Mitzvah #49 - Do not murder

One may not take another's life.

This prohibition includes hastening somebody's demise, including touching somebody in their death throes.

A murderer is killed by Bet Din by the sword.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Pasuk: "Do not murder" (6th of the 10 commandments)
