1  No man shall marry his father’s former wife, so as to remove his father’s garment.

א  לֹא־יִקַּח אִישׁ אֶת־אֵשֶׁת אָבִיו וְלֹא יְגַלֶּה כְּנַף אָבִיו׃

2  No one whose testes are crushed or whose member is cut off shall be admitted into the congregation of Hashem.

ב  לֹא־יָבֹא פְצוּעַ־דַּכָּא וּכְרוּת שָׁפְכָה בִּקְהַל יְהֹוָה׃

3  No one misbegotten shall be admitted into the congregation of Hashem; none of his descendants, even in the tenth generation, shall be admitted into the congregation of Hashem.

ג  לֹא־יָבֹא מַמְזֵר בִּקְהַל יְהֹוָה גַּם דּוֹר עֲשִׂירִי לֹא־יָבֹא לוֹ בִּקְהַל יְהֹוָה׃

4  No Amonite or Moabite shall be admitted into the congregation of Hashem; none of their descendants, even in the tenth generation, shall ever be admitted into the congregation of Hashem,

ד  לֹא־יָבֹא עַמּוֹנִי וּמוֹאָבִי בִּקְהַל יְהֹוָה גַּם דּוֹר עֲשִׂירִי לֹא־יָבֹא לָהֶם בִּקְהַל יְהֹוָה עַד־עוֹלָם׃

5  because they did not meet you with food and water on your journey after you left Egypt, and because they hired Balaam son of Beor, from Pethor of Aram-Naharaim, to curse you.

ה  עַל־דְּבַר אֲשֶׁר לֹא־קִדְּמוּ אֶתְכֶם בַּלֶּחֶם וּבַמַּיִם בַּדֶּרֶךְ בְּצֵאתְכֶם מִמִּצְרָיִם וַאֲשֶׁר שָׂכַר עָלֶיךָ אֶת־בִּלְעָם בֶּן־בְּעוֹר מִפְּתוֹר אֲרַם נַהֲרַיִם לְקַלְלֶךָּ׃

6  But Hashem your God refused to heed Balaam; instead, Hashem your God turned the curse into a blessing for you, for Hashem your God loves you.

ו  וְלֹא־אָבָה יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ לִשְׁמֹעַ אֶל־בִּלְעָם וַיַּהֲפֹךְ יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ לְּךָ אֶת־הַקְּלָלָה לִבְרָכָה כִּי אֲהֵבְךָ יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ׃

7  You shall never concern yourself with their welfare or benefit as long as you live.

ז  לֹא־תִדְרֹשׁ שְׁלֹמָם וְטֹבָתָם כָּל־יָמֶיךָ לְעוֹלָם׃

8  You shall not abhor an Edomite, for he is your kinsman. You shall not abhor an Egyptian, for you were a stranger in his land.

ח  לֹא־תְתַעֵב אֲדֹמִי כִּי אָחִיךָ הוּא לֹא־תְתַעֵב מִצְרִי כִּי־גֵר הָיִיתָ בְאַרְצוֹ׃

9  Children born to them may be admitted into the congregation of Hashem in the third generation.

ט  בָּנִים אֲשֶׁר־יִוָּלְדוּ לָהֶם דּוֹר שְׁלִישִׁי יָבֹא לָהֶם בִּקְהַל יְהֹוָה׃

10  When you go out as a troop against your enemies, be on your guard against anything untoward.

י  כִּי־תֵצֵא מַחֲנֶה עַל־אֹיְבֶיךָ וְנִשְׁמַרְתָּ מִכֹּל דָּבָר רָע׃

11  If anyone among you has been rendered unclean by a nocturnal emission, he must leave the camp, and he must not reenter the camp.

יא  כִּי־יִהְיֶה בְךָ אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר לֹא־יִהְיֶה טָהוֹר מִקְּרֵה־לָיְלָה וְיָצָא אֶל־מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה לֹא יָבֹא אֶל־תּוֹךְ הַמַּחֲנֶה׃

12  Toward evening he shall bathe in water, and at sundown he may reenter the camp.

יב  וְהָיָה לִפְנוֹת־עֶרֶב יִרְחַץ בַּמָּיִם וּכְבֹא הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ יָבֹא אֶל־תּוֹךְ הַמַּחֲנֶה׃

13  Further, there shall be an area for you outside the camp, where you may relieve yourself.

יג  וְיָד תִּהְיֶה לְךָ מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה וְיָצָאתָ שָׁמָּה חוּץ׃

14  With your gear you shall have a spike, and when you have squatted you shall dig a hole with it and cover up your excrement.

יד  וְיָתֵד תִּהְיֶה לְךָ עַל־אֲזֵנֶךָ וְהָיָה בְּשִׁבְתְּךָ חוּץ וְחָפַרְתָּה בָהּ וְשַׁבְתָּ וְכִסִּיתָ אֶת־צֵאָתֶךָ׃

15  Since Hashem your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you, let your camp be holy; let Him not find anything unseemly among you and turn away from you.

טו  כִּי יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ מִתְהַלֵּךְ בְּקֶרֶב מַחֲנֶךָ לְהַצִּילְךָ וְלָתֵת אֹיְבֶיךָ לְפָנֶיךָ וְהָיָה מַחֲנֶיךָ קָדוֹשׁ וְלֹא־יִרְאֶה בְךָ עֶרְוַת דָּבָר וְשָׁב מֵאַחֲרֶיךָ׃

16  You shall not turn over to his master a slave who seeks refuge with you from his master.

טז  לֹא־תַסְגִּיר עֶבֶד אֶל־אֲדֹנָיו אֲשֶׁר־יִנָּצֵל אֵלֶיךָ מֵעִם אֲדֹנָיו׃

17  He shall live with you in any place he may choose among the settlements in your midst, wherever he pleases; you must not ill-treat him.

יז  עִמְּךָ יֵשֵׁב בְּקִרְבְּךָ בַּמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר־יִבְחַר בְּאַחַד שְׁעָרֶיךָ בַּטּוֹב לוֹ לֹא תּוֹנֶנּוּ׃

18  No Israelite woman shall be a cult prostitute, nor shall any Israelite man be a cult prostitute.

יח  לֹא־תִהְיֶה קְדֵשָׁה מִבְּנוֹת יִשְׂרָאֵל וְלֹא־יִהְיֶה קָדֵשׁ מִבְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל׃

19  You shall not bring the fee of a whore or the pay of a dog into the house of Hashem your God in fulfillment of any vow, for both are abhorrent to Hashem your God.

יט  לֹא־תָבִיא אֶתְנַן זוֹנָה וּמְחִיר כֶּלֶב בֵּית יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ לְכָל־נֶדֶר כִּי תוֹעֲבַת יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ גַּם־שְׁנֵיהֶם׃

20  You shall not deduct interest from loans to your countrymen, whether in money or food or anything else that can be deducted as interest;

כ  לֹא־תַשִּׁיךְ לְאָחִיךָ נֶשֶׁךְ כֶּסֶף נֶשֶׁךְ אֹכֶל נֶשֶׁךְ כָּל־דָּבָר אֲשֶׁר יִשָּׁךְ׃

21  but you may deduct interest from loans to foreigners. Do not deduct interest from loans to your countrymen, so that Hashem your God may bless you in all your undertakings in the land that you are about to enter and possess.

כא  לַנָּכְרִי תַשִּׁיךְ וּלְאָחִיךָ לֹא תַשִּׁיךְ לְמַעַן יְבָרֶכְךָ יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ בְּכֹל מִשְׁלַח יָדֶךָ עַל־הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר־אַתָּה בָא־שָׁמָּה לְרִשְׁתָּהּ׃

22  When you make a vow to Hashem your God, do not put off fulfilling it, for Hashem your God will require it of you, and you will have incurred guilt;

כב  כִּי־תִדֹּר נֶדֶר לַיהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ לֹא תְאַחֵר לְשַׁלְּמוֹ כִּי־דָּרֹשׁ יִדְרְשֶׁנּוּ יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ מֵעִמָּךְ וְהָיָה בְךָ חֵטְא׃

23  whereas you incur no guilt if you refrain from vowing.

כג  וְכִי תֶחְדַּל לִנְדֹּר לֹא־יִהְיֶה בְךָ חֵטְא׃

24  You must fulfill what has crossed your lips and perform what you have voluntarily vowed to Hashem your God, having made the promise with your own mouth.

כד  מוֹצָא שְׂפָתֶיךָ תִּשְׁמֹר וְעָשִׂיתָ כַּאֲשֶׁר נָדַרְתָּ לַיהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ נְדָבָה אֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתָּ בְּפִיךָ׃

25  When you enter another man’s vineyard, you may eat as many grapes as you want, until you are full, but you must not put any in your vessel.

כה  כִּי תָבֹא בְּכֶרֶם רֵעֶךָ וְאָכַלְתָּ עֲנָבִים כְּנַפְשְׁךָ שָׂבְעֶךָ וְאֶל־כֶּלְיְךָ לֹא תִתֵּן׃

26  When you enter another man’s field of standing grain, you may pluck ears with your hand; but you must not put a sickle to your neighbor’s grain.

כו  כִּי תָבֹא בְּקָמַת רֵעֶךָ וְקָטַפְתָּ מְלִילֹת בְּיָדֶךָ וְחֶרְמֵשׁ לֹא תָנִיף עַל קָמַת רֵעֶךָ׃

    [School BC History Textbook=DECREASE SINS]
    [Unpublished Book's 2nd Last Page]

    Organization Entitled: “FIGHTERS OF FAITH”
    1) Edit OLD TESTAMENT into a Historic Textbook. (Edit Examples): ‘Pillar of Fire’=Volcano. ‘Red Sea’=Sea of Reeds. (Need Torah Data) ALSO: when God speaks write “There was a rumor”
    2) Explain Parables & Elementary textbooks have less violence
    3) I’m Not Anti-Christ, but when youth HEAR; “He forgives sins” kids think there’s “Nothing wrong to sin” is why lots of New Testament isn’t in Textbook.
    4) Teachers ordering, “Don’t read New Testament!” motivates kids to read (For (Christians to agree)
    5) Since BC Hebrew vocabulary was short, Words need to be replaced.
    (Example) ‘Love your enemy’=‘Care for your enemy’ Many times ‘Love’ is misused.
    6) Classroom Titles: Elementary “Hebrew Mythology” Middle & High School titles are “B.C. History” teens aren’t told B.C.=Behavior Control by learning God’s Justice & hearing 10 Commandments more often.
    7) Add Scriptures Romans kept out because committing the sins too often.
    8) Find what was banished in 5th century by Byzantine Emperor Justinian I, to keep power over suffering people. Reveal all other Laws removed

    BILLIONS SOLD$ Even to curious Adults Buy. High Israeli income.
    [Example] Giants, UFOs, Witches, Werewolves, Deep Sea Animals, Exorcists, Vampires, Possessed by Demons=Sinners (or Spirits=Talents)
    “Faith gets you Reborn” isn’t slang for happiness (many post-atheist ashamed realizing God exists) POSSESSING is a BLESSING but can be DEPRESSING
    [Example] Holocaust=4 generations Jewish Wisdom: Most Inventions on Earth

    My Penname is to be "Jonah Whale"
    Jonah Experience: 1) I once tried committing suicide, Swimming in pool no lifeguard until Seizure.
    2) With no lifeguard: God saved me swimming & having a seizure 2 times in Sea and another in a pool. (Not suicide attempts just Epilepsy)
    3) Over recorded 90 times sinning DISRESPECT=GOD'S JUSTICE" I received experience of who or what I disrespected
    4) Over 30 times "GOD'S MERCY"=what I disrespected or criticized GOT BETTER
