CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
35:19 He shall slay him - Either by himself, as the following words shew; so it is a permission, that he may do it without offence to God or danger to himself: or by the magistrate, from whom he shall demand justice: so it is a command.
You have banished me from the land and from your presence; you have made me a homeless wanderer. Anyone who finds me will kill me!"
Or if someone strikes and kills another person with a wooden object, it is murder, and the murderer must be put to death.
So if someone hates another person and pushes him or throws a dangerous object at him and he dies, it is murder.
2 Samuel 14:7
Now the rest of the family is demanding, 'Let us have your son. We will execute him for murdering his brother. He doesn't deserve to inherit his family's property.' They want to extinguish the only coal I have left, and my husband's name and family will disappear from the face of the earth."
2 Samuel 14:11
Then she said, "Please swear to me by the LORD your God that you won't let anyone take vengeance against my son. I want no more bloodshed." "As surely as the LORD lives," he replied, "not a hair on your son's head will be disturbed!"
