Different counting methods and versions

The last two of the Ten Commandments are closely linked to one another in terms of content. They are often counted together as the Tenth Commandment, for example in Judaism, whereas they are most often separated into the Ninth and Tenth Commandments in Christianity.


There are different versions of these two commandments. In Exodus 20: 17, the house of one's neighbour is mentioned first, whereas Deuteronomy 5: 21 first mentions his wife.
