Moses speaks to Israel: you must not hide away livestock or other property which your brother has lost. Transvestism not allowed. If the young of a nest are taken, the mother is not also to be taken. Rooves needs parapets. Four laws of separation: no sowing your vineyard with different kinds of seeds, no plowing with a donkey and an ox together, no wearing clothes of different materials, corners of clothing must have tassels on them (to distinguish from other peoples). In cases where a new wife is suspected of not being a virgin, the marital cloth would be presented to the elders, and be inspected for blood. If it is found she is a virgin, the man must marry her and may not divorce her; if she is not a virgin, she will be stoned to death. Both the man and the woman in an adulterous relationship will be condemned to death. If a man rapes a betrothed woman, he shall be stoned to death. The woman herself suffers no penalty. If a man rapes a woman who is not betrothed, he must pay money to the woman’s family, and marry her. A man shall not take his father’s wife.
Moses speaks to Israel: eunuchs are excluded from the congregation of Israel, and the illegitimate, down to the tenth generation, are excluded from the assembly (civil leadership). Ammonites and Moabites are to be excluded from the assembly, but Edomites (who are you brothers) and Egyptians are not. A man in a military camp who has a nocturnal emission must leave the camp and cleanse himself. Soldiers must carry shovels to bury their refuse. Israelites will provide asylum for foreign escaped slaves. Ritual prostitution disallowed; no bringing the wages of a harlot as an offering. Only foreigners must be charged interest on loans. Vows must be kept – it is not a sin not to make a vow.
