There is a curious passage in the Talmud [the body of Jewish civil and religious law] which says that Moses gave six hundred injunctions* to the Israelites. As these commands might prove too numerous to commit to memory, David brought them down to eleven in Psalm 15 (see below). Isaiah reduced these eleven to six in Isaiah 33: 15. Micah (6:8) further reduced them to three; and Isaiah (56:1) once more brought them down to two. These two Amos (5:4) reduced to one. However, lest it might be supposed from this that God could be found only in the fulfillment of the law, Habakkuk (2:4 KJV) said, “The just shall live by his faith.”
