A Puritan Catechism: Question 56

Q. What is forbidden in the sixth commandment?

A. The sixth commandment forbids the taking away of our own life (Acts 16:28), or the life of our neighbour unjustly (Gen. 9:6), or whatever tends to it (Prov. 24:11-12).

Not sure if I'd ever heard that verse before--pondering it what it means to "rescue those who are being taken away to death."
