Deuteronomy 25

Stripes must not exceed forty.

Deuteronomy 25:1 If there be a controversy between men, and they call upon the judges: they shall give the prize of justice to him whom they perceive to be just: and him whom they find to be wicked, they shall condemn of wickedness. Deuteronomy 25:2 And if they see that the offender be worthy of stripes: they shall lay him down, and shall cause him to be beaten before them. According to the measure of the sin shall the measure also of the stripes be: Deuteronomy 25:3 Yet so, that they exceed not the number of forty: lest thy brother depart shamefully torn before thy eyes.

The ox is not to be muzzled.

Deuteronomy 25:4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out thy corn on the floor.

Of raising seed unto a brother.

Deuteronomy 25:5 When brethren dwell together, and one of them dieth without children, the wife of the deceased shall not marry to another: but his brother shall take her, and raise up seed for his brother: Deuteronomy 25:6 And the first son he shall have of her he shall call by his name, that his name be not abolished out of Israel. Deuteronomy 25:7 But if he will not take his brother's wife, who by law belongeth to him, the woman shall go to the gate of the city, and call upon the ancients, and say: My husband's brother refuseth to raise up his brother's name in Israel: and will not take me to wife. Deuteronomy 25:8 And they shall cause him to be sent for forthwith, and shall ask him. If he answer: I will not take her to wife: Deuteronomy 25:9 The woman shall come to him before the ancients, and shall take off his shoe from his foot, and spit in his face, and say: So shall it be done to the man that will not build up his brother's house: Deuteronomy 25:10 And his name shall be called in Israel, the house of the unshod.

Of the immodest woman.

Deuteronomy 25:11 If two men have words together, and one begin to fight against the other, and the other's wife willing to deliver her husband out of the hand of the stronger, shall put forth her hand, and take him by the secrets, Deuteronomy 25:12 Thou shalt cut off her hand, neither shalt thou be moved with any pity in her regard.

Of unjust weights.

Deuteronomy 25:13 Thou shalt not have divers weights in thy bag, a greater and a less: Deuteronomy 25:14 Neither shall there be in thy house a greater bushel and a less. Deuteronomy 25:15 Thou shalt have a just and a true weight, and thy bushel shall be equal and true: that thou mayest live a long time upon the land which the Lord thy God shall give thee. Deuteronomy 25:16 For the Lord thy God abhorreth him that doth these things, and he hateth all injustice.

The memory of Amalek is to be blotted out.

Deuteronomy 25:17 Remember what Amalec did to thee in the way when thou camest out of Egypt: Deuteronomy 25:18 How he met thee: and slew the hindmost of the army, who sat down, being weary, when thou wast spent with hunger and labour, and he feared not God. Deuteronomy 25:19 Therefore when the Lord thy God shall give thee rest, and shall have subdued all the nations round about in the land which he hath promised thee: thou shalt blot out his name from under heaven. See thou forget it not.
