NIV 2 your elders and judges shall go out and measure the distance from the body to the neighboring towns. CSB 3 The elders of the city nearest to the victim are to get a cow that has not been yoked or used for work. NIV 3 Then the elders of the town nearest the body shall take a heifer that has never been worked and has never worn a yoke CSB 4 The elders of that city will bring the cow down to a continually flowing stream, to a place not tilled or sown, and they will break the cow's neck there by the stream. NIV 4 and lead it down to a valley that has not been plowed or planted and where there is a flowing stream. There in the valley they are to break the heifer’s neck. CSB 5 Then the priests, the sons of Levi, will come forward, for the Lord your God has chosen them to serve Him and pronounce blessings in the Lord's name, and they are to give a ruling in every dispute and [case of] assault. NIV 5 The Levitical priests shall step forward, for the LORD your God has chosen them to minister and to pronounce blessings in the name of the LORD and to decide all cases of dispute and assault. CSB 6 All the elders of the city nearest to the victim will wash their hands by the stream over the heifer whose neck has been broken. NIV 6 Then all the elders of the town nearest the body shall wash their hands over the heifer whose neck was broken in the valley, CSB 7 They will declare, 'Our hands did not shed this blood; our eyes did not see [it]. NIV 7 and they shall declare: “Our hands did not shed this blood, nor did our eyes see it done. CSB 8 Lord, forgive Your people Israel You redeemed, and do not hold the shedding of innocent blood against them.' Then they will be absolved of responsibility for bloodshed. NIV 8 Accept this atonement for your people Israel, whom you have redeemed, LORD, and do not hold your people guilty of the blood of an innocent person.” Then the bloodshed will be atoned for, CSB 9 You must purge from yourselves the guilt of shedding innocent blood, for you will be doing what is right in the Lord's sight. NIV 9 and you will have purged from yourselves the guilt of shedding innocent blood, since you have done what is right in the eyes of the LORD. CSB 10 "When you go to war against your enemies and the Lord your God hands them over to you and you take some of them prisoner, and NIV 10 When you go to war against your enemies and the LORD your God delivers them into your hands and you take captives, CSB 11 if you see a beautiful woman among the captives, desire her, and want to take her as your wife, NIV 11 if you notice among the captives a beautiful woman and are attracted to her, you may take her as your wife. CSB 12 you are to bring her into your house. She must shave her head, trim her nails, NIV 12 Bring her into your home and have her shave her head, trim her nails CSB 13 remove the clothes she was wearing when she was taken prisoner, live in your house, and mourn for her father and mother a full month. After that, you may have sexual relations with her and be her husband, and she will be your wife. NIV 13 and put aside the clothes she was wearing when captured. After she has lived in your house and mourned her father and mother for a full month, then you may go to her and be her husband and she shall be your wife. CSB 14 Then if you are not satisfied with her, you are to let her go where she wants, but you must not sell her for money or treat her as merchandise, because you have humiliated her. NIV 14 If you are not pleased with her, let her go wherever she wishes. You must not sell her or treat her as a slave, since you have dishonored her. CSB 15 "If a man has two wives, one loved and the other unloved, and both the loved and the unloved bear him sons, and if the unloved wife has the firstborn son, NIV 15 If a man has two wives, and he loves one but not the other, and both bear him sons but the firstborn is the son of the wife he does not love, CSB 16 when that man gives what he has to his sons as an inheritance, he is not to show favoritism to the son of the loved [wife] as his firstborn over the firstborn of the unloved wife. NIV 16 when he wills his property to his sons, he must not give the rights of the firstborn to the son of the wife he loves in preference to his actual firstborn, the son of the wife he does not love. CSB 17 He must acknowledge the firstborn, the son of the unloved wife, by giving him a double portion of everything that belongs to him, for he is the firstfruits of his virility; he has the rights of the firstborn. NIV 17 He must acknowledge the son of his unloved wife as the firstborn by giving him a double share of all he has. That son is the first sign of his father’s strength. The right of the firstborn belongs to him. CSB 18 "If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father or mother and doesn't listen to them even after they discipline him, NIV 18 If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, CSB 19 his father and mother must take hold of him and bring him to the elders of his city, to the gate of his hometown. NIV 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. CSB 20 They will say to the elders of his city, 'This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious; he doesn't obey us. He's a glutton and a drunkard.' NIV 20 They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.” CSB 21 Then all the men of his city will stone him to death. You must purge the evil from you, and all Israel will hear and be afraid. NIV 21 Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid. CSB 22 "If anyone is found guilty of an offense deserving the death penalty and is executed, and you hang his body on a tree, NIV 22 If someone guilty of a capital offense is put to death and their body is exposed on a pole, CSB 23 you are not to leave his corpse on the tree overnight but are to bury him that day, for anyone hung [on a tree] is under God's curse. You must not defile the land the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance. NIV 23 you must not leave the body hanging on the pole overnight. Be sure to bury it that same day, because anyone who is hung on a pole is under God’s curse. You must not desecrate the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance.
