Deuteronomy 25:2-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
2 if the one in the wrong deserves whipping, the judge shall have him lie down and in the presence of the judge receive the number of lashes the crime warrants. 3 Forty lashes may be given, but no more; or else, if more lashes are added to these many blows, your brother will be degraded in your sight.
Treatment of Oxen.
