Laws Concerning Wives

21:10 When you go out to do battle with your enemies and the Lord your God allows you to prevail19 and you take prisoners, 21:11 if you should see among them20 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,21 trim her nails, 21:13 discard the clothing she was wearing when captured,22 and stay23 in your house, lamenting for her father and mother for a full month. After that you may have sexual relations24 with her and become her husband and she your wife. 21:14 If you are not pleased with her, then you must let her go25 where she pleases. You cannot in any case sell26 her;27 you must not take advantage of28 her, since you have already humiliated29 her.
