There are two different sets, mainly differing in the first commandment

One says: Thou shall have no other gods before me

The other says: Hear O'Israel, the Lord our god, the lord is one. You shall love the lord your god with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your might. You shall do so upon rising and retiring, upon resting and while walking by the way, and you shall teach it deligently to your children.

I always supposed that god in his/her great forsight provided one set for the Jews and the other for the Christians. It's clear which is which. Note that Jesus summed up the commandments using the Jewish set, plus you shall love thy neighbor.
