      I was referring to the (tiny) knowledge of the Bible and of Biblical
      Hebrew. But the decalogue is a memorable piece of literature, partly
      because of its phrasing. Most Israelis would know, remember, that the
      bible says "lo tirtsah" (and not "al tirtsah") - that's my impression
      and personal experience. Maybe I'm wrong and they wouldn't know even that :(
