19 Revised Standard Version Passage

15"A single witness shall not prevail against a man for any crime or for any wrong in connection with any offense that he has committed; only on the evidence of two witnesses, or of three witnesses, shall a charge be sustained.Witnesses. Dt.19.15-21
16If a malicious witness rises against any man to accuse him of wrongdoing, 
17then both parties to the dispute shall appear before the LORD, before the priests and the judges who are in office in those days; 
18the judges shall inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely, 
19then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother; so you shall purge the evil from the midst of you. 
20And the rest shall hear, and fear, and shall never again commit any such evil among you. 
21Your eye shall not pity; it shall be life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
