Deuteronomy 20:20

Context
NET ©

However, you may chop down any tree you know is not suitable for food, 1  and you may use it to build siege works 2  against the city that is making war with you until that city falls.

NIV ©

However, you may cut down trees that you know are not fruit trees and use them to build siege works until the city at war with you falls.

NASB ©

"Only the trees which you know are not fruit trees you shall destroy and cut down, that you may construct siegeworks against the city that is making war with you until it falls.

NLT ©

But you may cut down trees that you know are not valuable for food. Use them to make the equipment you need to besiege the town until it falls.

MSG ©

The exception can be those trees which don't produce food; you can chop them down and use the timbers to build siege engines against the town that is resisting you until it falls.

BBE ©

Only those trees which you are certain are not used for food may be cut down and put to destruction: and you are to make walls of attack against the town till it is taken.

NRSV ©

You may destroy only the trees that you know do not produce food; you may cut them down for use in building siegeworks against the town that makes war with you, until it falls.

NKJV ©

"Only the trees which you know are not trees for food you may destroy and cut down, to build siegeworks against the city that makes war with you, until it is subdued.
