Yes. Can be found in:

Exodus 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee (Hebrews) out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

God made His commandments available only to the Hebrew slaves of Egypt. God did not give it to the Egyptians, Philistines, Canaanites, Aborigines of Australia, people of Asian Continent, Natives of the American Continent, European Continent, etc....

Dude go to the new testament :)

i disagree, i am not denying that it says that in the bible, but God made it for everyone, he loves us all and wants us all to live with him in heaven and if we can't have access to his word then how will we ever gain that knowledge, as his word is a major part of your personal relationship with God. it majorly contributes to the dialogue (instead of a monologue.)

Although the first answer (Exodus 20:2) was said in the Bible, That was the Old Testament or the Old Covenant. But since Jesus died on the cross we now live under the New Covenant. That does NOT mean that we do not have to obey the laws that God gave in the Old Covenant. We still must obey all of God's laws.

Jesus said in Mark 16:15 (NKJV)

And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature". That means now that God's Word is for everyone.

Also remember that Paul taught the Word in places like Corinth, Phillipi, Ephesus, Galatia which were all in ancient Greece. Part of the New Testament was written in the ancient Greek language.
