CHAPTER 1

1:1 And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the

tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

1:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of

you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering

of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock.

1:3 If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male

without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the

door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD.

1:4 And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and

it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.

1:5 And he shall kill the bullock before the LORD: and the priests,

Aaron’s sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round

about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the

congregation.

1:6 And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces.

1:7 And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and

lay the wood in order upon the fire:

1:8 And the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and

the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon

the altar:

1:9 But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest

shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made

by fire, of a sweet savor unto the LORD.

228

1:10 And if his offering be of the flocks, namely, of the sheep, or of the

goats, for a burnt sacrifice; he shall bring it a male without blemish.

1:11 And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before the

LORD: and the priests, Aarons sons, shall sprinkle his blood

round about upon the altar.

1:12 And he shall cut it into his pieces, with his head and his fat: and

the priest shall lay them in order on the wood that is on the fire

which is upon the altar:

1:13 But he shall wash the inwards and the legs with water: and the

priest shall bring it all, and burn it upon the altar: it is a burnt

sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto the

LORD.

1:14 And if the burnt sacrifice for his offering to the LORD be of fowls,

then he shall bring his offering of turtledoves, or of young pigeons.

1:15 And the priest shall bring it unto the altar, and wring off his head,

and burn it on the altar; and the blood thereof shall be wrung out at

the side of the altar:

1:16 And he shall pluck away his crop with his feathers, and cast it

beside the altar on the east part, by the place of the ashes:

1:17 And he shall cleave it with the wings thereof, but shall not divide it

asunder: and the priest shall burn it upon the altar, upon the wood

that is upon the fire: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire,

of a sweet savor unto the LORD.

CHAPTER 2

2:1 And when any will offer a meat offering unto the LORD, his

offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put

frankincense thereon:

2:2 And he shall bring it to Aarons sons the priests: and he shall take

thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof,

with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn the

memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a

sweet savor unto the LORD:

229

2:3 And the remnant of the meat offering shall be Aarons and his

sons’: it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made

by fire.

2:4 And if thou bring an oblation of a meat offering baken in the oven,

it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or

unleavened wafers anointed with oil.

2:5 And if thy oblation be a meat offering baken in a pan, it shall be of

fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil.

2:6 Thou shalt part it in pieces, and pour oil thereon: it is a meat

offering.

2:7 And if thy oblation be a meat offering baken in the fryingpan, it

shall be made of fine flour with oil.

2:8 And thou shalt bring the meat offering that is made of these things

unto the LORD: and when it is presented unto the priest, he shall

bring it unto the altar.

2:9 And the priest shall take from the meat offering a memorial thereof,

and shall burn it upon the altar: it is an offering made by fire, of a

sweet savor unto the LORD.

2:10 And that which is left of the meat offering shall be Aarons and his

sons’: it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made

by fire.

2:11 No meat offering, which ye shall bring unto the LORD, shall be

made with leaven: for ye shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, in

any offering of the LORD made by fire.

2:12 As for the oblation of the firstfruits, ye shall offer them unto the

LORD: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savor.

2:13 And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with

salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God to

be lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou

shalt offer salt.

2:14 And if thou offer a meat offering of thy firstfruits unto the LORD,

thou shalt offer for the meat offering of thy firstfruits green ears of

corn dried by the fire, even corn beaten out of full ears.

230

2:15 And thou shalt put oil upon it, and lay frankincense thereon: it is a

meat offering.

2:16 And the priest shall burn the memorial of it, part of the beaten corn

thereof, and part of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense

thereof: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

CHAPTER 3

3:1 And if his oblation be a sacrifice of peace offering, if he offer it of

the herd; whether it be a male or female, he shall offer it without

blemish before the LORD.

3:2 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and kill it

at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron’s sons

the priests shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.

3:3 And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an offering

made by fire unto the LORD; the fat that covereth the inwards,

and all the fat that is upon the inwards,

3:4 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the

flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he

take away.

3:5 And Aaron’s sons shall burn it on the altar upon the burnt

sacrifice, which is upon the wood that is on the fire: it is an

offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto the LORD.

3:6 And if his offering for a sacrifice of peace offering unto the LORD

be of the flock; male or female, he shall offer it without blemish.

3:7 If he offer a lamb for his offering, then shall he offer it before the

LORD.

3:8 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and kill it

before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron’s sons shall

sprinkle the blood thereof round about upon the altar.

3:9 And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an offering

made by fire unto the LORD; the fat thereof, and the whole rump,

it shall he take off hard by the backbone; and the fat that covereth

the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards,

231

3:10 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by

the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he

take away.

3:11 And the priest shall burn it upon the altar: it is the food of the

offering made by fire unto the LORD.

3:12 And if his offering be a goat, then he shall offer it before the

LORD.

3:13 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of it, and kill it before the

tabernacle of the congregation: and the sons of Aaron shall sprinkle

the blood thereof upon the altar round about.

3:14 And he shall offer thereof his offering, even an offering made by

fire unto the LORD; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the

fat that is upon the inwards,

3:15 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by

the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he

take away.

3:16 And the priest shall burn them upon the altar: it is the food of the

offering made by fire for a sweet savor: all the fat is the LORD’s.

3:17 It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all

your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood.

CHAPTER 4

4:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

4:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a soul shall sin through

ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD

concerning things which ought not to be done, and shall do against

any of them:

4:3 If the priest that is anointed do sin according to the sin of the

people; then let him bring for his sin, which he hath sinned, a

young bullock without blemish unto the LORD for a sin offering.

4:4 And he shall bring the bullock unto the door of the tabernacle of

the congregation before the LORD; and shall lay his hand upon the

bullock’s head, and kill the bullock before the LORD.

232

4:5 And the priest that is anointed shall take of the bullock’s blood,

and bring it to the tabernacle of the congregation:

4:6 And the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle of the

blood seven times before the LORD, before the vail of the

sanctuary.

4:7 And the priest shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the

altar of sweet incense before the LORD, which is in the tabernacle

of the congregation; and shall pour all the blood of the bullock at

the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of

the tabernacle of the congregation.

4:8 And he shall take off from it all the fat of the bullock for the sin

offering; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is

upon the inwards,

4:9 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by

the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he

take away,

4:10 As it was taken off from the bullock of the sacrifice of peace

offerings: and the priest shall burn them upon the altar of the burnt

offering.

4:11 And the skin of the bullock, and all his flesh, with his head, and

with his legs, and his inwards, and his dung,

4:12 Even the whole bullock shall he carry forth without the camp unto

a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn him on the

wood with fire: where the ashes are poured out shall he be burnt.

4:13 And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through ignorance, and

the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done

somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD

concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty;

4:14 When the sin, which they have sinned against it, is known, then the

congregation shall offer a young bullock for the sin, and bring him

before the tabernacle of the congregation.

4:15 And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands upon the

head of the bullock before the LORD: and the bullock shall be

killed before the LORD.

233

4:16 And the priest that is anointed shall bring of the bullock’s blood to

the tabernacle of the congregation:

4:17 And the priest shall dip his finger in some of the blood, and

sprinkle it seven times before the LORD, even before the vail.

4:18 And he shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar

which is before the LORD, that is in the tabernacle of the

congregation, and shall pour out all the blood at the bottom of the

altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of

the congregation.

4:19 And he shall take all his fat from him, and burn it upon the altar.

4:20 And he shall do with the bullock as he did with the bullock for a

sin offering, so shall he do with this: and the priest shall make an

atonement for them, and it shall be forgiven them.

4:21 And he shall carry forth the bullock without the camp, and burn

him as he burned the first bullock: it is a sin offering for the

congregation.

4:22 When a ruler hath sinned, and done somewhat through ignorance

against any of the commandments of the LORD his God

concerning things which should not be done, and is guilty;

4:23 Or if his sin, wherein he hath sinned, come to his knowledge; he

shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a male without blemish:

4:24 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and kill it in

the place where they kill the burnt offering before the LORD: it is

a sin offering.

4:25 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his

finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and

shall pour out his blood at the bottom of the altar of burnt offering.

4:26 And he shall burn all his fat upon the altar, as the fat of the

sacrifice of peace offerings: and the priest shall make an atonement

for him as concerning his sin, and it shall be forgiven him.

4:27 And if any one of the common people sin through ignorance, while

he doeth somewhat against any of the commandments of the

234

LORD concerning things which ought not to be done, and be

guilty;

4:28 Or if his sin, which he hath sinned, come to his knowledge: then he

shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a female without blemish,

for his sin which he hath sinned.

4:29 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin offering, and

slay the sin offering in the place of the burnt offering.

4:30 And the priest shall take of the blood thereof with his finger, and

put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour

out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the altar.

4:31 And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat is taken away

from off the sacrifice of peace offerings; and the priest shall burn it

upon the altar for a sweet savor unto the LORD; and the priest

shall make an atonement for him, and it shall be forgiven him.

4:32 And if he bring a lamb for a sin offering, he shall bring it a female

without blemish.

4:33 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin offering, and

slay it for a sin offering in the place where they kill the burnt

offering.

4:34 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his

finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and

shall pour out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the altar:

4:35 And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat of the lamb is

taken away from the sacrifice of the peace offerings; and the priest

shall burn them upon the altar, according to the offerings made by

fire unto the LORD: and the priest shall make an atonement for his

sin that he hath committed, and it shall be forgiven him.

CHAPTER 5

5:1 And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness,

whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not utter it, then he

shall bear his iniquity.

235

5:2 Or if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether it be a carcase of an

unclean beast, or a carcase of unclean cattle, or the carcase of

unclean creeping things, and if it be hidden from him; he also shall

be unclean, and guilty.

5:3 Or if he touch the uncleanness of man, whatsoever uncleanness it

be that a man shall be defiled withal, and it be hid from him; when

he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty.

5:4 Or if a soul swear, pronouncing with his lips to do evil, or to do

good, whatsoever it be that a man shall pronounce with an oath,

and it be hid from him; when he knoweth of it, then he shall be

guilty in one of these.

5:5 And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these things, that

he shall confess that he hath sinned in that thing:

5:6 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD for his sin

which he hath sinned, a female from the flock, a lamb or a kid of

the goats, for a sin offering; and the priest shall make an atonement

for him concerning his sin.

5:7 And if he be not able to bring a lamb, then he shall bring for his

trespass, which he hath committed, two turtledoves, or two young

pigeons, unto the LORD; one for a sin offering, and the other for a

burnt offering.

5:8 And he shall bring them unto the priest, who shall offer that which

is for the sin offering first, and wring off his head from his neck,

but shall not divide it asunder:

5:9 And he shall sprinkle of the blood of the sin offering upon the side

of the altar; and the rest of the blood shall be wrung out at the

bottom of the altar: it is a sin offering.

5:10 And he shall offer the second for a burnt offering, according to the

manner: and the priest shall make an atonement for him for his sin

which he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.

5:11 But if he be not able to bring two turtledoves, or two young

pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth

part of an ephah of fine flour for a sin offering; he shall put no oil

236

upon it, neither shall he put any frankincense thereon: for it is a sin

offering.

5:12 Then shall he bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take his

handful of it, even a memorial thereof, and burn it on the altar,

according to the offerings made by fire unto the LORD: it is a sin

offering.

5:13 And the priest shall make an atonement for him as touching his sin

that he hath sinned in one of these, and it shall be forgiven him: and

the remnant shall be the priest’s, as a meat offering.

5:14 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

5:15 If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, in the holy

things of the LORD; then he shall bring for his trespass unto the

LORD a ram without blemish out of the flocks, with thy

estimation by shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary,

for a trespass offering.

5:16 And he shall make amends for the harm that he hath done in the

holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it unto the

priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram

of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.

5:17 And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are

forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD; though

he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.

5:18 And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy

estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest: and the priest

shall make an atonement for him concerning his ignorance wherein

he erred and wist it not, and it shall be forgiven him.

5:19 It is a trespass offering: he hath certainly trespassed against the

LORD.

CHAPTER 6

6:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

6:2 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto

his neighbor in that which was delivered him to keep, or in

237

fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived

his neighbor;

6:3 Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and

sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning

therein:

6:4 Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall

restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he

hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or

the lost thing which he found,

6:5 Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore

it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and

give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass

offering.

6:6 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD, a ram

without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a

trespass offering, unto the priest:

6:7 And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD:

and it shall be forgiven him for any thing of all that he hath done in

trespassing therein.

6:8 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

6:9 Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt

offering: It is the burnt offering, because of the burning upon the

altar all night unto the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be

burning in it.

6:10 And the priest shall put on his linen garment, and his linen

breeches shall he put upon his flesh, and take up the ashes which

the fire hath consumed with the burnt offering on the altar, and he

shall put them beside the altar.

6:11 And he shall put off his garments, and put on other garments, and

carry forth the ashes without the camp unto a clean place.

6:12 And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put

out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay

the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the fat

of the peace offerings.

238

6:13 The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out.

6:14 And this is the law of the meat offering: the sons of Aaron shall

offer it before the LORD, before the altar.

6:15 And he shall take of it his handful, of the flour of the meat offering,

and of the oil thereof, and all the frankincense which is upon the

meat offering, and shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savor,

even the memorial of it, unto the LORD.

6:16 And the remainder thereof shall Aaron and his sons eat: with

unleavened bread shall it be eaten in the holy place; in the court of

the tabernacle of the congregation they shall eat it.

6:17 It shall not be baken with leaven. I have given it unto them for their

portion of my offerings made by fire; it is most holy, as is the sin

offering, and as the trespass offering.

6:18 All the males among the children of Aaron shall eat of it. It shall be

a statute for ever in your generations concerning the offerings of

the LORD made by fire: every one that toucheth them shall be

holy.

6:19 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

6:20 This is the offering of Aaron and of his sons, which they shall offer

unto the LORD in the day when he is anointed; the tenth part of

an ephah of fine flour for a meat offering perpetual, half of it in the

morning, and half thereof at night.

6:21 In a pan it shall be made with oil; and when it is baken, thou shalt

bring it in: and the baken pieces of the meat offering shalt thou

offer for a sweet savor unto the LORD.

6:22 And the priest of his sons that is anointed in his stead shall offer it:

it is a statute for ever unto the LORD; it shall be wholly burnt.

6:23 For every meat offering for the priest shall be wholly burnt: it shall

not be eaten.

6:24 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

6:25 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the

sin offering: In the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the

sin offering be killed before the LORD: it is most holy.

239

6:26 The priest that offereth it for sin shall eat it: in the holy place shall

it be eaten, in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation.

6:27 Whatsoever shall touch the flesh thereof shall be holy: and when

there is sprinkled of the blood thereof upon any garment, thou

shalt wash that whereon it was sprinkled in the holy place.

6:28 But the earthen vessel wherein it is sodden shall be broken: and if it

be sodden in a brasen pot, it shall be both scoured, and rinsed in

water.

6:29 All the males among the priests shall eat thereof: it is most holy.

6:30 And no sin offering, whereof any of the blood is brought into the

tabernacle of the congregation to reconcile withal in the holy place,

shall be eaten: it shall be burnt in the fire.

CHAPTER 7

7:1 Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering: it is most holy.

7:2 In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the

trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle round

about upon the altar.

7:3 And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and the fat that

covereth the inwards,

7:4 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the

flanks, and the caul that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall

he take away:

7:5 And the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made

by fire unto the LORD: it is a trespass offering.

7:6 Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in

the holy place: it is most holy.

7:7 As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is one law

for them: the priest that maketh atonement therewith shall have it.

7:8 And the priest that offereth any mans burnt offering, even the

priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he

hath offered.

240

7:9 And all the meat offering that is baken in the oven, and all that is

dressed in the fryingpan, and in the pan, shall be the priests that

offereth it.

7:10 And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall all the

sons of Aaron have, one as much as another.

7:11 And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he

shall offer unto the LORD.

7:12 If he offer it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice

of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened

wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour,

fried.

7:13 Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread

with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings.

7:14 And of it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for an heave

offering unto the LORD, and it shall be the priest’s that sprinkleth

the blood of the peace offerings.

7:15 And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving

shall be eaten the same day that it is offered; he shall not leave any

of it until the morning.

7:16 But if the sacrifice of his offering be a vow, or a voluntary offering,

it shall be eaten the same day that he offereth his sacrifice: and on

the morrow also the remainder of it shall be eaten:

7:17 But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall

be burnt with fire.

7:18 And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be

eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it

be imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination,

and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity.

7:19 And the flesh that toucheth any unclean thing shall not be eaten; it

shall be burnt with fire: and as for the flesh, all that be clean shall

eat thereof.

241

7:20 But the soul that eateth of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace

offerings, that pertain unto the LORD, having his uncleanness

upon him, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.

7:21 Moreover the soul that shall touch any unclean thing, as the

uncleanness of man, or any unclean beast, or any abominable

unclean thing, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace

offerings, which pertain unto the LORD, even that soul shall be cut

off from his people.

7:22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

7:23 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat no manner of

fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat.

7:24 And the fat of the beast that dieth of itself, and the fat of that

which is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use: but ye

shall in no wise eat of it.

7:25 For whosoever eateth the fat of the beast, of which men offer an

offering made by fire unto the LORD, even the soul that eateth it

shall be cut off from his people.

7:26 Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or

of beast, in any of your dwellings.

7:27 Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even that

soul shall be cut off from his people.

7:28 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

7:29 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, He that offereth the

sacrifice of his peace offerings unto the LORD shall bring his

oblation unto the LORD of the sacrifice of his peace offerings.

7:30 His own hands shall bring the offerings of the LORD made by fire,

the fat with the breast, it shall he bring, that the breast may be

waved for a wave offering before the LORD.

7:31 And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar: but the breast shall

be Aarons and his sons.

7:32 And the right shoulder shall ye give unto the priest for an heave

offering of the sacrifices of your peace offerings.

242

7:33 He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood of the peace

offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part.

7:34 For the wave breast and the heave shoulder have I taken of the

children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings,

and have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons by a

statute for ever from among the children of Israel.

7:35 This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing

of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in the

day when he presented them to minister unto the LORD in the

priest’s office;

7:36 Which the LORD commanded to be given them of the children of

Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever

throughout their generations.

7:37 This is the law of the burnt offering, of the meat offering, and of

the sin offering, and of the trespass offering, and of the

consecrations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings;

7:38 Which the LORD commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day

that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations

unto the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai.

CHAPTER 8

8:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

8:2 Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the

anointing oil, and a bullock for the sin offering, and two rams, and a

basket of unleavened bread;

8:3 And gather thou all the congregation together unto the door of the

tabernacle of the congregation.

8:4 And Moses did as the LORD commanded him; and the assembly

was gathered together unto the door of the tabernacle of the

congregation.

8:5 And Moses said unto the congregation, This is the thing which the

LORD commanded to be done.

243

8:6 And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with

water.

8:7 And he put upon him the coat, and girded him with the girdle, and

clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him, and he

girded him with the curious girdle of the ephod, and bound it unto

him therewith.

8:8 And he put the breastplate upon him: also he put in the breastplate

the Urim and the Thummim.

8:9 And he put the mitre upon his head; also upon the mitre, even

upon his forefront, did he put the golden plate, the holy crown; as

the LORD commanded Moses.

8:10 And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and

all that was therein, and sanctified them.

8:11 And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed

the altar and all his vessels, both the laver and his foot, to sanctify

them.

8:12 And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aarons head, and

anointed him, to sanctify him.

8:13 And Moses brought Aarons sons, and put coats upon them, and

girded them with girdles, and put bonnets upon them; as the

LORD commanded Moses.

8:14 And he brought the bullock for the sin offering: and Aaron and his

sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock for the sin

offering.

8:15 And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the

horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the

altar, and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and

sanctified it, to make reconciliation upon it.

8:16 And he took all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the caul

above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and Moses

burned it upon the altar.

8:17 But the bullock, and his hide, his flesh, and his dung, he burnt with

fire without the camp; as the LORD commanded Moses.

244

8:18 And he brought the ram for the burnt offering: and Aaron and his

sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

8:19 And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar

round about.

8:20 And he cut the ram into pieces; and Moses burnt the head, and the

pieces, and the fat.

8:21 And he washed the inwards and the legs in water; and Moses burnt

the whole ram upon the altar: it was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet

savor, and an offering made by fire unto the LORD; as the LORD

commanded Moses.

8:22 And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration: and Aaron

and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

8:23 And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it upon

the tip of Aarons right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand,

and upon the great toe of his right foot.

8:24 And he brought Aaron’s sons, and Moses put of the blood upon

the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumbs of their right hands,

and upon the great toes of their right feet: and Moses sprinkled the

blood upon the altar round about.

8:25 And he took the fat, and the rump, and all the fat that was upon

the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and

their fat, and the right shoulder:

8:26 And out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before the

LORD, he took one unleavened cake, and a cake of oiled bread, and

one wafer, and put them on the fat, and upon the right shoulder:

8:27 And he put all upon Aarons hands, and upon his sons hands, and

waved them for a wave offering before the LORD.

8:28 And Moses took them from off their hands, and burnt them on the

altar upon the burnt offering: they were consecrations for a sweet

savor: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

8:29 And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave offering

before the LORD: for of the ram of consecration it was Moses

part; as the LORD commanded Moses.

245

8:30 And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was

upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his

garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sons’ garments with

him; and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his

sons’ garments with him.

8:31 And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at the

door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and there eat it with the

bread that is in the basket of consecrations, as I commanded,

saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it.

8:32 And that which remaineth of the flesh and of the bread shall ye

burn with fire.

8:33 And ye shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the

congregation in seven days, until the days of your consecration be

at an end: for seven days shall he consecrate you.

8:34 As he hath done this day, so the LORD hath commanded to do, to

make an atonement for you.

8:35 Therefore shall ye abide at the door of the tabernacle of the

congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the

LORD, that ye die not: for so I am commanded.

8:36 So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD commanded

by the hand of Moses.

CHAPTER 9

9:1 And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron

and his sons, and the elders of Israel;

9:2 And he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a sin offering,

and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them

before the LORD.

9:3 And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak, saying, Take ye a

kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both of the

first year, without blemish, for a burnt offering;

246

9:4 Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the

LORD; and a meat offering mingled with oil: for to day the LORD

will appear unto you.

9:5 And they brought that which Moses commanded before the

tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near

and stood before the LORD.

9:6 And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commanded

that ye should do: and the glory of the LORD shall appear unto

you.

9:7 And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy sin

offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for

thyself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people,

and make an atonement for them; as the LORD commanded.

9:8 Aaron therefore went unto the altar, and slew the calf of the sin

offering, which was for himself.

9:9 And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and he dipped

his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar, and

poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar:

9:10 But the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of the sin

offering, he burnt upon the altar; as the LORD commanded Moses.

9:11 And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without the camp.

9:12 And he slew the burnt offering; and Aarons sons presented unto

him the blood, which he sprinkled round about upon the altar.

9:13 And they presented the burnt offering unto him, with the pieces

thereof, and the head: and he burnt them upon the altar.

9:14 And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt them upon

the burnt offering on the altar.

9:15 And he brought the peoples offering, and took the goat, which

was the sin offering for the people, and slew it, and offered it for

sin, as the first.

9:16 And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it according to the

manner.

247

9:17 And he brought the meat offering, and took an handful thereof, and

burnt it upon the altar, beside the burnt sacrifice of the morning.

9:18 He slew also the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice of peace

offerings, which was for the people: and Aaron’s sons presented

unto him the blood, which he sprinkled upon the altar round about,

9:19 And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump, and that which

covereth the inwards, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver:

9:20 And they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fat upon

the altar:

9:21 And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave

offering before the LORD; as Moses commanded.

9:22 And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed them,

and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt

offering, and peace offerings.

9:23 And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the

congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory

of the LORD appeared unto all the people.

9:24 And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed

upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the

people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.

CHAPTER 10

10:1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his

censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered

strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.

10:2 And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and

they died before the LORD.

10:3 Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake,

saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before

all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.

10:4 And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the

uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your

brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.

248

10:5 So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp;

as Moses had said.

10:6 And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar,

his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest

ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your

brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the

LORD hath kindled.

10:7 And ye shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the

congregation, lest ye die: for the anointing oil of the LORD is upon

you. And they did according to the word of Moses.

10:8 And the LORD spake unto Aaron, saying,

10:9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee,

when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it

shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:

10:10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and

between unclean and clean;

10:11 And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which

the LORD hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

10:12 And Moses spake unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar,

his sons that were left, Take the meat offering that remaineth of the

offerings of the LORD made by fire, and eat it without leaven

beside the altar: for it is most holy:

10:13 And ye shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due, and thy

sons due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire: for so I am

commanded.

10:14 And the wave breast and heave shoulder shall ye eat in a clean

place; thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee: for they be

thy due, and thy sons due, which are given out of the sacrifices of

peace offerings of the children of Israel.

10:15 The heave shoulder and the wave breast shall they bring with the

offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering

before the LORD; and it shall be thine, and thy sons with thee, by

a statute for ever; as the LORD hath commanded.

249

10:16 And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and,

behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar,

the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,

10:17 Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place,

seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the

iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before

the LORD?

10:18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place:

ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.

10:19 And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered

their sin offering and their burnt offering before the LORD; and

such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to

day, should it have been accepted in the sight of the LORD?

10:20 And when Moses heard that, he was content.

CHAPTER 11

11:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto

them,

11:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts

which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

11:3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the

cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.

11:4 Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of

them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the

cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

11:5 And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the

hoof; he is unclean unto you.

11:6 And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the

hoof; he is unclean unto you.

11:7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet

he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.

250

11:8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch;

they are unclean to you.

11:9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins

and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye

eat.

11:10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers,

of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in

the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:

11:11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of

their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.

11:12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an

abomination unto you.

11:13 And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the

fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle,

and the ossifrage, and the ospray,

11:14 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;

11:15 Every raven after his kind;

11:16 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk

after his kind,

11:17 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,

11:18 And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,

11:19 And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the

bat.

11:20 All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination

unto you.

11:21 Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth

upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon

the earth;

11:22 Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the

bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the

grasshopper after his kind.

251

11:23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be

an abomination unto you.

11:24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcase

of them shall be unclean until the even.

11:25 And whosoever beareth ought of the carcase of them shall wash his

clothes, and be unclean until the even.

11:26 The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not

clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every

one that toucheth them shall be unclean.

11:27 And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts

that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth

their carcase shall be unclean until the even.

11:28 And he that beareth the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and

be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.

11:29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things

that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the

tortoise after his kind,

11:30 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and

the mole.

11:31 These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth

touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.

11:32 And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall,

it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or

skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it

must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it

shall be cleansed.

11:33 And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth,

whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.

11:34 Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water cometh

shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such

vessel shall be unclean.

252

11:35 And every thing whereupon any part of their carcase falleth shall

be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be

broken down: for they are unclean and shall be unclean unto you.

11:36 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water,

shall be clean: but that which toucheth their carcase shall be

unclean.

11:37 And if any part of their carcase fall upon any sowing seed which is

to be sown, it shall be clean.

11:38 But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their

carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.

11:39 And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he that toucheth the

carcase thereof shall be unclean until the even.

11:40 And he that eateth of the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and

be unclean until the even: he also that beareth the carcase of it shall

wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

11:41 And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an

abomination; it shall not be eaten.

11:42 Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all

four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that

creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an

abomination.

11:43 Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing

that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them,

that ye should be defiled thereby.

11:44 For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify

yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye

defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth

upon the earth.

11:45 For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt,

to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

11:46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living

creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that

creepeth upon the earth:

253

11:47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and

between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be

eaten.

CHAPTER 12

12:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

12:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have

conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean

seven days; according to the days of the separation for her

infirmity shall she be unclean.

12:3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.

12:4 And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and

thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the

sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled.

12:5 But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks,

as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her

purifying threescore and six days.

12:6 And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a

daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt

offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering,

unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest:

12:7 Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an atonement for

her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is

the law for her that hath born a male or a female.

12:8 And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two

turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and

the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make an atonement

for her, and she shall be clean.

CHAPTER 13

13:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,

254

13:2 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or

bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of

leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto

one of his sons the priests:

13:3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and

when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight

be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and

the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

13:4 If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be

not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white;

then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days:

13:5 And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if

the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread not in the

skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:

13:6 And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day: and,

behold, if the plague be somewhat dark, and the plague spread not

in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean: it is but a scab:

and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

13:7 But if the scab spread much abroad in the skin, after that he hath

been seen of the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen of the

priest again.

13:8 And if the priest see that, behold, the scab spreadeth in the skin,

then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a leprosy.

13:9 When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought

unto the priest;

13:10 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the rising be white in

the skin, and it have turned the hair white, and there be quick raw

flesh in the rising;

13:11 It is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall

pronounce him unclean, and shall not shut him up: for he is

unclean.

13:12 And if a leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the leprosy

cover all the skin of him that hath the plague from his head even to

his foot, wheresoever the priest looketh;

255

13:13 Then the priest shall consider: and, behold, if the leprosy have

covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the

plague: it is all turned white: he is clean.

13:14 But when raw flesh appeareth in him, he shall be unclean.

13:15 And the priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him to be

unclean: for the raw flesh is unclean: it is a leprosy.

13:16 Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed unto white, he shall

come unto the priest;

13:17 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the plague be turned

into white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that hath the

plague: he is clean.

13:18 The flesh also, in which, even in the skin thereof, was a boil, and is

healed,

13:19 And in the place of the boil there be a white rising, or a bright spot,

white, and somewhat reddish, and it be shewed to the priest;

13:20 And if, when the priest seeth it, behold, it be in sight lower than

the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white; the priest shall

pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the

boil.

13:21 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs

therein, and if it be not lower than the skin, but be somewhat dark;

then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

13:22 And if it spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall

pronounce him unclean: it is a plague.

13:23 But if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not, it is a

burning boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

13:24 Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is a hot burning,

and the quick flesh that burneth have a white bright spot,

somewhat reddish, or white;

13:25 Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the hair in the

bright spot be turned white, and it be in sight deeper than the skin;

it is a leprosy broken out of the burning: wherefore the priest shall

pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

256

13:26 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hair in

the bright spot, and it be no lower than the other skin, but be

somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

13:27 And the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: and if it be

spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce

him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

13:28 And if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not in the skin,

but it be somewhat dark; it is a rising of the burning, and the priest

shall pronounce him clean: for it is an inflammation of the burning.

13:29 If a man or woman have a plague upon the head or the beard;

13:30 Then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be in sight

deeper than the skin; and there be in it a yellow thin hair; then the

priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry scall, even a leprosy

upon the head or beard.

13:31 And if the priest look on the plague of the scall, and, behold, it be

not in sight deeper than the skin, and that there is no black hair in

it; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague of the scall

seven days:

13:32 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague: and,

behold, if the scall spread not, and there be in it no yellow hair, and

the scall be not in sight deeper than the skin;

13:33 He shall be shaven, but the scall shall he not shave; and the priest

shall shut up him that hath the scall seven days more:

13:34 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall: and,

behold, if the scall be not spread in the skin, nor be in sight deeper

than the skin; then the priest shall pronounce him clean: and he

shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

13:35 But if the scall spread much in the skin after his cleansing;

13:36 Then the priest shall look on him: and, behold, if the scall be

spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for yellow hair; he is

unclean.

257

13:37 But if the scall be in his sight at a stay, and that there is black hair

grown up therein; the scall is healed, he is clean: and the priest shall

pronounce him clean.

13:38 If a man also or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright

spots, even white bright spots;

13:39 Then the priest shall look: and, behold, if the bright spots in the

skin of their flesh be darkish white; it is a freckled spot that

groweth in the skin; he is clean.

13:40 And the man whose hair is fallen off his head, he is bald; yet is he

clean.

13:41 And he that hath his hair fallen off from the part of his head

toward his face, he is forehead bald: yet is he clean.

13:42 And if there be in the bald head, or bald forehead, a white reddish

sore; it is a leprosy sprung up in his bald head, or his bald

forehead.

13:43 Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the rising of the

sore be white reddish in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, as

the leprosy appeareth in the skin of the flesh;

13:44 He is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall pronounce him

utterly unclean; his plague is in his head.

13:45 And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and

his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and

shall cry, Unclean, unclean.

13:46 All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled;

he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his

habitation be.

13:47 The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it be a

woollen garment, or a linen garment;

13:48 Whether it be in the warp, or woof; of linen, or of woollen;

whether in a skin, or in any thing made of skin;

13:49 And if the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the

skin, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin; it is

a plague of leprosy, and shall be shewed unto the priest:

258

13:50 And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up it that hath

the plague seven days:

13:51 And he shall look on the plague on the seventh day: if the plague

be spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in a

skin, or in any work that is made of skin; the plague is a fretting

leprosy; it is unclean.

13:52 He shall therefore burn that garment, whether warp or woof, in

woollen or in linen, or any thing of skin, wherein the plague is: for

it is a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the fire.

13:53 And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not spread

in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of

skin;

13:54 Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein

the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more:

13:55 And the priest shall look on the plague, after that it is washed: and,

behold, if the plague have not changed his color, and the plague be

not spread; it is unclean; thou shalt burn it in the fire; it is fret

inward, whether it be bare within or without.

13:56 And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague be somewhat dark

after the washing of it; then he shall rend it out of the garment, or

out of the skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof:

13:57 And if it appear still in the garment, either in the warp, or in the

woof, or in any thing of skin; it is a spreading plague: thou shalt

burn that wherein the plague is with fire.

13:58 And the garment, either warp, or woof, or whatsoever thing of skin

it be, which thou shalt wash, if the plague be departed from them,

then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean.

13:59 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or

linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to

pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

CHAPTER 14

14:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

259

14:2 This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing: He

shall be brought unto the priest:

14:3 And the priest shall go forth out of the camp; and the priest shall

look, and, behold, if the plague of leprosy be healed in the leper;

14:4 Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be

cleansed two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and

hyssop:

14:5 And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an

earthen vessel over running water:

14:6 As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood, and the

scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in

the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water:

14:7 And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the

leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let

the living bird loose into the open field.

14:8 And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off

all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean: and

after that he shall come into the camp, and shall tarry abroad out of

his tent seven days.

14:9 But it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair

off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he

shall shave off: and he shall wash his clothes, also he shall wash his

flesh in water, and he shall be clean.

14:10 And on the eighth day he shall take two he lambs without blemish,

and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish, and three tenth

deals of fine flour for a meat offering, mingled with oil, and one log

of oil.

14:11 And the priest that maketh him clean shall present the man that is

to be made clean, and those things, before the LORD, at the door

of the tabernacle of the congregation:

14:12 And the priest shall take one he lamb, and offer him for a trespass

offering, and the log of oil, and wave them for a wave offering

before the LORD:

260

14:13 And he shall slay the lamb in the place where he shall kill the sin

offering and the burnt offering, in the holy place: for as the sin

offering is the priest’s, so is the trespass offering: it is most holy:

14:14 And the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass

offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of

him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand,

and upon the great toe of his right foot:

14:15 And the priest shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it into the

palm of his own left hand:

14:16 And the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left

hand, and shall sprinkle of the oil with his finger seven times before

the LORD:

14:17 And of the rest of the oil that is in his hand shall the priest put

upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon

the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right

foot, upon the blood of the trespass offering:

14:18 And the remnant of the oil that is in the priest’s hand he shall pour

upon the head of him that is to be cleansed: and the priest shall

make an atonement for him before the LORD.

14:19 And the priest shall offer the sin offering, and make an atonement

for him that is to be cleansed from his uncleanness; and afterward

he shall kill the burnt offering:

14:20 And the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the meat offering

upon the altar: and the priest shall make an atonement for him, and

he shall be clean.

14:21 And if he be poor, and cannot get so much; then he shall take one

lamb for a trespass offering to be waved, to make an atonement for

him, and one tenth deal of fine flour mingled with oil for a meat

offering, and a log of oil;

14:22 And two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, such as he is able to

get; and the one shall be a sin offering, and the other a burnt

offering.

261

14:23 And he shall bring them on the eighth day for his cleansing unto the

priest, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, before

the LORD.

14:24 And the priest shall take the lamb of the trespass offering, and the

log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before

the LORD:

14:25 And he shall kill the lamb of the trespass offering, and the priest

shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and put it

upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon

the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right

foot:

14:26 And the priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his own left

hand:

14:27 And the priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil

that is in his left hand seven times before the LORD:

14:28 And the priest shall put of the oil that is in his hand upon the tip

of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of

his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the

place of the blood of the trespass offering:

14:29 And the rest of the oil that is in the priest’s hand he shall put upon

the head of him that is to be cleansed, to make an atonement for

him before the LORD.

14:30 And he shall offer the one of the turtledoves, or of the young

pigeons, such as he can get;

14:31 Even such as he is able to get, the one for a sin offering, and the

other for a burnt offering, with the meat offering: and the priest

shall make an atonement for him that is to be cleansed before the

LORD.

14:32 This is the law of him in whom is the plague of leprosy, whose

hand is not able to get that which pertaineth to his cleansing.

14:33 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

262

14:34 When ye be come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a

possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land

of your possession;

14:35 And he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest,

saying, It seemeth to me there is as it were a plague in the house:

14:36 Then the priest shall command that they empty the house, before

the priest go into it to see the plague, that all that is in the house be

not made unclean: and afterward the priest shall go in to see the

house:

14:37 And he shall look on the plague, and, behold, if the plague be in the

walls of the house with hollow strakes, greenish or reddish, which

in sight are lower than the wall;

14:38 Then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house,

and shut up the house seven days:

14:39 And the priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall look:

and, behold, if the plague be spread in the walls of the house;

14:40 Then the priest shall command that they take away the stones in

which the plague is, and they shall cast them into an unclean place

without the city:

14:41 And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and

they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off without the city

into an unclean place:

14:42 And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of

those stones; and he shall take other morter, and shall plaister the

house.

14:43 And if the plague come again, and break out in the house, after that

he hath taken away the stones, and after he hath scraped the house,

and after it is plaistered;

14:44 Then the priest shall come and look, and, behold, if the plague be

spread in the house, it is a fretting leprosy in the house; it is

unclean.

263

14:45 And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber

thereof, and all the morter of the house; and he shall carry them

forth out of the city into an unclean place.

14:46 Moreover he that goeth into the house all the while that it is shut

up shall be unclean until the even.

14:47 And he that lieth in the house shall wash his clothes; and he that

eateth in the house shall wash his clothes.

14:48 And if the priest shall come in, and look upon it, and, behold, the

plague hath not spread in the house, after the house was plaistered:

then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the plague

is healed.

14:49 And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood,

and scarlet, and hyssop:

14:50 And he shall kill the one of the birds in an earthen vessel over

running water:

14:51 And he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet,

and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird, and

in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times:

14:52 And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, and with

the running water, and with the living bird, and with the cedar

wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet:

14:53 But he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open

fields, and make an atonement for the house: and it shall be clean.

14:54 This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and scall,

14:55 And for the leprosy of a garment, and of a house,

14:56 And for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot:

14:57 To teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean: this is the law of

leprosy.

CHAPTER 15

15:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying,

264

15:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any

man hath a running issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he is

unclean.

15:3 And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his flesh run

with his issue, or his flesh be stopped from his issue, it is his

uncleanness.

15:4 Every bed, whereon he lieth that hath the issue, is unclean: and

every thing, whereon he sitteth, shall be unclean.

15:5 And whosoever toucheth his bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe

himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

15:6 And he that sitteth on any thing whereon he sat that hath the issue

shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean

until the even.

15:7 And he that toucheth the flesh of him that hath the issue shall

wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until

the even.

15:8 And if he that hath the issue spit upon him that is clean; then he

shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean

until the even.

15:9 And what saddle soever he rideth upon that hath the issue shall be

unclean.

15:10 And whosoever toucheth any thing that was under him shall be

unclean until the even: and he that beareth any of those things shall

wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until

the even.

15:11 And whomsoever he toucheth that hath the issue, and hath not

rinsed his hands in water, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe

himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

15:12 And the vessel of earth, that he toucheth which hath the issue,

shall be broken: and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water.

15:13 And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he

shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his

clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean.

265

15:14 And on the eighth day he shall take to him two turtledoves, or two

young pigeons, and come before the LORD unto the door of the

tabernacle of the congregation, and give them unto the priest:

15:15 And the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin offering, and the

other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement

for him before the LORD for his issue.

15:16 And if any man’s seed of copulation go out from him, then he shall

wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even.

15:17 And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of

copulation, shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the

even.

15:18 The woman also with whom man shall lie with seed of copulation,

they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the

even.

15:19 And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood,

she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her

shall be unclean until the even.

15:20 And every thing that she lieth upon in her separation shall be

unclean: every thing also that she sitteth upon shall be unclean.

15:21 And whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe

himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

15:22 And whosoever toucheth any thing that she sat upon shall wash

his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the

even.

15:23 And if it be on her bed, or on any thing whereon she sitteth, when

he toucheth it, he shall be unclean until the even.

15:24 And if any man lie with her at all, and her flowers be upon him, he

shall be unclean seven days; and all the bed whereon he lieth shall

be unclean.

15:25 And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days out of the

time of her separation, or if it run beyond the time of her

separation; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as

the days of her separation: she shall be unclean.

266

15:26 Every bed whereon she lieth all the days of her issue shall be unto

her as the bed of her separation: and whatsoever she sitteth upon

shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her separation.

15:27 And whosoever toucheth those things shall be unclean, and shall

wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until

the even.

15:28 But if she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself

seven days, and after that she shall be clean.

15:29 And on the eighth day she shall take unto her two turtles, or two

young pigeons, and bring them unto the priest, to the door of the

tabernacle of the congregation.

15:30 And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other

for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for her

before the LORD for the issue of her uncleanness.

15:31 Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness;

that they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile my

tabernacle that is among them.

15:32 This is the law of him that hath an issue, and of him whose seed

goeth from him, and is defiled therewith;

15:33 And of her that is sick of her flowers, and of him that hath an

issue, of the man, and of the woman, and of him that lieth with her

that is unclean.

CHAPTER 16

16:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons

of Aaron, when they offered before the LORD, and died;

16:2 And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother,

that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail

before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I

will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.

16:3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock

for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.

267

16:4 He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen

breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and

with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments;

therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.

16:5 And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two

kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering.

16:6 And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which is for

himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house.

16:7 And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the

LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

16:8 And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the

LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat.

16:9 And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD’s lot fell,

and offer him for a sin offering.

16:10 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be

presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him,

and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.

16:11 And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for

himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his

house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for

himself:

16:12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the

altar before the LORD, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten

small, and bring it within the vail:

16:13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD, that

the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the

testimony, that he die not:

16:14 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with

his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat

shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.

16:15 Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people,

and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did

268

with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat,

and before the mercy seat:

16:16 And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the

uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their

transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle

of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of

their uncleanness.

16:17 And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation

when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he

come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his

household, and for all the congregation of Israel.

16:18 And he shall go out unto the altar that is before the LORD, and

make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood of the bullock,

and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar

round about.

16:19 And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven

times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the

children of Israel.

16:20 And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and

the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the

live goat:

16:21 And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat,

and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and

all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head

of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into

the wilderness:

16:22 And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not

inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

16:23 And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation, and

shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went

into the holy place, and shall leave them there:

16:24 And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put

on his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt offering, and

269

the burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for

himself, and for the people.

16:25 And the fat of the sin offering shall he burn upon the altar.

16:26 And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes,

and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.

16:27 And the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin

offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the

holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall

burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.

16:28 And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his

flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp.

16:29 And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh

month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls,

and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a

stranger that sojourneth among you:

16:30 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to

cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the

LORD.

16:31 It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your

souls, by a statute for ever.

16:32 And the priest, whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall

consecrate to minister in the priest’s office in his fathers stead,

shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen clothes, even

the holy garments:

16:33 And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and he

shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the congregation, and

for the altar, and he shall make an atonement for the priests, and

for all the people of the congregation.

16:34 And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an

atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year.

And he did as the LORD commanded Moses.

270

CHAPTER 17

17:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

17:2 Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the children of

Israel, and say unto them; This is the thing which the LORD hath

commanded, saying,

17:3 What man soever there be of the house of Israel, that killeth an ox,

or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that killeth it out of the camp,

17:4 And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the

congregation, to offer an offering unto the LORD before the

tabernacle of the LORD; blood shall be imputed unto that man; he

hath shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his

people:

17:5 To the end that the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices,

which they offer in the open field, even that they may bring them

unto the LORD, unto the door of the tabernacle of the

congregation, unto the priest, and offer them for peace offerings

unto the LORD.

17:6 And the priest shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar of the LORD

at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and burn the fat

for a sweet savor unto the LORD.

17:7 And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after

whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever

unto them throughout their generations.

17:8 And thou shalt say unto them, Whatsoever man there be of the

house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among you, that

offereth a burnt offering or sacrifice,

17:9 And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the

congregation, to offer it unto the LORD; even that man shall be cut

off from among his people.

17:10 And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the

strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood;

I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will

cut him off from among his people.

271

17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you

upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the

blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

17:12 Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat

blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat

blood.

17:13 And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the

strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any

beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood

thereof, and cover it with dust.

17:14 For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof:

therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of

no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof:

whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.

17:15 And every soul that eateth that which died of itself, or that which

was torn with beasts, whether it be one of your own country, or a

stranger, he shall both wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water,

and be unclean until the even: then shall he be clean.

17:16 But if he wash them not, nor bathe his flesh; then he shall bear his

iniquity.

CHAPTER 18

18:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

18:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the

LORD your God.

18:3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye

not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring

you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.

18:4 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk

therein: I am the LORD your God.

18:5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a

man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.

272

18:6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to

uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.

18:7 The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt

thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her

nakedness.

18:8 The nakedness of thy fathers wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy

fathers nakedness.

18:9 The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter

of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even

their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.

18:10 The nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or of thy daughter’s

daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is

thine own nakedness.

18:11 The nakedness of thy father’s wife’s daughter, begotten of thy

father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

18:12 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy fathers sister: she is

thy father’s near kinswoman.

18:13 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister: for

she is thy mother’s near kinswoman.

18:14 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s brother, thou

shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt.

18:15 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law: she

is thy sons wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

18:16 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brothers wife: it is

thy brothers nakedness.

18:17 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her

daughter, neither shalt thou take her sons daughter, or her

daughters daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her

near kinswomen: it is wickedness.

18:18 Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover

her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.

18:19 Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her

nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.

273

18:20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbor’s wife, to

defile thyself with her.

18:21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to

Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the

LORD.

18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is

abomination.

18:23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith:

neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it

is confusion.

18:24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the

nations are defiled which I cast out before you:

18:25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof

upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.

18:26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall

not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own

nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:

18:27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which

were before you, and the land is defiled;)

18:28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued

out the nations that were before you.

18:29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the

souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

18:30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any

one of these abominable customs, which were committed before

you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD

your God.

CHAPTER 19

19:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

19:2 Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say

unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.

274

19:3 Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my

sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.

19:4 Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am

the LORD your God.

19:5 And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD, ye

shall offer it at your own will.

19:6 It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if

ought remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire.

19:7 And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall

not be accepted.

19:8 Therefore every one that eateth it shall bear his iniquity, because

he hath profaned the hallowed thing of the LORD: and that soul

shall be cut off from among his people.

19:9 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly

reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings

of thy harvest.

19:10 And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather

every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and

stranger: I am the LORD your God.

19:11 Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.

19:12 And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou

profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

19:13 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbor, neither rob him: the wages of

him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the

morning.

19:14 Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the

blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the LORD.

19:15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect

the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in

righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbor.

19:16 Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people:

neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbor; I am the

LORD.

275

19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any

wise rebuke thy neighbor, and not suffer sin upon him.

19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of

thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the

LORD.

19:19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender

with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed:

neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon

thee.

19:20 And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid,

betrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom

given her; she shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death,

because she was not free.

19:21 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD, unto the

door of the tabernacle of the congregation, even a ram for a trespass

offering.

19:22 And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the

trespass offering before the LORD for his sin which he hath done:

and the sin which he hath done shall be forgiven him.

19:23 And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all

manner of trees for food, then ye shall count the fruit thereof as

uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it

shall not be eaten of.

19:24 But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy to praise

the LORD withal.

19:25 And in the fifth year shall ye eat of the fruit thereof, that it may

yield unto you the increase thereof: I am the LORD your God.

19:26 Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye use

enchantment, nor observe times.

19:27 Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou

mar the corners of thy beard.

19:28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print

any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

276

19:29 Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the

land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.

19:30 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the

LORD.

19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after

wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.

19:32 Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of the

old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD.

19:33 And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex

him.

19:34 But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one

born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were

strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

19:35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight,

or in measure.

19:36 Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye

have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land

of Egypt.

19:37 Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments,

and do them: I am the LORD.

CHAPTER 20

20:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

20:2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of

the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that

giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death:

the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

20:3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from

among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech,

to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

20:4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the

man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

277

20:5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family,

and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit

whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

20:6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and

after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face

against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD

your God.

20:8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the LORD

which sanctify you.

20:9 For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely

put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood

shall be upon him.

20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another mans wife,

even he that committeth adultery with his neighbor’s wife, the

adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

20:11 And the man that lieth with his fathers wife hath uncovered his

father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their

blood shall be upon them.

20:12 And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely

be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be

upon them.

20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of

them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to

death; their blood shall be upon them.

20:14 And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they

shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no

wickedness among you.

20:15 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and

ye shall slay the beast.

20:16 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto,

thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put

to death; their blood shall be upon them.

278

20:17 And if a man shall take his sister, his fathers daughter, or his

mothers daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his

nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight

of their people: he hath uncovered his sister’s nakedness; he shall

bear his iniquity.

20:18 And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall

uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she

hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be

cut off from among their people.

20:19 And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mothers sister,

nor of thy fathers sister: for he uncovereth his near kin: they shall

bear their iniquity.

20:20 And if a man shall lie with his uncles wife, he hath uncovered his

uncles nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless.

20:21 And if a man shall take his brothers wife, it is an unclean thing: he

hath uncovered his brothers nakedness; they shall be childless.

20:22 Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and

do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue

you not out.

20:23 And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast

out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I

abhorred them.

20:24 But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give

it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey:

I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other

people.

20:25 Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean,

and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your

souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living

thing that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you

as unclean.

20:26 And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have

severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.

279

20:27 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard,

shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones:

their blood shall be upon them.

CHAPTER 21

21:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto the priests the sons

of Aaron, and say unto them, There shall none be defiled for the

dead among his people:

21:2 But for his kin, that is near unto him, that is, for his mother, and

for his father, and for his son, and for his daughter, and for his

brother.

21:3 And for his sister a virgin, that is nigh unto him, which hath had no

husband; for her may he be defiled.

21:4 But he shall not defile himself, being a chief man among his people,

to profane himself.

21:5 They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they

shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their

flesh.

21:6 They shall be holy unto their God, and not profane the name of

their God: for the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and the

bread of their God, they do offer: therefore they shall be holy.

21:7 They shall not take a wife that is a whore, or profane; neither shall

they take a woman put away from her husband: for he is holy unto

his God.

21:8 Thou shalt sanctify him therefore; for he offereth the bread of thy

God: he shall be holy unto thee: for I the LORD, which sanctify

you, am holy.

21:9 And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing

the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire.

21:10 And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose

head the anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put

on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor rend his clothes;

280

21:11 Neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself for his

father, or for his mother;

21:12 Neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary

of his God; for the crown of the anointing oil of his God is upon

him: I am the LORD.

21:13 And he shall take a wife in her virginity.

21:14 A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or an harlot, these

shall he not take: but he shall take a virgin of his own people to

wife.

21:15 Neither shall he profane his seed among his people: for I the

LORD do sanctify him.

21:16 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

21:17 Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their

generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer

the bread of his God.

21:18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not

approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any

thing superfluous,

21:19 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,

21:20 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be

scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;

21:21 No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall

come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath

a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.

21:22 He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the

holy.

21:23 Only he shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar,

because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for I

the LORD do sanctify them.

21:24 And Moses told it unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the

children of Israel.

281

CHAPTER 22

22:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

22:2 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, that they separate themselves

from the holy things of the children of Israel, and that they profane

not my holy name in those things which they hallow unto me: I am

the LORD.

22:3 Say unto them, Whosoever he be of all your seed among your

generations, that goeth unto the holy things, which the children of

Israel hallow unto the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him,

that soul shall be cut off from my presence: I am the LORD.

22:4 What man soever of the seed of Aaron is a leper, or hath a running

issue; he shall not eat of the holy things, until he be clean. And

whoso toucheth any thing that is unclean by the dead, or a man

whose seed goeth from him;

22:5 Or whosoever toucheth any creeping thing, whereby he may be

made unclean, or a man of whom he may take uncleanness,

whatsoever uncleanness he hath;

22:6 The soul which hath touched any such shall be unclean until even,

and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he wash his flesh with

water.

22:7 And when the sun is down, he shall be clean, and shall afterward

eat of the holy things; because it is his food.

22:8 That which dieth of itself, or is torn with beasts, he shall not eat to

defile himself therewith; I am the LORD.

22:9 They shall therefore keep mine ordinance, lest they bear sin for it,

and die therefore, if they profane it: I the LORD do sanctify them.

22:10 There shall no stranger eat of the holy thing: a sojourner of the

priest, or an hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing.

22:11 But if the priest buy any soul with his money, he shall eat of it,

and he that is born in his house: they shall eat of his meat.

22:12 If the priests daughter also be married unto a stranger, she may

not eat of an offering of the holy things.

282

22:13 But if the priests daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no

child, and is returned unto her fathers house, as in her youth, she

shall eat of her fathers meat: but there shall be no stranger eat

thereof.

22:14 And if a man eat of the holy thing unwittingly, then he shall put

the fifth part thereof unto it, and shall give it unto the priest with

the holy thing.

22:15 And they shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel,

which they offer unto the LORD;

22:16 Or suffer them to bear the iniquity of trespass, when they eat their

holy things: for I the LORD do sanctify them.

22:17 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

22:18 Speak unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of

Israel, and say unto them, Whatsoever he be of the house of Israel,

or of the strangers in Israel, that will offer his oblation for all his

vows, and for all his freewill offerings, which they will offer unto

the LORD for a burnt offering;

22:19 Ye shall offer at your own will a male without blemish, of the

beeves, of the sheep, or of the goats.

22:20 But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer: for it shall

not be acceptable for you.

22:21 And whosoever offereth a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the

LORD to accomplish his vow, or a freewill offering in beeves or

sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish

therein.

22:22 Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or

scabbed, ye shall not offer these unto the LORD, nor make an

offering by fire of them upon the altar unto the LORD.

22:23 Either a bullock or a lamb that hath any thing superfluous or

lacking in his parts, that mayest thou offer for a freewill offering;

but for a vow it shall not be accepted.

283

22:24 Ye shall not offer unto the LORD that which is bruised, or

crushed, or broken, or cut; neither shall ye make any offering

thereof in your land.

22:25 Neither from a stranger’s hand shall ye offer the bread of your God

of any of these; because their corruption is in them, and blemishes

be in them: they shall not be accepted for you.

22:26 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

22:27 When a bullock, or a sheep, or a goat, is brought forth, then it shall

be seven days under the dam; and from the eighth day and

thenceforth it shall be accepted for an offering made by fire unto

the LORD.

22:28 And whether it be cow, or ewe, ye shall not kill it and her young

both in one day.

22:29 And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the LORD,

offer it at your own will.

22:30 On the same day it shall be eaten up; ye shall leave none of it until

the morrow: I am the LORD.

22:31 Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am the

LORD.

22:32 Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed

among the children of Israel: I am the LORD which hallow you,

22:33 That brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am

the LORD.

CHAPTER 23

23:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning

the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy

convocations, even these are my feasts.

23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of

rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the

sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.

284

23:4 These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which

ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

23:5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD’s

passover.

23:6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of

unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat

unleavened bread.

23:7 In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no

servile work therein.

23:8 But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven

days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no

servile work therein.

23:9 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

23:10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be

come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the

harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your

harvest unto the priest:

23:11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for

you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.

23:12 And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb

without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the

LORD.

23:13 And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour

mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the LORD for a

sweet savor: and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the

fourth part of an hin.

23:14 And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears,

until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your

God: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all

your dwellings.

23:15 And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath,

from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven

sabbaths shall be complete:

285

23:16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number

fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD.

23:17 Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two

tenth deals; they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with

leaven; they are the firstfruits unto the LORD.

23:18 And ye shall offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of

the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be

for a burnt offering unto the LORD, with their meat offering, and

their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of sweet savor

unto the LORD.

23:19 Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and

two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings.

23:20 And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits for

a wave offering before the LORD, with the two lambs: they shall

be holy to the LORD for the priest.

23:21 And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy

convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall

be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your

generations.

23:22 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make

clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest,

neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt

leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the LORD your

God.

23:23 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in

the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of

blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

23:25 Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering

made by fire unto the LORD.

23:26 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

23:27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of

atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall

286

afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the

LORD.

23:28 And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of

atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your

God.

23:29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same

day, he shall be cut off from among his people.

23:30 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day,

the same soul will I destroy from among his people.

23:31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever

throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

23:32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your

souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even,

shall ye celebrate your sabbath.

23:33 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

23:34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this

seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto

the LORD.

23:35 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile

work therein.

23:36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD:

on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye

shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn

assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.

23:37 These are the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be

holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the

LORD, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink

offerings, every thing upon his day:

23:38 Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and

beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which

ye give unto the LORD.

23:39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have

gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the

287

LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the

eighth day shall be a sabbath.

23:40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees,

branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows

of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven

days.

23:41 And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year.

It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate

it in the seventh month.

23:42 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall

dwell in booths:

23:43 That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel

to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I

am the LORD your God.

23:44 And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the

LORD.

CHAPTER 24

24:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

24:2 Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure oil

olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually.

24:3 Without the vail of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the

congregation, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the

morning before the LORD continually: it shall be a statute for ever

in your generations.

24:4 He shall order the lamps upon the pure candlestick before the

LORD continually.

24:5 And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two

tenth deals shall be in one cake.

24:6 And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure

table before the LORD.

288

24:7 And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may

be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto

the LORD.

24:8 Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD continually,

being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant.

24:9 And it shall be Aarons and his sons’; and they shall eat it in the

holy place: for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the

LORD made by fire by a perpetual statute.

24:10 And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an

Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel: and this son of the

Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp;

24:11 And the Israelitish womans son blasphemed the name of the Lord,

and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mothers

name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:)

24:12 And they put him in ward, that the mind of the LORD might be

shewed them.

24:13 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

24:14 Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that

heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the

congregation stone him.

24:15 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying,

Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin.

24:16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be

put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as

well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he

blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shall be put to death.

24:17 And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death.

24:18 And he that killeth a beast shall make it good; beast for beast.

24:19 And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbor; as he hath done, so

shall it be done to him;

24:20 Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a

blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again.

289

24:21 And he that killeth a beast, he shall restore it: and he that killeth a

man, he shall be put to death.

24:22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one

of your own country: for I am the LORD your God.

24:23 And Moses spake to the children of Israel, that they should bring

forth him that had cursed out of the camp, and stone him with

stones. And the children of Israel did as the LORD commanded

Moses.

CHAPTER 25

25:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying,

25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye

come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a

sabbath unto the LORD.

25:3 Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune

thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;

25:4 But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a

sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune

thy vineyard.

25:5 That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt

not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed: for it is a

year of rest unto the land.

25:6 And the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you; for thee, and for

thy servant, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for

thy stranger that sojourneth with thee.

25:7 And for thy cattle, and for the beast that are in thy land, shall all

the increase thereof be meat.

25:8 And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven

times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years

shall be unto thee forty and nine years.

25:9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the

tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye

make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.

290

25:10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty

throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a

jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession,

and ye shall return every man unto his family.

25:11 A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow,

neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes

in it of thy vine undressed.

25:12 For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the

increase thereof out of the field.

25:13 In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his

possession.

25:14 And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbor, or buyest ought of thy

neighbor’s hand, ye shall not oppress one another:

25:15 According to the number of years after the jubile thou shalt buy of

thy neighbor, and according unto the number of years of the fruits

he shall sell unto thee:

25:16 According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price

thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish

the price of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits

doth he sell unto thee.

25:17 Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy

God:for I am the LORD your God.

25:18 Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do

them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety.

25:19 And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and

dwell therein in safety.

25:20 And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold,

we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase:

25:21 Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and

it shall bring forth fruit for three years.

25:22 And ye shall sow the eighth year, and eat yet of old fruit until the

ninth year; until her fruits come in ye shall eat of the old store.

291

25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine, for ye are

strangers and sojourners with me.

25:24 And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption

for the land.

25:25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his

possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he

redeem that which his brother sold.

25:26 And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to

redeem it;

25:27 Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the

overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto

his possession.

25:28 But if he be not able to restore it to him, then that which is sold

shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of

jubile: and in the jubile it shall go out, and he shall return unto his

possession.

25:29 And if a man sell a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may

redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; within a full year may

he redeem it.

25:30 And if it be not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the

house that is in the walled city shall be established for ever to him

that bought it throughout his generations: it shall not go out in the

jubile.

25:31 But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about

them shall be counted as the fields of the country: they may be

redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubile.

25:32 Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites, and the houses of the

cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time.

25:33 And if a man purchase of the Levites, then the house that was sold,

and the city of his possession, shall go out in the year of jubile: for

the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among

the children of Israel.

292

25:34 But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is

their perpetual possession.

25:35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee;

then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a

sojourner; that he may live with thee.

25:36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy

brother may live with thee.

25:37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy

victuals for increase.

25:38 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land

of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.

25:39 And if thy brother that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor, and be

sold unto thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a

bondservant:

25:40 But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with thee,

and shall serve thee unto the year of jubile.

25:41 And then shall he depart from thee, both he and his children with

him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession

of his fathers shall he return.

25:42 For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the land of

Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen.

25:43 Thou shalt not rule over him with rigor; but shalt fear thy God.

25:44 Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have,

shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye

buy bondmen and bondmaids.

25:45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among

you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you,

which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession.

25:46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after

you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen

for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not

rule one over another with rigor.

293

25:47 And if a sojourner or stranger wax rich by thee, and thy brother

that dwelleth by him wax poor, and sell himself unto the stranger

or sojourner by thee, or to the stock of the strangers family:

25:48 After that he is sold he may be redeemed again; one of his brethren

may redeem him:

25:49 Either his uncle, or his uncles son, may redeem him, or any that is

nigh of kin unto him of his family may redeem him; or if he be able,

he may redeem himself.

25:50 And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that

he was sold to him unto the year of jubile: and the price of his sale

shall be according unto the number of years, according to the time

of an hired servant shall it be with him.

25:51 If there be yet many years behind, according unto them he shall

give again the price of his redemption out of the money that he was

bought for.

25:52 And if there remain but few years unto the year of jubile, then he

shall count with him, and according unto his years shall he give him

again the price of his redemption.

25:53 And as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him: and the other

shall not rule with rigor over him in thy sight.

25:54 And if he be not redeemed in these years, then he shall go out in

the year of jubile, both he, and his children with him.

25:55 For unto me the children of Israel are servants; they are my

servants whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: I am the

LORD your God.

CHAPTER 26

26:1 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a

standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your

land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.

26:2 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the

LORD.

294

26:3 If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do

them;

26:4 Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her

increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

26:5 And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage

shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the

full, and dwell in your land safely.

26:6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none

shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land,

neither shall the sword go through your land.

26:7 And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by

the sword.

26:8 And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you

shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before

you by the sword.

26:9 For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and

multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.

26:10 And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because of the

new.

26:11 And I set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor

you.

26:12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be

my people.

26:13 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land

of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken

the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.

26:14 But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these

commandments;

26:15 And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my

judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that

ye break my covenant:

26:16 I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror,

consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes,

295

and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for

your enemies shall eat it.

26:17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before

your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall

flee when none pursueth you.

26:18 And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will

punish you seven times more for your sins.

26:19 And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your

heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:

26:20 And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not

yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their

fruits.

26:21 And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I

will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your

sins.

26:22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of

your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in

number; and your high ways shall be desolate.

26:23 And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will

walk contrary unto me;

26:24 Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet

seven times for your sins.

26:25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of

my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities,

I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into

the hand of the enemy.

26:26 And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall

bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread

again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.

26:27 And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary

unto me;

26:28 Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will

chastise you seven times for your sins.

296

26:29 And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your

daughters shall ye eat.

26:30 And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images,

and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my

soul shall abhor you.

26:31 And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto

desolation, and I will not smell the savor of your sweet odours.

26:32 And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which

dwell therein shall be astonished at it.

26:33 And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a

sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities

waste.

26:34 Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate,

and ye be in your enemies land; even then shall the land rest, and

enjoy her sabbaths.

26:35 As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in

your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.

26:36 And upon them that are left alive of you I will send a faintness into

their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken

leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword;

and they shall fall when none pursueth.

26:37 And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a sword,

when none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand before

your enemies.

26:38 And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of your

enemies shall eat you up.

26:39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in

your enemies lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall

they pine away with them.

26:40 If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers,

with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also

they have walked contrary unto me;

297

26:41 And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought

them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised

hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their

iniquity:

26:42 Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my

covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I

remember; and I will remember the land.

26:43 The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths,

while she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the

punishment of their iniquity: because, even because they despised

my judgments, and because their soul abhorred my statutes.

26:44 And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I

will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them

utterly, and to break my covenant with them: for I am the LORD

their God.

26:45 But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors,

whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the

heathen, that I might be their God: I am the LORD.

26:46 These are the statutes and judgments and laws, which the LORD

made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the

hand of Moses.

CHAPTER 27

27:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

27:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When a man

shall make a singular vow, the persons shall be for the LORD by

thy estimation.

27:3 And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old

even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty

shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

27:4 And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.

298

27:5 And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then

thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the

female ten shekels.

27:6 And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy

estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the

female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver.

27:7 And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy

estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.

27:8 But if he be poorer than thy estimation, then he shall present

himself before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according

to his ability that vowed shall the priest value him.

27:9 And if it be a beast, whereof men bring an offering unto the LORD,

all that any man giveth of such unto the LORD shall be holy.

27:10 He shall not alter it, nor change it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a

good: and if he shall at all change beast for beast, then it and the

exchange thereof shall be holy.

27:11 And if it be any unclean beast, of which they do not offer a

sacrifice unto the LORD, then he shall present the beast before the

priest:

27:12 And the priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad: as thou

valuest it, who art the priest, so shall it be.

27:13 But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a fifth part thereof

unto thy estimation.

27:14 And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy unto the

LORD, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad:

as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it stand.

27:15 And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house, then he shall add

the fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it, and it shall be

his.

27:16 And if a man shall sanctify unto the LORD some part of a field of

his possession, then thy estimation shall be according to the seed

thereof: an homer of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of

silver.

299

27:17 If he sanctify his field from the year of jubile, according to thy

estimation it shall stand.

27:18 But if he sanctify his field after the jubile, then the priest shall

reckon unto him the money according to the years that remain,

even unto the year of the jubile, and it shall be abated from thy

estimation.

27:19 And if he that sanctified the field will in any wise redeem it, then

he shall add the fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it,

and it shall be assured to him.

27:20 And if he will not redeem the field, or if he have sold the field to

another man, it shall not be redeemed any more.

27:21 But the field, when it goeth out in the jubile, shall be holy unto the

LORD, as a field devoted; the possession thereof shall be the

priest’s.

27:22 And if a man sanctify unto the LORD a field which he hath

bought, which is not of the fields of his possession;

27:23 Then the priest shall reckon unto him the worth of thy estimation,

even unto the year of the jubile: and he shall give thine estimation

in that day, as a holy thing unto the LORD.

27:24 In the year of the jubile the field shall return unto him of whom it

was bought, even to him to whom the possession of the land did

belong.

27:25 And all thy estimations shall be according to the shekel of the

sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.

27:26 Only the firstling of the beasts, which should be the LORD’s

firstling, no man shall sanctify it; whether it be ox, or sheep: it is

the LORD’s.

27:27 And if it be of an unclean beast, then he shall redeem it according to

thine estimation, and shall add a fifth part of it thereto: or if it be

not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to thy estimation.

27:28 Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto the

LORD of all that he hath, both of man and beast, and of the field of

300

his possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is

most holy unto the LORD.

27:29 None devoted, which shall be devoted of men, shall be redeemed;

but shall surely be put to death.

27:30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of

the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’s: it is holy unto the LORD.

27:31 And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add

thereto the fifth part thereof.

27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of

whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the

LORD.

27:33 He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he

change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change

thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.

27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded

Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
