Rabbi Simlai in the third century said that Moses gave us 365 prohibitions and 248 positive commands.

David in Psalm 15 reduced them to eleven: Isaiah—in 33. 14, 15—made them six: Micah 6. 8 binds them into three: and Habakkuk reduces them all to one, namely—`The just shall live by his faith'.—H. St. John

(Exod. 35. 1; Hab. 2. 4)
