Deuteronomy chapter 22

1
"You shall not see your countryman's ox or his sheep straying away, and pay no attention to them; you shall certainly bring them back to your countryman.
2
"If your countryman is not near you, or if you do not know him, then you shall bring it home to your house, and it shall remain with you until your countryman looks for it; then you shall restore it to him.
3
"Thus you shall do with his donkey, and you shall do the same with his garment, and you shall do likewise with anything lost by your countryman, which he has lost and you have found. You are not allowed to neglect [them].
4
"You shall not see your countryman's donkey or his ox fallen down on the way, and pay no attention to them; you shall certainly help him to raise [them] up.
5
"A woman shall not wear man's clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman's clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.
6
"If you happen to come upon a bird's nest along the way, in any tree or on the ground, with young ones or eggs, and the mother sitting on the young or on the eggs, you shall not take the mother with the young;
7
you shall certainly let the mother go, but the young you may take for yourself, in order that it may be well with you and that you may prolong your days.
8
"When you build a new house, you shall make a parapet for your roof, so that you will not bring bloodguilt on your house if anyone falls from it.
9
"You shall not sow your vineyard with two kinds of seed, or all the produce of the seed which you have sown and the increase of the vineyard will become defiled.
10
"You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together.
11
"You shall not wear a material mixed of wool and linen together.
12
"You shall make yourself tassels on the four corners of your garment with which you cover yourself.
13
"If any man takes a wife and goes in to her and [then] turns against her,
14
and charges her with shameful deeds and publicly defames her, and says, 'I took this woman, [but] when I came near her, I did not find her a virgin,'
15
then the girl's father and her mother shall take and bring out the [evidence] of the girl's virginity to the elders of the city at the gate.
16
"The girl's father shall say to the elders, 'I gave my daughter to this man for a wife, but he turned against her;
17
and behold, he has charged her with shameful deeds, saying, "I did not find your daughter a virgin." But this is the evidence of my daughter's virginity.' And they shall spread the garment before the elders of the city.
18
"So the elders of that city shall take the man and chastise him,
19
and they shall fine him a hundred [shekels] of silver and give it to the girl's father, because he publicly defamed a virgin of Israel. And she shall remain his wife; he cannot divorce her all his days.
20
"But if this charge is true, that the girl was not found a virgin,
21
then they shall bring out the girl to the doorway of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death because she has committed an act of folly in Israel by playing the harlot in her father's house; thus you shall purge the evil from among you.
22
"If a man is found lying with a married woman, then both of them shall die, the man who lay with the woman, and the woman; thus you shall purge the evil from Israel.
23
"If there is a girl who is a virgin engaged to a man, and [another] man finds her in the city and lies with her,
24
then you shall bring them both out to the gate of that city and you shall stone them to death; the girl, because she did not cry out in the city, and the man, because he has violated his neighbor's wife. Thus you shall purge the evil from among you.
25
"But if in the field the man finds the girl who is engaged, and the man forces her and lies with her, then only the man who lies with her shall die.
26
"But you shall do nothing to the girl; there is no sin in the girl worthy of death, for just as a man rises against his neighbor and murders him, so is this case.
27
"When he found her in the field, the engaged girl cried out, but there was no one to save her.
28
"If a man finds a girl who is a virgin, who is not engaged, and seizes her and lies with her and they are discovered,
29
then the man who lay with her shall give to the girl's father fifty [shekels] of silver, and she shall become his wife because he has violated her; he cannot divorce her all his days.
30
"A man shall not take his father's wife so that he will not uncover his father's skirt.

3
"No Ammonite or Moabite shall enter the assembly of the LORD; none of their [descendants], even to the tenth generation, shall ever enter the assembly of the LORD,
4
because they did not meet you with food and water on the way when you came out of Egypt, and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you.
5

12
"You shall also have a place outside the camp and go out there,
13
and you shall have a spade among your tools, and it shall be when you sit down outside, you shall dig with it and shall turn to cover up your excrement.
14
"Since the LORD your God walks in the midst of your camp to deliver you and to defeat your enemies before you, therefore your camp must be holy; and He must not see anything indecent among you or He will turn away from you.
15

21
"When you make a vow to the LORD your God, you shall not delay to pay it, for it would be sin in you, and the LORD your God will surely require it of you.
22
"However, if you refrain from vowing, it would not be sin in you.
23
"You shall be careful to perform what goes out from your lips, just as you have voluntarily vowed to the LORD your God, what you have promised.
24
"When you enter your neighbor's vineyard, then you may eat grapes until you are fully satisfied, but you shall not put any in your basket.

Deuteronomy chapter 24

1
"When a man takes a wife and marries her, and it happens that she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some indecency in her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce and puts [it] in her hand and sends her out from his house,
2
and she leaves his house and goes and becomes another man's [wife],
3
and if the latter husband turns against her and writes her a certificate of divorce and puts [it] in her hand and sends her out of his house, or if the latter husband dies who took her to be his wife,
4
[then] her former husband who sent her away is not allowed to take her again to be his wife, since she has been defiled; for that is an abomination before the LORD, and you shall not bring sin on the land which the LORD your God gives you as an inheritance.
5
"When a man takes a new wife, he shall not go out with the army nor be charged with any duty; he shall be free at home one year and shall give happiness to his wife whom he has taken.

14
"You shall not oppress a hired servant [who is] poor and needy, whether [he is] one of your countrymen or one of your aliens who is in your land in your towns.
15
"You shall give him his wages on his day before the sun sets, for he is poor and sets his heart on it; so that he will not cry against you to the LORD and it become sin in you.
16
"Fathers shall not be put to death for [their] sons, nor shall sons be put to death for [their] fathers; everyone shall be put to death for his own sin.

Galatians chapter 4

1
Now I say, as long as the heir is a child, he does not differ at all from a slave although he is owner of everything,
2
but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by the father.
3
So also we, while we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental things of the world.
4
But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law,
5
so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
6
Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!"
7
Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.
8
However at that time, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those which by nature are no gods.
9
But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless elemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again?
10
You observe days and months and seasons and years.
11
I fear for you, that perhaps I have labored over you in vain.
12
I beg of you, brethren, become as I [am], for I also [have become] as you [are]. You have done me no wrong;
13
but you know that it was because of a bodily illness that I preached the gospel to you the first time;
14
and that which was a trial to you in my bodily condition you did not despise or loathe, but you received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus [Himself].
15
Where then is that sense of blessing you had? For I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have plucked out your eyes and given them to me.
16
So have I become your enemy by telling you the truth?
17
They eagerly seek you, not commendably, but they wish to shut you out so that you will seek them.
18
But it is good always to be eagerly sought in a commendable manner, and not only when I am present with you.
19
My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you--
20
but I could wish to be present with you now and to change my tone, for I am perplexed about you.
21
Tell me, you who want to be under law, do you not listen to the law?
22
For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the bondwoman and one by the free woman.
23
But the son by the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and the son by the free woman through the promise.
24
This is allegorically speaking, for these [women] are two covenants: one [proceeding] from Mount Sinai bearing children who are to be slaves; she is Hagar.
25
Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children.
26
But the Jerusalem above is free; she is our mother.
27
For it is written, "REJOICE, BARREN WOMAN WHO DOES NOT BEAR; BREAK FORTH AND SHOUT, YOU WHO ARE NOT IN LABOR; FOR MORE NUMEROUS ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE DESOLATE THAN OF THE ONE WHO HAS A HUSBAND."
28
And you brethren, like Isaac, are children of promise.
29
But as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him [who was born] according to the Spirit, so it is now also.
30
But what does the Scripture say? "CAST OUT THE BONDWOMAN AND HER SON, FOR THE SON OF THE BONDWOMAN SHALL NOT BE AN HEIR WITH THE SON OF THE FREE WOMAN."
31
So then, brethren, we are not children of a bondwoman, but of the free woman.
