1. Mark 10:19 (ESV)
  2. Exposition

Is the first table of the law (commandments 1–4) ignored?

Mark 10:19 (ESV)

19 You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.’”

Since the commands of love for the neighbour form the conclusion to the commands to serve God, it is not correct to say that the commands of the first table are ignored. Reverence for the commands of the second table fulfils the requirement of the first table of the law.1
