1 »When there is a dispute between men and they go to court, and the judges decide their case. They justify the righteous and condemn the wicked.
2 »If the wicked man deserves to be beaten, the judge will then make him lie down and be beaten in his presence. The number of lashes is according to his guilt.
3 »He must not beat him more than forty lashes. If he beats more than that your brother will be degraded in your eyes.
4 »Do not muzzle the bull while he is threshing.
5 »When brothers live together and one of them dies without a son the wife of the deceased shall not marry outside the family to a strange man. Her husband's brother shall marry her and perform the duty of a husband's brother to her.
6 »The firstborn son she bears will assume the name of the dead brother. That way his name will not be blotted out from Israel.
7 »If the man does not desire to take his brother's wife, his brother's wife shall go up to the gate to the elders and say: My husband's brother refuses to establish a name for his brother in Israel. He is not willing to perform the duty of a husband's brother to me.
8 »The elders of his city must summon him and speak to him. If he persists and says: I do not desire to take her,
9 his brother's wife shall must to him in the sight of the elders. She will pull his sandal off his foot and spit in his face. Then she will declare: It is done to the man who does not build up his brother's house.
10 »His name in Israel will be: The house of him whose sandal is removed.
11 »If two brothers struggle together and the wife of one approaches to help her husband against the other man, and puts out her hand and seizes his genitals,
12 you must cut off her hand. Do not show pity.
13 »Do not have differing weights, a large and a small, in your bag.
14 »Do not have in your house differing measures, a large and a small.
15 »You must have a full and just weight. You should have a full and just measure, that your days may be prolonged in the land Jehovah your God gives you.
16 »Everyone who does these things, everyone who acts unjustly is an abomination to Jehovah your God.
17 »Remember what Amalek did to you along the way when you came out from Egypt.
18 »He met you along the way and attacked among you all the stragglers at your rear when you were faint and weary. He did not respect God.
19 »When Jehovah your God has given you rest from all your surrounding enemies, in the land Jehovah your God gives you as an inheritance to possess. You will blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven. Do not forget.
