Leviticus 19

Leviticus 19

A repetition of various laws.

1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye 1shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.

3 ¶ Ye shall 1fear every man his mother, and his father, and 2keep my sabbaths: I am the Lord your God.

4 ¶ Turn 1ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the Lord your God.

5 ¶ And if ye 1offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the Lord, ye shall offer it at your own will.

6 It 1shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if ought remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire.

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

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 1cut off from among his people.

9 ¶ And when 1ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest.

10 And thou shalt not 1glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; 2thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the Lord your God.

11 ¶ Ye 1shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.

12 ¶ And ye shall not 1swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.

13 ¶ Thou 1shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: 2the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.

14 ¶ Thou 1shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the Lord.

15 ¶ Ye 1shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.

16 ¶ Thou 1shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the Lord.

17 ¶ Thou 1shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: 2thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, aand not suffer sin upon him.

18 ¶ Thou 1shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but 2thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord.

19 ¶ Ye shall keep my statutes. 1Thou 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.

20 ¶ And whosoever 1lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, abetrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; bshe shall be scourged; they 2shall not be put to death, because she was not free.

21 And he shall bring his 1trespass offering unto the Lord, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, even a ram for a trespass offering.

22 And 1the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering before the Lord for his sin which he hath done: and the sin which he hath done shall be forgiven him.

23 ¶ And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye shall count the fruit thereof as 1uncircumcised: 2three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it shall not be eaten of.

24 But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be aholy to praise the Lord withal.

25 And in the fifth year 1shall ye eat of the fruit thereof, that it may yield unto you the increase thereof: I am the Lord your God.

26 ¶ Ye 1shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye 2use enchantment, nor 3observe times.

27 Ye 1shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.

28 Ye shall not 1make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.

29 ¶ Do 1not aprostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.

30 ¶ Ye shall 1keep my sabbaths, and 2reverence my sanctuary: I am the Lord.

311Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.

32 ¶ Thou shalt 1rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the Lord.

33 ¶ And 1if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not avex him.

34 but the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you 1as one born among you, and 2thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye 3were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

35 ¶ Ye 1shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.

36 1Just balances, just aweights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: 2I am the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

37 Therefore 1shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the Lord.
