Best Answer

The Old and New Testaments each have stories relating to people's suicide, and in no case is it unambiguously prohibited in either one. Interpretations related to "shalt not kill" and "desecrating God's temple" are more recently often interpreted to be prohibitions on suicide, but that's inconsistent with the many times it's mentioned in both works with a morally neutral tone.

The two links below show collected Old Testament and New Testament quotations on suicide and a short discussion on how and why the prohibition of suicide is drawn from them by some.
