Deuteronomy: Bad News for Homo Sap.

The God from Hell spoke, saying:
When you come to a city to fight against it, then first proclaim peace toward it.
If it answers for peace, and opens its gates to you, then all the people found therein shall be your slaves, and they shall serve you.
If it won’t make peace, but will make war against you, then you shall besiege it.
And when the LORD thy God has delivered it into your hands, you shall kill every male inside with the edge of your sword.
But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the fortunes inside, shall you take for yourself; and you shall eat all the good things of your enemy, which the LORD thy God has given you.
Thus you shall do to every city even faraway which are not among your chosen nations.
In these cities, which the LORD thy God gives you for an inheritance, you shall leave nothing left alive:
But you shall utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God has commanded you ....                     (Deut. 20:10-17)

The God from Hell explained the principles of  usury
, saying: ‘You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow; and you shall rule over many nations, but they shall not rule over you’,(15:6) adding, ‘To a foreigner you may lend upon interest, but to your brother you shall not lend upon interest.’ (23:20)

The God from Hell explained how to treat women
 [If you] see among the captives a beautiful woman, and you have desire for her and would take her for yourself as wife, then you shall bring her home to your house, and she shall shave her head and pare her nails. And she shall put off her captive's garb, and shall remain in your house and bewail her father and her mother a full month; after that you may go in to her, and be her husband, and she shall be your wife. Then, if you have no delight in her, you shall let her go where she will; (21:11-14)
If you take a fancy to a captive girl, take her home with you, shave her hair off, and considerately allow her to ‘bewail’ your having killed off all her family - for a month or so. Then, ‘go into her’ and marry her ... but if, at the end, you ‘have no delight’ in her – just chuck her out, no problem. At no stage is she consulted, about anything. Who unleashed this God from Hell upon the human race, Seymour Light wondered to himself?

The God from Hell explains a Marriage contract
Want to get married? Simple: just save up fifty shekels, then rape the object of your desire:
If a man meets a virgin who is not betrothed, and seizes her and lies with her, and they are found, then the man who lay with her shall give to the father of the young woman fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife, (22:28-9)
- or, another one of his wives, added Seymour Light. Polygamy was quite OK for men, for them to collect wives in this way.

Divorce- just give her a note A faithful married woman could be divorced, by giving her a note. The kitchen not clean enough? 

When a man takes a wife and marries her, if then she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some indecency in her, and he writes her a bill of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, and she departs out of his house, (24:1)

A Virgin raped? Just kill her!   If a virgin woman is engaged, then has the misfortune to be raped - she is to be stoned as if its her fault: 
If there is a betrothed virgin, and a man meets her in the city and lies with her, then you shall bring them both out to the gate of that city, and you shall stone them to death with stones, (22:23-25). 
Commented Merlin Stone: 'Only in the deserted countryside might a woman be 'excused' for having been raped, since perhaps she had called for help and not been heard.' (p.216)

The God from Hell explains why Christ was crucified:
"If a prophet arises among you, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or wonder which he tells you comes to pass, and if he says, `Let us go after other gods,' which you have not known, `and let us serve them,' you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or to that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you, to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall walk after the LORD your God and fear him, and keep his commandments and obey his voice, and you shall serve him and cleave to him. But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, (13:1-5)
A dreamer of dreams must not live!

The God from Hell on how to eradicate Cities
And we captured all his cities at that time and utterly destroyed every city, men, women, and children; we left none remaining” (2:34) .. “destroying every city, men women and children (3:6)” … When the LORD your God brings you into the land which you are entering to take possession of it, and clears away many nations before you …and when the LORD your God gives them over to you, and you defeat them; then you must utterly destroy them; you shall make no covenant with them, and show no mercy to them. .. But thus shall you deal with them: you shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars, and hew down their Ashe'rim, and burn their graven images with fire. (7:3-5). Once rival kings are captured, “You shall make their name perish from under heaven’(7:24) ..
… then the LORD will drive out all these nations before you, and you will dispossess nations greater and mightier than yourselves. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours; your territory shall be from the wilderness and Lebanon and from the River, the river Euphra'tes, to the western sea. … You shall surely destroy all the places where the nations whom you shall dispossess served their gods, upon the high mountains and upon the hills and under every green tree; you shall tear down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars, and burn their Ashe'rim with fire; you shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy their name out of that place. (11:23-25, 122-4)
Real holy stuff, thought Seymour Light. He dreaded to think how many psychopathic homicidal maniacs had been inspired by this texts 

The God from Hell explains how to Curse
A the long list of curses is given, as dire afflictions, then it is explained how these curses may be ‘activated,’ either against a man:
The LORD would not pardon him, but rather the anger of the LORD and his jealousy would smoke against that man, and the curses written in this book would settle upon him
Or the land as a whole:
 therefore the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, bringing upon it all the curses written in this book; (29:20,27)
Standard black-magic technique, reflected Seymour Light.

Song of Betrayal
 After long diatribes about how the Isrelites may gain their land, greater Israel, if they are obedient enough, finally Yahweh composes a song which fore-ordains that they are to betray him: ‘that this song may be a witness against the people of Israel.’. This is retrospective prophecy so to speak, i.e. written centuries after Israel had ceased to exist (9th century BCE), but trying to appear earlier: Moses is summoned back from the dead so to speak, to have words put into his mouth by the Levitical priesthood (or whoever you believe was writing this), averring this is an 'oral tradition' which they are putting into writing. Its the usual bloody rant:
       I will make my arrows drunk with blood,
       and my sword shall devour flesh --
       with the blood of the slain and the captives,
       from the long-haired heads of the enemy.'

'Deuteronomy' means 'second book' or a 'second law', as re-envisoned by the Levite priests in Babylonian exile. It was well summed-up by Douglas Reed, in his chapter The Levites and the Law: The purpose and meaning of existence, under this "Mosaic Law", was the destruction and enslavement of others, for the sake of plunder and power.

Truly, mused Seymour Light, no arch-fiend from Hell ever taught more sinister arts to the Human race. even accepting that those city-destructions never happened, just wishing such things to happen was unbelievably wicked. Only after reading the Book of Deuteronomy, was Seymour Light finally able to appreciate the ultimate essence of Pure Evil.
