What does the Torah mean when it writes "ve'Lo Sikchu Kofer le'Nefesh Rotze'ach?"


Rashi, Ramban, Rashbam, Targum Onkelos and Targum Yonasan: 'Do not accept ransom for the life of a Rotze'ach be'Meizid' - to enable him to avoid the death penalty by accepting money (or by giving him Malkos, allowing him to escape to the Ir Miklat or via any other punishment- Ramban). 1


See Rashbam.
