21:2 then your elders and your judges shall come forth, and they shall measure to the cities which are round about him who is slain:
21:3 and it shall be, that the city which is nearest to the slain man, even the elders of that city shall take a heifer of the herd, which hasn`t been worked with, and which has not drawn in the yoke;
21:5 The priests the sons of Levi shall come near; for them Yahweh your God has chosen to minister to him, and to bless in the name of Yahweh; and according to their word shall every controversy and every stroke be.
21:7 and they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this blood, neither have our eyes seen it.
21:8 Forgive, Yahweh, your people Israel, whom you have redeemed, and don`t allow innocent blood [to remain] in the midst of your people Israel. The blood shall be forgiven them.
21:9 So shall you put away the innocent blood from the midst of you, when you shall do that which is right in the eyes of Yahweh.
21:11 and see among the captives a beautiful woman, and you have a desire to her, and would take her to you as wife;
21:13 and she shall put the clothing of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in your house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that you shall go in to her, and be her husband, and she shall be your wife.
21:14 It shall be, if you have no delight in her, then you shall let her go where she will; but you shall not sell her at all for money, you shall not deal with her as a slave, because you have humbled her.
21:15 If a man have two wives, the one beloved, and the other hated, and they have borne him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the firstborn son be hers who was hated;
21:16 then it shall be, in the day that he causes his sons to inherit that which he has, that he may not make the son of the beloved the firstborn before the son of the hated, who is the firstborn:
21:19 then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out to the elders of his city, and to the gate of his place;
21:20 and they shall tell 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.
21:21 All the men of his city shall stone him to death with stones: so shall you put away the evil from the midst of you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
21:22 If a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be put to death, and you hang him on a tree;
21:23 his body shall not remain all night on the tree, but you shall surely bury him the same day; for he who is hanged is accursed of God; that you don`t defile your land which Yahweh your God gives you for an inheritance.
