Administration of Justice

1 "You R588 shall not sacrifice to the LORD your God an ox or a sheep which has a blemish or any defect, F248 for that is a detestable thing to the LORD your God.

2 "If R589 there is found in your midst, in any of your towns, F249 which the LORD your God is giving you, a man or a woman who does what is evil in the sight of the LORD your God, by transgressing His covenant, 3 and has gone and served R590 other gods and worshiped them, or R591 the sun or the moon or any of the heavenly host, which R592 I have not commanded, 4 and if it is told you and you have heard of it, then you shall inquire thoroughly. Behold, if it is true and the thing certain that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, 5 then you shall bring out that man or that woman who has done this evil deed to your gates, that is, the man or the woman, and you R593 shall stone them to death. F250 6 "On R594 the evidence F251 of two witnesses or three witnesses, he who is to die shall be put to death; he shall not be put to death on the evidence F251 of one witness. 7 "The R595 hand of the witnesses shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people. So R596 you shall purge the evil from your midst.

8 "If R597 any case is too difficult for you to decide, between one F252 kind of homicide or another, between one F253 kind of lawsuit or another, and between one F254 kind of assault or another, being cases of dispute in your courts, F255 then you shall arise and go up to the R598 place which the LORD your God chooses. 9 "So you shall come to the R599 Levitical priest or the judge who is in office in those days, and you shall inquire of them and they will declare to you the verdict in the case. 10 "You shall do according to the terms F256 of the verdict which they declare to you from that place which the LORD chooses; and you shall be careful to observe according to all that they teach you. 11 "According R600 to the terms F257 of the law which they teach you, and according to the verdict which they tell you, you shall do; you shall not turn aside from the word which they declare to you, to the right or the left. 12 "The man who acts presumptuously R601 by not listening to the priest who stands there to serve the LORD your God, nor to the judge, that man shall die; thus you shall purge the evil from Israel. 13 "Then all the people will hear and be afraid, and will not act presumptuously R602 again.

14 "When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, and you possess R603 it and live in it, and you say, `I R604 will set a king over me like all the nations who are around me,' 15 you shall surely set a king over you whom the LORD your God chooses, one from R605 among your countrymen F258 you shall set as king over yourselves; you may not put a foreigner over yourselves who is not your countryman. F258 16 "Moreover, R606 he shall not multiply horses for himself, nor shall he cause R607 the people to return to Egypt to multiply horses, since the R608 LORD has said to you, `You shall never again return that way.' 17 "He R609 shall not multiply wives for himself, or F259 else his heart will turn away; nor shall he greatly increase silver and gold for himself.

18 "Now it shall come about when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself a copy of this law on a scroll in R610 F260 the presence of the Levitical priests. 19 "It shall be with him and he shall read it all R611 the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, by F261 carefully observing all the words of this law and these statutes, 20 that his heart may not be lifted up above his countrymen F262 and R612 that he may not turn aside from the commandment, to the right or the left, so that he and his sons may continue long in his kingdom in the midst of Israel.
