NOT KILLING SOMEONE WRONGFULLY
... [They] do not kill anyone
God has made inviolate, except with the
right to do so, and do not fornicate; anyone
who does that will receive an evil punishment.
... "Do not murder, do not commit adultery,
do not steal, do not give false testimony,
do not defraud, honor your father and mother."
You shall not kill. (Exodus 20:13)
O city that brings on herself doom by shedding
blood in her midst and defiles herself by
making idols, you have become guilty because
of the blood you have shed. (Ezekiel 22:3-4)
... There is no faithfulness, no love,
no acknowledgment of God in the land. There
is only cursing, lying and murder, stealing
and adultery; they break all bounds, and
bloodshed follows bloodshed. Because of
this the land mourns... (Hosea 4:1-3)
And do not go near to fornication.
It is an indecent act, an evil way. (Qur'an,
He [Jesus] went on: "What comes out of
a man is what makes him 'unclean.' For from
within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts,
sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery,
greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander,
arrogance, and folly. All of these evils
come from inside and make a man 'unclean.'"
You shall not commit adultery. (Exodus
O Prophet! When believing
women come to you pledging allegiance to
you on the grounds that they will not associate
anything with God, steal, fornicate, kill
their children, or give a false ascription
of paternity-making up lies about their
bodies-or disobey you in respect of anything
right, then accept their pledge and ask
forgiveness for them. God is Ever-Forgiving,
Most Merciful. (Qur'an, 60:12)
"Do not steal... Do not deceive one another."
NOT BEARING FALSE WITNESS
[Believers are] those who
do not bear false witness and who, when
they pass by worthless talk, pass by with
dignity. (Qur'an, 25:72)
O you who believe! Be upholders of justice,
bearing witness for God alone, even against
yourselves or your parents and relatives...
Do not spread false reports. Do not help
a wicked man by being a malicious witness.
Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong.
When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do
not pervert justice by siding with the crowd,
and do not show favoritism to a poor man
in his lawsuit. (Exodus 23:1-3)
Acquitting the guilty and condemning the
innocent-The Lord detests them both. (Proverbs
Now let the fear of the Lord be upon you.
Judge carefully, for with the Lord our God
there is no injustice or partiality or bribery.
(2 Chronicles 19:7)
