Deuteronomy 21:15-23New American Standard Bible (NASB)
15 “If a man has two wives, the one loved and the other [a]unloved, and both the loved and the [b]unloved have borne him sons, if the firstborn son belongs to the [c]unloved,16 then it shall be in the day he [d]wills what he has to his sons, he cannot make the son of the loved the firstborn before the son of the [e]unloved, who is the firstborn.17 But he shall acknowledge the firstborn, the son of the [f]unloved, by giving him a double portion of all that [g]he has, for he is the beginning of his strength; to him belongs the right of the firstborn.
18 “If any man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey his father or his mother, and when they chastise him, he will not even listen to them,19 then his father and mother shall seize him, and bring him out to the elders of his city [h]at the gateway of his hometown.20 They shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey us, he is a glutton and a drunkard.’21 Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death; so you shall remove the evil from your midst, and all Israel will hear of it and fear.
22 “If a man has committed a sin worthy of death and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree,23 his corpse shall not hang all night on the tree, but you shall surely bury him on the same day (for he who is hanged is [i]accursed of God), so that you do not defile your land which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance.
