Rules, Rules, & More Rules! Deuteronomy 24 If a man marries a woman who becomes displeasing to him because he finds something indecent about her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, Deuteronomy 24:1 …and if after she leaves his house she becomes the wife of another man, and her second husband dislikes her and writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, or if he dies… Deuteronomy 24:2-3 …then her first husband, who divorced her, is not allowed to marry her again after she has been defiled. That would be detestable in the eyes of the Lord. Do not bring sin upon the land the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance. Deuteronomy 24:4 If a man has recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him. For one year he is to be free to stay at home and bring happiness to the wife he has married. Deuteronomy 24:5 Do not take a pair of millstones—not even the upper one—as security for a debt, because that would be taking a person’s livelihood as security. Deuteronomy 24:6 If someone is caught kidnapping a fellow Israelite and treating or selling them as a slave, the kidnapper must die. You must purge the evil from among you. Deuteronomy 24:7 In cases of defiling skin diseases, be very careful to do exactly as the Levitical priests instruct you. You must follow carefully what I have commanded them. Remember what the Lord your God did to Miriam along the way after you came out of Egypt. Deuteronomy 24:8-9 When you make a loan of any kind to your neighbor, do not go into their house to get what is offered to you as a pledge. Stay outside and let the neighbor to whom you are making the loan bring the pledge out to you. Deuteronomy 24:10-11 If the neighbor is poor, do not go to sleep with their pledge in your possession. Return their cloak by sunset so that your neighbor may sleep in it. Then they will thank you, and it will be regarded as a righteous act in the sight of the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 24:12-13 Do not take advantage of a hired worker who is poor and needy, whether that worker is a fellow Israelite or a foreigner residing in one of your towns. Pay them their wages each day before sunset, because they are poor and are counting on it. Otherwise they may cry to the Lord against you, and you will be guilty of sin. Deuteronomy 24:14-15 Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin. Deuteronomy 24:16 Do not deprive the foreigner or the fatherless of justice, or take the cloak of the widow as a pledge. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and the Lord your God redeemed you from there. That is why I command you to do this. Deuteronomy 24:17-18 When you are harvesting in your field and you overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow, so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. Deuteronomy 24:19 When you beat the olives from your trees, do not go over the branches a second time. Leave what remains for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow. When you harvest the grapes in your vineyard, do not go over the vines again. Leave what remains for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow. Deuteronomy 24:20-21 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt. That is why I command you to do this. Deuteronomy 24:22 Women (1-4) Soldiers (5) Those in Debt (6) Slaves (7) Unclean (8-9) Borrowers (10-11) The Poor (12-15) Parents/Children (16) Foreigners (17-20) Orphans (17-20) Widows (17-20) • Some things in the Bible are really clear and spoken about a LOT. Those are things that you can shout about! • Some things, the Bible doesn’t talk about much. Those things, maybe you should speak in more of a whisper! Dr. Jeff Weima …writes her a certificate of divorce and sends her from his house… then her first husband, who divorced her, is not allowed to marry her again. Deuteronomy 24:1 & 4 Soldiers (verse 5) Those in Debt (verse 6) Slaves (verse 7) You must purge that evil from among you. Unclean (verses 8-9 ) Borrowers & the Poor (verses 10-15) Employment legislation is also divine Torah. Workers’ rights are responsibilities before God. Unjust pay and conditions are not just social problems, they are sin against God. Dr. Christopher Wright Parents & Children (verse 16) Foreigners Widows Orphans (verses 17-20) Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees Isaiah 10:1 For I know how many are your offenses and how great your sins. There are those who oppress the innocent and take bribe and deprive the poor of justice in the courts. Amos 5:12 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt. That is why I command you to do this. Deuteronomy 24:18 Women (1-4) Soldiers (5) Those in Debt (6) Slaves (7) Unclean (8-9) Borrowers (10-11) The Poor (12-15) Parents/Children (16) Foreigners (17-20) Orphans (17-20) Widows (17-20)
