Deuteronomy 25

CEB 1 Now two people have a disagreement and they enter into litigation and their case is decided, with the judges declaring one person legally right and the other legally liable. 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. CEB 2 If the guilty party is to be beaten, the presiding judge will have that person lie down and be punished in his presence—the number of blows in measure with the guilt determined. 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, CEB 3 Give no more than forty blows. If more than that is given, your fellow Israelite would be completely disgraced in your eyes. 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. CEB 4 Don't muzzle an ox while it is threshing grain. NIV 4 Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain. CEB 5 If brothers live together and one of them dies without having a son, the dead man's wife must not go outside the family and marry a stranger. Instead, her brother-in-law should go to her and take her as his wife. He will then consummate the marriage according to the brother-in-law's duty. 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. CEB 6 The brother-in-law will name the oldest male son that she bears after his dead brother so that his brother's legacy will not be forgotten 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. CEB 7 If the brother does not want to marry his sister-in-law, she can go to the elders at the city gate, informing them: "My brother-in-law refuses to continue his brother's legacy in Israel. He's not willing to perform the brother-in-law's duty with me." 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.” CEB 8 The city's elders will summon him and talk to him about this. If he doesn't budge, insisting, "I don't want to marry 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,” CEB 9 then the sister-in-law will approach him while the elders watch. She will pull the sandal off his foot and spit in his face. Then she will exclaim: "That's what's done to any man who won't build up his own brother's family!" 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.” CEB 10 Subsequently, that man's family will be known throughout Israel as "the house of the removed sandal." NIV 10 That man’s line shall be known in Israel as The Family of the Unsandaled. CEB 11 If two men are fighting with each other—a man and his fellow Israelite—and the wife of one of them gets into the fight, trying to save her husband from his attacker and does so by reaching out and grabbing his genitals, 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, CEB 12 you must cut off her hand. Show no mercy. NIV 12 you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity. CEB 13 Don't have two different types of money weights in your bag, a heavy one and a light one. NIV 13 Do not have two differing weights in your bag—one heavy, one light. CEB 14 Don't have two different types of ephahs in your house, a large one and a small one. NIV 14 Do not have two differing measures in your house—one large, one small. CEB 15 Instead, you must have only one weight, complete and correct, and only one ephah, also complete and correct, so that your life might be long in the fertile land 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. CEB 16 What's more, all who do such things, all who do business dishonestly, are detestable to the LORD your God. NIV 16 For the LORD your God detests anyone who does these things, anyone who deals dishonestly. CEB 17 Remember, after all, what Amalek did to you on your departure from Egypt: NIV 17 Remember what the Amalekites did to you along the way when you came out of Egypt. CEB 18 how he met up with you on the way, striking from behind those who were lagging back because you were weak and tired, and because he didn't fear God. 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. CEB 19 So once the LORD your God gives you relief from all the enemies that surround you in the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance to possess, you must wipe out Amalek's memory from under the heavens. Don't forget this! 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!
