"Whoever strikes a man so that he dies shall be put to death.
But if he did not lie in wait for him, but God let him fall into his hand, then I will appoint for you a place to which he may flee.
But if a man willfully attacks another to kill him treacherously, you shall take him from my altar, that he may die.
"Whoever strikes his father or his mother shall be put to death.
"Whoever steals a man, whether he sells him or is found in possession of him, shall be put to death.
"Whoever curses his father or his mother shall be put to death.
