1 When a man hath taken a a, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some b in her: then let him write her a bill of c, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.
2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife.
3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;
4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not a the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
5 ¶When a man hath taken a new a, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall b his wife which he hath taken.
6 ¶No man shall take the a or the upper millstone to pledge: for b a man’s life to pledge.
7 ¶If a man be found a any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh b of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you.
8 ¶Take heed in the plague of a, that thou observe diligently, and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall b you: as I commanded them, so ye shall observe to do.
9 Remember what the Lord thy God did unto Miriam by the way, after that ye were come forth out of Egypt.
10 ¶When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go into his house to fetch his pledge.
11 Thou shalt stand a, and the man to whom thou dost lend shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee.
12 And if the man be poor, thou shalt not a:
13 In any case thou shalt deliver him the a again when the sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his own b, and bless thee: and it shall be righteousness unto thee before the Lord thy God.
14 ¶Thou shalt not a an hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that are in thy land within thy b:
15 a thou shalt give him his b, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest he c against thee unto the Lord, and it be sin unto thee.
16 The a shall not be put to b for the children, neither shall the c be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his d e.
17 ¶Thou shalt not a the b of the stranger, nor of the fatherless; nor take a widow’s raiment to pledge:
18 But thou shalt remember that thou wast a a in Egypt, and the Lord thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command thee to do this thing.
19 ¶When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the a: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.
20 When thou beatest thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.
21 When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.
22 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt: therefore I command thee to do this thing.
