What is funny is that Moses pretty much violated all these “laws”, including murder.

Let’s check this claim out:

First commandment: “You shall have no other gods before me.” Moses obviously didn’t break that one.

Second commandment: “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them…”

Moses didn’t break that one.

Third commandment: “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain,”

Moses didn’t break that one.

Fourth commandment: “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. “

No evidence Moses broke that one.

Fifth commandment: ” Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.”

Don’t see any signs Moses broke this one.

Sixth commandment: “You shall not murder.”

Moses did kill an Egyptian who was whipping a Jew. Almost certainly counts. Score! one commandment broken.

Seventh commandment: “You shall not commit adultery.”

No evidence Moses did that.

Eighth commandment: “You shall not steal.”

Don’t think Moses did this. Anyway, I’ll score it as him breaking it because it’s a pretty common one to break. So two broken!

Ninth: “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

No evidence Moses did this.

Tenth: “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Yeah, everyone breaks that one.

So Moses definitely broke murder. He might have broken two others. Your claim is totally hyperbolically dumb, as usual.

Oh, and Moses probably didn’t exist, and to whatever extent he existed he probably didn’t do anything that’s talked about in the bible. It’d be kind of weird if a narrative fictional construction did break all ten commandments; that wouldn’t make for a very compelling story.
