Deuteronomy 22:25 — Deuteronomy 23:14

25 But if the man finds the engaged girl in the field, and the man overpowers her and lies with her, only the man who was lying with her shall die.

26 But to the girl you shall not do anything; there is no sin worthy of death with the girl; for as it is when a man rises up against his neighbor and slays him, so is this matter.

27 For he found her in the field; the engaged girl cried out and there was no one to save her.

28 If a man finds a girl who is a virgin and is not engaged, and seizes her and lies with her, and they are found;

29 The man who was lying with her shall give fifty shekels of silver to the girl’s father. And she shall be his wife, because he humbled her; he may not send her away all his days.

30 A man shall not take his father’s wife, so that he does not uncover the skirt of his father’s garment.

CHAPTER 23

1 He who has been wounded in the testicles or has the male organ cut off shall not enter the congregation of Jehovah.

2 An illegitimate child shall not enter the congregation of Jehovah; even to the tenth generation, no descendant of his shall enter the congregation of Jehovah.

3 An Ammonite or a Moabite shall not enter the congregation of Jehovah; even to the tenth generation, no descendant of theirs shall enter the congregation of Jehovah forever;

4 Because they did not come to meet you with bread and water in the way when you were coming out of Egypt, and because they hired Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor of Mesopotamia against you, to curse you.

5 But Jehovah your God would not listen to Balaam, and Jehovah your God turned the curse into a blessing for you, for Jehovah your God loved you.

6 You shall not seek peace with them nor prosperity with them all your days forever.

7 You shall not abhor an Edomite, for he is your brother. You shall not abhor an Egyptian, for you were a sojourner in his land.

8 The children of the third generation who have been begotten of them may enter the congregation of Jehovah.

9 When you as a camp go forth against your enemies, you shall keep yourself from every evil thing.

10 If there is among you a man who becomes unclean because of an accident in the night, he shall go outside the camp; he shall not enter into the midst of the camp.

11 But when evening approaches, he shall bathe in water; and when the sun goes down, he shall enter into the midst of the camp.

12 And you shall have an assigned place outside the camp, and there you shall go out;

13 And you shall have a spade among your tools, and when you relieve yourself outside the camp, you shall dig with it and turn to cover your excrement.

14 For Jehovah your God walks in the midst of your camp to rescue you and deliver up your enemies before you; therefore your camp shall be holy, and He must not see any indecent thing among you, lest He turn back from going after you.
