THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on Book of Deuteronomy (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

¤ Chapter 21: The expiation of a secret murder. The marrying a captive. The eldest son must not be deprived of his birthright for hatred of his mother. A stubborn son is to be stoned to death. When one is hanged on a gibbet, he must be taken down the same day and buried.
