How do US laws compare with the Ten Commandments? The Ten Commandments is a fairly short code that is substantially about worship, with the first three of the ten commandments requiring believers to worship God only and the fourth requiring observance of the Sabbath.
The fifth commandment tells us to honour our parents, which is a commandment …more about family relations than law.
The next four commandments are concerned with prohibiting murder, adultery, theft and false witness, but only as general statements.
The tenth commandment can be defined as dealing with protecting property rights because it tells us not to covet the property of our neighbour, but it does not tell us how to sue a person for thinking these things.

United States law is based on the principles of British common law, law of tort and legislation passed by Congress and at all times subject to change by the Congress.
