And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took each his censer, and put fire in it, and laid incense on it, and offered strange fire before Yahweh, which he had not commanded them. 2 And there came forth fire from before Yahweh, and devoured them, and they died before Yahweh. 3 Then Moses said to Aaron, This is it that Yahweh 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. 4 And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said to them, Draw near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp. 5 So they drew near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp, as Moses had said. 6 And Moses said to Aaron, and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons, Do not uncover your heads, neither rend your clothes; that you do not die, and that he is not angry with all the congregation: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, mourn the burning which Yahweh has kindled. 7 And you shall not go out from the door of the tent of meeting, lest you die; for the anointing oil of Yahweh is on you. And they did according to the word of Moses.
8 And Yahweh spoke to Aaron, saying, 9 Drink no wine nor strong drink, you, or your sons with you, when you go into the tent of meeting, that you die not: it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations: 10 and that you may make a distinction between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the clean; 11 and that you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which Yahweh has spoken to them by Moses.
12 And Moses spoke to Aaron, and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meal-offering that remains of the offerings of Yahweh made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar; for it is most holy; 13 and you shall eat it in a holy place, because it is your portion, and your sons’ portion, of the offerings of Yahweh made by fire: for so I am commanded. 14 And the wave-breast and the heave-thigh you shall eat in a clean place, you, and your sons, and your daughters with you: for they are given as your portion, and your sons’ portion, out of the sacrifices of the peace-offerings of the children of Israel. 15 The 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 Yahweh: and it shall be yours, and your sons’ with you, as a portion forever; as Yahweh has commanded.
16 And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin-offering, and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and with Ithamar, the sons of Aaron that were left, saying, 17 Why 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 Yahweh? 18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought into the sanctuary inside: you should certainly have eaten it in the sanctuary, as I commanded. 19 And Aaron spoke to Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin-offering and their burnt-offering before Yahweh; and there has happened to me such things as these: and if I had eaten the sin-offering today, would it have been well-pleasing in the sight of Yahweh? 20 And when Moses heard that, it was well-pleasing in his sight.
And Yahweh Spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying to them, 2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, These are the living things which you may eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. 3 Whatever has a split hoof completely divided, and chews the cud, among the beasts, that may you eat. 4 Nevertheless these you shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that have a split hoof: the camel, because it chews the cud but does not have a split hoof, it is unclean to you. 5 And the coney, because it chews the cud but does not have a split hoof it is unclean to you. 6 And the hare, because it chews the cud but does not have a split hoof it is unclean to you. 7 And the swine, because it has a split hoof, completely divided, but chews not the cud, it is unclean to you. 8 Of their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch; they are unclean to you.
9 These may you eat of all that are in the waters: whatever has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, that you may eat.
10 And 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 to you, 11 and they shall be an abomination to you; you shall not eat of their flesh, and their carcasses you shall have in abomination. 12 Whatever has no fins nor scales in the waters, that is an abomination to you.
13 And 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 black vulture, 14 and the kite, and the falcon after its kind, 15 every raven after its kind, 16 and the ostrich, and the night-hawk, and the sea-mew, and the hawk after its kind, 17 and the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl, 18 and the horned owl, and the pelican, and the vulture, 19 and the stork, the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat.
20 All winged creeping things that go upon all fours are an abomination to you. 21 Yet these may you eat of all winged creeping things that go on all fours, which have legs above their feet, with which to leap upon the earth; 22 even these of them you may eat: the locust after its kind, the bald locust after its kind, the cricket after its kind, and the grasshopper after its kind. 23 But all winged creeping things, which have four feet, are an abomination to you.
24 And by these you Shall become unclean: whoever touches the carcass of them shall be unclean until the evening; 25 and whoever bears anything of the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening. 26 Every beast that has a split hoof not completely divided, or does not chew the cud, is unclean to you: every one that touches them shall be unclean. 27 And whatever goes upon its paws, among all beasts that go on all fours, they are unclean to you: whoever touches their carcass shall be unclean until the evening. 28 And he that bears the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening: they are unclean to you.
29 And these are they which are unclean to you among the creeping things that creep on the earth: the weasel, and the mouse, and the great lizard after its kind, 30 and the gecko, and the land-crocodile, and the lizard, and the sand-lizard, and the chameleon. 31 These are they which are unclean to you among all that creep: whoever touches them, when they are dead, shall be unclean until the evening. 32 And on whatever any of them, when they are dead, falls, it shall be unclean; whether it is any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatever vessel it is, with which any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the evening; then shall it be clean. 33 And every earthen vessel, into which any of them falls, whatever is in it shall be unclean, and you shall break it. 34 All food in it 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. 35 And everything on which 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 to you. 36 Nevertheless a fountain or a pit in which is a gathering of water shall be clean: but that which touches their carcass shall be unclean. 37 And if anything of their carcass falls on any sowing seed which is to be sown, it is clean. 38 But if water is put on the seed, and anything of their carcass falls thereon, it is unclean to you.
39 And if any beast, of which you may eat, dies; he that touches the carcass of it shall be unclean until the evening. 40 And he that eats of the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening: also he that bears the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening. 41 And every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth is an abomination; it shall not be eaten. 42 Whatever goes upon the belly, and whatever goes upon all fours, or whatever has many feet, even all creeping things that creep on the earth, them you shall not eat; for they are an abomination. 43 You shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creeps, neither shall you make yourselves unclean with them, that you should be defiled by it. 44 For I am Yahweh your Elohim: sanctify yourselves therefore, and be holy; for I am holy: neither shall you defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that moves upon the earth. 45 For I am Yahweh that brought you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your Elohim: you shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
46 This 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; 47 to 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.
And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, If a woman conceives seed, and bears a man-child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of the impurity of her sickness shall she be unclean. 3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. 4 And 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 are fulfilled. 5 But if she bears a maidchild, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her impurity; and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying sixty-six days.
6 And 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, to the door of the tent of meeting, to the priest: 7 and he shall offer it before Yahweh, 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. 8 And if she cannot afford 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.
