I thought these two were a reasonable representation of the subjects and tone of the chapter, but it took so many words to get even the basic gist of the law about the man who rejects his new wife that we missed out on mixed fabrics and various other laws about sex.


Interesting to note V 21 & V 24 says: You must purge the evil from among you.
V 22 says: You must purge the evil from Israel.
