LEVITICUS - Chapter 19

1 - And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 - Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.
3 - Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.
4 - Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the LORD your God.
5 - And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD, ye shall offer it at your own will.
6 - It shall 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 cut off from among his people.
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.
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.
11 - Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.
12 - And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
13 - Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.
14 - Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the LORD.
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 neighbour.
16 - Thou shalt 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 shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.
18 - Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.
19 - Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou 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 lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to an 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, unto 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 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 uncircumcised: three 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 holy to praise the LORD withal.
25 - And in the fifth year shall ye eat of the fruit thereof, that it may yield unto you the increase thereof: I am the LORD your God.
26 - Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor observe times.
27 - Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.
28 - Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.
29 - Do not prostitute 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 keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.
31 - Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
32 - Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD.
33 - And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.
34 - But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto 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 God.
35 - Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.
36 - Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.
37 - Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the LORD.
