Why are our ten commandments different than what the bible calls the ten commandments?

Exodus 34:28 (King James Version)


28 And he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

@reasoning logic,
Well, I'll be damned. You found an inconsistency in the bible. You win a cookie.

@joefromchicago,
I am not sure I would call it an inconsistency because the words "the ten commandments" are only written in three places in the bible and they seem consistent to me.

I can understand your confusion if you insist that the commandments inscribed on the stone tablets must have been the ten commandments. But the bible never says that


Deuteronomy4:13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.

That's because it was originally supposed to be fifteen. Embarrassing story. See for yourself.

@Thomas,
I wondered where all those other commandments came from. Laughing
