Complete list of killing in Bible and estimated total (Including Apocryphal killings)

This one I picked from http://dwindlinginunbelief.blogspot.com/

How amazing people spend their time collect such thing. This is the continuity of the previous article. Please note, I’m NOT trying to criticize God for what He had been doing, but people, especially Christian, attack Al-Qur’an by claiming “Promoting Violent” because of the word KILLING inside the verses. When you read the Old Testament, you will see the nature of communication between GOD and His Prophets and Messengers. GOD is Supreme Being. He hate it when His creation worship other than Him. He created human race and He has right to make them vanish from this earth. In Al-Qur’an, the order of killing related WAR because in Prophet’s (peace be upon him) life passes many wars and Allah the Almighty given permission to fight. That’s it. No such thing Allah the Almighty legalize killing the innocents no matter what their race or religion.

The table shows two numbers: the number given by the Bible, if any, and an estimate, when no biblical number is available.


Total number killed by God in the Bible
– Using biblical numbers only: 2,821,364
 – With estimates25 million

(The table has been updated to include God’s killings in the Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical books. I’ll be adding the missing Apocryphal stories in the next few days.)
