Verses about 10 commandments in the New Testament post thumbnail image


A listing of verses from the New Testament shows that the commandments of God, the 10 commandments, have neither been changed nor abolished. The opposite is the case. Jesus Christ, like His apostles, emphasizes the laws with statements and examples.

Verses in the New Testament about valid laws

Knowledge of rules

Knowledge of applicable laws is extremely important

The thesis about abolished commandments could only be maintained as long as no corresponding passages in the Bible were questioned. While references to changed or obsolete commandments cannot be found, there are numerous passages in the New Testament that emphasize the validity of the 10 commandments from Mount Sinai.

Bible verses from King James Version

The First Commandment

Exodus 20:3: worship God alone.
Note in the NT:
Luke 4:8: And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

The second commandment

Exodus 20:4-6: Do not make or worship idols
Note in the NT:
1. Corinthians 10,:7: Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
Romans 1:18-25: For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

The Third Commandment

Exodus 20:7: Don’t abuse God’s name.
Note in the NT:
Colossians 3:8: But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
2. Timothy 2:19: Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

The Fourth Commandment

Exodus 20:8-11: Remember the Sabbath (7th day).
Note in the NT:
Hebrews 4:9-10: There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
It follows automatically from this that the Sabbath also applies today for all people!

The Fifth Commandment

Exodus 20:12: Honor father and mother.
Note in the NT:
Ephesians 6:1: Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

The sixth commandment

Exodus 20:13: You should not kill
Note in the NT:
Romans 13:9: …Thou shalt not kill,…
Matthew 5:21: Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
Matthew 19:18: Thou shalt do no murder

The seventh commandment

Exodus 20:14: Thou shalt not commit adultery
Note in the NT:
Matthew 5:28: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Romans 13:9: Thou shalt not commit adultery,…

The Eighth Commandment

Exodus 20:15: You shall not steal
Note in the NT:
Matthew 19:18: Thou shalt not steal,
Ephesians 4:28: Let him that stole steal no more:

The Ninth Commandment

Note in the NT:
Matthew 19:18: Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Ephesians 4:25: Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

The Tenth Commandment

Exodus 20:17: Thou shalt not covet
Note in the NT:
Luke 12:15: And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
Romans 7:7: What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.
Romans 13:9: Thou shalt not covet;

Two verses of the NT related

Matthew 19:17-19:
And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Romans 13:8-10:
Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

It goes without saying that the laws of God have never been abolished, nor have they been crucified with Jesus Christ. The 10 Commandments from Mount Sinai are therefore fully valid!
