And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and bbe another man's wife.
And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;
cHer former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not dcause the land to sin, ewhich the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
¶When thou dost 4lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go into his house to fetch his pledge.
Thou shalt stand *abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee.
And if the man be poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:
In lany case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his own *raiment, and mbless thee: and it nshall be righteousness unto thee before the LORD thy God.
¶When uthou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God vmay bless thee in all the work of thine hands.
When thou beatest thine olive tree, 6thou shalt not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.
