16 If 1a malicious witness arises to accuse a person of wrongdoing,
17 then both parties to the dispute shall appear before the LORD, 2before the priests and the judges who are in office in those days.
18 The judges shall 3inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely,
19 4then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. So you shall purge the evila from your midst.
20 And the rest 5shall hear and fear, and shall never again commit any such evil among you.
21 6Your eye shall not pity. 7It shall be life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
