Law and Promise:

1. Question: If a man was found guilty in a Jewish court and a beating was prescribed as punishment, how many blows was he to receive?

Forty (Deut. 25 :1-3 )

It was a common practice to give only thirty-one blows lest someone miscount and violate the law by giving too many ( cf. 2 Cor. 11 :24 ).
