If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not listen to the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and even when they punish him still will not pay attention to them, his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of the town at the gate of that place. And they shall say to the elders of his town, 'This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious and will not listen to us; he is a wastrel and a drunkard.' Then all his fellow citizens shall stone him to death. You must banish this evil from your midst. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.
