Leviticus 19

LEB(i) 1 Then* Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "Speak to all the community of the Israelites,* and say to them, 'You* must be holy, because I, Yahweh your* God, am holy. 3 Each of you must revere your mother* and your father,* and you* must keep my Sabbaths; I am Yahweh your* God. 4 You* must not turn to idols, and you* must not make for yourselves gods of cast metal; I am Yahweh your* God. 5 " 'And when you* sacrifice a sacrifice of fellowship offerings to Yahweh, you* must sacrifice it for your* acceptance. 6 It must be eaten on the day of your* sacrifice and the next day; but* the remainder must be burned up in the fire by the third day. 7 And if it is indeed eaten on the third day, it is unclean meat; it shall not be regarded as accepted. 8 And the one who eats it shall bear his guilt, because he has profaned Yahweh's holiness, and that person shall be cut off from his people. 9 " 'And at your* reaping the harvest of your* land you* must not finish reaping the edge of your* field, and you* must not glean the remnants of your* harvest. 10 And you* must not glean your* vineyard, and you* must not gather your* vineyard's fallen grapes; you* must leave them behind for the needy and for the alien; I am Yahweh your* God. 11 " 'You* shall not steal, and you* shall not deceive, and you* shall not lie to one another;* 12 and you* shall not swear falsely* in my name, and so one of you* profane* the name of your* God; I am Yahweh. 13 " 'You* shall not exploit your* neighbor, and you* shall not rob him; a hired worker's wage you* shall not withhold* overnight until morning. 14 You* shall not curse the deaf, and you* shall not put a stumbling block before* a blind person, but* you* shall revere your* God; I am Yahweh. 15 " 'You* shall not do injustice in judgment; you* shall not show partiality to the powerless;* you* shall not give preference to the powerful;* you* shall judge your* fellow citizen with justice. 16 You* shall not go about with slander among your* people; you* shall not endanger your* neighbor's life;* I am Yahweh. 17 " 'You* shall not hate your* brother in your* heart; you* shall surely rebuke your* fellow citizen, so that you* do not incur sin along with* him. 18 You* shall not seek vengeance, and you* shall not harbor a grudge against your* fellow citizens;* and you* shall love your* neighbor like yourself; * I am Yahweh. 19 " 'You* must keep my statutes: as for your* domestic animals, you* shall not cause two differing kinds to breed; as for your* field, you* shall not sow two differing kinds of seed; and, a garment of two differing kinds of woven material should not be worn on you.* 20 " 'And when a man lies with a woman and there is an emission of semen and she is a female slave promised to a man, but* she indeed has not been ransomed or freedom has not be given to her, there shall be an obligation to compensate; they shall not be put to death, because she has not been freed. 21 And he shall bring his guilt offering to Yahweh at the tent of assembly's entrance: a ram for a guilt offering. 22 And the priest shall make atonement for him before* Yahweh with the ram of the guilt offering for his sin that he committed,* and so his sin that he committed* shall be forgiven him. 23 " 'And when you* have come into the land and you* plant any tree for* food, you* shall regard its fruit as unharvestable;* for three years it shall be forbidden for you; * it shall not be eaten. 24 But* in the fourth year all its fruit shall be holy, offerings of praise for Yahweh. 25 And in the fifth year you* shall eat its fruit to increase its yield for you; * I am Yahweh your* God. 26 " 'You* must not eat anything with the blood; you* shall not practice divination, nor shall you* interpret signs. 27 You* shall not round off the corner hair of your* head, and you* shall not trim the corner of your* beard. 28 And you* shall not make a slash in your* body for a dead person, nor shall you* make on yourselves a tattoo's mark; I am Yahweh. 29 " 'You* shall not profane your* daughter by making her a prostitute, lest the land be prostituted and the land fill up with depravity.* 30 You* shall keep my Sabbaths, and you* shall revere my sanctuary; I am Yahweh. 31 " 'You* shall not turn to the mediums and to the soothsayers; you* shall not seek them to become unclean with them; I am Yahweh your* God. 32 " 'Before* old age you* shall get up, and you* shall show respect for an old person; and you* shall revere your God; I am Yahweh. 33 " 'And when an alien dwells with you* in your* land, you* shall not oppress him. 34 The alien who is dwelling with you* shall be like a native among you,* and you* shall love him like yourself, * because you* were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am Yahweh your* God. 35 " 'You* shall not commit injustice in regulation, in measurement, in weight, or* volume. 36 You* must have honest balances, honest weights, an honest ephah, and an honest hin; I am Yahweh your* God who brought you* out from the land of Egypt. 37 " 'Thus you* shall keep all my statutes and all my regulations, and you* shall do them; I am Yahweh.'"
