Stripes must not exceed forty.
Deuteronomy 25:1 When there shall be strife betweene men, and they shall come vnto iudgement, and sentence shall be giuen vpon them, and the righteous shall be iustified, and the wicked condemned, Deuteronomy 25:2 Then if so be the wicked be worthy to bee beaten, the iudge shall cause him to lie downe, and to be beaten before his face, according to his trespasse, vnto a certaine nomber. Deuteronomy 25:3 Fortie stripes shal he cause him to haue & not past, lest if he should exceede and beate him aboue that with many stripes, thy brother should appeare despised in thy sight.
The ox is not to be muzzled.
Deuteronomy 25:4 Thou shalt not mousell 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 & haue no sonne, the wife of the dead shall not marry without: that is, vnto a stranger, but his kinseman shall goe in vnto her, and take her to wife, and doe the kinsemans office to her. Deuteronomy 25:6 And 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 will not take his kinsewoman, then let his kinsewoman goe vp to the gate vnto the Elders, and say, My kinsman refuseth to rayse vp vnto his brother a name in Israel: hee will not doe the office of a kinsman vnto me. Deuteronomy 25:8 Then the Elders of his citie shall call him, and commune with him: if he stand and say, I wil not take her, Deuteronomy 25:9 Then shall his kinswoman come vnto him in the presence of the Elders, and loose his shooe from his foote, and spit in his face, and answere, and say, So shall it be done vnto that man, that will not buylde vp his brothers house. Deuteronomy 25:10 And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him whose shooe is put off.
Of the immodest woman.
Deuteronomy 25:11 When men striue together, one with another, if the wife of the one come neere, for to ridde her husband out of the handes of him that smiteth him, and put foorth her hand, and take him by his priuities, Deuteronomy 25:12 Then thou shalt cut off her hande: thine eye shall not spare her.
Of unjust weights.
Deuteronomy 25:13 Thou shalt not haue in thy bagge two maner of weightes, 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 & iust weight: a perfite and a iust measure shalt thou haue, that thy dayes may be 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 abomination vnto the Lord thy God.
The memory of Amalek is to be blotted out.
Deuteronomy 25:17 Remeber what Amalek did vnto thee by the way, when ye were come out of Egypt: Deuteronomy 25:18 How he met thee by ye way, & smote ye hindmost of you, all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast fainted & weary, & he feared not God. Deuteronomy 25:19 Therefore, when the Lorde 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, then thou shalt put out the remembrance of Amalek from vnder heauen: forget not.
