the month of aAbib
, and keep the bpassover
unto the Lord
thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord
thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the apassover
unto the Lord
thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the bplace
which the Lord
shall choose to place his name there.
Thou shalt eat no aleavened
bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat bunleavened
bread therewith, even
the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in chaste
: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.
And there shall be no aleavened
bread seen with thee in all thy bcoast
seven days; neither shall there any thing
of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, cremain
all night until the morning.
Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy agates
, which the Lord
thy God giveth thee:
But at the place which the Lord
thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the apassover
at even, at the going down of the sun, at the bseason
that thou camest forth out of Egypt.
And thou shalt aroast
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.
Six days thou shalt eat aunleavened
bread: and on the seventh day shall be
assembly to the Lord
thy God: thou shalt do no work therein.
¶ 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 acorn
And thou shalt keep the feast of aweeks
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 bblessed
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.
And thou shalt remember that thou wast a abondman
in Egypt: and thou shalt observe and do these statutes.
¶ Thou shalt observe the feast of atabernacles
seven days, bafter
that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:
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.
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.
times in a year shall all thy males bappear
before the Lord
thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the cfeast
of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the Lord
Every man shall agive
as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord
thy God which he hath given thee.
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.
Thou shalt not awrest bjudgment
; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a cgift
: for a gift doth dblind
the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.
That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou mayest live, and inherit the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the Lord
thy God, which thou shalt make thee.
Neither shalt thou set thee up any aimage
; which the Lord
thy God hateth.
