- """If there is a dispute between men, and they come into court, and the judges decide between them, acquitting the innocent and condemning the guilty, "
- "then if the guilty man deserves to be beaten, the judge shall cause him to lie down and be beaten in his presence with a number of stripes in proportion to his offense. "
- "Forty stripes may be given him, but not more; lest, if one should go on to beat him with more stripes than these, your brother be degraded in your sight."
