A tablet, in the religious context, is a term traditionally used for religious texts.

Jews and Christians believe that Moses brought the Ten Commandments from Mount Sinai in the form of two stone tablets. According to the Book of Exodus, God delivered the tablets twice, the first set having been smashed by Moses in his anger at the idol-worship of the Israelites. The first set contained the detailed instructions for the construction of the Tabernacle, the making of priestly vestments, etc; the replacement set contained the Ritual Decalogue, one of the three versions of the Ten Commandments given in the Old Testament.

Muslims believe that the divine destiny is when God wrote down in the Preserved Tablet ("al-Lawhu 'l-Mahfuz") all that has happened and will happen, which will come to pass as written. The term is also used as part of the title of many shorter works of Bahá'u'lláh, founder of the Bahá'í Faith, and his son and successor `Abdu'l-Bahá.
