League
a treaty or confederacy. The Jews were forbidden to enter into
an alliance of any kind (1) with the Canaanites (Ex. 23:32, 33;
34:12-16); (2) with the Amalekites (Ex. 17:8, 14; Deut.
25:17-19); (3) with the Moabites and Ammonites (Deut. 2:9, 19).
Treaties were permitted to be entered into with all other
nations. Thus David maintained friendly intercourse with the
kings of Tyre and Hamath, and Solomon with the kings of Tyre and
Egypt.

LEAGUE, crim. law, contracts. In criminal law, a league is a conspiracy to

by which two or more nations agree not only to defend each other, but to
carry on war against their common enemies. 2d. Defensive, but not offensive,
obliging each to defend the other against any foreign invasion. 3d. Leagues
of simple amity, by which one contracts not to invade, injure, or offend the
other; this usually includes the liberty of mutual commerce and trade, and
the safe guard of merchants and traders in each others dominion. Bac. Ab.
