Deuteronomy chapter 24 summary is about life functions. The chapter began with a statute or law Jesus the Messiah from God came in the flesh and reversed. The law was the bill of divorcement. In addition, it is written in this chapter that a divorced woman can remarry if she was put away by her husband.
However, Jesus came in the flesh and canceled that train of thought (Matthew 19:8). In this chapter, it is written that a husband cannot return to his ex-wife. He cannot do this once she has been put away (by him) and she remarried and became divorced again.
On the topic of marriage, newlyweds cannot be sent to war for at least a year. He has to cheer up his wife. When money is lent, the lender has to right to hold something from the borrower as collateral. This chapter talks about kidnapping, skin diseases, more on loans, and the wages of the poor.
Deuteronomy Chapter 24 Summary
The chapter transitions to laws around the death penalty. One must die for themselves and not for another. Death to anyone who “steals people” and sell like merchandise. This is captive slavery. Such a person is to be put to death.
God gave more rules and parameters around pledging and oppressing a hired servant who is poor and needy. If such a person cried out to God, God would hear may turn their oppression into sin for the offender. Speaking of sin, the person who committed sin is the person who will die.
Children wouldn’t be killed for their parent’s sin and vice versa. Perverting judgment is something people get caught up in and God forbade it; especially against the fatherless and widow.
Instead, God instructs to help the fatherless and widow and be empathetic because Israel used to be bondmen in Egypt and did not like the treatment. This is chapter 24 of the book of Deuteronomy summary, a good moral chapter.
