Deuteronomy 17
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1"You shall not kill an ox or a lamb that has a flaw or anything bad in it, for LORD JEHOVAH your God, because that is defiled before LORD JEHOVAH your God.

2And if a man or a woman who will do evil before LORD JEHOVAH your God will be found among you in one of your cities that LORD JEHOVAH your God gives to you, and that one will pass over his covenant. 3And will go and serve other gods and will worship them, or the sun, or the moon, or all the host of Heaven, that I have not commanded; 4And they tell you and you hear and you shall investigate well if the account is true and this detestable thing has been committed in Israel: 5Bring out that man or that woman who have done this evil matter in your cities, if it is a man or a woman, and stone them with stones and they shall die. 6By the mouth of two witnesses or by the mouth of three witnesses, one who is condemned to death will be killed; he will not be killed through the mouth of one witness. 7And the hand of the witnesses shall begin with him at the first to kill him and the hand of all the people at the end, and destroy the workers of evil from among you.

8And when a matter of judgment will be concealed from you between blood and blood, and between judgment and judgment, and between a plague of leprosy and between a plague of leprosy, a matter of contention in your cities, you shall arise and you shall go to the place that LORD JEHOVAH your God will choose for it; 9And you shall go to the Priest and to the Levites or to the Judge who will be in those days and you shall ask and they shall show you the word of judgment: 10And you shall act from the mouth of the statement that they show you from that place as LORD JEHOVAH said, and you shall keep and you shall do as they will teach you: 11You shall act from the mouth of the Law that they will show you, and from the mouth of the Judge that they will speak to you, and do not turn aside from the mouth of the answer that they show you, neither to the right, nor to the left. 12And a man who will act with presumption and will not listen to the Priest who stands to serve there before LORD JEHOVAH your God, or to the Judge, that man will be killed, and so destroy the workers of evil from Israel. 13And all the people shall hear and shall fear and they will not be presumptuous again.

14And when you will enter the land that LORD JEHOVAH your God gives to you and you will inherit it and dwell in it, and you will say: “I shall raise up a King over me as these nations that are around me”; 15Certainly raise up over you a King whom LORD JEHOVAH your God has chosen for himself; raise up a King over you from among your brethren; it is not authorized for you that you raise up a foreign man over you who was not from your brethren. 16Only he shall not multiply horses to himself that they will not turn the people to Egypt when horses will be multiplied to him; and LORD JEHOVAH said to you that you may not turn back in this way again. 17And he shall not multiply women to himself, lest they will seduce his heart, and he shall not multiply silver and gold to himself greatly.

18And when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write himself a copy of this written Law in a book from before the Priest and the Levites: 19And it shall be with him and he shall be reading in it all the days of his life, that he may learn to stand in awe of the presence of LORD JEHOVAH his God, and he shall keep all of the commands of this Law and these commands, and he shall do them: 20So that his heart will not be exalted over his brothers and he will not turn away from the commandments, neither to the right, nor to the left, that he may increase the days of his kingdom, he and his children, among the children of Israel.”
