Hello, I am looking for help how the so called ritual decalogue of Ex 34 is usually (have traditionally been) divided into ten and only ten commandments. I have noticed that there are different versions. I would appreciate any tips to academic literature on this subject. I am particularly interested in positions taken in the 18th century, but any tips would be most welcome.

Perhaps, these professors would be a good starting point for you.?
