HaShem tells Moshe (Shemot 24:12):
וְאֶתְּנָה לְךָ אֶת־לֻחֹת הָאֶבֶן וְהַתּוֹרָה וְהַמִּצְוָה אֲשֶׁר כָּתַבְתִּי לְהוֹרֹתָם -
And I will give thee the tables of stone, and the Torah and the Mitzvah which I have written, that thou may teach them."
From this verse I see three things being given to Moshe, which he should teach the people about. The first one being the Luchot HaBrit (the stone tablets of the covenant), second the Torah (G-ds life instruction) and third the Mitzvah which He has written.
So I have three questions:
First: the Luchot HaBrit are known for the Aseret HaDewarim that were written upon them; I heard that Aseret could mean 'a lot' and refer to 'a large number' like the English 'a dozen' doesn't only means 12 like in '“I just bought a dozen eggs” or a lot like in "I need dozens of those"." So could these tablets have contained more then Ten Words / Ten Statements?
Second, is the Torah being referred here to mean G-ds life instructions like the Chukot, Mishpatim, Eidot, Torot like a generic/collective term or do all of these stand on their own?
And my last question: what exactly did G-d wrote what's being referred to as the Mitzvah?
(Is this referring to the command G-d gave at the start of the Mount Sinai experience: אִם-שָׁמוֹעַ תִּשְׁמְעוּ בְּקֹלִי, וּשְׁמַרְתֶּם, אֶת-בְּרִיתִי - When you will listen obey fully to my Voice, and keep My covenant.").
Please help me define these terms.
