5. Does the second, third, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, or tenth commandment indicate the author of the Decalogue?

Answer

No; none of them.
NOTE - The second commandment forbids the making of and bowing down to images, but does
not in itself reveal who the true God is. The third commandment says, "Thou shall not take the name of the
Lord thy God in vain," but it likewise fails to reveal the true God and giver of the law. A worshipper of the
sun might say he kept this commandment so far as it itself reveals what god is meant. So of the other
commandments here referred to. In the last five commandments the name of God is not even mentioned.
