He shall put no oil on it, neither shall he put any frankincense on it for it is a sin offering. 12 Then he shall bring it to the priest and the priest shall take a handful of it, for a memorial and burn it on the altar, according to the offerings made by fire to the LORD, it is a sin offering. 13 And the priest shall make an atonement for him touching his sin that he has sinned in one of these and it shall be forgiven him and the remnant shall be the priest's, as a food offering.

He shall restore it in the principal and shall add the fifth part more to it and give it to him to whom it belongs, in the day of his trespass offering. 6 And he shall bring his trespass offering to the LORD, a ram without blemish out of the flock to the priest, with your estimation, for a trespass offering. 7 And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD. and he shall be forgiven for any thing of all that he has done in trespassing.

8 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 9 Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt offering. It is the burnt offering, because of the burning on the altar all night to the morning and the fire of the altar shall be burning in it. 10 And the priest shall put on his linen garment and he shall put on his flesh his linen breeches and take up the ashes which the fire has consumed with the burnt offering on the altar and he shall put them beside the altar. 11 And he shall put off his garments and put on other garments and carry out the ashes out side the camp to a clean place. 12 And the fire on the altar shall be burning, it shall not be put out and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning and lay the burnt offering in order on it and he shall burn the fat of the peace offerings on it. 13 The fire shall be ever burning on the altar, it shall never go out.

14 And this is the law of the food offering. The sons of Aaron shall offer it before the LORD, before the altar. 15 And he shall take a handful of it, of the flour of the food offering and of the oil of it and all the frankincense which is on the food offering and shall burn it on the altar for a sweet savor, for the memorial of it, to the LORD. 16 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the remainder of it with unleavened bread. It shall be eaten in the holy place, they shall eat it in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation. 17 It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it for their portion of my offerings made by fire, it is most holy, as is the sin offering and the trespass offering. 18 All the males among the children of Aaron shall eat of it. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations concerning the offerings of the LORD made by fire. Every one who touches them shall be holy. 19 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 20 This is the offering of Aaron and of his sons, which they shall offer to the LORD in the day when he is anointed, the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a perpetual food offering, half of it in the morning and half of it at night. 21 It shall be made in a pan with oil and when it is baked, you shall bring it in and you shall offer the baked pieces of the food offering for a sweet savor to the LORD. 22 And the priests of his sons who are anointed in his place, shall offer it. It is a statute for ever to the LORD, it shall be wholly burned 23 For every food offering for the priest shall be wholly burned it shall not be eaten.

24 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 25 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin offering. In the place where the burnt offering is killed the sin offering shall be killed before the LORD, it is most holy. 26 The priest who offers it for sin shall eat it. It shall be eaten in the holy place in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation. 27 Whatever touches the flesh of it shall be holy and when the blood of it is sprinkled on any garment, you shall wash that on which it was sprinkled in the holy place. 28 But the earthen vessel in which it is soaked shall be broken and if it is soaked in a brazen pot, it shall be both scoured and rinsed in water. 29 All the males among the priests shall eat of it, it is most holy. 30 But no sin offering, of which any of the blood is brought into the tabernacle of the congregation to reconcile anything in the holy place shall be eaten, it shall be burned in the fire.

1 Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering. It is most holy. 2 In the place where they kill the burnt offering they shall kill the trespass offering and he shall sprinkle its blood around on the altar 3 And he shall offer all its fat. The rump and the fat that covers the inwards 4 And the two kidneys and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks and he shall take away the covering that is above the liver, with the kidneys 5 And the priest shall burn them on the altar for an offering made by fire to the LORD, it is a trespass offering. 6 Every male among the priests shall eat of it, it shall be eaten in the holy place, it is most holy. 7 As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering. There is one law for them. The priest who makes atonement with it shall have it. 8 And the priest who offers any man's burnt offering, the priest shall have the skin of the burnt offering which he has offered for himself. 9 And all the food offering that is baked in the oven and all that is dressed in the frying pan and in the pan, shall be the priest's who offers it. 10 And every food offering, mingled with oil and dry, shall all the sons of Aaron have, one as much as another.

11 And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he shall offer to the LORD. 12 If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving, unleavened cakes mingled with oil and unleavened wafers anointed with oil and cakes mingled with oil of fine fried flour. 13 Besides the cakes, he shall offer leavened bread for his offering with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings 14 And from it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for a heave offering to the LORD and it shall be the priest's who sprinkles the blood of the peace offerings. 15 And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day that it is offered, he shall not leave any of it until the morning. 16 But if the sacrifice of his offering is a vow, or a voluntary offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offers his sacrifice and on the next morning also the remainder of it shall be eaten 17 But on the third day the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice shall be burned with fire. 18 And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings is eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed to him who offers it. It shall be an abomination and the soul who eats of it shall bear his iniquity. 19 And the flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten, it shall be burned with fire and as for the flesh, all who are clean shall eat of it. 20 But the soul who eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings that pertain to the LORD, having his uncleanness on him, even that soul shall be cut off from his people. 21 Moreover the soul who shall touch any unclean thing, as the uncleanness of man or any unclean animal or any abominable unclean thing and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which pertains to the LORD, even that soul shall be cut off from his people. 22 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 23 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, you shall eat no manner of fat, of oxen or of sheep or of goats. 24 And the fat of the beast that dies of itself and the fat of that which is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use but you shall in no way eat it. 25 For whoever eats the fat of the animal, from which men offer an offering made by fire to the LORD, even the soul who eats it shall be cut off from his people. 26 Also you shall eat no manner of blood in any of your dwellings, whether it is of fowl or of animal. 27 Whatever soul who eats any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people. 28 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 29 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, He who offers the sacrifice of his peace offerings to the LORD shall bring his oblation to the LORD from the sacrifice of his peace offerings. 30 His own hands shall bring the offerings of the LORD made by fire, the fat with the breast, he shall bring it so that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before the LORD. 31 And the priest shall burn the fat on the altar. but the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'. 32 And you shall give the right shoulder to the priest for a heave offering from the sacrifices of your peace offerings. 33 He among the sons of Aaron, who offers the blood of the peace offerings and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part. 34 For I have taken from the children of Israel the wave breast and the heave shoulder from the sacrifices of their peace offerings and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons by a statute for ever among the children of Israel.

35 This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in the day when he presented them to minister to the LORD in the priest's office, 36 Which the LORD commanded to be given to them from the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever throughout their generations. 37 This is the law of the burnt offering, of the food offering and of the sin offering and of the trespass offering and of the consecrations and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings, 38 Which the LORD commanded Moses in Mount Sinai, in the day that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations to the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai.

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Take Aaron and his sons with him and the garments and the anointing oil and a bullock for the sin offering and two rams and a basket of unleavened bread, 3 And gather all the congregation together to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 4 And Moses did as The LORD commanded him and the assembly was gathered together at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 5 And Moses said to the congregation, This is what the LORD commanded to be done. 6 And Moses brought Aaron and his sons and washed them with water. 7 And he put the coat on him and girded him with the girdle and clothed him with the robe and put the ephod on him and he girded him with the unique girdle of the ephod and with it bound all to him. 8 And he put the breastplate on him. also he put in the breastplate the Urim and the Thummim. 9 And he put the miter on his head, also on the miter, even on its forefront, he put the golden plate, the holy crown, as the LORD commanded Moses. 10 And Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it and sanctified them. 11 And he sprinkled from it on the altar seven times and anointed the altar and all its vessels, both the laver and its base, to sanctify them. 12 And he poured from the anointing oil on Aaron's head and anointed him, to sanctify him. 13 And Moses brought Aaron's sons and put coats on them and girded them with girdles and put bonnets on them, as the LORD commanded Moses.

14 And he brought the bullock for the sin offering and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the bullock for the sin offering. 15 And he killed it and Moses took the blood and put it around the horns of the altar with his finger and purified the altar and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar and sanctified it, to make reconciliation on it. 16 And he took all the fat that was on the inwards and the covering above the liver and the two kidneys and their fat and Moses burned it on the altar. 17 But the bullock and his hide, his flesh and his dung, he burned with fire out side the camp, as the LORD commanded Moses. 18 And he brought the ram for the burnt offering and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram 19 And he killed it and Moses sprinkled the blood around the altar. 20 And he cut the ram in pieces and Moses burnt the head and the pieces and the fat 21 And he washed the inwards and the legs in water and Moses burnt the whole ram on the altar. It was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet savor and an offering made by fire to the LORD, as the LORD commanded Moses. 22 And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram 23 And he killed it and Moses took of its blood and put it on the tip of Aaron's right ear and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot 24 And he brought Aaron's sons and Moses put from the blood on the tip of their right ear and on the thumbs of their right hands and on the great toes of their right feet and Moses sprinkled the blood around the altar. 25 And he took the fat and the rump and all the fat that was on the inwards and the covering above the liver and the two kidneys and their fat and the right shoulder. 26 And out of the basket of unleavened bread that was before the LORD, he took one unleavened cake and a cake of oiled bread and one wafer and put them on the fat and on the right shoulder 27 And he put all on Aaron's hands and on his sons' hands and waved them for a wave offering before the LORD. 28 And Moses took them from their hands and burned them on the altar on the burnt offering, they were consecrations for a sweet savor. It is an offering made by fire to the LORD. 29 And Moses took the breast and waved it for a wave offering before the LORD from the ram of consecration, it was Moses' part, as the LORD commanded Moses. 30 And Moses took of the anointing oil and of the blood which was on the altar and sprinkled it on Aaron and on his garments and on his sons and on his sons' garments with him and sanctified Aaron and his garments and his sons and his sons' garments with him.

31 And Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. and there eat it with the bread that is in the basket of consecrations, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it. 32 And that which remains of the flesh and of the bread you shall burn with fire. 33 And you shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation for seven days, until the days of your consecration are at an end. He shall consecrate you for seven days. 34 As he has done this day, so the LORD has commanded to do, to make an atonement for you. 35 Therefore you shall abide at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days and keep the charge of the LORD so that you do not die for so I am commanded. 36 So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

1 And on the eighth day Moses called Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel 2 And he said to Aaron, Take a young calf for a sin offering and a ram without blemish for a burnt offering and offer them before the LORD. 3 And you shall speak to the children of Israel, saying, Take a kid of the goats for a sin offering and a calf and a lamb of the first year, without blemish for a burnt offering, 4 Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the LORD and a food offering mingled with oil for today the LORD will appear to you. 5 And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation and all the congregation drew near and stood before the LORD. 6 And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commanded that you should do and the glory of the LORD shall appear to you. 7 And Moses said to Aaron, Go to the altar and offer your sin offering and your burnt offering and make an atonement for yourself and for the people and offer the offering of the people and make an atonement for them as the LORD commanded.

8 Aaron therefore went to the altar and killed the calf of the sin offering for himself. 9 And the sons of Aaron brought the blood to him and he dipped his finger in the blood and put it on the horns of the altar and poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar. 10 But the fat and the kidneys and the covering above the liver of the sin offering, he burned on the altar, as the LORD commanded Moses. 11 And the flesh and the hide he burned with fire outside the camp. 12 And he killed the burnt offering and Aaron's sons presented to him the blood, which he sprinkled round about on the altar. 13 And they presented the burnt offering to him, with the pieces of it and the head and he burned them on the altar. 14 And he washed the inwards and the legs and burned them on the burnt offering on the altar. 15 And he brought the people's offering and took the goat, which was the sin offering for the people and killed it and offered it for sin, as the first 16 And he brought the burnt offering and offered it according to the manner. 17 And he brought the food offering and took a handful of it and burned it on the altar, beside the burnt sacrifice of the morning. 18 He also killed the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings, which was for the people and Aaron's sons presented the blood to him, which he sprinkled around the altar 19 And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump and that which covers the inwards and the kidneys and the covering above the liver. 20 And they put the fat on the breasts and he burned the fat on the altar. 21 And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave offering before the LORD, as Moses commanded. 22 And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people and blessed them and came down from offering the sin offering and the burnt offering and peace offerings.

23 And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation and came out and blessed the people and the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people. 24 And fire came out from before the LORD and consumed the burnt offering and the fat on the altar, and when all the people saw it, they shouted and fell on their faces.

Chapter 10

1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, both of them took his censer and put fire in it and put incense on it and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he did not command them. 2 And fire went out from the LORD and devoured them and they died before the LORD.

3 Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the LORD spoke, saying, I will be sanctified in them who come near me and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace. 4 And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron and said to them, Come near, carry your brothers from before the sanctuary out of the camp. 5 So they went near and carried them in their coats out of the camp, as Moses had said. 6 And Moses said to Aaron and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons, Do not uncover your heads, neither tear your clothes, lest you die and lest wrath come on all the people but let your brothers, the whole house of Israel, wail the burning which the LORD has kindled. 7 And you shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, lest you die for the anointing oil of the LORD is on you. And they did according to the word of Moses.

8 And the LORD spoke to Aaron, saying, 9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, you nor your sons with you, when you go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest you die. It shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations. 10 And so that you may put difference between holy and unholy and between unclean and clean, 11 And that you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD has spoken to them by the hand of Moses.

12 And Moses spoke to Aaron and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons who were left, Take the food offering that remains of the offerings of the LORD made by fire and eat it without leaven beside the altar for it is most holy. 13 And you shall eat it in the holy place because it is your due and your sons' due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire for so I have been commanded. 14 And you shall eat the wave breast and heave shoulder in a clean place, you and your sons and your daughters with you for it is your due and your sons' due, which is given out of the sacrifices of peace offerings of the children of Israel. 15 They shall bring the heave shoulder and the wave breast with the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering before the LORD and it shall be yours and your sons' with you, by a statute for ever, as the LORD has commanded. 16 And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering and, behold, it was burned and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron who were left alive, saying, 17 Why have you not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy and God has given it to you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the LORD? 18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place. You should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded. 19 And Aaron said to Moses, Behold, this day they have offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the LORD and such things have befallen me and if I had eaten the sin offering today, would it have been accepted in the sight of the LORD? 20 And when Moses heard that, he was content.

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying to them, 2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, These are the animals which you shall eat among all the animals that are on the earth. 3 You shall eat whatever parts the hoof and is cloven footed and chews the cud among the animals. 4 You shall not eat those that chew the cud or those that divide the hoof as the camel, because he chews the cud, but does not divide the hoof, he is unclean to you. 5 And the rabbit, because he chews the cud, but does not divide the hoof, he is unclean to you. 6 And the hare, because he chews the cud, but does not divide the hoof, he is unclean to you. 7 And the swine, though he divides the hoof and is cloven footed, yet he does not chew the cud, he is unclean to you. 8 You shall not eat of their flesh and you shall not touch their carcase, they are unclean to you.

9 Of all that are in the waters, you shall eat whatever has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas and in the rivers, you shall eat them. 10 And all that do not have fins and scales in the seas and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination to you. 11 They shall be even an abomination to you, you shall not eat of their flesh but you shall have their carcases in abomination. 12 Whatever has no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination to you. 13 And these are they which you shall have in abomination among the fowl, they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination, the eagle and the ossifrage and the osprey 14 And the vulture and the kite after his kind, 15 Every raven after his kind 16 And the owl and the night hawk and the cuckoo and the hawk after his kind 17 And the little owl and the cormorant and the great owl 18 And the swan and the pelican and the gier eagle 19 And the stork, the heron after her kind and the lapwing and the bat.

20 All fowls that creep, going on all fours, shall be an abomination to you. 21 Yet you may eat of these, every flying creeping thing that goes on all fours, which have legs above their feet, to leap with on the earth, 22 Even these you may eat of them, the locust after his kind and the bald locust after his kind and the beetle after his kind and the grasshopper after his kind 23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination to you. 24 And you shall be unclean for these. whoever touches the carcase of them shall be unclean until the evening. 25 And whoever bears anything of the carcase of them shall wash his clothes and is unclean until the evening. 26 The carcases of every animal which divides the hoof and is not cloven footed nor chews the cud, are unclean to you. Every one who touches them shall be unclean. 27 And whatever goes on its paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all fours, those are unclean to you. whoever touches their carcase shall be unclean until the evening. 28 And he who bears the carcase of them shall wash his clothes and is unclean until the evening. They are unclean to you. 29 These also shall be unclean to you among the creeping things that creep on the earth, the weasel and the mouse and the tortoise after his kind 30 And the ferret and the chameleon and the lizard and the snail and the mole. 31 These are unclean to you among all that creep, whoever touches them, when they are dead, shall be unclean until the evening. 32 And on whatever any of them shall fall when they are dead, it shall be unclean, whether it is any vessel of wood or raiment or skin or sack, whatever vessel it is, in which any work is done, it must be put into water and it shall be unclean until the evening, so it shall be cleansed. 33 And every earthen vessel, in which any of them falls, whatever is in it shall be unclean and you shall break it. 34 Of all food which may be eaten, on which such water comes shall be unclean and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean. 35 And every thing on which any part of their carcase falls shall be unclean, whether it is an oven or ranges for pots, they shall be broken down for they are unclean and shall be unclean to you. 36 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, in which there is plenty of water, shall be clean but that which touches their carcase shall be unclean. 37 And if any part of their carcase falls on any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean. 38 But if any water is put on the seed and any part of their carcase fall on it, it shall be unclean to you. 39 And if any animal, of which you may eat dies, he who touches the carcase of it shall be unclean until the evening. 40 And he who eats of the carcase of it shall wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening. Also he who bears the carcase of it shall wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening. 41 And every creeping thing that creeps on the earth shall be an abomination, it shall not be eaten. 42 Whatever goes on the belly and whatever goes on all fours or whatever has more feet among all creeping things that creep on the earth, you shall not eat them for they are an abomination.

43 You shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creeps, neither shall you make yourselves unclean with them so that you should be defiled. 44 For I am the LORD your God. You shall therefore sanctify yourselves and you shall be holy for I am holy, neither shall you defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creeps on the earth. 45 For I am the LORD who is bringing you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. Therefore you shall be holy for I am holy. 46 This is the law of the beasts and of the fowl and of every living creature that moves in the waters and of every creature that creeps on the earth. 47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean and between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten.

Chapter 13

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 2 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab or bright spot and it is in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy, then he shall be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons the priests. 3 And the priest shall look at the plague in the skin of the flesh. and when the hair in the plague is turned white and the plague in sight is deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy and the priest shall look at him and pronounce him unclean. 4 If the bright spot is white in the skin of his flesh and in sight is not deeper than the skin and the hair of it is not turned white, then the priest shall shut him up who has the plague seven days. 5 And the priest shall look at him on the seventh day and, behold, if the plague in his sight is at a stay and the plague has not spread in the skin, then the priest shall shut him up seven more days. 6 And the priest shall look at him again on the seventh day and behold, if the plague is somewhat dark and the plague has not spread in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean, it is a scab and he shall wash his clothes and be clean. 7 But if the scab has spread much abroad in the skin, after that he has been seen by the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen of the priest again. 8 And if the priest sees that, behold, the scab spreads in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean, it is a leprosy. 9 When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought to the priest 10 And the priest shall see him. and, behold, if the rising is white in the skin and it has turned the hair white and there is quick raw flesh in the rising, 11 It is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh and the priest shall pronounce him unclean and shall not shut him up for he is unclean. 12 And if a leprosy break out abroad in the skin and the leprosy cover all the skin of him who has the plague from his head even to his foot, wherever the priest looks, 13 Then the priest shall consider and, behold, if the leprosy has covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean who has the plague. it is all turned white, he is clean. 14 But when raw flesh appears in him, he shall be unclean. 15 And the priest shall see the raw flesh and pronounce him to be unclean for the raw flesh is unclean. It is a leprosy. 16 Or if the raw flesh returns again and is changed to white, he shall come to the priest, 17 And the priest shall see him and, behold, if the plague is turned into white, then the priest shall pronounce him clean who has the plague, he is clean.

18 The flesh also, in which in its skin was a boil and is healed, 19 And in the place of the boil there is a white rising or a bright spot, white and somewhat reddish and it is shown to the priest 20 And if, when the priest sees it, behold, it is slightly lower than the skin and the hair of it is turned white, the priest shall pronounce him unclean. It is a plague of leprosy broken out of the boil 21 But if the priest looks at it and, behold, there are no white hairs in it and if it is not lower than the skin but is somewhat dark, then the priest shall shut him up seven days 22 And if it spreads much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean, it is a plague. 23 But if the bright spot stay in his place and does not spread, it is a burning boil and the priest shall pronounce him clean 24 Or if there is any flesh, in the skin where there is a hot burning and the quick flesh that burns has a white bright spot, somewhat reddish or white, 25 Then the priest shall look at it. and, behold, if the hair in the bright spot is turned white and it is in sight deeper than the skin, it is a leprosy broken out of the burning. Therefore the priest shall pronounce him unclean, it is the plague of leprosy. 26 But if the priest looks at it and, behold, there are no white hair in the bright spot and it is not lower than the skin but is somewhat dark, then the priest shall shut him up seven days 27 And the priest shall look at him on the seventh day and if it is much spread abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean, it is the plague of leprosy. 28 And if the bright spot stays in its place and is not spread in the skin but it is somewhat dark, it is a rising of the burning and the priest shall pronounce him clean for it is an inflammation of the burning. 29 If a man or woman has a plague on the head or the beard 30 Then the priest shall see the plague and behold, if it is in sight deeper than the skin and there is in it a yellow thin hair, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean, it is a dry scale, a leprosy on the head or beard. 31 And if the priest looks at the plague of the scale and, behold, it is not in sight deeper than the skin and there is no black hair in it then the priest shall shut him up who has the plague of the scale seven days. 32 And in the seventh day the priest shall look at the plague and, behold, if the scale does not spread and there is no yellow hair in it and the scale is not in sight deeper than the skin, 33 He shall be shaved but he shall not shave the scale and the priest shall shut him up who has the scale seven more days. 34 And in the seventh day the priest shall look at the scale and, behold, if the scale is not spread in the skin nor is in sight deeper than the skin then the priest shall pronounce him clean. and he shall wash his clothes and is clean. 35 But if the scale spreads much in the skin after his cleansing, 36 Then the priest shall look at him and, behold, if the scale is spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for yellow hair, he is unclean. 37 But if the scale is in his sight at a stay and there is black hair grown up in it, the scale is healed, he is clean and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

38 Also if a man or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright spots, even white bright spots, 39 Then the priest shall look and, behold, if the bright spots in the skin of their flesh is darkish white, it is a freckled spot that grows in the skin, he is clean. 40 And the man whose hair has fallen off his head, he is bald, he is clean. 41 And he who has his hair fallen off from the part of his head toward his face, he is forehead bald, he is clean. 42 And if there is in the bald head or bald forehead, a white reddish sore, it is a leprosy sprung up in his bald head or his bald forehead. 43 Then the priest shall look at it and, behold, if the rising of the sore is white reddish in his bald head or in his bald forehead, as the leprosy appears in the skin of the flesh, 44 He is a leprous man, he is unclean. The priest shall pronounce him utterly unclean, his plague is in his head 45 And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be torn and his head bare and he shall put a covering on his upper lip and shall cry, Unclean, unclean. 46 All the days in which the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled, he is unclean he shall dwell alone, his habitation shall be out side the camp.

47 The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it is a wool garment or a linen garment, 48 Whether it is in the weave or interweave, of linen or of wool, whether in a skin or in any thing made of skin, 49 And if the plague is greenish or reddish in the garment or in the skin, either in the weave or in the interweave or in any thing of skin, it is a plague of leprosy and shall be shown to the priest. 50 And the priest shall look at the plague and shut him up who has the plague seven days. 51 And he shall look at the plague on the seventh day, if the plague is spread in the garment, either in the weave or in the interweave or in a skin or in any work that is made of skin, the plague is a pain causing leprosy, it is unclean. 52 He shall therefore burn that garment, whether weave or interweave, in wool or in linen or any thing of skin, in which the plague is for it is a pain causing leprosy, it shall be burned in the fire. 53 And if the priest shall look and, behold, the plague is not spread in the garment, either in the weave or in the interweave or in any thing of skin, 54 Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing in which the plague is and he shall shut it up seven more days. 55 And the priest shall look at the plague, after it is washed and, behold, if the plague has not changed its color and the plague is not spread, it is unclean, you shall burn it in the fire, if it is pitted, whether it is bare within or without. 56 And if the priest looks and, behold, the plague is somewhat dark after the washing of it, then he shall tear it out of the garment or out of the skin or out of the weave or out of the interweave. 57 And if it still appears in the garment, either in the weave or in the interweave or in any thing of skin, it is a spreading plague. You shall burn that in which the plague is with fire. 58 And the garment, either weave or interweave or whatever thing of skin it is, which you shall wash, if the plague is departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time and shall be clean. 59 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of wool or linen, either in the weave or interweave or any thing of skins, to pronounce it clean or to pronounce it unclean.

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing. He shall be brought to the priest. 3 And the priest shall go forth out of the camp and the priest shall look and, behold, if the plague of leprosy is healed in the leper 4 Then the priest shall command to take for him who is to be cleansed two clean live birds and cedar wood and scarlet and hyssop. 5 And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water. 6 As for the living bird, he shall take it and the cedar wood and the scarlet and the hyssop and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water. 7 And he shall sprinkle on him who is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times and shall pronounce him clean and shall let the living bird loose into the open field. 8 And he who is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes and shave off all his hair and wash himself in water so that he may be clean and after that he shall come into the camp and shall wait abroad out of his tent seven days 9 But it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair from his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall shave off and he shall wash his clothes, he shall also wash his flesh in water and he shall be clean.

10 And on the eighth day he shall take two male lambs without blemish and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish and three tenth deals of fine flour for a food offering, mingled with oil and one pint of oil. 11 And the priest who makes him clean shall present the man who is to be made clean and those things, before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation 12 And the priest shall take one male lamb and offer him for a trespass offering and the pint of oil and wave them for a wave offering before the LORD. 13 And he shall kill the lamb in the place where he shall kill the sin offering and the burnt offering, in the holy place for as the sin offering is the priest's, so is the trespass offering, it is most holy. 14 And the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering and the priest shall put it on the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot. 15 And the priest shall take some of the pint of oil and pour it into the palm of his own left hand 16 And the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left hand and shall sprinkle of the oil with his finger seven times before the LORD. 17 And of the rest of the oil that is in his hand the priest shall put on the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot, on the blood of the trespass offering. 18 And the remnant of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall pour on the head of him who is to be cleansed and the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD. 19 And the priest shall offer the sin offering and make an atonement for him who is to be cleansed from his uncleanness and afterward he shall kill the burnt offering. 20 And the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the food offering on the altar and the priest shall make an atonement for him and he shall be clean.

21 And if he is poor and can not get so much, then he shall take one lamb for a trespass offering to be waved, to make an atonement for him and one tenth deal of fine flour mingled with oil for a food offering and a pint of oil 22 And two turtle doves or two young pigeons, such as he is able to get and the one shall be a sin offering and the other a burnt offering. 23 And he shall bring them on the eighth day for his cleansing to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, before the LORD. 24 And the priest shall take the lamb of the trespass offering and the pint of oil and the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before The LORD. 25 And he shall kill the lamb of the trespass offering and the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering and put it on the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot 26 And the priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his own left hand. 27 And the priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil that is in his left hand seven times before the LORD. 28 And the priest shall put of the oil that is in his hand on the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot, on the place of the blood of the trespass offering. 29 And the rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall put on the head of him who is to be cleansed, to make an atonement for him before the LORD. 30 And he shall offer one of the turtle doves or of the young pigeons, such as he can get, 31 Even such as he is able to get, the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering, with the food offering and the priest shall make an atonement for him who is to be cleansed before the LORD. 32 This is the law of him in whom is the plague of leprosy, whose hand is not able to get that which pertains to his cleansing.

33 And the LORD spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 34 When you have come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession, 35 And he who owns the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, It seems to me there is perhaps a plague in the house. 36 Then the priest shall command that they empty the house, before the priest goes into it to see the plague, that all that is in the house is not made unclean and afterward the priest shall go in to see the house. 37 And he shall look at the plague and, behold, if the plague is in the walls of the house with depressions, greenish or reddish, which in sight are lower than the wall, 38 Then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house and shut up the house seven days. 39 And the priest shall come again the seventh day and shall look and, behold, if the plague is spread in the walls of the house, 40 Then the priest shall command that they take away the stones in which the plague is and they shall cast them into an unclean place out side the city. 41 And he shall cause the house to be scraped within around and they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off out side the city into an unclean place. 42 And they shall take other stones and put them in the place of those stones and he shall take other mortar and shall plaster the house. 43 And if the plague comes again and breaks out in the house, after he has taken away the stones and after he has scraped the house and after it is plastered, 44 Then the priest shall come and look and, behold, if the plague is spread in the house, it is an ulcer causing leprosy in the house, it is unclean. 45 And he shall break down the house and its stones and the timber and all the mortar of the house and he shall carry them out of the city to an unclean place. 46 Moreover he who goes into the house all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the evening. 47 And he who lies in the house shall wash his clothes and he who eats in the house shall wash his clothes. 48 And if the priest shall come in and look on it and, behold, the plague has not spread in the house, after the house was plastered. then the priest shall pronounce the house clean because the plague is healed. 49 And he shall take two birds and cedar wood and scarlet and hyssop to cleanse the house. 50 And he shall kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water. 51 And he shall take the cedar wood and the hyssop and the scarlet and the living bird and dip them in the blood of the slain bird and in the running water and sprinkle the house seven times. 52 And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird and with the running water and with the living bird and with the cedar wood and with the hyssop and with the scarlet. 53 But he shall let the living bird go out of the city into the open fields and make an atonement for the house. and it shall be clean.

54 This is the law for all manner of plagues of leprosy and scale 55 And for the leprosy of a garment and of a house 56 And for a rising and for a scab and for a bright spot, 57 To teach when it is unclean and when it is clean, this is the law of leprosy.

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, When any man has a running issue out of his flesh he is unclean because of his issue. 3 And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue, whether his flesh runs with his issue or his flesh is stopped from his issue, it is his uncleanness. 4 Every bed, where he lies who has the issue, is unclean and every thing, where he sits, shall be unclean. 5 And whoever touches his bed shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and is unclean until the evening. 6 And he who sits on any thing where he sat who has the issue shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until the evening. 7 And he who touches the flesh of him who has the issue shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until the evening. 8 And if he who has the issue spits on him who is clean, then he shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until the evening. 9 And whatever saddle he rides on who has the issue shall be unclean. 10 And whoever touches any thing that was under him shall be unclean until the evening and he who bears any of those things shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until the evening. 11 And whomever he touches who has the issue and has not rinsed his hands in water, he shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until the evening. 12 And the vessel of earth, that he touches which has the issue, shall be broken and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water. 13 And when he who has an issue is cleansed of his issue, then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing and wash his clothes and bathe his flesh in running water and shall be clean. 14 And on the eighth day he shall take two turtle doves to him or two young pigeons and come before the LORD to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation and give them to the priest. 15 And the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering and the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD for his issue. 16 And if any man's seminal seed goes out from him, then he shall wash all his flesh in water and be unclean until the evening. 17 And every garment and every skin, on which the seminal seed is, shall be washed with water and be unclean until the evening. 18 The woman and the man who lie together and touch seminal seed shall bathe in water and be unclean until the evening.

19 And if a woman has an issue and her issue in her flesh is blood, she shall be set apart seven days and whoever touches her shall be unclean until the evening. 20 And every thing that she lies on in her separation shall be unclean. every thing also that she sits on shall be unclean. 21 And whoever touches her bed shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until the evening. 22 And whoever touches any thing that she sat on shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until the evening. 23 And if it is on her bed or on any thing where she sits, when he touches it, he shall be unclean until the evening. 24 And if any man lies with her at all and her impurities are on him, he shall be unclean seven days and all the bed where he lies shall be unclean. 25 And if a woman has an issue of her blood many days out of the time of her separation or if it runs beyond the time of her separation, all the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as the days of her separation. she shall be unclean. 26 Every bed where she lies all the days of her issue shall be to her as the bed of her separation and whatever she sits on shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her separation. 27 And whoever touches those things shall be unclean and shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until the evening. 28 But if she is cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself seven days and after that she shall be clean. 29 And on the eighth day she shall take two turtle doves or two young pigeons and bring them to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 30 And the priest shall offer one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering and the priest shall make an atonement for her before the LORD for the issue of her uncleanness. 31 Thus you shall separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness so that they do not die in their uncleanness, when they defile my tabernacle which is among them. 32 This is the law of him who has an issue and of him whose seed goes from him and is defiled 33 And of her who is sick of her impurities and of him who has an issue, of the man and of the woman and of him who lies with her who is unclean.

Chapter 16

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the LORD and died, 2 And the LORD said to Moses, Speak to Aaron your brother that he shall not come at all times into the holy place within the veil before the mercy seat, which is on the ark so that he does not die for I will appear in the cloud on the mercy seat. 3 Thus Aaron shall come into the holy place with a young bullock for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering. 4 He shall put on the holy linen coat and he shall have the linen breeches on his flesh and shall be girded with a linen girdle and he shall be attired with the linen miter. These are holy garments, therefore he shall wash his flesh in water and put them on.

5 And he shall take two kids of the goats for a sin offering and one ram for a burnt offering from the congregation of the children of Israel. 6 And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself and make an atonement for himself and for his house. 7 And he shall take the two goats and present them before the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 8 And Aaron shall cast lots on the two goats, one lot for the LORD and the other lot for the scapegoat. 9 And Aaron shall bring the goat on which the LORD'S lot fell and offer it for a sin offering 10 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness. 11 And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself and shall make an atonement for himself and for his house and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself. 12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the LORD and his hands shall be full of sweet incense beaten small and he shall bring it within the veil 13 And he shall put the incense on the fire before the LORD so that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is on the ark of testimony so that he will not die. 14 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock and sprinkle it with his finger on the mercy seat eastward and he shall sprinkle of the blood with his finger before the mercy seat seven times.

15 Then he shall kill the goat of the sin offering that is for the people and bring his blood within the veil and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock and sprinkle it on the mercy seat and before the mercy seat. 16 And he shall make an atonement for the holy place because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel and because of their transgressions in all their sins and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation that remains among them in the midst of their uncleanness. 17 And no man shall be there when he goes in to make an atonement in the holy place in the tabernacle of the congregation, until he comes out and has made an atonement for himself and for his household and for all the congregation of Israel. 18 And he shall go out to the altar that is before The LORD and make an atonement for it and shall take of the blood of the bullock and of the blood of the goat and put it on the horns around the altar. 19 And he shall sprinkle of the blood on it with his finger seven times and cleanse it and hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel.

20 And when he has made an end of reconciling the holy place and the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, he shall bring the live goat 21 And Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness. 22 And the goat shall bear on him all their iniquities to a uninhabited land and he shall let the goat go into the wilderness. 23 And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place and shall leave them there. 24 And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place and put on his garments and come out and offer his burnt offering and the burnt offering of the people and make an atonement for himself and for the people. 25 And he shall burn the fat of the sin offering on the altar. 26 And he who let the goat go for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes and bathe his flesh in water and afterward come into the camp. 27 And the bullock for the sin offering and the goat for the sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry outside the camp and they shall burn their skins in the fire and their flesh and their dung. 28 And he who burns them shall wash his clothes and bathe his flesh in water and afterward he shall come into the camp.

29 And this shall be a statute for ever to you. that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls and do no work at all, whether it is one of your own country or a stranger who sojourns among you. 30 For on that day the priest shall make an atonement for you, to cleanse you so that you may be clean from all your sins before the LORD. 31 It shall be a sabbath of rest for you and you shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever. 32 And the priest, whom he shall anoint and whom he shall consecrate to minister in the priest's office in his father's place, shall make the atonement and shall put on the linen clothes, even the holy garments. 33 And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary and he shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the congregation and for the altar and he shall make an atonement for the priests and for all the people of the congregation. 34 And this shall be an everlasting statute for you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And he did as The LORD commanded Moses.

Chapter 17

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to Aaron and to his sons and to all the children of Israel and say to them, This is the thing which the LORD has commanded, saying, 3 Whatever man is of the house of Israel, who kills an ox or lamb or goat, in the camp or who kills it out of the camp, 4 And does not bring it to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer an offering to the LORD before the tabernacle of the LORD, blood shall be imputed to that man, he has shed blood and that man shall be cut off from among his people. 5 To the end that the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices, which they offer in the open field, even that they may bring them to the LORD, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to the priest and offer them for peace offerings to the LORD. 6 And the priest shall sprinkle the blood on the altar of the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation and burn the fat for a sweet savor to the LORD. 7 And they shall not offer their sacrifices to demons after whom they had gone whoring anymore. This shall be a statute for ever to them throughout their generations. 8 And you shall say to them, Whatever man of the house of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among you, who offers a burnt offering or sacrifice 9 And does not bring it to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer it to the LORD, even that man shall be cut off from among his people.

10 And whatever man of the house of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among you eats any manner of blood, I will even set my face against that soul who eats blood and will cut him off from among his people. 11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood and I have given it to you on the altar to make an atonement for your souls for it is the blood that makes an atonement for the soul. 12 Therefore I said to the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger who sojourns among you eat blood. 13 And whatever man of the children of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among you hunts and catches any animal or fowl that may be eaten, he shall pour out the blood of it and cover it with dust. 14 For it is the life of all flesh, its blood is its life. Therefore I said to the children of Israel, you shall not eat the blood of any manner of flesh for the life of all flesh is its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off. 15 And every soul that eats that which died of itself or that which was torn by animals, whether it is one of your own country or a stranger, he shall both wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until the evening then he shall be clean. 16 But if he does not wash his clothes nor bathe his flesh, then he shall bear his iniquity.

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, I am the LORD your God. 3 You shall not do after the practices of the land of Egypt in which you dwelled or after the practices of the land of Canaan where I am bringing you. You shall not do nor walk in their ordinances. 4 You shall do my judgments and keep my ordinances and walk in them. I am the LORD your God. 5 You shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments which if a man does, he shall live in them. I am the LORD.

6 None of you shall approach, to uncover the nakedness of any who is a near kin to him. I am the LORD. 7 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother. She is your mother, you shall not uncover her nakedness. 8 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's wife. It is your father's nakedness. 9 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father or daughter of your mother, even their nakedness whether she is born at home or born abroad. 10 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your son's daughter or of your daughter's daughter, even their nakedness for theirs is your own nakedness. 11 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's wife's daughter, begotten of your father, she is your sister. 12 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's sister. She is your father's near kinswoman. 13 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother's sister for she is your mother's near kinswoman. 14 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's brother, you shall not approach to his wife. She is your aunt. 15 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter in law. She is your son's wife, you shall not uncover her nakedness. 16 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother's wife. It is your brother's nakedness. 17 You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shall you take her son's daughter or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness for they are her near kinswomen. it is wickedness. 18 Neither shall you take a wife of her sister to uncover her nakedness beside the other in her life time to vex her.

19 Also you shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness. 20 Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor's wife, to defile yourself with her. 21 And you shall not let any of your seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shall you profane the name of your God. I am the LORD. 22 You shall not lie with men, as with women. It is abomination. 23 Neither shall you lie with any animal to defile yourself with it. Neither shall any woman stand before an animal to lie down to it. It is confusion. 24 Do not defile yourselves in any of these things for in all these the nations which I cast out before you are defiled. 25 And the land is defiled. therefore I visit the iniquity of it on it and the land itself vomits out her inhabitants. 26 Therefore you shall keep my statutes and my judgments and shall not commit any of these abominations, not any of your own nation nor any stranger who sojourns among you. 27 (For the men of the land which were before you have done all these abominations and the land is defiled,) 28 So that the land does not spue you out when you defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you. 29 For whoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls who commit them shall be cut off from among their people. 30 Therefore you shall keep my ordinances so that you do not commit any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you and that you do not defile yourselves in it. I am the LORD your God.

I am the LORD your God. 4 Do not turn to idols nor make molten gods for yourselves. I am the LORD your God. 5 And if you offer a sacrifice of peace offerings to the LORD, you shall offer it at your own will. 6 It shall be eaten the same day you offer it and on the morning after but if anything remains until the third day, it shall be burned in the fire. 7 And if it is eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable, it shall not be accepted. 8 Therefore every one who eats it shall bear his iniquity because he has profaned the hallowed thing of the LORD and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 9 And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field, neither shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest. 10 And you shall not glean your vineyard nor shall you gather all the grapes of your vineyard, you shall leave some for the poor and stranger.

She shall be scourged, they shall not be put to death, because she was not free. 21 And he shall bring his trespass offering to the LORD, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, a ram for a trespass offering. 22 And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering before the LORD for his sin which he has done and the sin which he has done shall be forgiven him. 23 And when you shall come into the land and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then you shall count the fruit of it as uncircumcised. It shall be as uncircumcised to you for three years. it shall not be eaten. 24 But in the fourth year all the fruit of it shall be holy to praise the LORD. 25 And in the fifth year you shall eat of the fruit of it, that it may yield to you its increase. I am the LORD your God. 26 You shall not eat any thing with the blood neither shall you use enchantment nor observe times. 27 You shall not round the corners of your heads nor shall you mar the corners of your beard. 28 You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead nor print any marks on you.

I am the LORD. 33 And if a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not vex him. 34 But the stranger who dwells with you shall be to you as one born among you and you shall love him as yourself for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. I am The LORD your God. 35 You shall not do unrighteousness in judgment, in size, in weight or in measure. 36 You shall have just balances, just weights, a just ephah and a just hin, I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. 37 Therefore you shall observe all my statutes and all my judgments and do them. I am the LORD.

Chapter 20

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Again, you shall say to the children of Israel, Whoever he is of the children of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel, who gives any of his seed to Moloch, he shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3 And I will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people because he has given his seed to Moloch, to defile my sanctuary and to profane my holy name. 4 And if the people of the land in any way hide their eyes from the man, when he gives his seed to Moloch and does not kill him 5 Then I will set my face against that man and against his family and will cut him off from among their people and all who go whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Moloch. 6 And the soul that turns 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. 7 Sanctify yourselves therefore and be holy for I am the LORD your God. 8 And you shall keep my statutes and do them. I am the LORD who sanctifies you. 9 For every one who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. He has cursed his father or his mother, his blood shall be on him.

10 And the man who commits adultery with another man's wife, even he who commits adultery with his neighbor's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. 11 And the man who lies with his father's wife has uncovered his father's nakedness. Both of them shall surely be put to death, their blood shall be on them. 12 And if a man lies with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death. They have worked confusion, their blood shall be on them. 13 If a man also lies with men, as he lies with a women, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death, their blood shall be on them. 14 And if a man takes a wife and her mother, it is wickedness. They shall be burned with fire, both he and they so that there is no wickedness among you. 15 And if a man lies with an animal, he shall surely be put to death and you shall kill the animal. 16 And if a woman approaches any animal and lies down to it, you shall kill the woman and the animal. They shall surely be put to death, their blood shall be on them. 17 And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter or his mother's daughter and sees her nakedness and she sees his nakedness, it is a wicked thing and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people. He has uncovered his sister's nakedness, he shall bear his iniquity. 18 And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness and shall uncover her nakedness, he has discovered her fountain and she has uncovered the fountain of her blood and both of them shall be cut off from among their people. 19 And you shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother's sister nor of your father's sister for he who uncovers his near kin shall bear his iniquity. 20 And if a man shall lie with his uncle's wife, he has uncovered his uncle's nakedness. They shall bear their sin, they shall die childless. 21 And if a man shall take his brother's wife, it is an unclean thing. He has uncovered his brother's nakedness, they shall be childless.

22 You shall therefore keep all my statutes and all my judgments and do them so that the land, where I am bringing you to dwell in, does not spue you out. 23 And you 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. 24 But I have said to you, you shall inherit their land and I will give it to you to possess it, a land that flows with milk and honey. I am the LORD your God, who has separated you from other people. 25 You shall therefore put a difference between clean animals and unclean and between unclean fowls and clean and you shall not make your souls abominable by an animal or by fowl or by any manner of living thing that creeps on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. 26 And you shall be holy to me for I the LORD am holy and have severed you from other people so that you should be mine. 27 A man also or woman who has a familiar spirit or who is a wizard, shall surely be put to death. They shall stone them with stones. Their blood shall be on them.

Chapter 21

1 And the LORD said to Moses, Speak to the priests the sons of Aaron and say to them, There shall no one be defiled for the dead among his people. 2 But for his kin, who is near to him, that is for his mother and for his father and for his son and for his daughter and for his brother 3 And for his sister a virgin, who is near to him, which has had no husband, he may be defiled for her. 4 But he shall not defile himself, being a chief man among his people, to profane himself. 5 They shall not make baldness on their head nor shall they shave off the corner of their beard nor make any cuttings in their flesh. 6 They shall be holy to 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, which they offer. Therefore they shall be holy. 7 They shall not take a wife who is a whore or profane nor shall they take a woman put away from her husband for he is holy to his God. 8 You shall sanctify him therefore for he offers the bread of your God. He shall be holy to you for I the LORD, who sanctifies you, am holy. 9 And the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself by playing the whore, she profanes her father. She shall be burned with fire.

10 And he who is the high priest among his brothers, on whose head the anointing oil was poured and who is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not uncover his head nor tear his clothes 11 Nor shall he go in to any dead body nor defile himself for his father or for his mother 12 Nor 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 on him. I am the LORD. 13 And he shall take a wife in her virginity. 14 A widow or a divorced woman or profane, or an harlot, he shall not take these but he shall take a virgin of his own people for a wife. 15 Nor shall he profane his seed among his people for I the LORD sanctify him.

16 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 17 Speak to Aaron, saying, Whoever he is of your seed in their generations who has any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God. 18 For whatever man he is who has a blemish, he shall not approach. A blind man or a lame or he who has a flat nose or any thing superfluous 19 Or a man who is broken footed or broken handed 20 Or a crooked back or a dwarf or who has a blemish in his eye or is scurvy or scabbed or has his stones broken, 21 No man who has a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come near to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire. He has a blemish, he shall not come near to offer the bread of his God. 22 He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy and of the holy. 23 Only he shall not go in to the veil nor come near to the altar because he has a blemish so that he does not profane my sanctuaries for I the LORD sanctify them. 24 And Moses told it to Aaron and to his sons and to all the children of Israel.

Chapter 22

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to Aaron and to his sons that they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel and that they do not profane my holy name in those things which they hallow to me. I am the LORD. 3 Say to them, Whoever he is of all your seed among your generations, who goes to the holy things, which the children of Israel hallow to the LORD, having his uncleanness on him, that soul shall be cut off from my presence. I am the LORD. 4 Whatever man of the seed of Aaron is a leper or has a running issue, he shall not eat of the holy things, until he is clean. And whoever touches any thing that is unclean by the dead or a man whose seed goes from him 5 Or whoever touches any creeping thing, whereby he may be made unclean or a man of whom he may take uncleanness, whatever uncleanness he has, 6 The soul who has touched any such thing shall be unclean until evening and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he washes his flesh with water. 7 And when the sun is down, he shall be clean and shall afterward eat of the holy things because it is his food. 8 He shall not eat to defile himself with that which dies of itself or is torn with animals, I am the LORD. 9 Therefore they shall keep my ordinance, lest they bear sin for it and therefore die if they profane it. I the LORD sanctify them.

10 No stranger shall eat of the holy things. A sojourner of the priest or a hired servant, shall not eat of the holy things. 11 But if the priest buys any soul with his money, he shall eat of it and he who is born in his house. They shall eat of his food. 12 If the priest's daughter also is married to a stranger, she may not eat of an offering of the holy things. 13 But if the priest's daughter is a widow or divorced and has no child and is returned to her father's house, as in her youth, she shall eat of her father's food but no stranger shall eat it. 14 And if a man eats the holy things unwittingly, then he shall put the fifth part of it to it and shall give it to the priest with the holy thing. 15 And they shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel, which they offer to the LORD 16 Or suffer them to bear the iniquity of trespass, when they eat their holy things for I the LORD sanctify them.

17 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 18 Speak to Aaron and to his sons and to all the children of Israel and say to them, Whoever he is of the house of Israel or of the strangers in Israel, who will offer his oblation for all his vows and for all his freewill offerings, which they will offer to the LORD for a burnt offering, 19 You shall offer a male without blemish at your own will, of the cattle and of the sheep or of the goats. 20 But you shall not offer whatever has a blemish for it shall not be acceptable to you. 21 And whoever offers a sacrifice of peace offerings to the LORD to accomplish his vow or a freewill offering in cattle or sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted, there shall be no blemish in it. 22 Blind or broken or maimed or having a wen or scurvy or scabbed, you shall not offer these to the LORD nor make an offering by fire of them on the altar to The LORD. 23 Either a bullock or a lamb that has any thing superfluous or lacking in his parts, that may you offer for a freewill offering, but it shall not be accepted for a vow. 24 You shall not offer to the LORD that which is bruised or crushed or broken or cut nor shall you make any offering of it in your land. 25 Nor from a stranger's hand shall you offer the bread of your God of any of these because their corruption is in them and blemishes are in them, they shall not be accepted from you. 26 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 27 When a bullock or a sheep or a goat is born, then it shall be under the dam seven days and from the eighth day and forward it shall be accepted for an offering made by fire to the LORD. 28 And if it is cow or ewe, you shall not kill it and her young both in one day. 29 And when you will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD, offer it at your own will. 30 It shall be eaten upon the same day, you shall leave none of it until the next day. I am the LORD. 31 Therefore you shall keep my commandments and do them. I am the LORD. 32 Neither shall you profane my holy name but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel. I am the LORD who hallows you, 33 Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. I am the LORD.

It is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.

4 These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which you shall proclaim in their seasons. 5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at evening is the LORD'S Passover. 6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread to the LORD. you must eat unleavened bread seven days. 7 In the first day you shall have a holy convocation.

You shall do no servile work in it. 9 And The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 10 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, When you have come into the land which I give to you and shall reap the harvest of it, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest. 11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD to be accepted for you. On the next day after the sabbath the priest shall wave it. 12 And you shall offer that day when you wave the sheaf a male lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering to the LORD. 13 And its food offering shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire to the LORD for a sweet savor. And the drink offering of it shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin. 14 And you shall eat neither bread nor parched corn nor green ears, until the selfsame day that you have brought an offering to your God. It shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

15 And you shall count from the next day after the sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, seven sabbaths shall be complete. 16 Even to the morning after the seventh sabbath you shall number fifty days and you shall offer a new food offering to the LORD. 17 You shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals. They shall be of fine flour, they shall be baked with leaven, they are the first fruits to the LORD. 18 And you 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 to the LORD, with their food offering and their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of sweet savor to the LORD. 19 Then you shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings. 20 And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first fruits for a wave offering before the LORD, with the two lambs. They shall be holy to the LORD for the priest. 21 And you shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be a holy convocation to you. You shall do no servile work in it. It shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. 22 And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap all the corners of your field when you reap nor shall you gather any gleanings of your harvest. You shall leave them for the poor and for the stranger. I am the LORD your God.

It shall be a holy convocation to you and you shall afflict your souls and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD. 28 And you 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. 29 For whatever soul he is who shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. 30 And whatever soul he is who does any work in that same day, the same soul I will destroy from among his people. 31 You shall do no manner of work. It shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 32 It shall be to you a sabbath of rest and you shall afflict your souls. In the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath.

On the eighth day an holy convocation shall be to you and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD. It is a solemn assembly and you shall do no servile work in it. 37 These are the feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire to the LORD, a burnt offering and a food offering, a sacrifice and drink offerings, every thing on its day. 38 Beside the sabbaths of the LORD and beside your gifts and beside all your vows and beside all your freewill offerings, which you give to The LORD. 39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep a feast to the LORD seven days. The first day shall be a sabbath and the eighth day shall be a sabbath. 40 And on the first day you shall take the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees and the boughs of thick trees and willows of the brook and you shall rejoice before The LORD your God seven days. 41 And you shall keep a feast to the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month. 42 You shall dwell in booths seven days, all who are born Israelites shall dwell in booths. 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.

Chapter 25

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses in Mount Sinai, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, When you come into the land which I give you then the land shall keep a sabbath to the LORD. 3 Six years you shall sow your field and six years you shall prune your vineyard and gather in its fruit, 4 But the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest to the land, a sabbath for the LORD. You shall neither sow your field nor prune your vineyard. 5 That which grows of its own accord of your harvest you shall not reap nor gather the grapes of your vine undressed for it is a year of rest to the land. 6 And the sabbath of the land shall be food for you for you and for your servant and for your maid and for your hired servant and for your stranger who sojourns with you 7 And for your cattle and for the beasts that are in your land, all the increase of it shall be food.

8 And you shall number seven sabbaths of years to you, seven times seven years and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to you forty nine years. 9 Then you shall cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month. You shall make the trumpet sound in the day of atonement throughout all your land. 10 And you shall hallow the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee to you and you shall return every man to his possession and you shall return every man to his family. 11 That fiftieth year shall be a jubilee to you. You shall not sow nor reap that which grows of itself in it nor gather the grapes in it of your undressed vine. 12 For it is the jubilee, it shall be holy to you. You shall eat the increase of it out of the field. 13 In the year of this jubilee you shall return every man to his possession. 14 And if you sell any thing to your neighbor or buy any thing of your neighbor's hand, you shall not oppress one another. 15 According to the number of years after the jubilee you shall buy it from your neighbor and according to the number of years of the fruits he shall sell it to you. 16 According to the multitude of years you shall increase the price of it and according to the fewness of years you shall diminish the price of it for according to the number of the years of the fruits he will sell to you. 17 You shall not therefore oppress one another but you shall fear your God for I am the LORD your God. 18 Wherefore you shall do my statutes and keep my judgments and do them and you shall dwell in the land in safety. 19 And the land shall yield her fruit and you shall eat your fill and dwell in it in safety. 20 And if you shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow nor gather in our increase. 21 Then I will command my blessing on you in the sixth year and it shall bring forth fruit for three years. 22 And you shall sow the eighth year and eat of old fruit until the ninth year, until her fruits come in you shall eat the old store.

23 The land shall not be sold for ever for the land is mine for you are strangers and sojourners with me. 24 And in all the land of your possession you shall grant a redemption for the land. 25 If your brother has grown poor and has sold away some of his possession and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then he shall redeem that which his brother sold. 26 And if the man has no one to redeem it and he himself is able to redeem it 27 Then let him count the years of the sale of it and restore the surplus to the man to whom he sold it so that he may return to his possession. 28 But if he is not able to restore it to him then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of him who has bought it until the year of jubilee. And in the jubilee it shall go out and he shall return to his possession. 29 And if a man sells a dwelling house in a walled city then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold, within a full year he may redeem it. 30 And if it is not redeemed within the space of a full year then the house that is in the walled city shall be established for ever throughout his generations to him who bought it. it shall not go out in the jubilee. 31 But the houses of the villages which have no wall around them shall be counted as the fields of the country. They may be redeemed and they shall go out in the jubilee. 32 But the cities of the Levites and the houses of the cities of their possession, the Levites may redeem at any time. 33 And if a man purchases from the Levites then the house that was sold and the city of his possession, shall go out in the year of jubilee for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the children of Israel. 34 But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold for it is their perpetual possession. 35 And if your brother has grown poor and fallen in decay with you then you shall relieve him. Yes, though he is a stranger or a sojourner so that he may live with you. 36 Take no usury of him or increase but fear your God so that your brother may live with you. 37 You shall not lend him your money on usury nor lend him your victuals for increase. 38 I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God.

39 And if your brother who dwells by you has grown poor and is sold to you, you shall not compel him to serve as a bond-servant. 40 But he shall be with you as a hired servant and a sojourner and shall serve you to the year of jubilee. 41 And then he shall depart from you, he and his children with him and shall return to his own family and he shall return to the possession of his fathers. 42 For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the land of Egypt. They shall not be sold as bondmen. 43 You shall not rule over him with rigor but shall fear your God. 44 Both your bondmen and your bondmaids, who you shall have, shall be of the heathen who are around you, you shall buy them as bondmen and bondmaids. 45 Also you shall buy of the children of the strangers who sojourn among you and of their families who are with you, which they begat in your land and they shall be your possession. 46 And you 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 brothers the children of Israel, you shall not rule over one another with rigor. 47 And if a sojourner or stranger grows rich by you and your brother who dwells by him grows poor and sells himself to the stranger or sojourner by you or to the stock of the stranger's family. 48 After that he is sold he may be redeemed again, one of his brothers may redeem him. 49 Either his uncle or his uncle's son, may redeem him or any who is near of kin to him of his family may redeem him or if he is able, he may redeem himself. 50 And he shall reckon with him who bought him from the year that he was sold to him to the year of jubilee and the price of his sale shall be according to the number of years, according to the time of an hired servant shall it be with him. 51 If There is yet many years behind, according to them he shall give again the price of his redemption out of the money that he was bought. 52 And if there remains but few years to the year of jubilee then he shall count with him and according to his years he shall give him again the price of his redemption. 53 And as a yearly hired servant he shall be with him and the other shall not rule with rigor over him in your sight. 54 And if he is not redeemed in these years then he shall go out in the year of jubilee, both he and his children with him. 55 For the children of Israel are servants to me, they are my servants whom I brought out of the land of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.

Chapter 26

1 You shall not make idols nor graven image nor rear up a standing image nor shall you set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down to it for I am the LORD your God. 2 You shall keep my sabbaths and reverence my sanctuary. I am the LORD. 3 If you walk in my statutes and keep my commandments and do them 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. 5 And your threshing shall reach to the vintage and the vintage shall reach to the sowing time and you shall eat your bread to the full and dwell in your land safely. 6 And I will give peace in the land and you shall lie down and no one shall make you afraid and I will rid evil animals out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. 7 And you shall chase your enemies and they shall fall before you by the sword. 8 And five of you shall chase a hundred and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. 9 For I will have respect to you and make you fruitful and multiply you and establish my covenant with you. 10 And you shall eat old store and throw out the old because of the new. 11 And I will set my tabernacle among you and my soul shall not abhor you. 12 And I will walk among you and will be your God and you shall be my people. 13 I am The LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt so that you should not be their bondmen and I have broken the bands of your yoke and made you go upright.

14 But if you will not listen to me and will not do all these commandments, 15 And if you shall despise my statutes or if your soul abhors my judgments so that you will not do all my commandments but that you break my covenant. 16 I also will do this to you, I will even appoint over you terror, consumption and the burning ague that shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart and you shall sow your seed in vain for your enemies shall eat it. 17 And I will set my face against you and you shall be slain before your enemies Those who hate you shall reign over you and you shall flee when no one pursues you. 18 And if you will not yet for all this listen to me then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. 19 And I will break the pride of your power and I will make your heaven as iron and your earth as brass. 20 And your strength shall be spent in vain for your land shall not yield its increase nor shall the trees of the land yield their fruits. 21 And if you walk contrary to me and will not listen to me, I will bring seven times more plagues on you according to your sins. 22 I will also send wild animals 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. 23 And if you will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary to me 24 Then I will also walk contrary to you and will punish you yet seven times for your sins. 25 And I will bring a sword on you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant and when you are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. 26 And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven and they shall deliver your bread again by weight and you shall eat and not be satisfied. 27 And if you will not for all this listen to me but walk contrary to me 28 Then I will walk contrary to you also in fury and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. 29 And you shall eat the flesh of your sons and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters. 30 And I will destroy your high places and cut down your images and cast your carcases on the carcases of your idols and my soul shall abhor you. 31 And I will make your cities waste and bring your sanctuaries to desolation and I will not smell the savor of your sweet odors. 32 And I will bring the land into desolation and your enemies which dwell in it shall be astonished at it. 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. 34 Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lies desolate and you are in your enemies' land, even then shall the land rest and enjoy her sabbaths. 35 As long as it lies desolate it shall rest, because it did not rest in your sabbaths, when you dwelled on it. 36 And on those who are left alive 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 no one pursues. 37 And they shall fall on one another, as before a sword, when no one pursues and you shall have no power to stand before your enemies. 38 And you shall perish among the heathen and the land of your enemies shall eat you up. 39 And those who are left from you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands and also in the iniquities of their fathers they shall pine away with them.

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 to me 41 And that I also have walked contrary to them and have brought them into the land of their enemies, if then their uncircumcised hearts are humbled and they then accept the punishment of their iniquity. 42 Then I will remember my covenant with Jacob and also my covenant with Isaac and also my covenant with Abraham I will remember and I will remember the land. 43 The land also shall be left by them and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while she lies desolate without them and they shall accept the punishment of their iniquity because, even because they despised my judgments and because their soul abhorred my statutes. 44 And yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away nor will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly and to break my covenant with them for I am the LORD their God. 45 But I will remember the covenant of their ancestors for their sakes, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen so that I might be their God. I am the LORD. 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.

Chapter 27

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons shall be for the LORD by your estimation. 3 And your estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even to sixty years old, even your estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary. 4 And if it is a female, then your estimation shall be thirty shekels. 5 And if it is from five years old even to twenty years old, then your estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels and for the female ten shekels. 6 And if it is from a month old even to five years old, then your estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver and for the female your estimation shall be three shekels of silver. 7 And if it is from sixty years old and above, if it is a male, then your estimation shall be fifteen shekels and for the female ten shekels. 8 But if he is poorer than your estimation then he shall present himself before the priest and the priest shall value him, according to his ability who vowed shall the priest value him. 9 And if it is an animal, of which men bring an offering to the LORD, all who any man gives of such to the LORD shall be holy. 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 of it shall be holy. 11 And if it is any unclean animal of which they do not offer a sacrifice to the LORD then he shall present the animal before the priest. 12 And the priest shall value it, whether it is good or bad ashe who is the priest shall value it, so shall it be. 13 But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a fifth part of it to your estimation.

14 And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy to the LORD then the priest shall estimate it, whether it is good or bad and as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it stand. 15 And if he who sanctified it will redeem his house then he shall add the fifth part of the money of your estimation to it and it shall be his. 16 And if a man shall sanctify to the LORD some part of a field of his possession then your estimation shall be according to its seed. An homer of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver. 17 If he sanctifies his field from the year of jubilee, according to your estimation it shall stand. 18 But if he sanctify his field after the jubilee, then the priest shall reckon to him the money according to the years that remain, even to the year of the jubilee and it shall be abated from your estimation. 19 And if he who sanctified the field will in any way redeem it then he shall add the fifth part of the money of your estimation to it and it shall be assured to him. 20 And if he will not redeem the field or if he has sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed any more. 21 But the field, when it goes out in the jubilee, shall be holy to the LORD, as a field devoted, the possession of it shall be the priest's. 22 And if a man sanctifies to the LORD a field which he has bought, which is not of the fields of his possession, 23 Then the priest shall reckon to him the worth of your estimation, even to the year of the jubilee and he shall give your estimation in that day, as a holy thing to the LORD. 24 In the year of the jubilee the field shall return to him from whom it was bought, even to him to whom the possession of the land belonged. 25 And all your estimations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary. Twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.

26 Only the first born of the animals, which should be the LORD'S first born, no man shall sanctify it, whether it is ox or sheep. It is the LORD'S. 27 And if it is of an unclean animal, then he shall redeem it according to your estimation and shall add a fifth part to it or if it is not redeemed then it shall be sold according to your estimation. 28 Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote to the LORD of all that he has, both of man and beast and of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed. Every devoted thing is most holy to The LORD. 29 No one devoted, who shall be devoted of men, shall be redeemed but shall surely be put to death. 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 to the LORD. 31 And if a man will at all redeem any of his tithes, he shall add to it the fifth part. 32 And concerning the tithe of the herd or of the flock, even of whatever passes under the rod, the tenth shall be holy to the LORD. 33 He shall not search whether it is good or bad, nor shall he change it and if he changes it at all then both it and the change of it shall be holy, it shall not be redeemed. 34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in Mount Sinai.
