  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 104. The proverb today is an

  • eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here.

  • Sometimes this proverb is shortened to just an eye-for-an-eye. So sometimes

  • people don't say the whole, the whole, the whole proverb. Some sometimes they'll

  • just say well something is an eye for an eye. You know , he believes in an eye for

  • an eye. But the real full proverb is an eye for

  • an eye, a tooth for tooth meaning of course the idea that if somebody you

  • know injured you and knocked out your eye you have the right to injure them

  • and knock out their eye or if they broke one of your teeth you have the right to

  • do the same punishment back to them. You can break one of their teeth. So let's go

  • on. The proverb derived from the code of Hammurabi . Okay. Hammurabi

  • was the king of Babylon from 1792 to 1750 BC. So that's how far this actually

  • goes back. This goes back to the Babylonian Empire. You know, predating you

  • know before the Roman Empire before the Greek Empire you know, even much further

  • back. It goes all the way back to the Babylonian Empire. Yes. So yeah Hammurabi

  • was the king but yeah we we covered that. So this is a biblical quote Matthew 5:38.

  • So this, this proverb also appears at least once in the Bible and this is the

  • quote from the Bible .\"Ye have her ye have heard it hath been said an eye for an

  • eye and a tooth for tooth . \" So so even the Bible has a quote from this proverb as

  • well. All right ahead of course you know it also reminds me you can go back and

  • check one of my really older videos on a Gandhi quote Gandhi had a... I thought I

  • had a good quote that he picked from this proverb.

  • He says an eye for an eye only makes the whole world blind. Which means that if

  • you really follow this philosophy well you hurt me that I hurt you and then

  • probably you hurt me back I hurt you bike you hurt me back I hurt you back.

  • And it's kind of like never ending so Gandhi was kind of bringing out that

  • point. So if you like that idea. Go back and check that old video I did on Gandhi.

  • A Gandhi quote. He his quote actually worked off of this old proverb. All right.

  • And we just give one example here. This is a typical way that it might be used.

  • So there are many who believe that those who are found guilty of murder should

  • get the death penalty or at least I think in a lot of states they probably

  • don't give it for all murders but they might give it for a premeditated murder.

  • Like if somebody planned to murder of somebody that that's usually like the

  • first-degree murder. The one that's most serious. So probably if some people were

  • in favor of a death penalty that's the one they would probably do it for. We

  • know a lot of times there are accidental murders but premeditated murder is

  • probably the one that they would want. So they believed in the philosophy of an

  • eye for an eye and a tooth for tooth. So this is just the way that we would use

  • it. Okay, Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it's clear.Thank you for your time.

  • Bye-bye.
