Deuteronomy 17


17:1 Thou shalt not sacrifice to the LORD thy God [any] bullock,
 or sheep, in which is blemish, [or] any evil favoredness: for
 that [is] an abomination to the LORD thy God.
17:2 If there shall be found among you, within any of thy gates
 which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman that hath
 wrought wickedness in the sight of of the LORD thy God, in
 transgressing his covenant,
17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshiped them,
 either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I
 have not commanded;
17:4 And it shall be told thee, and thou hast heard [of it], and
 inquired diligently, and behold, [it is] true, [and] the thing
 certain, [that] such abomination is wrought in Israel:
17:5 Then shalt thou bring forth to thy gates that man or that
 woman, who have committed that wicked thing, [even] that man or
 that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.
17:6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he
 that is worthy of death be put to death; [but] at the mouth of
 one witness he shall not be put to death.
17:7 The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put
 him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So
 thou shalt remove the evil from among you.
17:8 If there shall arise a matter too hard for thee in
 judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and
 between stroke and stroke, [being] matters of controversy
 within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and go up to the place
 which the LORD thy God shall choose;
17:9 And thou shalt come to the priests the Levites, and to the
 judge that shall be in those days, and inquire; and they shall
 show thee the sentence of judgment:
17:10 And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of
 that place which the LORD shall choose shall show thee; and
 thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform
 thee:
17:11 According to the sentence of the law which they shall
 teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell
 thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence
 which they shall show thee, [to] the right hand, nor [to] the
 left.
17:12 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not
 hearken to the priest that standeth to minister there before
 the LORD thy God, or to the judge, even that man shall die: and
 thou shalt remove the evil from Israel.
17:13 And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more
 presumptuously.
17:14 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God
 giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell in it, and
 shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations
 that [are] about me;
17:15 Thou shalt in any wise set [him] king over thee whom the
 LORD thy God shall choose: [one] from among thy brethren shalt
 thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over
 thee, who [is] not thy brother.
17:16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the
 people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply
 horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said to you, ye shall
 henceforth return no more that way.
17:17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart
 may turn not away: neither shall he greatly accumulate to
 himself silver and gold.
17:18 And it shall be when he sitteth upon the throne of his
 kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book
 out of [that which is] before the priests the Levites.
17:19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read in it all the
 days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God,
 to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do
 them:
17:20 That his heart may not be lifted above his brethren, and
 that he may not turn aside from the commandment [to] the right
 hand or [to] the left: to the end that he may prolong [his]
 days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of
 Israel.
