Deuteronomy 24


24:1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it shall
 come to pass that she findeth 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.
24:2 And when she hath departed from his house, she may go and
 be another man's [wife].
24:3 And [if] the latter husband shall hate her, and write her a
 bill of divorcement, and give [it] in her hand, and send her
 out of his house; or if the latter husband shall die, who took
 her [to be] his wife;
24:4 Her former husband who 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.
24:5 When a man hath newly taken a 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 his wife which
 he hath taken.
24:6 No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone for a
 pledge: for he taketh [a man's] life for a pledge.
24:7 If a man shall be found stealing any of his brethren of the
 children of Israel, and shall make merchandise of him, or sell
 him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt remove evil from
 among you.
24:8 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.
24:9 Remember what the LORD thy God did to Miriam by the way,
 after that ye come forth from Egypt.
24:10 When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not
 go into his house to take his pledge:
24:11 Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost
 lend shall bring out the pledge abroad to thee:
24:12 And if the man [is] poor, thou shalt not sleep with his
 pledge:
24:13 In any case thou shalt deliver to 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 to thee before
 the LORD thy God.
24:14 Thou shalt not oppress a hired servant [that is] poor and
 needy, [whether he is] of thy brethren, or of thy strangers
 that [are] in thy land within thy gates:
24:15 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 should cry against thee to the LORD, and
 it be sin to thee.
24:16 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.
24:17 Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, [nor]
 of the fatherless, nor take a widow's raiment for a pledge:
24:18 But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bond-man in
 Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I
 command thee to do this thing.
24:19 When thou cuttest down thy 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 thy hands.
24:20 When thou beatest thy olive-tree, thou shalt not go over
 the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the
 fatherless, and for the widow.
24:21 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.
24:22 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bond-man in the
 land of Egypt: therefore I command thee to do this thing.
