Holiness in Personal Conduct

19The LORD also said to Moses,H3068H1696H4872H559 2"Give the following instructions to the entire community of Israel. You must be holy because I, the LORD your God, am holy.H1696H5712H1121H3478H559H6918H3068H430H6918 3"Each of you must show great respect for your mother and father, and you must always observe my Sabbath days of rest. I am the LORD your God.H3372H376H517H1H8104H7676H3068H430 4"Do not put your trust in idols or make metal images of gods for yourselves. I am the LORD your God.H6437H457H6213H4541H430H3068H430 5"When you sacrifice a peace offering to the LORD, offer it properly so you will be accepted by God.H2076H2077H8002H3068H2076H7522 6The sacrifice must be eaten on the same day you offer it or on the next day. Whatever is left over until the third day must be completely burned up.H398H3117H2077H4283H3498H7992H3117H8313H784 7If any of the sacrifice is eaten on the third day, it will be contaminated, and I will not accept it.H398H398H7992H3117H6292H7521 8Anyone who eats it on the third day will be punished for defiling what is holy to the LORD and will be cut off from the community.H398H5375H5771H2490H6944H3068H5315H3772H5971 9"When you harvest the crops of your land, do not harvest the grain along the edges of your fields, and do not pick up what the harvesters drop.H7114H7105H776H3615H6285H7704H3950H3951H7105 10It is the same with your grape crop—do not strip every last bunch of grapes from the vines, and do not pick up the grapes that fall to the ground. Leave them for the poor and the foreigners living among you. I am the LORD your God.H5953H3754H3950H6528H3754H5800H6041H1616H3068H430 11"Do not steal. "Do not deceive or cheat one another.H1589H3584H8266H376H5997 12"Do not bring shame on the name of your God by using it to swear falsely. I am the LORD.H7650H8034H8267H2490H8034H430H3068 13"Do not defraud or rob your neighbor. "Do not make your hired workers wait until the next day to receive their pay.H6231H7453H1497H6468H7916H3885H1242 14"Do not insult the deaf or cause the blind to stumble. You must fear your God; I am the LORD.H7043H2795H5414H4383H6440H5787H3372H430H3068 15"Do not twist justice in legal matters by favoring the poor or being partial to the rich and powerful. Always judge people fairly.H6213H5766H4941H5375H6440H1800H1921H6440H1419H6664H8199H5997 16"Do not spread slanderous gossip among your people. "Do not stand idly by when your neighbor's life is threatened. I am the LORD.H3212H7400H5971H5975H1818H7453H3068 17"Do not nurse hatred in your heart for any of your relatives. Confront people directly so you will not be held guilty for their sin.H8130H251H3824H3198H3198H5997H5375H2399 18"Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against a fellow Israelite, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.H5358H5201H1121H5971H157H7453H3644H3068 19"You must obey all my decrees. "Do not mate two different kinds of animals. Do not plant your field with two different kinds of seed. Do not wear clothing woven from two different kinds of thread.H8104H2708H929H7250H3610H2232H7704H3610H899H3610H8162H5927 20"If a man has sex with a slave girl whose freedom has never been purchased but who is committed to become another man's wife, he must pay full compensation to her master. But since she is not a free woman, neither the man nor the woman will be put to death.H376H7901H2233H7902H802H8198H2778H376H6299H6299H2668H5414H1244H4191H2666 21The man, however, must bring a ram as a guilt offering and present it to the LORD at the entrance of the Tabernacle.H935H817H3068H6607H168H4150H352H817 22The priest will then purify him before the LORD with the ram of the guilt offering, and the man's sin will be forgiven.H3548H3722H352H817H6440H3068H2403H2398H2403H2398H5545 23"When you enter the land and plant fruit trees, leave the fruit unharvested for the first three years and consider it forbidden. Do not eat it.H935H776H5193H6086H3978H6188H6529H6188H6190H7969H8141H6189H398 24In the fourth year the entire crop must be consecrated to the LORD as a celebration of praise.H7243H8141H6529H6944H1974H3068 25Finally, in the fifth year you may eat the fruit. If you follow this pattern, your harvest will increase. I am the LORD your God.H2549H8141H398H6529H3254H8393H3068H430 26"Do not eat meat that has not been drained of its blood. "Do not practice fortune-telling or witchcraft.H398H1818H5172H6049 27"Do not trim off the hair on your temples or trim your beards.H5362H6285H7218H7843H6285H2206 28"Do not cut your bodies for the dead, and do not mark your skin with tattoos. I am the LORD.H5414H3793H8296H1320H5315H5414H7085H3068 29"Do not defile your daughter by making her a prostitute, or the land will be filled with prostitution and wickedness.H2490H1323H2181H776H2181H776H4390H2154 30"Keep my Sabbath days of rest, and show reverence toward my sanctuary. I am the LORD.H8104H7676H3372H4720H3068 31"Do not defile yourselves by turning to mediums or to those who consult the spirits of the dead. I am the LORD your God.H6437H178H1245H3049H2930H3068H430 32"Stand up in the presence of the elderly, and show respect for the aged. Fear your God. I am the LORD.H6965H6440H7872H1921H6440H2205H3372H430H3068 33"Do not take advantage of foreigners who live among you in your land.H1616H1481H776H3238 34Treat them like native-born Israelites, and love them as you love yourself. Remember that you were once foreigners living in the land of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.H1616H1481H249H157H1616H776H4714H3068H430 35"Do not use dishonest standards when measuring length, weight, or volume.H6213H5766H4941H4060H4948H4884 36Your scales and weights must be accurate. Your containers for measuring dry materials or liquids must be accurate. I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt.H6664H3976H6664H68H6664H374H6664H1969H3068H430H3318H776H4714 37"You must be careful to keep all of my decrees and regulations by putting them into practice. I am the LORD."H8104H2708H4941H6213H3068
