Deu 21:11 And see among the captives a beautiful woman, and have a desire unto her, that you
would have her to your wife;
Deu 21:12 Then you shall bring her home to your house; and she shall shave * her head, and
pare * her nails;
Deu 21:13 And she shall put * the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in your
house, and bewail * her father and her mother a full month: and after that you shall go in
unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be your wife.

but you shall not sell her at all for money, you shall not make merchandise of her, because
you have humbled her.

make * the son of the beloved firstborn before the son of the hated, which is indeed the

firstborn is his.

elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;
Deu 21:20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious,
he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.
Deu 21:21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shall you put
evil away from among you; and all Yisra’el shall hear, and fear.

Deu 21:22 And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death, and
you hang him on a tree:
Deu 21:23 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but you shall in any wise bury him
that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of Elohim;) that * your land be not defiled, which
YHWH your Elohim gives you for an inheritance.

it unto your own house, and it shall be with you until your brother seek after it, and you shall
restore it to him again.

likewise: you may not hide yourself.

yourself from them: you shall surely help him to lift them up again.

ones, or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, you shall not take the

Deu 22:15 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:
Deu 22:16 And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave * my daughter unto this man
to wife, and he hates her;
Deu 22:17 And, lo, he has given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not your
daughter a virgin; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall
spread the cloth before the elders of the city.
Deu 22:18 And the elders of that city shall take * that man and chastise him;
Deu 22:19 And they shall fine him in a hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father
of the damsel, because he has brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Yisra’el: and she
shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.

Deu 22:21 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 has wrought folly in Yisra’el,
to play the whore in her father’s house: so shall you put evil away from among you.

with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die:
Deu 22:26 But unto the damsel you shall do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of
death: for as when a man rises against his neighbor, and slays him, even so is this matter:
Deu 22:27 For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to
save her.
Deu 22:28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her,

forth out of Mitzrayim; and because they hired against you Bilam the son of Be’or of Petor of
Mesopotamia, to curse you.
