D’varim (Deuteronomy) 21:10-25:19

Rishon [1st]: 21 10When you go forth to battle against your enemies, and ADONAI your God delivers them into your hands, and you carry them away captive, 11and see among the captives a beautiful woman, and you have a desire to her, and would take her to you as wife; 12then you shall bring her home to your house; and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails; 13and she shall put the clothing of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in your house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that you shall go in to her, and be her husband, and she shall be your wife. 14It shall be, if you have no delight in her, then you shall let her go where she will; but you shall not sell her at all for money, you shall not deal with her as a slave, because you have humbled her.

15If a man have two wives, the one beloved, and the other hated, and they have borne him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the firstborn son be hers who was hated; 16then it shall be, in the day that he causes his sons to inherit that which he has, that he may not make the son of the beloved the firstborn before the son of the hated, who is the firstborn: 17but he shall acknowledge the firstborn, the son of the hated, by giving him a double portion of all that he has; for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his.

18If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, who will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and, though they chasten him, will not listen to them; 19then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out to the elders of his city, and to the gate of his place; 20and they shall tell the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. 21All the men of his city shall stone him to death with stones: so shall you put away the evil from the midst of you; and all Yisra'el shall hear, and fear.

 [TO TOP]

Sheni [2nd]: 22If a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be put to death, and you hang him on a tree; 23his body shall not remain all night on the tree, but you shall surely bury him the same day; for he who is hanged is accursed of God; that you don't defile your land which ADONAI your God gives you for an inheritance.

22 1You shall not see your brother's ox or his sheep go astray, and hide yourself from them: you shall surely bring them again to your brother. 2If your brother isn't near to you, or if you don't know him, then you shall bring it home to your house, and it shall be with you until your brother seek after it, and you shall restore it to him. 3So shall you do with his donkey; and so shall you do with his garment; and so shall you do with every lost thing of your brother's, which he has lost, and you have found: you may not hide yourself.

4You shall not see your brother's donkey or his ox fallen down by the way, and hide yourself from them: you shall surely help him to lift them up again.

5A woman shall not wear men's clothing, neither shall a man put on women's clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to ADONAI your God.

6If a bird's nest chance to be before you in the way, in any tree or on the ground, with young ones or eggs, and the hen sitting on the young, or on the eggs, you shall not take the hen with the young: 7you shall surely let the hen go, but the young you may take to yourself; that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days.

 [TO TOP]

Shlishi [3rd]: 8When you build a new house, then you shall make a battlement for your roof, that you don't bring blood on your house, if any man fall from there.

9You shall not sow your vineyard with two kinds of seed, lest the whole fruit be forfeited, the seed which you have sown, and the increase of the vineyard. 10You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together. 11You shall not wear a mixed stuff, wool and linen together.

12You shall make you tzitziyot on the four borders of your cloak, with which you cover yourself.

13If any man take a wife, and go in to her, and hate her, 14and lay shameful things to her charge, and bring up an evil name on her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came near to her, I didn't find in her the tokens of virginity; 15then shall the father of the young lady, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the young lady's virginity to the elders of the city in the gate; 16and the young lady's father shall tell the elders, I gave my daughter to this man to wife, and he hates her; 17and, behold, he has laid shameful things to her charge, saying, I didn't find in your daughter the tokens of virginity; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. They shall spread the garment before the elders of the city. 18The elders of that city shall take the man and chastise him; 19and they shall fine him one hundred shekels of silver, and give them to the father of the young lady, because he has brought up an evil name on a virgin of Yisra'el: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.

20But if this thing be true, that the tokens of virginity were not found in the young lady; 21then they shall bring out the young lady to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has done folly in Yisra'el, to play the prostitute in her father's house: so shall you put away the evil from the midst of you.

22If a man be found lying with a woman married to a husband, then they shall both of them die, the man who lay with the woman, and the woman: so shall you put away the evil from Yisra'el.

23If there be a young lady who is a virgin pledged to be married to a husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; 24then you shall bring them both out to the gate of that city, and you shall stone them to death with stones; the lady, because she didn't cry, being in the city; and the man, because he has humbled his neighbor's wife: so you shall put away the evil from the midst of you.

25But if the man find the lady who is pledged to be married in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her; then the man only who lay with her shall die: 26but to the lady you shall do nothing; there is in the lady no sin worthy of death: for as when a man rises against his neighbor, and kills him, even so is this matter; 27for he found her in the field, the pledged to be married lady cried, and there was none to save her.

28If a man find a lady who is a virgin, who is not pledged to be married, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; 29then the man who lay with her shall give to the lady's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife, because he has humbled her; he may not put her away all his days.

30A man shall not take his father's wife, and shall not uncover his father's skirt.

23 1He who is wounded in the stones, or has his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the assembly of ADONAI .

2A bastard shall not enter into the assembly of ADONAI; even to the tenth generation shall none of his enter into the assembly of ADONAI.

3An `Ammonite or a Mo'avite shall not enter into the assembly of ADONAI; even to the tenth generation shall none belonging to them enter into the assembly of ADONAI forever: 4because they didn't meet you with bread and with water in the way, when you came forth out of Egypt, and because they hired against you Bil`am the son of Be'or from Petor of Aram-Naharayim, to curse you. 5Nevertheless ADONAI your God wouldn't listen to Bil`am; but ADONAI your God turned the curse into a blessing to you, because ADONAI your God loved you. 6You shall not seek their shalom nor their prosperity all your days forever.

 [TO TOP]

R'vi'i [4th]: 7You shall not abhor an Edomite; for he is your brother: you shall not abhor a Mitzrian, because you lived as a foreigner in his land. 8The children of the third generation who are born to them shall enter into the assembly of ADONAI.

9When you go forth in camp against your enemies, then you shall keep you from every evil thing. 10If there be among you any man, who is not clean by reason of that which happens him by night, then shall he go abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp: 11but it shall be, when evening comes on, he shall bathe himself in water; and when the sun is down, he shall come within the camp. 12You shall have a place also outside of the camp, where you shall go forth abroad: 13and you shall have a paddle among your weapons; and it shall be, when you sit down abroad, you shall dig therewith, and shall turn back and cover that which comes from you: 14for ADONAI your God walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you, and to give up your enemies before you; therefore shall your camp be holy, that he may not see an unclean thing in you, and turn away from you.

15You shall not deliver to his master a servant who is escaped from his master to you: 16he shall dwell with you, in the midst of you, in the place which he shall choose within one of your gates, where it pleases him best: you shall not oppress him.

17There shall be no prostitute of the daughters of Yisra'el, neither shall there be a sodomite of the sons of Yisra'el.

18You shall not bring the hire of a prostitute, or the wages of a dog, into the house of ADONAI your God for any vow: for even both these are an abomination to ADONAI your God.

19You shall not lend on interest to your brother; interest of money, interest of food, interest of anything that is lent on interest: 20to a foreigner you may lend on interest; but to your brother you shall not lend on interest, that ADONAI your God may bless you in all that you put your hand to, in the land where you go in to possess it.

21When you shall vow a vow to ADONAI your God, you shall not be slack to pay it: for ADONAI your God will surely require it of you; and it would be sin in you. 22But if you shall forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in you. 23:23That which is gone out of your lips you shall observe and do; according as you have vowed to ADONAI your God, a freewill-offering, which you have promised with your mouth.

[TO TOP]

Chamishi [5th]: 24When you come into your neighbor's vineyard, then you may eat of grapes your fill at your own pleasure; but you shall not put any in your vessel. 25When you come into your neighbor's standing grain, then you may pluck the ears with your hand; but you shall not move a sickle to your neighbor's standing grain.

24 1When a man takes a wife, and marries her, then it shall be, if she find no favor in his eyes, because he has found some unseemly thing in her, that he shall write her a bill of divorce, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 2When she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife. 3If the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorce, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, who took her to be his wife; 4her 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 ADONAI: and you shall not cause the land to sin, which ADONAI your God gives you for an inheritance.

[TO TOP]

Shishi [6th]: 5When a man takes a new wife, he shall not go out in the host, neither shall he be charged with any business: he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer his wife whom he has taken.

6No man shall take the mill or the upper millstone to pledge; for he takes a man's life to pledge.

7If a man be found stealing any of his brothers of the children of Yisra'el, and he deal with him as a slave, or sell him; then that thief shall die: so shall you put away the evil from the midst of you.

8Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that you observe diligently, and do according to all that the kohanim the Levites shall teach you: as I commanded them, so you shall observe to do. 9Remember what ADONAI your God did to Miryam, by the way as you came forth out of Egypt.

10When you do lend your neighbor any manner of loan, you shall not go into his house to get his pledge. 11You shall stand outside, and the man to whom you do lend shall bring forth the pledge outside to you. 12If he be a poor man, you shall not sleep with his pledge; 13you shall surely restore to him the pledge when the sun goes down, that he may sleep in his garment, and bless you: and it shall be righteousness to you before ADONAI your God.

 [TO TOP]

Shvi'i [7th]: 14You shall not oppress a hired servant who is poor and needy, whether he be of your brothers, or of your foreigners who are in your land within your gates: 15in his day you shall give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down on it; for he is poor, and sets his heart on it: lest he cry against you to ADONAI, and it be sin to you.

16The 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.

17You shall not wrest the justice due to the foreigner, or to the fatherless, nor take the widow's clothing to pledge; 18but you shall remember that you were a bondservant in Egypt, and ADONAI your G-d redeemed you there: therefore I command you to do this thing.

19When you reap your harvest in your field, and have forgot a sheaf in the field, you shall not go again to get it: it shall be for the foreigner, for the fatherless, and for the widow; that ADONAI your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. 20When you beat your olive tree, you shall not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the foreigner, for the fatherless, and for the widow. 21When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not glean it after you: it shall be for the foreigner, for the fatherless, and for the widow. 22You shall remember that you were a bondservant in the land of Egypt: therefore I command you to do this thing.

25 1If there be a controversy between men, and they come to judgment, and the judges judge them; then they shall justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked; 2and 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 wickedness, by number. 3Forty stripes he may give him, he shall not exceed; lest, if he should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then your brother should seem vile to you.

4You shall not muzzle the ox when he treads out the grain.

5If brothers dwell together, and one of them die, and have no son, the wife of the dead shall not be married outside to a stranger: her husband's brother shall go in to her, and take her to him as wife, and perform the duty of a husband's brother to her. 6It shall be, that the firstborn whom she bears shall succeed in the name of his brother who is dead, that his name not be blotted out of Yisra'el. 7If the man doesn't want to take his brother's wife, then his brother's wife shall go up to the gate to the elders, and say, My husband's brother refuses to raise up to his brother a name in Yisra'el; he will not perform the duty of a husband's brother to me. 8Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak to him: and if he stand, and say, I don't want to take her; 9then his brother's wife shall come to him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his face; and she shall answer and say, So shall it be done to the man who does not build up his brother's house. 10His name shall be called in Yisra'el, The house of him who has his shoe untied.

11When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draws near to deliver her husband out of the hand of him who strikes him, and puts forth her hand, and takes him by the secrets; 12then you shall cut off her hand, your eye shall have no pity.

13You shall not have in your bag diverse weights, a great and a small. 14You shall not have in your house diverse measures, a great and a small. 15A perfect and just weight shall you have; a perfect and just measure shall you have: that your days may be long in the land which ADONAI your God gives you. 16For all who do such things, even all who do unrighteously, are an abomination to ADONAI your God.

Maftir [Concluding]: 17Remember what `Amalek did to you by the way as you came forth out of Egypt; 18how he met you by the way, and struck the hindmost of you, all who were feeble behind you, when you were faint and weary; and he didn't fear God. 19Therefore it shall be, when ADONAI your God has given you rest from all your enemies round about, in the land which ADONAI your God gives you for an inheritance to possess it, that you shall blot out the memory of `Amalek from under the sky; you shall not forget.

Yesha‘yahu (Isaiah) 52:13-54:10

53 13Behold, my servant shall deal wisely,
he shall be exalted and lifted up, and shall be very high.

14Like as many were astonished at you
(his visage was so marred more than any man,
and his form more than the sons of men),
15so shall he sprinkle many nations;
kings shall shut their mouths at him:
for that which had not been told them shall they see;
and that which they had not heard shall they understand.

54 1Who has believed our message?
and to whom has the arm of ADONAI been revealed?

2For he grew up before him as a tender plant,
and as a root out of a dry ground:
he has no form nor comeliness;
and when we see him,
there is no beauty that we should desire him.

3He was despised, and rejected by men;
a man of suffering, and acquainted with disease:
and as one from whom men hide their face he was despised;
and we didn't respect him.

4Surely he has borne our sickness,
and carried our suffering;
yet we considered him plagued,
struck by God, and afflicted.

5But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought our shalom was on him;
and by his wounds we are healed.

6All we like sheep have gone astray;
everyone has turned to his own way;
and ADONAI has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

7He was oppressed,
yet when he was afflicted he didn't open his mouth;
as a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and as a sheep that before its shearers is mute,
so he didn't open his mouth.

8By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
and as for his generation,
who among them considered that he was cut off
out of the land of the living for the disobedience of my people
to whom the stroke was due?

9They made his grave with the wicked,
and with a rich man in his death;
although he had done no violence,
neither was any deceit in his mouth.

10Yet it pleased ADONAI to bruise him;
he has put him to grief:
when you shall make his soul an offering for sin,
he shall see his seed,
he shall prolong his days,
and the pleasure of ADONAI shall prosper in his hand.

11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied:
by the knowledge of himself shall my righteous servant justify many;
and he shall bear their iniquities.

12Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great,
and he shall divide the spoil with the strong;
because he poured out his soul to death,
and was numbered with the transgressors:
yet he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.

55 1Sing, barren, you who didn't bear;
break forth into singing, and cry aloud,
you who did not travail with child:
for more are the children of the desolate
than the children of the married wife, says ADONAI.

2Enlarge the place of your tent,
and let them stretch forth the curtains of your habitations;
don't spare: lengthen your cords,
and strengthen your stakes.

3For you shall spread aboard on the right hand and on the left;
and your seed shall possess the nations,
and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

4Don't be afraid; for you shall not be ashamed:
neither be confounded; for you shall not be disappointed:
for you shall forget the shame of your youth;
and the reproach of your widowhood shall you remember no more.

5For your Maker is your husband;
ADONAI of Hosts is his name:
and the Holy One of Yisra'el is your Redeemer;
the God of the whole earth shall he be called.

6For ADONAI has called you
as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit,
even a wife of youth,
when she is cast off, says your God.

7For a small moment have I forsaken you;
but with great mercies will I gather you.
8In overflowing wrath I hid my face from you for a moment;
but with everlasting loving kindness will I have mercy on you,
says ADONAI your Redeemer.

9For this is as the waters of Noach to me;
for as I have sworn that the waters of Noach
shall no more go over the earth,
so have I sworn that I will not be angry with you, nor rebuke you.

10For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed;
but my loving kindness shall not depart from you,
neither shall my covenant of shalom be removed,
says ADONAI who has mercy on you.

Matthew 5:31-32

“It was also said, ‘Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorce,’ but I tell you that whoever who puts away his wife, except for the cause of sexual immorality, makes her an adulteress; and whoever marries her when she is put away commits adultery.”

Mark 10:2-12

Perushim came to him testing him, and asked him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” He answered, “What did Moshe command you?” They said, “Moshe allowed a certificate of divorce to be written, and to divorce her.” But Yeshua said to them, “For your hardness of heart, he wrote you this mitzvah. But from the beginning of the creation, ‘God made them male and female. For this cause will a man leave his father and mother, and will join to his wife, and the two will become one flesh,’ so that they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.” In the house, his talmidim asked him again about the same matter. He said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife, and marries another, commits adultery against her. If a woman herself divorces her husband, and marries another, she commits adultery.”

Mattityahu (Matthew) 19:3-12

Perushim came to him, testing him, and saying, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason?” He answered, “Haven't you read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this cause a man will leave his father and mother, and will join to his wife; and the two will become one flesh?’ So that they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, don’t let man tear apart.” They asked him, “Why then did Moshe command us to give her a bill of divorce, and divorce her?” He said to them, “Moshe, because of the hardness of your hearts, allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it has not been so. I tell you that whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and he who marries her when she is divorced commits adultery.” His talmidim said to him, “If this is the case of the man with his wife, it is not expedient to marry.” But he said to them, “Not all men can receive this saying, but those to whom it is given. For there are eunuchs who were born that way from their mother’s womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven's sake. He who is able to receive it, let him receive it.”

Mattityahu (Matthew) 22:23-32

On that day Tzedukim (those who say that there is no resurrection) came to him. They asked him, saying, “Teacher, Moshe said, ‘If a man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed for his brother.’ Now there were with us seven brothers. The first married and died, and having no seed left his wife to his brother. In like manner the second also, and the third, to the seventh. After them all, the woman died. In the resurrection therefore, whose wife will she be of the seven? For they all had her.” But Yeshua answered them, “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like God’s angels in heaven. But concerning the resurrection of the dead, haven’t you read that which was spoken to you by God, saying, ‘I am the God of Avraham, and the God of Yitzchak, and the God of Ya`akov?’ God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.”

Mark  12:18-27

There came to him Tzedukim, who say that there is no resurrection. They asked him, saying, “Teacher, Moshe wrote to us, ‘If a man’s brother dies, and leaves a wife behind him, and leaves no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up offspring for his brother.’ There were seven brothers. The first took a wife, and dying left no offspring. The second took her, and died, leaving no children behind him. The third likewise; and the seven took her and left no children. Last of all the woman also died. In the resurrection, when they rise, whose wife will she be of them? For the seven had her as a wife.” Yeshua answered them, “Isn’t this because you are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God? For when they will rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. But about the dead, that they are raised; haven't you read in the book of Moshe, at the Bush, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I am the God of Avraham, the G-d of Yitzchak, and the God of Ya`akov?’ He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You are therefore badly mistaken.”

Luke 20:27-38

Some of the Tzedukim came to him, those who deny that there is a resurrection. They asked him, “Teacher, Moshe wrote to us that if a man’s brother dies having a wife, and he is childless, his brother should take the wife, and raise up children for his brother. There were therefore seven brothers. The first took a wife, and died childless. The second took her as wife, and he died childless. The third took her, and likewise the seven all left no children, and died. Afterward the woman also died. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them will she be? For the seven had her as a wife.” Yeshua said to them, “The sons of this age marry, and are given in marriage. But those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage. For neither can they die any more, for they are like the angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. But that the dead are raised, even Moshe showed at the bush, when he called ADONAI ‘The God of Avraham, the God of Yitzchak, and the God of Ya`akov.’ Now he is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for all are alive to him.”

1 Corinthians 9:4-18

Have we no right to eat and to drink? Have we no right to take along a wife who is a believer, even as the rest of the apostles, and the brothers of ADONAI, and Kefa? Or have only Bar-Nabba and I no right to not work? What soldier ever serves at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard, and doesn’t eat of its fruit? Or who feeds a flock, and doesn’t drink from the flock’s milk? Do I speak these things according to the ways of men? Or doesn't the law also say the same thing? For it is written in the law of Moshe, “You shall not muzzle the ox when he treads out the grain.” Is it for the oxen that God cares, or does he say it assuredly for our sake? Yes, for our sake it was written, because he who plows ought to plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should partake of his hope. If we sowed to you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we reap your fleshly things? If others partake of this right over you, don’t we yet more? Nevertheless we did not use this right, but we bear all things, that we may cause no hindrance to the Good News of Messiah. Don’t you know that those who serve around sacred things eat from the things of the temple, and those who wait on the altar have their portion with the altar? Even so ADONAI ordained that those who proclaim the Good News should live from the Good News. But I have used none of these things, and I don’t write these things that it may be done so in my case; for I would rather die, than that anyone should make my boasting void. For if I preach the Good News, I have nothing to boast about; for necessity is laid on me; but woe is to me, if I don’t preach the Good News. For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward. But if not of my own will, I have a stewardship entrusted to me.

Galatians 3:9-14

So then, those who are of faith are blessed with the faithful Avraham. For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who doesn’t continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them.” Now that no man is justified by the law before God is evident, for, “The righteous will live by faith.” The law is not of faith, but, “The man who does them will live by them.” Messiah redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,” that the blessing of Avraham might come on the Goyim through Messiah Yeshua; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

1 Timothy 5:17-18

Let the Zakenim who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and in teaching. For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle the ox when he treads out the grain.” And, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”
