Chapter 24

1

When a man hath taken4 a wife, and married1 her, and it come to pass that she find4 no favour in his eyes, because he hath found1 some uncleanness in her: then let him write1 her a bill of divorcement, and give1 [it] in her hand, and send14 her out of his house.

2

And when she is departed1 out of his house, she may go1 and be another man's [wife].

3

And [if] the latter husband hate1 her, and write1 her a bill of divorcement, and giveth1 [it] in her hand, and sendeth14 her out of his house; or if the latter husband die,4 which took1 her [to be] his wife;

4

Her former husband, which sent her away,14 may4 not take2 her again2 to be his wife, after that she is defiled;120 for that [is] abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin,55 which the LORD thy God giveth6 thee [for] an inheritance.

5

When a man hath taken4 a new wife, he shall not go out4 to war, neither shall he be charged4 with any business: [but] he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up14 his wife which he hath taken.1

6

No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge:4 for he taketh [a man's] life to pledge.6

7

If a man be found11 stealing6 any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise98 of him, or selleth1 him; then that thief shall die;1 and thou shalt put evil away14 from among you.

8

Take heed10 in the plague of leprosy, that thou observe2 diligently, and do2 according to all that the priests the Levites shall teach55 you: as I commanded14 them, [so] ye shall observe4 to do.2

9

Remember2 what the LORD thy God did1 unto Miriam by the way, after that ye were come forth2 out of Egypt.

10

When thou dost lend55 thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go4 into his house to fetch2 his pledge.

11

Thou shalt stand4 abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend6 shall bring out55 the pledge abroad unto thee.

12

And if the man [be] poor, thou shalt not sleep4 with his pledge:

13

In any case53 thou shalt deliver him the pledge again55 when the sun goeth down,2 that he may sleep1 in his own raiment, and bless14 thee: and it shall be righteousness unto thee before the LORD thy God.

14

Thou shalt not oppress4 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 gates:

15

At his day thou shalt give4 [him] his hire, neither shall the sun go down4 upon it; for he [is] poor, and setteth6 his heart upon it: lest he cry4 against thee unto the LORD, and it be sin unto thee.

16

The fathers shall not be put to death93 for the children, neither shall the children be put to death93 for the fathers: every man shall be put to death93 for his own sin.

17

Thou shalt not pervert55 the judgment of the stranger, [nor] of the fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge:4

18

But thou shalt remember1 that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed4 thee thence: therefore I command18 thee to do2 this thing.

19

When thou cuttest down4 thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot1 a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again4 to fetch2 it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless17 thee in all the work of thine hands.

20

When thou beatest4 thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over the boughs17 again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.

21

When thou gatherest4 the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean25 [it] afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.

22

And thou shalt remember1 that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt: therefore I command18 thee to do2 this thing.
