Here is the brief explanation to this table:
  1. The Ten Commandments are the "compressed" Torah, meaning that these 10 commandments are unambiguous enough to include all Torah commandment. I.e commandment #7 encompasses all sexually deviant acts, not just traditional adultery.
  2. Two Tablets corresponded to Two human Hands.
  3. 10 Commandments corresponded to 10 fingers.
  4. Each pair of the 10 Commandments corresponded to one of the 5 mandatory Holidays.
  5. Each pair of the 10 Commandments corresponded to each other. I.e Idolatry vs Adultery e.t.c
  6. Each of the 10 Commandments corresponded to each of the 10 plagues.
  7. Corresponding Holiday signified the reward for keeping the Commandment.
  8. Corresponding Plague signified the punishment for violating the Commandment.
  9. Order of the Holidays also signified their priority. I.e Numbers 9:6-10.
