There is no 34th verse in Genesis 9. If you are referring to Genesis
9:3-4 then we have a commentary on it (Genesis 9:1-4), and also see the one
on Genesis 8:20-22.
Genesis 8:20-22 - God's Curious Remark
Genesis 9:1-4 - A Commentary on God's Concession
In reference to Luke 23:34. Only God determines what is a mortal sin, such a decision is not in our realm. It may have something to do with God being able to see the intent of the heart.
Murder is most often premeditated, or a knowing act, even if it is enacted very quickly. In this frame of reference, isnít the suffering and death of billions of animals every year cause the premeditated acts of human beings? Thus to us, it is murder!
In the Love of the Lord,
