ETERNAL FOUNDATIONAL BIBLICAL UNIVERSAL BEHAVIOR One law and one ordinance shall be for you [ISRAELITES], and for the stranger that sojourneth with you [Israelites]. Numbers 15:16 ASV
For the assembly, there shall be one statute for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you, a statute for ever throughout your generations: as ye are, so shall the sojourner be before Jehovah.  Numbers 15:15 ASV

Our duty towards our neighbors

Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may

be long in the land which Jehovah thy God giveth

thee.  Exodus 20:12 ASV

The same Hebrew word which is used to decree the duty of children to their parents is the same word which is used to decree the attitude of man towards the Sabbath day of Jesus. ( 20) Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing in the Lord.  (21)  Fathers, provoke not your children, that they be not discouraged. Colossians 3:20-21 ASV  Cursed is he who dishonors his father or his mother! And all the people shall say, Amen! Deuteronomy 27:16 KJ3 And he who curses his father or his mother, dying he shall die. Exodus 21:17 KJ3 Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.  Leviticus 19:3 KJV Honor (glorify, weigh heavily )your father and mother, Interestingly, the same Hebrew word which is used to decree the duty of children to their parents is the same word which is used to decree the attitude of man towards the Sabbath day of Jesus (Isaiah 58:13.

EVEN LOVE OUR ENEMIES.

HMM!

Matthew 5:43-48 ASV  Ye have heard that it was said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy:  (44)  but I say unto you, Love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you;  (45)  that ye may be sons of your Father who is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust.  (46)  For if ye love them that love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?  (47)  And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the Gentiles the same?  (48)  Ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Thou shalt not kill.  Exodus 20:13 ASV

Whoever sheds man’s blood, his blood shall be shed by man. For He made man in the image of God. (Genesis 9:6 KJ3)

Extradition for murders

(11) And if a man hates his neighbor, and lies in wait for him, and rises up against him, and strikes his life from him, so that he dies, and flees to one of these cities,  (12)  then the elders of his city shall send and bring from him there, and give him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die. Deuteronomy 19:11-12 LITV 

Does Moses still support the death penalty for anyone who kills another?

Is it possible that one can imagine Jesus downgrading or reversing His judgments on the killing of another man who is made at His image, because he reversed ‘the eye for eye and tooth for tooth’ judgment? Well, Jesus says in Matthew 5:17-18 that not even a dot on the i in the law may change, unless He specifically instructed a change as in ‘go and sin no more’. Remember that God did not insinuate that His judgments for breaking Moses in Israel must also be enforced in the Gentile countries. The precedence is that He left Egypt alone in its depravity and did not command the Israelites to go wage conquest wars to enforce the judgments in Moses. He did not condone their depravity and violence either.

Thou shalt not commit adultery.  Exodus 20:14 ASV

Even though adultery is well defined in the Scriptures, the nations hold their own views of what constitutes adultery. A believer is expected to follow Moses for guidance on any religious or behavioral matter to make sure that we comply with the word of God. Adultery centers around a married woman’s involvement with any another man, not involvement with a single woman. (10) And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbor's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. (11) And the man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (12) And if a man lie with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them. (13) And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (14) And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you. (15) And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast. (16) And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (17) And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a shameful thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of the children of their people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity. (18) And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath made naked her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people. (19) And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister, nor of thy father's sister; for he hath made naked his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity. (20) And if a man shall lie with his uncle's wife, he hath uncovered his uncle's nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless. (21) And if a man shall take his brother's wife, it is impurity: he hath uncovered his brother's nakedness; they shall be childless. Leviticus 20:10-21 ASV The capital punishment judgments for certain sins were only to be enforced inside Israel, not within the Gentiles outside Israel (Deuteronomy 21:21). Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death with stones. So you shall purge the evil from your midst, and all Israel shall hear, and fear. Deuteronomy 21:21 ESV A married woman may not carry a child of another man by insemination or be a surrogate mother! Literally, the verse says that a man may not give his sperms to seed the woman of his companion which is neighbor in the translations: And to the wife of your companion you shall not give your emission of semen, to be unclean with her. Leviticus 18:20 CLV

Thou shalt not steal.  Exodus 20:15 ASV

nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:10 ASV Trust not in oppression, And become not vain in robbery: If riches increase, set not your heart thereon. Psalms 62:10 ASV And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death. Exodus 21:16 ASV If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and he deal with him as a slave, or sell him; then that thief shall die: so shalt thou put away the evil from the midst of thee. Deuteronomy 24:7 ASV for fornicators, for abusers of themselves with men, for menstealers, for liars, for false swearers, and if there be any other thing contrary to the sound doctrine; 1 Timothy 1:10 ASV Ye shall not steal; neither shall ye deal falsely, nor lie one to another. Leviticus 19:11 ASV Thou shalt not oppress thy neighbor, nor rob him: the wages of a hired servant shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. Leviticus 19:13 ASV Diverse weights, and diverse measures, Both of them alike are an abomination to Jehovah. Proverbs 20:10 ASV A false balance is an abomination to Jehovah; But a just weight is his delight. Proverbs 11:1 ASV (22) Rob not the poor, because he is poor; Neither oppress the afflicted in the gate: (23) For Jehovah will plead their cause, And despoil of life those that despoil them. Proverbs 22:22-23 ASV The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery; yea, they have vexed the poor and needy, and have oppressed the sojourner wrongfully. Ezekiel 22:29 ASV Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by injustice; that useth his neighbor's service without wages, and giveth him not his hire; Jeremiah 22:13 ASV For let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evil-doer, or as a meddler in other men's matters: 1 Peter 4:15 ASV

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.  Exodus 20:16 ASV

Speak not one against another, brethren. He that speaketh against a brother, or judgeth his brother, speaketh against the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judgest the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. James 4:11 ASV Exodus 23:6-7 LITV You shall not pervert the judgment of your needy one in his lawsuit. 7 You shall keep far away from a false matter. And do not kill the innocent and the righteous; for I will not justify the wicked. Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbor: I am Jehovah. Leviticus 19:16 ASV (5) Whoso privily slandereth his neighbor, him will I destroy: Him that hath a high look and a proud heart will I not suffer. (6) Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: He that walketh in a perfect way, he shall minister unto me. (7) He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: He that speaketh falsehood shall not be established before mine eyes. Psalms 101:5-7 ASV for fornicators, for homosexuals, for slave-traders, for liars, for perjurers, and anything else that is contrary to sound doctrine, 1 Timothy 1:10 MKJV

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's

wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor

anything that is thy neighbor's.  (Exodus 20:17 ASV

And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” Luke 12:15 ESV Put to death therefore your members which are upon the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry; Colossians 3:5 ASV And they covet fields, and seize them; and houses, and take them away: and they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage. Micah 2:2 ASV nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:10 ASV

Say not unto thy neighbor, Go, and come again, And to-morrow I will give; When thou hast it by thee.  Proverbs

3:28 ASV

Universal Behavior  One law and one ordinance shall be for you [ISRAELITES],
For the assembly, there shall be one statute for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you, a statute for ever throughout your generations: as ye are, so shall the sojourner be before Jehovah.  Numbers 15:15 ASV
