F. LaGard Smith's Chronological reading plan in "The Daily Bible"combines laws God gave Moses, listed in Exodus 21:1 to 23:19, with similar laws in Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy. We think this repetition was God's way to stress certain rules, such as for the Sabbath, and are not combining them here.
