1:1 Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into
Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.
1:2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,
1:3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,
1:4 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
1:5 And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy
souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.
1:6 And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.
1:7 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly,
and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled
1:8 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not
1:9 And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of
Israel are more and mightier than we:
1:10 Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it
come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also
unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of
1:11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with
their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom
1:12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and
grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.
1:13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigor:
1:14 And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and
in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service,
wherein they made them serve, was with rigor.
1:15 And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which
the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:
1:16 And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew
women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall
kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.
1:17 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt
commanded them, but saved the men children alive.
1:18 And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them,
Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children
1:19 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women
are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are
delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.
1:20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people
multiplied, and waxed very mighty.
1:21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he
made them houses.
1:22 And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born
ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.
2:1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a
daughter of Levi.
2:2 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him
that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.
2:3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of
bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the
child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river’s brink.
2:4 And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.
2:5 And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the
river; and her maidens walked along by the river’s side; and when
she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.
2:6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the
babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one
of the Hebrews’ children.
2:7 Then said his sister to Pharaoh’s daughter, Shall I go and call to
thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child
2:8 And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and
called the child’s mother.
2:9 And Pharaoh’s daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and
nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the women
took the child, and nursed it.
2:10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter,
and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she
said, Because I drew him out of the water.
2:11 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that
he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he
spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren.
2:12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there
was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.
2:13 And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the
Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong,
Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?
2:14 And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us?
intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And
Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.
2:15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But
Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of
Midian: and he sat down by a well.
2:16 Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and
drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father’s flock.
2:17 And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood
up and helped them, and watered their flock.
2:18 And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that
ye are come so soon to day?
2:19 And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the
shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the
2:20 And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye
have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread.
2:21 And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses
Zipporah his daughter.
2:22 And she bare him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for he
said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.
2:23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died:
and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they
cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.
2:24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant
with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
2:25 And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect
3:1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of
Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came
to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
3:2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire
out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush
burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
3:3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight,
why the bush is not burnt.
3:4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called
unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses.
And he said, Here am I.
3:5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy
feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
3:6 Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of
Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid
his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
3:7 And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people
which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their
taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;
3:8 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the
Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land
and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the
place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the
Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
3:9 Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come
unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the
Egyptians oppress them.
3:10 Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou
mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
3:11 And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto
Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of
3:12 And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token
unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the
people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.
3:13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children
of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath
sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name?
what shall I say unto them?
3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus
shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto
3:15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the
children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of
Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me
unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto
3:16 Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The
LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of
Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and
seen that which is done to you in Egypt:
3:17 And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt
unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites,
and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, unto a land
flowing with milk and honey.
3:18 And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come, thou and
the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto
him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now
let us go, we beseech thee, three days’ journey into the wilderness,
that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.
3:19 And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not
by a mighty hand.
3:20 And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my
wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will
let you go.
3:21 And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians: and
it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty.
3:22 But every woman shall borrow of her neighbor, and of her that
sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and
raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your
daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.
4:1 And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe
me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath
not appeared unto thee.
4:2 And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he
said, A rod.
4:3 And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground,
and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.
4:4 And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it
by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became
a rod in his hand:
4:5 That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the
God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath
appeared unto thee.
4:6 And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand
into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he
took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.
4:7 And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his
hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and,
behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.
4:8 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither
hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the
voice of the latter sign.
4:9 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two
signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the
water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water
which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry
4:10 And Moses said unto the LORD, O my LORD, I am not eloquent,
neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant:
but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.
4:11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or
who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not
I the LORD?
4:12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee
what thou shalt say.
4:13 And he said, O my LORD, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him
whom thou wilt send.
4:14 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he
said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak
well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he
seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.
4:15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I
will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you
what ye shall do.
4:16 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be,
even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to
him instead of God.
4:17 And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do
4:18 And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and said
unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren
which are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro
said to Moses, Go in peace.
4:19 And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt:
for all the men are dead which sought thy life.
4:20 And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass,
and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of
God in his hand.
4:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into
Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I
have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not
let the people go.
4:22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is
my son, even my firstborn:
4:23 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if
thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy
4:24 And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met
him, and sought to kill him.
4:25 Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her
son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art
thou to me.
4:26 So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because
of the circumcision.
4:27 And the LORD said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet
Moses. And he went, and met him in the mount of God, and kissed
4:28 And Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD who had sent
him, and all the signs which he had commanded him.
4:29 And Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of
the children of Israel:
4:30 And Aaron spake all the words which the LORD had spoken unto
Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.
4:31 And the people believed: and when they heard that the LORD had
visited the children of Israel, and that he had looked upon their
affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.
5:1 And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus
saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may
hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.
5:2 And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice
to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.
5:3 And they said, The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us
go, we pray thee, three days’ journey into the desert, and sacrifice
unto the LORD our God; lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or
with the sword.
5:4 And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses
and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your
5:5 And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many,
and ye make them rest from their burdens.
5:6 And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the
people, and their officers, saying,
5:7 Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as
heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.
5:8 And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall
lay upon them; ye shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be
idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.
5:9 Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labor
therein; and let them not regard vain words.
5:10 And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and
they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not
give you straw.
5:11 Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of your
work shall be diminished.
5:12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of
Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.
5:13 And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your
daily tasks, as when there was straw.
5:14 And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh’s
taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded,
Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both
yesterday and to day, as heretofore?
5:15 Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto
Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?
5:16 There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us,
Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault is in
thine own people.
5:17 But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and
do sacrifice to the LORD.
5:18 Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you,
yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks.
5:19 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in
evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish ought from your
bricks of your daily task.
5:20 And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they
came forth from Pharaoh:
5:21 And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you, and judge;
because ye have made our savor to be abhorred in the eyes of
Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their
hand to slay us.
5:22 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, LORD, wherefore
hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast
5:23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done
evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.
6:1 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will
do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with
a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
6:2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:
6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the
name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not
known to them.
6:4 And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them
the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were
6:5 And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom
the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my
6:6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I
will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I
will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a
stretched out arm, and with great judgments:
6:7 And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God:
and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth
you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
6:8 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did
swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give
it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.
6:9 And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they
hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel
6:10 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
6:11 Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of
Israel go out of his land.
6:12 And Moses spake before the LORD, saying, Behold, the children
of Israel have not hearkened unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear
me, who am of uncircumcised lips?
6:13 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, and gave them
a charge unto the children of Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of
Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
6:14 These be the heads of their fathers’ houses: The sons of Reuben
the firstborn of Israel; Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi: these
be the families of Reuben.
6:15 And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin,
and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman: these are the
families of Simeon.
6:16 And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their
generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari: and the years of the
life of Levi were an hundred thirty and seven years.
6:17 The sons of Gershon; Libni, and Shimi, according to their families.
6:18 And the sons of Kohath; Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and
Uzziel: and the years of the life of Kohath were an hundred thirty
and three years.
6:19 And the sons of Merari; Mahali and Mushi: these are the families
of Levi according to their generations.
6:20 And Amram took him Jochebed his father’s sister to wife; and she
bare him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram
were an hundred and thirty and seven years.
6:21 And the sons of Izhar; Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri.
6:22 And the sons of Uzziel; Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Zithri.
6:23 And Aaron took him Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab, sister of
Naashon, to wife; and she bare him Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and
6:24 And the sons of Korah; Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph: these
are the families of the Korhites.
6:25 And Eleazar Aaron’s son took him one of the daughters of Putiel
to wife; and she bare him Phinehas: these are the heads of the
fathers of the Levites according to their families.
6:26 These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom the LORD said, Bring
out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their
6:27 These are they which spake to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out
the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that Moses and Aaron.
6:28 And it came to pass on the day when the LORD spake unto
Moses in the land of Egypt,
6:29 That the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, I am the LORD: speak
thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say unto thee.
6:30 And Moses said before the LORD, Behold, I am of uncircumcised
lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?
7:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a God to
Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.
7:2 Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy brother
shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of
7:3 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply my signs and my
wonders in the land of Egypt.
7:4 But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my hand
upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the
children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.
7:5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch
forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel
from among them.
7:6 And Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded them, so did
7:7 And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and
three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.
7:8 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
7:9 When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for
you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it
before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.
7:10 And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as
the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before
Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.
7:11 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the
magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their
7:12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents:
but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.
7:13 And he hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not unto them;
as the LORD had said.
7:14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh’s heart is hardened, he
refuseth to let the people go.
7:15 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; lo, he goeth out unto the
water; and thou shalt stand by the river’s brink against he come;
and the rod which was turned to a serpent shalt thou take in thine
7:16 And thou shalt say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews
hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may
serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not
7:17 Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the
LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon
the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.
7:18 And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink;
and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of the water of the river.
7:19 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod,
and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their
streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their
pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be
blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood,
and in vessels of stone.
7:20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he
lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the
sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters
that were in the river were turned to blood.
7:21 And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the
Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was
blood throughout all the land of Egypt.
7:22 And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and
Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as
the LORD had said.
7:23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he set his
heart to this also.
7:24 And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to
drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river.
7:25 And seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had smitten
8:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto
him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve
8:2 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy
borders with frogs:
8:3 And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up
and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy
bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and
into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs:
8:4 And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people,
and upon all thy servants.
8:5 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth
thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over
the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.
8:6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and
the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.
8:7 And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up
frogs upon the land of Egypt.
8:8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat the
LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my
people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto
8:9 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat
for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the
frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river
8:10 And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word:
that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our
8:11 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and
from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the
8:12 And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried
unto the LORD because of the frogs which he had brought against
8:13 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs
died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.
8:14 And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.
8:15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his
heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.
8:16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy
rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice
throughout all the land of Egypt.
8:17 And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod,
and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in
beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of
8:18 And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth
lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon
8:19 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God:
and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto
them; as the LORD had said.
8:20 And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and
stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say
unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may
8:21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms
of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people,
and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full
of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.
8:22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my
people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou
mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.
8:23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to
morrow shall this sign be.
8:24 And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies
into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses, and into
all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the
swarm of flies.
8:25 And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye,
sacrifice to your God in the land.
8:26 And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the
abomination of the Egyptians to the LORD our God: lo, shall we
sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and
will they not stone us?
8:27 We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to
the LORD our God, as he shall command us.
8:28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the
LORD your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far
away: intreat for me.
8:29 And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will intreat the
LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his
servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal
deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the
8:30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.
8:31 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and he
removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and
from his people; there remained not one.
8:32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he
let the people go.
9:1 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell
him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people
go, that they may serve me.
9:2 For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,
9:3 Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon thy cattle which is in the
field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the
oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.
9:4 And the LORD shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the
cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the
children’s of Israel.
9:5 And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the
LORD shall do this thing in the land.
9:6 And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of
Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.
9:7 And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of
the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he
did not let the people go.
9:8 And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you
handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward
the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.
9:9 And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be
a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast,
throughout all the land of Egypt.
9:10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and
Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking
forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.
9:11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the
boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the
9:12 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened
not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.
9:13 And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and
stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD
God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
9:14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and
upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know
that there is none like me in all the earth.
9:15 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy
people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.
9:16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew
in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout
all the earth.
9:17 As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not
let them go?
9:18 Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very
grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation
thereof even until now.
9:19 Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in
the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the
field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon
them, and they shall die.
9:20 He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of
Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:
9:21 And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants
and his cattle in the field.
9:22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward
heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man,
and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the
land of Egypt.
9:23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD
sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and
the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
9:24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous,
such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it
became a nation.
9:25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in
the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the
field, and brake every tree of the field.
9:26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was
there no hail.
9:27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto
them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my
people are wicked.
9:28 Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty
thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no
9:29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I
will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the thunder shall
cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know
how that the earth is the LORD’s.
9:30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear
the LORD God.
9:31 And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the
ear, and the flax was bolled.
9:32 But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were not
9:33 And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad
his hands unto the LORD: and the thunders and hail ceased, and
the rain was not poured upon the earth.
9:34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders
were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his
9:35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the
children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by Moses.
10:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have
hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew
these my signs before him:
10:2 And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s
son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I
have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the
10:3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him,
Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou
refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they
may serve me.
10:4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I
bring the locusts into thy coast:
10:5 And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able
to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is
escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat
every tree which groweth for you out of the field:
10:6 And they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy servants,
and the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither thy fathers, nor
thy fathers’ fathers have seen, since the day that they were upon
the earth unto this day. And he turned himself, and went out from
10:7 And Pharaoh’s servants said unto him, How long shall this man be
a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the LORD
their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?
10:8 And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he
said unto them, Go, serve the LORD your God: but who are they
that shall go?
10:9 And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with
our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our
herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the LORD.
10:10 And he said unto them, Let the LORD be so with you, as I will let
you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.
10:11 Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the LORD; for that ye
did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence.
10:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the
land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the
land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail
10:13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the
LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that
night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.
10:14 And the locust went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all
the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there
were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.
10:15 For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was
darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit
of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any
green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the
land of Egypt.
10:16 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I
have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you.
10:17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and
intreat the LORD your God, that he may take away from me this
10:18 And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.
10:19 And the LORD turned a mighty strong west wind, which took
away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained
not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.
10:20 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let
the children of Israel go.
10:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward
heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even
darkness which may be felt.
10:22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was
a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
10:23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for
three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
10:24 And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the LORD;
only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones
also go with you.
10:25 And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt
offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the LORD our God.
10:26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left
behind; for thereof must we take to serve the LORD our God; and
we know not with what we must serve the LORD, until we come
10:27 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let
10:28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to
thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face
thou shalt die.
10:29 And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again
11:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague more
upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go
hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out
11:2 Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of
his neighbor, and every woman of her neighbor, jewels of silver and
jewels of gold.
11:3 And the LORD gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians.
Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in
the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.
11:4 And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go
out into the midst of Egypt:
11:5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first
born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the
firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the
firstborn of beasts.
11:6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt,
such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.
11:7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his
tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the
LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.
11:8 And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow
down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people
that follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he went out from
Pharaoh in a great anger.
11:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto
you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.
11:10 And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and
the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the
children of Israel go out of his land.
12:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt
12:2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be
the first month of the year to you.
12:3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth
day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb,
according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
12:4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his
neighbor next unto his house take it according to the number of the
souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for
12:5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye
shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
12:6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same
month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall
kill it in the evening.
12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side
posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall
12:8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and
unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
12:9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire;
his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.
12:10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that
which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.
12:11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on
your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste:
it is the LORD’s passover.
12:12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite
all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and
against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the
12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where
ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the
plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land
12:14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it
a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it
a feast by an ordinance for ever.
12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye
shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth
leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul
shall be cut off from Israel.
12:16 And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the
seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner
of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat,
that only may be done of you.
12:17 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this
selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt:
therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an
ordinance for ever.
12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye
shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the
month at even.
12:19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for
whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut
off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or
born in the land.
12:20 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat
12:21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them,
Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill
12:22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is
in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the
blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door
of his house until the morning.
12:23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when
he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the
LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to
come in unto your houses to smite you.
12:24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy
sons for ever.
12:25 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the
LORD will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall
keep this service.
12:26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you,
What mean ye by this service?
12:27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD’s passover, who
passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he
smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people
bowed the head and worshipped.
12:28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the LORD had
commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
12:29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the
firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that
sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the
dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
12:30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all
the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was
not a house where there was not one dead.
12:31 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up,
and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children
of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.
12:32 Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone;
and bless me also.
12:33 And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might
send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead
12:34 And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their
kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their
12:35 And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and
they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of
gold, and raiment:
12:36 And the LORD gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians,
so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they
spoiled the Egyptians.
12:37 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth,
about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children.
12:38 And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and
herds, even very much cattle.
12:39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought
forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were
thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared
for themselves any victual.
12:40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt,
was four hundred and thirty years.
12:41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty
years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of
the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.
12:42 It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing them
out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the LORD to be
observed of all the children of Israel in their generations.
12:43 And the LORD said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance
of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:
12:44 But every man’s servant that is bought for money, when thou hast
circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.
12:45 A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.
12:46 In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of
the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone
12:47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.
12:48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the
passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then
let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in
the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.
12:49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger
that sojourneth among you.
12:50 Thus did all the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded
Moses and Aaron, so did they.
12:51 And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the LORD did bring the
children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.
13:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
13:2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb
among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.
13:3 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye
came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength
of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no
leavened bread be eaten.
13:4 This day came ye out in the month Abib.
13:5 And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land of the
Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites,
and the Jebusites, which he swear unto thy fathers to give thee, a
land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep this service
in this month.
13:6 Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day
shall be a feast to the LORD.
13:7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no
leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen
with thee in all thy quarters.
13:8 And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done
because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth
out of Egypt.
13:9 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a
memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD’s law may be in thy
mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of
13:10 Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to
13:11 And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land of the
Canaanites, as he swear unto thee and to thy fathers, and shall give
13:12 That thou shalt set apart unto the LORD all that openeth the
matrix, and every firstling that cometh of a beast which thou hast;
the males shall be the LORD’s.
13:13 And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb; and if
thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break his neck: and all the
firstborn of man among thy children shalt thou redeem.
13:14 And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying,
What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand the
LORD brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:
13:15 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the
LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the
firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to
the LORD all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the
firstborn of my children I redeem.
13:16 And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets
between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the LORD brought us
forth out of Egypt.
13:17 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God
led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines,
although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people
repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt:
13:18 But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness
of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of
the land of Egypt.
13:19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had straitly
sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you; and
ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you.
13:20 And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in
Etham, in the edge of the wilderness.
13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to
lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them
light; to go by day and night:
13:22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of
fire by night, from before the people.
14:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
14:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before
Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon:
before it shall ye encamp by the sea.
14:3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in
the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.
14:4 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, that he shall follow after them;
and I will be honored upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the
Egyptians may know that I am the LORD. And they did so.
14:5 And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and the
heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people,
and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go
from serving us?
14:6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:
14:7 And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of
Egypt, and captains over every one of them.
14:8 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and
he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel
went out with an high hand.
14:9 But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots
of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them
encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.
14:10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their
eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they
were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the
14:11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt,
hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast
thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?
14:12 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us
alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for
us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the
14:13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see
the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for
the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again
no more for ever.
14:14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
14:15 And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me?
speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:
14:16 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea,
and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground
through the midst of the sea.
14:17 And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they
shall follow them: and I will get me honor upon Pharaoh, and upon
all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.
14:18 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have
gotten me honor upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his
14:19 And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel,
removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went
from before their face, and stood behind them:
14:20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of
Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by
night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.
14:21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD
caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and
made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
14:22 And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the
dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right
hand, and on their left.
14:23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of
the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.
14:24 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked
unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the
cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,
14:25 And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so
that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the
LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians.
14:26 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the
sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon
their chariots, and upon their horsemen.
14:27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea
returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the
Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians
in the midst of the sea.
14:28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the
horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after
them; there remained not so much as one of them.
14:29 But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the
sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and
on their left.
14:30 Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the
Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.
14:31 And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the
Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the
LORD, and his servant Moses.
15:1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the
LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath
triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into
15:2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my
salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my
father’s God, and I will exalt him.
15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
15:4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his
chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
15:5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a
15:6 Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right
hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.
15:7 And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown
them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which
consumed them as stubble.
15:8 And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered
together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were
congealed in the heart of the sea.
15:9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the
spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword,
my hand shall destroy them.
15:10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank
as lead in the mighty waters.
15:11 Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee,
glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
15:12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.
15:13 Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast
redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy
15:14 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the
inhabitants of Palestina.
15:15 Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of
Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of
Canaan shall melt away.
15:16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm
they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD,
till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.
15:17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine
inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee
to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which thy hands have
15:18 The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.
15:19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his
horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of
the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in
the midst of the sea.
15:20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in
her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and
15:21 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath
triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into
15:22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into
the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness,
and found no water.
15:23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters
of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called
15:24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we
15:25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree,
which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made
sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there
he proved them,
15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD
thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give
ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none
of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the
Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
15:27 And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and
threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the
16:1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of
the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is
between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month
after their departing out of the land of Egypt.
16:2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured
against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:
16:3 And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had
died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat
by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye
have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole
assembly with hunger.
16:4 Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from
heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate
every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my
law, or no.
16:5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare
that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they
16:6 And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even,
then ye shall know that the LORD hath brought you out from the
land of Egypt:
16:7 And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the LORD; for
that he heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and what are
we, that ye murmur against us?
16:8 And Moses said, This shall be, when the LORD shall give you in
the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for
that the LORD heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against
him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but
against the LORD.
16:9 And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the
children of Israel, Come near before the LORD: for he hath heard
16:10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation
of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness,
and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud.
16:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
16:12 I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto
them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall
be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I am the LORD your
16:13 And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered
the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host.
16:14 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of
the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar
frost on the ground.
16:15 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It
is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto
them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat.
16:16 This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather of it
every man according to his eating, an omer for every man,
according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for
them which are in his tents.
16:17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some
16:18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much
had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they
gathered every man according to his eating.
16:19 And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.
16:20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of
them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and
Moses was wroth with them.
16:21 And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his
eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.
16:22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as
much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the
congregation came and told Moses.
16:23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To
morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that
which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that
which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
16:24 And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not
stink, neither was there any worm therein.
16:25 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the
LORD: to day ye shall not find it in the field.
16:26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the
sabbath, in it there shall be none.
16:27 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the
seventh day for to gather, and they found none.
16:28 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my
commandments and my laws?
16:29 See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he
giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every
man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.
16:30 So the people rested on the seventh day.
16:31 And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was
like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made
16:32 And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commandeth,
Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may
see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I
brought you forth from the land of Egypt.
16:33 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of
manna therein, and lay it up before the LORD, to be kept for your
16:34 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the
Testimony, to be kept.
16:35 And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they
came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto
the borders of the land of Canaan.
16:36 Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.
17:1 And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from
the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the
commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim: and there
was no water for the people to drink.
17:2 Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us
water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide
ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the LORD?
17:3 And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured
against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought
us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with
17:4 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, What shall I do unto
this people? they be almost ready to stone me.
17:5 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and
take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou
smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.
17:6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and
thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that
the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders
17:7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because
of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted
the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?
17:8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.
17:9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight
with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the
rod of God in mine hand.
17:10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek:
and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel
prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
17:12 But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it
under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his
hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and
his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
17:13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of
17:14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a
book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out
the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.
17:15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:
17:16 For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will
have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
18:1 When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses’ father in law, heard of
all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, and that
the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt;
18:2 Then Jethro, Moses’ father in law, took Zipporah, Moses’ wife,
after he had sent her back,
18:3 And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom; for
he said, I have been an alien in a strange land:
18:4 And the name of the other was Eliezer; for the God of my father,
said he, was mine help, and delivered me from the sword of
18:5 And Jethro, Moses’ father in law, came with his sons and his wife
unto Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at the mount
18:6 And he said unto Moses, I thy father in law Jethro am come unto
thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her.
18:7 And Moses went out to meet his father in law, and did obeisance,
and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare; and
they came into the tent.
18:8 And Moses told his father in law all that the LORD had done unto
Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel’s sake, and all the travail
that had come upon them by the way, and how the LORD
18:9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the LORD had done
to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians.
18:10 And Jethro said, Blessed be the LORD, who hath delivered you
out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh,
who hath delivered the people from under the hand of the
18:11 Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods: for in the thing
wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.
18:12 And Jethro, Moses’ father in law, took a burnt offering and
sacrifices for God: and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel, to
eat bread with Moses’ father in law before God.
18:13 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge the
people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto the
18:14 And when Moses’ father in law saw all that he did to the people,
he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? why
sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people stand by thee from
morning unto even?
18:15 And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people come
unto me to enquire of God:
18:16 When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between
one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of God,
and his laws.
18:17 And Moses’ father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest
is not good.
18:18 Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is
with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to
perform it thyself alone.
18:19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall
be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou
mayest bring the causes unto God:
18:20 And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew
them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they
18:21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such
as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over
them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of
fifties, and rulers of tens:
18:22 And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that
every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small
matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they
shall bear the burden with thee.
18:23 If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then thou
shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their
place in peace.
18:24 So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and did all
that he had said.
18:25 And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads
over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of
fifties, and rulers of tens.
18:26 And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they
brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged
18:27 And Moses let his father in law depart; and he went his way into
his own land.
19:1 In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out
of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness
19:2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the
desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel
camped before the mount.
19:3 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out
of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob,
and tell the children of Israel;
19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on
eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.
19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my
covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all
people: for all the earth is mine:
19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation.
These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of
19:7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid
before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded
19:8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD
hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the
people unto the LORD.
19:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick
cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and
believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the people
unto the LORD.
19:10 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify
them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes,
19:11 And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD
will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.
19:12 And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying,
Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or
touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be
surely put to death:
19:13 There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or
shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the
trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.
19:14 And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and
sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes.
19:15 And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come
not at your wives.
19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there
were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount,
and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people
that was in the camp trembled.
19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with
God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD
descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the
smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed
louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a
19:20 And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the
mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount;
and Moses went up.
19:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest
they break through unto the LORD to gaze, and many of them
19:22 And let the priests also, which come near to the LORD, sanctify
themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them.
19:23 And Moses said unto the LORD, The people cannot come up to
mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the
mount, and sanctify it.
19:24 And the LORD said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou
shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests
and the people break through to come up unto the LORD, lest he
break forth upon them.
19:25 So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them.
20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,
20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land
of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of
any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or
that is in the water under the earth.
20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I
the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of
them that hate me;
20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and
keep my commandments.
20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for
the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
20:9 Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work:
20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it
thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter,
thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy
stranger that is within thy gates:
20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all
that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD
blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
20:12 Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon
the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
20:13 Thou shalt not kill.
20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
20:15 Thou shalt not steal.
20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet
thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor
his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.
20:18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the
noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the
people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.
20:19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear:
but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
20:20 And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to
prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin
20:21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick
darkness where God was.
20:22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the
children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from
20:23 Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make
unto you gods of gold.
20:24 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice
thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep,
and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come
unto thee, and I will bless thee.
20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it
of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast
20:26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy
nakedness be not discovered thereon.
21:1 Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them.
21:2 If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the
seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
21:3 If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were
married, then his wife shall go out with him.
21:4 If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or
daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master’s, and he
shall go out by himself.
21:5 And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife,
and my children; I will not go out free:
21:6 Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring
him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore
his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.
21:7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go
out as the menservants do.
21:8 If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself,
then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation
he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.
21:9 And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her
after the manner of daughters.
21:10 If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of
marriage, shall he not diminish.
21:11 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free
21:12 He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.
21:13 And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hand;
then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee.
21:14 But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbor, to slay him
with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.
21:15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to
21:16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his
hand, he shall surely be put to death.
21:17 And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to
21:18 And if men strive together, and one smite another with a stone, or
with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his bed:
21:19 If he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that
smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and
shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.
21:20 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die
under his hand; he shall be surely punished.
21:21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be
punished: for he is his money.
21:22 If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart
from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished,
according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall
pay as the judges determine.
21:23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,
21:24 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
21:25 Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
21:26 And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid,
that it perish; he shall let him go free for his eye’s sake.
21:27 And if he smite out his manservant’s tooth, or his maidservant’s
tooth; he shall let him go free for his tooth’s sake.
21:28 If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be
surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the
ox shall be quit.
21:29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it
hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but
that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and
his owner also shall be put to death.
21:30 If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for the
ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.
21:31 Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to
this judgment shall it be done unto him.
21:32 If the ox shall push a manservant or a maidservant; he shall give
unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be
21:33 And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit, and not
cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein;
21:34 The owner of the pit shall make it good, and give money unto the
owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his.
21:35 And if one man’s ox hurt another’s, that he die; then they shall sell
the live ox, and divide the money of it; and the dead ox also they
21:36 Or if it be known that the ox hath used to push in time past, and
his owner hath not kept him in; he shall surely pay ox for ox; and
the dead shall be his own.
22:1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall
restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.
22:2 If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there
shall no blood be shed for him.
22:3 If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for
he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be
sold for his theft.
22:4 If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or
ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.
22:5 If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in
his beast, and shall feed in another man’s field; of the best of his
own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make
22:6 If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the stacks of corn, or
the standing corn, or the field, be consumed therewith; he that
kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.
22:7 If a man shall deliver unto his neighbor money or stuff to keep, and
it be stolen out of the man’s house; if the thief be found, let him
22:8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be
brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto
his neighbor’s goods.
22:9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep,
for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing which another
challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before
the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay
double unto his neighbor.
22:10 If a man deliver unto his neighbor an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or
any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man
22:11 Then shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he
hath not put his hand unto his neighbor’s goods; and the owner of
it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.
22:12 And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the
22:13 If it be torn in pieces, then let him bring it for witness, and he shall
not make good that which was torn.
22:14 And if a man borrow ought of his neighbor, and it be hurt, or die,
the owner thereof being not with it, he shall surely make it good.
22:15 But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good: if it
be an hired thing, it came for his hire.
22:16 And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her,
he shall surely endow her to be his wife.
22:17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay
money according to the dowry of virgins.
22:18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.
22:19 Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.
22:20 He that sacrificeth unto any God, save unto the LORD only, he
shall be utterly destroyed.
22:21 Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were
strangers in the land of Egypt.
22:22 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.
22:23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will
surely hear their cry;
22:24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword;
and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.
22:25 If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou
shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him
22:26 If thou at all take thy neighbor’s raiment to pledge, thou shalt
deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:
22:27 For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein
shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me,
that I will hear; for I am gracious.
22:28 Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people.
22:29 Thou shalt not delay to offer the first of thy ripe fruits, and of thy
liquors: the firstborn of thy sons shalt thou give unto me.
22:30 Likewise shalt thou do with thine oxen, and with thy sheep: seven
days it shall be with his dam; on the eighth day thou shalt give it
22:31 And ye shall be holy men unto me: neither shall ye eat any flesh
that is torn of beasts in the field; ye shall cast it to the dogs.
23:1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the
wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
23:2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou
speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:
23:3 Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.
23:4 If thou meet thine enemy’s ox or his ass going astray, thou shalt
surely bring it back to him again.
23:5 If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his burden,
and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt surely help with him.
23:6 Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.
23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous
slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.
23:8 And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and
perverteth the words of the righteous.
23:9 Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a
stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
23:10 And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruits
23:11 But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the poor
of thy people may eat: and what they leave the beasts of the field
shall eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard, and
with thy oliveyard.
23:12 Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt
rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy
handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.
23:13 And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and
make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard
out of thy mouth.
23:14 Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.
23:15 Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat
unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time
appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from
Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)
23:16 And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labors, which thou
hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the
end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labors out of the
23:17 Three items in the year all thy males shall appear before the LORD
23:18 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread;
neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain until the morning.
23:19 The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the
house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his
23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and
to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will
not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.
23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak;
then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto
23:23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the
Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites,
the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.
23:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do
after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite
break down their images.
23:25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy
bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst
23:26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the
number of thy days I will fulfil.
23:27 I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to
whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their
backs unto thee.
23:28 And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the
Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.
23:29 I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land
become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee.
23:30 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou
be increased, and inherit the land.
23:31 And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of
the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver
the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive
them out before thee.
23:32 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.
23:33 They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against
me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.
24:1 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and
Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and
worship ye afar off.
24:2 And Moses alone shall come near the LORD: but they shall not
come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.
24:3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD,
and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice,
and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do.
24:4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in
the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars,
according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
24:5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered
burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the
24:6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of
the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
24:7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of
the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do,
and be obedient.
24:8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and
said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath
made with you concerning all these words.
24:9 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy
of the elders of Israel:
24:10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it
were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of
heaven in his clearness.
24:11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand:
also they saw God, and did eat and drink.
24:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount,
and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and
commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.
24:13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up
into the mount of God.
24:14 And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come
again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any
man have any matters to do, let him come unto them.
24:15 And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the
24:16 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud
covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out
of the midst of the cloud.
24:17 And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on
the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.
24:18 And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into
the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty
25:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of
every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my
25:3 And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and
silver, and brass,
25:4 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair,
25:5 And rams’ skins dyed red, and badgers’ skins, and shittim wood,
25:6 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense,
25:7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the

25:9 According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the
tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so
shall ye make it.
25:10 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half
shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth
thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
25:11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt
thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round

four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and

other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on
the two ends thereof.
25:20 And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering
the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to
another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.
25:21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the
ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.
25:22 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee
from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which
are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give
thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.
25:23 Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be
the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a
half the height thereof.

with gold, that the table may be born with them.

covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal: of pure gold
shalt thou make them.

shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his
bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same.

signet, shalt thou engrave the two stones with the names of the
children of Israel: thou shalt make them to be set in ouches of gold.
28:12 And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoulders of the
ephod for stones of memorial unto the children of Israel: and Aaron
shall bear their names before the LORD upon his two shoulders for
28:13 And thou shalt make ouches of gold;
28:14 And two chains of pure gold at the ends; of wreathen work shalt
thou make them, and fasten the wreathen chains to the ouches.
28:15 And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning
work; after the work of the ephod thou shalt make it; of gold, of
blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt
thou make it.
28:16 Foursquare it shall be being doubled; a span shall be the length
thereof, and a span shall be the breadth thereof.
28:17 And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of
stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle:
this shall be the first row.
28:18 And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a
28:19 And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.
28:20 And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall
be set in gold in their inclosings.
28:21 And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel,
twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet;
every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve
28:22 And thou shalt make upon the breastplate chains at the ends of
wreathen work of pure gold.
28:23 And thou shalt make upon the breastplate two rings of gold, and
shalt put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.
28:24 And thou shalt put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two
rings which are on the ends of the breastplate.
28:25 And the other two ends of the two wreathen chains thou shalt
fasten in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of
the ephod before it.
28:26 And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and thou shalt put them
upon the two ends of the breastplate in the border thereof, which
is in the side of the ephod inward.
28:27 And two other rings of gold thou shalt make, and shalt put them on
the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart
thereof, over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious
girdle of the ephod.
28:28 And they shall bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto the
rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may be above the
curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed
from the ephod.
28:29 And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the
breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the
holy place, for a memorial before the LORD continually.
28:30 And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the
Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron’s heart, when he goeth in
before the LORD: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the
children of Israel upon his heart before the LORD continually.
28:31 And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue.
28:32 And there shall be an hole in the top of it, in the midst thereof: it
shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it
were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not rent.
28:33 And beneath upon the hem of it thou shalt make pomegranates of
blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof;
and bells of gold between them round about:
28:34 A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate,
upon the hem of the robe round about.
28:35 And it shall be upon Aaron to minister: and his sound shall be
heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before the LORD, and
when he cometh out, that he die not.
28:36 And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like
the engravings of a signet,
HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
28:37 And thou shalt put it on a blue lace, that it may be upon the mitre;
upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be.
28:38 And it shall be upon Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the
iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall hallow
in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his forehead, that
they may be accepted before the LORD.
28:39 And thou shalt embroider the coat of fine linen, and thou shalt
make the mitre of fine linen, and thou shalt make the girdle of
28:40 And for Aaron’s sons thou shalt make coats, and thou shalt make
for them girdles, and bonnets shalt thou make for them, for glory
and for beauty.
28:41 And thou shalt put them upon Aaron thy brother, and his sons
with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify
them, that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
28:42 And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness;
from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach:
28:43 And they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his sons, when they
come in unto the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they come
near unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not
iniquity, and die: it shall be a statute for ever unto him and his seed
29:1 And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow them,
to minister unto me in the priest’s office: Take one young bullock,
and two rams without blemish,
29:2 And unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered with oil,
and wafers unleavened anointed with oil: of wheaten flour shalt
thou make them.
29:3 And thou shalt put them into one basket, and bring them in the
basket, with the bullock and the two rams.
29:4 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them with water.
29:5 And thou shalt take the garments, and put upon Aaron the coat,
and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate, and
gird him with the curious girdle of the ephod:
29:6 And thou shalt put the mitre upon his head, and put the holy
crown upon the mitre.
29:7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head,
and anoint him.
29:8 And thou shalt bring his sons, and put coats upon them.
29:9 And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and put
the bonnets on them: and the priest’s office shall be theirs for a
perpetual statute: and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons.
29:10 And thou shalt cause a bullock to be brought before the tabernacle
of the congregation: and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands
upon the head of the bullock.
29:11 And thou shalt kill the bullock before the LORD, by the door of
the tabernacle of the congregation.
29:12 And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put it upon
the horns of the altar with thy finger, and pour all the blood beside
the bottom of the altar.
29:13 And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the inwards, and the
caul that is above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is
upon them, and burn them upon the altar.
29:14 But the flesh of the bullock, and his skin, and his dung, shalt thou
burn with fire without the camp: it is a sin offering.
29:15 Thou shalt also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put
their hands upon the head of the ram.
29:16 And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his blood, and
sprinkle it round about upon the altar.
29:17 And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces, and wash the inwards of him,
and his legs, and put them unto his pieces, and unto his head.
29:18 And thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is a burnt
offering unto the LORD: it is a sweet savor, an offering made by
fire unto the LORD.
29:19 And thou shalt take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons shall
put their hands upon the head of the ram.
29:20 Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put it upon
the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right ear of
his sons, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the
great toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood upon the altar
29:21 And thou shalt take of the blood that is upon the altar, and of the
anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron, and upon his garments,
and upon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him:
and he shall be hallowed, and his garments, and his sons, and his
sons’ garments with him.
29:22 Also thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the rump, and the fat
that covereth the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two
kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right shoulder; for it
is a ram of consecration:
29:23 And one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer
out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is before the LORD:
29:24 And thou shalt put all in the hands of Aaron, and in the hands of
his sons; and shalt wave them for a wave offering before the
29:25 And thou shalt receive them of their hands, and burn them upon
the altar for a burnt offering, for a sweet savor before the LORD: it
is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
29:26 And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of Aaron’s consecration,
and wave it for a wave offering before the LORD: and it shall be
29:27 And thou shalt sanctify the breast of the wave offering, and the
shoulder of the heave offering, which is waved, and which is
heaved up, of the ram of the consecration, even of that which is for
Aaron, and of that which is for his sons:
29:28 And it shall be Aaron’s and his sons’ by a statute for ever from the
children of Israel: for it is an heave offering: and it shall be an heave
offering from the children of Israel of the sacrifice of their peace
offerings, even their heave offering unto the LORD.
29:29 And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons’ after him, to be
anointed therein, and to be consecrated in them.
29:30 And that son that is priest in his stead shall put them on seven
days, when he cometh into the tabernacle of the congregation to
minister in the holy place.
29:31 And thou shalt take the ram of the consecration, and seethe his
flesh in the holy place.
29:32 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the
bread that is in the basket by the door of the tabernacle of the
29:33 And they shall eat those things wherewith the atonement was
made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but a stranger shall not
eat thereof, because they are holy.
29:34 And if ought of the flesh of the consecrations, or of the bread,
remain unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder with
fire: it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.
29:35 And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to
all things which I have commanded thee: seven days shalt thou
29:36 And thou shalt offer every day a bullock for a sin offering for
atonement: and thou shalt cleanse the altar, when thou hast made
an atonement for it, and thou shalt anoint it, to sanctify it.
29:37 Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for the altar, and
sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever toucheth
the altar shall be holy.
29:38 Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar; two lambs
of the first year day by day continually.
29:39 The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb
thou shalt offer at even:
29:40 And with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth
part of an hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of an hin of wine
for a drink offering.
29:41 And the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, and shalt do thereto
according to the meat offering of the morning, and according to the
drink offering thereof, for a sweet savor, an offering made by fire
unto the LORD.
29:42 This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your
generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before
the LORD: where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee.
29:43 And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle
shall be sanctified by my glory.
29:44 And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar:
I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me in
the priest’s office.
29:45 And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God.
29:46 And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that brought
them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them:
I am the LORD their God.
30:1 And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon: of shittim
wood shalt thou make it.
30:2 A cubit shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof;
foursquare shall it be: and two cubits shall be the height thereof:
the horns thereof shall be of the same.
30:3 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the
sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt
make unto it a crown of gold round about.
30:4 And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown of it,
by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides of it shalt thou
make it; and they shall be for places for the staves to bear it withal.
30:5 And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them
30:6 And thou shalt put it before the vail that is by the ark of the
testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where
I will meet with thee.
30:7 And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when
he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.
30:8 And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense
upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your
30:9 Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor
meat offering; neither shall ye pour drink offering thereon.
30:10 And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a
year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the
year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations:
it is most holy unto the LORD.
30:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
30:12 When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after their
number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto
the LORD, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague
among them, when thou numberest them.
30:13 This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are
numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel
is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the LORD.
30:14 Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from
twenty years old and above, shall give an offering unto the LORD.
30:15 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than
half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the LORD, to make
an atonement for your souls.
30:16 And thou shalt take the atonement money of the children of Israel,
and shalt appoint it for the service of the tabernacle of the
congregation; that it may be a memorial unto the children of Israel
before the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.
30:17 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
30:18 Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to
wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the
congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.
30:19 For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet
30:20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall
wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the
altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD:
30:21 So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and
it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed
throughout their generations.
30:22 Moreover the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
30:23 Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five
hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two
hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and
30:24 And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the
sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:
30:25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment
compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy
30:26 And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation therewith,
and the ark of the testimony,
30:27 And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and his
vessels, and the altar of incense,
30:28 And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and the laver
and his foot.
30:29 And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy:
whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy.
30:30 And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them,
that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
30:31 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This shall
be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations.
30:32 Upon man’s flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make any
other like it, after the composition of it: it is holy, and it shall be
holy unto you.
30:33 Whosoever compoundeth any like it, or whosoever putteth any of
it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off from his people.
30:34 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices,
stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure
frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:
30:35 And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the
apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy:
30:36 And thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it before the
testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will meet
with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.
30:37 And as for the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall not make
to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be unto
thee holy for the LORD.
30:38 Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereto, shall even be
cut off from his people.
31:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
31:2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur,
of the tribe of Judah:
31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in
understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of
31:4 To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in
31:5 And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to
work in all manner of workmanship.
31:6 And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of
Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are
wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have
31:7 The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony,
and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the
31:8 And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all
his furniture, and the altar of incense,
31:9 And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver
and his foot,
31:10 And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the
priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s
31:11 And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place:
according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.
31:12 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
31:13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my
sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you
throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the
LORD that doth sanctify you.
31:14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every
one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever
doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his
31:15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of
rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath
day, he shall surely be put to death.
31:16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe
the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
31:17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six
days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he
rested, and was refreshed.
31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing
with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of
stone, written with the finger of God.
32:1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out
of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron,
and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for
as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of
Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
32:2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are
in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and
bring them unto me.
32:3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their
ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
32:4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving
tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy
gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
32:5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made
proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD.
32:6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings,
and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to
drink, and rose up to play.
32:7 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy
people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have
32:8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I
commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have
worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be
thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of
32:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and,
behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
32:10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against
them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great
32:11 And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why
doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast
brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with
a mighty hand?
32:12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did
he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume
them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and
repent of this evil against thy people.
32:13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou
swearst by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply
your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have
spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for
32:14 And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto
32:15 And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two
tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on
both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they
32:16 And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the
writing of God, graven upon the tables.
32:17 And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted,
he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.
32:18 And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery,
neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the
noise of them that sing do I hear.
32:19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that
he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and
he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the
32:20 And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire,
and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made
the children of Israel drink of it.
32:21 And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that
thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?
32:22 And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my Lord wax hot: thou
knowest the people, that they are set on mischief.
32:23 For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us: for
as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of
Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
32:24 And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it
off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came
out this calf.
32:25 And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had
made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:)
32:26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the
LORD’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi
gathered themselves together unto him.
32:27 And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put
every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to
gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and
every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.
32:28 And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and
there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.
32:29 For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves today to the LORD,
even every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that he may
bestow upon you a blessing this day.
32:30 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the
people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the
LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.
32:31 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people
have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.
32:32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin—; and if not, blot me, I pray
thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
32:33 And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against
me, him will I blot out of my book.
32:34 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have
spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee:
nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.
32:35 And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf,
which Aaron made.
33:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence, thou
and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of
Egypt, unto the land which I swear unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to
Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will I give it:
33:2 And I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out the
Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the
Hivite, and the Jebusite:
33:3 Unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in
the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume
thee in the way.
33:4 And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned: and
no man did put on him his ornaments.
33:5 For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of
Israel, Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of
thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy
ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.
33:6 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments
by the mount Horeb.
33:7 And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp,
afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the
congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the
LORD went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which
was without the camp.
33:8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle,
that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door,
and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle.
33:9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the
cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle,
and the Lord talked with Moses.
33:10 And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle
door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his
33:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh
unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant
Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the
33:12 And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring
up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt
send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou
hast also found grace in my sight.
33:13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew
me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in
thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.
33:14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee
33:15 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not
33:16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have
found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so
shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that
are upon the face of the earth.
33:17 And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou
hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know
thee by name.
33:18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.
33:19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I
will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be
gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom
I will shew mercy.
33:20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see
me, and live.
33:21 And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt
stand upon a rock:
33:22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will
put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand
while I pass by:
33:23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts:
but my face shall not be seen.
34:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone
like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that
were in the first tables, which thou brakest.
34:2 And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto
mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the
34:3 And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen
throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed
before that mount.
34:4 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses
rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the
LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of
34:5 And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there,
and proclaimed the name of the LORD.
34:6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The
LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and
abundant in goodness and truth,
34:7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression
and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the
iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s
children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
34:8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and
34:9 And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O LORD, let
my LORD, I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people;
and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine
34:10 And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will
do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any
nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work
of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.
34:11 Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive
out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and
the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
34:12 Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the
inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in
the midst of thee:
34:13 But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down
34:14 For thou shalt worship no other God: for the LORD, whose name
is Jealous, is a jealous God:
34:15 Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and
they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods,
and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;
34:16 And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters
go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after
34:17 Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.
