-12 But if any
man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally
that he die, and fleeth into one of these cities: ... Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die.
Thou shalt not kill.
He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death. ... But if a man come presumptuously
upon his neighbour, to slay
him with guile; thou shalt take him
from mine altar, that he may die.
