Blizzard further states, “The idea of law in Hebrew is not something that, if transgressed, is going to get you zapped. Torah is instruction that, if followed, will enrich one’s life; if ignored, will diminish it.” In the biblical text, Law is frequently viewed as that which God has commanded.
The Hebrew word translated commandment is mitzvah, which comes from the root tzava, and actually means to lay charge upon, or to give charge to. A mitzvah is a charge or a commandment.
According to Blizzard, commandments, when performed, designate the individual as moral and ethical, benefitting all involved and pleasing God.
