BOOK 01 Genesis


01:001:001 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

01:001:002 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was
upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of
the waters.

01:001:003 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

01:001:004 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the
light from the darkness.

01:001:005 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called
Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

01:001:006 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the
waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

01:001:007 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were
under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and
it was so.

01:001:008 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the
morning were the second day.

01:001:009 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered
together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

01:001:010 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together
of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

01:001:011 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb
yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose
seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

01:001:012 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed
after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself,
after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

01:001:013 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

01:001:014 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the
heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and
for seasons, and for days, and years:

01:001:015 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to
give light upon the earth: and it was so.

01:001:016 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the
day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

01:001:017 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light
upon the earth,

01:001:018 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide
the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

01:001:019 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

01:001:020 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the
moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in
the open firmament of heaven.

01:001:021 And God created great whales, and every living creature that
moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and
every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

01:001:022 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and
fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

01:001:023 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

01:001:024 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature
after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after
his kind: and it was so.

01:001:025 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and
cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth
after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

01:001:026 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our
likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over
the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and
over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

01:001:027 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God
created he him; male and female created he them.

01:001:028 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful,
and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion
over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every
living thing that moveth upon the earth.

01:001:029 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing
seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the
which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

01:001:030 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the
air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is
life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

01:001:031 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was
very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

01:002:001 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the
host of them.

01:002:002 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

01:002:003 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because
that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

01:002:004 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth
when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and
the heavens,

01:002:005 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and
every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused
it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

01:002:006 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the
whole face of the ground.

01:002:007 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and
breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living
soul.

01:002:008 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there
he put the man whom he had formed.

01:002:009 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree
that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also
in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

01:002:010 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from
thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

01:002:011 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth
the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

01:002:012 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the
onyx stone.

01:002:013 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it
that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

01:002:014 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which
goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

01:002:015 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of
Eden to dress it and to keep it.

01:002:016 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of
the garden thou mayest freely eat:

01:002:017 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt
not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely
die.

01:002:018 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be
alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

01:002:019 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the
field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what
he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature,
that was the name thereof.

01:002:020 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the
air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found
an help meet for him.

01:002:021 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and
he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead
thereof;

01:002:022 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a
woman, and brought her unto the man.

01:002:023 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my
flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

01:002:024 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and
shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

01:002:025 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not
ashamed.

01:003:001 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field
which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God
said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

01:003:002 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit
of the trees of the garden:

01:003:003 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the
garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch
it, lest ye die.

01:003:004 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

01:003:005 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your
eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

01:003:006 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and
that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one
wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her
husband with her; and he did eat.

01:003:007 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that
they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves
aprons.

01:003:008 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the
garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from
the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

01:003:009 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where
art thou?

01:003:010 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was
afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

01:003:011 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou
eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

01:003:012 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me,
she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

01:003:013 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou
hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

01:003:014 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast
done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of
the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the
days of thy life:

01:003:015 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between
thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise
his heel.

01:003:016 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow
and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy
desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

01:003:017 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the
voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded
thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy
sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

01:003:018 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and
thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

01:003:019 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou
return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou
art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

01:003:020 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the
mother of all living.

01:003:021 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of
skins, and clothed them.

01:003:022 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of
us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take
also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

01:003:023 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of
Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

01:003:024 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the
garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to
keep the way of the tree of life.

01:004:001 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain,
and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

01:004:002 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of
sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

01:004:003 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of
the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

01:004:004 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and
of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his
offering:

01:004:005 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And
Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

01:004:006 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is
thy countenance fallen?

01:004:007 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou
doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his
desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

01:004:008 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass,
when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother,
and slew him.

01:004:009 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And
he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

01:004:010 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's
blood crieth unto me from the ground.

01:004:011 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her
mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;

01:004:012 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield
unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the
earth.

01:004:013 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I
can bear.

01:004:014 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the
earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a
vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that
findeth me shall slay me.

01:004:015 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain,
vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon
Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

01:004:016 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in
the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

01:004:017 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch:
and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name
of his son, Enoch.

01:004:018 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and
Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.

01:004:019 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was
Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.

01:004:020 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in
tents, and of such as have cattle.

01:004:021 And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all
such as handle the harp and organ.

01:004:022 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructor of every
artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.

01:004:023 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my
voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a
man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.

01:004:024 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and
sevenfold.

01:004:025 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called
his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead
of Abel, whom Cain slew.

01:004:026 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called
his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.

01:005:001 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that
God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;

01:005:002 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called
their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

01:005:003 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son
in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:

01:005:004 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight
hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:

01:005:005 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty
years: and he died.

01:005:006 And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:

01:005:007 And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven
years, and begat sons and daughters:

01:005:008 And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years:
and he died.

01:005:009 And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:

01:005:010 And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and
fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters:

01:005:011 And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years:
and he died.

01:005:012 And Cainan lived seventy years and begat Mahalaleel:

01:005:013 And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and
forty years, and begat sons and daughters:

01:005:014 And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years:
and he died.

01:005:015 And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:

01:005:016 And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and
thirty years, and begat sons and daughters:

01:005:017 And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and
five years: and he died.

01:005:018 And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat
Enoch:

01:005:019 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and
begat sons and daughters:

01:005:020 And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two
years: and he died.

01:005:021 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

01:005:022 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three
hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

01:005:023 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five
years:

01:005:024 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

01:005:025 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and
begat Lamech.

01:005:026 And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred
eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:

01:005:027 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and
nine years: and he died.

01:005:028 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a
son:

01:005:029 And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort
us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground
which the LORD hath cursed.

01:005:030 And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and
five years, and begat sons and daughters:

01:005:031 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and
seven years: and he died.

01:005:032 And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem,
Ham, and Japheth.

01:006:001 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face
of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

01:006:002 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were
fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

01:006:003 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with
man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and
twenty years.

01:006:004 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after
that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they
bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men
of renown.

01:006:005 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the
earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only
evil continually.

01:006:006 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth,
and it grieved him at his heart.

01:006:007 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created
from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing,
and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

01:006:008 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

01:006:009 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and
perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

01:006:010 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

01:006:011 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was
filled with violence.

01:006:012 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt;
for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

01:006:013 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before
me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I
will destroy them with the earth.

01:006:014 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the
ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

01:006:015 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The
length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty
cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

01:006:016 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt
thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side
thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

01:006:017 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the
earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under
heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

01:006:018 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt
come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives
with thee.

01:006:019 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort
shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall
be male and female.

01:006:020 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of
every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort
shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

01:006:021 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou
shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for
them.

01:006:022 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so
did he.

01:007:001 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into
the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

01:007:002 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the
male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male
and his female.

01:007:003 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female;
to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

01:007:004 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the
earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I
have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

01:007:005 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.

01:007:006 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters
was upon the earth.

01:007:007 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons'
wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.

01:007:008 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of
fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,

01:007:009 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male
and the female, as God had commanded Noah.

01:007:010 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the
flood were upon the earth.

01:007:011 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second
month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the
fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were
opened.

01:007:012 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

01:007:013 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and
Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his
sons with them, into the ark;

01:007:014 They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle
after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth
after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.

01:007:015 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all
flesh, wherein is the breath of life.

01:007:016 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh,
as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

01:007:017 And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters
increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.

01:007:018 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the
earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.

01:007:019 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all
the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.

01:007:020 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the
mountains were covered.

01:007:021 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl,
and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth
upon the earth, and every man:

01:007:022 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was
in the dry land, died.

01:007:023 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the
face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and
the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah
only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

01:007:024 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty
days.

01:008:001 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the
cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over
the earth, and the waters asswaged;

01:008:002 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were
stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

01:008:003 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and
after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

01:008:004 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth
day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

01:008:005 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month:
in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the
mountains seen.

01:008:006 And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah
opened the window of the ark which he had made:

01:008:007 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until
the waters were dried up from off the earth.

01:008:008 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were
abated from off the face of the ground;

01:008:009 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she
returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the
whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in
unto him into the ark.

01:008:010 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth
the dove out of the ark;

01:008:011 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her
mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were
abated from off the earth.

01:008:012 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove;
which returned not again unto him any more.

01:008:013 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in
the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up
from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and
looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.

01:008:014 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of
the month, was the earth dried.

01:008:015 And God spake unto Noah, saying,

01:008:016 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and
thy sons' wives with thee.

01:008:017 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee,
of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing
that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the
earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.

01:008:018 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his
sons' wives with him:

01:008:019 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and
whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of
the ark.

01:008:020 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every
clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the
altar.

01:008:021 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his
heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for
the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I
again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

01:008:022 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and
heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

01:009:001 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

01:009:002 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every
beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth
upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are
they delivered.

01:009:003 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as
the green herb have I given you all things.

01:009:004 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof,
shall ye not eat.

01:009:005 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the
hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the
hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.

01:009:006 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed:
for in the image of God made he man.

01:009:007 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly
in the earth, and multiply therein.

01:009:008 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

01:009:009 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with
your seed after you;

01:009:010 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl,
of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that
go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.

01:009:011 And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all
flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there
any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

01:009:012 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make
between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for
perpetual generations:

01:009:013 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of
a covenant between me and the earth.

01:009:014 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the
earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

01:009:015 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you
and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more
become a flood to destroy all flesh.

01:009:016 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it,
that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every
living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

01:009:017 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant,
which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the
earth.

01:009:018 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem,
and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.

01:009:019 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole
earth overspread.

01:009:020 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a
vineyard:

01:009:021 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was
uncovered within his tent.

01:009:022 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his
father, and told his two brethren without.

01:009:023 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both
their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their
father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's
nakedness.

01:009:024 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son
had done unto him.

01:009:025 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he
be unto his brethren.

01:009:026 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan
shall be his servant.

01:009:027 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of
Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

01:009:028 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.

01:009:029 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years:
and he died.

01:010:001 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham,
and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

01:010:002 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan,
and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

01:010:003 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

01:010:004 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and
Dodanim.

01:010:005 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their
lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their
nations.

01:010:006 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

01:010:007 And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and
Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.

01:010:008 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the
earth.

01:010:009 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said,
Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.

01:010:010 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and
Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

01:010:011 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and
the city Rehoboth, and Calah,

01:010:012 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great
city.

01:010:013 And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and
Naphtuhim,

01:010:014 And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,)
and Caphtorim.

01:010:015 And Canaan begat Sidon his first born, and Heth,

01:010:016 And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,

01:010:017 And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,

01:010:018 And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and
afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.

01:010:019 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou
comest to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest, unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and
Admah, and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.

01:010:020 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their
tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.

01:010:021 Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the
brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.

01:010:022 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and
Lud, and Aram.

01:010:023 And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

01:010:024 And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.

01:010:025 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg;
for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was
Joktan.

01:010:026 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and
Jerah,

01:010:027 And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,

01:010:028 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,

01:010:029 And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of
Joktan.

01:010:030 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar
a mount of the east.

01:010:031 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their
tongues, in their lands, after their nations.

01:010:032 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their
generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in
the earth after the flood.

01:011:001 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

01:011:002 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that
they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

01:011:003 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and
burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they
for morter.

01:011:004 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower,
whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be
scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

01:011:005 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which
the children of men builded.

01:011:006 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have
all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be
restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

01:011:007 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language,
that they may not understand one another's speech.

01:011:008 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face
of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

01:011:009 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD
did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did
the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

01:011:010 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years
old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:

01:011:011 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years,
and begat sons and daughters.

01:011:012 And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:

01:011:013 And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and
three years, and begat sons and daughters.

01:011:014 And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:

01:011:015 And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three
years, and begat sons and daughters.

01:011:016 And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:

01:011:017 And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty
years, and begat sons and daughters.

01:011:018 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:

01:011:019 And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine
years, and begat sons and daughters.

01:011:020 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:

01:011:021 And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven
years, and begat sons and daughters.

01:011:022 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:

01:011:023 And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and
begat sons and daughters.

01:011:024 And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:

01:011:025 And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen
years, and begat sons and daughters.

01:011:026 And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and
Haran.

01:011:027 Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram,
Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.

01:011:028 And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his
nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.

01:011:029 And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife
was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran,
the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.

01:011:030 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.

01:011:031 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his
son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they
went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of
Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

01:011:032 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and
Terah died in Haran.

01:012:001 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy
country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land
that I will shew thee:

01:012:002 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless
thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

01:012:003 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that
curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

01:012:004 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot
went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed
out of Haran.

01:012:005 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and
all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had
gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and
into the land of Canaan they came.

01:012:006 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem,
unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

01:012:007 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed
will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who
appeared unto him.

01:012:008 And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of
Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the
east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the
name of the LORD.

01:012:009 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.

01:012:010 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into
Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.

01:012:011 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into
Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou
art a fair woman to look upon:

01:012:012 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see
thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but
they will save thee alive.

01:012:013 Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well
with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.

01:012:014 And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt,
the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.

01:012:015 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before
Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.

01:012:016 And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep,
and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she
asses, and camels.

01:012:017 And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues
because of Sarai Abram's wife.

01:012:018 And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that thou
hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?

01:012:019 Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her
to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.

01:012:020 And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent
him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

01:013:001 And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all
that he had, and Lot with him, into the south.

01:013:002 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

01:013:003 And he went on his journeys from the south even to Bethel,
unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel
and Hai;

01:013:004 Unto the place of the altar, which he had make there at the
first: and there Abram called on the name of the LORD.

01:013:005 And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds,
and tents.

01:013:006 And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell
together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell
together.

01:013:007 And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle
and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite
dwelled then in the land.

01:013:008 And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee,
between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be
brethren.

01:013:009 Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray
thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the
right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.

01:013:010 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of
Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed
Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of
Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.

01:013:011 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed
east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.

01:013:012 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the
cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.

01:013:013 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD
exceedingly.

01:013:014 And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated
from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art
northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:

01:013:015 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it,
and to thy seed for ever.

01:013:016 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if
a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be
numbered.

01:013:017 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the
breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.

01:013:018 Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain
of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the LORD.

01:014:001 And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar,
Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of
nations;

01:014:002 That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha
king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim,
and the king of Bela, which is Zoar.

01:014:003 All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which
is the salt sea.

01:014:004 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth
year they rebelled.

01:014:005 And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings
that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the
Zuzims in Ham, and the Emins in Shaveh Kiriathaim,

01:014:006 And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto Elparan, which is
by the wilderness.

01:014:007 And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh,
and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that
dwelt in Hazezontamar.

01:014:008 And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of
Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king
of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale
of Siddim;

01:014:009 With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of
nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four
kings with five.

01:014:010 And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings
of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled
to the mountain.

01:014:011 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all
their victuals, and went their way.

01:014:012 And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom,
and his goods, and departed.

01:014:013 And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the
Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of
Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.

01:014:014 And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he
armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and
eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan.

01:014:015 And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by
night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left
hand of Damascus.

01:014:016 And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his
brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.

01:014:017 And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return
from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him,
at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale.

01:014:018 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine:
and he was the priest of the most high God.

01:014:019 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most
high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

01:014:020 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine
enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

01:014:021 And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons,
and take the goods to thyself.

01:014:022 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand
unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,

01:014:023 That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and
that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I
have made Abram rich:

01:014:024 Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the
portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them
take their portion.

01:015:001 After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a
vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding
great reward.

01:015:002 And Abram said, LORD God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go
childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?

01:015:003 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and,
lo, one born in my house is mine heir.

01:015:004 And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This
shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own
bowels shall be thine heir.

01:015:005 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward
heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said
unto him, So shall thy seed be.

01:015:006 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for
righteousness.

01:015:007 And he said unto him, I am the LORD that brought thee out of
Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.

01:015:008 And he said, LORD God, whereby shall I know that I shall
inherit it?

01:015:009 And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old,
and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a
turtledove, and a young pigeon.

01:015:010 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the
midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he
not.

01:015:011 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove
them away.

01:015:012 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon
Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.

01:015:013 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall
be a stranger in a land that is not their's, and shall serve them; and
they shall afflict them four hundred years;

01:015:014 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge:
and afterward shall they come out with great substance.

01:015:015 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be
buried in a good old age.

01:015:016 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again:
for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.

01:015:017 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was
dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between
those pieces.

01:015:018 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying,
Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the
great river, the river Euphrates:

01:015:019 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,

01:015:020 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,

01:015:021 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites,
and the Jebusites.

01:016:001 Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an
handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.

01:016:002 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath
restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be
that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of
Sarai.

01:016:003 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian,
after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to
her husband Abram to be his wife.

01:016:004 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she
saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.

01:016:005 And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have
given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I
was despised in her eyes: the LORD judge between me and thee.

01:016:006 But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thine hand;
do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she
fled from her face.

01:016:007 And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in
the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.

01:016:008 And he said, Hagar, Sarai's maid, whence camest thou? and
whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress
Sarai.

01:016:009 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Return to thy
mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.

01:016:010 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy
seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.

01:016:011 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art
with child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael;
because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.

01:016:012 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every
man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the
presence of all his brethren.

01:016:013 And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou
God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth
me?

01:016:014 Wherefore the well was called Beerlahairoi; behold, it is
between Kadesh and Bered.

01:016:015 And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son's name,
which Hagar bare, Ishmael.

01:016:016 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare
Ishmael to Abram.

01:017:001 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD
appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before
me, and be thou perfect.

01:017:002 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will
multiply thee exceedingly.

01:017:003 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,

01:017:004 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt
be a father of many nations.

01:017:005 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name
shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

01:017:006 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make
nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.

01:017:007 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy
seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be
a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.

01:017:008 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the
land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an
everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

01:017:009 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant
therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.

01:017:010 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you
and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.

01:017:011 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it
shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.

01:017:012 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you,
every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or
bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.

01:017:013 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy
money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh
for an everlasting covenant.

01:017:014 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin
is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath
broken my covenant.

01:017:015 And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt
not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.

01:017:016 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I
will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people
shall be of her.

01:017:017 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his
heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and
shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?

01:017:018 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before
thee!

01:017:019 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed;
and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant
with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

01:017:020 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed
him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly;
twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

01:017:021 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah
shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

01:017:022 And he left off talking with him, and God went up from
Abraham.

01:017:023 And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in
his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the
men of Abraham's house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in
the selfsame day, as God had said unto him.

01:017:024 And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was
circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.

01:017:025 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was
circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.

01:017:026 In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his
son.

01:017:027 And all the men of his house, born in the house, and bought
with money of the stranger, were circumcised with him.

01:018:001 And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he
sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;

01:018:002 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood
by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door,
and bowed himself toward the ground,

01:018:003 And said, My LORD, if now I have found favour in thy sight,
pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

01:018:004 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your
feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:

01:018:005 And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your
hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your
servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.

01:018:006 And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make
ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon
the hearth.

01:018:007 And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and
good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.

01:018:008 And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had
dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree,
and they did eat.

01:018:009 And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said,
Behold, in the tent.

01:018:010 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to
the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah
heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

01:018:011 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and
it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

01:018:012 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am
waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?

01:018:013 And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh,
saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?

01:018:014 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I
will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall
have a son.

01:018:015 Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid.
And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.

01:018:016 And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and
Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.

01:018:017 And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which
I do;

01:018:018 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty
nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

01:018:019 For I know him, that he will command his children and his
household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do
justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he
hath spoken of him.

01:018:020 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is
great, and because their sin is very grievous;

01:018:021 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether
according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will
know.

01:018:022 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward
Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.

01:018:023 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the
righteous with the wicked?

01:018:024 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt
thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that
are therein?

01:018:025 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the
righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the
wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do
right?

01:018:026 And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within
the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.

01:018:027 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon
me to speak unto the LORD, which am but dust and ashes:

01:018:028 Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous:
wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find
there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

01:018:029 And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there
shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's
sake.

01:018:030 And he said unto him, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I
will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said,
I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

01:018:031 And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto
the LORD: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I
will not destroy it for twenty's sake.

01:018:032 And he said, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak
yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I
will not destroy it for ten's sake.

01:018:033 And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing
with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

01:019:001 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in
the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he
bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

01:019:002 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into
your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye
shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we
will abide in the street all night.

01:019:003 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto
him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake
unleavened bread, and they did eat.

01:019:004 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men
of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people
from every quarter:

01:019:005 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the
men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we
may know them.

01:019:006 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door
after him,

01:019:007 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.

01:019:008 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man;
let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is
good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came
they under the shadow of my roof.

01:019:009 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one
fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we
deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the
man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.

01:019:010 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the
house to them, and shut to the door.

01:019:011 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house
with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to
find the door.

01:019:012 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in
law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the
city, bring them out of this place:

01:019:013 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is
waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to
destroy it.

01:019:014 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which
married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the
LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his
sons in law.

01:019:015 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot,
saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here;
lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

01:019:016 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and
upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the
LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him
without the city.

01:019:017 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad,
that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay
thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

01:019:018 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my LORD:

01:019:019 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and
thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving
my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me,
and I die:

01:019:020 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a
little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my
soul shall live.

01:019:021 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning
this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou
hast spoken.

01:019:022 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till
thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

01:019:023 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.

01:019:024 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone
and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

01:019:025 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the
inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

01:019:026 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a
pillar of salt.

01:019:027 And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he
stood before the LORD:

01:019:028 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the
land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up
as the smoke of a furnace.

01:019:029 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the
plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the
overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.

01:019:030 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and
his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt
in a cave, he and his two daughters.

01:019:031 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old,
and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner
of all the earth:

01:019:032 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with
him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

01:019:033 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the
firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when
she lay down, nor when she arose.

01:019:034 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said
unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make
him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that
we may preserve seed of our father.

01:019:035 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and
the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay
down, nor when she arose.

01:019:036 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their
father.

01:019:037 And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the
same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.

01:019:038 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name
Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

01:020:001 And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country,
and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar.

01:020:002 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and
Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.

01:020:003 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to
him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast
taken; for she is a man's wife.

01:020:004 But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, LORD, wilt
thou slay also a righteous nation?

01:020:005 Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she
herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and
innocency of my hands have I done this.

01:020:006 And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst
this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from
sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.

01:020:007 Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet,
and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her
not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.

01:020:008 Therefore Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all
his servants, and told all these things in their ears: and the men were
sore afraid.

01:020:009 Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What hast
thou done unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou hast brought
on me and on my kingdom a great sin? thou hast done deeds unto me that
ought not to be done.

01:020:010 And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou
hast done this thing?

01:020:011 And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God
is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife's sake.

01:020:012 And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my
father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.

01:020:013 And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my
father's house, that I said unto her, This is thy kindness which thou
shalt shew unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me, He
is my brother.

01:020:014 And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and
womenservants, and gave them unto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his
wife.

01:020:015 And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before thee: dwell
where it pleaseth thee.

01:020:016 And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a
thousand pieces of silver: behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes,
unto all that are with thee, and with all other: thus she was reproved.

01:020:017 So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his
wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.

01:020:018 For the LORD had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of
Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.

01:021:001 And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did
unto Sarah as he had spoken.

01:021:002 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age,
at the set time of which God had spoken to him.

01:021:003 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto
him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.

01:021:004 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old,
as God had commanded him.

01:021:005 And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was
born unto him.

01:021:006 And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that
hear will laugh with me.

01:021:007 And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah
should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old
age.

01:021:008 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great
feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.

01:021:009 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had
born unto Abraham, mocking.

01:021:010 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and
her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son,
even with Isaac.

01:021:011 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of
his son.

01:021:012 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy
sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that
Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall
thy seed be called.

01:021:013 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation,
because he is thy seed.

01:021:014 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and
a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder,
and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the
wilderness of Beersheba.

01:021:015 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child
under one of the shrubs.

01:021:016 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way
off, as it were a bow shot: for she said, Let me not see the death of
the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and
wept.

01:021:017 And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God
called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee,
Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.

01:021:018 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I
will make him a great nation.

01:021:019 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she
went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.

01:021:020 And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the
wilderness, and became an archer.

01:021:021 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took
him a wife out of the land of Egypt.

01:021:022 And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phichol
the chief captain of his host spake unto Abraham, saying, God is with
thee in all that thou doest:

01:021:023 Now therefore swear unto me here by God that thou wilt not
deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son's son: but
according to the kindness that I have done unto thee, thou shalt do unto
me, and to the land wherein thou hast sojourned.

01:021:024 And Abraham said, I will swear.

01:021:025 And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water,
which Abimelech's servants had violently taken away.

01:021:026 And Abimelech said, I wot not who hath done this thing;
neither didst thou tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but to day.

01:021:027 And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them unto
Abimelech; and both of them made a covenant.

01:021:028 And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.

01:021:029 And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What mean these seven ewe
lambs which thou hast set by themselves?

01:021:030 And he said, For these seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my
hand, that they may be a witness unto me, that I have digged this well.

01:021:031 Wherefore he called that place Beersheba; because there they
sware both of them.

01:021:032 Thus they made a covenant at Beersheba: then Abimelech rose
up, and Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they returned into
the land of the Philistines.

01:021:033 And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba, and called there on
the name of the LORD, the everlasting God.

01:021:034 And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines' land many days.

01:022:001 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt
Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

01:022:002 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom
thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there
for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee
of.

01:022:003 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his
ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and
clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the
place of which God had told him.

01:022:004 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the
place afar off.

01:022:005 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the
ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to
you.

01:022:006 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it
upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and
they went both of them together.

01:022:007 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father:
and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the
wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?

01:022:008 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for
a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.

01:022:009 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and
Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound
Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.

01:022:010 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to
slay his son.

01:022:011 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and
said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.

01:022:012 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou
any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou
hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

01:022:013 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind
him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took
the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his
son.

01:022:014 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it
is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.

01:022:015 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven
the second time,

01:022:016 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because
thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only
son:

01:022:017 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will
multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is
upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

01:022:018 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be
blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

01:022:019 So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and
went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.

01:022:020 And it came to pass after these things, that it was told
Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she hath also born children unto thy
brother Nahor;

01:022:021 Huz his firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father
of Aram,

01:022:022 And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.

01:022:023 And Bethuel begat Rebekah: these eight Milcah did bear to
Nahor, Abraham's brother.

01:022:024 And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she bare also
Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.

01:023:001 And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old:
these were the years of the life of Sarah.

01:023:002 And Sarah died in Kirjatharba; the same is Hebron in the land
of Canaan: and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.

01:023:003 And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the
sons of Heth, saying,

01:023:004 I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a
possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my
sight.

01:023:005 And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him,

01:023:006 Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty prince among us: in the
choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from
thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.

01:023:007 And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the
land, even to the children of Heth.

01:023:008 And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind that I
should bury my dead out of my sight; hear me, and intreat for me to
Ephron the son of Zohar,

01:023:009 That he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath,
which is in the end of his field; for as much money as it is worth he
shall give it me for a possession of a buryingplace amongst you.

01:023:010 And Ephron dwelt among the children of Heth: and Ephron the
Hittite answered Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, even
of all that went in at the gate of his city, saying,

01:023:011 Nay, my lord, hear me: the field give I thee, and the cave
that is therein, I give it thee; in the presence of the sons of my
people give I it thee: bury thy dead.

01:023:012 And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land.

01:023:013 And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the
land, saying, But if thou wilt give it, I pray thee, hear me: I will
give thee money for the field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead
there.

01:023:014 And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him,

01:023:015 My lord, hearken unto me: the land is worth four hundred
shekels of silver; what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy
dead.

01:023:016 And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to
Ephron the silver, which he had named in the audience of the sons of
Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant.

01:023:017 And the field of Ephron which was in Machpelah, which was
before Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the
trees that were in the field, that were in all the borders round about,
were made sure

01:023:018 Unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children
of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city.

01:023:019 And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of
the field of Machpelah before Mamre: the same is Hebron in the land of
Canaan.

01:023:020 And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure
unto Abraham for a possession of a buryingplace by the sons of Heth.

01:024:001 And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD
had blessed Abraham in all things.

01:024:002 And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that
ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:

01:024:003 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven,
and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of
the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:

01:024:004 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and
take a wife unto my son Isaac.

01:024:005 And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman will
not be willing to follow me unto this land: must I needs bring thy son
again unto the land from whence thou camest?

01:024:006 And Abraham said unto him, Beware thou that thou bring not my
son thither again.

01:024:007 The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father's house,
and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware
unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his
angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.

01:024:008 And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then
thou shalt be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither
again.

01:024:009 And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his
master, and sware to him concerning that matter.

01:024:010 And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master,
and departed; for all the goods of his master were in his hand: and he
arose, and went to Mesopotamia, unto the city of Nahor.

01:024:011 And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a
well of water at the time of the evening, even the time that women go
out to draw water.

01:024:012 And he said O LORD God of my master Abraham, I pray thee,
send me good speed this day, and shew kindness unto my master Abraham.

01:024:013 Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters
of the men of the city come out to draw water:

01:024:014 And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say,
Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say,
Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she that
thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that
thou hast shewed kindness unto my master.

01:024:015 And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that,
behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the
wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder.

01:024:016 And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither
had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her
pitcher, and came up.

01:024:017 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray
thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher.

01:024:018 And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hasted, and let down
her pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.

01:024:019 And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw
water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.

01:024:020 And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and
ran again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels.

01:024:021 And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit whether
the LORD had made his journey prosperous or not.

01:024:022 And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that
the man took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets
for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold;

01:024:023 And said, Whose daughter art thou? tell me, I pray thee: is
there room in thy father's house for us to lodge in?

01:024:024 And she said unto him, I am the daughter of Bethuel the son
of Milcah, which she bare unto Nahor.

01:024:025 She said moreover unto him, We have both straw and provender
enough, and room to lodge in.

01:024:026 And the man bowed down his head, and worshipped the LORD.

01:024:027 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham,
who hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I
being in the way, the LORD led me to the house of my master's brethren.

01:024:028 And the damsel ran, and told them of her mother's house these
things.

01:024:029 And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban: and Laban
ran out unto the man, unto the well.

01:024:030 And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets
upon his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his
sister, saying, Thus spake the man unto me; that he came unto the man;
and, behold, he stood by the camels at the well.

01:024:031 And he said, Come in, thou blessed of the LORD; wherefore
standest thou without? for I have prepared the house, and room for the
camels.

01:024:032 And the man came into the house: and he ungirded his camels,
and gave straw and provender for the camels, and water to wash his feet,
and the men's feet that were with him.

01:024:033 And there was set meat before him to eat: but he said, I will
not eat, until I have told mine errand. And he said, Speak on.

01:024:034 And he said, I am Abraham's servant.

01:024:035 And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become
great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold,
and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.

01:024:036 And Sarah my master's wife bare a son to my master when she
was old: and unto him hath he given all that he hath.

01:024:037 And my master made me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a
wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I
dwell:

01:024:038 But thou shalt go unto my father's house, and to my kindred,
and take a wife unto my son.

01:024:039 And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not
follow me.

01:024:040 And he said unto me, The LORD, before whom I walk, will send
his angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for
my son of my kindred, and of my father's house:

01:024:041 Then shalt thou be clear from this my oath, when thou comest
to my kindred; and if they give not thee one, thou shalt be clear from
my oath.

01:024:042 And I came this day unto the well, and said, O LORD God of my
master Abraham, if now thou do prosper my way which I go:

01:024:043 Behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to
pass, that when the virgin cometh forth to draw water, and I say to her,
Give me, I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher to drink;

01:024:044 And she say to me, Both drink thou, and I will also draw for
thy camels: let the same be the woman whom the LORD hath appointed out
for my master's son.

01:024:045 And before I had done speaking in mine heart, behold, Rebekah
came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down unto the
well, and drew water: and I said unto her, Let me drink, I pray thee.

01:024:046 And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her
shoulder, and said, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: so I
drank, and she made the camels drink also.

01:024:047 And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter art thou? And she
said, the daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bare unto him:
and I put the earring upon her face, and the bracelets upon her hands.

01:024:048 And I bowed down my head, and worshipped the LORD, and
blessed the LORD God of my master Abraham, which had led me in the right
way to take my master's brother's daughter unto his son.

01:024:049 And now if ye will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell
me: and if not, tell me; that I may turn to the right hand, or to the
left.

01:024:050 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing
proceedeth from the LORD: we cannot speak unto thee bad or good.

01:024:051 Behold, Rebekah is before thee, take her, and go, and let her
be thy master's son's wife, as the LORD hath spoken.

01:024:052 And it came to pass, that, when Abraham's servant heard their
words, he worshipped the LORD, bowing himself to the earth.

01:024:053 And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of
gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother
and to her mother precious things.

01:024:054 And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were with
him, and tarried all night; and they rose up in the morning, and he
said, Send me away unto my master.

01:024:055 And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide
with us a few days, at the least ten; after that she shall go.

01:024:056 And he said unto them, Hinder me not, seeing the LORD hath
prospered my way; send me away that I may go to my master.

01:024:057 And they said, We will call the damsel, and enquire at her
mouth.

01:024:058 And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with
this man? And she said, I will go.

01:024:059 And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and
Abraham's servant, and his men.

01:024:060 And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our
sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed
possess the gate of those which hate them.

01:024:061 And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the
camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and went his
way.

01:024:062 And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahairoi; for he
dwelt in the south country.

01:024:063 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide:
and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.

01:024:064 And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she
lighted off the camel.

01:024:065 For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that
walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my
master: therefore she took a vail, and covered herself.

01:024:066 And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.

01:024:067 And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took
Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was
comforted after his mother's death.

01:025:001 Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.

01:025:002 And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian,
and Ishbak, and Shuah.

01:025:003 And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan
were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.

01:025:004 And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and
Abidah, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.

01:025:005 And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.

01:025:006 But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had,
Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet
lived, eastward, unto the east country.

01:025:007 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which
he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.

01:025:008 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age,
an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.

01:025:009 And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of
Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is
before Mamre;

01:025:010 The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: there
was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.

01:025:011 And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God
blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahairoi.

01:025:012 Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom
Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:

01:025:013 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their
names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael,
Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,

01:025:014 And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,

01:025:015 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:

01:025:016 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by
their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their
nations.

01:025:017 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred
and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was
gathered unto his people.

01:025:018 And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt,
as thou goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his
brethren.

01:025:019 And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son:
Abraham begat Isaac:

01:025:020 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife,
the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the
Syrian.

01:025:021 And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was
barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife
conceived.

01:025:022 And the children struggled together within her; and she said,
If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD.

01:025:023 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and
two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one
people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall
serve the younger.

01:025:024 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold,
there were twins in her womb.

01:025:025 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment;
and they called his name Esau.

01:025:026 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold
on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore
years old when she bare them.

01:025:027 And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of
the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.

01:025:028 And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but
Rebekah loved Jacob.

01:025:029 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he
was faint:

01:025:030 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same
red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.

01:025:031 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.

01:025:032 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what
profit shall this birthright do to me?

01:025:033 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him:
and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.

01:025:034 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he
did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his
birthright.

01:026:001 And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine
that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of
the Philistines unto Gerar.

01:026:002 And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into
Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:

01:026:003 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless
thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries,
and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;

01:026:004 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven,
and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall
all the nations of the earth be blessed;

01:026:005 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my
commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

01:026:006 And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:

01:026:007 And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said,
She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he,
the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to
look upon.

01:026:008 And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that
Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and,
behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.

01:026:009 And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she
is thy wife; and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto
him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.

01:026:010 And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one
of the people might lightly have lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest
have brought guiltiness upon us.

01:026:011 And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that
toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.

01:026:012 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year
an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.

01:026:013 And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he
became very great:

01:026:014 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and
great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.

01:026:015 For all the wells which his father's servants had digged in
the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and
filled them with earth.

01:026:016 And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much
mightier than we.

01:026:017 And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley
of Gerar, and dwelt there.

01:026:018 And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had
digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had
stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after
the names by which his father had called them.

01:026:019 And Isaac's servants digged in the valley, and found there a
well of springing water.

01:026:020 And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdmen,
saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek;
because they strove with him.

01:026:021 And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and
he called the name of it Sitnah.

01:026:022 And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for
that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he
said, For now the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful
in the land.

01:026:023 And he went up from thence to Beersheba.

01:026:024 And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am
the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will
bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake.

01:026:025 And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of
the LORD, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac's servants digged
a well.

01:026:026 Then Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of
his friends, and Phichol the chief captain of his army.

01:026:027 And Isaac said unto them, Wherefore come ye to me, seeing ye
hate me, and have sent me away from you?

01:026:028 And they said, We saw certainly that the LORD was with thee:
and we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and
thee, and let us make a covenant with thee;

01:026:029 That thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee,
and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away
in peace: thou art now the blessed of the LORD.

01:026:030 And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.

01:026:031 And they rose up betimes in the morning, and sware one to
another: and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace.

01:026:032 And it came to pass the same day, that Isaac's servants came,
and told him concerning the well which they had digged, and said unto
him, We have found water.

01:026:033 And he called it Shebah: therefore the name of the city is
Beersheba unto this day.

01:026:034 And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the
daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the
Hittite:

01:026:035 Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.

01:027:001 And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes
were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and
said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I.

01:027:002 And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my
death:

01:027:003 Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and
thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison;

01:027:004 And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me,
that I may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die.

01:027:005 And Rebekah heard when Isaac spake to Esau his son. And Esau
went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.

01:027:006 And Rebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard
thy father speak unto Esau thy brother, saying,

01:027:007 Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat,
and bless thee before the LORD before my death.

01:027:008 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which
I command thee.

01:027:009 Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids
of the goats; and I will make them savoury meat for thy father, such as
he loveth:

01:027:010 And thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, and
that he may bless thee before his death.

01:027:011 And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother
is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man:

01:027:012 My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him
as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing.

01:027:013 And his mother said unto him, Upon me be thy curse, my son:
only obey my voice, and go fetch me them.

01:027:014 And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and
his mother made savoury meat, such as his father loved.

01:027:015 And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which
were with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son:

01:027:016 And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his
hands, and upon the smooth of his neck:

01:027:017 And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had
prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.

01:027:018 And he came unto his father, and said, My father: and he
said, Here am I; who art thou, my son?

01:027:019 And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy first born; I
have done according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat
of my venison, that thy soul may bless me.

01:027:020 And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that thou hast found
it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the LORD thy God brought it
to me.

01:027:021 And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may
feel thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not.

01:027:022 And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him,
and said, The voice is Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of
Esau.

01:027:023 And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as
his brother Esau's hands: so he blessed him.

01:027:024 And he said, Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am.

01:027:025 And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son's
venison, that my soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and
he did eat: and he brought him wine and he drank.

01:027:026 And his father Isaac said unto him, Come near now, and kiss
me, my son.

01:027:027 And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of
his raiment, and blessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son is as
the smell of a field which the LORD hath blessed:

01:027:028 Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness
of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:

01:027:029 Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord
over thy brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: cursed be
every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.

01:027:030 And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of
blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of
Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.

01:027:031 And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his
father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his
son's venison, that thy soul may bless me.

01:027:032 And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he
said, I am thy son, thy firstborn Esau.

01:027:033 And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is
he that hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all
before thou camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed.

01:027:034 And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a
great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even
me also, O my father.

01:027:035 And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken
away thy blessing.

01:027:036 And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath
supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold,
now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved
a blessing for me?

01:027:037 And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made
him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and
with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now unto
thee, my son?

01:027:038 And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my
father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his
voice, and wept.

01:027:039 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy
dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven
from above;

01:027:040 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy
brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion,
that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.

01:027:041 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his
father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for
my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.

01:027:042 And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah:
and she sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him,
Behold, thy brother Esau, as touching thee, doth comfort himself,
purposing to kill thee.

01:027:043 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; arise, flee thou to
Laban my brother to Haran;

01:027:044 And tarry with him a few days, until thy brother's fury turn
away;

01:027:045 Until thy brother's anger turn away from thee, and he forget
that which thou hast done to him: then I will send, and fetch thee from
thence: why should I be deprived also of you both in one day?

01:027:046 And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of
the daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth,
such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my
life do me?

01:028:001 And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and
said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

01:028:002 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's
father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy
mother's brother.

01:028:003 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and
multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;

01:028:004 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy
seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a
stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.

01:028:005 And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto
Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and
Esau's mother.

01:028:006 When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away
to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him
he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters
of Canaan;

01:028:007 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone
to Padanaram;

01:028:008 And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not
Isaac his father;

01:028:009 Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he
had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of
Nebajoth, to be his wife.

01:028:010 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

01:028:011 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all
night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place,
and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

01:028:012 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and
the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending
and descending on it.

01:028:013 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD
God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou
liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

01:028:014 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou
shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and
to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the
earth be blessed.

01:028:015 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places
whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will
not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

01:028:016 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the
LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

01:028:017 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this
is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

01:028:018 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone
that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured
oil upon the top of it.

01:028:019 And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of
that city was called Luz at the first.

01:028:020 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and
will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and
raiment to put on,

01:028:021 So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then
shall the LORD be my God:

01:028:022 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's
house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth
unto thee.

01:029:001 Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the
people of the east.

01:029:002 And he looked, and behold a well in the field, and, lo, there
were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they
watered the flocks: and a great stone was upon the well's mouth.

01:029:003 And thither were all the flocks gathered: and they rolled the
stone from the well's mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone
again upon the well's mouth in his place.

01:029:004 And Jacob said unto them, My brethren, whence be ye? And they
said, Of Haran are we.

01:029:005 And he said unto them, Know ye Laban the son of Nahor? And
they said, We know him.

01:029:006 And he said unto them, Is he well? And they said, He is well:
and, behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep.

01:029:007 And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that
the cattle should be gathered together: water ye the sheep, and go and
feed them.

01:029:008 And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered
together, and till they roll the stone from the well's mouth; then we
water the sheep.

01:029:009 And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her
father's sheep; for she kept them.

01:029:010 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of
Laban his mother's brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother's brother,
that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and
watered the flock of Laban his mother's brother.

01:029:011 And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.

01:029:012 And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and
that he was Rebekah's son: and she ran and told her father.

01:029:013 And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob
his sister's son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed
him, and brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these things.

01:029:014 And Laban said to him, Surely thou art my bone and my flesh.
And he abode with him the space of a month.

01:029:015 And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother,
shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy
wages be?

01:029:016 And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah,
and the name of the younger was Rachel.

01:029:017 Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well
favoured.

01:029:018 And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven
years for Rachel thy younger daughter.

01:029:019 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than
that I should give her to another man: abide with me.

01:029:020 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto
him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

01:029:021 And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are
fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.

01:029:022 And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and
made a feast.

01:029:023 And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his
daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.

01:029:024 And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an
handmaid.

01:029:025 And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was
Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not
I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?

01:029:026 And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to
give the younger before the firstborn.

01:029:027 Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the
service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

01:029:028 And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him
Rachel his daughter to wife also.

01:029:029 And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to
be her maid.

01:029:030 And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel
more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.

01:029:031 And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her
womb: but Rachel was barren.

01:029:032 And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name
Reuben: for she said, Surely the LORD hath looked upon my affliction;
now therefore my husband will love me.

01:029:033 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because
the LORD hath heard I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son
also: and she called his name Simeon.

01:029:034 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this
time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three
sons: therefore was his name called Levi.

01:029:035 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now
will I praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah; and left
bearing.

01:030:001 And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel
envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.

01:030:002 And Jacob's anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am
I in God's stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

01:030:003 And she said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in unto her; and she
shall bear upon my knees, that I may also have children by her.

01:030:004 And she gave him Bilhah her handmaid to wife: and Jacob went
in unto her.

01:030:005 And Bilhah conceived, and bare Jacob a son.

01:030:006 And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my
voice, and hath given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan.

01:030:007 And Bilhah Rachel's maid conceived again, and bare Jacob a
second son.

01:030:008 And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with
my sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali.

01:030:009 When Leah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zilpah her
maid, and gave her Jacob to wife.

01:030:010 And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a son.

01:030:011 And Leah said, A troop cometh: and she called his name Gad.

01:030:012 And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a second son.

01:030:013 And Leah said, Happy am I, for the daughters will call me
blessed: and she called his name Asher.

01:030:014 And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found
mandrakes in the field, and brought them unto his mother Leah. Then
Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray thee, of thy son's mandrakes.

01:030:015 And she said unto her, Is it a small matter that thou hast
taken my husband? and wouldest thou take away my son's mandrakes also?
And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with thee to night for thy son's
mandrakes.

01:030:016 And Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went
out to meet him, and said, Thou must come in unto me; for surely I have
hired thee with my son's mandrakes. And he lay with her that night.

01:030:017 And God hearkened unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare
Jacob the fifth son.

01:030:018 And Leah said, God hath given me my hire, because I have
given my maiden to my husband: and she called his name Issachar.

01:030:019 And Leah conceived again, and bare Jacob the sixth son.

01:030:020 And Leah said, God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will
my husband dwell with me, because I have born him six sons: and she
called his name Zebulun.

01:030:021 And afterwards she bare a daughter, and called her name
Dinah.

01:030:022 And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and
opened her womb.

01:030:023 And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken
away my reproach:

01:030:024 And she called his name Joseph; and said, The LORD shall add
to me another son.

01:030:025 And it came to pass, when Rachel had born Joseph, that Jacob
said unto Laban, Send me away, that I may go unto mine own place, and to
my country.

01:030:026 Give me my wives and my children, for whom I have served
thee, and let me go: for thou knowest my service which I have done thee.

01:030:027 And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour
in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the LORD
hath blessed me for thy sake.

01:030:028 And he said, Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it.

01:030:029 And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have served thee,
and how thy cattle was with me.

01:030:030 For it was little which thou hadst before I came, and it is
now increased unto a multitude; and the LORD hath blessed thee since my
coming: and now when shall I provide for mine own house also?

01:030:031 And he said, What shall I give thee? And Jacob said, Thou
shalt not give me any thing: if thou wilt do this thing for me, I will
again feed and keep thy flock.

01:030:032 I will pass through all thy flock to day, removing from
thence all the speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle
among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of
such shall be my hire.

01:030:033 So shall my righteousness answer for me in time to come, when
it shall come for my hire before thy face: every one that is not
speckled and spotted among the goats, and brown among the sheep, that
shall be counted stolen with me.

01:030:034 And Laban said, Behold, I would it might be according to thy
word.

01:030:035 And he removed that day the he goats that were ringstraked
and spotted, and all the she goats that were speckled and spotted, and
every one that had some white in it, and all the brown among the sheep,
and gave them into the hand of his sons.

01:030:036 And he set three days' journey betwixt himself and Jacob: and
Jacob fed the rest of Laban's flocks.

01:030:037 And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and
chesnut tree; and pilled white strakes in them, and made the white
appear which was in the rods.

01:030:038 And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in
the gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks came to drink, that
they should conceive when they came to drink.

01:030:039 And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth
cattle ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.

01:030:040 And Jacob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of the
flocks toward the ringstraked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban;
and he put his own flocks by themselves, and put them not unto Laban's
cattle.

01:030:041 And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did
conceive, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the
gutters, that they might conceive among the rods.

01:030:042 But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in: so the
feebler were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's.

01:030:043 And the man increased exceedingly, and had much cattle, and
maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses.

01:031:001 And he heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob hath
taken away all that was our father's; and of that which was our father's
hath he gotten all this glory.

01:031:002 And Jacob beheld the countenance of Laban, and, behold, it
was not toward him as before.

01:031:003 And the LORD said unto Jacob, Return unto the land of thy
fathers, and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee.

01:031:004 And Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field unto
his flock,

01:031:005 And said unto them, I see your father's countenance, that it
is not toward me as before; but the God of my father hath been with me.

01:031:006 And ye know that with all my power I have served your father.

01:031:007 And your father hath deceived me, and changed my wages ten
times; but God suffered him not to hurt me.

01:031:008 If he said thus, The speckled shall be thy wages; then all
the cattle bare speckled: and if he said thus, The ringstraked shall be
thy hire; then bare all the cattle ringstraked.

01:031:009 Thus God hath taken away the cattle of your father, and given
them to me.

01:031:010 And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived,
that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams
which leaped upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled.

01:031:011 And the angel of God spake unto me in a dream, saying, Jacob:
And I said, Here am I.

01:031:012 And he said, Lift up now thine eyes, and see, all the rams
which leap upon the cattle are ringstraked, speckled, and grisled: for I
have seen all that Laban doeth unto thee.

01:031:013 I am the God of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, and
where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this
land, and return unto the land of thy kindred.

01:031:014 And Rachel and Leah answered and said unto him, Is there yet
any portion or inheritance for us in our father's house?

01:031:015 Are we not counted of him strangers? for he hath sold us, and
hath quite devoured also our money.

01:031:016 For all the riches which God hath taken from our father, that
is ours, and our children's: now then, whatsoever God hath said unto
thee, do.

01:031:017 Then Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives upon
camels;

01:031:018 And he carried away all his cattle, and all his goods which
he had gotten, the cattle of his getting, which he had gotten in
Padanaram, for to go to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan.

01:031:019 And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the
images that were her father's.

01:031:020 And Jacob stole away unawares to Laban the Syrian, in that he
told him not that he fled.

01:031:021 So he fled with all that he had; and he rose up, and passed
over the river, and set his face toward the mount Gilead.

01:031:022 And it was told Laban on the third day that Jacob was fled.

01:031:023 And he took his brethren with him, and pursued after him
seven days' journey; and they overtook him in the mount Gilead.

01:031:024 And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and
said unto him, Take heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or
bad.

01:031:025 Then Laban overtook Jacob. Now Jacob had pitched his tent in
the mount: and Laban with his brethren pitched in the mount of Gilead.

01:031:026 And Laban said to Jacob, What hast thou done, that thou hast
stolen away unawares to me, and carried away my daughters, as captives
taken with the sword?

01:031:027 Wherefore didst thou flee away secretly, and steal away from
me; and didst not tell me, that I might have sent thee away with mirth,
and with songs, with tabret, and with harp?

01:031:028 And hast not suffered me to kiss my sons and my daughters?
thou hast now done foolishly in so doing.

01:031:029 It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the God of
your father spake unto me yesternight, saying, Take thou heed that thou
speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

01:031:030 And now, though thou wouldest needs be gone, because thou
sore longedst after thy father's house, yet wherefore hast thou stolen
my gods?

01:031:031 And Jacob answered and said to Laban, Because I was afraid:
for I said, Peradventure thou wouldest take by force thy daughters from
me.

01:031:032 With whomsoever thou findest thy gods, let him not live:
before our brethren discern thou what is thine with me, and take it to
thee. For Jacob knew not that Rachel had stolen them.

01:031:033 And Laban went into Jacob's tent, and into Leah's tent, and
into the two maidservants' tents; but he found them not. Then went he
out of Leah's tent, and entered into Rachel's tent.

01:031:034 Now Rachel had taken the images, and put them in the camel's
furniture, and sat upon them. And Laban searched all the tent, but found
them not.

01:031:035 And she said to her father, Let it not displease my lord that
I cannot rise up before thee; for the custom of women is upon me. And he
searched but found not the images.

01:031:036 And Jacob was wroth, and chode with Laban: and Jacob answered
and said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that thou hast
so hotly pursued after me?

01:031:037 Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast thou found
of all thy household stuff? set it here before my brethren and thy
brethren, that they may judge betwixt us both.

01:031:038 This twenty years have I been with thee; thy ewes and thy she
goats have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock have I not
eaten.

01:031:039 That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee; I bare
the loss of it; of my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by day,
or stolen by night.

01:031:040 Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost
by night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes.

01:031:041 Thus have I been twenty years in thy house; I served thee
fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle: and
thou hast changed my wages ten times.

01:031:042 Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear
of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty.
God hath seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked
thee yesternight.

01:031:043 And Laban answered and said unto Jacob, These daughters are
my daughters, and these children are my children, and these cattle are
my cattle, and all that thou seest is mine: and what can I do this day
unto these my daughters, or unto their children which they have born?

01:031:044 Now therefore come thou, let us make a covenant, I and thou;
and let it be for a witness between me and thee.

01:031:045 And Jacob took a stone, and set it up for a pillar.

01:031:046 And Jacob said unto his brethren, Gather stones; and they
took stones, and made an heap: and they did eat there upon the heap.

01:031:047 And Laban called it Jegarsahadutha: but Jacob called it
Galeed.

01:031:048 And Laban said, This heap is a witness between me and thee
this day. Therefore was the name of it called Galeed;

01:031:049 And Mizpah; for he said, The LORD watch between me and thee,
when we are absent one from another.

01:031:050 If thou shalt afflict my daughters, or if thou shalt take
other wives beside my daughters, no man is with us; see, God is witness
betwixt me and thee.

01:031:051 And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and behold this
pillar, which I have cast betwixt me and thee:

01:031:052 This heap be witness, and this pillar be witness, that I will
not pass over this heap to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over this
heap and this pillar unto me, for harm.

01:031:053 The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their
father, judge betwixt us. And Jacob sware by the fear of his father
Isaac.

01:031:054 Then Jacob offered sacrifice upon the mount, and called his
brethren to eat bread: and they did eat bread, and tarried all night in
the mount.

01:031:055 And early in the morning Laban rose up, and kissed his sons
and his daughters, and blessed them: and Laban departed, and returned
unto his place.

01:032:001 And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.

01:032:002 And when Jacob saw them, he said, This is God's host: and he
called the name of that place Mahanaim.

01:032:003 And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto
the land of Seir, the country of Edom.

01:032:004 And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall ye speak unto my
lord Esau; Thy servant Jacob saith thus, I have sojourned with Laban,
and stayed there until now:

01:032:005 And I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and
womenservants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in
thy sight.

01:032:006 And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy
brother Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with
him.

01:032:007 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided
the people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels,
into two bands;

01:032:008 And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then
the other company which is left shall escape.

01:032:009 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my
father Isaac, the LORD which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country,
and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee:

01:032:010 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all
the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I
passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.

01:032:011 Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from
the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and
the mother with the children.

01:032:012 And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy
seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.

01:032:013 And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which
came to his hand a present for Esau his brother;

01:032:014 Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes,
and twenty rams,

01:032:015 Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten
bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals.

01:032:016 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every
drove by themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me,
and put a space betwixt drove and drove.

01:032:017 And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother
meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest
thou? and whose are these before thee?

01:032:018 Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob's; it is a
present sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.

01:032:019 And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that
followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau,
when ye find him.

01:032:020 And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us.
For he said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me,
and afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.

01:032:021 So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that
night in the company.

01:032:022 And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his
two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok.

01:032:023 And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over
that he had.

01:032:024 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him
until the breaking of the day.

01:032:025 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched
the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of
joint, as he wrestled with him.

01:032:026 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I
will not let thee go, except thou bless me.

01:032:027 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.

01:032:028 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but
Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast
prevailed.

01:032:029 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy
name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And
he blessed him there.

01:032:030 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have
seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

01:032:031 And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he
halted upon his thigh.

01:032:032 Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which
shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he
touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh in the sinew that shrank.

01:033:001 And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau
came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto
Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.

01:033:002 And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and
Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.

01:033:003 And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the
ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.

01:033:004 And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his
neck, and kissed him: and they wept.

01:033:005 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the
children; and said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The children
which God hath graciously given thy servant.

01:033:006 Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and
they bowed themselves.

01:033:007 And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed
themselves: and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed
themselves.

01:033:008 And he said, What meanest thou by all this drove which I met?
And he said, These are to find grace in the sight of my lord.

01:033:009 And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that thou hast
unto thyself.

01:033:010 And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found grace
in thy sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have
seen thy face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast
pleased with me.

01:033:011 Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee;
because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough.
And he urged him, and he took it.

01:033:012 And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I
will go before thee.

01:033:013 And he said unto him, My lord knoweth that the children are
tender, and the flocks and herds with young are with me: and if men
should overdrive them one day, all the flock will die.

01:033:014 Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant: and I
will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and
the children be able to endure, until I come unto my lord unto Seir.

01:033:015 And Esau said, Let me now leave with thee some of the folk
that are with me. And he said, What needeth it? let me find grace in the
sight of my lord.

01:033:016 So Esau returned that day on his way unto Seir.

01:033:017 And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him an house, and
made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called
Succoth.

01:033:018 And Jacob came to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which is in the
land of Canaan, when he came from Padanaram; and pitched his tent before
the city.

01:033:019 And he bought a parcel of a field, where he had spread his
tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem's father, for an
hundred pieces of money.

01:033:020 And he erected there an altar, and called it EleloheIsrael.

01:034:001 And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob,
went out to see the daughters of the land.

01:034:002 And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the
country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.

01:034:003 And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he
loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel.

01:034:004 And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this
damsel to wife.

01:034:005 And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now
his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace
until they were come.

01:034:006 And Hamor the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to
commune with him.

01:034:007 And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard
it: and the men were grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had
wrought folly in Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter: which thing
ought not to be done.

01:034:008 And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son
Shechem longeth for your daughter: I pray you give her him to wife.

01:034:009 And make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters unto
us, and take our daughters unto you.

01:034:010 And ye shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you;
dwell and trade ye therein, and get you possessions therein.

01:034:011 And Shechem said unto her father and unto her brethren, Let
me find grace in your eyes, and what ye shall say unto me I will give.

01:034:012 Ask me never so much dowry and gift, and I will give
according as ye shall say unto me: but give me the damsel to wife.

01:034:013 And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father
deceitfully, and said, because he had defiled Dinah their sister:

01:034:014 And they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give our
sister to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach unto us:

01:034:015 But in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as we be,
that every male of you be circumcised;

01:034:016 Then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take
your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one
people.

01:034:017 But if ye will not hearken unto us, to be circumcised; then
will we take our daughter, and we will be gone.

01:034:018 And their words pleased Hamor, and Shechem Hamor's son.

01:034:019 And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he
had delight in Jacob's daughter: and he was more honourable than all the
house of his father.

01:034:020 And Hamor and Shechem his son came unto the gate of their
city, and communed with the men of their city, saying,

01:034:021 These men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in
the land, and trade therein; for the land, behold, it is large enough
for them; let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give
them our daughters.

01:034:022 Only herein will the men consent unto us for to dwell with
us, to be one people, if every male among us be circumcised, as they are
circumcised.

01:034:023 Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast of
their's be our's? only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell
with us.

01:034:024 And unto Hamor and unto Shechem his son hearkened all that
went out of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all
that went out of the gate of his city.

01:034:025 And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore,
that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brethren, took
each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the
males.

01:034:026 And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the
sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went out.

01:034:027 The sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and spoiled the city,
because they had defiled their sister.

01:034:028 They took their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses, and
that which was in the city, and that which was in the field,

01:034:029 And all their wealth, and all their little ones, and their
wives took they captive, and spoiled even all that was in the house.

01:034:030 And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to
make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites
and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather
themselves together against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I
and my house.

01:034:031 And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with an
harlot?

01:035:001 And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell
there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when
thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.

01:035:002 Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with
him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and
change your garments:

01:035:003 And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there
an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was
with me in the way which I went.

01:035:004 And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in
their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob
hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.

01:035:005 And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities
that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of
Jacob.

01:035:006 So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that
is, Bethel, he and all the people that were with him.

01:035:007 And he built there an altar, and called the place Elbethel:
because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his
brother.

01:035:008 But Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was buried beneath
Bethel under an oak: and the name of it was called Allonbachuth.

01:035:009 And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of
Padanaram, and blessed him.

01:035:010 And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not
be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called
his name Israel.

01:035:011 And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and
multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings
shall come out of thy loins;

01:035:012 And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will
give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.

01:035:013 And God went up from him in the place where he talked with
him.

01:035:014 And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with
him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and
he poured oil thereon.

01:035:015 And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with
him, Bethel.

01:035:016 And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little
way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.

01:035:017 And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the
midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.

01:035:018 And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she
died) that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him
Benjamin.

01:035:019 And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which
is Bethlehem.

01:035:020 And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of
Rachel's grave unto this day.

01:035:021 And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of
Edar.

01:035:022 And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that
Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard
it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:

01:035:023 The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, and
Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:

01:035:024 The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:

01:035:025 And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:

01:035:026 And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid: Gad, and Asher:
these are the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padanaram.

01:035:027 And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the
city of Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.

01:035:028 And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years.

01:035:029 And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto
his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob
buried him.

01:036:001 Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.

01:036:002 Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the
daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the
daughter of Zibeon the Hivite;

01:036:003 And Bashemath Ishmael's daughter, sister of Nebajoth.

01:036:004 And Adah bare to Esau Eliphaz; and Bashemath bare Reuel;

01:036:005 And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are
the sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan.

01:036:006 And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and
all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and
all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into
the country from the face of his brother Jacob.

01:036:007 For their riches were more than that they might dwell
together; and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them
because of their cattle.

01:036:008 Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.

01:036:009 And these are the generations of Esau the father of the
Edomites in mount Seir:

01:036:010 These are the names of Esau's sons; Eliphaz the son of Adah
the wife of Esau, Reuel the son of Bashemath the wife of Esau.

01:036:011 And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam,
and Kenaz.

01:036:012 And Timna was concubine to Eliphaz Esau's son; and she bare
to Eliphaz Amalek: these were the sons of Adah Esau's wife.

01:036:013 And these are the sons of Reuel; Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah,
and Mizzah: these were the sons of Bashemath Esau's wife.

01:036:014 And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah
the daughter of Zibeon, Esau's wife: and she bare to Esau Jeush, and
Jaalam, and Korah.

01:036:015 These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the
firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz,

01:036:016 Duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes
that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these were the sons of Adah.

01:036:017 And these are the sons of Reuel Esau's son; duke Nahath, duke
Zerah, duke Shammah, duke Mizzah: these are the dukes that came of Reuel
in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Bashemath Esau's wife.

01:036:018 And these are the sons of Aholibamah Esau's wife; duke Jeush,
duke Jaalam, duke Korah: these were the dukes that came of Aholibamah
the daughter of Anah, Esau's wife.

01:036:019 These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their
dukes.

01:036:020 These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who inhabited the
land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah,

01:036:021 And Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan: these are the dukes of the
Horites, the children of Seir in the land of Edom.

01:036:022 And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan's
sister was Timna.

01:036:023 And the children of Shobal were these; Alvan, and Manahath,
and Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.

01:036:024 And these are the children of Zibeon; both Ajah, and Anah:
this was that Anah that found the mules in the wilderness, as he fed the
asses of Zibeon his father.

01:036:025 And the children of Anah were these; Dishon, and Aholibamah
the daughter of Anah.

01:036:026 And these are the children of Dishon; Hemdan, and Eshban, and
Ithran, and Cheran.

01:036:027 The children of Ezer are these; Bilhan, and Zaavan, and Akan.

01:036:028 The children of Dishan are these; Uz, and Aran.

01:036:029 These are the dukes that came of the Horites; duke Lotan,
duke Shobal, duke Zibeon, duke Anah,

01:036:030 Duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan: these are the dukes that
came of Hori, among their dukes in the land of Seir.

01:036:031 And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom,
before there reigned any king over the children of Israel.

01:036:032 And Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom: and the name of his
city was Dinhabah.

01:036:033 And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned
in his stead.

01:036:034 And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Temani reigned in
his stead.

01:036:035 And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who smote Midian
in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was
Avith.

01:036:036 And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.

01:036:037 And Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in
his stead.

01:036:038 And Saul died, and Baalhanan the son of Achbor reigned in his
stead.

01:036:039 And Baalhanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in
his stead: and the name of his city was Pau; and his wife's name was
Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.

01:036:040 And these are the names of the dukes that came of Esau,
according to their families, after their places, by their names; duke
Timnah, duke Alvah, duke Jetheth,

01:036:041 Duke Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon,

01:036:042 Duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,

01:036:043 Duke Magdiel, duke Iram: these be the dukes of Edom,
according to their habitations in the land of their possession: he is
Esau the father of the Edomites.

01:037:001 And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a
stranger, in the land of Canaan.

01:037:002 These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen
years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with
the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and
Joseph brought unto his father their evil report.

01:037:003 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because
he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

01:037:004 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more
than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably
unto him.

01:037:005 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and
they hated him yet the more.

01:037:006 And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I
have dreamed:

01:037:007 For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo,
my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood
round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.

01:037:008 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over
us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet
the more for his dreams, and for his words.

01:037:009 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren,
and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and
the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

01:037:010 And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his
father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast
dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down
ourselves to thee to the earth?

01:037:011 And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the
saying.

01:037:012 And his brethren went to feed their father's flock in
Shechem.

01:037:013 And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed the
flock in Shechem? come, and I will send thee unto them. And he said to
him, Here am I.

01:037:014 And he said to him, Go, I pray thee, see whether it be well
with thy brethren, and well with the flocks; and bring me word again. So
he sent him out of the vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.

01:037:015 And a certain man found him, and, behold, he was wandering in
the field: and the man asked him, saying, What seekest thou?

01:037:016 And he said, I seek my brethren: tell me, I pray thee, where
they feed their flocks.

01:037:017 And the man said, They are departed hence; for I heard them
say, Let us go to Dothan. And Joseph went after his brethren, and found
them in Dothan.

01:037:018 And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto
them, they conspired against him to slay him.

01:037:019 And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.

01:037:020 Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into
some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we
shall see what will become of his dreams.

01:037:021 And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands;
and said, Let us not kill him.

01:037:022 And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into
this pit that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him; that he
might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.

01:037:023 And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren,
that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that
was on him;

01:037:024 And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was
empty, there was no water in it.

01:037:025 And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes
and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with
their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down
to Egypt.

01:037:026 And Judah said unto his brethren, What profit is it if we
slay our brother, and conceal his blood?

01:037:027 Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our
hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren
were content.

01:037:028 Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew
and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites
for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.

01:037:029 And Reuben returned unto the pit; and, behold, Joseph was not
in the pit; and he rent his clothes.

01:037:030 And he returned unto his brethren, and said, The child is
not; and I, whither shall I go?

01:037:031 And they took Joseph's coat, and killed a kid of the goats,
and dipped the coat in the blood;

01:037:032 And they sent the coat of many colours, and they brought it
to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be
thy son's coat or no.

01:037:033 And he knew it, and said, It is my son's coat; an evil beast
hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.

01:037:034 And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins,
and mourned for his son many days.

01:037:035 And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort
him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down
into the grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.

01:037:036 And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an
officer of Pharaoh's, and captain of the guard.

01:038:001 And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from
his brethren, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name was
Hirah.

01:038:002 And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose
name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her.

01:038:003 And she conceived, and bare a son; and he called his name Er.

01:038:004 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and she called his
name Onan.

01:038:005 And she yet again conceived, and bare a son; and called his
name Shelah: and he was at Chezib, when she bare him.

01:038:006 And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was
Tamar.

01:038:007 And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the
LORD; and the LORD slew him.

01:038:008 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother's wife, and
marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.

01:038:009 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to
pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled it on the
ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.

01:038:010 And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he
slew him also.

01:038:011 Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, Remain a widow
at thy father's house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest
peradventure he die also, as his brethren did. And Tamar went and dwelt
in her father's house.

01:038:012 And in process of time the daughter of Shuah Judah's wife
died; and Judah was comforted, and went up unto his sheepshearers to
Timnath, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite.

01:038:013 And it was told Tamar, saying, Behold thy father in law goeth
up to Timnath to shear his sheep.

01:038:014 And she put her widow's garments off from her, and covered
her with a vail, and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which is
by the way to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was
not given unto him to wife.

01:038:015 When Judah saw her, he thought her to be an harlot; because
she had covered her face.

01:038:016 And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray
thee, let me come in unto thee; (for he knew not that she was his
daughter in law.) And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest
come in unto me?

01:038:017 And he said, I will send thee a kid from the flock. And she
said, Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it?

01:038:018 And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she said, Thy
signet, and thy bracelets, and thy staff that is in thine hand. And he
gave it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him.

01:038:019 And she arose, and went away, and laid by her vail from her,
and put on the garments of her widowhood.

01:038:020 And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the
Adullamite, to receive his pledge from the woman's hand: but he found
her not.

01:038:021 Then he asked the men of that place, saying, Where is the
harlot, that was openly by the way side? And they said, There was no
harlot in this place.

01:038:022 And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and
also the men of the place said, that there was no harlot in this place.

01:038:023 And Judah said, Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed:
behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.

01:038:024 And it came to pass about three months after, that it was
told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot;
and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring
her forth, and let her be burnt.

01:038:025 When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law,
saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said,
Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and
staff.

01:038:026 And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more
righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he
knew her again no more.

01:038:027 And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold,
twins were in her womb.

01:038:028 And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out
his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread,
saying, This came out first.

01:038:029 And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold,
his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? this
breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.

01:038:030 And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet
thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.

01:039:001 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an
officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the
hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.

01:039:002 And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man;
and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

01:039:003 And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the
LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.

01:039:004 And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and
he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his
hand.

01:039:005 And it came to pass from the time that he had made him
overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed
the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was
upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.

01:039:006 And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not
ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly
person, and well favoured.

01:039:007 And it came to pass after these things, that his master's
wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.

01:039:008 But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my
master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed
all that he hath to my hand;

01:039:009 There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he
kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how
then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

01:039:010 And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that
he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.

01:039:011 And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into
the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house
there within.

01:039:012 And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and
he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

01:039:013 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his
garment in her hand, and was fled forth,

01:039:014 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto
them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he
came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:

01:039:015 And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice
and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.

01:039:016 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.

01:039:017 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The
Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock
me:

01:039:018 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that
he left his garment with me, and fled out.

01:039:019 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his
wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy
servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.

01:039:020 And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a
place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the
prison.

01:039:021 But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave
him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

01:039:022 And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all
the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he
was the doer of it.

01:039:023 The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was
under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did,
the LORD made it to prosper.

01:040:001 And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of
the king of Egypt and his baker had offended their lord the king of
Egypt.

01:040:002 And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers, against
the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers.

01:040:003 And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the
guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound.

01:040:004 And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he
served them: and they continued a season in ward.

01:040:005 And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in
one night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the
butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the
prison.

01:040:006 And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon
them, and, behold, they were sad.

01:040:007 And he asked Pharaoh's officers that were with him in the
ward of his lord's house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sadly to day?

01:040:008 And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is
no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations
belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.

01:040:009 And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to
him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me;

01:040:010 And in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it
budded, and her blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought
forth ripe grapes:

01:040:011 And Pharaoh's cup was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and
pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.

01:040:012 And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of it:
The three branches are three days:

01:040:013 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head, and
restore thee unto thy place: and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh's cup into
his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his butler.

01:040:014 But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and shew
kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and
bring me out of this house:

01:040:015 For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews:
and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the
dungeon.

01:040:016 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he
said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, I had three white
baskets on my head:

01:040:017 And in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of
bakemeats for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon
my head.

01:040:018 And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation
thereof: The three baskets are three days:

01:040:019 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off
thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh
from off thee.

01:040:020 And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's
birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up
the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.

01:040:021 And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again;
and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand:

01:040:022 But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to
them.

01:040:023 Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.

01:041:001 And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that
Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

01:041:002 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well
favoured kine and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow.

01:041:003 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the
river, ill favoured and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine upon
the brink of the river.

01:041:004 And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the
seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.

01:041:005 And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven
ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good.

01:041:006 And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind
sprung up after them.

01:041:007 And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full
ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

01:041:008 And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was
troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all
the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was
none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.

01:041:009 Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do
remember my faults this day:

01:041:010 Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in
the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker:

01:041:011 And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed
each man according to the interpretation of his dream.

01:041:012 And there was there with us a young man, an Hebrew, servant
to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us
our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret.

01:041:013 And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me
he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

01:041:014 Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him
hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his
raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.

01:041:015 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and
there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that
thou canst understand a dream to interpret it.

01:041:016 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God
shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

01:041:017 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood
upon the bank of the river:

01:041:018 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine,
fatfleshed and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow:

01:041:019 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and
very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land
of Egypt for badness:

01:041:020 And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first
seven fat kine:

01:041:021 And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that
they had eaten them; but they were still ill favoured, as at the
beginning. So I awoke.

01:041:022 And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one
stalk, full and good:

01:041:023 And, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the
east wind, sprung up after them:

01:041:024 And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told
this unto the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

01:041:025 And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one:
God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.

01:041:026 The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears
are seven years: the dream is one.

01:041:027 And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after
them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east
wind shall be seven years of famine.

01:041:028 This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God
is about to do he sheweth unto Pharaoh.

01:041:029 Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all
the land of Egypt:

01:041:030 And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and
all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine
shall consume the land;

01:041:031 And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of
that famine following; for it shall be very grievous.

01:041:032 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is
because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it
to pass.

01:041:033 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise,
and set him over the land of Egypt.

01:041:034 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the
land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven
plenteous years.

01:041:035 And let them gather all the food of those good years that
come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food
in the cities.

01:041:036 And that food shall be for store to the land against the
seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the
land perish not through the famine.

01:041:037 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the
eyes of all his servants.

01:041:038 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as
this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?

01:041:039 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed
thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:

01:041:040 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word
shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than
thou.

01:041:041 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all
the land of Egypt.

01:041:042 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon
Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold
chain about his neck;

01:041:043 And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had;
and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all
the land of Egypt.

01:041:044 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee
shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.

01:041:045 And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave
him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph
went out over all the land of Egypt.

01:041:046 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh
king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and
went throughout all the land of Egypt.

01:041:047 And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by
handfuls.

01:041:048 And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which
were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food
of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.

01:041:049 And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much,
until he left numbering; for it was without number.

01:041:050 And unto Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine
came, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto
him.

01:041:051 And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For
God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's
house.

01:041:052 And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath
caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.

01:041:053 And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of
Egypt, were ended.

01:041:054 And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as
Joseph had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of
Egypt there was bread.

01:041:055 And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried
to Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go unto
Joseph; what he saith to you, do.

01:041:056 And the famine was over all the face of the earth: and Joseph
opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine
waxed sore in the land of Egypt.

01:041:057 And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn;
because that the famine was so sore in all lands.

01:042:001 Now when Jacob saw that there was corn in Egypt, Jacob said
unto his sons, Why do ye look one upon another?

01:042:002 And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is corn in
Egypt: get you down thither, and buy for us from thence; that we may
live, and not die.

01:042:003 And Joseph's ten brethren went down to buy corn in Egypt.

01:042:004 But Benjamin, Joseph's brother, Jacob sent not with his
brethren; for he said, Lest peradventure mischief befall him.

01:042:005 And the sons of Israel came to buy corn among those that
came: for the famine was in the land of Canaan.

01:042:006 And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that
sold to all the people of the land: and Joseph's brethren came, and
bowed down themselves before him with their faces to the earth.

01:042:007 And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made
himself strange unto them, and spake roughly unto them; and he said unto
them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy
food.

01:042:008 And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him.

01:042:009 And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them,
and said unto them, Ye are spies; to see the nakedness of the land ye
are come.

01:042:010 And they said unto him, Nay, my lord, but to buy food are thy
servants come.

01:042:011 We are all one man's sons; we are true men, thy servants are
no spies.

01:042:012 And he said unto them, Nay, but to see the nakedness of the
land ye are come.

01:042:013 And they said, Thy servants are twelve brethren, the sons of
one man in the land of Canaan; and, behold, the youngest is this day
with our father, and one is not.

01:042:014 And Joseph said unto them, That is it that I spake unto you,
saying, Ye are spies:

01:042:015 Hereby ye shall be proved: By the life of Pharaoh ye shall
not go forth hence, except your youngest brother come hither.

01:042:016 Send one of you, and let him fetch your brother, and ye shall
be kept in prison, that your words may be proved, whether there be any
truth in you: or else by the life of Pharaoh surely ye are spies.

01:042:017 And he put them all together into ward three days.

01:042:018 And Joseph said unto them the third day, This do, and live;
for I fear God:

01:042:019 If ye be true men, let one of your brethren be bound in the
house of your prison: go ye, carry corn for the famine of your houses:

01:042:020 But bring your youngest brother unto me; so shall your words
be verified, and ye shall not die. And they did so.

01:042:021 And they said one to another, We are verily guilty concerning
our brother, in that we saw the anguish of his soul, when he besought
us, and we would not hear; therefore is this distress come upon us.

01:042:022 And Reuben answered them, saying, Spake I not unto you,
saying, Do not sin against the child; and ye would not hear? therefore,
behold, also his blood is required.

01:042:023 And they knew not that Joseph understood them; for he spake
unto them by an interpreter.

01:042:024 And he turned himself about from them, and wept; and returned
to them again, and communed with them, and took from them Simeon, and
bound him before their eyes.

01:042:025 Then Joseph commanded to fill their sacks with corn, and to
restore every man's money into his sack, and to give them provision for
the way: and thus did he unto them.

01:042:026 And they laded their asses with the corn, and departed
thence.

01:042:027 And as one of them opened his sack to give his ass provender
in the inn, he espied his money; for, behold, it was in his sack's
mouth.

01:042:028 And he said unto his brethren, My money is restored; and, lo,
it is even in my sack: and their heart failed them, and they were
afraid, saying one to another, What is this that God hath done unto us?

01:042:029 And they came unto Jacob their father unto the land of
Canaan, and told him all that befell unto them; saying,

01:042:030 The man, who is the lord of the land, spake roughly to us,
and took us for spies of the country.

01:042:031 And we said unto him, We are true men; we are no spies:

01:042:032 We be twelve brethren, sons of our father; one is not, and
the youngest is this day with our father in the land of Canaan.

01:042:033 And the man, the lord of the country, said unto us, Hereby
shall I know that ye are true men; leave one of your brethren here with
me, and take food for the famine of your households, and be gone:

01:042:034 And bring your youngest brother unto me: then shall I know
that ye are no spies, but that ye are true men: so will I deliver you
your brother, and ye shall traffick in the land.

01:042:035 And it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, that,
behold, every man's bundle of money was in his sack: and when both they
and their father saw the bundles of money, they were afraid.

01:042:036 And Jacob their father said unto them, Me have ye bereaved of
my children: Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and ye will take Benjamin
away: all these things are against me.

01:042:037 And Reuben spake unto his father, saying, Slay my two sons,
if I bring him not to thee: deliver him into my hand, and I will bring
him to thee again.

01:042:038 And he said, My son shall not go down with you; for his
brother is dead, and he is left alone: if mischief befall him by the way
in the which ye go, then shall ye bring down my gray hairs with sorrow
to the grave.

01:043:001 And the famine was sore in the land.

01:043:002 And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which
they had brought out of Egypt, their father said unto them, Go again,
buy us a little food.

01:043:003 And Judah spake unto him, saying, The man did solemnly
protest unto us, saying, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother
be with you.

01:043:004 If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and
buy thee food:

01:043:005 But if thou wilt not send him, we will not go down: for the
man said unto us, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with
you.

01:043:006 And Israel said, Wherefore dealt ye so ill with me, as to
tell the man whether ye had yet a brother?

01:043:007 And they said, The man asked us straitly of our state, and of
our kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have ye another brother?
and we told him according to the tenor of these words: could we
certainly know that he would say, Bring your brother down?

01:043:008 And Judah said unto Israel his father, Send the lad with me,
and we will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and
thou, and also our little ones.

01:043:009 I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him:
if I bring him not unto thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear
the blame for ever:

01:043:010 For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this
second time.

01:043:011 And their father Israel said unto them, If it must be so now,
do this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry
down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and
myrrh, nuts, and almonds:

01:043:012 And take double money in your hand; and the money that was
brought again in the mouth of your sacks, carry it again in your hand;
peradventure it was an oversight:

01:043:013 Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the man:

01:043:014 And God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may
send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be bereaved of my
children, I am bereaved.

01:043:015 And the men took that present, and they took double money in
their hand and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood
before Joseph.

01:043:016 And when Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the ruler
of his house, Bring these men home, and slay, and make ready; for these
men shall dine with me at noon.

01:043:017 And the man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men
into Joseph's house.

01:043:018 And the men were afraid, because they were brought into
Joseph's house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in
our sacks at the first time are we brought in; that he may seek occasion
against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses.

01:043:019 And they came near to the steward of Joseph's house, and they
communed with him at the door of the house,

01:043:020 And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy
food:

01:043:021 And it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that we opened
our sacks, and, behold, every man's money was in the mouth of his sack,
our money in full weight: and we have brought it again in our hand.

01:043:022 And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy
food: we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks.

01:043:023 And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: your God, and the God
of your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money.
And he brought Simeon out unto them.

01:043:024 And the man brought the men into Joseph's house, and gave
them water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses
provender.

01:043:025 And they made ready the present against Joseph came at noon:
for they heard that they should eat bread there.

01:043:026 And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which
was in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the
earth.

01:043:027 And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father
well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?

01:043:028 And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health,
he is yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.

01:043:029 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his
mother's son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake
unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.

01:043:030 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his
brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber,
and wept there.

01:043:031 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself,
and said, Set on bread.

01:043:032 And they set on for him by himself, and for them by
themselves, and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by
themselves: because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews;
for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians.

01:043:033 And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his
birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men
marvelled one at another.

01:043:034 And he took and sent messes unto them from before him: but
Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of their's. And they
drank, and were merry with him.

01:044:001 And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the
men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man's
money in his sack's mouth.

01:044:002 And put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack's mouth of the
youngest, and his corn money. And he did according to the word that
Joseph had spoken.

01:044:003 As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away,
they and their asses.

01:044:004 And when they were gone out of the city, and not yet far off,
Joseph said unto his steward, Up, follow after the men; and when thou
dost overtake them, say unto them, Wherefore have ye rewarded evil for
good?

01:044:005 Is not this it in which my lord drinketh, and whereby indeed
he divineth? ye have done evil in so doing.

01:044:006 And he overtook them, and he spake unto them these same
words.

01:044:007 And they said unto him, Wherefore saith my lord these words?
God forbid that thy servants should do according to this thing:

01:044:008 Behold, the money, which we found in our sacks' mouths, we
brought again unto thee out of the land of Canaan: how then should we
steal out of thy lord's house silver or gold?

01:044:009 With whomsoever of thy servants it be found, both let him
die, and we also will be my lord's bondmen.

01:044:010 And he said, Now also let it be according unto your words: he
with whom it is found shall be my servant; and ye shall be blameless.

01:044:011 Then they speedily took down every man his sack to the
ground, and opened every man his sack.

01:044:012 And he searched, and began at the eldest, and left at the
youngest: and the cup was found in Benjamin's sack.

01:044:013 Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass,
and returned to the city.

01:044:014 And Judah and his brethren came to Joseph's house; for he was
yet there: and they fell before him on the ground.

01:044:015 And Joseph said unto them, What deed is this that ye have
done? wot ye not that such a man as I can certainly divine?

01:044:016 And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we
speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the iniquity
of thy servants: behold, we are my lord's servants, both we, and he also
with whom the cup is found.

01:044:017 And he said, God forbid that I should do so: but the man in
whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, get
you up in peace unto your father.

01:044:018 Then Judah came near unto him, and said, Oh my lord, let thy
servant, I pray thee, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not thine
anger burn against thy servant: for thou art even as Pharaoh.

01:044:019 My lord asked his servants, saying, Have ye a father, or a
brother?

01:044:020 And we said unto my lord, We have a father, an old man, and a
child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he
alone is left of his mother, and his father loveth him.

01:044:021 And thou saidst unto thy servants, Bring him down unto me,
that I may set mine eyes upon him.

01:044:022 And we said unto my lord, The lad cannot leave his father:
for if he should leave his father, his father would die.

01:044:023 And thou saidst unto thy servants, Except your youngest
brother come down with you, ye shall see my face no more.

01:044:024 And it came to pass when we came up unto thy servant my
father, we told him the words of my lord.

01:044:025 And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food.

01:044:026 And we said, We cannot go down: if our youngest brother be
with us, then will we go down: for we may not see the man's face, except
our youngest brother be with us.

01:044:027 And thy servant my father said unto us, Ye know that my wife
bare me two sons:

01:044:028 And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn
in pieces; and I saw him not since:

01:044:029 And if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, ye
shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.

01:044:030 Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, and the
lad be not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life;

01:044:031 It shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with
us, that he will die: and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs
of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave.

01:044:032 For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father,
saying, If I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my
father for ever.

01:044:033 Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant abide instead of
the lad a bondman to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brethren.

01:044:034 For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with
me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.

01:045:001 Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that
stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there
stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his
brethren.

01:045:002 And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh
heard.

01:045:003 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my
father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were
troubled at his presence.

01:045:004 And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray
you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye
sold into Egypt.

01:045:005 Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that
ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.

01:045:006 For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet
there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor
harvest.

01:045:007 And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the
earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

01:045:008 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he
hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler
throughout all the land of Egypt.

01:045:009 Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus
saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto
me, tarry not:

01:045:010 And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be
near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children's children, and
thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast:

01:045:011 And there will I nourish thee; for yet there are five years
of famine; lest thou, and thy household, and all that thou hast, come to
poverty.

01:045:012 And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother
Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you.

01:045:013 And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of
all that ye have seen; and ye shall haste and bring down my father
hither.

01:045:014 And he fell upon his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept; and
Benjamin wept upon his neck.

01:045:015 Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them: and
after that his brethren talked with him.

01:045:016 And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying,
Joseph's brethren are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his
servants.

01:045:017 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Say unto thy brethren, This do
ye; lade your beasts, and go, get you unto the land of Canaan;

01:045:018 And take your father and your households, and come unto me:
and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the
fat of the land.

01:045:019 Now thou art commanded, this do ye; take you wagons out of
the land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring
your father, and come.

01:045:020 Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of
Egypt is your's.

01:045:021 And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them
wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision
for the way.

01:045:022 To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to
Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of
raiment.

01:045:023 And to his father he sent after this manner; ten asses laden
with the good things of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corn and
bread and meat for his father by the way.

01:045:024 So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and he said
unto them, See that ye fall not out by the way.

01:045:025 And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of
Canaan unto Jacob their father,

01:045:026 And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor
over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob's heart fainted, for he believed
them not.

01:045:027 And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said
unto them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry
him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived:

01:045:028 And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I
will go and see him before I die.

01:046:001 And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to
Beersheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac.

01:046:002 And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and
said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.

01:046:003 And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go
down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:

01:046:004 I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely
bring thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.

01:046:005 And Jacob rose up from Beersheba: and the sons of Israel
carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in
the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him.

01:046:006 And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had
gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his
seed with him:

01:046:007 His sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and his
sons' daughters, and all his seed brought he with him into Egypt.

01:046:008 And these are the names of the children of Israel, which came
into Egypt, Jacob and his sons: Reuben, Jacob's firstborn.

01:046:009 And the sons of Reuben; Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and
Carmi.

01:046:010 And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and
Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman.

01:046:011 And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.

01:046:012 And the sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Pharez,
and Zarah: but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan. And the sons of
Pharez were Hezron and Hamul.

01:046:013 And the sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and
Shimron.

01:046:014 And the sons of Zebulun; Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.

01:046:015 These be the sons of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob in
Padanaram, with his daughter Dinah: all the souls of his sons and his
daughters were thirty and three.

01:046:016 And the sons of Gad; Ziphion, and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon,
Eri, and Arodi, and Areli.

01:046:017 And the sons of Asher; Jimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and
Beriah, and Serah their sister: and the sons of Beriah; Heber, and
Malchiel.

01:046:018 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his
daughter, and these she bare unto Jacob, even sixteen souls.

01:046:019 The sons of Rachel Jacob's wife; Joseph, and Benjamin.

01:046:020 And unto Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and
Ephraim, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto
him.

01:046:021 And the sons of Benjamin were Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel,
Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard.

01:046:022 These are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob: all
the souls were fourteen.

01:046:023 And the sons of Dan; Hushim.

01:046:024 And the sons of Naphtali; Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer, and
Shillem.

01:046:025 These are the sons of Bilhah, which Laban gave unto Rachel
his daughter, and she bare these unto Jacob: all the souls were seven.

01:046:026 All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out
of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were threescore
and six;

01:046:027 And the sons of Joseph, which were born him in Egypt, were
two souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt,
were threescore and ten.

01:046:028 And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to direct his face
unto Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.

01:046:029 And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel
his father, to Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on
his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.

01:046:030 And Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have
seen thy face, because thou art yet alive.

01:046:031 And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father's
house, I will go up, and shew Pharaoh, and say unto him, My brethren,
and my father's house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto
me;

01:046:032 And the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed
cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all
that they have.

01:046:033 And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and
shall say, What is your occupation?

01:046:034 That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle
from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye
may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination
unto the Egyptians.

01:047:001 Then Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my
brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have, are
come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land of
Goshen.

01:047:002 And he took some of his brethren, even five men, and
presented them unto Pharaoh.

01:047:003 And Pharaoh said unto his brethren, What is your occupation?
And they said unto Pharaoh, Thy servants are shepherds, both we, and
also our fathers.

01:047:004 They said moreover unto Pharaoh, For to sojourn in the land
are we come; for thy servants have no pasture for their flocks; for the
famine is sore in the land of Canaan: now therefore, we pray thee, let
thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen.

01:047:005 And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy
brethren are come unto thee:

01:047:006 The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land
make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them
dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make
them rulers over my cattle.

01:047:007 And Joseph brought in Jacob his father, and set him before
Pharaoh: and Jacob blessed Pharaoh.

01:047:008 And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou?

01:047:009 And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my
pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days
of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the
years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.

01:047:010 And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.

01:047:011 And Joseph placed his father and his brethren, and gave them
a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land
of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.

01:047:012 And Joseph nourished his father, and his brethren, and all
his father's household, with bread, according to their families.

01:047:013 And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was
very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted
by reason of the famine.

01:047:014 And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the
land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they
bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.

01:047:015 And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land
of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread:
for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.

01:047:016 And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for
your cattle, if money fail.

01:047:017 And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave
them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the
cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for
all their cattle for that year.

01:047:018 When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year,
and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money
is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left
in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:

01:047:019 Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our
land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be
servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die,
that the land be not desolate.

01:047:020 And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the
Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over
them: so the land became Pharaoh's.

01:047:021 And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end
of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.

01:047:022 Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests
had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which
Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.

01:047:023 Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you
this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye
shall sow the land.

01:047:024 And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give
the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed
of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and
for food for your little ones.

01:047:025 And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace
in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's servants.

01:047:026 And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this
day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part, except the land of the
priests only, which became not Pharaoh's.

01:047:027 And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of
Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied
exceedingly.

01:047:028 And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the
whole age of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years.

01:047:029 And the time drew nigh that Israel must die: and he called
his son Joseph, and said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy
sight, put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and
truly with me; bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt:

01:047:030 But I will lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me out
of Egypt, and bury me in their buryingplace. And he said, I will do as
thou hast said.

01:047:031 And he said, Swear unto me. And he sware unto him. And Israel
bowed himself upon the bed's head.

01:048:001 And it came to pass after these things, that one told Joseph,
Behold, thy father is sick: and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh
and Ephraim.

01:048:002 And one told Jacob, and said, Behold, thy son Joseph cometh
unto thee: and Israel strengthened himself, and sat upon the bed.

01:048:003 And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me at
Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me,

01:048:004 And said unto me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and
multiply thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will
give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession.

01:048:005 And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born
unto thee in the land of Egypt before I came unto thee into Egypt, are
mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.

01:048:006 And thy issue, which thou begettest after them, shall be
thine, and shall be called after the name of their brethren in their
inheritance.

01:048:007 And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in
the land of Canaan in the way, when yet there was but a little way to
come unto Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath; the
same is Bethlehem.

01:048:008 And Israel beheld Joseph's sons, and said, Who are these?

01:048:009 And Joseph said unto his father, They are my sons, whom God
hath given me in this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray thee, unto
me, and I will bless them.

01:048:010 Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not
see. And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed them, and embraced
them.

01:048:011 And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy
face: and, lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed.

01:048:012 And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he
bowed himself with his face to the earth.

01:048:013 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward
Israel's left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel's right
hand, and brought them near unto him.

01:048:014 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon
Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's
head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.

01:048:015 And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers
Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto
this day,

01:048:016 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads;
and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and
Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.

01:048:017 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon
the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father's
hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head.

01:048:018 And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this
is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head.

01:048:019 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know
it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly
his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become
a multitude of nations.

01:048:020 And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel
bless, saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set
Ephraim before Manasseh.

01:048:021 And Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die: but God shall be
with you, and bring you again unto the land of your fathers.

01:048:022 Moreover I have given to thee one portion above thy brethren,
which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my
bow.

01:049:001 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves
together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last
days.

01:049:002 Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and
hearken unto Israel your father.

01:049:003 Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of
my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

01:049:004 Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest
up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

01:049:005 Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in
their habitations.

01:049:006 O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their
assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew
a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

01:049:007 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath,
for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in
Israel.

01:049:008 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand
shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow
down before thee.

01:049:009 Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone
up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall
rouse him up?

01:049:010 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from
between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of
the people be.

01:049:011 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the
choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the
blood of grapes:

01:049:012 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with
milk.

01:049:013 Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be
for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.

01:049:014 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

01:049:015 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was
pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto
tribute.

01:049:016 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

01:049:017 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that
biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

01:049:018 I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD.

01:049:019 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the
last.

01:049:020 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal
dainties.

01:049:021 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

01:049:022 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well;
whose branches run over the wall:

01:049:023 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and
hated him:

01:049:024 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were
made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the
shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

01:049:025 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by
the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above,
blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of
the womb:

01:049:026 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the
blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting
hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head
of him that was separate from his brethren.

01:049:027 Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall
devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.

01:049:028 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it
that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according
to his blessing he blessed them.

01:049:029 And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered
unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field
of Ephron the Hittite,

01:049:030 In the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is
before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field
of Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a buryingplace.

01:049:031 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they
buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah.

01:049:032 The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was
from the children of Heth.

01:049:033 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he
gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was
gathered unto his people.

01:050:001 And Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept upon him,
and kissed him.

01:050:002 And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm
his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel.

01:050:003 And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled
the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him
threescore and ten days.

01:050:004 And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spake
unto the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in your
eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,

01:050:005 My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which
I have digged for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me.
Now therefore let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will
come again.

01:050:006 And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as he
made thee swear.

01:050:007 And Joseph went up to bury his father: and with him went up
all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders
of the land of Egypt,

01:050:008 And all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his
father's house: only their little ones, and their flocks, and their
herds, they left in the land of Goshen.

01:050:009 And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it
was a very great company.

01:050:010 And they came to the threshingfloor of Atad, which is beyond
Jordan, and there they mourned with a great and very sore lamentation:
and he made a mourning for his father seven days.

01:050:011 And when the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the
mourning in the floor of Atad, they said, This is a grievous mourning to
the Egyptians: wherefore the name of it was called Abelmizraim, which is
beyond Jordan.

01:050:012 And his sons did unto him according as he commanded them:

01:050:013 For his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried
him in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the
field for a possession of a buryingplace of Ephron the Hittite, before
Mamre.

01:050:014 And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all
that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his
father.

01:050:015 And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead,
they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite
us all the evil which we did unto him.

01:050:016 And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did
command before he died, saying,

01:050:017 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the
trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil:
and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God
of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.

01:050:018 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and
they said, Behold, we be thy servants.

01:050:019 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of
God?

01:050:020 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it
unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people
alive.

01:050:021 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your
little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.

01:050:022 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and
Joseph lived an hundred and ten years.

01:050:023 And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation:
the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon
Joseph's knees.

01:050:024 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely
visit you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware
to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

01:050:025 And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying,
God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.

01:050:026 So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they
embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.



BOOK 02 Exodus


0$:001:001 Now these are the names of the children of
Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with
Jacob.

02:001:002 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,

02:001:003 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,

02:001:004 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

02:001:005 And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were
seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.

02:001:006 And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that
generation.

02:001:007 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased
abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was
filled with them.

02:001:008 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not
Joseph.

02:001:009 And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the
children of Israel are more and mightier than we:

02:001:010 Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply,
and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join
also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of
the land.

02:001:011 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them
with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom
and Raamses.

02:001:012 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied
and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.

02:001:013 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with
rigour:

02:001:014 And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in
morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all
their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.

02:001:015 And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which
the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:

02:001:016 And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew
women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill
him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.

02:001:017 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt
commanded them, but saved the men children alive.

02:001:018 And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto
them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children
alive?

02:001:019 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women
are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered
ere the midwives come in unto them.

02:001:020 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people
multiplied, and waxed very mighty.

02:001:021 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he
made them houses.

02:001:022 And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is
born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save
alive.

02:002:001 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a
daughter of Levi.

02:002:002 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him
that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.

02:002:003 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an
ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the
child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink.

02:002:004 And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to
him.

02:002:005 And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the
river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side; and when she
saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.

02:002:006 And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold,
the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of
the Hebrews' children.

02:002:007 Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and
call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child
for thee?

02:002:008 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and
called the child's mother.

02:002:009 And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away,
and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took
the child, and nursed it.

02:002:010 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's
daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she
said, Because I drew him out of the water.

02:002:011 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that
he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied
an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren.

02:002:012 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that
there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.

02:002:013 And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the
Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong,
Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?

02:002:014 And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us?
intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses
feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.

02:002:015 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses.
But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of
Midian: and he sat down by a well.

02:002:016 Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came
and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.

02:002:017 And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood
up and helped them, and watered their flock.

02:002:018 And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it
that ye are come so soon to day?

02:002:019 And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of
the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.

02:002:020 And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it
that ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread.

02:002:021 And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave
Moses Zipporah his daughter.

02:002:022 And she bare him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for
he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.

02:002:023 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of
Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage,
and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

02:002:024 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant
with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

02:002:025 And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had
respect unto them.

02:003:001 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the
priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert,
and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

02:003:002 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of
fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush
burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

02:003:003 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great
sight, why the bush is not burnt.

02:003:004 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called
unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he
said, Here am I.

02:003:005 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off
thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

02:003:006 Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of
Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face;
for he was afraid to look upon God.

02:003:007 And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my
people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their
taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;

02:003:008 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the
Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a
large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the
Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and
the Hivites, and the Jebusites.

02:003:009 Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is
come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the
Egyptians oppress them.

02:003:010 Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that
thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.

02:003:011 And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto
Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of
Egypt?

02:003:012 And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be
a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth
the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.

02:003:013 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the
children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers
hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what
shall I say unto them?

02:003:014 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus
shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

02:003:015 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto
the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of
Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you:
this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

02:003:016 Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto
them, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of
Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen
that which is done to you in Egypt:

02:003:017 And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of
Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the
Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, unto a
land flowing with milk and honey.

02:003:018 And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come,
thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say
unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now let us
go, we beseech thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we
may sacrifice to the LORD our God.

02:003:019 And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no,
not by a mighty hand.

02:003:020 And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my
wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let
you go.

02:003:021 And I will give this people favour in the sight of the
Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go
empty.

02:003:022 But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her
that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and
raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters;
and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.

02:004:001 And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not
believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath
not appeared unto thee.

02:004:002 And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And
he said, A rod.

02:004:003 And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the
ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.

02:004:004 And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take
it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became
a rod in his hand:

02:004:005 That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the
God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared
unto thee.

02:004:006 And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand
into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it
out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.

02:004:007 And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put
his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and,
behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.

02:004:008 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee,
neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe
the voice of the latter sign.

02:004:009 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also
these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of
the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water
which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land.

02:004:010 And Moses said unto the LORD, O my LORD, I am not eloquent,
neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I
am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.

02:004:011 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who
maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the
LORD?

02:004:012 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach
thee what thou shalt say.

02:004:013 And he said, O my LORD, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him
whom thou wilt send.

02:004:014 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he
said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak
well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth
thee, he will be glad in his heart.

02:004:015 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth:
and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you
what ye shall do.

02:004:016 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall
be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to
him instead of God.

02:004:017 And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou
shalt do signs.

02:004:018 And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and
said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren which
are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro said to
Moses, Go in peace.

02:004:019 And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian, Go, return into
Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought thy life.

02:004:020 And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an
ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of God
in his hand.

02:004:021 And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into
Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have
put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let
the people go.

02:004:022 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel
is my son, even my firstborn:

02:004:023 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and
if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy
firstborn.

02:004:024 And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met
him, and sought to kill him.

02:004:025 Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of
her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art
thou to me.

02:004:026 So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art,
because of the circumcision.

02:004:027 And the LORD said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet
Moses. And he went, and met him in the mount of God, and kissed him.

02:004:028 And Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD who had sent
him, and all the signs which he had commanded him.

02:004:029 And Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders
of the children of Israel:

02:004:030 And Aaron spake all the words which the LORD had spoken unto
Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.

02:004:031 And the people believed: and when they heard that the LORD
had visited the children of Israel, and that he had looked upon their
affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.

02:005:001 And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus
saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a
feast unto me in the wilderness.

02:005:002 And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his
voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel
go.

02:005:003 And they said, The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let
us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the desert, and sacrifice
unto the LORD our God; lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the
sword.

02:005:004 And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses
and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your burdens.

02:005:005 And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are
many, and ye make them rest from their burdens.

02:005:006 And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the
people, and their officers, saying,

02:005:007 Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as
heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.

02:005:008 And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore,
ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be
idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.

02:005:009 Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may
labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.

02:005:010 And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their
officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I
will not give you straw.

02:005:011 Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of
your work shall be diminished.

02:005:012 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land
of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.

02:005:013 And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works,
your daily tasks, as when there was straw.

02:005:014 And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's
taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have
ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as
heretofore?

02:005:015 Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried
unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?

02:005:016 There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to
us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault is
in thine own people.

02:005:017 But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let
us go and do sacrifice to the LORD.

02:005:018 Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given
you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks.

02:005:019 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they
were in evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish ought from
your bricks of your daily task.

02:005:020 And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they
came forth from Pharaoh:

02:005:021 And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you, and judge;
because ye have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh,
and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay
us.

02:005:022 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, LORD, wherefore
hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent
me?

02:005:023 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath
done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.

02:006:001 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will
do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a
strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.

02:006:002 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:

02:006:003 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by
the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to
them.

02:006:004 And I have also established my covenant with them, to give
them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were
strangers.

02:006:005 And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel,
whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant.

02:006:006 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and
I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will
rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out
arm, and with great judgments:

02:006:007 And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you
a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you
out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.

02:006:008 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I
did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give
it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.

02:006:009 And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they
hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.

02:006:010 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:006:011 Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the
children of Israel go out of his land.

02:006:012 And Moses spake before the LORD, saying, Behold, the children
of Israel have not hearkened unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me,
who am of uncircumcised lips?

02:006:013 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, and gave them a
charge unto the children of Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, to
bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.

02:006:014 These be the heads of their fathers' houses: The sons of
Reuben the firstborn of Israel; Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi:
these be the families of Reuben.

02:006:015 And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and
Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman: these are
the families of Simeon.

02:006:016 And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to
their generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari: and the years of the
life of Levi were an hundred thirty and seven years.

02:006:017 The sons of Gershon; Libni, and Shimi, according to their
families.

02:006:018 And the sons of Kohath; Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and
Uzziel: and the years of the life of Kohath were an hundred thirty and
three years.

02:006:019 And the sons of Merari; Mahali and Mushi: these are the
families of Levi according to their generations.

02:006:020 And Amram took him Jochebed his father's sister to wife; and
she bare him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram were an
hundred and thirty and seven years.

02:006:021 And the sons of Izhar; Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri.

02:006:022 And the sons of Uzziel; Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Zithri.

02:006:023 And Aaron took him Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab, sister of
Naashon, to wife; and she bare him Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and
Ithamar.

02:006:024 And the sons of Korah; Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph:
these are the families of the Korhites.

02:006:025 And Eleazar Aaron's son took him one of the daughters of
Putiel to wife; and she bare him Phinehas: these are the heads of the
fathers of the Levites according to their families.

02:006:026 These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom the LORD said, Bring
out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their
armies.

02:006:027 These are they which spake to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring
out the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that Moses and Aaron.

02:006:028 And it came to pass on the day when the LORD spake unto Moses
in the land of Egypt,

02:006:029 That the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, I am the LORD: speak
thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say unto thee.

02:006:030 And Moses said before the LORD, Behold, I am of uncircumcised
lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?

02:007:001 And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to
Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.

02:007:002 Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy
brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel
out of his land.

02:007:003 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and
my wonders in the land of Egypt.

02:007:004 But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my
hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the children
of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.

02:007:005 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I
stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel
from among them.

02:007:006 And Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded them, so did
they.

02:007:007 And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and
three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.

02:007:008 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

02:007:009 When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for
you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before
Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.

02:007:010 And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as
the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and
before his servants, and it became a serpent.

02:007:011 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now
the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their
enchantments.

02:007:012 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became
serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.

02:007:013 And he hardened Pharaoh's heart, that he hearkened not unto
them; as the LORD had said.

02:007:014 And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh's heart is hardened, he
refuseth to let the people go.

02:007:015 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; lo, he goeth out unto
the water; and thou shalt stand by the river's brink against he come;
and the rod which was turned to a serpent shalt thou take in thine hand.

02:007:016 And thou shalt say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath
sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in
the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not hear.

02:007:017 Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the
LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the
waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.

02:007:018 And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river
shall stink; and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of the water of the
river.

02:007:019 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod,
and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams,
upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of
water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood
throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in
vessels of stone.

02:007:020 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he
lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the
sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters
that were in the river were turned to blood.

02:007:021 And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank,
and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there
was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.

02:007:022 And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments:
and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as
the LORD had said.

02:007:023 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he
set his heart to this also.

02:007:024 And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water
to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river.

02:007:025 And seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had
smitten the river.

02:008:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto
him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

02:008:002 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all
thy borders with frogs:

02:008:003 And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall
go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy
bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into
thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs:

02:008:004 And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy
people, and upon all thy servants.

02:008:005 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth
thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the
ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.

02:008:006 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt;
and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.

02:008:007 And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought
up frogs upon the land of Egypt.

02:008:008 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat
the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people;
and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the LORD.

02:008:009 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I
intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy
the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river
only?

02:008:010 And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy
word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our
God.

02:008:011 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses,
and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the
river only.

02:008:012 And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried
unto the LORD because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh.

02:008:013 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and the
frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the
fields.

02:008:014 And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land
stank.

02:008:015 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his
heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

02:008:016 And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy
rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout
all the land of Egypt.

02:008:017 And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his
rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in
beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of
Egypt.

02:008:018 And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring
forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon
beast.

02:008:019 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of
God: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them;
as the LORD had said.

02:008:020 And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning,
and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto
him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

02:008:021 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send
swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people,
and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of
swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

02:008:022 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my
people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou
mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.

02:008:023 And I will put a division between my people and thy people:
to morrow shall this sign be.

02:008:024 And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies
into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses, and into all
the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of
flies.

02:008:025 And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye,
sacrifice to your God in the land.

02:008:026 And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall
sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the LORD our God: lo,
shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes,
and will they not stone us?

02:008:027 We will go three days' journey into the wilderness, and
sacrifice to the LORD our God, as he shall command us.

02:008:028 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to
the LORD your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away:
intreat for me.

02:008:029 And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will
intreat the LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from
his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal
deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the
LORD.

02:008:030 And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.

02:008:031 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and he
removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from
his people; there remained not one.

02:008:032 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither
would he let the people go.

02:009:001 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell
him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they
may serve me.

02:009:002 For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,

02:009:003 Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon thy cattle which is in
the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the
oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.

02:009:004 And the LORD shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the
cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the
children's of Israel.

02:009:005 And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the LORD
shall do this thing in the land.

02:009:006 And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle
of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.

02:009:007 And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the
cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened,
and he did not let the people go.

02:009:008 And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you
handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the
heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.

02:009:009 And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and
shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast,
throughout all the land of Egypt.

02:009:010 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh;
and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking
forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.

02:009:011 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the
boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians.

02:009:012 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened
not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.

02:009:013 And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning,
and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of
the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

02:009:014 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart,
and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that
there is none like me in all the earth.

02:009:015 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and
thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.

02:009:016 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to
shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all
the earth.

02:009:017 As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou
wilt not let them go?

02:009:018 Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a
very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation
thereof even until now.

02:009:019 Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou
hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in
the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon
them, and they shall die.

02:009:020 He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of
Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:

02:009:021 And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his
servants and his cattle in the field.

02:009:022 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward
heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and
upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of
Egypt.

02:009:023 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD
sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the
LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

02:009:024 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very
grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since
it became a nation.

02:009:025 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that
was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of
the field, and brake every tree of the field.

02:009:026 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel
were, was there no hail.

02:009:027 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said
unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my
people are wicked.

02:009:028 Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more
mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no
longer.

02:009:029 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the
city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the thunder shall
cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how
that the earth is the LORD's.

02:009:030 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet
fear the LORD God.

02:009:031 And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was
in the ear, and the flax was bolled.

02:009:032 But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were not
grown up.

02:009:033 And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread
abroad his hands unto the LORD: and the thunders and hail ceased, and
the rain was not poured upon the earth.

02:009:034 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the
thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and
his servants.

02:009:035 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let
the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by Moses.

02:010:001 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have
hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew
these my signs before him:

02:010:002 And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy
son's son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I
have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the LORD.

02:010:003 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him,
Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to
humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.

02:010:004 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow
will I bring the locusts into thy coast:

02:010:005 And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot
be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which
is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every
tree which groweth for you out of the field:

02:010:006 And they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy
servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither thy
fathers, nor thy fathers' fathers have seen, since the day that they
were upon the earth unto this day. And he turned himself, and went out
from Pharaoh.

02:010:007 And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this man
be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the LORD their
God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

02:010:008 And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he
said unto them, Go, serve the LORD your God: but who are they that shall
go?

02:010:009 And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old,
with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds
will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the LORD.

02:010:010 And he said unto them, Let the LORD be so with you, as I will
let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.

02:010:011 Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the LORD; for that
ye did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.

02:010:012 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the
land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of
Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath left.

02:010:013 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and
the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that
night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.

02:010:014 And the locust went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested
in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there
were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.

02:010:015 For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the
land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the
fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any
green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the
land of Egypt.

02:010:016 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he
said, I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you.

02:010:017 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once,
and intreat the LORD your God, that he may take away from me this death
only.

02:010:018 And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.

02:010:019 And the LORD turned a mighty strong west wind, which took
away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one
locust in all the coasts of Egypt.

02:010:020 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not
let the children of Israel go.

02:010:021 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward
heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness
which may be felt.

02:010:022 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there
was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:

02:010:023 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for
three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

02:010:024 And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the
LORD; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little
ones also go with you.

02:010:025 And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt
offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the LORD our God.

02:010:026 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be
left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the LORD our God; and we
know not with what we must serve the LORD, until we come thither.

02:010:027 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let
them go.

02:010:028 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to
thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou
shalt die.

02:010:029 And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face
again no more.

02:011:001 And the LORD said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague
more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence:
when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence
altogether.

02:011:002 Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow
of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver and
jewels of gold.

02:011:003 And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the
Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt,
in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people.

02:011:004 And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go
out into the midst of Egypt:

02:011:005 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from
the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the
firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the
firstborn of beasts.

02:011:006 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of
Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.

02:011:007 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog
move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the
LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

02:011:008 And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow
down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people that
follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh
in a great anger.

02:011:009 And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto
you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.

02:011:010 And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and
the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children
of Israel go out of his land.

02:012:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt
saying,

02:012:002 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it
shall be the first month of the year to you.

02:012:003 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the
tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb,
according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

02:012:004 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and
his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the
souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the
lamb.

02:012:005 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year:
ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

02:012:006 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same
month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill
it in the evening.

02:012:007 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two
side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall
eat it.

02:012:008 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire,
and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

02:012:009 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast
with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.

02:012:010 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and
that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

02:012:011 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes
on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste:
it is the LORD's passover.

02:012:012 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and
will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast;
and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the
LORD.

02:012:013 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses
where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the
plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of
Egypt.

02:012:014 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall
keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep
it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

02:012:015 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day
ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth
leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall
be cut off from Israel.

02:012:016 And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and
in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner
of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that
only may be done of you.

02:012:017 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in
this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt:
therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance
for ever.

02:012:018 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at
even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of
the month at even.

02:012:019 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for
whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off
from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in
the land.

02:012:020 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall
ye eat unleavened bread.

02:012:021 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto
them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill
the passover.

02:012:022 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood
that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with
the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door
of his house until the morning.

02:012:023 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and
when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the
LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come
in unto your houses to smite you.

02:012:024 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and
to thy sons for ever.

02:012:025 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which
the LORD will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall
keep this service.

02:012:026 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto
you, What mean ye by this service?

02:012:027 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD's
passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt,
when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people
bowed the head and worshipped.

02:012:028 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the LORD had
commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

02:012:029 And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the
firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat
on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon;
and all the firstborn of cattle.

02:012:030 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants,
and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was
not a house where there was not one dead.

02:012:031 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise
up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of
Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.

02:012:032 Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be
gone; and bless me also.

02:012:033 And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they
might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead
men.

02:012:034 And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their
kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders.

02:012:035 And the children of Israel did according to the word of
Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels
of gold, and raiment:

02:012:036 And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the
Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And
they spoiled the Egyptians.

02:012:037 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth,
about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children.

02:012:038 And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and
herds, even very much cattle.

02:012:039 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they
brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were
thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for
themselves any victual.

02:012:040 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in
Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.

02:012:041 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty
years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the
LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

02:012:042 It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing
them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the LORD to be
observed of all the children of Israel in their generations.

02:012:043 And the LORD said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance
of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:

02:012:044 But every man's servant that is bought for money, when thou
hast circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.

02:012:045 A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.

02:012:046 In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth
ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a
bone thereof.

02:012:047 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.

02:012:048 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep
the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let
him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the
land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.

02:012:049 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the
stranger that sojourneth among you.

02:012:050 Thus did all the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded
Moses and Aaron, so did they.

02:012:051 And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the LORD did bring
the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.

02:013:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:013:002 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the
womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.

02:013:003 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which
ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of
hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened
bread be eaten.

02:013:004 This day came ye out in the month Abib.

02:013:005 And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land
of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites,
and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land
flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep this service in this
month.

02:013:006 Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the
seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD.

02:013:007 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall
no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen
with thee in all thy quarters.

02:013:008 And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done
because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of
Egypt.

02:013:009 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for
a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD's law may be in thy mouth:
for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.

02:013:010 Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from
year to year.

02:013:011 And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land
of the Canaanites, as he sware unto thee and to thy fathers, and shall
give it thee,

02:013:012 That thou shalt set apart unto the LORD all that openeth the
matrix, and every firstling that cometh of a beast which thou hast; the
males shall be the LORD's.

02:013:013 And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb;
and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break his neck: and all
the firstborn of man among thy children shalt thou redeem.

02:013:014 And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come,
saying, What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand
the LORD brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:

02:013:015 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go,
that the LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the
firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to
the LORD all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn
of my children I redeem.

02:013:016 And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for
frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the LORD brought
us forth out of Egypt.

02:013:017 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that
God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines,
although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people
repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt:

02:013:018 But God led the people about, through the way of the
wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed
out of the land of Egypt.

02:013:019 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had
straitly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit
you; and ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you.

02:013:020 And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in
Etham, in the edge of the wilderness.

02:013:021 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud,
to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them
light; to go by day and night:

02:013:022 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the
pillar of fire by night, from before the people.

02:014:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:014:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp
before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon:
before it shall ye encamp by the sea.

02:014:003 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are
entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.

02:014:004 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that he shall follow after
them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that
the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD. And they did so.

02:014:005 And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and
the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people,
and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from
serving us?

02:014:006 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:

02:014:007 And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots
of Egypt, and captains over every one of them.

02:014:008 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and
he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went
out with an high hand.

02:014:009 But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and
chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them
encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.

02:014:010 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up
their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were
sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the LORD.

02:014:011 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in
Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast
thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

02:014:012 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying,
Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better
for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the
wilderness.

02:014:013 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and
see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the
Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for
ever.

02:014:014 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

02:014:015 And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me?
speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:

02:014:016 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the
sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground
through the midst of the sea.

02:014:017 And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and
they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon
all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

02:014:018 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have
gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

02:014:019 And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel,
removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from
before their face, and stood behind them:

02:014:020 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of
Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by
night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.

02:014:021 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD
caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made
the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.

02:014:022 And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea
upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right
hand, and on their left.

02:014:023 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the
midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his
horsemen.

02:014:024 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD
looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of
the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,

02:014:025 And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them
heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of
Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians.

02:014:026 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the
sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their
chariots, and upon their horsemen.

02:014:027 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea
returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians
fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of
the sea.

02:014:028 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the
horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them;
there remained not so much as one of them.

02:014:029 But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst
of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand,
and on their left.

02:014:030 Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the
Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.

02:014:031 And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the
Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and
his servant Moses.

02:015:001 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the
LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath
triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the
sea.

02:015:002 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my
salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my
father's God, and I will exalt him.

02:015:003 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.

02:015:004 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea:
his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.

02:015:005 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a
stone.

02:015:006 Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy
right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

02:015:007 And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown
them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which
consumed them as stubble.

02:015:008 And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered
together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were
congealed in the heart of the sea.

02:015:009 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide
the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword,
my hand shall destroy them.

02:015:010 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they
sank as lead in the mighty waters.

02:015:011 Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like
thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

02:015:012 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed
them.

02:015:013 Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast
redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy
habitation.

02:015:014 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold
on the inhabitants of Palestina.

02:015:015 Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of
Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan
shall melt away.

02:015:016 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of
thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over,
O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

02:015:017 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of
thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee
to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which thy hands have established.

02:015:018 The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.

02:015:019 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with
his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the
sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst
of the sea.

02:015:020 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a
timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels
and with dances.

02:015:021 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath
triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the
sea.

02:015:022 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out
into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness,
and found no water.

02:015:023 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the
waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was
called Marah.

02:015:024 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we
drink?

02:015:025 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree,
which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet:
there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved
them,

02:015:026 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the
LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt
give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none
of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians:
for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

02:015:027 And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and
threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.

02:016:001 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the
congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin,
which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second
month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.

02:016:002 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured
against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:

02:016:003 And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we
had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by
the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have
brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with
hunger.

02:016:004 Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from
heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate
every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or
no.

02:016:005 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall
prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they
gather daily.

02:016:006 And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At
even, then ye shall know that the LORD hath brought you out from the
land of Egypt:

02:016:007 And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the LORD;
for that he heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and what are we,
that ye murmur against us?

02:016:008 And Moses said, This shall be, when the LORD shall give you
in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for
that the LORD heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and
what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against the LORD.

02:016:009 And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of
the children of Israel, Come near before the LORD: for he hath heard
your murmurings.

02:016:010 And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole
congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the
wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud.

02:016:011 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:016:012 I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak
unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye
shall be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I am the LORD your
God.

02:016:013 And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and
covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host.

02:016:014 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face
of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar
frost on the ground.

02:016:015 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to
another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto
them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat.

02:016:016 This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather of it
every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to
the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his
tents.

02:016:017 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more,
some less.

02:016:018 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much
had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered
every man according to his eating.

02:016:019 And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.

02:016:020 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of
them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and
Moses was wroth with them.

02:016:021 And they gathered it every morning, every man according to
his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.

02:016:022 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered
twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the
congregation came and told Moses.

02:016:023 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said,
To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which
ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which
remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

02:016:024 And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it
did not stink, neither was there any worm therein.

02:016:025 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto
the LORD: to day ye shall not find it in the field.

02:016:026 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is
the sabbath, in it there shall be none.

02:016:027 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people
on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.

02:016:028 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my
commandments and my laws?

02:016:029 See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore
he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man
in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.

02:016:030 So the people rested on the seventh day.

02:016:031 And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it
was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made
with honey.

02:016:032 And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commandeth,
Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see
the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you
forth from the land of Egypt.

02:016:033 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full
of manna therein, and lay it up before the LORD, to be kept for your
generations.

02:016:034 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the
Testimony, to be kept.

02:016:035 And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until
they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto
the borders of the land of Canaan.

02:016:036 Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.

02:017:001 And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed
from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the
commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water
for the people to drink.

02:017:002 Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us
water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me?
wherefore do ye tempt the LORD?

02:017:003 And the people thirsted there for water; and the people
murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast
brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle
with thirst?

02:017:004 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, What shall I do unto
this people? they be almost ready to stone me.

02:017:005 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and
take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou
smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.

02:017:006 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in
Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of
it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the
elders of Israel.

02:017:007 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah,
because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they
tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?

02:017:008 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.

02:017:009 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out,
fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with
the rod of God in mine hand.

02:017:010 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with
Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.

02:017:011 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel
prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.

02:017:012 But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it
under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands,
the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands
were steady until the going down of the sun.

02:017:013 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of
the sword.

02:017:014 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a
book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out
the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.

02:017:015 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it
Jehovahnissi:

02:017:016 For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will
have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

02:018:001 When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father in law,
heard of all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, and
that the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt;

02:018:002 Then Jethro, Moses' father in law, took Zipporah, Moses'
wife, after he had sent her back,

02:018:003 And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom;
for he said, I have been an alien in a strange land:

02:018:004 And the name of the other was Eliezer; for the God of my
father, said he, was mine help, and delivered me from the sword of
Pharaoh:

02:018:005 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, came with his sons and his
wife unto Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at the mount of
God:

02:018:006 And he said unto Moses, I thy father in law Jethro am come
unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her.

02:018:007 And Moses went out to meet his father in law, and did
obeisance, and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare;
and they came into the tent.

02:018:008 And Moses told his father in law all that the LORD had done
unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, and all the travail
that had come upon them by the way, and how the LORD delivered them.

02:018:009 And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the LORD had
done to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians.

02:018:010 And Jethro said, Blessed be the LORD, who hath delivered you
out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh, who
hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.

02:018:011 Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods: for in the
thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.

02:018:012 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, took a burnt offering and
sacrifices for God: and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel, to eat
bread with Moses' father in law before God.

02:018:013 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge
the people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto the
evening.

02:018:014 And when Moses' father in law saw all that he did to the
people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? why
sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people stand by thee from
morning unto even?

02:018:015 And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people
come unto me to enquire of God:

02:018:016 When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge
between one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of God,
and his laws.

02:018:017 And Moses' father in law said unto him, The thing that thou
doest is not good.

02:018:018 Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that
is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to
perform it thyself alone.

02:018:019 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God
shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest
bring the causes unto God:

02:018:020 And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew
them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.

02:018:021 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men,
such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over
them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of
fifties, and rulers of tens:

02:018:022 And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall
be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small
matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they
shall bear the burden with thee.

02:018:023 If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then
thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their
place in peace.

02:018:024 So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and did
all that he had said.

02:018:025 And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them
heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers
of fifties, and rulers of tens.

02:018:026 And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes
they brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves.

02:018:027 And Moses let his father in law depart; and he went his way
into his own land.

02:019:001 In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone
forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the
wilderness of Sinai.

02:019:002 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the
desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel
camped before the mount.

02:019:003 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out
of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and
tell the children of Israel;

02:019:004 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare
you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

02:019:005 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my
covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people:
for all the earth is mine:

02:019:006 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy
nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of
Israel.

02:019:007 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and
laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him.

02:019:008 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the
LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people
unto the LORD.

02:019:009 And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick
cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee
for ever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the LORD.

02:019:010 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and
sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes,

02:019:011 And be ready against the third day: for the third day the
LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

02:019:012 And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about,
saying, Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or
touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put
to death:

02:019:013 There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be
stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live:
when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.

02:019:014 And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and
sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes.

02:019:015 And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day:
come not at your wives.

02:019:016 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that
there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount,
and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that
was in the camp trembled.

02:019:017 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet
with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.

02:019:018 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD
descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke
of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

02:019:019 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed
louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

02:019:020 And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the
mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses
went up.

02:019:021 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people,
lest they break through unto the LORD to gaze, and many of them perish.

02:019:022 And let the priests also, which come near to the LORD,
sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them.

02:019:023 And Moses said unto the LORD, The people cannot come up to
mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount,
and sanctify it.

02:019:024 And the LORD said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou
shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and
the people break through to come up unto the LORD, lest he break forth
upon them.

02:019:025 So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them.

02:020:001 And God spake all these words, saying,

02:020:002 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the
land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

02:020:003 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

02:020:004 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any
likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth
beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

02:020:005 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for
I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them
that hate me;

02:020:006 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and
keep my commandments.

02:020:007 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for
the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

02:020:008 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

02:020:009 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

02:020:010 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it
thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy
manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that
is within thy gates:

02:020:011 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and
all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD
blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

02:020:012 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long
upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

02:020:013 Thou shalt not kill.

02:020:014 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

02:020:015 Thou shalt not steal.

02:020:016 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

02:020:017 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not
covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor
his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

02:020:018 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings,
and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the
people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.

02:020:019 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will
hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.

02:020:020 And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to
prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.

02:020:021 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the
thick darkness where God was.

02:020:022 And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the
children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from
heaven.

02:020:023 Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye
make unto you gods of gold.

02:020:024 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt
sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy
sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come
unto thee, and I will bless thee.

02:020:025 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not
build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast
polluted it.

02:020:026 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy
nakedness be not discovered thereon.

02:021:001 Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them.

02:021:002 If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and
in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.

02:021:003 If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he
were married, then his wife shall go out with him.

02:021:004 If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him
sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and
he shall go out by himself.

02:021:005 And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my
wife, and my children; I will not go out free:

02:021:006 Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall
also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall
bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.

02:021:007 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall
not go out as the menservants do.

02:021:008 If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to
himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange
nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with
her.

02:021:009 And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with
her after the manner of daughters.

02:021:010 If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her
duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.

02:021:011 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out
free without money.

02:021:012 He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to
death.

02:021:013 And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his
hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee.

02:021:014 But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbour, to slay
him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.

02:021:015 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be
surely put to death.

02:021:016 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be
found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

02:021:017 And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely
be put to death.

02:021:018 And if men strive together, and one smite another with a
stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his bed:

02:021:019 If he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall
he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time,
and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.

02:021:020 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and
he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished.

02:021:021 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be
punished: for he is his money.

02:021:022 If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit
depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely
punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he
shall pay as the judges determine.

02:021:023 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for
life,

02:021:024 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,

02:021:025 Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.

02:021:026 And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his
maid, that it perish; he shall let him go free for his eye's sake.

02:021:027 And if he smite out his manservant's tooth, or his
maidservant's tooth; he shall let him go free for his tooth's sake.

02:021:028 If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox
shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner
of the ox shall be quit.

02:021:029 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past,
and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in,
but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and
his owner also shall be put to death.

02:021:030 If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give
for the ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.

02:021:031 Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter,
according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.

02:021:032 If the ox shall push a manservant or a maidservant; he shall
give unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be
stoned.

02:021:033 And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit,
and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein;

02:021:034 The owner of the pit shall make it good, and give money unto
the owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his.

02:021:035 And if one man's ox hurt another's, that he die; then they
shall sell the live ox, and divide the money of it; and the dead ox also
they shall divide.

02:021:036 Or if it be known that the ox hath used to push in time past,
and his owner hath not kept him in; he shall surely pay ox for ox; and
the dead shall be his own.

02:022:001 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell
it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.

02:022:002 If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die,
there shall no blood be shed for him.

02:022:003 If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for
him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he
shall be sold for his theft.

02:022:004 If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it
be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.

02:022:005 If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and
shall put in his beast, and shall feed in another man's field; of the
best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he
make restitution.

02:022:006 If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the stacks of
corn, or the standing corn, or the field, be consumed therewith; he that
kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.

02:022:007 If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to
keep, and it be stolen out of the man's house; if the thief be found,
let him pay double.

02:022:008 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall
be brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his
neighbour's goods.

02:022:009 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass,
for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing which another
challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the
judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his
neighbour.

02:022:010 If a man deliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a
sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no
man seeing it:

02:022:011 Then shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he
hath not put his hand unto his neighbour's goods; and the owner of it
shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.

02:022:012 And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto
the owner thereof.

02:022:013 If it be torn in pieces, then let him bring it for witness,
and he shall not make good that which was torn.

02:022:014 And if a man borrow ought of his neighbour, and it be hurt,
or die, the owner thereof being not with it, he shall surely make it
good.

02:022:015 But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it
good: if it be an hired thing, it came for his hire.

02:022:016 And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie
with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.

02:022:017 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall
pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

02:022:018 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.

02:022:019 Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.

02:022:020 He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the LORD only, he
shall be utterly destroyed.

02:022:021 Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye
were strangers in the land of Egypt.

02:022:022 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.

02:022:023 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto
me, I will surely hear their cry;

02:022:024 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the
sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.

02:022:025 If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee,
thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him
usury.

02:022:026 If thou at all take thy neighbour's raiment to pledge, thou
shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:

02:022:027 For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his
skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth
unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.

02:022:028 Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy
people.

02:022:029 Thou shalt not delay to offer the first of thy ripe fruits,
and of thy liquors: the firstborn of thy sons shalt thou give unto me.

02:022:030 Likewise shalt thou do with thine oxen, and with thy sheep:
seven days it shall be with his dam; on the eighth day thou shalt give
it me.

02:022:031 And ye shall be holy men unto me: neither shall ye eat any
flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; ye shall cast it to the dogs.

02:023:001 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with
the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

02:023:002 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt
thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:

02:023:003 Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.

02:023:004 If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his ass going astray, thou
shalt surely bring it back to him again.

02:023:005 If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his
burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt surely help with
him.

02:023:006 Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.

02:023:007 Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and
righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.

02:023:008 And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise,
and perverteth the words of the righteous.

02:023:009 Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart
of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

02:023:010 And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in
the fruits thereof:

02:023:011 But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still;
that the poor of thy people may eat: and what they leave the beasts of
the field shall eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard,
and with thy oliveyard.

02:023:012 Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou
shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy
handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.

02:023:013 And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect:
and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard
out of thy mouth.

02:023:014 Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.

02:023:015 Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt
eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time
appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and
none shall appear before me empty:)

02:023:016 And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours,
which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which
is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of
the field.

02:023:017 Three items in the year all thy males shall appear before the
LORD God.

02:023:018 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened
bread; neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain until the morning.

02:023:019 The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring
into the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his
mother's milk.

02:023:020 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way,
and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

02:023:021 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he
will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.

02:023:022 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I
speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto
thine adversaries.

02:023:023 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto
the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites,
the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.

02:023:024 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do
after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite
break down their images.

02:023:025 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy
bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of
thee.

02:023:026 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy
land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

02:023:027 I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the
people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn
their backs unto thee.

02:023:028 And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out
the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.

02:023:029 I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest
the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against
thee.

02:023:030 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee,
until thou be increased, and inherit the land.

02:023:031 And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea
of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will
deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive
them out before thee.

02:023:032 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.

02:023:033 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.

02:024:001 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and
Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and
worship ye afar off.

02:024:002 And Moses alone shall come near the LORD: but they shall not
come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.

02:024:003 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD,
and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and
said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do.

02:024:004 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early
in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars,
according to the twelve tribes of Israel.

02:024:005 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which
offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the
LORD.

02:024:006 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and
half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.

02:024:007 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the
audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will
we do, and be obedient.

02:024:008 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and
said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with
you concerning all these words.

02:024:009 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy
of the elders of Israel:

02:024:010 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet
as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of
heaven in his clearness.

02:024:011 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his
hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.

02:024:012 And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount,
and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and
commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

02:024:013 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up
into the mount of God.

02:024:014 And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we
come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man
have any matters to do, let him come unto them.

02:024:015 And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the
mount.

02:024:016 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the
cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out
of the midst of the cloud.

02:024:017 And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring
fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

02:024:018 And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up
into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.

02:025:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:025:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an
offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall
take my offering.

02:025:003 And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold,
and silver, and brass,

02:025:004 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats'
hair,

02:025:005 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim
wood,

02:025:006 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet
incense,

02:025:007 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the
breastplate.

02:025:008 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among
them.

02:025:009 According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the
tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so
shall ye make it.

02:025:010 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a
half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth
thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

02:025:011 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without
shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round
about.

02:025:012 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them
in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of
it, and two rings in the other side of it.

02:025:013 And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them
with gold.

02:025:014 And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of
the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.

02:025:015 The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not
be taken from it.

02:025:016 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall
give thee.

02:025:017 And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and
a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth
thereof.

02:025:018 And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work
shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.

02:025:019 And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on
the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the
two ends thereof.

02:025:020 And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high,
covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one
to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.

02:025:021 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in
the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.

02:025:022 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee
from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon
the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in
commandment unto the children of Israel.

02:025:023 Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits
shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a
cubit and a half the height thereof.

02:025:024 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a
crown of gold round about.

02:025:025 And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand breadth round
about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to the border thereof round
about.

02:025:026 And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the
rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof.

02:025:027 Over against the border shall the rings be for places of the
staves to bear the table.

02:025:028 And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay
them with gold, that the table may be borne with them.

02:025:029 And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons thereof,
and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal: of pure gold
shalt thou make them.

02:025:030 And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me alway.

02:025:031 And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten
work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his
bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same.

02:025:032 And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three
branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of
the candlestick out of the other side:

02:025:033 Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower
in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch,
with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the
candlestick.

02:025:034 And in the candlesticks shall be four bowls made like unto
almonds, with their knops and their flowers.

02:025:035 And there shall be a knop under two branches of the same, and
a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of
the same, according to the six branches that proceed out of the
candlestick.

02:025:036 Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it
shall be one beaten work of pure gold.

02:025:037 And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall
light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it.

02:025:038 And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall be
of pure gold.

02:025:039 Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these
vessels.

02:025:040 And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was
shewed thee in the mount.

02:026:001 Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of
fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of
cunning work shalt thou make them.

02:026:002 The length of one curtain shall be eight and twenty cubits,
and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and every one of the
curtains shall have one measure.

02:026:003 The five curtains shall be coupled together one to another;
and other five curtains shall be coupled one to another.

curtain from the selvedge in the coupling; and likewise shalt thou make
in the uttermost edge of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.

02:026:005 Fifty loops shalt thou make in the one curtain, and fifty
loops shalt thou make in the edge of the curtain that is in the coupling
of the second; that the loops may take hold one of another.

02:026:006 And thou shalt make fifty taches of gold, and couple the
curtains together with the taches: and it shall be one tabernacle.

breadth of one curtain four cubits: and the eleven curtains shall be all
of one measure.

02:026:009 And thou shalt couple five curtains by themselves, and six
curtains by themselves, and shalt double the sixth curtain in the
forefront of the tabernacle.

02:026:010 And thou shalt make fifty loops on the edge of the one
curtain that is outmost in the coupling, and fifty loops in the edge of
the curtain which coupleth the second.

02:026:011 And thou shalt make fifty taches of brass, and put the taches
into the loops, and couple the tent together, that it may be one.

02:026:012 And the remnant that remaineth of the curtains of the tent,
the half curtain that remaineth, shall hang over the backside of the
tabernacle.

02:026:013 And a cubit on the one side, and a cubit on the other side of
that which remaineth in the length of the curtains of the tent, it shall
hang over the sides of the tabernacle on this side and on that side, to
cover it.

02:026:014 And thou shalt make a covering for the tent of rams' skins
dyed red, and a covering above of badgers' skins.

02:026:015 And thou shalt make boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood
standing up.

02:026:016 Ten cubits shall be the length of a board, and a cubit and a
half shall be the breadth of one board.

tabernacle.

boards on the south side southward.

02:026:019 And thou shalt make forty sockets of silver under the twenty
boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets
under another board for his two tenons.

02:026:020 And for the second side of the tabernacle on the north side
there shall be twenty boards:

tabernacle in the two sides.

02:026:024 And they shall be coupled together beneath, and they shall be
coupled together above the head of it unto one ring: thus shall it be
for them both; they shall be for the two corners.

02:026:025 And they shall be eight boards, and their sockets of silver,
sixteen sockets; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under
another board.

02:026:026 And thou shalt make bars of shittim wood; five for the boards
of the one side of the tabernacle,

02:026:027 And five bars for the boards of the other side of the
tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the side of the tabernacle,
for the two sides westward.

02:026:028 And the middle bar in the midst of the boards shall reach
from end to end.

02:026:029 And thou shalt overlay the boards with gold, and make their
rings of gold for places for the bars: and thou shalt overlay the bars
with gold.

02:026:030 And thou shalt rear up the tabernacle according to the
fashion thereof which was shewed thee in the mount.

02:026:031 And thou shalt make a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet,
and fine twined linen of cunning work: with cherubims shall it be made:

02:026:032 And thou shalt hang it upon four pillars of shittim wood
overlaid with gold: their hooks shall be of gold, upon the four sockets
of silver.

02:026:033 And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that thou
mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony: and
the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy.

02:026:034 And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the
testimony in the most holy place.

02:026:035 And thou shalt set the table without the vail, and the
candlestick over against the table on the side of the tabernacle toward
the south: and thou shalt put the table on the north side.

02:026:036 And thou shalt make an hanging for the door of the tent, of
blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, wrought with
needlework.

02:026:037 And thou shalt make for the hanging five pillars of shittim
wood, and overlay them with gold, and their hooks shall be of gold: and
thou shalt cast five sockets of brass for them.

02:027:001 And thou shalt make an altar of shittim wood, five cubits
long, and five cubits broad; the altar shall be foursquare: and the
height thereof shall be three cubits.

02:027:002 And thou shalt make the horns of it upon the four corners
thereof: his horns shall be of the same: and thou shalt overlay it with

shovels, and his basons, and his fleshhooks, and his firepans: all the
vessels thereof thou shalt make of brass.

02:027:004 And thou shalt make for it a grate of network of brass; and
upon the net shalt thou make four brasen rings in the four corners
thereof.

02:027:005 And thou shalt put it under the compass of the altar beneath,
that the net may be even to the midst of the altar.

02:027:006 And thou shalt make staves for the altar, staves of shittim
wood, and overlay them with brass.

02:027:007 And the staves shall be put into the rings, and the staves
shall be upon the two sides of the altar, to bear it.

02:027:008 Hollow with boards shalt thou make it: as it was shewed thee
in the mount, so shall they make it.

02:027:009 And thou shalt make the court of the tabernacle: for the

twined linen of an hundred cubits long for one side:

02:027:020 And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they
bring thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to
burn always.

02:027:021 In the tabernacle of the congregation without the vail, which
is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening
to morning before the LORD: it shall be a statute for ever unto their
generations on the behalf of the children of Israel.

02:028:001 And take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with
him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me in
the priest's office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar,
Aaron's sons.

02:028:002 And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for
glory and for beauty.

02:028:003 And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I
have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron's
garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest's
office.

02:028:004 And these are the garments which they shall make; a
breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mitre,
and a girdle: and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother,
and his sons, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.

02:028:005 And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet,
and fine linen.

02:028:006 And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, and of
purple, of scarlet, and fine twined linen, with cunning work.

02:028:007 It shall have the two shoulderpieces thereof joined at the
two edges thereof; and so it shall be joined together.

02:028:008 And the curious girdle of the ephod, which is upon it, shall
be of the same, according to the work thereof; even of gold, of blue,
and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

02:028:009 And thou shalt take two onyx stones, and grave on them the
names of the children of Israel:

02:028:010 Six of their names on one stone, and the other six names of
the rest on the other stone, according to their birth.

02:028:011 With the work of an engraver in stone, like the engravings of
a signet, shalt thou engrave the two stones with the names of the
children of Israel: thou shalt make them to be set in ouches of gold.

02:028:012 And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoulders of the
ephod for stones of memorial unto the children of Israel: and Aaron
shall bear their names before the LORD upon his two shoulders for a
memorial.

02:028:013 And thou shalt make ouches of gold;

02:028:014 And two chains of pure gold at the ends; of wreathen work
shalt thou make them, and fasten the wreathen chains to the ouches.

02:028:015 And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning
work; after the work of the ephod thou shalt make it; of gold, of blue,
and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt thou make
it.

02:028:016 Foursquare it shall be being doubled; a span shall be the
length thereof, and a span shall be the breadth thereof.

02:028:017 And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows
of stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle:
this shall be the first row.

02:028:018 And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a
diamond.

02:028:019 And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

02:028:020 And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they
shall be set in gold in their inclosings.

02:028:021 And the stones shall be with the names of the children of
Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a
signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve
tribes.

02:028:022 And thou shalt make upon the breastplate chains at the ends
of wreathen work of pure gold.

02:028:023 And thou shalt make upon the breastplate two rings of gold,
and shalt put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.

02:028:024 And thou shalt put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two
rings which are on the ends of the breastplate.

02:028:025 And the other two ends of the two wreathen chains thou shalt
fasten in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of the
ephod before it.

02:028:026 And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and thou shalt put
them upon the two ends of the breastplate in the border thereof, which
is in the side of the ephod inward.

02:028:027 And two other rings of gold thou shalt make, and shalt put
them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart
thereof, over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious
girdle of the ephod.

02:028:028 And they shall bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto
the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may be above the
curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from
the ephod.

02:028:029 And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in
the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the
holy place, for a memorial before the LORD continually.

02:028:030 And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim
and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron's heart, when he goeth in
before the LORD: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of
Israel upon his heart before the LORD continually.

02:028:031 And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue.

02:028:032 And there shall be an hole in the top of it, in the midst
thereof: it shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of
it, as it were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not rent.

02:028:033 And beneath upon the hem of it thou shalt make pomegranates
of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof; and
bells of gold between them round about:

02:028:034 A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a
pomegranate, upon the hem of the robe round about.

02:028:035 And it shall be upon Aaron to minister: and his sound shall
be heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before the LORD, and when
he cometh out, that he die not.

02:028:036 And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it,
like the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.

02:028:037 And thou shalt put it on a blue lace, that it may be upon the
mitre; upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be.

02:028:038 And it shall be upon Aaron's forehead, that Aaron may bear
the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall
hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his
forehead, that they may be accepted before the LORD.

02:028:039 And thou shalt embroider the coat of fine linen, and thou
shalt make the mitre of fine linen, and thou shalt make the girdle of
needlework.

02:028:040 And for Aaron's sons thou shalt make coats, and thou shalt
make for them girdles, and bonnets shalt thou make for them, for glory
and for beauty.

02:028:041 And thou shalt put them upon Aaron thy brother, and his sons
with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them,
that they may minister unto me in the priest's office.

02:028:042 And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their
nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach:

02:028:043 And they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his sons, when they
come in unto the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they come near
unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not
iniquity, and die: it shall be a statute for ever unto him and his seed
after him.

02:029:001 And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow
them, to minister unto me in the priest's office: Take one young
bullock, and two rams without blemish,

02:029:002 And unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered with oil,
and wafers unleavened anointed with oil: of wheaten flour shalt thou
make them.

02:029:003 And thou shalt put them into one basket, and bring them in
the basket, with the bullock and the two rams.

02:029:004 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them with water.

02:029:005 And thou shalt take the garments, and put upon Aaron the
coat, and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate, and
gird him with the curious girdle of the ephod:

02:029:006 And thou shalt put the mitre upon his head, and put the holy
crown upon the mitre.

02:029:007 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his
head, and anoint him.

02:029:008 And thou shalt bring his sons, and put coats upon them.

02:029:009 And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons,
and put the bonnets on them: and the priest's office shall be theirs for
a perpetual statute: and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons.

02:029:010 And thou shalt cause a bullock to be brought before the
tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron and his sons shall put their
hands upon the head of the bullock.

02:029:011 And thou shalt kill the bullock before the LORD, by the door
of the tabernacle of the congregation.

02:029:012 And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put it
upon the horns of the altar with thy finger, and pour all the blood
beside the bottom of the altar.

02:029:013 And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the inwards,
and the caul that is above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat
that is upon them, and burn them upon the altar.

02:029:014 But the flesh of the bullock, and his skin, and his dung,
shalt thou burn with fire without the camp: it is a sin offering.

02:029:015 Thou shalt also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall
put their hands upon the head of the ram.

02:029:016 And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his blood,
and sprinkle it round about upon the altar.

02:029:017 And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces, and wash the inwards of
him, and his legs, and put them unto his pieces, and unto his head.

02:029:018 And thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is a
burnt offering unto the LORD: it is a sweet savour, an offering made by
fire unto the LORD.

02:029:019 And thou shalt take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons
shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.

02:029:020 Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put
it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right
ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the
great toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood upon the altar
round about.

02:029:021 And thou shalt take of the blood that is upon the altar, and
of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron, and upon his garments,
and upon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him: and he
shall be hallowed, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons'
garments with him.

02:029:022 Also thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the rump, and the
fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two
kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right shoulder; for it
is a ram of consecration:

02:029:023 And one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one
wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is before the LORD:

02:029:024 And thou shalt put all in the hands of Aaron, and in the
hands of his sons; and shalt wave them for a wave offering before the
LORD.

02:029:025 And thou shalt receive them of their hands, and burn them
upon the altar for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour before the LORD:
it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

02:029:026 And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of Aaron's
consecration, and wave it for a wave offering before the LORD: and it
shall be thy part.

02:029:027 And thou shalt sanctify the breast of the wave offering, and
the shoulder of the heave offering, which is waved, and which is heaved
up, of the ram of the consecration, even of that which is for Aaron, and
of that which is for his sons:

02:029:028 And it shall be Aaron's and his sons' by a statute for ever
from the children of Israel: for it is an heave offering: and it shall
be an heave offering from the children of Israel of the sacrifice of
their peace offerings, even their heave offering unto the LORD.

02:029:029 And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons' after him,
to be anointed therein, and to be consecrated in them.

02:029:030 And that son that is priest in his stead shall put them on
seven days, when he cometh into the tabernacle of the congregation to
minister in the holy place.

02:029:031 And thou shalt take the ram of the consecration, and seethe
his flesh in the holy place.

02:029:032 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and
the bread that is in the basket by the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation.

02:029:033 And they shall eat those things wherewith the atonement was
made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but a stranger shall not eat
thereof, because they are holy.

02:029:034 And if ought of the flesh of the consecrations, or of the
bread, remain unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder with
fire: it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.

02:029:035 And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according
to all things which I have commanded thee: seven days shalt thou
consecrate them.

02:029:036 And thou shalt offer every day a bullock for a sin offering
for atonement: and thou shalt cleanse the altar, when thou hast made an
atonement for it, and thou shalt anoint it, to sanctify it.

02:029:037 Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for the altar, and
sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever toucheth the
altar shall be holy.

02:029:038 Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar; two
lambs of the first year day by day continually.

02:029:039 The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other
lamb thou shalt offer at even:

02:029:040 And with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled with the
fourth part of an hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of an hin of
wine for a drink offering.

02:029:041 And the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, and shalt do
thereto according to the meat offering of the morning, and according to
the drink offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an offering made by fire
unto the LORD.

02:029:042 This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your
generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the
LORD: where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee.

02:029:043 And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the
tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory.

02:029:044 And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and
the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to
me in the priest's office.

02:029:045 And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be
their God.

02:029:046 And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that
brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among
them: I am the LORD their God.

02:030:001 And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon: of shittim
wood shalt thou make it.

02:030:002 A cubit shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth
thereof; foursquare shall it be: and two cubits shall be the height
thereof: the horns thereof shall be of the same.

02:030:003 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof,
and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt
make unto it a crown of gold round about.

02:030:004 And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown of
it, by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides of it shalt thou make
it; and they shall be for places for the staves to bear it withal.

02:030:005 And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay
them with gold.

02:030:006 And thou shalt put it before the vail that is by the ark of
the testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where I
will meet with thee.

02:030:007 And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning:
when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.

02:030:008 And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn
incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your
generations.

02:030:009 Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt
sacrifice, nor meat offering; neither shall ye pour drink offering
thereon.

02:030:010 And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once
in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the
year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it is
most holy unto the LORD.

02:030:011 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:030:012 When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after
their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto
the LORD, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague among them,
when thou numberest them.

02:030:013 This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that
are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel
is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the LORD.

02:030:014 Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from
twenty years old and above, shall give an offering unto the LORD.

02:030:015 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give
less than half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the LORD, to
make an atonement for your souls.

02:030:016 And thou shalt take the atonement money of the children of
Israel, and shalt appoint it for the service of the tabernacle of the
congregation; that it may be a memorial unto the children of Israel
before the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.

02:030:017 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:030:018 Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of
brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of
the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.

02:030:019 For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet
thereat:

02:030:020 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they
shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the
altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD:

02:030:021 So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die
not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his
seed throughout their generations.

02:030:022 Moreover the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:030:023 Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five
hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred
and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels,

02:030:024 And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the
sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:

02:030:025 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment
compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing
oil.

02:030:026 And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation
therewith, and the ark of the testimony,

02:030:027 And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and
his vessels, and the altar of incense,

02:030:028 And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and the
laver and his foot.

02:030:029 And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy:
whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy.

02:030:030 And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate
them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office.

02:030:031 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying,
This shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations.

02:030:032 Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye
make any other like it, after the composition of it: it is holy, and it
shall be holy unto you.

02:030:033 Whosoever compoundeth any like it, or whosoever putteth any
of it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off from his people.

02:030:034 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices,
stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure
frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:

02:030:035 And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art
of the apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy:

02:030:036 And thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it
before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will
meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.

02:030:037 And as for the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall not
make to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be
unto thee holy for the LORD.

02:030:038 Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereto, shall
even be cut off from his people.

02:031:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:031:002 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son
of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:

02:031:003 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and
in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

02:031:004 To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and
in brass,

02:031:005 And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of
timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.

02:031:006 And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of
Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise
hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded
thee;

02:031:007 The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the
testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture
of the tabernacle,

02:031:008 And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick
with all his furniture, and the altar of incense,

02:031:009 And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and
the laver and his foot,

02:031:010 And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron
the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's
office,

02:031:011 And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place:
according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.

02:031:012 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:031:013 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily
my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you
throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that
doth sanctify you.

02:031:014 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you:
every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever
doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his
people.

02:031:015 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath
of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day,
he shall surely be put to death.

02:031:016 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to
observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual
covenant.

02:031:017 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever:
for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day
he rested, and was refreshed.

02:031:018 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing
with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone,
written with the finger of God.

02:032:001 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out
of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and
said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for
this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot
not what is become of him.

02:032:002 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings,
which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your
daughters, and bring them unto me.

02:032:003 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were
in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.

02:032:004 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a
graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These
be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

02:032:005 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron
made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD.

02:032:006 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt
offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat
and to drink, and rose up to play.

02:032:007 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy
people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted
themselves:

02:032:008 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I
commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped
it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O
Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

02:032:009 And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and,
behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

02:032:010 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against
them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great
nation.

02:032:011 And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth
thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out
of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

02:032:012 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief
did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume
them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent
of this evil against thy people.

02:032:013 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom
thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply
your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken
of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.

02:032:014 And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto
his people.

02:032:015 And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two
tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on
both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.

02:032:016 And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the
writing of God, graven upon the tables.

02:032:017 And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they
shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.

02:032:018 And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for
mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome:
but the noise of them that sing do I hear.

02:032:019 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp,
that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and
he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.

02:032:020 And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the
fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made
the children of Israel drink of it.

02:032:021 And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee,
that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?

02:032:022 And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou
knowest the people, that they are set on mischief.

02:032:023 For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before
us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of
Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

02:032:024 And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break
it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came
out this calf.

02:032:025 And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had
made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:)

02:032:026 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on
the LORD's side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered
themselves together unto him.

02:032:027 And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put
every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate
throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his
companion, and every man his neighbour.

02:032:028 And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses:
and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.

02:032:029 For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves today to the LORD,
even every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that he may bestow
upon you a blessing this day.

02:032:030 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the
people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the LORD;
peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.

02:032:031 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people
have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.

02:032:032 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot
me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.

02:032:033 And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against
me, him will I blot out of my book.

02:032:034 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I
have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee:
nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.

02:032:035 And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf,
which Aaron made.

02:033:001 And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence, thou
and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto
the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying,
Unto thy seed will I give it:

02:033:002 And I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out
the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the
Hivite, and the Jebusite:

02:033:003 Unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up
in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume
thee in the way.

02:033:004 And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned:
and no man did put on him his ornaments.

02:033:005 For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of
Israel, Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of
thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments
from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.

02:033:006 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their
ornaments by the mount Horeb.

02:033:007 And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the
camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the
congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the LORD
went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the
camp.

02:033:008 And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle,
that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and
looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle.

02:033:009 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle,
the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle,
and the Lord talked with Moses.

02:033:010 And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the
tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in
his tent door.

02:033:011 And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh
unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant
Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.

02:033:012 And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring
up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with
me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found
grace in my sight.

02:033:013 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy
sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace
in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.

02:033:014 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give
thee rest.

02:033:015 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry
us not up hence.

02:033:016 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have
found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall
we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the
face of the earth.

02:033:017 And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that
thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee
by name.

02:033:018 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

02:033:019 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee,
and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be
gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will
shew mercy.

02:033:020 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no
man see me, and live.

02:033:021 And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou
shalt stand upon a rock:

02:033:022 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I
will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand
while I pass by:

02:033:023 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back
parts: but my face shall not be seen.

02:034:001 And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone
like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that
were in the first tables, which thou brakest.

02:034:002 And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto
mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount.

02:034:003 And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be
seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed
before that mount.

02:034:004 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and
Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the
LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone.

02:034:005 And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him
there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.

02:034:006 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD,
The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in
goodness and truth,

02:034:007 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and
transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty;
visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the
children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

02:034:008 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth,
and worshipped.

02:034:009 And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O LORD,
let my LORD, I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people;
and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance.

02:034:010 And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people
I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in
any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work
of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.

02:034:011 Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I
drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite,
and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.

02:034:012 Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the
inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in
the midst of thee:

02:034:013 But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and
cut down their groves:

02:034:014 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name
is Jealous, is a jealous God:

02:034:015 Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land,
and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their
gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;

02:034:016 And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their
daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring
after their gods.

02:034:017 Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.

02:034:018 The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days
thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the
month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.

02:034:019 All that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling
among thy cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male.

02:034:020 But the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb:
and if thou redeem him not, then shalt thou break his neck. All the
firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And none shall appear before me
empty.

02:034:021 Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt
rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.

02:034:022 And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits
of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end.

02:034:023 Thrice in the year shall all your menchildren appear before
the LORD God, the God of Israel.

02:034:024 For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy
borders: neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to
appear before the LORD thy God thrice in the year.

02:034:025 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven;
neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto
the morning.

02:034:026 The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring
unto the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his
mother's milk.

02:034:027 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for
after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with
Israel.

02:034:028 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights;
he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables
the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

02:034:029 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai
with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from
the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he
talked with him.

02:034:030 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses,
behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh
him.

02:034:031 And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of
the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.

02:034:032 And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he
gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount
Sinai.

02:034:033 And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on
his face.

02:034:034 But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he
took the vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto
the children of Israel that which he was commanded.

02:034:035 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the
skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again,
until he went in to speak with him.

02:035:001 And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of
Israel together, and said unto them, These are the words which the LORD
hath commanded, that ye should do them.

02:035:002 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there
shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever
doeth work therein shall be put to death.

02:035:003 Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the
sabbath day.

02:035:004 And Moses spake unto all the congregation of the children of
Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD commanded, saying,

02:035:005 Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD: whosoever
is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD; gold,
and silver, and brass,

02:035:006 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats'
hair,

02:035:007 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim
wood,

02:035:008 And oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for
the sweet incense,

02:035:009 And onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for
the breastplate.

02:035:010 And every wise hearted among you shall come, and make all
that the LORD hath commanded;

02:035:011 The tabernacle, his tent, and his covering, his taches, and
his boards, his bars, his pillars, and his sockets,

02:035:012 The ark, and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat, and the
vail of the covering,

02:035:013 The table, and his staves, and all his vessels, and the
shewbread,

02:035:014 The candlestick also for the light, and his furniture, and
his lamps, with the oil for the light,

02:035:015 And the incense altar, and his staves, and the anointing oil,
and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the door at the entering in
of the tabernacle,

02:035:016 The altar of burnt offering, with his brasen grate, his
staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,

02:035:017 The hangings of the court, his pillars, and their sockets,
and the hanging for the door of the court,

02:035:018 The pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and
their cords,

02:035:019 The cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, the
holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to
minister in the priest's office.

02:035:020 And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed
from the presence of Moses.

02:035:021 And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and
every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the LORD's
offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all
his service, and for the holy garments.

02:035:022 And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing
hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets,
all jewels of gold: and every man that offered offered an offering of
gold unto the LORD.

02:035:023 And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and red skins of rams, and
badgers' skins, brought them.

02:035:024 Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass
brought the LORD's offering: and every man, with whom was found shittim
wood for any work of the service, brought it.

02:035:025 And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their
hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of
purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.

02:035:026 And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun
goats' hair.

02:035:027 And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for
the ephod, and for the breastplate;

02:035:028 And spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil,
and for the sweet incense.

02:035:029 The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the
LORD, every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for
all manner of work, which the LORD had commanded to be made by the hand
of Moses.

02:035:030 And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the LORD
hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the
tribe of Judah;

02:035:031 And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in
understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;

02:035:032 And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver,
and in brass,

02:035:033 And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of
wood, to make any manner of cunning work.

02:035:034 And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and
Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.

02:035:035 Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner
of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the
embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and
of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise
cunning work.

02:036:001 Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted
man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work
all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all
that the LORD had commanded.

02:036:002 And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted
man, in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, even every one whose heart
stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:

02:036:003 And they received of Moses all the offering, which the
children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the
sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free
offerings every morning.

02:036:004 And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the
sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;

02:036:005 And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more
than enough for the service of the work, which the LORD commanded to
make.

02:036:006 And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be
proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make
any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were
restrained from bringing.

02:036:007 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to
make it, and too much.

02:036:008 And every wise hearted man among them that wrought the work
of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and
purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work made he them.

02:036:009 The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits, and
the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were all of one
size.

02:036:010 And he coupled the five curtains one unto another: and the
other five curtains he coupled one unto another.

02:036:011 And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from the
selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost side of
another curtain, in the coupling of the second.

02:036:012 Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he
in the edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the
loops held one curtain to another.

02:036:013 And he made fifty taches of gold, and coupled the curtains
one unto another with the taches: so it became one tabernacle.

02:036:014 And he made curtains of goats' hair for the tent over the
tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.

02:036:015 The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits
was the breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains were of one size.

02:036:016 And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains
by themselves.

02:036:017 And he made fifty loops upon the uttermost edge of the
curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge of the
curtain which coupleth the second.

02:036:018 And he made fifty taches of brass to couple the tent
together, that it might be one.

02:036:019 And he made a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red,
and a covering of badgers' skins above that.

02:036:020 And he made boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood,
standing up.

02:036:021 The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a
board one cubit and a half.

02:036:022 One board had two tenons, equally distant one from another:
thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.

02:036:023 And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the
south side southward:

02:036:024 And forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty boards;
two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under
another board for his two tenons.

02:036:025 And for the other side of the tabernacle, which is toward the
north corner, he made twenty boards,

02:036:026 And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one
board, and two sockets under another board.

02:036:027 And for the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six
boards.

02:036:028 And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in
the two sides.

02:036:029 And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the
head thereof, to one ring: thus he did to both of them in both the
corners.

02:036:030 And there were eight boards; and their sockets were sixteen
sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.

02:036:031 And he made bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of the
one side of the tabernacle,

02:036:032 And five bars for the boards of the other side of the
tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the sides
westward.

02:036:033 And he made the middle bar to shoot through the boards from
the one end to the other.

02:036:034 And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings of
gold to be places for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.

02:036:035 And he made a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine
twined linen: with cherubims made he it of cunning work.

02:036:036 And he made thereunto four pillars of shittim wood, and
overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them
four sockets of silver.

02:036:037 And he made an hanging for the tabernacle door of blue, and
purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, of needlework;

02:036:038 And the five pillars of it with their hooks: and he overlaid
their chapiters and their fillets with gold: but their five sockets were
of brass.

02:037:001 And Bezaleel made the ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a
half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and
a cubit and a half the height of it:

02:037:002 And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and
made a crown of gold to it round about.

02:037:003 And he cast for it four rings of gold, to be set by the four
corners of it; even two rings upon the one side of it, and two rings
upon the other side of it.

02:037:004 And he made staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with
gold.

02:037:005 And he put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark,
to bear the ark.

02:037:006 And he made the mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a
half was the length thereof, and one cubit and a half the breadth
thereof.

02:037:007 And he made two cherubims of gold, beaten out of one piece
made he them, on the two ends of the mercy seat;

02:037:008 One cherub on the end on this side, and another cherub on the
other end on that side: out of the mercy seat made he the cherubims on
the two ends thereof.

02:037:009 And the cherubims spread out their wings on high, and covered
with their wings over the mercy seat, with their faces one to another;
even to the mercy seatward were the faces of the cherubims.

02:037:010 And he made the table of shittim wood: two cubits was the
length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half
the height thereof:

02:037:011 And he overlaid it with pure gold, and made thereunto a crown
of gold round about.

02:037:012 Also he made thereunto a border of an handbreadth round
about; and made a crown of gold for the border thereof round about.

02:037:013 And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put the rings upon
the four corners that were in the four feet thereof.

02:037:014 Over against the border were the rings, the places for the
staves to bear the table.

02:037:015 And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them
with gold, to bear the table.

02:037:016 And he made the vessels which were upon the table, his
dishes, and his spoons, and his bowls, and his covers to cover withal,
of pure gold.

02:037:017 And he made the candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work made
he the candlestick; his shaft, and his branch, his bowls, his knops, and
his flowers, were of the same:

02:037:018 And six branches going out of the sides thereof; three
branches of the candlestick out of the one side thereof, and three
branches of the candlestick out of the other side thereof:

02:037:019 Three bowls made after the fashion of almonds in one branch,
a knop and a flower; and three bowls made like almonds in another
branch, a knop and a flower: so throughout the six branches going out of
the candlestick.

02:037:020 And in the candlestick were four bowls made like almonds, his
knops, and his flowers:

02:037:021 And a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under
two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same,
according to the six branches going out of it.

02:037:022 Their knops and their branches were of the same: all of it
was one beaten work of pure gold.

02:037:023 And he made his seven lamps, and his snuffers, and his
snuffdishes, of pure gold.

02:037:024 Of a talent of pure gold made he it, and all the vessels
thereof.

02:037:025 And he made the incense altar of shittim wood: the length of
it was a cubit, and the breadth of it a cubit; it was foursquare; and
two cubits was the height of it; the horns thereof were of the same.

02:037:026 And he overlaid it with pure gold, both the top of it, and
the sides thereof round about, and the horns of it: also he made unto it
a crown of gold round about.

02:037:027 And he made two rings of gold for it under the crown thereof,
by the two corners of it, upon the two sides thereof, to be places for
the staves to bear it withal.

02:037:028 And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them
with gold.

02:037:029 And he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense of
sweet spices, according to the work of the apothecary.

02:038:001 And he made the altar of burnt offering of shittim wood: five
cubits was the length thereof, and five cubits the breadth thereof; it
was foursquare; and three cubits the height thereof.

02:038:002 And he made the horns thereof on the four corners of it; the
horns thereof were of the same: and he overlaid it with brass.

02:038:003 And he made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the
shovels, and the basons, and the fleshhooks, and the firepans: all the
vessels thereof made he of brass.

02:038:004 And he made for the altar a brasen grate of network under the
compass thereof beneath unto the midst of it.

02:038:005 And he cast four rings for the four ends of the grate of
brass, to be places for the staves.

02:038:006 And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them
with brass.

02:038:007 And he put the staves into the rings on the sides of the
altar, to bear it withal; he made the altar hollow with boards.

02:038:008 And he made the laver of brass, and the foot of it of brass,
of the lookingglasses of the women assembling, which assembled at the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

02:038:009 And he made the court: on the south side southward the
hangings of the court were of fine twined linen, an hundred cubits:

02:038:010 Their pillars were twenty, and their brasen sockets twenty;
the hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of silver.

02:038:011 And for the north side the hangings were an hundred cubits,
their pillars were twenty, and their sockets of brass twenty; the hooks
of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

02:038:012 And for the west side were hangings of fifty cubits, their
pillars ten, and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars and their
fillets of silver.

02:038:013 And for the east side eastward fifty cubits.

02:038:014 The hangings of the one side of the gate were fifteen cubits;
their pillars three, and their sockets three.

02:038:015 And for the other side of the court gate, on this hand and
that hand, were hangings of fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and
their sockets three.

02:038:016 All the hangings of the court round about were of fine twined
linen.

02:038:017 And the sockets for the pillars were of brass; the hooks of
the pillars and their fillets of silver; and the overlaying of their
chapiters of silver; and all the pillars of the court were filleted with
silver.

02:038:018 And the hanging for the gate of the court was needlework, of
blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: and twenty cubits
was the length, and the height in the breadth was five cubits,
answerable to the hangings of the court.

02:038:019 And their pillars were four, and their sockets of brass four;
their hooks of silver, and the overlaying of their chapiters and their
fillets of silver.

02:038:020 And all the pins of the tabernacle, and of the court round
about, were of brass.

02:038:021 This is the sum of the tabernacle, even of the tabernacle of
testimony, as it was counted, according to the commandment of Moses, for
the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar, son to Aaron the
priest.

02:038:022 And Bezaleel the son Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of
Judah, made all that the LORD commanded Moses.

02:038:023 And with him was Aholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of
Dan, an engraver, and a cunning workman, and an embroiderer in blue, and
in purple, and in scarlet, and fine linen.

02:038:024 All the gold that was occupied for the work in all the work
of the holy place, even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine
talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of the
sanctuary.

02:038:025 And the silver of them that were numbered of the congregation
was an hundred talents, and a thousand seven hundred and threescore and
fifteen shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:

02:038:026 A bekah for every man, that is, half a shekel, after the
shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that went to be numbered, from
twenty years old and upward, for six hundred thousand and three thousand
and five hundred and fifty men.

02:038:027 And of the hundred talents of silver were cast the sockets of
the sanctuary, and the sockets of the vail; an hundred sockets of the
hundred talents, a talent for a socket.

02:038:028 And of the thousand seven hundred seventy and five shekels he
made hooks for the pillars, and overlaid their chapiters, and filleted
them.

02:038:029 And the brass of the offering was seventy talents, and two
thousand and four hundred shekels.

02:038:030 And therewith he made the sockets to the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, and the brasen altar, and the brasen
grate for it, and all the vessels of the altar,

02:038:031 And the sockets of the court round about, and the sockets of
the court gate, and all the pins of the tabernacle, and all the pins of
the court round about.

02:039:001 And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths of
service, to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments for
Aaron; as the LORD commanded Moses.

02:039:002 And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet,
and fine twined linen.

02:039:003 And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into
wires, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet,
and in the fine linen, with cunning work.

02:039:004 They made shoulderpieces for it, to couple it together: by
the two edges was it coupled together.

02:039:005 And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was upon it, was of
the same, according to the work thereof; of gold, blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine twined linen; as the LORD commanded Moses.

02:039:006 And they wrought onyx stones inclosed in ouches of gold,
graven, as signets are graven, with the names of the children of Israel.

02:039:007 And he put them on the shoulders of the ephod, that they
should be stones for a memorial to the children of Israel; as the LORD
commanded Moses.

02:039:008 And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of
the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined
linen.

02:039:009 It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span
was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled.

02:039:010 And they set in it four rows of stones: the first row was a
sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this was the first row.

02:039:011 And the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.

02:039:012 And the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

02:039:013 And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper: they were
inclosed in ouches of gold in their inclosings.

02:039:014 And the stones were according to the names of the children of
Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a
signet, every one with his name, according to the twelve tribes.

02:039:015 And they made upon the breastplate chains at the ends, of
wreathen work of pure gold.

02:039:016 And they made two ouches of gold, and two gold rings; and put
the two rings in the two ends of the breastplate.

02:039:017 And they put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings
on the ends of the breastplate.

02:039:018 And the two ends of the two wreathen chains they fastened in
the two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod, before
it.

02:039:019 And they made two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends
of the breastplate, upon the border of it, which was on the side of the
ephod inward.

02:039:020 And they made two other golden rings, and put them on the two
sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart of it, over against
the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the ephod.

02:039:021 And they did bind the breastplate by his rings unto the rings
of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above the curious
girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from
the ephod; as the LORD commanded Moses.

02:039:022 And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.

02:039:023 And there was an hole in the midst of the robe, as the hole
of an habergeon, with a band round about the hole, that it should not
rend.

02:039:024 And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue,
and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.

02:039:025 And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between
the pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, round about between the
pomegranates;

02:039:026 A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round
about the hem of the robe to minister in; as the LORD commanded Moses.

02:039:027 And they made coats of fine linen of woven work for Aaron,
and for his sons,

02:039:028 And a mitre of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine linen,
and linen breeches of fine twined linen,

02:039:029 And a girdle of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and
scarlet, of needlework; as the LORD commanded Moses.

02:039:030 And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and
wrote upon it a writing, like to the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO
THE LORD.

02:039:031 And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten it on high
upon the mitre; as the LORD commanded Moses.

02:039:032 Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the
congregation finished: and the children of Israel did according to all
that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.

02:039:033 And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses, the tent, and all
his furniture, his taches, his boards, his bars, and his pillars, and
his sockets,

02:039:034 And the covering of rams' skins dyed red, and the covering of
badgers' skins, and the vail of the covering,

02:039:035 The ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the
mercy seat,

02:039:036 The table, and all the vessels thereof, and the shewbread,

02:039:037 The pure candlestick, with the lamps thereof, even with the
lamps to be set in order, and all the vessels thereof, and the oil for
light,

02:039:038 And the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet
incense, and the hanging for the tabernacle door,

02:039:039 The brasen altar, and his grate of brass, his staves, and all
his vessels, the laver and his foot,

02:039:040 The hangings of the court, his pillars, and his sockets, and
the hanging for the court gate, his cords, and his pins, and all the
vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of the
congregation,

02:039:041 The cloths of service to do service in the holy place, and
the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons' garments, to
minister in the priest's office.

02:039:042 According to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so the
children of Israel made all the work.

02:039:043 And Moses did look upon all the work, and, behold, they had
done it as the LORD had commanded, even so had they done it: and Moses
blessed them.

02:040:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

02:040:002 On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the
tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

02:040:003 And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and
cover the ark with the vail.

02:040:004 And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the
things that are to be set in order upon it; and thou shalt bring in the
candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.

02:040:005 And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before
the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the
tabernacle.

02:040:006 And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the
door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

02:040:007 And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of the
congregation and the altar, and shalt put water therein.

02:040:008 And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the
hanging at the court gate.

02:040:009 And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the
tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the
vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.

02:040:010 And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and
all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most
holy.

02:040:011 And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify
it.

02:040:012 And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.

02:040:013 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint
him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's
office.

02:040:014 And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:

02:040:015 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their
father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their
anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their
generations.

02:040:016 Thus did Moses: according to all that the LORD commanded him,
so did he.

02:040:017 And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on
the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.

02:040:018 And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets,
and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared
up his pillars.

02:040:019 And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put
the covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded Moses.

02:040:020 And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the
staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:

02:040:021 And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the
vail of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as the LORD
commanded Moses.

02:040:022 And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon
the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail.

02:040:023 And he set the bread in order upon it before the LORD; as the
LORD had commanded Moses.

02:040:024 And he put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation,
over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.

02:040:025 And he lighted the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD
commanded Moses.

02:040:026 And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation
before the vail:

02:040:027 And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the LORD commanded
Moses.

02:040:028 And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.

02:040:029 And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of the
tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered upon it the
burnt offering and the meat offering; as the LORD commanded Moses.

02:040:030 And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and
the altar, and put water there, to wash withal.

02:040:031 And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their
feet thereat:

02:040:032 When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when
they came near unto the altar, they washed; as the LORD commanded Moses.

02:040:033 And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the
altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the
work.

02:040:034 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the
glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.

02:040:035 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the
congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD
filled the tabernacle.

02:040:036 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the
children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:

02:040:037 But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not
till the day that it was taken up.

02:040:038 For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and
fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel,
throughout all their journeys.



BOOK 03 Leviticus


0$:001:001 And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake
unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

03:001:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any
man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering
of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock.

03:001:003 If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him
offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary
will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD.

03:001:004 And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt
offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.

03:001:005 And he shall kill the bullock before the LORD: and the
priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood
round about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation.

03:001:006 And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his
pieces.

03:001:007 And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the
altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire:

03:001:008 And the priests, Aaron's sons, shall lay the parts, the head,
and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon
the altar:

03:001:009 But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the
priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering
made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

03:001:010 And if his offering be of the flocks, namely, of the sheep,
or of the goats, for a burnt sacrifice; he shall bring it a male without
blemish.

03:001:011 And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward
before the LORD: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall sprinkle his blood
round about upon the altar.

03:001:012 And he shall cut it into his pieces, with his head and his
fat: and the priest shall lay them in order on the wood that is on the
fire which is upon the altar:

03:001:013 But he shall wash the inwards and the legs with water: and
the priest shall bring it all, and burn it upon the altar: it is a burnt
sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

03:001:014 And if the burnt sacrifice for his offering to the LORD be of
fowls, then he shall bring his offering of turtledoves, or of young
pigeons.

03:001:015 And the priest shall bring it unto the altar, and wring off
his head, and burn it on the altar; and the blood thereof shall be wrung
out at the side of the altar:

03:001:016 And he shall pluck away his crop with his feathers, and cast
it beside the altar on the east part, by the place of the ashes:

03:001:017 And he shall cleave it with the wings thereof, but shall not
divide it asunder: and the priest shall burn it upon the altar, upon the
wood that is upon the fire: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by
fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

03:002:001 And when any will offer a meat offering unto the LORD, his
offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put
frankincense thereon:

03:002:002 And he shall bring it to Aaron's sons the priests: and he
shall take thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil
thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn
the memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a
sweet savour unto the LORD:

03:002:003 And the remnant of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his
sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by
fire.

03:002:004 And if thou bring an oblation of a meat offering baken in the
oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or
unleavened wafers anointed with oil.

03:002:005 And if thy oblation be a meat offering baken in a pan, it
shall be of fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil.

03:002:006 Thou shalt part it in pieces, and pour oil thereon: it is a
meat offering.

03:002:007 And if thy oblation be a meat offering baken in the
fryingpan, it shall be made of fine flour with oil.

03:002:008 And thou shalt bring the meat offering that is made of these
things unto the LORD: and when it is presented unto the priest, he shall
bring it unto the altar.

03:002:009 And the priest shall take from the meat offering a memorial
thereof, and shall burn it upon the altar: it is an offering made by
fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

03:002:010 And that which is left of the meat offering shall be Aaron's
and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made
by fire.

03:002:011 No meat offering, which ye shall bring unto the LORD, shall
be made with leaven: for ye shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, in any
offering of the LORD made by fire.

03:002:012 As for the oblation of the firstfruits, ye shall offer them
unto the LORD: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet
savour.

03:002:013 And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season
with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God
to be lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou
shalt offer salt.

03:002:014 And if thou offer a meat offering of thy firstfruits unto the
LORD, thou shalt offer for the meat offering of thy firstfruits green
ears of corn dried by the fire, even corn beaten out of full ears.

03:002:015 And thou shalt put oil upon it, and lay frankincense thereon:
it is a meat offering.

03:002:016 And the priest shall burn the memorial of it, part of the
beaten corn thereof, and part of the oil thereof, with all the
frankincense thereof: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

03:003:001 And if his oblation be a sacrifice of peace offering, if he
offer it of the herd; whether it be a male or female, he shall offer it
without blemish before the LORD.

03:003:002 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and
kill it at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron's
sons the priests shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.

03:003:003 And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an
offering made by fire unto the LORD; the fat that covereth the inwards,
and all the fat that is upon the inwards,

03:003:004 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by
the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he
take away.

03:003:005 And Aaron's sons shall burn it on the altar upon the burnt
sacrifice, which is upon the wood that is on the fire: it is an offering
made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

03:003:006 And if his offering for a sacrifice of peace offering unto
the LORD be of the flock; male or female, he shall offer it without
blemish.

03:003:007 If he offer a lamb for his offering, then shall he offer it
before the LORD.

03:003:008 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and
kill it before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron's sons
shall sprinkle the blood thereof round about upon the altar.

03:003:009 And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an
offering made by fire unto the LORD; the fat thereof, and the whole
rump, it shall he take off hard by the backbone; and the fat that
covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards,

03:003:010 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is
by the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall
he take away.

03:003:011 And the priest shall burn it upon the altar: it is the food
of the offering made by fire unto the LORD.

03:003:012 And if his offering be a goat, then he shall offer it before
the LORD.

03:003:013 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of it, and kill it
before the tabernacle of the congregation: and the sons of Aaron shall
sprinkle the blood thereof upon the altar round about.

03:003:014 And he shall offer thereof his offering, even an offering
made by fire unto the LORD; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all
the fat that is upon the inwards,

03:003:015 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is
by the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall
he take away.

03:003:016 And the priest shall burn them upon the altar: it is the food
of the offering made by fire for a sweet savour: all the fat is the
LORD's.

03:003:017 It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations
throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood.

03:004:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:004:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a soul shall
sin through ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD
concerning things which ought not to be done, and shall do against any
of them:

03:004:003 If the priest that is anointed do sin according to the sin of
the people; then let him bring for his sin, which he hath sinned, a
young bullock without blemish unto the LORD for a sin offering.

03:004:004 And he shall bring the bullock unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD; and shall lay his hand
upon the bullock's head, and kill the bullock before the LORD.

03:004:005 And the priest that is anointed shall take of the bullock's
blood, and bring it to the tabernacle of the congregation:

03:004:006 And the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and
sprinkle of the blood seven times before the LORD, before the vail of
the sanctuary.

03:004:007 And the priest shall put some of the blood upon the horns of
the altar of sweet incense before the LORD, which is in the tabernacle
of the congregation; and shall pour all the blood of the bullock at the
bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation.

03:004:008 And he shall take off from it all the fat of the bullock for
the sin offering; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat
that is upon the inwards,

03:004:009 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is
by the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall
he take away,

03:004:010 As it was taken off from the bullock of the sacrifice of
peace offerings: and the priest shall burn them upon the altar of the
burnt offering.

03:004:011 And the skin of the bullock, and all his flesh, with his
head, and with his legs, and his inwards, and his dung,

03:004:012 Even the whole bullock shall he carry forth without the camp
unto a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn him on the
wood with fire: where the ashes are poured out shall he be burnt.

03:004:013 And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through
ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they
have done somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD
concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty;

03:004:014 When the sin, which they have sinned against it, is known,
then the congregation shall offer a young bullock for the sin, and bring
him before the tabernacle of the congregation.

03:004:015 And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands upon
the head of the bullock before the LORD: and the bullock shall be killed
before the LORD.

03:004:016 And the priest that is anointed shall bring of the bullock's
blood to the tabernacle of the congregation:

03:004:017 And the priest shall dip his finger in some of the blood, and
sprinkle it seven times before the LORD, even before the vail.

03:004:018 And he shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the
altar which is before the LORD, that is in the tabernacle of the
congregation, and shall pour out all the blood at the bottom of the
altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of
the congregation.

03:004:019 And he shall take all his fat from him, and burn it upon the
altar.

03:004:020 And he shall do with the bullock as he did with the bullock
for a sin offering, so shall he do with this: and the priest shall make
an atonement for them, and it shall be forgiven them.

03:004:021 And he shall carry forth the bullock without the camp, and
burn him as he burned the first bullock: it is a sin offering for the
congregation.

03:004:022 When a ruler hath sinned, and done somewhat through ignorance
against any of the commandments of the LORD his God concerning things
which should not be done, and is guilty;

03:004:023 Or if his sin, wherein he hath sinned, come to his knowledge;
he shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a male without blemish:

03:004:024 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and kill
it in the place where they kill the burnt offering before the LORD: it
is a sin offering.

03:004:025 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering
with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt
offering, and shall pour out his blood at the bottom of the altar of
burnt offering.

03:004:026 And he shall burn all his fat upon the altar, as the fat of
the sacrifice of peace offerings: and the priest shall make an atonement
for him as concerning his sin, and it shall be forgiven him.

03:004:027 And if any one of the common people sin through ignorance,
while he doeth somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD
concerning things which ought not to be done, and be guilty;

03:004:028 Or if his sin, which he hath sinned, come to his knowledge:
then he shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a female without
blemish, for his sin which he hath sinned.

03:004:029 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin offering,
and slay the sin offering in the place of the burnt offering.

03:004:030 And the priest shall take of the blood thereof with his
finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and
shall pour out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the altar.

03:004:031 And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat is
taken away from off the sacrifice of peace offerings; and the priest
shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savour unto the LORD; and the
priest shall make an atonement for him, and it shall be forgiven him.

03:004:032 And if he bring a lamb for a sin offering, he shall bring it
a female without blemish.

03:004:033 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin offering,
and slay it for a sin offering in the place where they kill the burnt
offering.

03:004:034 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering
with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt
offering, and shall pour out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the
altar:

03:004:035 And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat of the
lamb is taken away from the sacrifice of the peace offerings; and the
priest shall burn them upon the altar, according to the offerings made
by fire unto the LORD: and the priest shall make an atonement for his
sin that he hath committed, and it shall be forgiven him.

03:005:001 And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a
witness, whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not utter it,
then he shall bear his iniquity.

03:005:002 Or if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether it be a carcase
of an unclean beast, or a carcase of unclean cattle, or the carcase of
unclean creeping things, and if it be hidden from him; he also shall be
unclean, and guilty.

03:005:003 Or if he touch the uncleanness of man, whatsoever uncleanness
it be that a man shall be defiled withal, and it be hid from him; when
he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty.

03:005:004 Or if a soul swear, pronouncing with his lips to do evil, or
to do good, whatsoever it be that a man shall pronounce with an oath,
and it be hid from him; when he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty
in one of these.

03:005:005 And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these
things, that he shall confess that he hath sinned in that thing:

03:005:006 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD for
his sin which he hath sinned, a female from the flock, a lamb or a kid
of the goats, for a sin offering; and the priest shall make an atonement
for him concerning his sin.

03:005:007 And if he be not able to bring a lamb, then he shall bring
for his trespass, which he hath committed, two turtledoves, or two young
pigeons, unto the LORD; one for a sin offering, and the other for a
burnt offering.

03:005:008 And he shall bring them unto the priest, who shall offer that
which is for the sin offering first, and wring off his head from his
neck, but shall not divide it asunder:

03:005:009 And he shall sprinkle of the blood of the sin offering upon
the side of the altar; and the rest of the blood shall be wrung out at
the bottom of the altar: it is a sin offering.

03:005:010 And he shall offer the second for a burnt offering, according
to the manner: and the priest shall make an atonement for him for his
sin which he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.

03:005:011 But if he be not able to bring two turtledoves, or two young
pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth part
of an ephah of fine flour for a sin offering; he shall put no oil upon
it, neither shall he put any frankincense thereon: for it is a sin
offering.

03:005:012 Then shall he bring it to the priest, and the priest shall
take his handful of it, even a memorial thereof, and burn it on the
altar, according to the offerings made by fire unto the LORD: it is a
sin offering.

03:005:013 And the priest shall make an atonement for him as touching
his sin that he hath sinned in one of these, and it shall be forgiven
him: and the remnant shall be the priest's, as a meat offering.

03:005:014 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:005:015 If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, in
the holy things of the LORD; then he shall bring for his trespass unto
the LORD a ram without blemish out of the flocks, with thy estimation by
shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass
offering.

03:005:016 And he shall make amends for the harm that he hath done in
the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it unto
the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram
of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.

03:005:017 And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are
forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD; though he wist it
not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.

03:005:018 And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock,
with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest: and the
priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his ignorance wherein
he erred and wist it not, and it shall be forgiven him.

03:005:019 It is a trespass offering: he hath certainly trespassed
against the LORD.

03:006:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:006:002 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and
lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in
fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his
neighbour;

03:006:003 Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it,
and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning
therein:

03:006:004 Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that
he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which
he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or
the lost thing which he found,

03:006:005 Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even
restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto,
and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass
offering.

03:006:006 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD, a ram
without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass
offering, unto the priest:

03:006:007 And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the
LORD: and it shall be forgiven him for any thing of all that he hath
done in trespassing therein.

03:006:008 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:006:009 Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the
burnt offering: It is the burnt offering, because of the burning upon
the altar all night unto the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be
burning in it.

03:006:010 And the priest shall put on his linen garment, and his linen
breeches shall he put upon his flesh, and take up the ashes which the
fire hath consumed with the burnt offering on the altar, and he shall
put them beside the altar.

03:006:011 And he shall put off his garments, and put on other garments,
and carry forth the ashes without the camp unto a clean place.

03:006:012 And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall
not be put out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and
lay the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the
fat of the peace offerings.

03:006:013 The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never
go out.

03:006:014 And this is the law of the meat offering: the sons of Aaron
shall offer it before the LORD, before the altar.

03:006:015 And he shall take of it his handful, of the flour of the meat
offering, and of the oil thereof, and all the frankincense which is upon
the meat offering, and shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savour,
even the memorial of it, unto the LORD.

03:006:016 And the remainder thereof shall Aaron and his sons eat: with
unleavened bread shall it be eaten in the holy place; in the court of
the tabernacle of the congregation they shall eat it.

03:006:017 It shall not be baken with leaven. I have given it unto them
for their portion of my offerings made by fire; it is most holy, as is
the sin offering, and as the trespass offering.

03:006:018 All the males among the children of Aaron shall eat of it. It
shall be a statute for ever in your generations concerning the offerings
of the LORD made by fire: every one that toucheth them shall be holy.

03:006:019 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:006:020 This is the offering of Aaron and of his sons, which they
shall offer unto the LORD in the day when he is anointed; the tenth part
of an ephah of fine flour for a meat offering perpetual, half of it in
the morning, and half thereof at night.

03:006:021 In a pan it shall be made with oil; and when it is baken,
thou shalt bring it in: and the baken pieces of the meat offering shalt
thou offer for a sweet savour unto the LORD.

03:006:022 And the priest of his sons that is anointed in his stead
shall offer it: it is a statute for ever unto the LORD; it shall be
wholly burnt.

03:006:023 For every meat offering for the priest shall be wholly burnt:
it shall not be eaten.

03:006:024 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:006:025 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of
the sin offering: In the place where the burnt offering is killed shall
the sin offering be killed before the LORD: it is most holy.

03:006:026 The priest that offereth it for sin shall eat it: in the holy
place shall it be eaten, in the court of the tabernacle of the
congregation.

03:006:027 Whatsoever shall touch the flesh thereof shall be holy: and
when there is sprinkled of the blood thereof upon any garment, thou
shalt wash that whereon it was sprinkled in the holy place.

03:006:028 But the earthen vessel wherein it is sodden shall be broken:
and if it be sodden in a brasen pot, it shall be both scoured, and
rinsed in water.

03:006:029 All the males among the priests shall eat thereof: it is most
holy.

03:006:030 And no sin offering, whereof any of the blood is brought into
the tabernacle of the congregation to reconcile withal in the holy
place, shall be eaten: it shall be burnt in the fire.

03:007:001 Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering: it is most
holy.

03:007:002 In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they
kill the trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle
round about upon the altar.

03:007:003 And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and
the fat that covereth the inwards,

03:007:004 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by
the flanks, and the caul that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it
shall he take away:

03:007:005 And the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering
made by fire unto the LORD: it is a trespass offering.

03:007:006 Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be
eaten in the holy place: it is most holy.

03:007:007 As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is
one law for them: the priest that maketh atonement therewith shall have
it.

03:007:008 And the priest that offereth any man's burnt offering, even
the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he
hath offered.

03:007:009 And all the meat offering that is baken in the oven, and all
that is dressed in the fryingpan, and in the pan, shall be the priest's
that offereth it.

03:007:010 And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall all
the sons of Aaron have, one as much as another.

03:007:011 And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings,
which he shall offer unto the LORD.

03:007:012 If he offer it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with
the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and
unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine
flour, fried.

03:007:013 Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened
bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings.

03:007:014 And of it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for an
heave offering unto the LORD, and it shall be the priest's that
sprinkleth the blood of the peace offerings.

03:007:015 And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for
thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day that it is offered; he shall
not leave any of it until the morning.

03:007:016 But if the sacrifice of his offering be a vow, or a voluntary
offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offereth his sacrifice:
and on the morrow also the remainder of it shall be eaten:

03:007:017 But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third
day shall be burnt with fire.

03:007:018 And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace
offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted,
neither shall it be imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an
abomination, and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity.

03:007:019 And the flesh that toucheth any unclean thing shall not be
eaten; it shall be burnt with fire: and as for the flesh, all that be
clean shall eat thereof.

03:007:020 But the soul that eateth of the flesh of the sacrifice of
peace offerings, that pertain unto the LORD, having his uncleanness upon
him, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.

03:007:021 Moreover the soul that shall touch any unclean thing, as the
uncleanness of man, or any unclean beast, or any abominable unclean
thing, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which
pertain unto the LORD, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.

03:007:022 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:007:023 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat no
manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat.

03:007:024 And the fat of the beast that dieth of itself, and the fat of
that which is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use: but ye
shall in no wise eat of it.

03:007:025 For whosoever eateth the fat of the beast, of which men offer
an offering made by fire unto the LORD, even the soul that eateth it
shall be cut off from his people.

03:007:026 Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of
fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings.

03:007:027 Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even
that soul shall be cut off from his people.

03:007:028 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:007:029 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, He that offereth
the sacrifice of his peace offerings unto the LORD shall bring his
oblation unto the LORD of the sacrifice of his peace offerings.

03:007:030 His own hands shall bring the offerings of the LORD made by
fire, the fat with the breast, it shall he bring, that the breast may be
waved for a wave offering before the LORD.

03:007:031 And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar: but the
breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'.

03:007:032 And the right shoulder shall ye give unto the priest for an
heave offering of the sacrifices of your peace offerings.

03:007:033 He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood of the
peace offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his
part.

03:007:034 For the wave breast and the heave shoulder have I taken of
the children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings,
and have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons by a statute
for ever from among the children of Israel.

03:007:035 This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the
anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in
the day when he presented them to minister unto the LORD in the priest's
office;

03:007:036 Which the LORD commanded to be given them of the children of
Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever
throughout their generations.

03:007:037 This is the law of the burnt offering, of the meat offering,
and of the sin offering, and of the trespass offering, and of the
consecrations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings;

03:007:038 Which the LORD commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day
that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations unto
the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai.

03:008:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:008:002 Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the
anointing oil, and a bullock for the sin offering, and two rams, and a
basket of unleavened bread;

03:008:003 And gather thou all the congregation together unto the door
of the tabernacle of the congregation.

03:008:004 And Moses did as the LORD commanded him; and the assembly was
gathered together unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

03:008:005 And Moses said unto the congregation, This is the thing which
the LORD commanded to be done.

03:008:006 And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with
water.

03:008:007 And he put upon him the coat, and girded him with the girdle,
and clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him, and he girded
him with the curious girdle of the ephod, and bound it unto him
therewith.

03:008:008 And he put the breastplate upon him: also he put in the
breastplate the Urim and the Thummim.

03:008:009 And he put the mitre upon his head; also upon the mitre, even
upon his forefront, did he put the golden plate, the holy crown; as the
LORD commanded Moses.

03:008:010 And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle
and all that was therein, and sanctified them.

03:008:011 And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and
anointed the altar and all his vessels, both the laver and his foot, to
sanctify them.

03:008:012 And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron's head, and
anointed him, to sanctify him.

03:008:013 And Moses brought Aaron's sons, and put coats upon them, and
girded them with girdles, and put bonnets upon them; as the LORD
commanded Moses.

03:008:014 And he brought the bullock for the sin offering: and Aaron
and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock for the sin
offering.

03:008:015 And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the
horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar,
and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to
make reconciliation upon it.

03:008:016 And he took all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the
caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and Moses
burned it upon the altar.

03:008:017 But the bullock, and his hide, his flesh, and his dung, he
burnt with fire without the camp; as the LORD commanded Moses.

03:008:018 And he brought the ram for the burnt offering: and Aaron and
his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

03:008:019 And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the
altar round about.

03:008:020 And he cut the ram into pieces; and Moses burnt the head, and
the pieces, and the fat.

03:008:021 And he washed the inwards and the legs in water; and Moses
burnt the whole ram upon the altar: it was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet
savour, and an offering made by fire unto the LORD; as the LORD
commanded Moses.

03:008:022 And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration: and
Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

03:008:023 And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it
upon the tip of Aaron's right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand,
and upon the great toe of his right foot.

03:008:024 And he brought Aaron's sons, and Moses put of the blood upon
the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumbs of their right hands,
and upon the great toes of their right feet: and Moses sprinkled the
blood upon the altar round about.

03:008:025 And he took the fat, and the rump, and all the fat that was
upon the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and
their fat, and the right shoulder:

03:008:026 And out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before
the LORD, he took one unleavened cake, and a cake of oiled bread, and
one wafer, and put them on the fat, and upon the right shoulder:

03:008:027 And he put all upon Aaron's hands, and upon his sons' hands,
and waved them for a wave offering before the LORD.

03:008:028 And Moses took them from off their hands, and burnt them on
the altar upon the burnt offering: they were consecrations for a sweet
savour: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

03:008:029 And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave offering
before the LORD: for of the ram of consecration it was Moses' part; as
the LORD commanded Moses.

03:008:030 And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which
was upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his garments,
and upon his sons, and upon his sons' garments with him; and sanctified
Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.

03:008:031 And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at
the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and there eat it with
the bread that is in the basket of consecrations, as I commanded,
saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it.

03:008:032 And that which remaineth of the flesh and of the bread shall
ye burn with fire.

03:008:033 And ye shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation in seven days, until the days of your consecration be at an
end: for seven days shall he consecrate you.

03:008:034 As he hath done this day, so the LORD hath commanded to do,
to make an atonement for you.

03:008:035 Therefore shall ye abide at the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the LORD,
that ye die not: for so I am commanded.

03:008:036 So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD commanded
by the hand of Moses.

03:009:001 And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called
Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;

03:009:002 And he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a sin
offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer
them before the LORD.

03:009:003 And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak, saying,
Take ye a kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb,
both of the first year, without blemish, for a burnt offering;

03:009:004 Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice
before the LORD; and a meat offering mingled with oil: for to day the
LORD will appear unto you.

03:009:005 And they brought that which Moses commanded before the
tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near and
stood before the LORD.

03:009:006 And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commanded
that ye should do: and the glory of the LORD shall appear unto you.

03:009:007 And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy
sin offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for thyself,
and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and make an
atonement for them; as the LORD commanded.

03:009:008 Aaron therefore went unto the altar, and slew the calf of the
sin offering, which was for himself.

03:009:009 And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and he
dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar,
and poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar:

03:009:010 But the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of
the sin offering, he burnt upon the altar; as the LORD commanded Moses.

03:009:011 And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without the
camp.

03:009:012 And he slew the burnt offering; and Aaron's sons presented
unto him the blood, which he sprinkled round about upon the altar.

03:009:013 And they presented the burnt offering unto him, with the
pieces thereof, and the head: and he burnt them upon the altar.

03:009:014 And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt them upon
the burnt offering on the altar.

03:009:015 And he brought the people's offering, and took the goat,
which was the sin offering for the people, and slew it, and offered it
for sin, as the first.

03:009:016 And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it according
to the manner.

03:009:017 And he brought the meat offering, and took an handful
thereof, and burnt it upon the altar, beside the burnt sacrifice of the
morning.

03:009:018 He slew also the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice of peace
offerings, which was for the people: and Aaron's sons presented unto him
the blood, which he sprinkled upon the altar round about,

03:009:019 And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump, and that
which covereth the inwards, and the kidneys, and the caul above the
liver:

03:009:020 And they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fat
upon the altar:

03:009:021 And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave
offering before the LORD; as Moses commanded.

03:009:022 And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed
them, and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt
offering, and peace offerings.

03:009:023 And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the
congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of the
LORD appeared unto all the people.

03:009:024 And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed
upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people
saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.

03:010:001 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them
his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered
strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.

03:010:002 And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and
they died before the LORD.

03:010:003 Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake,
saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all
the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.

03:010:004 And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the
uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your brethren from
before the sanctuary out of the camp.

03:010:005 So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the
camp; as Moses had said.

03:010:006 And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar,
his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye
die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the
whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath kindled.

03:010:007 And ye shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of
the congregation, lest ye die: for the anointing oil of the LORD is upon
you. And they did according to the word of Moses.

03:010:008 And the LORD spake unto Aaron, saying,

03:010:009 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with
thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die:
it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:

03:010:010 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and
between unclean and clean;

03:010:011 And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes
which the LORD hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

03:010:012 And Moses spake unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto
Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meat offering that remaineth
of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and eat it without leaven
beside the altar: for it is most holy:

03:010:013 And ye shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due,
and thy sons' due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire: for so I
am commanded.

03:010:014 And the wave breast and heave shoulder shall ye eat in a
clean place; thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee: for they
be thy due, and thy sons' due, which are given out of the sacrifices of
peace offerings of the children of Israel.

03:010:015 The heave shoulder and the wave breast shall they bring with
the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering
before the LORD; and it shall be thine, and thy sons' with thee, by a
statute for ever; as the LORD hath commanded.

03:010:016 And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering,
and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar,
the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,

03:010:017 Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy
place, seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the
iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the
LORD?

03:010:018 Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy
place: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.

03:010:019 And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered
their sin offering and their burnt offering before the LORD; and such
things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to day,
should it have been accepted in the sight of the LORD?

03:010:020 And when Moses heard that, he was content.

03:011:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,

03:011:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the
beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

03:011:003 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth
the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.

03:011:004 Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the
cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth
the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

03:011:005 And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not
the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

03:011:006 And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not
the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

03:011:007 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be
clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.

03:011:008 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye
not touch; they are unclean to you.

03:011:009 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever
hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them
shall ye eat.

03:011:010 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the
rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is
in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:

03:011:011 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat
of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.

03:011:012 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall
be an abomination unto you.

03:011:013 And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among
the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle,
and the ossifrage, and the ospray,

03:011:014 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;

03:011:015 Every raven after his kind;

03:011:016 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk
after his kind,

03:011:017 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,

03:011:018 And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,

03:011:019 And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and
the bat.

03:011:020 All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an
abomination unto you.

03:011:021 Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that
goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal
upon the earth;

03:011:022 Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and
the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the
grasshopper after his kind.

03:011:023 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet,
shall be an abomination unto you.

03:011:024 And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the
carcase of them shall be unclean until the even.

03:011:025 And whosoever beareth ought of the carcase of them shall wash
his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

03:011:026 The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is
not clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one
that toucheth them shall be unclean.

03:011:027 And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of
beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth
their carcase shall be unclean until the even.

03:011:028 And he that beareth the carcase of them shall wash his
clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.

03:011:029 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping
things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the
tortoise after his kind,

03:011:030 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the
snail, and the mole.

03:011:031 These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth
touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.

03:011:032 And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth
fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment,
or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it
must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it
shall be cleansed.

03:011:033 And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth,
whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.

03:011:034 Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water
cometh shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such
vessel shall be unclean.

03:011:035 And every thing whereupon any part of their carcase falleth
shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be
broken down: for they are unclean and shall be unclean unto you.

03:011:036 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of
water, shall be clean: but that which toucheth their carcase shall be
unclean.

03:011:037 And if any part of their carcase fall upon any sowing seed
which is to be sown, it shall be clean.

03:011:038 But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their
carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.

03:011:039 And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he that toucheth
the carcase thereof shall be unclean until the even.

03:011:040 And he that eateth of the carcase of it shall wash his
clothes, and be unclean until the even: he also that beareth the carcase
of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

03:011:041 And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall
be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.

03:011:042 Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon
all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that
creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an
abomination.

03:011:043 Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping
thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them,
that ye should be defiled thereby.

03:011:044 For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify
yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile
yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the
earth.

03:011:045 For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of
Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

03:011:046 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every
living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that
creepeth upon the earth:

03:011:047 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and
between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.

03:012:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:012:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have
conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven
days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall
she be unclean.

03:012:003 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be
circumcised.

03:012:004 And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying
three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into
the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled.

03:012:005 But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two
weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her
purifying threescore and six days.

03:012:006 And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son,
or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt
offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering, unto
the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest:

03:012:007 Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an atonement for
her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is the
law for her that hath born a male or a female.

03:012:008 And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring
two turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and
the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make an atonement for
her, and she shall be clean.

03:013:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,

03:013:002 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a
scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague
of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one
of his sons the priests:

03:013:003 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the
flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague
in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of
leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

03:013:004 If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in
sight be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned
white; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven
days:

03:013:005 And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and,
behold, if the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread
not in the skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:

03:013:006 And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day: and,
behold, if the plague be somewhat dark, and the plague spread not in the
skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean: it is but a scab: and he
shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

03:013:007 But if the scab spread much abroad in the skin, after that he
hath been seen of the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen of the
priest again.

03:013:008 And if the priest see that, behold, the scab spreadeth in the
skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a leprosy.

03:013:009 When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be
brought unto the priest;

03:013:010 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the rising be
white in the skin, and it have turned the hair white, and there be quick
raw flesh in the rising;

03:013:011 It is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest
shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not shut him up: for he is
unclean.

03:013:012 And if a leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the
leprosy cover all the skin of him that hath the plague from his head
even to his foot, wheresoever the priest looketh;

03:013:013 Then the priest shall consider: and, behold, if the leprosy
have covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the
plague: it is all turned white: he is clean.

03:013:014 But when raw flesh appeareth in him, he shall be unclean.

03:013:015 And the priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him to
be unclean: for the raw flesh is unclean: it is a leprosy.

03:013:016 Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed unto white, he
shall come unto the priest;

03:013:017 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the plague be
turned into white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that hath
the plague: he is clean.

03:013:018 The flesh also, in which, even in the skin thereof, was a
boil, and is healed,

03:013:019 And in the place of the boil there be a white rising, or a
bright spot, white, and somewhat reddish, and it be shewed to the
priest;

03:013:020 And if, when the priest seeth it, behold, it be in sight
lower than the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white; the priest
shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the
boil.

03:013:021 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white
hairs therein, and if it be not lower than the skin, but be somewhat
dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

03:013:022 And if it spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest
shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague.

03:013:023 But if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not, it
is a burning boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

03:013:024 Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is a hot
burning, and the quick flesh that burneth have a white bright spot,
somewhat reddish, or white;

03:013:025 Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the hair
in the bright spot be turned white, and it be in sight deeper than the
skin; it is a leprosy broken out of the burning: wherefore the priest
shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

03:013:026 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white
hair in the bright spot, and it be no lower than the other skin, but be
somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

03:013:027 And the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: and if it
be spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him
unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

03:013:028 And if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not in
the skin, but it be somewhat dark; it is a rising of the burning, and
the priest shall pronounce him clean: for it is an inflammation of the
burning.

03:013:029 If a man or woman have a plague upon the head or the beard;

03:013:030 Then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be
in sight deeper than the skin; and there be in it a yellow thin hair;
then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry scall, even a
leprosy upon the head or beard.

03:013:031 And if the priest look on the plague of the scall, and,
behold, it be not in sight deeper than the skin, and that there is no
black hair in it; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague
of the scall seven days:

03:013:032 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague:
and, behold, if the scall spread not, and there be in it no yellow hair,
and the scall be not in sight deeper than the skin;

03:013:033 He shall be shaven, but the scall shall he not shave; and the
priest shall shut up him that hath the scall seven days more:

03:013:034 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall:
and, behold, if the scall be not spread in the skin, nor be in sight
deeper than the skin; then the priest shall pronounce him clean: and he
shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

03:013:035 But if the scall spread much in the skin after his cleansing;

03:013:036 Then the priest shall look on him: and, behold, if the scall
be spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for yellow hair; he is
unclean.

03:013:037 But if the scall be in his sight at a stay, and that there is
black hair grown up therein; the scall is healed, he is clean: and the
priest shall pronounce him clean.

03:013:038 If a man also or a woman have in the skin of their flesh
bright spots, even white bright spots;

03:013:039 Then the priest shall look: and, behold, if the bright spots
in the skin of their flesh be darkish white; it is a freckled spot that
groweth in the skin; he is clean.

03:013:040 And the man whose hair is fallen off his head, he is bald;
yet is he clean.

03:013:041 And he that hath his hair fallen off from the part of his
head toward his face, he is forehead bald: yet is he clean.

03:013:042 And if there be in the bald head, or bald forehead, a white
reddish sore; it is a leprosy sprung up in his bald head, or his bald
forehead.

03:013:043 Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the
rising of the sore be white reddish in his bald head, or in his bald
forehead, as the leprosy appeareth in the skin of the flesh;

03:013:044 He is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall
pronounce him utterly unclean; his plague is in his head.

03:013:045 And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be
rent, and his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip,
and shall cry, Unclean, unclean.

03:013:046 All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be
defiled; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his
habitation be.

03:013:047 The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it
be a woollen garment, or a linen garment;

03:013:048 Whether it be in the warp, or woof; of linen, or of woollen;
whether in a skin, or in any thing made of skin;

03:013:049 And if the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or
in the skin, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of
skin; it is a plague of leprosy, and shall be shewed unto the priest:

03:013:050 And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up it
that hath the plague seven days:

03:013:051 And he shall look on the plague on the seventh day: if the
plague be spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or
in a skin, or in any work that is made of skin; the plague is a fretting
leprosy; it is unclean.

03:013:052 He shall therefore burn that garment, whether warp or woof,
in woollen or in linen, or any thing of skin, wherein the plague is: for
it is a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the fire.

03:013:053 And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not
spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any
thing of skin;

03:013:054 Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing
wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more:

03:013:055 And the priest shall look on the plague, after that it is
washed: and, behold, if the plague have not changed his colour, and the
plague be not spread; it is unclean; thou shalt burn it in the fire; it
is fret inward, whether it be bare within or without.

03:013:056 And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague be somewhat
dark after the washing of it; then he shall rend it out of the garment,
or out of the skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof:

03:013:057 And if it appear still in the garment, either in the warp, or
in the woof, or in any thing of skin; it is a spreading plague: thou
shalt burn that wherein the plague is with fire.

03:013:058 And the garment, either warp, or woof, or whatsoever thing of
skin it be, which thou shalt wash, if the plague be departed from them,
then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean.

03:013:059 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of
woollen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to
pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

03:014:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:014:002 This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his
cleansing: He shall be brought unto the priest:

03:014:003 And the priest shall go forth out of the camp; and the priest
shall look, and, behold, if the plague of leprosy be healed in the
leper;

03:014:004 Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be
cleansed two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and
hyssop:

03:014:005 And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed
in an earthen vessel over running water:

03:014:006 As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood,
and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird
in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water:

03:014:007 And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from
the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let
the living bird loose into the open field.

03:014:008 And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and
shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean:
and after that he shall come into the camp, and shall tarry abroad out
of his tent seven days.

03:014:009 But it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all
his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair
he shall shave off: and he shall wash his clothes, also he shall wash
his flesh in water, and he shall be clean.

03:014:010 And on the eighth day he shall take two he lambs without
blemish, and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish, and three
tenth deals of fine flour for a meat offering, mingled with oil, and one
log of oil.

03:014:011 And the priest that maketh him clean shall present the man
that is to be made clean, and those things, before the LORD, at the door
of the tabernacle of the congregation:

03:014:012 And the priest shall take one he lamb, and offer him for a
trespass offering, and the log of oil, and wave them for a wave offering
before the LORD:

03:014:013 And he shall slay the lamb in the place where he shall kill
the sin offering and the burnt offering, in the holy place: for as the
sin offering is the priest's, so is the trespass offering: it is most
holy:

03:014:014 And the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass
offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of
him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and
upon the great toe of his right foot:

03:014:015 And the priest shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it
into the palm of his own left hand:

03:014:016 And the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is
in his left hand, and shall sprinkle of the oil with his finger seven
times before the LORD:

03:014:017 And of the rest of the oil that is in his hand shall the
priest put upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed,
and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his
right foot, upon the blood of the trespass offering:

03:014:018 And the remnant of the oil that is in the priest's hand he
shall pour upon the head of him that is to be cleansed: and the priest
shall make an atonement for him before the LORD.

03:014:019 And the priest shall offer the sin offering, and make an
atonement for him that is to be cleansed from his uncleanness; and
afterward he shall kill the burnt offering:

03:014:020 And the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the meat
offering upon the altar: and the priest shall make an atonement for him,
and he shall be clean.

03:014:021 And if he be poor, and cannot get so much; then he shall take
one lamb for a trespass offering to be waved, to make an atonement for
him, and one tenth deal of fine flour mingled with oil for a meat
offering, and a log of oil;

03:014:022 And two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, such as he is able
to get; and the one shall be a sin offering, and the other a burnt
offering.

03:014:023 And he shall bring them on the eighth day for his cleansing
unto the priest, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,
before the LORD.

03:014:024 And the priest shall take the lamb of the trespass offering,
and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave offering
before the LORD:

03:014:025 And he shall kill the lamb of the trespass offering, and the
priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and put it
upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon
the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot:

03:014:026 And the priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his own
left hand:

03:014:027 And the priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of
the oil that is in his left hand seven times before the LORD:

03:014:028 And the priest shall put of the oil that is in his hand upon
the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the
thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon
the place of the blood of the trespass offering:

03:014:029 And the rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall
put upon the head of him that is to be cleansed, to make an atonement
for him before the LORD.

03:014:030 And he shall offer the one of the turtledoves, or of the
young pigeons, such as he can get;

03:014:031 Even such as he is able to get, the one for a sin offering,
and the other for a burnt offering, with the meat offering: and the
priest shall make an atonement for him that is to be cleansed before the
LORD.

03:014:032 This is the law of him in whom is the plague of leprosy,
whose hand is not able to get that which pertaineth to his cleansing.

03:014:033 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

03:014:034 When ye be come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you
for a possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land
of your possession;

03:014:035 And he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest,
saying, It seemeth to me there is as it were a plague in the house:

03:014:036 Then the priest shall command that they empty the house,
before the priest go into it to see the plague, that all that is in the
house be not made unclean: and afterward the priest shall go in to see
the house:

03:014:037 And he shall look on the plague, and, behold, if the plague
be in the walls of the house with hollow strakes, greenish or reddish,
which in sight are lower than the wall;

03:014:038 Then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the
house, and shut up the house seven days:

03:014:039 And the priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall
look: and, behold, if the plague be spread in the walls of the house;

03:014:040 Then the priest shall command that they take away the stones
in which the plague is, and they shall cast them into an unclean place
without the city:

03:014:041 And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round
about, and they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off without the
city into an unclean place:

03:014:042 And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place
of those stones; and he shall take other morter, and shall plaister the
house.

03:014:043 And if the plague come again, and break out in the house,
after that he hath taken away the stones, and after he hath scraped the
house, and after it is plaistered;

03:014:044 Then the priest shall come and look, and, behold, if the
plague be spread in the house, it is a fretting leprosy in the house; it
is unclean.

03:014:045 And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the
timber thereof, and all the morter of the house; and he shall carry them
forth out of the city into an unclean place.

03:014:046 Moreover he that goeth into the house all the while that it
is shut up shall be unclean until the even.

03:014:047 And he that lieth in the house shall wash his clothes; and he
that eateth in the house shall wash his clothes.

03:014:048 And if the priest shall come in, and look upon it, and,
behold, the plague hath not spread in the house, after the house was
plaistered: then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the
plague is healed.

03:014:049 And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar
wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:

03:014:050 And he shall kill the one of the birds in an earthen vessel
over running water:

03:014:051 And he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the
scarlet, and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain
bird, and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times:

03:014:052 And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird,
and with the running water, and with the living bird, and with the cedar
wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet:

03:014:053 But he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the
open fields, and make an atonement for the house: and it shall be clean.

03:014:054 This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and
scall,

03:014:055 And for the leprosy of a garment, and of a house,

03:014:056 And for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot:

03:014:057 To teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean: this is
the law of leprosy.

03:015:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying,

03:015:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When
any man hath a running issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he
is unclean.

03:015:003 And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his
flesh run with his issue, or his flesh be stopped from his issue, it is
his uncleanness.

03:015:004 Every bed, whereon he lieth that hath the issue, is unclean:
and every thing, whereon he sitteth, shall be unclean.

03:015:005 And whosoever toucheth his bed shall wash his clothes, and
bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

03:015:006 And he that sitteth on any thing whereon he sat that hath the
issue shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean
until the even.

03:015:007 And he that toucheth the flesh of him that hath the issue
shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until
the even.

03:015:008 And if he that hath the issue spit upon him that is clean;
then he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be
unclean until the even.

03:015:009 And what saddle soever he rideth upon that hath the issue
shall be unclean.

03:015:010 And whosoever toucheth any thing that was under him shall be
unclean until the even: and he that beareth any of those things shall
wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the
even.

03:015:011 And whomsoever he toucheth that hath the issue, and hath not
rinsed his hands in water, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself
in water, and be unclean until the even.

03:015:012 And the vessel of earth, that he toucheth which hath the
issue, shall be broken: and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in
water.

03:015:013 And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue; then
he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his
clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean.

03:015:014 And on the eighth day he shall take to him two turtledoves,
or two young pigeons, and come before the LORD unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, and give them unto the priest:

03:015:015 And the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin offering,
and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an
atonement for him before the LORD for his issue.

03:015:016 And if any man's seed of copulation go out from him, then he
shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even.

03:015:017 And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of
copulation, shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the even.

03:015:018 The woman also with whom man shall lie with seed of
copulation, they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean
until the even.

03:015:019 And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be
blood, she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her
shall be unclean until the even.

03:015:020 And every thing that she lieth upon in her separation shall
be unclean: every thing also that she sitteth upon shall be unclean.

03:015:021 And whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and
bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

03:015:022 And whosoever toucheth any thing that she sat upon shall wash
his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

03:015:023 And if it be on her bed, or on any thing whereon she sitteth,
when he toucheth it, he shall be unclean until the even.

03:015:024 And if any man lie with her at all, and her flowers be upon
him, he shall be unclean seven days; and all the bed whereon he lieth
shall be unclean.

03:015:025 And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days out of
the time of her separation, or if it run beyond the time of her
separation; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as the
days of her separation: she shall be unclean.

03:015:026 Every bed whereon she lieth all the days of her issue shall
be unto her as the bed of her separation: and whatsoever she sitteth
upon shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her separation.

03:015:027 And whosoever toucheth those things shall be unclean, and
shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until
the even.

03:015:028 But if she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to
herself seven days, and after that she shall be clean.

03:015:029 And on the eighth day she shall take unto her two turtles, or
two young pigeons, and bring them unto the priest, to the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation.

03:015:030 And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and
the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement
for her before the LORD for the issue of her uncleanness.

03:015:031 Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their
uncleanness; that they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile my
tabernacle that is among them.

03:015:032 This is the law of him that hath an issue, and of him whose
seed goeth from him, and is defiled therewith;

03:015:033 And of her that is sick of her flowers, and of him that hath
an issue, of the man, and of the woman, and of him that lieth with her
that is unclean.

03:016:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons
of Aaron, when they offered before the LORD, and died;

03:016:002 And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother,
that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before
the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will
appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.

03:016:003 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young
bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.

03:016:004 He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the
linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle,
and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments;
therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.

03:016:005 And he shall take of the congregation of the children of
Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt
offering.

03:016:006 And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which
is for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house.

03:016:007 And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the
LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

03:016:008 And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the
LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat.

03:016:009 And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD's lot
fell, and offer him for a sin offering.

03:016:010 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat,
shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him,
and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.

03:016:011 And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which
is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his
house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for
himself:

03:016:012 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from
off the altar before the LORD, and his hands full of sweet incense
beaten small, and bring it within the vail:

03:016:013 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD,
that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the
testimony, that he die not:

03:016:014 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle
it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy
seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.

03:016:015 Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for
the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood
as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy
seat, and before the mercy seat:

03:016:016 And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of
the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their
transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle
of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their
uncleanness.

03:016:017 And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the
congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place,
until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his
household, and for all the congregation of Israel.

03:016:018 And he shall go out unto the altar that is before the LORD,
and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood of the
bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the
altar round about.

03:016:019 And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger
seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the
children of Israel.

03:016:020 And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place,
and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring
the live goat:

03:016:021 And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live
goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel,
and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the
head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into
the wilderness:

03:016:022 And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a
land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

03:016:023 And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation,
and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into
the holy place, and shall leave them there:

03:016:024 And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and
put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt offering, and
the burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself, and
for the people.

03:016:025 And the fat of the sin offering shall he burn upon the altar.

03:016:026 And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his
clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.

03:016:027 And the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the
sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy
place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall burn in
the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.

03:016:028 And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe
his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp.

03:016:029 And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the
seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your
souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or
a stranger that sojourneth among you:

03:016:030 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you,
to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD.

03:016:031 It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict
your souls, by a statute for ever.

03:016:032 And the priest, whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall
consecrate to minister in the priest's office in his father's stead,
shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen clothes, even the
holy garments:

03:016:033 And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and he
shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the congregation, and for
the altar, and he shall make an atonement for the priests, and for all
the people of the congregation.

03:016:034 And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an
atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And
he did as the LORD commanded Moses.

03:017:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:017:002 Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the
children of Israel, and say unto them; This is the thing which the LORD
hath commanded, saying,

03:017:003 What man soever there be of the house of Israel, that killeth
an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that killeth it out of the
camp,

03:017:004 And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation, to offer an offering unto the LORD before the tabernacle
of the LORD; blood shall be imputed unto that man; he hath shed blood;
and that man shall be cut off from among his people:

03:017:005 To the end that the children of Israel may bring their
sacrifices, which they offer in the open field, even that they may bring
them unto the LORD, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,
unto the priest, and offer them for peace offerings unto the LORD.

03:017:006 And the priest shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar of the
LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and burn the fat
for a sweet savour unto the LORD.

03:017:007 And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils,
after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever
unto them throughout their generations.

03:017:008 And thou shalt say unto them, Whatsoever man there be of the
house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among you, that
offereth a burnt offering or sacrifice,

03:017:009 And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation, to offer it unto the LORD; even that man shall be cut off
from among his people.

03:017:010 And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the
strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I
will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut
him off from among his people.

03:017:011 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given
it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is
the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

03:017:012 Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you
shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you
eat blood.

03:017:013 And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of
the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any
beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood
thereof, and cover it with dust.

03:017:014 For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the
life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat
the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood
thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.

03:017:015 And every soul that eateth that which died of itself, or that
which was torn with beasts, whether it be one of your own country, or a
stranger, he shall both wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water,
and be unclean until the even: then shall he be clean.

03:017:016 But if he wash them not, nor bathe his flesh; then he shall
bear his iniquity.

03:018:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:018:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am
the LORD your God.

03:018:003 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt,
shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I
bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.

03:018:004 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk
therein: I am the LORD your God.

03:018:005 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which
if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.

03:018:006 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him,
to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.

03:018:007 The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother,
shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her
nakedness.

03:018:008 The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it
is thy father's nakedness.

03:018:009 The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or
daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad,
even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.

03:018:010 The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's
daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is
thine own nakedness.

03:018:011 The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten of
thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

03:018:012 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's sister:
she is thy father's near kinswoman.

03:018:013 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister:
for she is thy mother's near kinswoman.

03:018:014 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's brother,
thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt.

03:018:015 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law:
she is thy son's wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

03:018:016 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's wife:
it is thy brother's nakedness.

03:018:017 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her
daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her daughter's
daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it
is wickedness.

03:018:018 Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to
uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.

03:018:019 Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her
nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.

03:018:020 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's
wife, to defile thyself with her.

03:018:021 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire
to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the
LORD.

03:018:022 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is
abomination.

03:018:023 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself
therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down
thereto: it is confusion.

03:018:024 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all
these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:

03:018:025 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity
thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.

03:018:026 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and
shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own
nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:

03:018:027 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done,
which were before you, and the land is defiled;)

03:018:028 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it
spued out the nations that were before you.

03:018:029 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even
the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

03:018:030 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not
any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you,
and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.

03:019:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:019:002 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.

03:019:003 Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep
my sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.

03:019:004 Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I
am the LORD your God.

03:019:005 And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD,
ye shall offer it at your own will.

03:019:006 It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the
morrow: and if ought remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in
the fire.

03:019:007 And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable;
it shall not be accepted.

03:019:008 Therefore every one that eateth it shall bear his iniquity,
because he hath profaned the hallowed thing of the LORD: and that soul
shall be cut off from among his people.

03:019:009 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not
wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the
gleanings of thy harvest.

03:019:010 And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou
gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor
and stranger: I am the LORD your God.

03:019:011 Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to
another.

03:019:012 And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou
profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

03:019:013 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the
wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the
morning.

03:019:014 Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock
before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the LORD.

03:019:015 Ye 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 neighbour.

03:019:016 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.

03:019:017 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in
any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.

03:019:018 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the
children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I
am the LORD.

03:019:019 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.

03:019:020 And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a
bondmaid, betrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom
given her; she shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death,
because she was not free.

03:019:021 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD, unto
the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, even a ram for a
trespass offering.

03:019:022 And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram
of the trespass offering before the LORD for his sin which he hath done:
and the sin which he hath done shall be forgiven him.

03:019:023 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.

03:019:024 But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy to
praise the LORD withal.

03:019:025 And in the fifth year shall ye eat of the fruit thereof, that
it may yield unto you the increase thereof: I am the LORD your God.

03:019:026 Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye
use enchantment, nor observe times.

03:019:027 Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt
thou mar the corners of thy beard.

03:019:028 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead,
nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

03:019:029 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.

03:019:030 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am
the LORD.

03:019:031 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek
after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.

03:019:032 Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face
of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD.

03:019:033 And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall
not vex him.

03:019:034 But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as
one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were
strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

03:019:035 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in
weight, or in measure.

03:019:036 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.

03:019:037 Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my
judgments, and do them: I am the LORD.

03:020:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:020:002 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he
be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in
Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put
to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

03:020:003 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off
from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to
defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

03:020:004 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes
from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

03:020:005 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his
family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to
commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

03:020:006 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar
spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set
my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

03:020:007 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the
LORD your God.

03:020:008 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the LORD
which sanctify you.

03:020:009 For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be
surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood
shall be upon him.

03:020:010 And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife,
even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the
adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

03:020:011 And the man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered
his father's nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their
blood shall be upon them.

03:020:012 And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall
surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall
be upon them.

03:020:013 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman,
both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to
death; their blood shall be upon them.

03:020:014 And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness:
they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no
wickedness among you.

03:020:015 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to
death: and ye shall slay the beast.

03:020:016 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto,
thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to
death; their blood shall be upon them.

03:020:017 And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter, or
his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness;
it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their
people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his
iniquity.

03:020:018 And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and
shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she
hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut
off from among their people.

03:020:019 And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's
sister, nor of thy father's sister: for he uncovereth his near kin: they
shall bear their iniquity.

03:020:020 And if a man shall lie with his uncle's wife, he hath
uncovered his uncle's nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall
die childless.

03:020:021 And if a man shall take his brother's wife, it is an unclean
thing: he hath uncovered his brother's nakedness; they shall be
childless.

03:020:022 Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my
judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell
therein, spue you not out.

03:020:023 And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I
cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore
I abhorred them.

03:020:024 But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I
will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and
honey: I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other
people.

03:020:025 Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and
unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your
souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing
that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean.

03:020:026 And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and
have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.

03:020:027 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a
wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones:
their blood shall be upon them.

03:021:001 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:

03:021:002 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.

03:021:003 And for his sister a virgin, that is nigh unto him, which
hath had no husband; for her may he be defiled.

03:021:004 But he shall not defile himself, being a chief man among his
people, to profane himself.

03:021:005 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.

03:021:006 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.

03:021:007 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.

03:021:008 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.

03:021:009 And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by
playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with
fire.

03:021:010 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;

03:021:011 Neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself
for his father, or for his mother;

03:021:012 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 LORD.

03:021:013 And he shall take a wife in her virginity.

03:021:014 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.

03:021:015 Neither shall he profane his seed among his people: for I the
LORD do sanctify him.

03:021:016 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:021:017 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.

03:021:018 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,

03:021:019 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,

03:021:020 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye,
or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;

03:021:021 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.

03:021:022 He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and
of the holy.

03:021:023 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.

03:021:024 And Moses told it unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all
the children of Israel.

03:022:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:022:002 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.

03:022:003 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.

03:022:004 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;

03:022:005 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;

03:022:006 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.

03:022:007 And when the sun is down, he shall be clean, and shall
afterward eat of the holy things; because it is his food.

03:022:008 That which dieth of itself, or is torn with beasts, he shall
not eat to defile himself therewith; I am the LORD.

03:022:009 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.

03:022:010 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.

03:022:011 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.

03:022:012 If the priest's daughter also be married unto a stranger, she
may not eat of an offering of the holy things.

03:022:013 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 be no stranger eat
thereof.

03:022:014 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 thing.

03:022:015 And they shall not profane the holy things of the children of
Israel, which they offer unto the LORD;

03:022:016 Or suffer them to bear the iniquity of trespass, when they
eat their holy things: for I the LORD do sanctify them.

03:022:017 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:022:018 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 offering;

03:022:019 Ye shall offer at your own will a male without blemish, of
the beeves, of the sheep, or of the goats.

03:022:020 But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer: for
it shall not be acceptable for you.

03:022:021 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.

03:022:022 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.

03:022:023 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.

03:022:024 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.

03:022:025 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.

03:022:026 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:022:027 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.

03:022:028 And whether it be cow, or ewe, ye shall not kill it and her
young both in one day.

03:022:029 And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the
LORD, offer it at your own will.

03:022:030 On the same day it shall be eaten up; ye shall leave none of
it until the morrow: I am the LORD.

03:022:031 Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am
the LORD.

03:022:032 Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed
among the children of Israel: I am the LORD which hallow you,

03:022:033 That brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I
am the LORD.

03:023:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:023:002 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.

03:023:003 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.

03:023:004 These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations,
which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

03:023:005 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the
LORD's passover.

03:023:006 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.

03:023:007 In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall
do no servile work therein.

03:023:008 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.

03:023:009 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:023:010 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 priest:

03:023:011 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.

03:023:012 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.

03:023:013 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.

03:023:014 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.

03:023:015 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 complete:

03:023:016 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye
number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD.

03:023:017 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.

03:023:018 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.

03:023:019 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.

03:023:020 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.

03:023:021 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.

03:023:022 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.

03:023:023 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:023:024 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.

03:023:025 Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an
offering made by fire unto the LORD.

03:023:026 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:023:027 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.

03:023:028 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.

03:023:029 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that
same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.

03:023:030 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same
day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people.

03:023:031 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever
throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

03:023:032 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.

03:023:033 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:023:034 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 LORD.

03:023:035 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no
servile work therein.

03:023:036 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.

03:023:037 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:

03:023:038 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 LORD.

03:023:039 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.

03:023:040 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.

03:023:041 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.

03:023:042 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites
born shall dwell in booths:

03:023:043 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 your God.

03:023:044 And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of
the LORD.

03:024:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:024:002 Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee
pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn
continually.

03:024:003 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.

03:024:004 He shall order the lamps upon the pure candlestick before the
LORD continually.

03:024:005 And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes
thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake.

03:024:006 And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the
pure table before the LORD.

03:024:007 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.

03:024:008 Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD
continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting
covenant.

03:024:009 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.

03:024:010 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;

03:024:011 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:)

03:024:012 And they put him in ward, that the mind of the LORD might be
shewed them.

03:024:013 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:024:014 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.

03:024:015 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying,
Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin.

03:024:016 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.

03:024:017 And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death.

03:024:018 And he that killeth a beast shall make it good; beast for
beast.

03:024:019 And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbour; as he hath
done, so shall it be done to him;

03:024:020 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.

03:024:021 And he that killeth a beast, he shall restore it: and he that
killeth a man, he shall be put to death.

03:024:022 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.

03:024:023 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.

03:025:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying,

03:025:002 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.

03:025:003 Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt
prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;

03:025:004 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 vineyard.

03:025:005 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.

03:025:006 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.

03:025:007 And for thy cattle, and for the beast that are in thy land,
shall all the increase thereof be meat.

03:025:008 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.

03:025:009 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.

03:025:010 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.

03:025:011 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 vine undressed.

03:025:012 For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat
the increase thereof out of the field.

03:025:013 In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his
possession.

03:025:014 And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of
thy neighbour's hand, ye shall not oppress one another:

03:025:015 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:

03:025:016 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 unto thee.

03:025:017 Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt
fear thy God: for I am the LORD your God.

03:025:018 Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and
do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety.

03:025:019 And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your
fill, and dwell therein in safety.

03:025:020 And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year?
behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase:

03:025:021 Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year,
and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.

03:025:022 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.

03:025:023 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine,
for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

03:025:024 And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a
redemption for the land.

03:025:025 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 brother sold.

03:025:026 And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to
redeem it;

03:025:027 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 possession.

03:025:028 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.

03:025:029 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 it.

03:025:030 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.

03:025:031 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.

03:025:032 Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites, and the houses of
the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time.

03:025:033 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 of Israel.

03:025:034 But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold;
for it is their perpetual possession.

03:025:035 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.

03:025:036 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God;
that thy brother may live with thee.

03:025:037 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him
thy victuals for increase.

03:025:038 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.

03:025:039 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:

03:025:040 But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with
thee, and shall serve thee unto the year of jubile.

03:025:041 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.

03:025:042 For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the
land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen.

03:025:043 Thou shalt not rule over him with rigour; but shalt fear thy
God.

03:025:044 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 bondmaids.

03:025:045 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.

03:025:046 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 with rigour.

03:025:047 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:

03:025:048 After that he is sold he may be redeemed again; one of his
brethren may redeem him:

03:025:049 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 redeem himself.

03:025:050 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.

03:025:051 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.

03:025:052 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.

03:025:053 And as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him: and the
other shall not rule with rigour over him in thy sight.

03:025:054 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.

03:025:055 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.

03:026:001 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.

03:026:002 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am
the LORD.

03:026:003 If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do
them;

03:026:004 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.

03:026:005 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.

03:026:006 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.

03:026:007 And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before
you by the sword.

03:026:008 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.

03:026:009 For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and
multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.

03:026:010 And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because
of the new.

03:026:011 And I set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not
abhor you.

03:026:012 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall
be my people.

03:026:013 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.

03:026:014 But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these
commandments;

03:026:015 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:

03:026:016 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 eat it.

03:026:017 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.

03:026:018 And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I
will punish you seven times more for your sins.

03:026:019 And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make
your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:

03:026:020 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.

03:026:021 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.

03:026:022 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.

03:026:023 And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but
will walk contrary unto me;

03:026:024 Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you
yet seven times for your sins.

03:026:025 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 enemy.

03:026:026 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.

03:026:027 And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk
contrary unto me;

03:026:028 Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even
I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

03:026:029 And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of
your daughters shall ye eat.

03:026:030 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.

03:026:031 And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries
unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.

03:026:032 And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies
which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.

03:026:033 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.

03:026:034 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 sabbaths.

03:026:035 As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did
not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.

03:026:036 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.

03:026:037 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.

03:026:038 And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of your
enemies shall eat you up.

03:026:039 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.

03:026:040 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;

03:026:041 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:

03:026:042 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.

03:026:043 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.

03:026:044 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.

03:026:045 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.

03:026:046 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.

03:027:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

03:027:002 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.

03:027:003 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.

03:027:004 And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty
shekels.

03:027:005 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 shekels.

03:027:006 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.

03:027:007 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.

03:027:008 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.

03:027:009 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.

03:027:010 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.

03:027:011 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:

03:027:012 And the priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad: as
thou valuest it, who art the priest, so shall it be.

03:027:013 But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a fifth
part thereof unto thy estimation.

03:027:014 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.

03:027:015 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.

03:027:016 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.

03:027:017 If he sanctify his field from the year of jubile, according
to thy estimation it shall stand.

03:027:018 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.

03:027:019 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.

03:027:020 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.

03:027:021 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.

03:027:022 And if a man sanctify unto the LORD a field which he hath
bought, which is not of the fields of his possession;

03:027:023 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.

03:027:024 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.

03:027:025 And all thy estimations shall be according to the shekel of
the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.

03:027:026 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.

03:027:027 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.

03:027:028 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 the LORD.

03:027:029 None devoted, which shall be devoted of men, shall be
redeemed; but shall surely be put to death.

03:027:030 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.

03:027:031 And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall
add thereto the fifth part thereof.

03:027:032 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.

03:027:033 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.

03:027:034 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses
for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.



BOOK 04 Numbers


0$:001:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the
wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first

day of the second month, and they declared their pedigrees after their
families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the
names, from twenty years old and upward, by their polls.

04:001:019 As the LORD commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the

04:001:020 And the children of Reuben, Israel's eldest son, by their

04:001:044 These are those that were numbered, which Moses and Aaron
numbered, and the princes of Israel, being twelve men: each one was for

04:001:045 So were all those that were numbered of the children of
Israel, by the house of their fathers, from twenty years old and upward,
all that were able to go forth to war in Israel;

04:001:046 Even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand
and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.

04:001:047 But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not
numbered among them.

04:001:048 For the LORD had spoken unto Moses, saying,

04:001:049 Only thou shalt not number the tribe of Levi, neither take
the sum of them among the children of Israel:

04:001:050 But thou shalt appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of
testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that
belong to it: they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the vessels
thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about
the tabernacle.

04:001:051 And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall
take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites
shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to
death.

04:001:052 And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man
by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, throughout their
hosts.

04:001:053 But the Levites shall pitch round about the tabernacle of
testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children
of Israel: and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of
testimony.

04:001:054 And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD
commanded Moses, so did they.

04:002:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

04:002:002 Every man of the children of Israel shall pitch by his own
standard, with the ensign of their father's house: far off about the
tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch.

04:002:003 And on the east side toward the rising of the sun shall they
of the standard of the camp of Judah pitch throughout their armies: and
Nahshon the son of Amminadab shall be captain of the children of Judah.

04:002:004 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were
threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred.

04:002:005 And those that do pitch next unto him shall be the tribe of
Issachar: and Nethaneel the son of Zuar shall be captain of the children

shall be Elizur the son of Shedeur.

04:002:011 And his host, and those that were numbered thereof, were

04:002:012 And those which pitch by him shall be the tribe of Simeon:
and the captain of the children of Simeon shall be Shelumiel the son of
Zurishaddai.

04:002:013 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were
fifty and nine thousand and three hundred.

04:002:014 Then the tribe of Gad: and the captain of the sons of Gad
shall be Eliasaph the son of Reuel.

04:002:015 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were
forty and five thousand and six hundred and fifty.

04:002:016 All that were numbered in the camp of Reuben were an hundred
thousand and fifty and one thousand and four hundred and fifty,
throughout their armies. And they shall set forth in the second rank.

04:002:017 Then the tabernacle of the congregation shall set forward
with the camp of the Levites in the midst of the camp: as they encamp,
so shall they set forward, every man in his place by their standards.

04:002:018 On the west side shall be the standard of the camp of Ephraim
according to their armies: and the captain of the sons of Ephraim shall
be Elishama the son of Ammihud.

04:002:019 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were
forty thousand and five hundred.

04:002:020 And by him shall be the tribe of Manasseh: and the captain of
the children of Manasseh shall be Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.

04:002:021 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were
thirty and two thousand and two hundred.

04:002:022 Then the tribe of Benjamin: and the captain of the sons of
Benjamin shall be Abidan the son of Gideoni.

04:002:023 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were
thirty and five thousand and four hundred.

04:002:024 All that were numbered of the camp of Ephraim were an hundred
thousand and eight thousand and an hundred, throughout their armies. And
they shall go forward in the third rank.

04:002:025 The standard of the camp of Dan shall be on the north side by
their armies: and the captain of the children of Dan shall be Ahiezer
the son of Ammishaddai.

04:002:026 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were
threescore and two thousand and seven hundred.

04:002:027 And those that encamp by him shall be the tribe of Asher: and
the captain of the children of Asher shall be Pagiel the son of Ocran.

04:002:028 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were
forty and one thousand and five hundred.

04:002:029 Then the tribe of Naphtali: and the captain of the children
of Naphtali shall be Ahira the son of Enan.

04:002:030 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were
fifty and three thousand and four hundred.

04:002:031 All they that were numbered in the camp of Dan were an
hundred thousand and fifty and seven thousand and six hundred. They
shall go hindmost with their standards.

04:002:032 These are those which were numbered of the children of Israel
by the house of their fathers: all those that were numbered of the camps
throughout their hosts were six hundred thousand and three thousand and
five hundred and fifty.

04:002:033 But the Levites were not numbered among the children of
Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.

04:002:034 And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD
commanded Moses: so they pitched by their standards, and so they set
forward, every one after their families, according to the house of their
fathers.

04:003:001 These also are the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day
that the LORD spake with Moses in mount Sinai.

04:003:002 And these are the names of the sons of Aaron; Nadab the
firstborn, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

04:003:003 These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the priests which
were anointed, whom he consecrated to minister in the priest's office.

04:003:004 And Nadab and Abihu died before the LORD, when they offered
strange fire before the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had
no children: and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office
in the sight of Aaron their father.

04:003:005 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:003:006 Bring the tribe of Levi near, and present them before Aaron
the priest, that they may minister unto him.

04:003:007 And they shall keep his charge, and the charge of the whole
congregation before the tabernacle of the congregation, to do the
service of the tabernacle.

04:003:008 And they shall keep all the instruments of the tabernacle of
the congregation, and the charge of the children of Israel, to do the
service of the tabernacle.

04:003:009 And thou shalt give the Levites unto Aaron and to his sons:
they are wholly given unto him out of the children of Israel.

04:003:010 And thou shalt appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall
wait on their priest's office: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall
be put to death.

04:003:011 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:003:012 And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the
children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix
among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine;

04:003:013 Because all the firstborn are mine; for on the day that I
smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto me all the
firstborn in Israel, both man and beast: mine shall they be: I am the
LORD.

04:003:014 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai,
saying,

04:003:015 Number the children of Levi after the house of their fathers,
by their families: every male from a month old and upward shalt thou
number them.

04:003:016 And Moses numbered them according to the word of the LORD, as
he was commanded.

04:003:017 And these were the sons of Levi by their names; Gershon, and
Kohath, and Merari.

04:003:018 And these are the names of the sons of Gershon by their
families; Libni, and Shimei.

04:003:019 And the sons of Kohath by their families; Amram, and Izehar,

04:003:020 And the sons of Merari by their families; Mahli, and Mushi.
These are the families of the Levites according to the house of their
fathers.

04:003:021 Of Gershon was the family of the Libnites, and the family of
the Shimites: these are the families of the Gershonites.

04:003:022 Those that were numbered of them, according to the number of
all the males, from a month old and upward, even those that were
numbered of them were seven thousand and five hundred.

04:003:023 The families of the Gershonites shall pitch behind the
tabernacle westward.

04:003:024 And the chief of the house of the father of the Gershonites
shall be Eliasaph the son of Lael.

04:003:025 And the charge of the sons of Gershon in the tabernacle of
the congregation shall be the tabernacle, and the tent, the covering
thereof, and the hanging for the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation,

04:003:026 And the hangings of the court, and the curtain for the door
of the court, which is by the tabernacle, and by the altar round about,
and the cords of it for all the service thereof.

04:003:027 And of Kohath was the family of the Amramites, and the family
of the Izeharites, and the family of the Hebronites, and the family of
the Uzzielites: these are the families of the Kohathites.

04:003:028 In the number of all the males, from a month old and upward,
were eight thousand and six hundred, keeping the charge of the
sanctuary.

04:003:029 The families of the sons of Kohath shall pitch on the side of
the tabernacle southward.

04:003:030 And the chief of the house of the father of the families of
the Kohathites shall be Elizaphan the son of Uzziel.

04:003:031 And their charge shall be the ark, and the table, and the
candlestick, and the altars, and the vessels of the sanctuary wherewith
they minister, and the hanging, and all the service thereof.

04:003:032 And Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be chief over
the chief of the Levites, and have the oversight of them that keep the
charge of the sanctuary.

04:003:033 Of Merari was the family of the Mahlites, and the family of
the Mushites: these are the families of Merari.

04:003:034 And those that were numbered of them, according to the number
of all the males, from a month old and upward, were six thousand and two
hundred.

04:003:035 And the chief of the house of the father of the families of
Merari was Zuriel the son of Abihail: these shall pitch on the side of
the tabernacle northward.

04:003:036 And under the custody and charge of the sons of Merari shall
be the boards of the tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the pillars
thereof, and the sockets thereof, and all the vessels thereof, and all
that serveth thereto,

04:003:037 And the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets,
and their pins, and their cords.

04:003:038 But those that encamp before the tabernacle toward the east,
even before the tabernacle of the congregation eastward, shall be Moses,
and Aaron and his sons, keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the
charge of the children of Israel; and the stranger that cometh nigh
shall be put to death.

04:003:039 All that were numbered of the Levites, which Moses and Aaron
numbered at the commandment of the LORD, throughout their families, all
the males from a month old and upward, were twenty and two thousand.

04:003:040 And the LORD said unto Moses, Number all the firstborn of the
males of the children of Israel from a month old and upward, and take
the number of their names.

04:003:041 And thou shalt take the Levites for me (I am the LORD)
instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel; and the
cattle of the Levites instead of all the firstlings among the cattle of
the children of Israel.

04:003:042 And Moses numbered, as the LORD commanded him, all the
firstborn among the children of Israel.

04:003:043 And all the firstborn males by the number of names, from a
month old and upward, of those that were numbered of them, were twenty
and two thousand two hundred and threescore and thirteen.

04:003:044 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:003:045 Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the
children of Israel, and the cattle of the Levites instead of their
cattle; and the Levites shall be mine: I am the LORD.

04:003:046 And for those that are to be redeemed of the two hundred and
threescore and thirteen of the firstborn of the children of Israel,
which are more than the Levites;

04:003:047 Thou shalt even take five shekels apiece by the poll, after
the shekel of the sanctuary shalt thou take them: (the shekel is twenty
gerahs:)

04:003:048 And thou shalt give the money, wherewith the odd number of
them is to be redeemed, unto Aaron and to his sons.

04:003:049 And Moses took the redemption money of them that were over
and above them that were redeemed by the Levites:

04:003:050 Of the firstborn of the children of Israel took he the money;
a thousand three hundred and threescore and five shekels, after the
shekel of the sanctuary:

04:003:051 And Moses gave the money of them that were redeemed unto
Aaron and to his sons, according to the word of the LORD, as the LORD
commanded Moses.

04:004:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

04:004:002 Take the sum of the sons of Kohath from among the sons of
Levi, after their families, by the house of their fathers,

04:004:003 From thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old,
all that enter into the host, to do the work in the tabernacle of the
congregation.

04:004:004 This shall be the service of the sons of Kohath in the
tabernacle of the congregation, about the most holy things:

04:004:005 And when the camp setteth forward, Aaron shall come, and his
sons, and they shall take down the covering vail, and cover the ark of
testimony with it:

04:004:006 And shall put thereon the covering of badgers' skins, and
shall spread over it a cloth wholly of blue, and shall put in the staves
thereof.

04:004:007 And upon the table of shewbread they shall spread a cloth of
blue, and put thereon the dishes, and the spoons, and the bowls, and
covers to cover withal: and the continual bread shall be thereon:

04:004:008 And they shall spread upon them a cloth of scarlet, and cover
the same with a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put in the staves
thereof.

04:004:009 And they shall take a cloth of blue, and cover the
candlestick of the light, and his lamps, and his tongs, and his
snuffdishes, and all the oil vessels thereof, wherewith they minister
unto it:

04:004:010 And they shall put it and all the vessels thereof within a
covering of badgers' skins, and shall put it upon a bar.

04:004:011 And upon the golden altar they shall spread a cloth of blue,
and cover it with a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put to the
staves thereof:

04:004:012 And they shall take all the instruments of ministry,
wherewith they minister in the sanctuary, and put them in a cloth of
blue, and cover them with a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put
them on a bar:

04:004:013 And they shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread
a purple cloth thereon:

04:004:014 And they shall put upon it all the vessels thereof, wherewith
they minister about it, even the censers, the fleshhooks, and the
shovels, and the basons, all the vessels of the altar; and they shall
spread upon it a covering of badgers' skins, and put to the staves of
it.

04:004:015 And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the
sanctuary, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set
forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they
shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These things are the
burden of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:004:016 And to the office of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest
pertaineth the oil for the light, and the sweet incense, and the daily
meat offering, and the anointing oil, and the oversight of all the
tabernacle, and of all that therein is, in the sanctuary, and in the
vessels thereof.

04:004:017 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron saying,

04:004:018 Cut ye not off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites
from among the Levites:

04:004:019 But thus do unto them, that they may live, and not die, when
they approach unto the most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in,
and appoint them every one to his service and to his burden:

04:004:020 But they shall not go in to see when the holy things are
covered, lest they die.

04:004:021 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:004:022 Take also the sum of the sons of Gershon, throughout the
houses of their fathers, by their families;

04:004:023 From thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shalt
thou number them; all that enter in to perform the service, to do the
work in the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:004:024 This is the service of the families of the Gershonites, to
serve, and for burdens:

04:004:025 And they shall bear the curtains of the tabernacle, and the
tabernacle of the congregation, his covering, and the covering of the
badgers' skins that is above upon it, and the hanging for the door of
the tabernacle of the congregation,

04:004:026 And the hangings of the court, and the hanging for the door
of the gate of the court, which is by the tabernacle and by the altar
round about, and their cords, and all the instruments of their service,
and all that is made for them: so shall they serve.

04:004:027 At the appointment of Aaron and his sons shall be all the
service of the sons of the Gershonites, in all their burdens, and in all
their service: and ye shall appoint unto them in charge all their
burdens.

04:004:028 This is the service of the families of the sons of Gershon in
the tabernacle of the congregation: and their charge shall be under the
hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

04:004:029 As for the sons of Merari, thou shalt number them after their
families, by the house of their fathers;

04:004:030 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old
shalt thou number them, every one that entereth into the service, to do
the work of the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:004:031 And this is the charge of their burden, according to all
their service in the tabernacle of the congregation; the boards of the
tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the pillars thereof, and sockets
thereof,

04:004:032 And the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets,
and their pins, and their cords, with all their instruments, and with
all their service: and by name ye shall reckon the instruments of the
charge of their burden.

04:004:033 This is the service of the families of the sons of Merari,
according to all their service, in the tabernacle of the congregation,
under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

04:004:034 And Moses and Aaron and the chief of the congregation
numbered the sons of the Kohathites after their families, and after the
house of their fathers,

04:004:035 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old,
every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the tabernacle
of the congregation:

04:004:036 And those that were numbered of them by their families were
two thousand seven hundred and fifty.

04:004:037 These were they that were numbered of the families of the
Kohathites, all that might do service in the tabernacle of the
congregation, which Moses and Aaron did number according to the
commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

04:004:038 And those that were numbered of the sons of Gershon,
throughout their families, and by the house of their fathers,

04:004:039 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old,
every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the tabernacle
of the congregation,

04:004:040 Even those that were numbered of them, throughout their
families, by the house of their fathers, were two thousand and six
hundred and thirty.

04:004:041 These are they that were numbered of the families of the sons
of Gershon, of all that might do service in the tabernacle of the
congregation, whom Moses and Aaron did number according to the
commandment of the LORD.

04:004:042 And those that were numbered of the families of the sons of
Merari, throughout their families, by the house of their fathers,

04:004:043 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old,
every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the tabernacle
of the congregation,

04:004:044 Even those that were numbered of them after their families,
were three thousand and two hundred.

04:004:045 These be those that were numbered of the families of the sons
of Merari, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the word of the
LORD by the hand of Moses.

04:004:046 All those that were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and
Aaron and the chief of Israel numbered, after their families, and after
the house of their fathers,

04:004:047 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old,
every one that came to do the service of the ministry, and the service
of the burden in the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:004:048 Even those that were numbered of them, were eight thousand
and five hundred and fourscore,

04:004:049 According to the commandment of the LORD they were numbered
by the hand of Moses, every one according to his service, and according
to his burden: thus were they numbered of him, as the LORD commanded
Moses.

04:005:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:005:002 Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp
every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is defiled
by the dead:

04:005:003 Both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall
ye put them; that they defile not their camps, in the midst whereof I
dwell.

04:005:004 And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without
the camp: as the LORD spake unto Moses, so did the children of Israel.

04:005:005 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:005:006 Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall
commit any sin that men commit, to do a trespass against the LORD, and
that person be guilty;

04:005:007 Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and
he shall recompense his trespass with the principal thereof, and add
unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him against whom he
hath trespassed.

04:005:008 But if the man have no kinsman to recompense the trespass
unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the LORD, even to the priest;
beside the ram of the atonement, whereby an atonement shall be made for
him.

04:005:009 And every offering of all the holy things of the children of
Israel, which they bring unto the priest, shall be his.

04:005:010 And every man's hallowed things shall be his: whatsoever any
man giveth the priest, it shall be his.

04:005:011 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:005:012 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any
man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,

04:005:013 And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes
of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and there be no
witness against her, neither she be taken with the manner;

04:005:014 And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous
of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon
him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:

04:005:015 Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he
shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley
meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it
is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity
to remembrance.

04:005:016 And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the
LORD:

04:005:017 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel;
and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall
take, and put it into the water:

04:005:018 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and
uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands,
which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand
the bitter water that causeth the curse:

04:005:019 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the
woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to
uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this
bitter water that causeth the curse:

04:005:020 But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy
husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside
thine husband:

04:005:021 Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of
cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a
curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to
rot, and thy belly to swell;

04:005:022 And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy
bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman
shall say, Amen, amen.

04:005:023 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he
shall blot them out with the bitter water:

04:005:024 And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that
causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into
her, and become bitter.

04:005:025 Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the
woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before the LORD, and offer it
upon the altar:

04:005:026 And the priest shall take an handful of the offering, even
the memorial thereof, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward shall
cause the woman to drink the water.

04:005:027 And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall
come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against
her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her,
and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot:
and the woman shall be a curse among her people.

04:005:028 And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall
be free, and shall conceive seed.

04:005:029 This is the law of jealousies, when a wife goeth aside to
another instead of her husband, and is defiled;

04:005:030 Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be
jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the LORD, and the
priest shall execute upon her all this law.

04:005:031 Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity, and this woman
shall bear her iniquity.

04:006:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:006:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When
either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a
Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:

04:006:003 He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and
shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither
shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.

04:006:004 All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is
made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.

04:006:005 All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no
razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he
separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the
locks of the hair of his head grow.

04:006:006 All the days that he separateth himself unto the LORD he
shall come at no dead body.

04:006:007 He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his
mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die: because the
consecration of his God is upon his head.

04:006:008 All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD.

04:006:009 And if any man die very suddenly by him, and he hath defiled
the head of his consecration; then he shall shave his head in the day of
his cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave it.

04:006:010 And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or two
young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation:

04:006:011 And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and
the other for a burnt offering, and make an atonement for him, for that
he sinned by the dead, and shall hallow his head that same day.

04:006:012 And he shall consecrate unto the LORD the days of his
separation, and shall bring a lamb of the first year for a trespass
offering: but the days that were before shall be lost, because his
separation was defiled.

04:006:013 And this is the law of the Nazarite, when the days of his
separation are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation:

04:006:014 And he shall offer his offering unto the LORD, one he lamb of
the first year without blemish for a burnt offering, and one ewe lamb of
the first year without blemish for a sin offering, and one ram without
blemish for peace offerings,

04:006:015 And a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour mingled
with oil, and wafers of unleavened bread anointed with oil, and their
meat offering, and their drink offerings.

04:006:016 And the priest shall bring them before the LORD, and shall
offer his sin offering, and his burnt offering:

04:006:017 And he shall offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings
unto the LORD, with the basket of unleavened bread: the priest shall
offer also his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:006:018 And the Nazarite shall shave the head of his separation at
the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall take the hair
of the head of his separation, and put it in the fire which is under the
sacrifice of the peace offerings.

04:006:019 And the priest shall take the sodden shoulder of the ram, and
one unleavened cake out of the basket, and one unleavened wafer, and
shall put them upon the hands of the Nazarite, after the hair of his
separation is shaven:

04:006:020 And the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the
LORD: this is holy for the priest, with the wave breast and heave
shoulder: and after that the Nazarite may drink wine.

04:006:021 This is the law of the Nazarite who hath vowed, and of his
offering unto the LORD for his separation, beside that that his hand
shall get: according to the vow which he vowed, so he must do after the
law of his separation.

04:006:022 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:006:023 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye
shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

04:006:024 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

04:006:025 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto
thee:

04:006:026 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee
peace.

04:006:027 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I
will bless them.

04:007:001 And it came to pass on the day that Moses had fully set up
the tabernacle, and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all the
instruments thereof, both the altar and all the vessels thereof, and had
anointed them, and sanctified them;

04:007:002 That the princes of Israel, heads of the house of their
fathers, who were the princes of the tribes, and were over them that
were numbered, offered:

04:007:003 And they brought their offering before the LORD, six covered
wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for two of the princes, and for each
one an ox: and they brought them before the tabernacle.

04:007:004 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:007:005 Take it of them, that they may be to do the service of the
tabernacle of the congregation; and thou shalt give them unto the
Levites, to every man according to his service.

04:007:006 And Moses took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them unto
the Levites.

04:007:007 Two wagons and four oxen he gave unto the sons of Gershon,
according to their service:

04:007:008 And four wagons and eight oxen he gave unto the sons of
Merari, according unto their service, under the hand of Ithamar the son
of Aaron the priest.

04:007:009 But unto the sons of Kohath he gave none: because the service
of the sanctuary belonging unto them was that they should bear upon
their shoulders.

04:007:010 And the princes offered for dedicating of the altar in the
day that it was anointed, even the princes offered their offering before
the altar.

04:007:011 And the LORD said unto Moses, They shall offer their
offering, each prince on his day, for the dedicating of the altar.

04:007:012 And he that offered his offering the first day was Nahshon
the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah:

04:007:013 And his offering was one silver charger, the weight thereof
was an hundred and thirty shekels, one silver bowl of seventy shekels,

after that it was anointed.

04:007:089 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the
congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking
unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony,
from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

04:008:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:008:002 Speak unto Aaron and say unto him, When thou lightest the
lamps, the seven lamps shall give light over against the candlestick.

04:008:003 And Aaron did so; he lighted the lamps thereof over against
the candlestick, as the LORD commanded Moses.

04:008:004 And this work of the candlestick was of beaten gold, unto the
shaft thereof, unto the flowers thereof, was beaten work: according unto
the pattern which the LORD had shewed Moses, so he made the candlestick.

04:008:005 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:008:006 Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and
cleanse them.

04:008:007 And thus shalt thou do unto them, to cleanse them: Sprinkle
water of purifying upon them, and let them shave all their flesh, and
let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves clean.

04:008:008 Then let them take a young bullock with his meat offering,
even fine flour mingled with oil, and another young bullock shalt thou
take for a sin offering.

04:008:009 And thou shalt bring the Levites before the tabernacle of the
congregation: and thou shalt gather the whole assembly of the children
of Israel together:

04:008:010 And thou shalt bring the Levites before the LORD: and the
children of Israel shall put their hands upon the Levites:

04:008:011 And Aaron shall offer the Levites before the LORD for an
offering of the children of Israel, that they may execute the service of
the LORD.

04:008:012 And the Levites shall lay their hands upon the heads of the
bullocks: and thou shalt offer the one for a sin offering, and the other
for a burnt offering, unto the LORD, to make an atonement for the
Levites.

04:008:013 And thou shalt set the Levites before Aaron, and before his
sons, and offer them for an offering unto the LORD.

04:008:014 Thus shalt thou separate the Levites from among the children
of Israel: and the Levites shall be mine.

04:008:015 And after that shall the Levites go in to do the service of
the tabernacle of the congregation: and thou shalt cleanse them, and
offer them for an offering.

04:008:016 For they are wholly given unto me from among the children of
Israel; instead of such as open every womb, even instead of the
firstborn of all the children of Israel, have I taken them unto me.

04:008:017 For all the firstborn of the children of Israel are mine,
both man and beast: on the day that I smote every firstborn in the land
of Egypt I sanctified them for myself.

04:008:018 And I have taken the Levites for all the firstborn of the
children of Israel.

04:008:019 And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and to his
sons from among the children of Israel, to do the service of the
children of Israel in the tabernacle of the congregation, and to make an
atonement for the children of Israel: that there be no plague among the
children of Israel, when the children of Israel come nigh unto the
sanctuary.

04:008:020 And Moses, and Aaron, and all the congregation of the
children of Israel, did to the Levites according unto all that the LORD
commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did the children of Israel
unto them.

04:008:021 And the Levites were purified, and they washed their clothes;
and Aaron offered them as an offering before the LORD; and Aaron made an
atonement for them to cleanse them.

04:008:022 And after that went the Levites in to do their service in the
tabernacle of the congregation before Aaron, and before his sons: as the
LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did they unto them.

04:008:023 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:008:024 This is it that belongeth unto the Levites: from twenty and
five years old and upward they shall go in to wait upon the service of
the tabernacle of the congregation:

04:008:025 And from the age of fifty years they shall cease waiting upon
the service thereof, and shall serve no more:

04:008:026 But shall minister with their brethren in the tabernacle of
the congregation, to keep the charge, and shall do no service. Thus
shalt thou do unto the Levites touching their charge.

04:009:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in
the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land
of Egypt, saying,

04:009:002 Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his
appointed season.

04:009:003 In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep
it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and
according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.

04:009:004 And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should
keep the passover.

04:009:005 And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first
month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that the LORD
commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.

04:009:006 And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body
of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they
came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:

04:009:007 And those men said unto him, We are defiled by the dead body
of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an offering
of the LORD in his appointed season among the children of Israel?

04:009:008 And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what
the LORD will command concerning you.

04:009:009 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:009:010 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you
or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be in
a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto the LORD.

04:009:011 The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall
keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

04:009:012 They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any
bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall
keep it.

04:009:013 But the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and
forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off
from among his people: because he brought not the offering of the LORD
in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.

04:009:014 And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the
passover unto the LORD; according to the ordinance of the passover, and
according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one
ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land.

04:009:015 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud
covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and at even
there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until
the morning.

04:009:016 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the
appearance of fire by night.

04:009:017 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then
after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the
cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.

04:009:018 At the commandment of the LORD the children of Israel
journeyed, and at the commandment of the LORD they pitched: as long as
the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.

04:009:019 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many
days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the LORD, and
journeyed not.

04:009:020 And so it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the
tabernacle; according to the commandment of the LORD they abode in their
tents, and according to the commandment of the LORD they journeyed.

04:009:021 And so it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the
morning, and that the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they
journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the cloud was taken
up, they journeyed.

04:009:022 Or whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the
cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the children of
Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken
up, they journeyed.

04:009:023 At the commandment of the LORD they rested in the tents, and
at the commandment of the LORD they journeyed: they kept the charge of
the LORD, at the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

04:010:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:010:002 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou
make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly,
and for the journeying of the camps.

04:010:003 And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall
assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation.

04:010:004 And if they blow but with one trumpet, then the princes,
which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto
thee.

04:010:005 When ye blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east
parts shall go forward.

04:010:006 When ye blow an alarm the second time, then the camps that
lie on the south side shall take their journey: they shall blow an alarm
for their journeys.

04:010:007 But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye
shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm.

04:010:008 And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the
trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout
your generations.

04:010:009 And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that
oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye
shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from
your enemies.

04:010:010 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days,
and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets
over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace
offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am
the LORD your God.

04:010:011 And it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month,
in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from off the tabernacle
of the testimony.

04:010:012 And the children of Israel took their journeys out of the
wilderness of Sinai; and the cloud rested in the wilderness of Paran.

04:010:013 And they first took their journey according to the
commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

04:010:014 In the first place went the standard of the camp of the
children of Judah according to their armies: and over his host was
Nahshon the son of Amminadab.

04:010:015 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Issachar
was Nethaneel the son of Zuar.

04:010:016 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Zebulun was
Eliab the son of Helon.

04:010:017 And the tabernacle was taken down; and the sons of Gershon
and the sons of Merari set forward, bearing the tabernacle.

04:010:018 And the standard of the camp of Reuben set forward according
to their armies: and over his host was Elizur the son of Shedeur.

04:010:019 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Simeon was
Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.

04:010:020 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Gad was
Eliasaph the son of Deuel.

04:010:021 And the Kohathites set forward, bearing the sanctuary: and
the other did set up the tabernacle against they came.

04:010:022 And the standard of the camp of the children of Ephraim set
forward according to their armies: and over his host was Elishama the
son of Ammihud.

04:010:023 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Manasseh
was Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.

04:010:024 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Benjamin
was Abidan the son of Gideoni.

04:010:025 And the standard of the camp of the children of Dan set
forward, which was the rereward of all the camps throughout their hosts:
and over his host was Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.

04:010:026 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Asher was
Pagiel the son of Ocran.

04:010:027 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Naphtali
was Ahira the son of Enan.

04:010:028 Thus were the journeyings of the children of Israel according
to their armies, when they set forward.

04:010:029 And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite,
Moses' father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD
said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good:
for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel.

04:010:030 And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to
mine own land, and to my kindred.

04:010:031 And he said, Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou
knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou mayest be to us
instead of eyes.

04:010:032 And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that
what goodness the LORD shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee.

04:010:033 And they departed from the mount of the LORD three days'
journey: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them in the
three days' journey, to search out a resting place for them.

04:010:034 And the cloud of the LORD was upon them by day, when they
went out of the camp.

04:010:035 And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses
said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them
that hate thee flee before thee.

04:010:036 And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the many
thousands of Israel.

04:011:001 And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD: and
the LORD heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the LORD
burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of
the camp.

04:011:002 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto
the LORD, the fire was quenched.

04:011:003 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire
of the LORD burnt among them.

04:011:004 And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting:
and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us
flesh to eat?

04:011:005 We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the
cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the
garlick:

04:011:006 But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all,
beside this manna, before our eyes.

04:011:007 And the manna was as coriander seed, and the colour thereof
as the colour of bdellium.

04:011:008 And the people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in
mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of
it: and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil.

04:011:009 And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna
fell upon it.

04:011:010 Then Moses heard the people weep throughout their families,
every man in the door of his tent: and the anger of the LORD was kindled
greatly; Moses also was displeased.

04:011:011 And Moses said unto the LORD, Wherefore hast thou afflicted
thy servant? and wherefore have I not found favour in thy sight, that
thou layest the burden of all this people upon me?

04:011:012 Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that
thou shouldest say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father
beareth the sucking child, unto the land which thou swarest unto their
fathers?

04:011:013 Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for
they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat.

04:011:014 I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is
too heavy for me.

04:011:015 And if thou deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of
hand, if I have found favour in thy sight; and let me not see my
wretchedness.

04:011:016 And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of
the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people,
and officers over them; and bring them unto the tabernacle of the
congregation, that they may stand there with thee.

04:011:017 And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will
take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and
they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it
not thyself alone.

04:011:018 And say thou unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to
morrow, and ye shall eat flesh: for ye have wept in the ears of the
LORD, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in
Egypt: therefore the LORD will give you flesh, and ye shall eat.

04:011:019 Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days,
neither ten days, nor twenty days;

04:011:020 But even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils,
and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the LORD
which is among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth
out of Egypt?

04:011:021 And Moses said, The people, among whom I am, are six hundred
thousand footmen; and thou hast said, I will give them flesh, that they
may eat a whole month.

04:011:022 Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to suffice
them? or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to
suffice them?

04:011:023 And the LORD said unto Moses, Is the LORD's hand waxed short?
thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

04:011:024 And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the
LORD, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set
them round about the tabernacle.

04:011:025 And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and
took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy
elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them,
they prophesied, and did not cease.

04:011:026 But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of
the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit
rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not
out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp.

04:011:027 And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad
and Medad do prophesy in the camp.

04:011:028 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his
young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them.

04:011:029 And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God
that all the LORD's people were prophets, and that the LORD would put
his spirit upon them!

04:011:030 And Moses gat him into the camp, he and the elders of Israel.

04:011:031 And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails
from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day's journey
on this side, and as it were a day's journey on the other side, round
about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the
earth.

04:011:032 And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and
all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least
gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves
round about the camp.

04:011:033 And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was
chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the
LORD smote the people with a very great plague.

04:011:034 And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah:
because there they buried the people that lusted.

04:011:035 And the people journeyed from Kibrothhattaavah unto Hazeroth;
and abode at Hazeroth.

04:012:001 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the
Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian
woman.

04:012:002 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses?
hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it.

04:012:003 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which
were upon the face of the earth.)

04:012:004 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and
unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation.
And they three came out.

04:012:005 And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood
in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they
both came forth.

04:012:006 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among
you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will
speak unto him in a dream.

04:012:007 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine
house.

04:012:008 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and
not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold:
wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?

04:012:009 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he
departed.

04:012:010 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold,
Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and,
behold, she was leprous.

04:012:011 And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay
not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have
sinned.

04:012:012 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half
consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb.

04:012:013 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I
beseech thee.

04:012:014 And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in
her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut out from
the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in again.

04:012:015 And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the
people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again.

04:012:016 And afterward the people removed from Hazeroth, and pitched
in the wilderness of Paran.

04:013:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:013:002 Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which
I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers
shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them.

04:013:003 And Moses by the commandment of the LORD sent them from the
wilderness of Paran: all those men were heads of the children of Israel.

04:013:004 And these were their names: of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua
the son of Zaccur.

04:013:005 Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori.

04:013:006 Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.

04:013:007 Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph.

04:013:008 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun.

04:013:009 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu.

04:013:010 Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi.

04:013:011 Of the tribe of Joseph, namely, of the tribe of Manasseh,
Gaddi the son of Susi.

04:013:012 Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli.

04:013:013 Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael.

04:013:014 Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi.

04:013:015 Of the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi.

04:013:016 These are the names of the men which Moses sent to spy out
the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua.

04:013:017 And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said
unto them, Get you up this way southward, and go up into the mountain:

04:013:018 And see the land, what it is, and the people that dwelleth
therein, whether they be strong or weak, few or many;

04:013:019 And what the land is that they dwell in, whether it be good
or bad; and what cities they be that they dwell in, whether in tents, or
in strong holds;

04:013:020 And what the land is, whether it be fat or lean, whether
there be wood therein, or not. And be ye of good courage, and bring of
the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time of the firstripe
grapes.

04:013:021 So they went up, and searched the land from the wilderness of
Zin unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath.

04:013:022 And they ascended by the south, and came unto Hebron; where
Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, were. (Now Hebron was
built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)

04:013:023 And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from
thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two
upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.

04:013:024 The place was called the brook Eshcol, because of the cluster
of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from thence.

04:013:025 And they returned from searching of the land after forty
days.

04:013:026 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the
congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to
Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation,
and shewed them the fruit of the land.

04:013:027 And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither
thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is
the fruit of it.

04:013:028 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and
the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children
of Anak there.

04:013:029 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the
Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains:
and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan.

04:013:030 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us
go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.

04:013:031 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go
up against the people; for they are stronger than we.

04:013:032 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had
searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we
have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants
thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great
stature.

04:013:033 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of
the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were
in their sight.

04:014:001 And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried;
and the people wept that night.

04:014:002 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and
against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that
we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this
wilderness!

04:014:003 And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to
fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey?
were it not better for us to return into Egypt?

04:014:004 And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let
us return into Egypt.

04:014:005 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the
assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.

04:014:006 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh,
which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:

04:014:007 And they spake unto all the company of the children of
Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an
exceeding good land.

04:014:008 If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this
land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.

04:014:009 Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the
people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed
from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.

04:014:010 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the
glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before
all the children of Israel.

04:014:011 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people
provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the
signs which I have shewed among them?

04:014:012 I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them,
and will make of thee a greater nation and mightier than they.

04:014:013 And Moses said unto the LORD, Then the Egyptians shall hear
it, (for thou broughtest up this people in thy might from among them;)

04:014:014 And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land: for
they have heard that thou LORD art among this people, that thou LORD art
seen face to face, and that thy cloud standeth over them, and that thou
goest before them, by day time in a pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar
of fire by night.

04:014:015 Now if thou shalt kill all this people as one man, then the
nations which have heard the fame of thee will speak, saying,

04:014:016 Because the LORD was not able to bring this people into the
land which he sware unto them, therefore he hath slain them in the
wilderness.

04:014:017 And now, I beseech thee, let the power of my Lord be great,
according as thou hast spoken, saying,

04:014:018 The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving
iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty,
visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third
and fourth generation.

04:014:019 Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according
unto the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven this people,
from Egypt even until now.

04:014:020 And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

04:014:021 But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with
the glory of the LORD.

04:014:022 Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my
miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted
me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;

04:014:023 Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their
fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:

04:014:024 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him,
and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he
went; and his seed shall possess it.

04:014:025 (Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley.)
Tomorrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way of the Red
sea.

04:014:026 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

04:014:027 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which
murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of
Israel, which they murmur against me.

04:014:028 Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have
spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:

04:014:029 Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that
were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years
old and upward which have murmured against me.

04:014:030 Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I
sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and
Joshua the son of Nun.

04:014:031 But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them
will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.

04:014:032 But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this
wilderness.

04:014:033 And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years,
and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the
wilderness.

04:014:034 After the number of the days in which ye searched the land,
even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities,
even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.

04:014:035 I the LORD have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil
congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness
they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.

04:014:036 And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who
returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by
bringing up a slander upon the land,

04:014:037 Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the
land, died by the plague before the LORD.

04:014:038 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh,
which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still.

04:014:039 And Moses told these sayings unto all the children of Israel:
and the people mourned greatly.

04:014:040 And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up into
the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we be here, and will go up unto the
place which the LORD hath promised: for we have sinned.

04:014:041 And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the
commandment of the LORD? but it shall not prosper.

04:014:042 Go not up, for the LORD is not among you; that ye be not
smitten before your enemies.

04:014:043 For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you,
and ye shall fall by the sword: because ye are turned away from the
LORD, therefore the LORD will not be with you.

04:014:044 But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless
the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and Moses, departed not out of the
camp.

04:014:045 Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites which dwelt
in that hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, even unto Hormah.

04:015:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:015:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye
be come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you,

04:015:003 And will make an offering by fire unto the LORD, a burnt
offering, or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill offering,
or in your solemn feasts, to make a sweet savour unto the LORD, of the
herd or of the flock:

04:015:004 Then shall he that offereth his offering unto the LORD bring
a meat offering of a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of
an hin of oil.

04:015:005 And the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering
shalt thou prepare with the burnt offering or sacrifice, for one lamb.

04:015:006 Or for a ram, thou shalt prepare for a meat offering two
tenth deals of flour mingled with the third part of an hin of oil.

04:015:007 And for a drink offering thou shalt offer the third part of
an hin of wine, for a sweet savour unto the LORD.

04:015:008 And when thou preparest a bullock for a burnt offering, or
for a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings unto the LORD:

04:015:009 Then shall he bring with a bullock a meat offering of three
tenth deals of flour mingled with half an hin of oil.

04:015:010 And thou shalt bring for a drink offering half an hin of
wine, for an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

04:015:011 Thus shall it be done for one bullock, or for one ram, or for
a lamb, or a kid.

04:015:012 According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do
to every one according to their number.

04:015:013 All that are born of the country shall do these things after
this manner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour
unto the LORD.

04:015:014 And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you
in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet
savour unto the LORD; as ye do, so he shall do.

04:015:015 One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and
also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in
your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD.

04:015:016 One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger
that sojourneth with you.

04:015:017 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:015:018 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye
come into the land whither I bring you,

04:015:019 Then it shall be, that, when ye eat of the bread of the land,
ye shall offer up an heave offering unto the LORD.

04:015:020 Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for an
heave offering: as ye do the heave offering of the threshingfloor, so
shall ye heave it.

04:015:021 Of the first of your dough ye shall give unto the LORD an
heave offering in your generations.

04:015:022 And if ye have erred, and not observed all these
commandments, which the LORD hath spoken unto Moses,

04:015:023 Even all that the LORD hath commanded you by the hand of
Moses, from the day that the LORD commanded Moses, and henceforward
among your generations;

04:015:024 Then it shall be, if ought be committed by ignorance without
the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer
one young bullock for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour unto the
LORD, with his meat offering, and his drink offering, according to the
manner, and one kid of the goats for a sin offering.

04:015:025 And the priest shall make an atonement for all the
congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them;
for it is ignorance: and they shall bring their offering, a sacrifice
made by fire unto the LORD, and their sin offering before the LORD, for
their ignorance:

04:015:026 And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the children
of Israel, and the stranger that sojourneth among them; seeing all the
people were in ignorance.

04:015:027 And if any soul sin through ignorance, then he shall bring a
she goat of the first year for a sin offering.

04:015:028 And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that
sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the LORD, to
make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him.

04:015:029 Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance,
both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the
stranger that sojourneth among them.

04:015:030 But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be
born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that
soul shall be cut off from among his people.

04:015:031 Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath
broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity
shall be upon him.

04:015:032 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they
found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.

04:015:033 And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto
Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.

04:015:034 And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what
should be done to him.

04:015:035 And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to
death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the
camp.

04:015:036 And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and
stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses.

04:015:037 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:015:038 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they
make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their
generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband
of blue:

04:015:039 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon
it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that
ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use
to go a whoring:

04:015:040 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy
unto your God.

04:015:041 I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of
Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God.

04:016:001 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of
Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of
Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men:

04:016:002 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children
of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the
congregation, men of renown:

04:016:003 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and
against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all
the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among
them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the
LORD?

04:016:004 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:

04:016:005 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying,
Even to morrow the LORD will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will
cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he
cause to come near unto him.

04:016:006 This do; Take you censers, Korah, and all his company;

04:016:007 And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the LORD
to morrow: and it shall be that the man whom the LORD doth choose, he
shall be holy: ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.

04:016:008 And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi:

04:016:009 Seemeth it but a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel
hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to
himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand
before the congregation to minister unto them?

04:016:010 And he hath brought thee near to him, and all thy brethren
the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the priesthood also?

04:016:011 For which cause both thou and all thy company are gathered
together against the LORD: and what is Aaron, that ye murmur against
him?

04:016:012 And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab:
which said, We will not come up:

04:016:013 Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a
land that floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness,
except thou make thyself altogether a prince over us?

04:016:014 Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land that floweth
with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards:
wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up.

04:016:015 And Moses was very wroth, and said unto the LORD, Respect not
thou their offering: I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I
hurt one of them.

04:016:016 And Moses said unto Korah, Be thou and all thy company before
the LORD, thou, and they, and Aaron, to morrow:

04:016:017 And take every man his censer, and put incense in them, and
bring ye before the LORD every man his censer, two hundred and fifty
censers; thou also, and Aaron, each of you his censer.

04:016:018 And they took every man his censer, and put fire in them, and
laid incense thereon, and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation with Moses and Aaron.

04:016:019 And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of the LORD
appeared unto all the congregation.

04:016:020 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

04:016:021 Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may
consume them in a moment.

04:016:022 And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of
the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with
all the congregation?

04:016:023 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:016:024 Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about
the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.

04:016:025 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the
elders of Israel followed him.

04:016:026 And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray
you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of their's,
lest ye be consumed in all their sins.

04:016:027 So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and
Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the
door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little
children.

04:016:028 And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent
me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind.

04:016:029 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be
visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath not sent me.

04:016:030 But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her
mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they
go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have
provoked the LORD.

04:016:031 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all
these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:

04:016:032 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and
their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their
goods.

04:016:033 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into
the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among
the congregation.

04:016:034 And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of
them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.

04:016:035 And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two
hundred and fifty men that offered incense.

04:016:036 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:016:037 Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take
up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for
they are hallowed.

04:016:038 The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let
them make them broad plates for a covering of the altar: for they
offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and they
shall be a sign unto the children of Israel.

04:016:039 And Eleazar the priest took the brasen censers, wherewith
they that were burnt had offered; and they were made broad plates for a
covering of the altar:

04:016:040 To be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no
stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense
before the LORD; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the
LORD said to him by the hand of Moses.

04:016:041 But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of
Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, Ye have killed
the people of the LORD.

04:016:042 And it came to pass, when the congregation was gathered
against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the tabernacle
of the congregation: and, behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of
the LORD appeared.

04:016:043 And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the
congregation.

04:016:044 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:016:045 Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume
them as in a moment. And they fell upon their faces.

04:016:046 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire
therein from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the
congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath gone
out from the LORD; the plague is begun.

04:016:047 And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of
the congregation; and, behold, the plague was begun among the people:
and he put on incense, and made an atonement for the people.

04:016:048 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague
was stayed.

04:016:049 Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and
seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of Korah.

04:016:050 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle
of the congregation: and the plague was stayed.

04:017:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:017:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, and take of every one of
them a rod according to the house of their fathers, of all their princes
according to the house of their fathers twelve rods: write thou every
man's name upon his rod.

04:017:003 And thou shalt write Aaron's name upon the rod of Levi: for
one rod shall be for the head of the house of their fathers.

04:017:004 And thou shalt lay them up in the tabernacle of the
congregation before the testimony, where I will meet with you.

04:017:005 And it shall come to pass, that the man's rod, whom I shall
choose, shall blossom: and I will make to cease from me the murmurings
of the children of Israel, whereby they murmur against you.

04:017:006 And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, and every one of
their princes gave him a rod apiece, for each prince one, according to
their fathers' houses, even twelve rods: and the rod of Aaron was among
their rods.

04:017:007 And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the tabernacle
of witness.

04:017:008 And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the
tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of
Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and
yielded almonds.

04:017:009 And Moses brought out all the rods from before the LORD unto
all the children of Israel: and they looked, and took every man his rod.

04:017:010 And the LORD said unto Moses, Bring Aaron's rod again before
the testimony, to be kept for a token against the rebels; and thou shalt
quite take away their murmurings from me, that they die not.

04:017:011 And Moses did so: as the LORD commanded him, so did he.

04:017:012 And the children of Israel spake unto Moses, saying, Behold,
we die, we perish, we all perish.

04:017:013 Whosoever cometh any thing near unto the tabernacle of the
LORD shall die: shall we be consumed with dying?

04:018:001 And the LORD said unto Aaron, Thou and thy sons and thy
father's house with thee shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary: and
thou and thy sons with thee shall bear the iniquity of your priesthood.

04:018:002 And thy brethren also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy
father, bring thou with thee, that they may be joined unto thee, and
minister unto thee: but thou and thy sons with thee shall minister
before the tabernacle of witness.

04:018:003 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the
tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary
and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die.

04:018:004 And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of
the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the
tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come nigh unto you.

04:018:005 And ye shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge
of the altar: that there be no wrath any more upon the children of
Israel.

04:018:006 And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from
among the children of Israel: to you they are given as a gift for the
LORD, to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:018:007 Therefore thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your
priest's office for everything of the altar, and within the vail; and ye
shall serve: I have given your priest's office unto you as a service of
gift: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

04:018:008 And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Behold, I also have given thee
the charge of mine heave offerings of all the hallowed things of the
children of Israel; unto thee have I given them by reason of the
anointing, and to thy sons, by an ordinance for ever.

04:018:009 This shall be thine of the most holy things, reserved from
the fire: every oblation of their's, every meat offering of their's, and
every sin offering of their's, and every trespass offering of their's
which they shall render unto me, shall be most holy for thee and for thy
sons.

04:018:010 In the most holy place shalt thou eat it; every male shall
eat it: it shall be holy unto thee.

04:018:011 And this is thine; the heave offering of their gift, with all
the wave offerings of the children of Israel: I have given them unto
thee, and to thy sons and to thy daughters with thee, by a statute for
ever: every one that is clean in thy house shall eat of it.

04:018:012 All the best of the oil, and all the best of the wine, and of
the wheat, the firstfruits of them which they shall offer unto the LORD,
them have I given thee.

04:018:013 And whatsoever is first ripe in the land, which they shall
bring unto the LORD, shall be thine; every one that is clean in thine
house shall eat of it.

04:018:014 Every thing devoted in Israel shall be thine.

04:018:015 Every thing that openeth the matrix in all flesh, which they
bring unto the LORD, whether it be of men or beasts, shall be thine:
nevertheless the firstborn of man shalt thou surely redeem, and the
firstling of unclean beasts shalt thou redeem.

04:018:016 And those that are to be redeemed from a month old shalt thou
redeem, according to thine estimation, for the money of five shekels,
after the shekel of the sanctuary, which is twenty gerahs.

04:018:017 But the firstling of a cow, or the firstling of a sheep, or
the firstling of a goat, thou shalt not redeem; they are holy: thou
shalt sprinkle their blood upon the altar, and shalt burn their fat for
an offering made by fire, for a sweet savour unto the LORD.

04:018:018 And the flesh of them shall be thine, as the wave breast and
as the right shoulder are thine.

04:018:019 All the heave offerings of the holy things, which the
children of Israel offer unto the LORD, have I given thee, and thy sons
and thy daughters with thee, by a statute for ever: it is a covenant of
salt for ever before the LORD unto thee and to thy seed with thee.

04:018:020 And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance
in their land, neither shalt thou have any part among them: I am thy
part and thine inheritance among the children of Israel.

04:018:021 And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth
in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even
the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:018:022 Neither must the children of Israel henceforth come nigh the
tabernacle of the congregation, lest they bear sin, and die.

04:018:023 But the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the
congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity: it shall be a statute
for ever throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel
they have no inheritance.

04:018:024 But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as
an heave offering unto the LORD, I have given to the Levites to inherit:
therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall
have no inheritance.

04:018:025 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:018:026 Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take
of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them
for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for
the LORD, even a tenth part of the tithe.

04:018:027 And this your heave offering shall be reckoned unto you, as
though it were the corn of the threshingfloor, and as the fulness of the
winepress.

04:018:028 Thus ye also shall offer an heave offering unto the LORD of
all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel; and ye
shall give thereof the LORD's heave offering to Aaron the priest.

04:018:029 Out of all your gifts ye shall offer every heave offering of
the LORD, of all the best thereof, even the hallowed part thereof out of
it.

04:018:030 Therefore thou shalt say unto them, When ye have heaved the
best thereof from it, then it shall be counted unto the Levites as the
increase of the threshingfloor, and as the increase of the winepress.

04:018:031 And ye shall eat it in every place, ye and your households:
for it is your reward for your service in the tabernacle of the
congregation.

04:018:032 And ye shall bear no sin by reason of it, when ye have heaved
from it the best of it: neither shall ye pollute the holy things of the
children of Israel, lest ye die.

04:019:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

04:019:002 This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD hath
commanded, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring
thee a red heifer without spot, wherein is no blemish, and upon which
never came yoke:

04:019:003 And ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, that he may
bring her forth without the camp, and one shall slay her before his
face:

04:019:004 And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his
finger, and sprinkle of her blood directly before the tabernacle of the
congregation seven times:

04:019:005 And one shall burn the heifer in his sight; her skin, and her
flesh, and her blood, with her dung, shall he burn:

04:019:006 And the priest shall take cedar wood, and hyssop, and
scarlet, and cast it into the midst of the burning of the heifer.

04:019:007 Then the priest shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe
his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp, and the
priest shall be unclean until the even.

04:019:008 And he that burneth her shall wash his clothes in water, and
bathe his flesh in water, and shall be unclean until the even.

04:019:009 And a man that is clean shall gather up the ashes of the
heifer, and lay them up without the camp in a clean place, and it shall
be kept for the congregation of the children of Israel for a water of
separation: it is a purification for sin.

04:019:010 And he that gathereth the ashes of the heifer shall wash his
clothes, and be unclean until the even: and it shall be unto the
children of Israel, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among them,
for a statute for ever.

04:019:011 He that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean
seven days.

04:019:012 He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and on the
seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself the third
day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean.

04:019:013 Whosoever toucheth the dead body of any man that is dead, and
purifieth not himself, defileth the tabernacle of the LORD; and that
soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water of separation was
not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean; his uncleanness is yet upon
him.

04:019:014 This is the law, when a man dieth in a tent: all that come
into the tent, and all that is in the tent, shall be unclean seven days.

04:019:015 And every open vessel, which hath no covering bound upon it,
is unclean.

04:019:016 And whosoever toucheth one that is slain with a sword in the
open fields, or a dead body, or a bone of a man, or a grave, shall be
unclean seven days.

04:019:017 And for an unclean person they shall take of the ashes of the
burnt heifer of purification for sin, and running water shall be put
thereto in a vessel:

04:019:018 And a clean person shall take hyssop, and dip it in the
water, and sprinkle it upon the tent, and upon all the vessels, and upon
the persons that were there, and upon him that touched a bone, or one
slain, or one dead, or a grave:

04:019:019 And the clean person shall sprinkle upon the unclean on the
third day, and on the seventh day: and on the seventh day he shall
purify himself, and wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and
shall be clean at even.

04:019:020 But the man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify
himself, that soul shall be cut off from among the congregation, because
he hath defiled the sanctuary of the LORD: the water of separation hath
not been sprinkled upon him; he is unclean.

04:019:021 And it shall be a perpetual statute unto them, that he that
sprinkleth the water of separation shall wash his clothes; and he that
toucheth the water of separation shall be unclean until even.

04:019:022 And whatsoever the unclean person toucheth shall be unclean;
and the soul that toucheth it shall be unclean until even.

04:020:001 Then came the children of Israel, even the whole
congregation, into the desert of Zin in the first month: and the people
abode in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there.

04:020:002 And there was no water for the congregation: and they
gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.

04:020:003 And the people chode with Moses, and spake, saying, Would God
that we had died when our brethren died before the LORD!

04:020:004 And why have ye brought up the congregation of the LORD into
this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?

04:020:005 And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to
bring us in unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or
of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink.

04:020:006 And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly
unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell upon
their faces: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto them.

04:020:007 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:020:008 Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou,
and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and
it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water
out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts
drink.

04:020:009 And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded
him.

04:020:010 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before
the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you
water out of this rock?

04:020:011 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the
rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation
drank, and their beasts also.

04:020:012 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed
me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore
ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given
them.

04:020:013 This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel
strove with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them.

04:020:014 And Moses sent messengers from Kadesh unto the king of Edom,
Thus saith thy brother Israel, Thou knowest all the travail that hath
befallen us:

04:020:015 How our fathers went down into Egypt, and we have dwelt in
Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians vexed us, and our fathers:

04:020:016 And when we cried unto the LORD, he heard our voice, and sent
an angel, and hath brought us forth out of Egypt: and, behold, we are in
Kadesh, a city in the uttermost of thy border:

04:020:017 Let us pass, I pray thee, through thy country: we will not
pass through the fields, or through the vineyards, neither will we drink
of the water of the wells: we will go by the king's high way, we will
not turn to the right hand nor to the left, until we have passed thy
borders.

04:020:018 And Edom said unto him, Thou shalt not pass by me, lest I
come out against thee with the sword.

04:020:019 And the children of Israel said unto him, We will go by the
high way: and if I and my cattle drink of thy water, then I will pay for
it: I will only, without doing anything else, go through on my feet.

04:020:020 And he said, Thou shalt not go through. And Edom came out
against him with much people, and with a strong hand.

04:020:021 Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his border:
wherefore Israel turned away from him.

04:020:022 And the children of Israel, even the whole congregation,
journeyed from Kadesh, and came unto mount Hor.

04:020:023 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the
coast of the land of Edom, saying,

04:020:024 Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he shall not
enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel,
because ye rebelled against my word at the water of Meribah.

04:020:025 Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount
Hor:

04:020:026 And strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar
his son: and Aaron shall be gathered unto his people, and shall die
there.

04:020:027 And Moses did as the LORD commanded: and they went up into
mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation.

04:020:028 And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon
Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there in the top of the mount: and Moses
and Eleazar came down from the mount.

04:020:029 And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, they
mourned for Aaron thirty days, even all the house of Israel.

04:021:001 And when king Arad the Canaanite, which dwelt in the south,
heard tell that Israel came by the way of the spies; then he fought
against Israel, and took some of them prisoners.

04:021:002 And Israel vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou wilt
indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy
their cities.

04:021:003 And the LORD hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered
up the Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and
he called the name of the place Hormah.

04:021:004 And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea,
to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much
discouraged because of the way.

04:021:005 And the people spake against God, and against Moses,
Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness?
for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth
this light bread.

04:021:006 And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they
bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

04:021:007 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned,
for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the
LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the
people.

04:021:008 And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and
set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is
bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

04:021:009 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole,
and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he
beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

04:021:010 And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in Oboth.

04:021:011 And they journeyed from Oboth, and pitched at Ijeabarim, in
the wilderness which is before Moab, toward the sunrising.

04:021:012 From thence they removed, and pitched in the valley of Zared.

04:021:013 From thence they removed, and pitched on the other side of
Arnon, which is in the wilderness that cometh out of the coasts of the
Amorites: for Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the
Amorites.

04:021:014 Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars of the LORD,
What he did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of Arnon,

04:021:015 And at the stream of the brooks that goeth down to the
dwelling of Ar, and lieth upon the border of Moab.

04:021:016 And from thence they went to Beer: that is the well whereof
the LORD spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give
them water.

04:021:017 Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well; sing ye unto
it:

04:021:018 The princes digged the well, the nobles of the people digged
it, by the direction of the lawgiver, with their staves. And from the
wilderness they went to Mattanah:

04:021:019 And from Mattanah to Nahaliel: and from Nahaliel to Bamoth:

04:021:020 And from Bamoth in the valley, that is in the country of
Moab, to the top of Pisgah, which looketh toward Jeshimon.

04:021:021 And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites,
saying,

04:021:022 Let me pass through thy land: we will not turn into the
fields, or into the vineyards; we will not drink of the waters of the
well: but we will go along by the king's high way, until we be past thy
borders.

04:021:023 And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border:
but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel
into the wilderness: and he came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel.

04:021:024 And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and
possessed his land from Arnon unto Jabbok, even unto the children of
Ammon: for the border of the children of Ammon was strong.

04:021:025 And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the
cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the villages thereof.

04:021:026 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites,
who had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all his land
out of his hand, even unto Arnon.

04:021:027 Wherefore they that speak in proverbs say, Come into Heshbon,
let the city of Sihon be built and prepared:

04:021:028 For there is a fire gone out of Heshbon, a flame from the
city of Sihon: it hath consumed Ar of Moab, and the lords of the high
places of Arnon.

04:021:029 Woe to thee, Moab! thou art undone, O people of Chemosh: he
hath given his sons that escaped, and his daughters, into captivity unto
Sihon king of the Amorites.

04:021:030 We have shot at them; Heshbon is perished even unto Dibon,
and we have laid them waste even unto Nophah, which reacheth unto
Medeba.

04:021:031 Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites.

04:021:032 And Moses sent to spy out Jaazer, and they took the villages
thereof, and drove out the Amorites that were there.

04:021:033 And they turned and went up by the way of Bashan: and Og the
king of Bashan went out against them, he, and all his people, to the
battle at Edrei.

04:021:034 And the LORD said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have
delivered him into thy hand, and all his people, and his land; and thou
shalt do to him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which
dwelt at Heshbon.

04:021:035 So they smote him, and his sons, and all his people, until
there was none left him alive: and they possessed his land.

04:022:001 And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in the
plains of Moab on this side Jordan by Jericho.

04:022:002 And Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to
the Amorites.

04:022:003 And Moab was sore afraid of the people, because they were
many: and Moab was distressed because of the children of Israel.

04:022:004 And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now shall this
company lick up all that are round about us, as the ox licketh up the
grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor was king of the Moabites
at that time.

04:022:005 He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to
Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of his people,
to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt:
behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against
me:

04:022:006 Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for
they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may
smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land: for I wot that he
whom thou blessest is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed.

04:022:007 And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with
the rewards of divination in their hand; and they came unto Balaam, and
spake unto him the words of Balak.

04:022:008 And he said unto them, Lodge here this night, and I will
bring you word again, as the LORD shall speak unto me: and the princes
of Moab abode with Balaam.

04:022:009 And God came unto Balaam, and said, What men are these with
thee?

04:022:010 And Balaam said unto God, Balak the son of Zippor, king of
Moab, hath sent unto me, saying,

04:022:011 Behold, there is a people come out of Egypt, which covereth
the face of the earth: come now, curse me them; peradventure I shall be
able to overcome them, and drive them out.

04:022:012 And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them; thou
shalt not curse the people: for they are blessed.

04:022:013 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and said unto the princes
of Balak, Get you into your land: for the LORD refuseth to give me leave
to go with you.

04:022:014 And the princes of Moab rose up, and they went unto Balak,
and said, Balaam refuseth to come with us.

04:022:015 And Balak sent yet again princes, more, and more honourable
than they.

04:022:016 And they came to Balaam, and said to him, Thus saith Balak
the son of Zippor, Let nothing, I pray thee, hinder thee from coming
unto me:

04:022:017 For I will promote thee unto very great honour, and I will do
whatsoever thou sayest unto me: come therefore, I pray thee, curse me
this people.

04:022:018 And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If
Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go
beyond the word of the LORD my God, to do less or more.

04:022:019 Now therefore, I pray you, tarry ye also here this night,
that I may know what the LORD will say unto me more.

04:022:020 And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the
men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the word which
I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do.

04:022:021 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and
went with the princes of Moab.

04:022:022 And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of
the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was
riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.

04:022:023 And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way,
and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the
way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into
the way.

04:022:024 But the angel of the LORD stood in a path of the vineyards, a
wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.

04:022:025 And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she thrust
herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and
he smote her again.

04:022:026 And the angel of the LORD went further, and stood in a narrow
place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.

04:022:027 And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down
under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with
a staff.

04:022:028 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto
Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these
three times?

04:022:029 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I
would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.

04:022:030 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which
thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont
to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay.

04:022:031 Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel
of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he
bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

04:022:032 And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou
smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand
thee, because thy way is perverse before me:

04:022:033 And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times:
unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and
saved her alive.

04:022:034 And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, I have sinned;
for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore,
if it displease thee, I will get me back again.

04:022:035 And the angel of the LORD said unto Balaam, Go with the men:
but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak.
So Balaam went with the princes of Balak.

04:022:036 And when Balak heard that Balaam was come, he went out to
meet him unto a city of Moab, which is in the border of Arnon, which is
in the utmost coast.

04:022:037 And Balak said unto Balaam, Did I not earnestly send unto
thee to call thee? wherefore camest thou not unto me? am I not able
indeed to promote thee to honour?

04:022:038 And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I
now any power at all to say any thing? the word that God putteth in my
mouth, that shall I speak.

04:022:039 And Balaam went with Balak, and they came unto Kirjathhuzoth.

04:022:040 And Balak offered oxen and sheep, and sent to Balaam, and to
the princes that were with him.

04:022:041 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Balak took Balaam,
and brought him up into the high places of Baal, that thence he might
see the utmost part of the people.

04:023:001 And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and
prepare me here seven oxen and seven rams.

04:023:002 And Balak did as Balaam had spoken; and Balak and Balaam
offered on every altar a bullock and a ram.

04:023:003 And Balaam said unto Balak, Stand by thy burnt offering, and
I will go: peradventure the LORD will come to meet me: and whatsoever he
sheweth me I will tell thee. And he went to an high place.

04:023:004 And God met Balaam: and he said unto him, I have prepared
seven altars, and I have offered upon every altar a bullock and a ram.

04:023:005 And the LORD put a word in Balaam's mouth, and said, Return
unto Balak, and thus thou shalt speak.

04:023:006 And he returned unto him, and, lo, he stood by his burnt
sacrifice, he, and all the princes of Moab.

04:023:007 And he took up his parable, and said, Balak the king of Moab
hath brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east, saying,
Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel.

04:023:008 How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I
defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?

04:023:009 For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I
behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned
among the nations.

04:023:010 Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth
part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last
end be like his!

04:023:011 And Balak said unto Balaam, What hast thou done unto me? I
took thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast blessed them
altogether.

04:023:012 And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that
which the LORD hath put in my mouth?

04:023:013 And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto
another place, from whence thou mayest see them: thou shalt see but the
utmost part of them, and shalt not see them all: and curse me them from
thence.

04:023:014 And he brought him into the field of Zophim, to the top of
Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered a bullock and a ram on every
altar.

04:023:015 And he said unto Balak, Stand here by thy burnt offering,
while I meet the LORD yonder.

04:023:016 And the LORD met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and
said, Go again unto Balak, and say thus.

04:023:017 And when he came to him, behold, he stood by his burnt
offering, and the princes of Moab with him. And Balak said unto him,
What hath the LORD spoken?

04:023:018 And he took up his parable, and said, Rise up, Balak, and
hear; hearken unto me, thou son of Zippor:

04:023:019 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man,
that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he
spoken, and shall he not make it good?

04:023:020 Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath
blessed; and I cannot reverse it.

04:023:021 He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen
perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a
king is among them.

04:023:022 God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the
strength of an unicorn.

04:023:023 Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is
there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be
said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!

04:023:024 Behold, the people shall rise up as a great lion, and lift up
himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat of the prey,
and drink the blood of the slain.

04:023:025 And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them at all, nor
bless them at all.

04:023:026 But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, Told not I thee,
saying, All that the LORD speaketh, that I must do?

04:023:027 And Balak said unto Balaam, Come, I pray thee, I will bring
thee unto another place; peradventure it will please God that thou
mayest curse me them from thence.

04:023:028 And Balak brought Balaam unto the top of Peor, that looketh
toward Jeshimon.

04:023:029 And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and
prepare me here seven bullocks and seven rams.

04:023:030 And Balak did as Balaam had said, and offered a bullock and a
ram on every altar.

04:024:001 And when Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel,
he went not, as at other times, to seek for enchantments, but he set his
face toward the wilderness.

04:024:002 And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in
his tents according to their tribes; and the spirit of God came upon
him.

04:024:003 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor
hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

04:024:004 He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the
vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:

04:024:005 How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O
Israel!

04:024:006 As the valleys are they spread forth, as gardens by the
river's side, as the trees of lign aloes which the LORD hath planted,
and as cedar trees beside the waters.

04:024:007 He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed
shall be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his
kingdom shall be exalted.

04:024:008 God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the
strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and
shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.

04:024:009 He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who
shall stir him up? Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he
that curseth thee.

04:024:010 And Balak's anger was kindled against Balaam, and he smote
his hands together: and Balak said unto Balaam, I called thee to curse
mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast altogether blessed them these three
times.

04:024:011 Therefore now flee thou to thy place: I thought to promote
thee unto great honour; but, lo, the LORD hath kept thee back from
honour.

04:024:012 And Balaam said unto Balak, Spake I not also to thy
messengers which thou sentest unto me, saying,

04:024:013 If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I
cannot go beyond the commandment of the LORD, to do either good or bad
of mine own mind; but what the LORD saith, that will I speak?

04:024:014 And now, behold, I go unto my people: come therefore, and I
will advertise thee what this people shall do to thy people in the
latter days.

04:024:015 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor
hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

04:024:016 He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the
knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty,
falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:

04:024:017 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not
nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out
of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the
children of Sheth.

04:024:018 And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a
possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly.

04:024:019 Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and
shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.

04:024:020 And when he looked on Amalek, he took up his parable, and
said, Amalek was the first of the nations; but his latter end shall be
that he perish for ever.

04:024:021 And he looked on the Kenites, and took up his parable, and
said, Strong is thy dwellingplace, and thou puttest thy nest in a rock.

04:024:022 Nevertheless the Kenite shall be wasted, until Asshur shall
carry thee away captive.

04:024:023 And he took up his parable, and said, Alas, who shall live
when God doeth this!

04:024:024 And ships shall come from the coast of Chittim, and shall
afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and he also shall perish for
ever.

04:024:025 And Balaam rose up, and went and returned to his place: and
Balak also went his way.

04:025:001 And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit
whoredom with the daughters of Moab.

04:025:002 And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods:
and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.

04:025:003 And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the
LORD was kindled against Israel.

04:025:004 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the
people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the
fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel.

04:025:005 And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one
his men that were joined unto Baalpeor.

04:025:006 And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought
unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the
sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were
weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:025:007 And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the
priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a
javelin in his hand;

04:025:008 And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust
both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her
belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.

04:025:009 And those that died in the plague were twenty and four
thousand.

04:025:010 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:025:011 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest,
hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was
zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of
Israel in my jealousy.

04:025:012 Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:

04:025:013 And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the
covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his
God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.

04:025:014 Now the name of the Israelite that was slain, even that was
slain with the Midianitish woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu, a prince
of a chief house among the Simeonites.

04:025:015 And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain was
Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he was head over a people, and of a chief
house in Midian.

04:025:016 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:025:017 Vex the Midianites, and smite them:

04:025:018 For they vex you with their wiles, wherewith they have
beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the
daughter of a prince of Midian, their sister, which was slain in the day
of the plague for Peor's sake.

04:026:001 And it came to pass after the plague, that the LORD spake
unto Moses and unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, saying,

04:026:002 Take the sum of all the congregation of the children of
Israel, from twenty years old and upward, throughout their fathers'
house, all that are able to go to war in Israel.

04:026:003 And Moses and Eleazar the priest spake with them in the
plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying,

04:026:004 Take the sum of the people, from twenty years old and upward;
as the LORD commanded Moses and the children of Israel, which went forth
out of the land of Egypt.

04:026:005 Reuben, the eldest son of Israel: the children of Reuben;
Hanoch, of whom cometh the family of the Hanochites: of Pallu, the
family of the Palluites:

of the Carmites.

04:026:007 These are the families of the Reubenites: and they that were
numbered of them were forty and three thousand and seven hundred and
thirty.

04:026:008 And the sons of Pallu; Eliab.

04:026:009 And the sons of Eliab; Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. This
is that Dathan and Abiram, which were famous in the congregation, who
strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korah, when
they strove against the LORD:

04:026:010 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up
together with Korah, when that company died, what time the fire devoured
two hundred and fifty men: and they became a sign.

04:026:011 Notwithstanding the children of Korah died not.

those that were numbered of them, forty thousand and five hundred.

04:026:030 These are the sons of Gilead: of Jeezer, the family of the

04:026:032 And of Shemida, the family of the Shemidaites: and of Hepher,
the family of the Hepherites.

04:026:033 And Zelophehad the son of Hepher had no sons, but daughters:
and the names of the daughters of Zelophehad were Mahlah, and Noah,
Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.

04:026:034 These are the families of Manasseh, and those that were

hundred.

thousand and four hundred.

04:026:051 These were the numbered of the children of Israel, six
hundred thousand and a thousand seven hundred and thirty.

04:026:052 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:026:053 Unto these the land shall be divided for an inheritance
according to the number of names.

04:026:054 To many thou shalt give the more inheritance, and to few thou
shalt give the less inheritance: to every one shall his inheritance be
given according to those that were numbered of him.

04:026:055 Notwithstanding the land shall be divided by lot: according
to the names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit.

04:026:056 According to the lot shall the possession thereof be divided
between many and few.

04:026:057 And these are they that were numbered of the Levites after
their families: of Gershon, the family of the Gershonites: of Kohath,

Amram.

04:026:059 And the name of Amram's wife was Jochebed, the daughter of
Levi, whom her mother bare to Levi in Egypt: and she bare unto Amram
Aaron and Moses, and Miriam their sister.

04:026:060 And unto Aaron was born Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and
Ithamar.

04:026:061 And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire
before the LORD.

04:026:062 And those that were numbered of them were twenty and three
thousand, all males from a month old and upward: for they were not
numbered among the children of Israel, because there was no inheritance
given them among the children of Israel.

04:026:063 These are they that were numbered by Moses and Eleazar the
priest, who numbered the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by
Jordan near Jericho.

04:026:064 But among these there was not a man of them whom Moses and
Aaron the priest numbered, when they numbered the children of Israel in
the wilderness of Sinai.

04:026:065 For the LORD had said of them, They shall surely die in the
wilderness. And there was not left a man of them, save Caleb the son of
Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

04:027:001 Then came the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the
son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families
of Manasseh the son of Joseph: and these are the names of his daughters;
Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah.

04:027:002 And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest,
and before the princes and all the congregation, by the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

04:027:003 Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not in the
company of them that gathered themselves together against the LORD in
the company of Korah; but died in his own sin, and had no sons.

04:027:004 Why should the name of our father be done away from among his
family, because he hath no son? Give unto us therefore a possession
among the brethren of our father.

04:027:005 And Moses brought their cause before the LORD.

04:027:006 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:027:007 The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely
give them a possession of an inheritance among their father's brethren;
and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them.

04:027:008 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If
a man die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass
unto his daughter.

04:027:009 And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his
inheritance unto his brethren.

04:027:010 And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his
inheritance unto his father's brethren.

04:027:011 And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his
inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he
shall possess it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute
of judgment, as the LORD commanded Moses.

04:027:012 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount
Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.

04:027:013 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto
thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered.

04:027:014 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin,
in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before
their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of
Zin.

04:027:015 And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,

04:027:016 Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man
over the congregation,

04:027:017 Which may go out before them, and which may go in before
them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the
congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.

04:027:018 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of
Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;

04:027:019 And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the
congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.

04:027:020 And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all
the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.

04:027:021 And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask
counsel for him after the judgment of Urim before the LORD: at his word
shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he, and all
the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation.

04:027:022 And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took Joshua,
and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:

04:027:023 And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the
LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

04:028:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:028:002 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, My
offering, and my bread for my sacrifices made by fire, for a sweet
savour unto me, shall ye observe to offer unto me in their due season.

04:028:003 And thou shalt say unto them, This is the offering made by
fire which ye shall offer unto the LORD; two lambs of the first year
without spot day by day, for a continual burnt offering.

04:028:004 The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other
lamb shalt thou offer at even;

04:028:005 And a tenth part of an ephah of flour for a meat offering,
mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil.

04:028:006 It is a continual burnt offering, which was ordained in mount
Sinai for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD.

04:028:007 And the drink offering thereof shall be the fourth part of an
hin for the one lamb: in the holy place shalt thou cause the strong wine
to be poured unto the LORD for a drink offering.

04:028:008 And the other lamb shalt thou offer at even: as the meat
offering of the morning, and as the drink offering thereof, thou shalt
offer it, a sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

04:028:009 And on the sabbath day two lambs of the first year without
spot, and two tenth deals of flour for a meat offering, mingled with
oil, and the drink offering thereof:

04:028:010 This is the burnt offering of every sabbath, beside the
continual burnt offering, and his drink offering.

04:028:011 And in the beginnings of your months ye shall offer a burnt
offering unto the LORD; two young bullocks, and one ram, seven lambs of
the first year without spot;

04:028:012 And three tenth deals of flour for a meat offering, mingled
with oil, for one bullock; and two tenth deals of flour for a meat
offering, mingled with oil, for one ram;

04:028:013 And a several tenth deal of flour mingled with oil for a meat
offering unto one lamb; for a burnt offering of a sweet savour, a
sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD.

04:028:014 And their drink offerings shall be half an hin of wine unto a
bullock, and the third part of an hin unto a ram, and a fourth part of
an hin unto a lamb: this is the burnt offering of every month throughout
the months of the year.

04:028:015 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering unto the LORD
shall be offered, beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink
offering.

04:028:016 And in the fourteenth day of the first month is the passover
of the LORD.

04:028:017 And in the fifteenth day of this month is the feast: seven
days shall unleavened bread be eaten.

04:028:018 In the first day shall be an holy convocation; ye shall do no
manner of servile work therein:

04:028:019 But ye shall offer a sacrifice made by fire for a burnt
offering unto the LORD; two young bullocks, and one ram, and seven lambs
of the first year: they shall be unto you without blemish:

04:028:020 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil:
three tenth deals shall ye offer for a bullock, and two tenth deals for
a ram;

04:028:021 A several tenth deal shalt thou offer for every lamb,
throughout the seven lambs:

04:028:022 And one goat for a sin offering, to make an atonement for
you.

04:028:023 Ye shall offer these beside the burnt offering in the
morning, which is for a continual burnt offering.

04:028:024 After this manner ye shall offer daily, throughout the seven
days, the meat of the sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the
LORD: it shall be offered beside the continual burnt offering, and his
drink offering.

04:028:025 And on the seventh day ye shall have an holy convocation; ye
shall do no servile work.

04:028:026 Also in the day of the firstfruits, when ye bring a new meat
offering unto the LORD, after your weeks be out, ye shall have an holy
convocation; ye shall do no servile work:

04:028:027 But ye shall offer the burnt offering for a sweet savour unto
the LORD; two young bullocks, one ram, seven lambs of the first year;

04:028:028 And their meat offering of flour mingled with oil, three
tenth deals unto one bullock, two tenth deals unto one ram,

04:028:029 A several tenth deal unto one lamb, throughout the seven
lambs;

04:028:030 And one kid of the goats, to make an atonement for you.

04:028:031 Ye shall offer them beside the continual burnt offering, and
his meat offering, (they shall be unto you without blemish) and their
drink offerings.

04:029:001 And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye
shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day
of blowing the trumpets unto you.

04:029:002 And ye shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto
the LORD; one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year
without blemish:

04:029:003 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil,
three tenth deals for a bullock, and two tenth deals for a ram,

04:029:004 And one tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs:

04:029:005 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering, to make an
atonement for you:

04:029:006 Beside the burnt offering of the month, and his meat
offering, and the daily burnt offering, and his meat offering, and their
drink offerings, according unto their manner, for a sweet savour, a
sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD.

04:029:007 And ye shall have on the tenth day of this seventh month an
holy convocation; and ye shall afflict your souls: ye shall not do any
work therein:

04:029:008 But ye shall offer a burnt offering unto the LORD for a sweet
savour; one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year;
they shall be unto you without blemish:

04:029:009 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil,
three tenth deals to a bullock, and two tenth deals to one ram,

04:029:010 A several tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven
lambs:

04:029:011 One kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the sin
offering of atonement, and the continual burnt offering, and the meat
offering of it, and their drink offerings.

04:029:012 And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month ye shall have
an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work, and ye shall keep a
feast unto the LORD seven days:

04:029:013 And ye shall offer a burnt offering, a sacrifice made by
fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD; thirteen young bullocks, two
rams, and fourteen lambs of the first year; they shall be without
blemish:

04:029:014 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil,
three tenth deals unto every bullock of the thirteen bullocks, two tenth
deals to each ram of the two rams,

04:029:015 And a several tenth deal to each lamb of the fourteen lambs:

04:029:016 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the
continual burnt offering, his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:017 And on the second day ye shall offer twelve young bullocks,
two rams, fourteen lambs of the first year without spot:

04:029:018 And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according to their
number, after the manner:

04:029:019 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the
continual burnt offering, and the meat offering thereof, and their drink
offerings.

04:029:020 And on the third day eleven bullocks, two rams, fourteen
lambs of the first year without blemish;

04:029:021 And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according to their
number, after the manner:

04:029:022 And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt
offering, and his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:023 And on the fourth day ten bullocks, two rams, and fourteen
lambs of the first year without blemish:

04:029:024 Their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according to their
number, after the manner:

04:029:025 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the
continual burnt offering, his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:026 And on the fifth day nine bullocks, two rams, and fourteen
lambs of the first year without spot:

04:029:027 And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according to their
number, after the manner:

04:029:028 And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt
offering, and his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:029 And on the sixth day eight bullocks, two rams, and fourteen
lambs of the first year without blemish:

04:029:030 And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according to their
number, after the manner:

04:029:031 And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt
offering, his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:032 And on the seventh day seven bullocks, two rams, and fourteen
lambs of the first year without blemish:

04:029:033 And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according to their
number, after the manner:

04:029:034 And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt
offering, his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:035 On the eighth day ye shall have a solemn assembly: ye shall
do no servile work therein:

04:029:036 But ye shall offer a burnt offering, a sacrifice made by
fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD: one bullock, one ram, seven lambs
of the first year without blemish:

04:029:037 Their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullock, for the ram, and for the lambs, shall be according to their
number, after the manner:

04:029:038 And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt
offering, and his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:039 These things ye shall do unto the LORD in your set feasts,
beside your vows, and your freewill offerings, for your burnt offerings,
and for your meat offerings, and for your drink offerings, and for your
peace offerings.

04:029:040 And Moses told the children of Israel according to all that
the LORD commanded Moses.

04:030:001 And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes concerning the
children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD hath
commanded.

04:030:002 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind
his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according
to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.

04:030:003 If a woman also vow a vow unto the LORD, and bind herself by
a bond, being in her father's house in her youth;

04:030:004 And her father hear her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath
bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her; then all her
vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall
stand.

04:030:005 But if her father disallow her in the day that he heareth;
not any of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul,
shall stand: and the LORD shall forgive her, because her father
disallowed her.

04:030:006 And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered
ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul;

04:030:007 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her in the
day that he heard it: then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith
she bound her soul shall stand.

04:030:008 But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard
it; then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she
uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound her soul, of none effect: and
the LORD shall forgive her.

04:030:009 But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced,
wherewith they have bound their souls, shall stand against her.

04:030:010 And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by
a bond with an oath;

04:030:011 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her, and
disallowed her not: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond
wherewith she bound her soul shall stand.

04:030:012 But if her husband hath utterly made them void on the day he
heard them; then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips concerning her
vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, shall not stand: her husband
hath made them void; and the LORD shall forgive her.

04:030:013 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her
husband may establish it, or her husband may make it void.

04:030:014 But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day
to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which are
upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his peace at her in the
day that he heard them.

04:030:015 But if he shall any ways make them void after that he hath
heard them; then he shall bear her iniquity.

04:030:016 These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses,
between a man and his wife, between the father and his daughter, being
yet in her youth in her father's house.

04:031:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:031:002 Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward
shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.

04:031:003 And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm some of
yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites, and
avenge the LORD of Midian.

04:031:004 Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of
Israel, shall ye send to the war.

04:031:005 So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel, a
thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.

04:031:006 And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe,
them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the
holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his hand.

04:031:007 And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded
Moses; and they slew all the males.

04:031:008 And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them
that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba,
five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the
sword.

04:031:009 And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian
captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle,
and all their flocks, and all their goods.

04:031:010 And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all
their goodly castles, with fire.

04:031:011 And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of men
and of beasts.

04:031:012 And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil,
unto Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the
children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of Moab, which are by
Jordan near Jericho.

04:031:013 And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the
congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp.

04:031:014 And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the
captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the
battle.

04:031:015 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

04:031:016 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the
counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of
Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.

04:031:017 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill
every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

04:031:018 But all the women children, that have not known a man by
lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

04:031:019 And do ye abide without the camp seven days: whosoever hath
killed any person, and whosoever hath touched any slain, purify both
yourselves and your captives on the third day, and on the seventh day.

04:031:020 And purify all your raiment, and all that is made of skins,
and all work of goats' hair, and all things made of wood.

04:031:021 And Eleazar the priest said unto the men of war which went to
the battle, This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD commanded
Moses;

04:031:022 Only the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin,
and the lead,

04:031:023 Every thing that may abide the fire, ye shall make it go
through the fire, and it shall be clean: nevertheless it shall be
purified with the water of separation: and all that abideth not the fire
ye shall make go through the water.

04:031:024 And ye shall wash your clothes on the seventh day, and ye
shall be clean, and afterward ye shall come into the camp.

04:031:025 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:031:026 Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of
beast, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the chief fathers of the
congregation:

04:031:027 And divide the prey into two parts; between them that took
the war upon them, who went out to battle, and between all the
congregation:

04:031:028 And levy a tribute unto the LORD of the men of war which went
out to battle: one soul of five hundred, both of the persons, and of the
beeves, and of the asses, and of the sheep:

04:031:029 Take it of their half, and give it unto Eleazar the priest,
for an heave offering of the LORD.

04:031:030 And of the children of Israel's half, thou shalt take one
portion of fifty, of the persons, of the beeves, of the asses, and of
the flocks, of all manner of beasts, and give them unto the Levites,
which keep the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD.

04:031:031 And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded
Moses.

04:031:032 And the booty, being the rest of the prey which the men of
war had caught, was six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five
thousand sheep,

04:031:033 And threescore and twelve thousand beeves,

04:031:034 And threescore and one thousand asses,

04:031:035 And thirty and two thousand persons in all, of women that had
not known man by lying with him.

04:031:036 And the half, which was the portion of them that went out to
war, was in number three hundred thousand and seven and thirty thousand
and five hundred sheep:

04:031:037 And the LORD's tribute of the sheep was six hundred and
threescore and fifteen.

04:031:038 And the beeves were thirty and six thousand; of which the
LORD's tribute was threescore and twelve.

04:031:039 And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred; of which
the LORD's tribute was threescore and one.

04:031:040 And the persons were sixteen thousand; of which the LORD's
tribute was thirty and two persons.

04:031:041 And Moses gave the tribute, which was the LORD's heave
offering, unto Eleazar the priest, as the LORD commanded Moses.

04:031:042 And of the children of Israel's half, which Moses divided
from the men that warred,

04:031:043 (Now the half that pertained unto the congregation was three
hundred thousand and thirty thousand and seven thousand and five hundred
sheep,

04:031:044 And thirty and six thousand beeves,

04:031:045 And thirty thousand asses and five hundred,

04:031:046 And sixteen thousand persons;)

04:031:047 Even of the children of Israel's half, Moses took one portion
of fifty, both of man and of beast, and gave them unto the Levites,
which kept the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD; as the LORD
commanded Moses.

04:031:048 And the officers which were over thousands of the host, the
captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds, came near unto Moses:

04:031:049 And they said unto Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of
the men of war which are under our charge, and there lacketh not one man
of us.

04:031:050 We have therefore brought an oblation for the LORD, what
every man hath gotten, of jewels of gold, chains, and bracelets, rings,
earrings, and tablets, to make an atonement for our souls before the
LORD.

04:031:051 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, even
all wrought jewels.

04:031:052 And all the gold of the offering that they offered up to the
LORD, of the captains of thousands, and of the captains of hundreds, was
sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels.

04:031:053 (For the men of war had taken spoil, every man for himself.)

04:031:054 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of the
captains of thousands and of hundreds, and brought it into the
tabernacle of the congregation, for a memorial for the children of
Israel before the LORD.

04:032:001 Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a very
great multitude of cattle: and when they saw the land of Jazer, and the
land of Gilead, that, behold, the place was a place for cattle;

04:032:002 The children of Gad and the children of Reuben came and spake
unto Moses, and to Eleazar the priest, and unto the princes of the
congregation, saying,

04:032:003 Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and
Elealeh, and Shebam, and Nebo, and Beon,

04:032:004 Even the country which the LORD smote before the congregation
of Israel, is a land for cattle, and thy servants have cattle:

04:032:005 Wherefore, said they, if we have found grace in thy sight,
let this land be given unto thy servants for a possession, and bring us
not over Jordan.

04:032:006 And Moses said unto the children of Gad and to the children
of Reuben, Shall your brethren go to war, and shall ye sit here?

04:032:007 And wherefore discourage ye the heart of the children of
Israel from going over into the land which the LORD hath given them?

04:032:008 Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadeshbarnea to
see the land.

04:032:009 For when they went up unto the valley of Eshcol, and saw the
land, they discouraged the heart of the children of Israel, that they
should not go into the land which the LORD had given them.

04:032:010 And the LORD's anger was kindled the same time, and he sware,
saying,

04:032:011 Surely none of the men that came up out of Egypt, from twenty
years old and upward, shall see the land which I sware unto Abraham,
unto Isaac, and unto Jacob; because they have not wholly followed me:

04:032:012 Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the
son of Nun: for they have wholly followed the LORD.

04:032:013 And the LORD's anger was kindled against Israel, and he made
them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation,
that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was consumed.

04:032:014 And, behold, ye are risen up in your fathers' stead, an
increase of sinful men, to augment yet the fierce anger of the LORD
toward Israel.

04:032:015 For if ye turn away from after him, he will yet again leave
them in the wilderness; and ye shall destroy all this people.

04:032:016 And they came near unto him, and said, We will build
sheepfolds here for our cattle, and cities for our little ones:

04:032:017 But we ourselves will go ready armed before the children of
Israel, until we have brought them unto their place: and our little ones
shall dwell in the fenced cities because of the inhabitants of the land.

04:032:018 We will not return unto our houses, until the children of
Israel have inherited every man his inheritance.

04:032:019 For we will not inherit with them on yonder side Jordan, or
forward; because our inheritance is fallen to us on this side Jordan
eastward.

04:032:020 And Moses said unto them, If ye will do this thing, if ye
will go armed before the LORD to war,

04:032:021 And will go all of you armed over Jordan before the LORD,
until he hath driven out his enemies from before him,

04:032:022 And the land be subdued before the LORD: then afterward ye
shall return, and be guiltless before the LORD, and before Israel; and
this land shall be your possession before the LORD.

04:032:023 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the
LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.

04:032:024 Build you cities for your little ones, and folds for your
sheep; and do that which hath proceeded out of your mouth.

04:032:025 And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben spake unto
Moses, saying, Thy servants will do as my lord commandeth.

04:032:026 Our little ones, our wives, our flocks, and all our cattle,
shall be there in the cities of Gilead:

04:032:027 But thy servants will pass over, every man armed for war,
before the Lord to battle, as my lord saith.

04:032:028 So concerning them Moses commanded Eleazar the priest, and
Joshua the son of Nun, and the chief fathers of the tribes of the
children of Israel:

04:032:029 And Moses said unto them, If the children of Gad and the
children of Reuben will pass with you over Jordan, every man armed to
battle, before the LORD, and the land shall be subdued before you; then
ye shall give them the land of Gilead for a possession:

04:032:030 But if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall
have possessions among you in the land of Canaan.

04:032:031 And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben answered,
saying, As the LORD hath said unto thy servants, so will we do.

04:032:032 We will pass over armed before the LORD into the land of
Canaan, that the possession of our inheritance on this side Jordan may
be our's.

04:032:033 And Moses gave unto them, even to the children of Gad, and to
the children of Reuben, and unto half the tribe of Manasseh the son of
Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of Og
king of Bashan, the land, with the cities thereof in the coasts, even
the cities of the country round about.

04:032:034 And the children of Gad built Dibon, and Ataroth, and Aroer,

04:032:035 And Atroth, Shophan, and Jaazer, and Jogbehah,

04:032:036 And Bethnimrah, and Bethharan, fenced cities: and folds for
sheep.

04:032:037 And the children of Reuben built Heshbon, and Elealeh, and
Kirjathaim,

04:032:038 And Nebo, and Baalmeon, (their names being changed,) and
Shibmah: and gave other names unto the cities which they builded.

04:032:039 And the children of Machir the son of Manasseh went to
Gilead, and took it, and dispossessed the Amorite which was in it.

04:032:040 And Moses gave Gilead unto Machir the son of Manasseh; and he
dwelt therein.

04:032:041 And Jair the son of Manasseh went and took the small towns
thereof, and called them Havothjair.

04:032:042 And Nobah went and took Kenath, and the villages thereof, and
called it Nobah, after his own name.

04:033:001 These are the journeys of the children of Israel, which went
forth out of the land of Egypt with their armies under the hand of Moses
and Aaron.

04:033:002 And Moses wrote their goings out according to their journeys
by the commandment of the LORD: and these are their journeys according
to their goings out.

04:033:003 And they departed from Rameses in the first month, on the
fifteenth day of the first month; on the morrow after the passover the
children of Israel went out with an high hand in the sight of all the
Egyptians.

04:033:004 For the Egyptians buried all their firstborn, which the LORD
had smitten among them: upon their gods also the LORD executed
judgments.

04:033:005 And the children of Israel removed from Rameses, and pitched
in Succoth.

04:033:006 And they departed from Succoth, and pitched in Etham, which
is in the edge of the wilderness.

04:033:007 And they removed from Etham, and turned again unto
Pihahiroth, which is before Baalzephon: and they pitched before Migdol.

04:033:008 And they departed from before Pihahiroth, and passed through
the midst of the sea into the wilderness, and went three days' journey
in the wilderness of Etham, and pitched in Marah.

04:033:009 And they removed from Marah, and came unto Elim: and in Elim
were twelve fountains of water, and threescore and ten palm trees; and
they pitched there.

04:033:010 And they removed from Elim, and encamped by the Red sea.

04:033:011 And they removed from the Red sea, and encamped in the
wilderness of Sin.

04:033:012 And they took their journey out of the wilderness of Sin, and
encamped in Dophkah.

04:033:013 And they departed from Dophkah, and encamped in Alush.

04:033:014 And they removed from Alush, and encamped at Rephidim, where
was no water for the people to drink.

04:033:015 And they departed from Rephidim, and pitched in the
wilderness of Sinai.

04:033:016 And they removed from the desert of Sinai, and pitched at
Kibrothhattaavah.

04:033:017 And they departed from Kibrothhattaavah, and encamped at
Hazeroth.

04:033:018 And they departed from Hazeroth, and pitched in Rithmah.

04:033:019 And they departed from Rithmah, and pitched at Rimmonparez.

04:033:020 And they departed from Rimmonparez, and pitched in Libnah.

04:033:021 And they removed from Libnah, and pitched at Rissah.

04:033:022 And they journeyed from Rissah, and pitched in Kehelathah.

04:033:023 And they went from Kehelathah, and pitched in mount Shapher.

04:033:024 And they removed from mount Shapher, and encamped in Haradah.

04:033:025 And they removed from Haradah, and pitched in Makheloth.

04:033:026 And they removed from Makheloth, and encamped at Tahath.

04:033:027 And they departed from Tahath, and pitched at Tarah.

04:033:028 And they removed from Tarah, and pitched in Mithcah.

04:033:029 And they went from Mithcah, and pitched in Hashmonah.

04:033:030 And they departed from Hashmonah, and encamped at Moseroth.

04:033:031 And they departed from Moseroth, and pitched in Benejaakan.

04:033:032 And they removed from Benejaakan, and encamped at
Horhagidgad.

04:033:033 And they went from Horhagidgad, and pitched in Jotbathah.

04:033:034 And they removed from Jotbathah, and encamped at Ebronah.

04:033:035 And they departed from Ebronah, and encamped at Eziongaber.

04:033:036 And they removed from Eziongaber, and pitched in the
wilderness of Zin, which is Kadesh.

04:033:037 And they removed from Kadesh, and pitched in mount Hor, in
the edge of the land of Edom.

04:033:038 And Aaron the priest went up into mount Hor at the
commandment of the LORD, and died there, in the fortieth year after the
children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the first day
of the fifth month.

04:033:039 And Aaron was an hundred and twenty and three years old when
he died in mount Hor.

04:033:040 And king Arad the Canaanite, which dwelt in the south in the
land of Canaan, heard of the coming of the children of Israel.

04:033:041 And they departed from mount Hor, and pitched in Zalmonah.

04:033:042 And they departed from Zalmonah, and pitched in Punon.

04:033:043 And they departed from Punon, and pitched in Oboth.

04:033:044 And they departed from Oboth, and pitched in Ijeabarim, in
the border of Moab.

04:033:045 And they departed from Iim, and pitched in Dibongad.

04:033:046 And they removed from Dibongad, and encamped in
Almondiblathaim.

04:033:047 And they removed from Almondiblathaim, and pitched in the
mountains of Abarim, before Nebo.

04:033:048 And they departed from the mountains of Abarim, and pitched
in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.

04:033:049 And they pitched by Jordan, from Bethjesimoth even unto
Abelshittim in the plains of Moab.

04:033:050 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan
near Jericho, saying,

04:033:051 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye
are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan;

04:033:052 Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from
before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten
images, and quite pluck down all their high places:

04:033:053 And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and
dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it.

04:033:054 And ye shall divide the land by lot for an inheritance among
your families: and to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and
to the fewer ye shall give the less inheritance: every man's inheritance
shall be in the place where his lot falleth; according to the tribes of
your fathers ye shall inherit.

04:033:055 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from
before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain
of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and
shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.

04:033:056 Moreover it shall come to pass, that I shall do unto you, as
I thought to do unto them.

04:034:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:034:002 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye
come into the land of Canaan; (this is the land that shall fall unto you
for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:)

04:034:003 Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin
along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost
coast of the salt sea eastward:

04:034:004 And your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of
Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof shall be from
the south to Kadeshbarnea, and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to
Azmon:

04:034:005 And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the
river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea.

04:034:006 And as for the western border, ye shall even have the great
sea for a border: this shall be your west border.

04:034:007 And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye
shall point out for you mount Hor:

04:034:008 From mount Hor ye shall point out your border unto the
entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the border shall be to
Zedad:

04:034:009 And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of
it shall be at Hazarenan: this shall be your north border.

04:034:010 And ye shall point out your east border from Hazarenan to
Shepham:

04:034:011 And the coast shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the
east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the
side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward:

04:034:012 And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the goings out of
it shall be at the salt sea: this shall be your land with the coasts
thereof round about.

04:034:013 And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, This is
the land which ye shall inherit by lot, which the LORD commanded to give
unto the nine tribes, and to the half tribe:

04:034:014 For the tribe of the children of Reuben according to the
house of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad according
to the house of their fathers, have received their inheritance; and half
the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance:

04:034:015 The two tribes and the half tribe have received their
inheritance on this side Jordan near Jericho eastward, toward the
sunrising.

04:034:016 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:034:017 These are the names of the men which shall divide the land
unto you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.

04:034:018 And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to divide the
land by inheritance.

04:034:019 And the names of the men are these: Of the tribe of Judah,
Caleb the son of Jephunneh.

04:034:020 And of the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel the son
of Ammihud.

04:034:021 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon.

04:034:022 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Dan, Bukki the
son of Jogli.

04:034:023 The prince of the children of Joseph, for the tribe of the
children of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod.

04:034:024 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Ephraim,
Kemuel the son of Shiphtan.

04:034:025 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Zebulun,
Elizaphan the son of Parnach.

04:034:026 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Issachar,
Paltiel the son of Azzan.

04:034:027 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Asher, Ahihud
the son of Shelomi.

04:034:028 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Naphtali,
Pedahel the son of Ammihud.

04:034:029 These are they whom the LORD commanded to divide the
inheritance unto the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.

04:035:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan
near Jericho, saying,

04:035:002 Command the children of Israel, that they give unto the
Levites of the inheritance of their possession cities to dwell in; and
ye shall give also unto the Levites suburbs for the cities round about
them.

04:035:003 And the cities shall they have to dwell in; and the suburbs
of them shall be for their cattle, and for their goods, and for all
their beasts.

04:035:004 And the suburbs of the cities, which ye shall give unto the
Levites, shall reach from the wall of the city and outward a thousand
cubits round about.

04:035:005 And ye shall measure from without the city on the east side
two thousand cubits, and on the south side two thousand cubits, and on
the west side two thousand cubits, and on the north side two thousand
cubits; and the city shall be in the midst: this shall be to them the
suburbs of the cities.

04:035:006 And among the cities which ye shall give unto the Levites
there shall be six cities for refuge, which ye shall appoint for the
manslayer, that he may flee thither: and to them ye shall add forty and
two cities.

04:035:007 So all the cities which ye shall give to the Levites shall be
forty and eight cities: them shall ye give with their suburbs.

04:035:008 And the cities which ye shall give shall be of the possession
of the children of Israel: from them that have many ye shall give many;
but from them that have few ye shall give few: every one shall give of
his cities unto the Levites according to his inheritance which he
inheriteth.

04:035:009 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:035:010 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye
be come over Jordan into the land of Canaan;

04:035:011 Then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for
you; that the slayer may flee thither, which killeth any person at
unawares.

04:035:012 And they shall be unto you cities for refuge from the
avenger; that the manslayer die not, until he stand before the
congregation in judgment.

04:035:013 And of these cities which ye shall give six cities shall ye
have for refuge.

04:035:014 Ye shall give three cities on this side Jordan, and three
cities shall ye give in the land of Canaan, which shall be cities of
refuge.

04:035:015 These six cities shall be a refuge, both for the children of
Israel, and for the stranger, and for the sojourner among them: that
every one that killeth any person unawares may flee thither.

04:035:016 And if he smite him with an instrument of iron, so that he
die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.

04:035:017 And if he smite him with throwing a stone, wherewith he may
die, and he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to
death.

04:035:018 Or if he smite him with an hand weapon of wood, wherewith he
may die, and he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put
to death.

04:035:019 The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when
he meeteth him, he shall slay him.

04:035:020 But if he thrust him of hatred, or hurl at him by laying of
wait, that he die;

04:035:021 Or in enmity smite him with his hand, that he die: he that
smote him shall surely be put to death; for he is a murderer: the
revenger of blood shall slay the murderer, when he meeteth him.

04:035:022 But if he thrust him suddenly without enmity, or have cast
upon him any thing without laying of wait,

04:035:023 Or with any stone, wherewith a man may die, seeing him not,
and cast it upon him, that he die, and was not his enemy, neither sought
his harm:

04:035:024 Then the congregation shall judge between the slayer and the
revenger of blood according to these judgments:

04:035:025 And the congregation shall deliver the slayer out of the hand
of the revenger of blood, and the congregation shall restore him to the
city of his refuge, whither he was fled: and he shall abide in it unto
the death of the high priest, which was anointed with the holy oil.

04:035:026 But if the slayer shall at any time come without the border
of the city of his refuge, whither he was fled;

04:035:027 And the revenger of blood find him without the borders of the
city of his refuge, and the revenger of blood kill the slayer; he shall
not be guilty of blood:

04:035:028 Because he should have remained in the city of his refuge
until the death of the high priest: but after the death of the high
priest the slayer shall return into the land of his possession.

04:035:029 So these things shall be for a statute of judgment unto you
throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

04:035:030 Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death
by the mouth of witnesses: but one witness shall not testify against any
person to cause him to die.

04:035:031 Moreover ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a
murderer, which is guilty of death: but he shall be surely put to death.

04:035:032 And ye shall take no satisfaction for him that is fled to the
city of his refuge, that he should come again to dwell in the land,
until the death of the priest.

04:035:033 So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it
defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is
shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.

04:035:034 Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein
I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel.

04:036:001 And the chief fathers of the families of the children of
Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of the
sons of Joseph, came near, and spake before Moses, and before the
princes, the chief fathers of the children of Israel:

04:036:002 And they said, The LORD commanded my lord to give the land
for an inheritance by lot to the children of Israel: and my lord was
commanded by the LORD to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother
unto his daughters.

04:036:003 And if they be married to any of the sons of the other tribes
of the children of Israel, then shall their inheritance be taken from
the inheritance of our fathers, and shall be put to the inheritance of
the tribe whereunto they are received: so shall it be taken from the lot
of our inheritance.

04:036:004 And when the jubile of the children of Israel shall be, then
shall their inheritance be put unto the inheritance of the tribe
whereunto they are received: so shall their inheritance be taken away
from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers.

04:036:005 And Moses commanded the children of Israel according to the
word of the LORD, saying, The tribe of the sons of Joseph hath said
well.

04:036:006 This is the thing which the LORD doth command concerning the
daughters of Zelophehad, saying, Let them marry to whom they think best;
only to the family of the tribe of their father shall they marry.

04:036:007 So shall not the inheritance of the children of Israel remove
from tribe to tribe: for every one of the children of Israel shall keep
himself to the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers.

04:036:008 And every daughter, that possesseth an inheritance in any
tribe of the children of Israel, shall be wife unto one of the family of
the tribe of her father, that the children of Israel may enjoy every man
the inheritance of his fathers.

04:036:009 Neither shall the inheritance remove from one tribe to
another tribe; but every one of the tribes of the children of Israel
shall keep himself to his own inheritance.

04:036:010 Even as the LORD commanded Moses, so did the daughters of
Zelophehad:

04:036:011 For Mahlah, Tirzah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Noah, the
daughters of Zelophehad, were married unto their father's brothers'
sons:

04:036:012 And they were married into the families of the sons of
Manasseh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained in the tribe
of the family of their father.

04:036:013 These are the commandments and the judgments, which the LORD
commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of Israel in the plains
of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.



BOOK 05 Deuteronomy


0$:001:001 These be the words which Moses spake unto
all Israel on this side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over
against the Red sea, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth,
and Dizahab.

05:001:002 (There are eleven days' journey from Horeb by the way of
mount Seir unto Kadeshbarnea.)

05:001:003 And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh
month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children
of Israel, according unto all that the LORD had given him in commandment
unto them;

05:001:004 After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which
dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in
Edrei:

05:001:005 On this side Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to
declare this law, saying,

05:001:006 The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have
dwelt long enough in this mount:

05:001:007 Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the
Amorites, and unto all the places nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the
hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to the
land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great river, the
river Euphrates.

05:001:008 Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the
land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
to give unto them and to their seed after them.

05:001:009 And I spake unto you at that time, saying, I am not able to
bear you myself alone:

05:001:010 The LORD your God hath multiplied you, and, behold, ye are
this day as the stars of heaven for multitude.

05:001:011 (The LORD God of your fathers make you a thousand times so
many more as ye are, and bless you, as he hath promised you!)

05:001:012 How can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden,
and your strife?

05:001:013 Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your
tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.

05:001:014 And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast
spoken is good for us to do.

05:001:015 So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and
made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over
hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and
officers among your tribes.

05:001:016 And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the
causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man
and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.

05:001:017 Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear
the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of
man; for the judgment is God's: and the cause that is too hard for you,
bring it unto me, and I will hear it.

05:001:018 And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye
should do.

05:001:019 And when we departed from Horeb, we went through all that
great and terrible wilderness, which ye saw by the way of the mountain
of the Amorites, as the LORD our God commanded us; and we came to
Kadeshbarnea.

05:001:020 And I said unto you, Ye are come unto the mountain of the
Amorites, which the LORD our God doth give unto us.

05:001:021 Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up
and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear
not, neither be discouraged.

05:001:022 And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will
send men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and bring us
word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall
come.

05:001:023 And the saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you,
one of a tribe:

05:001:024 And they turned and went up into the mountain, and came unto
the valley of Eshcol, and searched it out.

05:001:025 And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands, and
brought it down unto us, and brought us word again, and said, It is a
good land which the LORD our God doth give us.

05:001:026 Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the
commandment of the LORD your God:

05:001:027 And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the LORD
hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver
us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.

05:001:028 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our
heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are
great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the
Anakims there.

05:001:029 Then I said unto you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them.

05:001:030 The LORD your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for
you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;

05:001:031 And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD
thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye
went, until ye came into this place.

05:001:032 Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God,

05:001:033 Who went in the way before you, to search you out a place to
pitch your tents in, in fire by night, to shew you by what way ye should
go, and in a cloud by day.

05:001:034 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, and was wroth,
and sware, saying,

05:001:035 Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil
generation see that good land, which I sware to give unto your fathers.

05:001:036 Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him
will I give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children,
because he hath wholly followed the LORD.

05:001:037 Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou
also shalt not go in thither.

05:001:038 But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he
shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit
it.

05:001:039 Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey,
and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and
evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they
shall possess it.

05:001:040 But as for you, turn you, and take your journey into the
wilderness by the way of the Red sea.

05:001:041 Then ye answered and said unto me, We have sinned against the
LORD, we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God
commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war, ye
were ready to go up into the hill.

05:001:042 And the LORD said unto me, Say unto them. Go not up, neither
fight; for I am not among you; lest ye be smitten before your enemies.

05:001:043 So I spake unto you; and ye would not hear, but rebelled
against the commandment of the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the
hill.

05:001:044 And the Amorites, which dwelt in that mountain, came out
against you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in Seir, even
unto Hormah.

05:001:045 And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would
not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you.

05:001:046 So ye abode in Kadesh many days, according unto the days that
ye abode there.

05:002:001 Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by
the way of the Red sea, as the LORD spake unto me: and we compassed
mount Seir many days.

05:002:002 And the LORD spake unto me, saying,

05:002:003 Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you
northward.

05:002:004 And command thou the people, saying, Ye are to pass through
the coast of your brethren the children of Esau, which dwell in Seir;
and they shall be afraid of you: take ye good heed unto yourselves
therefore:

05:002:005 Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land,
no, not so much as a foot breadth; because I have given mount Seir unto
Esau for a possession.

05:002:006 Ye shall buy meat of them for money, that ye may eat; and ye
shall also buy water of them for money, that ye may drink.

05:002:007 For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of
thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these
forty years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked
nothing.

05:002:008 And when we passed by from our brethren the children of Esau,
which dwelt in Seir, through the way of the plain from Elath, and from
Eziongaber, we turned and passed by the way of the wilderness of Moab.

05:002:009 And the LORD said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither
contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their land for
a possession; because I have given Ar unto the children of Lot for a
possession.

05:002:010 The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and
many, and tall, as the Anakims;

05:002:011 Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the
Moabites called them Emims.

05:002:012 The Horims also dwelt in Seir beforetime; but the children of
Esau succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before them, and
dwelt in their stead; as Israel did unto the land of his possession,
which the LORD gave unto them.

05:002:013 Now rise up, said I, and get you over the brook Zered. And we
went over the brook Zered.

05:002:014 And the space in which we came from Kadeshbarnea, until we
were come over the brook Zered, was thirty and eight years; until all
the generation of the men of war were wasted out from among the host, as
the LORD sware unto them.

05:002:015 For indeed the hand of the LORD was against them, to destroy
them from among the host, until they were consumed.

05:002:016 So it came to pass, when all the men of war were consumed and
dead from among the people,

05:002:017 That the LORD spake unto me, saying,

05:002:018 Thou art to pass over through Ar, the coast of Moab, this
day:

05:002:019 And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon,
distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the
land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it
unto the children of Lot for a possession.

05:002:020 (That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt
therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;

05:002:021 A people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; but the
LORD destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in
their stead:

05:002:022 As he did to the children of Esau, which dwelt in Seir, when
he destroyed the Horims from before them; and they succeeded them, and
dwelt in their stead even unto this day:

05:002:023 And the Avims which dwelt in Hazerim, even unto Azzah, the
Caphtorims, which came forth out of Caphtor, destroyed them, and dwelt
in their stead.)

05:002:024 Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon:
behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon,
and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle.

05:002:025 This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear
of thee upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear
report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee.

05:002:026 And I sent messengers out of the wilderness of Kedemoth unto
Sihon king of Heshbon with words of peace, saying,

05:002:027 Let me pass through thy land: I will go along by the high
way, I will neither turn unto the right hand nor to the left.

05:002:028 Thou shalt sell me meat for money, that I may eat; and give
me water for money, that I may drink: only I will pass through on my
feet;

05:002:029 (As the children of Esau which dwell in Seir, and the
Moabites which dwell in Ar, did unto me;) until I shall pass over Jordan
into the land which the LORD our God giveth us.

05:002:030 But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for
the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that
he might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day.

05:002:031 And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have begun to give Sihon
and his land before thee: begin to possess, that thou mayest inherit his
land.

05:002:032 Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to
fight at Jahaz.

05:002:033 And the LORD our God delivered him before us; and we smote
him, and his sons, and all his people.

05:002:034 And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly
destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we
left none to remain:

05:002:035 Only the cattle we took for a prey unto ourselves, and the
spoil of the cities which we took.

05:002:036 From Aroer, which is by the brink of the river of Arnon, and
from the city that is by the river, even unto Gilead, there was not one
city too strong for us: the LORD our God delivered all unto us:

05:002:037 Only unto the land of the children of Ammon thou camest not,
nor unto any place of the river Jabbok, nor unto the cities in the
mountains, nor unto whatsoever the LORD our God forbad us.

05:003:001 Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the
king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at
Edrei.

05:003:002 And the LORD said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver
him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do
unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at
Heshbon.

05:003:003 So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the
king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left
to him remaining.

05:003:004 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city
which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob,
the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

05:003:005 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and
bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.

05:003:006 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of
Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.

05:003:007 But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for
a prey to ourselves.

05:003:008 And we took at that time out of the hand of the two kings of
the Amorites the land that was on this side Jordan, from the river of
Arnon unto mount Hermon;

05:003:009 (Which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites
call it Shenir;)

05:003:010 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan,
unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

05:003:011 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants;
behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the
children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits
the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.

05:003:012 And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer,
which is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities
thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.

05:003:013 And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of
Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob,
with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.

05:003:014 Jair the son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto
the coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them after his own name,
Bashanhavothjair, unto this day.

05:003:015 And I gave Gilead unto Machir.

05:003:016 And unto the Reubenites and unto the Gadites I gave from
Gilead even unto the river Arnon half the valley, and the border even
unto the river Jabbok, which is the border of the children of Ammon;

05:003:017 The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast thereof, from
Chinnereth even unto the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, under
Ashdothpisgah eastward.

05:003:018 And I commanded you at that time, saying, The LORD your God
hath given you this land to possess it: ye shall pass over armed before
your brethren the children of Israel, all that are meet for the war.

05:003:019 But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, (for I
know that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I have
given you;

05:003:020 Until the LORD have given rest unto your brethren, as well as
unto you, and until they also possess the land which the LORD your God
hath given them beyond Jordan: and then shall ye return every man unto
his possession, which I have given you.

05:003:021 And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have
seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall
the LORD do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest.

05:003:022 Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight
for you.

05:003:023 And I besought the LORD at that time, saying,

05:003:024 O Lord GOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy
greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in
earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?

05:003:025 I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is
beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon.

05:003:026 But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not
hear me: and the LORD said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more
unto me of this matter.

05:003:027 Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes
westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with
thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan.

05:003:028 But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for
he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit
the land which thou shalt see.

05:003:029 So we abode in the valley over against Bethpeor.

05:004:001 Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto
the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and
go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth
you.

05:004:002 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither
shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of
the LORD your God which I command you.

05:004:003 Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baalpeor:
for all the men that followed Baalpeor, the LORD thy God hath destroyed
them from among you.

05:004:004 But ye that did cleave unto the LORD your God are alive every
one of you this day.

05:004:005 Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the
LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go
to possess it.

05:004:006 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your
understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these
statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding
people.

05:004:007 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto
them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

05:004:008 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and
judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

05:004:009 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest
thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart
from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and
thy sons' sons;

05:004:010 Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God
in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and
I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the
days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their
children.

05:004:011 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the
mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness,
clouds, and thick darkness.

05:004:012 And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye
heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a
voice.

05:004:013 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you
to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of
stone.

05:004:014 And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes
and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to
possess it.

05:004:015 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no
manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb
out of the midst of the fire:

05:004:016 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the
similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

05:004:017 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness
of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,

05:004:018 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the
likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:

05:004:019 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou
seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven,
shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy
God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.

05:004:020 But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the
iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance,
as ye are this day.

05:004:021 Furthermore the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, and
sware that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not go in unto
that good land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance:

05:004:022 But I must die in this land, I must not go over Jordan: but
ye shall go over, and possess that good land.

05:004:023 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the
LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or
the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee.

05:004:024 For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

05:004:025 When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and
ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves,
and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil
in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke him to anger:

05:004:026 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that
ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over
Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall
utterly be destroyed.

05:004:027 And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye
shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall
lead you.

05:004:028 And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood
and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.

05:004:029 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou
shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy
soul.

05:004:030 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come
upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God,
and shalt be obedient unto his voice;

05:004:031 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake
thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which
he sware unto them.

05:004:032 For ask now of the days that are past, which were before
thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from
the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such
thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it?

05:004:033 Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the
midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?

05:004:034 Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the
midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and
by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great
terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt
before your eyes?

05:004:035 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the
LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.

05:004:036 Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might
instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou
heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.

05:004:037 And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their
seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power
out of Egypt;

05:004:038 To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier
than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an
inheritance, as it is this day.

05:004:039 Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that
the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is
none else.

05:004:040 Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments,
which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with
thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the
earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.

05:004:041 Then Moses severed three cities on this side Jordan toward
the sunrising;

05:004:042 That the slayer might flee thither, which should kill his
neighbour unawares, and hated him not in times past; and that fleeing
unto one of these cities he might live:

05:004:043 Namely, Bezer in the wilderness, in the plain country, of the
Reubenites; and Ramoth in Gilead, of the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan,
of the Manassites.

05:004:044 And this is the law which Moses set before the children of
Israel:

05:004:045 These are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the
judgments, which Moses spake unto the children of Israel, after they
came forth out of Egypt.

05:004:046 On this side Jordan, in the valley over against Bethpeor, in
the land of Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon, whom Moses
and the children of Israel smote, after they were come forth out of
Egypt:

05:004:047 And they possessed his land, and the land of Og king of
Bashan, two kings of the Amorites, which were on this side Jordan toward
the sunrising;

05:004:048 From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, even
unto mount Sion, which is Hermon,

05:004:049 And all the plain on this side Jordan eastward, even unto the
sea of the plain, under the springs of Pisgah.

05:005:001 And Moses called all Israel, and said unto them, Hear, O
Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day,
that ye may learn them, and keep, and do them.

05:005:002 The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.

05:005:003 The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with
us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day.

05:005:004 The LORD talked with you face to face in the mount out of the
midst of the fire,

05:005:005 (I stood between the LORD and you at that time, to shew you
the word of the LORD: for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went
not up into the mount;) saying,

05:005:006 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of
Egypt, from the house of bondage.

05:005:007 Thou shalt have none other gods before me.

05:005:008 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of
any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or
that is in the waters beneath the earth:

05:005:009 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them:
for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them
that hate me,

05:005:010 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and
keep my commandments.

05:005:011 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for
the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

05:005:012 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath
commanded thee.

05:005:013 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:

05:005:014 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it
thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy
manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of
thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy
manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.

05:005:015 And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt,
and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand
and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to
keep the sabbath day.

05:005:016 Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath
commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well
with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

05:005:017 Thou shalt not kill.

05:005:018 Neither shalt thou commit adultery.

05:005:019 Neither shalt thou steal.

05:005:020 Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour.

05:005:021 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt
thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his
maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's.

05:005:022 These words the LORD spake unto all your assembly in the
mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick
darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in
two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.

05:005:023 And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice out of the midst
of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came
near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders;

05:005:024 And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his
glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of
the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he
liveth.

05:005:025 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will
consume us: if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any more, then we
shall die.

05:005:026 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of
the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and
lived?

05:005:027 Go thou near, and hear all that the LORD our God shall say:
and speak thou unto us all that the LORD our God shall speak unto thee;
and we will hear it, and do it.

05:005:028 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spake
unto me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words
of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said
all that they have spoken.

05:005:029 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear
me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with
them, and with their children for ever!

05:005:030 Go say to them, Get you into your tents again.

05:005:031 But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto
thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which
thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give
them to possess it.

05:005:032 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath
commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

05:005:033 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath
commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and
that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.

05:006:001 Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the
judgments, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that ye might
do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:

05:006:002 That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his
statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son,
and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be
prolonged.

05:006:003 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may
be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of
thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and
honey.

05:006:004 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

05:006:005 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

05:006:006 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in
thine heart:

05:006:007 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and
shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou
walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

05:006:008 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they
shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

05:006:009 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on
thy gates.

05:006:010 And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought
thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to
Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou
buildedst not,

05:006:011 And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not,
and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees,
which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;

05:006:012 Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee
forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

05:006:013 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt
swear by his name.

05:006:014 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people
which are round about you;

05:006:015 (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the
anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from
off the face of the earth.

05:006:016 Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in
Massah.

05:006:017 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your
God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded
thee.

05:006:018 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight
of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in
and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers.

05:006:019 To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the LORD
hath spoken.

05:006:020 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What
mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the
LORD our God hath commanded you?

05:006:021 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen
in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:

05:006:022 And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon
Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:

05:006:023 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in,
to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.

05:006:024 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear
the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive,
as it is at this day.

05:006:025 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all
these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.

05:007:001 When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither
thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee,
the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites,
and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations
greater and mightier than thou;

05:007:002 And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee;
thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no
covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:

05:007:003 Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter
thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto
thy son.

05:007:004 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they
may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against
you, and destroy thee suddenly.

05:007:005 But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their
altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn
their graven images with fire.

05:007:006 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD
thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all
people that are upon the face of the earth.

05:007:007 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you,
because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest
of all people:

05:007:008 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the
oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out
with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from
the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

05:007:009 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful
God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep
his commandments to a thousand generations;

05:007:010 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy
them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to
his face.

05:007:011 Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes,
and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.

05:007:012 Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these
judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto
thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:

05:007:013 And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he
will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy
corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the
flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give
thee.

05:007:014 Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be
male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.

05:007:015 And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will
put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee;
but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.

05:007:016 And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy God
shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither
shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee.

05:007:017 If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than
I; how can I dispossess them?

05:007:018 Thou shalt not be afraid of them: but shalt well remember
what the LORD thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;

05:007:019 The great temptations which thine eyes saw, and the signs,
and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the stretched out arm, whereby
the LORD thy God brought thee out: so shall the LORD thy God do unto all
the people of whom thou art afraid.

05:007:020 Moreover the LORD thy God will send the hornet among them,
until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed.

05:007:021 Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy God is
among you, a mighty God and terrible.

05:007:022 And the LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee
by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the
beasts of the field increase upon thee.

05:007:023 But the LORD thy God shall deliver them unto thee, and shall
destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they be destroyed.

05:007:024 And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou
shalt destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man be able
to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them.

05:007:025 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou
shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto
thee, lest thou be snared therin: for it is an abomination to the LORD
thy God.

05:007:026 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house,
lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it,
and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.

05:008:001 All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye
observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the
land which the LORD sware unto your fathers.

05:008:002 And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God
led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to
prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep
his commandments, or no.

05:008:003 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed
thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know;
that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but
by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man
live.

05:008:004 Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot
swell, these forty years.

05:008:005 Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man
chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee.

05:008:006 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy
God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.

05:008:007 For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land
of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys
and hills;

05:008:008 A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and
pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey;

05:008:009 A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou
shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of
whose hills thou mayest dig brass.

05:008:010 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the
LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.

05:008:011 Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping
his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command
thee this day:

05:008:012 Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly
houses, and dwelt therein;

05:008:013 And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver
and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;

05:008:014 Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy
God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house
of bondage;

05:008:015 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness,
wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was
no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;

05:008:016 Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers
knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do
thee good at thy latter end;

05:008:017 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine
hand hath gotten me this wealth.

05:008:018 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that
giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant
which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

05:008:019 And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God,
and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify
against you this day that ye shall surely perish.

05:008:020 As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so
shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the
LORD your God.

05:009:001 Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go
in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great
and fenced up to heaven,

05:009:002 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom
thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the
children of Anak!

05:009:003 Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he
which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them,
and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them
out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.

05:009:004 Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the LORD thy God
hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the
LORD hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of
these nations the LORD doth drive them out from before thee.

05:009:005 Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine
heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of
these nations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and
that he may perform the word which the LORD sware unto thy fathers,
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

05:009:006 Understand therefore, that the LORD thy God giveth thee not
this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art a
stiffnecked people.

05:009:007 Remember, and forget not, how thou provokedst the LORD thy
God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out
of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been
rebellious against the LORD.

05:009:008 Also in Horeb ye provoked the LORD to wrath, so that the LORD
was angry with you to have destroyed you.

05:009:009 When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of
stone, even the tables of the covenant which the LORD made with you,
then I abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I neither did eat
bread nor drink water:

05:009:010 And the LORD delivered unto me two tables of stone written
with the finger of God; and on them was written according to all the
words, which the LORD spake with you in the mount out of the midst of
the fire in the day of the assembly.

05:009:011 And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty
nights, that the LORD gave me the two tables of stone, even the tables
of the covenant.

05:009:012 And the LORD said unto me, Arise, get thee down quickly from
hence; for thy people which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt have
corrupted themselves; they are quickly turned aside out of the way which
I commanded them; they have made them a molten image.

05:009:013 Furthermore the LORD spake unto me, saying, I have seen this
people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

05:009:014 Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and blot out their
name from under heaven: and I will make of thee a nation mightier and
greater than they.

05:009:015 So I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount
burned with fire: and the two tables of the covenant were in my two
hands.

05:009:016 And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned against the LORD
your God, and had made you a molten calf: ye had turned aside quickly
out of the way which the LORD had commanded you.

05:009:017 And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands,
and brake them before your eyes.

05:009:018 And I fell down before the LORD, as at the first, forty days
and forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of
all your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the
LORD, to provoke him to anger.

05:009:019 For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith
the LORD was wroth against you to destroy you. But the LORD hearkened
unto me at that time also.

05:009:020 And the LORD was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him:
and I prayed for Aaron also the same time.

05:009:021 And I took your sin, the calf which ye had made, and burnt it
with fire, and stamped it, and ground it very small, even until it was
as small as dust: and I cast the dust thereof into the brook that
descended out of the mount.

05:009:022 And at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibrothhattaavah, ye
provoked the LORD to wrath.

05:009:023 Likewise when the LORD sent you from Kadeshbarnea, saying, Go
up and possess the land which I have given you; then ye rebelled against
the commandment of the LORD your God, and ye believed him not, nor
hearkened to his voice.

05:009:024 Ye have been rebellious against the LORD from the day that I
knew you.

05:009:025 Thus I fell down before the LORD forty days and forty nights,
as I fell down at the first; because the LORD had said he would destroy
you.

05:009:026 I prayed therefore unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD,
destroy not thy people and thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed
through thy greatness, which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt with a
mighty hand.

05:009:027 Remember thy servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not
unto the stubbornness of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to
their sin:

05:009:028 Lest the land whence thou broughtest us out say, Because the
LORD was not able to bring them into the land which he promised them,
and because he hated them, he hath brought them out to slay them in the
wilderness.

05:009:029 Yet they are thy people and thine inheritance, which thou
broughtest out by thy mighty power and by thy stretched out arm.

05:010:001 At that time the LORD said unto me, Hew thee two tables of
stone like unto the first, and come up unto me into the mount, and make
thee an ark of wood.

05:010:002 And I will write on the tables the words that were in the
first tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in the ark.

05:010:003 And I made an ark of shittim wood, and hewed two tables of
stone like unto the first, and went up into the mount, having the two
tables in mine hand.

05:010:004 And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing,
the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of
the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them
unto me.

05:010:005 And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the
tables in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the LORD
commanded me.

05:010:006 And the children of Israel took their journey from Beeroth of
the children of Jaakan to Mosera: there Aaron died, and there he was
buried; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest's office in his
stead.

05:010:007 From thence they journeyed unto Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah
to Jotbath, a land of rivers of waters.

05:010:008 At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi, to bear
the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to
minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day.

05:010:009 Wherefore Levi hath no part nor inheritance with his
brethren; the LORD is his inheritance, according as the LORD thy God
promised him.

05:010:010 And I stayed in the mount, according to the first time, forty
days and forty nights; and the LORD hearkened unto me at that time also,
and the LORD would not destroy thee.

05:010:011 And the LORD said unto me, Arise, take thy journey before the
people, that they may go in and possess the land, which I sware unto
their fathers to give unto them.

05:010:012 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee,
but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him,
and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,

05:010:013 To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which
I command thee this day for thy good?

05:010:014 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD's
thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.

05:010:015 Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and
he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this
day.

05:010:016 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no
more stiffnecked.

05:010:017 For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a
great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor
taketh reward:

05:010:018 He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and
loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.

05:010:019 Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the
land of Egypt.

05:010:020 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and
to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.

05:010:021 He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee
these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.

05:010:022 Thy fathers went down into Egypt with threescore and ten
persons; and now the LORD thy God hath made thee as the stars of heaven
for multitude.

05:011:001 Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his
charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments,
alway.

05:011:002 And know ye this day: for I speak not with your children
which have not known, and which have not seen the chastisement of the
LORD your God, his greatness, his mighty hand, and his stretched out
arm,

05:011:003 And his miracles, and his acts, which he did in the midst of
Egypt unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and unto all his land;

05:011:004 And what he did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses,
and to their chariots; how he made the water of the Red sea to overflow
them as they pursued after you, and how the LORD hath destroyed them
unto this day;

05:011:005 And what he did unto you in the wilderness, until ye came
into this place;

05:011:006 And what he did unto Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab,
the son of Reuben: how the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them
up, and their households, and their tents, and all the substance that
was in their possession, in the midst of all Israel:

05:011:007 But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the LORD which
he did.

05:011:008 Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command
you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land,
whither ye go to possess it;

05:011:009 And that ye may prolong your days in the land, which the LORD
sware unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed, a land that
floweth with milk and honey.

05:011:010 For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as
the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed,
and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:

05:011:011 But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills
and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:

05:011:012 A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the
LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even
unto the end of the year.

05:011:013 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently
unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your
God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,

05:011:014 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season,
the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn,
and thy wine, and thine oil.

05:011:015 And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou
mayest eat and be full.

05:011:016 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and
ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;

05:011:017 And then the LORD's wrath be kindled against you, and he shut
up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her
fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD
giveth you.

05:011:018 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in
your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as
frontlets between your eyes.

05:011:019 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when
thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou
liest down, and when thou risest up.

05:011:020 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house,
and upon thy gates:

05:011:021 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your
children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give
them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

05:011:022 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which
I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his
ways, and to cleave unto him;

05:011:023 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before
you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.

05:011:024 Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall
be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river
Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.

05:011:025 There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the LORD
your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the
land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you.

05:011:026 Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;

05:011:027 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God,
which I command you this day:

05:011:028 And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD
your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to
go after other gods, which ye have not known.

05:011:029 And it shall come to pass, when the LORD thy God hath brought
thee in unto the land whither thou goest to possess it, that thou shalt
put the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal.

05:011:030 Are they not on the other side Jordan, by the way where the
sun goeth down, in the land of the Canaanites, which dwell in the
champaign over against Gilgal, beside the plains of Moreh?

05:011:031 For ye shall pass over Jordan to go in to possess the land
which the LORD your God giveth you, and ye shall possess it, and dwell
therein.

05:011:032 And ye shall observe to do all the statutes and judgments
which I set before you this day.

05:012:001 These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe
to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth thee to
possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth.

05:012:002 Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations
which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and
upon the hills, and under every green tree:

05:012:003 And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars,
and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images
of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.

05:012:004 Ye shall not do so unto the LORD your God.

05:012:005 But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out
of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall
ye seek, and thither thou shalt come:

05:012:006 And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your
sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your
vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and
of your flocks:

05:012:007 And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall
rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households,
wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.

05:012:008 Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this
day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.

05:012:009 For ye are not as yet come to the rest and to the
inheritance, which the LORD your God giveth you.

05:012:010 But when ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the
LORD your God giveth you to inherit, and when he giveth you rest from
all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety;

05:012:011 Then there shall be a place which the LORD your God shall
choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that
I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes,
and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye
vow unto the LORD:

05:012:012 And ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God, ye, and your
sons, and your daughters, and your menservants, and your maidservants,
and the Levite that is within your gates; forasmuch as he hath no part
nor inheritance with you.

05:012:013 Take heed to thyself that thou offer not thy burnt offerings
in every place that thou seest:

05:012:014 But in the place which the LORD shall choose in one of thy
tribes, there thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, and there thou shalt
do all that I command thee.

05:012:015 Notwithstanding thou mayest kill and eat flesh in all thy
gates, whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, according to the blessing of
the LORD thy God which he hath given thee: the unclean and the clean may
eat thereof, as of the roebuck, and as of the hart.

05:012:016 Only ye shall not eat the blood; ye shall pour it upon the
earth as water.

05:012:017 Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn,
or of thy wine, or of thy oil, or the firstlings of thy herds or of thy
flock, nor any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy freewill
offerings, or heave offering of thine hand:

05:012:018 But thou must eat them before the LORD thy God in the place
which the LORD thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and thy
daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that
is within thy gates: and thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God in
all that thou puttest thine hands unto.

05:012:019 Take heed to thyself that thou forsake not the Levite as long
as thou livest upon the earth.

05:012:020 When the LORD thy God shall enlarge thy border, as he hath
promised thee, and thou shalt say, I will eat flesh, because thy soul
longeth to eat flesh; thou mayest eat flesh, whatsoever thy soul lusteth
after.

05:012:021 If the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to put his
name there be too far from thee, then thou shalt kill of thy herd and of
thy flock, which the LORD hath given thee, as I have commanded thee, and
thou shalt eat in thy gates whatsoever thy soul lusteth after.

05:012:022 Even as the roebuck and the hart is eaten, so thou shalt eat
them: the unclean and the clean shall eat of them alike.

05:012:023 Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is
the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh.

05:012:024 Thou shalt not eat it; thou shalt pour it upon the earth as
water.

05:012:025 Thou shalt not eat it; that it may go well with thee, and
with thy children after thee, when thou shalt do that which is right in
the sight of the LORD.

05:012:026 Only thy holy things which thou hast, and thy vows, thou
shalt take, and go unto the place which the LORD shall choose:

05:012:027 And thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, the flesh and the
blood, upon the altar of the LORD thy God: and the blood of thy
sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of the LORD thy God, and
thou shalt eat the flesh.

05:012:028 Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that
it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for ever,
when thou doest that which is good and right in the sight of the LORD
thy God.

05:012:029 When the LORD thy God shall cut off the nations from before
thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and
dwellest in their land;

05:012:030 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following
them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou
enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their
gods? even so will I do likewise.

05:012:031 Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every
abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their
gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the
fire to their gods.

05:012:032 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt
not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

05:013:001 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams,
and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,

05:013:002 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake
unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not
known, and let us serve them;

05:013:003 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or
that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know
whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your
soul.

05:013:004 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep
his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave
unto him.

05:013:005 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to
death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God,
which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the
house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God
commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the
midst of thee.

05:013:006 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy
daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own
soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods,
which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;

05:013:007 Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you,
nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even
unto the other end of the earth;

05:013:008 Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him;
neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither
shalt thou conceal him:

05:013:009 But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first
upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.

05:013:010 And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he
hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought
thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

05:013:011 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any
such wickedness as this is among you.

05:013:012 If thou shalt hear say in one of thy cities, which the LORD
thy God hath given thee to dwell there, saying,

05:013:013 Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among
you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go
and serve other gods, which ye have not known;

05:013:014 Then shalt thou enquire, and make search, and ask diligently;
and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such
abomination is wrought among you;

05:013:015 Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the
edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and
the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.

05:013:016 And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of
the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil
thereof every whit, for the LORD thy God: and it shall be an heap for
ever; it shall not be built again.

05:013:017 And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine
hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew
thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath
sworn unto thy fathers;

05:013:018 When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to
keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that
which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God.

05:014:001 Ye are the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut
yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.

05:014:002 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the
LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all
the nations that are upon the earth.

05:014:003 Thou shalt not eat any abominable thing.

05:014:004 These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep,
and the goat,

05:014:005 The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild
goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois.

05:014:006 And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft
into two claws, and cheweth the cud among the beasts, that ye shall eat.

05:014:007 Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that chew the
cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel, and the hare,
and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; therefore
they are unclean unto you.

05:014:008 And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not
the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor
touch their dead carcase.

05:014:009 These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that
have fins and scales shall ye eat:

05:014:010 And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is
unclean unto you.

05:014:011 Of all clean birds ye shall eat.

05:014:012 But these are they of which ye shall not eat: the eagle, and
the ossifrage, and the ospray,

05:014:013 And the glede, and the kite, and the vulture after his kind,

05:014:014 And every raven after his kind,

05:014:015 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk
after his kind,

05:014:016 The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan,

05:014:017 And the pelican, and the gier eagle, and the cormorant,

05:014:018 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing,
and the bat.

05:014:019 And every creeping thing that flieth is unclean unto you:
they shall not be eaten.

05:014:020 But of all clean fowls ye may eat.

05:014:021 Ye shall not eat of anything that dieth of itself: thou shalt
give it unto the stranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat it; or
thou mayest sell it unto an alien: for thou art an holy people unto the
LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.

05:014:022 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the
field bringeth forth year by year.

05:014:023 And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place
which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of
thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy
flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.

05:014:024 And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not
able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD
thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath
blessed thee:

05:014:025 Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in
thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall
choose:

05:014:026 And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul
lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink,
or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the
LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,

05:014:027 And the Levite that is within thy gates; thou shalt not
forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee.

05:014:028 At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the
tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy
gates:

05:014:029 And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with
thee,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are
within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that the
LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou
doest.

05:015:001 At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release.

05:015:002 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that
lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it
of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD's
release.

05:015:003 Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it again: but that which is
thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;

05:015:004 Save when there shall be no poor among you; for the LORD
shall greatly bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee
for an inheritance to possess it:

05:015:005 Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy
God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this
day.

05:015:006 For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and
thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou
shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.

05:015:007 If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren
within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee,
thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor
brother:

05:015:008 But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt
surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth.

05:015:009 Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart,
saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye
be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry
unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee.

05:015:010 Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be
grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD
thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest
thine hand unto.

05:015:011 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I
command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother,
to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.

05:015:012 And if thy brother, an Hebrew man, or an Hebrew woman, be
sold unto thee, and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year thou
shalt let him go free from thee.

05:015:013 And when thou sendest him out free from thee, thou shalt not
let him go away empty:

05:015:014 Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy flock, and out of
thy floor, and out of thy winepress: of that wherewith the LORD thy God
hath blessed thee thou shalt give unto him.

05:015:015 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land
of Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee: therefore I command thee
this thing to day.

05:015:016 And it shall be, if he say unto thee, I will not go away from
thee; because he loveth thee and thine house, because he is well with
thee;

05:015:017 Then thou shalt take an aul, and thrust it through his ear
unto the door, and he shall be thy servant for ever. And also unto thy
maidservant thou shalt do likewise.

05:015:018 It shall not seem hard unto thee, when thou sendest him away
free from thee; for he hath been worth a double hired servant to thee,
in serving thee six years: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all
that thou doest.

05:015:019 All the firstling males that come of thy herd and of thy
flock thou shalt sanctify unto the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work
with the firstling of thy bullock, nor shear the firstling of thy sheep.

05:015:020 Thou shalt eat it before the LORD thy God year by year in the
place which the LORD shall choose, thou and thy household.

05:015:021 And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or
blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the
LORD thy God.

05:015:022 Thou shalt eat it within thy gates: the unclean and the clean
person shall eat it alike, as the roebuck, and as the hart.

05:015:023 Only thou shalt not eat the blood thereof; thou shalt pour it
upon the ground as water.

05:016:001 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the
LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee
forth out of Egypt by night.

05:016:002 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the LORD thy
God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD shall choose
to place his name there.

05:016:003 Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt
thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for
thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest
remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the
days of thy life.

05:016:004 And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all
thy coast seven days; neither shall there any thing of the flesh, which
thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the
morning.

05:016:005 Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy
gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee:

05:016:006 But at the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place
his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the
going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of
Egypt.

05:016:007 And thou shalt roast and eat it in the place which the LORD
thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto
thy tents.

05:016:008 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh
day shall be a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no
work therein.

05:016:009 Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the
seven weeks from such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle to the
corn.

05:016:010 And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the LORD thy God
with a tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which thou shalt
give unto the LORD thy God, according as the LORD thy God hath blessed
thee:

05:016:011 And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy
son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the
Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless,
and the widow, that are among you, in the place which the LORD thy God
hath chosen to place his name there.

05:016:012 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt:
and thou shalt observe and do these statutes.

05:016:013 Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after
that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:

05:016:014 And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and
thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite,
the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy
gates.

05:016:015 Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy
God in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the LORD thy God
shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine
hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.

05:016:016 Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the
LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of
unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of
tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:

05:016:017 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing
of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee.

05:016:018 Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates,
which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they
shall judge the people with just judgment.

05:016:019 Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect
persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the
wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.

05:016:020 That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou
mayest live, and inherit the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

05:016:021 Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the
altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt make thee.

05:016:022 Neither shalt thou set thee up any image; which the LORD thy
God hateth.

05:017:001 Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the LORD thy God any bullock,
or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness: for that is an
abomination unto the LORD thy God.

05:017:002 If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which
the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness
in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant,

05:017:003 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them,
either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not
commanded;

05:017:004 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired
diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such
abomination is wrought in Israel:

05:017:005 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which
have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that
woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

05:017:006 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he
that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness
he shall not be put to death.

05:017:007 The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him
to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So thou shalt put
the evil away from among you.

05:017:008 If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment,
between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and
stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou
arise, and get thee up into the place which the LORD thy God shall
choose;

05:017:009 And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto
the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew
thee the sentence of judgment:

05:017:010 And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of
that place which the LORD shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt
observe to do according to all that they inform thee:

05:017:011 According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach
thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou
shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew
thee, to the right hand, nor to the left.

05:017:012 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken
unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God,
or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the
evil from Israel.

05:017:013 And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more
presumptuously.

05:017:014 When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God
giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt
say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about
me;

05:017:015 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD
thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king
over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy
brother.

05:017:016 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the
people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses:
forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no
more that way.

05:017:017 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart
turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and
gold.

05:017:018 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his
kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of
that which is before the priests the Levites:

05:017:019 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the
days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep
all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:

05:017:020 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that
he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the
left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and
his children, in the midst of Israel.

05:018:001 The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall
have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings
of the LORD made by fire, and his inheritance.

05:018:002 Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their
brethren: the LORD is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them.

05:018:003 And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them
that offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox or sheep; and they shall give
unto the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw.

05:018:004 The firstfruit also of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine
oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give him.

05:018:005 For the LORD thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes,
to stand to minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons for ever.

05:018:006 And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel,
where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind unto the
place which the LORD shall choose;

05:018:007 Then he shall minister in the name of the LORD his God, as
all his brethren the Levites do, which stand there before the LORD.

05:018:008 They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which
cometh of the sale of his patrimony.

05:018:009 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God
giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those
nations.

05:018:010 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his
son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination,
or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

05:018:011 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a
wizard, or a necromancer.

05:018:012 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the
LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them
out from before thee.

05:018:013 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.

05:018:014 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto
observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God
hath not suffered thee so to do.

05:018:015 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the
midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

05:018:016 According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in
Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the
voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more,
that I die not.

05:018:017 And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which
they have spoken.

05:018:018 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren,
like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak
unto them all that I shall command him.

05:018:019 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken
unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

05:018:020 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my
name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in
the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

05:018:021 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word
which the LORD hath not spoken?

05:018:022 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing
follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not
spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be
afraid of him.

05:019:001 When the LORD thy God hath cut off the nations, whose land
the LORD thy God giveth thee, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in
their cities, and in their houses;

05:019:002 Thou shalt separate three cities for thee in the midst of thy
land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.

05:019:003 Thou shalt prepare thee a way, and divide the coasts of thy
land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to inherit, into three parts,
that every slayer may flee thither.

05:019:004 And this is the case of the slayer, which shall flee thither,
that he may live: Whoso killeth his neighbour ignorantly, whom he hated
not in time past;

05:019:005 As when a man goeth into the wood with his neighbour to hew
wood, and his hand fetcheth a stroke with the axe to cut down the tree,
and the head slippeth from the helve, and lighteth upon his neighbour,
that he die; he shall flee unto one of those cities, and live:

05:019:006 Lest the avenger of the blood pursue the slayer, while his
heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and slay him;
whereas he was not worthy of death, inasmuch as he hated him not in time
past.

05:019:007 Wherefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt separate three
cities for thee.

05:019:008 And if the LORD thy God enlarge thy coast, as he hath sworn
unto thy fathers, and give thee all the land which he promised to give
unto thy fathers;

05:019:009 If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I
command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk ever in his
ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for thee, beside these
three:

05:019:010 That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD
thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee.

05:019:011 But if any man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him,
and rise up against him, and smite him mortally that he die, and fleeth
into one of these cities:

05:019:012 Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence,
and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die.

05:019:013 Thine eye shall not pity him, but thou shalt put away the
guilt of innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with thee.

05:019:014 Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's landmark, which they of
old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the
land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.

05:019:015 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity,
or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two
witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be
established.

05:019:016 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against
him that which is wrong;

05:019:017 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall
stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be
in those days;

05:019:018 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold,
if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against
his brother;

05:019:019 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done
unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

05:019:020 And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall
henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.

05:019:021 And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye
for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

05:020:001 When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and
seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid
of them: for the LORD thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of
the land of Egypt.

05:020:002 And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that
the priest shall approach and speak unto the people,

05:020:003 And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day
unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not,
and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them;

05:020:004 For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for
you against your enemies, to save you.

05:020:005 And the officers shall speak unto the people, saying, What
man is there that hath built a new house, and hath not dedicated it? let
him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle, and another
man dedicate it.

05:020:006 And what man is he that hath planted a vineyard, and hath not
yet eaten of it? let him also go and return unto his house, lest he die
in the battle, and another man eat of it.

05:020:007 And what man is there that hath betrothed a wife, and hath
not taken her? let him go and return unto his house, lest he die in the
battle, and another man take her.

05:020:008 And the officers shall speak further unto the people, and
they shall say, What man is there that is fearful and fainthearted? let
him go and return unto his house, lest his brethren's heart faint as
well as his heart.

05:020:009 And it shall be, when the officers have made an end of
speaking unto the people that they shall make captains of the armies to
lead the people.

05:020:010 When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then
proclaim peace unto it.

05:020:011 And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open
unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein
shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee.

05:020:012 And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war
against thee, then thou shalt besiege it:

05:020:013 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands,
thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:

05:020:014 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all
that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto
thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD
thy God hath given thee.

05:020:015 Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far off
from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations.

05:020:016 But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God
doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that
breatheth:

05:020:017 But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites,
and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and
the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee:

05:020:018 That they teach you not to do after all their abominations,
which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the LORD
your God.

05:020:019 When thou shalt besiege a city a long time, in making war
against it to take it, thou shalt not destroy the trees thereof by
forcing an axe against them: for thou mayest eat of them, and thou shalt
not cut them down (for the tree of the field is man's life) to employ
them in the siege:

05:020:020 Only the trees which thou knowest that they be not trees for
meat, thou shalt destroy and cut them down; and thou shalt build
bulwarks against the city that maketh war with thee, until it be
subdued.

05:021:001 If one be found slain in the land which the LORD thy God
giveth thee to possess it, lying in the field, and it be not known who
hath slain him:

05:021:002 Then thy elders and thy judges shall come forth, and they
shall measure unto the cities which are round about him that is slain:

05:021:003 And it shall be, that the city which is next unto the slain
man, even the elders of that city shall take an heifer, which hath not
been wrought with, and which hath not drawn in the yoke;

05:021:004 And the elders of that city shall bring down the heifer unto
a rough valley, which is neither eared nor sown, and shall strike off
the heifer's neck there in the valley:

05:021:005 And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near; for them
the LORD thy God hath chosen to minister unto him, and to bless in the
name of the LORD; and by their word shall every controversy and every
stroke be tried:

05:021:006 And all the elders of that city, that are next unto the slain
man, shall wash their hands over the heifer that is beheaded in the
valley:

05:021:007 And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this
blood, neither have our eyes seen it.

05:021:008 Be merciful, O LORD, unto thy people Israel, whom thou hast
redeemed, and lay not innocent blood unto thy people of Israel's charge.
And the blood shall be forgiven them.

05:021:009 So shalt thou put away the guilt of innocent blood from among
you, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the LORD.

05:021:010 When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the
LORD thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken
them captive,

05:021:011 And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a
desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife;

05:021:012 Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall
shave her head, and pare her nails;

05:021:013 And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her,
and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her mother a
full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her
husband, and she shall be thy wife.

05:021:014 And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou
shalt let her go whither she will; but thou shalt not sell her at all
for money, thou shalt not make merchandise of her, because thou hast
humbled her.

05:021:015 If a man have two wives, one beloved, and another hated, and
they have born him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the
firstborn son be hers that was hated:

05:021:016 Then it shall be, when he maketh his sons to inherit that
which he hath, that he may not make the son of the beloved firstborn
before the son of the hated, which is indeed the firstborn:

05:021:017 But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated for the
firstborn, by giving him a double portion of all that he hath: for he is
the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his.

05:021:018 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not
obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when
they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:

05:021:019 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and
bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his
place;

05:021:020 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son
is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton,
and a drunkard.

05:021:021 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that
he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall
hear, and fear.

05:021:022 And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be
to be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree:

05:021:023 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou
shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed
of God;) that thy land be not defiled, which the LORD thy God giveth
thee for an inheritance.

05:022:001 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ox or his sheep go astray,
and hide thyself from them: thou shalt in any case bring them again unto
thy brother.

05:022:002 And if thy brother be not nigh unto thee, or if thou know him
not, then thou shalt bring it unto thine own house, and it shall be with
thee until thy brother seek after it, and thou shalt restore it to him
again.

05:022:003 In like manner shalt thou do with his ass; and so shalt thou
do with his raiment; and with all lost thing of thy brother's, which he
hath lost, and thou hast found, shalt thou do likewise: thou mayest not
hide thyself.

05:022:004 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ass or his ox fall down by
the way, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt surely help him to lift
them up again.

05:022:005 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man,
neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are
abomination unto the LORD thy God.

05:022:006 If a bird's nest chance to be before thee in the way in any
tree, or on the ground, whether they be young ones, or eggs, and the dam
sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam
with the young:

05:022:007 But thou shalt in any wise let the dam go, and take the young
to thee; that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy
days.

05:022:008 When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a
battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood upon thine house, if
any man fall from thence.

05:022:009 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the
fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard,
be defiled.

05:022:010 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.

05:022:011 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen
and linen together.

05:022:012 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy
vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.

05:022:013 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,

05:022:014 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an
evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her,
I found her not a maid:

05:022:015 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and
bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the
city in the gate:

05:022:016 And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my
daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;

05:022:017 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her,
saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of
my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the
elders of the city.

05:022:018 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise
him;

05:022:019 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver,
and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up
an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may
not put her away all his days.

05:022:020 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not
found for the damsel:

05:022:021 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her
father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that
she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in
her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

05:022:022 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband,
then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman,
and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.

05:022:023 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband,
and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

05:022:024 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city,
and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because
she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled
his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.

05:022:025 But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the
man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her
shall die.

05:022:026 But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the
damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth against his
neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter:

05:022:027 For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel
cried, and there was none to save her.

05:022:028 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not
betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

05:022:029 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's
father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he
hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

05:022:030 A man shall not take his father's wife, nor discover his
father's skirt.

05:023:001 He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member
cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD.

05:023:002 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD;
even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of
the LORD.

05:023:003 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation
of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into
the congregation of the LORD for ever:

05:023:004 Because they met you not with bread and with water in the
way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against
thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee.

05:023:005 Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam;
but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because
the LORD thy God loved thee.

05:023:006 Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy
days for ever.

05:023:007 Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy brother: thou
shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou wast a stranger in his land.

05:023:008 The children that are begotten of them shall enter into the
congregation of the LORD in their third generation.

05:023:009 When the host goeth forth against thine enemies, then keep
thee from every wicked thing.

05:023:010 If there be among you any man, that is not clean by reason of
uncleanness that chanceth him by night, then shall he go abroad out of
the camp, he shall not come within the camp:

05:023:011 But it shall be, when evening cometh on, he shall wash
himself with water: and when the sun is down, he shall come into the
camp again.

05:023:012 Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, whither thou
shalt go forth abroad:

05:023:013 And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall
be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and
shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee:

05:023:014 For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to
deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall
thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away
from thee.

05:023:015 Thou shalt not deliver unto his master the servant which is
escaped from his master unto thee:

05:023:016 He shall dwell with thee, even among you, in that place which
he shall choose in one of thy gates, where it liketh him best: thou
shalt not oppress him.

05:023:017 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a
sodomite of the sons of Israel.

05:023:018 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a
dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these
are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

05:023:019 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of
money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:

05:023:020 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy
brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless
thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou
goest to possess it.

05:023:021 When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt
not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of
thee; and it would be sin in thee.

05:023:022 But if thou shalt forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in thee.

05:023:023 That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and
perform; even a freewill offering, according as thou hast vowed unto the
LORD thy God, which thou hast promised with thy mouth.

05:023:024 When thou comest into thy neighbour's vineyard, then thou
mayest eat grapes thy fill at thine own pleasure; but thou shalt not put
any in thy vessel.

05:023:025 When thou comest into the standing corn of thy neighbour,
then thou mayest pluck the ears with thine hand; but thou shalt not move
a sickle unto thy neighbour's standing corn.

05:024:001 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to
pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some
uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and
give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

05:024:002 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be
another man's wife.

05:024:003 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of
divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his
house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;

05:024:004 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her
again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination
before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the
LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

05:024:005 When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war,
neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at
home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken.

05:024:006 No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to
pledge: for he taketh a man's life to pledge.

05:024:007 If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the
children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then
that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you.

05:024:008 Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that thou observe
diligently, and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall
teach you: as I commanded them, so ye shall observe to do.

05:024:009 Remember what the LORD thy God did unto Miriam by the way,
after that ye were come forth out of Egypt.

05:024:010 When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go
into his house to fetch his pledge.

05:024:011 Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend
shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee.

05:024:012 And if the man be poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:

05:024:013 In any case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the
sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless thee:
and it shall be righteousness unto thee before the LORD thy God.

05:024:014 Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant that is poor and
needy, whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that are in
thy land within thy gates:

05:024:015 At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the
sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest
he cry against thee unto the LORD, and it be sin unto thee.

05:024:016 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children,
neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man
shall be put to death for his own sin.

05:024:017 Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of
the fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge:

05:024:018 But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt,
and the LORD thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command thee to
do this thing.

05:024:019 When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast
forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it
shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that
the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.

05:024:020 When thou beatest thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over
the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and
for the widow.

05:024:021 When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt
not glean it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the
fatherless, and for the widow.

05:024:022 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land
of Egypt: therefore I command thee to do this thing.

05:025:001 If there be a controversy between men, and they come unto
judgment, that the judges may judge them; then they shall justify the
righteous, and condemn the wicked.

05:025:002 And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to be beaten,
that the judge shall cause him to lie down, and to be beaten before his
face, according to his fault, by a certain number.

05:025:003 Forty stripes he may give him, and not exceed: lest, if he
should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then thy
brother should seem vile unto thee.

05:025:004 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.

05:025:005 If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no
child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her
husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and
perform the duty of an husband's brother unto her.

05:025:006 And it shall be, that the firstborn which she beareth shall
succeed in the name of his brother which is dead, that his name be not
put out of Israel.

05:025:007 And if the man like not to take his brother's wife, then let
his brother's wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, My
husband's brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in
Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband's brother.

05:025:008 Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto
him: and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her;

05:025:009 Then shall his brother's wife come unto him in the presence
of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his
face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto that man that
will not build up his brother's house.

05:025:010 And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that
hath his shoe loosed.

05:025:011 When men strive together one with another, and the wife of
the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him
that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the
secrets:

05:025:012 Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity
her.

05:025:013 Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a
small.

05:025:014 Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great
and a small.

05:025:015 But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and
just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the
land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

05:025:016 For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously,
are an abomination unto the LORD thy God.

05:025:017 Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were
come forth out of Egypt;

05:025:018 How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee,
even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary;
and he feared not God.

05:025:019 Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given thee
rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy
God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot
out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget
it.

05:026:001 And it shall be, when thou art come in unto the land which
the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and possessest it, and
dwellest therein;

05:026:002 That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the
earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the LORD thy God giveth
thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto the place which
the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name there.

05:026:003 And thou shalt go unto the priest that shall be in those
days, and say unto him, I profess this day unto the LORD thy God, that I
am come unto the country which the LORD sware unto our fathers for to
give us.

05:026:004 And the priest shall take the basket out of thine hand, and
set it down before the altar of the LORD thy God.

05:026:005 And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God, A
Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and
sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation, great, mighty,
and populous:

05:026:006 And the Egyptians evil entreated us, and afflicted us, and
laid upon us hard bondage:

05:026:007 And when we cried unto the LORD God of our fathers, the LORD
heard our voice, and looked on our affliction, and our labour, and our
oppression:

05:026:008 And the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty
hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and
with signs, and with wonders:

05:026:009 And he hath brought us into this place, and hath given us
this land, even a land that floweth with milk and honey.

05:026:010 And now, behold, I have brought the firstfruits of the land,
which thou, O LORD, hast given me. And thou shalt set it before the LORD
thy God, and worship before the LORD thy God:

05:026:011 And thou shalt rejoice in every good thing which the LORD thy
God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house, thou, and the Levite,
and the stranger that is among you.

05:026:012 When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine
increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it
unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they
may eat within thy gates, and be filled;

05:026:013 Then thou shalt say before the LORD thy God, I have brought
away the hallowed things out of mine house, and also have given them
unto the Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the
widow, according to all thy commandments which thou hast commanded me: I
have not transgressed thy commandments, neither have I forgotten them.

05:026:014 I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken
away ought thereof for any unclean use, nor given ought thereof for the
dead: but I have hearkened to the voice of the LORD my God, and have
done according to all that thou hast commanded me.

05:026:015 Look down from thy holy habitation, from heaven, and bless
thy people Israel, and the land which thou hast given us, as thou
swarest unto our fathers, a land that floweth with milk and honey.

05:026:016 This day the LORD thy God hath commanded thee to do these
statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all
thine heart, and with all thy soul.

05:026:017 Thou hast avouched the LORD this day to be thy God, and to
walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and
his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice:

05:026:018 And the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar
people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his
commandments;

05:026:019 And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made,
in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy
people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken.

05:027:001 And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people,
saying, Keep all the commandments which I command you this day.

05:027:002 And it shall be on the day when ye shall pass over Jordan
unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, that thou shalt set
thee up great stones, and plaister them with plaister:

05:027:003 And thou shalt write upon them all the words of this law,
when thou art passed over, that thou mayest go in unto the land which
the LORD thy God giveth thee, a land that floweth with milk and honey;
as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee.

05:027:004 Therefore it shall be when ye be gone over Jordan, that ye
shall set up these stones, which I command you this day, in mount Ebal,
and thou shalt plaister them with plaister.

05:027:005 And there shalt thou build an altar unto the LORD thy God, an
altar of stones: thou shalt not lift up any iron tool upon them.

05:027:006 Thou shalt build the altar of the LORD thy God of whole
stones: and thou shalt offer burnt offerings thereon unto the LORD thy
God:

05:027:007 And thou shalt offer peace offerings, and shalt eat there,
and rejoice before the LORD thy God.

05:027:008 And thou shalt write upon the stones all the words of this
law very plainly.

05:027:009 And Moses and the priests the Levites spake unto all Israel,
saying, Take heed, and hearken, O Israel; this day thou art become the
people of the LORD thy God.

05:027:010 Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and
do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee this day.

05:027:011 And Moses charged the people the same day, saying,

05:027:012 These shall stand upon mount Gerizim to bless the people,
when ye are come over Jordan; Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar,
and Joseph, and Benjamin:

05:027:013 And these shall stand upon mount Ebal to curse; Reuben, Gad,
and Asher, and Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.

05:027:014 And the Levites shall speak, and say unto all the men of
Israel with a loud voice,

05:027:015 Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an
abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and
putteth it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say,
Amen.

05:027:016 Cursed be he that setteth light by his father or his mother.
And all the people shall say, Amen.

05:027:017 Cursed be he that removeth his neighbour's landmark. And all
the people shall say, Amen.

05:027:018 Cursed be he that maketh the blind to wander out of the way.
And all the people shall say, Amen.

05:027:019 Cursed be he that perverteth the judgment of the stranger,
fatherless, and widow. And all the people shall say, Amen.

05:027:020 Cursed be he that lieth with his father's wife; because he
uncovereth his father's skirt. And all the people shall say, Amen.

05:027:021 Cursed be he that lieth with any manner of beast. And all the
people shall say, Amen.

05:027:022 Cursed be he that lieth with his sister, the daughter of his
father, or the daughter of his mother. And all the people shall say,
Amen.

05:027:023 Cursed be he that lieth with his mother in law. And all the
people shall say, Amen.

05:027:024 Cursed be he that smiteth his neighbour secretly. And all the
people shall say, Amen.

05:027:025 Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person.
And all the people shall say, Amen.

05:027:026 Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to
do them. And all the people shall say, Amen.

05:028:001 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently
unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his
commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will
set thee on high above all nations of the earth:

05:028:002 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake
thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.

05:028:003 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be
in the field.

05:028:004 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy
ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the
flocks of thy sheep.

05:028:005 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.

05:028:006 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt
thou be when thou goest out.

05:028:007 The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee
to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way,
and flee before thee seven ways.

05:028:008 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy
storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall
bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

05:028:009 The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as
he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD
thy God, and walk in his ways.

05:028:010 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by
the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.

05:028:011 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit
of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy
ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee.

05:028:012 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven
to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work
of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not
borrow.

05:028:013 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and
thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou
hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee
this day, to observe and to do them:

05:028:014 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I
command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after
other gods to serve them.

05:028:015 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the
voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his
statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come
upon thee, and overtake thee:

05:028:016 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in
the field.

05:028:017 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.

05:028:018 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy
land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

05:028:019 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt
thou be when thou goest out.

05:028:020 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke,
in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be
destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of
thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

05:028:021 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he
have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.

05:028:022 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a
fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with
the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue
thee until thou perish.

05:028:023 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the
earth that is under thee shall be iron.

05:028:024 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust:
from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

05:028:025 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies:
thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them:
and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

05:028:026 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and
unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.

05:028:027 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with
the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst
not be healed.

05:028:028 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and
astonishment of heart:

05:028:029 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in
darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only
oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.

05:028:030 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with
her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou
shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.

05:028:031 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not
eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy
face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto
thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.

05:028:032 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another
people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all
the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.

05:028:033 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation
which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and
crushed alway:

05:028:034 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which
thou shalt see.

05:028:035 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with
a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the
top of thy head.

05:028:036 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set
over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known;
and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.

05:028:037 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a
byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.

05:028:038 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt
gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.

05:028:039 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither
drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them.

05:028:040 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but
thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast
his fruit.

05:028:041 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy
them; for they shall go into captivity.

05:028:042 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.

05:028:043 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very
high; and thou shalt come down very low.

05:028:044 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he
shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

05:028:045 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall
pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou
hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his
commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:

05:028:046 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and
upon thy seed for ever.

05:028:047 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness,
and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

05:028:048 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall
send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in
want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until
he have destroyed thee.

05:028:049 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the
end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue
thou shalt not understand;

05:028:050 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the
person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:

05:028:051 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of
thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee
either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy
sheep, until he have destroyed thee.

05:028:052 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high
and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy
land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy
land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.

05:028:053 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of
thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee,
in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall
distress thee:

05:028:054 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate,
his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his
bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:

05:028:055 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his
children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the
siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress
thee in all thy gates.

05:028:056 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not
adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness
and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom,
and toward her son, and toward her daughter,

05:028:057 And toward her young one that cometh out from between her
feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat
them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness,
wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.

05:028:058 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that
are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and
fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;

05:028:059 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the
plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and
sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.

05:028:060 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt,
which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.

05:028:061 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written
in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou
be destroyed.

05:028:062 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the
stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice
of the LORD thy God.

05:028:063 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you
to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you
to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from
off the land whither thou goest to possess it.

05:028:064 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the
one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve
other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and
stone.

05:028:065 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither
shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there
a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:

05:028:066 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt
fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:

05:028:067 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at
even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine
heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which
thou shalt see.

05:028:068 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by
the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and
there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and
no man shall buy you.

05:029:001 These are the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded
Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside
the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.

05:029:002 And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have
seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto
Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;

05:029:003 The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs,
and those great miracles:

05:029:004 Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and
eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.

05:029:005 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your
clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon
thy foot.

05:029:006 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong
drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.

05:029:007 And when ye came unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon,
and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto battle, and we smote
them:

05:029:008 And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance unto
the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh.

05:029:009 Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that
ye may prosper in all that ye do.

05:029:010 Ye stand this day all of you before the LORD your God; your
captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, with all the
men of Israel,

05:029:011 Your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that is in thy
camp, from the hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water:

05:029:012 That thou shouldest enter into covenant with the LORD thy
God, and into his oath, which the LORD thy God maketh with thee this
day:

05:029:013 That he may establish thee to day for a people unto himself,
and that he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said unto thee, and as he
hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

05:029:014 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;

05:029:015 But with him that standeth here with us this day before the
LORD our God, and also with him that is not here with us this day:

05:029:016 (For ye know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how
we came through the nations which ye passed by;

05:029:017 And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood
and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:)

05:029:018 Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or
tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go
and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a
root that beareth gall and wormwood;

05:029:019 And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse,
that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I
walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst:

05:029:020 The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD
and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that
are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD shall blot out
his name from under heaven.

05:029:021 And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the
tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are
written in this book of the law:

05:029:022 So that the generation to come of your children that shall
rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land,
shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses
which the LORD hath laid upon it;

05:029:023 And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and
burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth
therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim,
which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:

05:029:024 Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus
unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?

05:029:025 Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant
of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he
brought them forth out of the land of Egypt:

05:029:026 For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them,
gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them:

05:029:027 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to
bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:

05:029:028 And the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in
wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it
is this day.

05:029:029 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those
things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever,
that we may do all the words of this law.

05:030:001 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come
upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and
thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy
God hath driven thee,

05:030:002 And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his
voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy
children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;

05:030:003 That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have
compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the
nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.

05:030:004 If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of
heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence
will he fetch thee:

05:030:005 And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy
fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good,
and multiply thee above thy fathers.

05:030:006 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the
heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and
with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

05:030:007 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine
enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.

05:030:008 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do
all his commandments which I command thee this day.

05:030:009 And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work
of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle,
and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice
over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:

05:030:010 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to
keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of
the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart,
and with all thy soul.

05:030:011 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not
hidden from thee, neither is it far off.

05:030:012 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up
for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?

05:030:013 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who
shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it,
and do it?

05:030:014 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy
heart, that thou mayest do it.

05:030:015 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death
and evil;

05:030:016 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to
walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his
judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God
shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

05:030:017 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but
shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

05:030:018 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish,
and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou
passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

05:030:019 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore
choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

05:030:020 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest
obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy
life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land
which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to
Jacob, to give them.

05:031:001 And Moses went and spake these words unto all Israel.

05:031:002 And he said unto them, I am an hundred and twenty years old
this day; I can no more go out and come in: also the LORD hath said unto
me, Thou shalt not go over this Jordan.

05:031:003 The LORD thy God, he will go over before thee, and he will
destroy these nations from before thee, and thou shalt possess them: and
Joshua, he shall go over before thee, as the LORD hath said.

05:031:004 And the LORD shall do unto them as he did to Sihon and to Og,
kings of the Amorites, and unto the land of them, whom he destroyed.

05:031:005 And the LORD shall give them up before your face, that ye may
do unto them according unto all the commandments which I have commanded
you.

05:031:006 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of
them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not
fail thee, nor forsake thee.

05:031:007 And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight
of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with
this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers
to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.

05:031:008 And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be
with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not,
neither be dismayed.

05:031:009 And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests
the sons of Levi, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and
unto all the elders of Israel.

05:031:010 And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven
years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of
tabernacles,

05:031:011 When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in
the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all
Israel in their hearing.

05:031:012 Gather the people together, men and women, and children, and
thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they
may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words
of this law:

05:031:013 And that their children, which have not known any thing, may
hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the
land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.

05:031:014 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thy days approach that
thou must die: call Joshua, and present yourselves in the tabernacle of
the congregation, that I may give him a charge. And Moses and Joshua
went, and presented themselves in the tabernacle of the congregation.

05:031:015 And the LORD appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a
cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the
tabernacle.

05:031:016 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with
thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the
gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and
will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.

05:031:017 Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and
I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall
be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they
will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God
is not among us?

05:031:018 And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils
which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods.

05:031:019 Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the
children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a
witness for me against the children of Israel.

05:031:020 For when I shall have brought them into the land which I
sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they
shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they
turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my
covenant.

05:031:021 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are
befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness;
for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I
know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have
brought them into the land which I sware.

05:031:022 Moses therefore wrote this song the same day, and taught it
the children of Israel.

05:031:023 And he gave Joshua the son of Nun a charge, and said, Be
strong and of a good courage: for thou shalt bring the children of
Israel into the land which I sware unto them: and I will be with thee.

05:031:024 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing
the words of this law in a book, until they were finished,

05:031:025 That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the
covenant of the LORD, saying,

05:031:026 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark
of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness
against thee.

05:031:027 For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I
am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the
LORD; and how much more after my death?

05:031:028 Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your
officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven
and earth to record against them.

05:031:029 For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt
yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and
evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the
sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your
hands.

05:031:030 And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel
the words of this song, until they were ended.

05:032:001 Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth,
the words of my mouth.

05:032:002 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as
the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon
the grass:

05:032:003 Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye
greatness unto our God.

05:032:004 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are
judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

05:032:005 They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of
his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.

05:032:006 Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is
not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and
established thee?

05:032:007 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many
generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they
will tell thee.

05:032:008 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance,
when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people
according to the number of the children of Israel.

05:032:009 For the LORD's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his
inheritance.

05:032:010 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling
wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the
apple of his eye.

05:032:011 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young,
spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:

05:032:012 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god
with him.

05:032:013 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he
might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out
of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;

05:032:014 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and
rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of
wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.

05:032:015 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou
art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God
which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

05:032:016 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with
abominations provoked they him to anger.

05:032:017 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they
knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.

05:032:018 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast
forgotten God that formed thee.

05:032:019 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the
provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.

05:032:020 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what
their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in
whom is no faith.

05:032:021 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God;
they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them
to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to
anger with a foolish nation.

05:032:022 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the
lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on
fire the foundations of the mountains.

05:032:023 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows
upon them.

05:032:024 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning
heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts
upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.

05:032:025 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the
young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.

05:032:026 I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the
remembrance of them to cease from among men:

05:032:027 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their
adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should
say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this.

05:032:028 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any
understanding in them.

05:032:029 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they
would consider their latter end!

05:032:030 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to
flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?

05:032:031 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies
themselves being judges.

05:032:032 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of
Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:

05:032:033 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of
asps.

05:032:034 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my
treasures?

05:032:035 To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall
slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the
things that shall come upon them make haste.

05:032:036 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for
his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none
shut up, or left.

05:032:037 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom
they trusted,

05:032:038 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine
of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your
protection.

05:032:039 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I
kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that
can deliver out of my hand.

05:032:040 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.

05:032:041 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on
judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them
that hate me.

05:032:042 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall
devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives,
from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.

05:032:043 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge
the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries,
and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.

05:032:044 And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the
ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun.

05:032:045 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all
Israel:

05:032:046 And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words
which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children
to observe to do, all the words of this law.

05:032:047 For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life:
and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither
ye go over Jordan to possess it.

05:032:048 And the LORD spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying,

05:032:049 Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which
is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the
land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a
possession:

05:032:050 And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered
unto thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was
gathered unto his people:

05:032:051 Because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel
at the waters of MeribahKadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye
sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel.

05:032:052 Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not
go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.

05:033:001 And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God
blessed the children of Israel before his death.

05:033:002 And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir
unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten
thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.

05:033:003 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy hand: and
they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy words.

05:033:004 Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the
congregation of Jacob.

05:033:005 And he was king in Jeshurun, when the heads of the people and
the tribes of Israel were gathered together.

05:033:006 Let Reuben live, and not die; and let not his men be few.

05:033:007 And this is the blessing of Judah: and he said, Hear, LORD,
the voice of Judah, and bring him unto his people: let his hands be
sufficient for him; and be thou an help to him from his enemies.

05:033:008 And of Levi he said, Let thy Thummim and thy Urim be with thy
holy one, whom thou didst prove at Massah, and with whom thou didst
strive at the waters of Meribah;

05:033:009 Who said unto his father and to his mother, I have not seen
him; neither did he acknowledge his brethren, nor knew his own children:
for they have observed thy word, and kept thy covenant.

05:033:010 They shall teach Jacob thy judgments, and Israel thy law:
they shall put incense before thee, and whole burnt sacrifice upon thine
altar.

05:033:011 Bless, LORD, his substance, and accept the work of his hands;
smite through the loins of them that rise against him, and of them that
hate him, that they rise not again.

05:033:012 And of Benjamin he said, The beloved of the LORD shall dwell
in safety by him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long, and he
shall dwell between his shoulders.

05:033:013 And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, for
the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that
coucheth beneath,

05:033:014 And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for
the precious things put forth by the moon,

05:033:015 And for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for
the precious things of the lasting hills,

05:033:016 And for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof,
and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush: let the blessing
come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that
was separated from his brethren.

05:033:017 His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns
are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people
together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of
Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh.

05:033:018 And of Zebulun he said, Rejoice, Zebulun, in thy going out;
and, Issachar, in thy tents.

05:033:019 They shall call the people unto the mountain; there they
shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck of the
abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand.

05:033:020 And of Gad he said, Blessed be he that enlargeth Gad: he
dwelleth as a lion, and teareth the arm with the crown of the head.

05:033:021 And he provided the first part for himself, because there, in
a portion of the lawgiver, was he seated; and he came with the heads of
the people, he executed the justice of the LORD, and his judgments with
Israel.

05:033:022 And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion's whelp: he shall leap from
Bashan.

05:033:023 And of Naphtali he said, O Naphtali, satisfied with favour,
and full with the blessing of the LORD: possess thou the west and the
south.

05:033:024 And of Asher he said, Let Asher be blessed with children; let
him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil.

05:033:025 Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall
thy strength be.

05:033:026 There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon
the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.

05:033:027 The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the
everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee;
and shall say, Destroy them.

05:033:028 Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of
Jacob shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop
down dew.

05:033:029 Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people
saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy
excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou
shalt tread upon their high places.

05:034:001 And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain
of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the
LORD shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,

05:034:002 And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and
all the land of Judah, unto the utmost sea,

05:034:003 And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the
city of palm trees, unto Zoar.

05:034:004 And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware
unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto
thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt
not go over thither.

05:034:005 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of
Moab, according to the word of the LORD.

05:034:006 And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over
against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.

05:034:007 And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died:
his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

05:034:008 And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of
Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were
ended.

05:034:009 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom;
for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel
hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses.

05:034:010 And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto
Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face,

05:034:011 In all the signs and the wonders, which the LORD sent him to
do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all
his land,

05:034:012 And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror
which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.



BOOK 06 Joshua


0$:001:001 Now after the death of Moses the servant of
the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of
Nun, Moses' minister, saying,

06:001:002 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this
Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to
them, even to the children of Israel.

06:001:003 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that
have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

06:001:004 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great
river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the
great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.

06:001:005 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the
days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will
not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

06:001:006 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt
thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their
fathers to give them.

06:001:007 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest
observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded
thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou
mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

06:001:008 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but
thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to
do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make
thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

06:001:009 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with
thee whithersoever thou goest.

06:001:010 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,

06:001:011 Pass through the host, and command the people, saying,
Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this
Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the LORD your God giveth you
to possess it.

06:001:012 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the
tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,

06:001:013 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD
commanded you, saying, The LORD your God hath given you rest, and hath
given you this land.

06:001:014 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain
in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass
before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them;

06:001:015 Until the LORD have given your brethren rest, as he hath
given you, and they also have possessed the land which the LORD your God
giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and
enjoy it, which Moses the LORD's servant gave you on this side Jordan
toward the sunrising.

06:001:016 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us
we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go.

06:001:017 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will
we hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with
Moses.

06:001:018 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and
will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he
shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.

06:002:001 And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men to spy
secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went, and
came into an harlot's house, named Rahab, and lodged there.

06:002:002 And it was told the king of Jericho, saying, Behold, there
came men in hither to night of the children of Israel to search out the
country.

06:002:003 And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, Bring forth
the men that are come to thee, which are entered into thine house: for
they be come to search out all the country.

06:002:004 And the woman took the two men, and hid them, and said thus,
There came men unto me, but I wist not whence they were:

06:002:005 And it came to pass about the time of shutting of the gate,
when it was dark, that the men went out: whither the men went I wot not:
pursue after them quickly; for ye shall overtake them.

06:002:006 But she had brought them up to the roof of the house, and hid
them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order upon the roof.

06:002:007 And the men pursued after them the way to Jordan unto the
fords: and as soon as they which pursued after them were gone out, they
shut the gate.

06:002:008 And before they were laid down, she came up unto them upon
the roof;

06:002:009 And she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given
you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the
inhabitants of the land faint because of you.

06:002:010 For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red
sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two
kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og,
whom ye utterly destroyed.

06:002:011 And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did
melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of
you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth
beneath.

06:002:012 Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the LORD, since I
have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my
father's house, and give me a true token:

06:002:013 And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my
brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives
from death.

06:002:014 And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not
this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD hath given us the
land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee.

06:002:015 Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her
house was upon the town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall.

06:002:016 And she said unto them, Get you to the mountain, lest the
pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three days, until the
pursuers be returned: and afterward may ye go your way.

06:002:017 And the men said unto her, We will be blameless of this thine
oath which thou hast made us swear.

06:002:018 Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line
of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and
thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all
thy father's household, home unto thee.

06:002:019 And it shall be, that whosoever shall go out of the doors of
thy house into the street, his blood shall be upon his head, and we will
be guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, his blood
shall be on our head, if any hand be upon him.

06:002:020 And if thou utter this our business, then we will be quit of
thine oath which thou hast made us to swear.

06:002:021 And she said, According unto your words, so be it. And she
sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the
window.

06:002:022 And they went, and came unto the mountain, and abode there
three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers sought
them throughout all the way, but found them not.

06:002:023 So the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and
passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all things
that befell them:

06:002:024 And they said unto Joshua, Truly the LORD hath delivered into
our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do
faint because of us.

06:003:001 And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from
Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and
lodged there before they passed over.

06:003:002 And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went
through the host;

06:003:003 And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of
the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing
it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it.

06:003:004 Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two
thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the
way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore.

06:003:005 And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to
morrow the LORD will do wonders among you.

06:003:006 And Joshua spake unto the priests, saying, Take up the ark of
the covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took up the ark
of the covenant, and went before the people.

06:003:007 And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to
magnify thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I
was with Moses, so I will be with thee.

06:003:008 And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the
covenant, saying, When ye are come to the brink of the water of Jordan,
ye shall stand still in Jordan.

06:003:009 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and
hear the words of the LORD your God.

06:003:010 And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God is
among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the
Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and
the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites.

06:003:011 Behold, the ark of the covenant of the LORD of all the earth
passeth over before you into Jordan.

06:003:012 Now therefore take you twelve men out of the tribes of
Israel, out of every tribe a man.

06:003:013 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet
of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the LORD of all the earth,
shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be
cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand
upon an heap.

06:003:014 And it came to pass, when the people removed from their
tents, to pass over Jordan, and the priests bearing the ark of the
covenant before the people;

06:003:015 And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the
feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the
water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest,)

06:003:016 That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up
upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and
those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea,
failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against
Jericho.

06:003:017 And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD
stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites
passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over
Jordan.

06:004:001 And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed
over Jordan, that the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying,

06:004:002 Take you twelve men out of the people, out of every tribe a
man,

06:004:003 And command ye them, saying, Take you hence out of the midst
of Jordan, out of the place where the priests' feet stood firm, twelve
stones, and ye shall carry them over with you, and leave them in the
lodging place, where ye shall lodge this night.

06:004:004 Then Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of
the children of Israel, out of every tribe a man:

06:004:005 And Joshua said unto them, Pass over before the ark of the
LORD your God into the midst of Jordan, and take you up every man of you
a stone upon his shoulder, according unto the number of the tribes of
the children of Israel:

06:004:006 That this may be a sign among you, that when your children
ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean ye by these stones?

06:004:007 Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut
off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it passed over
Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones shall be for
a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever.

06:004:008 And the children of Israel did so as Joshua commanded, and
took up twelve stones out of the midst of Jordan, as the LORD spake unto
Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel,
and carried them over with them unto the place where they lodged, and
laid them down there.

06:004:009 And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan, in
the place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the
covenant stood: and they are there unto this day.

06:004:010 For the priests which bare the ark stood in the midst of
Jordan, until everything was finished that the LORD commanded Joshua to
speak unto the people, according to all that Moses commanded Joshua: and
the people hasted and passed over.

06:004:011 And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed
over, that the ark of the LORD passed over, and the priests, in the
presence of the people.

06:004:012 And the children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, and half
the tribe of Manasseh, passed over armed before the children of Israel,
as Moses spake unto them:

06:004:013 About forty thousand prepared for war passed over before the
LORD unto battle, to the plains of Jericho.

06:004:014 On that day the LORD magnified Joshua in the sight of all
Israel; and they feared him, as they feared Moses, all the days of his
life.

06:004:015 And the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying,

06:004:016 Command the priests that bear the ark of the testimony, that
they come up out of Jordan.

06:004:017 Joshua therefore commanded the priests, saying, Come ye up
out of Jordan.

06:004:018 And it came to pass, when the priests that bare the ark of
the covenant of the LORD were come up out of the midst of Jordan, and
the soles of the priests' feet were lifted up unto the dry land, that
the waters of Jordan returned unto their place, and flowed over all his
banks, as they did before.

06:004:019 And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the
first month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of Jericho.

06:004:020 And those twelve stones, which they took out of Jordan, did
Joshua pitch in Gilgal.

06:004:021 And he spake unto the children of Israel, saying, When your
children shall ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean
these stones?

06:004:022 Then ye shall let your children know, saying, Israel came
over this Jordan on dry land.

06:004:023 For the LORD your God dried up the waters of Jordan from
before you, until ye were passed over, as the LORD your God did to the
Red sea, which he dried up from before us, until we were gone over:

06:004:024 That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the
LORD, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God for ever.

06:005:001 And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites,
which were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the
Canaanites, which were by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried up the
waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were
passed over, that their heart melted, neither was there spirit in them
any more, because of the children of Israel.

06:005:002 At that time the LORD said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp
knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time.

06:005:003 And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the
children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.

06:005:004 And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the
people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the men of war,
died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt.

06:005:005 Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all
the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came
forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised.

06:005:006 For the children of Israel walked forty years in the
wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of
Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD:
unto whom the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the
LORD sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth
with milk and honey.

06:005:007 And their children, whom he raised up in their stead, them
Joshua circumcised: for they were uncircumcised, because they had not
circumcised them by the way.

06:005:008 And it came to pass, when they had done circumcising all the
people, that they abode in their places in the camp, till they were
whole.

06:005:009 And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away
the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is
called Gilgal unto this day.

06:005:010 And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the
passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of
Jericho.

06:005:011 And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow
after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame
day.

06:005:012 And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of
the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any
more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.

06:005:013 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he
lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over
against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him,
and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?

06:005:014 And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I
now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and
said unto him, What saith my Lord unto his servant?

06:005:015 And the captain of the LORD's host said unto Joshua, Loose
thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy.
And Joshua did so.

06:006:001 Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of
Israel: none went out, and none came in.

06:006:002 And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine
hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.

06:006:003 And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go
round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.

06:006:004 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of
rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times,
and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.

06:006:005 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast
with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the
people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall
fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before
him.

06:006:006 And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto
them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven
trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD.

06:006:007 And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city,
and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the LORD.

06:006:008 And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people,
that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns passed
on before the LORD, and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the
covenant of the LORD followed them.

06:006:009 And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the
trumpets, and the rereward came after the ark, the priests going on, and
blowing with the trumpets.

06:006:010 And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not
shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word
proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye
shout.

06:006:011 So the ark of the LORD compassed the city, going about it
once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp.

06:006:012 And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up
the ark of the LORD.

06:006:013 And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns
before the ark of the LORD went on continually, and blew with the
trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rereward came
after the ark of the LORD, the priests going on, and blowing with the
trumpets.

06:006:014 And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned
into the camp: so they did six days.

06:006:015 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early
about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same
manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven
times.

06:006:016 And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests
blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the LORD
hath given you the city.

06:006:017 And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are
therein, to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that
are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.

06:006:018 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing,
lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing,
and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.

06:006:019 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron,
are consecrated unto the LORD: they shall come into the treasury of the
LORD.

06:006:020 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the
trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the
trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell
down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight
before him, and they took the city.

06:006:021 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man
and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of
the sword.

06:006:022 But Joshua had said unto the two men that had spied out the
country, Go into the harlot's house, and bring out thence the woman, and
all that she hath, as ye sware unto her.

06:006:023 And the young men that were spies went in, and brought out
Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that
she had; and they brought out all her kindred, and left them without the
camp of Israel.

06:006:024 And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein:
only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron,
they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD.

06:006:025 And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's
household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto
this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out
Jericho.

06:006:026 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the
man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he
shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest
son shall he set up the gates of it.

06:006:027 So the LORD was with Joshua; and his fame was noised
throughout all the country.

06:007:001 But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the
accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son
of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the
anger of the LORD was kindled against the children of Israel.

06:007:002 And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is beside
Bethaven, on the east of Bethel, and spake unto them, saying, Go up and
view the country. And the men went up and viewed Ai.

06:007:003 And they returned to Joshua, and said unto him, Let not all
the people go up; but let about two or three thousand men go up and
smite Ai; and make not all the people to labour thither; for they are
but few.

06:007:004 So there went up thither of the people about three thousand
men: and they fled before the men of Ai.

06:007:005 And the men of Ai smote of them about thirty and six men: for
they chased them from before the gate even unto Shebarim, and smote them
in the going down: wherefore the hearts of the people melted, and became
as water.

06:007:006 And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his
face before the ark of the LORD until the eventide, he and the elders of
Israel, and put dust upon their heads.

06:007:007 And Joshua said, Alas, O LORD God, wherefore hast thou at all
brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the
Amorites, to destroy us? would to God we had been content, and dwelt on
the other side Jordan!

06:007:008 O LORD, what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs
before their enemies!

06:007:009 For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall
hear of it, and shall environ us round, and cut off our name from the
earth: and what wilt thou do unto thy great name?

06:007:010 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest
thou thus upon thy face?

06:007:011 Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my
covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the
accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have
put it even among their own stuff.

06:007:012 Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their
enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were
accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the
accursed from among you.

06:007:013 Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against
to morrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed
thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine
enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.

06:007:014 In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to
your tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which the LORD taketh shall
come according to the families thereof; and the family which the LORD
shall take shall come by households; and the household which the LORD
shall take shall come man by man.

06:007:015 And it shall be, that he that is taken with the accursed
thing shall be burnt with fire, he and all that he hath: because he hath
transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he hath wrought folly
in Israel.

06:007:016 So Joshua rose up early in the morning, and brought Israel by
their tribes; and the tribe of Judah was taken:

06:007:017 And he brought the family of Judah; and he took the family of
the Zarhites: and he brought the family of the Zarhites man by man; and
Zabdi was taken:

06:007:018 And he brought his household man by man; and Achan, the son
of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was
taken.

06:007:019 And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory
to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now
what thou hast done; hide it not from me.

06:007:020 And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned
against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done:

06:007:021 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and
two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels
weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in
the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.

06:007:022 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and,
behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it.

06:007:023 And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought
them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out
before the LORD.

06:007:024 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of
Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his
sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and
his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of
Achor.

06:007:025 And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall
trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned
them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.

06:007:026 And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this
day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the
name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day.

06:008:001 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou
dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up to Ai:
see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his
city, and his land:

06:008:002 And thou shalt do to Ai and her king as thou didst unto
Jericho and her king: only the spoil thereof, and the cattle thereof,
shall ye take for a prey unto yourselves: lay thee an ambush for the
city behind it.

06:008:003 So Joshua arose, and all the people of war, to go up against
Ai: and Joshua chose out thirty thousand mighty men of valour, and sent
them away by night.

06:008:004 And he commanded them, saying, Behold, ye shall lie in wait
against the city, even behind the city: go not very far from the city,
but be ye all ready:

06:008:005 And I, and all the people that are with me, will approach
unto the city: and it shall come to pass, when they come out against us,
as at the first, that we will flee before them,

06:008:006 (For they will come out after us) till we have drawn them
from the city; for they will say, They flee before us, as at the first:
therefore we will flee before them.

06:008:007 Then ye shall rise up from the ambush, and seize upon the
city: for the LORD your God will deliver it into your hand.

06:008:008 And it shall be, when ye have taken the city, that ye shall
set the city on fire: according to the commandment of the LORD shall ye
do. See, I have commanded you.

06:008:009 Joshua therefore sent them forth: and they went to lie in
ambush, and abode between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of Ai: but
Joshua lodged that night among the people.

06:008:010 And Joshua rose up early in the morning, and numbered the
people, and went up, he and the elders of Israel, before the people to
Ai.

06:008:011 And all the people, even the people of war that were with
him, went up, and drew nigh, and came before the city, and pitched on
the north side of Ai: now there was a valley between them and Ai.

06:008:012 And he took about five thousand men, and set them to lie in
ambush between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city.

06:008:013 And when they had set the people, even all the host that was
on the north of the city, and their liers in wait on the west of the
city, Joshua went that night into the midst of the valley.

06:008:014 And it came to pass, when the king of Ai saw it, that they
hasted and rose up early, and the men of the city went out against
Israel to battle, he and all his people, at a time appointed, before the
plain; but he wist not that there were liers in ambush against him
behind the city.

06:008:015 And Joshua and all Israel made as if they were beaten before
them, and fled by the way of the wilderness.

06:008:016 And all the people that were in Ai were called together to
pursue after them: and they pursued after Joshua, and were drawn away
from the city.

06:008:017 And there was not a man left in Ai or Bethel, that went not
out after Israel: and they left the city open, and pursued after Israel.

06:008:018 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Stretch out the spear that is
in thy hand toward Ai; for I will give it into thine hand. And Joshua
stretched out the spear that he had in his hand toward the city.

06:008:019 And the ambush arose quickly out of their place, and they ran
as soon as he had stretched out his hand: and they entered into the
city, and took it, and hasted and set the city on fire.

06:008:020 And when the men of Ai looked behind them, they saw, and,
behold, the smoke of the city ascended up to heaven, and they had no
power to flee this way or that way: and the people that fled to the
wilderness turned back upon the pursuers.

06:008:021 And when Joshua and all Israel saw that the ambush had taken
the city, and that the smoke of the city ascended, then they turned
again, and slew the men of Ai.

06:008:022 And the other issued out of the city against them; so they
were in the midst of Israel, some on this side, and some on that side:
and they smote them, so that they let none of them remain or escape.

06:008:023 And the king of Ai they took alive, and brought him to
Joshua.

06:008:024 And it came to pass, when Israel had made an end of slaying
all the inhabitants of Ai in the field, in the wilderness wherein they
chased them, and when they were all fallen on the edge of the sword,
until they were consumed, that all the Israelites returned unto Ai, and
smote it with the edge of the sword.

06:008:025 And so it was, that all that fell that day, both of men and
women, were twelve thousand, even all the men of Ai.

06:008:026 For Joshua drew not his hand back, wherewith he stretched out
the spear, until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai.

06:008:027 Only the cattle and the spoil of that city Israel took for a
prey unto themselves, according unto the word of the LORD which he
commanded Joshua.

06:008:028 And Joshua burnt Ai, and made it an heap for ever, even a
desolation unto this day.

06:008:029 And the king of Ai he hanged on a tree until eventide: and as
soon as the sun was down, Joshua commanded that they should take his
carcase down from the tree, and cast it at the entering of the gate of
the city, and raise thereon a great heap of stones, that remaineth unto
this day.

06:008:030 Then Joshua built an altar unto the LORD God of Israel in
mount Ebal,

06:008:031 As Moses the servant of the LORD commanded the children of
Israel, as it is written in the book of the law of Moses, an altar of
whole stones, over which no man hath lift up any iron: and they offered
thereon burnt offerings unto the LORD, and sacrificed peace offerings.

06:008:032 And he wrote there upon the stones a copy of the law of
Moses, which he wrote in the presence of the children of Israel.

06:008:033 And all Israel, and their elders, and officers, and their
judges, stood on this side the ark and on that side before the priests
the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, as well the
stranger, as he that was born among them; half of them over against
mount Gerizim, and half of them over against mount Ebal; as Moses the
servant of the LORD had commanded before, that they should bless the
people of Israel.

06:008:034 And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings
and cursings, according to all that is written in the book of the law.

06:008:035 There was not a word of all that Moses commanded, which
Joshua read not before all the congregation of Israel, with the women,
and the little ones, and the strangers that were conversant among them.

06:009:001 And it came to pass, when all the kings which were on this
side Jordan, in the hills, and in the valleys, and in all the coasts of
the great sea over against Lebanon, the Hittite, and the Amorite, the
Canaanite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, heard thereof;

06:009:002 That they gathered themselves together, to fight with Joshua
and with Israel, with one accord.

06:009:003 And when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done
unto Jericho and to Ai,

06:009:004 They did work wilily, and went and made as if they had been
ambassadors, and took old sacks upon their asses, and wine bottles, old,
and rent, and bound up;

06:009:005 And old shoes and clouted upon their feet, and old garments
upon them; and all the bread of their provision was dry and mouldy.

06:009:006 And they went to Joshua unto the camp at Gilgal, and said
unto him, and to the men of Israel, We be come from a far country: now
therefore make ye a league with us.

06:009:007 And the men of Israel said unto the Hivites, Peradventure ye
dwell among us; and how shall we make a league with you?

06:009:008 And they said unto Joshua, We are thy servants. And Joshua
said unto them, Who are ye? and from whence come ye?

06:009:009 And they said unto him, From a very far country thy servants
are come because of the name of the LORD thy God: for we have heard the
fame of him, and all that he did in Egypt,

06:009:010 And all that he did to the two kings of the Amorites, that
were beyond Jordan, to Sihon king of Heshbon, and to Og king of Bashan,
which was at Ashtaroth.

06:009:011 Wherefore our elders and all the inhabitants of our country
spake to us, saying, Take victuals with you for the journey, and go to
meet them, and say unto them, We are your servants: therefore now make
ye a league with us.

06:009:012 This our bread we took hot for our provision out of our
houses on the day we came forth to go unto you; but now, behold, it is
dry, and it is mouldy:

06:009:013 And these bottles of wine, which we filled, were new; and,
behold, they be rent: and these our garments and our shoes are become
old by reason of the very long journey.

06:009:014 And the men took of their victuals, and asked not counsel at
the mouth of the LORD.

06:009:015 And Joshua made peace with them, and made a league with them,
to let them live: and the princes of the congregation sware unto them.

06:009:016 And it came to pass at the end of three days after they had
made a league with them, that they heard that they were their
neighbours, and that they dwelt among them.

06:009:017 And the children of Israel journeyed, and came unto their
cities on the third day. Now their cities were Gibeon, and Chephirah,
and Beeroth, and Kirjathjearim.

06:009:018 And the children of Israel smote them not, because the
princes of the congregation had sworn unto them by the LORD God of
Israel. And all the congregation murmured against the princes.

06:009:019 But all the princes said unto all the congregation, We have
sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel: now therefore we may not
touch them.

06:009:020 This we will do to them; we will even let them live, lest
wrath be upon us, because of the oath which we sware unto them.

06:009:021 And the princes said unto them, Let them live; but let them
be hewers of wood and drawers of water unto all the congregation; as the
princes had promised them.

06:009:022 And Joshua called for them, and he spake unto them, saying,
Wherefore have ye beguiled us, saying, We are very far from you; when ye
dwell among us?

06:009:023 Now therefore ye are cursed, and there shall none of you be
freed from being bondmen, and hewers of wood and drawers of water for
the house of my God.

06:009:024 And they answered Joshua, and said, Because it was certainly
told thy servants, how that the LORD thy God commanded his servant Moses
to give you all the land, and to destroy all the inhabitants of the land
from before you, therefore we were sore afraid of our lives because of
you, and have done this thing.

06:009:025 And now, behold, we are in thine hand: as it seemeth good and
right unto thee to do unto us, do.

06:009:026 And so did he unto them, and delivered them out of the hand
of the children of Israel, that they slew them not.

06:009:027 And Joshua made them that day hewers of wood and drawers of
water for the congregation, and for the altar of the LORD, even unto
this day, in the place which he should choose.

06:010:001 Now it came to pass, when Adonizedec king of Jerusalem had
heard how Joshua had taken Ai, and had utterly destroyed it; as he had
done to Jericho and her king, so he had done to Ai and her king; and how
the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel, and were among
them;

06:010:002 That they feared greatly, because Gibeon was a great city, as
one of the royal cities, and because it was greater than Ai, and all the
men thereof were mighty.

06:010:003 Wherefore Adonizedec king of Jerusalem, sent unto Hoham king
of Hebron, and unto Piram king of Jarmuth, and unto Japhia king of
Lachish, and unto Debir king of Eglon, saying,

06:010:004 Come up unto me, and help me, that we may smite Gibeon: for
it hath made peace with Joshua and with the children of Israel.

06:010:005 Therefore the five kings of the Amorites, the king of
Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish,
the king of Eglon, gathered themselves together, and went up, they and
all their hosts, and encamped before Gibeon, and made war against it.

06:010:006 And the men of Gibeon sent unto Joshua to the camp to Gilgal,
saying, Slack not thy hand from thy servants; come up to us quickly, and
save us, and help us: for all the kings of the Amorites that dwell in
the mountains are gathered together against us.

06:010:007 So Joshua ascended from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war
with him, and all the mighty men of valour.

06:010:008 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have
delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand
before thee.

06:010:009 Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from
Gilgal all night.

06:010:010 And the LORD discomfited them before Israel, and slew them
with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that
goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah.

06:010:011 And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and
were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great
stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more
which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew
with the sword.

06:010:012 Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD
delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in
the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon,
in the valley of Ajalon.

06:010:013 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the
people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in
the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and
hasted not to go down about a whole day.

06:010:014 And there was no day like that before it or after it, that
the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for
Israel.

06:010:015 And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp
to Gilgal.

06:010:016 But these five kings fled, and hid themselves in a cave at
Makkedah.

06:010:017 And it was told Joshua, saying, The five kings are found hid
in a cave at Makkedah.

06:010:018 And Joshua said, Roll great stones upon the mouth of the
cave, and set men by it for to keep them:

06:010:019 And stay ye not, but pursue after your enemies, and smite the
hindmost of them; suffer them not to enter into their cities: for the
LORD your God hath delivered them into your hand.

06:010:020 And it came to pass, when Joshua and the children of Israel
had made an end of slaying them with a very great slaughter, till they
were consumed, that the rest which remained of them entered into fenced
cities.

06:010:021 And all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah
in peace: none moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel.

06:010:022 Then said Joshua, Open the mouth of the cave, and bring out
those five kings unto me out of the cave.

06:010:023 And they did so, and brought forth those five kings unto him
out of the cave, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of
Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon.

06:010:024 And it came to pass, when they brought out those kings unto
Joshua, that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said unto the
captains of the men of war which went with him, Come near, put your feet
upon the necks of these kings. And they came near, and put their feet
upon the necks of them.

06:010:025 And Joshua said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed, be
strong and of good courage: for thus shall the LORD do to all your
enemies against whom ye fight.

06:010:026 And afterward Joshua smote them, and slew them, and hanged
them on five trees: and they were hanging upon the trees until the
evening.

06:010:027 And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun,
that Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast
them into the cave wherein they had been hid, and laid great stones in
the cave's mouth, which remain until this very day.

06:010:028 And that day Joshua took Makkedah, and smote it with the edge
of the sword, and the king thereof he utterly destroyed, them, and all
the souls that were therein; he let none remain: and he did to the king
of Makkedah as he did unto the king of Jericho.

06:010:029 Then Joshua passed from Makkedah, and all Israel with him,
unto Libnah, and fought against Libnah:

06:010:030 And the LORD delivered it also, and the king thereof, into
the hand of Israel; and he smote it with the edge of the sword, and all
the souls that were therein; he let none remain in it; but did unto the
king thereof as he did unto the king of Jericho.

06:010:031 And Joshua passed from Libnah, and all Israel with him, unto
Lachish, and encamped against it, and fought against it:

06:010:032 And the LORD delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel, which
took it on the second day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and
all the souls that were therein, according to all that he had done to
Libnah.

06:010:033 Then Horam king of Gezer came up to help Lachish; and Joshua
smote him and his people, until he had left him none remaining.

06:010:034 And from Lachish Joshua passed unto Eglon, and all Israel
with him; and they encamped against it, and fought against it:

06:010:035 And they took it on that day, and smote it with the edge of
the sword, and all the souls that were therein he utterly destroyed that
day, according to all that he had done to Lachish.

06:010:036 And Joshua went up from Eglon, and all Israel with him, unto
Hebron; and they fought against it:

06:010:037 And they took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword,
and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof, and all the souls that
were therein; he left none remaining, according to all that he had done
to Eglon; but destroyed it utterly, and all the souls that were therein.

06:010:038 And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to Debir; and
fought against it:

06:010:039 And he took it, and the king thereof, and all the cities
thereof; and they smote them with the edge of the sword, and utterly
destroyed all the souls that were therein; he left none remaining: as he
had done to Hebron, so he did to Debir, and to the king thereof; as he
had done also to Libnah, and to her king.

06:010:040 So Joshua smote all the country of the hills, and of the
south, and of the vale, and of the springs, and all their kings: he left
none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the LORD God
of Israel commanded.

06:010:041 And Joshua smote them from Kadeshbarnea even unto Gaza, and
all the country of Goshen, even unto Gibeon.

06:010:042 And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one
time, because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel.

06:010:043 And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp
to Gilgal.

06:011:001 And it came to pass, when Jabin king of Hazor had heard those
things, that he sent to Jobab king of Madon, and to the king of Shimron,
and to the king of Achshaph,

06:011:002 And to the kings that were on the north of the mountains, and
of the plains south of Chinneroth, and in the valley, and in the borders
of Dor on the west,

06:011:003 And to the Canaanite on the east and on the west, and to the
Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Jebusite in the
mountains, and to the Hivite under Hermon in the land of Mizpeh.

06:011:004 And they went out, they and all their hosts with them, much
people, even as the sand that is upon the sea shore in multitude, with
horses and chariots very many.

06:011:005 And when all these kings were met together, they came and
pitched together at the waters of Merom, to fight against Israel.

06:011:006 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of them:
for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before
Israel: thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their chariots with
fire.

06:011:007 So Joshua came, and all the people of war with him, against
them by the waters of Merom suddenly; and they fell upon them.

06:011:008 And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who
smote them, and chased them unto great Zidon, and unto Misrephothmaim,
and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and they smote them, until they
left them none remaining.

06:011:009 And Joshua did unto them as the LORD bade him: he houghed
their horses, and burnt their chariots with fire.

06:011:010 And Joshua at that time turned back, and took Hazor, and
smote the king thereof with the sword: for Hazor beforetime was the head
of all those kingdoms.

06:011:011 And they smote all the souls that were therein with the edge
of the sword, utterly destroying them: there was not any left to
breathe: and he burnt Hazor with fire.

06:011:012 And all the cities of those kings, and all the kings of them,
did Joshua take, and smote them with the edge of the sword, and he
utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the LORD commanded.

06:011:013 But as for the cities that stood still in their strength,
Israel burned none of them, save Hazor only; that did Joshua burn.

06:011:014 And all the spoil of these cities, and the cattle, the
children of Israel took for a prey unto themselves; but every man they
smote with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them, neither
left they any to breathe.

06:011:015 As the LORD commanded Moses his servant, so did Moses command
Joshua, and so did Joshua; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD
commanded Moses.

06:011:016 So Joshua took all that land, the hills, and all the south
country, and all the land of Goshen, and the valley, and the plain, and
the mountain of Israel, and the valley of the same;

06:011:017 Even from the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir, even unto
Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon under mount Hermon: and all their kings
he took, and smote them, and slew them.

06:011:018 Joshua made war a long time with all those kings.

06:011:019 There was not a city that made peace with the children of
Israel, save the Hivites the inhabitants of Gibeon: all other they took
in battle.

06:011:020 For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they
should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them
utterly, and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy
them, as the LORD commanded Moses.

06:011:021 And at that time came Joshua, and cut off the Anakims from
the mountains, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from all the
mountains of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel: Joshua
destroyed them utterly with their cities.

06:011:022 There was none of the Anakims left in the land of the
children of Israel: only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, there
remained.

06:011:023 So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD
said unto Moses; and Joshua gave it for an inheritance unto Israel
according to their divisions by their tribes. And the land rested from
war.

06:012:001 Now these are the kings of the land, which the children of
Israel smote, and possessed their land on the other side Jordan toward
the rising of the sun, from the river Arnon unto mount Hermon, and all
the plain on the east:

06:012:002 Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, and ruled
from Aroer, which is upon the bank of the river Arnon, and from the
middle of the river, and from half Gilead, even unto the river Jabbok,
which is the border of the children of Ammon;

06:012:003 And from the plain to the sea of Chinneroth on the east, and
unto the sea of the plain, even the salt sea on the east, the way to
Bethjeshimoth; and from the south, under Ashdothpisgah:

06:012:004 And the coast of Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant
of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,

06:012:005 And reigned in mount Hermon, and in Salcah, and in all
Bashan, unto the border of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and half
Gilead, the border of Sihon king of Heshbon.

06:012:006 Them did Moses the servant of the LORD and the children of
Israel smite: and Moses the servant of the LORD gave it for a possession
unto the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh.

06:012:007 And these are the kings of the country which Joshua and the
children of Israel smote on this side Jordan on the west, from Baalgad
in the valley of Lebanon even unto the mount Halak, that goeth up to
Seir; which Joshua gave unto the tribes of Israel for a possession
according to their divisions;

06:012:008 In the mountains, and in the valleys, and in the plains, and
in the springs, and in the wilderness, and in the south country; the
Hittites, the Amorites, and the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites,
and the Jebusites:

06:012:009 The king of Jericho, one; the king of Ai, which is beside
Bethel, one;

06:012:010 The king of Jerusalem, one; the king of Hebron, one;

06:012:011 The king of Jarmuth, one; the king of Lachish, one;

06:012:012 The king of Eglon, one; the king of Gezer, one;

06:012:013 The king of Debir, one; the king of Geder, one;

06:012:014 The king of Hormah, one; the king of Arad, one;

06:012:015 The king of Libnah, one; the king of Adullam, one;

06:012:016 The king of Makkedah, one; the king of Bethel, one;

06:012:017 The king of Tappuah, one; the king of Hepher, one;

06:012:018 The king of Aphek, one; the king of Lasharon, one;

06:012:019 The king of Madon, one; the king of Hazor, one;

06:012:020 The king of Shimronmeron, one; the king of Achshaph, one;

06:012:021 The king of Taanach, one; the king of Megiddo, one;

06:012:022 The king of Kedesh, one; the king of Jokneam of Carmel, one;

06:012:023 The king of Dor in the coast of Dor, one; the king of the
nations of Gilgal, one;

06:012:024 The king of Tirzah, one: all the kings thirty and one.

06:013:001 Now Joshua was old and stricken in years; and the LORD said
unto him, Thou art old and stricken in years, and there remaineth yet
very much land to be possessed.

06:013:002 This is the land that yet remaineth: all the borders of the
Philistines, and all Geshuri,

06:013:003 From Sihor, which is before Egypt, even unto the borders of
Ekron northward, which is counted to the Canaanite: five lords of the
Philistines; the Gazathites, and the Ashdothites, the Eshkalonites, the
Gittites, and the Ekronites; also the Avites:

06:013:004 From the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah
that is beside the Sidonians unto Aphek, to the borders of the Amorites:

06:013:005 And the land of the Giblites, and all Lebanon, toward the
sunrising, from Baalgad under mount Hermon unto the entering into
Hamath.

06:013:006 All the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon unto
Misrephothmaim, and all the Sidonians, them will I drive out from before
the children of Israel: only divide thou it by lot unto the Israelites
for an inheritance, as I have commanded thee.

06:013:007 Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance unto the
nine tribes, and the half tribe of Manasseh,

06:013:008 With whom the Reubenites and the Gadites have received their
inheritance, which Moses gave them, beyond Jordan eastward, even as
Moses the servant of the LORD gave them;

06:013:009 From Aroer, that is upon the bank of the river Arnon, and the
city that is in the midst of the river, and all the plain of Medeba unto
Dibon;

06:013:010 And all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, which
reigned in Heshbon, unto the border of the children of Ammon;

06:013:011 And Gilead, and the border of the Geshurites and
Maachathites, and all mount Hermon, and all Bashan unto Salcah;

06:013:012 All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which reigned in Ashtaroth
and in Edrei, who remained of the remnant of the giants: for these did
Moses smite, and cast them out.

06:013:013 Nevertheless the children of Israel expelled not the
Geshurites, nor the Maachathites: but the Geshurites and the
Maachathites dwell among the Israelites until this day.

06:013:014 Only unto the tribes of Levi he gave none inheritance; the
sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance,
as he said unto them.

06:013:015 And Moses gave unto the tribe of the children of Reuben
inheritance according to their families.

06:013:016 And their coast was from Aroer, that is on the bank of the
river Arnon, and the city that is in the midst of the river, and all the
plain by Medeba;

06:013:017 Heshbon, and all her cities that are in the plain; Dibon, and
Bamothbaal, and Bethbaalmeon,

06:013:018 And Jahaza, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath,

06:013:019 And Kirjathaim, and Sibmah, and Zarethshahar in the mount of
the valley,

06:013:020 And Bethpeor, and Ashdothpisgah, and Bethjeshimoth,

06:013:021 And all the cities of the plain, and all the kingdom of Sihon
king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon, whom Moses smote with
the princes of Midian, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, which
were dukes of Sihon, dwelling in the country.

06:013:022 Balaam also the son of Beor, the soothsayer, did the children
of Israel slay with the sword among them that were slain by them.

06:013:023 And the border of the children of Reuben was Jordan, and the
border thereof. This was the inheritance of the children of Reuben after
their families, the cities and the villages thereof.

06:013:024 And Moses gave inheritance unto the tribe of Gad, even unto
the children of Gad according to their families.

06:013:025 And their coast was Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and
half the land of the children of Ammon, unto Aroer that is before
Rabbah;

06:013:026 And from Heshbon unto Ramathmizpeh, and Betonim; and from
Mahanaim unto the border of Debir;

06:013:027 And in the valley, Betharam, and Bethnimrah, and Succoth, and
Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon, Jordan and his
border, even unto the edge of the sea of Chinnereth on the other side
Jordan eastward.

06:013:028 This is the inheritance of the children of Gad after their
families, the cities, and their villages.

06:013:029 And Moses gave inheritance unto the half tribe of Manasseh:
and this was the possession of the half tribe of the children of
Manasseh by their families.

06:013:030 And their coast was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the
kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the towns of Jair, which are in
Bashan, threescore cities:

06:013:031 And half Gilead, and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities of the
kingdom of Og in Bashan, were pertaining unto the children of Machir the
son of Manasseh, even to the one half of the children of Machir by their
families.

06:013:032 These are the countries which Moses did distribute for
inheritance in the plains of Moab, on the other side Jordan, by Jericho,
eastward.

06:013:033 But unto the tribe of Levi Moses gave not any inheritance:
the LORD God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said unto them.

06:014:001 And these are the countries which the children of Israel
inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua
the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the
children of Israel, distributed for inheritance to them.

06:014:002 By lot was their inheritance, as the LORD commanded by the
hand of Moses, for the nine tribes, and for the half tribe.

06:014:003 For Moses had given the inheritance of two tribes and an half
tribe on the other side Jordan: but unto the Levites he gave none
inheritance among them.

06:014:004 For the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and
Ephraim: therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the land, save
cities to dwell in, with their suburbs for their cattle and for their
substance.

06:014:005 As the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did,
and they divided the land.

06:014:006 Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and
Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the
thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and
thee in Kadeshbarnea.

06:014:007 Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent
me from Kadeshbarnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again
as it was in mine heart.

06:014:008 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart
of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God.

06:014:009 And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon
thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children's for
ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God.

06:014:010 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said,
these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto
Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now,
lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old.

06:014:011 As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses
sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war,
both to go out, and to come in.

06:014:012 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake
in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there,
and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be
with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.

06:014:013 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of
Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance.

06:014:014 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of
Jephunneh the Kenezite unto this day, because that he wholly followed
the LORD God of Israel.

06:014:015 And the name of Hebron before was Kirjatharba; which Arba was
a great man among the Anakims. And the land had rest from war.

06:015:001 This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah
by their families; even to the border of Edom the wilderness of Zin
southward was the uttermost part of the south coast.

06:015:002 And their south border was from the shore of the salt sea,
from the bay that looketh southward:

06:015:003 And it went out to the south side to Maalehacrabbim, and
passed along to Zin, and ascended up on the south side unto
Kadeshbarnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar, and
fetched a compass to Karkaa:

06:015:004 From thence it passed toward Azmon, and went out unto the
river of Egypt; and the goings out of that coast were at the sea: this
shall be your south coast.

06:015:005 And the east border was the salt sea, even unto the end of
Jordan. And their border in the north quarter was from the bay of the
sea at the uttermost part of Jordan:

06:015:006 And the border went up to Bethhogla, and passed along by the
north of Betharabah; and the border went up to the stone of Bohan the
son of Reuben:

06:015:007 And the border went up toward Debir from the valley of Achor,
and so northward, looking toward Gilgal, that is before the going up to
Adummim, which is on the south side of the river: and the border passed
toward the waters of Enshemesh, and the goings out thereof were at
Enrogel:

06:015:008 And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom
unto the south side of the Jebusite; the same is Jerusalem: and the
border went up to the top of the mountain that lieth before the valley
of Hinnom westward, which is at the end of the valley of the giants
northward:

06:015:009 And the border was drawn from the top of the hill unto the
fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities of mount
Ephron; and the border was drawn to Baalah, which is Kirjathjearim:

06:015:010 And the border compassed from Baalah westward unto mount
Seir, and passed along unto the side of mount Jearim, which is Chesalon,
on the north side, and went down to Bethshemesh, and passed on to
Timnah:

06:015:011 And the border went out unto the side of Ekron northward: and
the border was drawn to Shicron, and passed along to mount Baalah, and
went out unto Jabneel; and the goings out of the border were at the sea.

06:015:012 And the west border was to the great sea, and the coast
thereof. This is the coast of the children of Judah round about
according to their families.

06:015:013 And unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a part among the
children of Judah, according to the commandment of the LORD to Joshua,
even the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city is Hebron.

06:015:014 And Caleb drove thence the three sons of Anak, Sheshai, and
Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak.

06:015:015 And he went up thence to the inhabitants of Debir: and the
name of Debir before was Kirjathsepher.

06:015:016 And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it,
to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife.

06:015:017 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it:
and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.

06:015:018 And it came to pass, as she came unto him, that she moved him
to ask of her father a field: and she lighted off her ass; and Caleb
said unto her, What wouldest thou?

06:015:019 Who answered, Give me a blessing; for thou hast given me a
south land; give me also springs of water. And he gave her the upper
springs, and the nether springs.

06:015:020 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah
according to their families.

06:015:021 And the uttermost cities of the tribe of the children of
Judah toward the coast of Edom southward were Kabzeel, and Eder, and
Jagur,

06:015:022 And Kinah, and Dimonah, and Adadah,

06:015:023 And Kedesh, and Hazor, and Ithnan,

06:015:024 Ziph, and Telem, and Bealoth,

06:015:025 And Hazor, Hadattah, and Kerioth, and Hezron, which is Hazor,

06:015:026 Amam, and Shema, and Moladah,

06:015:027 And Hazargaddah, and Heshmon, and Bethpalet,

06:015:028 And Hazarshual, and Beersheba, and Bizjothjah,

06:015:029 Baalah, and Iim, and Azem,

06:015:030 And Eltolad, and Chesil, and Hormah,

06:015:031 And Ziklag, and Madmannah, and Sansannah,

06:015:032 And Lebaoth, and Shilhim, and Ain, and Rimmon: all the cities
are twenty and nine, with their villages:

06:015:033 And in the valley, Eshtaol, and Zoreah, and Ashnah,

06:015:034 And Zanoah, and Engannim, Tappuah, and Enam,

06:015:035 Jarmuth, and Adullam, Socoh, and Azekah,

06:015:036 And Sharaim, and Adithaim, and Gederah, and Gederothaim;
fourteen cities with their villages:

06:015:037 Zenan, and Hadashah, and Migdalgad,

06:015:038 And Dilean, and Mizpeh, and Joktheel,

06:015:039 Lachish, and Bozkath, and Eglon,

06:015:040 And Cabbon, and Lahmam, and Kithlish,

06:015:041 And Gederoth, Bethdagon, and Naamah, and Makkedah; sixteen
cities with their villages:

06:015:042 Libnah, and Ether, and Ashan,

06:015:043 And Jiphtah, and Ashnah, and Nezib,

06:015:044 And Keilah, and Achzib, and Mareshah; nine cities with their
villages:

06:015:045 Ekron, with her towns and her villages:

06:015:046 From Ekron even unto the sea, all that lay near Ashdod, with
their villages:

06:015:047 Ashdod with her towns and her villages, Gaza with her towns
and her villages, unto the river of Egypt, and the great sea, and the
border thereof:

06:015:048 And in the mountains, Shamir, and Jattir, and Socoh,

06:015:049 And Dannah, and Kirjathsannah, which is Debir,

06:015:050 And Anab, and Eshtemoh, and Anim,

06:015:051 And Goshen, and Holon, and Giloh; eleven cities with their
villages:

06:015:052 Arab, and Dumah, and Eshean,

06:015:053 And Janum, and Bethtappuah, and Aphekah,

06:015:054 And Humtah, and Kirjatharba, which is Hebron, and Zior; nine
cities with their villages:

06:015:055 Maon, Carmel, and Ziph, and Juttah,

06:015:056 And Jezreel, and Jokdeam, and Zanoah,

06:015:057 Cain, Gibeah, and Timnah; ten cities with their villages:

06:015:058 Halhul, Bethzur, and Gedor,

06:015:059 And Maarath, and Bethanoth, and Eltekon; six cities with
their villages:

06:015:060 Kirjathbaal, which is Kirjathjearim, and Rabbah; two cities
with their villages:

06:015:061 In the wilderness, Betharabah, Middin, and Secacah,

06:015:062 And Nibshan, and the city of Salt, and Engedi; six cities
with their villages.

06:015:063 As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the
children of Judah could not drive them out; but the Jebusites dwell with
the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day.

06:016:001 And the lot of the children of Joseph fell from Jordan by
Jericho, unto the water of Jericho on the east, to the wilderness that
goeth up from Jericho throughout mount Bethel,

06:016:002 And goeth out from Bethel to Luz, and passeth along unto the
borders of Archi to Ataroth,

06:016:003 And goeth down westward to the coast of Japhleti, unto the
coast of Bethhoron the nether, and to Gezer; and the goings out thereof
are at the sea.

06:016:004 So the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their
inheritance.

06:016:005 And the border of the children of Ephraim according to their
families was thus: even the border of their inheritance on the east side
was Atarothaddar, unto Bethhoron the upper;

06:016:006 And the border went out toward the sea to Michmethah on the
north side; and the border went about eastward unto Taanathshiloh, and
passed by it on the east to Janohah;

06:016:007 And it went down from Janohah to Ataroth, and to Naarath, and
came to Jericho, and went out at Jordan.

06:016:008 The border went out from Tappuah westward unto the river
Kanah; and the goings out thereof were at the sea. This is the
inheritance of the tribe of the children of Ephraim by their families.

06:016:009 And the separate cities for the children of Ephraim were
among the inheritance of the children of Manasseh, all the cities with
their villages.

06:016:010 And they drave not out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer:
but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites unto this day, and serve
under tribute.

06:017:001 There was also a lot for the tribe of Manasseh; for he was
the firstborn of Joseph; to wit, for Machir the firstborn of Manasseh,
the father of Gilead: because he was a man of war, therefore he had
Gilead and Bashan.

06:017:002 There was also a lot for the rest of the children of Manasseh
by their families; for the children of Abiezer, and for the children of
Helek, and for the children of Asriel, and for the children of Shechem,
and for the children of Hepher, and for the children of Shemida: these
were the male children of Manasseh the son of Joseph by their families.

06:017:003 But Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son
of Machir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons, but daughters: and these
are the names of his daughters, Mahlah, and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and
Tirzah.

06:017:004 And they came near before Eleazar the priest, and before
Joshua the son of Nun, and before the princes, saying, The LORD
commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brethren. Therefore
according to the commandment of the LORD he gave them an inheritance
among the brethren of their father.

06:017:005 And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, beside the land of
Gilead and Bashan, which were on the other side Jordan;

06:017:006 Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among
his sons: and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of Gilead.

06:017:007 And the coast of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethah, that
lieth before Shechem; and the border went along on the right hand unto
the inhabitants of Entappuah.

06:017:008 Now Manasseh had the land of Tappuah: but Tappuah on the
border of Manasseh belonged to the children of Ephraim;

06:017:009 And the coast descended unto the river Kanah, southward of
the river: these cities of Ephraim are among the cities of Manasseh: the
coast of Manasseh also was on the north side of the river, and the
outgoings of it were at the sea:

06:017:010 Southward it was Ephraim's, and northward it was Manasseh's,
and the sea is his border; and they met together in Asher on the north,
and in Issachar on the east.

06:017:011 And Manasseh had in Issachar and in Asher Bethshean and her
towns, and Ibleam and her towns, and the inhabitants of Dor and her
towns, and the inhabitants of Endor and her towns, and the inhabitants
of Taanach and her towns, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns,
even three countries.

06:017:012 Yet the children of Manasseh could not drive out the
inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that
land.

06:017:013 Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen
strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute, but did not utterly
drive them out.

06:017:014 And the children of Joseph spake unto Joshua, saying, Why
hast thou given me but one lot and one portion to inherit, seeing I am a
great people, forasmuch as the LORD hath blessed me hitherto?

06:017:015 And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get
thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land
of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for
thee.

06:017:016 And the children of Joseph said, The hill is not enough for
us: and all the Canaanites that dwell in the land of the valley have
chariots of iron, both they who are of Bethshean and her towns, and they
who are of the valley of Jezreel.

06:017:017 And Joshua spake unto the house of Joseph, even to Ephraim
and to Manasseh, saying, Thou art a great people, and hast great power:
thou shalt not have one lot only:

06:017:018 But the mountain shall be thine; for it is a wood, and thou
shalt cut it down: and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for thou
shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, and
though they be strong.

06:018:001 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel
assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the
congregation there. And the land was subdued before them.

06:018:002 And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes,
which had not yet received their inheritance.

06:018:003 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye
slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath
given you?

06:018:004 Give out from among you three men for each tribe: and I will
send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land, and describe it
according to the inheritance of them; and they shall come again to me.

06:018:005 And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall abide
in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide in
their coasts on the north.

06:018:006 Ye shall therefore describe the land into seven parts, and
bring the description hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here
before the LORD our God.

06:018:007 But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of
the LORD is their inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe
of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east,
which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.

06:018:008 And the men arose, and went away: and Joshua charged them
that went to describe the land, saying, Go and walk through the land,
and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here cast lots for you
before the LORD in Shiloh.

06:018:009 And the men went and passed through the land, and described
it by cities into seven parts in a book, and came again to Joshua to the
host at Shiloh.

06:018:010 And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and
there Joshua divided the land unto the children of Israel according to
their divisions.

06:018:011 And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up
according to their families: and the coast of their lot came forth
between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.

06:018:012 And their border on the north side was from Jordan; and the
border went up to the side of Jericho on the north side, and went up
through the mountains westward; and the goings out thereof were at the
wilderness of Bethaven.

06:018:013 And the border went over from thence toward Luz, to the side
of Luz, which is Bethel, southward; and the border descended to
Atarothadar, near the hill that lieth on the south side of the nether
Bethhoron.

06:018:014 And the border was drawn thence, and compassed the corner of
the sea southward, from the hill that lieth before Bethhoron southward;
and the goings out thereof were at Kirjathbaal, which is Kirjathjearim,
a city of the children of Judah: this was the west quarter.

06:018:015 And the south quarter was from the end of Kirjathjearim, and
the border went out on the west, and went out to the well of waters of
Nephtoah:

06:018:016 And the border came down to the end of the mountain that
lieth before the valley of the son of Hinnom, and which is in the valley
of the giants on the north, and descended to the valley of Hinnom, to
the side of Jebusi on the south, and descended to Enrogel,

06:018:017 And was drawn from the north, and went forth to Enshemesh,
and went forth toward Geliloth, which is over against the going up of
Adummim, and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben,

06:018:018 And passed along toward the side over against Arabah
northward, and went down unto Arabah:

06:018:019 And the border passed along to the side of Bethhoglah
northward: and the outgoings of the border were at the north bay of the
salt sea at the south end of Jordan: this was the south coast.

06:018:020 And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This was
the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the coasts thereof round
about, according to their families.

06:018:021 Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin
according to their families were Jericho, and Bethhoglah, and the valley
of Keziz,

06:018:022 And Betharabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel,

06:018:023 And Avim, and Pharah, and Ophrah,

06:018:024 And Chepharhaammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities with
their villages:

06:018:025 Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,

06:018:026 And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,

06:018:027 And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,

06:018:028 And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, which is Jerusalem, Gibeath,
and Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This is the
inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.

06:019:001 And the second lot came forth to Simeon, even for the tribe
of the children of Simeon according to their families: and their
inheritance was within the inheritance of the children of Judah.

06:019:002 And they had in their inheritance Beersheba, and Sheba, and
Moladah,

06:019:003 And Hazarshual, and Balah, and Azem,

06:019:004 And Eltolad, and Bethul, and Hormah,

06:019:005 And Ziklag, and Bethmarcaboth, and Hazarsusah,

06:019:006 And Bethlebaoth, and Sharuhen; thirteen cities and their
villages:

06:019:007 Ain, Remmon, and Ether, and Ashan; four cities and their
villages:

06:019:008 And all the villages that were round about these cities to
Baalathbeer, Ramath of the south. This is the inheritance of the tribe
of the children of Simeon according to their families.

06:019:009 Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the
inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of
Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their
inheritance within the inheritance of them.

06:019:010 And the third lot came up for the children of Zebulun
according to their families: and the border of their inheritance was
unto Sarid:

06:019:011 And their border went up toward the sea, and Maralah, and
reached to Dabbasheth, and reached to the river that is before Jokneam;

06:019:012 And turned from Sarid eastward toward the sunrising unto the
border of Chislothtabor, and then goeth out to Daberath, and goeth up to
Japhia,

06:019:013 And from thence passeth on along on the east to Gittahhepher,
to Ittahkazin, and goeth out to Remmonmethoar to Neah;

06:019:014 And the border compasseth it on the north side to Hannathon:
and the outgoings thereof are in the valley of Jiphthahel:

06:019:015 And Kattath, and Nahallal, and Shimron, and Idalah, and
Bethlehem: twelve cities with their villages.

06:019:016 This is the inheritance of the children of Zebulun according
to their families, these cities with their villages.

06:019:017 And the fourth lot came out to Issachar, for the children of
Issachar according to their families.

06:019:018 And their border was toward Jezreel, and Chesulloth, and
Shunem,

06:019:019 And Haphraim, and Shihon, and Anaharath,

06:019:020 And Rabbith, and Kishion, and Abez,

06:019:021 And Remeth, and Engannim, and Enhaddah, and Bethpazzez;

06:019:022 And the coast reacheth to Tabor, and Shahazimah, and
Bethshemesh; and the outgoings of their border were at Jordan: sixteen
cities with their villages.

06:019:023 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of
Issachar according to their families, the cities and their villages.

06:019:024 And the fifth lot came out for the tribe of the children of
Asher according to their families.

06:019:025 And their border was Helkath, and Hali, and Beten, and
Achshaph,

06:019:026 And Alammelech, and Amad, and Misheal; and reacheth to Carmel
westward, and to Shihorlibnath;

06:019:027 And turneth toward the sunrising to Bethdagon, and reacheth
to Zebulun, and to the valley of Jiphthahel toward the north side of
Bethemek, and Neiel, and goeth out to Cabul on the left hand,

06:019:028 And Hebron, and Rehob, and Hammon, and Kanah, even unto great
Zidon;

06:019:029 And then the coast turneth to Ramah, and to the strong city
Tyre; and the coast turneth to Hosah; and the outgoings thereof are at
the sea from the coast to Achzib:

06:019:030 Ummah also, and Aphek, and Rehob: twenty and two cities with
their villages.

06:019:031 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Asher
according to their families, these cities with their villages.

06:019:032 The sixth lot came out to the children of Naphtali, even for
the children of Naphtali according to their families.

06:019:033 And their coast was from Heleph, from Allon to Zaanannim, and
Adami, Nekeb, and Jabneel, unto Lakum; and the outgoings thereof were at
Jordan:

06:019:034 And then the coast turneth westward to Aznothtabor, and goeth
out from thence to Hukkok, and reacheth to Zebulun on the south side,
and reacheth to Asher on the west side, and to Judah upon Jordan toward
the sunrising.

06:019:035 And the fenced cities are Ziddim, Zer, and Hammath, Rakkath,
and Chinnereth,

06:019:036 And Adamah, and Ramah, and Hazor,

06:019:037 And Kedesh, and Edrei, and Enhazor,

06:019:038 And Iron, and Migdalel, Horem, and Bethanath, and
Bethshemesh; nineteen cities with their villages.

06:019:039 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of
Naphtali according to their families, the cities and their villages.

06:019:040 And the seventh lot came out for the tribe of the children of
Dan according to their families.

06:019:041 And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol,
and Irshemesh,

06:019:042 And Shaalabbin, and Ajalon, and Jethlah,

06:019:043 And Elon, and Thimnathah, and Ekron,

06:019:044 And Eltekeh, and Gibbethon, and Baalath,

06:019:045 And Jehud, and Beneberak, and Gathrimmon,

06:019:046 And Mejarkon, and Rakkon, with the border before Japho.

06:019:047 And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for
them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and
took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and
dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their
father.

06:019:048 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan
according to their families, these cities with their villages.

06:019:049 When they had made an end of dividing the land for
inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance
to Joshua the son of Nun among them:

06:019:050 According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city
which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the
city, and dwelt therein.

06:019:051 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and
Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the
children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before
the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they
made an end of dividing the country.

06:020:001 The LORD also spake unto Joshua, saying,

06:020:002 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, Appoint out for you
cities of refuge, whereof I spake unto you by the hand of Moses:

06:020:003 That the slayer that killeth any person unawares and
unwittingly may flee thither: and they shall be your refuge from the
avenger of blood.

06:020:004 And when he that doth flee unto one of those cities shall
stand at the entering of the gate of the city, and shall declare his
cause in the ears of the elders of that city, they shall take him into
the city unto them, and give him a place, that he may dwell among them.

06:020:005 And if the avenger of blood pursue after him, then they shall
not deliver the slayer up into his hand; because he smote his neighbour
unwittingly, and hated him not beforetime.

06:020:006 And he shall dwell in that city, until he stand before the
congregation for judgment, and until the death of the high priest that
shall be in those days: then shall the slayer return, and come unto his
own city, and unto his own house, unto the city from whence he fled.

06:020:007 And they appointed Kedesh in Galilee in mount Naphtali, and
Shechem in mount Ephraim, and Kirjatharba, which is Hebron, in the
mountain of Judah.

06:020:008 And on the other side Jordan by Jericho eastward, they
assigned Bezer in the wilderness upon the plain out of the tribe of
Reuben, and Ramoth in Gilead out of the tribe of Gad, and Golan in
Bashan out of the tribe of Manasseh.

06:020:009 These were the cities appointed for all the children of
Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them, that whosoever
killeth any person at unawares might flee thither, and not die by the
hand of the avenger of blood, until he stood before the congregation.

06:021:001 Then came near the heads of the fathers of the Levites unto
Eleazar the priest, and unto Joshua the son of Nun, and unto the heads
of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel;

06:021:002 And they spake unto them at Shiloh in the land of Canaan,
saying, The LORD commanded by the hand of Moses to give us cities to
dwell in, with the suburbs thereof for our cattle.

06:021:003 And the children of Israel gave unto the Levites out of their
inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and their
suburbs.

06:021:004 And the lot came out for the families of the Kohathites: and
the children of Aaron the priest, which were of the Levites, had by lot
out of the tribe of Judah, and out of the tribe of Simeon, and out of
the tribe of Benjamin, thirteen cities.

06:021:005 And the rest of the children of Kohath had by lot out of the
families of the tribe of Ephraim, and out of the tribe of Dan, and out
of the half tribe of Manasseh, ten cities.

06:021:006 And the children of Gershon had by lot out of the families of
the tribe of Issachar, and out of the tribe of Asher, and out of the
tribe of Naphtali, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh in Bashan,
thirteen cities.

06:021:007 The children of Merari by their families had out of the tribe
of Reuben, and out of the tribe of Gad, and out of the tribe of Zebulun,
twelve cities.

06:021:008 And the children of Israel gave by lot unto the Levites these
cities with their suburbs, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

06:021:009 And they gave out of the tribe of the children of Judah, and
out of the tribe of the children of Simeon, these cities which are here
mentioned by name.

06:021:010 Which the children of Aaron, being of the families of the
Kohathites, who were of the children of Levi, had: for theirs was the
first lot.

06:021:011 And they gave them the city of Arba the father of Anak, which
city is Hebron, in the hill country of Judah, with the suburbs thereof
round about it.

06:021:012 But the fields of the city, and the villages thereof, gave
they to Caleb the son of Jephunneh for his possession.

06:021:013 Thus they gave to the children of Aaron the priest Hebron
with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Libnah with
her suburbs,

06:021:014 And Jattir with her suburbs, and Eshtemoa with her suburbs,

06:021:015 And Holon with her suburbs, and Debir with her suburbs,

06:021:016 And Ain with her suburbs, and Juttah with her suburbs, and
Bethshemesh with her suburbs; nine cities out of those two tribes.

06:021:017 And out of the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon with her suburbs,
Geba with her suburbs,

06:021:018 Anathoth with her suburbs, and Almon with her suburbs; four
cities.

06:021:019 All the cities of the children of Aaron, the priests, were
thirteen cities with their suburbs.

06:021:020 And the families of the children of Kohath, the Levites which
remained of the children of Kohath, even they had the cities of their
lot out of the tribe of Ephraim.

06:021:021 For they gave them Shechem with her suburbs in mount Ephraim,
to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Gezer with her suburbs,

06:021:022 And Kibzaim with her suburbs, and Bethhoron with her suburbs;
four cities.

06:021:023 And out of the tribe of Dan, Eltekeh with her suburbs,
Gibbethon with her suburbs,

06:021:024 Aijalon with her suburbs, Gathrimmon with her suburbs; four
cities.

06:021:025 And out of the half tribe of Manasseh, Tanach with her
suburbs, and Gathrimmon with her suburbs; two cities.

06:021:026 All the cities were ten with their suburbs for the families
of the children of Kohath that remained.

06:021:027 And unto the children of Gershon, of the families of the
Levites, out of the other half tribe of Manasseh they gave Golan in
Bashan with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and
Beeshterah with her suburbs; two cities.

06:021:028 And out of the tribe of Issachar, Kishon with her suburbs,
Dabareh with her suburbs,

06:021:029 Jarmuth with her suburbs, Engannim with her suburbs; four
cities.

06:021:030 And out of the tribe of Asher, Mishal with her suburbs, Abdon
with her suburbs,

06:021:031 Helkath with her suburbs, and Rehob with her suburbs; four
cities.

06:021:032 And out of the tribe of Naphtali, Kedesh in Galilee with her
suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Hammothdor with her
suburbs, and Kartan with her suburbs; three cities.

06:021:033 All the cities of the Gershonites according to their families
were thirteen cities with their suburbs.

06:021:034 And unto the families of the children of Merari, the rest of
the Levites, out of the tribe of Zebulun, Jokneam with her suburbs, and
Kartah with her suburbs,

06:021:035 Dimnah with her suburbs, Nahalal with her suburbs; four
cities.

06:021:036 And out of the tribe of Reuben, Bezer with her suburbs, and
Jahazah with her suburbs,

06:021:037 Kedemoth with her suburbs, and Mephaath with her suburbs;
four cities.

06:021:038 And out of the tribe of Gad, Ramoth in Gilead with her
suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Mahanaim with her
suburbs,

06:021:039 Heshbon with her suburbs, Jazer with her suburbs; four cities
in all.

06:021:040 So all the cities for the children of Merari by their
families, which were remaining of the families of the Levites, were by
their lot twelve cities.

06:021:041 All the cities of the Levites within the possession of the
children of Israel were forty and eight cities with their suburbs.

06:021:042 These cities were every one with their suburbs round about
them: thus were all these cities.

06:021:043 And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to
give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein.

06:021:044 And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all
that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their
enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their
hand.

06:021:045 There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had
spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.

06:022:001 Then Joshua called the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the
half tribe of Manasseh,

06:022:002 And said unto them, Ye have kept all that Moses the servant
of the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I
commanded you:

06:022:003 Ye have not left your brethren these many days unto this day,
but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your God.

06:022:004 And now the LORD your God hath given rest unto your brethren,
as he promised them: therefore now return ye, and get you unto your
tents, and unto the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of
the LORD gave you on the other side Jordan.

06:022:005 But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law,
which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your
God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to
cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your
soul.

06:022:006 So Joshua blessed them, and sent them away: and they went
unto their tents.

06:022:007 Now to the one half of the tribe of Manasseh Moses had given
possession in Bashan: but unto the other half thereof gave Joshua among
their brethren on this side Jordan westward. And when Joshua sent them
away also unto their tents, then he blessed them,

06:022:008 And he spake unto them, saying, Return with much riches unto
your tents, and with very much cattle, with silver, and with gold, and
with brass, and with iron, and with very much raiment: divide the spoil
of your enemies with your brethren.

06:022:009 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the
half tribe of Manasseh returned, and departed from the children of
Israel out of Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan, to go unto the
country of Gilead, to the land of their possession, whereof they were
possessed, according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

06:022:010 And when they came unto the borders of Jordan, that are in
the land of Canaan, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and
the half tribe of Manasseh built there an altar by Jordan, a great altar
to see to.

06:022:011 And the children of Israel heard say, Behold, the children of
Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh have built
an altar over against the land of Canaan, in the borders of Jordan, at
the passage of the children of Israel.

06:022:012 And when the children of Israel heard of it, the whole
congregation of the children of Israel gathered themselves together at
Shiloh, to go up to war against them.

06:022:013 And the children of Israel sent unto the children of Reuben,
and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, into the
land of Gilead, Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest,

06:022:014 And with him ten princes, of each chief house a prince
throughout all the tribes of Israel; and each one was an head of the
house of their fathers among the thousands of Israel.

06:022:015 And they came unto the children of Reuben, and to the
children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, unto the land of
Gilead, and they spake with them, saying,

06:022:016 Thus saith the whole congregation of the LORD, What trespass
is this that ye have committed against the God of Israel, to turn away
this day from following the LORD, in that ye have builded you an altar,
that ye might rebel this day against the LORD?

06:022:017 Is the iniquity of Peor too little for us, from which we are
not cleansed until this day, although there was a plague in the
congregation of the LORD,

06:022:018 But that ye must turn away this day from following the LORD?
and it will be, seeing ye rebel to day against the LORD, that to morrow
he will be wroth with the whole congregation of Israel.

06:022:019 Notwithstanding, if the land of your possession be unclean,
then pass ye over unto the land of the possession of the LORD, wherein
the LORD's tabernacle dwelleth, and take possession among us: but rebel
not against the LORD, nor rebel against us, in building you an altar
beside the altar of the LORD our God.

06:022:020 Did not Achan the son of Zerah commit a trespass in the
accursed thing, and wrath fell on all the congregation of Israel? and
that man perished not alone in his iniquity.

06:022:021 Then the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the
half tribe of Manasseh answered, and said unto the heads of the
thousands of Israel,

06:022:022 The LORD God of gods, the LORD God of gods, he knoweth, and
Israel he shall know; if it be in rebellion, or if in transgression
against the LORD, (save us not this day,)

06:022:023 That we have built us an altar to turn from following the
LORD, or if to offer thereon burnt offering or meat offering, or if to
offer peace offerings thereon, let the LORD himself require it;

06:022:024 And if we have not rather done it for fear of this thing,
saying, In time to come your children might speak unto our children,
saying, What have ye to do with the LORD God of Israel?

06:022:025 For the LORD hath made Jordan a border between us and you, ye
children of Reuben and children of Gad; ye have no part in the LORD: so
shall your children make our children cease from fearing the LORD.

06:022:026 Therefore we said, Let us now prepare to build us an altar,
not for burnt offering, nor for sacrifice:

06:022:027 But that it may be a witness between us, and you, and our
generations after us, that we might do the service of the LORD before
him with our burnt offerings, and with our sacrifices, and with our
peace offerings; that your children may not say to our children in time
to come, Ye have no part in the LORD.

06:022:028 Therefore said we, that it shall be, when they should so say
to us or to our generations in time to come, that we may say again,
Behold the pattern of the altar of the LORD, which our fathers made, not
for burnt offerings, nor for sacrifices; but it is a witness between us
and you.

06:022:029 God forbid that we should rebel against the LORD, and turn
this day from following the LORD, to build an altar for burnt offerings,
for meat offerings, or for sacrifices, beside the altar of the LORD our
God that is before his tabernacle.

06:022:030 And when Phinehas the priest, and the princes of the
congregation and heads of the thousands of Israel which were with him,
heard the words that the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and
the children of Manasseh spake, it pleased them.

06:022:031 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest said unto the
children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the children of
Manasseh, This day we perceive that the LORD is among us, because ye
have not committed this trespass against the LORD: now ye have delivered
the children of Israel out of the hand of the LORD.

06:022:032 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, and the princes,
returned from the children of Reuben, and from the children of Gad, out
of the land of Gilead, unto the land of Canaan, to the children of
Israel, and brought them word again.

06:022:033 And the thing pleased the children of Israel; and the
children of Israel blessed God, and did not intend to go up against them
in battle, to destroy the land wherein the children of Reuben and Gad
dwelt.

06:022:034 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad called the
altar Ed: for it shall be a witness between us that the LORD is God.

06:023:001 And it came to pass a long time after that the LORD had given
rest unto Israel from all their enemies round about, that Joshua waxed
old and stricken in age.

06:023:002 And Joshua called for all Israel, and for their elders, and
for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers, and said
unto them, I am old and stricken in age:

06:023:003 And ye have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto
all these nations because of you; for the LORD your God is he that hath
fought for you.

06:023:004 Behold, I have divided unto you by lot these nations that
remain, to be an inheritance for your tribes, from Jordan, with all the
nations that I have cut off, even unto the great sea westward.

06:023:005 And the LORD your God, he shall expel them from before you,
and drive them from out of your sight; and ye shall possess their land,
as the LORD your God hath promised unto you.

06:023:006 Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is
written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside
therefrom to the right hand or to the left;

06:023:007 That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among
you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear
by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them:

06:023:008 But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this
day.

06:023:009 For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations
and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you
unto this day.

06:023:010 One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God,
he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.

06:023:011 Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the
LORD your God.

06:023:012 Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the
remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall
make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you:

06:023:013 Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more
drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares
and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes,
until ye perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath
given you.

06:023:014 And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth:
and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing
hath failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spake
concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath
failed thereof.

06:023:015 Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are
come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD
bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off
this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.

06:023:016 When ye have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your God,
which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed
yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the LORD be kindled against
you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath
given unto you.

06:024:001 And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and
called for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for their
judges, and for their officers; and they presented themselves before
God.

06:024:002 And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God
of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old
time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and
they served other gods.

06:024:003 And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the
flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his
seed, and gave him Isaac.

06:024:004 And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau
mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into
Egypt.

06:024:005 I sent Moses also and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according
to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out.

06:024:006 And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the
sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and
horsemen unto the Red sea.

06:024:007 And when they cried unto the LORD, he put darkness between
you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them;
and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the
wilderness a long season.

06:024:008 And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt
on the other side Jordan; and they fought with you: and I gave them into
your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I destroyed them from
before you.

06:024:009 Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred
against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:

06:024:010 But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you
still: so I delivered you out of his hand.

06:024:011 And you went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men
of Jericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the
Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the
Jebusites; and I delivered them into your hand.

06:024:012 And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from
before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword,
nor with thy bow.

06:024:013 And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and
cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and
oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.

06:024:014 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and
in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other
side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.

06:024:015 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you
this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served
that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites,
in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the
LORD.

06:024:016 And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should
forsake the LORD, to serve other gods;

06:024:017 For the LORD our God, he it is that brought us up and our
fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which
did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way
wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:

06:024:018 And the LORD drave out from before us all the people, even
the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve the
LORD; for he is our God.

06:024:019 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the LORD:
for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your
transgressions nor your sins.

06:024:020 If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will
turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.

06:024:021 And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve the
LORD.

06:024:022 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against
yourselves that ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they
said, We are witnesses.

06:024:023 Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are
among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel.

06:024:024 And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we
serve, and his voice will we obey.

06:024:025 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set
them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.

06:024:026 And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God,
and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by
the sanctuary of the LORD.

06:024:027 And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall
be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the LORD which
he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny
your God.

06:024:028 So Joshua let the people depart, every man unto his
inheritance.

06:024:029 And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son
of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years
old.

06:024:030 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in
Timnathserah, which is in mount Ephraim, on the north side of the hill
of Gaash.

06:024:031 And Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all
the days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known all
the works of the LORD, that he had done for Israel.

06:024:032 And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought
up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which
Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred
pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of
Joseph.

06:024:033 And Eleazar the son of Aaron died; and they buried him in a
hill that pertained to Phinehas his son, which was given him in mount
Ephraim.



BOOK 07 Judges


0$:001:001 Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass,
that the children of Israel asked the LORD, saying, Who shall go up for
us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them?

07:001:002 And the LORD said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have
delivered the land into his hand.

07:001:003 And Judah said unto Simeon his brother, Come up with me into
my lot, that we may fight against the Canaanites; and I likewise will go
with thee into thy lot. So Simeon went with him.

07:001:004 And Judah went up; and the LORD delivered the Canaanites and
the Perizzites into their hand: and they slew of them in Bezek ten
thousand men.

07:001:005 And they found Adonibezek in Bezek: and they fought against
him, and they slew the Canaanites and the Perizzites.

07:001:006 But Adonibezek fled; and they pursued after him, and caught
him, and cut off his thumbs and his great toes.

07:001:007 And Adonibezek said, Threescore and ten kings, having their
thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered their meat under my table:
as I have done, so God hath requited me. And they brought him to
Jerusalem, and there he died.

07:001:008 Now the children of Judah had fought against Jerusalem, and
had taken it, and smitten it with the edge of the sword, and set the
city on fire.

07:001:009 And afterward the children of Judah went down to fight
against the Canaanites, that dwelt in the mountain, and in the south,
and in the valley.

07:001:010 And Judah went against the Canaanites that dwelt in Hebron:
(now the name of Hebron before was Kirjatharba:) and they slew Sheshai,
and Ahiman, and Talmai.

07:001:011 And from thence he went against the inhabitants of Debir: and
the name of Debir before was Kirjathsepher:

07:001:012 And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it,
to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife.

07:001:013 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, took
it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.

07:001:014 And it came to pass, when she came to him, that she moved him
to ask of her father a field: and she lighted from off her ass; and
Caleb said unto her, What wilt thou?

07:001:015 And she said unto him, Give me a blessing: for thou hast
given me a south land; give me also springs of water. And Caleb gave her
the upper springs and the nether springs.

07:001:016 And the children of the Kenite, Moses' father in law, went up
out of the city of palm trees with the children of Judah into the
wilderness of Judah, which lieth in the south of Arad; and they went and
dwelt among the people.

07:001:017 And Judah went with Simeon his brother, and they slew the
Canaanites that inhabited Zephath, and utterly destroyed it. And the
name of the city was called Hormah.

07:001:018 Also Judah took Gaza with the coast thereof, and Askelon with
the coast thereof, and Ekron with the coast thereof.

07:001:019 And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants
of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley,
because they had chariots of iron.

07:001:020 And they gave Hebron unto Caleb, as Moses said: and he
expelled thence the three sons of Anak.

07:001:021 And the children of Benjamin did not drive out the Jebusites
that inhabited Jerusalem; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of
Benjamin in Jerusalem unto this day.

07:001:022 And the house of Joseph, they also went up against Bethel:
and the LORD was with them.

07:001:023 And the house of Joseph sent to descry Bethel. (Now the name
of the city before was Luz.)

07:001:024 And the spies saw a man come forth out of the city, and they
said unto him, Shew us, we pray thee, the entrance into the city, and we
will shew thee mercy.

07:001:025 And when he shewed them the entrance into the city, they
smote the city with the edge of the sword; but they let go the man and
all his family.

07:001:026 And the man went into the land of the Hittites, and built a
city, and called the name thereof Luz: which is the name thereof unto
this day.

07:001:027 Neither did Manasseh drive out the inhabitants of Bethshean
and her towns, nor Taanach and her towns, nor the inhabitants of Dor and
her towns, nor the inhabitants of Ibleam and her towns, nor the
inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns: but the Canaanites would dwell in
that land.

07:001:028 And it came to pass, when Israel was strong, that they put
the Canaanites to tribute, and did not utterly drive them out.

07:001:029 Neither did Ephraim drive out the Canaanites that dwelt in
Gezer; but the Canaanites dwelt in Gezer among them.

07:001:030 Neither did Zebulun drive out the inhabitants of Kitron, nor
the inhabitants of Nahalol; but the Canaanites dwelt among them, and
became tributaries.

07:001:031 Neither did Asher drive out the inhabitants of Accho, nor the
inhabitants of Zidon, nor of Ahlab, nor of Achzib, nor of Helbah, nor of
Aphik, nor of Rehob:

07:001:032 But the Asherites dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants
of the land: for they did not drive them out.

07:001:033 Neither did Naphtali drive out the inhabitants of
Bethshemesh, nor the inhabitants of Bethanath; but he dwelt among the
Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land: nevertheless the inhabitants of
Bethshemesh and of Bethanath became tributaries unto them.

07:001:034 And the Amorites forced the children of Dan into the
mountain: for they would not suffer them to come down to the valley:

07:001:035 But the Amorites would dwell in mount Heres in Aijalon, and
in Shaalbim: yet the hand of the house of Joseph prevailed, so that they
became tributaries.

07:001:036 And the coast of the Amorites was from the going up to
Akrabbim, from the rock, and upward.

07:002:001 And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and
said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the
land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my
covenant with you.

07:002:002 And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this
land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice:
why have ye done this?

07:002:003 Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before
you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be
a snare unto you.

07:002:004 And it came to pass, when the angel of the LORD spake these
words unto all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their
voice, and wept.

07:002:005 And they called the name of that place Bochim: and they
sacrificed there unto the LORD.

07:002:006 And when Joshua had let the people go, the children of Israel
went every man unto his inheritance to possess the land.

07:002:007 And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and
all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the
great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel.

07:002:008 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died,
being an hundred and ten years old.

07:002:009 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in
Timnathheres, in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill
Gaash.

07:002:010 And also all that generation were gathered unto their
fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not
the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.

07:002:011 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD,
and served Baalim:

07:002:012 And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought
them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of
the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them,
and provoked the LORD to anger.

07:002:013 And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.

07:002:014 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he
delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold
them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not
any longer stand before their enemies.

07:002:015 Whithersoever they went out, the hand of the LORD was against
them for evil, as the LORD had said, and as the LORD had sworn unto
them: and they were greatly distressed.

07:002:016 Nevertheless the LORD raised up judges, which delivered them
out of the hand of those that spoiled them.

07:002:017 And yet they would not hearken unto their judges, but they
went a whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves unto them: they
turned quickly out of the way which their fathers walked in, obeying the
commandments of the LORD; but they did not so.

07:002:018 And when the LORD raised them up judges, then the LORD was
with the judge, and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all
the days of the judge: for it repented the LORD because of their
groanings by reason of them that oppressed them and vexed them.

07:002:019 And it came to pass, when the judge was dead, that they
returned, and corrupted themselves more than their fathers, in following
other gods to serve them, and to bow down unto them; they ceased not
from their own doings, nor from their stubborn way.

07:002:020 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and he
said, Because that this people hath transgressed my covenant which I
commanded their fathers, and have not hearkened unto my voice;

07:002:021 I also will not henceforth drive out any from before them of
the nations which Joshua left when he died:

07:002:022 That through them I may prove Israel, whether they will keep
the way of the LORD to walk therein, as their fathers did keep it, or
not.

07:002:023 Therefore the LORD left those nations, without driving them
out hastily; neither delivered he them into the hand of Joshua.

07:003:001 Now these are the nations which the LORD left, to prove
Israel by them, even as many of Israel as had not known all the wars of
Canaan;

07:003:002 Only that the generations of the children of Israel might
know, to teach them war, at the least such as before knew nothing
thereof;

07:003:003 Namely, five lords of the Philistines, and all the
Canaanites, and the Sidonians, and the Hivites that dwelt in mount
Lebanon, from mount Baalhermon unto the entering in of Hamath.

07:003:004 And they were to prove Israel by them, to know whether they
would hearken unto the commandments of the LORD, which he commanded
their fathers by the hand of Moses.

07:003:005 And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites,
Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and Jebusites:

07:003:006 And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave
their daughters to their sons, and served their gods.

07:003:007 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD,
and forgat the LORD their God, and served Baalim and the groves.

07:003:008 Therefore the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and
he sold them into the hand of Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia: and
the children of Israel served Chushanrishathaim eight years.

07:003:009 And when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD
raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them,
even Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother.

07:003:010 And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged
Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD delivered Chushanrishathaim
king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed against
Chushanrishathaim.

07:003:011 And the land had rest forty years. And Othniel the son of
Kenaz died.

07:003:012 And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the
LORD: and the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel,
because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD.

07:003:013 And he gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek,
and went and smote Israel, and possessed the city of palm trees.

07:003:014 So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab
eighteen years.

07:003:015 But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD
raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man
lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon
the king of Moab.

07:003:016 But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit
length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh.

07:003:017 And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon
was a very fat man.

07:003:018 And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent
away the people that bare the present.

07:003:019 But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by
Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said,
Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him.

07:003:020 And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer
parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message
from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat.

07:003:021 And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from
his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:

07:003:022 And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed
upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly;
and the dirt came out.

07:003:023 Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of
the parlour upon him, and locked them.

07:003:024 When he was gone out, his servants came; and when they saw
that, behold, the doors of the parlour were locked, they said, Surely he
covereth his feet in his summer chamber.

07:003:025 And they tarried till they were ashamed: and, behold, he
opened not the doors of the parlour; therefore they took a key, and
opened them: and, behold, their lord was fallen down dead on the earth.

07:003:026 And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the
quarries, and escaped unto Seirath.

07:003:027 And it came to pass, when he was come, that he blew a trumpet
in the mountain of Ephraim, and the children of Israel went down with
him from the mount, and he before them.

07:003:028 And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD hath
delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down
after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a
man to pass over.

07:003:029 And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men,
all lusty, and all men of valour; and there escaped not a man.

07:003:030 So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And
the land had rest fourscore years.

07:003:031 And after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the
Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered
Israel.

07:004:001 And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the
LORD, when Ehud was dead.

07:004:002 And the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan,
that reigned in Hazor; the captain of whose host was Sisera, which dwelt
in Harosheth of the Gentiles.

07:004:003 And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD: for he had
nine hundred chariots of iron; and twenty years he mightily oppressed
the children of Israel.

07:004:004 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged
Israel at that time.

07:004:005 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah
and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her
for judgment.

07:004:006 And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of
Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the LORD God of Israel
commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee
ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of
Zebulun?

07:004:007 And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the
captain of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will
deliver him into thine hand.

07:004:008 And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will
go: but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go.

07:004:009 And she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the
journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD
shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and went
with Barak to Kedesh.

07:004:010 And Barak called Zebulun and Naphtali to Kedesh; and he went
up with ten thousand men at his feet: and Deborah went up with him.

07:004:011 Now Heber the Kenite, which was of the children of Hobab the
father in law of Moses, had severed himself from the Kenites, and
pitched his tent unto the plain of Zaanaim, which is by Kedesh.

07:004:012 And they shewed Sisera that Barak the son of Abinoam was gone
up to mount Tabor.

07:004:013 And Sisera gathered together all his chariots, even nine
hundred chariots of iron, and all the people that were with him, from
Harosheth of the Gentiles unto the river of Kishon.

07:004:014 And Deborah said unto Barak, Up; for this is the day in which
the LORD hath delivered Sisera into thine hand: is not the LORD gone out
before thee? So Barak went down from mount Tabor, and ten thousand men
after him.

07:004:015 And the LORD discomfited Sisera, and all his chariots, and
all his host, with the edge of the sword before Barak; so that Sisera
lighted down off his chariot, and fled away on his feet.

07:004:016 But Barak pursued after the chariots, and after the host,
unto Harosheth of the Gentiles: and all the host of Sisera fell upon the
edge of the sword; and there was not a man left.

07:004:017 Howbeit Sisera fled away on his feet to the tent of Jael the
wife of Heber the Kenite: for there was peace between Jabin the king of
Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite.

07:004:018 And Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said unto him, Turn in,
my lord, turn in to me; fear not. And when he had turned in unto her
into the tent, she covered him with a mantle.

07:004:019 And he said unto her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water to
drink; for I am thirsty. And she opened a bottle of milk, and gave him
drink, and covered him.

07:004:020 Again he said unto her, Stand in the door of the tent, and it
shall be, when any man doth come and enquire of thee, and say, Is there
any man here? that thou shalt say, No.

07:004:021 Then Jael Heber's wife took a nail of the tent, and took an
hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the nail into
his temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and
weary. So he died.

07:004:022 And, behold, as Barak pursued Sisera, Jael came out to meet
him, and said unto him, Come, and I will shew thee the man whom thou
seekest. And when he came into her tent, behold, Sisera lay dead, and
the nail was in his temples.

07:004:023 So God subdued on that day Jabin the king of Canaan before
the children of Israel.

07:004:024 And the hand of the children of Israel prospered, and
prevailed against Jabin the king of Canaan, until they had destroyed
Jabin king of Canaan.

07:005:001 Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day,
saying,

07:005:002 Praise ye the LORD for the avenging of Israel, when the
people willingly offered themselves.

07:005:003 Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will
sing unto the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.

07:005:004 LORD, when thou wentest out of Seir, when thou marchedst out
of the field of Edom, the earth trembled, and the heavens dropped, the
clouds also dropped water.

07:005:005 The mountains melted from before the LORD, even that Sinai
from before the LORD God of Israel.

07:005:006 In the days of Shamgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jael,
the highways were unoccupied, and the travellers walked through byways.

07:005:007 The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased in
Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a mother in Israel.

07:005:008 They chose new gods; then was war in the gates: was there a
shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?

07:005:009 My heart is toward the governors of Israel, that offered
themselves willingly among the people. Bless ye the LORD.

07:005:010 Speak, ye that ride on white asses, ye that sit in judgment,
and walk by the way.

07:005:011 They that are delivered from the noise of archers in the
places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of
the LORD, even the righteous acts toward the inhabitants of his villages
in Israel: then shall the people of the LORD go down to the gates.

07:005:012 Awake, awake, Deborah: awake, awake, utter a song: arise,
Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam.

07:005:013 Then he made him that remaineth have dominion over the nobles
among the people: the LORD made me have dominion over the mighty.

07:005:014 Out of Ephraim was there a root of them against Amalek; after
thee, Benjamin, among thy people; out of Machir came down governors, and
out of Zebulun they that handle the pen of the writer.

07:005:015 And the princes of Issachar were with Deborah; even Issachar,
and also Barak: he was sent on foot into the valley. For the divisions
of Reuben there were great thoughts of heart.

07:005:016 Why abodest thou among the sheepfolds, to hear the bleatings
of the flocks? For the divisions of Reuben there were great searchings
of heart.

07:005:017 Gilead abode beyond Jordan: and why did Dan remain in ships?
Asher continued on the sea shore, and abode in his breaches.

07:005:018 Zebulun and Naphtali were a people that jeopa
