"It was said to them of old time, 'Honor they Heavenly Father and thy Earthly Mother, and do their commandments, that thy days may be long upon the earth.' And next afterward was given the commandment, 'Thou shalt not kill,' for life is given to all by God, and that which God has given, let not man take away. For I tell you truly, from one Mother proceeds all that lives upon the earth. Therefore, he who kills, kills his brother. And from him will the Earthly Mother turn away, and will pluck from him her quickening breasts. And he will be shunned by her angels, and Satan will have his dwelling in his body. And the flesh of slain bests in his body will become his own tomb. For I tell you truly, he who kills, kills himself, and whoso eats the flesh of slain beasts, eats of the body of death.
For in his blood every drop of their blood turns to poison; in his breath their breath to stink; in his flesh their flesh to boils; in his bones their bones to chalk; in his bowels their bowels to decay; in his eyes their eyes to scales; in his ears their ears to waxy issue. And their death will become his death. For only in the service of your Heavenly Father are your debts of seven years forgiven in seven days. But Satan forgives you nothing and you must pay him for all. 'Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot; burning for burning, wound for wound; life for life, death for death.' For the wages of sin is death. Kill not, neither eat the flesh of your innocent prey, lest you become the slaves of Satan. For that is the path of sufferings, and it leads unto death.
But do the will of God, that his angels may serve you on the way of life. Obey, therefore, the words of Gd: 'Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that moveth and liveth upon earth, wherein there is breath of life, I give every green herb for meat.
Also the milk of every thing that moveth and liveth upon earth shall be
meat for you; even as the green herb have I given unto them, so I give their
milk unto you. But flesh, and the blood which quickens it, shall ye not eat.
And surely, your spurting blood will I require, your blood wherein is your
soul; I will require all slain beasts, and the souls of all slain men. For I
the Lord thy God am a God strong and jealous, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the children unto the thrid and fourth generation of them that
hate me; and show mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my
commandments. Love the Lord thy God with all they heart, and with all they
soul, and with all thy strength: this is the first and greatest commandment.'
And the second is life unto it: 'Love thy neighbour as thyself.' There is no
other commandment greater than these."
