"Thou shall not commit murder!"
Thanks for you input.
In the ten commandments "kill" has always been understood as "murder", at least it always should be.

The actual commandment says Thou shall not commit murder
Agreed. I think the problem arose in the 1600s King James translation, when in those times, "kill" meant murder and "slay" meant kill (as in combat). It's a convenient mis-translation for the anti-death penalty types or those seeking to dodge the draft.
