Exodus 20:21-21:36 NASB
not make other gods besides Me; gods of silver or gods of gold, you shall not make for yourselves. 24 You shall make an altar of earth for Me, and
you shall sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your oxen; in every place where I cause My name to be remembered,
I will come to you and bless you. 25 If you make an altar of stone for Me, you shall not build it of cut stones, for if you wield your tool on it,
you will profane it. 26 And you shall not go up by steps to My altar, so that your nakedness will not be exposed on it.’

22″If men struggle with each other and strike a woman with child so that she gives birth prematurely, yet there is no injury, he shall surely be fined
as the woman’s husband may demand of him, and he shall pay as the judges decide.23 But if there is any further injury, then you shall appoint as a
penalty life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.26″If a
