Exodus 22-27

The Facts (Chapter number: Verse)

22:16-18 - When a man seduces a virgin who is not engaged to be married and lies with her, he shall give the bride price for her and make her his wife. If the father refuses to give his daughter to the man, he shall pay an amount equal to the bride price for virgins. You shall not suffer a female sorcerer to live.
22:22-24 - You shall not abuse any widow or orphan. If they are abused God will heed their cry and His wrath will burn and will kill you with his sword, and your wives shall become widows and you children orphans.

23:8 - Officials shall not take a bride because a bride blinds an official and subverts the cause of those who are in the right.
23:19 - You shall not boil a kid in its mother's milk.

Exodus 24 - No mention of any women.

Exodus 25 - No mention of any women.

Exodus 26 - No mention of any women.

Exodus 27 - No mention of any women.

My Comments

Well, now we at least get God caring about the little people. God's wrath will come down upon anyone who treats widows or orphans badly, and I think that is a nice step in the right direction. Of course with his wrath he creates MORE orphans and widows, but you know, take what you can get.

And a woman's virginity is always available for a price.

Female sorcerers shall be destroy, but apparently MALE sorcerers are totally cool.

And women subvert justice. Awesome.

Now I'm gonna go recreate a Biblically accurate arc of the covenant and tabernacle. And then NOT go into it because I have boobs. Should be fun.

Tomorrow: Exodus 28-32
