You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the forth generation of those who reject me.
Whoever curses father or mother shall be put to death.
If the owner knocks out a tooth of a male or female slave, the slave shall be let go, a free person, to compensate for the tooth.
When a woman has a discharge of blood that is her regular discharge from her body, she shall be in her impurity for seven days, and whoever touches her shall be unclean until evening. Everything upon which she lies during her impurity shall be unclean; everything also upon which she sits shall be unclean.
If a man lies with a man as with a woman, both of them have commited an abomination; they shall be put to death; their blood is upon them. If a man takes a wife and her mother also, it is depravity; they shall be burned to death, both he and they, that there may be no depravity amoung you. If a man has sexual relations with an animal, he shall be put to death; and you shall kill the animal.
One who blasphemes the name of the Lord shall be put to death; the whole congregation shall stone the blasphemer. (followed by 24.17: Anyone who kills a human being shall be put to death.)
And fire came out from the Lord and consumed the two hundred fifty men offering the incense.
If you do not diligently observe all the words of this law that are written in this book, fearing
this glorious and awesome name, the LORD your God, then the LORD will overwhelm both you
and your offspring with severe and lasting afflictions and grievous and lasting maladies. He
will bring back upon you all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were in dread, and they shall
cling to you. Every other malady and affliction, even though not recorded in he book of this law,
the LORD will inflict on you until you are destroyed.
And just as the LORD took delight in making you prosperous and numerous, so the Lord will
take delight in bringing you to ruin and destruction.
