SPREAD THE DAMN WORD
THAT WAS COOL
My hands are too small to do this effectively.

You do realize all of this is from the Old Testament (i.e. the Hebrew Bible), right?
The Old Testament was originally considered as canonical as the Greek Myths - that is, both were incorrect interpretations of the true faith.
It only got boosted up in legitimacy because of the Puritans. Their influence is why we see a lot of radical Christians clinging onto this.
The Catholic Church itself has been moving away from strict reading of the Old Testament completely shunning the radical parts like the above. The positive bits of the Old Testament more or less just serves as a primer, a sort of historical perspective on what the earlier monotheists got right.
So yes, context does matter.
Also, I forgot to mention that the Old Testament was mostly written in or around the Bronze Age - one of the most brutal and destructive eras of mankind. Of course its going to be filled with murder, rape, and pillaging; reflecting the times in which it was written.
Ten commandments are also in the Old Testament. Tell me more about how you pick and choose what you want from your “great book”.

It is the start of the year 2000, and something is wrong.
Husbands and wives wake up next to each other, scared. They don’t know who the person in the bed with them is. Who is this person? Why are they in my house? Is this my house? Is this their house?
They go out to investigate. A five-year-old child uses a Windows 98 computer in the living room. The child turns around, and asks, “Is it time for me to go to school, mommy?”
The world is in panic. The President of the United States, who awoke in the Oval Office with no knowledge of being elected, calls for a large-scale investigation.
After weeks of asking adults and children alike what is going on, and looking at the various public records, they realize that the children are not confused at all. The adults can only remember what last happened in 1989. However, the children that can speak say that they were born anywhere from 1991 to 1996. Public officials can only draw one conclusion.
To every adult, the 1990s never happened. The children, however, cannot have come from nowhere.
It doesn’t take long after this conclusion for them to realize that only 90s kids remember the 90s.
