Expiation of a Crime1 “If a slain person is found lying in the open country in the land which the Lord your God gives you to ▼
▼ Lit possess itpossess, and it is not known who has struck him, 2 then your elders and your judges shall go out and measure the distance to the cities which are around the slain one. 3 “It shall be that the city which is nearest to the slain man, that is, the elders of that city, shall take a heifer of the herd, which has not been worked and which has not pulled in a yoke; 4 and the elders of that city shall bring the heifer down to a valley with running water, which has not been plowed or sown, and shall break the heifer’s neck there in the valley. 5 “Then b the priests, the sons of Levi, shall come near, for the Lord your God has chosen them to serve Him and to bless in the name of the Lord; and every dispute and every ▼
▼ Lit strokeassault ▼
▼ Lit shall be according to their mouthshall be settled by them. 6 “All the elders of that city ▼
▼ Lit who arewhich is nearest to the slain man shall f wash their hands over the heifer whose neck was broken in the valley; 7 and they shall answer and say, ‘Our hands did not shed this blood, nor did our eyes see it. 8 ‘ ▼
▼ Lit Cover over, atone forForgive Your people Israel whom You have redeemed, O Lord, and do not place the guilt of h innocent blood in the midst of Your people Israel.’ And the bloodguiltiness shall be ▼
▼ Lit covered over, atoned forforgiven them. 9 j “So you shall remove the guilt of innocent blood from your midst, when you do what is right in the eyes of the Lord.
Domestic Relations10 “When you go out to battle against your enemies, and k the Lord your God delivers them into your hands and you take them away captive, 11 and see among the captives a beautiful woman, and have a desire for her and would take her as a wife for yourself, 12 then you shall bring her home to your house, and she shall l shave her head and ▼
▼ Lit dotrim her nails. 13 “She shall also ▼
▼ Lit remove from herremove the clothes of her captivity and shall remain in your house, and o mourn her father and mother a full month; and after that you may go in to her and be her husband and she shall be your wife. 14 “It shall be, if you are not pleased with her, then you shall let her go ▼
▼ Lit according to her soulwherever she wishes; but you shall certainly not sell her for money, you shall not ▼
▼ Or enslavemistreat her, because you have r humbled her. 15 “If a man has two wives, the one loved and s the other ▼ unloved, and both the loved and the ▼ unloved have borne him sons, if the firstborn son belongs to the ▼ unloved, 16 then it shall be in the day he ▼
▼ Lit makes to inheritwills what he has to his sons, he cannot make the son of the loved the firstborn before the son of the ▼ unloved, who is the firstborn. 17 “But he shall acknowledge the firstborn, the son of the ▼ unloved, by giving him a double portion of all that ▼
▼ Lit is found with himhe has, for he is the aa beginning of his strength; ab to him belongs the right of the firstborn. 18 “If any man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will ac not obey his father or his mother, and when they chastise him, he will not even listen to them, 19 then his father and mother shall seize him, and bring him out to the elders of his city ▼
▼ Lit and to the gate of his placeat the gateway of his hometown. 20 “They shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey us, he is a glutton and a drunkard.’ 21 ae “Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death; so af you shall remove the evil from your midst, and ag all Israel will hear of it and fear. 22 “If a man has committed a sin ah worthy of death and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, 23 ai his corpse shall not hang all night on the tree, but you shall surely bury him on the same day (for aj he who is hanged is ▼
▼ Lit the curse of Godaccursed of God), so that you al do not defile your land which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance.
