Ki Tetse

  
BackForward
 21:17
 21:18
21:18 When a man has a wayward, rebellious son, who does not obey his father and mother, they shall have him flogged. If he still does not listen to them,
Ki-yiheyeh le'ish ben sorer umoreh eynenu shomea bekol aviv uvekol imo veyisru oto velo yishma aleyhem.



Commentary:

son
  This rule applies only to a boy between the ages of 13 and 13 (Sanhedrin 68b; Yad, Mamrim 7:5). It does not apply to a girl (Yad, Mamrim 7:11).

flogged
  With 39 lashes (Yad, Mamrim 7:7). The boy is flogged only if he eats the 'meal of a rebellious son' (see note on Deuteronomy 21:20), which is forbidden by Leviticus 19:26 (Hagahoth Maimonioth ad loc.; Sanhedrin 63a).
