An Attack on Life?

December 11, 2010

An Attack on Life?--Such an assault as is described here is an attack on the very idea of life – a threat to a man’s legacy.

The sixth commandment

Deuteronomy 25.11, 12

When men fight with one another and the wife of the one draws near to rescue her husband from the hand of him who is beating him and puts out her hand and seizes him by the private parts, then you shall cut off her hand. Your eye shall have no pity.”

Such an assault as is described here is an attack on the very idea of life – a threat to a man’s legacy. Even though her husband may be getting the worse of this scuffle, a woman must not think to attack her husband’s assailant by seeking to injure his private parts. He is, after all, still a man, and his private parts represent his ability to fulfill his God-given mandate to fill the earth. She must not take it in hand to jeopardize his ability to do that. Presumably, there must have been other ways to come to the defense of her husband, for the penalty for this violation is severe.

This series of In the Gates we present a detailed explanation of the Law of God, beginning with the Ten Commandments, and working through the statutes and rules that accompany each commandment.
