Deuteronomy Chapter 25 KJV

King James Version, Holy Bible

If there be a controversy between men, and they come unto judgment, that the judges may judge them; then they shall justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked.

And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to be beaten, that the judge shall cause him to lie down, and to be beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certain number.

Forty stripes he may give him, and not exceed: lest, if he should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then thy brother should seem vile unto thee.

Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.

If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband's brother unto her.

And it shall be, that the firstborn which she beareth shall succeed in the name of his brother which is dead, that his name be not put out of Israel.

Deuteronomy Chapter 25 (Old Testament)

And if the man like not to take his brother's wife, then let his brother's wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, My husband's brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband's brother.

Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him: and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her;

Then shall his brother's wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto that man that will not build up his brother's house.

10 And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe loosed.

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.

verse of the day

Deuteronomy Chapter 25 (Old Testament)

13 Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small.

14 Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small.

15 But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

16 For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto the Lord thy God.

17 Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt;

18 How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God.

19 Therefore it shall be, when the Lord thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget it.

Deuteronomy Chapter 25

Verse: "You shall not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the grain." (Deuteronomy 25:4)

Lesson: This verse emphasizes the importance of treating animals humanely and with kindness. In ancient times, oxen were used to thresh grain by walking on it to separate the edible portion from the husk. The Israelites were commanded not to withhold food from the oxen while they were working. This commandment teaches us to be compassionate to all living beings, whether humans or animals.

Conclusion: This verse is a reminder that our treatment of animals is an important part of our relationship with God. We must not exploit or mistreat animals for our own benefit. As we care for the creatures around us, we demonstrate our reverence for the Creator who made them. By obeying this commandment, we can cultivate a spirit of kindness and compassion in our daily lives.

Prayer points: Let us pray for the grace to treat animals with kindness and respect. May we recognize the value of all living beings and honor God's creation. Help us to extend our love and compassion to all creatures, great and small.
