申命记 24

关于婚姻的条例

1“如果有人娶妻后,发觉妻子行为不检,因而嫌弃她,他可以写休书给她,让她离开夫家。 她离开后,可以自由再婚。 如果她的后夫也嫌弃她,写休书给她,让她离开夫家,或者后夫死了, 前夫不可再娶这已被玷污的女子,因为那是耶和华所憎恶的。你们切不可把这种罪恶带到你们的上帝耶和华将要赐给你们的土地上。

体恤人情

“不可叫新婚的人从军出征或办理公务。他可以留在家里一年,使新婚的妻子快乐。

“不可拿别人的磨或磨的上盘作抵押品,因为这等于拿他们的生命作抵押。

“如果有人绑架自己的同胞,奴役他或卖掉他,必须处死绑架者,除掉你们中间的罪恶。

“遇到麻风病,你们要谨遵利未祭司的指示。你们要谨遵我对他们的吩咐。 要记住你们离开埃及后,你们的上帝耶和华在米利暗身上的作为。

10 “如果你们借贷给同胞,不可走进他家里索取抵押物; 11 要站在外面,等他把抵押物拿出来。 12 如果他是穷人,用自己的外袍作抵押,你们不可把他的外袍留到第二天, 13 要在当天日落之前还给他,好让他盖着外袍睡觉。他会因此祝福你们,你们的上帝耶和华也会将此视为你们的义行。

14 “不可欺压穷苦的雇工,不论他们是你们的同胞,还是住在你们城中的外族人。 15 你们要在每天日落前付给他们工钱,因为他们穷苦,靠工钱维生;否则他们向耶和华控诉你们,你们就有罪了。

16 “不可因孩子犯罪而处死父亲,也不可因父亲犯罪而处死孩子。各人要自负罪责。

17 “你们要公正地对待寄居者和孤儿,不可拿寡妇的衣物作抵押。 18 要记住,你们曾在埃及做过奴隶,你们的上帝耶和华拯救了你们。所以,我吩咐你们这样行。

19 “如果你们在田间收割庄稼时忘了一捆,不可回去取,要留给孤儿寡妇和寄居者。这样,你们的上帝耶和华必使你们凡事蒙福。 20 你们打橄榄时,打过一次后不可再打,要把剩下的留给孤儿寡妇和寄居者。 21 你们摘葡萄时,摘过一次后不可再摘,要把剩下的留给孤儿寡妇和寄居者。 22 要记住,你们曾在埃及做过奴隶。所以,我吩咐你们这样行。

Deuteronomy 24

1Suppose a man marries a woman. But later he decides he doesn’t like her. He finds something shameful about her. So he gives her a letter of divorce and sends her away from his house. Then after she leaves his house she becomes another man’s wife. But her second husband doesn’t like her either. So he gives her a letter of divorce and sends her away from his house. Or perhaps he dies. Then her first husband isn’t allowed to marry her again. The Lord would hate that. When her first husband divorced her, she became “unclean.” Don’t bring sin on the land the Lord your God is giving you as your own.

Suppose a man has just married his wife. Then don’t send him into battle. Don’t give him any other duty either. He’s free to stay home for one year. He needs time to make his new wife happy.

Someone might borrow money from you and give you two millstones to keep until you are paid back. Don’t keep them. Don’t even keep the upper one. That person needs both millstones to make a living.

Suppose someone is caught kidnapping another Israelite. And they sell or treat that person as a slave. Then the kidnapper must die. Get rid of that evil person.

What about skin diseases? Be very careful to do exactly what the priests, who are Levites, tell you to do. You must be careful to obey the commands I’ve given them. Remember what the Lord your God did to Miriam on your way out of Egypt.

10 Suppose your neighbor borrows something from you. And he offers you something to keep until you get paid back. Then don’t go into their house to get it. 11 Stay outside. Let the neighbor bring it out to you. 12 The neighbor might be poor. You might be given their coat to keep until you get paid back. Don’t go to sleep while you still have it. 13 Return it before the sun goes down. They need it to sleep in and will thank you for returning it. The Lord your God will see it and know that you have done the right thing.

14 Don’t take advantage of any hired worker who is poor and needy. That applies to your own people. It also applies to outsiders living in one of your towns. 15 Give them their pay every day. They are poor and are counting on it. If you don’t pay them, they might cry out to the Lord against you. Then you will be guilty of committing a sin.

16 Parents must not be put to death because of what their children do. And children must not be put to death because of what their parents do. People must die because of their own sins.

17 Do what is right and fair for outsiders and for children whose fathers have died. Suppose a widow borrows something from you. And she offers to give you her coat until she pays you back. Don’t take it. 18 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt. Remember that the Lord your God set you free from there. That’s why I’m commanding you to do those things.

19 When you are gathering crops in your field, you might leave some grain behind by mistake. Don’t go back to get it. Leave it behind for outsiders and widows. Leave it for children whose fathers have died. Then the Lord your God will bless you in everything you do. 20 When you knock olives off your trees, don’t go back over the branches a second time. Leave what remains for outsiders and widows. Leave it for children whose fathers have died. 21 When you pick grapes in your vineyard, don’t go back over the vines a second time. Leave what remains for outsiders and widows. Leave it for children whose fathers have died. 22 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt. That’s why I’m commanding you to do these things.
