Bible: Deut 25:1-2

25:1 If controversy arises between people, 1  they should go to court for judgment. When the judges 2  hear the case, they shall exonerate 3  the innocent but condemn 4  the guilty. 25:2 Then, 5  if the guilty person is sentenced to a beating, 6  the judge shall force him to lie down and be beaten in his presence with the number of blows his wicked behavior deserves. 7
