Should it be Thou shall not Kill or Murder?

    I know the Cepher was creative by working hard to get the correct words in the Cepher. And I also know a ton of time was spent making sure passages were correct. I was talking to my father about the cepher telling them how its a close bible to what the hebrew was. They asked me ok so what does it say in the ten commandments. Does it use the work Kill or Murder? I looked it up and it used the word Kill. This is where I was confused because shouldnt it be murder? Doesnt the hebrew say murder?

    I would love some clarification on this becuase I want to be able to defend the cepher.

    The Hebrew word is "ratsach" which means to "dash in pieces, i.e. kill a human being), especially to murder:—put to death, kill, (man-) slay(-er), murder(-er).

    The command in Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy specifically is in regard to killing a human being.

    So would murder be more accurate?

    Kill is accurate and is not misleading.

    ok I was just asking because I wanted to know how to answer this question. Thanks for your input. I also asked because in the bible God tells them to kill people in the holy land that they want to take. I was thinking Murder would be accurate because murder is justified killing. But if its kill then would they be breaking the law?
