16 Observe the amonth of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lord thy God: for bin the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night. 2 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the Lord thy God, of the flock and cthe herd, din the place which the Lord shall choose to place his name there. 3 Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in ehaste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life. 4 fAnd there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there any thing of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, gremain all night until the morning. 5 Thou mayest not ||sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which the Lord thy God giveth thee: 6 But at the place which the Lord thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover hat even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt. 7 And thou shalt iroast and eat it in the place which the Lord thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents. 8 kSix days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and lon the seventh day shall be a †solemn assembly to the Lord thy God: thou shalt do no work therein.
9 mSeven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks from such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle to nthe corn. 10 And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the Lord thy God with ||a tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which thou shalt give unto the Lord thy God, oaccording as the Lord thy God hath blessed thee: 11 And pthou shalt rejoice before the Lord thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which the Lord thy God hath chosen to place his name there. 12 qAnd thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt: and thou shalt observe and do these statutes.
13 rThou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy †corn and thy wine: 14 And sthou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates. 15 tSeven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the Lord thy God in the place which the Lord shall choose: because the Lord thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice. 16 uThree times in a year shall all thy males appear before the Lord thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and xthey shall not appear before the Lord empty: 17 Every man shall give †as he is able, yaccording to the blessing of the Lord thy God which he hath given thee.
18 zJudges and aofficers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment. 19 bThou shalt not wrest judgment; cthou shalt not respect persons, dneither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the ||words of the righteous. 20 †That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou mayest live, and inherit the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
