Leviticus, Chapter 19

19:1 And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
19:2 Speak to all the congregation of the sons of Israel, and say to them, You+ will be holy; for I, Yahweh your+ God, am holy.
19:3 You+ will fear every man his mother, and his father; and you+ will keep my Sabbaths: I am Yahweh your+ God.
19:4 Don't turn yourselves to idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am Yahweh your+ God.
19:5 And when you+ offer a sacrifice of peace-offerings to Yahweh, you+ will offer it that you+ may be accepted.
19:6 It will be eaten the same day you+ offer it, and on the next day: and if anything remains until the third day, it will be burned with fire.
19:7 And if it is eaten at all on the third day, it is contaminated; it will not be accepted:
19:8 but everyone who eats it will bear his iniquity, because he has profaned the holy thing of Yahweh: and that soul will be cut off from his people.
19:9 And when you+ reap the harvest of your+ land, you will not wholly reap the corners of your field, neither will you gather the gleaning of your harvest.
19:10 And you will not glean your vineyard, neither will you gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard; you will leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am Yahweh your+ God.
19:11 You+ will not steal; neither will you+ deal falsely; nor lie; a man to his associate.
19:12 And you+ will not swear by my name falsely, and [thus] you profane the name of your God: I am Yahweh.
19:13 You will not oppress your fellow man, nor rob him: the wages of a hired worker will not remain with you all night until the morning.
19:14 You will not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling block before the blind; but you will fear your God: I am Yahweh.
19:15 You+ will do no unrighteousness in judgment: you will not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty; but in righteousness you will judge your associate.
19:16 You will not go up and down as a talebearer among your relatives: you will not stand against the blood of your fellow man: I am Yahweh.
19:17 You will not hate your brother in your heart: you will surely rebuke your associate, and not bear sin because of him.
19:18 You will not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people; but you will love your fellow man as yourself: I am Yahweh.
19:19 You+ will keep my statutes. You will not let your cattle gender with a diverse kind: you will not sow your field with two kinds of seed: neither will there come upon you a garment of two kinds of stuff mingled together.
19:20 And whoever has any sex with a woman, who is a female slave, betrothed to a husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; they will be punished; they will not be put to death, because she was not free.
19:21 And he will bring his trespass-offering to Yahweh, to the door of the tent of meeting, even a ram for a trespass-offering.
19:22 And the priest will make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass-offering before Yahweh for his sin which he has sinned: and the sin which he has sinned will be forgiven him.
19:23 And when you+ will come into the land, and will have planted all manner of trees for food, then you+ will count its fruit as their uncircumcision: three years they will be as uncircumcised to you+; it will not be eaten.
19:24 But in the fourth year all its fruit will be holy, for inauguration to Yahweh.
19:25 And in the fifth year you+ will eat of its fruit, that it may yield to you+ its increase: I am Yahweh your+ God.
19:26 You+ will not eat anything with the blood: neither will you+ use magic, nor interpret omens.
19:27 You+ will not round the corners of your+ heads, neither will you mar the corners of your beard.
19:28 You+ will not make on your+ flesh any cuttings for a soul, nor make on you+ any tattoo marks: I am Yahweh.
19:29 Don't profane your daughter, to make her a prostitute; lest the land fall to prostitution, and the land become full of wickedness.
19:30 You+ will keep my Sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary; I am Yahweh.
19:31 Do+ not turn to the spiritists or to the wizards; do not seek them out, to be defiled by them: I am Yahweh your+ God.
19:32 You will rise up before the gray head, and honor the face of the old man, and you will fear your God: I am Yahweh.
19:33 And if a stranger sojourns with you in your+ land, you+ will not do him wrong.
19:34 The stranger who sojourns with you+ will be to you+ as the home-born among you+, and you will love him as yourself; for you+ were sojourners in the land of Egypt: I am Yahweh your+ God.
19:35 You+ will do no unrighteousness in judgment, in measures of length, of weight, or of quantity.
19:36 Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, you+ will have: I am Yahweh your+ God, who brought you+ out of the land of Egypt.
19:37 And you+ will observe all my statutes, and all my ordinances, and do them: I am Yahweh.
