Deuteronomy 25


25:1 If there shall be a controversy between men, and they come
 to judgment, that [the judges] may judge them; then they shall
 justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked.
25:2 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.
25:3 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 to thee.
25:4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out [the
 corn].
25:5 If brethren shall dwell together, and one of them shall die
 and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without
 to a stranger: her husband's brother shall go in to her, and
 take her to him for a wife, and perform the duty of a husband's
 brother to her.
25:6 And it shall be, [that] the first-born which she beareth,
 shall succeed in the name of his brother [who is] dead, that
 his name may not become extinct in Israel.
25:7 And if the man shall not like to take his brother's wife,
 then let his brother's wife go up to the gate to the elders,
 and say, My husband's brother refuseth to raise up to his
 brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my
 husband's brother.
25:8 Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak to
 him: and [if] he shall stand [to it], and say, I like not to
 take her,
25:9 Then shall his brother's wife come to 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 to
 that man that will not build up his brother's house.
25:10 And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him
 that hath his shoe loosed.
25:11 When men strive together one with another, and the wife of
 the one draweth near to deliver her husband from the hand of
 him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh
 him by the secrets:
25:12 Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thy eye shall not pity
 [her].
25:13 Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and
 a small:
25:14 Thou shalt not have in thy house divers measures, a great
 and a small:
25:15 [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.
25:16 For all that do such things, [and] all that do
 unrighteously, [are] an abomination to the LORD thy God.
25:17 Remember what Amalek did to thee by the way, when ye had
 come forth from Egypt;
25:18 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.
25:19 Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given
 thee rest from all thy enemies on all sides, 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].
