The 42 Laws of Maat: The Original Commandments?

MaatS

Many people have read or at least heard the biblical story of Moses and the Ten Commandments.  What I find interesting is so many know about the 10 commandments but have never heard of the 42 Laws of Maat.  Maat was the Egyptian Goddess designed to avert chaos (Islet) and maintain truth (Maat) in ancient Kemet (Egypt).  In the biblical story, Moses was adopted into Egyptian royalty and was educated in ‘all the wisdom of the Egyptians’ according to Acts 7:22.   This means the biblical Moses would have been well aware of the 42 Laws of Maat.  The laws of Maat are dated as far back as 2925 B.C.E., meaning their existence predates the commandments received by Moses by 2000+ years!   I found it very interesting that the biblical 10 commandments can be somewhat found in the 42 Laws of Maat.  Could it be that Moses was inspired by ancient Egyptian teachings when he wrote the commandments?  I mean…it does say he was educated in all Egyptian ways.  Check out the 42 (Divine Priciples) Laws of Maat below, do your research, and post your thoughts.

    I think you are correct. Many people don’t want to consider this but just from the eye test it seems Moses plagiarized the Ten Commandments. If that’s the case who Moses talking to on that mountain?

      Thank you for coming by Matt. Welcome to the Family! If you continue to do research, I suggest you look at a few scholarly debates discussing how the ten commandments came to be. Great question too by the way! According to the Biblical text, Moses spoke to YHWH on the mountain. Research TETRAGRAMMATON if you’ll like to learn more about the discussed origins of YHWH. Many Kemetic experts said that it all came from ancient KMT. However, Christian apologitics is become very popular in efforts to debunk the Kemetic scientist. Great discussion!

    Laws of Maat are very important and will are being enforced on us today by Elohim. We say the list of “I will not”…. upon rising for the day, and upon going to bed, the “I have not….” broken the laws or principles. Moses originally had 613 laws, you can look those up, all biblically referenced, but indeed, those came when needed, and the 42 laws predate all. Praise Th Most Highs!

      Thank you for coming by Ryan. Thank you for sharing that knowledge brother! I hope you continue to conduct research. I ran across a guy online name Brother Berean on YouTube. He has an interesting perspective I believe you should check out. Berean TV is his name online. Hope you can subscribe and become part of the family! Thanks to TMH for you coming by.

    My sentiments exactly; white supremacy was guided under those Ten Commandments and we are victims of it.

      Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! What are you thoughts to combat this?

    613 or 42 or just 10 are just too many for me.
    I’ll stick with the Golden Rule which just has one … Do unto others as you would have done unto you.
    It’s a very simple ball game and when at the end of your life you have stuck to the principles of the Golden Rule than any Matt, Ra, YHWH or God who does not accept that as a life well lived is not worth their salt and probably doesn’t exist anyway.

    BTW When I die I’m going to Baseball Heaven no matter what any of those other guys say.

      Thank you for coming by and being a part of the family. You have a very interesting view point. Many would find an issue with your statement perhaps when it comes to the specific rules given in each of the “holy” text. I hope you can continue to conduct research on the topic and some of the other topics found on the site. Baseball Heaven…..can you strike out there or is it home runs for all 🙂 Peace Brother Stephen.

    This is the 42 Laws,,, but my question is “” when did it exist??”” Because that word GOD didn’t exist until the 1600s… Somebody help me out here

    • April 29, 2019 / 7:34 pm

      Hello Le’Shun. Thank you so much for visiting and taking a moment to read the post. Great question. However, I must correct you on the statement “until the 1600s”. I’ll give you the actual word GOD; however, that is English. The original translation of the Hebrew God in the bible is YHWY. The accreditation of the writings are given to the Moses himself, however, modern scholarship sees the book as initially a product of the Babylonian exile 6th century BCE, from earlier written and oral traditions, with final revisions in the Persian post-exilic period 5th century BCE. I find it interesting because most of the YouTube scholars are quick to say “the white man wrote the bible or created the bible during the Council of Nicea” but, that is also not true. When you think about the council of Nicea, priest were called to Constantine to discuss the divinity of Jesus Christ, not to create a Yahshua. Check out some scholarly research on the Tetragrammaton. This is also true with the Kemetic Deities such as Osiris. Today, we say “Egyptian God” but back in that time, they spoke a completely different language and it was a mystery system. So its okay to say “God” its just the Langua Franca of today. 🙂

        I must add….the Egyptian Deities were also anthropomorphized. Study the Medu Neter. You will find it interesting. What is a Neter? Why did the ancient KMTs build the pyramids in alignment with the Orion Constellation? Great things to study. Let me know once you check it all out. I know its a lot but…..I can tell your hungry for information. 🙂
