God spoke them to the assembled Israelite nation (Exodus ch.19-20), and later handed them to Moses (Exodus 31:18).


The Ten Commandments are a pillar of Western civilization. They have improved the conduct of billions of people; but because of His covenant with them (Exodus ch.24), God specifically honored the Israelites with being the nation which would be the ones to receive and treasure the Ten Commandments until they had been absorbed by humanity in general. These Commandments are so important that God revealed His presence to the entire Israelite nation when He spoke these Commands. And He inscribed them in stone (Deuteronomy ch.9); unlike the rest of the Torah, which He had Moses write (Deuteronomy 31:24).See:

According to the standard Christian Bible, God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses who was tasked with giving them to the Children of Israel.
