Moral and Ceremonial Laws

1. And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

2. Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them, You shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.

3. You shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.

4. Turn not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the LORD your God.

5. And if you offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD, you shall offer it of your own will.

6. It shall be eaten the same day you offer it, and on the morrow: and if any remains until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire.

7. And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted.

8. Therefore everyone that eats it shall bear his iniquity, because he has profaned the hallowed thing of the LORD: and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

9. And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field, neither shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest.

10. And you shall not glean your vineyard, neither shall you gather every grape of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God.

11. You shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.

12. And you shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD.

13. You shall not cheat your neighbor, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not remain with you all night until the morning.

14. You shall not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling block before the blind, but shall fear your God: I am the LORD.

15. You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: you shall not favor the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.

16. You shall not go up and down as a talebearer among your people: neither shall you be hostile to the blood of your neighbor: I am the LORD.

17. You shall not hate your brother in your heart: you shall in any case rebuke your neighbor, and not permit sin to remain upon him.

18. You shall not avenge, nor hold any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.

19. You shall keep my statutes. You shall not let your cattle mate with a different kind: you shall not sow your field with mixed seed: neither shall a garment mixed of linen and wool come upon you.

20. And whoever lies carnally with a woman that is a servant, betrothed to a husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; she shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free.

21. And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, even a ram for a trespass offering.

22. And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering before the LORD for his sin which he has done: and the sin which he has done shall be forgiven him.

23. And when you shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then you shall count the fruit thereof as uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised to you: it shall not be eaten of.

24. But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy to praise the LORD with.

25. And in the fifth year shall you eat of the fruit thereof, that it may yield to you the increase thereof: I am the LORD your God.

26. You shall not eat anything with the blood: neither shall you use enchantment, nor observe times.

27. You shall not trim the sides of your heads, neither shall you mar the edges of your beard.

28. You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

29. Do not prostitute your daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.

30. You shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.

31. Do not regard those who have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.

32. You shall rise up before the gray head, and honor the face of the old man, and fear your God: I am the LORD.

33. And if a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not trouble him.

34. But the stranger that dwells with you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

35. You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in length measure, in weight, or in quantity.

36. Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall you have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

37. Therefore shall you observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the LORD.
