Deuteronomy 21
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1"And when someone who was killed will be found in the land that LORD JEHOVAH your God gives to you to inherit, lying in a field, and it is not known who killed him: 2Your Elders and your Judges shall go out and they shall measure the towns which are around him who was killed: 3And the city that is near him that was killed, the Elders of that city shall bring a heifer of an ox that has not pulled anything and has not pulled in a yoke; 4And the Elders of this city shall bring down the heifer to a barren valley that is not cultivated and was not sown, and slaughter the heifer there in the valley: 5And the Priests, the children of Levi, shall bring it, for LORD JEHOVAH your God has chosen them for his service and to bless in the Name of LORD JEHOVAH and every judgment and every blow shall be by the word of their mouths: 6And all Elders of that city that is near him who was killed shall wash their hands over the heifer that was slaughtered in the valley: 7And they shall answer and they shall say: 'Our hand has not shed this blood and our eyes have not seen. 8Atone for your people, Israel, which you have saved, LORD JEHOVAH, and do not account innocent blood against your people Israel, and atonement will be made for them by the blood'. 9And you search out innocent blood from within you, and do what is good before LORD JEHOVAH your God.

10And when you go out for battle against your enemies, LORD JEHOVAH your God shall deliver them into your hands and you shall lead some of them in captivity, 11And you will see in captivity a woman who is beautiful in her appearance and you shall have desire for her to take her to you as a wife; 12And you will bring her within your house, shave her head and pare her nails; 13And take off the garment of her captivity from her and she will dwell in your house and she will weep for her father and for her mother a month of days, and after that you will go into her and you shall take her and she shall be to you a wife. 14And if you do not want her, release her soul and you shall not sell her for money and you shall not make profit by her in exchange for her dishonor.

15And when a man will have two wives, one beloved and one hated, and the beloved and the hated will bear children to him, and a first born son will belong to the hated one: 16In the day when he gives the inheritance to his children, whatever he has, it is not legal for him to place the son of the beloved as the eldest before the son of the hated woman: 17But the first born son of the hated woman must take two portions in all things that are found for him because he is the beginning of his birth and his is the right of first born status.

18And when a man shall have a son who rebels and is rebellious and does not listen to the voice of his father and to the voice of his mother and they discipline him and he does not listen to them: 19His father and his mother shall seize him and they shall bring him out to the Elders of the town and to the gate of his place; 20And they will say to the Elders of his town: 'This our son rebels and is rebellious and does not listen to our voice, and is a glutton and a drunkard'. 21All of the men of his town shall stone him with stones and he shall die, and uproot evil from among you; and all Israel shall hear and shall be afraid.

22And if a man owes a judgment of death for the sake of sins and he will be hangedcrucified on wooda treea cross and he will be killed: 23His corpse will not remain on the wood but bury it on that day, because whoever curses God shall be hangedcrucified, and you shall not defile your land that LORD JEHOVAH your God gives to you as an inheritance.”
