His uncles, the 400 Mimixcoas, who hated Mixcoatl, killed and buried him. Quetzalcoatl looked for his father and found his bones and buried them in the Hill of Mixcoatl (Mixcoatepetl). Informed of this, the murderers, Apanecatl, Zolton, and Cuilton, told Quetzalcoatl that they would be angry if he inaugurated (drilled with the fire sticks) his temple (on the hill) by sacrificing a rabbit or a serpent, because the required sacrifices were an eagle, a jaguar, and a kind of wolf. Quetzalcoatl told the three animals that they would not die, but that, on the contrary, they would eat the three uncles to inaugurate the temple. He went to the temple through an underground gallery and lit the inaugural fire.
Later, the Lord asked Cain, “Where is your brother?” Cain answered, “I know not. Am I my brother’s keeper (Moser, 1999: 4)?” The Lord said, “What have you done! The dead man’s blood cried onto me from the ground since you slew him mercilessly (ibid, 1999:4).” God let Cain wander on the earth to expiate his crime. Then Cain said he was afraid to be killed by other people. And the Lord set a sign upon Cain lest any finding him should kill him, and said to Cain, “For anyone who shall kill you, vengeance will be seven times to him (ibid,

On one particular outing of Saul and his men who were searching to kill David there arose a certain opportunity for David to kill Saul. Saul was in cave and was very vulnerable while David was also deeper inside the cave.
In the excerpt for Night by Elie Wiesel, Elie was in disbelief of what his God let happen but he tried to live with it even though he could never forget it. In the passage he says, “Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust.” Elie mentions his God being murdered because he could not believe his God let all of this happen, let all of those people die. The narrator’s choice of the word “murdered” in that sentence helps show the reader how horrified the author was. Elie’s purpose of the message he was trying to convey was traumatized he was about the people being murdered left and right, and his God was letting it happen.

The blood dried on his face during the ride out of town (966). This was a sense of pride for Sartoris, weird huh that he got beat up but still prideful, but Sartoris had defended the family name. A little later in the story Snopes plans to burn down a barn and it being De Spain’s barn, Sartoris feels that it is morally wrong and decided to tell De Spain that it was going to happen. De Spain then goes out and kills Snopes. As I said early in the paragraph before this that Sartoris has a hard time deciding between being loyal to his family or the law and in this case he was loyal to the law but the rest of the family was loyal and they still wind up alone, “… no blood to stick to...” This is that non-literal sense of blood if you didn’t catch
