There are many capital crimes listed in this chapter and others that are not considered that bad in some modern "enlightened" nations. However, it is noteworthy that other nations of the time had criminal justice systems that were much more severe. The Mosaic law does not include crimes against property or against the state, for example, as capital crimes. The evils described here are either against God or against the integrity of the families of God's chosen people and had already so contaminated the land of Canaan that God would not allow the same to destroy His elect nation.
