15:1 Then sang Moses and the children of
Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider
hath he thrown into the sea.
15:2 The LORD is my strength and song, and
he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an
habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.
15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is
15:4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath
he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red
15:5 The depths have covered them: they
sank into the bottom as a stone.
15:6 Thy right hand, O Lord, is become
glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the
15:7 And in the greatness of thine
excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou
sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
15:8 And with the blast of thy nostrils the
waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap,
and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.
15:9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will
overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon
them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
15:10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the
sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
15:11 Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among
the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises,
15:12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand,
the earth swallowed them.
15:13 Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the
people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength
unto thy holy habitation.
15:14 The people shall hear, and be afraid:
sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.
15:15 Then the dukes of Edom shall be
amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them;
all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.
15:16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them;
by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till
thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou
15:17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant
them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O Lord, which
thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which
thy hands have established.
15:18 The LORD shall reign for ever and
15:19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with
his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought
again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went
on dry land in the midst of the sea.
15:20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister
of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after
her with timbrels and with dances.
15:21 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to
the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider
hath he thrown into the sea.
15:22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red
sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went
three days in the wilderness, and found no water.
15:23 And when they came to Marah, they
could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter:
therefore the name of it was called Marah.
15:24 And the people murmured against
Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
15:25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD
shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters
were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance,
and there he proved them,
15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently
hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is
right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep
all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I
have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
15:27 And they came to Elim, where were
twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they
encamped there by the waters.
16:1 And they took their journey from Elim,
and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the
wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth
day of the second month after their departing out of the land of
16:2 And the whole congregation of the
children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:
16:3 And the children of Israel said unto
them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of
Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the
full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this
whole assembly with hunger.
16:4 Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold,
I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and
gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they
will walk in my law, or no.
16:5 And it shall come to pass, that on the
sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be
twice as much as they gather daily.
16:6 And Moses and Aaron said unto all the
children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that the LORD hath
brought you out from the land of Egypt:
16:7 And in the morning, then ye shall see
the glory of the LORD; for that he heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and what are we, that ye murmur against us?
16:8 And Moses said, This shall be, when the LORD shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the
morning bread to the full; for that the LORD heareth your murmurings
which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are not
against us, but against the LORD.
16:9 And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto
all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before the LORD:
for he hath heard your murmurings.
16:10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spake
unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they
looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD
appeared in the cloud.
16:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
16:12 I have heard the murmurings of the
children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat
flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread; and ye shall
know that I am the LORD your God.
16:13 And it came to pass, that at even the
quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay
round about the host.
16:14 And when the dew that lay was gone
up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round
thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.
16:15 And when the children of Israel saw
it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it
was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath
given you to eat.
16:16 This is the thing which the LORD hath
commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for
every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man
for them which are in his tents.
16:17 And the children of Israel did so,
and gathered, some more, some less.
16:18 And when they did mete it with an
omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered
little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.
16:19 And Moses said, Let no man leave of
it till the morning.
16:20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not
unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred
worms, and stank: and Moses was wroth with them.
16:21 And they gathered it every morning,
every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it
16:22 And it came to pass, that on the
sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man:
and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.
16:23 And he said unto them, This is that
which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath
unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye
will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept
until the morning.
16:24 And they laid it up till the morning,
as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm
16:25 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for
to day is a sabbath unto the LORD: to day ye shall not find it in the
16:26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on
the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.
16:27 And it came to pass, that there went
out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they
16:28 And the LORD said unto Moses, How
long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?
16:29 See, for that the LORD hath given you
the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two
days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place
on the seventh day.
16:30 So the people rested on the seventh
16:31 And the house of Israel called the
name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the
taste of it was like wafers made with honey.
16:32 And Moses said, This is the thing
which the LORD commandeth, Fill an omer of it to be kept for your
generations; that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in
the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.
16:33 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a
pot, and put an omer full of manna therein, and lay it up before the LORD,
to be kept for your generations.
16:34 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron
laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.
16:35 And the children of Israel did eat
manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat
manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.
16:36 Now an omer is the tenth part of an
17:1 And all the congregation of the
children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their
journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitched in
Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.
17:2 Wherefore the people did chide with
Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto
them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the LORD?
17:3 And the people thirsted there for
water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is
this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our
children and our cattle with thirst?
17:4 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying,
What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me.
17:5 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on
before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy
rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.
17:6 Behold, I will stand before thee there
upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall
come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in
the sight of the elders of Israel.
17:7 And he called the name of the place
Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel,
and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or
17:8 Then came Amalek, and fought with
Israel in Rephidim.
17:9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us
out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the
top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.
17:10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to
him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the
top of the hill.
17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held
up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand,
17:12 But Moses hands were heavy; and they
took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and
Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the
other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
17:13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his
people with the edge of the sword.
17:14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write
this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua:
for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under
17:15 And Moses built an altar, and called
the name of it Jehovahnissi:
17:16 For he said, Because the LORD hath
sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to
18:1 When Jethro, the priest of Midian,
Moses' father in law, heard of all that God had done for Moses, and
for Israel his people, and that the LORD had brought Israel out of
18:2 Then Jethro, Moses' father in law,
took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her back,
18:3 And her two sons; of which the name of
the one was Gershom; for he said, I have been an alien in a strange
18:4 And the name of the other was Eliezer;
for the God of my father, said he, was mine help, and delivered me
from the sword of Pharaoh:
18:5 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, came
with his sons and his wife unto Moses into the wilderness, where he
encamped at the mount of God:
18:6 And he said unto Moses, I thy father
in law Jethro am come unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with
18:7 And Moses went out to meet his father
in law, and did obeisance, and kissed him; and they asked each other
of their welfare; and they came into the tent.
18:8 And Moses told his father in law all
that the LORD had done unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's
sake, and all the travail that had come upon them by the way, and how
the LORD delivered them.
18:9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the
goodness which the LORD had done to Israel, whom he had delivered out
of the hand of the Egyptians.
18:10 And Jethro said, Blessed be the LORD,
who hath delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of
the hand of Pharaoh, who hath delivered the people from under the hand
of the Egyptians.
18:11 Now I know that the LORD is greater
than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was
18:12 And Jethro, Moses' father in law,
took a burnt offering and sacrifices for God: and Aaron came, and all
the elders of Israel, to eat bread with Moses' father in law before
18:13 And it came to pass on the morrow,
that Moses sat to judge the people: and the people stood by Moses from
the morning unto the evening.
18:14 And when Moses' father in law saw all
that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest
to the people? why sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people
stand by thee from morning unto even?
18:15 And Moses said unto his father in
law, Because the people come unto me to enquire of God:
18:16 When they have a matter, they come
unto me; and I judge between one and another, and I do make them know
the statutes of God, and his laws.
18:17 And Moses' father in law said unto
him, The thing that thou doest is not good.
18:18 Thou wilt surely wear away, both
thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy
for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone.
18:19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will
give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people
to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God:
18:20 And thou shalt teach them ordinances
and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the
work that they must do.
18:21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of
all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating
covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and
rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:
18:22 And let them judge the people at all
seasons: and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring
unto thee, but every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be
easier for thyself, and they shall bear the burden with thee.
18:23 If thou shalt do this thing, and God
command thee so, then thou shalt be able to endure, and all this
people shall also go to their place in peace.
18:24 So Moses hearkened to the voice of
his father in law, and did all that he had said.
18:25 And Moses chose able men out of all
Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands,
rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.
18:26 And they judged the people at all
seasons: the hard causes they brought unto Moses, but every small
matter they judged themselves.
18:27 And Moses let his father in law
depart; and he went his way into his own land.
19:1 In the third month, when the children
of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came
they into the wilderness of Sinai.
19:2 For they were departed from Rephidim,
and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the
wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.
19:3 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD
called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to
the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;
19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the
Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto
19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my
voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar
treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of
priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt
speak unto the children of Israel.
19:7 And Moses came and called for the
elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words
which the LORD commanded him.
19:8 And all the people answered together,
and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned
the words of the people unto the LORD.
19:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I
come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak
with thee, and believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the
people unto the LORD.
19:10 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto
the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash
19:11 And be ready against the third day:
for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the
people upon mount Sinai.
19:12 And thou shalt set bounds unto the
people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up
into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the
mount shall be surely put to death:
19:13 There shall not an hand touch it, but
he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or
man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall
come up to the mount.
19:14 And Moses went down from the mount
unto the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their
19:15 And he said unto the people, Be ready
against the third day: come not at your wives.
19:16 And it came to pass on the third day
in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick
cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so
that all the people that was in the camp trembled.
19:17 And Moses brought forth the people
out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of
19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a
smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke
thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked
19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet
sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God
answered him by a voice.
19:20 And the LORD came down upon mount
Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the
top of the mount; and Moses went up.
19:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go
down, charge the people, lest they break through unto the LORD to
gaze, and many of them perish.
19:22 And let the priests also, which come
near to the LORD, sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon
19:23 And Moses said unto the LORD, The
people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying,
Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it.
19:24 And the LORD said unto him, Away, get
thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let
not the priests and the people break through to come up unto the LORD,
lest he break forth upon them.
19:25 So Moses went down unto the people,
and spake unto them.
20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,
20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have
brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before
20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any
graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or
that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to
them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God,
visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third
and fourth generation of them that hate me;
20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of
them that love me, and keep my commandments.
20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD
thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh
his name in vain.
20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it
20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all
20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of
the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son,
nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle,
nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven
and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh
day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother:
that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth
20:13 Thou shalt not kill.
20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
20:15 Thou shalt not steal.
20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness
against thy neighbour.
20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's
house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant,
nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is
20:18 And all the people saw the
thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the
mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood
20:19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou
with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
20:20 And Moses said unto the people, Fear
not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before
your faces, that ye sin not.
20:21 And the people stood afar off, and
Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.
20:22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus
thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have
talked with you from heaven.
20:23 Ye shall not make with me gods of
silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold.
20:24 An altar of earth thou shalt make
unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy
peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I
record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee.
20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of
stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy
tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.
20:26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps
unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon.
21:1 Now these are the judgments which thou
shalt set before them.
21:2 If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six
years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for
21:3 If he came in by himself, he shall go
out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with
21:4 If his master have given him a wife,
and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children
shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.
21:5 And if the servant shall plainly say,
I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free:
21:6 Then his master shall bring him unto
the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door
post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he
shall serve him for ever.
21:7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a
maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do.
21:8 If she please not her master, who hath
betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell
her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt
deceitfully with her.
21:9 And if he have betrothed her unto his
son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.
21:10 If he take him another wife; her
food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.
21:11 And if he do not these three unto
her, then shall she go out free without money.
21:12 He that smiteth a man, so that he
die, shall be surely put to death.
21:13 And if a man lie not in wait, but God
deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he
21:14 But if a man come presumptuously upon
his neighbour, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine
altar, that he may die.
21:15 And he that smiteth his father, or
his mother, shall be surely put to death.
21:16 And he that stealeth a man, and
selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to
21:17 And he that curseth his father, or
his mother, shall surely be put to death.
21:18 And if men strive together, and one
smite another with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but
keepeth his bed:
21:19 If he rise again, and walk abroad
upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall
pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly
21:20 And if a man smite his servant, or
his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely
21:21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day
or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.
21:22 If men strive, and hurt a woman with
child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow:
he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay
upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
21:23 And if any mischief follow, then thou
shalt give life for life,
21:24 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand
for hand, foot for foot,
21:25 Burning for burning, wound for wound,
stripe for stripe.
21:26 And if a man smite the eye of his
servant, or the eye of his maid, that it perish; he shall let him go
free for his eye's sake.
21:27 And if he smite out his manservant's
tooth, or his maidservant's tooth; he shall let him go free for his
21:28 If an ox gore a man or a woman, that
they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not
be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.
21:29 But if the ox were wont to push with
his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he
hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox
shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.
21:30 If there be laid on him a sum of
money, then he shall give for the ransom of his life whatsoever is
laid upon him.
21:31 Whether he have gored a son, or have
gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto
21:32 If the ox shall push a manservant or
a maidservant; he shall give unto their master thirty shekels of
silver, and the ox shall be stoned.
21:33 And if a man shall open a pit, or if
a man shall dig a pit, and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall
21:34 The owner of the pit shall make it
good, and give money unto the owner of them; and the dead beast shall
21:35 And if one man's ox hurt another's,
that he die; then they shall sell the live ox, and divide the money of
it; and the dead ox also they shall divide.
21:36 Or if it be known that the ox hath
used to push in time past, and his owner hath not kept him in; he
shall surely pay ox for ox; and the dead shall be his own.
22:1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a
sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox,
and four sheep for a sheep.
22:2 If a thief be found breaking up, and
be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him.
22:3 If the sun be risen upon him, there
shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if
he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.
22:4 If the theft be certainly found in his
hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore
22:5 If a man shall cause a field or
vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in his beast, and shall feed in
another man's field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of
his own vineyard, shall he make restitution.
22:6 If fire break out, and catch in
thorns, so that the stacks of corn, or the standing corn, or the
field, be consumed therewith; he that kindled the fire shall surely
22:7 If a man shall deliver unto his
neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man's
house; if the thief be found, let him pay double.
22:8 If the thief be not found, then the
master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, to see whether
he have put his hand unto his neighbour's goods.
22:9 For all manner of trespass, whether it
be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost
thing which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties
shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he
shall pay double unto his neighbour.
22:10 If a man deliver unto his neighbour
an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be
hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it:
22:11 Then shall an oath of the LORD be
between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour's
goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make
22:12 And if it be stolen from him, he
shall make restitution unto the owner thereof.
22:13 If it be torn in pieces, then let him
bring it for witness, and he shall not make good that which was torn.
22:14 And if a man borrow ought of his
neighbour, and it be hurt, or die, the owner thereof being not with
it, he shall surely make it good.
22:15 But if the owner thereof be with it,
he shall not make it good: if it be an hired thing, it came for his
22:16 And if a man entice a maid that is
not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his
22:17 If her father utterly refuse to give
her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.
22:18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to
22:19 Whosoever lieth with a beast shall
surely be put to death.
22:20 He that sacrificeth unto any god,
save unto the LORD only, he shall be utterly destroyed.
22:21 Thou shalt neither vex a stranger,
nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
22:22 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or
22:23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and
they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;
22:24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I
will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your
22:25 If thou lend money to any of my
people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer,
neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.
22:26 If thou at all take thy neighbour's
raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun
22:27 For that is his covering only, it is
his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to
pass, when he crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.
22:28 Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor
curse the ruler of thy people.
22:29 Thou shalt not delay to offer the
first of thy ripe fruits, and of thy liquors: the firstborn of thy
sons shalt thou give unto me.
22:30 Likewise shalt thou do with thine
oxen, and with thy sheep: seven days it shall be with his dam; on the
eighth day thou shalt give it me.
22:31 And ye shall be holy men unto me:
neither shall ye eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; ye
shall cast it to the dogs.
23:1 Thou shalt not raise a false report:
put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
23:2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to
do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to
23:3 Neither shalt thou countenance a poor
man in his cause.
23:4 If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his
ass going astray, thou shalt surely bring it back to him again.
23:5 If thou see the ass of him that hateth
thee lying under his burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, thou
shalt surely help with him.
23:6 Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of
thy poor in his cause.
23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and
the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the
23:8 And thou shalt take no gift: for the
gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.
23:9 Also thou shalt not oppress a
stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing ye were
strangers in the land of Egypt.
23:10 And six years thou shalt sow thy
land, and shalt gather in the fruits thereof:
23:11 But the seventh year thou shalt let
it rest and lie still; that the poor of thy people may eat: and what
they leave the beasts of the field shall eat. In like manner thou
shalt deal with thy vineyard, and with thy oliveyard.
23:12 Six days thou shalt do thy work, and
on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may
rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.
23:13 And in all things that I have said
unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other
gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.
23:14 Three times thou shalt keep a feast
unto me in the year.
23:15 Thou shalt keep the feast of
unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I
commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it
thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)
23:16 And the feast of harvest, the
firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the
feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast
gathered in thy labours out of the field.
23:17 Three items in the year all thy males
shall appear before the LORD God.
23:18 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my
sacrifice with leavened bread; neither shall the fat of my sacrifice
remain until the morning.
23:19 The first of the firstfruits of thy
land thou shalt bring into the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt
not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.
23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee,
to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have
23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice,
provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my
name is in him.
23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his
voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine
enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.
23:23 For mine Angel shall go before thee,
and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the
Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I
will cut them off.
23:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their
gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly
overthrow them, and quite break down their images.
23:25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God,
and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness
away from the midst of thee.
23:26 There shall nothing cast their young,
nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.
23:27 I will send my fear before thee, and
will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make
all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.
23:28 And I will send hornets before thee,
which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from
23:29 I will not drive them out from before
thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the
field multiply against thee.
23:30 By little and little I will drive
them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the
23:31 And I will set thy bounds from the
Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto
the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your
hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee.
23:32 Thou shalt make no covenant with
them, nor with their gods.
23:33 They shall not dwell in thy land,
lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it
will surely be a snare unto thee.
24:1 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders
of Israel; and worship ye afar off.
24:2 And Moses alone shall come near the LORD:
but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.
24:3 And Moses came and told the people all
the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people
answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath
said will we do.
24:4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD,
and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill,
and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
24:5 And he sent young men of the children
of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace
offerings of oxen unto the LORD.
24:6 And Moses took half of the blood, and
put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
24:7 And he took the book of the covenant,
and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD
hath said will we do, and be obedient.
24:8 And Moses took the blood, and
sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the
covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these
24:9 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab,
and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel:
24:10 And they saw the God of Israel: and
there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone,
and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.
24:11 And upon the nobles of the children
of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and
24:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up
to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of
stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou
mayest teach them.
24:13 And Moses rose up, and his minister
Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God.
24:14 And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye
here for us, until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur
are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto
24:15 And Moses went up into the mount, and
a cloud covered the mount.
24:16 And the glory of the LORD abode upon
mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he
called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.
24:17 And the sight of the glory of the LORD
was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the
children of Israel.
24:18 And Moses went into the midst of the
cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty
days and forty nights.
25:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel,
that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly
with his heart ye shall take my offering.
25:3 And this is the offering which ye
shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,
25:4 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and
fine linen, and goats' hair,
25:5 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers'
skins, and shittim wood,
25:6 Oil for the light, spices for
anointing oil, and for sweet incense,
25:7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in
the ephod, and in the breastplate.
25:8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that
I may dwell among them.
25:9 According to all that I shew thee,
after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the
instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
25:10 And they shall make an ark of shittim
wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit
and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height
25:11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure
gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it
a crown of gold round about.
25:12 And thou shalt cast four rings of
gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings
shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it.
25:13 And thou shalt make staves of shittim
wood, and overlay them with gold.
25:14 And thou shalt put the staves into
the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with

the ark: they shall not be taken from it.
25:16 And thou shalt put into the ark the
testimony which I shall give thee.
25:17 And thou shalt make a mercy seat of
pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a
cubit and a half the breadth thereof.
25:18 And thou shalt make two cherubims of
gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the

and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye
make the cherubims on the two ends thereof.
25:20 And the cherubims shall stretch forth
their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and
their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the
faces of the cherubims be.
25:21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat
above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I
shall give thee.
25:22 And there I will meet with thee, and
I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the
two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things
which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.
25:23 Thou shalt also make a table of
shittim wood: two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the
breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about.

of an hand breadth round about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to
the border thereof round about.

of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on the four

thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to
cover withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them.

shewbread before me alway.

pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft,
and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of

the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one
side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side:

with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like
almonds in the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six
branches that come out of the candlestick.
25:34 And in the candlesticks shall be four
bowls made like unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers.
25:35 And there shall be a knop under two
branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a
knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches
that proceed out of the candlestick.
25:36 Their knops and their branches shall
be of the same: all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold.

thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give
light over against it.

gold, upon the four sockets of silver.
26:33 And thou shalt hang up the vail under
the taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark
of the testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy
place and the most holy.

without the vail, which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons
shall order it from evening to morning before the LORD: it shall be a
statute for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the children

shalt make, and shalt put them on the two sides of the ephod

breastplate be not loosed from the ephod.

of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron's
heart, when he goeth in before the LORD: and Aaron shall bear the
judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart before the LORD

ephod all of blue.
28:32 And there shall be an hole in the top
