It is an interesting question for servicemen and servicewomen. Our chaplain
at RMA Sandhurst answered an officer cadet's question with reference to
He [Jesus] saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, ...
This allows sufficient interpretation to allow a sailor, soldier or airman

29: And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O
Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
30: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all
thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the
31: And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as
thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
