Abstract A review of existing studies of the lexical root ḥmd reveals that no semantic analysis exists that is based on all the biblical passages in which the root ḥmd occurs, and which also assesses the dynamics of desire. This contribution seeks to fill that gap. According to the consistent use of the verb, the author suggests that the Tenth Commandment prohibits the dynamics of desire which take place on the inner spiritual level but have a wide variety of external social-economic consequences.
