Hi Conchita,

The 10 Commandments are different in Protestant and Catholic theology.

Here is the difference based on Exodus 20 which both list the commandments:

Exodus 20 In Protestant theology:

Commandment 1: 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Commandment 2: 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image

Commandment 3: 7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain

Commandment 4: 8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Commandment 5: 12 Honour thy father and thy mother

Commandment 6: 13 Thou shalt not kill.

Commandment 7: 14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Commandment 8: 15 Thou shalt not steal.

Commandment 9: 16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

Commandment 10: 17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

Exodus 20 In Cathoic theology:

Commandment 1: 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image

Commandment 2: 7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain

Commandment 3: 8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Commandment 4: 12 Honour thy father and thy mother

Commandment 5: 13 Thou shalt not kill.

Commandment 6: 14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Commandment 7: 15 Thou shalt not steal.

Commandment 8: 16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

Commandment 9: 17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

Commandment 10: 17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

The 10 Commandments are also listed in Deuteronomy 5.

Thank you for your response. However, you misunderstood my question. I was not asking why it is that some religions observe the Sabbath on Sunday, rather than on Saturday. My question was regarding what, exactly, is the 4th Commandment. I was taught that it is "Honor thy father and thy mother," and, applied that answer to the question posted in the "Bible Trivia" quiz. I was surprised when my answer turned out to be incorrect. I listed the 10 Commandments in the order in which I was taught. To my understanding of the KJV, as well as the Catholic Version, it would appear that the Fourth Commandment is, "Honor thy father and thy mother," not, "Remember the Sabbath, to keep it holy." See rational below:

BOOK OF EXODUS:

Verses 1 - 6 (First Commandment)

Verse 7 (Second Commandment)

Verses 8 - 11 (Third Commandment) "Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy."

Verse 12 (Fourth Commandment) "Honor thy father and thy mother."

Still confused.
