[b-hebrew] A Puzzle - find the catchword

Deut 24 in verse 16.  Where is the catchword that relates an apparently 
inconsistent or out of place clause to the whole subject just gone before? 
This is not my idea but Ehud Ben Zvi's. I presume it is the word: BeCHeTow 
(his sin).  What is even more baffling, (pull out hair moment) is that he 
says that this incongruent statement has been inserted here probably as a 
response to Exodus 22:20-23.  What is he talking about for goodness 

The problem with this book is that he asks so many questions and asks you to 
think about things but there are absolutely NO explanations or suggestions 
on his part.  You are left to fend for yourself!  I'm doing my best, 
discarding many things into the 'never-can-find-out-closet'  --  but now 
this comment annoys me sufficiently to get it off my chest!!
