The Enjoyment Of Captured Women: A Text

“When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the Lord thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive, And thou seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and has a desire unto her, that thou wouldst have her to thy wife, Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails … and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife.”

–Deuteronomy 21:11, 13
