The Sixth Commandment

Rachel and I were watching the old film Ten Commandments on DVD a couple of years ago. There's a scene where Moses (Charleton Heston) has killed the overseer Baka (Vincent Price) and Pharaoh (Yul Brenner) shows up to investigate. The scene looks like a TV show plot. We laughed. Rachel, or was it me said "CSI Cairo!"

EXODUS 2:11-12
"11 Now it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens. And he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren.
12 So he looked this way and that way, and when he saw no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand."

There's some different figures here. MARX Moses, some MARX Romans and Robin Hood figures as Hebrews and two big Egyptians by JESCAN. 


  1. always very good work and story!!
    and I like the similar subject that a well known TV serie! (he he, even in France, we can see some US series ! and even, I can tell you that the actors talk in French, especially for us !!
    not like your characters !! pfff !)

  2. I think they´ve got Moses bang to rights..:-D
