We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
We have let a gumment be set up to totally covet your neighbor's house and give it to certain other neighbors that is deemed qualified by the gumment we set up.
and number 20:15 is another gumment action that is done everyday to your neighbor's house.
How long will we be forced tolerate this before we rise up and storm the castle?
1) The actual commandments are chanted by Jews with a unique set of musical figures.
2) According to the tradition, the demarcation into verses is blurred, with each commandment treated as a single run-on sentence. In that traditional division, there are 2 separate commandments about coveting - setting adultery apart from the others.
3) This translation is less literally accurate than more traditional ones. For example "take the Lord's name in vain" is an accurate literal translation that has become idiomatic in English. So why change it to a more vague reading?
