Deuteronomy 21


1  If3588 one be found4672 slain2491 in the land127 which834 the LORD3068 thy God430 giveth5414 thee to possess3423 it, lying5307 in the field,7704 and it be not3808 known3045 who4310 hath slain5221 him:

2  Then thy elders2205 and thy judges8199 shall come forth,3318 and they shall measure4058 unto413 the cities5892 which834 are round about5439 him that is slain:2491

3  And it shall be,1961 that the city5892 which is next7138 unto413 the slain man,2491 even the elders2205 of that1931 city5892 shall take3947 a heifer,5697 1241 which834 hath not3808 been wrought5647 with, and which834 hath not3808 drawn4900 in the yoke;5923

4  And the elders2205 of that1931 city5892 shall bring down3381 853 the heifer5697 unto413 a rough386 valley,5158 which834 is neither3808 eared5647 nor3808 sown,2232 and shall strike off6203 853 the heifer's5697 neck6203 there8033 in the valley:5158

5  And the priests3548 the sons1121 of Levi3878 shall come near;5066 for3588 them the LORD3068 thy God430 hath chosen977 to minister8334 unto him, and to bless1288 in the name8034 of the LORD;3068 and by5921 their word6310 shall every3605 controversy7379 and every3605 stroke5061 be1961 tried:

6  And all3605 the elders2205 of that1931 city,5892 that are next7138 unto413 the slain2491 man, shall wash7364 853 their hands3027 over5921 the heifer5697 that is beheaded6202 in the valley:5158

7  And they shall answer6030 and say,559 Our hands3027 have not3808 shed8210 853 this2088 blood,1818 neither3808 have our eyes5869 seen7200 it.

8  Be merciful,3722 O LORD,3068 unto thy people5971 Israel,3478 whom834 thou hast redeemed,6299 and lay5414 not408 innocent5355 blood1818 unto thy people5971 of Israel's3478 charge.7130 And the blood1818 shall be forgiven3722 them.

9  So shalt thou859 put away1197 the guilt of innocent5355 blood1818 from among4480 7130 you, when3588 thou shalt do6213 that which is right3477 in the sight5869 of the LORD.3068

10  When3588 thou goest forth3318 to war4421 against5921 thine enemies,341 and the LORD3068 thy God430 hath delivered5414 them into thine hands,3027 and thou hast taken7617 them captive,7628

11  And seest7200 among the captives7633 a beautiful3033 8389 woman,802 and hast a desire2836 unto her, that thou wouldest have3947 her to thy wife;802

12  Then thou shalt bring935 her home8432 to thine house;1004 and she shall shave1548 853 her head,7218 and pare6213 853 her nails;6856

13  And she shall put5493 853 the raiment8071 of her captivity7628 from off4480 5921 her, and shall remain3427 in thine house,1004 and bewail1058 853 her father1 and her mother517 a full3117 month:3391 and after310 that3651 thou shalt go in935 unto413 her, and be her husband,1167 and she shall be1961 thy wife.802

14  And it shall be,1961 if518 thou have no delight2654 3808 in her, then thou shalt let her go7971 whither she will;5315 but thou shalt not3808 sell her at all4376 4376 for money,3701 thou shalt not3808 make merchandise6014 of her, because8478 834 thou hast humbled6031 her.

15  If3588 a man376 have1961 two8147 wives,802 one259 beloved,157 and another259 hated,8130 and they have born3205 him children,1121 both the beloved157 and the hated;8130 and if the firstborn1060 son1121 be1961 hers that was hated:8146

16  Then it shall be,1961 when3117 he maketh 853 his sons1121 to inherit5157 853 that which834 he hath,1961 that he may3201 not3808 make1069 853 the son1121 of the beloved157 firstborn1069 before5921 6440 the son1121 of the hated,8130 which is indeed the firstborn:1060

17  But3588 he shall acknowledge5234 the son1121 of the hated8130 853 for the firstborn,1060 by giving5414 him a double8147 portion6310 of all3605 that834 he hath:4672 for3588 he1931 is the beginning7225 of his strength;202 the right4941 of the firstborn1062 is his.

18  If3588 a man376 have1961 a stubborn5637 and rebellious4784 son,1121 which will not369 obey8085 the voice6963 of his father,1 or the voice6963 of his mother,517 and that, when they have chastened3256 him, will not3808 hearken8085 unto413 them:

19  Then shall his father1 and his mother517 lay hold8610 on him, and bring him out3318 853 unto413 the elders2205 of his city,5892 and unto413 the gate8179 of his place;4725

20  And they shall say559 unto413 the elders2205 of his city,5892 This2088 our son1121 is stubborn5637 and rebellious,4784 he will not369 obey8085 our voice;6963 he is a glutton,2151 and a drunkard.5433

21  And all3605 the men376 of his city5892 shall stone7275 him with stones,68 that he die:4191 so shalt thou put evil away1197 7451 from among4480 7130 you; and all3605 Israel3478 shall hear,8085 and fear.3372

22  And if3588 a man376 have committed1961 a sin2399 worthy4941 of death,4194 and he be to be put to death,4191 and thou hang8518 him on5921 a tree:6086

23  His body5038 shall not3808 remain all night3885 upon5921 the tree,6086 but3588 thou shalt in any wise bury6912 6912 him that1931 day;3117 (for3588 he that is hanged8518 is accursed7045 of God;) 430 that 853 thy land127 be not3808 defiled,2930 which834 the LORD3068 thy God430 giveth5414 thee for an inheritance.5159


1 ἐὰν δὲ εὑρεθῇ τραυματίας ἐν τῇ γῇ ᾗ κύριος ὁ θεός σου δίδωσίν σοι κληρονομῆσαι πεπτωκὼς ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ καὶ οὐκ οἴδασιν τὸν πατάξαντα

2 ἐξελεύσεται ἡ γερουσία σου καὶ οἱ κριταί σου καὶ ἐκμετρήσουσιν ἐπὶ τὰς πόλεις τὰς κύκλῳ τοῦ τραυματίου

3 καὶ ἔσται ἡ πόλις ἡ ἐγγίζουσα τῷ τραυματίᾳ καὶ λήμψεται ἡ γερουσία τῆς πόλεως ἐκείνης δάμαλιν ἐκ βοῶν ἥτις οὐκ εἴργασται καὶ ἥτις οὐχ εἵλκυσεν ζυγόν

4 καὶ καταβιβάσουσιν ἡ γερουσία τῆς πόλεως ἐκείνης τὴν δάμαλιν εἰς φάραγγα τραχεῖαν ἥτις οὐκ εἴργασται οὐδὲ σπείρεται καὶ νευροκοπήσουσιν τὴν δάμαλιν ἐν τῇ φάραγγι

5 καὶ προσελεύσονται οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ Λευῖται ὅτι αὐτοὺς ἐπέλεξεν κύριος ὁ θεός σου παρεστηκέναι αὐτῷ καὶ εὐλογεῖν ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ στόματι αὐτῶν ἔσται πᾶσα ἀντιλογία καὶ πᾶσα ἁφή

6 καὶ πᾶσα ἡ γερουσία τῆς πόλεως ἐκείνης οἱ ἐγγίζοντες τῷ τραυματίᾳ νίψονται τὰς χεῖρας ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν τῆς δαμάλεως τῆς νενευροκοπημένης ἐν τῇ φάραγγι

7 καὶ ἀποκριθέντες ἐροῦσιν αἱ χεῖρες ἡμῶν οὐκ ἐξέχεαν τὸ αἷμα τοῦτο καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ἡμῶν οὐχ ἑωράκασιν

8 ἵλεως γενοῦ τῷ λαῷ σου Ισραηλ οὓς ἐλυτρώσω κύριε ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἵνα μὴ γένηται αἷμα ἀναίτιον ἐν τῷ λαῷ σου Ισραηλ καὶ ἐξιλασθήσεται αὐτοῖς τὸ αἷμα

9 σὺ δὲ ἐξαρεῖς τὸ αἷμα τὸ ἀναίτιον ἐξ ὑμῶν αὐτῶν ἐὰν ποιήσῃς τὸ καλὸν καὶ τὸ ἀρεστὸν ἔναντι κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου

10 ἐὰν δὲ ἐξελθὼν εἰς πόλεμον ἐπὶ τοὺς ἐχθρούς σου καὶ παραδῷ σοι κύριος ὁ θεός σου εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου καὶ προνομεύσεις τὴν προνομὴν αὐτῶν

11 καὶ ἴδῃς ἐν τῇ προνομῇ γυναῖκα καλὴν τῷ εἴδει καὶ ἐνθυμηθῇς αὐτῆς καὶ λάβῃς αὐτὴν σαυτῷ γυναῖκα

12 καὶ εἰσάξεις αὐτὴν ἔνδον εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν σου καὶ ξυρήσεις τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτῆς καὶ περιονυχιεῖς αὐτὴν

13 καὶ περιελεῖς τὰ ἱμάτια τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας αὐτῆς ἀπ᾽ αὐτῆς καὶ καθίεται ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ σου καὶ κλαύσεται τὸν πατέρα καὶ τὴν μητέρα μηνὸς ἡμέρας καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα εἰσελεύσῃ πρὸς αὐτὴν καὶ συνοικισθήσῃ αὐτῇ καὶ ἔσται σου γυνή

14 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν μὴ θέλῃς αὐτήν ἐξαποστελεῖς αὐτὴν ἐλευθέραν καὶ πράσει οὐ πραθήσεται ἀργυρίου οὐκ ἀθετήσεις αὐτήν διότι ἐταπείνωσας αὐτήν

15 ἐὰν δὲ γένωνται ἀνθρώπῳ δύο γυναῖκες μία αὐτῶν ἠγαπημένη καὶ μία αὐτῶν μισουμένη καὶ τέκωσιν αὐτῷ ἡ ἠγαπημένη καὶ ἡ μισουμένη καὶ γένηται υἱὸς πρωτότοκος τῆς μισουμένης

16 καὶ ἔσται ᾗ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ κατακληροδοτῇ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτοῦ οὐ δυνήσεται πρωτοτοκεῦσαι τῷ υἱῷ τῆς ἠγαπημένης ὑπεριδὼν τὸν υἱὸν τῆς μισουμένης τὸν πρωτότοκον

17 ἀλλὰ τὸν πρωτότοκον υἱὸν τῆς μισουμένης ἐπιγνώσεται δοῦναι αὐτῷ διπλᾶ ἀπὸ πάντων ὧν ἂν εὑρεθῇ αὐτῷ ὅτι οὗτός ἐστιν ἀρχὴ τέκνων αὐτοῦ καὶ τούτῳ καθήκει τὰ πρωτοτόκια

18 ἐὰν δέ τινι ᾖ υἱὸς ἀπειθὴς καὶ ἐρεθιστὴς οὐχ ὑπακούων φωνὴν πατρὸς καὶ φωνὴν μητρὸς καὶ παιδεύσωσιν αὐτὸν καὶ μὴ εἰσακούῃ αὐτῶν

19 καὶ συλλαβόντες αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξάξουσιν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὴν γερουσίαν τῆς πόλεως αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν πύλην τοῦ τόπου αὐτοῦ

20 καὶ ἐροῦσιν τοῖς ἀνδράσιν τῆς πόλεως αὐτῶν ὁ υἱὸς ἡμῶν οὗτος ἀπειθεῖ καὶ ἐρεθίζει οὐχ ὑπακούει τῆς φωνῆς ἡμῶν συμβολοκοπῶν οἰνοφλυγεῖ

21 καὶ λιθοβολήσουσιν αὐτὸν οἱ ἄνδρες τῆς πόλεως αὐτοῦ ἐν λίθοις καὶ ἀποθανεῖται καὶ ἐξαρεῖς τὸν πονηρὸν ἐξ ὑμῶν αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ ἐπίλοιποι ἀκούσαντες φοβηθήσονται

22 ἐὰν δὲ γένηται ἔν τινι ἁμαρτία κρίμα θανάτου καὶ ἀποθάνῃ καὶ κρεμάσητε αὐτὸν ἐπὶ ξύλου

23 οὐκ ἐπικοιμηθήσεται τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοῦ ξύλου ἀλλὰ ταφῇ θάψετε αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ὅτι κεκατηραμένος ὑπὸ θεοῦ πᾶς κρεμάμενος ἐπὶ ξύλου καὶ οὐ μιανεῖτε τὴν γῆν ἣν κύριος ὁ θεός σου δίδωσίν σοι ἐν κλήρῳ

1 Quando inventum fuerit in terra, quam Dominus Deus tuus daturus est tibi, hominis cadaver occisi, et ignorabitur cædis reus,

2 egredientur majores natu, et judices tui, et metientur a loco cadaveris singularum per circuitum spatia civitatum:

3 et quam viciniorem ceteris esse perspexerint, seniores civitatis illius tollent vitulam de armento, quæ non traxit jugum, nec terram scidit vomere,

4 et ducent eam ad vallem asperam atque saxosam, quæ numquam arata est, nec sementem recepit: et cædent in ea cervices vitulæ:

5 accedentque sacerdotes filii Levi, quos elegerit Dominus Deus tuus ut ministrent ei, et benedicant in nomine ejus, et ad verbum eorum omne negotium, et quidquid mundum, vel immundum est, judicetur.

6 Et venient majores natu civitatis illius ad interfectum, lavabuntque manus suas super vitulam, quæ in valle percussa est,

7 et dicent: Manus nostræ non effuderunt sanguinem hunc, nec oculi viderunt:

8 propitius esto populo tuo Israël, quem redemisti, Domine, et ne reputes sanguinem innocentem in medio populi tui Israël. Et auferetur ab eis reatus sanguinis:

9 tu autem alienus eris ab innocentis cruore, qui fusus est, cum feceris quod præcepit Dominus.

10 Si egressus fueris ad pugnam contra inimicos tuos, et tradiderit eos Dominus Deus tuus in manu tua, captivosque duxeris,

11 et videris in numero captivorum mulierem pulchram, et adamaveris eam, voluerisque habere uxorem,

12 introduces eam in domum tuam: quæ radet cæsariem, et circumcidet ungues,

13 et deponet vestem, in qua capta est: sedensque in domo tua, flebit patrem et matrem suam uno mense: et postea intrabis ad eam, dormiesque cum illa, et erit uxor tua.

14 Si autem postea non sederit animo tuo, dimittes eam liberam, nec vendere poteris pecunia, nec opprimere per potentiam: quia humiliasti eam.

15 Si habuerit homo uxores duas, unam dilectam, et alteram odiosam, genuerintque ex eo liberos, et fuerit filius odiosæ primogenitus,

16 volueritque substantiam inter filios suos dividere, non poterit filium dilectæ facere primogenitum, et præferre filio odiosæ:

17 sed filium odiosæ agnoscet primogenitum, dabitque ei de his quæ habuerit cuncta duplicia: iste est enim principium liberorum ejus, et huic debentur primogenita.

18 Si genuerit homo filium contumacem et protervum, qui non audiat patris aut matris imperium, et coërcitus obedire contempserit:

19 apprehendent eum, et ducent ad seniores civitatis illius, et ad portam judicii,

20 dicentque ad eos: Filius noster iste protervus et contumax est: monita nostra audire contemnit, comessationibus vacat, et luxuriæ atque conviviis:

21 lapidibus eum obruet populus civitatis, et morietur, ut auferatis malum de medio vestri, et universus Israël audiens pertimescat.

22 Quando peccaverit homo quod morte plectendum est, et adjudicatus morti appensus fuerit in patibulo:

23 non permanebit cadaver ejus in ligno, sed in eadem die sepelietur: quia maledictus a Deo est qui pendet in ligno: et nequaquam contaminabis terram tuam, quam Dominus Deus tuus dederit tibi in possessionem.
