Leviticus

1 And Jehovah called unto Moses, and spoke unto him out of the tent of meeting, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any man of you offers an oblation unto Jehovah, you shall offer your oblation of the cattle, even of the herd and of the flock.

3If his oblation be a burnt-offering of the herd, he shall offer it a male without blemish: he shall offer it at the door of the tent of meeting, that he may be accepted before Jehovah. 4And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the burnt-offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him. 5And he shall kill the bullock before Jehovah: and Aaronís sons, the priests, shall present the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is at the door of the tent of meeting. 6And he shall flay the burnt-offering, and cut it into its pieces. 7And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay wood in order upon the fire; 8and Aaronís sons, the priests, shall lay the pieces, the head, and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar: 9but its inwards and its legs shall he wash with water: and the priest shall burn the whole on the altar, for a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah.

10And if his oblation be of the flock, of the sheep, or of the goats, for a burnt-offering; he shall offer it a male without blemish. 11And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before Jehovah: and Aaronís sons, the priests, shall sprinkle its blood upon the altar round about. 12And he shall cut it into its pieces, with its head and its fat; and the priest shall lay them in order on the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar: 13but the inwards and the legs shall he wash with water; and the priest shall offer the whole, and burn it upon the altar: it is a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah. 14And if his oblation to Jehovah be a burnt-offering of birds, then he shall offer his oblation of turtle-doves, or of young pigeons. 15And the priest shall bring it unto the altar, and wring off its head, and burn it on the altar; and the blood thereof shall be drained out on the side of the altar; 16and he shall take away its crop with the filth thereof, and cast it beside the altar on the east part, in the place of the ashes: 17and he shall rend it by the wings thereof, but shall not divide it asunder; and the priest shall burn it upon the altar, upon the wood that is upon the fire: it is a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah.

 

2 And when any one offers an oblation of a meal-offering unto Jehovah, his oblation shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon: 2and he shall bring it to Aaronís sons the priests; and he shall take out his handful of the fine flour, and of the oil, with the frankincense; and the priest shall burn it as the memorial upon the altar, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah: 3and that which is left of the meal-offering shall be Aaronís and his sonsí: it is a thing most holy of the offerings of Jehovah made by fire. 4And when you offer an oblation of a meal-offering baked in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or unleavened wafers anointed with oil. 5And if your oblation be a meal-offering of the baking-pan, it shall be of fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil. 6you shall part it in pieces, and pour oil thereon: it is a meal-offering. 7And if your oblation be a meal-offering of the frying-pan, it shall be made of fine flour with oil. 8And you shall bring the meal-offering that is made of these things unto Jehovah: and it shall be presented unto the priest, and he shall bring it unto the altar. 9And the priest shall take up from the meal-offering the memorial, and shall burn it upon the altar, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah. 10And that which is left of the meal-offering shall be Aaronís and his sonsí: it is a thing most holy of the offerings of Jehovah made by fire.

11No meal-offering, which you shall offer unto Jehovah, shall be made with leaven; for you shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, as an offering made by fire unto Jehovah. 12As an oblation of first-fruits you shall offer them unto Jehovah: but they shall not come up for a sweet savor on the altar. 13And every oblation of your meal-offering shall you season with salt; neither shall you suffer the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your meal-offering: with all your oblations you shall offer salt. 14And if you offer a meal-offering of first-fruits unto Jehovah, you shall offer for the meal-offering of your first-fruits grain in the ear parched with fire, bruised grain of the fresh ear. 15And you shall put oil upon it, and lay frankincense thereon: it is a meal-offering. 16And the priest shall burn the memorial of it, part of the bruised grain, and part of the oil, with all the frankincense: it is an offering made by fire unto Jehovah.

 

3 And if his oblation be a sacrifice of peace-offerings; if he offer of the herd, whether male or female, he shall offer it without blemish before Jehovah. 2And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his oblation, and kill it at the door of the tent of meeting: and Aaronís sons the priests shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about. 3And he shall offer of the sacrifice of peace-offerings an offering made by fire unto Jehovah; the fat that covers the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards, 4and the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the loins, and the lobe upon the liver, with the kidneys, shall he take away. 5And Aaronís sons shall burn it on the altar upon the burnt-offering, which is upon the wood that is on the fire: it is an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah.

6And if his oblation for a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto Jehovah be of the flock; male or female, he shall offer it without blemish. 7If he offer a lamb for his oblation, then shall he offer it before Jehovah; 8and he shall lay his hand upon the head of his oblation, and kill it before the tent of meeting: and Aaronís sons shall sprinkle the blood thereof upon the altar round about. 9And he shall offer of the sacrifice of peace-offerings an offering made by fire unto Jehovah; the fat thereof, the fat tail entire, he shall take off close by the backbone; and the fat that covers the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards, 10and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the loins, and the lobe upon the liver, with the kidneys, shall he take away. 11And the priest shall burn it upon the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire unto Jehovah. 12And if his oblation be a goat, then he shall offer it before Jehovah: 13and he shall lay his hand upon the head of it, and kill it before the tent of meeting; and the sons of Aaron shall sprinkle the blood thereof upon the altar round about. 14And he shall offer his oblation, even an offering made by fire unto Jehovah; the fat that covers the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards, 15and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the loins, and the lobe upon the liver, with the kidneys, shall he take away. 16And the priest shall burn them upon the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire, for a sweet savor; all the fat is Jehovahís. 17It shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwellings, that you shall eat neither fat nor blood.

 

4 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any one *** shall sin unwittingly, in any of the things which Jehovah has commanded not to be done, and shall do any one of them: 3if the anointed priest shall sin so as to bring guilt on the people, then let him offer for his sin, which he has sinned, a young bullock without blemish unto Jehovah for a sin-offering. 4And he shall bring the bullock unto the door of the tent of meeting before Jehovah; and he shall lay his hand upon the head of the bullock, and kill the bullock before Jehovah. 5And the anointed priest shall take of the blood of the bullock, and bring it to the tent of meeting: 6and the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle of the blood seven times before Jehovah, before the veil of the sanctuary. 7And the priest shall put part of the blood upon the horns of the altar of sweet incense before Jehovah, which is in the tent of meeting; and all the blood of the bullock shall he pour out at the base of the altar of burnt-offering, which is at the door of the tent of meeting. 8And all the fat of the bullock of the sin-offering he shall take off from it; the fat that covers the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards, 9and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the loins, and the lobe upon the liver, with the kidneys, shall he take away, 10as it is taken off from the ox of the sacrifice of peace-offerings: and the priest shall burn them upon the altar of burnt-offering. 11And the skin of the bullock, and all its flesh, with its head, and with its legs, and its inwards, and its dung, 12even the whole bullock shall he carry forth without the camp unto a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn it on wood with fire: where the ashes are poured out shall it be burnt.

13And if the whole congregation of Israel err, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done any of the things which Jehovah has commanded not to be done, and are guilty; 14when the sin wherein they have sinned is known, then the assembly shall offer a young bullock for a sin-offering, and bring it before the tent of meeting. 15And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands upon the head of the bullock before Jehovah; and the bullock shall be killed before Jehovah. 16And the anointed priest shall bring of the blood of the bullock to the tent of meeting: 17and the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before Jehovah, before the veil. 18And he shall put of the blood upon the horns of the altar which is before Jehovah, that is in the tent of meeting; and all the blood shall he pour out at the base of the altar of burnt-offering, which is at the door of the tent of meeting. 19And all the fat thereof shall he take off from it, and burn it upon the altar. 20this shall he do with the bullock; as he did with the bullock of the sin-offering, so shall he do with this; and the priest shall make atonement for them, and they shall be forgiven. 21And he shall carry forth the bullock without the camp, and burn it as he burned the first bullock: it is the sin-offering for the assembly.

22When a ruler sins, and does unwittingly any one of all the things which Jehovah his God has commanded not to be done, and is guilty; 23if his sin, wherein he has sinned, be made known to him, he shall bring for his oblation a goat, a male without blemish. 24And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and kill it in the place where they kill the burnt-offering before Jehovah: it is a sin-offering. 25And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin-offering with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt-offering; and the blood thereof shall he pour out at the base of the altar of burnt-offering. 26And all the fat thereof shall he burn upon the altar, as the fat of the sacrifice of peace-offerings; and the priest shall make atonement for him as concerning his sin, and he shall be forgiven.

27And if any one of the common people sin unwittingly, in doing any of the things which Jehovah has commanded not to be done, and be guilty; 28if his sin, which he has sinned, be made known to him, then he shall bring for his oblation a goat, a female without blemish, for his sin which he has sinned. 29And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin-offering, and kill the sin-offering in the place of burnt-offering. 30And the priest shall take of the blood thereof with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt-offering; and all the blood thereof shall he pour out at the base of the altar. 31And all the fat thereof shall he take away, as the fat is taken away from off the sacrifice of peace-offerings; and the priest shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savor unto Jehovah; and the priest shall make atonement for him, and he shall be forgiven. 32And if he bring a lamb as his oblation for a sin-offering, he shall bring a female without blemish. 33And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin-offering, and kill it for a sin-offering in the place where they kill the burnt-offering. 34And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin-offering with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt-offering; and all the blood thereof shall he pour out at the base of the altar: 35and all the fat thereof shall he take away, as the fat of the lamb is taken away from the sacrifice of peace-offerings; and the priest shall burn them on the altar, upon the offerings of Jehovah made by fire; and the priest shall make atonement for him as touching his sin that he has sinned, and he shall be forgiven.

 

5 And if any one sin, in that he hears the voice of adjuration, he being a witness, whether he has seen or known, if he does not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity. 2Or if any one touch any unclean thing, whether it be the carcass of an unclean beast, or the carcass of unclean cattle, or the carcass of unclean creeping things, and it be hidden from him, and he be unclean, then he shall be guilty. 3Or if he touch the uncleanness of man, whatsoever his uncleanness be wherewith he is unclean, and it be hid from him; when he knows of it, then he shall be guilty. 4Or if any one swear rashly with his lips to do evil, or to do good, whatsoever it be that a man shall utter rashly with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he knows of it, then he shall be guilty in one of these things. 5And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these things, that he shall confess that wherein he has sinned: 6and he shall bring his trespass-offering unto Jehovah for his sin which he has sinned, a female from the flock, a lamb or a goat, for a sin-offering; and the priest shall make atonement for him as concerning his sin.

7And if his means suffice not for a lamb, then he shall bring his trespass-offering for that wherein he has sinned, two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, unto Jehovah; one for a sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering. 8And he shall bring them unto the priest, who shall offer that which is for the sin-offering first, and wring off its head from its neck, but shall not divide it: 9and he shall sprinkle of the blood of the sin-offering upon the side of the altar; and the rest of the blood shall be drained out at the base of the altar: it is a sin-offering. 10And he shall offer the second for a burnt-offering, according to the ordinance; and the priest shall make atonement for him as concerning his sin which he has sinned, and he shall be forgiven. 11But if his means suffice not for two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, then he shall bring his oblation for that wherein he has sinned, the tenth part of an E-phah of fine flour for a sin-offering: he shall put no oil upon it, neither shall he put any frankincense thereon; for it is a sin-offering. 12And he shall bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take his handful of it as the memorial thereof, and burn it on the altar, upon the offerings of Jehovah made by fire: it is a sin-offering. 13And the priest shall make atonement for him as touching his sin that he has sinned in any of these things, and he shall be forgiven: and the remnant shall be the priestís, as the meal-offering.

14And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 15If any one commit a trespass, and sin unwittingly, in the holy things of Jehovah; then he shall bring his trespass-offering unto Jehovah, a ram without blemish out of the flock, according to your estimation in silver by shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass-offering: 16and he shall make restitution for that which he has done amiss in the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it unto the priest; and the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass-offering, and he shall be forgiven. 17And if any one sin, and do any of the things which Jehovah has commanded not to be done; though he knew it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity. 18And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock, according to your estimation, for a trespass-offering, unto the priest; and the priest shall make atonement for him concerning the thing wherein he erred unwittingly and knew it not, and he shall be forgiven. 19It is a trespass-offering: he is certainly guilty before Jehovah.

 

6 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2If any one sin, and commit a trespass against Jehovah, and deal falsely with his neighbor in a matter of deposit, or of bargain, or of robbery, or have oppressed his neighbor, 3or have found that which was lost, and deal falsely therein, and swear to a lie; in any of all these things that a man does, sinning therein; 4then it shall be, if he has sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took by robbery, or the thing which he has gotten by oppression, or the deposit which was committed to him, or the lost thing which he found, 5or any thing about which he has sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in full, and shall add the fifth part more thereto: unto him to whom it pertain shall he give it, in the day of his being found guilty. 6And he shall bring his trespass-offering unto Jehovah, a ram without blemish out of the flock, according to your estimation, for a trespass-offering, unto the priest: 7and the priest shall make atonement for him before Jehovah; and he shall be forgiven concerning whatsoever he does so as to be guilty thereby.

8And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 9Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt-offering: the burnt-offering shall be on the hearth upon the altar all night unto the morning; and the fire of the altar shall be kept burning thereon. 10And the priest shall put on his linen garment, and his linen breeches shall he put upon his flesh; and he shall take up the ashes whereof the fire has consumed the burnt-offering on the altar, and he shall put them beside the altar. 11And he shall put off his garments, and put on other garments, and carry forth the ashes without the camp unto a clean place. 12And the fire upon the altar shall be kept burning, it shall not go out; and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning: and he shall lay the burnt-offering in order upon it, and shall burn thereon the fat of the peace-offerings. 13Fire shall be kept burning upon the altar continually; it shall not go out.

14And this is the law of the meal-offering: the sons of Aaron shall offer it before Jehovah, before the altar. 15And he shall take therefrom his handful, of the fine flour of the meal-offering, and of the oil, and all the frankincense which is upon the meal-offering, and shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savor, as the memorial unto Jehovah. 16And that which is left, shall Aaron and his sons eat: it shall be eaten without leaven in a holy place; in the court of the tent of meeting they shall eat it. 17It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it as their portion of my offerings made by fire; it is most holy, as the sin-offering, and as the trespass-offering. 18Every male among the children of Aaron shall eat of it, as his portion for ever throughout your generations, from the offerings of Jehovah made by fire: whoever touches them shall be holy. 19And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 20This is the oblation of Aaron and of his sons, which they shall offer unto Jehovah in the day when he is anointed: the tenth part of an E-phah of fine flour for a meal-offering perpetually, half of it in the morning, and the other half in the evening. 21On a baking-pan it shall be made with oil; when it is soaked, you shall bring it in: in baked pieces shall you offer the meal-offering for a sweet savor unto Jehovah. 22And the anointed priest that shall be in his stead from among his sons shall offer it: by a statute for ever it shall be wholly burnt unto Jehovah. 23And every meal-offering of the priest shall be wholly burnt: it shall not be eaten.

24And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 25Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin-offering: in the place where the burnt-offering is killed before Jehovah: it is most holy. 26The priest that offers it for sin shall eat it: in a holy place shall it be eaten, in the court of the tent of meeting. 27Whatsoever shall touch the flesh thereof shall be holy; and when there is sprinkled of the blood thereof upon any garment, you shall wash that whereon it was sprinkled in a holy place. 28But the earthen vessel wherein it is boiled shall be broken; and if it be boiled in a brazen vessel, it shall be scoured, and rinsed in water. 29Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it is most holy. 30And no sin-offering, whereof any of the blood is brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement in the holy place, shall be eaten: it shall be burnt with fire.

 

7 And this is the law of the trespass-offering: it is most holy. 2In the place where they kill the burnt-offering shall they kill the trespass-offering; and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle upon the altar round about. 3And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof: the fat tail, and the fat that covers the inwards, 4and the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the loins, and the lobe upon the liver, with the kidneys, shall he take away; 5and the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made by fire unto Jehovah: it is a trespass-offering. 6Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in a holy place: it is most holy. 7As is the sin-offering, so is the trespass-offering; there is one law for them: the priest that makes atonement therewith, he shall have it. 8And the priest that offers any manís burnt-offering, even the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt-offering which he has offered. 9And every meal-offering that is baked in the oven, and all that is dressed in the frying-pan, and on the baking-pan, shall be the priestís that offers it. 10And every meal-offering, mingled with oil, or dry, shall all the sons of Aaron have, one as well as another.

11And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace-offerings, which one shall offer unto Jehovah. 12If he offer 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 flour soaked. 13With cakes of leavened bread he shall offer his oblation with the sacrifice of his peace-offerings for thanksgiving. 14And of it he shall offer one out of each oblation for a heave-offering unto Jehovah; it shall be the priestís that sprinkle the blood of the peace-offerings. 15And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace-offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten on the day of his oblation; he shall not leave any of it until the morning. 16But if the sacrifice of his oblation be a vow, or a freewill-offering, it shall be eaten on the day that he offers his sacrifice; and on the next day that which remains of it shall be eaten: 17but that which remains of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt with fire. 18And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace-offerings be eaten on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed unto him that offers it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eats of it shall bear his iniquity. 19And the flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten; it shall be burnt with fire. And as for the flesh, every one that is clean shall eat thereof: 20but the soul that eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace-offerings, that pertain unto Jehovah, having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from his people. 21And when any one shall touch any unclean thing, the uncleanness of man, or an unclean beast, or any unclean abomination, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace-offerings, which pertain unto Jehovah, that soul shall be cut off from his people. 22And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 23Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, you shall eat no fat, of ox, or sheep, or goat. 24And the fat of that which dies of itself, and the fat of that which is torn of beasts, may be used for any other service; but you shall in no way eat of it. 25For whoever eats the fat of the beast, of which men offer an offering made by fire unto Jehovah, even the soul that eats it shall be cut off from his people. 26And you shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of bird or of beast, in any of your dwellings. 27whoeverever it be that eats any blood, that soul shall be cut off from his people. 28And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 29Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, He that offers the sacrifice of his peace-offerings unto Jehovah shall bring his oblation unto Jehovah out of the sacrifice of his peace-offerings: 30his own hands shall bring the offerings of Jehovah made by fire; the fat with the breast shall he bring, that the breast may be waved for a wave-offering before Jehovah. 31And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar; but the breast shall be Aaronís and his sonsí. 32And the right thigh shall you give unto the priest for a heave-offering out of the sacrifices of your peace-offerings. 33He among the sons of Aaron that offers the blood of the peace-offerings, and the fat, shall have the right thigh for a portion. 34For the wave-breast and the heave-thigh have I taken of the children of Israel out of the sacrifices of their peace-offerings, and have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons as their portion for ever from the children of Israel.

35This is the anointing-portion of Aaron, and the anointing-portion of his sons, out of the offerings of Jehovah made by fire, in the day when he presented them to minister unto Jehovah in the priestís office; 36which Jehovah commanded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them. It is their portion for ever throughout their generations. 37This is the law of the burnt-offering, of the meal-offering, and of the sin-offering, and of the trespass-offering, and of the consecration, and of the sacrifice of peace-offerings; 38which Jehovah commanded Moses in mount Si-nai, in the day that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations unto Jehovah, in the wilderness of Si-nai.

 

8 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and the bullock of the sin-offering, and the two rams, and the basket of unleavened bread; 3and assemble all the congregation at the door of the tent of meeting. 4And Moses did as Jehovah commanded him; and the congregation was assembled at the door of the tent of meeting. 5And Moses said unto the congregation, This is the thing which Jehovah has commanded to be done. 6And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water. 7And he put upon him the coat, and girded him with the girdle, and clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him, and he girded him with the skillfully woven band of the ephod, and with it bound the ephod to him. 8And he placed the breastplate upon him: and in the breastplate he put the U-rim and the Thum-mim. 9And he set the mitre upon his head; and upon the mitre, in front, he set the golden plate, the holy crown; as Jehovah commanded Moses. 10And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was therein, and sanctified them. 11And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all its vessels, and the laver and its base, to sanctify them. 12And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaronís head, and anointed him, to sanctify him. 13And Moses brought Aaronís sons, and clothed them with coats, and girded them with girdles, and bound head-tires upon them; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

14And he brought the bullock of the sin-offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock of the sin-offering. 15And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured out the blood at the base of the altar, and sanctified it, to make atonement for it. 16And he took all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat; and Moses burned it upon the altar. 17But the bullock, and its skin, and its flesh, and its dung, he burnt with fire without the camp; as Jehovah commanded Moses. 18And he presented the ram of the burnt-offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram. 19And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about. 20And he cut the ram into its pieces; and Moses burnt the head, and the pieces, and the fat. 21And he washed the inwards and the legs with water; and Moses burnt the whole ram upon the altar: it was a burnt-offering for a sweet savor: it was an offering made by fire unto Jehovah; as Jehovah commanded Moses. 22And he presented the other ram, the ram of consecration: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram. 23And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood thereof, and put it upon the tip of Aaronís right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot. 24And he brought Aaronís sons; and Moses put of the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot: and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about. 25And he took the fat, and the fat tail, and all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right thigh: 26and out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before Jehovah, he took one unleavened cake, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and placed them on the fat, and upon the right thigh: 27and he put the whole upon the hands of Aaron, and upon the hands of his sons, and waved them for a wave-offering before Jehovah. 28And Moses took them from off their hands, and burnt them on the altar upon the burnt-offering: they were a consecration for a sweet savor: it was an offering made by fire unto Jehovah. 29And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave-offering before Jehovah: it was Mosesí portion of the ram of consecration; as Jehovah commanded Moses. 30And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sonsí garments with him, and sanctified Aaron, his garments, and his sons, and his sonsí garments with him.

31And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at the door of the tent of meeting: and eat it there and the bread that is in the basket of consecration, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it. 32And that which remains of the flesh and of the bread shall you burn with fire. 33And you shall not go out from the door of the tent of meeting seven days, until the days of your consecration be fulfilled: for he shall consecrate you seven days. 34As has been done this day, so Jehovah has commanded to do, to make atonement for you. 35And at the door of the tent of meeting shall you abide day and night seven days, and keep the charge of Jehovah, that you die not: for so I am commanded. 36And Aaron and his sons did all the things which Jehovah commanded by Moses.

 

9 And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel; 2and he said unto Aaron, Take to you a calf of the herd for a sin-offering, and a ram for a burnt-offering, without blemish, and offer them before Jehovah. 3And unto the children of Israel you shall speak, saying, Take to you a he-goat for a sin-offering; and a calf and a lamb, both a year old, without blemish, for a burnt-offering; 4and an ox and a ram for peace-offerings, to sacrifice before Jehovah; and a meal-offering mingled with oil: for today Jehovah will appear unto you. 5And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tent of meeting: and all the congregation drew near and stood before Jehovah. 6And Moses said, This is the thing which Jehovah commanded that you should do: and the glory of Jehovah shall appear unto you. 7And Moses said unto Aaron, Draw near unto the altar, and offer your sin-offering, and your burnt-offering, and make atonement for yourself, and for the people; and offer the oblation of the people, and make atonement for them; as Jehovah commanded.

8So Aaron drew near unto the altar, and slew the calf of the sin-offering, which was for himself. 9And the sons of Aaron presented the blood unto him; and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the base of the altar: 10but the fat, and the kidneys, and the lobe from the liver of the sin-offering, he burnt upon the altar; as Jehovah commanded Moses. 11And the flesh and the skin he burnt with fire without the camp. 12And he slew the burnt-offering; and Aaronís sons delivered the blood unto him, and he sprinkled it upon the altar round about. 13And they delivered the burnt-offering unto him, piece by piece, and the head: and he burnt them upon the altar. 14And he washed the inwards and the legs, and burnt them upon the burnt-offering on the altar. 15And he presented the peopleís oblation, and took the goat of the sin-offering which was for the people, and slew it, and offered it for sin, as the first. 16And he presented the burnt-offering, and offered it according to the ordinance. 17And he presented the meal-offering, and filled his hand therefrom, and burnt it upon the altar, besides the burnt-offering of the morning. 18He slew also the ox and the ram, the sacrifice of peace-offerings, which was for the people: and Aaronís sons delivered the blood unto him, which he sprinkled upon the altar round about, 19and the fat of the ox and of the ram, the fat tail, and that which covers the inwards, and the kidneys, and the lobe of the liver: 20and they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fat upon the altar: 21and the breasts and the right thigh Aaron waved for a wave-offering before Jehovah; as Moses commanded. 22And Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people, and blessed them; and he came down from offering the sin-offering, and the burnt-offering, and the peace-offerings.

23And Moses and Aaron went into the tent of meeting, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of Jehovah appeared unto all the people. 24And there came forth fire from before Jehovah, and consumed upon the altar the burnt-offering and the fat: and when all the people saw it, they shouted, and fell on their faces.

 

10 And Na-dab and A-bi-hu, the sons of Aaron, took each of them his censer, and put fire therein, and laid incense thereon, and offered a strange fire before Jehovah, which he had not commanded them. 2And there came forth fire from before Jehovah, and devoured them, and they died before Jehovah.

3Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that Jehovah spoke, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come near me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace. 4And Moses called Mi-sha-el and El-za-phan, the sons of Uz-zi-el the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Draw near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp. 5So they drew near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp, as Moses had said. 6And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto El-e-a-zar and unto Ith-a-mar, his sons, Let not the hair of your heads go free, neither rend your clothes; that you die not, and that he be not angry with all the congregation: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which Jehovah has kindled. 7And you shall not go out from the door of the tent of meeting, unless you die; for the anointing oil of Jehovah is upon you. And they did according to the word of Moses.

8And Jehovah spoke unto Aaron, saying, 9Drink no wine nor strong drink, you, nor your sons with you, when you go into the tent of meeting, that you die not: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations: 10and that you may make a distinction between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the clean; 11and that you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which Jehovah has spoken unto them by Moses.

12And Moses spoke unto Aaron, and unto El-e-a-zar and unto Ith-a-mar, his sons that were left, Take the meal-offering that remains of the offerings of Jehovah made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar; for it is most holy; 13and you shall eat it in a holy place, because it is your portion, and your sonsí portion, of the offerings of Jehovah made by fire: for so I am commanded. 14And the wave-breast and the heave-thigh shall you eat in a clean place, you, and your sons, and your daughters with you: for they are given as your portion, and your sonsí portion, out of the sacrifices of the peace-offerings of the children of Israel. 15The heave-thigh and the wave-breast shall they bring with the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave-offering before Jehovah: and it shall be yours, and your sonsí with you, as a portion for ever; as Jehovah has commanded. 16And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin-offering, and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with El-e-a-zar and with Ith-a-mar, the sons of Aaron that were left, saying, 17why have you not eaten the sin-offering in the place of the sanctuary, seeing it is most holy, and he has given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before Jehovah? 18Behold, the blood of it was not brought into the sanctuary within: you should certainly have eaten it in the sanctuary, as I commanded. 19And Aaron spoke unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin-offering and their burnt-offering before Jehovah; and there have befallen me such things as these: and if I had eaten the sin-offering today, would it have been well-pleasing in the sight of Jehovah? 20And when Moses heard that, it was well-pleasing in his sight.

 

11 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the living things which you may eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. 3Whatsoever parts the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and chews the cud, among the beasts, that you may eat. 4Nevertheless, you shall not eat of these that chew the cud, or of these that part the hoof: the camel, because he chews the cud but parts not the hoof, he is unclean unto you. 5And the coney, because he chews the cud but parts not the hoof, he is unclean unto you. 6And the hare, because she chews the cud but parts not the hoof, she is unclean unto you. 7And the swine, because he parts the hoof, and is clovenfooted, but chews not the cud, he is unclean unto you. 8Of their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch; they are unclean unto you.

9These may you eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, that may you eat. 10And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of all the living creatures that are in the waters, they are an abomination unto you, 11and they shall be an abomination unto you; you shall not eat of their flesh, and their carcasses you shall have in abomination. 12Whatsoever has no fins nor scales in the waters, that is an abomination unto you. 13And these you shall have in abomination among the birds; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the gier-eagle, and the ospray, 14and the kite, and the falcon after its kind, 15every raven after its kind, 16and the ostrich, and the night-hawk, and the seamew, and the hawk after its kind, 17and the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl, 18and the horned owl, and the pelican, and the vulture, 19and the stork, the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat.

20All winged creeping things that go upon all fours are an abomination unto you. 21yet these may you eat of all winged creeping things that go upon all fours, which have legs above their feet, wherewith to leap upon the earth. 22Even these of them you may eat: the locust after its kind, and the bald locust after its kind, and the cricket after its kind, and the grasshopper after its kind. 23But all winged creeping things, which have four feet, are an abomination unto you. 24And by these you shall become unclean: whoever touches the carcass of them shall be unclean until the even; 25And whoever bears anything of the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even. 26Every beast which parts the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor chews the cud, is unclean unto you: every one that touches them shall be unclean. 27And whatsoever goes upon its paws, among all beasts that go on all fours, they are unclean unto you: whoever touches their carcass shall be unclean until the even. 28And he that bears the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you. 29And these are they which are unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth: the weasel, and the mouse, and the great lizard after its kind, 30and the gecko, and the land-crocodile, and the lizard, and the sand-lizard, and the chameleon. 31These are they which are unclean to you among all that creep: whoever does touch them, when they are dead, shall be unclean until the even. 32And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, does fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherewith any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; then shall it be clean. 33And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falls, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean, and you shall break it. 34All food therein which may be eaten, that on which water comes, shall be unclean; and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean. 35And every thing whereupon any part of their carcass falls shall be unclean; whether oven, or range for pots, it shall be broken in pieces: they are unclean, and shall be unclean unto you. 36Nevertheless a fountain or a pit wherein is a gathering of water shall be clean: but that which touches their carcass shall be unclean. 37And if anything of their carcass fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it is clean. 38But if water be put upon the seed, and anything of their carcass fall thereon, it is unclean unto you. 39And if any beast, of which you may eat, die; he that touches the carcass thereof shall be unclean until the even. 40And he that eats of the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: he also that bears the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even. 41And every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth is an abomination; it shall not be eaten. 42Whatsoever goes upon the belly, and whatsoever goes upon all fours, or whatsoever has many feet, even all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them you shall not eat; for they are an abomination.

43you shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creeps, neither shall you make yourselves unclean with them, that you should be defiled thereby. 44For I am Jehovah your God: sanctify yourselves therefore, and be you holy; for I am holy: neither shall you defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that moves upon the earth. 45For I am Jehovah that brought you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: you shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. 46This is the law of the beast, and of the bird, and of every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps upon the earth; 47to make a distinction between the unclean and the clean, and between the living thing that may be eaten and the living thing that may not be eaten.

 

12 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman conceive seed, and bear a man-child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of the impurity of her sickness shall she be unclean. 3And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. 4And she shall continue in the blood of her purifying thirty-three days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled. 5But if she bear a maid-child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her impurity; and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying sixty-six days.

6And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb a year old for a burnt-offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtle-dove, for a sin-offering, unto the door of the tent of meeting, unto the priest: 7and he shall offer it before Jehovah, and make atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the fountain of her blood. This is the law for her that bears, whether a male or a female. 8And if her means suffice not for a lamb, then she shall take two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons; the one for a burnt-offering, and the other for a sin-offering: and the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be clean.

 

13 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 2When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh blistering, or a scab, or a bright spot, and it becomes in the skin of his flesh the plague of leprosy, then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests: 3and the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and if the hair in the plague be turned white, and the appearance of the plague is deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is the plague of leprosy; and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean. 4And if the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and the appearance thereof is not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof is not turned white, then the priest shall shut up him that has the plague for seven days: 5and the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if in his eyes the plague is at a stay, and the plague is not spread in the skin, then the priest shall shut him up seven days more: 6and the priest shall look on him again the seventh day; and, behold, if the plague is dim, and the plague is not spread in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean: it is a scab: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean. 7But if the scab spread abroad in the skin, after that he has showed himself to the priest for his cleansing, he shall show himself to the priest again: 8and the priest shall look; and, behold, if the scab be spread in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is leprosy. 9When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought unto the priest; 10and the priest shall look; and, behold, if there is a white rising in the skin, and it has turned the hair white, and there be quick raw flesh in the rising, 11it is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean: he shall not shut him up, for he is unclean. 12And if the leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the leprosy cover all the skin of him that has the plague from his head even to his feet, as far as appears to the priest; 13then the priest shall look; and, behold, if the leprosy has covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that has the plague: it is all turned white: he is clean. 14But whensoever raw flesh appear in him, he shall be unclean. 15And the priest shall look on the raw flesh, and pronounce him unclean: the raw flesh is unclean: it is leprosy. 16Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed unto white, then he shall come unto the priest; 17and the priest shall look on him; and, behold, if the plague be turned into white, then the priest shall pronounce him clean that has the plague: he is clean.

18And when the flesh has in the skin thereof a boil, and it is healed, 19and in the place of the boil there is a white rising, or a bright spot, reddish-white, then this shall be showed to the priest; 20and the priest shall look; and, behold, if the appearance thereof be lower than the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy, it has broken out in the boil. 21But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs therein, and it be not lower than the skin, but is dim; then the priest shall shut him up seven days: 22And if it spread abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague. 23But if the bright spot stay in its place, and be not spread, it is the scar of the boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean. 24Or when the flesh has in the skin thereof a burning by fire, and the quick flesh of the burning become a bright spot, reddish-white, or white; 25then the priest shall look upon it; and, behold, if the hair in the bright spot be turned white, and the appearance thereof be deeper than the skin; it is leprosy, it has broken out in the burning: and the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy. 26But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hair in the bright spot, and it is no lower than the skin, but is dim; then the priest shall shut him up seven days: 27and the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: if it spread abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy. 28And if the bright spot stay in its place, and is not spread in the skin, but is dim; it is the rising of the burning, and the priest shall pronounce him clean: for it is the scar of the burning. 29And when a man or woman has a plague upon the head or upon the beard, 30then the priest shall look on the plague; and, behold, if the appearance thereof be deeper than the skin, and there is in it yellow thin hair, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a scall, it is leprosy of the head or of the beard. 31And if the priest look on the plague of the scall, and, behold, the appearance thereof is not deeper than the skin, and there be no black hair in it, then the priest shall shut up him that has the plague of the scall seven days: 32And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague; and, behold, if the scall is not spread, and there is no yellow hair in it, and the appearance of the scall is not deeper than the skin, 33then he shall be shaved, but the scall shall he not shave; and the priest shall shut up him that has the scall seven days more: 34and in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall; and, behold, if the scall is not spread in the skin, and the appearance thereof is not deeper than the skin; then the priest shall pronounce him clean: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean. 35But if the scall spread abroad in the skin after his cleansing, 36then the priest shall look on him; and, behold, if the scall is spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for the yellow hair; he is unclean. 37But if in his eyes the scall is at a stay, and black hair is grown up therein; the scall is healed, he is clean: and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

38And when a man or a woman has in the skin of the flesh bright spots, even white bright spots; 39then the priest shall look; and, behold, if the bright spots in the skin of their flesh is of a dull white, it is a tetter, it has broken out in the skin; he is clean. 40And if a manís hair is fallen off his head, he is bald; yet is he clean. 41And if his hair is fallen off from the front part of his head, he is forehead bald; yet is he clean. 42But if there is in the bald head, or the bald forehead, a reddish-white plague; it is leprosy breaking out in his bald head, or his bald forehead. 43Then the priest shall look upon him; and, behold, if the rising of the plague be reddish-white in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, as the appearance of leprosy in the skin of the flesh; 44he is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall surely pronounce him unclean; his plague is in his head. 45And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and the hair of his head shall go free, and he shall cover his upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean. 46All the days wherein the plague is in him he shall be unclean; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his dwelling be.

47The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it be a woollen garment, or a linen garment; 48whether it be in warp, or woof; of linen, or of woollen; whether in a skin, or in anything made of skin; 49if the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin; it is the plague of leprosy, and shall be showed unto the priest. 50And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up that which has the plague seven days: 51and he shall look on the plague on the seventh day: if the plague be spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in the skin, whatever service skin is used for; the plague is a fretting leprosy; it is unclean. 52And he shall burn the garment, whether the warp or the woof, in woollen or in linen, or anything of skin, wherein the plague is: for it is a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the fire. 53And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin; 54then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more: 55and the priest shall look, after that the plague 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: it is a fret, whether the bareness is within or without. 56And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague is dim after the washing thereof, then he shall rend it out of the garment, or out of the skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof: 57and if it appear still in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin, it is breaking out: you shall burn that wherein the plague is with fire. 58And the garment, either the warp, or the woof, or whatsoever thing of skin it be, which you shall wash, if the plague be departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean. 59This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the warp, or the woof, or anything of skin, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

 

14 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing: he shall be brought unto the priest: 3and the priest shall go forth out of the camp; and the priest shall look; and, behold, if the plague of leprosy be healed in the leper, 4then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two living clean birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop: 5And the priest shall command to kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water. 6As 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: 7And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let go the living bird into the open field. 8And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off all his hair, and bathe himself in water; and he shall be clean: and after that he shall come into the camp, but shall dwell outside his tent seven days. 9And it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall shave off: and he shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and he shall be clean.

10And on the eighth day he shall take two he-lambs without blemish, and one ewe-lamb a year old without blemish, and three tenth parts of an E-phah of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with oil, and one log of oil. 11And the priest that cleanses him shall set the man that is to be cleansed, and those things, before Jehovah, at the door of the tent of meeting. 12And the priest shall take one of the he-lambs, and offer him for a trespass-offering, and the log of oil, and wave them for a wave-offering before Jehovah: 13and he shall kill the he-lamb in the place where they kill the sin-offering and the burnt-offering, in the place of the sanctuary: for as the sin-offering is the priestís, so is the trespass-offering: it is most holy: 14and the priest shall take of the blood of the trespass-offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot. 15And the priest shall take of the log of oil, and pour it into the palm of his own left hand; 16and 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 Jehovah: 17and of the rest of the oil that is in his hand shall the priest put upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the blood of the trespass-offering: 18and the rest of the oil that is in the priestís hand he shall put upon the head of him that is to be cleansed: and the priest shall make atonement for him before Jehovah. 19And the priest shall offer the sin-offering, and make atonement for him that is to be cleansed because of his uncleanness: and afterward he shall kill the burnt-offering; 20and the priest shall offer the burnt-offering and the meal-offering upon the altar: and the priest shall make atonement for him, and he shall be clean.

21And if he be poor, and cannot get so much, then he shall take one he-lamb for a trespass-offering to be waved, to make atonement for him, and one tenth part of an E-phah of fine flour mingled with oil for a meal-offering, and a log of oil; 22and 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. 23And on the eighth day he shall bring them for his cleansing unto the priest, unto the door of the tent of meeting, before Jehovah: 24and the priest shall take the lamb of the trespass-offering, and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave-offering before Jehovah. 25And he shall kill the lamb of the trespass-offering; and the priest shall take of the blood of the trespass-offering, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot. 26And the priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his own left hand; 27and the priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil that is in his left hand seven times before Jehovah: 28and the priest shall put of the oil that is in his hand upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the place of the blood of the trespass-offering: 29and the rest of the oil that is in the priestís hand he shall put upon the head of him that is to be cleansed, to make atonement for him before Jehovah. 30And he shall offer one of the turtle-doves, or of the young pigeons, such as he is able to get, 31even such as he is able to get, the one for a sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering, with the meal-offering: and the priest shall make atonement for him that is to be cleansed before Jehovah. 32This is the law of him in whom is the plague of leprosy, who is not able to get that which pertains to his cleansing.

33And Jehovah spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 34When you are 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; 35then he that owns the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, There seems to me to be as it were a plague in the house. 36And the priest shall command that they empty the house, before the priest goes in 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: 37and he shall look on the plague; and, behold, if the plague is in the walls of the house with hollow streaks, greenish or reddish, and the appearance thereof is lower than the wall; 38then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house, and shut up the house seven days. 39And the priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall look; and, behold, if the plague be spread in the walls of the house; 40then the priest shall command that they take out the stones in which the plague is, and cast them into an unclean place without the city: 41and he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and they shall pour out the mortar, that they scrape off, without the city into an unclean place: 42and 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. 43And if the plague come again, and break out in the house, after that he has taken out the stones, and after he has scraped the house, and after it is plastered; 44then the priest shall come in and look; and, behold, if the plague be spread in the house, it is a fretting leprosy in the house: it is unclean. 45And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber thereof, and all the mortar of the house; and he shall carry them forth out of the city into an unclean place. 46Moreover he that goes into the house all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the even. 47And he that lies in the house shall wash his clothes; and he that eats in the house shall wash his clothes. 48And if the priest shall come in, and look, 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. 49And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop: 50and he shall kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water: 51and 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: 52and 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: 53but he shall let the living bird go out of the city into the open field: so shall he make atonement for the house; and it shall be clean.

54This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and for a scall, 55and for the leprosy of a garment, and for a house, 56and for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot; 57to teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean: this is the law of leprosy.

 

15 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any man has an issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he is unclean. 3And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his flesh run with his issue, or his flesh is stopped from his issue, it is his uncleanness. 4Every bed whereon he that has the issue lies shall be unclean; and everything whereon he sits shall be unclean. 5And whoever touches his bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 6And he that sits on anything whereon he that has the issue sat shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 7And he that touches the flesh of him that has the issue shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 8And if he that has the issue spit upon him that is clean, then he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 9And what saddle soever he that has the issue rides upon shall be unclean. 10And whoever touches anything that was under him shall be unclean until the even: and he that bears those things shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 11And whomsoever he that has the issue touches, without having rinsed his hands in water, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 12And the earthen vessel, which he that has the issue touches, shall be broken; and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water. 13And when he that has an issue is cleansed of his issue, then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes; and he shall bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean. 14And on the eighth day he shall take to him two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, and come before Jehovah unto the door of the tent of meeting, and give them unto the priest: 15and the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering; and the priest shall make atonement for him before Jehovah for his issue. 16And if any manís seed of copulation go out from him, then he shall bathe all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even. 17And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of copulation, shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the even. 18The woman also with whom a man shall lie with seed of copulation, they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the even.

19And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood, she shall be in her impurity seven days: and whoever touches her shall be unclean until the even. 20And everything that she lies upon in her impurity shall be unclean: everything also that she sits upon shall be unclean. 21And whoever touches her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 22And whoever touches anything that she sits upon shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 23And if it be on the bed, or on anything whereon she sits, when he touches it, he shall be unclean until the even. 24And if any man lie with her, and her impurity be upon him, he shall be unclean seven days; and every bed whereon he lies shall be unclean. 25And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days not in the time of her impurity, or if she have an issue beyond the time of her impurity; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness she shall be as in the days of her impurity: she is unclean. 26Every bed whereon she lies all the days of her issue shall be unto her as the bed of her impurity: and everything whereon she sits shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her impurity. 27And whoever touches those things shall be unclean, and shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 28But if she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself seven days, and after that she shall be clean. 29And on the eighth day she shall take unto her two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, and bring them unto the priest, to the door of the tent of meeting. 30And the priest shall offer the one for a sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering; and the priest shall make atonement for her before Jehovah for the issue of her uncleanness. 31Thus shall you separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness, that they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile my tabernacle that is in the midst of them. 32This is the law of him that has an issue, and of him whose seed of copulation goes from him, so that he is unclean thereby; 33and of her that is sick with her impurity, and of him that has an issue, of the man, and of the woman, and of him that lies with her that is unclean.

 

16 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they drew near before Jehovah, and died; 2and Jehovah said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron your brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the veil, before the mercy-seat which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy-seat. 3Herewith shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin-offering, and a ram for a burnt-offering. 4He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with the linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: they are the holy garments; and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and put them on.

5And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two he-goats for a sin-offering, and one ram for a burnt-offering. 6And Aaron shall present the bullock of the sin-offering, which is for himself, and make atonement for himself, and for his house. 7And he shall take the two goats, and set them before Jehovah at the door of the tent of meeting. 8And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for Jehovah, and the other lot for Azazel. 9And Aaron shall present the goat upon which the lot fell for Jehovah, and offer him for a sin-offering. 10But the goat, on which the lot fell for Azazel, shall be set alive before Jehovah, to make atonement for him, to send him away for Azazel into the wilderness. 11And Aaron shall present the bullock of the sin-offering, which is for himself, and shall make atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin-offering which is for himself: 12and he shall take a censer full of coals of fire from off the altar before Jehovah, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the veil: 13and he shall put the incense upon the fire before Jehovah, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy-seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not: 14and he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy-seat on the east side; and before the mercy-seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.

15Then shall he kill the goat of the sin-offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the veil, and do with his blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy-seat, and before the mercy-seat: 16and he shall make atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleannesses of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions, even all their sins: and so shall he do for the tent of meeting, that dwells with them in the midst of their uncleannesses. 17And there shall be no man in the tent of meeting when he goes in to make atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and has made atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the assembly of Israel. 18And he shall go out unto the altar that is before Jehovah, and make atonement for it, and shall take of the blood of the bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about. 19And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleannesses of the children of Israel.

20And when he has made an end of atoning for the holy place, and the tent of meeting, and the altar, he shall present the live goat: 21and Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, even all their sins; and he shall put them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a man that is in readiness into the wilderness: 22and the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a solitary land: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness. 23And Aaron shall come into the tent of meeting, and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there: 24and he shall bathe his flesh in water in a holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt-offering and the burnt-offering of the people, and make atonement for himself and for the people. 25And the fat of the sin-offering shall he burn upon the altar. 26And he that lets the goat go for Azazel shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp. 27And the bullock of the sin-offering, and the goat of the sin-offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall be carried forth without the camp; and they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung. 28And he that burns them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp.

29And it shall be a statute for ever unto you: in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and shall do no manner of work, the home-born, or the stranger that sojourns among you: 30for on this day shall atonement be made for you, to cleanse you; from all your sins shall you be clean before Jehovah. 31It is a Sabbath of solemn rest unto you, and you shall afflict your souls; it is a statute for ever. 32And the priest, who shall be anointed and who shall be consecrated to be priest in his fatherís stead, shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen garments, even the holy garments: 33and he shall make atonement for the holy sanctuary; and he shall make atonement for the tent of meeting and for the altar; and he shall make atonement for the priests and for all the people of the assembly. 34And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make atonement for the children of Israel because of all their sins once in the year. And he did as Jehovah commanded Moses.

 

17 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the children of Israel, and say unto them: This is the thing which Jehovah has commanded, saying, 3What man soever there be of the house of Israel, that kills an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that kills it without the camp, 4and has not brought it unto the door of the tent of meeting, to offer it as an oblation unto Jehovah before the tabernacle of Jehovah: blood shall be imputed unto that man; he has shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his people: 5To the end that the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices, which they sacrifice in the open field, even that they may bring them unto Jehovah, unto the door of the tent of meeting, unto the priest, and sacrifice them for sacrifices of peace-offerings unto Jehovah. 6And the priest shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar of Jehovah at the door of the tent of meeting, and burn the fat for a sweet savor unto Jehovah. 7And they shall no more sacrifice their sacrifices unto the he-goats, after which they play the harlot. This shall be a statute forever unto them throughout their generations. 8And you shall say unto them, Whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, that offers a burnt-offering or sacrifice, 9and brings it not unto the door of the tent of meeting, to sacrifice it unto Jehovah; that man shall be cut off from his people.

10And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, that eats any manner of blood, I will set my face against that soul that eats blood, and will cut him off from among his people. 11For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes atonement by reason of the life. 12Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Not a soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourns among you eat blood. 13And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, who takes in hunting any beast or bird that may be eaten; he shall pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust. 14For as to the life of all flesh, the blood thereof is all one with the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, you shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh; for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whoever eats it shall be cut off. 15And every soul that eats that which dies of itself, or that which is torn of beasts, whether he be home-born or a sojourner, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even: then shall he be clean. 16But if he wash them not, nor bathe his flesh, then he shall bear his iniquity.

 

18 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am Jehovah your God. 3You shall not do after the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein you dwelt: and you shall not do after the doings of the land of Canaan, where I bring you; neither shall you walk in their statutes. 4My ordinances you shall do, and my statutes you shall keep, to walk in them: I am Jehovah your God. 5you shall therefore keep my statutes, and my ordinances; which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am Jehovah.

6None of you shall approach near to any that are of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am Jehovah. 7The nakedness of your father, even the nakedness of your mother, shall you not uncover: she is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness. 8The nakedness of your fatherís wife shall you not uncover: it is your fatherís nakedness. 9The nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness you shall not uncover. 10The nakedness of your sonís daughter, or of your daughterís daughter, even their nakedness you shall not uncover: for theirís is your own nakedness. 11The nakedness of your fatherís wifeís daughter, begotten of your father, she is your sister, you shall not uncover her nakedness. 12you shall not uncover the nakedness of your fatherís sister: she is your fatherís near kinswoman. 13you shall not uncover the nakedness of your motherís sister: for she is your motherís near kinswoman. 14you shall not uncover the nakedness of your fatherís brother, you shall not approach to his wife: she is your aunt. 15you shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter-in-law: she is your sonís wife; you shall not uncover her nakedness. 16you shall not uncover the nakedness of your brotherís wife: it is your brotherís nakedness. 17you shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter; you shall not take her sonís daughter, or her daughterís daughter, to uncover her nakedness; they are near kinswomen: it is wickedness. 18And you shall not take a wife to her sister, to be a rival to her, to uncover her nakedness, besides the other in her life-time.

19And you shall not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is impure by her uncleanness. 20And you shall not lie carnally with your neighborís wife, to defile yourself with her. 21And you shall not give any of your seed to make them pass through the fire to Molech; neither shall you profane the name of your God: I am Jehovah. 22You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is an abomination. 23And you shall not lie with any beast to defile yourself therewith; neither shall any woman stand before a beast, to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 24Defile not you yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out from before you; 25And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land vomits out her inhabitants. 26You therefore shall keep my statutes and my ordinances, and shall not do any of these abominations; neither the home-born, nor the stranger that sojourns among you; 27(for all these abominations have the men of the land done, that were before you, and the land is defiled); 28that the land vomit not you out also, when you defile it, as it vomited out the nation that was before you. 29For whoever shall do any of these abominations, even the souls that do them shall be cut off from among their people. 30Therefore shall you keep my charge, that you practise not any of these abominable customs, which were practised before you, and that you defile not yourselves therein: I am Jehovah your God.

 

19 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, you shall be holy; for I Jehovah your God am holy. 3you shall fear every man his mother, and his father; and you shall keep my Sabbaths: I am Jehovah your God. 4Turn not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am Jehovah your God. 5And when you offer a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto Jehovah, you shall offer it that you may be accepted. 6It shall be eaten the same day you offer it, and on the next day: and if anything remain until the third day, it shall be burnt with fire. 7And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is an abomination; it shall not be accepted: 8but every one that eats it shall bear his iniquity, because he has profaned the holy thing of Jehovah: and that soul shall be cut off from his people. 9And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field, neither shall you gather the gleaning of your harvest. 10And you shall not glean your vineyard, neither shall you gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am Jehovah your God.

11you shall not steal; neither shall you deal falsely, nor lie one to another. 12And you shall not swear by my name falsely, and profane the name of your God: I am Jehovah. 13you shall not oppress your neighbor, nor rob him: the wages of a hired servant shall not abide with you all night until the morning. 14you shall not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind; but you shall fear your God: I am Jehovah. 15you shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: you shall not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty; but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor. 16You shall not go up and down as a talebearer among your people: neither shall you stand against the blood of your neighbor: I am Jehovah. 17You shall not hate your brother in your heart: you shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. 18You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people; but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am Jehovah.

19You shall keep my statutes. You shall not let your cattle gender with a diverse kind: you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed: neither shall there come upon you a garment of two kinds of things mingled together. 20And whoever lies carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to a husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; they shall be punished; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free. 21And he shall bring his trespass-offering unto Jehovah, unto the door of the tent of meeting, even a ram for a trespass-offering. 22And the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass-offering before Jehovah for his sin which he has sinned: and the sin which he has sinned shall be forgiven him. 23And when you shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then you shall count the fruit thereof as their uncircumcision: three years shall they be as uncircumcised unto you; it shall not be eaten. 24But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy, for giving praise unto Jehovah. 25And in the fifth year shall you eat of the fruit thereof, that it may yield unto you the increase thereof: I am Jehovah your God. 26You shall not eat anything with the blood: neither shall you use enchantments, nor practise augury. 27You shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shall you mar the corners of your beard. 28You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am Jehovah. 29Profane not your daughter, to make her a harlot; unless the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.

30You shall keep my Sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary; I am Jehovah. 31You are not to turn unto them that have familiar spirits, nor unto the wizards; seek them not out, to be defiled by them: I am Jehovah your God. 32You shall rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of the old man, and you shall fear your God: I am Jehovah. 33And if a stranger sojourn with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. 34The stranger that sojourns with you shall be unto you as the home-born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt: I am Jehovah your God. 35You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in measures of length, of weight, or of quantity. 36Just balances, just weights, a just E-phah, and a just hin, shall you have: I am Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. 37And you shall observe all my statutes, and all my ordinances, and do them: I am Jehovah.

 

20 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Moreover, you shall say to the children of Israel, whoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that gives of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3I also will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he has given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. 4And if the people of the land do at all hide their eyes from that man, when he gives of his seed unto Molech, and do not put him to death; 5then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that play the harlot after him, to play the harlot with Molech, from among their people. 6And the soul that turns unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto the wizards, to play the harlot after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. 7Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be holy; for I am Jehovah your God. 8And you shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am Jehovah who sanctifies you. 9For every one that curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death: he has cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.

10And the man that commits adultery with another manís wife, even he that commits adultery with his neighborís wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. 11And the man that lies with his fatherís wife has uncovered his fatherís nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. 12And if a man lie with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have worked confusion; their blood shall be upon them. 13And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. 14And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you. 15And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and you shall slay the beast. 16And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, you shall kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. 17And if a man shall take his sister, his fatherís daughter, or his motherís daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a shameful thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of the children of their people: he has uncovered his sisterís nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity. 18And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he has made naked her fountain, and she has uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people. 19And you shall not uncover the nakedness of your motherís sister, nor of your fatherís sister; for he has made naked his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity. 20And if a man shall lie with his uncleís wife, he has uncovered his uncleís nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless. 21And if a man shall take his brotherís wife, it is impurity: he has uncovered his brotherís nakedness; they shall be childless.

22You shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my ordinances, and do them; that the land, where I brought you to dwell in, not vomit you out. 23And you shall not walk in the customs of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they did all these things, and therefore I abhorred them. 24But I have said unto you, you shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land flowing with milk and honey: I am Jehovah your God, who has separated you from the peoples. 25You shall therefore make a distinction between the clean beast and the unclean, and between the unclean fowl and the clean: and you shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by bird, or by anything wherewith the ground teems, which I have separated from you as unclean. 26And you shall be holy unto me: for I, Jehovah, am holy, and have set you apart from the peoples, that you should be mine. 27A man also or a woman that has a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones; their blood shall be upon them.

 

21 And Jehovah said unto Moses, Speak unto the priests, the sons of Aaron, and say unto them, None shall defile himself for the dead among his people; 2except for his kin, that is near unto him, for his mother, and for his father, and for his son, and for his daughter, and for his brother, 3and for his virgin sister, that is near unto him, and that has had no husband; for her may he defile himself. 4He shall not defile himself, being a chief man among his people, to profane himself. 5They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh. 6They shall be holy unto their God, and not profane the name of their God; for the offerings of Jehovah made by fire, the bread of their God, they do offer: therefore they shall be holy. 7They shall not take a woman that is a harlot, or profane; neither shall they take a woman put away from her husband: for he is holy unto his God. 8You shall sanctify him therefore; for he offers the bread of your God: he shall be holy unto you: for I Jehovah, who sanctify you, am holy. 9And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the harlot, she also profanes her father: she shall be burnt with fire.

10And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil is poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not let the hair of his head go free, nor rend his clothes; 11neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself for his father, or for his mother; 12neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the crown of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am Jehovah. 13And he shall take a wife in her virginity. 14A widow, or one divorced, or a profane woman, a harlot, these shall he not take: but a virgin of his own people shall he take as wife. 15And he shall not profane his seed among his people: for I am Jehovah who sanctifies him.

16And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 17Speak unto Aaron, saying, whoever he be of your seed throughout their generations that has a blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God. 18For whatsoever man he be that has a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that has a flat nose, or anything superfluous, 19or a man that is broken-footed, or broken-handed, 20or crook-backed, or a dwarf, or that has a blemish in his eye, or is scurvy, or scabbed, or has his stones broken; 21no man of the seed of Aaron the priest, that has a blemish, shall come near to offer the offerings of Jehovah made by fire: he has a blemish; he shall not come near to offer the bread of his God. 22He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy: 23only he shall not go in unto the veil, nor come near unto the altar, because he has a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for I am Jehovah who sanctifies them. 24So Moses spoke unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel.

 

22 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel, which they hallow unto me, and that they profane not my holy name: I am Jehovah. 3Say unto them, whoever he be of all your seed throughout your generations, that approaches unto the holy things, which the children of Israel hallow unto Jehovah, having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from before me: I am Jehovah. 4What man soever of the seed of Aaron who is a leper, or has an issue; he shall not eat of the holy things, until he is clean. And whoever touches anything that is unclean by the dead, or a man whose seed goes from him; 5or whoever touches any creeping thing, whereby he may be made unclean, or a man of whom he may take uncleanness, whatsoever uncleanness he has; 6the soul that touches any such shall be unclean until the even, and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he bathe his flesh in water. 7And when the sun is down, he shall be clean; and afterward he shall eat of the holy things, because it is his bread. 8That which dies of itself, or is torn of beasts, he shall not eat, to defile himself therewith: I am Jehovah. 9They shall therefore keep my charge, unless they bear sin for it, and die therein, if they profane it: I am Jehovah who sanctifies them.

10There shall no stranger eat of the holy thing: a sojourner of the priestís, or a hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing. 11But if a priest buy any soul, the purchase of his money, he shall eat of it; and such as are born in his house, they shall eat of his bread. 12And if a priestís daughter be married unto a stranger, she shall not eat of the heave-offering of the holy things. 13But if a priestís daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no child, and be returned unto her fatherís house, as in her youth, she shall eat of her fatherís bread: but there shall no stranger eat thereof. 14And if a man eat of the holy thing unwittingly, then he shall put the fifth part thereof unto it, and shall give unto the priest the holy thing. 15And they shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel, which they offer unto Jehovah, 16and so cause them to bear the iniquity that brings guilt, when they eat their holy things: for I am Jehovah who sanctifies them.

17And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 18Speak unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel, and say unto them, whoever he is of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners in Israel, that offers his oblation, whether it is any of their vows, or any of their freewill-offerings, which they offer unto Jehovah for a burnt-offering; 19that you may be accepted, you shall offer a male without blemish, of the bullocks, of the sheep, or of the goats. 20But whatsoever has a blemish, that shall you not offer: for it shall not be acceptable for you. 21And whoever offers a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto Jehovah to accomplish a vow, or for a freewill-offering, of the herd or of the flock, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein. 22Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, you shall not offer these unto Jehovah, nor make an offering by fire of them upon the altar unto Jehovah. 23Either a bullock or a lamb that has anything superfluous or lacking in his parts, that may you offer for a freewill-offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted. 24That which has its stones bruised, or crushed, or broken, or cut, you shall not offer unto Jehovah; neither shall you do this in your land. 25Neither from the hand of a foreigner shall you offer the bread of your God of any of these; because their corruption is in them, there is a blemish in them: they shall not be accepted for you. 26And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 27When a bullock, or a sheep, or a goat, is brought forth, then it shall be seven days under the dam; and from the eighth day and thenceforth it shall be accepted for the oblation of an offering made by fire unto Jehovah. 28And whether it be cow or ewe, you shall not kill it and its young both in one day. 29And when you sacrifice a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto Jehovah, you shall sacrifice it that you may be accepted. 30On the same day it shall be eaten; you shall leave none of it until the morning: I am Jehovah. 31Therefore shall you keep my commandments, and do them: I am Jehovah. 32And you shall not profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel: I am Jehovah who hallows you, 33who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am Jehovah.

 

23 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, The set feasts of Jehovah, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my set feasts. 3Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation; you shall do no manner of work: it is a Sabbath unto Jehovah in all your dwellings.

4These are the set feasts of Jehovah, even holy convocations, which you shall proclaim in their appointed season. 5In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, is Jehovahís Passover. 6And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto Jehovah: seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. 7In the first day you shall have a holy convocation: you shall do no servile work. 8But you shall offer an offering made by fire unto Jehovah seven days: in the seventh day is a holy convocation; you shall do no servile work. 9And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 10Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When you are come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then you shall bring the sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest unto the priest: 11and he shall wave the sheaf before Jehovah, to be accepted for you: on the next day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. 12And in the day when you wave the sheaf, you shall offer a he-lamb without blemish a year old for a burnt-offering unto Jehovah. 13And the meal-offering thereof shall be two tenth parts of an E-phah of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto Jehovah for a sweet savor; and the drink-offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin. 14And you shall eat neither bread, nor parched grain, nor fresh ears, until this selfsame day, until you have brought the oblation of your God: it is a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

15And you shall count unto you from the next day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave-offering; seven Sabbaths shall there be complete: 16even unto the next day after the seventh Sabbath shall you number fifty days; and you shall offer a new meal-offering unto Jehovah. 17you shall bring out of your habitations two wave-loaves of two tenth parts of an E-phah: they shall be of fine flour, they shall be baked with leaven, for first-fruits unto Jehovah. 18And you shall present with the bread seven lambs without blemish a year old, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be a burnt-offering unto Jehovah, with their meal-offering, and their drink-offerings, even an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah. 19And you shall offer one he-goat for a sin-offering, and two he-lambs a year old for a sacrifice of peace-offerings. 20And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first-fruits for a wave-offering before Jehovah, with the two lambs: they shall be holy to Jehovah for the priest. 21And you shall make proclamation on the selfsame day; there shall be a holy convocation unto you; you shall do no servile work: it is a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. 22And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field, neither shall you gather the gleaning of your harvest: you shall leave them for the poor, and for the sojourner: I am Jehovah your God.

23And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 24Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, shall be a solemn rest unto you, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25you shall do no servile work; and you shall offer an offering made by fire unto Jehovah. 26And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 27Howbeit on the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement: it shall be a holy convocation unto you, and you shall afflict your souls; and you shall offer an offering made by fire unto Jehovah. 28And you shall do no manner of work in that same day; for it is a day of atonement, to make atonement for you before Jehovah your God. 29For whatsoever soul it is that shall not be afflicted in that same day; he shall be cut off from his people. 30And whatsoever soul it is that does any manner of work in that same day, that soul will I destroy from among his people. 31you shall do no manner of work: it is a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 32It shall be unto you a Sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall you keep your Sabbath.

33And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 34Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto Jehovah. 35On the first day it shall be a holy convocation: you shall do no servile work. 36Seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire unto Jehovah: on the eighth day it shall be a holy convocation unto you; and you shall offer an offering made by fire unto Jehovah: it is a solemn assembly; you shall do no servile work. 37These are the set feasts of Jehovah, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto Jehovah, a burnt-offering, and a meal-offering, a sacrifice, and drink-offerings, each on its own day; 38besides the Sabbaths of Jehovah, and besides your gifts, and besides all your vows, and besides all your freewill-offerings, which you give unto Jehovah. 39Howbeit on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruits of the land, you shall keep the feast of Jehovah seven days: on the first day it shall be a solemn rest, and on the eighth day it shall be a solemn rest. 40And you shall take on the first day the fruit of goodly trees, branches of palm-trees, and boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before Jehovah your God seven days. 41And you shall keep it a feast unto Jehovah seven days in the year: it is a statute for ever throughout your generations; you shall keep it in the seventh month. 42you shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are home-born in Israel shall dwell in booths; 43that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am Jehovah your God. 44And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the set feasts of Jehovah.

 

24 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto you pure olive oil beaten for the light, to cause a lamp to burn continually. 3Without the veil of the testimony, in the tent of meeting, shall Aaron keep it in order from evening to morning before Jehovah continually: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations. 4He shall keep in order the lamps upon the pure candlestick before Jehovah continually. 5And you shall take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth parts of an E-phah shall be in one cake. 6And you shall set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before Jehovah. 7And you shall put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be to the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto Jehovah. 8Every Sabbath day he shall set it in order before Jehovah continually; it is on the behalf of the children of Israel, an everlasting covenant. 9And it shall be for Aaron and his sons; and they shall eat it in a holy place: for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of Jehovah made by fire by a perpetual statute.

10And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel; and the son of the Israelitish woman and a man of Israel argued together in the camp: 11and the son of the Israelitish woman blasphemed the Name, and cursed; and they brought him unto Moses. And his motherís name was She-lo-mith, the daughter of Dib-ri, of the tribe of Dan. 12And they put him in ward, that it might be declared unto them at the mouth of Jehovah. 13And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 14Bring forth him that has cursed without the camp; and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him. 15And you shall speak unto the children of Israel, saying, whoever curses his God shall bear his sin. 16And he that blasphenes the name of Jehovah, he shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall certainly stone him: the sojourner as well as the home-born, when he blasphenes the name of Jehovah, he shall be put to death. 17And he that would strike any man mortally shall surely be put to death. 18And he that strike a beast mortally shall make it good, life for life. 19And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbor; as he has done, so shall it be done to him: 20breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; as he has caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be rendered unto him. 21And he that kills a beast shall make it good: and he that kills a man shall be put to death. 22You shall have one manner of law, for the sojourner as well as for the home-born: for I am Jehovah your God. 23And Moses spoke to the children of Israel; and they brought forth him that had cursed out of the camp, and stoned him with stones. And the children of Israel did as Jehovah commanded Moses.

 

25 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses in mount Si-nai, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When you come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a Sabbath unto Jehovah. 3Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather in the fruits thereof; 4but the seventh year shall be a Sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a Sabbath unto Jehovah: you shall neither sow your field, nor prune your vineyard. 5That which grows of itself of your harvest you shall not reap, and the grapes of your undressed vine you shall not gather: it shall be a year of solemn rest for the land. 6And the Sabbath of the land shall be for food for you; for you, and for your servant and for your maid, and for your hired servant and for your stranger, who sojourn with you. 7And for your cattle, and for the beasts that are in your land, shall all the increase thereof be for food.

8And you shall number seven Sabbaths of years unto you, seven times seven years; and there shall be unto you the days of seven Sabbaths of years, even forty and nine years. 9Then shall you send abroad the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month; in the day of atonement shall you send abroad the trumpet throughout all your land. 10And you shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and you shall return every man unto his possession, and you shall return every man unto his family. 11A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: you shall not sow, neither reap that which grows of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of the undressed vines. 12For it is a jubilee; it shall be holy unto you: you shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. 13In this year of jubilee you shall return every man unto his possession. 14And if you sell anything unto your neighbor, or buy of your neighborís hand, you shall not wrong one another. 15According to the number of years after the jubilee you shall buy of your neighbor, and according unto the number of years of the crops he shall sell unto you. 16According to the multitude of the years you shall increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of the years you shall diminish the price of it; for the number of the crops does he sell unto you. 17And you shall not wrong one another; but you shall fear your God: for I am Jehovah your God. 18Therefore you shall do my statutes, and keep my ordinances and do them; and you shall dwell in the land in safety. 19And the land shall yield its fruit, and you shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety. 20And if you shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? Behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase; 21then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for the three years. 22And you shall sow the eighth year, and eat of the fruits, the old store; until the ninth year, until its fruits come in, you shall eat the old store.

23And the land shall not be sold in perpetuity; for the land is mine: for you are strangers and sojourners with me. 24And in all the land of your possession you shall grant a redemption for the land. 25If your brother become poor, and sell some of his possession, then shall his kinsman that is next unto him come, and shall redeem that which his brother has sold. 26And if a man have no one to redeem it, and he become rich and find sufficiency to redeem it; 27then let him reckon the years of the sale thereof, and restore the overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; and he shall return unto his possession. 28But if he is not able to get it back for himself, then that which he has sold shall remain in the hand of him that has bought it until the year of jubilee: and in the jubilee it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession. 29And if a man sell a dwelling-house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; for a full year shall he have the right of redemption. 30And if it is not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city shall be made sure in perpetuity to him that bought it, throughout his generations: it shall not go out in the jubilee. 31But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them shall be reckoned with the fields of the country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubilee. 32Nevertheless the cities of the Levites, the houses of the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time. 33And if one of the Levites redeem, then the house that was sold, and the city of his possession, shall go out in the jubilee; for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the children of Israel. 34But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession. 35And if your brother become poor, and his hand fail with you; then you shall uphold him: as a stranger and a sojourner shall he live with you. 36Take no interest of him or increase, but fear your God; that your brother may live with you. 37You shall not give him your money upon interest, nor give him your goods for increase. 38I am Jehovah your God, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.

39And if your brother become poor with you, and sell himself unto you; you shall not make him to serve as a bond-servant. 40As a hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with you; he shall serve with you unto the year of jubilee: 41then shall he go out from you, he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return. 42For they are my servants, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen. 43You shall not rule over him with rigor, but shall fear your God. 44And as for your bondmen, and your bondmaids, whom you shall have; of the nations that are round about you, of them shall you buy bondmen and bondmaids. 45Moreover of the children of the strangers that sojourn among you, of them shall you buy, and of their families that are with you, which they have begotten in your land: and they shall be your possession. 46And you shall make them an inheritance for your children after you, to hold for a possession; of them shall you take your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel you shall not rule, one over another, with rigor. 47And if a stranger or sojourner with you become rich, and your brother become poor beside him, and sell himself unto the stranger or sojourner with you, or to the stock of the strangerís family; 48after that he is sold he may be redeemed: one of his brethren may redeem him; 49or his uncle, or his uncleís son, may redeem him, or any that is near of kin unto him of his family may redeem him; or if he become rich, he may redeem himself. 50And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he sold himself to him unto the year of jubilee: and the price of his sale shall be according unto the number of years; according to the time of a hired servant shall he be with him. 51If there be yet many years, according unto them he shall give back the price of his redemption out of the money that he was bought for. 52And if there remain but a few years unto the year of jubilee, then he shall reckon with him; according unto his years shall he give back the price of his redemption. 53As a servant hired year by year shall he be with him: he shall not rule with rigor over him in your sight. 54And if he is not redeemed by these means, then he shall go out in the year of jubilee, he, and his children with him. 55For unto me the children of Israel are servants; they are my servants whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: I am Jehovah your God.

 

26 You shall make to you no idols, neither shall you rear up a graven image, or a pillar, neither shall you place any figured stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am Jehovah your God. 2You shall keep my Sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am Jehovah. 3If you walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; 4then I will give your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. 5And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time; and you shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. 6And I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will cause evil beasts to cease out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. 7And you shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. 8And five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall chase ten thousand; and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. 9And I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and will establish my covenant with you. 10And you shall eat old store long kept, and you shall bring forth the old because of the new. 11And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you. 12And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and you shall be my people. 13I am Jehovah your God, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bars of your yoke, and made you go upright.

14But if you will not listen to me, and will not do all these commandments; 15and if you shall reject my statutes, and if your soul abhor my ordinances, so that you will not do all my commandments, but break my covenant; 16I also will do this unto you: I will appoint terror over you, even consumption and fever, that shall consume the eyes, and make the soul to pine away; and you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17And I will set my face against you, and you shall be struck before your enemies: they that hate you shall rule over you; and you shall flee when none pursues you. 18And if you will not yet for these things listen to me, then I will chastise you seven times more for your sins. 19And I will break the pride of your power: and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass; 20and your strength shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield its increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruit. 21And if you walk contrary unto me, and will not listen to me, I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins. 22And I will send the beast of the field among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your ways shall become desolate. 23And if by these things you will not be reformed unto me, but will walk contrary unto me; 24then will I also walk contrary unto you; and I will strike you, even I, seven times for your sins. 25And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant; and you shall be gathered together within your cities: and I will send the pestilence among you; and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. 26When I break your staff of 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. 27And if you will not for all this listen to me, but walk contrary unto me; 28then I will walk contrary unto you in wrath; and I also will chastise you seven times for your sins. 29And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall you eat. 30And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your sun-images, and cast your dead bodies upon the bodies of your idols; and my soul shall abhor you. 31And I will make your cities a waste, and will bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savor of your sweet odors. 32And I will bring the land into desolation; and your enemies that dwell therein shall be astonished at it. 33And you will I scatter among the nations, and I will draw out the sword after you: and your land shall be a desolation, and your cities shall be a waste. 34Then shall the land enjoy its Sabbaths, as long as it lies desolate, and you are in your enemiesí land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy its Sabbaths. 35As long as it lies desolate it shall have rest, even the rest which it had not in your Sabbaths, when you dwelt upon it. 36And as for them that are left of you, I will send a faintness into their heart in the lands of their enemies: and the sound of a driven leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as one flees from the sword; and they shall fall when none pursues. 37And they shall stumble one upon another, as it were before the sword, when none pursues: and you shall have no power to stand before your enemies. 38And you shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up. 39And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemiesí lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.

40And they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, in their trespass which they trespassed against me, and also that, because they walked contrary unto me, 41I also walked contrary unto them, and brought them into the land of their enemies: if then their uncircumcised heart be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity; *** 42then will I remember my covenant with Jacob; and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land. 43The land also shall be left by them, and shall enjoy its Sabbaths, while it lies desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity; because, even because they rejected my ordinances, and their soul abhorred my statutes. 44And yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them; for I am Jehovah their God; 45but I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am Jehovah. 46These are the statutes and ordinances and laws, which Jehovah made between him and the children of Israel in mount Si-nai by Moses.

 

27 And Jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When a man shall accomplish a vow, the persons shall be for Jehovah by your estimation. 3And your estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even your estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary. 4And if it be a female, then your estimation shall be thirty shekels. 5And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then your estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels. 6And if it be from a month old even unto 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. 7And if it be from sixty years old and upward; if it be a male, then your estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels. 8But if he be poorer than your estimation, then he shall be set before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according to the ability of him that vowed shall the priest value him. 9And if it be a beast, whereof men offer an oblation unto Jehovah, all that any man gives of such unto Jehovah shall be holy. 10He 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 both it and that for which it is changed shall be holy. 11And if it be any unclean beast, of which they do not offer an oblation unto Jehovah, then he shall set the beast before the priest; 12and the priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad: as you the priest value it, so shall it be. 13But if he will indeed redeem it, then he shall add the fifth part thereof unto your estimation.

14And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy unto Jehovah, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad: as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it stand. 15And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of your estimation unto it, and it shall be his. 16And if a man shall sanctify unto Jehovah part of the field of his possession, then your estimation shall be according to the sowing thereof: the sowing of a homer of barley shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver. 17If he does sanctify his field from the year of jubilee, according to your estimation it shall stand. 18But if he sanctify his field after the jubilee, then the priest shall reckon unto him the money according to the years that remain unto the year of jubilee; and an abatement shall be made from your estimation. 19And if he that sanctified the field will indeed redeem it, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of your estimation unto it, and it shall be assured to him. 20And if he will not redeem the field, or if he has sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed any more: 21but the field, when it goes out in the jubilee, shall be holy unto Jehovah, as a field devoted; the possession thereof shall be the priestís. 22And if he sanctify unto Jehovah a field which he has bought, which is not of the field of his possession; 23then the priest shall reckon unto him the worth of your estimation unto the year of jubilee: and he shall give your estimation in that day, as a holy thing unto Jehovah. 24In the year of jubilee the field shall return unto him of whom it was bought, even to him to whom the possession of the land belongs. 25And all your estimations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.

26Only the firstling among beasts, which is made a firstling to Jehovah, no man shall sanctify it; whether it is ox or sheep, it is Jehovahís. 27And if it is of an unclean beast, then he shall ransom it according to your estimation, and shall add unto it the fifth part thereof: or if it be not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to your estimation. 28Notwithstanding, no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto Jehovah of all that he has, whether of man or beast, or of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto Jehovah. 29No one devoted, that shall be devoted from among men, shall be ransomed; he shall surely be put to death. 30And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is Jehovahís: it is holy unto Jehovah. 31And if a man will redeem anything of his tithe, he shall add unto it the fifth part thereof. 32And all the tithe of the herd or the flock, whatsoever passes under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto Jehovah. 33He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and that for which it is changed shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed. 34These are the commandments, which Jehovah commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Si-nai.
