Murder in The Bible

One of those things you vaguely knew but are glad to be reminded of now &

again (from a reader): “A note on the Ten Commandments: In Hebrew, the word

for ‘kill’ is ‘harag,’ while the word for murder is ‘ratzach.’ The Ten

Commandments (both versions) read ‘Lo Tirtzach,’ that is, ‘You shall not

murder.’”
