Murder and Slavery

After this, David subdued and humbled the Philistines by conquering Gath, their largest city.  David also conquered the land of Moab.  He made the people lie down on the ground in a row, and he measured them off in groups with a length of rope.  He measured off two groups to be executed for every one group to be spared.  The Moabites who were spared became David’s servants and brought him tribute money.  (2 Samuel 8:1-2 NLT)

Bible Quote for July 30

Pillage and Plunder

Uzziah sent men to Betomasthaim and Choba and Kola, and to all the frontiers of Israel, to tell what had taken place and to urge all to rush out upon the enemy to destroy them.  When the Israelites heard it, with one accord they fell upon the enemy, and cut them down as far as Choba.  Those in Jerusalem and all the hill country also came, for they were told what had happened in the camp of the enemy.  The men in Gilead and in Galilee outflanked them with great slaughter, even beyond Damascus and its borders.  The rest of the people of Bethulia fell upon the Assyrian camp and plundered it, acquiring great riches.  And the Israelites, when they returned from the slaughter, took possession of what remained.  Even the villages and towns in the hill country and in the plain got a great amount of booty, since there was a vast quantity of it.  Then the high priest Joakim and the elders of the Israelites who lived in Jerusalem came to witness the good things that the Lord had done for Israel, and to see Judith and to wish her well.  When they met her, they all blessed her with one accord and said to her, “You are the glory of Jerusalem, you are the great boast of Israel, you are the great pride of our nation!  You have done all this with your own hand; you have done great good to Israel, and God is well pleased with it.  May the Almighty Lord bless you forever!”  And all the people said, “Amen.”  All the people plundered the camp for thirty days.  They gave Judith the tent of Holofernes and all his silver dinnerware, his beds, his bowls, and all his furniture.  She took them and loaded her mules and hitched up her carts and piled the things on them.  (Judith 15:4-11 NRSV)

Bible Quotes for July 29


If after this you still refuse to listen and still remain hostile toward me, then I will give full vent to my hostility.  I will punish you seven times over for your sins.  You will eat the flesh of your own sons and daughters.  I will destroy your pagan shrines and cut down your incense altars.  I will leave your corpses piled up beside your lifeless idols, and I will despise you.  I will make your cities desolate and destroy your places of worship, and I will take no pleasure in your offerings of incense.  Yes, I myself will devastate your land.  Your enemies who come to occupy it will be utterly shocked at the destruction they see.  I will scatter you among the nations and attack you with my own weapons. Your land will become desolate, and your cities will lie in ruins.  Then at last the land will make up for its missed Sabbath years as it lies desolate during your years of exile in the land of your enemies.  Then the land will finally rest and enjoy its Sabbaths.  As the land lies in ruins, it will take the rest you never allowed it to take every seventh year while you lived in it.  (Leviticus 26:27-35 NLT)

God Will Kill the Children of Sinners

God Approves of Slavery

When the Lord has pity on Jacob and again chooses Israel and settles them on their own soil, the aliens will join them and be counted with the house of Jacob.  The house of Israel will take them and bring them along to its place, and possess them as male and female slaves on the Lord’s soil, making captives of its captors and ruling over its oppressors.  (Isaiah 14:1-2 NAB)

Kill People for Working on the Sabbath

The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: ‘Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever.  It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy.  Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy.  Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community.  Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest.  I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.’  (Exodus 31:12-15 NLT)

Bible Quote for July 22

Jephthah Kills 42,000

The leaders of Ephraim responded, “The men of Gilead are nothing more than rejects from Ephraim and Manasseh.”  So Jephthah called out his army and attacked the men of Ephraim and defeated them.  Jephthah captured the shallows of the Jordan, and whenever a fugitive from Ephraim tried to go back across, the men of Gilead would challenge him.  “Are you a member of the tribe of Ephraim?” they would ask.  If the man said, “No, I’m not,” they would tell him to say “Shibboleth.”  If he was from Ephraim, he would say “Sibboleth,” because people from Ephraim cannot pronounce the word correctly.  Then they would take him and kill him at the shallows of the Jordan River.  So forty-two thousand Ephraimites were killed at that time.  (Judges 12:4-6 NLT)

Bible Quote for July 21

Beat Your Kids

Whoever spoils his son will bind up his wounds, and will suffer heartache at every cry.  An unbroken horse turns out stubborn, and an unchecked son turns out headstrong.  Pamper a child, and he will terrorize you; play with him, and he will grieve you.  Do not laugh with him, or you will have sorrow with him, and in the end you will gnash your teeth.  Give him no freedom in his youth, and do not ignore his errors.  Bow down his neck in his youth, and beat his sides while he is young, or else he will become stubborn and disobey you, and you will have sorrow of soul from him.  Discipline your son and make his yoke heavy, so that you may not be offended by his shamelessness.  (Sirach 30:7-13 NRS)

Bible Quote for July 20

No Sex During Menstruation

If a man lies in sexual intercourse with a woman during her menstrual period, both of them shall be cut off from their people, because they have laid bare the flowing fountain of her blood.  (Leviticus 20:18 NAB)

Kill Priests of Other Religions

Then Jehoiada made a covenant between the LORD and the king and the people that they would be the LORD’s people.  He also made a covenant between the king and the people.  And all the people of the land went over to the temple of Baal and tore it down.  They demolished the altars and smashed the idols to pieces, and they killed Mattan the priest of Baal in front of the altars.  Jehoiada the priest stationed guards at the Temple of the LORD.  Then the commanders, the Carite mercenaries, the guards, and all the people of the land escorted the king from the Temple of the LORD.  They went through the gate of the guards and into the palace, and the king took his seat on the royal throne.  (2 Kings 11:17-19 NLT)

Virgins and Other Spoils of War

And the LORD said to Moses, ‘You and Eleazar the priest and the family leaders of each tribe are to make a list of all the plunder taken in the battle, including the people and animals.  Then divide the plunder into two parts, and give half to the men who fought the battle and half to the rest of the people.  But first give the LORD his share of the captives, cattle, donkeys, sheep, and goats that belong to the army. Set apart one out of every five hundred as the LORD’s share.  Give this share of their half to Eleazar the priest as an offering to the LORD.  Also take one of every fifty of the captives, cattle, donkeys, sheep, and goats in the half that belongs to the people of Israel.  Give this share to the Levites in charge of maintaining the LORD’s Tabernacle.’  So Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.  The plunder remaining from the spoils that the fighting men had taken totaled 675,000 sheep, 72,000 cattle, 61,000 donkeys, and 32,000 young girls.  (Numbers 31:25-35 NLT)

Kill Anyone who Approaches the Tabernacle

For the LORD had said to Moses, ‘Exempt the tribe of Levi from the census; do not include them when you count the rest of the Israelites.  You must put the Levites in charge of the Tabernacle of the Covenant, along with its furnishings and equipment.  They must carry the Tabernacle and its equipment as you travel, and they must care for it and camp around it.  Whenever the Tabernacle is moved, the Levites will take it down and set it up again.  Anyone else who goes too near the Tabernacle will be executed.’  (Numbers 1:48-51 NLT)

The Israelites Kill all the Males of Edom

Bible Quotes for July 14

Foreigners Enslaved to Build Temples

There were still some people living in the land who were not Israelites, including Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites.  These were descendants of the nations that Israel had not completely destroyed.  So Solomon conscripted them for his labor force, and they serve in the labor force to this day.  But Solomon did not conscript any of the Israelites for forced labor.  Instead, he assigned them to serve as fighting men, government officials, officers in his army, commanders of his chariots, and charioteers.  He also appointed 550 of them to supervise the various projects.  (1 Kings 9:20-23 NLT)

Bible Quote for July 11

Kill People of Other Religions

Far be it from us to desert the law and the ordinances.  We will not obey the king’s words by turning aside from our religion to the right hand or to the left.”  When he had finished speaking these words, a Jew came forward in the sight of all to offer sacrifice on the altar in Modein, according to the king’s command.  When Mattathias saw it, he burned with zeal and his heart was stirred.  He gave vent to righteous anger; he ran and killed him on the altar.  (1 Maccabees 2:21-24 NRS)

God Kills 70,000 Men Over a Census

(God punishes David for ordering a census of his people.)  Yahweh spoke to Gad, David’s seer, saying, Go and speak to David, saying, Thus says Yahweh, I offer you three things: choose you one of them, that I may do it to you.  So Gad came to David, and said to him, Thus says Yahweh, Take which you will:  either three years of famine; or three months to be consumed before your foes, while the sword of your enemies overtakes you; or else three days the sword of Yahweh, even pestilence in the land, and the angel of Yahweh destroying throughout all the borders of Israel.  Now therefore consider what answer I shall return to him who sent me.  David said to Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall, I pray, into the hand of Yahweh; for very great are his mercies: and let me not fall into the hand of man.  So Yahweh sent a pestilence on Israel; and there fell of Israel seventy thousand men.  (1 Chronicles 21:9-14 WEB)

Murder, Pillage, and Plunder

“Next we headed for the land of Bashan, where King Og and his army attacked us at Edrei.  But the LORD told me, ‘Do not be afraid of him, for I have given you victory over Og and his army, giving you his entire land.  Treat him just as you treated King Sihon of the Amorites, who ruled in Heshbon.’  So the LORD our God handed King Og and all his people over to us, and we killed them all.  We conquered all sixty of his towns, the entire Argob region in his kingdom of Bashan.  These were all fortified cities with high walls and barred gates.  We also took many unwalled villages at the same time.  We completely destroyed the kingdom of Bashan, just as we had destroyed King Sihon of Heshbon. We destroyed all the people in every town we conquered – men, women, and children alike.  But we kept all the livestock for ourselves and took plunder from all the towns.”  (Deuteronomy 3:1-7 NLT)

Bible Quote for July 7


At the customary time for offering the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet walked up to the altar and prayed, “O LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at your command.  O LORD, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.”  Immediately the fire of the LORD flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust.  It even licked up all the water in the ditch!  And when the people saw it, they fell on their faces and cried out, “The LORD is God!  The LORD is God!”  Then Elijah commanded, “Seize all the prophets of Baal.  Don’t let a single one escape!”  So the people seized them all, and Elijah took them down to the Kishon Valley and killed them there.  (1 Kings 18:36-40 NLT)

Bible Quote for July 5

More Christian Communism

Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand persons were added that day.  They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers.  Awe came upon everyone, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.  All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one’s need.  (Acts 2:41-45 NAB)

Bible Quotes for July 4

Christian Communism

The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common.  With great power the apostles bore witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great favor was accorded them all.  There was no needy person among them, for those who owned property or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds of the sale, and put them at the feet of the apostles, and they were distributed to each according to need.  (Acts 4:32-35 NAB)

Bible Quotes for July 3

Conquest, Murder, and Plunder

So Joshua and his warriors traveled to the water near Merom and attacked suddenly.  And the LORD gave them victory over their enemies.  The Israelites chased them as far as Great Sidon and Misrephoth-maim, and eastward into the valley of Mizpah, until not one enemy warrior was left alive.  Then Joshua crippled the horses and burned all the chariots, as the LORD had instructed.  Joshua then turned back and captured Hazor and killed its king.  (Hazor had at one time been the capital of the federation of all these kingdoms.)  The Israelites completely destroyed every living thing in the city.  Not a single person was spared.  And then Joshua burned the city.  Joshua slaughtered all the other kings and their people, completely destroying them, just as Moses, the servant of the LORD, had commanded.  However, Joshua did not burn any of the cities built on mounds except Hazor.  And the Israelites took all the captured goods and cattle of the ravaged cities for themselves, but they killed all the people.  As the LORD had commanded his servant Moses, so Moses commanded Joshua.  And Joshua did as he was told, carefully obeying all of the LORD’s instructions to Moses.  (Joshua 11:7-15 NLT)

Slaves, Respect Your Masters

Slaves, be subject to your masters with all reverence, not only to those who are good and equitable but also to those who are perverse.  (1 Peter 2:18 NAB)
