1 tn Heb “your brother, the son of your mother.” In a polygamous society it was not rare to have half brothers and sisters by way of a common father and different mothers.

2 tn In the Hebrew text these words are in the form of a brief quotation: “entice you secretly saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods.’”

3 tn Heb “fathers” (also in v. 17).

4 tn Heb “which you have not known, you or your fathers.” (cf. KJV, ASV; on “fathers” cf. v. 18).

5 tn Heb “the hand of the witnesses.” This means the two or three witnesses are to throw the first stones (cf. NCV, TEV, CEV, NLT).

6 tn Heb “the hand of all the people.”

7 tn Heb “who acts presumptuously not to listen” (cf. NASB).

8 tn The Hebrew term בִּעַרְתָּה (biartah), here and elsewhere in such contexts (cf. Deut 13:5; 17:7, 12; 19:19; 21:9), suggests God’s anger which consumes like fire (thus בָעַר, baar, “to burn”). See H. Ringgren, TDOT 2:203-4.

9 tc Some LXX traditions read הַנִּשְׁאָרִים (hannisharim, “those who remain”) for the MT’s יִשְׂרָאֵל (yisrael, “Israel”), understandable in light of Deut 19:20. However, the more difficult reading found in the MT is more likely original.

10 tn The Hebrew term נְבָלָה (nÿvalah) means more than just something stupid. It refers to a moral lapse so serious as to jeopardize the whole covenant community (cf. Gen 34:7; Judg 19:23; 20:6, 10; Jer 29:23). See C. Pan, NIDOTTE 3:11-13. Cf. NAB “she committed a crime against Israel.”

11 tn Heb “burn.” See note on Deut 21:21.

12 tn Heb “lying with” (so KJV, NASB), a Hebrew idiom for sexual relations.

13 tn Heb “a woman married to a husband.”

14 tn Heb “burn.” See note on the phrase “purge out” in Deut 21:21.

15 tn Heb “humbled.”

16 tn Heb “wife.”

17 tn Heb “burn.” See note on the phrase “purge out” in Deut 21:21.

18 tn Heb “from his brothers, from the sons of Israel.” The terms “brothers” and “sons of Israel” are in apposition; the second defines the first more specifically.

19 tn Or “and enslaves him.”

20 tn Heb “that thief.”

21 tn Heb “burn.” See note on the word “purge” in Deut 19:19.
