Deuteronomy 17

MLV(i) 1 You will not sacrifice to Jehovah your God an ox, or a sheep, in which is a blemish or anything bad, for that is an abomination to Jehovah your God. 2 If there is found in the midst of you, within any of your gates which Jehovah your God gives you, man or woman, who does what is evil in the sight of Jehovah your God, in transgressing his covenant, 3 and has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, or the sun, or the moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded, 4 and it is told you and you have heard of it, then will you inquire diligently. And behold, if it is true and the thing certain, that such abomination is worked in Israel, 5 then you will bring forth that man or that woman, who has done this evil thing, to your gates, even the man or the woman and you will stone them to death with stones.
6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, will he who is to die be put to death. He will not be put to death at the mouth of one witness. 7 The hand of the witnesses will be first upon him to put him to death and afterward the hand of all the people. So you will put away the evil from the midst of you.
8 If there arise a matter too hard for you in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within your gates, then you will arise and get you up to the place which Jehovah your God will choose. 9 And you will come to the priests the Levites and to the judge who will be in those days and you will inquire. And they will show you the sentence of judgment.
10 And you will do according to the tenor of the sentence which they will show you from that place which Jehovah will choose. And you will observe to do according to all that they will teach you, 11 according to the tenor of the law which they will teach you and according to the judgment which they will tell you, you will do. You will not turn aside from the sentence, which they will show you, to the right hand, nor to the left.
12 And the man who does presumptuously, in not listening to the priest who stands to minister there before Jehovah your God, or to the judge, even that man will die and you will put away the evil from Israel. 13 And all the people will hear and fear and do no more presumptuously.
14 When you have come to the land which Jehovah your God gives you and will possess it and will dwell in it and will say, I will set a king over me like all the nations that are all around me, 15 you will surely set him king over you whom Jehovah your God will choose. You will set a king over you from among your brothers. You may not put a foreigner over you who is not your brother.
16 Only he will not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he may multiply horses, inasmuch as Jehovah has said to you*, You* will hereafter return no more that way. 17 Neither will he multiply wives to himself, that his heart do not turn away. Neither will he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.
18 And it will be, when he sits upon the throne of his kingdom, that he will write for him a copy of this law in a book, out of it before the priests the Levites, 19 and it will be with him. And he will read in it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear Jehovah his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them, 20 that his heart not be lifted up above his brothers and that he does not turn aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left, to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his sons, in the midst of Israel.
