; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not bjustify
¶ And thou shalt take no agift
: for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.
¶ Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruits thereof:
But the aseventh year
thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the bpoor
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.
Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the aseventh
day thou shalt brest
: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.
And in all things
that I have said unto you abe

times thou shalt keep a bfeast
unto me in the year.
Thou shalt keep the afeast
of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month bAbib

in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in cthy
labours out of the field.
Three times in the year all thy amales
shall appear before the Lord God
Thou shalt not offer the ablood
of my sacrifice with bleavened
bread; neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain until the morning.
The first of the afirstfruits
of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the Lord
thy God. Thou shalt not bseethe
a kid in his mother’s milk.
¶ Behold, I send an aAngel
before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine aenemies
, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.
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.
Thou shalt not abow
down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly boverthrow
