| 1 Thou shalt not take up a false report: put not thy hand with the
wicked to be an unrighteous witness. 2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude
to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to turn aside after a
multitude to wrest justice: 3 neither shalt thou favor a poor man
in his cause.|
4 If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his ass going astray, thou shalt surely
bring it back to him again. 5 If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee
lying under his burden, thou shalt forbear to leave him, thou shalt surely
release it with him.
6 Thou shalt not wrest the justice due to thy poor in his cause.
7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay
thou not: for I will not justify the wicked. 8 And thou shalt take no
bribe: for a bribe blindeth them that have sight, and perverteth the words of
the righteous. 9 And a sojourner shalt thou not oppress: for ye know the
heart of a sojourner, seeing ye were sojourners in the land of Egypt.
10 And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the increase
thereof: 11 but the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie fallow;
that the poor of thy people may eat: and what they leave the beast of the
field shall eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard,
and with thy oliveyard. 12 Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on
the seventh day thou shalt rest; that thine ox and thine ass may have rest,
and the son of thy handmaid, and the sojourner, may be refreshed. 13 And
in all things that I have said unto you take ye heed: and make no mention of
the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.
14 Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year. 15 The
feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep: seven days thou shalt eat
unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, at the time appointed in the month
Abib (for in it thou camest out from Egypt); and none shall appear before me
empty: 16 and the feast of harvest, the first-fruits of thy labors, which
thou sowest in the field: and the feast of ingathering, at the end of the
year, when thou gatherest in thy labors out of the field. 17 Three times
in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord Jehovah.
18 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread;
neither shall the fat of my feast remain all night until the morning.
19 The first of the first-fruits of thy ground thou shalt bring into the
house of Jehovah thy God. Thou shalt not boil a kid in it mother's milk.
20 Behold, I send an angel before thee, to keep thee by the way, and to
bring thee into the place which I have prepared. 21 Take ye heed before
him, and hearken unto his voice; provoke him not; for he will not pardon your
transgression: for my name is in him. 22 But if thou shalt indeed hearken
unto his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine
enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. 23 For mine angel shall
go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the
Perizzite, and the Canaanite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite: and I will cut
them off. 24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do
after their works; but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and break in pieces
their pillars. 25 And ye shall serve Jehovah your God, and he will bless
thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of
thee. 26 There shall none cast her young, nor be barren, in thy land: the
number of thy days I will fulfil. 27 I will send my terror before thee,
and will discomfit all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make
all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee. 28 And I will send the
hornet before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the
Hittite, from before thee. 29 I will not drive them out from before thee
in one year, lest the land become desolate, and the beasts of the field
multiply against thee. 30 By little and little I will drive them out from
before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land. 31 And I will
set thy border from the Red Sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and
from the wilderness unto the River: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the
land into your hand: and thou shalt drive them out before thee. 32 Thou
shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. 33 They shall not
dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me; for if thou serve
their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.
