View In My Bible

A Rebellious Son

18 If a man has a stubborn and rebellious1 son2 who does not obey his father and mother3 and will not listen to them when they discipline him, 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. 20 They shall say to the elders, "This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a profligate and a drunkard." 21 Then all the men of his town shall stone him to death.4 You must purge the evil5 from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.6

Various Laws

22 If a man guilty of a capital offense7 is put to death and his body is hung on a tree, 23 you must not leave his body on the tree overnight.8 Be sure to bury9 him that same day, because anyone who is hung on a tree is under God's curse.10 You must not desecrate11 the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance.
