Deuteronomy 25:11–12

Hilary Lipka has an interesting and informative post here from a Jewish perspective on a text that is not often discussed. Deuteronomy 25:11-12 is rendered in the ESV as follows.

11 “When men fight with one another and the wife of the one draws near to rescue her husband from the hand of him who is beating him and puts out her hand and seizes him by the private parts, 12 then you shall cut off her hand. Your eye shall have no pity.

Lipka's concern relates primarily to the woman's role in this passage.
