Leviticus Part 2
Leviticus 21:1 ¶And the LORD said
unto Moses, Speak unto the priests the sons of Aaron, and say unto them,
There shall none be defiled for the dead among his people:
2 But for his kin, that is near unto him, that is, for his mother, and for
his father, and for his son, and for his daughter, and for his brother,
3 And for his sister a virgin, that is nigh unto him, which hath had no
husband; for her may he be defiled.
4 But he shall not defile himself, being a chief man among his people, to
5 They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off
the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
6 They shall be holy unto their God, and not profane the name of their God:
for the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and the bread of their God, they
do offer: therefore they shall be holy.
7 They shall not take a wife that is a whore, or profane; neither shall they
take a woman put away from her husband: for he is holy unto his God.
8 Thou shalt sanctify him therefore; for he offereth the bread of thy God:
he shall be holy unto thee: for I the LORD, which sanctify you, am holy.
9 And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the
whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire.
10 ¶And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the
anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments,
shall not uncover his head, nor rend his clothes;
11 Neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself for his
father, or for his mother;
12 Neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of
his God; for the crown of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am the
13 And he shall take a wife in her virginity.
14 A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or an harlot, these shall he
not take: but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife.
15 Neither shall he profane his seed among his people: for I the LORD do
16 ¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
17 Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their
generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread
of his God.
18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a
blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
19 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
20 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be
scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;
21 No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come
nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he
shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.
22 He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the
23 Only he shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar,
because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for I the
LORD do sanctify them.
24 And Moses told it unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children
Leviticus 22:1 ¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the
holy things of the children of Israel, and that they profane not my holy
name in those things which they hallow unto me: I am the LORD.
3 Say unto them, Whosoever he be of all your seed among your generations,
that goeth unto the holy things, which the children of Israel hallow unto
the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from
my presence: I am the LORD.
4 What man soever of the seed of Aaron is a leper, or hath a running issue;
he shall not eat of the holy things, until he be clean. And whoso toucheth
any thing that is unclean by the dead, or a man whose seed goeth from him;
5 Or whosoever toucheth any creeping thing, whereby he may be made unclean,
or a man of whom he may take uncleanness, whatsoever uncleanness he hath;
6 The soul which hath touched any such shall be unclean until even, and
shall not eat of the holy things, unless he wash his flesh with water.
7 And when the sun is down, he shall be clean, and shall afterward eat of
the holy things; because it is his food.
8 That which dieth of itself, or is torn with beasts, he shall not eat to
defile himself therewith: I am the LORD.
9 They shall therefore keep mine ordinance, lest they bear sin for it, and
die therefore, if they profane it: I the LORD do sanctify them.
10 ¶There shall no stranger eat of the holy thing: a sojourner of the
priest, or an hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing.
11 But if the priest buy any soul with his money, he shall eat of it, and he
that is born in his house: they shall eat of his meat.
12 If the priest's daughter also be married unto a stranger, she may not eat
of an offering of the holy things.
13 But if the priest's daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no child,
and is returned unto her father's house, as in her youth, she shall eat of
her father's meat: but there shall no stranger eat thereof.
14 And if a man eat of the holy thing unwittingly, then he shall put the
fifth part thereof unto it, and shall give it unto the priest with the holy
15 And they shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel,
which they offer unto the LORD;
16 Or suffer them to bear the iniquity of trespass, when they eat their holy
things: for I the LORD do sanctify them.
17 ¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
18 Speak unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel,
and say unto them, Whatsoever he be of the house of Israel, or of the
strangers in Israel, that will offer his oblation for all his vows, and for
all his freewill offerings, which they will offer unto the LORD for a burnt
19 Ye shall offer at your own will a male without blemish, of the beeves, of
the sheep, or of the goats.
20 But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer: for it shall not
be acceptable for you.
21 And whosoever offereth a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD to
accomplish his vow, or a freewill offering in beeves or sheep, it shall be
perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein.
22 Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, ye
shall not offer these unto the LORD, nor make an offering by fire of them
upon the altar unto the LORD.
23 Either a bullock or a lamb that hath any thing superfluous or lacking in
his parts, that mayest thou offer for a freewill offering; but for a vow it
shall not be accepted.
24 Ye shall not offer unto the LORD that which is bruised, or crushed, or
broken, or cut; neither shall ye make any offering thereof in your land.
25 Neither from a stranger's hand shall ye offer the bread of your God of
any of these; because their corruption is in them, and blemishes be in them:
they shall not be accepted for you.
26 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
27 When a bullock, or a sheep, or a goat, is brought forth, then it shall be
seven days under the dam; and from the eighth day and thenceforth it shall
be accepted for an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
28 And whether it be cow or ewe, ye shall not kill it and her young both in
29 And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the LORD, offer
it at your own will.
30 On the same day it shall be eaten up; ye shall leave none of it until the
morrow: I am the LORD.
31 Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am the LORD.
32 Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the
children of Israel: I am the LORD which hallow you,
33 That brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD.
Leviticus 23:1 ¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the
feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even
these are my feasts.
3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest,
an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the
LORD in all your dwellings.
4 ¶These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall
proclaim in their seasons.
5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S passover.
6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened
bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.
7 In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile
8 But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven days: in
the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
9 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come
into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof,
then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the
11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on
the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.
12 And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without
blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the LORD.
13 And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour
mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the LORD for a sweet savour:
and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin.
14 And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until
the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: it shall be
a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
15 ¶And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the
day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be
16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty
days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD.
17 Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth
deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven; they
are the firstfruits unto the LORD.
18 And ye shall offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of the
first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be for a burnt
offering unto the LORD, with their meat offering, and their drink offerings,
even an offering made by fire, of sweet savour unto the LORD.
19 Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and two
lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings.
20 And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits for a
wave offering before the LORD, with the two lambs: they shall be holy to the
LORD for the priest.
21 And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy
convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a
statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.
22 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean
riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou
gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and
to the stranger: I am the LORD your God.
23 ¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the
first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of
trumpets, an holy convocation.
25 Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made
by fire unto the LORD.
26 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of
atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict
your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
28 And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement,
to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.
29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day,
he shall be cut off from among his people.
30 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same
soul will I destroy from among his people.
31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout
your generations in all your dwellings.
32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls:
in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye
celebrate your sabbath.
33 ¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this
seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the
35 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile
36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the
eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an
offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall
do no servile work therein.
37 These are the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy
convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, a burnt
offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing
upon his day:
38 Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and beside all
your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the
39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in
the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on
the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.
40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees,
branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the
brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.
41 And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It
shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in
the seventh month.
42 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall
dwell in booths:
43 That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to
dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD
44 And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the LORD.
Leviticus 24:1 ¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure oil olive
beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually.
3 Without the vail of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the congregation,
shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning before the LORD
continually: it shall be a statute for ever in your generations.
4 He shall order the lamps upon the pure candlestick before the LORD
5 And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth
deals shall be in one cake.
6 And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table
before the LORD.
7 And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the
bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
8 Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD continually, being
taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant.
9 And it shall be Aaron's and his sons'; and they shall eat it in the holy
place: for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the LORD made by
fire by a perpetual statute.
10 ¶And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went
out among the children of Israel: and this son of the Israelitish woman and
a man of Israel strove together in the camp;
11 And the Israelitish woman's son blasphemed the name of the LORD, and
cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother's name was
Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:)
12 And they put him in ward, that the mind of the LORD might be shewed them.
13 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
14 Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that heard
him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.
15 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Whosoever
curseth his God shall bear his sin.
16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to
death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the
stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of
the LORD, shall be put to death.
17 And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death.
18 And he that killeth a beast shall make it good; beast for beast.
19 And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbour; as he hath done, so shall
it be done to him;
20 Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a
blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again.
21 And he that killeth a beast, he shall restore it: and he that killeth a
man, he shall be put to death.
22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of
your own country: for I am the LORD your God.
23 And Moses spake to the children of Israel, that they should bring forth
him that had cursed out of the camp, and stone him with stones. And the
children of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses.
Leviticus 25:1 ¶And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into
the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD.
3 Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy
vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;
4 But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a
sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy
5 That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap,
neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed: for it is a year of rest
unto the land.
6 And the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you; for thee, and for thy
servant, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for thy stranger
that sojourneth with thee,
7 And for thy cattle, and for the beast that are in thy land, shall all the
increase thereof be meat.
8 ¶And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times
seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee
forty and nine years.
9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day
of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet
sound throughout all your land.
10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout
all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto
you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return
every man unto his family.
11 A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither
reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy
12 For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the
increase thereof out of the field.
13 In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession.
14 And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy
neighbour's hand, ye shall not oppress one another:
15 According to the number of years after the jubile thou shalt buy of thy
neighbour, and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall
sell unto thee:
16 According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price
thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price
of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits doth he sell
17 Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God:
for I am the LORD your God.
18 Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them;
and ye shall dwell in the land in safety.
19 And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell
therein in safety.
20 And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall
not sow, nor gather in our increase:
21 Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall
bring forth fruit for three years.
22 And ye shall sow the eighth year, and eat yet of old fruit until the
ninth year; until her fruits come in ye shall eat of the old store.
23 ¶The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are
strangers and sojourners with me.
24 And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for
25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his possession,
and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his
26 And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem it;
27 Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the
overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his
28 But if he be not able to restore it to him, then that which is sold shall
remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of jubile: and
in the jubile it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession.
29 And if a man sell a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may redeem
it within a whole year after it is sold; within a full year may he redeem
30 And if it be not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house
that is in the walled city shall be established for ever to him that bought
it throughout his generations: it shall not go out in the jubile.
31 But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them shall
be counted as the fields of the country: they may be redeemed, and they
shall go out in the jubile.
32 Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites, and the houses of the cities
of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time.
33 And if a man purchase of the Levites, then the house that was sold, and
the city of his possession, shall go out in the year of jubile: for the
houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the children
34 But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is
their perpetual possession.
35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then
thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that
he may live with thee.
36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy
brother may live with thee.
37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals
38 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt,
to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.
39 ¶And if thy brother that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor, and be sold unto
thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a bondservant:
40 But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with thee, and
shall serve thee unto the year of jubile:
41 And then shall he depart from thee, both he and his children with him,
and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his fathers
shall he return.
42 For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the land of Egypt:
they shall not be sold as bondmen.
43 Thou shalt not rule over him with rigour; but shalt fear thy God.
44 Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of
the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and
45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of
them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat
in your land: and they shall be your possession.
46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to
inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over
your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another
47 And if a sojourner or stranger wax rich by thee, and thy brother that
dwelleth by him wax poor, and sell himself unto the stranger or sojourner by
thee, or to the stock of the stranger's family:
48 After that he is sold he may be redeemed again; one of his brethren may
49 Either his uncle, or his uncle's son, may redeem him, or any that is nigh
of kin unto him of his family may redeem him; or if he be able, he may
50 And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he was
sold to him unto the year of jubile: and the price of his sale shall be
according unto the number of years, according to the time of an hired
servant shall it be with him.
51 If there be yet many years behind, according unto them he shall give
again the price of his redemption out of the money that he was bought for.
52 And if there remain but few years unto the year of jubile, then he shall
count with him, and according unto his years shall he give him again the
price of his redemption.
53 And as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him: and the other shall
not rule with rigour over him in thy sight.
54 And if he be not redeemed in these years, then he shall go out in the
year of jubile, both he, and his children with him.
55 For unto me the children of Israel are servants; they are my servants
whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 26:1 ¶Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear
you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your
land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.
2 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.
3 If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;
4 Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her
increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
5 And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall
reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and
dwell in your land safely.
6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall
make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall
the sword go through your land.
7 And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the
8 And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put
ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.
9 For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you,
and establish my covenant with you.
10 And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because of the new.
11 And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you.
12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my
13 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt,
that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your
yoke, and made you go upright.
14 ¶But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these
15 And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments,
so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:
16 I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror,
consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause
sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall
17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your
enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when
none pursueth you.
18 And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish
you seven times more for your sins.
19 And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as
iron, and your earth as brass:
20 And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield
her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.
21 And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will
bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your
children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your high
ways shall be desolate.
23 And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk
contrary unto me;
24 Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven
times for your sins.
25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my
covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send
the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the
26 And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your
bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight:
and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.
27 And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto
28 Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will
chastise you seven times for your sins.
29 And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters
shall ye eat.
30 And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast
your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.
31 And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto
desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.
32 And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell
therein shall be astonished at it.
33 And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after
you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.
34 Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and
ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her
35 As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in
your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.
36 And upon them that are left alive of you I will send a faintness into
their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf
shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they
shall fall when none pursueth.
37 And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a sword, when
none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies.
38 And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of your enemies shall
eat you up.
39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your
enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine
away with them.
40 ¶If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers,
with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they
have walked contrary unto me;
41 And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them
into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be
humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
42 Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with
Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will
remember the land.
43 The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while
she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of
their iniquity: because, even because they despised my judgments, and
because their soul abhorred my statutes.
44 And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will
not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and
to break my covenant with them: for I am the LORD their God.
45 But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom
I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I
might be their God: I am the LORD.
46 These are the statutes and judgments and laws, which the LORD made
between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.
Leviticus 27:1 ¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When a man shall
make a singular vow, the persons shall be for the LORD by thy estimation.
3 And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto
sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after
the shekel of the sanctuary.
4 And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.
5 And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy
estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten
6 And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy
estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female
thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver.
7 And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy
estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
8 But if he be poorer than thy estimation, then he shall present himself
before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according to his ability
that vowed shall the priest value him.
9 And if it be a beast, whereof men bring an offering unto the LORD, all
that any man giveth of such unto the LORD shall be holy.
10 He shall not alter it, nor change it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a
good: and if he shall at all change beast for beast, then it and the
exchange thereof shall be holy.
11 And if it be any unclean beast, of which they do not offer a sacrifice
unto the LORD, then he shall present the beast before the priest:
12 And the priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad: as thou valuest
it, who art the priest, so shall it be.
13 But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a fifth part thereof
unto thy estimation.
14 ¶And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy unto the LORD, then
the priest shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad: as the priest shall
estimate it, so shall it stand.
15 And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house, then he shall add the
fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it, and it shall be his.
16 And if a man shall sanctify unto the LORD some part of a field of his
possession, then thy estimation shall be according to the seed thereof: an
homer of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver.
17 If he sanctify his field from the year of jubile, according to thy
estimation it shall stand.
18 But if he sanctify his field after the jubile, then the priest shall
reckon unto him the money according to the years that remain, even unto the
year of the jubile, and it shall be abated from thy estimation.
19 And if he that sanctified the field will in any wise redeem it, then he
shall add the fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it, and it
shall be assured to him.
20 And if he will not redeem the field, or if he have sold the field to
another man, it shall not be redeemed any more.
21 But the field, when it goeth out in the jubile, shall be holy unto the
LORD, as a field devoted; the possession thereof shall be the priest's.
22 And if a man sanctify unto the LORD a field which he hath bought, which
is not of the fields of his possession;
23 Then the priest shall reckon unto him the worth of thy estimation, even
unto the year of the jubile: and he shall give thine estimation in that day,
as a holy thing unto the LORD.
24 In the year of the jubile the field shall return unto him of whom it was
bought, even to him to whom the possession of the land did belong.
25 And all thy estimations shall be according to the shekel of the
sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.
26 ¶Only the firstling of the beasts, which should be the LORD'S firstling,
no man shall sanctify it; whether it be ox, or sheep: it is the LORD'S.
27 And if it be of an unclean beast, then he shall redeem it according to
thine estimation, and shall add a fifth part of it thereto: or if it be not
redeemed, then it shall be sold according to thy estimation.
28 Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto the LORD
of all that he hath, both of man and beast, and of the field of his
possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto
29 None devoted, which shall be devoted of men, shall be redeemed; but shall
surely be put to death.
30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the
fruit of the tree, is the LORD'S: it is holy unto the LORD.
31 And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto
the fifth part thereof.
32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever
passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.
33 He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change
it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be
holy; it shall not be redeemed.
34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the
children of Israel in mount Sinai.
