View Wesley's Notes for Exodus 21:24

21:24 Eye for eye - The execution of this law is not put into the hands of private persons, as if every man might avenge himself, which would introduce universal confusion. The tradition of the elders seems to have put this corrupt gloss upon it. But magistrates had an eye to this rule in punishing offenders, and doing right to those that are injured.

How does it work if three differant people have said something wrongful & hurtfull to those same differant people you have done nothing wronged by you but have said very hurtful things to you about your dead & saved son ?

View Wesley\'s Notes for Exodus 21:24

As per the above notes, the Holy Bible\'s verses has to be ruled out by some body elses.

The verses Exodus 21:24 is very clear in itself and need no clarifications, justifications from any others.

The Holy Quran also witnesses and confirms that in the religion Torah Eye for ..... is mentioned and giving additional ruling in the verses 2:178, 179 and 194, 4:92 and 4:148, 5:45, 16:126, 17:33, 22:60, 42:39,40, 41, 42 and 43.
