Death was the punishment of striking or even reviling a parent; blasphemy; Sabbath breaking; witchcraft; rape; incestuous and unnatural connection; man-stealing; idolatry. Capital punishments were stoning, burning, the sword, and strangulation. Infractions of divine law, such as adultery, filial insubordination, any profanation of El-Shaddai, were punishable by death. The law usually allowed the victim to escape, and it was understood that any condemned man might take with him one donkey and three water bags.
