Regarding image/character/picture: The more recent Norwegian translations use "avgudsbilde", which explicity means "an image of a false god", rather than the more general "bilde" which has no religious conntations by itself. So, if the word you translate to 'image' does not imply an image of a false god, then the translators have added something not in the original text. (Which is understandable - preaching a second commandment that makes any camera, any naturalistic painting, any TV set, into a grave sin, is not politicall correct nowadays...)

Then: kill. You may be killed by accident, is that covered by the word for 'kill'? What about killing to the honor of God, often called 'herem' in the Judeo-Chistian tradion, 'jihad' in the Moslem tradition? Does it cover killing other creatures, like slaughtering animals for food - or maybe hunting just for fun to bring home trophies? Does the commandment order us to become vegetarians? Is a death sentence as a punishment for other crimes against this commandment?

And so on. Different cultures have different interpretations of "kill". What was the meaning when this commandment was established - was it "Do not murder" more than "Become a vegetarian"? If I could obtain a list of all verses (in Norwegian) where this "kill" verb is used in the Hebrew version, I might come a little closer to understand what kind of killing is acceptable and which is not. (According to the Bible, of course - my personal opinion might differ.)
