TMB 1 "He that is wounded in the stones or hath his private member cut off shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD. NIV 1 No one who has been emasculated by crushing or cutting may enter the assembly of the LORD. TMB 2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD. NIV 2 No one born of a forbidden marriage nor any of their descendants may enter the assembly of the LORD, not even in the tenth generation. TMB 3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever, NIV 3 No Ammonite or Moabite or any of their descendants may enter the assembly of the LORD, not even in the tenth generation. TMB 4 because they met you not with bread and with water in the way when ye came forth out of Egypt, and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor, of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee NIV 4 For they did not come to meet you with bread and water on your way when you came out of Egypt, and they hired Balaam son of Beor from Pethor in Aram Naharaim to pronounce a curse on you. TMB 5 Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam, but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the LORD thy God loved thee. NIV 5 However, the LORD your God would not listen to Balaam but turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the LORD your God loves you. TMB 6 Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever. NIV 6 Do not seek a treaty of friendship with them as long as you live. TMB 7 "Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite, for he is thy brother. Thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian, because thou wast a stranger in his land. NIV 7 Do not despise an Edomite, for the Edomites are related to you. Do not despise an Egyptian, because you resided as foreigners in their country. TMB 8 The children who are begotten of them shall enter into the congregation of the LORD in their third generation. NIV 8 The third generation of children born to them may enter the assembly of the LORD. TMB 9 "When the host goeth forth against thine enemies, then keep thyself from every wicked thing. NIV 9 When you are encamped against your enemies, keep away from everything impure. TMB 10 "If there be among you any man that is not clean by reason of uncleanness that chanceth him by night, then shall he go abroad out of the camp; he shall not come within the camp. NIV 10 If one of your men is unclean because of a nocturnal emission, he is to go outside the camp and stay there. TMB 11 But it shall be, when evening cometh on, he shall wash himself with water; and when the sun is down he shall come into the camp again. NIV 11 But as evening approaches he is to wash himself, and at sunset he may return to the camp. TMB 12 "Thou shalt have a place also outside the camp whither thou shalt go forth abroad. NIV 12 Designate a place outside the camp where you can go to relieve yourself. TMB 13 And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee. NIV 13 As part of your equipment have something to dig with, and when you relieve yourself, dig a hole and cover up your excrement. TMB 14 For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp to deliver thee and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy, that He see no unclean thing in thee and turn away from thee NIV 14 For the LORD your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, so that he will not see among you anything indecent and turn away from you. TMB 15 "Thou shalt not deliver unto his master the servant who has escaped from his master unto thee. NIV 15 If a slave has taken refuge with you, do not hand them over to their master. TMB 16 He shall dwell with thee, even among you, in that place which he shall choose in one of thy gates where it is good for him. Thou shalt not oppress him. NIV 16 Let them live among you wherever they like and in whatever town they choose. Do not oppress them. TMB 17 "There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. NIV 17 No Israelite man or woman is to become a shrine prostitute. TMB 18 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore or the price of a dog into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow, for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God. NIV 18 You must not bring the earnings of a female prostitute or of a male prostitute into the house of the LORD your God to pay any vow, because the LORD your God detests them both. TMB 19 "Thou shalt not lend upon interest to thy brother, interest of money, interest of victuals, interest of any thing that is lent upon interest NIV 19 Do not charge a fellow Israelite interest, whether on money or food or anything else that may earn interest. TMB 20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon interest, but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon interest, that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it. NIV 20 You may charge a foreigner interest, but not a fellow Israelite, so that the LORD your God may bless you in everything you put your hand to in the land you are entering to possess. TMB 21 "When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt not be slack to pay it; for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee, and it would be sin in thee NIV 21 If you make a vow to the LORD your God, do not be slow to pay it, for the LORD your God will certainly demand it of you and you will be guilty of sin. TMB 22 But if thou shalt forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in thee. NIV 22 But if you refrain from making a vow, you will not be guilty. TMB 23 That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and perform, even a freewill offering, according as thou hast vowed unto the LORD thy God, which thou hast promised with thy mouth. NIV 23 Whatever your lips utter you must be sure to do, because you made your vow freely to the LORD your God with your own mouth. TMB 24 "When thou comest into thy neighbor's vineyard, then thou mayest eat grapes to thy fill at thine own pleasure, but thou shalt not put any in thy vessel. NIV 24 If you enter your neighbor’s vineyard, you may eat all the grapes you want, but do not put any in your basket. TMB 25 When thou comest into the standing corn of thy neighbor, then thou mayest pluck the ears with thine hand, but thou shalt not move a sickle unto thy neighbor's standing corn. NIV 25 If you enter your neighbor’s grainfield, you may pick kernels with your hands, but you must not put a sickle to their standing grain.
