Below is a list of the 613 mitzvot Commandments (The Law) (mitzvot is plural, mitzvah is singular).

There are both "positive" and "negative" mitzvot (do's and don'ts) which can be divided into 365 Negative Mitzvot (to remind us not to do bad things every day of the year) plus 248 Positive Mitzvot (the number of bones in the human body - for a total of 613. In this way, Hebrews and Jewish people are able to obey the mitzvot with their entire body.

It is important to know that while YAHWEH gave us many commands to follow, including the famous Ten Commandments, He did not abolish the Law of Moses found in the Torah (the first five Books of the Bible). The following commandments are superseded by the new covenant of grace for the Gentiles, Not the Hebrews.

The Law is YAHWEH'S Divine Instructions in Righteousness without which man would have NO blueprint for moral, holy living.

YASHUAH "Jesus Christ" "NEVER" attempted to abolish the rabbinical Law given to Moses by YAHWEH, neither He nor His apostles ever spoke against the Law nor suggested that after YASHUAH' "Jesus’" death the Torah was to become null and void. The Apostle Paul said, “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” (Romans 3:31)

God gave 248 positive Mitzvot / Commandments ("the Do's"), and 365 negative ones ("the Don'ts"). They are as follows:
