Deuteronomy 22
New Living Translation
22"If you see your neighbor's ox or sheep or goat wandering away, don't ignore your responsibility. Take it back to its owner.H7200H251H7794H7716H5080H5956H7725H7725H251 2If its owner does not live nearby or you don't know who the owner is, take it to your place and keep it until the owner comes looking for it. Then you must return it.H251H7138H3045H622H8432H1004H251H1875H7725 3Do the same if you find your neighbor's donkey, clothing, or anything else your neighbor loses. Don't ignore your responsibility.H3651H6213H2543H6213H8071H9H251H6H4672H6213H3201H5956 4"If you see that your neighbor's donkey or ox has collapsed on the road, do not look the other way. Go and help your neighbor get it back on its feet!H7200H251H2543H7794H5307H1870H5956H6965H6965 5"A woman must not put on men's clothing, and a man must not wear women's clothing. Anyone who does this is detestable in the sight of the LORD your God.H802H3627H1397H1397H3847H802H8071H6213H428H8441H3068H430 6"If you happen to find a bird's nest in a tree or on the ground, and there are young ones or eggs in it with the mother sitting in the nest, do not take the mother with the young.H6833H7064H7122H6440H1870H6086H776H667H1000H517H7257H667H1000H3947H517H1121 7You may take the young, but let the mother go, so that you may prosper and enjoy a long life.H7971H517H7971H3947H1121H3190H748H3117 8"When you build a new house, you must build a railing around the edge of its flat roof.

Regulations for Sexual Purity

13"Suppose a man marries a woman, but after sleeping with her, he turns against herH376H3947H802H935H8130 14and publicly accuses her of shameful conduct, saying, 'When I married this woman, I discovered she was not a virgin.'H7760H5949H1697H3318H7451H8034H559H3947H802H7126H4672H1331 15Then the woman's father and mother must bring the proof of her virginity to the elders as they hold court at the town gate.H1H5291H517H3947H3318H5291H1331H2205H5892H8179 16Her father must say to them, 'I gave my daughter to this man to be his wife, and now he has turned against her.H5291H1H559H2205H5414H1323H376H802H8130 17He has accused her of shameful conduct, saying, "I discovered that your daughter was not a virgin." But here is the proof of my daughter's virginity.' Then they must spread her bed sheet before the elders.H7760H5949H1697H559H4672H1323H1331H1323H1331H6566H8071H6440H2205H5892 18The elders must then take the man and punish him.H2205H5892H3947H376H3256 19They must also fine him 100 pieces of silver, which he must pay to the woman's father because he publicly accused a virgin of Israel of shameful conduct. The woman will then remain the man's wife, and he may never divorce her.H6064H3967H3701H5414H1H5291H3318H7451H8034H1330H3478H802H3201H7971H3117 20"But suppose the man's accusations are true, and he can show that she was not a virgin.H1697H571H1331H4672H5291 21The woman must be taken to the door of her father's home, and there the men of the town must stone her to death, for she has committed a disgraceful crime in Israel by being promiscuous while living in her parents' home. In this way, you will purge this evil from among you.H3318H5291H6607H1H1004H582H5892H5619H68H4191H6213H5039H3478H2181H1H1004H1197H7451H1197H7130 22"If a man is discovered committing adultery, both he and the woman must die. In this way, you will purge Israel of such evil.H376H4672H7901H802H1166H1167H8147H4191H376H7901H802H802H1197H7451H3478 23"Suppose a man meets a young woman, a virgin who is engaged to be married, and he has sexual intercourse with her. If this happens within a town,H5291H1330H781H376H376H4672H5892H7901 24you must take both of them to the gates of that town and stone them to death. The woman is guilty because she did not scream for help. The man must die because he violated another man's wife. In this way, you will purge this evil from among you.H3318H8147H8179H5892H5619H68H4191H5291H834H1697H6817H5892H376H834H1697H6031H7453H802H1197H7451H7130 25"But if the man meets the engaged woman out in the country, and he rapes her, then only the man must die.H376H4672H781H5291H7704H376H2388H7901H376H7901H4191 26Do nothing to the young woman; she has committed no crime worthy of death. She is as innocent as a murder victim.H5291H6213H1697H5291H2399H4194H376H6965H7453H7523H5315H1697 27Since the man raped her out in the country, it must be assumed that she screamed, but there was no one to rescue her.H4672H7704H781H5291H6817H3467 28"Suppose a man has intercourse with a young woman who is a virgin but is not engaged to be married. If they are discovered,H376H4672H5291H1330H781H8610H7901H4672 29he must pay her father fifty pieces of silver. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he may never divorce her as long as he lives.H376H7901H5414H5291H1H2572H3701H802H6031H3201H7971H3117 30"A man must not marry his father's former wife, for this would violate his father.H376H3947H1H802H1540H1H3671
