23:22. And when you reap the corn of your land, you shall not cut it to the very ground: neither shall you gather the ears that remain. But you shall leave them for the poor and for the strangers. I am the Lord your God.
23:23. And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
23:24. Say to the children of Israel: The seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall keep a sabbath, a memorial, with the sound of trumpets, and it shall be called holy.
23:25. You shall do no servile work therein, and you shall offer a holocaust to the Lord.
23:26. And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
23:27. Upon the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the day of atonement. It shall be most solemn, and shall be called holy: and you shall await your souls on that day, and shall offer a holocaust to the Lord.
23:28. You shall do no servile work in the time of this day: because it is a day of propitiation, that the Lord your God may be merciful unto you.
23:29. Every soul that is not afflicted on this day, shall perish from among his people.
23:30. And every soul that shall do any work, the same will I destroy from among his people.
23:31. You shall do no work therefore on that day: it shall be an everlasting ordinance unto you in all your generations, and dwellings.
23:32. It is a sabbath of rest, and you shall afflict your souls beginning on the ninth day of the month. From evening until evening you shall celebrate your sabbaths.
23:33. And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
23:34. Say to the children of Israel: From the fifteenth day of this same seventh month, shall be kept the feast of tabernacles, seven days to the Lord.
23:35. The first day shall be called most solemn and most holy: you shall do no servile work therein. And seven days you shall offer holocausts to the Lord.
23:36. The eighth day also shall be most solemn and most holy: and you shall offer holocausts to the Lord. For it is the day of assembly and congregation. You shall do no servile work therein.
23:37. These are the feasts of the Lord which you shall call most solemn and most holy, and shall offer on them oblations to the Lord: holocausts and libations according to the rite of every day.
23:38. Besides the sabbaths of the Lord, and your gifts, and those things that you offer by vow, or which you shall give to the Lord voluntarily.
23:39. So from the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you shall have gathered in all the fruits of your land, you shall celebrate the feast of the Lord seven days. On the first day and the eighth shall be a sabbath: that is a day of rest.
23:40. And you shall take to you on the first day the fruits of the fairest tree, and branches of palm trees, and boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook: And you shall rejoice before the Lord your God.
23:41. And you shall keep the solemnity thereof seven days in the year.
It shall be an everlasting ordinance in your generations. In the seventh month shall you celebrate this feast.
23:42. And you shall dwell in bowers seven days. Every one that is of the race of Israel, shall dwell in tabernacles:
23:43. That your posterity may know, that I made the children of Israel to dwell in tabernacles, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.
23:44. And Moses spoke concerning the feasts of the Lord to the children of Israel.
Leviticus Chapter 24
The oil for the lamps. The loaves of proposition. The punishment of blasphemy.
24:1. And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
24:2. Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee the finest and clearest oil of olives, to furnish the lamps continually,
24:3. Without the veil of the testimony in the tabernacle of the covenant. And Aaron shall set them from evening until morning before the Lord, by a perpetual service and rite in your generations.
24:4. They shall be set upon the most pure candlestick before the Lord continually.
24:5. Thou shalt take also fine flour, and shalt bake twelve loaves thereof, two tenths shall be in every loaf.
24:6. And thou shalt set them six and six, one against another, upon the most clean table before the Lord.
24:7. And thou shalt put upon them the clearest frankincense, that the bread may be for a memorial of the oblation of the Lord.
24:8. Every sabbath they shall be changed before the Lord: being received of the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant.
24:9. And they shall be Aaron's and his sons', that they may eat them in the holy place: because it is most holy of the sacrifices of the Lord by a perpetual right.
24:10. And behold there went out the son of a woman of Israel, whom she had of an Egyptian, among the children of Israel: and fell at words in the camp with a man of Israel.
24:11. And when he had blasphemed the name, and had cursed it, he was brought to Moses. (Now his mother was called Salumith, the daughter of Dabri, of the tribe of Dan.)
24:12. And they put him into prison, till they might know what the Lord would command.
24:13. And the Lord spoke to Moses,
24:14. Saying: Bring forth the blasphemer without the camp: and let them that heard him, put their hands upon his head: and let all the people stone him.
24:15. And thou shalt speak to the children of Israel: The man that curseth his God, shall bear his sin:
24:16. And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, dying let him die.
All the multitude shall stone him, whether he be a native or a stranger.
He that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, dying let him die.
24:17. He that striketh and killeth a man: dying let him die.
24:18. He that killeth a beast, shall make it good that is to say, shall give beast for beast.
24:19. He that giveth a blemish to any of his neighbours: as he hath done, so shall it be done to him:
24:20. Breach for breach, eye for ere, tooth for tooth, shall he restore. What blemish he gave, the like shall he be compelled to suffer.
24:21. He that striketh a beast, shall render another. He that striketh a man shall be punished.
24:22. Let there be equal judgment among you, whether he be a stranger, or a native that offends: because I am the Lord your God.
24:23. And Moses spoke to the children of Israel. And they brought forth him that had blasphemed, without the camp: and they stoned him. And the children of Israel did as the Lord had commanded Moses.
