19 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, aYe shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. 3 bYe shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and ckeep my sabbaths: I am the Lord your God. 4 Turn ye not unto didols, enor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the Lord your God.
5 And fif ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the Lord, ye shall offer it gat your own will. 6 It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if ought remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire. 7 And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is habominable; it shall not be accepted. 8 Therefore every one that eateth it ishall bear his iniquity, because he hath profaned the hallowed thing of the Lord: and kthat soul shall be cut off from among his people.
9 And lwhen ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest. 10 And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the Lord your God. 11 mYe shall not steal, nneither deal falsely, neither lie one to another. 12 And ye shall not oswear by my name falsely, pneither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord. 13 Thou shalt not qdefraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: rthe wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. 14 Thou shalt not scurse the deaf, tnor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt ufear thy God: I am the Lord. 15 wYe shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour. 16 xThou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou ystand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the Lord. 17 zThou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: athou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, ||and not suffer sin upon him. 18 bThou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but cthou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord.
19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: dthou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: eneither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee. 20 And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, ||†betrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; ||†she shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free. 21 And fhe shall bring his trespass offering unto the Lord, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, even a ram for a trespass offering. 22 And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering before the Lord for his sin which he hath done: and the sin which he hath done shall be forgiven him. 23 And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye shall count the fruit thereof as guncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it shall not be eaten of. 24 But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be †holy to praise the Lord withal. 25 And in the fifth year shall ye eat of the fruit thereof, that it may yield unto you the increase thereof: I am the Lord your God.
26 hYe shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither ishall ye use enchantment, nor kobserve times. 27 lYe shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard. 28 Ye shall not make many cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord. 29 nDo not †prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness. 30 oYe shall keep my sabbaths, and preverence my sanctuary: I am the Lord. 31 qRegard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God. 32 rThou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and shonour the face of the old man, and tfear thy God: I am the Lord. 33 And uif a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not ||vex him. 34 But xthe stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and ythou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. 35 Ye zshall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in ameteyard, in bweight, or in cmeasure. 36 dJust balances, just †weights, a just eephah, and a just fhin, shall ye have: I am the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt. 37 Therefore gshall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the Lord.
