A girl accused of witchcraft's cage is being moved by Behman along with some warriors to an abbey to stop the plague in their town. On the way, she kills few warriors so Debelzaq tries to prevent Behmen who wants to kill her.

Debelzaq: There may be no room in your heart for God, Behmen. But in my heart, I know He would not abandon us. In God's name...
Behmen: No man has spilled more blood in God's NAME, than I. A benevolent God would not ASK such things of men!

What is the meaning of "such things of men"?

A benevolent god wouldn't ask men (people) to do such things.
