Deuteronomy 25 ©
1 Stripes must not exceed forty. 4 The ox not to be muzzled. 5 The law of raising up seed unto a deceased brother. 11 Of immodesty in a woman. 13 Of unjust weights and measures. 17 The memory of Amalek to be blotted out.
And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy cto be beaten, that the judge shall cause him to lie down, and to be beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certain number.
dForty stripes he may give him, and not exceed: lest, if he should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then thy brother should seem vile unto thee.
¶If fbrethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry *without unto a stranger: her 2husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband's brother unto her.
Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him: and if he stand to it, and say, jI like not to take her;
Then shall his brother's wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and kloose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto that man that will not lbuild up his brother's house.
Then thou shalt cut off her hand, othine eye shall not pity her.
Thou shalt not have in thine house 5*divers measures, a great and a small.
Therefore it shall be, uwhen the LORD thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou vshalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget it.
