Harming the Harmless

"He who harms the harmless Or hurts the innocent, Ten times shall he fall--
Into torment or infirmity, Injury or disease or madness, Persecution or fearful accusation, Loss of family, loss of fortune.
Fire from heaven shall strike his house And when his body has been struck down, He shall rise in hell."
--The Buddha
From The Dhammapada - The Syaings of the Buddha (pp. 57) by Thomas Byrom.

The harmless or innocent refers to all living beings, humans or animals.
