Deuteronomy 23

CHAPTER 23

Social Laws

[2shall not enter 1One with crushed testicles] (nor being cut off) into the assembly of the  lord. [3shall not enter 1One born of 2a harlot] into the assembly of the  lord unto the tenth generation. [4shall not 5enter 1The Ammonite 2and 3Moabite] into the assembly of the  lord; even unto the tenth generation he shall not enter into the assembly of the  lord, even unto into the eon, for reason [2not 3meeting with 1of their] you with bread loaves and water in the way, of your going forth from Egypt; and that they hired against you Balaam son of Beor from out of Mesopotamia to curse you. And [3did not 4want 1the  lord 2your God] to listen to Balaam; and [3converted 1the  lord 2your God] the curses into a blessing, for [3loved 4you 1\Eit the 2your God]. You shall not address peaceable to them, nor be advantageous to them all your days into the eon. You shall not abhor an Edomite, for [2your brother 1he is]. You shall not abhor an Egyptian, for [2a sojourner 1you were] in his land. [3sons 1If 2they shall bear] to themselves [2generation 1in the third], they shall enter into the assembly of the  lord. And if you should go forth to camp against your enemies, then you shall guard from every evil thing. 10 If there might be among you a man who is not clean because of his flow by night, then he shall go forth outside the camp, and he shall not enter into the camp. 11 And it will be towards evening he shall bathe his body in water; and at the going down of the sun, he shall enter into the camp. 12 And a place will be for you outside the camp, and you shall go forth there outside, 13 and a trowel will be upon your belt, and it will be whenever you should sit separately outside, that you shall dig with it, and bringing it you shall cover your indecency by it. 14 For the  lord your God walks about in your camp to rescue you, and to deliver up your enemy before your face; and [2shall be 1your camp] holy, and there shall not be seen among you [2of indecency 1a thing], that he shall turn away from you. 15 You shall not deliver up a servant to his master, who was added to you by his master; 16 [2with 3you 1he shall dwell], among you, in every place of which ever it should please him. You shall not afflict him. 17 There shall not be a harlot from the daughters of Israel, and there shall not be one whoring from the sons of Israel. 18 You shall not bring the hire of a harlot, nor the price of a dog, into the house of the  lord your God for any vow. For [4an abomination 5to the  lord 6your God 3are 1even 2both]. 19 You shall not lend to your brother with interest of silver, and interest of foods, and interest of any thing of which ever you should lend. 20 To the alien you may lend with interest, but to your brother you shall not lend with interest; that [3should bless 4you 1the  lord 2your God] in all your works upon the land into which you enter there to inherit it. 21 And if you shall vow a vow to the  lord your God, you shall not pass time to give it; for requiring, [3shall require it 1the  lord 2your God] from you; and it will be [2to 3you 1sin]. 22 But if you should not want to make a vow, it is not a sin to you. 23 The things going forth through your lips you shall guard, and you shall do in which manner you made a vow to the  lord your God in the matter of a gift which [2spoke 1your mouth]. 24 And if you enter into the vineyard of your neighbor, you may eat [2grape 1as much 4your soul 3as to fill up], [3into 1but 4a container 2you shall not put them]. 25 And if you should enter into the harvest field of your neighbor, then you may collect together [2in 3your hands 1corn]; but the sickle in no way shall be put upon the harvest of your neighbor.
