Consequently, with respect to the audience and to the function of the Decalogues in Israelite society, few scholars suggest an immediate use of the Decalogues as criminal law. Many determined its function in the current arrangement of law primarily as a summary of legal rules: The law collections that follow the Decalogues appear as interpretive specifications that unfold the Decalogue in detail; see for instance, Schmidt and Delkurt cited under Individual Commands , Miller cited under Individual Commands , and Kaufman — cited under the Decalogue as Law.
Reading the Decalogues in the context of biblical law has also posed the source-critical question of when they originated and how they developed, an important topic of 20th century scholarship. The Decalogues precede the legal collections and function as their summaries or preambles.

Ben-Zion offers samples of insights into the reception history. Like many others, Olson reads Deuteronomy 6—11 as interpretation and expansion of the first command and Deuteronomy 12—28 as interpretations and extensions of the remainder of the Decalogue. The collected essays in Brown combine exegetical perspectives with a broad sampling of the history of interpretation, including contemporary perspectives.
