And which ones would those be?

I am the Lord thy God, ... Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Freemasons are taught to worship their own God as their own and no other Brother is forced to worship another's God. Since we have so many men of different faiths we use one name as a generic term. There are two things in the Lodge we are forbidden to talk about: religion and politics.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images.
And we don't. If you are going to say the Square and Compass is a graven image you are reaching.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
And we don't.

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
We don't meet on Sundays with exception of the York Rite which holds special meetings for Christmas and Easter observance.

Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long.
Not sure how this could be done.

Thou shalt not kill.
We haven't killed anyone since the 70s.

Thou shalt not commit adultery.
We are actually taught to prevent this and not commit adultery.

Thou shalt not steal.
We are taught to be good citizens and that includes not breaking the laws.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
To be good and true is the first lesson we are taught in Freemasonry.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house.
Not sure how this is broken.
