← Deuteronomy 22   Deuteronomy 24 →         

1 2 He who is wounded by crushing, or has his testes cut·​·off, shall not come into the assembly of Jehovah.

2 3 A bastard shall not come into the assembly of Jehovah; even to his tenth generation shall he not come into the assembly of Jehovah.

3 4 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not come into the assembly of Jehovah; even to their tenth generation shall they not come into the assembly of Jehovah even·​·to eternity;

4 5 on account of the matter that they came· not ·before you with bread and with water in the way, when you came·​·out from Egypt; and that they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Aram-naharaim, to curse thee.

5 6 But Jehovah thy God was· not ·willing to hearken to Balaam; and Jehovah thy God turned the curse to a blessing for thee, for Jehovah thy God loved thee.

6 7 Thou shalt not inquire after their peace nor their goodness all thy days to eternity.

7 8 Thou shalt not abominate an Edomite; for he is thy brother; thou shalt not abominate an Egyptian; because thou wast a sojourner in his land.

8 9 The sons that are begotten of them shall come into the assembly of Jehovah in their third generation.

9 10 When the camp goes forth against thine enemies, then keep thee from every evil thing.

10 11 When there be among thee a man, who is not clean from what befalls him at night, then shall he go·​·forth outside the camp, he shall not come to the midst of the camp;

11 12 but it shall be, when it turns evening, he shall bathe himself with water; and when the sun sets, he shall come to the midst of the camp.

12 13 And a space shall be for thee outside the camp, and thither thou shalt go·​·forth outside.

13 14 And thou shalt have a peg upon thyself; and it shall be, when thou sittest outside, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn·​·back and cover what comes from thee.

14 15 For Jehovah thy God walks in the midst of thy camp, to rescue thee, and to give over thine enemies before thee; that thy camp may be holy, and that He not see in thee the nakedness of any thing, and turn·​·back from after thee.

15 16 Thou shalt not close·​·in for his lord a servant who has rescued himself to thee from being with his lord;

16 17 but he shall dwell with thee, in among thee, in a place which he shall choose in one of thy gates, in a good place to him; thou shalt not afflict him.

17 18 There shall not be a prostitute from the daughters of Israel, and there shall not be a sodomite of the sons of Israel.

18 19 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a harlot, and the price of a dog, into the house of Jehovah thy God for any vow; for even both of them are an abomination to Jehovah thy God.

19 20 Thou shalt not impose·​·usury of thy brother; usury of silver, usury of food, usury of any thing that is imposed·​·as·​·usury;

20 21 to a foreigner thou mayest impose·​·usury; but to thy brother thou shalt not impose·​·usury; so·​·that Jehovah thy God may bless thee in all that thou puttest·​·forth thy hand to do in the land whither thou goest·​·in to possess it.

21 22 When thou shalt vow a vow to Jehovah thy God, thou shalt not delay to pay it; for Jehovah thy God requiring will require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee.

22 23 But when thou shalt forbear to vow, it shall not be a sin in thee.

23 24 That which goes·​·out of thy lips thou shalt keep and do; as thou hast vowed to Jehovah thy God, it is a freewill offering which thou hast spoken with thy mouth.

24 25 For thou may come into the vineyard of thy companion, and eat grapes as thy soul is satisfied; but thou shalt not put any into thy vessel.

25 26 When thou comest into the standing·​·grain of thy companion, then thou mayest crop·​·off the ears with thy hand; but thou shalt not wave a scythe to the standing·​·grain of thy companion.

Explanation of Deuteronomy 23      

Napsal(a) Alexander Payne

Verse 1. Those who reject faith and charity cannot enter into heaven.

Verse 2. Nor those whose good conduct is not from religion but from a spurious origin.

Verses 3-6. Nor those principles which falsify truths and adulterate goods, for they do not supply the soul with true sustenance, and also endeavour to oppose what is truly spiritual.

Verses 7-8. But external religion agreeing with internal (or with a life of usefulness for a good end) is not to be shunned.

Verse 9. In temptations it is especially essential to avoid everything known to be evil.

Verses 10-14. The soul is remitted into external states to be purified from evils, otherwise the influences from heaven would be rejected from the soul.

Verses 15-16. The rational faculty is not to be enslaved by spiritual truths.

Verses 17-18. No love of perverting truth, or falsity which denies the Lord and the necessity of a good life, shall be permitted to exist in the regenerate soul; nor are knowledges acquired for evil ends or for vanity acceptable to heaven.

Verses 19-20. The spiritual must not do good for the sake of reward as an end.

Verses 21-23. Things resolved upon as being right, must be acted upon.

Verses 24-25. Good and truth derived from others may be adjoined to the soul, but must not be mixed with the good developed therein by the Lord in regeneration.
