New Living Translation
25"Suppose two people take a dispute to court, and the judges declare that one is right and the other is wrong.H7379H582H5066H4941H8199H6663H6662H7561H7563 2If the person in the wrong is sentenced to be flogged, the judge must command him to lie down and be beaten in his presence with the number of lashes appropriate to the crime.H7563H1121H5221H8199H5307H5221H6440H1767H7564H4557 3But never give more than forty lashes; more than forty lashes would publicly humiliate your neighbor.H705H5221H3254H3254H5221H7227H4347H251H7034H5869 4"You must not muzzle an ox to keep it from eating as it treads out the grain.H2629H7794H1778 5"If two brothers are living together on the same property and one of them dies without a son, his widow may not be married to anyone from outside the family. Instead, her husband's brother should marry her and have intercourse with her to fulfill the duties of a brother-in-law.H251H3427H3162H259H4191H1121H802H4191H2351H376H2114H2993H935H3947H802H2992 6The first son she bears to him will be considered the son of the dead brother, so that his name will not be forgotten in Israel.H1060H3205H6965H8034H251H4191H8034H4229H3478 7"But if the man refuses to marry his brother's widow, she must go to the town gate and say to the elders assembled there, 'My husband's brother refuses to preserve his brother's name in Israel—he refuses to fulfill the duties of a brother-in-law by marrying me.'H376H2654H3947H2994H2994H5927H8179H2205H559H2993H3985H6965H251H8034H3478H14H2992 8The elders of the town will then summon him and talk with him. If he still refuses and says, 'I don't want to marry her,'H2205H5892H7121H1696H5975H559H2654H3947 9the widow must walk over to him in the presence of the elders, pull his sandal from his foot, and spit in his face. Then she must declare, 'This is what happens to a man who refuses to provide his brother with children.'H2994H5066H5869H2205H2502H5275H7272H3417H6440H6030H559H6213H376H1129H251H1004 10Ever afterward in Israel his family will be referred to as 'the family of the man whose sandal was pulled off'!H8034H7121H3478H1004H5275H2502 11"If two Israelite men get into a fight and the wife of one tries to rescue her husband by grabbing the testicles of the other man,H582H5327H3162H251H376H802H259H7126H5337H376H3027H5221H7971H3027H2388H4016 12you must cut off her hand. Show her no pity.H7112H3709H5869H2347 13"You must use accurate scales when you weigh out merchandise,H3599H68H68H1419H6996 14and you must use full and honest measures.H1004H374H374H1419H6996 15Yes, always use honest weights and measures, so that you may enjoy a long life in the land the LORD your God is giving you.H8003H6664H68H8003H6664H374H3117H748H127H3068H430H5414 16All who cheat with dishonest weights and measures are detestable to the LORD your God.H6213H428H6213H5766H8441H3068H430 17"Never forget what the Amalekites did to you as you came from Egypt.H2142H6002H6213H1870H3318H4714 18They attacked you when you were exhausted and weary, and they struck down those who were straggling behind. They had no fear of God.H7136H1870H2179H2826H310H5889H3023H3373H430 19Therefore, when the LORD your God has given you rest from all your enemies in the land he is giving you as a special possession, you must destroy the Amalekites and erase their memory from under heaven. Never forget this!H3068H430H5117H341H5439H776H3068H430H5414H5159H3423H4229H2143H6002H8064H7911
