Hammurabi and Ten Commandments when written


#1

When were the Ten Commandments written? Which set of laws is older Hammurabi's or the Ten Commandments? Is The Code of Ur-Nammu the oldest set of laws?


#2

Compared to the Code of Ur-Nammu, which people are certain was written around 2050 BC, people don't know for certain exactly when the Ten Commandments was written, but likely many centuries after that. So Ur-Nammu was the earliest.
