Easton's Bible Dictionary - Murder
Wilful murder was distinguished from accidental homicide, and was invariably visited with capital punishment (Numbers 35:16,18,21,31 ; Leviticus 24:17 ). This law in its principle is founded on the fact of man's having been made in the likeness of God (Genesis 9:5,6 ; John 8:44 ; 1 John 3:12,15 ). The Mosiac law prohibited any compensation for murder or the reprieve of the murderer (Exodus 21:12,14 ; Deuteronomy 19:11,13 ; 2 Samuel 17:25 ; 20:10 ). Two witnesses were required in any capital case (Numbers 35:19-30 ; Deuteronomy 17:6-12 ). If the murderer could not be discovered, the city nearest the scene of the murder was required to make expiation for the crime committed (Deuteronomy 21:1-9 ). These offences also were to be punished with death, (1) striking a parent; (2) cursing a parent; (3) kidnapping (Exodus 21:15-17 ; Deuteronomy 27:16 ).
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Murder, Ritual
A false accusation frequently made against the Jews, that at the time of the Passover they sometimes kidnap a Christian male child and, after torture, put him to death in derision of the Passion of Our Lord. The incident to which the foundation of this charge may be attributed was the murder of Saint William of Norwich in 1144, a crime for which Jews were tried and which was popularly attributed to them. The charge of ritual murder has been discredited by papal Bulls, including those of Pope Innocent IV, Pope Gregory I, Pope Martin V, and Pope Paul III, and the Inquisition refused to give credence to such a charge when a case was referred to it by Pope Benedict XIV. In a report to that body Pope Clement XIV declared that only two cases of so-called ritual murder had ever been proved, those of Andrew of Rinn in 1462 and Simon of Trent in 1475, and these had been motivated by hatred of Christianity, not by ritual requirements. Father Elphage Vacandard states that "ritual murder has never been proved in a single instance of the cases that have been examined." An unfounded charge of this nature was made in New York State in 1929, and almost immediately withdrawn.

MUR'DER, n. L. mors.
1. The act of unlawfully killing a human being with premeditated malice, by a person of sound mind.

An outcry, when life is in danger. MUR'DER,
1. To kill a human being with premeditated malice. See the Noun. 2. To destroy to put an end to. Canst thou murder thy breath in middle of a word?

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Murder
In the Scripture view an outrage or sacrilege (Philo, Spec. Leg. 3:15) on God's likeness in man. Genesis 9:5-6, "whose sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God made He man." His blood was so sacred that "God requires it (compare Psalms 9:12) of every beast"; so the ox that gored man must be killed (Exodus 21:28). God's image implies in man a personal, moral, and responsible will. To cut short his day of grace and probation is the greatest wrong to man and insult to his Maker. Cain's punishment God Himself took in hand, dooming him to a life full of fears, remorse, and guilt. His life was temporarily spared, perhaps in order not to impede the natural increase of mankind at the first. But after the flood God delegated thenceforth the murderer's punishment, which is death, to man; life must go for life, blood for blood.
Murder results from the instigation of Satan the "murderer (of Adam's and Eve's souls, and Abel's body) from the beginning" (John 8:44). Not only the killer but the hater is a murderer before God (1 John 3:12; 1 John 3:15).Even a slave's life sacrificed under the rod entailed death, or some heavy punishment as the judges should decide on the master, unless the slave survived the beating a day or two, when it was presumed the master did not intend to kill him and the loss of his slave was deemed enough punishment (Exodus 21:12; Exodus 21:20-21). A housebreaker might be killed in the act by night; but if by day he was to be sold, so sacred was life regarded (Exodus 22:2-3). The cities of refuge saved the manslayer, but not the murderer, from the blood avenger. (See CITIES OF REFUGE.)
Not even Jehovah's altar could save Joab (1 Kings 2:5-6; 1 Kings 2:31). Bloodshed in any way, even in war, brought pollution (Numbers 35:33-34; Deuteronomy 21:1-9; 1 Chronicles 28:3, David; 1 Chronicles 22:8). Striking a pregnant woman so as to cause death brought capital punishment. Two witnesses were required before anyone could be put to death for murder, a check on private revenge (Numbers 35:19-30; Deuteronomy 17:6-12; Deuteronomy 19:12; Deuteronomy 19:17). The sovereign assumed the power of executing or pardoning murderers (2 Samuel 1:15-16, David and the Amalekite slayer of Saul; 2 Samuel 13:39; 2 Samuel 14:7-11, David in respect to Anmon and Absalom; 1 Kings 2:34, Solomon and Joab).
Charles Buck Theological Dictionary - Murder
The act of wilfully and feloniously killing a person upon malice or forethought. Heart murder is the secret wishing or designing the death of any man; yea, the Scripture saith, "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer, " 1 John 3:15 . We have instances of this kind of murder in Ahab, 1 Kings 22:9 . Jezebel, 2 Kings 19:2 . the Jews, Mark 11:18 . David, 1 Samuel 25:21-22 . Jonah 4:1 ; Jonah 4:4 . Murder is contrary to the authority of God, the sovereign disposer of life, Deuteronomy 32:39 ; to the goodness of God, who gives it, Job 10:12 ; to the law of nature, Acts 16:28 ; to the love a man owes to himself, his neighbour, and society at large. Not but that life may be taken away, as in lawful war, 1 Chronicles 5:22 ; by the hands of the civil magistrate for capital crimes, Deuteronomy 17:8 ; Deuteronomy 17:10 ; and in self-defence.
See SELF- DEFENCE. According to the divine law, murder is to be punished with death, Deuteronomy 19:11-12 . 1 Kings 2:28-29 . It is remarkable that God often gives up murderers to the terrors of a guilty conscience, Genesis 4:13 ; Genesis 4:15 ; Genesis 4:23-24 . Such are followed with many instances of divine vengeance, 2 Samuel 12:9-10 ; their lives are often shortened, Psalms 55:23 ; and judgments of their sin are oftentimes transmitted to posterity, Genesis 49:7 . 2 Samuel 21:1 .
Webster's Dictionary - Self-Murder
(a.) Suicide.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Murder
Intentional taking of human life. Human life is given great value in the Bible. Persons are created in the image of God; and persons are called to obey, serve, and glorify God. Human life is viewed as a sacred trust. It is because of this that taking human life is viewed as a serious crime in the Bible.
The prohibition against murder is found in the Ten Commandments, the heart of Hebrew law (Exodus 20:13 ; Deuteronomy 5:17 ). Murder is the unlawful killing of a human being by another. Deliberately taking the life of a human being ursurps the authority that belongs to God. The prohibition against murder is a hedge to protect human dignity.
The Old Testament (Genesis 9:6 ) prescribed that a murderer should be prepared to forfeit his own life. In Numbers 35:16-31 , careful attention is given to determining whether a killing is to be classified as murder.
Jesus removed the concept of murder from a physical act to the intention of one's heart (Matthew 5:21-22 ). According to Jesus, murder really begins when one loses respect for another human being. Spitting in the face of another, looking with contempt upon another, or unleashing one's anger are signs that a murderous spirit is present. Jesus forces us to move to the spirit behind the prohibition of murder. We are compelled to do all that we can do to protect the life of our neighbor and help it flourish. The writer of 1John pushed Jesus' teaching to its ultimate: “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him (1 John 3:15 ). See Image of God , Ten Commandments .

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Murder
The first death was caused by murder when Cain slew his brother Abel, and the second recorded is when Lamech said, "I have slain a man to my wounding," or "for my wound;" which may mean that he did it in self-defence. Genesis 4:23 . God set a mark upon Cain that none should kill him; and Lamech said, "If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold." After the flood God made a definite law concerning murder. God would require expiation for the blood of man, whether it was shed by beast or by man; at the hand of every man's brother, or kinsman, God would require the life of man. "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man." Genesis 9:5,6 . This injunction was repeated in the law, and has never been rescinded or modified. Neither does the N.T. in any way alter it: indeed it incidentally confirms it by declaring that the magistrate does not bear the sword in vain. Romans 13:4 . God claims the life of man, and none can set aside His rights.
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Murder
Among the Hebrews murder was always punished with death; but involuntary homicide, only by banishment. Cities of refuge were appointed for involuntary manslaughter, whither the slayer might retire and continue in safety till the death of the high priest, Numbers 35:28 . Then the offender was at liberty to return to his own house, if he pleased. A murderer was put to death without remission, and the kinsman of the murdered person might kill him with impunity. Money could not redeem his life: he was dragged away from the altar, if he had there taken refuge. When a dead body was found in the fields of a person slain by a murderer unknown, Moses commanded that the elders and judges of the neighbouring places should resort to the spot, Deuteronomy 21:1-8 . The elders of the city nearest to it were to take a heifer which had never yet borne the yoke, and were to lead it into some rude and uncultivated place, which had not been ploughed or sowed, where they were to cut its throat. The priests of the Lord, with the elders and magistrates of the city, were to come near the dead body, and, washing their hands over the heifer that had been slain, were to say, "Our hands have not shed this blood, nor have our eyes seen it shed. Lord, be favourable to thy people Israel, and impute not to us this blood, which has been shed in the midst of our country." This ceremony may inform us how much horror they conceived at the crime of murder; and it shows their fear that God might avenge it on the whole country; which was supposed to contract pollution by the blood spilt in it, unless it were expiated, and avenged on him who had occasioned it, if he could be discovered.

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Murder
The designed and malevolent taking of human life, was by the original appointment of God, a crime to be punished by death. Cain, the first murderer, recognized it as such, Genesis 4:14 . The ground for the death penalty for murder is the eminent dignity and sacredness of man as a child of God, Genesis 9:5-6 . Like the Sabbath and marriage, it is a primeval and universal institution for mankind, and all nations have so recognized it, Acts 28:4 . The Mosaic code reenacted it, Leviticus 24:17 ; and while providing for the unintentional homicide a safe retreat, declares that deliberate murder must be punished by death, from which neither the city of refuge nor the altar of God could shield the criminal, Exodus 21:12-14 Numbers 35:9-34 Deuteronomy 19:1-13 1 Kings 2:5-6,28-34 . Death was usually inflicted by stoning, upon the testimony of at least two witnesses, Numbers 35:30 . If a corpse were found in the open fields, and the murderer could not be discovered, the town nearest to the spot was obliged to purge itself by a solemn ceremony, lest it should become liable to the judgments of God, Deuteronomy 21:1-9 .
In various ways God is represented as specially abhorring this crime, and securing its punishment, Deuteronomy 32:43 2 Samuel 21:1 Psalm 9:12 55:23 Hosea 1:4 Revelation 22:15 . Our Savior instructs us that one may be guilty, in the sight of God, of murder in the heart, without any overt act, Matthew 5:21-22 1 John 3:15 . Nothing is said especially in the law respecting selfmurder, and only the cases of Saul, Ahithophel, and Judas are described in the Bible, 1 Samuel 31:4 2 Samuel 17:23 Acts 1:18 . Of all murders, that of the soul is incomparably the most awful, John 8:44 , and many plunge not only themselves but also others into the second death.
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Murder
The law of Moses, while it protected the accidental homicide, defined with additional strictness the crime of murder. It prohibited compensation or reprieve of the murderer, or his protection if he took refuge in the refuge city, or even at the altar of Jehovah. (Exodus 21:12,14 ; Leviticus 24:17,21 ; 1 Kings 2:5,6,31 ) The duty of executing punishment on the murderer is in the law expressly laid on the "revenger of blood;" but the question of guilt was to be previously decided by the Levitical tribunal. In regal times the duty of execution of justice on a murderer seems to have been assumed to some extent by the sovereign, as was also the privilege of pardon. (2 Samuel 13:39 ; 14:7,11 ; 1 Kings 2:34 ) It was lawful to kill a burglar taken at night in the act, but unlawful to do so after sunrise. (Exodus 22:2,3 )
Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Murder
1: φόνος (Strong's #5408 — Noun Masculine — phonos — fon'-os ) is used (a) of a special act, Mark 15:7 ; Luke 23:19,25 ; (b) in the plural, of "murders" in general, Matthew 15:19 ; Mark 7:21 ( Galatians 5:21 , in some inferior mss.); Revelation 9:21 ; in the singular, Romans 1:29 ; (c) in the sense of "slaughter," Hebrews 11:37 , "they were slain with the sword," lit., "(they died by) slaughter (of the sword);" in Acts 9:1 , "slaughter." See SLAUGHTER.
Note: In Matthew 19:18 , AV, phoneuo, "to kill" (akin to phoneus, see below), is translated "thou shalt do (no) murder" (RV , "thou shalt (not) kill"). See KILL , SLAY.
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Murder (2)
MURDER.—The observance of the Sixth Commandment, as of the rest, is taken for granted in the Christian system (Matthew 19:18, Mark 10:19, Luke 18:20). It concerns those who are outside of the society founded by Jesus. Thus the guilt of murder is predicated of Barabbas (Mark 15:7, Luke 23:19; Luke 23:25, John 18:40 ‘robber’), and of the unwilling guests (Matthew 22:7), and Satan is designated the original ἀνθρωποκτόνος (John 8:44). In the doctrine of Jesus, the crimes of the Mosaic codes are traced to their source in the heart (Matthew 15:19, Mark 7:21), and murder to the passion of anger. He who is angry with his brother, or who says to him ‘Raca,’ or ‘Thou fool,’ is accounted guilty of murder (Matthew 5:22). With this saying of Jesus may be compared one of Mohammed, ‘Whosoever shall say to his brother, Thou unbeliever, one of the two shall surfer as an unbeliever.’ It is also interesting to note that the Arabic verb katala means both to kill and to curse (Koran, lxxx. 16). In the Koran murder is atoned for by retaliation (cf. Matthew 5:38), a free man dying for a free, a slave for a slave; or the relatives of the slain may accept a money payment, which in practice does not exceed £500 (Koran, ii. 173; Lane’s Arabian Nights, vi. 8). The Jewish Rabbis distinguished between manslaughter and murder (Exodus 21:13-14): only in the latter case did capital punishment follow (Edersheim, History of the Jewish Nation, p. 375 f.; W. R. Smith, RS [1] 2 [2] p. 420). Self-murder is rare among Semitic peoples, though cases do occur (Matthew 27:5, Acts 1:18; Josephus BJ iii. viii. 5).

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Murder
The prevalence of murder was one of the dark facts in the social and political background of the early Apostolic Church. Fanaticism of a fierce and ruthless type was in the air, and human life was frequently as little regarded as is normal under such conditions. The resentment of the Zealots against the authority of Rome was a persistent fact in the situation from the third decade to the final catastrophe in a.d. 70, and when cruelty and oppression were carried to excess by Felix it was inevitable that there should arise in opposition a body of extremists to whom murder was merely a detail in a policy.
Thus during the time of Felix and Festus there arose the Sicarii (see Assassins), whose Jewish patriotism took a murderous shape. Their weapons were daggers (sicae; cf. Latin sicarius, ‘a murderer.’ The law passed under Sulla against murderers was Lex Cornelia de Sicariis). Armed with these, they moved with stealth through the crowds at festival seasons, seeking to remove their opponents by assassination. Then, in order to turn aside any possible suspicion, they gave way to loud expressions of grief. We find a reference to this group in Acts 21:38, where the chief captain (ὁ χιλίαρχος), finding that St. Paul speaks Greek, asks: ‘Art thou not then that Egyptian, which before these days stirred up to sedition and led out into the wilderness the four thousand men of the Assassins (τετρακισχιλίους ἄνδρας τῶν σικαρίων)?’ The Sicarii must have been the easy instrument at hand to every clever impostor, and the incident referred to here was the most notable example. An Egyptian Jew gave himself out as a prophet and held out to a crowd in the wilderness the alluring promise that the walls of Jerusalem would fall down at his word and so make the city theirs once more. Felix, however, put down the movement and took many prisoners. Josephus gives two accounts of this false prophet, in one of which (Bellum Judaicum (Josephus) II. xiii. 5) he says that the majority of the 30,000 followers were captured or slain, and in the other (Ant. XX. viii. 6) that four hundred were killed and two hundred taken prisoners.
That murder was not unknown even among those identified with the Church may be inferred from 1 Peter 4:15, where the writer addresses a warning to Christians. They are not to resent the fiery trial, but to rejoice as those sharing the sufferings of Christ-only ‘Let none of you suffer as a murderer (ὡς φονεύς).’ In later days it was a commonplace of anti-Christian abuse to charge Christians with the horrors of child-slaying and cannibalism, but there seems to be no sufficient reason for reading into the passage quoted any reference to these charges. As C. Bigg has said, ‘A Christian might quite well be guilty of murder. The times were wild, and conversions must often have been imperfect’ (International Critical Commentary , ‘Epistles of St. Peter and St. Jude,’ Edinburgh, 1901, p. 177).

The avenger was free to act if an iron object was used to commit the Murder (Numbers 35:16 ), or if a stone or wood object was used (Numbers 35:17-18 ).

Avenger of Blood - ’...
Of the form of blood-revenge that involved the whole clan or tribe in the Murder of a single individual there are still traces in the OT (Joshua 7:24 , 2 Kings 9:25 ). The steady effort of Hebrew law was to limit this ancient custom so as to ensure that a blood feud should not perpetuate itself to the ruin of a whole clan, and that deliberate Murder and accidental homicide should not come under the same penalty.

Murder results from the instigation of Satan the "murderer (of Adam's and Eve's souls, and Abel's body) from the beginning" (John 8:44). Not only the killer but the hater is a Murderer before God (1 John 3:12; 1 John 3:15). The cities of refuge saved the manslayer, but not the Murderer, from the blood avenger.

He was not, however, immediately liberated; but, to inspire the greater horror even of involuntary Murder, it seems as if the law would punish it by a kind of banishment; for he was obliged to dwell in the city, without going out of it, till the death of the high priest; and if before that time he was imprudent enough to leave the city, the avenger of blood might safely kill him; but after the death of the high priest, he was at liberty to go whither he pleased without molestation

Kin - The most serious of all the duties incumbent on the goel , in earlier times more particularly, was that of avenging the Murder of a relative. It was the affair of the whole clan, and even tribe, of the Murdered man (2 Samuel 14:7 ), the former, as it were, delegating its rights to the nearest relatives. In the older legislation the local high places appear as asylums for the manslayer, until his case should be proved to be one of wilful Murder, when he was handed over to the relatives of the man he had slain ( Exodus 21:13-14 ).

After this, when obliged, by the command of God, to give up some of Saul's family to justice, for the Murder of the Gibeonites, he spared Mephibosheth, Micah, and his family, the male descendants of Saul and Jonathan, who alone could have any pretence to dispute the crown with him, and surrendered only Saul's bastard children, and those of his daughter by Adriel, who had no right or possible claim to the throne, and could never give him any uneasiness in the possession of it; and thus showed his inviolable regard for his oaths, his tenderness to Saul, and the warmth of his gratitude and friendship to Jonathan. In the close of his life, and in the near prospect of death, to demonstrate his love of justice, he charged Solomon to punish with death Joab, for the base Murder of two great men, whom he assassinated under the pretence of peace and friendship

the duel, the outcome of which was looked upon as the judgment of God
the cross, before which the accuser and the accused stood with outstretched arms, and the first to let fall his arms was defeated

See Genesis 42:22 ; Deuteronomy 19:10 ; Deuteronomy 22:8 ; Joshua 2:19 ); (4) a person was under bloodguilt if those for whom he was responsible committed Murder (1Kings 2:5,1 Kings 2:31-33 ); and (5) the killing of a sacrifice at an unauthorized altar imputed bloodguilt (Leviticus 17:4 ). ...
When the Murderer was known in instance (1) above, the community shared the guilt of the Murderer until the guilty party had paid the penalty of death.

The Murderer was to be put to death, even if he should have taken refuge at God's altar or in a refuge city, and the same principle was to be carried out even in the case of an animal
Blood - "God will require the blood of a man," he will punish Murder in what manner soever committed. "The voice of thy brother's blood crieth;" the Murder committed on him crieth for vengeance.

But Jehu, with characteristic haste, immediately after Elisha had anointed him, set out for Jezreel and with an arrow slew Jehoram and threw his body on the very plot of ground which by falsehood and Murder Ahab had dispossessed Naboth of, fulfilling Elijah's prophecy (1 Kings 21:19; 1 Kings 21:22). His first act as a king was to Murder his six brothers, though his father had provided for them independently of him so as to avert collision (2 Chronicles 21:1-4); also several "princes of Israel. Elisha's prophetic writing threatened him with great plagues to his people, children, wives, and goods, and disease of the bowels so that they should fall out, because of his apostasy and Murder of his brethren who were "better than himself" (2 Chronicles 12-15, 18-19). " Libnah a fenced city (2 Kings 19:8) also revolted, probably as being given by Jehoshaphat (2 Chronicles 21:3) to one of those sons whom Jehoram had Murdered. ...

Areopagite, Areopagus - As to the origin of the court, according to popular legend Ares was called before a court of the twelve gods to answer for the Murder of Halirrhotius (Paus.

Goel - If, therefore, an individual should unfortunately happen to lay violent hands upon another person and kill him, the next of kin is bound to avenge the death of the latter, and to pursue the Murderer with unceasing vigilance until he have caught and killed him, either by force or by fraud. She could not be afraid of the magistrate for punishing the Murderer, for the patriarchs were subject to no superior in Palestine; and Isaac was much too partial to Esau for her to entertain any expectation that he would condemn him to death for it. In most ages and countries, certain reputed sacred places enjoyed the privileges of being asylums; Moses, therefore, taking it for granted that the Murderer would flee to the altar, commanded that when the crime was deliberate and intentional, he should be torn even from the altar, and put to death, Exodus 21:14 . But in the case of unintentional Murder, the man-slayer was enjoined to flee to one of the six cities of refuge, which were appropriated for his residence. If the goel overtook the fugitive before he reached an asylum, and put him to death, he was not considered as guilty of blood; but if the man-slayer had reached a place of refuge, he was immediately protected, and an inquiry was instituted whether he had a right to such protection and asylum, that is, whether he had caused his neighbour's death undesignedly, or was a deliberate Murderer. Farther, to guard the life of man, and prevent the perpetration of Murder, Moses positively prohibited the receiving of a sum of money from a Murderer in the way of compensation, Numbers 35:31 . It would seem that if no avenger of blood appeared, or if he were dilatory in the pursuit of the Murderer, it became the duty of the magistrate himself to inflict the sentence of the law; and thus we find that David deemed this to be his duty in the case of Joab, and that Solomon, in obedience to his father's dying entreaty, actually discharged it by putting that Murderer to death, ...

" "When a man or woman is Murdered," says Malcolm, "the moment the person by whom the act was perpetrated is discovered, the heir-at-law to the deceased demands vengeance for the blood. It is only a few years ago that the English resident at Abusheher saw three persons delivered into the hands of the relations of those whom they had Murdered. They led their victims bound to the burial ground, where they put them to death; but the part of the execution that appeared of the most importance, was to make the infant children of the deceased stab the Murderers with knives, and imbrue their little hands in the blood of those who had slain their father. When they were executed, the successor of Nadir Shah sent one of the Murderers of that monarch to the females of his harem, who, we are told, were delighted to become his executioners

Athaliah - Worldly policy, the hope of reuniting Israel to Judah, and concession to his son, whose reckless violence was afterward seen in the Murder of his own brothers (2 Chronicles 21:3-4), infatuated Jehoshaphat to sanction the union.

And then occurred those shameful deeds, the adultery with Bath-sheba, and the Murder of Uriah, which at first, it seems, did not touch his conscience, but which, when charged home upon him by the prophet Nathan, humbled the guilty monarch in the dust. There was the defilement of Tamar, and the Murder of his first-born Amnon, 2 Samuel 13:1-39; and then Absalom's unnatural rebellion and death, 2 Samuel 15:1-37; 2 Samuel 18:1-33; and Sheba's insurrection, 2 Samuel 20:1-26; and the plague for the numbering of the people, 2 Samuel 24:1-25; and Adonijah's seizure of the government, when the most long-tried counsellors of David deserted him, a movement that could be crushed only by the aged monarch's devolving his crown upon Solomon, 1 Kings 1:1-53; with various other griefs
Capital Punishment - ...
Does Scripture Require Capital Punishment? How do we reconcile Exodus 20:13 (“Thou shalt not kill”) with Genesis 9:6 (“Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed”)? If an individual kills another, it is Murder; if the state kills, it is not Murder, some would say. Has the Lord spoken forever against eating rare meat and for executing killer animals? Is it sound biblical interpretation if we interpret “by man shall his blood be shed” as a divine command for capital punishment yet consistently ignore the other commands in the context in which it is found?...
How do we explain the Lord's protection of Cain in Genesis 4:15 where a “mark” was placed on him to fend off self-appointed executioners? God's grace spared the original first-degree Murderer. Deterrence: capital punishment will discourage Murdering. Since most Murders are among friends and relatives, these “crimes of passion” are the least likely to be repeated of all offenses by the same people. A sense of justice requires that a Murderer be punished, yet nonlethal punishment preserves the life-valuing role of the state
Motives - For example, a difference between first- and second-degree Murder resides in whether or not the homicide was intentional: the former is punishable by death, while the latter allows for clemency (Exodus 21:12-14 ; Numbers 35:9-25 ; Deuteronomy 19:4-13 ; Joshua 20:1-9 ). Jesus notes that it is the "pure in heart" who will be rewarded (Matthew 5:8 ; 22:37-38 ; Mark 7:20-21 ), even as he equates anger with Murder and lust with adultery (Matthew 5:21-22,28 )

Vagabond - I would humbly enquire, doth not the term mean an everlasting unsettledness and fear, when it is considered on whom the sentence was pronounced, and the cause for which it was passed?

All history cannot furnish us with a parallel to the calamities and miseries of the Jews; rapine and Murder, famine and pestilence, within; fire and sword, and all the terrors of war, without. At Damascus ten thousand unarmed Jews were killed: and at Bethshan the Heathen inhabitants caused their Jewish neighbours to assist them against their brethren, and then Murdered thirteen thousand of these inhabitants. ...
At Alexandria the Jews Murdered multitudes of the Heathens, and were Murdered in their turn to about fifty thousand. where Christ had been especially rejected, and Murdered numbers of the inhabitants. The three different factions within Murdered one another. They Murdered almost every Jew they met with. Titus was bent to save the temple, but could not: there were six thousand Jews who had taken shelter in it, all burnt or Murdered! The outcries of the Jews, when they saw it, were most dreadful: the whole city, except three towers and a small part of the wall, was razed to the ground, and the foundations of the temple and other places were ploughed up. Soon after the forts of Herodian and Macheron were taken the garrison of Massada Murdered themselves rather than surrender. About fifty years after, the Jews Murdered about five hundred thousand of the Roman subjects, for which they were severely punished by Trajan. About 130, one Barocaba pretended that he was the Messiah, and raised a Jewish army of two hundred thousand, who Murdered all the Heathens and Christians who came in their way; but he was defeated by Adrian's forces. In the third, fourth, and fifth centuries, there were many of them furiously harassed and Murdered. Besides what they suffered in the East by the Turkish and sacred war, it is shocking to think what multitudes of them the eight croisades Murdered in Germany, Hungary, Lesser Asia, and elsewhere. the mob fell upon them, and Murdered a great many of them. In Persia, the Tartars Murdered them in multitudes. About 1349, the terrible massacre of them at Toledo forced many of them to Murder themselves, or change their religion.

In Persia they have been terribly used: from 1663 to 1666, the Murder of them was so universal, that but a few escaped to Turkey. The seditious multitudes, by Murders and massacres, have committed outrages against it still more violent and tragical

A predictable corollary of Scripture's portrayal of humankind's dignity and God-likeness is the prohibition of Murder. Numerous laws explain how it was to be understood and enforced and how to distinguish Murder from accidental killing. But with this prohibition of Murder came also mandatory capital punishment (Genesis 9:5-6 ), even for such offenses as cursing one's parents (Exodus 21:17 ) or committing adultery (Deuteronomy 22:22 )

Law - This is stated explicitly in the case of Murder (Exodus 21:12-14 ), and is implicit elsewhere. ...
Cuneiform law agrees with biblical law in condemning Murder, adultery, and incest (LH 1,129, 157); however, biblical law differs by making many religious sins, so-called victimless crimes, and crimes against family capital offenses. When Paul states that women are to be in submission "as the Law says" (1 Corinthians 14:34 ) or quotes parts of the Decalogue (Romans 13:9 ), and when James quotes the law of love (2:8 from Leviticus 19:18 ) or condemns partiality, adultery, Murder, and slander as contrary to the law (2:9,11; 4:11), and when Peter quotes Leviticus, "Be holy, because I am holy" (1 Peter 1:16 ; from Leviticus 19:2 ), the implication is that the law, or at least part of it, remains authoritative
Thieves - Fanatical zeal for emancipating the Jewish nation often accompanied robbery, from whence Barabbas and his companions in insurrection and Murder enlisted popular sympathy (Mark 15:7). ) The mysterious darkness from noon; the meek, holy, and divine bearing of Jesus amidst all taunts and agonies, and His prayer for His Murderers, touched the heart of one of the two robbers with sympathy and awe (Luke 23:39-43)

Bezer - Now Christ is the only refuge for the manslayer of the soul to flee unto; for every sinner is a soul-murderer: he hath slain his own soul. An express law for the magistrate or priest to have acted upon, in all cases of Murder where there was no malice prepense, would have been equally easy in this case, as in every other. But when we see six cities expressly set apart for this one purpose only, and placed in certain situations convenient for the poor Murderer to get most easily at; when we read so much as is said concerning it, and call to mind how much the Holy Ghost delighted in shadowing forth Christ, under the Old Testament Scripture, in type and figure; and when we observe, moreover, how very strikingly the things here marked down in the city of refuge point to the Lord Jesus Christ, we cannot hesitate to conclude, that it was thus, among a great variety of other ways, Christ was preached to the people

Judas Iscariot - Stung to the quick at their refusal to take back the money, while they condemned himself, he went to the temple, cast down the whole sum in the treasury, or place for receiving the offerings of the people; and, after he had thus returned the wages of iniquity, he retired to some lonely place, not far, perhaps, from the scene of Peter's repentance; and, in the frenzy of despair, and at the instigation of the devil, hanged himself; crowning with suicide the Murder of his master and his friend; rejecting his compassionate Saviour, and plunging his own soul into perdition! In another place it is said that, ‘falling headlong, he burst asunder, and all his bowels gushed out,' Acts 1:18
Envy - ...

Nero - Saluius Otho (one of his successors in the Empire), and the banishment and Murder of his first wife Octavia at her instance. These, as well as rich men in no way connected with them, were victims of a policy of wholesale Murder associated with the last six years or so of Nero’s reign

Scorn - No doubt the general character and conduct of Herod helped to suggest the application of the expression,—his unscrupulous nature (Luke 3:19 περὶ πάντων ὧν ἐποίησε πονηρῶν), his tyranny (Luke 13:31), his weakness (Mark 14:9), his profession of Judaism, combined with his heathen practices, his adultery and incest, and his Murder of the prophet John
Hatred - In the searching language of the Apostle of love, hatred is equivalent to Murder (1 John 3:15): the one concept lacks no hideous element that is present in the other; the animating ideas and passions of the hater and the Murderer are the same. Their ‘world’ hated them, and, in many instances, ended by Murdering them; but persecution and bloodshed only constrained them to love the more, in accordance with the precepts of the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:44)
Absalom - ...
Joab perceiving how the king took to heart Absalom's exile suborned a woman of Tekoa, by an imaginary case, to extort from the king (whose justice would not allow his love for Absalom to let him escape some penalty for Amnon's Murder) the admission of the general principle that, in special cases where the life taken could not be recalled, means for restoring the loved and living banished one should be devised; just as God, considering the brevity of man's life, weak and irrecoverable when gone, "as water spilt on the ground, does not take a (sinner's) soul away" (so the Hebrew text of 2 Samuel 14:14 for "neither doth God respect any person"), but deviseth means that His banished be not (for ever) expelled from Him

With Jehu and Bidkar his retinue riding behind, he proceeded to take possession of the coveted vineyard on the following day (compare "yesterday," 'emesh , "yesternight," the mock trial and Murder of Naboth having taken place the day before); but, like a terrible apparition, the first person he meets there is the enemy of his wickedness, whom his conscience quails before, more than before all other foes. the house of Ahab, and hast slain (Elijah writes foreseeing the Murder, for his translation was before Jehoshaphat's death, 2 Kings 3:11, after which was the Murder) the brethren of thy father's house which were better than thyself, behold with a great plague will the Lord smite thy people, thy children, thy wives, and all thy goods, and thou shalt have great sickness . " But Elijah discerned in Joram the covetous and Murderous spirit which would frustrate all Jehoshaphat's forethought, the fatal result of the latter's carnal policy in forming marriage alliance with wicked Ahab. Therefore, as Elijah had committed to Elisha the duty laid on himself by God of foretelling to Hazael his elevation to the Syrian throne (Elisha being Elijah revived in spirit), so Elijah committed to him the writing which would come after Elijah's translation to Joram with all the solemnity of a message from Elijah in the unseen world to condemn the Murder when perpetrated which Elijah foresaw he would perpetrate
Trial-at-Law - No account was taken of the motive; nor was it necessary to bring home crimes like Murder to the actual perpetrator of the deed, still less to mete out vengeance by the exact measure of the wrong. But Murder was not the only crime that called for vengeance in blood. The actual execution of justice was left to the injured party, and in the case of ‘manifest’ crimes like open Murder and house-breaking ancient codes interposed no check on summary vengeance; but where the least doubt existed, and the accused claimed the privilege of trial, society demanded clear evidence of his guilt, at the same time seeking to control the fierce impulses of the avenger by limiting punishment to the responsible wrong-doer, and making the penalty correspond as nearly as possible to the gravity of the offence; in other words, replacing the principle of unrestricted vengeance by the ius talionis-‘an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. ...

Marks - But this answer is unsatisfactory, because, if it was a tribal mark, it would be common to all the members of the tribe, whereas this one is spoken of as being specifically for Cain’s benefit, and as having been given to protect him qua manslayer; a tribal mark would have been on him before the Murder of Abel. But then again, any mark designed to protect him on account of his being a Murderer, would, as proclaiming his guilt, rather have the opposite effect

Travel (2) - In Exodus 16:29 the ‘place’ by a process of Rabbinical reasoning became the city where a man dwelt; and it was argued that ‘if one who committed Murder accidentally was allowed to take this journey of 2000 ells on the Sabbath day without violating the sanctity of the day, innocent people might do the same
Manaen (2) - In either case it is suggestive to contemplate the Murderer of John the Baptist and paramour of Herodias, side by side with the man of ascetic Essene stock, subsequently a teacher in the Church of Christ. What passed between the foster-brothers after John’s Murder? Was Manaen a silent or a protesting spectator when Jesus was mocked? Did the death of Christ complete a work of grace already begun at the death of John? Did the Resurrection of Christ (no rumour this time, Matthew 14:2, but a well attested fact) seal for ever the allegiance of a halting disciple? Did he remain in the train of his foster-brother till the latter left for Rome in a

James - Such, indeed, was his general reputation for piety and virtue, that, as we learn from Origen, Eusebius, and Jerom, Josephus thought, and declared it to be the common opinion, that the sufferings of the Jews, and the destruction of their city and temple, were owing to the anger of God, excited by the Murder of James

Temperance - He sees in the angry thought the germ of Murder, in the impure thought the germ of adultery, and so He goes to the root of the matter
Evil - This essay uses the term "moral evil" to include both social offenses (ethics—murder, theft) and cultic sins (those offenses aimed directly against the deityblasphemy, idolatry). For example, the same Decalogue that declares that stealing and Murder are wrong likewise forbids idolatry and blasphemy. Because of this, cult and ethics often appear fused in the Bible, as in Cain's admission of guilt for a faulty sacrifice and the Murder of his brother (Genesis 4:13 ); a similar fusion of the cultic and the ethical occurs in Genesis 15:16 ("the sin of the Amorites"), where idolatry and unethical activity are considered as one
the Woman Who Took Leaven And Hid it in Three Measures of Meal - Till it is in God's sight very Murder itself; hidden, as yet, it may be from your introspection in its three measures of surrounding and smothering-up meal.

Joab - The land trembles as Joab rises on the stepping-stones of Murdered men to the shining top of power and honour, only to fall under the sword of a too-slow justice an outlaw from the love and the pity of all men. ' And though it was a clear enough crime in David to pass by Joab's Murder of Abner, it came out afterwards to be a most terrible blunder. But, then, Joab was the most powerful and the most necessary man in Israel, and Abner had no friends, and David contented himself with pronouncing an eloquent requiem over Abner, and leaving his Murderer to go free in all his offices and all his honours. How could he plan an attack, and sham a retreat, and risk a defeat, and all to Murder a noble, spotless, unsuspecting comrade? It was not soldierly obedience. Unless you can tell us, we shall never in this world know why Joab Murdered Uriah after that letter
Absalom - David's palace was a perfect pandemonium of suspicion, and intrigue, and jealousy, and hatred-all breaking out, now into incest and now into Murder. And, then, all the plots and counter-plots connected with Absalom's revenge, and flight, and restoration, and too-late reconciliation to his father; his deep-laid schemes to wrench the kingdom out of his father's hands; and then his defeat and Murder by Joab-all that, if we have the courage to look at it, will give us a picture of the men and the times, humiliating beyond all words, and never to be forgotten. Amnon was worse than if he had been the actual Murderer of his own sister. For it was David's unwillingness to trouble Amnon that made Absalom in the cause of his sister first a Murderer, and then a conspirator, and then, after a life of terrible trouble, himself a mangled corpse under the revengeful and Murderous hands of Joab, that other arch-troubler of Israel. I have slain my son! I have Murdered my son with my own hands! I neglected my son Absalom from a child! With my own lusts I laid his very worst temptation right in his way. O Absalom, my Murdered son! Would God thy Murderer had been in thy place this day

Pilate - ...
It is not improbable that Barabbas' riot and Murder were connected with Pilate's appropriation of the Corban; this explains the eagerness of the people to release him rather than Jesus; the name may mean "son of Abba," an honorary title of rabbis, from whence the elders were strongly in his favor

Satan - Christ's words of Satan are (John 8:44), cf6 "ye are of your father the devil; he was a Murderer (compare as to his instigating Cain 1 John 3:9-12) from the beginning and abode not in the truth.

David - in His Races - '...
But, who is that roaring all the day long on the Murderous wheel? Who is that stretched and stretched again on the rack all night till all his bones are out of joint-out of joint and broken in pieces with the hammer and the anger of God? The voice of whose roaring is that-According to the multitude of Thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions? And that-For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me? Do you ask who that is? Do you not know? That is the prodigal son of the Old Testament. What at one time he had almost committed Murder to cover up, he will now hearken for from every housetop. 'My honest scholar,' says Isaac Walton, when he is giving his companion a lesson in making a line and in colouring a rod, 'all this is told you to incline you to thankfulness; and, to incline you the more, let me tell you that though the prophet David was guilty of Murder and adultery, and many others of the most deadly sins, yet he was said to be a man after God's own heart, because he abounded more and more with thankfulness than any other that is mentioned in Holy Scripture

Ahab - Having Murdered Pheles, he became king of Tyre. This disobedience, like Saul's in the case of Amalek, owing to his preferring his own will to God's, coupled with his treacherous and covetous Murder of Naboth, brought on him his doom in his third campaign against Benhadad three years subsequently. The same Benhadad whom duty to God ought to have led him to execute as a blasphemer, drunkard, and Murderer, was in retribution made the instrument of his own destruction (1 Kings 20:10; 1 Kings 20:16; 1 Kings 20:42)

Am I to tell a lie, or to become the accomplice, however unwilling, in the Murder of my friend?* Jeremiah - At length, after the destruction of Jerusalem, being carried with the remnant of the Jews into Egypt, whither they had resolved to retire, though contrary to his advice, upon the Murder of Gedaliah, whom the Chaldeans had left governor in Judea, he there continued warmly to remonstrate against their idolatrous practices, foretelling the consequences that would inevitably follow
Joab - Joab showed a wickedly unscrupulous fidelity as David's tool for Murdering Uriah, by setting him in the forefront to encounter a sortie from the city, and then deserting him. David could no longer revenge Abner's blood on his own accomplice in the Murder of Uriah. He thus at once ingratiated himself with the reigning king, and with Absalom his probable successor, one less likely to punish Joab for Murdering Abner than Solomon. Then he removed the body out of the highway, and cast a cloth over it; so the people moved on, and Joab resumed the chief command, with the blood of the treacherously Murdered victim still upon his girdle and sandals (1 Kings 2:5), David felt himself powerless to punish him (2 Samuel 23:6-7). But the true character soon showed itself again, and even the worldly sagacity which heretofore had kept him on the winning side in the end forsook him, for with Abiathar Joab joined in Adonijah's rebellion, and Solomon, by David's dying charge, had him slain at the altar of Gibeon where he had fled for sanctuary, but which afforded no protection to a treacherous Murderer (Exodus 21:14)

Why are you so pushed for time to repent? Why is retrospection the only thing that you have no time for, and always push it into a corner? Is it because you are not your brother's keeper? Is it because you never struck a foul blow in the field? Is it because no grey head has ever gone down to a grave that your hands dug? Is it because no young man's faith, and no young woman's trust, and no unsuspecting friend's good name has ever been shaken, or deceived, or pulled down and Murdered by you? Have your hands been always so washed in innocency? Are there no tears against you in God's bottle, and no names in His book? God takes care and account not of Murdered lives only, but also of Murdered names and reputations. How many men and women have we all struck at with that sharp razor, an envious, malicious, Murderous tongue? Work at your consciences, you children of God, till they are as quick to detect, to record, and to recollect an unkind, unjust, unhandsome, slighting, detracting, belittling, sneering word, or look, or shrug, as they are to keep you in mind of a foul blow in a field, and a far-back grave in a wood.

Ishmael - The calamity, Gedaliah's Murder and the consequent dispersion of the Jews, was and is commemorated by the fast of the seventh month (Zechariah 7:5; Zechariah 8:19), the third of Tisri. The mystery that men of guileless simplicity fall victims to Murderous treachery is one of many proofs that there is an enemy disordering the present world course.

Law - Thus, the command, "Thou shalt not kill," condemns not merely the single crime of deliberate Murder, but every kind of violence, and every indulgence of passion and resentment, which tends either to excite such violence, or to produce that malignant disposition of mind, in which the guilt of Murder principally consists: and similarly of the rest. What, indeed, could be hoped from legislators and philosophers, when we recollect the institutions of Lycurgus, especially as to purity of manners, and the regulations of Plato on the same subject, in his model of a perfect republic; when we consider the sensuality of the Epicureans, and immodesty of the Cynics; when we find suicide applauded by the Stoics, and the Murderous combats of gladiators defended by Cicero, and exhibited by Trajan
Moses - The ‘golden rule’ being thus added to the prohibitions of idolatrous sacrifices, fornication, and blood, the Decree is transformed into a short moral catechism, in which are forbidden the three cardinal vices-idolatry, fornication, and Murder (αἶμα = ‘shedding of blood’)
Manliness - * the Blind Leaders of the Blind - "For from within, out of the hearts of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornication, Murders, thefts, covetousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.

Expiation - Blasphemy, idolatry, Murder, and adultery, were the "presumptuous sins" which were thus exempted; and the reason will be seen in the political relation of the people to God; for in refusing to exempt them from punishment in this world, respect was had to the order and benefit of society.
