002:023:001
Thou shalt not raise a false report:
put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.


002:023:002
Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil;
neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:


002:023:003
Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.


002:023:004
If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his ass going astray,
thou shalt surely bring it back to him again.


002:023:005
If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his burden,
and wouldest forbear to help him,
thou shalt surely help with him.


002:023:006
Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.


002:023:007
Keep thee far from a false matter;
and the innocent and righteous slay thou not:
for I will not justify the wicked.


002:023:008
And thou shalt take no gift:
for the gift blindeth the wise,
and perverteth the words of the righteous.


002:023:009
Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger:
for ye know the heart of a stranger,
seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.


002:023:010
And six years thou shalt sow thy land,
and shalt gather in the fruits thereof:


002:023:011
But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still;
that the poor of thy people may eat:
and what they leave the beasts of the field shall eat.
In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard,
and with thy oliveyard.


002:023:012
Six days thou shalt do thy work,
and on the seventh day thou shalt rest:
that thine ox and thine ass may rest,
and the son of thy handmaid,
and the stranger,
may be refreshed.


002:023:013
And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect:
and make no mention of the name of other gods,
neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.


002:023:014
Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.


002:023:015
Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread:
(thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days,
as I commanded thee,
in the time appointed of the month Abib;
for in it thou camest out from Egypt:
and none shall appear before me empty:)


002:023:016
And the feast of harvest,
the firstfruits of thy labours,
which thou hast sown in the field:
and the feast of ingathering,
which is in the end of the year,
when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.


002:023:017
Three items in the year all thy males shall appear before the LORD God.


002:023:018
Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread;
neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain until the morning.


002:023:019
The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the LORD thy God.
Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.


002:023:020
Behold,
I send an Angel before thee,
to keep thee in the way,
and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.


002:023:021
Beware of him,
and obey his voice,
provoke him not;
for he will not pardon your transgressions:
for my name is in him.


002:023:022
But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice,
and do all that I speak;
then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies,
and an adversary unto thine adversaries.


002:023:023
For mine Angel shall go before thee,
and bring thee in unto the Amorites,
and the Hittites,
and the Perizzites,
and the Canaanites,
the Hivites,
and the Jebusites:
and I will cut them off.


002:023:024
Thou shalt not bow down to their gods,
nor serve them,
nor do after their works:
but thou shalt utterly overthrow them,
and quite break down their images.


002:023:025
And ye shall serve the LORD your God,
and he shall bless thy bread,
and thy water;
and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.


002:023:026
There shall nothing cast their young,
nor be barren,
in thy land:
the number of thy days I will fulfil.


002:023:027
I will send my fear before thee,
and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come,
and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.


002:023:028
And I will send hornets before thee,
which shall drive out the Hivite,
the Canaanite,
and the Hittite,
from before thee.


002:023:029
I will not drive them out from before thee in one year;
lest the land become desolate,
and the beast of the field multiply against thee.


002:023:030
By little and little I will drive them out from before thee,
until thou be increased,
and inherit the land.


002:023:031
And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines,
and from the desert unto the river:
for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand;
and thou shalt drive them out before thee.


002:023:032
Thou shalt make no covenant with them,
nor with their gods.


002:023:033
They shall not dwell in thy land,
lest they make thee sin against me:
for if thou serve their gods,
it will surely be a snare unto thee.
