Exodus 22

This chapter, like chapter 21, gives God's judgment on a variety of situations and circumstances. In reading the comments by others, it seems that most people focused on verse 18 about not allowing witches to live. I think this verse shows how offensive witchcraft and sorcery is to God.

There are many other topics spoken of here that discuss how t bring a just end to things that happen in this society that God is growing into a nation of His choosing. He wants to shape them into a mindset that honors Him, believes His decrees are right and just, that worships only Him, that respects parents, rulers, judges, that execute fairness in determining an offender's sentence, and with giving unto God the first things of our life.

The judgements and scenarios spoken of here do give us a view into the social and civil life of this time and of these people. In today's world, some countries still judge in similar ways to this chapter. In most modern countries, our justice system is not in a hurry to execute people for crimes. But sometimes it is the best thing to do if a person is so seared of conscience that he/she wantonly kills, maims, and continues unrepentantly to do this.

Unlike the nation Israel under God's rule, we have no such authority or command from God to condemn witches to death.

If murder has been committed or if someone is culpable in the death of another, then the proper authorities should be involved.

Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound. Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. (2 Timothy 2:8-10)

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. (Psalm 27:1-3)

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
