mitsvah (mits-vaw'); from OT:6680; a command, whether human or divine (collectively, the Law):

Genesis 26:5

5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws. KJV The verse above took place long before Exodus 20:1, the first of the 10 commandments.

Exodus 12:11

11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD's Passover. KJV

Exodus 12:14

14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever. KJV

Exodus 12:49-50

49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.

50 Thus did all the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they. KJV

These verses also took place before the 10 commandments were given to Moses.

John 14:21

21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. KJV

The first of the 10 commandments is the greatest of all commandments but not the first.
