~6~ Do Not Murder

The Ten Commandments are always displayed as two tablets, each containing five statements. The five contained on the second tablet all refer to how we must treat our fellow human beings.

Most people would state that the sixth commandment is "Do Not Kill." This is understandable because the classic King James Bible translates it this way. But the English language has changed since 1610. Furthermore, Hebrew has two words for killing just as English does. The correct translation is "Do Not Murder." Once you grasp this, the meaning of the commandment changes entirely...Dennis Prager

Deliberately taking the life of an innocent person is the most terrible thing we can do...
