1 H4672 If one be found H2491 slain H127 in the land H3068 which the Lord H430 your God H5414 gives H3423 you to possess H5307 it, lying H7704 in the field, H3045 and it be not known H5221 who has slain him:
2 H2205 Then your elders H8199 and your judges H3318 shall come forth, H4058 and they shall measure H5892 unto the cities H5439 which are round about H2491 him that is slain:
3 H5892 And it shall be, that the city H7138 which is next H2491 unto the slain man, H2205 even the elders H5892 of that city H3947 shall take H1241 a heifer, H5647 which has not been worked with, H4900 and which has not drawn H5923 in the yoke;
4 H2205 And the elders H5892 of that city H3381 shall bring down H5697 the heifer H386 unto a rough H5158 valley, H5647 which is neither plowed H2232 nor sown, H6202 and shall strike off H5697 the heifer's H6202 neck H5158 there in the valley:
5 H3548 And the priests H1121 the sons H3878 of Levi H5066 shall come near; H3068 for them the Lord H430 your God H977 has chosen H8334 to minister H1288 unto him, and to bless H8034 in the name H3068 of the Lord; H6310 and by their word H7379 shall every controversy H5061 and every stroke be tried:
6 H2205 And all the elders H5892 of that city, H7138 that are next H2491 unto the slain H7364 man, shall wash H3027 their hands H5697 over the heifer H6202 that is beheaded H5158 in the valley:
7 H6030 And they shall answer H559 and say, H3027 Our hands H8210 have not shed H1818 this blood, H5869 neither have our eyes H7200 seen it.
8 H3722 Be merciful, H3068 O Lord, H5971 unto your people H3478 Israel, H6299 whom you have redeemed, H5414 and lay H5355 not innocent H1818 blood H5971 unto your people H3478 of Israel's H7130 charge. H1818 And the blood H3722 shall be forgiven them.
9 H1197 So shall you put away H5355 the guilt of innocent H1818 blood H7130 from among H6213 you, when you shall do H3477 that which is right H5869 in the sight H3068 of the Lord.
10 H3318 When you go forth H4421 to war H341 against your enemies, H3068 and the Lord H430 your God H5414 has delivered H3027 them into your hands, H7617 and you have taken H7628 them captive,
11 H7200 And see H7633 among the captives H8389 a beautiful H802 woman, H2836 and have a desire H3947 unto her, that you would have her H802 to your wife;
12 H935 Then you shall bring H8432 her home H1004 to your house; H1548 and she shall shave H7218 her head, H6213 and pare H6856 her nails;
13 H5493 And she shall put H8071 the clothes H7628 of her captivity H3427 from off her, and shall remain H1004 in your house, H1058 and bewail H1 her father H517 and her mother H3117 a full H3391 month: H310 and after H935 that you shall go H1166 in unto her, and be her husband, H802 and she shall be your wife.
14 H2654 And it shall be, if you have no delight H7971 in her, then you shall let her go H5315 where she will; H4376 but you shall not sell H4376 her at all H3701 for money, H6014 you shall not make merchandise H834 of her, because H6031 you have humbled her.
15 H376 If a man H8147 have two H802 wives, H259 one H157 beloved, H259 and another H8130 hated, H3205 and they have born H1121 him sons, H157 both the beloved H8130 and the hated; H1060 and if the firstborn H1121 son H8146 be hers that was hated:
16 H3117 Then it shall be, when H1121 he makes his sons H5157 to inherit H3201 that which he has, that he may H1121 not make the son H157 of the beloved H1069 firstborn H6440 before H1121 the son H8130 of the hated, H1060 which is indeed the firstborn:
17 H5234 But he shall acknowledge H1121 the son H8130 of the hated H1060 for the firstborn, H5414 by giving H8147 him a double H6310 portion H4672 of all that he has: H7225 for he is the beginning H202 of his strength; H4941 the right H1062 of the firstborn is his.
18 H376 If a man H5637 have a stubborn H4784 and rebellious H1121 son, H8085 which will not obey H6963 the voice H1 of his father, H6963 or the voice H517 of his mother, H3256 and that, when they have chastened H8085 him, will not listen unto them:
19 H1 Then shall his father H517 and his mother H8610 lay hold H3318 on him, and bring him out H2205 unto the elders H5892 of his city, H8179 and unto the gate H4725 of his place;
20 H559 And they shall say H2205 unto the elders H5892 of his city, H1121 This our son H5637 is stubborn H4784 and rebellious, H8085 he will not obey H6963 our voice; H2151 he is a glutton, H5433 and a drunkard.
21 H582 And all the men H5892 of his city H7275 shall stone H68 him with stones, H4191 that he die: H1197 so shall you put H7451 evil H1197 away H7130 from among H3478 you; and all Israel H8085 shall hear, H3372 and fear.
22 H376 And if a man H2399 have committed a sin H4941 worthy of H4194 death, H4191 and he be to be put to death, H8518 and you hang H6086 him on a tree:
23 H5038 His body H3885 shall not remain all night H6086 upon the tree, H6912 but you shall in any wise H6912 bury H3117 him that day; H8518 (for he that is hanged H7045 is accursed H430 of God;) H127 that your land H2930 be not defiled, H3068 which the Lord H430 your God H5414 gives H5159 you for an inheritance.
