Murder Men, Women, and Children

“These men are friendly with us; let them dwell in the land and trade in it, for behold, the land is large enough for them; let us take their daughters in marriage, and let us give them our daughters.  Only on this condition will the men agree to dwell with us, to become one people: that every male among us be circumcised as they are circumcised.  Will not their cattle, their property and all their beasts be ours?  Only let us agree with them, and they will dwell with us.”  And all who went out of the gate of his city hearkened to Hamor and his son Shechem; and every male was circumcised, all who went out of the gate of his city.

On the third day, when they were sore, two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah’s brothers, took their swords and came upon the city unawares, and killed all the males.  They slew Hamor and his son Shechem with the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem’s house, and went away.  And the sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and plundered the city, because their sister had been defiled;  they took their flocks and their herds, their asses, and whatever was in the city and in the field;  all their wealth, all their little ones and their wives, all that was in the houses, they captured and made their prey.  Then Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, “You have brought trouble on me by making me odious to the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites and the Per’izzites; my numbers are few, and if they gather themselves against me and attack me, I shall be destroyed, both I and my household.”  But they said, “Should he treat our sister as a harlot?”  (Genesis 34:21-31 NLT)

Bible Quote for May 28

Burn People Alive

On the following day the people went out into the fields.  When Abimelech was told, he took his troops and divided them into three companies, and lay in wait in the fields.  When he looked and saw the people coming out of the city, he rose against them and killed them.  Abimelech and the company that was with him rushed forward and stood at the entrance of the gate of the city, while the two companies rushed on all who were in the fields and killed them.  Abimelech fought against the city all that day; he took the city, and killed the people that were in it; and he razed the city and sowed it with salt.

When all the lords of the Tower of Shechem heard of it, they entered the stronghold of the temple of El-berith.  Abimelech was told that all the lords of the Tower of Shechem were gathered together.  So Abimelech went up to Mount Zalmon, he and all the troops that were with him. Abimelech took an ax in his hand, cut down a bundle of brushwood, and took it up and laid it on his shoulder.  Then he said to the troops with him, “What you have seen me do, do quickly, as I have done.”  So every one of the troops cut down a bundle and following Abimelech put it against the stronghold, and they set the stronghold on fire over them, so that all the people of the Tower of Shechem also died, about a thousand men and women.  (Judges 9:42-49 NRS)

Drunken Killing

So tell them, “The LORD, the God of Israel, says: All your wineskins will be full of wine.”  And they will reply, “Of course, you don’t need to tell us how prosperous we will be!”  Then tell them, “No, this is what the LORD means: I will make everyone in this land so confused that they will seem drunk – from the king sitting on David’s throne and from the priests and the prophets, right on down to the common people.  I will smash them one against the other, even parents against children, says the LORD.  I will not let my pity or mercy or compassion keep me from destroying them.”  (Jeremiah 13:12-14 NLT)

God Kills Little Boys and Girls

So this is what the LORD Almighty says about them: “I will punish them!  Their young men will die in battle, and their little boys and girls will starve.  Not one of these plotters from Anathoth will survive, for I will bring disaster upon them when their time of punishment comes.”  (Jeremiah 11:22-23 NLT)

Bible Quote for May 25

Teach Boys to Murder

“They were my brothers!”  Gideon exclaimed. “As surely as the LORD lives, I wouldn’t kill you if you hadn’t killed them.”  Turning to Jether, his oldest son, he said, “Kill them!”  But Jether did not draw his sword, for he was only a boy and was afraid.  Then Zebah and Zalmunna said to Gideon, “Don’t ask a boy to do a man’s job!  Do it yourself!”  So Gideon killed them both and took the royal ornaments from the necks of their camels.  (Judges 8:19-21 NLT)

Bible Quotes for May 24

The Cure for Jealousy

And the LORD said to Moses, “Say to the people of Israel: ‘Suppose a man’s wife goes astray and is unfaithful to her husband.  Suppose she sleeps with another man, but there is no witness since she was not caught in the act.  If her husband becomes jealous and suspicious of his wife, even if she has not defiled herself, the husband must bring his wife to the priest with an offering of two quarts of barley flour to be presented on her behalf.  Do not mix it with olive oil or frankincense, for it is a jealousy offering – an offering of inquiry to find out if she is guilty.  “‘The priest must then present her before the LORD.  He must take some holy water in a clay jar and mix it with dust from the Tabernacle floor.  When he has presented her before the LORD, he must unbind her hair and place the offering of inquiry – the jealousy offering – in her hands to determine whether or not her husband’s suspicions are justified.  The priest will stand before her, holding the jar of bitter water that brings a curse to those who are guilty.  The priest will put the woman under oath and say to her, “If no other man has slept with you, and you have not defiled yourself by being unfaithful, may you be immune from the effects of this bitter water that causes the curse.  But if you have gone astray while under your husband’s authority and defiled yourself by sleeping with another man”- at this point the priest must put the woman under this oath – “then may the people see that the LORD’s curse is upon you when he makes you infertile.  Now may this water that brings the curse enter your body and make you infertile.  “And the woman will be required to say, “Yes, let it be so.”  Then the priest will write these curses on a piece of leather and wash them off into the bitter water.  He will then make the woman drink the bitter water, so it may bring on the curse and cause bitter suffering in cases of guilt.  “‘Then the priest will take the jealousy offering from the woman’s hand, lift it up before the LORD, and carry it to the altar.  He will take a handful as a token portion and burn it on the altar.  Then he will require the woman to drink the water.  If she has defiled herself by being unfaithful to her husband, the water that brings the curse will cause bitter suffering.  She will become infertile, and her name will become a curse word among her people.  But if she has not defiled herself and is pure, she will be unharmed and will still be able to have children.  “‘This is the ritual law for dealing with jealousy.  If a woman defiles herself by being unfaithful to her husband, or if a man is overcome with jealousy and suspicion that his wife has been unfaithful, the husband must present his wife before the LORD, and the priest will apply this entire ritual law to her.  The husband will be innocent of any guilt in this matter, but his wife will be held accountable for her sin.’  (Numbers 5:11-31 NLT)

Bible Quote for May 21

Punish Illegitimate Children 

So it is with a woman who leaves her husband and presents him with an heir by another man.  For first of all, she has disobeyed the law of the Most High; second, she has committed an offense against her husband; and third, through her fornication she has committed adultery and brought forth children by another man.  She herself will be brought before the assembly, and her punishment will extend to her children.  Her children will not take root, and her branches will not bear fruit.  (Sirach 23:22-25 NRSV)

Bible Quotes for May 20

Kill Followers of Other Religions

While the Israelites were camped at Acacia, some of the men defiled themselves by sleeping with the local Moabite women.  These women invited them to attend sacrifices to their gods, and soon the Israelites were feasting with them and worshiping the gods of Moab.  Before long Israel was joining in the worship of Baal of Peor, causing the LORD’s anger to blaze against his people.  The LORD issued the following command to Moses: “Seize all the ringleaders and execute them before the LORD in broad daylight, so his fierce anger will turn away from the people of Israel.”  So Moses ordered Israel’s judges to execute everyone who had joined in worshiping Baal of Peor.  Just then one of the Israelite men brought a Midianite woman into the camp, right before the eyes of Moses and all the people, as they were weeping at the entrance of the Tabernacle.  When Phinehas son of Eleazar and grandson of Aaron the priest saw this, he jumped up and left the assembly.  Then he took a spear and rushed after the man into his tent. Phinehas thrust the spear all the way through the man’s body and into the woman’s stomach.  So the plague against the Israelites was stopped, but not before 24,000 people had died.  (Numbers 25:1-9 NLT)

Kill the Sons of Sinners

At that time Joshua invoked this curse: “May the curse of the LORD fall on anyone who tries to rebuild the city of Jericho. At the cost of his firstborn son, he will lay its foundation.  At the cost of his youngest son, he will set up its gates.”  So the LORD was with Joshua, and his name became famous throughout the land.  (Joshua 6:26-27)

Bible Quotes for May 13

Kill the Family of Sinners

And Joshua said to Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession to him; and tell me now what thou hast done, hide it not from me.  And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done.  When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them, and behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.  [Note that the sin is not looting, but failing to give the loot to the treasury of the Lord.]  So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran to the tent, and behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it.  And they took them from the midst of the tent, and brought them to Joshua, and to all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD.  And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them to the valley of Achor.  And Joshua said, why hast thou troubled us?  the LORD shall trouble thee this day.  And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.  And they raised over him a great heap of stones to this day.  So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger: wherefore the name of that place was called the valley of Achor to this day.  (Joshua 7:19-26 Webster’s Bible)

Bible Quote for May 12

Kill Old Men and Young Women

You are my battle-ax and sword,” says the LORD.  “With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms.  With you I will shatter armies, destroying the horse and rider, the chariot and charioteer.  With you I will shatter men and women, old people and children, young men and maidens.  With you I will shatter shepherds and flocks, farmers and oxen, captains and rulers.  “As you watch, I will repay Babylon and the people of Babylonia for all the wrong they have done to my people in Jerusalem,” says the LORD.  “Look, O mighty mountain, destroyer of the earth!  I am your enemy,” says the LORD.  “I will raise my fist against you, to roll you down from the heights.  When I am finished, you will be nothing but a heap of rubble.  You will be desolate forever.  Even your stones will never again be used for building.  You will be completely wiped out,” says the LORD.  (Jeremiah 51:20-26)

[Note that after God promises the Israelites a victory against Babylon, the Israelites actually get their butts kicked by them in the next chapter.  So much for an all-knowing and all-powerful God.]

God Kills and Burns Little Ones

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith Jehovah of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered; and I will turn my hand upon the little ones.  And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith Jehovah, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.  And I will bring the third part into the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried.  They shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people; and they shall say, Jehovah is my God.  (Zechariah 13:7-9 ASV)

God’s Happy Killers

Praise the LORD!  Sing to the LORD a new song.  Sing his praises in the assembly of the faithful.  O Israel, rejoice in your Maker.  O people of Jerusalem, exult in your King.  Praise his name with dancing, accompanied by tambourine and harp.  For the LORD delights in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.  Let the faithful rejoice in this honor.  Let them sing for joy as they lie on their beds.  Let the praises of God be in their mouths, and a sharp sword in their hands – to execute vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, to bind their kings with shackles and their leaders with iron chains, to execute the judgment written against them.  This is the glory of his faithful ones.  Praise the LORD!  (Psalms 149:1-9 NLT)

Bible Quotes for May 9

Slavery Allowed

If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years.  Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom.  If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year.  But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him.  If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master.  But the slave may plainly declare, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children.  I would rather not go free.’  If he does this, his master must present him before God.  Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl.  After that, the slave will belong to his master forever.  (Exodus 21:2-6 NLT)

Bible Quote for May 8

Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death.  (Exodus 21:15 NAB)

Bible Quote for May 7

Slavery Allowed

However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you.  You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land.  You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance.  You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.  (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

Bible Quote for May 6

Sex Slaves

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are.  If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.  But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her.  And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter.  If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife.  If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.  (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

Bible Quotes for May 5

God’s Threat 5

If you refuse to obey all the terms of this law that are written in this book, and if you do not fear the glorious and awesome name of the LORD your God, then the LORD will overwhelm both you and your children with indescribable plagues.  These plagues will be intense and without relief, making you miserable and unbearably sick.  He will bring against you all the diseases of Egypt that you feared so much, and they will claim you.  The LORD will bring against you every sickness and plague there is, even those not mentioned in this Book of the Law, until you are destroyed.  Though you are as numerous as the stars in the sky, few of you will be left because you would not listen to the LORD your God.  “Just as the LORD has found great pleasure in helping you to prosper and multiply, the LORD will find pleasure in destroying you, until you disappear from the land you are about to enter and occupy.  For the LORD will scatter you among all the nations from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship foreign gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, gods made of wood and stone!  There among those nations you will find no place of security and rest. And the LORD will cause your heart to tremble, your eyesight to fail, and your soul to despair.  Your lives will hang in doubt. You will live night and day in fear, with no reason to believe that you will see the morning light.  In the morning you will say, ‘If only it were night!’ And in the evening you will say, ‘If only it were morning!’ You will say this because of your terror at the awesome horrors you see around you.  Then the LORD will send you back to Egypt in ships, a journey I promised you would never again make.  There you will offer to sell yourselves to your enemies as slaves, but no one will want to buy you.  (Deuteronomy 28:58-68 NLT)

Bible Quotes for May 4

God’s Threat 4 – Eating Babies

If you refuse to listen to the LORD your God and to obey the commands and laws he has given you, all these curses will pursue and overtake you until you are destroyed.  These horrors will serve as a sign and warning among you and your descendants forever.  Because you have not served the LORD your God with joy and enthusiasm for the abundant benefits you have received, you will serve your enemies whom the LORD will send against you.  You will be left hungry, thirsty, naked, and lacking in everything.  They will oppress you harshly until you are destroyed.  “The LORD will bring a distant nation against you from the end of the earth, and it will swoop down on you like an eagle.  It is a nation whose language you do not understand, a fierce and heartless nation that shows no respect for the old and no pity for the young.  Its armies will devour your livestock and crops, and you will starve to death.  They will leave you no grain, new wine, olive oil, calves, or lambs, bringing about your destruction.  They will lay siege to your cities until all the fortified walls in your land – the walls you trusted to protect you – are knocked down.  They will attack all the towns in the land the LORD your God has given you.  The siege will be so severe that you will eat the flesh of your own sons and daughters, whom the LORD your God has given you.  The most tenderhearted man among you will have no compassion for his own brother, his beloved wife, and his surviving children.  He will refuse to give them a share of the flesh he is devouring – the flesh of one of his own children – because he has nothing else to eat during the siege that your enemy will inflict on all your towns.  The most tender and delicate woman among you – so delicate she would not so much as touch her feet to the ground – will be cruel to the husband she loves and to her own son or daughter.  She will hide from them the afterbirth and the new baby she has borne, so that she herself can secretly eat them.  She will have nothing else to eat during the siege and terrible distress that your enemy will inflict on all your towns.  (Deuteronomy 28:45-57 NLT)

Bible Quote for May 3

God’s Threat 3 

The LORD will exile you and the king you crowned to a nation unknown to you and your ancestors.  Then in exile you will worship gods of wood and stone!  You will become an object of horror, a proverb and a mockery among all the nations to which the LORD sends you.  “You will plant much but harvest little, for locusts will eat your crops.  You will plant vineyards and care for them, but you will not drink the wine or eat the grapes, for worms will destroy the vines.  You will grow olive trees throughout your land, but you will never use the olive oil, for the trees will drop the fruit before it is ripe.  You will have sons and daughters, but you will not keep them, for they will be led away into captivity.  Swarms of insects will destroy your trees and crops.  The foreigners living among you will become stronger and stronger, while you become weaker and weaker.  They will lend money to you, not you to them. They will be the head, and you will be the tail! (Deuteronomy 28:36-44 NLT)

Bible Quotes for May 2

God’s Threat 2

You will be engaged to a woman, but another man will ravish her.  You will build a house, but someone else will live in it.  You will plant a vineyard, but you will never enjoy its fruit.  Your ox will be butchered before your eyes, but you won’t get a single bite of the meat.  Your donkey will be driven away, never to be returned. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and no one will be there to help you.  You will watch as your sons and daughters are taken away as slaves.  Your heart will break as you long for them, but nothing you do will help.  A foreign nation you have never heard about will eat the crops you worked so hard to grow.  You will suffer under constant oppression and harsh treatment.  You will go mad because of all the tragedy around you.  The LORD will cover you from head to foot with incurable boils.  (Deuteronomy 28:30-35 NLT)

Bible Quote for May 1

God’s Threat 1

The LORD himself will send against you curses, confusion, and disillusionment in everything you do, until at last you are completely destroyed for doing evil and forsaking me.  The LORD will send diseases among you until none of you are left in the land you are about to enter and occupy.  The LORD will strike you with wasting disease, fever, and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, and with blight and mildew. These devastations will pursue you until you die.  The skies above will be as unyielding as bronze, and the earth beneath will be as hard as iron.  The LORD will turn your rain into sand and dust, and it will pour down from the sky until you are destroyed.  “The LORD will cause you to be defeated by your enemies.  You will attack your enemies from one direction, but you will scatter from them in seven!  You will be an object of horror to all the kingdoms of the earth.  Your dead bodies will be food for the birds and wild animals, and no one will be there to chase them away.  “The LORD will afflict you with the boils of Egypt and with tumors, scurvy, and the itch, from which you cannot be cured.  The LORD will strike you with madness, blindness, and panic.  You will grope around in broad daylight, just like a blind person groping in the darkness, and you will not succeed at anything you do. You will be oppressed and robbed continually, and no one will come to save you.  (Deuteronomy 28:20-29 NLT)
