Deuteronomy 24:7

Context

24:7 If a man is found kidnapping a person from among his fellow Israelites, 1  and regards him as mere property 2  and sells him, that kidnapper 3  must die. In this way you will purge 4  evil from among you.

1 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.

2 tn Or “and enslaves him.”

3 tn Heb “that thief.”

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