The eponymous ten commandments refer to the Ten Commandments of the Abrahamic faiths, which guide followers on how to live their lives. Miranda also stated that the concept of ten commandments stemmed from the “Ten Crack Commandments”, which served as a guide to illegal acts during the 1990s, as well as being a song by the Notorious B.I.G. Elizabeth Logan, writing for Huffington Post, stated that the song has a key role in making the audience “comfortable with duels”. This becomes important in Act 2 of the musical, where two duels occur in Weehawken, New Jersey. Thus, as per the author, the audience will be on board when “some beloved characters pick up pistols” later on in the musical. The song receives two reprises at key junctures in the musical: during “Blow Us All Away” when Philip Hamilton and George Eacker are about to duel, and in “The World Was Wide Enough” in the lead-up to the Burr-Hamilton duel.
