What the Bible says about Suicide

It's better to kill yourself (or have someone assist your suicide) than to be killed by a woman.

And a certain woman cast a piece of a millstone upon Abimelech's head, and all to brake his skull. Then he called hastily unto the young man his armourbearer, and said unto him, Draw thy sword, and slay me, that men say not of me, A women slew him. And his young man thrust him through, and he died. -- Judges 9:52-53

Suicide is a noble thing if it results in the death of your enemies (including civilians).

And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left. And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life. -- Judges 16:29-30

Suicide must be a good thing since Jesus did it.

Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. -- John 10:17-18

At the end of the world many will try to commit suicide to escape God's torments, but God won't let them.

And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. -- Revelation 9:6
