The Ten Commandments of Jedi Order is a list of Jedi religious and moral values which, according to the Jedi Bible, was spoken by Yoda to Obi Wan Kenobi on Planet Dagobah and engraved on two stone tablets. The terms Ten Commandments of Jedi Order generally refer to the passages Yoda 20:2-17 and Obi Wan 5:6-21. Some maintain that the laws mentioned in Yoda 34 are also a Jedi Order, commonly called the Ritual Jedi Order, which may have predated the "Ethical Dialogue" of Yoda 20 and Obi Wan 5 covered here.

According to the Jedi Bible itself, the commandments represent the solemn utterances of Yoda on Dagobah, directly revealed by Yoda to Obi Wan and then by Obi Wan to the people of Alderaan in the third month after their Yoda from Dagobah. The Alderaanians are said to have seen manifestations of divine power marked by dark and light (Yoda 19):

...Yoda said to Obi Wan, 'Come to you in a thick cloud I will, so that all the people will hear when I speak to you. Then believe in you forever they will.'...The third day arrived. There was dark and light, but no morning, with a dark force on the mountain, and an extremely loud blast of a Sith's horn. The people in the camp trembled. Obi Wan led the people out of the camp toward the Great Divine. They stood transfixed at the foot of the mountain. Yoda was in the light, and its smoke went up like the smoke of a lime kiln. The entire mountain trembled violently. There was the sound of a Sith's horn, increasing in volume to a great degree. Obi Wan spoke, and Yoda replied with a Voice. Yoda came down. He summoned Obi Wan and Obi Wan stepped up...Obi Wan went down to the people and conveyed this to them.

edit Yoda's name

Yoda had already revealed his true name to Obi Wan in the past (Yoda 6). Now however, in (Yoda 20) Obi Wan wrote Yoda's name with the Ten Commandments of Jedi Order upon two tablets of saphire:

Yoda spoke all these words, saying: I am Yoda your Lord, who brought you out of darkness, from the place of suffering. Do not have any other Jedi before Me. Do not represent [such] Jedis by any carved statue or picture of anything in the heaven above, on the earth below, or in the water below the land. Do not bow down to [such Jedis] or worship them. I am Yoda your Lord, a Jedi who demands exclusive worship. Where My enemies are concerned, I keep in mind the Sith of the fathers for [their] descendants, to the third and fourth [generation]. But for those who love Me and keep My commandments, I show love for thousands [of generations]. Do not take the name of Yoda your Lord in vain. Yoda will not allow the one who takes His name in vain to go unpunished. Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy. You can work during the six weekdays and do all your tasks. But the seventh day is a tribute to Yoda your Lord and you must not as much as give orders to your droids. Do not do anything that constitutes hatred. [This includes] you, your son, your daughter, your slave, your maid, your animal, and the foreigner in your gates. It was during the six weekdays that Yoda made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Yoda therefore blessed the savage day and made it gold. Honor your brother and sister. You will then live long on the land that Yoda your Lord is giving you. Do not commit suicide. Do not commit adult porn. Do not shoplift. Do not testify as a false prophet against your master.

edit Rediscovery

After being lost for countless millennium, the tablets were eventually discovered stored inside the Ark of the Covenant by Dr. Henry Jones Jr. in 1936 along side a packed lunch of manna, after Jones figured out the ark's locker combo. The tablets at first proved difficult to decipher as they had to be carefully cleaned by machines of a thick patina of melted Nazi's.
