“Judge the people with righteous judgment” (Shoftim.i)

DEUTERONOMY
16,18 Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which JEHOVAH thy God giveth thee, tribe by tribe; and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. 16,19 Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons; neither shalt thou take a gift; for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous. 16,20 Justice, justice shalt thou follow, that thou mayest live, and inherit the land which JEHOVAH thy God giveth thee. {S}
16,21 Thou shalt not plant thee an Asherah of any kind of tree beside the altar of JEHOVAH thy God, which thou shalt make thee. 16,22 Neither shalt thou set thee up a pillar, which JEHOVAH thy God hateth. {S}
17,1 Thou shalt not sacrifice unto JEHOVAH thy God an ox, or a sheep, wherein is a blemish, even any evil thing; for that is an abomination unto JEHOVAH thy God. {S}
17,2 If there be found in the midst of thee, within any of thy gates which JEHOVAH thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that doeth that which is evil in the sight of JEHOVAH thy God, in transgressing His covenant, 17,3 and hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, or the sun, or the moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have commanded not; 17,4 and it be told thee, and thou hear it, then shalt thou inquire diligently, and, behold, if it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel; 17,5 then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, who have done this evil thing, unto thy gates, even the man or the woman; and thou shalt stone them with stones, that they die. 17,6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is to die be put to death; at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death. 17,7 The hand of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people. So thou shalt put away the evil from the midst of thee. {P}

17,8 If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, even matters of controversy within thy gates; then shalt thou arise, and get thee up unto the place which JEHOVAH thy God shall choose. 17,9 And thou shall come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days; and thou shalt inquire; and they shall declare unto thee the sentence of judgment. 17,10 And thou shalt do according to the tenor of the sentence, which they shall declare unto thee from that place which JEHOVAH shall choose; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they shall teach thee. 17,11 According to the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do; thou shalt not turn aside from the sentence which they shall declare unto thee, to the right hand, nor to the left. 17,12 And the man that doeth presumptuously, in not hearkening unto the priest that standeth to minister there before JEHOVAH thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die; and thou shalt exterminate the evil from Israel. 17,13 And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously. {S}

“And thou shalt rejoice”

DEUTERONOMY

14,22 Thou shalt surely tithe all the increase of thy seed, that which is brought forth in the field year by year. 14,23 And thou shalt eat before JEHOVAH thy God, in the place which He shall choose to cause His name to dwell there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herd and of thy flock;
that thou mayest learn to fear JEHOVAH thy God always. 14,24 And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it, because the place is too far from thee, which JEHOVAH thy God shall choose to set His name there, when JEHOVAH thy God shall bless thee; 14,25 then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thy hand, and shalt go unto the place which JEHOVAH thy God shall choose. 14,26 And thou shalt bestow the money for whatsoever thy soul desireth, for oxen, or for sheep, or
for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul asketh of thee; and thou shalt eat there before JEHOVAH thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou and thy household. 14,27 And the Levite that is within thy gates, thou shalt not forsake him; for he hath no portion nor inheritance with thee. {S}
14,28 At the end of every three years, even in the same year, thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase, and shall lay it up within thy gates. 14,29 And the Levite, because he hath no portion nor inheritance with thee, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that JEHOVAH thy God may bless thee in all the work of thy hand which thou doest. {S}

“Inquire not after their gods” said Jesus (Re’eh.iii)

DEUTERONOMY

12,29 When JEHOVAH thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest in to dispossess them, and thou dispossessest them, and dwellest in their land; 12,30 take heed to thyself that thou
be not ensnared to follow them, after that they are destroyed from before thee; and that thou
inquire not after their gods, saying: ‘How used these nations to serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.’ 12,31 Thou shalt not do so unto JEHOVAH thy God; for every abomination to JEHOVAH, which He hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters do they burn in the fire to their gods. 13,1 All this word which I command you, that shall ye observe to do; thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it. {P}

13,2 If there arise in the midst of thee a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams–and he give thee a sign or a wonder, 13,3 and the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spoke unto thee–saying: ‘Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them’; 13,4 thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or unto that dreamer of dreams; for JEHOVAH your God putteth you to proof, to know whether ye do love JEHOVAH your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 13,5 After JEHOVAH your God shall ye walk, and Him shall ye fear, and His commandments shall ye keep, and unto His voice shall ye hearken, and Him shall ye serve, and unto Him shall ye cleave. 13,6 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken perversion against JEHOVAH your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of bondage, to draw thee aside out of the way which JEHOVAH thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put away the evil from the midst of thee. {S}
13,7 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, that is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying: ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’ which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; 13,8 of the gods of the peoples that are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; 13,9 thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him; 13,10 but thou shalt surely kill him; thy hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. 13,11 And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to draw thee away from JEHOVAH thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 13,12 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is in the midst of thee. {S}
13,13 If thou shalt hear tell concerning one of thy cities, which JEHOVAH thy God giveth thee to dwell there, saying: 13,14 ‘Certain base fellows are gone out from the midst of thee, and have drawn away the inhabitants of their city, saying: Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known’; 13,15 then shalt thou inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in the midst of thee; 13,16 thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword. 13,17 And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the broad place thereof, and shall burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, unto JEHOVAH thy God; and it shall be a heap for ever; it shall not be built again. 13,18 And there shall cleave nought of the devoted thing to thy hand, that JEHOVAH may turn from the fierceness of His anger, and show thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as He hath sworn unto thy fathers; 13,19 when thou shalt hearken to the voice of JEHOVAH thy God, to keep all His commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of JEHOVAH thy God. {S}

13,13 If thou shalt hear tell concerning one of thy cities, which JEHOVAH thy God giveth thee to dwell there, saying: 13,14 ‘Certain base fellows are gone out from the midst of thee, and have drawn away the inhabitants of their city, saying: Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known’; 13,15 then shalt thou inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in the midst of thee; 13,16 thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword. 13,17 And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the broad place thereof, and shall burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, unto JEHOVAH thy God; and it shall be a heap for ever; it shall not be built again. 13,18 And there shall cleave nought of the devoted thing to thy hand, that JEHOVAH may turn from the fierceness of His anger, and show thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as He hath sworn unto thy fathers; 13,19 when thou shalt hearken to the voice of JEHOVAH thy God, to keep all His commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of JEHOVAH thy God. {S}

“That which is good and right in the eyes of JEHOVAH thy God” said Jesus (Re’eh.ii)

DEUTERONOMY

12,11 then it shall come to pass that the place which JEHOVAH your God shall choose to cause His name to dwell there, thither shall ye bring all that I command you: your burnt-offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto JEHOVAH. 12,12 And ye shall rejoice before JEHOVAH your God, ye, and your sons, and your daughters, and your men-servants, and your maid-servants, and the Levite that is within your gates, forasmuch as he hath no portion nor inheritance with you. 12,13 Take heed to thyself that thou offer not thy burnt-offerings in every place that thou seest; 12,14 but in the place which JEHOVAH shall choose in one of thy tribes, there thou shalt offer thy burnt-offerings, and there thou shalt do all that I command thee. 12,15 Notwithstanding thou mayest kill and eat flesh within all thy gates, after all the desire of thy soul, according to the blessing of JEHOVAH thy God which He hath given thee; the unclean and the clean may eat thereof, as of the gazelle, and as of the hart. 12,16 Only ye shall not eat the blood; thou shalt pour it out upon the earth as water. 12,17 Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, or of thy wine, or of thine oil, or the firstlings of thy herd or of thy flock, nor any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy freewill-offerings, nor the offering of thy hand; 12,18 but thou shalt eat them before JEHOVAH thy God in the place which JEHOVAH thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy man-servant, and thy maid-servant, and the Levite that is within thy gates; and thou shalt rejoice before JEHOVAH thy God in all that thou puttest thy hand unto. 12,19 Take heed to thyself that thou forsake not the Levite as long as thou livest upon thy land. {S}
12,20 When JEHOVAH thy God shall enlarge thy border, as He hath promised thee, and thou shalt say: ‘I will eat flesh’, because thy soul desireth to eat flesh; thou mayest eat flesh, after all the desire of thy soul. 12,21 If the place which JEHOVAH thy God shall choose to put His name there be too far from thee, then thou shalt kill of thy herd and of thy flock, which JEHOVAH hath given thee, as I have commanded thee, and thou shalt eat within thy gates, after all the desire of thy soul. 12,22 Howbeit as the gazelle and as the hart is eaten, so thou shalt eat thereof; the unclean and the clean may eat thereof alike. 12,23 Only be stedfast in not eating the blood; for the blood is the life; and thou shalt not eat the life with the flesh. 12,24 Thou shalt not eat it; thou shalt pour it out upon the earth as water. 12,25 Thou shalt not eat it; that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, when thou shalt do that which is right in the eyes of JEHOVAH. 12,26 Only thy holy things which thou hast, and thy vows, thou shalt take, and go unto the place which JEHOVAH shall choose; 12,27 and thou shalt offer thy burnt-offerings, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar of JEHOVAH thy God; and the blood of thy sacrifices shall be poured out against the altar of JEHOVAH thy God, and thou shalt eat the flesh. 12,28 Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for ever, when thou doest
that which is good and right in the eyes of JEHOVAH thy God. {S}

“He giveth you rest from all your enemies”

DEUTERONOMY
11,26 Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse: 11,27 the blessing, if ye shall hearken unto the commandments of JEHOVAH your God, which I command you this day; 11,28 and the curse, if ye shall not hearken unto the commandments of JEHOVAH your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known. {S} 11,29 And it shall come to pass, when JEHOVAH thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, that thou shalt set the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal. 11,30 Are they not beyond the Jordan, behind the way of the going down of the sun, in the land of the Canaanites that dwell in the Arabah, over against Gilgal, beside the terebinths of Moreh? 11,31 For ye are to pass over the Jordan to go in to possess the land which JEHOVAH your God giveth you, and ye shall possess it, and dwell therein. 11,32 And ye shall observe to do all the statutes and the ordinances which I set before you this day. 12,1 These are the statutes and the ordinances, which ye shall observe to do in the land which JEHOVAH, the God of thy fathers, hath given thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth. 12,2 Ye shall surely destroy all the places, wherein the nations that ye are to dispossess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every leafy tree. 12,3 And ye shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars, and burn their Asherim with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods; and ye shall destroy their name out of that place. 12,4 Ye shall not do so unto JEHOVAH your God. 12,5 But unto the place which JEHOVAH your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put His name there, even unto His habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come; 12,6 and thither ye shall bring your burnt-offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and the offering of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill-offerings, and the firstlings of your herd and of your flock; 12,7 and there ye shall eat before JEHOVAH your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein JEHOVAH thy God hath blessed thee. 12,8 Ye shall not do after all that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes; 12,9 for ye are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which JEHOVAH your God giveth thee. 12,10 But when ye go over the Jordan, and dwell in the land which JEHOVAH your God causeth you to inherit, and He giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety;

The Ten Words

DEUTERONOMY

10,1 At that time JEHOVAH said unto me: ‘Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first, and come up unto Me into the mount; and make thee an ark of wood. 10,2 And I will write on the tables the words that were on the first tables which thou didst break, and thou shalt put them in the ark.’ 10,3 So I made an ark of acacia-wood, and hewed two tables of stone like unto the first, and went up into the mount, having the two tables in my hand. 10,4 And He wrote on the tables according to the first writing, the ten words, which JEHOVAH spoke unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly; and JEHOVAH gave them unto me. 10,5 And I turned and came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they are, as JEHOVAH commanded me.–

10,6 And the children of Israel journeyed from Beeroth-benejaakan to Moserah; there Aaron died, and there he was buried; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest’s office in his stead. 10,7 From thence they journeyed unto Gudgod; and from Gudgod to Jotbah, a land of brooks of water.–

10,8 At that time JEHOVAH separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of JEHOVAH, to stand before JEHOVAH to minister unto Him, and to bless in His name, unto this day. 10,9 Wherefore Levi hath no portion nor inheritance with his brethren; JEHOVAH is his inheritance, according as JEHOVAH thy God spoke unto him.– 10,10 Now I stayed in the mount, as at the first time, forty days and forty nights; and JEHOVAH hearkened unto me that time also; JEHOVAH would not destroy thee. 10,11 And JEHOVAH said unto me: ‘Arise, go before the people, causing them to set forward, that they may go in and possess the land, which I swore unto their fathers to give unto them.’ {P}
