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 ).
