Leviticus 19

19:1 And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, 19:2 Speake vnto all the Congregation of the children of Israel, and say vnto them, Ye shalbe holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. 19:3 Yee shall feare euery man his mother, and his father, and keepe my Sabbaths: I am the Lord your God. 19:4 Turne ye not vnto idoles, nor make to your selues molten gods: I am the Lord your God. 19:5 And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings vnto the Lord, ye shall offer it, at your owne will. 19:6 It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if ought remaine vntill the third day, it shalbe burnt in the fire. 19:7 And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted. 19:8 Therefore euery one that eateth it, shal beare his iniquitie, because he hath prophaned the halowed thing of the Lord; and that soule shalbe cut off from among his people. 19:9 And when ye reape the haruest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reape the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy haruest. 19:10 And thou shalt not gleane thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather euery grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leaue them for the poore and stranger: I am the Lord your God. 19:11 Ye shall not steale, neither deale falsly, neither lie one to another. 19:12 And ye shall not sweare by my Name falsly, neither shalt thou prophane the Name of thy God: I am the Lord. 19:13 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired, shal not abide with thee all night, vntill the morning. 19:14 Thou shalt not curse the deafe, nor put a stumbling blocke before the blind, but shalt feare thy God: I am the Lord. 19:15 Ye shall doe no vnrighteousnes in iudgement; thou shalt not respect the person of the poore, nor honour the person of the mightie: but in righteousnesse shalt thou iudge thy neighbour. 19:16 Thou shalt not goe vp and downe as a tale-bearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the Lord. 19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sinne vpon him. 19:18 Thou shalt not auenge nor beare any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt loue thy neighbor as thy selfe: I am the Lord. 19:19 Yee shall keepe my Statutes: Thou shalt not let thy cattell gender with a diuerse kinde: Thou shalt not sowe thy field with mingled seed: Neither shall a garment mingled of linnen and woollen come vpon thee. 19:20 And whosoeuer lieth carnally with a woman that is a bondmaid, she shall be scourged: they shall not be put to death, because she was not free: 19:21 And he shall bring his trespasse offering vnto the Lord, vnto the doore of the Tabernacle of the Congregation, euen a ramme for a trespasse offering. 19:22 And the Priest shall make an atonement for him with the ramme of the trespasse offering before the Lord for his sinne which hee hath done: and the sinne which he hath done shall bee forgiuen him. 19:23 And when yee shall come in to the land, and shall haue planted all maner of trees for food, then ye shall count the fruit therof as vncircumcised: three yeeres shall it be as vncircumcised vnto you: it shall not be eaten of. 19:24 But in the fourth yeere all the fruit thereof shall be holy to praise the Lord withall. 19:25 And in the fift yeere shall ye eate of the fruit thereof, that it may yeelde vnto you the increase thereof: I am the Lord your God. 19:26 Ye shall not eate any thing with the blood, neither shall ye vse inchantment, nor obserue times. 19:27 Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou marre the corners of thy beard. 19:28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any markes vpon you: I am the Lord. 19:29 Doe not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore, lest the land fall to whoredome, and the land become full of wickednesse. 19:30 Ye shall keepe my Sabbaths, and reuerence my Sanctuary: I am the Lord. 19:31 Regard not them that haue familiar spirits, neither seeke after Wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God. 19:32 Thou shalt rise vp before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and feare thy God: I am the Lord. 19:33 And if a stranger soiourne with thee in your land, yee shall not vexe him. 19:34 But the stranger that dwelleth with you, shalbe as one borne amongst you, and thou shalt loue him as thy selfe, for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. 19:35 Ye shall doe no vnrighteousnes in iudgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure. 19:36 Iust ballances, iust weights, a iust Ephah, and a iust Hin shall ye haue: I am the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt. 19:37 Therefore shall ye obserue all my Statutes, and all my Iudgements, and doe them: I am the Lord.
