And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, When ye are come into the land of your habitation, which I give to you, 3 and thou wilt offer a whole-burnt-offering to the Lord, a whole-burnt-offering or a meat-offering to 1perform a vow, or a free-will offering, or to offer in your feasts a sacrifice of sweet savour to the Lord, whether of the herd or the flock: 4 then he that offers his gift to the Lord shall bring a meat-offering of fine flour, a tenth part of an


we surveyed is indeed extremely good. 8 If the Lord choose us, he will bring us into this land and give it us; a land which flows with milk and honey. 9 Only depart not from the Lord; and fear ye not the people of the land, for they are meat for us; for the season of prosperity is departed from them, but the Lord is among us: fear them not.

10 And all the congregation bade stone them with stones; and the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud on the tabernacle of witness to all the children of Israel. 11 And the Lord said to Moses, How long does this people provoke me? and how long do they 2refuse to believe me for all the signs which I have wrought among them? 12 I will smite them with death, and destroy them; and I will make of thee and of thy father's house a great nation, and much greater than this. 13 And Moses said to the Lord, So Egypt shall hear, for thou hast brought up this people from them by thy might. 14 Moreover all the dwellers upon this land have heard that thou art Lord in the midst of this people, who, O Lord, art seen by them face to face, and thy cloud rests upon them; and thou goest before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, and by night in a pillar of fire. 15 And if thou shalt destroy this nation as one man; then all the nations that have heard thy name shall speak, saying, 16 Because the Lord could not bring this people into the land which he sware to them, he has overthrown them in the wilderness. 17 And now, O Lord, let thy strength be exalted, as thou spakest, saying, 18 The Lord is long-suffering and merciful, and true, removing transgressions and iniquities and sins, and he will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the sins of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation. 19 Forgive this people their sin according to thy great mercy, as thou wast favourable to them from Egypt until now.

20 And the Lord said to Moses, I am gracious to them according to thy word. 21 But as I live and my name is living, so the glory of the Lord shall fill all the earth. 22 For all the men who see my glory, and the signs which I wrought in Egypt, and in the wilderness, and have tempted me this tenth time, and have not hearkened to my voice, 23 surely they shall not see the land, which I sware to their fathers; but their children which are with me here, as many as know not good or evil, every inexperienced youth to them will I give the land; but none who have provoked me shall see it. 24 But my servant Chaleb, because there was another spirit in him, and he followed me, I will bring him into the land into which he entered, and his seed shall inherit it. 25 But Amalec and the Chananite dwell in the valley: to-morrow turn and depart for the wilderness by the way of the Red Sea.

26 And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 27 How long shall I endure this wicked congregation? I have heard their murmurings against, me even the murmuring of the children of Israel, which they


ephah mingled with oil, even with the fourth part of a hin. 5 And for a drink-offering ye shall offer the fourth part of a hin on the whole-burnt-offering, or on the meat-offering: for every lamb thou shall offer so much, as a sacrifice, a smell of sweet savour to the Lord. 6 And for a ram, when ye offer it as a whole-burnt-offering or as a sacrifice, thou shall prepare as a meat-offering two tenths of fine flour mingled with oil, the third part of a hin. 7 And ye shall offer for a smell of sweet savour to the Lord wine for a drink-offering, the third part of a hin.

8 And if ye sacrifice a bullock from the herd for a whole-burnt-offering or for a sacrifice, to perform a vow or a peace-offering to the Lord, 9 then the worshipper shall offer upon the calf a meat-offering, three tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, even the half of a hin. 10 And wine for a drink-offering the half of a hin, a sacrifice for a smell of sweet savour to the Lord.

11 Thus shalt thou do to one calf or to one ram, or to one lamb of the sheep or kid of the goats. 12 According to the number of what ye shall offer, so shall ye do to each one, according to their number.

13 Every native of the country shall do thus to offer such things as sacrifices for a smell of sweet savour to the Lord. 14 And if there should be a stranger among you in your land, or one who should be born to you among your generations, and he will offer a sacrifice, a smell of sweet savour to the Lord -- as ye do, so the whole congregation shall offer to the Lord.

15 There shall be one law for you and for the strangers abiding among you; a perpetual law for your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the Lord. 16 There shall be one law and one ordinance for you, and for the stranger that abides among you.

17 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 18 Speak to the sons of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, When ye are entering into the land, into which I bring you, 19 then it shall come to pass, when ye shall eat of the bread of the land, ye shall separate a wave-offering, a special offering to the Lord; the first-fruits of your dough. 20 Ye shall offer your bread a heave-offering: as a heave-offering from the threshing-floor, so shall ye separate it, 21 even the first-fruits of your dough, and ye shall give the Lord a heave-offering through-out your generations.

22 But whensoever ye shall transgress, and not perform all these commands, which the Lord spoke to Moses; 23 as the Lord appointed you by the hand of Moses, from the day which the Lord appointed you and forward through-out your generations, 24 then it shall come to pass, if a trespass be committed unwillingly, unknown to the congregation, then shall all the congregation offer a calf of the herd without blemish for a whole-burnt-offering of sweet savour to the Lord, and its meat-offering and its drink-offering according to the ordinance, and one kid of the goats for a sin-offering. 25 And the priest shall make atonement for all the congregation of the children of Israel, and the trespass shall be forgiven them; because it is involuntary; and they have brought their gift, a burnt-offering to the Lord for their trespass before the Lord; even for their involuntary sins.


26 And it shall be forgiven as respects all the congregation of the children of Israel, and the stranger that is abiding among you, because it is involuntary to all the people.

27 And if one soul sin unwillingly, he shall bring one she-goat of a year old for a sin-offering. 28 And the priest shall make atonement for the soul that committed the trespass unwillingly, and that sinned unwillingly before the Lord, to make atonement for him. 29 There shall be one law for the native among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that abides among them, whosoever shall commit a trespass unwillingly.

30 And whatever soul either of the natives or of the strangers shall do any thing with a presumptuous hand, he will provoke God; that soul shall be cut off from his people, 31 for he has set at nought the word of the Lord and broken his commands: that soul shall be utterly destroyed, his sin is upon

32 And the children of Israel were in the wilderness, and they found a man gathering sticks on the sabbath-day. 33 And they who found him gathering sticks on the sabbath-day brought him to Moses and Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel. 34 And they placed him in custody, for they did not determine what they should do to him. 35 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Let the man be by all means put to death: do ye all the congregation, stone him with stones. 36 And all the congregation brought him forth out of the camp; and all the congregation stoned him with stones outside the camp, as the Lord commanded Moses.

37 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 38 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt tell them; and let them make for themselves fringes upon the borders of their garments throughout their generations: and ye shall put upon the fringes of the borders a lace of blue. 39 And it shall be on your fringes, and ye shall look on them, and ye shall remember all the commands of the Lord, and do them: and ye shall not turn back after your imaginations, and after the sight of your eyes in the things after which ye go a whoring; 40 that ye may remember and perform all my commands, and ye shall be holy unto your God. 41 I am the Lord your God that brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the Lord your God.
