13 ■■ Take heed to thyself that thou offer
not thy burnt-offerings in every place that
thou seest :

14 =But in the place which the Lord
shall choose in one of thy tribes, there thou
shalt offer thy burnt-offerings, and there thou
shalt do all that I command thee.

15 Notwithstanding, 'thou mayest kill
and eat flesh in all thy gates, whatsoever thy
soul lusteth after, according to the blessing
of the Lord thy God which he hath given
thee: "the unclean and the clean may eat,
thereof, "^ as of the roe-buck, and as of the
hart.

16 yOnly ye shall not eat the blood; ye
shall pour it upon the earth as water.

17 IF Thou mayest not eat within thy gates
the tithe of thy corn, or of thy wine, or of thy
oil, or the firstlings of thy herds or of thy
nock,nor any of thy vows which thou vowest,
nor thy free-will-offerings, or heave-offering
of thine hand :

18 ^ But thou must eat them before the
Lord thy God in the place which the Lord
thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and
thy daughter, and thy man-servant, and thy
maid-servant, and the Levite that is within
thy gates : and thou shalt rejoice before the
Lord thy God in all that thou puttest thine
hands unto.

19 "Take heed to thyself that thou for-
sake not the Levite f as long as thou livest
upon the earth.

20 IT When the Lord thy God shall en-
large thy border, '• as he hath promised thee,
and thou shalt say, I will eat flesh, be-
cause thy soul longeth to eat flesh, thou
mayest eat flesh, whatsoever thy soul lusteth
after.

21 If the place which the Lord thy God
hath chosen to put his name there be too far
from thee, then thou shalt kill of thy herd
and of thy flock, which the Lord hath given
thee, as I have commanded thee, and thou
shalt eat in thy gates whatsoever thy soul
lusteth after.

22 "Even as the roe-buck and the hart is
eaten, so thou shalt eat them : the unclean
and the clean shall eat q/'them alike.

23 "^ Only the sure that thou eat not the
blood : « for the blood is the life ; and thou
mayest not eat the life with the flesh.

24 Thou shalt not eat it ; thou shalt pour
it upon the earth as water.

25 Thou shalt not eat it ; *" that it may go
well with thee, and with thy children after
thee, swhen thou shalt do that which is right
in the sight of the Lord.

26 Only thy ''holy things which thou
hast, and ' thy vows, thou shalt take, and
go unto the place which the Lord shall
choose :

27 And ^ thou shalt offer thy bUrnt-offer-
ings, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar
of the Lord thy God : and the blood of thy
sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar
of the Lord thy God, and thou shalt eat the
flesh.

28 Observe and hear all these words which
I command thee, ' that it may go well with
thee, and with thy children after thee for
ever, when thou doest that which is good and
right in the sight of the Lord thy God.

29 1 When -"the Lord thy God shall cut
off" the nations from before thee, whither thou
goest to possess them, and thou t succeedest
them, and dwellest in their land ;

30 Take heed to thyself "that thou be
not snared f by following them, after that
they be destroyed from before thee ; and that
thou inquire not after their gods, saying,
How did these nations serve their gods ?
even so will I do likewise.

31 "Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord
thy God; for every f abomination to the
Lord which he hateth have they done unto
their gods; for Peven their sons and their
daughters they have burnt in the fire to their
gods.

32 What thing soever I command you.

CHAP. xm.

1 Enticers to idolatry, 6 how near soever unto thee, 9
are to he stoned to death. 12 Idolatrous cities are
not to be spared.

IF there arise among you a prophet, or a
■^ dreamer of dreams, ^ and giveth thee a
sign or a wonder,

2 And « the sign or the wonder come to
pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying,
Let us go after other gods, which thou hast
not known, and let us serve them ;

3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words
of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams :
for the Lord your God ^proveth you, to
know whether ye love the Lord your God
with all your heart and with all your soul.

4 Ye shall <=walk after the Lord your
God, and fear him, and keep his command-
ments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve
him, and •" cleave unto him.

5 And e that prophet, or that dreamer of
dreams, shall be put to death; because he
hath t spoken to turn you away from the
Lord your God, which brought you out of
the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of
the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of
the way which the Lord thy God command-
ed thee to walk in. •■ So shalt thou put the
evil away from the midst of thee.

6 IT ' If thy brother, the son of thy mother,
or thy son, or thy daughter, or ''the wife of
thy bosom, or thy friend, 'which is as thine
own soul, entice thee secretly, saying. Let us
go and serve other gods, which thou hast not
known, thou, nor thy fathers ;

7 Namely, of the gods of the people which
are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far
off" from thee, from the one end of the earth
even unto the other end of the earth ;

8 Thou shalt "not consent unto him, nor
hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye
pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither
shalt thou conceal him :

9 But "thou shalt surely kill him; "thine
hand shall be first upon him to put him to
death, and afterwards the hand of all the
people.

10 And thou shalt stone hiin with stones
that he die ; because he hath sought to thrust
thee away from the Lord thy God, which
brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from
the house of f bondage.

11 And Pall Israel shall hear, and fear, and
shall do no more any such wickedness as this
is, among you.

12 ITiIf thou shalt hear say in one of thy
cities, which the Lord thy God hath given
thee to dwell there, saying,

13 Certain men, || the children of Belial,
' are gone out from among you, and have
"withdrawn the inhabitants of their city,
saying, tLet us go and serve other gods,
which ye have not known ;

14 Then shalt thou inquire, and make
search, and ask diligently; and behold, if it
be truth, and the thing certain, that such
abomination is wrought among you ;

15 Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants
of that city with the edge of the sword, "de-
stroying it utterly, and all that is therein,
and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the
sword.

16 And thou shalt gather all the spoil of
it into the midst of the street thereof, and
shalt ^ burn with fire the city, and all the spoil
thereof every whit, for the Lord thy God :
and it shall be >an heap for ever; it shall not
be built again.

17 And ^ there shall cleave nought of the
II cursed thing to thine hand : that the Lord
may =^ turn from the fierceness of his anger,
and shew thee mercy, and have compassion
upon thee, and multiply thee, '' as he hath
sworn unto thy fathers ;

18 When thou shalt hearken to the voice
of the Lord thy God, *= to keep all his com-
mandments which I command thee this day,
to do that which is right in the eyes of the
Lord thy God.

beasts, 9 of fishes, 11 of fowls. 21 That which dieth

vice. 23 Tithes and firstlings of rejoicing before the
Lord. 28 The third year's tithe of alms and charity.

YE are ''the children of the Lord your
God : •• ye shall not cut yourselves, nor
make any baldness between your eyes for
the dead.

2 ' For thou art an holy people unto the
Lord thy God, and the Lord hath chosen
thee to be a peculiar people unto himself,

cheweth the cud among the beasts, that ye
shall eat.

21 IT 'Ye shall not eat q/" any thing that
dieth of itself: thou shalt give it unto the
stranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat
it ; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien : "" for
thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy

so that thou art not able to carry it ; or 'if
the place be too far from thee, which the
Lord thy God shall choose to set his name

thee:

25 Then shalt thou turn it into money,
and bind up the money in thine hand, and

bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the
same year, and shalt lay it up within thy

CHAP. XV.

I The seventh year a year of release for the poor. 7 It
must be no let of lending or giving. 12 An Hebrew
servant, 16 except he will not depart, must in the seventh
year go forth free arid well furnished. 19 All firstling
males of the cattle are to be sanctified unto the Lord.

AT the end of "^ every seven years thou
shalt make a release.

2 And this is the manner of the release :
Every t creditor that lendeth aught unto his
neighbour, shall release it; he shall not exact
it of his neighbour, or of his brother ; because
it is called the Lord's release.

3 ''Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it
again : but that which is thine with thy bro-
ther thine hand shall release:

4 II Save when there shall be no poor
among you ; *= for the Lord shall greatly
bless thee in the land which the Lord thy
God giveth thee for an inheritance to pos-
sess it:

5 Only •• if thou carefully hearken unto the
voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do
all these commandments which I command
thee this day.

6 For the Lord thy God blesseth thee,
as he promised thee: and * thou shalt lend
unto many nations, but thou shalt not bor-
row; and ^thou shalt reign over many na-
tions, but they shall not reign over thee.

7 Tllf there be among you a poor man of
one of thy brethren within any of thy gates
in thy land which the Lord thy God giveth
thee, ethou shalt not harden thy heart, nor
sliut thine hand from thy poor brother:

8 ''But thou shalt open thine hand wide
unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient
for his need, in that which he wanteth.

Lord against thee, and 'it be sin unto
thee.

10 Thou shalt surely give him, and ""thine
heart shall not be grieved when thou givest
unto him : because that " for this thing the
Lord thy God shall bless thee in all thy
works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand
unto.

11 For °the poor shall never cease out of
the land : therefore I command thee, saying.
Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy
brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in
thy land.

12 ^And^'ii thy brother, anHebrew man,
or an Hebrew woman, be sold unto thee,
and serve thee six years ; then in the seventh
year thou shalt let him go free from thee.

13 And when thou sendest him out free
from thee, thou shalt not let him go away
empty :

14 Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of
thy flock, and out of thy floor, and out of
thy wine-press : of that wherewith the Lord
thy God hath i blessed thee thou shalt give
unto him.

15 And 'thou shalt remember that thou
wast a bond-man in the land of Egypt, and
the Lord thy God redeemed thee : therefore
I command thee this thing to-day.

16 And it shall be, *if he say unto thee,
I will not go away from thee ; because he
loveth thee and thine house, because he is
well with thee ;

17 Then thou shalt take an awl, and
thrust it through his ear unto the door, and
he shall be thy servant for ever. And also
unto thy maid-servant thou shalt do like-
wise.

18 It shall not seem hard unto thee,
when thou sendest him away free from thee :
for he hath been worth *a double hired ser-
vant to thee, in serving thee six years : and
the Lord thy God shall bless thee in all that
thou doest.

19 IT "All the firstling males that come of
thy herd and of thy flock thou shalt sanctify
unto the Lord thy God : thou shalt do no
work with the firstling of thy bullock, nor
shear the firstling of thy sheep.

20 ''Thou shalt eat if before the Lord thy
God year by year in the place which the
Lord shall choose, thou and thy household.

21 yAnd if there be any blemish therein,
as if it he lame, or blind, or have any ill
blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the
Lord thy God.

22 Thou shalt eat it within thy gates :
Hhe unclean and the clean person shall eat it
alike, as the roe-buck, and as the hart.

CHAP. XVI.

] The feast of the passover, 9 of weehs, 13 of taber-
nacles. 16 Every male must offer, as fie is able, at
these three feasts. 18 Of judges and justice. 21 Groves
and images are forbidden.

OBSERVE the ■'month of Abib, and
keep the passover unto the Lord thy
God: for ''in the month of Abib the Lord
thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt
"by night.

2 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the pass-
over unto the Lord thy God, of the flock
and ''the herd, in the ^ place which the Lord
shall choose to place his name there.

3 f Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with
it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened
bread therewith, even the bread of affliction;
(for thou camest forth out of the land of
Egypt in haste :) that thou mayest remember
the day when thou camest forth out of the
land of Egypt, all the days of thy life.

4 sf And there shall be no leavened bread
seen with thee in all thy coasts seven days ;
''neither shall there any thing of the flesh,
which thou sacrificedst the first day at even,
remain all night until the morning.

5 Thou mayest not ||sacrifice the passover
within any of thy gates, which the Lord
thy God giveth thee :

6 But at the place which the Lord thy
God shall choose to place his name in, there
thou shalt sacrifice the passover 'at even, at
the going down of the sun, at the season that
thou camest forth out of Egypt.

7 And thou shalt "^ roast and eat it 'in the
place which the Lord thy God shall choose :
and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go
unto thy tents.

8 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened
bread: and ""on the seventh day shall he a
t solemn assembly to the Lord thy God :
thou shalt do no work therein.

9 If "Seven weeks shalt thou number unto
thee : begin to number the seven weeks from
such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle
to the corn.

10 And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks
unto the Lord thy God with || a tribute of
a free-will-oflfering of thine hand, which thou
shalt give unto the LORD thy God, ° accord-
ing as the Lord thy God hath blessed thee :
