1 Observe the month of new corn, and thou shalt sacrifice the passover to the Lord thy God; because in the month of new corn thou camest out of Egypt by night. 2 And thou shalt sacrifice the passover to the Lord thy God, sheep and oxen in the place which the Lord thy God shall choose to have his name called upon it. 3 Thou shalt not eat leaven with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread with it, bread of affliction, because ye came forth out of Egypt in haste; that ye may remember the day of your coming forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life. 4 Leaven shall not be seen with thee in all thy borders for seven days, and there shall not be left of the flesh which thou shalt sacrifice at even on the first day until the morning. 5 Thou shalt not have power to sacrifice the passover in any of the cities, which the Lord thy God gives thee. 6 But in the place which the Lord thy God shall choose, to have his name called there, thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even at the setting of the sun, at the time when thou camest out of Egypt. 7 And thou shalt boil and roast and eat it in the place, which the Lord thy God shall choose; and thou shalt return in the morning, and go to thy 1house. 8 Six days shalt thou eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day is 2a holiday, a feast to the Lord thy God: thou shalt not do in it any work, save what 3must be done 4by any one.
9 Seven weeks shalt thou number to thyself; when thou hast begun to put the sickle to the corn, thou shalt begin to number seven weeks. 10 And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks to the Lord thy God, accordingly as thy hand has power in as many things as the Lord thy God shall give thee.
11 And thou shalt rejoice before the Lord thy God, thou and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man-servant and thy maid-servant, and the Levite, and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow which dwells among you, in whatsoever place the Lord thy God shall choose, that his name should be called there.
12 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and thou shalt observe and do the commands. 13 Thou shalt keep for thyself the feast of tabernacles seven days, when thou
16 Three times in the year shall all thy males appear before the Lord thy God in the place which the Lord shall choose in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: thou shalt not appear before the Lord thy God empty. 17 Each one according to 5his ability according to the blessing of the Lord try God which lie has given thee.
18 Thou shalt make for thyself judges and officers in thy cities, which the Lord thy God gives thee in thy tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment: 19 they shall not wrest judgment, nor favour persons, nor receive a gift; for gifts blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous. 20 Thou shall justly pursue justice, that ye may live, and go in and inherit the land which the Lord shy God gives thee.
21 Thou shalt not plant for thyself a grove; thou shalt not 6plant for thyself any tree near the altar of thy God. 22 Thou shalt not set up for thyself a pillar, which the Lord thy God hates.
