The two stone tablets on which the ten commandments were written by “the finger of God” were placed in the ark.

I’ve posted these 10 commandments not because I am “holier than thou”, but because I once was a wicked and deceived man who thought of himself as being wise in my own opinions/conceits. The truth is, and as recorded in the bible, I was a fool. Don’t you be a fool.
Real wisdom, knowledge and understanding begins by fearing (obeying, reverencing) the Creator-God who gave you the gift of life. We are given the choice of eternal life or eternal death. Obeying the Creator’s commandments leads to eternal life, while rejecting them leads to eternal death. Choose “eternal life”!
The Ten Commandments — Exodus Chapter 20 verses 2 – 17 KJV
And God spake all these words, saying,
 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (verses 2 -3)
 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. (verses 4 – 6)
 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (verse 7)
 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. (verses 8 – 11)
 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. (verse 12)
 Thou shalt not kill. (verse 13)
 Thou shalt not commit adultery. (verse 14)
 Thou shalt not steal. (verse 15)
 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. (verse 16)
 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. (verse 17)
Verses 18 -22
And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. (verse18)
And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.(verse 19)

And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was. (verse 21)
