1He who is wounded in the stones, or has his privy member cut off,
shall not enter into the assembly of Yahweh.
2A bastard shall not enter
into the assembly of Yahweh; even to the tenth generation shall none of his
enter into the assembly of Yahweh.
3An Ammonite or a Moabite shall not
enter into the assembly of Yahweh; even to the tenth generation shall none
belonging to them enter into the assembly of Yahweh forever:
they didn’t meet you with bread and with water in the way, when you came
forth out of Egypt, and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor
from Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you.
5Nevertheless Yahweh your God
wouldn’t listen to Balaam; but Yahweh your God turned the curse into a
blessing to you, because Yahweh your God loved you.
6You shall not seek
their peace nor their prosperity all your days forever.
7You shall not
abhor an Edomite; for he is your brother: you shall not abhor an Egyptian,
because you lived as a foreigner in his land.
8The children of the third
generation who are born to them shall enter into the assembly of Yahweh.
9When you go forth in camp against your enemies, then you shall keep you
from every evil thing.
10If there be among you any man, who is not clean
by reason of that which happens him by night, then shall he go abroad out of
the camp, he shall not come within the camp:
11but it shall be, when
evening comes on, he shall bathe himself in water; and when the sun is down,
he shall come within the camp.
12You shall have a place also outside of
the camp, where you shall go forth abroad:
13and you shall have a paddle
among your weapons; and it shall be, when you sit down abroad, you shall dig
therewith, and shall turn back and cover that which comes from you:
Yahweh your God walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you, and to give
up your enemies before you; therefore shall your camp be holy, that he may
not see an unclean thing in you, and turn away from you.
15You shall not
deliver to his master a servant who is escaped from his master to you:
16he shall dwell with you, in the midst of you, in the place which he
shall choose within one of your gates, where it pleases him best: you shall
not oppress him.
17There shall be no prostitute of the daughters of
Israel, neither shall there be a sodomite of the sons of Israel.
shall not bring the hire of a prostitute, or the wages of a dog, into the
house of Yahweh your God for any vow: for even both these are an abomination
to Yahweh your God.
19You shall not lend on interest to your brother;
interest of money, interest of food, interest of anything that is lent on
20to a foreigner you may lend on interest; but to your brother
you shall not lend on interest, that Yahweh your God may bless you in all
that you put your hand to, in the land where you go in to possess it.
21When you shall vow a vow to Yahweh your God, you shall not be slack to
pay it: for Yahweh your God will surely require it of you; and it would be
sin in you.
22But if you shall forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in you.
23That which is gone out of your lips you shall observe and do; according
as you have vowed to Yahweh your God, a freewill offering, which you have
promised with your mouth.
24When you come into your neighbor’s vineyard,
then you may eat of grapes your fill at your own pleasure; but you shall not
put any in your vessel.
25When you come into your neighbor’s standing
grain, then you may pluck the ears with your hand; but you shall not move a
sickle to your neighbor’s standing grain.
