1: When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favor in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.
2: And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.
3: And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;
4: Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
5: When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken.
6: No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge: for he taketh a man's life to pledge.
7: If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you.
8: Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that thou observe diligently, and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall teach you: as I commanded them, so ye shall observe to do.
9: Remember what the LORD thy God did unto Miriam by the way, after that ye were come forth out of Egypt.
10: When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go into his house to fetch his pledge.
11: Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee.
12: And if the man be poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:
13: In any case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless thee: and it shall be righteousness unto thee before the LORD thy God.
14: Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that are in thy land within thy gates:
15: At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest he cry against thee unto the LORD, and it be sin unto thee.
16: The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
17: Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge:
18: But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command thee to do this thing.
19: When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.
20: When thou beatest thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.
21: When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.
22: And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt: therefore I command thee to do this thing.
1: If there be a controversy between men, and they come unto judgment, that the judges may judge them; then they shall justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked.
2: And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to 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.
3: Forty 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.
4: Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.
5: If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband'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.
6: And it shall be, that the firstborn which she beareth shall succeed in the name of his brother which is dead, that his name be not put out of Israel.
7: And if the man like not to take his brother's wife, then let his brother's wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, My husband's brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband's brother.
8: Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him: and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her;
9: Then shall his brother's wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose 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 build up his brother's house.
10: And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe loosed.
11: When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets:
12: Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.
13: Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small.
14: Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small.
15: But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
16: For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto the LORD thy God.
17: Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt;
18: How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God.
19: Therefore it shall be, when 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 shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget it.
1: And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
2: And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3: Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
4: I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
5: As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
6: When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
7: And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
8: The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9: Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
10: Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
11: He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
12: Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
13: They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
14: And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
15: Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
16: Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
17: They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
18: But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
19: And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
20: His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
21: But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
22: These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
23: Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
24: Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
25: He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
26: Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
27: He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?
28: Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
29: We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
30: The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
31: Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
32: Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
33: If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
34: They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
35: Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
36: He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
37: And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
38: And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
39: And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
40: And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
41: Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
