❤️ Why You’ll Love This Printable
A Reminder Of Spirituality – God wrote the 10 commandments on two tablets and gifted them to Moses on Mount Sinai. Then Moses showed them to the Jews, which established a covenant between them and God. The Bible has them listed twice: in Exodus 20:2-17 and Deuteronomy 5:6-21. Our 10 Commandments printable includes all of them and it’s super easy to print.
Easy Wall Art – The printable PDF file includes two versions. One prints on U.S. Letter paper (I recommend something sturdy such as cardstock paper) and it’s excellent if you don’t want to frame it. You can use it as a simple commandments poster. The second version also prints on regular letter-size paper but it also has crop marks so you can cut it to 8×10″. Choose this version if you’re planning to frame it.
Free To Print – The 10 Commandments printable is a free digital download and prints great at home or at a print shop. It’s such an easy way to create pretty and cheap wall art for your home!
The printable Ten Commandments wall art comes in two versions:
- One prints on U.S. Letter paper to be used as is, without framing.
- The second sheet also prints on letter-size paper but also includes crop marks for cutting to 8″x10″. Use this sheet if you want to frame the 10 Commandments poster.
This free printable wall art has a cute floral design that makes it child-friendly and suitable for adults at the same time.
It’s great for decorating any room or the house, for personal Bible study, in groups of people, and even for Bible school!
Of course, if you have children, you can definitely use it to teach them these Bible verses and it will complement the use of flashcards. It’s such a great way to make them enjoy studying the laws of God and help them understand terms we don’t normally use.
What Are The 10 Commandments In The Bible?
The Bible comes in many versions, and so do the Ten Commandments. They appear twice in the old Testament, once in Exodus, and a second time in Deuteronomy.
We used the Protestant version for our printable. They are as follows:
- You shall have no other gods before Me.
- You shall make no idols.
- You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
- Keep the Sabbath day holy.
- Honor your father and your mother.
- You shall not murder.
- You shall not commit adultery.
- You shall not steal.
- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
- You shall not covet.
If you’re teaching your kids about the Ten Commandments, it’s a good idea to spend some time studying them one by one starting with the first commandment. Their meanings won’t be obvious to the young ones.
Take the fourth commandment, for example: “Keep the Sabbath day holy.”
The Sabbath day translates into the Sunday, the seventh day.
This one is actually quite debated, since it’s the only commandment the New Testament doesn’t ask believers to follow.
The Scripture mentions obeying this rule in multiple instances, so you have your work cut out. You can find out more about the topic here.
By the time you get to this commandment, I’m sure the kids have already understood that resting on Sundays is not enough to be a good Christian, and definitely not a guarantee they’ll go to Heaven in the next life.
In the end, we’re all at His mercy!
The ninth commandment will be easier to explain, at least. It’s a longer version of “Do not tell lies.” and older kids will easily understand.
It’s also worth noting the tenth commandment is longer in full form and here’s the version that appears in Exodus:
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”
A slightly different version can be found in Deuteronomy:
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife; and you shall not desire your neighbor’s house, his field, his male servant, his female servant, his ox, his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.”
Ironically, we have more things to covet in modern times compared to our neighbour’s house or his field. It can be anything from a luxury car to an expensive smartphone, but you get the idea!
✂️ Supplies Needed
Paper Cutter or Scissors – If you want to frame the 10 Commandments printable, you’ll need to use a paper cutter or a pair of scissors to cut it to size.
