And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them, You shall be holy; for I Yahweh your Elohim am holy. 3 Every man of you shall fear his mother, and his father; and you shall keep my sabbaths: I am Yahweh your Elohim. 4 Turn not to idols, nor make to yourselves molten elohim: I am Yahweh your Elohim.
5 And when you offer a sacrifice of peace-offerings to Yahweh, you shall offer it that you may be accepted. 6 It shall be eaten the same day you offer it, and on the next day: and if any remain until the third day, it shall be burnt with fire. 7 And if it is eaten at all on the third day, it is an abomination; it shall not be accepted: 8 but every one that eats it shall bear his iniquity, because he has profaned the holy thing of Yahweh: and that soul shall be cut off from his people.
9 And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field, neither shall you gather the gleaning of your harvest. 10 And 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 Yahweh your Elohim.
11 You shall not steal; neither shall you deal falsely, nor lie to one another. 12 And you shall not swear by my name falsely, and profane the name of your Elohim: I am Yahweh.
13 You shall not oppress your neighbor, nor rob him: the wages of a hired servant shall not remain with you all night until the morning. 14 You shall not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling block before the blind: but you shall fear your Elohim: I am Yahweh.
15 You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: you shall not respect the face of the poor, nor honor the face of the mighty; but in righteousness you shall judge your neighbor. 16 You shall not go up and down as a talebearer among your people: neither shall you stand against the blood of your neighbor: I am Yahweh.
17 You shall not hate your brother in your heart: you shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. 18 You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people; but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am Yahweh.
19 You shall keep my statutes. You shall not let your cattle mate with a different kind: you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed: neither shall there come upon you a garment of two kinds of stuff mingled together. 20 And 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. 21 And he shall bring his trespass-offering to Yahweh, to the door of the tent of meeting, even a ram for a trespass-offering. 22 And the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass-offering before Yahweh for his sin which he has sinned: and the sin which he has sinned shall be forgiven him.
23 And when you shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then you shall count the fruit of it as their uncircumcision: three years shall they be as uncircumcised to you; it shall not be eaten. 24 But in the fourth year all the fruit of it shall be holy, for giving praise to Yahweh. 25 And in the fifth year you shall eat of the fruit of it, that it may yield to you the increase of it: I am Yahweh your Elohim.
26 You shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall you use enchantments, nor practice sorcery. 27 You shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shall you mar the corners of your beard. 28 You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks on yourselves: I am Yahweh.
29 Do not profane your daughter, to make her a harlot; lest the land falls to whoredom, and the land becomes full of wickedness. 30 You shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am Yahweh.
31 Turn not to them that have familiar spirits, nor to the wizards; seek them not, to be defiled by them: I am Yahweh your Elohim.
32 You shall rise up before the gray head, and honor the face of the old man, and you shall fear your Elohim: I am Yahweh.
33 And if a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. 34 The stranger that sojourns with you shall be to 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 Yahweh your Elohim.
35 You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in measures of length, of weight, or of quantity. 36 Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall you have: I am Yahweh your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. 37 And you shall observe all my statutes, and all my ordinances, and do them: I am Yahweh.
1 And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saving, 2 Moreover, you shall say to the children of Israel, Whoever he is of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that gives of his seed to Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3 I also will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he has given of his seed to Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. 4 And if the people of the land do at all hide their eyes from that man, when he gives of his seed to Molech, and put him not to death; 5 then 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.
6 And the soul that turns to them that have familiar spirits, and to 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. 7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be holy; for I am Yahweh your Elohim. 8 And you shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am Yahweh who sanctifies you. 9 For 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.
10 And the man that commits adultery with another man’s wife, even he that commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. 11 And the man that lies with his father’s wife has uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. 12 And if a man lies with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them. 13 And if a man lies with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. 14 And if a man takes a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there is no wickedness among you. 15 And if a man lies with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and you shall kill the beast. 16 And if a woman approaches unto any beast, and lies down thereto, you shall kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
17 And if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter, and she sees 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 sister’s nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity. 18 And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he has 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. 19 And you shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister, nor of your father’s sister; for he has made naked his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity. 20 And if a man shall lie with his uncle’s wife, he has uncovered his uncle’s nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless. 21 And if a man shall take his brother’s wife, it is impurity: he has uncovered his brother’s nakedness; they shall be childless.
22 You shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my ordinances, and do them; that the land, where I bring you to dwell in, vomits you not out. 23 And 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. 24 But I have said to you, You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey: I am Yahweh your Elohim, who has separated you from the peoples. 25 You 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 any thing with which the ground teems, which I have separated from you as unclean. 26 And you shall be holy to me: for I Yahweh am holy, and have set you apart from the peoples, that you should be mine.
27 A 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.
And Yahweh said to Moses, Speak to the priests, the sons of Aaron, and say to them, None shall defile himself for the dead among his people; 2 except for his kin, that is near to him, for his mother, and for his father, and for his son, and for his daughter, and for his brother, 3 and for his sister a virgin, that is near to him, that has had no husband; for her may he defile himself. 4 He shall not defile himself, being a chief man among his people, to profane himself. 5 They shall not make baldness on their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh. 6 They shall be holy to their Elohim, and not profane the name of their Elohim; for the offerings of Yahweh made by fire, the bread of their Elohim; they do offer: therefore they shall be holy. 7 They 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 to his Elohim. 8 You shall sanctify him therefore; for he offers the bread of your Elohim: he shall be holy to you; for I Yahweh, who sanctify you, am holy. 9 And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the harlot, she profanes her father: she shall be burnt with fire.
10 And he that is the high priest among his brethren, on 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 loose, nor rend his clothes; 11 neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself for his father, or for his mother; 12 neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his Elohim; for the crown of the anointing oil of his Elohim is on him: I am Yahweh. 13 And he shall take a wife in her virginity. 14 A 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 to wife. 15 And he shall not profane his seed among his people: for I am Yahweh who sanctifies him.
16 And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying 17 Speak to Aaron, saying, Whoever he is of your seed throughout their generations that has a blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his Elohim. 18 For whatever man he is that has a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that has a flat nose, or anything superfluous, 19 or a man that is broken-footed, or broken-handed, 20 a hunchback or a dwarf, or that has a blemish in his eye, or is scurvy, or scabbed, or has his stones broken: 21 no man of the seed of Aaron the priest, that has a blemish, shall come near to offer the offerings of Yahweh made by fire: he has a blemish; he shall not come near to offer the bread of his Elohim. 22 He shall eat the bread of his Elohim, both of the most holy, and of the holy: 23 only he shall not go in to the veil, nor come near to the altar, because he has a blemish; that he profanes not my sanctuaries: for I am Yahweh who sanctifies them. 24 So Moses spoke to Aaron, and to his sons, and to all the children of Israel.
