Deuteronomy 25
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1"And if there shall be a judicial case between a man and his neighbor, let them approach the Judges and they shall judge them and they shall justify the innocent and they shall condemn the guilty. 2And if the guilty owes chastisement, the Judge shall lay him down and they shall whip him before him, as is right for his offense. 3Forty times in number they may whip him and they shall not exceed, lest when they exceed, they whip him more than this whipping, and your brother will suffer excessively before your eyes.

4You shall not muzzle the ox in treading.

5And when brothers will dwell as one and one of them will die and he has no son, the wife of the dead will not marry a foreign man, but her husband's brother shall take her and she shall be his wife and he shall perform the duty of a husband's brother to her. 6And the firstborn that she bears will be named by the name of his dead brother, that his name will not be forgotten from Israel. 7And if a man does not want to take the wife of his brother, the wife of his brother shall go up to the gate to the Elders and she shall say: 'My husband's brother does not want to establish his brother's name in Israel and does not want to marry me'. 8The Elders of her town shall call him and they shall speak with him, and if he shall rise and he will say: 'I am not taking her': 9His brother's sister shall come near to him before the Elders and she shall loose his shoe from his foot and she shall spit in his face and she shall say: “Thus it shall be done to the man who will not build up the household of his brother.” 10And his name shall be called in Israel, 'The house of the loosed shoe'.

11And when a man and his brother fight with one another and the wife of one of them will come near to save her husband from the hands of him who is fighting with him, and she reaches her hand and she seizes on his genitals 12Cut off her hand and do not let your eye have pity on her.

13You shall not have a greater weight and a lighter weight in your pouch. 14You shall not have a greater measure and a smaller measure in your house. 15You shall have a perfect weight of righteousness and you shall have a straight measure of righteousness, that your days may multiply in the land that LORD JEHOVAH your God gives to you. 16Because everyone who does these things is defiled before LORD JEHOVAH your God, and everyone who does evil.

17Remember everything that Amaliq did to you in the road when you went out from Egypt: 18Because he met you with a sword and he killed everyone among you who was lagging behind you, and you were shaken and exhausted and he was not afraid before LORD JEHOVAH your God. 19And whenever LORD JEHOVAH your God has given rest to you from all of your enemies who are around you in the land that LORD JEHOVAH your God gives to you as an inheritance, blot out the remembrance of Amaliq from under Heaven, and you shall not forget.”
