Re: The Bible regarding life at conception
i've never found those words
but i have found these
top one is pretty specific
Psalm 139:16- Here David is speaking when he says to God, "Your eyes saw even the embryo of me, And in your book all its parts were down in writing." Notice he said ME. He was person, not just some mass of tissue.
Job 3:3- ‘An able-bodied man has been conceived!’ Job says an "able-bodied man" is conceived. Not some cells. Not a non-living thing, a person. thats the point of conception argument i have ..
Exodus 21:22, 23- "In case men should struggle with each other and they really hurt a pregnant woman and her children do come out but no fatal accident occurs, he is to have damages imposed upon him without fail according to what the owner of the woman may lay upon him; and he must give it through the justices. But if a fatal accident should occur, then you must give soul for soul"
That soul is the unborn child. If a man were to kill that child he had to pay with his own soul.
so under the law then a unborn child ( without distinction of age ) was a person ..
hope this helps
