Bible: Deuteronomy 20:5-8

20:5 Moreover, the officers are to say to the troops, 1 Who among you 2  has built a new house and not dedicated 3  it? He may go home, lest he die in battle and someone else 4  dedicate it. 20:6 Or who among you has planted a vineyard and not benefited from it? He may go home, lest he die in battle and someone else benefit from it. 20:7 Or who among you 5  has become engaged to a woman but has not married her? He may go home, lest he die in battle and someone else marry her.” 20:8 In addition, the officers are to say to the troops, “Who among you is afraid and fainthearted? He may go home so that he will not make his fellow soldier’s 6  heart as fearful 7  as his own.”
