of all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and of all their transgressions, and all their sins, and lay them on the head of

the live goat, and send him away by the hand of a man ready 22 for the purpose, into the wilderness. And the goat shall bear 23 away upon him their iniquities to an untrodden land. And having sent away the goat into the wilderness, Aaron shall

go into the tabernacle of the testimony, and put off his linen rai.

ment which he had on when he went into the holy place, and 24 shall lay it up there. And he shall wash his body with water,

in a holy place, and put on his robe, and come forth, and offer his own whole burnt offering, and the whole burnt offering of

the people, and make atonement for himself and his household, 25 and for the people, as well as for the priests; and shall offer up 26 the suet of the sin offerings on the altar. And he who letteth

go the he-goat which was sent away to be set at liberty, shall

wash his clothes, and wash his body with water, and after that 27 come into the camp. And they shall carry forth out of the

camp the bull for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin offering, the blood of which was carried in to make atonement

in the holy place, and shall burn them with fire, both the skins, 28 and the flesh, and the dung thereof. And he who burneth them

shall wash his clothes and wash his body with water, and after 29 that he shall come into the camp. And this shall be to you an

everlasting rite. In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the

month, you shall humble your souls, and do no work, whether 30 native or the proselyte who dwelleth among you; for on that day

he shall make atonement for you, to purify you from all your 31 sins before the Lord, that you may be cleansed. This rest

shall be to you a sabbath of sabbaths, and you shall humble 32 your souls. It is an everlasting statute. That priest shall make

the atonement, who shall be anointed, and whose hands shall 33 be consecrated to officiate as priest after his father. And he

shall put on the linen raiment—the holy raiment, and shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and for the tabernacle of the testimony, and he shall make atonement for the altar; and he shall make atonement for the priests, and for all the congregation. And the making this atonement for the children of Israel, for all their sins, shall be to you an everlasting

may offer

statute. It shall be made once a year, as the Lord command

ed Moses. XVII. Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to

Aaron and his sons, and to all the sons of Israel, and thou shalt 2 say unto them, This is the thing which the Lord hath com3 manded, saying, Be the man who he may of the children of

Israel, or of the proselytes who dwell among you, who shall

kill a young bull, or a sheep, or a goat, in the camp, or who 4 shall kill any of them out of the camp, and not bring it to the

door of the tabernacle of the testimony, that it may be offered for a whole burnt offering, or for a thank offering to the Lord, to be accepted for a smell of fragrance-even though he kill it without the camp, if he bring it not to the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, that it may be offered as a gift to the Lord, before the tabernacle of the Lord, blood shall be imput.

ed to that man. He hath shed blood; that person shall be cut 5 off from among his people. In order that the children of Israel

up their sacrifices, whatever they kill in the fields they shall carry for the Lord to the doors of the tabernacle of the

testimony, to the priest, and offer them as a sacrifice of thanks6 giving to the Lord; and the priest shall pour the blood against

the altar round about, before the Lord, at the doors of the ta

bernacle of the testimony; and offer up the suet for a smell of 7 fragrance for the Lord. And they shall no more offer their sa

crifices to vanities after which they go a whoring. It shall be a 8 perpetual statute for you throughout your generations. There

fore thou shalt say unto them, Be the man who he may of the children of Israel, or of the children of the proselytes who

dwell among you, who shall offer a whole burnt offering, or a 9 sacrifice of four, and not bring it to the door of the tabernacle

of the testimony, that it may be offered to the Lord, that man 10 shall be cut off from among his people. And be the man who

he may of the children of Israel, or of the proselytes who dwell among you, who shall eat any blood, I will set my face you shall eat blood, even the proselyte who dwelleth among you 13 shall not eat blood. And be the man who he may of the chil.

against that person who eateth blood, and destroy him from 11 among his people. For the blood is the life of all flesh; and I

have given it to you to make atonement on the altar for your 12 souls. For the blood shall make atonement for souls. For this

cause I have said to the children of Israel, No person among

dren of Israel, or of the proselytes who dwell among you, who
in hunting shall catch a wild beast, or a bird, which may be

eaten, he shall pour out the blood, and cover it in the ground. 14 For its blood is the life of all flesh, therefore I have said to the

children of Israel, you shall not eat the blood of any flesh. Be.

'cause its blood is the life of all flesh, every one who eateth it 15 shall be cut off. And every person who eateth that which hath

died of itself, or been caught by wild beasts, whether he be
one of yourselves, or of the proselytes, shall wash his clothes,

and wash himself with water, and be unclean until evening. 16 Then he shall be clean. But if he do not wash his clothes, and

if his body be not washed with water, he shall bear his iniquity. XVIII. Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the 3 children of Israel; and thou shalt say unto them, I the Lord

am your God; you shall not do according to the customs of Egypt, in which you sojourned; nor shall you do according

to the customs of the land of Chanaan, to which I am leading 4 you; you shall not walk by their ordinances. You shall exe. i.

cute my judgments, and keep my statutes, and walk by them; 5 I the Lord am your God, therefore you shall keep all my com. .

mandments, and all my judgments, and execute them, which 6 if a man do he shall live thereby. I the Lord am your God;

no man, be he who he may, shall approach to near relations of ñ his own flesh to uncover their nakedness. I am the Lord: the

nakedness of thy father, that is the nakedness of thy mother,

thou shalt not uncover; for she is thy mother, thou shalt not 8 uncover her nakedness. The nakedness of thy father's wife 9 thou shalt not uncover ; for it is thy father's nakedness. The

nakedness of thy sister by the same father or by the same

mother, whether born at home or born abroad, their nakedness 10 thou shalt not uncover. The nakedness of thy son's daughter,

or of thy daughter's daughter, their nakedness thou shalt not 11 uncover, for it is thy own nakedness. The nakedness of the

daughter of thy father's wife thou shalt not uncover; being of

the same father she is thy sister: thou shalt not uncover her 12 nakedness. The nakedness of thy father's sister thou shalt not 13 uncover, for she is thy father's near kinswoman. The naked.

ness of thy mother's sister thou shalt not uncover; for she is 14 thy mother's near kinswoman. The nakedness of thy father's

brother thou shalt not uncover; thou shalt not go in unto his 15 wife, for she is thy near relation. The nakedness of thy daugh

ter in law thou shalt not uncover; for she is thy son's wife, 16 thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. The nakedness of thy

brother's wife thou shalt not uncover, it is the nakedness of 17 thy brother. The nakedness of a wife and of her daughter

thou shalt not uncover. Thou shalt not take thy son's daugh

ter, nor thy daughter's daughter to uncover their nakedness; 18 for they are thy near kinswomen. It is wickedness. In addi,

tion to a sister thou shalt not take to wife a rival sister to un19 cover her nakedness while her sister is still living. And thou

shalt not approach to a wife during the time of her separation 20 for uncleanness, to uncover her nakedness : and with thy

neighbour's wife thou shalt not lie carnally to defile thyself with 21 her. Thou shalt not give any of thy seed to serve an Archon; · 22 nor shalt thou profane the holy name I the Lord. Thou shalt

not lie with a man as with a womán; for it is an abomination. 23 Nor shalt thou lie with any beast to pollute thyself with it; nor

shall a woman be exposed to any beast to be pressed by it; for 24 it is horrible. Be not polluted with any such things; for with

all such things have those nations been polluted, which I drive 25 out before you, and the land hath been polluted, and for its

sake I have retributed to them their iniquity, and the land is 26 become a mortal enemy to them who dwell therein. You there.

fore shall keep all my institutions and all my ordinances; and

none of you, neither the native, nor the proselyte who dwelleth 27 among you, shall commit any of these abominations, which

the men of the country who were before you have committed, 28 and by which the land hath been polluted; that the land may

not become a mortal enemy to you when you pollute it; as it 29 hath been to those nations which were before you. For who.

ever shall commit any of these abominations, the persons who

shall commit them shall be cut off from among their people. 30 Therefore you shall keep my ordinances that you may not

practise any of these abominable customs, which were practised before you. You shall not pollute yourselves with them; for I the Lord am your God.

XIX. Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the

congregation of the children of Israel; and thou shalt say un2 to them, You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy. 3 Let every one reverence his father and his mother. And you

shall keep my sabbaths. I am the Lord your God; you shall not follow idols, nor make for yourselves molten gods. I the Lord am your God; therefore when you offer a sacrifice of thanks

giving to the Lord, you shall offer it in an acceptable manner. 6. On the day you offer such a sacrifice it shall be eaten; or on

the next day; and if any of it be left till the third day, it shall 7 be burned with fire. And if it be eaten on the third day, it is 8 as if it had not been offered. It will not be accepted. He who

eateth it will contract guilt, because he hath profaned the holy

things of the Lord. The persons therefore who eat it shall be 9 cut off from among their people. And when you gather in the

harvest of your land, you shall not make a compleat ingathering 10 of the harvest of your field, nor gather up the gleanings of thy

harvest ; nor shalt thou go over thy vineyard a second time, nor

gather the straggling clusters of thy vineyard. Thou shalt leave 11 them for the poor, and for the stranger. I am the Lord your

God; you shall not steal; you shall not lie; nor shall any one 12-accuse his brother for trifles, you shall not swear by my name

to a falsehood; nor profane the holy name of your God. 13 I am the Lord your God, thou shalt not injure thy neigh

bour, nor commit rapine; nor shall the wages of a hireling re14 main with thee till the morning. Thou shalt not curse the

deaf, nor lay a stumbling block before the blind, but shalt fear

the Lord thy God. . 15 I am the Lord your God; you shall not do an unjust thing

in the execution of justice:, thou shalt not respect the face of 16 the poor, nor revere the face of the mighty. With righteous.

ness thou shalt judge thy neighbour. Thou shalt not go about with deceit among thy nation, nor set thyself against the blood

of thy neighbour. 17 I am the Lord your God; thou shalt not hate thy brother

in thy heart. With rebuke thou shalt correct thy neighbour,

and not contract guilt on his account; but let not thy hand take 18 vengeance. Thou shalt not bear a grudge against the children
