Yitro: Ibn Ezra: Mitzvah 34 – Concept 482

“You shall not kill.” (Exodus 20:13; Rambam Hilchot Rotzeiach U’shmirat Nefesh – The Laws of Murder and the Preservation of Life) We are not only prohibited from killing directly with our own hands, but we are also forbidden to testify falsely to a crime that will lead to a person’s execution, from gossiping about another in a way that can cause him danger, to give advice that will lead to danger, or to not save him from danger, such as if you have information that can protect him from danger and you withhold that information. (Ibn Ezra)
