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!

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