There are many rules and codes throughout the Bible that are to be followed In Exodus the Ten Commandments are found These are easily comparable to the codes found in the Book of the Dead and the Code of Hammurabi Although the Code of Hammurabi is a set of laws and not moral rules for going to heaven many things are similar Yet on some account many things are left unmatchable The first of the Ten Commandments cannot really be compared because it excludes all of the other gods It proclaims that God is the only god and no others come before him Exodus 3 pg 41 The second commandment states that people are not to build graven images or any likeness of anything that is not in heaven or above Exodus 4 pg 41 but in Mesopotamia and Egypt it was considered a sin if you did not pay homage to the gods by building statues and such in their image Not taking the lords name in vain is similar in all religions It is thought of as being tacky and rude but also a sin in most major religions Exodus 7 pg 41 For example in Egypt it was stated in the Negative confession that to curse the gods it was a sin Negative Confession pg 29 The Sabbath or the seventh day is to remain labor free for God made the world in six days so working on his resting day is a sin Exodus 10 pg 41 Honor your father and mother is similar to most c ivilized humans for it is done out of mere respect for your parents Exodus 12 pg 41 The next commandment is you shall not kill Exodus 13 pg 41 which is stated in the Book of the Dead as being sinful Negative Confession pg 29 Yet the Code of Hammurabi states that it is simply morally wrong to kill without just cause
