Thou shalt not see thy brother’s ox or his sheep go astray, and hide thyself
from them: thou shalt in any case bring them again unto thy brother.
And if thy brother be not nigh unto thee, or if thou know him not, then thou shalt
bring it unto thine own house, and it shall be with thee until thy brother seek after
it, and thou shalt restore it to him again.
In like manner shalt thou do with his ass; and so shalt thou do with his raiment;
and with all lost thing of thy brother’s, which he hath lost, and thou hast
found, shalt thou do likewise: thou mayest not hide thyself.
Thou shalt not see thy brother’s ass or his ox fall down by the way, and hide
thyself from them: thou shalt surely help him to lift them up again.
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put
on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy
If a bird’s nest chance to be before thee in the way in any tree, or on the
ground, whether they be young ones, or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or
upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam with the young:
But thou shalt in any wise let the dam go, and take the young to thee; that it may
be well with thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days.
When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a battlement for thy roof,
that thou bring not blood upon thine house, if any man fall from thence.
Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which
thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled.
Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.
Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen
Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou
If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,
And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and
say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:
Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the
tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate:
And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto
this man to wife, and he hateth her;
And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy
daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And
they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.
And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him;
And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the
father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel:
and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.
But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the
Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and
the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought
folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil
away from among you.
If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of
them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away
evil from Israel.
If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in
the city, and lie with her;
Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone
them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city;
and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife: so thou shalt put away
evil from among you.
But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her, and lie
with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die.
But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of
death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this
For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none
to save her.
If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on
her, and lie with her, and they be found;
Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty
shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not
put her away all his days.
A man shall not take his father’s wife, nor discover his father’s
