Death penalties

Chapter 21

12 "Whoever attacks a person and causes his death must be put to death.

13 If it was not premeditated but an act of God, then I will designate for you a place to which he can flee.

14 But if someone willfully kills another after deliberate planning, you are to take him even from my altar and put him to death.

15 "Whoever attacks his father or mother must be put to death.

16 "Whoever kidnaps someone must be put to death, regardless of whether he has already sold him or the person is found still in his possession

17 "Whoever curses his father or mother must be put to death..

22 "If people are fighting with each other and happen to hurt a pregnant woman so badly that her unborn child dies, then, even if no other harm follows, he must be fined. He must pay the amount set by the woman's husband and confirmed by judges. 23 But if any harm follows, then you are to give life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound and bruise for bruise.

28 "If an ox gores a man or a woman to death, the ox is to be stoned and its flesh not eaten, but the owner of the ox will have no further liability. 29 However, if the ox was in the habit of goring in the past, and the owner was warned but did not confine it, so that it ended up killing a man or a woman; then the ox is to be stoned, and its owner too is to be put to death.

Chapter 22

18 "You are not to permit a sorceress to live.

19 "Whoever has sexual relations with an animal must be put to death.

20 "Anyone who sacrifices to any god other than ADONAI alone is to be completely destroyed.

22 "You are not to abuse any widow or orphan.

23 If you do abuse them in any way, and they cry to me, I will certainly heed their cry.

24 My anger will burn, and I will kill you with the sword - your own wives will be widows and your own children fatherless.
