Stripes must not exceed forty.
Deuteronomy 25:1 If there bee a controuersie betweene men, and they come vnto iudgment, that [the Iudges] may iudge them, then they shall iustifie the righteous, and condemne the wicked. Deuteronomy 25:2 And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to be beaten, that the Iudge shall cause him to lie downe, and to bee beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certaine number. Deuteronomy 25:3 Fourtie stripes he may giue him, and not exceed: lest [if] he should exceede, and beate him aboue these, with many stripes, then thy brother should seeme vile vnto thee.
The ox is not to be muzzled.
Deuteronomy 25:4 Thou shalt not mussell the oxe when he treadeth out [the corne].
Of raising seed unto a brother.
Deuteronomy 25:5 If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and haue no child, the wife of the dead shall not marrie without, vnto a stranger: her husbands brother shall go in vnto her, and take her to him to wife, and performe the duetie of an husbands brother vnto her. Deuteronomy 25:6 And it shall be, that the first borne which she beareth, shall succeede in the name of his brother which is dead, that his name be not put out of Israel. Deuteronomy 25:7 And if the man like not to take his brothers wife, then let his brothers wife go vp to the gate, vnto the Elders, and say, My husbands brother refuseth to raise vp vnto his brother a name in Israel: he will not performe the dutie of my husbands brother. Deuteronomy 25:8 Then the Elders of his citie shall call him and speake vnto him: and if he stand [to it], and say, I like not to take her: Deuteronomy 25:9 Then shal his brothers wife come vnto him in the presence of the Elders, and loose his shooe from off his foote, and spit in his face, and shall answere, and say, So shall it bee done vnto that man that will not build vp his brothers house. Deuteronomy 25:10 And his name shall bee called in Israel, the house of him that hath his shooe loosed.
Of the immodest woman.
Deuteronomy 25:11 When men striue together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth neere, for to deliuer her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth foorth her hand and taketh him by the secrets: Deuteronomy 25:12 Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pitie [her].
Of unjust weights.
Deuteronomy 25:13 Thou shalt not haue in thy bagge diuers weights, a great, and a small. Deuteronomy 25:14 Thou shalt not haue in thine house diuers measures, a great, and a small. Deuteronomy 25:15 [But] thou shalt haue a perfect and iust weight, a perfect and iust measure shalt thou haue: that thy dayes may bee lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giueth thee. Deuteronomy 25:16 For all that doe such things, [and] all that doe vnrighteously, [are] an abomination vnto the LORD thy God.
The memory of Amalek is to be blotted out.
Deuteronomy 25:17 Remember what Amalek did vnto thee by the way, when ye were come foorth out of Egypt: Deuteronomy 25:18 How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, [euen] all that were feeble behinde thee, when thou [wast] faint and weary; and he feared not God. Deuteronomy 25:19 Therefore it shall bee when the LORD thy God hath giuen thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy God giueth thee for an inheritance to possesse it; that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from vnder heauen: thou shalt not forget it.
