What are they about?

The first 3 commandments are about God and how we should treat him. The Sabbath commandments is one of these because this day was the holy day when God had finished creating the world and rested. We should also not say 'Oh God' and things like that because it is blasphemy and we should not worship any other Gods.

The last 7 commandments are about how we should treat other people. Killing, committing adultery and stealing are all understandable things that we shouldn't do. Covetting means wanting so desberatly that we think or say 'what right does he have to own that or it/him/her'. Thins is forbidden because it drives us to do some of the other commandments that are forbidden. Bearing false witness means lying.
