Leviticus 19

VIN(i) 1 the LORD spoke to Moses: 2 Speak to the assembly of the sons of Israel, and say to them, Ye shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy. 3 Each of you must revere your mother and your father, and you must keep my Sabbaths; I am the LORD your God. 4 "'Do not turn to idols, nor make molten gods for yourselves. I am the LORD your God. 5 "'When you bring a peace offering to the LORD, sacrifice it properly so that you will be accepted. 6 It shall be eaten the same day you offer it, and on the next day. If anything remains until the third day, it shall be burned with fire. 7 "'If you eat any of it on the third day, it is repulsive and will not be accepted. 8 "'Those who eat it will be punished because they have dishonored what is holy to the LORD. They must be excluded from the people. 9 "'When you reap the harvest of your land, you should not reap to the very corners of your field. You should not gather the gleanings of your harvest. 10 "'Do not glean your vineyard. Do not gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard. Leave them for the needy and for the stranger. I am the LORD your God. 11 "'Do not steal. Do not deal falsely. Do not lie to one another. 12 "'Do not swear falsely by my name, so as to profane the name of your God. I am the LORD. 13 "'Do not oppress your neighbor and do not rob him. Do not fail to pay your workers at the end of each day. 14 You shall not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling block before the blind, but shall fear your God: I am the LORD. 15 "'Do no injustice in judgment. Do not be partial to the poor nor defer to the great. Judge your neighbor fairly. 16 You shall not go about with slander among your people; you shall not endanger your neighbor's life; I am the LORD. 17 You shall not hate your brother in your heart: you shall surely rebuke your neighbor, so you shall not bear sin on his account. 18 "'Do not seek revenge. Never hold a grudge against any of your people. Instead, love your neighbor as you love yourself. I am the LORD. 19 "'Obey my laws. Never crossbreed different kinds of animals. Do not plant two kinds of crops in your field. Never wear clothes made from two kinds of material. 20 "'If a man lies carnally with a woman who is a slave girl, pledged to be married to another man, and not ransomed, or given her freedom; they shall be punished. They shall not be put to death, because she was not free. 21 And he brought his trespass to the LORD, to the door of the tent of appointment, a ram of trespass. 22 And the priest shall pray for him: and for his sin before the Lord: and he shall have mercy on him, and the sin shall be forgiven. 23 “'When you come into the land, and have planted all kinds of trees for food, then you shall count their fruit as forbidden. For three years it shall be forbidden to you. It shall not be eaten. 24 But in the fourth year all its fruit shall be holy, offerings of praise for the LORD. 25 And in the fifth year you shall eat its fruit, that it may yield to you its increase; I am the LORD your God. 26 "'You shall not eat any meat with the blood still in it; neither shall you practice divination, nor practice sorcery. 27 “'You shall not cut the hair on the sides of your head or clip off the edge of your beard. 28 "'You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you. I am the LORD. 29 "'Do not dishonor your daughter by making her a prostitute, or the country will turn to prostitution and be filled with people who are perverted. 30 Keep ye my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary. I am the Lord. 31 Regard not mediums, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God. 32 You shall rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of the old man, and fear your God: I am the LORD. 33 And when an alien lives with you in your land, you shall not oppress him; 34 as the native among you, so shall be the alien who is staying with you; and you shall love him as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the LORD your God. 35 Work no wickedness in judgment, in measurement, in weight, or in quantity. 36 "'Use honest scales, honest weights, and honest measures. I am the LORD your God who brought you out of Egypt. 37 "'Obey all my laws and all my rules, and live by them. I am the LORD!'"
