The Holiness of the Offerings
22 1 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 2 'Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and they are separated from the holy things of the sons of Israel, and they pollute not My holy name in what they are hallowing to Me; I 'am' Jehovah. 3 'Say unto them, To your generations, any man who draweth near, out of all your seed, unto the holy things which the sons of Israel do sanctify to Jehovah, and his uncleanness on him—even that person hath been cut off from before Me; I 'am' Jehovah. 4 'Any man of the seed of Aaron, and is leprous or hath an issue—of the holy things he doth not eat till that he is clean; and he who is coming against any uncleanness of a person, or a man whose seed of copulation goeth out from him, 5 or a man who cometh against any teeming thing which is unclean to him, or against a man who is unclean to him, even any of his uncleanness— 6 the person who cometh against it—hath even been unclean till the evening, and doth not eat of the holy things, but hath bathed his flesh with water, 7 and the sun hath gone in, and he hath been clean, and afterwards he doth eat of the holy things, for it 'is' his food; 8 a carcase or torn thing he doth not eat, for uncleanness thereby; I 'am' Jehovah. 9 'And they have kept My charge, and bear no sin for it, that they have died for it when they pollute it; I 'am' Jehovah sanctifying them.
10 'And no stranger doth eat of the holy thing; a settler of a priest and an hireling doth not eat of the holy thing; 11 and when a priest buyeth a person, the purchase of his money, he doth eat of it, also one born in his house; they do eat of his bread. 12 'And a priest's daughter, when she is a strange man's,—she, of the heave-offering of the holy things doth not eat; 13 and a priest's daughter, when she is a widow, or cast out, and hath no seed, and hath turned back unto the house of her father, as 'in' her youth, of her father's bread she doth eat; but no stranger doth eat of it. 14 'And when a man doth eat of a holy thing through ignorance, then he hath added its fifth part to it, and hath given 'it' to the priest, with the holy thing; 15 and they do not pollute the holy things of the sons of Israel—that which they lift up to Jehovah, 16 nor have caused them to bear the iniquity of the guilt-offering in their eating their holy things; for I 'am' Jehovah, sanctifying them.'
17 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 18 'Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, Any man of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners in Israel, who bringeth near his offering, of all his vows, or of all his willing offerings which they bring near to Jehovah for a burnt-offering; 19 at your pleasure a perfect one, a male of the herd, of the sheep or of the goats; 20 nothing in which 'is' blemish do ye bring near, for it is not for a pleasing thing for you. 21 'And when a man bringeth near a sacrifice of peace-offerings to Jehovah, to complete a vow, or for a willing-offering, of the herd or of the flock, it is perfect for a pleasing thing: no blemish is in it; 22 blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed—ye do not bring these near to Jehovah, and a fire-offering ye do not make of them on the altar to Jehovah. 23 'As to an ox or a sheep enlarged or dwarfed—a willing-offering ye do make it, but for a vow it is not pleasing. 24 As to a bruised, or beaten, or enlarged, or cut thing—ye do not bring 'it' near to Jehovah; even in your land ye do not do it. 25 And from the hand of a son of a stranger ye do not bring near the bread of your God, of any of these, for their corruption 'is' in them; blemish 'is' in them; they are not pleasing for you.' 26 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 27 'When ox or lamb or goat is born, and it hath been seven days under its dam, then from the eighth day and henceforth, it is pleasing for an offering, a fire-offering to Jehovah; 28 but an ox or sheep—it and its young one, ye do not slaughter in one day. 29 'And when ye sacrifice a sacrifice of thanksgiving to Jehovah, at your pleasure ye do sacrifice, 30 on that day it is eaten, ye do not leave of it till morning; I 'am' Jehovah; 31 and ye have kept my commands, and have done them; I 'am' Jehovah; 32 and ye do not pollute My holy name, and I have been hallowed in the midst of the sons of Israel; I 'am' Jehovah, sanctifying you, 33 who am bringing you up out of the land of Egypt, to become your God; I 'am' Jehovah.'
The Appointed Feasts
23 1 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 2 'Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, Appointed seasons of Jehovah, which ye proclaim, holy convocations, 'are' these: they 'are' My appointed seasons: 3 six days is work done, and in the seventh day 'is' a sabbath of rest, a holy convocation; ye do no work; it 'is' a sabbath to Jehovah in all your dwellings.
4 'These 'are' appointed seasons of Jehovah, holy convocations, which ye proclaim in their appointed seasons: 5 in the first month, on the fourteenth of the month, between the evenings, 'is' the passover to Jehovah; 6 and on the fifteenth day of this month 'is' the feast of unleavened things to Jehovah; seven days unleavened things ye do eat; 7 on the first day ye have a holy convocation, ye do no servile work; 8 and ye have brought near a fire-offering to Jehovah seven days; in the seventh day 'is' a holy convocation; ye do no servile work.' 9 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 10 'Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, When ye come in unto the land which I am giving to you, and have reaped its harvest, and have brought in the sheaf, the beginning of your harvest unto the priest, 11 then he hath waved the sheaf before Jehovah for your acceptance; on the morrow of the sabbath doth the priest wave it. 12 'And ye have prepared in the day of your waving the sheaf a lamb, a perfect one, a son of a year, for a burnt-offering to Jehovah, 13 and its present two tenth deals of flour mixed with oil, a fire-offering to Jehovah, a sweet fragrance, and its drink-offering, wine, a fourth of the hin. 14 'And bread and roasted corn and full ears ye do not eat until this self-same day, until your bringing in the offering of your God—a statute age-during to your generations, in all your dwellings.
15 'And ye have numbered to you from the morrow of the sabbath, from the day of your bringing in the sheaf of the wave-offering: they are seven perfect sabbaths; 16 unto the morrow of the seventh sabbath ye do number fifty days, and ye have brought near a new present to Jehovah; 17 out of your dwellings ye bring in bread of a wave-offering, two 'loaves', of two tenth deals of flour they are, 'with' yeast they are baken, first-'fruits' to Jehovah. 18 'And ye have brought near, besides the bread, seven lambs, perfect ones, sons of a year, and one bullock, a son of the herd, and two rams; they are a burnt-offering to Jehovah, with their present and their libations, a fire-offering of sweet fragrance to Jehovah. 19 'And ye have prepared one kid of the goats for a sin-offering, and two lambs, sons of a year, for a sacrifice of peace-offerings, 20 and the priest hath waved them, besides the bread of the first-'fruits'—a wave-offering before Jehovah, besides the two lambs; they are holy to Jehovah for the priest; 21 and ye have proclaimed on this self-same day: a holy convocation is to you, ye do no servile work—a statute age-during in all your dwellings, to your generations. 22 'And in your reaping the harvest of your land thou dost not complete the corner of thy field in thy reaping, and the gleaning of thy harvest thou dost not gather, to the poor and to the sojourner thou dost leave them; I Jehovah 'am' your God.'
23 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 24 'Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first of the month, ye have a sabbath, a memorial of shouting, a holy convocation; 25 ye do no servile work, and ye have brought near a fire-offering to Jehovah.' 26 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 27 'Only—on the tenth of this seventh month is a day of atonements; ye have a holy convocation, and ye have humbled yourselves, and have brought near a fire-offering to Jehovah; 28 and ye do no work in this self-same day, for it is a day of atonements, to make atonement for you, before Jehovah your God. 29 'For any person who is not humbled in this self-same day hath even been cut off from his people; 30 and any person who doth any work in this self-same day I have even destroyed that person from the midst of his people; 31 ye do no work—a statute age-during to your generations in all your dwellings. 32 It 'is' a sabbath of rest to you, and ye have humbled yourselves in the ninth of the month at even; from evening till evening ye do keep your sabbath.'
33 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 34 'Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, In the fifteenth day of this seventh month 'is' a feast of booths seven days to Jehovah; 35 on the first day 'is' a holy convocation, ye do no servile work, 36 seven days ye bring near a fire-offering to Jehovah, on the eighth day ye have a holy convocation, and ye have brought near a fire-offering to Jehovah; it 'is' a restraint, ye do no servile work. 37 'These 'are' appointed seasons of Jehovah, which ye proclaim holy convocations, to bring near a fire-offering to Jehovah, a burnt-offering, and a present, a sacrifice, and libations, a thing of a day in its day, 38 apart from the sabbaths of Jehovah, and apart from your gifts, and apart from all your vows, and apart from all your willing-offerings, which ye give to Jehovah. 39 'Only—in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, in your gathering the increase of the land, ye do keep the feast of Jehovah seven days; on the first day 'is' a sabbath, and on the eighth day a sabbath; 40 and ye have taken to yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palms, and boughs of thick trees, and willows of a brook, and have rejoiced before Jehovah your God seven days. 41 'And ye have kept it a feast to Jehovah, seven days in a year—a statute age-during to your generations; in the seventh month ye keep it a feast. 42 'In booths ye dwell seven days; all who are natives in Israel dwell in booths, 43 so that your generations do know that in booths I caused the sons of Israel to dwell; in my bringing them out of the land of Egypt; I, Jehovah, 'am' your God.' 44 And Moses speaketh 'concerning' the appointed seasons of Jehovah unto the sons of Israel.
