What the sixth commandment is basically saying is that life and death are God's business. He is Lord of life and death, and we may not take life without his authorisation. Rather, we must respect life as an aspect of our reverence for God. We should especially respect human life because it is the image of God, that image that grounds the first prohibition of bloodshed in Scripture. Genesis 9:5-6
