Deuteronomy 24

GNT 1 "Suppose a man marries a woman and later decides that he doesn't want her, because he finds something about her that he doesn't like. So he writes out divorce papers, gives them to her, and sends her away from his home. NIV 1 If a man marries a woman who becomes displeasing to him because he finds something indecent about her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, GNT 2 Then suppose she marries another man, NIV 2 and if after she leaves his house she becomes the wife of another man, GNT 3 and he also decides that he doesn't want her, so he also writes out divorce papers, gives them to her, and sends her away from his home. Or suppose her second husband dies. NIV 3 and her second husband dislikes her and writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, or if he dies, GNT 4 In either case, her first husband is not to marry her again; he is to consider her defiled. If he married her again, it would be offensive to the Lord. You are not to commit such a terrible sin in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. NIV 4 then her first husband, who divorced her, is not allowed to marry her again after she has been defiled. That would be detestable in the eyes of the LORD. Do not bring sin upon the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance. GNT 5 "When a man is newly married, he is not to be drafted into military service or any other public duty; he is to be excused from duty for one year, so that he can stay at home and make his wife happy. NIV 5 If a man has recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him. For one year he is to be free to stay at home and bring happiness to the wife he has married. GNT 6 "When you lend someone something, you are not to take as security his millstones used for grinding his grain. This would take away the family's means of preparing food to stay alive. NIV 6 Do not take a pair of millstones—not even the upper one—as security for a debt, because that would be taking a person’s livelihood as security. GNT 7 "If any of you kidnap Israelites and make them your slaves or sell them into slavery, you are to be put to death. In this way your nation will get rid of this evil. NIV 7 If someone is caught kidnapping a fellow Israelite and treating or selling them as a slave, the kidnapper must die. You must purge the evil from among you. GNT 8 "When you are suffering from a dreaded skin disease, be sure to do exactly what the levitical priests tell you; follow the instructions that I have given them. NIV 8 In cases of defiling skin diseases, be very careful to do exactly as the Levitical priests instruct you. You must follow carefully what I have commanded them. GNT 9 Remember what the Lord your God did to Miriam as you were coming from Egypt. NIV 9 Remember what the LORD your God did to Miriam along the way after you came out of Egypt. GNT 10 "When you lend someone something, do not go into his house to get the garment he is going to give you as security; NIV 10 When you make a loan of any kind to your neighbor, do not go into their house to get what is offered to you as a pledge. GNT 11 wait outside and let him bring it to you himself. NIV 11 Stay outside and let the neighbor to whom you are making the loan bring the pledge out to you. GNT 12 If he is poor, do not keep it overnight; NIV 12 If the neighbor is poor, do not go to sleep with their pledge in your possession. GNT 13 return it to him each evening, so that he can have it to sleep in. Then he will be grateful, and the Lord your God will be pleased with you. NIV 13 Return their cloak by sunset so that your neighbor may sleep in it. Then they will thank you, and it will be regarded as a righteous act in the sight of the LORD your God. GNT 14 "Do not cheat poor and needy hired servants, whether they are Israelites or foreigners living in one of your towns. NIV 14 Do not take advantage of a hired worker who is poor and needy, whether that worker is a fellow Israelite or a foreigner residing in one of your towns. GNT 15 Each day before sunset pay them for that day's work; they need the money and have counted on getting it. If you do not pay them, they will cry out against you to the Lord, and you will be guilty of sin. NIV 15 Pay them their wages each day before sunset, because they are poor and are counting on it. Otherwise they may cry to the LORD against you, and you will be guilty of sin. GNT 16 "Parents are not to be put to death for crimes committed by their children, and children are not to be put to death for crimes committed by their parents; people are to be put to death only for a crime they themselves have committed. NIV 16 Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin. GNT 17 "Do not deprive foreigners and orphans of their rights; and do not take a widow's garment as security for a loan. NIV 17 Do not deprive the foreigner or the fatherless of justice, or take the cloak of the widow as a pledge. GNT 18 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the Lord your God set you free; that is why I have given you this command. NIV 18 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and the LORD your God redeemed you from there. That is why I command you to do this. GNT 19 "When you gather your crops and fail to bring in some of the grain that you have cut, do not go back for it; it is to be left for the foreigners, orphans, and widows, so that the Lord your God will bless you in everything you do. NIV 19 When you are harvesting in your field and you overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow, so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. GNT 20 When you have picked your olives once, do not go back and get those that are left; they are for the foreigners, orphans, and widows. NIV 20 When you beat the olives from your trees, do not go over the branches a second time. Leave what remains for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow. GNT 21 When you have gathered your grapes once, do not go back over the vines a second time; the grapes that are left are for the foreigners, orphans, and widows. NIV 21 When you harvest the grapes in your vineyard, do not go over the vines again. Leave what remains for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow. GNT 22 Never forget that you were slaves in Egypt; that is why I have given you this command. NIV 22 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt. That is why I command you to do this.
