* DeathByGluttony: In Numbers chapter 11, the people of Israel were craving for meat because all they had to eat was just manna. God decides to fulfill their desire by giving them so much meat for a month that it would come out of their nostrils and they would get sick of it. However, the death part comes when the Israelites are in the process of gorging themselves on the meat via God striking them dead with a sickness.

[[note]] [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Almost certainly some kind of food poisoning]], which would have happened ''very'' easily in a campsite full of displaced people, with no refrigeration, very limited alternative means of food preservation (none of which would be easy to pull off in these circumstances), no modern cooking practices, or modern sanitation practices, no antibiotics, and no germ theory.

* InvisibleToNormals: The Angel of the Lord that appeared in the road three times to stop Balaam. Only his donkey was able to see the Angel with His sword drawn and reacts in a way that makes Balaam think he has a StubbornMule. It's only after the third time when God causes the donkey to speak that "Balaam's eyes were opened" and he saw the Angel standing in the road.


Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfThree:
** In Numbers, the Angel of the Lord stands in the way of Balaam and his donkey three times to get him to stop.
** Shortly after, Balaam tries to curse Israel three times, but instead blesses them three times.

* DeathBySex: Probably the best known example of this was in Numbers chapter 25, as Zimri son of Salu brought a Midianite woman into the Israelite camp while God's people were joined with the Midianites at Baal-Peor. Phinehas son of Eleazar took the matter upon himself to stop the plague God sent upon His people by stabbing the couple when they were alone with each other in Zimri's tent.

* RiversOfBlood: The first plague upon the Egyptians was to turn the waters of the Nile into blood. This failed to impress the Pharaoh, as even his magicians could perform the same plague with their secret arts.

* BrownNote: The voice of God, according to the Israelites that heard Him speak from the mountain, as recorded in Exodus and Deuteronomy. After hearing Him the first time, they tell Moses to have God speak to him and then him speak to the Israelites because if they heard the voice of God speak any more, they would die. Whether the voice of God can actually kill or just that the voice is so terrifying that it can cause heart attacks is unknown.

* GoodIsNotNice: God didn't have any qualms in killing Egypt's firstborn in order for Pharaoh to free the Israelites from slavery, and he doesn't have any compunctions in being heavy with His ''[[DisproportionateRetribution severe]]'' punishments on the Israelites if they sinned against Him. However, the Plague of Death of the Firstborn happened after Pharaoh [[IgnoredEpiphany disregarded the previous Plagues]].
** Your Mileage May Vary on this, but since [[HumansAreBastards all humans are sinners]] it could rather be said of God that GoodIsNotSoft.

* WordsCanBreakMyBones: Implied in Exodus and Deuteronomy, as they record the people of Israel saying, after hearing the voice of God speaking to them, that they would rather have Moses hear from God and then have him speak to them, because if they hear any more words directly from God, they would die. Alternately, this could be that the voice of God is so terrifying to listen to, that people would get heart attacks just from having to hear it.
