YaHVeH's laws, statutes and judgments can be condensed into 10 commandments. Those 10 commandments can be summed up into two. Summing the commandments up does not mean you do away with them. It is just a shorter way to express them:

Mattith’Yah-ha'Leviy/Matthew: 22:36: Rabbi, which is the great commandment in the Law/Torah?
M't:22:37: Yahvshua said to him, You shall love YaHVeH your Elohiym with all your heart, and with all your life, and with all your mind.
M't:22:38: This is the first and great commandment.
M't:22:39: And the second is like to it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.
M't:22:40: On these two commandments hang all the Torah and the nebiym/foretellers.

The tablets of stone signified the hardness of the children of Yisrael’s (all of mankind) heart to receive YaHVeH’s commandments:

{Yechizki’Yah/Ezekiel: 11:19: And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new Ruach within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh:

Yechizki’Yah: 36:26: A new heart also will I give you, and a new Ruach will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.

Romans: 8:7: Because the carnal mind is enmity against YaHVeH: for it is not subject to the Law/Torah of YaHVeH, neither indeed can be.}

The ark signified man’s heart (mind) where the commandment would be placed. The tabernacle that sheltered the ark signified our bodies.

The Ten Commandments is YaHVeH's system of Government. I think you can realize that those commandments are right:

Romans: 7:12: That's why the Law/Torah is kodesh, and the commandment kodesh, and right, and beneficial.

1 Yahvchanan/Yahn/Yohn: 3:22: And whatsoever we ask, we receive of HIM, because we keep HIS commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in HIS sight.

1 Yahvchanan: 3:23: And this is HIS commandment that we should believe on the name of HIS Ben Yahvshua Mashiyach, and love one another, as He gave us commandment.

YaHVeH’s Ten Commandments teach us how to love our Creator; the first five:

1) Shemoth/Exodus: 20:2: I am YaHVeH your Elohiym, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt/Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage.

2) Shemoth: 20:3: You shall have no other elohiym before ME.

3) Shemoth: 20:4: You shall not make to you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven/shameh above, or that is in the earth/erets beneath, or that is in the water under the erets:

Shemoth: 20:5: You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I YaHVeH your Elohiym am a jealous EL, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate ME;

Shemoth: 20:6: And showing kindness to thousands of them that love ME, and keep MY commandments.

4) Shemoth: 20:7: You shall not take the name of YaHVeH your Elohiym in vain; for YaHVeH will not hold him guiltless that takes HIS name in vain.

5) Shemoth: 20:8: Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it kadash/clean.

Shemoth: 20:9: Six days shall you labor, and do all your work:

Shemoth: 20:10: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of YaHVeH your Elohiym: in it you shall not do any work, you; nor your ben, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates:

Shemoth: 20:11: For in six days YaHVeH made shameh and erets, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: that's why YaHVeH baruk/prospered the Sabbath day, and kadash/purified it.

The last five teach us how to love our neighbor:

6) Shemoth: 20:12: Respect your father and your mother: that your days are long on the land/adamah which YaHVeH your Elohiym gives you.

7) Shemoth: 20:13: You shall not murder.

8) Shemoth: 20:14: You shall not commit adultery.

9) Shemoth: 20:15: You shalt not steal.

10) Shemoth: 20:16: You shalt not bear false witness against your neighbor.

Shemoth: 20:17: You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is your neighbor's.

1 Yahvchanan/Yahn: 3:24: And he that keeps HIS commandments dwells in HIM, and HE in him. And hereby we know that HE abides in us, by the Ruach, which HE has given us.

Revelation/Raz Galah/Secrets Revealed: 12:17: And the dragon was angry with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of YaHVeH, and have the testimony of Yahvshua Mashiyach.

Re: 14:12: Here is the patience of the kadosh/pure: here are they that keep the commandments of YaHVeH, and the belief of Yahvshua.

YaHVeH has written HIS commandments on HIS people’s heart. We do not have to have them given to us on tablets of stone (Which signifies the hardness of unbelieving Yisrael’s and mankind's heart):

1 Shemuel/Samuel: 6:6: Why then do you all harden your hearts, as the Egyptians and Pharaoh/Paro hardened their hearts?  When he had wrought wonderfully among them, did they not let the people go, and they departed?

1 Shemuel: 7:3: And Shemuel spoke to all the house of Yisrael, saying, if you do return to YaHVeH with all your hearts, then put away the strange elohiym and Ashteroth (Easter) from among you, and prepare your hearts to YaHVeH, and serve HIM only: and HE will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines/Pelishtiym. 

The Philistines is a representation of the children of Yisrael’s enemy.

We don't have to post them on our entrances because through the sacrifice of Yahvshua Mashiyach the FATHER/AB/ABBIY has placed His Torah in our minds (If you want to post them there is nothing wrong with it, just remember, don't let outward appearances deceive you):

Iybriym/Hebrews: 8:10: For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Yisrael after those days, said YaHVeH; I will put MY Torah into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them an Elohiym, and they shall be to ME a people:

Iybriym: 10:16: This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, said YaHVeH, I will put MY Torah into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

Yirmiyah/Jeremiah: 31:31: Observe, the days come, said YaHVeH, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Yisrael, and with the house of Yahudah:

Yirmiyah: 31:32: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt/Mitsriy; which MY covenant they broke, although I was a husband to them, said YaHVeH:

Yirmiyah: 31:33: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Yisrael; after those days, said YaHVeH, I will put MY Torah in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Elohiym, and they shall be MY people. 

Yirmiyah: 32:40: And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them well; but I will put MY fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from ME.  

No law can save/yesha you. Yahvshua Mashiyach alone can only yasha you from the death penalty that is incurred from transgressing YaHVeH kodesh and righteous Torah. However when you begin to understand that Yahvshua the Mashiyach is that Torah INSIDE the Ark, the Chief Corner Stone (T'hiyliym/Psalm 118:22; Eph. 2:20), you will begin to see that YaHVeH’s Torah INSIDE the Ark can Yesha you! Understand we the Body of Yahvshua represent the FATHER's Government; we respect HIM by obeying HIS rule by Torah. Beware of becoming a Pharisee in the process:

Mattit’Yah-ha'Leviy: 5:20: For I say to you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you all shall in no case enter into the kingdom of shameh. 

The scribes and Pharisees thought they were saved because of how well they kept YaHVeH’s Torah (outward appearance Mat. 23:25-26, they had no real belief and they added too YaHVeH's Torah). This is what Yahvshua Mashiyach warns us from doing. Yahvshua the Mashiyach is our righteousness (Yechizkiyah: 33:13; 1 Yahvchanan/Yahn 1:8-10). The only way we can exceed the righteous of the scribes and Pharisees is through Yahvshua the Lamb of Yah.
