Stripes must not exceed forty.
Deuteronomy 25:1 If there be strife betweene men, they shall come vnto the lawe, and let the Iudges geue sentence betwene them: and iustifie the righteous, & condemne the vngodly. Deuteronomy 25:2 And if any man be vngodly, and worthy of strypes, then let the Iudge cause him to lye downe and to be beaten before his face, accordyng to his trespasse, vnto a certayne number. Deuteronomy 25:3 Fourtie stripes he shall geue hym, and not passe: lest if he shoulde exceede, and beate hym aboue that with many stripes, thy brother should appeare despised and vile before thyne eyes.
The ox is not to be muzzled.
Deuteronomy 25:4 Thou shalt not moosell the oxe that treadeth out the corne.
Of raising seed unto a brother.
Deuteronomy 25:5 If brethren dwell together, and one of them dye, and haue no chylde, the wyfe of the dead shall not marry without vnto a straunger: but his kinsman shall go in vnto her, & take her to wife, and occupie the rowme of his kinsman. Deuteronomy 25:6 And the eldest sonne whiche she beareth, shall succeede in the name of his brother whiche is dead, that his name be not put out of Israel. Deuteronomy 25:7 And if the man wyll not take his kinswoman, then let her go vp to the gate vnto the elders, and say: My kinsman refuseth to stirre vp vnto his brother a name in Israel, neither wyll he marry me. Deuteronomy 25:8 Then the elders of his citie shall call hym, and commune with hym: and if he stande and say, I wyll not take her: Deuteronomy 25:9 Then shall his kinswoman come vnto hym in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe of his foote, and spit in his face, and aunswere, and say: So shal it be done vnto that man, that doth not buylde vp his brothers house. Deuteronomy 25:10 And his name shalbe called in Israel, the vnshodhouse.
Of the immodest woman.
Deuteronomy 25:11 If when men striue together one with another, the wife of the one drawe neare for to ryd her husbande out of the handes of hym that smyteth hym, and put foorth her hande and take hym by the secretes: Deuteronomy 25:12 Thou shalt cut of her hande, and let not thyne eye pitie her.
Of unjust weights.
Deuteronomy 25:13 Thou shalt not haue in thy bagge two maner of wayghtes, a great and a small: Deuteronomy 25:14 Neither shalt thou haue in thine house diuers measures, a great and a small. Deuteronomy 25:15 But thou shalt haue a right and iust waight, and a perfect and a iust measure shalt thou haue: that thy dayes may be lengthed in the lande which the Lorde thy God geueth thee. Deuteronomy 25:16 For all that do such thynges, and all that do vnright, are abhomination vnto the Lorde thy God.
The memory of Amalek is to be blotted out.
Deuteronomy 25:17 Remember what Amalech dyd vnto thee by the way, when ye were come out of Egypt. Deuteronomy 25:18 Howe he met thee by the way, and smote the hyndmost of you, all that were feeble and came behynde, when thou wast faynted and weerie, and he feared not God. Deuteronomy 25:19 Therfore when the Lorde thy God hath geuen thee rest from all thine enemies rounde about, in the lande which the Lord thy God geueth thee to inherite and possesse: see that thou put out the remembraunce of Amalech from vnder heauen, and forget not.
