The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, `Here is a glutton
and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and "sinners."' But wisdom is
proved right by her actions."
11 When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one
draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that
smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets: 12
Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.
Lot and his two daughters left Zoar and settled in the mountains, for he
was afraid to stay in Zoar. He and his two daughters lived in a cave.
One day the older daughter said to the younger, "Our father is old, and
there is no man around here to lie with us, as is the custom all over the
Let's get our father to drink wine and then lie with him and preserve our
family line through our father."
That night they got their father to drink wine, and the older daughter
went in and lay with him. He was not aware of it when she lay down or when
she got up.
The next day the older daughter said to the younger, "Last night I lay
with my father. Let's get him to drink wine again tonight, and you go in
and lie with him so we can preserve our family line through our father."
So they got their father to drink wine that night also, and the younger
daughter went and lay with him. Again he was not aware of it when she lay
down or when she got up.
So both of Lot's daughters became pregnant by their father.
The older daughter had a son, and she named him Moab  ; he is the
father of the Moabites of today.
The younger daughter also had a son, and she named him Ben-Ammi  ; he
is the father of the Ammonites of today.
Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of
Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house.
They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them
out to us so that we can have sex with them."
Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.
Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring
them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don't do
anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my
In fact, as soon as she heard about him, a woman whose little daughter was
possessed by an evil spirit came and fell at his feet.
The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive
the demon out of her daughter.
"First let the children eat all they want," he told her, "for it is not
right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs."
10 When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the Lord thy
God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them
captive, 11 And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a
desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife; 12 Then thou
shalt bring her home to thine house; and she shall shave her head, and
pare  her nails; 13 And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from
off her, and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her
mother a full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her
husband, and she shall be thy wife. 14 And it shall be, if thou have no
delight in her, then thou shalt let her go whither she will; but thou
shalt not sell her at all for money, thou shalt not make merchandise of
her, because thou hast humbled her.
15 If a man have two wives, one beloved, and another hated, and they have
born him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the firstborn
son be hers that was hated: 16 Then it shall be, when he maketh his sons
to inherit that which he hath, that he may not make the son of the beloved
firstborn before the son of the hated, which is indeed the firstborn: 17
But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated for the firstborn, by giving
him a double portion of all that he hath: for he is the beginning of his
strength; the right of the firstborn is his.
13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, 14 And give
occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and
say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: 15
Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth
the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the
gate: 16 And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my
daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; 17 And, lo, he hath
given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a
maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they
shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. 18 And the elders of
that city shall take that man and chastise him; 19 And they shall amerce
him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the
damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel:
and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days. 20 But if
this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the
damsel: 21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her
father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that
she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in
her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.
1 He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off,
not enter into the congregation of the Lord.
2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his
tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord.
If a man commits adultery with another man's wife--with the wife of his
neighbor--both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to
