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.

What are some good Bible verses to convince a friend out of suicide?

OpinionThere is no Bible verse that can make a difference to someone considering suicide. Too many Christians, including quite pious Christians, have committed suicide for the Bible to be a source of help. What your friend needs is understanding and support, evidence that there are those around who would miss him or her, and a reminder that life is worth living. In some cases, it is important to seek help from a health professional.
