'Slash' in the Bible
You must not slash your body for a dead person or incise a tattoo on yourself. I am the Lord.
You are to burn up one third [of it] in the city when the days of the siege have ended; you are to take one third and slash [it] with the sword all around the city; and you are to scatter one third to the wind, for I will draw a sword [to chase] after them.
Slash to the right; turn to the left- wherever your blade is directed.
That army will pelt them with stones and slash them with their swords; they will kill their sons and daughters and burn their houses.
They do not cry to Me from their hearts; rather, they wail on their beds. They slash themselves for grain and wine; they turn away from Me.
Now daughter [who is] under attack, you slash yourself [in grief]; a siege is set against us! They are striking the judge of Israel on the cheek with a rod.
