申命記 22

其他條例

1「如果你們看見同胞的牛或羊走迷了路,不可視而不見,要把牠帶回去交給主人。 如果主人離你們很遠,或者你們不知道主人是誰,就要把牠牽回家,等主人來找時再還給主人。 見到同胞遺失的驢、衣物或其他東西,都要這樣處理,不可視而不見。 如果在路上看見同胞的牛或驢倒在地上,不可視而不見,要幫忙把牠扶起來。

「女人不可穿戴男人的衣物,男人也不可穿戴女人的衣物,因為這是你們的上帝耶和華所憎惡的。

「如果你們在路邊、樹上或地上看見鳥巢,裡面有雛鳥或蛋,並有母鳥伏在上面,不可把母鳥和雛鳥一起取走。 你們可以取走雛鳥,但要放走母鳥。這樣,你們就會凡事順利,得享長壽。

「建造新房時,要在房頂[a]上安設圍欄,免得有人從房頂上掉下來,由你們承擔流血之罪。

「你們不可在葡萄園裡種別的作物,否則你們的收成和園中的果子都要充公。 10 不可讓牛和驢同負一軛耕地。 11 不可穿由羊毛和細麻合織的衣物。

12 「要在外袍的四角綴上穗子。

有關女子貞操的條例

13 「如果有人娶了妻子,與她同房後卻不喜歡她, 14 誹謗她,說,『我娶她時,發現她已經不是處女』, 15 女方父母就要把憑據拿到城門口的長老們面前,證明女兒的貞潔。 16 女方的父親要對他們說,『我把女兒嫁給這個人,現在他不喜歡我女兒, 17 誹謗她,聲稱她結婚時已經不是處女,但這裡有我女兒貞潔的憑據。』女方父母要把女兒新婚之夜用過的床單在長老們面前展開。 18 長老們就必須抓住那人懲處他, 19 罰他賠償一公斤銀子給女方的父親,因為他誹謗了一個以色列的處女。那女子仍要做他妻子,丈夫終生不可休她。

20 「但如果那人的指控屬實,沒有找到那女子貞潔的憑據, 21 就要把她帶到她父親的家門前,由本城的人用石頭打死她。因為她婚前淫亂,在以色列做了可恥的事。你們必須除掉你們中間的罪惡。

22 「如果有人與有夫之婦通姦,必須處死姦夫和淫婦,這樣就從以色列除掉了罪惡。

23 「如果有人在城中遇見已經訂婚的女子,與她行淫, 24 你們必須把二人帶到城門口,用石頭打死他們。那女子該死,因為她在城中卻沒有高聲呼救;那男子該死,因為他姦污了別人的妻子。你們必須除去你們中間的罪惡。

25 「如果有人在野外遇見已經訂婚的女子,強姦了她,必須處死那男子。 26 但不可處死那女子,因為她沒有犯該死的罪,她像被攻擊、殺害的人一樣是無辜的。 27 因為她是在野外被強姦,即使喊叫也無人救她。

28 「如果有人強姦了未訂婚的處女,被抓住後, 29 這人要付給女方的父親六百克銀子,並娶她為妻,終生不可休她,因為他姦污了她。

30 「人不可娶他父親的妻妾,因為這是對他父親的羞辱。

The Message

Deuteronomy 22

11-3 If you see your kinsman’s ox or sheep wandering off loose, don’t look the other way as if you didn’t see it. Return it promptly. If your fellow Israelite is not close by or you don’t know whose it is, take the animal home with you and take care of it until your fellow asks about it. Then return it to him. Do the same if it’s his donkey or a piece of clothing or anything else your fellow Israelite loses. Don’t look the other way as if you didn’t see it.

If you see your fellow’s donkey or ox injured along the road, don’t look the other way. Help him get it up and on its way.

A woman must not wear a man’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing. This kind of thing is an abomination to God, your God.

6-7 When you come across a bird’s nest alongside the road, whether in a tree or on the ground, and the mother is sitting on the young or on the eggs, don’t take the mother with the young. You may take the babies, but let the mother go so that you will live a good and long life.

When you build a new house, make a parapet around your roof to make it safe so that someone doesn’t fall off and die and your family become responsible for the death.

Don’t plant two kinds of seed in your vineyard. If you do, you will forfeit what you’ve sown, the total production of the vineyard.

10 Don’t plow with an ox and a donkey yoked together.

11 Don’t wear clothes of mixed fabrics, wool and linen together.

12 Make tassels on the four corners of the cloak you use to cover yourself.

13-19 If a man marries a woman, sleeps with her, and then turns on her, calling her a slut, giving her a bad name, saying, “I married this woman, but when I slept with her I discovered she wasn’t a virgin,” then the father and mother of the girl are to take her with the proof of her virginity to the town leaders at the gate. The father is to tell the leaders, “I gave my daughter to this man as wife and he turned on her, rejecting her. And now he has slanderously accused her, claiming that she wasn’t a virgin. But look at this, here is the proof of my daughter’s virginity.” And then he is to spread out her bloodstained wedding garment before the leaders for their examination. The town leaders then are to take the husband, whip him, fine him a hundred pieces of silver, and give it to the father of the girl. The man gave a virgin girl of Israel a bad name. He has to keep her as his wife and can never divorce her.

20-21 But if it turns out that the accusation is true and there is no evidence of the girl’s virginity, the men of the town are to take her to the door of her father’s house and stone her to death. She acted disgracefully in Israel. She lived like a whore while still in her parents’ home. Purge the evil from among you.

22 If a man is found sleeping with another man’s wife, both must die. Purge that evil from Israel.

23-24 If a man comes upon a virgin in town, a girl who is engaged to another man, and sleeps with her, take both of them to the town gate and stone them until they die—the girl because she didn’t yell out for help in the town and the man because he raped her, violating the fiancée of his neighbor. You must purge the evil from among you.

25-27 But if it was out in the country that the man found the engaged girl and grabbed and raped her, only the man is to die, the man who raped her. Don’t do anything to the girl; she did nothing wrong. This is similar to the case of a man who comes across his neighbor out in the country and murders him; when the engaged girl yelled out for help, there was no one around to hear or help her.

28-29 When a man comes upon a virgin who has never been engaged and grabs and rapes her and they are found out, the man who raped her has to give her father fifty pieces of silver. He has to marry her because he took advantage of her. And he can never divorce her.

30 A man may not marry his father’s ex-wife—that would violate his father’s rights.
