Deut 6:9. "And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy
house, and on
We are commanded to put them in public places. The
word "gates" of Deuteronomy 6:9 refers to public places. For
example, in Ruth 4:1-11, Boaz went to talk to the elders in the
"Gates" to obtain permission to marry Ruth and obtain the rights to
her land inheritance. Other passages like wise demonstrate this as
well, I Kings 22:10, Ps 127: 5, Deut 14: 27-28, Deut 25: 7-8, and Ps
24:7. Our forefathers have obeyed the command to publicly post the
Ten Commandments on our gates (public places), and have done so in
over 4,000 public places across the United States alone, and many
more in Europe. No other verse or passage of scripture is displayed
in public places (Courthouses, parks, city halls) like the Ten Commandments are. The Ten Commandments is the only
passage of scripture that we are told to display in public.
Judge Roy Moore is only one of 4,000 of our leaders who have made
permanent public displays of the Ten Commandments in the U.S. Our
forefathers have been doing this custom for centuries, publicly
placing the Ten Commandments in stone or metal monuments. He is
obviously the most prominent in recent history because he has
refused to retreat from the pressure of the liberal politically
correct, and he is one of the highest office holders to demonstrate
courage under fire. We need to follow the example of thousands of
our forefathers, and Judge Moore, and obey and display the Ten
Commandments, and place in the "gates" or public places. This is the
heritage and examples our forefathers set before us when they
established America. We have over 4,000 examples set before us, the
Ten Commandments is the most commonly placed scripture in public. It
is so popular that the second or third place scripture has not been
Places in the Bible, that "Gates" refers to public places, or
seats of government.
Ruth 4 contains the story of Boaz going to the elders at the
"GATES" (public place similar to a court house) and obtains legal
permisssion and legal right to marry Ruth.
Ruth 4: 1-11
1 Then went Boaz up to the gate, and sat him down there: and,
behold, the kinsman of whom Boaz spake came by; unto whom he said,
Ho, such a one! turn aside, sit down here. And he turned aside,
and sat down.
2 And he took ten men of the elders of the city, and said, Sit
ye down here. And they sat down.
3 And he said unto the kinsman, Naomi, that is come again out
of the country of Moab, selleth a parcel of land, which was our
4 And I thought to advertise thee, saying, Buy it before the
inhabitants, and before the elders of my people. If thou wilt
redeem it, redeem it: but if thou wilt not redeem it, then tell
me, that I may know: for there is none to redeem it beside thee;
and I am after thee. And he said, I will redeem it.
5 Then said Boaz, What day thou buyest the field of the hand of
Naomi, thou must buy it also of Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of
the dead, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance.
6 And the kinsman said, I cannot redeem it for myself, lest I
mar mine own inheritance: redeem thou my right to thyself; for I
cannot redeem it.
7 Now this was the manner in former time in Israel concerning
redeeming and concerning changing, for to confirm all things; a
man plucked off his shoe, and gave it to his neighbour: and this
was a testimony in Israel.
8 Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he
drew off his shoe.
9 And Boaz said unto the elders, and unto all the people, Ye
are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was
Elimelech's, and all that was Chilion's and Mahlon's, of the hand
10 Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I
purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his
inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among
his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are witnesses
11 And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders,
said, We are witnesses. The LORD make the woman that is come into
thine house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the
house of Israel: and do thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous
27 And the Levite that is within thy gates; thou shalt not
forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee.
28 At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the
tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within
7 And if the man like not to take his brother's wife, then let
his brother's wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, My
husband's brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in
Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband's brother.
8 Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto
him: and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her;
1 Kings 22:10
10 And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat
each on his throne, having put on their robes, in a void place in
the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets
prophesied before them.
7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye
everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving . . . . Be thankful to
Him, and bless His name. ?
Psalm 127:5 If we have Godly children, one of the rewards is that
our children will speak with the "Enemy" in the "gate" (public
places or in places of government).
These are the commandments and the judgments,
which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of Israel
in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.
Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am the LORD.
And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they
shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the
