1 If there be a a between men, and they come unto b, that the judges may judge them; then they shall c the righteous, and condemn the wicked.
2 And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to be a, that the judge shall cause him to lie down, and to be beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certain b.
3 a stripes he may give him, and not exceed: lest, if he should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then thy brother should seem b unto thee.
4 ¶Thou shalt not a the ox when he treadeth out the b.
5 ¶If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the a of the dead shall not marry b unto a stranger: her c d shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an e brother unto her.
6 And it shall be, that the firstborn which she beareth shall succeed in the a of his brother which is dead, that his b be not c out of Israel.
7 And if the man like not to take his brother’s wife, then let his brother’s wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, My husband’s brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband’s brother.
8 Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him: and if he a, and say, I like not to take her;
9 Then shall his brother’s wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose his a from off his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto that man that will not build up his brother’s house.
10 And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe loosed.
11 ¶When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets:
12 Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.
13 ¶Thou shalt not have in thy bag a b, a great and a small.
14 Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small.
15 But thou shalt have a a and just weight, a perfect and just b shalt thou have: that thy days may be c in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
16 For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto the Lord thy God.
17 ¶Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt;
18 How he met thee by the way, and a the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God.
19 Therefore it shall be, when the Lord thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt a the remembrance of b from under heaven; thou shalt not forget it.
