Deuteronomy 25* Extent of punishment. (1-3) The ox that treadeth the corn. (4)Marriage of a brother's wife. (5-12) Of unjust weights. (13-16)War against Amalek. (17-19)1-3 Every punishment should be with solemnity, that those whosee it may be filled with dread, and be warned not to offend inlike manner. And though the criminals must be shamed as well asput to pain, for their warning and disgrace, yet care should betaken that they do not appear totally vile. Happy those who arechastened of the Lord to humble them, that they should not becondemned with the world to destruction. 4 This is a charge to husbandmen. It teaches us to make much ofthe animals that serve us. But we must learn, not only to bejust, but kind to all who are employed for the good of ourbetter part, our souls, #1Co 9:9|. 5-12 The custom here regulated seems to have been in the Jewishlaw in order to keep inheritances distinct; now it is unlawful. 13-16 Dishonest gain always brings a curse on men's property,families, and souls. Happy those who judge themselves, repent ofand forsake their sins, and put away evil things, that they maynot be condemned of the Lord. 17-19 Let every persecutor and injurer of God's people takewarning from the case of the Amalekites. The longer it is beforejudgement comes, the more dreadful will it be at last. Amalekmay remind us of the foes of our souls. May we be enabled toslay all our lusts, all the corruptions both within and without,all the powers of darkness and of the world, which oppose ourway to the blessed Saviour.
