INSIGHT: # 6 – A Special Number and a Special Lesson

Commandment #6 – No Killing!

Commandment #6 – No Killing!

“Do not murder.”

No!” answered Bnei Yisrael. “We will not murder.”

This important commandment is short and to the point. Two Hebrew words: Lo Tirtzach. Do not murder. It is absolutely forbidden to take someone’s life. Every soul is a creation of HaShem.

# 6 – A Special Number and a Special Lesson

“Do Not Murder” is the sixth commandment in the Ten Commandments, and the words Lo Tirtzach in Hebrew contain 6 letters. Count them – לֹא תִּרְצָח!

Is this a plain coincidence?

Of course not! If you recall, from the first Parsha of the Torah, the very first man, Adam, was created on the sixth day. When he was created, he was all of mankind! Nobody else existed.

So HaShem is telling us, that if one dares to murder another human being it’s as if he had killed the entire world!
