Deuteronomy 20:1-4 When you go out to battle against your enemies and see horses and chariots and a people more than you, be not afraid of them, for the LORD your God is with you, which brought you up out of the land of Egypt. And it shall be, when you are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people and shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, you approach this day unto battle against your enemies. Let not your hearts faint, fear not and do not tremble, neither be you terrified because of them, for the LORD your God is he that goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.

Deuteronomy 20:10,11 When you come near unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it. And it shall be, if it makes you an answer of peace and opens unto you, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto you and they shall serve you.

Deuteronomy 20:12 And if it will make no peace with you, but will make war against you, then besiege it.

Deuteronomy 20:13,14 And when the LORD thy God has delivered it into thine hands, smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword. But the women and the little ones and the cattle and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, take unto yourselves and you shall eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God has given you..(this was the normal instruction, but with the Midianites it was a much harsher story:.Numbers 31:16-31)

Deuteronomy 20:15-20 Thus shall you do unto all the cities which are very far off from you, which are not of the cities of these nations. But of the cities of these people, which the LORD your God does give you for an inheritance, you shall save alive nothing that breath. But you shall utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites and the Amorites, the Canaanites and the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God has commanded you. That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should you sin against the LORD your God. When you shall besiege a city a long time, in making war against it to take it, you shall not destroy the trees thereof by forcing an axe against them, for you may eat of them and you shall not cut them down, for the tree of the field is man's life, to employ them in the siege. Only the trees which you know that they be not trees for meat.(food), you shall destroy and cut them down and you shall build bulwarks against the city that makes war with you, until it be subdued.

Deuteronomy 21:1-9 If one be found slain in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it, lying in the field and it be not known who hath slain him. Then thy elders and thy judges shall come forth, and they shall measure unto the cities which are round about him that is slain. And it shall be, that the city which is next unto the slain man, even the elders of that city shall take an heifer, which hath not been wrought with and which hath not drawn in the yoke. And the elders of that city shall bring down the heifer unto a rough valley, which is neither eared nor sown and shall strike off the heifer's neck there in the valley. And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near, for them the LORD thy God hath chosen to minister unto him and to bless in the name of the LORD and by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be tried and all the elders of that city, that are next unto the slain man, shall wash their hands over the heifer that is beheaded in the valley. And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this blood, neither have our eyes seen it. Be merciful, O LORD, unto thy people Israel, whom thou hast redeemed and lay not innocent blood unto thy people of Israel's charge. And the blood shall be forgiven them. So shalt thou put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the LORD.

Deuteronomy 21:18-22 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother and that, when they have chastened him will not hearken unto them; Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him and bring him out unto the elders of his city and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice. He is a glutton and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die. So shalt thou put evil away from among you and all Israel shall hear and fear. And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death and he be to be put to death and thou hang him on a tree.

Deuteronomy 21:23 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day, for he that is hanged is accursed of God, that your land be not defiled, which the LORD thy God gives you for an inheritance.

Deuteronomy 22:1,2 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ox or his sheep go astray and hide yourself from them. You shall in any case bring them again unto your brother. And if your brother be not near unto thee or if you know him not.(not know where he may have gone), then you shalt bring it unto your own house and it shall be with you until your brother seeks after it and you shall restore it to him again.

Deuteronomy 22:3 In like manner shall you do with his ass.(donkey).and so shall you do with his raiment and with all lost thing of your brother's, which he has lost and you have found, shall you do likewise. You may not hide yourself from this.

Deuteronomy 22:4 You shall not see your brother's ass.(donkey).or his ox fall down by the way and hide yourself from them/ You shall surely help him to lift them up again.

Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment, for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD your God. 

Deuteronomy 22:6,7 If a bird's nest chance to be before you in the way in any tree or on the ground, whether they be young ones or eggs and the dam sitting upon the young or upon the eggs, you shall not take the dam with the young, but you shall in any wise let the dam go and take the young to you, that it may be well with you and that you may prolong your days.

Deuteronomy 22:8 When you build a new house, then you shall make a battlement.(a railing).for your roof, that you bring not blood upon your house if any man fall from there.

Deuteronomy 23:5 Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam, but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the LORD thy God loved thee.

Deuteronomy 23:9 When the host goes forth against your enemies, then keep yourself from every wicked thing.

Deuteronomy 23:12,13 You shall have a place also without the camp, whither you shall go forth abroad and you shall have a paddle upon your weapon and it shall be, when you will ease yourself abroad you shall dig therewith and shall turn back and cover that which comes from you.

Deuteronomy 23:15,16 You shall not deliver unto his master the servant which is escaped from his master unto you. He shall dwell with you, even among you, in that place which he shall choose in one of thy gates, where it likes him best. You shall not oppress him.

Deuteronomy 23:17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.

Deuteronomy 23:18 You shall not bring the hire of a whore or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD your God for any vow. For even both these are abomination unto the LORD your God.

Comprised with.Clarke's Commentary:.The hire of a whore or the price of a dog (verse 17, a sodomite). Many public prostitutes dedicated to their gods a part of their impure earnings and some of these prostitutes were publicly kept in the temple of Venus Melytta, whose gains were applied to the support of her worship, similar to a pimp today managing prostitutes who hand him or her money from clients having paid them for sex.

Deuteronomy 23:24,25 When you come into your neighbour's vineyard, then you may eat grapes your fill at your own pleasure, but you shall not put any in your vessel.(eat them there but don't load yourself up with them to take with you). When you come into the standing corn of your neighbour, then you may pluck the ears with your hand, but you shall not move a sickle unto your neighbour's standing corn.

Deuteronomy 24:1 When a man has taken a wife and married her and it come to pass that she find no favor in his eyes, because he has found some uncleanness.(original 'nakedness', uncovered herself somewhat to another or perhaps was flirtatious in her expression around another).in her. Then let him write her a bill of divorcement and give it in her hand and send her out of his house.

Deuteronomy 24:2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.

Deuteronomy 24:3,4 And if the latter husband hate her and write her a bill of divorcement and gives it in her hand and sends her out of his house or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife, her former husband which sent her away may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled.(original word means 'sexually unclean', that is, her original husband should regard the situation as now unclean and not again get involved with her, although she would be free to go to some other man; this prevented the unkind first husband from taking her again to him where she might be used, abused and later once more be rejected; other things people back then did that were considered sexually unclean:.Leviticus 18:6-24), for that is abomination before the LORD and you shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD your God gives you for an inheritance.

Deuteronomy 24:5 When a man has taken a new wife.(original 'woman'), he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business, but he shall be free at home one year and shall cheer up his wife which he has taken.

Deuteronomy 24:6 No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge.(the lower heavier millstone or the lighter one wasn't to be loaned out, as they were used daily in grinding grains for food; 'loan me your grinder, I'll bring it back later today'; yeah sure, ever loaned out a book to someone or perhaps some money?), for he takes a man's life to pledge.

Comprised with Clarke's Commentary:."Small hand-mills which can be worked by a single person to prepare the day’s meal which was generally ground for each day, they keeping no stock beforehand; hence they were forbidden to take either of the stones {the main upper one which first ground the grains into larger pieces and the smaller one used for making flour} to pledge, because in such a case the family must be without bread."

Deuteronomy 24:7-9 If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel and makes merchandise of him.(take a rental fee).or sells him, then that thief shall die and you shall put evil away from among you. Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that you observe diligently and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall teach you. As I commanded them so you shall observe to do. Remember what the LORD your God did unto Miriam by the way, after that you were come forth out of Egypt. 

Deuteronomy 24:10-13 When you do lend your brother anything, you shall not go into his house to fetch his pledge.(the creditor must not intrude upon the debtor's house for for what the debtor has pledged to retuen). You shall stand abroad and the man to whom you did lend shall bring out the pledge abroad unto you. And if the man be poor, you shall not sleep with his pledge.(keep it overnight;.JFB Commentary:."in the case of a poor man who had pledged his cloak, it was to be restored before night, as the poor in Eastern countries have commonly no other covering for wrapping themselves in when they go to sleep than the garment they have worn during the day"). In any case you shall deliver him the pledge again when the sun goes down, that he may sleep in his own raiment and bless you.(have good thoughts toward you).and it shall be righteousness unto you before the LORD your God..(Matthew Henry's Commentary:."this teaches us to consult the comfort and subsistence of others, as much as our own")

Deuteronomy 24:14 You shall not oppress.(original 'defraud', 'wrong', 'deceitfully get from').an hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he be of your brethren or of the strangers that are in your land within your gates..(more on the poor amongst you:.John 12:8)

Deuteronomy 24:15 At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it, for he is poor and sets his heart upon it, lest he cry against you unto the LORD and it be sin unto you.

Deuteronomy 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers. Every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

Deuteronomy 24:17,18 You shall not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the fatherless, nor take a widow's raiment to pledge, but you shall remember that you were a bondman in Egypt and the LORD your God redeemed you thence, therefore I command you to do this thing.

Deuteronomy 24:19 When you cut down your harvest in your field and have forgot a sheaf in the field, you shall not go again to fetch it. It shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless and for the widow. That the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands..(be generous to others; don't be a cheapo)

Deuteronomy 24:20,21 When you beat your olive tree, you shall not go over the boughs again. It shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless and for the widow. When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not glean it afterward. It shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless and for the widow.

Deuteronomy 25:3 Forty stripes he may give him and not exceed, lest if he should exceed and beat him above these with many stripes, then your brother should seem vile unto you.

Deuteronomy 25:17 Remember what Amalek did unto you by the way, when you were come forth out of Egypt;

Deuteronomy 25:18 How he met thee by the way and smote the hindmost of you, even all that were feeble behind you, when you were faint and weary and he feared not God.

Deuteronomy 25:19 Therefore it shall be, when the LORD your God has given you rest from all your enemies round about, in the land which the LORD your God gives you for an inheritance to possess it, that you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; you shalt not forget it..(how different it became in the New Testament:.Luke 9:55,56)

Deuteronomy 26:5 And you shall speak and say before the LORD your God, A Syrian ready to perish was my father and he went down into Egypt and sojourned there with a few and became there a nation, great, mighty and populous.

Deuteronomy 26:6-11 And the Egyptians evil entreated us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage. And when we cried unto the LORD God of our fathers, the LORD heard our voice and looked on our affliction and our labour and our oppression. And the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand and with an outstretched arm and with great terribleness and with signs and with wonders. And he has brought us into this place and has given us this land, even a land that flows with milk and honey. And now, behold, I have brought the firstfruits of the land, which you, O LORD, have given me. And you shalt set it before the LORD your God and worship before the LORD your God. And you shall rejoice in every good thing which the LORD your God has given unto you and unto your house, you and the Levite and the stranger that is among you.

Deuteronomy 26:12 When you have made an end of tithing all the tithes of your increase the third year, which is the year of tithing and have given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates and be filled;

Deuteronomy 26:13-15 Then you shall say before the LORD your God, I have brought away the hallowed things out of mine house and also have given them unto the Levite and unto the stranger, to the fatherless and to the widow, according to all your commandments which you have commanded me. I have not transgressed your commandments, neither have I forgotten them. I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken away ought thereof for any unclean use, nor given ought thereof for the dead. But I have hearkened to the voice of the LORD my God and have done according to all that you have commanded me. Look down from your holy habitation from heaven and bless your people Israel and the land which you have given us, as you sware unto our fathers, a land that flows with milk and honey.

Deuteronomy 26:16,17 This day the LORD your God has commanded you to do these statutes and judgments. You shall therefore keep and do them with all your heart and with all your soul. You have avouched the LORD this day to be your God and to walk in his ways and to keep his statutes and his commandments and his judgments and to hearken unto his voice. 

Deuteronomy 26:18,19 And the LORD has avouched you this day to be his peculiar people, as he has promised you and that you should keep all his commandments.(how does it apply today for us?.Hebrews 3:7-15 and what are the encouragements/instructions or commandments for today?); And to make you high above all nations which he has made, in praise and in name and in honour and that you may be an holy people unto the LORD your God, as he has spoken.

Deuteronomy 27:1-3 And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people, saying, Keep all the commandments which I command you this day. And it shall be on the day when you shall pass over Jordan unto the land which the LORD thy God gives thee, that you shall set up great stones and plaster them with plaster. And you shall write upon them all the words of this law, when you arr passed over, that you may go in unto the land which the LORD your God gives you, a land that flows with milk and honey.(Numbers 13:25-27).as the LORD God of your fathers has promised you.

Deuteronomy 27:14-17 And the Levites shall speak and say unto all the men of Israel with a loud voice, Cursed be the man that makes any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman and puts it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen. Cursed be he that dishonors his father or his mother. And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he that removes his neighbour's landmark.(moves the mark of his land so as to enlarge it for his gain and to the detriment of his neighbor). And all the people shall say, Amen.

And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he that lies with his sister, the daughter of his father or the daughter of his mother. And all the people shall say, Amen. Cursed be he that lies with his mother in law. And all the people shall say, Amen. 

Deuteronomy 27:24 Cursed be he that smites his neighbour secretly.(from a hiding place; a hurt not knowing from where or from who it came). And all the people shall say, Amen. 

Deuteronomy 27:25 Cursed be he that take reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen.
