Add or subtract to the commandments


#1

In The Book of Deuteronomy, Chapter 4 Verse 2 states:
In your observance of the commandments of the Lord, your God, which I enjoin upon you, you shall not add to what I command you nor subtract from it.

Why would anyone want to add or subtract to the Ten Commandments?

This refers to the commandments of the Law (Torah), which number 613.

From a Jewish perspective, why is Baalpeor and Sinai so important to this introduction?
