Leviticus 19

<< Leviticus 19 >>
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
 

1And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto all the congregation of the sons of Israel and say unto them, Ye shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy. 3Ye shall fear, every man his mother and his father and keep my sabbaths. I AM your God. 4Do not return unto idols nor make to yourselves molten gods. I AM your God. 5And when ye offer a sacrifice of peace unto the LORD, ye shall offer it of your own free will. 6It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it and on the next day, and any remaining until the third day shall be burnt in the fire. 7And if it is eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted; 8and whoever eats it shall bear his iniquity because he has profaned the holiness of the LORD, and that person shall be cut off from among his people. 9And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not completely reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest. 10And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather the fallen grapes of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and the stranger. I AM your God.

11Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another. 12And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou defile the name of thy God. I am the LORD. 13Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him. Do not detain the wages of the work of the hired man in thy house until the morning. 14Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God. I am the LORD. 15Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, neither pleasing the poor, nor favoring the mighty; but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour. 16Thou shalt not travel about as a talebearer among thy people; neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour. I am the LORD. 17Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart; thou shalt rebuke thy neighbour in sincerity, that thou not bear sin for him. 18Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the sons of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. I am the LORD.

19Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy animal join with a diverse kind for mixtures; thou shalt not sow thy field with mixture, neither shalt thou wear garments of a mixture of different things. 20And when a man lies carnally with a woman that is a bondmaid, betrothed to a husband and has not been completely ransomed nor been given her freedom, both shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death because she is not free. 21And he shall bring in expiation for his guilt unto the LORD, unto the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, a ram for expiation of guilt. 22And the priest shall reconcile him with the ram of the guilt before the LORD for his sin which he has committed, and the sin which he has committed shall be forgiven him. 23And when ye have come into the land and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye shall circumcise the foreskin of the fruit; three years it shall be uncircumcised unto you; it shall not be eaten of. 24But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holiness of rejoicing unto the LORD. 25And in the fifth year ye shall eat of the fruit thereof that it may yield unto you the increase thereof. I AM your God. 26Ye shall not eat any thing with blood. Ye shall not be fortunetellers, nor diviners. 27Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard. 28Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you. I am the LORD. 29Do not contaminate thy daughter, causing her to commit fornication, lest the land be prostituted, and the land become full of wickedness.

30Ye shall keep my sabbaths and reverence my sanctuary. I am the LORD. 31Do not return unto spiritists or seek after diviners, to be defiled by them. I AM your God. 32Thou shalt rise up before grey hair and honour the face of the elder and fear thy God. I am the LORD. 33And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not oppress him. 34But the stranger that dwells with you shall be as the natural of yourselves, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. I AM your God. 35Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in measurement of land, in weight, or in other measure. 36Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin shall ye have. I AM your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. 37Keep, therefore, all my statutes and all my rights and do them. I am the LORD.
