Deut 24:1

24:1 some indecency. The Hebrew of this phrase is the same as “anything indecent” in 23:14, and is rather general. Adultery is apparently not in view, for adultery was punishable by death (22:22). The fact of divorce for a variety of reasons is recognized, but not necessarily condoned (vv. 1–3 are descriptive, not prescriptive).
