And if the latter man◦ hate her, and write her a letter of divorce, and gives it into her hand, and sends· her ·out from his house; or if the latter man◦ die, who took her to himself for a wife;
her former husband, who sent· her ·out, may not take her again* to be to him for a wife, after she is defiled; for it◦ is an abomination before Jehovah; and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which Jehovah thy God gives thee as an inheritance.

If a man◦ be··found stealing the soul of his brothers of the sons of Israel, and makes··money off him, or sells him; then that thief shall··die; and thou shalt sweep··away evil from among you.

When thou dost loan with thy companion a loan of anything, thou shalt not come into his house to get··the··pledge◦, his pledge◦.

And if the man◦ be afflicted, thou shalt not lie··down with his pledge◦;
returning thou shalt return the pledge◦ to him when the sun sets◦*, and he shall lie··down in his own raiment, and bless thee; and it shall be justice to thee before Jehovah thy God.
Thou shalt not oppress a hireling that is afflicted and needy, from thy brothers, or from thy sojourners who are in thy land within◦ thy gates;

The fathers shall not be put··to··death for the sons, neither shall the sons be put··to··death for the fathers; every man◦ shall be put··to··death for his own sin.
Thou shalt not distort◦ the judgment of the sojourner and* of the orphan; and thou shalt not take··as··a··pledge the garment of a widow;
