Ten Commandments in Hexidecimal Code

28 May 2006

Far be it for anyone, human or computer, to be ignorant of the will of God. Translation of the bible has been necessary for every language and it has always been encouraged by scholars and leity alike. It is understood that to communicate deeply with someone and let them know you understand them you must speak their ‘heart language’ - their native tongue or the language that they are most emotionally attached to.

Therefore, I hereby post the Ten Commandments in hexidecimal code. Let no ASCII-rendering digital text processor claim it was ignorant to the restriction against “coveting your neighbor’s ass.”

(King James Version with full punctuation and verse markings converted to ASCII hex)
