comment What is the significance of “east” in the Scriptures?
Also, the Cherubim are stationed east of Eden because Adam and Eve are exiled to the east (Gen. 3:24).

comment What is the significance of “east” in the Scriptures?
@Soldarnal, To add to your question: When Lot departs from Abraham he goes east (Gen. 13:11), the children of Abraham's concubines are sent east (25:6), Reuben, Gad and half of the tribe of Menashe choose to dwell outside and to the east of the land of Israel (Deut. 29:8).

comment Is “kill” a valid translation for Exodus 20:13 (Thou shalt not kill)?
@Flimzy, PETA has recently suggested that the 13th amendment of the US Constitution be applied to enslavement of animals in addition to humans. This reading of the constitution is absurd and sure to be laughed out of court. The verse is Exodus 21:13 is definitely addressing the killing human beings. Capital punishment and war plays a central role in many a Biblical narrative so it definitely doesn't include those either.

comment Which hermeneutical approaches support a literal interpretation of the Creation account?
@Smashery, I recommend editing your question as per JonEricson's suggestion. Also, the Biblical Hermeneutics chat room at chat.stackexchange.com is a good place to get advice on how to formulate your questions for this site and is also a good place for informal conversation about a topic you're interested in.
