Organized by subject with introductory notes to most sections, the book covers such topics as adoption, bribery, contracts, crime and punishment, divorce, government, crimes against the state, homicide, husband and wife, master and servant, perjury, prostitution, oaths and wills. The last section, "Woman" is illustrative of the utility of this anthology.

Էջ 21 - Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God : in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy .son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates...
Էջ 20 - ... for I, the Lord thy God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
