22:1 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ox or his sheep go astray,
and hide thyself from them: thou shalt in any case bring them
again to thy brother.
22:2 And if thy brother shall not [be] nigh to thee, or if thou
shalt not know him, then thou shalt bring it to thy own house,
and it shall be with thee until thy brother shall seek after
it, and thou shalt restore it to him again.
22:3 In like manner shalt thou do with his ass; and so shalt
thou do with his raiment; and with all lost things of thy
brother's, which he hath lost, and thou hast found, shalt thou
do likewise: thou mayest not hide thyself.
22:4 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ass or his ox fall down by
the way, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt surely help him
to lift [them] up again.
22:5 A woman shall not wear that which pertaineth to a man,
neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do
so [are] abomination to the LORD thy God.
22:6 If a bird's nest shall chance to be before thee in the way
on any tree, or on the ground, [whether with] young ones, or
eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs,
thou shalt not take the dam with the young:
22:7 [But] thou shalt in any wise let the dam go, and take the
young to thee; that it may be well with thee, and [that] thou
mayest prolong [thy] days.
22:8 When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a
battlement for thy roof, that thou mayest not bring blood upon
thy house, if any man shall fall from thence.
22:9 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the
fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy
vineyard, should be defiled.
22:10 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.
22:11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, [as] of
woolen and linen together.
22:12 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy
vesture, with which thou coverest [thyself].
22:13 If any man shall take a wife, and go in to her, and hate
22:14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring an
evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came
to her, I found her not a maid:
22:15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take
and bring forth [the tokens of] the damsel's virginity to the
elders of the city in the gate:
22:16 And the damsel's father shall say to the elders, I gave my
daughter to this man for a wife, and he hateth her,
22:17 And lo, he hath given occasions of speech [against her],
saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these [are the
tokens of] my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the
cloth before the elders of the city.
22:18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and
22:19 And they shall amerce him in a hundred [shekels] of
silver, and give [them] to the father of the damsel, because he
hath brought an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she
shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.
22:20 But if this thing shall be true, [and the tokens of]
virginity be not found for the damsel:
22:21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her
father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with
stones that she may die: because she hath wrought folly in
Israel, to be guilty of lewdness in her father's house: so
shalt thou remove evil from among you.
22:22 If a man shall be found lying with a woman married to a
husband, then they shall both of them die, [both] the man that
lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou remove evil
22:23 If a damsel [that is] a virgin shall be betrothed to a
husband, and a man shall find her in the city, and lie with
22:24 Then ye shall bring them both out to the gate of that
city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they may die;
the damsel, because she cried not, [being] in the city; and the
man, because he hath humbled his neighbor's wife: so thou shalt
remove evil from among you.
22:25 But if a man shall find a betrothed damsel in the field,
and the man shall force her, and lie with her; then the man
only that lay with her shall die:
22:26 But to the damsel thou shalt do nothing; [there is] in the
damsel no sin [worthy] of death: for as when a man riseth
against his neighbor, and slayeth him, even so [is] this
22:27 For he found her in the field, [and] the betrothed damsel
cried, and [there was] none to save her.
22:28 If a man shall find a damsel [that is] a virgin, who is
not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they
22:29 Then the man that lay with her shall give to the damsel's
father fifty [shekels] of silver, and she shall be his wife;
