If you're illegitimate, you cannot enter the assembly

Deuteronomy 23:2 One of illegitimate birth shall not enter the assembly of the LORD; even to the tenth generation none of his descendants shall enter the assembly of the LORD.


In other words, if a child is born illegitimately, they are excluded from being a part of the congregation. Not only that but also all their descendants for 10 generations.

I do wonder who kept track of this data.

To the tenth generation? What's that all about? How can they teach this stuff with a straight face?
