. However, for various reasons we decided to remove it. One of the main reasons is that it was misleading for the beginning student; the size of the book made it appear that the Torah contains far more commandments than it actually does. Also, the only real purpose of the Chronological Order for the student was to be able to locate the place (or places) of a commandment in the Torah, which can be done almost as easily by looking up the references in the Bible.

Nonetheless, since the Chronological Order was useful for us in creating the organized catalogs in The Torah Concordance, it stands to reason that it may hold some usefulness for other students. Thus, it is now offered as a free PDF under this title: The Chronological Torah Concordance. Anyone who believes it to be useful may do almost anything with it, even making a personalized organization (see copyright page for stipulations). One advantage of having this PDF is the capability of doing searches. Since the “c” identified numbers were retained in The Torah Concordance, it may be useful as a companion to the book by searching the “c” numbers.

The following charts illustrate how the concordance functions in a simplified form. Even though the Systematic and Exclusive lists are not included in this document, they are still illustrated to give the student a full view of the thought process behind this list and The Torah Concordance.
