1Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
2“Speak to all the assembly of the people of Israel and say to them, 'You must be holy, for I Yahweh your God am holy.
3Everyone must respect his mother and his father, and you must keep my Sabbaths. I am Yahweh your God.
4Do not turn to worthless idols, nor make for yourselves gods out of metal. I am Yahweh your God.
5When you offer a sacrifice of fellowship offerings to Yahweh, you must offer it that you may be accepted.
6It must be eaten the same day you offer it, or on the next day. If anything remains until the third day, it must be burned up with fire.
7If it is eaten at all on the third day, it is unclean meat; it must not be accepted,
8and everyone who eats it must carry his own guilt because he has defiled what is holy to Yahweh, and that person must be cut off from his people.
9When you reap the harvest of your land, you must not completely reap the corners of your field, neither will you gather all the produce of your harvest.
10You must not gather every grape from your vineyard, nor gather the grapes that have fallen on the ground in your vineyard. You must leave them for the poor and for the foreigner. I am Yahweh your God.
11Do not steal. Do not lie. Do not deceive each other.
12Do not swear by my name falsely and profane the name of your God. I am Yahweh.
13Do not oppress your neighbor or rob him. The wages of a hired servant must not stay with you all night until the morning.
14Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind. Instead, you must fear your God. I am Yahweh.
15Do not cause judgment to be false. You must not show favoritism to someone because he is poor, and you must not show favoritism to someone because he is important. Instead, judge your neighbor righteously.
16Do not walk around spreading slander among your people, but seek to protect your neighbor's life. I am Yahweh.
17Do not hate your brother in your heart. You must honestly rebuke your neighbor so as not to share in sin because of him.
18Do not take vengeance or hold any grudge against any of your people, but instead love your neighbor as yourself. I am Yahweh.

19You must keep my commands. Do not try to breed your animals with different kinds of other animals. Do not mix two different kinds of seeds when planting your field. Do not wear clothing made of two kinds of material mixed together.
20Whoever sleeps with a slave girl who is promised to a husband, but who has not been ransomed or given her freedom, they must be punished. They must not be put to death because she was not free.
21A man must bring his guilt offering to Yahweh to the entrance to the tent of meeting—a ram as a guilt offering.
22Then the priest will make atonement for him with the ram for the guilt offering before Yahweh, for the sin that he has committed. Then the sin which he has committed will be forgiven.
23When you come into the land and have planted all kinds of trees for food, then you must regard the fruit they produce as forbidden to be eaten. The fruit must be forbidden to you for three years. It must not be eaten.
24But in the fourth year all the fruit will be holy, an offering of praise to Yahweh.
25In the fifth you may eat the fruit, having waited so that the trees might produce more. I am Yahweh your God.
26Do not eat any meat with blood still in it. Do not consult spirits about the future, and do not seek to control others by supernatural powers.
27You will not round off the corners of the hair on the sides of your head or shave off the edge of your beard.
28Do not cut your body for the dead or put tattoo marks on your body. I am Yahweh.
29Do not disgrace your daughter by making her a prostitute, or the nation will fall to prostitution and the land will become full of wickedness.
30You must keep my Sabbaths and honor the sanctuary of my tabernacle. I am Yahweh.
31Do not turn to those who talk with the dead or with spirits. Do not seek them out, or they will defile you. I am Yahweh your God.
32You must rise before the gray-headed person and honor the presence of an old man. You must fear your God. I am Yahweh.
33If a foreigner lives among you in your land, you must not do him any wrong.
34The foreigner who lives with you must be to you like the native-born Israelite who lives among you, and you must love him as yourself, because you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. I am Yahweh your God.
35Do not use false measures when measuring length, weight, or quantity.
36You must use just scales, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin. I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt.

37You must obey all my decrees and all my laws, and do them. I am Yahweh.'”
