In giving the second law, God reiterated what He had commanded before, in order to ensure the newer generation did not forget. He reiterated the law concerning the Cities of Refuge and the purposes and operations thereof. He cautioned against the sacred landmark and directed, “Thou shalt not remove thy neighbor’s landmark which they have long established as their inheritance. The need for two or more witnesses who accused a man of crime was reaffirmed. “One witness shall not rise up against a man for any inquiry for any sin that he sins.” For two or three witnesses are required before a man could be convicted of crime. If a witness rises up and accuses a man falsely, then the false witness and the person accused shall be made to appear before the Lord and before the Judges and the priest. And the judges shall make diligent inquiry, and if it turns out that the witness is a false witness, and has testified falsely, then he shall be condemned as he sought to condemn his brother and be treated likewise; that those who remain, shall see and hear and fear; and your eyes shall not pity him; but life shall go for life; eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand and foot for foot.
