The Eighth Commandment



According to Torah commentary, the Bible’s eighth commandment “you shall not steal” refers only to kidnapping. To find ordinance against stealing money we must look to Leviticus 19:11 which reads “you shall not steal.” The language is identical.


My Torah commentary adds the following interesting note:


“Or perhaps this one [the eighth commandment] refers only to stealing money and the one written further (in Lev.) refers to kidnapping?”

I guess I’m not the only one who is confused.
