The earliest known inscription in the Paleo-Hebrew script is the Zayit Stone discovered on a wall at Tel Zayit, in the Beth Guvrin Valley in the lowlands of ancient Judea in 2005.[4] The 22 letters were carved on one side of the 38 lb (17 kg) stone, which resembles a bowl on the other. The find is attributed to the mid-10th century BCE.

Between 300-600yrs after the alleged tablets were written.

Dating the Ten Commandments involves an interpretation of their purpose. Some scholars propose a date between the 16th and 13th centuries bc because Exodus and Deuteronomy connect the Ten Commandments with Moses and the Sinai Covenant between Yahweh and Israel.

The Hebrew written language changed a great deal after the persian empire.

Modern Hebrew is still very different still.

A lot of people mistakenly believe the masoretic text is the Old Testament in its original language, but it is actually a translation.

All we have really are translations.

The oldest translation is in Greek, and that is the septuigant.

The bible is not the tablets containing the ten commandments so what are you waffling about?

The language of mankind.
What is this tripe?

No it's not paelo and Paleo Hebrew is the earliest form of Hebrew almost identical to Phoenician and it didn't exist until 600yrs after the alleged tablets were written. I'll try and find some crayons for the next explanation you won't understand.

Whatever language its original recipients would be able to understand. The Bible doesn't say what exactly that was, but we can presume it was probably some ancestor of Hebrew.

You would presume wrong since the earliest known version of Hebrew was extant in the 10th century bc, 300-600yrs after Moses. What language would they know other than Egyptian, they'd just spent 400yrs in Egypt and didn't have their own written language.

Pre Persian Empire Hebrew =/= Post Persian Empire Hebrew
Post Persian Empire Hebrew =/= Modern Hebrew


What languages are the 10 commandments not written in?

Abram/Abraham hailed from Mesopotamia, for which we can assume he spoke something like Akkadian. His lineage did, however, spend several generations living in modern Israel, for which it might've been prudent to adopt the local language, probably something closely related to Phoenician which eventually became Hebrew.
In Egypt they were deliberately segregated from mainstream Egyptian civilization, residing in a piece of land called Goshen (which was allotted to them by the Pharaoh), for which it was possible to establish a parallel society. Under such conditions, there might not have been pressure to change their language to conform to Egyptian standards and speaking the proto-Hebrew tongue might've been seen as a measure of group solidarity.
Case in point it should be noted that as late as WWII many Jews in Germany spoke a language that normal Germans would not have been able to understand, which was Yiddish, even after something like a thousand years living in the area. The Jews have always had a knack for not doing what everybody else does.

Why don't you just make up some more fiction because you have no evidence for any of that tripe. There is absolutely no historical evidence that the Hebrew tribe was ever in Egypt and how effective as slaves would they be if the were all restricted to one site? Really your fantasies just refute your beliefs they don't support them at all. Try to get some facts before you return.
The mythical Moses didn't have a written Hebrew language. So what language were the ten commandments written in?

Well, technically in both the Greek and modern Hebrew it is more accurately the 10 sayings or 10 words, but hey.

If you are interested in the Jewish religion's opinion, here is something which cites the Talmudic discussion of exactly this question

I'll bet it doesn't, but oh well.
I'm right there is no mention of the ten commandments tablets which is what this discussion is about.Godists always try to avoid the question because they have no sensible answer.

The 10 sayings are written in the language of civilized human decency.

Show me that language, you joke. Lies are all you have, it's godism.

As usual, your "Aha!" moment is just another case of you being haughty about your own reasonings.


Which are much like our own children. Even the ugliest and nastiest child is still the prettiest most well behaved little baby to mommy!

I proposed no Aha moment, you are shocked by my proving how nonsensical your unsupportable claims are.

Your beliefs are without doubt childish. Your beliefs are designed to indoctrinate children and or gullible adults.

Just because you don't understand he answer doesn't mean it isn't there. I said that this is the Jewish understanding. According to it, the entire Torah was given at Sinai with the ten statements engraved by God at the same time. So when it says that the Torah was written in a certain way, that's precisely what it is referring to. It is ok if you don't know. But feel free to ask in the future.
