Genesis 9:6; Leviticus 24:17; Numbers 35:30–31; Matthew 26:52

xWhoever sheds the blood of man,

by man shall his blood be shed,

yfor God made man in his own image.

An Eye for an Eye

17 rWhoever takes a human life shall surely be put to death.

30 If anyone kills a person, the murderer shall be put to death on the levidence of witnesses. But no person shall be put to death on the testimony of one witness. 31 Moreover, you shall accept no ransom for the life of a murderer, who is guilty of death, but he shall be put to death.

52 Then Jesus said to him, Put your sword back into its place. For hall who take the sword will perish by the sword.
