Why are the Lutheran commandments different than the ten commandments?

I do not understand the reasoning behind the Lutheran commandments being different from the commandments in the Bible.

The Ten Commandments are the same in all Christian denominations. The differences are only in the type of language used, the Catholics using more archaic terms and Protestant denominations using more modernized wording.

They are not different. There are 16 "verses" in Exodus 20 which describes the ten commandments. Different religious traditions (Jewish, Catholic, etc) divide them into 10 commandments in different ways.
