Why does the widow of the brother have to spit in his face and take off his shoe? What does taking off his shoe and spitting in his face symbolize?


Deuteronomy 25:9

NKJV - 9 "then his brother's wife shall come to him in the presence of the elders, remove his sandal from his foot, spit in his face, and answer and say, 'So shall it be done to the man who will not build up his brother's house.'
