Tips for Memorizing the 10 Commandments

Memorizing the Ten Commandments

When memorizing the Ten Commandments, begin by separating them into the two categories identified by the Savior—love for God and love for our neighbor—and then add a little rhyme-time fun to remember each one.

Thou Shalt Love the Lord Thy God

The first four commandments deal with our relationship with God—how and when we worship Him.

1. One—None: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” None, nada, zip. No other gods. Period. 

2. Two—Moo: “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.” No golden calf (moo) or any other likeness for worship. Worship God.
