Law and Promise

1. True or False? If a man desired to marry a woman who had been taken captive in battle, that woman had to shave her head before they could be married.

True (Deut.) 21 : 11, 12 )

2. If a man took a wife from among the captives of war and decided later he had made a mistake, he could send her away.

True (Deut. 21 : 14 ) . However, she was not to be sold as a slave or mistreated in any way.

3. If a man had two wives, one loved and one unloved, he was allowed to count the firstborn son of the one loved as his true firstborn, even if the unloved bore him a son first.

False (Deut. 21: 15-17 ) The firstborn was to receive a double portion regardless of which wife gave birth to him.
