||Exodus 21:7-11 When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shall not go out
as the male slaves do. If she does not please her master, who
has designated her for himself, then he shall let her be redeemed;
he shall have no right to sell her to a foreign people, since
he has dealt faithlessly with her. If he designates her for his
son, he shall deal with her as with a daughter. If he takes another
wife to himself, he shall not diminish her food, her clothing,
or her marital rights. And if he does not do these three things
for her, she shall go out for nothing, without payment of money.
||Deuteronomy 21:10-14 When you go forth to war against your enemies, and the LORD your
God gives them into your hands, and you take them captive, and
see among the captives a beautiful woman, and you have desire
for her and would take her for yourself as wife, then you shall
bring her home to your house, and she shall shave her head and
pare her nails. And she shall put off her captive's garb, and
shall remain in your house and bewail her father and her mother
a full month; after that you may go in to her, and be her husband,
and she shall be your wife. Then, if you have no delight in her,
you shall let her go where she will; but you shall not sell her
for money, you shall not treat her as a slave, since you have
||Leviticus 21:7, 13-15 They shall not marry a harlot or a woman who has been defiled;
neither shall they marry a woman divorced from her husband; for
the priest is holy to his God. . . And he shall take a wife in
her virginity. A widow, or one divorced, or a woman who has been
defiled, or a harlot, these he shall not marry; but he shall take
to wife a virgin of his own people, that he may not profane his
children among his people; for I am the LORD who sanctify him.
||Numbers 36:1-9 The heads of the fathers' houses of the families of the sons
of Gilead the son of Machir, son of Manasseh, of the fathers'
houses of the sons of Joseph, came near and spoke before Moses
and before the leaders, the heads of the fathers' houses of the
people of Israel; they said, "The LORD commanded my lord to give
the land for inheritance by lot to the people of Israel; and my
lord was commanded by the LORD to give the inheritance of Zelophehad
our brother to his daughters But if they are married to any of
the sons of the other tribes of the people of Israel then their
inheritance will be taken from the inheritance of our fathers,
and added to the inheritance of the tribe to which they belong;
so it will be taken away from the lot of our inheritance. And
when the jubilee of the people of Israel comes, then their inheritance
will be added to the inheritance of the tribe to which they belong;
and their inheritance will be taken from the inheritance of the
tribe of our fathers." And Moses commanded the people of Israel
according to the word of the LORD, saying, "The tribe of the sons
of Joseph is right. This is what the LORD commands concerning
the daughters of Zelophehad, `Let them marry whom they think best;
only, they shall marry within the family of the tribe of their
father. The inheritance of the people of Israel shall not be transferred
from one tribe to another; for every one of the people of Israel
shall cleave to the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers. And
every daughter who possesses an inheritance in any tribe of the
people of Israel shall be wife to one of the family of the tribe
of her father, so that every one of the people of Israel may possess
the inheritance of his fathers. So no inheritance shall be transferred
from one tribe to another; for each of the tribes of the people
of Israel shall cleave to its own inheritance."
||Deuteronomy 7:3-4 You shall not make marriages with them, giving your daughters
to their sons or taking their daughters for your sons. For they
would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods;
then the anger of the LORD would be kindled against you, and he
would destroy you quickly.
||Deuteronomy 25:5-10 If brothers dwell together, and one of them dies and has no son,
the wife of the dead shall not be married outside the family to
a stranger; her husband's brother shall go in to her, and take
her as his wife, and perform the duty of a husband's brother to
her. And the first son whom she bears shall succeed to the name
of his brother who is dead, that his name may not be blotted out
of Israel. And if the man does not wish to take his brother's
wife, then his brother's wife shall go up to the gate to the elders,
and say, "My husband's brother refuses to perpetuate his brother's
name in Israel; he will not perform the duty of a husband's brother
to me." Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak
to him: and if he persists, saying, "I do not wish to take her,"
then his brother's wife shall go up to him in the presence of
the elders, and pull his sandal off his foot, and spit in his
face; and she shall answer and say, "So shall it be done to the
man who does not build up his brother's house." And the name of
his house shall be called in Israel, The house of him that had
his sandal pulled off.
|Exodus 22:16-17 If a man seduces a virgin who is not betrothed, and lies with
her, he shall give the marriage present for her, and make her
his wife. If her father utterly refuses to give her to him, he
shall pay money equivalent to the marriage present for virgins.
Leviticus 18:6-17 None of you shall approach any one near of kin to him to uncover
nakedness. I am the LORD. You shall not uncover the nakedness
of your father, which is the nakedness of your mother; she is
your mother, you shall not uncover her nakedness. You shall not
uncover the nakedness of your father's wife; it is your father's
nakedness. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your sister,
the daughter of your father or the daughter of your mother, whether
born at home or born abroad. You shall not uncover the nakedness
of your son's daughter or of your daughter's daughter, for their
nakedness is your own nakedness. You shall not uncover the nakedness
of your father's wife's daughter, begotten by your father, since
she is your sister. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your
father's sister; she is your father's near kinswoman. You shall
not uncover the nakedness of your mother's sister, for she is
your mother's near kinswoman. You shall not uncover the nakedness
of your father's brother, that is, you shall not approach his
wife; she is your aunt. You shall not uncover the nakedness of
your daughter-in-law; she is your son's wife, you shall not uncover
her nakedness. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother's
wife; she is your brother's nakedness. You shall not uncover the
nakedness of a woman and of her daughter, and you shall not take
her son's daughter or her daughter's daughter to uncover her nakedness;
they are your near kinswomen; it is wickedness.
Leviticus 20:11-12, 14, 17, 19-21 The man who lies with his father's wife has uncovered his fathers
nakedness; both of them shall be put to death, their blood is
upon them. If a man lies with his daughter-in-law, both of them
shall be put to death; they have committed incest, their blood
is upon them. . . . If a man takes a wife and her mother also,
it is wickedness; they shall be burned with fire, both he and
they, that there may be no wickedness among you. . . . If a man
takes his sister, a daughter of his father or a daughter of his
mother, and sees her nakedness, and she sees his nakedness, it
is a shameful thing, and they shall be cut off in the sight of
the children of their people; he has uncovered his sister's nakedness,
he shall bear his iniquity. . . . You shall not uncover the nakedness
of your mother's sister or of your father's sister, for that is
to make naked one's near kin; they shall bear their iniquity.
If a man lies with his uncle's wife, he has uncovered his uncle's
nakedness; they shall bear their sin, they shall die childless.
If a man takes his brother's wife, it is impurity; he has uncovered
his brother's nakedness, they shall be childless.
Deuteronomy 22:30 A man shall not take his father's wife, nor shall he uncover
her who is his fathers.
Deuteronomy 27:20, 22-23 Cursed be he who lies with his father's wife, because he has
uncovered her who is his fathers. And all the people shall say,
"Amen." . . Cursed be he who lies with his sister, whether the
daughter of his father or the daughter of his mother.' And all
the people shall say, "Amen." Cursed be he who lies with his mother-in-law.'
And all the people shall say, "Amen."
||Leviticus 18:18 And you shall not take a woman as a rival wife to her sister,
uncovering her nakedness while her sister is yet alive.
||Deuteronomy 21:15-17 If a man has two wives, the one loved and the other disliked,
and they have borne him children, both the loved and the disliked,
and if the first-born son is hers that is disliked, then on the
day when he assigns his possessions as an inheritance to his sons,
he may not treat the son of the loved as the first-born in preference
to the son of the disliked, who is the first-born, but he shall
acknowledge the first-born, the son of the disliked, by giving
him a double portion of all that he has, for he is the first issue
of his strength; the right of the first-born is his.
Seduction (or Rape)
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 If a man meets a virgin who is not betrothed, and seizes her
and lies with her, and they are found, then the man who lay with
her shall give to the father of the young woman fifty shekels
of silver, and she shall be his wife, because he has violated
her; he may not put her away all his days.
||Leviticus 19:20-22 If a man lies carnally with a woman who is a slave, betrothed
to another man and not yet ransomed or given her freedom, an inquiry
shall be held. They shall not be put to death, because she was
not free; but he shall bring a guilt offering for himself to the
LORD, to the door of the tent of meeting, a ram for a guilt offering.
And the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the
guilt offering before the LORD for his sin which he has committed;
and the sin which he has committed shall be forgiven him.
||Deuteronomy 22:23-27 If there is a betrothed virgin, and a man meets her in the city
and lies with her, then you shall bring them both out to the gate
of that city, and you shall stone them to death with stones, the
young woman because she did not cry for help though she was in
the city, and the man because he violated his neighbor's wife;
so you shall purge the evil from the midst of you. But if in the
open country a man meets a young woman who is betrothed, and the
man seizes her and lies with her, then only the man who lay with
her shall die. But to the young woman you shall do nothing; in
the young woman there is no offense punishable by death, for this
case is like that of a man attacking and murdering his neighbor;
because he came upon her in the open country, and though the betrothed
young woman cried for help there was no one to rescue her.
Exodus 20:14 You shall not commit adultery.
Deuteronomy 5:18 Neither shall you commit adultery.
Leviticus 18:20 And you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor's wife, and
defile yourself with her.
Leviticus 20:10 If a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor, both
the adulterer and the adulteress shall be put to death.
Deuteronomy 22:22 If a man is found lying with the wife of another man, both of
them shall die, the man who lay with the woman, and the woman;
so you shall purge the evil from Israel.
||Numbers 5:11-31 And the LORD said to Moses, "Say to the people of Israel, If
any man's wife goes astray and acts unfaithfully against him,
if a man lies with her carnally, and it is hidden from the eyes
of her husband, and she is undetected though she has defiled herself,
and there is no witness against her, since she was not taken in
the act; and if the spirit of jealousy comes upon him, and he
is jealous of his wife who has defiled herself; or if the spirit
of jealousy comes upon him, and he is jealous of his wife, though
she has not defiled herself; then the man shall bring his wife
to the priest, and bring the offering required of her, a tenth
of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it and put
no frankincense on it, for it is a cereal offering of jealousy,
a cereal offering of remembrance, bringing iniquity to remembrance.
And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD;
and the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel, and
take some of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle and
put it into the water. And the priest shall set the woman before
the LORD, and unbind the hair of the woman's head, and place in
her hands the cereal offering of remembrance, which is the cereal
offering of jealousy. And in his hand the priest shall have the
water of bitterness that brings the curse. Then the priest shall
make her take an oath, saying, `If no man has lain with you, and
if you have not turned aside to uncleanness, while you were under
your husband's authority, be free from this water of bitterness
that brings the curse.' But if you have gone astray, though you
are under your husbands authority, and if you have defiled yourself,
and some man other than your husband has lain with you, then (let
the priest make the woman take the oath of the curse, and say
to the woman) `the LORD make you an execration and an oath among
your people, when the LORD makes your thigh fall away and your
body swell; may this water that brings the curse pass into your
bowels and make your body swell and your thigh fall away.' And
the woman shall say, `Amen, Amen.' Then the priest shall write
these curses in a book, and wash them off into the water of bitterness;
and he shall make the woman drink the water of bitterness that
brings the curse, and the water that brings the curse shall enter
into her and cause bitter pain. And the priest shall take the
cereal offering of jealousy out of the woman's hand, and shall
wave the cereal offering before the LORD and bring it to the altar;
and the priest shall take a handful of the cereal offering, as
its memorial portion, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward
shall make the woman drink the water. And when he has made her
drink the water, then, if she has defiled herself and has acted
unfaithfully against her husband, the water that brings the curse
shall enter into her and cause bitter pain, and her body shall
swell, and her thigh shall fall away, and the woman shall become
an execration among her people. But if the woman has not defiled
herself and is clean, then she shall be free and shall conceive
children. This is the law in cases of jealousy, when a wife, though
under her husband's authority, goes astray and defiles herself,
or when the spirit of jealousy comes upon a man and he is jealous
of his wife; then he shall set the woman before the LORD, and
the priest shall execute upon her all this law. The man shall
be free from iniquity, but the woman shall bear her iniquity."
Leviticus 18:19 You shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness while
she is in her menstrual uncleanness.
Leviticus 20:18 If a man lies with a woman having her sickness, and uncovers her
nakedness, he has made naked her fountain, and she has uncovered
the fountain of her blood; both of them shall be cut off from
among their people.
Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have
committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood
is upon them.
Leviticus 18:23 And you shall not lie with any beast and defile yourself with
it, neither shall any woman give herself to a beast to lie with
it: it is perversion.
Leviticus 20:15-16 If a man lies with a beast, he shall be put to death; and you
shall kill the beast. If a woman approaches any beast and lies
with it, you shall kill the woman and the beast; they shall be
put to death, their blood is upon them.
||Leviticus 25:25-28 If your brother becomes poor, and sells part of his property,
then his next of kin shall come and redeem what his brother has
sold. If a man has no one to redeem it, and then himself becomes
prosperous and finds sufficient means to redeem it, let him reckon
the years since he sold it and pay back the overpayment to the
man to whom he sold it; and he shall return to his property. But
if he has not sufficient means to get it back for himself, then
what he sold shall remain in the hand of him who bought it until
the year of jubilee; in the jubilee it shall be released, and
he shall return to his property.
||Leviticus 25:47-54 If a stranger or sojourner with you becomes rich, and your brother
beside him becomes poor and sells himself to the stranger or sojourner
with you, or to a member of the stranger's family, then after
he is sold he may be redeemed; one of his brothers may redeem
him, or his uncle, or his cousin may redeem him, or a near kinsman
belonging to his family may redeem him; or if he grows rich he
may redeem himself. He shall reckon with him who bought him from
the year when he sold himself to him until the year of jubilee,
and the price of his release shall be according to the number
of years; the time he was with his owner shall be rated as the
time of a hired servant. If there are still many years, according
to them he shall refund out of the price paid for him the price
for his redemption. If there remain but a few years until the
year of jubilee, he shall make a reckoning with him; according
to the years of service due from him he shall refund the money
for his redemption. As a servant hired year by year shall he be
with him; he shall not rule with harshness over him in your sight.
And if he is not redeemed by these means, then he shall be released
in the year of jubilee, he and his children with him.
||Leviticus 25:35-37 And if your brother becomes poor, and cannot maintain himself
with you, you shall maintain him; as a stranger and a sojourner
he shall live with you. Take no interest from him or increase,
but fear your God; that your brother may live beside you. You
shall not lend him your money at interest, nor give him your food
Numbers 35:16-28 But if he struck him down with an instrument of iron, so that
he died, he is a murderer; the murderer shall be put to death.
And if he struck him down with a stone in the hand, by which a
man may die, and he died, he is a murderer; the murderer shall
be put to death. Or if he struck him down with a weapon of wood
in the hand, by which a man may die, and he died, he is a murderer;
the murderer shall be put to death. The avenger of blood shall
himself put the murderer to death; when he meets him, he shall
put him to death. And if he stabbed him from hatred, or hurled
at him, lying in wait, so that he died, or in enmity struck him
down with his hand, so that he died, then he who struck the blow
shall be put to death; he is a murderer; the avenger of blood
shall put the murderer to death, when he meets him. But if he
stabbed him suddenly without enmity, or hurled anything on him
without lying in wait, or used a stone, by which a man may die,
and without seeing him cast it upon him, so that he died, though
he was not his enemy, and did not seek his harm; then the congregation
shall judge between the manslayer and the avenger of blood, in
accordance with these ordinances; and the congregation shall rescue
the manslayer from the hand of the avenger of blood, and the congregation
shall restore him to his city of refuge, to which he had fled,
and he shall live in it until the death of the high priest who
was anointed with the holy oil. But if the manslayer shall at
any time go beyond the bounds of his city of refuge to which he
fled, and the avenger of blood finds him outside the bounds of
his city of refuge, and the avenger of blood slays the manslayer,
he shall not be guilty of blood. For the man must remain in his
city of refuge until the death of the high priest; but after the
death of the high priest the manslayer may return to the land
of his possession.
Deuteronomy 19:11-13 But if any man hates his neighbor, and lies in wait for him,
and attacks him, and wounds him mortally so that he dies, and
the man flees into one of these cities, then the elders of his
city shall send and fetch him from there, and hand him over to
the avenger of blood, so that he may die. Your eye shall not pity
him, but you shall purge the guilt of innocent blood from Israel,
so that it may be well with you.
||Numbers 27:8-11 And you shall say to the people of Israel, "If a man dies, and
has no son, then you shall cause his inheritance to pass to his
daughter. And if he has no daughter, then you shall give his inheritance
to his brothers. And if he has no brothers, then you shall give
his inheritance to his father's brothers. And if his father has
no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his kinsman
that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it. And
it shall be to the people of Israel a statute and ordinance, as
the LORD commanded Moses."
|Numbers 30:3-15 Or when a woman vows a vow to the LORD, and binds herself by
a pledge, while within her father's house, in her youth, and her
father hears of her vow and of her pledge by which she has bound
herself, and says nothing to her; then all her vows shall stand,
and every pledge by which she has bound herself shall stand. But
if her father expresses disapproval to her on the day that he
hears of it, no vow of hers, no pledge by which she has bound
herself, shall stand; and the LORD will forgive her, because her
father opposed her. And if she is married to a husband, while
under her vows or any thoughtless utterance of her lips by which
she has bound herself, and her husband hears of it, and says nothing
to her on the day that he hears; then her vows shall stand, and
her pledges by which she has bound herself shall stand. But if,
on the day that her husband comes to hear of it, he expresses
disapproval, then he shall make void her vow which was on her,
and the thoughtless utterance of her lips, by which she bound
herself; and the LORD will forgive her. But any vow of a widow
or of a divorced woman, anything by which she has bound herself,
shall stand against her. And if she vowed in her husband's house,
or bound herself by a pledge with an oath, and her husband heard
of it, and said nothing to her, and did not oppose her; then all
her vows shall stand, and every pledge by which she bound herself
shall stand. But if her husband makes them null and void on the
day that he hears them, then whatever proceeds out of her lips
concerning her vows, or concerning her pledge of herself, shall
not stand: her husband has made them void, and the LORD will forgive
her. Any vow and any binding oath to afflict herself, her husband
may establish, or her husband may make void. But if her husband
says nothing to her from day to day, then he establishes all her
vows, or all her pledges, that are upon her; he has established
them, because he said nothing to her on the day that he heard
of them. But if he makes them null and void after he has heard
of them, then he shall bear her iniquity.
Clothing (Gender Specific)
|Deuteronomy 22:5 A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall
a man put on a woman's garment; for whoever does these things
is an abomination to the LORD your God.
Exodus 20:12 Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long
in the land which the LORD your God gives you.

you; that your days may be prolonged, and that it may go well
with you, in the land which the LORD your God gives you.
||Deuteronomy 21:18-21 If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son, who will not obey
the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and, though
they chastise him, will not give heed to them, then his father
and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the
elders of his city at the gate of the place where he lives, and
they shall say to the elders of his city, "This our son is stubborn
and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and
a drunkard." Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death
with stones; so you shall purge the evil from your midst; and
all Israel shall hear, and fear.
||Deuteronomy 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, nor shall
the children be put to death for the fathers; every man shall
be put to death for his own sin.
Exodus 13:11-16 And when the LORD brings you into the land of the Canaanites,
as he swore to you and your fathers, and shall give it to you,
you shall set apart to the LORD all that first opens the womb.
All the firstlings of your cattle that are males shall be the
LORDs. Every firstling of an ass you shall redeem with a lamb,
or if you will not redeem it you shall break its neck. Every first-born
of man among your sons you shall redeem. And when in time to come
your son asks you, "What does this mean?" you shall say to him,
"By strength of hand the LORD brought us out of Egypt, from the
house of bondage. For when Pharaoh stubbornly refused to let us
go, the LORD slew all the first-born in the land of Egypt, both
the first-born of man and the first-born of cattle. Therefore
I sacrifice to the LORD all the males that first open the womb;
but all the first-born of my sons I redeem." It shall be as a
mark on your hand or frontlets between your eyes; for by a strong
hand the LORD brought us out of Egypt.
Exodus 22:29-30 The first-born of your sons you shall give to me. You shall do
likewise with your oxen and with your sheep: seven days it shall
be with its dam; on the eighth day you shall give it to me.
Numbers 18:15-16 Everything that opens the womb of all flesh, whether man or beast,
which they offer to the LORD, shall be yours; nevertheless the
first-born of man you shall redeem, and the firstling of unclean
beasts you shall redeem. And their redemption price (at a month
old you shall redeem them) you shall fix at five shekels in silver,
according to the shekel of the sanctuary, which is twenty gerahs.
Numbers 3:11-13 And the LORD said to Moses, "Behold, I have taken the Levites
from among the people of Israel instead of every first-born that
opens the womb among the people of Israel. The Levites shall be
mine, for all the first-born are mine; on the day that I slew
all the first-born in the land of Egypt, I consecrated for my
own all the first-born in Israel, both of man and of beast; they
shall be mine: I am the LORD."
Numbers 3:40-51 And the LORD said to Moses, "Number all the first-born males
of the people of Israel, from a month old and upward, taking their
number by names. And you shall take the Levites for me--I am the
LORD--instead of all the first-born among the people of Israel,
and the cattle of the Levites instead of all the firstlings among
the cattle of the people of Israel." So Moses numbered all the
first-born among the people of Israel, as the LORD commanded him.
And all the first-born males, according to the number of names,
from a month old and upward as numbered were twenty-two thousand
two hundred and seventy-three. And the LORD said to Moses, "Take
the Levites instead of all the first-born among the people of
Israel, and the cattle of the Levites instead of their cattle;
and the Levites shall be mine: I am the LORD. And for the redemption
of the two hundred and seventy-three of the first-born of the
people of Israel, over and above the number of the male Levites,
you shall take five shekels apiece; reckoning by the shekel of
the sanctuary, the shekel of twenty gerahs, you shall take them,
and give the money by which the excess number of them is redeemed
to Aaron and his sons." So Moses took the redemption money from
those who were over and above those redeemed by the Levites; from
the first-born of the people of Israel he took the money, one
thousand three hundred and sixty-five shekels, reckoned by the
shekel of the sanctuary; and Moses gave the redemption money to
Aaron and his sons, according to the word of the LORD, as the
LORD commanded Moses.
Numbers 8:16-18 For they are wholly given to me from among the people of Israel;
instead of all that open the womb, the first-born of all the people
of Israel, I have taken them for myself. For all the first-born
among the people of Israel are mine, both of man and of beast;
on the day that I slew all the first-born in the land of Egypt
I consecrated them for myself, and I have taken the Levites instead
of all the first-born among the people of Israel.
||Deuteronomy 22:13-19 If any man takes a wife, and goes in to her, and then spurns
her, and charges her with shameful conduct, and brings an evil
name upon her, saying, "I took this woman, and when I came near
her, I did not find in her the tokens of virginity," then the
father of the young woman and her mother shall take and bring
out the tokens of her virginity to the elders of the city in the
gate; and the father of the young woman shall say to the elders,
"I gave my daughter to this man to wife, and he spurns her; and
lo, he has made shameful charges against her, saying, 'I did not
find in your daughter the tokens of virginity.' And yet these
are the tokens of my daughter's virginity." And they shall spread
the garment before the elders of the city. Then the elders of
that city shall take the man and whip him; and they shall fine
him a hundred shekels of silver, and give them to the father of
the young woman, because he has brought an evil name upon a virgin
of Israel; and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away
all his days.
||Deuteronomy 22:20-21 But if the thing is true, that the tokens of virginity were not
found in the young woman, then they shall bring out the young
woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city
shall stone her to death with stones, because she has wrought
folly in Israel by playing the harlot in her father's house; so
you shall purge the evil from the midst of you.

favor in his eyes because he has found some indecency in her,
and he writes her a bill of divorce and puts it in her hand and
sends her out of his house, and she departs out of his house,
and if she goes and becomes another man's wife, and the latter
husband dislikes her and writes her a bill of divorce and puts
it in her hand and sends her out of his house, or if the latter
husband dies, who took her to be his wife, then her former husband,
who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after
she has been defiled; for that is an abomination before the LORD,
and you shall not bring guilt upon the land which the LORD your
God gives you for an inheritance.
|Deuteronomy 23:2 No bastard shall enter the assembly of the LORD; even to the
tenth generation none of his descendants shall enter the assembly
of the LORD.
|Exodus 21:22 When men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so that
there is a miscarriage, and yet no harm follows, the one who hurt
her shall be fined, according as the woman's husband shall lay
upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
