Mosaic Decalogue In Ancient Israel

Good Essays
The Ancient Israelites settled in the land of Canaan sometime between 1300 and 1200 BC. The Israelites traced their descents to the father of many nations called Abram, several centuries before, who had migrated to Canaan from Mesopotamia (Britton,2017). From the beginning of time God had to deal with sinful ways from his chosen generation. God was not pleased for he gave them all they wanted but yet they were still unrighteous. God has a heart for all those who chose to live according to how he wants them or us to live, He also sits back to see what decision we chose to do rather it is right or wrong. When he sees that his children are living right then he will reward those. On the other hand, God will also punish those who chose to live a sinful life, without a change of heart.
