Should the 10th commandment really be listed under good laws? It's a law againsts thoughts and desires. While that might be a good concept to follow personally, it definately wouldn't make a good law. Maybe I'm just being picky, but if this commandment were enforced it would be a pretty bad thing:

“You must not desire your fellowman’s house. You must not desire your fellowman’s wife, nor his slave man nor his slave girl nor his bull nor his ass nor anything that belongs to your fellowman.”

In fact, this is something that some religions use to label masterbation and porn wrong. They say that in order to masterbate you have to be thinking about taking something that doesn't belong to you, and that is covetousness.

IMO no thought should be illegal.

Which translation?

The bit from Exodus 20 Bible-icon.png says:

“You must not testify falsely as a witness against your fellowman. 17 “You must not desire your fellowman’s house. You must not desire your fellowman’s wife, nor his slave man nor his slave girl nor his bull nor his ass nor anything that belongs to your fellowman.”

The "fellowman" bit looks odd. Which translation is this? Is it copyrighted? Can it be freely quoted like this? Is there any reason to choose this one rather than one which will be more familiar to Bible readers? --Arensb 10:58, 1 May 2007 (CDT)
