Deuteronomy 24
New Living Translation
24"Suppose a man marries a woman but she does not please him. Having discovered something wrong with her, he writes her a letter of divorce, hands it to her, and sends her away from his house.H376H3947H802H1166H4672H2580H5869H4672H1697H6172H3789H5612H3748H5414H3027H7971H1004 2When she leaves his house, she is free to marry another man.H3318H1004H1980H312H376 3But if the second husband also turns against her and divorces her, or if he dies,H314H376H8130H3789H5612H3748H5414H3027H7971H1004H314H376H4191H3947H802 4the first husband may not marry her again, for she has been defiled. That would be detestable to the LORD. You must not bring guilt upon the land the LORD your God is giving you as a special possession.H7223H1167H7971H3201H3947H7725H802H310H2930H8441H6440H3068H776H2398H3068H430H5414H5159 5"A newly married man must not be drafted into the army or be given any other official responsibilities. He must be free to spend one year at home, bringing happiness to the wife he has married.H376H3947H2319H802H3318H6635H5674H1697H5355H1004H259H8141H8055H802H3947 6"It is wrong to take a set of millstones, or even just the upper millstone, as security for a loan, for the owner uses it to make a living.H2254H7347H7393H2254H2254H5315H2254 7"If anyone kidnaps a fellow Israelite and treats him as a slave or sells him, the kidnapper must die. In this way, you will purge the evil from among you.H376H4672H1589H5315H251H1121H3478H6014H4376H1590H4191H1197H7451H1197H7130 8"In all cases involving serious skin diseases, be careful to follow the instructions of the Levitical priests; obey all the commands I have given them.H8104H5061H6883H8104H3966H6213H3548H3881H3384H6680H8104H6213 9Remember what the LORD your God did to Miriam as you were coming from Egypt.H2142H3068H430H6213H4813H1870H3318H4714 10"If you lend anything to your neighbor, do not enter his house to pick up the item he is giving as security.H5383H7453H3972H4859H935H1004H5670H5667 11You must wait outside while he goes in and brings it out to you.H5975H2351H376H5383H3318H5667H2351 12If your neighbor is poor and gives you his cloak as security for a loan, do not keep the cloak overnight.H376H6041H7901H5667 13Return the cloak to its owner by sunset so he can stay warm through the night and bless you, and the LORD your God will count you as righteous.H7725H7725H5667H7725H8121H935H7901H8008H1288H6666H6440H3068H430 14"Never take advantage of poor and destitute laborers, whether they are fellow Israelites or foreigners living in your towns.H6231H7916H6041H34H251H1616H776H8179 15You must pay them their wages each day before sunset because they are poor and are counting on it. If you don't, they might cry out to the LORD against you, and it would be counted against you as sin.H3117H5414H7939H8121H935H6041H5375H5315H7121H3068H2399 16"Parents must not be put to death for the sins of their children, nor children for the sins of their parents. Those deserving to die must be put to death for their own crimes.H1H4191H1121H1121H4191H1H376H4191H2399 17"True justice must be given to foreigners living among you and to orphans, and you must never accept a widow's garment as security for her debt.H5186H4941H1616H3490H2254H490H899H2254 18Always remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God redeemed you from your slavery. That is why I have given you this command.H2142H5650H4714H3068H430H6299H6680H6213H1697 19"When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans, and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.H7114H7105H7704H7911H6016H7704H7725H3947H1616H3490H490H3068H430H1288H4639H3027 20When you beat the olives from your olive trees, don't go over the boughs twice. Leave the remaining olives for the foreigners, orphans, and widows.H2251H2132H6286H310H1616H3490H490 21When you gather the grapes in your vineyard, don't glean the vines after they are picked. Leave the remaining grapes for the foreigners, orphans, and widows.H1219H3754H5953H310H1616H3490H490 22Remember that you were slaves in the land of Egypt. That is why I am giving you this command.H2142H5650H776H4714H6680H6213H1697
