Vayikra (Book of Leviticus), Chapter 19

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 And HaShem spoke unto Moses, saying:

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them: Ye shall be holy; for I HaShem your G-d am holy.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and ye shall keep My sabbaths: I am HaShem your G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Turn ye not unto the idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am HaShem your G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 And when ye offer a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto HaShem, ye shall offer it that ye may be accepted.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow; and if aught remain until the third day, it shall be burnt with fire.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is a vile thing; it shall not be accepted.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 But every one that eateth it shall bear his iniquity, because he hath profaned the holy thing of HaShem; and that soul shall be cut off from his people.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corner of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleaning of thy harvest.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather the fallen fruit of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and for the stranger: I am HaShem your G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Ye shall not steal; neither shall ye deal falsely, nor lie one to another.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 And ye shall not swear by My name falsely, so that thou profane the name of thy G-d: I am HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Thou shalt not oppress thy neighbour, nor rob him; the wages of a hired servant shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling-block before the blind, but thou shalt fear thy G-d: I am HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment; thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor favour the person of the mighty; but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people; neither shalt thou stand idly by the blood of thy neighbour: I am HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thy heart; thou shalt surely rebuke thy neighbour, and not bear sin because of him.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 Thou shalt not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 Ye shall keep My statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind; thou shalt not sow thy field with two kinds of seed; neither shall there come upon thee a garment of two kinds of stuff mingled together.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, designated for a man, and not at all redeemed, nor was freedom given her; there shall be inquisition; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 And he shall bring his forfeit unto HaShem, unto the door of the tent of meeting, even a ram for a guilt-offering.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 And the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the guilt-offering before HaShem for his sin which he hath sinned; and he shall be forgiven for his sin which he hath sinned.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 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 forbidden; three years shall it be as forbidden unto you; it shall not be eaten.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 And in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy, for giving praise unto HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 But in the fifth year may ye eat of the fruit thereof, that it may yield unto you more richly the increase thereof: I am HaShem your G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 Ye shall not eat with the blood; neither shall ye practise divination nor soothsaying.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor imprint any marks upon you: I am HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'29 Profane not thy daughter, to make her a harlot, lest the land fall into harlotry, and the land become full of lewdness.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'30 Ye shall keep My sabbaths, and reverence My sanctuary: I am HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'31 Turn ye not unto the ghosts, nor unto familiar spirits; seek them not out, to be defiled by them: I am HaShem your G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001F-QINU`"'32 Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and thou shalt fear thy G-d: I am HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000020-QINU`"'33 And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not do him wrong.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000021-QINU`"'34 The stranger that sojourneth with you shall be unto you as the home-born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am HaShem your G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000022-QINU`"'35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000023-QINU`"'36 Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am HaShem your G-d, who brought you out of the land of Egypt.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000024-QINU`"'37 And ye shall observe all My statutes, and all Mine ordinances, and do them: I am HaShem.
