Divine Code for December 17, 2022
Today: Page 349
Topic Chapter 5:6 -- 5:9
When someone inflicts injury on another - even when it would be permissible - which is not normally fatal, but leads to someone's death, is not liable to punishment from a court for murder as there is then an unintentional killing.
Consider, for example, a doctor who treats his patient and the patient dies as a result of the medical act. (Also read topic 10 on page 354 on this subject)
Or think of situations where someone wishes to defend themselves.
Or think of someone throwing a small stone and what would not normally lead to death in a healthy person.
Curious about the whole page? You can read it in The Divine Code.
