5 If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in his beast, and shall feed in another man's field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make restitution.
9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

Matthew Henry's Exodus Chapter 22 Bible commentary...
- The people of God should ever be ready to show mildness and mercy, according to the spirit of these laws. We must answer to God, not only for what we do maliciously, but for what we do heedlessly. Therefore, when we have done harm to our neighbour, we should make restitution, though not compelled by law. Let these scriptures lead our souls to remember, that if the grace of God has indeed appeared to us, then it has taught us, and enabled us so to conduct ourselves by its holy power, that denying ungodliness and wordly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world, #Tit 2:12|. And the grace of God teaches us, that as the Lord is our portion, there is enough in him to satisfy all the desires of our souls.

The word of God is not debatable. If it is says let the witch die leave it just like that. May be if they start dying, it will send strong signalls to the rest of the witches and wizards to stop pestering innocent souls

@Rai's comment that the original bible word meant poisoner, not witch. Now, don't you all feel a little silly? And, as "christians" talk about killing people?! Shame on you.

I think we have to determine what "suffer" means here, because “thou shall not kill” comes into play, the priests were given authority to punish transgressors of the Torah. However “eye for an eye” was also part of the Law.

I find this bible portion very interesting and I have question that bothers me, what of if you have a wife who is a witch who has let you surfer for long before you discovered? Please send me a prayer point that is adequate.

God had spoken to Noah and his family not to eat flesh with blood (Genesis9:4) as well as to us (Leviticus 17:12) any flesh killed by beast still has blood but the blood should be poured into the dust (Leviticus 17:13). Thus holy people don't eat blood.

The word of God is Yes and Amen! God is not a man that He will lie. As we must keep His words, “we shall not suffer a witch to live”. Therefore with constant prayer and fasting witches and wizards must not live but either repent or suffer consequences in Jesus’ Name.! Amen. Exodus 22:18.
