Maybe, but I'm smarter than the people in the Bible. As Bertrand Russell

Take all the heads of the people and hang them up before the Lord against
The LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of
man, and the firstborn of beast.

.... Thou shalt go in unto her. Deuteronomy 21:11-13
The LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself,
above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your

daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend.
For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to
The Lord is a man of War.
Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the

And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and
