If the quality “killer” clearly affects the human in me, then it needs to be eradicated. It is impossible to mitigate or justify it even if I receive benefit from it because this benefit can be only egoistic. Therefore, in no case can we mitigate the court!
The Torah, “Numbers,” 35:32: You shall not accept ransom for one who has fled to his city of refuge, to allow him to return to live in the Land, before the Cohen has died.
Let’s say one person accidentally killed another and fled to the city of refuge. One of his relatives comes to the authorities and says: “We will pay you anything you want, cattle, money, we will do everything, just please, allow him to return to his wife and kids.” But no one is allowed to accept a ransom for one who has fled.
Question: Does it mean that the person has to undergo final correction?
Answer: This is not the only thing, here we are faced with another condition. The Creator arranged it so that he killed another person because nothing is done without the upper intention, and therefore we can’t use our earthy calculations here.
It is said that the killer is allowed to return back only when the high priest dies, because then the whole system of control will be replaced from above.
