Do Not Kill Yourself!

Updated: Dec 10, 2022

Divine Code for December 3, 2022

Today: Page 324

Topic 1:25 -- 2:1

Although a person has committed an action for which he is liable for capital punishment, it is forbidden for any other person to kill him, only a court has jurisdiction to judge and punish that transgressor for his actions.

One who takes his own life intentionally is a murderer and is liable to punishment by G-d for the capital sin of murder, as it is stated, "But your blood of your [own] souls I will demand" (Genesis 9:5)

See exceptions in topic 2.2/2.3 in the topics of tomorrow
