Building a 3rd pyramid from the Decalogue, and a narrative from The 49 Books

: Building a 3rd pyramid from the Decalogue, and a narrative from The 49 Books. [The tabernacle is priestly--bronze, silver, gold storeys? Elders over 10, 50s, 100s, thousands is kingly? This is prophet-ly?]]
Two parts. 
1--Take the Decalogue and put connections between each two in succession.  Example:
‘No other gods’ and ‘No idols’—what is the connection?
You should have 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1.
You’ll end up with the BIG CONNECTOR?
This would be as Moses is to the elders over 10s, 50s, 100s, thousands.
Also as the Holy of Holies is to the 3-tiered tabernacle. Bronze, silver, gold.
[Note:  See how the 5 and 5 works out also, and the 3 and 7 of Lutherans/Romans?]
[Also note that if the tabernacle is priestly, and the elders over 10s, 50s, 100s and thousands is kingly, then this pyramid would be prophet-ly.  But should it be expanded to all the ‘treaty at
Sinai,’ per Dorsey in ‘The Literary Structure of the Old Testament Ex. 19:3-Numbers 10:10, and/or should it include an 11th, the ‘I am the Lord, thy God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage’?]
The second is easier.
2—Take the center of each book of the Bible, JBJ’s 49, and make a narrative from them.
Easier to do with Dorsey for the OT, but add Bullinger and others for the NT.

Use Jordan’s 49 of ‘Rethinking the Order of the Old Testament.
