19:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
19:2 Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel,
and say to them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God [am]
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 to idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I
[am] the LORD your God.
19:5 And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace-offerings to 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 aught shall remain until the third day, it shall
be burnt in the fire.
19:7 And if it shall 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
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 stumbling-block
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 tale-bearer among thy
people; neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy
neighbor; I [am] the LORD.
19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thy 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
engender with a diverse kind: Thou shalt not sow thy field with
mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and
woolen come upon thee.
19:20 And whoever lieth carnally with a woman that [is] a
bond-maid 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.
19:21 And he shall bring his trespass-offering to the LORD, to
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
19:23 And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have
planted all manner of trees for food; then ye shall count its
fruit as uncircumcised: three years shall it be as
uncircumcised to you: it shall not be eaten of.
19:24 But in the fourth year all its fruit shall be holy to
praise the LORD [with].
19:25 And in the fifth year shall ye eat of its fruit, that it
may yield to you its increase: 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.
19:29 Do not prostitute thy daughter to cause her to be a
harlot: lest the land should fall to lewdness, 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 shall sojourn with thee in your land, ye
shall not oppress him.
19:34 [But] the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be to 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
19:35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in weight, in
measure of length or of capacity.
19:36 Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin
shall ye have: I [am] the LORD your God, who 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.
