20:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
20:2 Again, thou shalt say to the children
of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the
strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto
Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall
stone him with stones.
20:3 And I will set my face against that
man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given
of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my
20:4 And if the people of the land do any
ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto
Molech, and kill him not:
20:5 Then I will set my face against that
man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a
whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their
20:6 And the soul that turneth after such
as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after
them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off
from among his people.
20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be
ye holy: for I am the LORD your God.
20:8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do
them: I am the LORD which sanctify you.
20:9 For every one that curseth his father
or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father
or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.
20:10 And the man that committeth adultery
with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his
neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put
20:11 And the man that lieth with his
father's wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness: both of them
shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
20:12 And if a man lie with his daughter in
law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought
confusion; their blood shall be upon them.
20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he
lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they
shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
20:14 And if a man take a wife and her
mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and
they; that there be no wickedness among you.
20:15 And if a man lie with a beast, he
shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.
20:16 And if a woman approach unto any
beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast:
they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
20:17 And if a man shall take his sister,
his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see her
nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they
shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his
sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.
20:18 And if a man shall lie with a woman
having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath
discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her
blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people.
20:19 And thou shalt not uncover the
nakedness of thy mother's sister, nor of thy father's sister: for he
uncovereth his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity.
20:20 And if a man shall lie with his
uncle's wife, he hath uncovered his uncle's nakedness: they shall bear
their sin; they shall die childless.
20:21 And if a man shall take his brother's
wife, it is an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother's
nakedness; they shall be childless.
20:22 Ye shall therefore keep all my
statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I
bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.
20:23 And ye shall not walk in the manners
of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all
these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
20:24 But I have said unto you, Ye shall
inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land
that floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God, which have
separated you from other people.
20:25 Ye shall therefore put difference
between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean:
and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or
by any manner of living thing that creepeth on the ground, which I
have separated from you as unclean.
20:26 And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye
should be mine.
20:27 A man also or woman that hath a
familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death:
they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.
21:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak
unto the priests the sons of Aaron, and say unto them, There shall
none be defiled for the dead among his people:
21:2 But for his kin, that is near unto
him, that is, for his mother, and for his father, and for his son, and
for his daughter, and for his brother.
21:3 And for his sister a virgin, that is
nigh unto him, which hath had no husband; for her may he be defiled.
21:4 But he shall not defile himself, being
a chief man among his people, to profane himself.
21:5 They shall not make baldness upon
their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard,
nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
21:6 They shall be holy unto their God, and
not profane the name of their God: for the offerings of the LORD made
by fire, and the bread of their God, they do offer: therefore they
shall be holy.
21:7 They shall not take a wife that is a
whore, or profane; neither shall they take a woman put away from her
husband: for he is holy unto his God.
21:8 Thou shalt sanctify him therefore; for
he offereth the bread of thy God: he shall be holy unto thee: for I the LORD, which sanctify you, am holy.
21:9 And the daughter of any priest, if she
profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she
shall be burnt with fire.
21:10 And he that is the high priest among
his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil was poured, and that
is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor
rend his clothes;
21:11 Neither shall he go in to any dead
body, nor defile himself for his father, or for his mother;
21:12 Neither shall he go out of the
sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the crown of the
anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am the LORD.
21:13 And he shall take a wife in her
21:14 A widow, or a divorced woman, or
profane, or an harlot, these shall he not take: but he shall take a
virgin of his own people to wife.
21:15 Neither shall he profane his seed
among his people: for I the LORD do sanctify him.
21:16 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
21:17 Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever
he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him
not approach to offer the bread of his God.
21:18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a
blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that
hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
21:19 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or
21:20 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that
hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his
21:21 No man that hath a blemish of the
seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer
the bread of his God.
21:22 He shall eat the bread of his God,
both of the most holy, and of the holy.
21:23 Only he shall not go in unto the vail,
nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish; that he
profane not my sanctuaries: for I the LORD do sanctify them.
21:24 And Moses told it unto Aaron, and to
his sons, and unto all the children of Israel.
22:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
22:2 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, that
they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of
Israel, and that they profane not my holy name in those things which
they hallow unto me: I am the LORD.
22:3 Say unto them, Whosoever he be of all
your seed among your generations, that goeth unto the holy things,
which the children of Israel hallow unto the LORD, having his
uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from my presence: I
am the LORD.
22:4 What man soever of the seed of Aaron
is a leper, or hath a running issue; he shall not eat of the holy
things, until he be clean. And whoso toucheth any thing that is
unclean by the dead, or a man whose seed goeth from him;
22:5 Or whosoever toucheth any creeping
thing, whereby he may be made unclean, or a man of whom he may take
uncleanness, whatsoever uncleanness he hath;
22:6 The soul which hath touched any such
shall be unclean until even, and shall not eat of the holy things,
unless he wash his flesh with water.
22:7 And when the sun is down, he shall be
clean, and shall afterward eat of the holy things; because it is his
22:8 That which dieth of itself, or is torn
with beasts, he shall not eat to defile himself therewith; I am the LORD.
22:9 They shall therefore keep mine
ordinance, lest they bear sin for it, and die therefore, if they
profane it: I the LORD do sanctify them.
22:10 There shall no stranger eat of the
holy thing: a sojourner of the priest, or an hired servant, shall not
eat of the holy thing.
22:11 But if the priest buy any soul with
his money, he shall eat of it, and he that is born in his house: they
shall eat of his meat.
22:12 If the priest's daughter also be
married unto a stranger, she may not eat of an offering of the holy
22:13 But if the priest's daughter be a
widow, or divorced, and have no child, and is returned unto her
father's house, as in her youth, she shall eat of her father's meat:
but there shall be no stranger eat thereof.
22:14 And if a man eat of the holy thing
unwittingly, then he shall put the fifth part thereof unto it, and
shall give it unto the priest with the holy thing.
22:15 And they shall not profane the holy
things of the children of Israel, which they offer unto the LORD;
22:16 Or suffer them to bear the iniquity
of trespass, when they eat their holy things: for I the LORD do
22:17 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
22:18 Speak unto Aaron, and to his sons,
and unto all the children of Israel, and say unto them, Whatsoever he
be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers in Israel, that will
offer his oblation for all his vows, and for all his freewill
offerings, which they will offer unto the LORD for a burnt offering;
22:19 Ye shall offer at your own will a
male without blemish, of the beeves, of the sheep, or of the goats.
22:20 But whatsoever hath a blemish, that
shall ye not offer: for it shall not be acceptable for you.
22:21 And whosoever offereth a sacrifice of
peace offerings unto the LORD to accomplish his vow, or a freewill
offering in beeves or sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there
shall be no blemish therein.
22:22 Blind, or broken, or maimed, or
having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, ye shall not offer these unto the LORD, nor make an offering by fire of them upon the altar unto
22:23 Either a bullock or a lamb that hath
any thing superfluous or lacking in his parts, that mayest thou offer
for a freewill offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted.
22:24 Ye shall not offer unto the LORD that
which is bruised, or crushed, or broken, or cut; neither shall ye make
any offering thereof in your land.
22:25 Neither from a stranger's hand shall
ye offer the bread of your God of any of these; because their
corruption is in them, and blemishes be in them: they shall not be
accepted for you.
22:26 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
22:27 When a bullock, or a sheep, or a
goat, is brought forth, then it shall be seven days under the dam; and
from the eighth day and thenceforth it shall be accepted for an
offering made by fire unto the LORD.
22:28 And whether it be cow, or ewe, ye
shall not kill it and her young both in one day.
22:29 And when ye will offer a sacrifice of
thanksgiving unto the LORD, offer it at your own will.
22:30 On the same day it shall be eaten up;
ye shall leave none of it until the morrow: I am the LORD.
22:31 Therefore shall ye keep my
commandments, and do them: I am the LORD.
22:32 Neither shall ye profane my holy
name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel: I am the LORD which hallow you,
22:33 That brought you out of the land of
Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD.
23:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and
say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall
proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the
seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do
no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.
23:4 These are the feasts of the LORD, even
holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
23:5 In the fourteenth day of the first
month at even is the LORD's passover.
23:6 And on the fifteenth day of the same
month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye
must eat unleavened bread.
23:7 In the first day ye shall have an holy
convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
23:8 But ye shall offer an offering made by
fire unto the LORD seven days: in the seventh day is an holy
convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
23:9 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
23:10 Speak unto the children of Israel,
and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto
you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf
of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest:
23:11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the
priest shall wave it.
23:12 And ye shall offer that day when ye
wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a
burnt offering unto the LORD.
23:13 And the meat offering thereof shall
be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by
fire unto the LORD for a sweet savour: and the drink offering thereof
shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin.
23:14 And ye shall eat neither bread, nor
parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have
brought an offering unto your God: it shall be a statute for ever
throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
23:15 And ye shall count unto you from the
morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of
the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:
23:16 Even unto the morrow after the
seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new
meat offering unto the LORD.
23:17 Ye shall bring out of your
habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals; they shall be of fine
flour; they shall be baken with leaven; they are the firstfruits unto
23:18 And ye shall offer with the bread
seven lambs without blemish of the first year, and one young bullock,
and two rams: they shall be for a burnt offering unto the LORD, with
their meat offering, and their drink offerings, even an offering made
by fire, of sweet savour unto the LORD.
23:19 Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of
the goats for a sin offering, and two lambs of the first year for a
sacrifice of peace offerings.
23:20 And the priest shall wave them with
the bread of the firstfruits for a wave offering before the LORD, with
the two lambs: they shall be holy to the LORD for the priest.
23:21 And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame
day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no
servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your
dwellings throughout your generations.
23:22 And when ye reap the harvest of your
land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field
when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy
harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I
am the LORD your God.
23:23 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel,
saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye
have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy
23:25 Ye shall do no servile work therein:
but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
23:26 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
23:27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh
month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy
convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an
offering made by fire unto the LORD.
23:28 And ye shall do no work in that same
day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before
the LORD your God.
23:29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall
not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his
23:30 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth
any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his
23:31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it
shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your
23:32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of
rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month
at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.
23:33 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
23:34 Speak unto the children of Israel,
saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of
tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD.
23:35 On the first day shall be an holy
convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
23:36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering
made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy
convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto
the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work
23:37 These are the feasts of the LORD,
which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering
made by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a
sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day:
23:38 Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and
beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your
freewill offerings, which ye give unto the LORD.
23:39 Also in the fifteenth day of the
seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye
shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be
a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.
23:40 And ye shall take you on the first
day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs
of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before
the LORD your God seven days.
23:41 And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your
generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.
23:42 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days;
all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths:
23:43 That your generations may know that I
made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them
out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
23:44 And Moses declared unto the children
of Israel the feasts of the LORD.
24:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
24:2 Command the children of Israel, that
they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the
lamps to burn continually.
24:3 Without the vail of the testimony, in
the tabernacle of the congregation, shall Aaron order it from the
evening unto the morning before the LORD continually: it shall be a
statute for ever in your generations.
24:4 He shall order the lamps upon the pure
candlestick before the LORD continually.
24:5 And thou shalt take fine flour, and
bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake.
24:6 And thou shalt set them in two rows,
six on a row, upon the pure table before the LORD.
24:7 And thou shalt put pure frankincense
upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an
offering made by fire unto the LORD.
24:8 Every sabbath he shall set it in order
before the LORD continually, being taken from the children of Israel
by an everlasting covenant.
24:9 And it shall be Aaron's and his sons';
and they shall eat it in the holy place: for it is most holy unto him
of the offerings of the LORD made by fire by a perpetual statute.
24:10 And the son of an Israelitish woman,
whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel:
and this son of the Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove
together in the camp;
24:11 And the Israelitish woman's son
blasphemed the name of the Lord, and cursed. And they brought him unto
Moses: (and his mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of
the tribe of Dan:)
24:12 And they put him in ward, that the
mind of the LORD might be shewed them.
24:13 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
24:14 Bring forth him that hath cursed
without the camp; and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his
head, and let all the congregation stone him.
24:15 And thou shalt speak unto the
children of Israel, saying, Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his
24:16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the
LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation
shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in
the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shall be put to
24:17 And he that killeth any man shall
surely be put to death.
24:18 And he that killeth a beast shall
make it good; beast for beast.
24:19 And if a man cause a blemish in his
neighbour; as he hath done, so shall it be done to him;
24:20 Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth
for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done
to him again.
24:21 And he that killeth a beast, he shall
restore it: and he that killeth a man, he shall be put to death.
24:22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as
well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God.
24:23 And Moses spake to the children of
Israel, that they should bring forth him that had cursed out of the
camp, and stone him with stones. And the children of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses.
25:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount
25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and
say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall
the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD.
25:3 Six years thou shalt sow thy field,
and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit
25:4 But in the seventh year shall be a
sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt
neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.
25:5 That which groweth of its own accord
of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy
vine undressed: for it is a year of rest unto the land.
25:6 And the sabbath of the land shall be
meat for you; for thee, and for thy servant, and for thy maid, and for
thy hired servant, and for thy stranger that sojourneth with thee.
25:7 And for thy cattle, and for the beast
that are in thy land, shall all the increase thereof be meat.
25:8 And thou shalt number seven sabbaths
of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the
seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.
25:9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of
the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day
of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.
25:10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth
year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the
inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall
return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man
unto his family.
25:11 A jubile shall that fiftieth year be
unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself
in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed.
25:12 For it is the jubile; it shall be
holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.
25:13 In the year of this jubile ye shall
return every man unto his possession.
25:14 And if thou sell ought unto thy
neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour's hand, ye shall not
oppress one another:
25:15 According to the number of years
after the jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, and according unto
the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee:
25:16 According to the multitude of years
thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of
years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number
of the years of the fruits doth he sell unto thee.
25:17 Ye shall not therefore oppress one
another; but thou shalt fear thy God:for I am the LORD your God.
25:18 Wherefore ye shall do my statutes,
and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in
25:19 And the land shall yield her fruit,
and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety.
25:20 And if ye shall say, What shall we
eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our
25:21 Then I will command my blessing upon
you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.
25:22 And ye shall sow the eighth year, and
eat yet of old fruit until the ninth year; until her fruits come in ye
shall eat of the old store.
25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever:
for the land is mine, for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.
25:24 And in all the land of your
possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.
25:25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and
hath sold away some of his possession, and if any of his kin come to
redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.
25:26 And if the man have none to redeem
it, and himself be able to redeem it;
25:27 Then let him count the years of the
sale thereof, and restore the overplus unto the man to whom he sold
it; that he may return unto his possession.
25:28 But if he be not able to restore it
to him, then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of him that
hath bought it until the year of jubile: and in the jubile it shall go
out, and he shall return unto his possession.
25:29 And if a man sell a dwelling house in
a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is
sold; within a full year may he redeem it.
25:30 And if it be not redeemed within the
space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city shall
be established for ever to him that bought it throughout his
generations: it shall not go out in the jubile.
25:31 But the houses of the villages which
have no wall round about them shall be counted as the fields of the
country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubile.
25:32 Notwithstanding the cities of the
Levites, and the houses of the cities of their possession, may the
Levites redeem at any time.
25:33 And if a man purchase of the Levites,
then the house that was sold, and the city of his possession, shall go
out in the year of jubile: for the houses of the cities of the Levites
are their possession among the children of Israel.
25:34 But the field of the suburbs of their
cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession.
25:35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and
fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he
be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.
25:36 Take thou no usury of him, or
increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.
25:37 Thou shalt not give him thy money
upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.
25:38 I am the LORD your God, which brought
you forth out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan,
and to be your God.
25:39 And if thy brother that dwelleth by
thee be waxen poor, and be sold unto thee; thou shalt not compel him
to serve as a bondservant:
25:40 But as an hired servant, and as a
sojourner, he shall be with thee, and shall serve thee unto the year
25:41 And then shall he depart from thee,
both he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own
family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return.
25:42 For they are my servants, which I
brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as
25:43 Thou shalt not rule over him with
rigour; but shalt fear thy God.
25:44 Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids,
which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about
you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids.
25:45 Moreover of the children of the
strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of
their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and
they shall be your possession.
25:46 And ye shall take them as an
inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a
possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your
brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another
25:47 And if a sojourner or stranger wax
rich by thee, and thy brother that dwelleth by him wax poor, and sell
himself unto the stranger or sojourner by thee, or to the stock of the
25:48 After that he is sold he may be
redeemed again; one of his brethren may redeem him:
25:49 Either his uncle, or his uncle's son,
may redeem him, or any that is nigh of kin unto him of his family may
redeem him; or if he be able, he may redeem himself.
25:50 And he shall reckon with him that
bought him from the year that he was sold to him unto the year of
jubile: and the price of his sale shall be according unto the number
of years, according to the time of an hired servant shall it be with
25:51 If there be yet many years behind,
according unto them he shall give again the price of his redemption
out of the money that he was bought for.
25:52 And if there remain but few years
unto the year of jubile, then he shall count with him, and according
unto his years shall he give him again the price of his redemption.
25:53 And as a yearly hired servant shall
he be with him: and the other shall not rule with rigour over him in
25:54 And if he be not redeemed in these
years, then he shall go out in the year of jubile, both he, and his
children with him.
25:55 For unto me the children of Israel
are servants; they are my servants whom I brought forth out of the
land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
26:1 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven
image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up
any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.
26:2 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and
reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.
26:3 If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my
commandments, and do them;
26:4 Then I will give you rain in due
season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the
field shall yield their fruit.
26:5 And your threshing shall reach unto
the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye
shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.
26:6 And I will give peace in the land, and
ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil
beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.
26:7 And ye shall chase your enemies, and
they shall fall before you by the sword.
26:8 And five of you shall chase an
hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and
your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.
26:9 For I will have respect unto you, and
make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant with
26:10 And ye shall eat old store, and bring
forth the old because of the new.
26:11 And I set my tabernacle among you:
and my soul shall not abhor you.
26:12 And I will walk among you, and will
be your God, and ye shall be my people.
26:13 I am the LORD your God, which brought
you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their
bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go
26:14 But if ye will not hearken unto me,
and will not do all these commandments;
26:15 And if ye shall despise my statutes,
or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my
commandments, but that ye break my covenant:
26:16 I also will do this unto you; I will
even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that
shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow
your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
26:17 And I will set my face against you,
and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall
reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.
26:18 And if ye will not yet for all this
hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your
26:19 And I will break the pride of your
power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:
26:20 And your strength shall be spent in
vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the
trees of the land yield their fruits.
26:21 And if ye walk contrary unto me, and
will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon
you according to your sins.
26:22 I will also send wild beasts among
you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle,
and make you few in number; and your high ways shall be desolate.
26:23 And if ye will not be reformed by me
by these things, but will walk contrary unto me;
26:24 Then will I also walk contrary unto
you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins.
26:25 And I will bring a sword upon you,
that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when ye are gathered
together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and
ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.
26:26 And when I have broken the staff of
your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they
shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and
not be satisfied.
26:27 And if ye will not for all this
hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me;
26:28 Then I will walk contrary unto you
also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your
26:29 And ye shall eat the flesh of your
sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.
26:30 And I will destroy your high places,
and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of
your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.
26:31 And I will make your cities waste,
and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the
savour of your sweet odours.
26:32 And I will bring the land into
desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished
26:33 And I will scatter you among the
heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be
desolate, and your cities waste.
26:34 Then shall the land enjoy her
sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies'
land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths.
26:35 As long as it lieth desolate it shall
rest; because it did not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.
26:36 And upon them that are left alive of
you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their
enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they
shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none
26:37 And they shall fall one upon another,
as it were before a sword, when none pursueth: and ye shall have no
power to stand before your enemies.
26:38 And ye shall perish among the
heathen, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.
26:39 And they that are left of you shall
pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the
iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.
26:40 If they shall confess their iniquity,
and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they
trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto
26:41 And that I also have walked contrary
unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if
then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of
the punishment of their iniquity:
26:42 Then will I remember my covenant with
Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with
Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.
26:43 The land also shall be left of them,
and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them:
and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity: because,
even because they despised my judgments, and because their soul
abhorred my statutes.
26:44 And yet for all that, when they be in
the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I
abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with
them: for I am the LORD their God.
26:45 But I will for their sakes remember
the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land
of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I am
26:46 These are the statutes and judgments
and laws, which the LORD made between him and the children of Israel
in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.
27:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
27:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and
say unto them, When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons shall
be for the LORD by thy estimation.
27:3 And thy estimation shall be of the
male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy
estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the
27:4 And if it be a female, then thy
estimation shall be thirty shekels.
27:5 And if it be from five years old even
unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty
shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
27:6 And if it be from a month old even
unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five
shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three
shekels of silver.
27:7 And if it be from sixty years old and
above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels,
and for the female ten shekels.
27:8 But if he be poorer than thy
estimation, then he shall present himself before the priest, and the
priest shall value him; according to his ability that vowed shall the
priest value him.
27:9 And if it be a beast, whereof men
bring an offering unto the LORD, all that any man giveth of such unto
the LORD shall be holy.
27:10 He shall not alter it, nor change it,
a good for a bad, or a bad for a good: and if he shall at all change
beast for beast, then it and the exchange thereof shall be holy.
27:11 And if it be any unclean beast, of
which they do not offer a sacrifice unto the LORD, then he shall
present the beast before the priest:
27:12 And the priest shall value it,
whether it be good or bad: as thou valuest it, who art the priest, so
shall it be.
27:13 But if he will at all redeem it, then
he shall add a fifth part thereof unto thy estimation.
27:14 And when a man shall sanctify his
house to be holy unto the LORD, then the priest shall estimate it,
whether it be good or bad: as the priest shall estimate it, so shall
27:15 And if he that sanctified it will
redeem his house, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of thy
estimation unto it, and it shall be his.
27:16 And if a man shall sanctify unto the LORD some part of a field of his possession, then thy estimation shall
be according to the seed thereof: an homer of barley seed shall be
valued at fifty shekels of silver.
27:17 If he sanctify his field from the
year of jubile, according to thy estimation it shall stand.
27:18 But if he sanctify his field after
the jubile, then the priest shall reckon unto him the money according
to the years that remain, even unto the year of the jubile, and it
shall be abated from thy estimation.
27:19 And if he that sanctified the field
will in any wise redeem it, then he shall add the fifth part of the
money of thy estimation unto it, and it shall be assured to him.
27:20 And if he will not redeem the field,
or if he have sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed
27:21 But the field, when it goeth out in
the jubile, shall be holy unto the LORD, as a field devoted; the
possession thereof shall be the priest's.
27:22 And if a man sanctify unto the LORD a
field which he hath bought, which is not of the fields of his
27:23 Then the priest shall reckon unto him
the worth of thy estimation, even unto the year of the jubile: and he
shall give thine estimation in that day, as a holy thing unto the LORD.
27:24 In the year of the jubile the field
shall return unto him of whom it was bought, even to him to whom the
possession of the land did belong.
27:25 And all thy estimations shall be
according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the
27:26 Only the firstling of the beasts,
which should be the LORD's firstling, no man shall sanctify it;
whether it be ox, or sheep: it is the LORD's.
27:27 And if it be of an unclean beast,
then he shall redeem it according to thine estimation, and shall add a
fifth part of it thereto: or if it be not redeemed, then it shall be
sold according to thy estimation.
27:28 Notwithstanding no devoted thing,
that a man shall devote unto the LORD of all that he hath, both of man
and beast, and of the field of his possession, shall be sold or
redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto the LORD.
27:29 None devoted, which shall be devoted
of men, shall be redeemed; but shall surely be put to death.
27:30 And all the tithe of the land,
whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD's: it is holy unto
27:31 And if a man will at all redeem ought
of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd,
or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth
shall be holy unto the LORD.
27:33 He shall not search whether it be
good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all,
then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be
27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
