  • "If men fight, and hurt a woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely, yet no harm follows, he shall surely be punished accordingly as the woman's husband imposes on him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. But if any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe."

    Men fight-- a woman is hurt--she delivers prematurely. If no harm follows (the baby is OKAY) he shall still pay as the judges determine and as the husband imposes on him. If harm follows (the baby is injured or killed), he shall have to pay equal compensation.

    This would be so much easier if people could just read what the Bible says!!!

  • The person that wrote that does not know the Bible. The Bible does NOT condone abortion.

  • That is so silly. The Bible does condemn abortion and that guy totally doesn't understand that passage of Scripture.

    "This is an example of a case of retribution, where a pregnant woman is injured in a conflict, and she gives birth prematurely. A penalty is only to be assessed if there is lasting damage.

    If no lasting damage results, there are no damages awarded. Here, God recognizes that some bad things just happen, and we get over them - and move on." -- David Guzik Bible Commentary
