Thou Shalt Not Kill. One of the 10 commandments, counted as the 6th commandment by Protestant traditions and the 5th commandment by Catholic tradition. The command prohibits purposefully or accidentally taking someones life.
Martin Luther believed that the 6th commandment was directed towards individuals, but did not prevent governing bodies from going to war or punishing criminals.
