Deuteronomy 21:10 Deuteronomy22:4

10 When you go out to fight against your enemies and Jehovah your God delivers them into your hands and you take them captive,

11 And you see a beautiful woman among the captives and desire her and would take her to yourself as a wife;

12 You shall bring her within your house, and she shall shave her head, trim her nails,

13 And take her clothes of captivity away from her. And she shall dwell in your house and mourn her father and mother for a full month. And afterward you shall go in unto her and be her husband, and she shall be a wife to you.

14 And if after a time you do not delight in her, you shall let her go wherever she wishes. But you must not sell her for money; you shall not deal with her as a slave, because you have humbled her.

15 If a man has two wives, one beloved and the other despised, and both the beloved and the despised have borne him sons; and if the firstborn son is of the despised woman;

16 Then in the day when he gives what he has to his sons as his inheritance, he may not make the son of the beloved woman the firstborn instead of the son of the despised one, who is the firstborn.

17 But he shall acknowledge the firstborn, the son of the despised woman, giving him a double portion of all that he has, for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his.

18 If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son, one who does not listen to the voice of his father nor to the voice of his mother; and though they chastise him, he does not listen to them;

19 Then his father and mother shall seize him and bring him forth to the elders of his city and to the gate of his place.

20 And they shall say to the elders of his city, This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious; he does not listen to our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.

21 Then all the men of his city shall stone him with stones so that he dies. Thus you shall utterly remove the evil from your midst, and all Israel will hear and will fear.

22 And if in a man there is a sin, a cause worthy of death, and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree;

23 His corpse shall not remain overnight on the tree, but you must bury him on that day. For he who is hanged is accursed of God, and you shall not defile your land, which Jehovah your God gives you as an inheritance.


1 You shall not see your brother’s ox or his sheep straying and neglect them; you must return them to your brother.

2 And if your brother is not nearby you, or if you do not know who he is, you shall bring it to your house. And it shall be with you until your brother demands it; then you shall return it to him.

3 And thus shall you do with his donkey; and thus shall you do with his clothing; and thus shall you do with any of your brother’s lost things, which he has lost and you have found. You may not neglect them.

4 You shall not see your brother’s donkey or his ox fallen by the way and neglect them; you must lift them up with him.
