Followup to Bible Kill Count

As requested on the Bible Kill Count Motivational page, here is a list of kills by god as found in the Bible. I've highlighted a few of my favorite stories to illustrate the immorality of god and his "mob boss" mentality. Some death counts are missing due to the fact that the kill value is missing and it's difficult to guess. This includes the number of those killed in Noah's flood, all of those that were burned to death in Sodom and Gomorrah.

There are 10 kills attributed to the Devil. This is from the story of Job and and his family. I will however point out that the Devil had to first get permission from god before he could kill. So some might credit those 10 kills to god. If you know of any missing kills then post a comment.
