Deuteronomy 22:18

Deuteronomy 22:18

And the elders of that city shall take the man, and chastise
] Not with words, but blows. Jarchi interprets it of beating, and so does the Talmud F24; and both the Targums of Onkelos and Jonathan render it,

``shall beat him;''

that is, with the beating or scourging of forty stripes, save one.


F24 T. Bab. Cetubot, fol. 46. 1.
