Leviticus 19 (asv)

Leviticus 19 (asv)

19:1And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, 19:2Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy; for I Jehovah your God am holy. 19:3Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father; and ye shall keep my sabbaths: I am Jehovah your God. 19:4Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am Jehovah your God.

19:5And when ye offer a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto Jehovah, ye shall offer it that ye may be accepted.19:6It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if aught remain until the third day, it shall be burnt with fire. 19:7And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is an abomination; it shall not be accepted: 19:8but every one that eateth it shall bear his iniquity, because he hath profaned the holy thing of Jehovah: and that soul shall be cut off from his people.

19:9And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleaning of thy harvest. 19:10And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather the fallen fruit of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am Jehovah your God.

19:11Ye shall not steal; neither shall ye deal falsely, nor lie one to another. 19:12And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, and profane the name of thy God: I am Jehovah.

19:13Thou shalt not oppress thy neighbor, nor rob him: the wages of a hired servant shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. 19:14Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind; but thou shalt fear thy God: I am Jehovah.

19:15Ye 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 neighbor.19:16Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbor: I am Jehovah.

19:17Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thy heart: thou shalt surely rebuke thy neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. 19:18Thou shalt not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people; but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am Jehovah.

19:19Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with two kinds of seed: neither shall there come upon thee a garment of two kinds of stuff mingled together. 19:20And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to a husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; they shall be punished; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free. 19:21And he shall bring his trespass-offering unto Jehovah, unto the door of the tent of meeting, even a ram for a trespass-offering. 19:22And the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass-offering before Jehovah for his sin which he hath sinned: and the sin which he hath sinned shall be forgiven him. 19:23And 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 their uncircumcision: three years shall they be as uncircumcised unto you; it shall not be eaten. 19:24But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy, for giving praise unto Jehovah. 19:25And in the fifth year shall ye eat of the fruit thereof, that it may yield unto you the increase thereof: I am Jehovah your God.

19:26Ye shall not eat anything with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantments, nor practise augury. 19:27Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard. 19:28Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am Jehovah.

19:29Profane not thy daughter, to make her a harlot; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness. 19:30Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary; I am Jehovah.

19:31Turn ye not unto them that have familiar spirits, nor unto the wizards; seek them not out, to be defiled by them: I am Jehovah your God.

19:32Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of the old man, and thou shalt fear thy God: I am Jehovah.

19:33And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not do him wrong. 19:34The stranger that sojourneth with you shall be unto you as the home-born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were sojourners in the land of Egypt: I am Jehovah your God.

19:35Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in measures of length, of weight, or of quantity. 19:36Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. 19:37And ye shall observe all my statutes, and all mine ordinances, and do them: I am Jehovah.
