Administration of Justice1 a “You shall not sacrifice to the Lord your God an ox or a sheep which has a blemish or any ▼
▼ Lit evil thingdefect, for that is a detestable thing to the Lord your God. 2 c “If there is found in your midst, in any of your ▼
▼ Lit gatestowns, which the Lord your God is giving you, a man or a woman who does what is evil in the sight of the Lord your God, by transgressing His covenant, 3 and has gone and e served other gods and worshiped them, f or the sun or the moon or any of the heavenly host g which I have not commanded, 4 and if it is told you and you have heard of it, then you shall inquire thoroughly. Behold, if it is true and the thing certain that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, 5 then you shall bring out that man or that woman who has done this evil deed to your gates, that is, the man or the woman, and h you shall stone them to ▼
▼ Lit death with stonesdeath. 6 j “On the ▼ evidence of two witnesses or three witnesses, he who is to die shall be put to death; he shall not be put to death on the ▼ evidence of one witness. 7 m “The hand of the witnesses shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people. n So you shall purge the evil from your midst. 8 o “If any case is too difficult for you to decide, between ▼
▼ Lit blood to bloodone kind of homicide or another, between ▼
▼ Lit judgment to judgmentone kind of lawsuit or another, and between ▼
▼ Lit stroke to strokeone kind of assault or another, being cases of dispute in your ▼
▼ Lit gatescourts, then you shall arise and go up to t the place which the Lord your God chooses. 9 “So you shall come to u the Levitical priest or the judge who is in office in those days, and you shall inquire of them and they will declare to you the verdict in the case. 10 “You shall do according to the ▼ terms of the verdict which they declare to you from that place which the Lord chooses; and you shall be careful to observe according to all that they teach you. 11 w “According to the ▼ terms of the law which they teach you, and according to the verdict which they tell you, you shall do; you shall not turn aside from the word which they declare to you, to the right or the left. 12 “The man who acts y presumptuously by not listening to the priest who stands there to serve the Lord your God, nor to the judge, that man shall die; thus you shall purge the evil from Israel. 13 “Then all the people will hear and be afraid, and will not act z presumptuously again. 14 “When you enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, and you aa possess it and live in it, and you say, ‘ ab I will set a king over me like all the nations who are around me,’ 15 you shall surely set a king over you whom the Lord your God chooses, one ac from among your ▼
▼ Lit brother(s)countrymen you shall set as king over yourselves; you may not put a foreigner over yourselves who is not your ▼
▼ Lit brother(s)countryman. 16 af “Moreover, he shall not multiply horses for himself, nor shall he ag cause the people to return to Egypt to multiply horses, since ah the Lord has said to you, ‘You shall never again return that way.’ 17 ai “He shall not multiply wives for himself, ▼
▼ Lit noror else his heart will turn away; nor shall he greatly increase silver and gold for himself. 18 “Now it shall come about when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself a copy of this law on a scroll ▼
▼ Lit from before, al in the presence of the Levitical priests. 19 “It shall be with him and he shall read it am all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, ▼
▼ Lit to keep to do themby carefully observing all the words of this law and these statutes, 20 that his heart may not be lifted up above his ▼
▼ Lit brotherscountrymen ap and that he may not turn aside from the commandment, to the right or the left, so that he and his sons may continue long in his kingdom in the midst of Israel.
