He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord. aA bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord. bAn Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the Lord for ever: cBecause they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they dhired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee. Nevertheless the Lord thy God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the Lord thy God turned ethe curse into a blessing unto thee, because the Lord thy God loved thee. fThou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever. Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; gfor he is thy brother: thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because hthou wast a stranger in his land. The children that are begotten of them shall enter into the congregation of the Lord in their third generation.
