I'd tend to agree, Doug, that the sixth commandment along with the seventh through the tenth were given specifically to those brought out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage - or the Israelites - and were understood to apply to how they treated each other, and not how they were to treat those belonging to other nations.

As to how they were to treat citizens of other nations - well you can find those instructions from God in Joshua and Judges - kill, enslave, steal land, steal women - all rather contrary to the spirit of the last five commandments.
