Deuteronomy 25

BBE 1 If there is an argument between men and they go to law with one another, let the judges give their decision for the upright, and against the wrongdoer. NIV 1 When people have a dispute, they are to take it to court and the judges will decide the case, acquitting the innocent and condemning the guilty. BBE 2 And if the wrongdoer is to undergo punishment by whipping, the judge will give orders for him to go down on his face and be whipped before him, the number of the blows being in relation to his crime. NIV 2 If the guilty person deserves to be beaten, the judge shall make them lie down and have them flogged in his presence with the number of lashes the crime deserves, BBE 3 He may be given forty blows, not more; for if more are given, your brother may be shamed before you. NIV 3 but the judge must not impose more than forty lashes. If the guilty party is flogged more than that, your fellow Israelite will be degraded in your eyes. BBE 4 Do not keep the ox from taking the grain when he is crushing it. NIV 4 Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain. BBE 5 If brothers are living together and one of them, at his death, has no son, the wife of the dead man is not to be married outside the family to another man: let her husband's brother go in to her and make her his wife, doing as it is right for a brother-in-law to do. NIV 5 If brothers are living together and one of them dies without a son, his widow must not marry outside the family. Her husband’s brother shall take her and marry her and fulfill the duty of a brother-in-law to her. BBE 6 Then the first male child she has will take the rights of the brother who is dead, so that his name may not come to an end in Israel. NIV 6 The first son she bears shall carry on the name of the dead brother so that his name will not be blotted out from Israel. BBE 7 But if the man says he will not take his brother's wife, then let the wife go to the responsible men of the town, and say, My husband's brother will not keep his brother's name living in Israel; he will not do what it is right for a husband's brother to do. NIV 7 However, if a man does not want to marry his brother’s wife, she shall go to the elders at the town gate and say, “My husband’s brother refuses to carry on his brother’s name in Israel. He will not fulfill the duty of a brother-in-law to me.” BBE 8 Then the responsible men of the town will send for the man, and have talk with him: and if he still says, I will not take her; NIV 8 Then the elders of his town shall summon him and talk to him. If he persists in saying, “I do not want to marry her,” BBE 9 Then his brother's wife is to come to him, before the responsible men of the town, and take his shoe off his foot, and put shame on him, and say, So let it be done to the man who will not take care of his brother's name. NIV 9 his brother’s widow shall go up to him in the presence of the elders, take off one of his sandals, spit in his face and say, “This is what is done to the man who will not build up his brother’s family line.” BBE 10 And his family will be named in Israel, The house of him whose shoe has been taken off. NIV 10 That man’s line shall be known in Israel as The Family of the Unsandaled. BBE 11 If two men are fighting, and the wife of one of them, coming to the help of her husband, takes the other by the private parts; NIV 11 If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, BBE 12 Her hand is to be cut off; have no pity on her. NIV 12 you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity. BBE 13 Do not have in your bag different weights, a great and a small; NIV 13 Do not have two differing weights in your bag—one heavy, one light. BBE 14 Or in your house different measures, a great and a small. NIV 14 Do not have two differing measures in your house—one large, one small. BBE 15 But have a true weight and a true measure: so that your life may be long in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. NIV 15 You must have accurate and honest weights and measures, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you. BBE 16 For all who do such things, and all whose ways are not upright, are disgusting to the Lord your God. NIV 16 For the LORD your God detests anyone who does these things, anyone who deals dishonestly. BBE 17 Keep in mind what Amalek did to you on your way from Egypt; NIV 17 Remember what the Amalekites did to you along the way when you came out of Egypt. BBE 18 How, meeting you on the way, he made an attack on you when you were tired and without strength, cutting off all the feeble ones at the end of your line; and the fear of God was not in him. NIV 18 When you were weary and worn out, they met you on your journey and attacked all who were lagging behind; they had no fear of God. BBE 19 So when the Lord your God has given you rest from all who are against you on every side, in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage, see to it that the memory of Amalek is cut off from the earth; keep this in mind. NIV 19 When the LORD your God gives you rest from all the enemies around you in the land he is giving you to possess as an inheritance, you shall blot out the name of Amalek from under heaven. Do not forget!
