Laws Concerning Wives
21:10 When you go out to do battle with your enemies and the Lord your God allows you to prevail 1 and you take prisoners, 21:11 if you should see among them 2 an attractive woman whom you wish to take as a wife, 21:12 you may bring her back to your house. She must shave her head, 3 trim her nails, 21:13 discard the clothing she was wearing when captured, 4 and stay 5 in your house, lamenting for her father and mother for a full month. After that you may have sexual relations 6 with her and become her husband and she your wife. 21:14 If you are not pleased with her, then you must let her go 7 where she pleases. You cannot in any case sell 8 her; 9 you must not take advantage of 10 her, since you have already humiliated 11 her.
