More than one witness was required in criminal cases (Deuteronomy 17:6 ; 19:15 ). They were the first to execute the sentence on the condemned (Deuteronomy 13:9 ; 17:7 ; 1 Kings 21:13 ; Matthew 27:1 ; Acts 7:57,58 ). False witnesses were liable to punishment (Deuteronomy 19:16-21 ). It was also an offence to refuse to bear witness (Leviticus 5:1 ).
