Exodus 21:15 -- “And he who strikes his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.”

In his “Moreh Nebuchim”, Maimonides says: “He who strikes his father or his mother is put to death on account of his great audacity, and because he undermines the constitution of the family, which is the foundation of the state.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 41
