'It shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the Lord's law may be in thy mouth.'--EXODUS xiii. 9. The question may be asked, whether this command is to be taken metaphorically or literally. No doubt the remembrance of the great deliverance was intrusted to acts.

This was preceded by smaller documents, which one or more redactors embodied in it.

It is true that we have the oldest form of the decalogue from the Jehovist
