Ibn Ezra on the changes in the Ten Commandments

Note: This content originally appeared as a series of posts on parshablog. It is a translation of a lengthy exposition of Rabbi Avraham Ibn Ezra on the minor girsological differences between the Ten Commandments as it initially appears in the sidra of Yitro and as it is repeated in Mishneh Torah, in the sidra of Va'etchanan. These changes are in word choice, in spelling, and in presence or absence of conjunctions. Ibn Ezra's approach is to minimize the impact of these differences.
