Passages about The Ten Commandments, Part 5

Today we will look at passages related to murder. Commentator David Guzik explains the distinction between different reasons for taking a human life: "Murder is the taking of life without legal justification ...or moral justification." (blueletterbible.org)

Exodus 20:13 (NASB) You shall not murder.

Geneisis 9:6 (NASB) Whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man.

Matthew 26:52 (NASB) Then Jesus said to him, "Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword."

Revelation 13:10 (NASB) If anyone is destined for captivity, to captivity he goes; if anyone kills with the sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is the perseverance and the faith of the saints.

Mark 7:20-22 (NASB) And He was saying, "That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man.For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness."

Matthew 5:21-22 (NASB) {Jesus said,}You have heard that the ancients were told, " YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT MURDER' and "Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the court.'22 ""But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, " You good-for-nothing,' shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, "You fool,' shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell.
