I Iverstand what the I is saying and I agree that it seems strange to bring forth a seed for a dead brother who was wicked. But that was the custom of the Israelites, whether the brother was good or evil. The custom of bringing up a seed in the name of your brother, with your brother's wife if he dies before having a child is also spoken about in the New Testament when some people asked Christ something about it. And if the I look at it another way. Just like if a wicked man has children, eventually after some generations his descendants might turn to Jah. So if a man brings forth a seed for his brother's wife, then that gives the opportunity for the future generations to turn to Jah.
RasTafarI is Iver merciful, and he even allows the most wicked to live and have children, to give that life line an opportunity to change from their wickedness and turn to righteousness.
But I still wonder about that story and even that custom. I wonder if that custom came from God or from men. And I wonder if God really slew the man or he died for some other reason, and people said Jah slew him to scare others into following that custom.
I don't know for sure, but I would think that many Israelites have not brought forth children with their dead brother's wife, but I haven't heard other stories about men being killed by God for not doing that. Also, if Jah slew him just for spilling his seed alone, then I don't think that many men would be alive today, it is so common that it is spoken about on television shows and promoted in high school health classes.
