Restrictions on Causing Suffering to a Living Creature

Updated: Nov 14, 2022

Divine Code for November 10, 2022

Today: Pages 281-282

From 7:1 -- 7:3

As implied from the statement of the Torah, ''And you shall rule over the fish of the sea, the fowl of the heavens, and all beasts that swarm on the earth,'' Adam was granted dominion over all living things and given permission to use them to perform any labor or tasks. Noah was also granted permission to kill an animal to eat any part of its flesh, and to use portions of its body for other useful purposes (for example, its hide for clothing and its bones to fashion utensils). Mankind was not, however, granted permission to kill or wound any animals purposelessly, or to cause them unnecessary pain. This is not permitted with regard to any animal, even fish, sheretz creatures, reptiles, or other small crawling creatures.
