Hey guys, I'm doing this essay for a Biblical Ethics class. I am supposed to give the Ethical implications of a specific passage and I chose Matt 26:52, "Put your sword back into its place; for all who take the sword will perish by the sword" More wellknown translations say "He who lives by the sword will die by the sword". What I was wondering is... are there anyother texts where violence is condemned with the same consequences? I know Exodus 20 gives you "Though shalt not kill" but I'm looking for other examples of consequences to give my topic stronger Biblical background. I already have PLENTY of secondary sources lined up, but I don't know the Bible well enough to pull these things out of it on command.
