The Book of Coming Forth by Day

An alternative, and probably foundational, list of "commandments" may be found in Chapter 125 of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. These should sound familiar.

I have not scorned any god.
I have not defrauded the poor of their property.
I have not done what the gods abominate.
I have not cause harm to be done to a servant by his master.
I have not caused pain.
I have caused no man to hunger.
I have made no one weep.
I have not killed.
