Levítico 19

1 And the Lorde spake vnto Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God [am] holy.

3 Yee shall feare euery man his mother and his father, and shall keepe my Sabbaths: for I am the Lord your God.

4 Ye shall not turne vnto idoles, nor make you molten gods: I am the Lord your God.

5 And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD, ye shall offer it at your own will.

6 It shall be eaten the day yee offer it, or on the morowe: and that which remaineth vntill the third day, shalbe burnt in the fire.

7 And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it [is] abominable; it shall not be accepted.

8 Therefore he that eateth it, shal beare his iniquitie, because he hath defiled the halowed thing of the Lorde, and that person shalbe cut off from his people.

9 When yee reape the haruest of your land, ye shal not reape euery corner of your field, neither shalt thou gather the glainings of thy haruest.

10 Thou shalt not gather the grapes of thy vineyarde cleane, neyther gather euery grape of thy vineyarde, but thou shalt leaue them for the poore and for the straunger: I am the Lorde your God.

11 Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.

12 Also yee shall not sweare by my name falsely, neither shalt thou defile the name of thy God: I am the Lord.

13 Thou shalt not do thy neighbour wrong, neither rob him. The workemans hire shal not abide with thee vntil the morning.

14 Thou shalt not curse the deafe, neither put a stumbling blocke before the blinde, but shalt feare thy God: I am the Lord.

15 Ye shall not doe vniustly in iudgement. Thou shalt not fauour the person of the poore, nor honour the person of the mightie, but thou shalt iudge thy neighbour iustly.

16 Thou shalt not go up and down [as] a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I [am] the LORD.

17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart, but thou shalt plainely rebuke thy neighbour, and suffer him not to sinne.

18 Thou shalt not auenge, nor be mindful of wrong against ye childre of thy people, but shalt loue thy neighbour as thy selfe: I am the Lord.

19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.

20 Whosoeuer also lyeth and medleth with a woman that is a bonde mayde, affianced to a husbande, and not redeemed, nor freedome giuen her, she shalbe scourged, but they shall not die, because she is not made free.

21 And he shall bring for his trespasse offring vnto the Lorde, at the doore of the Tabernacle of the Congregation, a ramme for a trespasse offering.

22 Then the Priest shall make an atonement for him with the ramme of the trespasse offering before the Lorde, concerning his sinne which he hath done, and pardon shalbe giuen him for his sinne which he hath committed.

23 And 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 uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it shall not be eaten of.

24 But in the fourth yere all the fruite thereof shalbe holy to the praise of the Lorde.

25 And in the fifth yeere shall ye eate of the fruite of it that it may yeelde to you the encrease thereof: I am the Lorde your God.

26 Ye shall not eat [any thing] with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor observe times.

27 Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.

28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I [am] the LORD.

29 Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.

30 Ye shall keepe my Sabbaths and reuerence my Sanctuarie: I am the Lorde.

31 Ye shall not regarde them that worke with spirites, neither soothsayers: ye shall not seeke to them to be defiled by them: I am the Lorde your God.

32 Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I [am] the LORD.

33 And if a stranger soiourne with thee in your lande, ye shall not vexe him.

34 But the stranger that dwelleth with you, shalbe as one of your selues, and thou shalt loue him as thy selfe: for ye were strangers in the lad of Egypt: I am the Lorde your God.

35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.

36 Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I [am] the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

37 Therefore shall ye obserue all mine ordinances, and all my iudgements, and doe them: I am the Lorde.
