2 “You shall sacrifice the Passover to the Lord your God from the flock and the herd, in the place where the Lord chooses to establish His name.

3 “aYou shall not eat leavened bread with it; seven days you shall eat with it unleavened bread, the bread of affliction (for you came out of the land of Egypt in haste), so that you may remember ball the days of your life the day when you came out of the land of Egypt.

4 “For seven days no leaven shall be seen with you in all your territory, and anone of the flesh which you sacrifice on the evening of the first day shall remain overnight until morning.

5 “You are not allowed to sacrifice the Passover in any of your 1towns which the Lord your God is giving you;

6 but aat the place where the Lord your God chooses to establish His name, you shall sacrifice the Passover in the evening at sunset, at the time that you came out of Egypt.

7 “You shall acook and eat it in the place which the Lord your God chooses. In the morning you are to return to your tents.

8 “Six days you shall eat unleavened bread, and aon the seventh day there shall be ba solemn assembly to the Lord your God; you shall do no work on it.

9aYou shall count seven weeks for yourself; you shall begin to count seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain.

10 “Then you shall 1celebrate the Feast of Weeks to the Lord your God with a tribute of a freewill offering of your hand, which you shall give just as the Lord your God blesses you;

11 and you shall arejoice before the Lord your God, you and your son and your daughter and your male and female servants and bthe Levite who is in your 1town, and cthe stranger and the 2orphan and the widow who are in your midst, in the place where the Lord your God chooses to establish His name.

12 “aYou shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt, and you shall be careful to observe these statutes.

13aYou shall 1celebrate the Feast of Booths seven days after you have gathered in from your threshing floor and your wine vat;

14 and you shall arejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter and your male and female servants and the Levite and the stranger and the 1orphan and the widow who are in your 2towns.

15 “Seven days you shall celebrate a feast to the Lord your God in the place which the Lord chooses, because the Lord your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you will be altogether joyful.

16aThree times in a year all your males shall appear before the Lord your God in the place which He chooses, at the Feast of Unleavened Bread and at the Feast of Weeks and at the Feast of Booths, and bthey shall not appear before the Lord empty-handed.

17 “Every man 1shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you.

18 “You shall appoint for yourself judges and officers in all your 1towns which the Lord your God is giving you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.

19 “aYou shall not distort justice; byou shall not 1be partial, and cyou shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous.

20 “Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue, that ayou may live and possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

21aYou shall not plant for yourself an 1Asherah of any kind of tree beside the altar of the Lord your God, which you shall make for yourself.

22 “aYou shall not set up for yourself a sacred pillar which the Lord your God hates.
