Generalizing away from leining the 10 haDiberos...

At the end of the day, the RBSO arranged things so that for centuries now
Jews have been leining His 10 haDevarim (as Hashem calls them) as 9 pesuqim.

>From a causal perspective, I agree with RSM. From a teleological one,
it's hard for me to dismiss that quickly a widely accepted minhag,
discussed by generations of gedolei Torah.

Tir'u baTov!
