Exodus 23

23:1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thy hand with
 the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
23:2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to [do] evil; neither
 shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest
23:3 Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.
23:4 If thou shalt meet thy enemy's ox or his ass going astray,
 thou shalt surely bring it back to him again.
23:5 If thou shalt see the ass of him that hateth thee lying
 under his burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt
 surely help with him.
23:6 Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.
23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and
 righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.
23:8 And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the
 wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.
23:9 Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger; for ye know the
 heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of
23:10 And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in
 the fruits thereof:
23:11 But the seventh [year] thou shalt let it rest and lie
 still; that the poor of thy people may eat: and what they
 leave, the beasts of the field shall eat. In like manner thou
 shalt deal with thy vineyard, [and] with thy olive-yard.
23:12 Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day
 thou shalt rest: that thy ox and thy ass may rest, and the son
 of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.
23:13 And in all [things] that I have said to you be
 circumspect: and make no mention of the names of other gods,
 neither let it be heard from thy mouth.
23:14 Three times thou shalt keep a feast to me in the year.
23:15 Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt
 eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the
 time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out
 from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)
23:16 And the feast of harvest, the first-fruits of thy labors,
 which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of
 in-gathering, [which] is in the end of the year, when thou hast
 gathered in thy labors out of the field.
23:17 Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before
 the LORD God.
23:18 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with
 leavened bread; neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain
 until the morning.
23:19 The first of the first-fruits of thy land thou shalt bring
 into the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid
 in his mother's milk.
23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the
 way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he
 will not pardon your transgressions: for my name [is] in him.
23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I
 speak; then I will be an enemy to thy enemies, and an adversary
 to thy adversaries.
23:23 For my Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in to
 the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the
 Canaanites, [and] the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I will
 cut them off.
23:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor
 do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them,
 and quite break down their images.
23:25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he will bless
 thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from
 the midst of thee.
23:26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in
 thy land: I will complete the number of thy days.
23:27 I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the
 people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thy enemies
 turn their backs to thee.
23:28 And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out
 the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite from before thee.
23:29 I will not drive them out from before thee in one year;
 lest the land should become desolate, and the beast of the
 field should multiply against thee.
23:30 By little and little I will drive them out from before
 thee, until thou shalt be increased and inherit the land.
23:31 And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even to the sea
 of the Philistines, and from the desert to the river: for I
 will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and
 thou shalt drive them out before thee.
23:32 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their
23:33 They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee to
 sin against me: for if thou shalt serve their gods, it will
 surely be a snare to thee.
