Genesis

1:1 In the beginning ELOHIM created the heaven and the earth.

1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of ELOHIM moved on the face of the waters.

1:3 And ELOHIM said, Let there be light: and there was light.

1:4 And ELOHIM saw the light, that it was good: and ELOHIM divided the light from the darkness.

1:5 And ELOHIM called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

1:6 And ELOHIM said, Let there be a firmament in the middle of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

1:7 And ELOHIM made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

1:8 And ELOHIM called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

1:9 And ELOHIM said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together to one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

1:10 And ELOHIM called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and ELOHIM saw that it was good.

1:11 And ELOHIM said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth: and it was so.

1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and ELOHIM saw that it was good.

1:13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

1:14 And ELOHIM said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light on the earth: and it was so.

1:16 And ELOHIM made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

1:17 And ELOHIM set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light on the earth,

1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and ELOHIM saw that it was good.

1:19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

1:20 And ELOHIM said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that has life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

1:21 And ELOHIM created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and ELOHIM saw that it was good.

1:22 And ELOHIM blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

1:24 And ELOHIM said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

1:25 And ELOHIM made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the earth after his kind: and ELOHIM saw that it was good.

1:26 And ELOHIM said, Let us 3:22; 11:7 make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. http://buchererpianos.ch/the-two-Adams-in-Genesis-one-and-two.html

1:27 So ELOHIM created man in his own image, in the image of ELOHIM created he him; male and female created he them.

1:28 And ELOHIM blessed them, and ELOHIM said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.

1:29 And ELOHIM said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

1:30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

1:31 And ELOHIM saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.


2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2:2 And on the seventh day ELOHIM ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

2:3 And ELOHIM blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which ELOHIM created and made.

2:4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that YEHOVAH ELOHIM made the earth and the heavens,

2:5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for YEHOVAH ELOHIM had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

2:6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

2:7 And YEHOVAH ELOHIM formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

2:8 And YEHOVAH ELOHIM planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

2:9 And out of the ground made YEHOVAH ELOHIM to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the middle of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it was parted, and became into four heads.

2:11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasses the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

2:12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

2:13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasses the whole land of Ethiopia.

2:14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goes toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

2:15 And YEHOVAH ELOHIM took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

2:16 And YEHOVAH ELOHIM commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat:

2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.

2:18 And YEHOVAH ELOHIM said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

2:19 And out of the ground YEHOVAH ELOHIM formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them: and whatever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

2:21 And YEHOVAH ELOHIM caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

2:22 And the rib, which YEHOVAH ELOHIM had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her to the man.

2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall join to his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.


3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which YEHOVAH ELOHIM had made. And he said to the woman, Yes, has ELOHIM said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

3:2 And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, ELOHIM has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.

3:4 And the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die:

3:5 For ELOHIM does know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as elohims, knowing good and evil.

3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also to her husband with her; and he did eat.

3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

3:8 And they heard the voice of YEHOVAH ELOHIM walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of YEHOVAH ELOHIM among the trees of the garden.

3:9 And YEHOVAH ELOHIM called to Adam, and said to him, Where are you?

3:10 And he said, I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

3:11 And he said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded you that you should not eat?

3:12 And the man said, The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

3:13 And YEHOVAH ELOHIM said to the woman, What is this that you have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

3:14 And YEHOVAH ELOHIM said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; on your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life:

3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.

3:16 To the woman he said, I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in sorrow you shall bring forth children; and your desire shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over you.

3:17 And to Adam he said, Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it: cursed is the ground for your sake; in sorrow shall you eat of it all the days of your life;

3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to you; and you shall eat the herb of the field;

3:19 In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread, till you return to the ground; for out of it were you taken: for dust you are, and to dust shall you return.

3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

3:21 To Adam also and to his wife did YEHOVAH ELOHIM make coats of skins, and clothed them.

3:22 And YEHOVAH ELOHIM said, Behold, the man is become as one of us 1:26; 11:7, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever:

3:23 Therefore YEHOVAH ELOHIM sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from from where he was taken.

3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.


4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bore Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from YEHOVAH.

4:2 And she again bore his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

4:3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering to YEHOVAH.

4:4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of the fat thereof. And YEHOVAH had respect to Abel and to his offering:

4:5 But to Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

4:6 And YEHOVAH said to Cain, Why are you wroth? and why is your countenance fallen?

4:7 If you do well, shall you not be accepted? and if you do not well, sin lies at the door. And to you shall be his desire, and you shall rule over him.

4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

4:9 And YEHOVAH said to Cain, Where is Abel your brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

4:10 And he said, What have you done? the voice of your brother's blood cries to me from the ground.

4:11 And now are you cursed from the earth, which has opened her mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand;

4:12 When you till the ground, it shall not from now on yield to you her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shall you be in the earth.

4:13 And Cain said to YEHOVAH, My punishment is greater than I can bear.

4:14 Behold, you have driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from your face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that everyone that finds me shall slay me.

4:15 And YEHOVAH said to him, Therefore whoever slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And YEHOVAH set a mark on Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of YEHOVAH, and dwelled in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bore Enoch: and he built a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

4:18 And to Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.

4:19 And Lamech took to him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.

4:20 And Adah bore Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.

4:21 And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.

4:22 And Zillah, she also bore Tubalcain, an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.

4:23 And Lamech said to his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; you wives of Lamech, listen to my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.

4:24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.

4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bore a son, and called his name Seth: For ELOHIM, said she, has appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call on the name of YEHOVAH.


5:1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that ELOHIM created man, in the likeness of ELOHIM made he him;

5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

5:3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:

5:4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:

5:5 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.

5:6 And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:

5:7 And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters:

5:8 And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he died.

5:9 And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:

5:10 And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters:

5:11 And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he died.

5:12 And Cainan lived seventy years and begat Mahalaleel:

5:13 And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begat sons and daughters:

5:14 And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died.

5:15 And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:

5:16 And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters:

5:17 And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he died.

5:18 And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:

5:19 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

5:20 And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.

5:21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

5:22 And Enoch walked with ELOHIM after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

5:23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

5:24 And Enoch walked with ELOHIM: and he was not; for ELOHIM took him.

5:25 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech.

5:26 And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:

5:27 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.

5:28 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:

5:29 And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which YEHOVAH has cursed.

5:30 And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters:

5:31 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died.

5:32 And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth.


6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them,

6:2 That the sons of ELOHIM saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

6:3 And YEHOVAH said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of ELOHIM came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

6:5 And ELOHIM saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6:6 And it repented YEHOVAH that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

6:7 And YEHOVAH said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repents me that I have made them.

6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of YEHOVAH.

6:9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with ELOHIM.

6:10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

6:11 The earth also was corrupt before ELOHIM, and the earth was filled with violence.

6:12 And ELOHIM looked on the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way on the earth.

6:13 And ELOHIM said to Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

6:14 Make you an ark of gopher wood; rooms shall you make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and without with pitch.

6:15 And this is the fashion which you shall make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

6:16 A window shall you make to the ark, and in a cubit shall you finish it above; and the door of the ark shall you set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shall you make it.

6:17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters on the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and everything that is in the earth shall die.

6:18 But with you will I establish my covenant; and you shall come into the ark, you, and your sons, and your wife, and your sons' wives with you.

6:19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shall you bring into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.

6:20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come to you, to keep them alive.

6:21 And take you to you of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to you; and it shall be for food for you, and for them.

6:22 Thus did Noah; according to all that ELOHIM commanded him, so did he.


7:1 And YEHOVAH said to Noah, Come you and all your house into the ark; for you have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

7:2 Of every clean beast you shall take to you by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

7:3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive on the face of all the earth.

7:4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

7:5 And Noah did according to all that YEHOVAH commanded him.

7:6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was on the earth.

7:7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.

7:8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of everything that creeps on the earth,

7:9 There went in two and two to Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as ELOHIM had commanded Noah.

7:10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were on the earth.

7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

7:12 And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.

7:13 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;

7:14 They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.

7:15 And they went in to Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life.

7:16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as ELOHIM had commanded him: and YEHOVAH shut him in.

7:17 And the flood was forty days on the earth; and the waters increased, and bore up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.

7:18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly on the earth; and the ark went on the face of the waters.

7:19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.

7:20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

7:21 And all flesh died that moved on the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man:

7:22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

7:23 And every living substance was destroyed which was on the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

7:24 And the waters prevailed on the earth an hundred and fifty days.


8:1 And ELOHIM remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and ELOHIM made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged;

8:2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

8:3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat.

8:5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.

8:6 And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made:

8:7 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.

8:8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;

8:9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned to him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in to him into the ark.

8:10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;

8:11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, see, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.

8:12 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again to him any more.

8:13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.

8:14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.

8:15 And ELOHIM spoke to Noah, saying,

8:16 Go forth of the ark, you, and your wife, and your sons, and your sons' wives with you.

8:17 Bring forth with you every living thing that is with you, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creeps on the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply on the earth.

8:18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:

8:19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatever creeps on the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.

8:20 And Noah built an altar to YEHOVAH; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

8:21 And YEHOVAH smelled a sweet smell; and YEHOVAH said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more everything living, as I have done.

8:22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.


9:1 And ELOHIM blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

9:2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be on every beast of the earth, and on every fowl of the air, on all that moves on the earth, and on all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

9:3 Every moving thing that lives shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

9:4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall you not eat.

9:5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.

9:6 Whoever sheds man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of ELOHIM made he man.

9:7 And you, be you fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

9:8 And ELOHIM spoke to Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

9:9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;

9:10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.

9:11 And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

9:12 And ELOHIM said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

 

 

9:14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

9:15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

9:16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look on it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between ELOHIM and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.

9:17 And ELOHIM said to Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.

9:18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.

9:19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth covered.

9:20 And Noah began to be an farmer, and he planted a vineyard:

9:21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.

9:22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers without.

9:23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.

9:24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him.

9:25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be to his brothers.

9:26 And he said, Blessed be YEHOVAH ELOHEY of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

9:27 ELOHIM shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

9:28 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.

9:29 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died.


10:1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and to them were sons born after the flood.

10:2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

10:3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

10:4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

10:5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; everyone after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

10:6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

10:7 And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.

10:8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.

10:9 He was a mighty hunter before YEHOVAH: why it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before YEHOVAH.

10:10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

10:11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and built Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,

10:12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.

10:13 And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,

10:14 And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, out of whom came Philistim, and Caphtorim.

10:15 And Canaan begat Sidon his first born, and Heth,

10:16 And the Jebusite Jerusalem and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,

10:17 And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,

10:18 And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.

10:19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as you come to Gerar, to Gaza; as you go, to Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even to Lasha.

10:20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.

10:21 To Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber Hebrew, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.

10:22 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.

10:23 And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

10:24 And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.

10:25 And to Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.

10:26 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,

10:27 And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,

10:28 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,

10:29 And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.

10:30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as you go to Sephar a mount of the east.

10:31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.

10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.


11:1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

11:2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelled there.

11:3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.

11:4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach to heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad on the face of the whole earth.

11:5 And YEHOVAH came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built.

11:6 And YEHOVAH said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

11:7 Go to, let us 1:26; 3:22 go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

11:8 So YEHOVAH scattered them abroad from there on the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

11:9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because YEHOVAH did there confound the language of all the earth: and from there did YEHOVAH scatter them abroad on the face of all the earth.

11:10 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:

11:11 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:12 And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:

11:13 And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:14 And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:

11:15 And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:16 And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:

11:17 And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:18 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:

11:19 And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:20 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:

11:21 And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:22 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:

11:23 And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:24 And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:

11:25 And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:26 And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

11:27 Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.

11:28 And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.

11:29 And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.

11:30 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.

11:31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran, and dwelled there.

11:32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.


12:1 Now YEHOVAH had said to Abram, Get you out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father's house, to a land that I will show you:

12:2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing:

12:3 And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed. Rom. 11

12:4 So Abram departed, as YEHOVAH had spoken to him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

12:5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

12:6 And Abram passed through the land to the place of Sichem, to the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

12:7 And YEHOVAH appeared to Abram, and said, To your seed will I give this land: and there built he an altar to YEHOVAH, who appeared to him.

12:8 And he removed from there to a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he built an altar to YEHOVAH, and called on the name of YEHOVAH.

12:9 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.

12:10 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.

12:11 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that you are a fair woman to look on:

12:12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see you, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save you alive.

12:13 Say, I pray you, you are my sister: that it may be well with me for your sake; and my soul shall live because of you.

12:14 And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.

12:15 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.

12:16 And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.

12:17 And YEHOVAH plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.

12:18 And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that you have done to me? why did you not tell me that she was your wife?

12:19 Why said you, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold your wife, take her, and go your way.

12:20 And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.


13:1 And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south.

13:2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

13:3 And he went on his journeys from the south even to Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai;

13:4 To the place of the altar, which he had make there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of YEHOVAH.

13:5 And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.

13:6 And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.

13:7 And there was a strife between the herdsmen of Abram's cattle and the herdsmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.

13:8 And Abram said to Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray you, between me and you, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we be brothers.

13:9 Is not the whole land before you? separate yourself, I pray you, from me: if you will take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if you depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.

13:10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before YEHOVAH destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of YEHOVAH, like the land of Egypt, as you come to Zoar.

13:11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.

13:12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.

13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before YEHOVAH exceedingly.

13:14 And YEHOVAH said to Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now your eyes, and look from the place where you are northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:

13:15 For all the land which you see, to you will I give it, and to your seed forever.

13:16 And I will make your seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall your seed also be numbered.

13:17 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it to you.

13:18 Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelled in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar to YEHOVAH.


14:1 And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations;

14:2 That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar.

14:3 All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea.

14:4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.

14:5 And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emins in Shaveh Kiriathaim,

14:6 And the Horites in their mount Seir, to Elparan, which is by the wilderness.

14:7 And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelled in Hazezontamar.

14:8 And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela the same is Zoar; and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim;

14:9 With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with five.

14:10 And the vale of Siddim was full of slime pits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain.

14:11 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way.

14:12 And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelled in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.

14:13 And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelled in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.

14:14 And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them to Dan.

14:15 And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them to Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.

14:16 And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.

14:17 And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale.

14:18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of ELYON ELOHIM.

14:19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of ELYON ELOHIM, possessor of heaven and earth:

14:20 And blessed be ELYON ELOHIM, which has delivered your enemies into your hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

14:21 And the king of Sodom said to Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to yourself.

14:22 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up my hand to YEHOVAH, ELYON ELOHIM, the possessor of heaven and earth,

14:23 That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is yours, lest you should say, I have made Abram rich:

14:24 Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.


15:1 After these things the word of YEHOVAH came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am your shield, and your exceeding great reward.

15:2 And Abram said, ADONAY YEHOVAH what will you give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?

15:3 And Abram said, Behold, to me you have given no seed: and, see, one born in my house is my heir.

15:4 And, behold, the word of YEHOVAH came to him, saying, This shall not be your heir; but he that shall come forth out of your own bowels shall be your heir.

15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if you be able to number them: and he said to him, So shall your seed be.

15:6 And he believed in YEHOVAH; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

15:7 And he said to him, I am YEHOVAH that brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it.

15:8 And he said, ADONAY YEHOVAH, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?

15:9 And he said to him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.

15:10 And he took to him all these, and divided them in the middle, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.

15:11 And when the fowls came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.

15:12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell on Abram; and, see, an horror of great darkness fell on him.

15:13 And he said to Abram, Know of a surety that your seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not their's, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;

15:14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.

15:15 And you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried in a good old age.

15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come here again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.

15:17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.

15:18 In the same day YEHOVAH made a covenant with Abram, saying, To your seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates:

15:19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,

15:20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,

15:21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.

16:1 Now Sarai Abram's wife bore him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.


16:2 And Sarai said to Abram, Behold now, YEHOVAH has restrained me from bearing: I pray you, go in to my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram listened to the voice of Sarai.

16:3 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelled ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.

16:4 And he went in to Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.

16:5 And Sarai said to Abram, My wrong be on you: I have given my maid into your bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: YEHOVAH judge between me and you.

16:6 But Abram said to Sarai, Behold, your maid is in your hand; do to her as it pleases you. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face.

16:7 And the angel of YEHOVAH found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.

16:8 And he said, Hagar, Sarai's maid, from where came you? and where will you go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.

16:9 And the angel of YEHOVAH said to her, Return to your mistress, and submit yourself under her hands.

16:10 And the angel of YEHOVAH said to her, I will multiply your seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.

16:11 And the angel of YEHOVAH said to her, Behold, you are with child and shall bear a son, and shall call his name Ishmael; because YEHOVAH has heard your affliction.

16:12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brothers.

16:13 And she called the name of YEHOVAH that spoke to her, You ELOHIM see me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that sees me?

16:14 Why the well was called Beerlahairoi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.

16:15 And Hagar bore Abram a son: and Abram called his son's name, which Hagar bore, Ishmael.

16:16 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram.


17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, YEHOVAH appeared to Abram, and said to him, I am EL SHADDAI; walk before me, and be you perfect.

17:2 And I will make my covenant between me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.

17:3 And Abram fell on his face: and ELOHIM talked with him, saying,

17:4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations.

17:5 Neither shall your name any more be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made you.

17:6 And I will make you exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come out of you.

17:7 And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your seed after you in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be an ELOHIM to you, and to your seed after you.

17:8 And I will give to you, and to your seed after you, the land wherein you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be ELOHEIHEM.

17:9 And ELOHIM said to Abraham, You shall keep my covenant therefore, you, and your seed after you in their generations.

17:10 This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your seed after you; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.

17:11 And you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant between me and you.

17:12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of your seed.

17:13 He that is born in your house, and he that is bought with your money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

17:14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.

17:15 And ELOHIM said to Abraham, As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.

17:16 And I will bless her, and give you a son also of her: yes, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.

17:17 Then Abraham fell on his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born to him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?

17:18 And Abraham said to ELOHIM, O that Ishmael might live before you!

17:19 And ELOHIM said, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son indeed; and you shall call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

17:20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

17:21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear to you at this set time in the next year.

17:22 And he left off talking with him, and ELOHIM went up from Abraham.

17:23 And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as ELOHIM had said to him.

17:24 And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.

17:25 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.

17:26 In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son.

17:27 And all the men of his house, born in the house, and bought with money of the stranger, were circumcised with him.


18:1 And YEHOVAH appeared to him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;

18:2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, see, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,

18:3 And said, ADONAY, if now I have found favor in your sight, pass not away, I pray you, from your servant:

18:4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:

18:5 And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort you your hearts; after that you shall pass on: for therefore are you come to your servant. And they said, So do, as you have said.

18:6 And Abraham hastened into the tent to Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes on the hearth.

18:7 And Abraham ran to the herd, and fetched a calf tender and good, and gave it to a young man; and he hurried to dress it.

18:8 And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

18:9 And they said to him, Where is Sarah your wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.

18:10 And he said, I will certainly return to you according to the time of life; and, see, Sarah your wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

18:11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

18:12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?

18:13 And YEHOVAH said to Abraham, Why did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?

18:14 Is any thing too hard for YEHOVAH? At the time appointed I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

18:15 Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, No; but you did laugh.

18:16 And the men rose up from there, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.

18:17 And YEHOVAH said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;

18:18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of YEHOVAH, to do justice and judgment; that YEHOVAH may bring on Abraham that which he has spoken of him.

18:20 And YEHOVAH said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;

18:21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come to me; and if not, I will know.

18:22 And the men turned their faces from there, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before YEHOVAH.

18:23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Will you also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

18:24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: will you also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?

18:25 That be far from you to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from you: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

18:26 And YEHOVAH said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.

18:27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken on me to speak to ADONAY, which am but dust and ashes:

18:28 Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: will you destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

18:29 And he spoke to him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's sake.

18:30 And he said to him, Oh let not ADONAY be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

18:31 And he said, Behold now, I have taken on me to speak to ADONAY: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake.

18:32 And he said, Oh let not ADONAY be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.

18:33 And YEHOVAH went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned to his place.


19:1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

19:2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and you shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, No; but we will abide in the street all night.

19:3 And he pressed on them greatly; and they turned in to him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

19:4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

19:5 And they called to Lot, and said to him, Where are the men which came in to you this night? bring them out to us, that we may know them.

19:6 And Lot went out at the door to them, and shut the door after him,

19:7 And said, I pray you, brothers, do not so wickedly.

19:8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out to you, and do you to them as is good in your eyes: only to these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

19:9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with you, than with them. And they pressed sore on the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.

19:10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.

19:11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

19:12 And the men said to Lot, Have you here any besides? son in law, and your sons, and your daughters, and whatever you have in the city, bring them out of this place:

19:13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of YEHOVAH; and YEHOVAH has sent us to destroy it.

19:14 And Lot went out, and spoke to his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for YEHOVAH will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked to his sons in law.

19:15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take your wife, and your two daughters, which are here; lest you be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

19:16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold on his hand, and on the hand of his wife, and on the hand of his two daughters; YEHOVAH being merciful to him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

19:17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for your life; look not behind you, neither stay you in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest you be consumed.

19:18 And Lot said to them, Oh, not so, Adonay:

19:19 Behold now, your servant has found grace in your sight, and you have magnified your mercy, which you have showed to me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:

19:20 Behold now, this city is near to flee to, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, is it not a little one? and my soul shall live.

19:21 And he said to him, See, I have accepted you concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which you have spoken.

19:22 Haste you, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till you be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

19:23 The sun was risen on the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.

19:24 Then YEHOVAH rained on Sodom and on Gomorrah brimstone and fire from YEHOVAH out of heaven;

19:25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew on the ground.

19:26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

19:27 And Abraham got up early in the morning to the place where he stood before YEHOVAH:

19:28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, see, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

19:29 And it came to pass, when ELOHIM destroyed the cities of the plain, that ELOHIM remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the middle of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelled.

19:30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelled in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelled in a cave, he and his two daughters.

19:31 And the firstborn said to the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in to us after the manner of all the earth:

19:32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

19:33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

19:34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said to the younger, Behold, I lay last night with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go you in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

19:35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

19:36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

19:37 And the first born bore a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites to this day.

19:38 And the younger, she also bore a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon to this day.


20:1 And Abraham journeyed from there toward the south country, and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar.

20:2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.

20:3 But ELOHIM came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, you are but a dead man, for the woman which you have taken; for she is a man's wife.

20:4 But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, ADONAY, will you slay also a righteous nation?

20:5 Said he not to me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocence of my hands have I done this.

20:6 And ELOHIM said to him in a dream, Yes, I know that you did this in the integrity of your heart; for I also withheld you from sinning against me: therefore suffered I you not to touch her.

20:7 Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for you, and you shall live: and if you restore her not, know you that you shall surely die, you, and all that are yours.

20:8 Therefore Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his servants, and told all these things in their ears: and the men were sore afraid.

20:9 Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said to him, What have you done to us? and what have I offended you, that you have brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? you have done deeds to me that ought not to be done.

20:10 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What saw you, that you have done this thing?

20:11 And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of ELOHIM is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife's sake.

20:12 And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.

20:13 And it came to pass, when ELOHIM caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said to her, This is your kindness which you shall show to me; at every place where we shall come, say of me, He is my brother.

20:14 And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and womenservants, and gave them to Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife.

20:15 And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before you: dwell where it pleases you.

20:16 And to Sarah he said, Behold, I have given your brother a thousand pieces of silver: behold, he is to you a covering of the eyes, to all that are with you, and with all other: thus she was reproved.

20:17 So Abraham prayed to ELOHIM: and ELOHIM healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bore children.

20:18 For YEHOVAH had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.


21:1 And YEHOVAH visited Sarah as he had said, and YEHOVAH did to Sarah as he had spoken.

21:2 For Sarah conceived, and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which ELOHIM had spoken to him.

21:3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born to him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac.

21:4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as ELOHIM had commanded him.

21:5 And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born to him.

21:6 And Sarah said, ELOHIM has made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.

21:7 And she said, Who would have said to Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age.

21:8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.

21:9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born to Abraham, mocking.

21:10 Why she said to Abraham, Cast out this female slave and her son: for the son of this female slave shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.

21:11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son.

21:12 And ELOHIM said to Abraham, Let it not be grievous in your sight because of the lad, and because of your female slave; in all that Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac shall your seed be called.

21:13 And also of the son of the female slave will I make a nation, because he is your seed.

21:14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.

21:15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs.

21:16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bow shot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.

21:17 And ELOHIM heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of ELOHIM called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, What ails you, Hagar? fear not; for ELOHIM has heard the voice of the lad where he is.

21:18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in your hand; for I will make him a great nation.

21:19 And ELOHIM opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.

21:20 And ELOHIM was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelled in the wilderness, and became an archer.

21:21 And he dwelled in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.

21:22 And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phichol the chief captain of his host spoke to Abraham, saying, ELOHIM is with you in all that you do:

21:23 Now therefore swear to me here by ELOHIM that you will not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son's son: but according to the kindness that I have done to you, you shall do to me, and to the land wherein you have sojourned.

21:24 And Abraham said, I will swear.

21:25 And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which Abimelech's servants had violently taken away.

21:26 And Abimelech said, I know not who has done this thing; neither did you tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but to day.

21:27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them to Abimelech; and both of them made a covenant.

21:28 And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.

21:29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs which you have set by themselves?

21:30 And he said, For these seven ewe lambs shall you take of my hand, that they may be a witness to me, that I have dig this well.

21:31 Why he called that place Beersheba; because there they swore both of them.

21:32 Thus they made a covenant at Beersheba: then Abimelech rose up, and Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the Philistines.

21:33 And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba, and called there on the name of YEHOVAH, the everlasting ELOHIM.

21:34 And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines' land many days.


22:1 And it came to pass after these things, that ELOHIM did tempt Abraham, and said to him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

22:2 And he said, Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and get you into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I will tell you of.

22:3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and split the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went to the place of which ELOHIM had told him.

22:4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.

22:5 And Abraham said to his young men, Abide you here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.

22:6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it on Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.

22:7 And Isaac spoke to Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?

22:8 And Abraham said, My son, ELOHIM will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.

22:9 And they came to the place which ELOHIM had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar on the wood.

22:10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

22:11 And the angel of YEHOVAH called to him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.

22:12 And he said, Lay not your hand on the lad, neither do you any thing to him: for now I know that you fear ELOHIM, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son from me.

22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

22:14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of YEHOVAH it shall be seen.

22:15 And the angel of YEHOVAH called to Abraham out of heaven the second time,

22:16 And said, By myself have I sworn, said YEHOVAH, for because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son:

22:17 That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is on the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

22:18 And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed my voice.

22:19 So Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelled at Beersheba.

22:20 And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she has also born children to your brother Nahor;

22:21 Huz his firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram,

22:22 And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.

22:23 And Bethuel begat Rebekah: these eight Milcah did bear to Nahor, Abraham's brother.

22:24 And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she bore also Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.


23:1 And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: these were the years of the life of Sarah.

23:2 And Sarah died in Kirjatharba; the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan: and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.

23:3 And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spoke to the sons of Heth, saying,

23:4 I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a possession of a burial plot with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.

23:5 And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying to him,

23:6 Hear us, Adoni: you are a mighty prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchers bury your dead; none of us shall withhold from you his sepulcher, but that you may bury your dead.

23:7 And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth.

23:8 And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind that I should bury my dead out of my sight; hear me, and entreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar,

23:9 That he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he has, which is in the end of his field; for as much money as it is worth he shall give it me for a possession of a burial plot among you.

23:10 And Ephron dwelled among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, even of all that went in at the gate of his city, saying,

23:11 No, Adoni, hear me: the field give I you, and the cave that is therein, I give it you; in the presence of the sons of my people give I it you: bury your dead.

23:12 And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land.

23:13 And he spoke to Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying, But if you will give it, I pray you, hear me: I will give you money for the field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead there.

23:14 And Ephron answered Abraham, saying to him,

23:15 Adoni, listen to me: the land is worth four hundred shekels of silver; what is that between me and you? bury therefore your dead.

23:16 And Abraham listened to Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant.

23:17 And the field of Ephron which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all the borders round about, were made sure

23:18 To Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city.

23:19 And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre: the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan.

23:20 And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure to Abraham for a possession of a burial plot by the sons of Heth.


24:1 And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and YEHOVAH had blessed Abraham in all things.

24:2 And Abraham said to his oldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray you, your hand under my thigh:

24:3 And I will make you swear by YEHOVAH, the ELOHEY of heaven, and the ELOHEY of the earth, that you shall not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:

24:4 But you shall go to my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife to my son Isaac.

24:5 And the servant said to him, Peradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me to this land: must I needs bring your son again to the land from from where you came?

24:6 And Abraham said to him, Beware you that you bring not my son thither again.

24:7 YEHOVAH ELOHEY of heaven, which took me from my father's house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spoke to me, and that swore to me, saying, To your seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before you, and you shall take a wife to my son from there.

24:8 And if the woman will not be willing to follow you, then you shall be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again.

24:9 And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and swore to him concerning that matter.

24:10 And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master, and departed; for all the goods of his master were in his hand: and he arose, and went to Mesopotamia, to the city of Nahor.

24:11 And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of water at the time of the evening, even the time that women go out to draw water.

24:12 And he said YEHOVAH ELOHEY of my master Abraham, I pray you, send me good speed this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham.

24:13 Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water:

24:14 And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let down your pitcher, I pray you, that I may drink; and she shall say, Drink, and I will give your camels drink also: let the same be she that you have appointed for your servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that you have showed kindness to my master.

24:15 And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher on her shoulder.

24:16 And the damsel was very fair to look on, a virgin, neither had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up.

24:17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray you, drink a little water of your pitcher.

24:18 And she said, Drink, Adoni: and she hurried, and let down her pitcher on her hand, and gave him drink.

24:19 And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw water for your camels also, until they have done drinking.

24:20 And she hurried, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again to the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels.

24:21 And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit whether YEHOVAH had made his journey prosperous or not.

24:22 And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold;

24:23 And said, Whose daughter are you? tell me, I pray you: is there room in your father's house for us to lodge in?

24:24 And she said to him, I am the daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah, which she bore to Nahor.

24:25 She said moreover to him, We have both straw and provender enough, and room to lodge in.

24:26 And the man bowed down his head, and worshipped YEHOVAH.

24:27 And he said, Blessed be YEHOVAH ELOHEY of my master Abraham, who has not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in the way, YEHOVAH led me to the house of my master's brothers.

24:28 And the damsel ran, and told them of her mother's house these things.

24:29 And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban: and Laban ran out to the man, to the well.

24:30 And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets on his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, Thus spoke the man to me; that he came to the man; and, behold, he stood by the camels at the well.

24:31 And he said, Come in, you blessed of YEHOVAH; why stand you without? for I have prepared the house, and room for the camels.

24:32 And the man came into the house: and he ungirded his camels, and gave straw and provender for the camels, and water to wash his feet, and the men's feet that were with him.

24:33 And there was set meat before him to eat: but he said, I will not eat, until I have told my errand. And he said, Speak on.

24:34 And he said, I am Abraham's servant.

24:35 And YEHOVAH has blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he has given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.

24:36 And Sarah my master's wife bore a son to my master when she was old: and to him has he given all that he has.

24:37 And my master made me swear, saying, You shall not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell:

24:38 But you shall go to my father's house, and to my kindred, and take a wife to my son.

24:39 And I said to my master, Peradventure the woman will not follow me.

24:40 And he said to me, YEHOVAH, before whom I walk, will send his angel with you, and prosper your way; and you shall take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father's house:

24:41 Then shall you be clear from this my oath, when you come to my kindred; and if they give not you one, you shall be clear from my oath.

24:42 And I came this day to the well, and said, YEHOVAH ELOHEY of my master Abraham, if now you do prosper my way which I go:

24:43 Behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass, that when the virgin comes forth to draw water, and I say to her, Give me, I pray you, a little water of your pitcher to drink;

24:44 And she say to me, Both drink you, and I will also draw for your camels: let the same be the woman whom YEHOVAH has appointed out for my master's son.

24:45 And before I had done speaking in my heart, behold, Rebekah came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down to the well, and drew water: and I said to her, Let me drink, I pray you.

24:46 And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her shoulder, and said, Drink, and I will give your camels drink also: so I drank, and she made the camels drink also.

24:47 And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter are you? And she said, the daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bore to him: and I put the earring on her face, and the bracelets on her hands.

24:48 And I bowed down my head, and worshipped YEHOVAH, and blessed YEHOVAH ELOHEY of my master Abraham, which had led me in the right way to take my master's brother's daughter to his son.

24:49 And now if you will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me: and if not, tell me; that I may turn to the right hand, or to the left.

24:50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing proceeds from YEHOVAH: we cannot speak to you bad or good.

24:51 Behold, Rebekah is before you, take her, and go, and let her be your master's son's wife, as YEHOVAH has spoken.

24:52 And it came to pass, that, when Abraham's servant heard their words, he worshipped YEHOVAH, bowing himself to the earth.

24:53 And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother and to her mother precious things.

24:54 And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were with him, and tarried all night; and they rose up in the morning, and he said, Send me away to my master.

24:55 And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide with us a few days, at the least ten; after that she shall go.

24:56 And he said to them, Hinder me not, seeing YEHOVAH has prospered my way; send me away that I may go to my master.

24:57 And they said, We will call the damsel, and inquire at her mouth.

24:58 And they called Rebekah, and said to her, Will you go with this man? And she said, I will go.

24:59 And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and Abraham's servant, and his men.

24:60 And they blessed Rebekah, and said to her, You are our sister, be you the mother of thousands of millions, and let your seed possess the gate of those which hate them.

24:61 And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode on the camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and went his way.

24:62 And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahairoi; for he dwelled in the south country.

24:63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.

24:64 And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she lighted off the camel.

24:65 For she had said to the servant, What man is this that walks in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a veil, and covered herself.

24:66 And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.

24:67 And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother's death.


25:1 Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.

25:2 And she bore him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.

25:3 And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.

25:4 And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abidah, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.

25:5 And Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac.

25:6 But to the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, to the east country.

25:7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred three score and fifteen years.

25:8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.

25:9 And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;

25:10 The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.

25:11 And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that ELOHIM blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelled by the well Lahairoi.

25:12 Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bore to Abraham:

25:13 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,

25:14 And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,

25:15 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:

25:16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations.

25:17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered to his people.

25:18 And they dwelled from Havilah to Shur, that is before Egypt, as you go toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his brothers.

25:19 And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham begat Isaac:

25:20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.

25:21 And Isaac entreated YEHOVAH for his wife, because she was barren: and YEHOVAH was entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

25:22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of YEHOVAH.

25:23 And YEHOVAH said to her, Two nations are in your womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from your bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

25:24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

25:25 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.

25:26 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was three score years old when she bore them.

25:27 And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.

25:28 And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob.

25:29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:

25:30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray you, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.

25:31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day your birthright.

25:32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?

25:33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he swore to him: and he sold his birthright to Jacob.

25:34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.


26:1 And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines to Gerar.

26:2 And YEHOVAH appeared to him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell you of:

26:3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and will bless you; for to you, and to your seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father;

26:4 And I will make your seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give to your seed all these countries; and in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

26:6 And Isaac dwelled in Gerar:

26:7 And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look on.

26:8 And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.

26:9 And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is your wife; and how said you, She is my sister? And Isaac said to him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.

26:10 And Abimelech said, What is this you have done to us? one of the people might lightly have lien with your wife, and you should have brought guiltiness on us.

26:11 And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that touches this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.

26:12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundred times: and YEHOVAH blessed him.

26:13 And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

26:14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.

26:15 For all the wells which his father's servants had dig in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.

26:16 And Abimelech said to Isaac, Go from us; for you are much mightier than we.

26:17 And Isaac departed there, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelled there.

26:18 And Isaac dig again the wells of water, which they had dig in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them.

26:19 And Isaac's servants dig in the valley, and found there a well of springing water.

26:20 And the herdsmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdsmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they strove with him.

26:21 And they dig another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah.

26:22 And he removed from there, and dig another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now YEHOVAH has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.

26:23 And he went up from there to Beersheba.

26:24 And YEHOVAH appeared to him the same night, and said, I am the ELOHEY of Abraham your father: fear not, for I am with you, and will bless you, and multiply your seed for my servant Abraham's sake.

26:25 And he built an altar there, and called on the name of YEHOVAH, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac's servants dig a well.

26:26 Then Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his friends, and Phichol the chief captain of his army.

26:27 And Isaac said to them, Why come you to me, seeing you hate me, and have sent me away from you?

26:28 And they said, We saw certainly that YEHOVAH was with you: and we said, Let there be now an oath between us, even between us and you, and let us make a covenant with you;

26:29 That you will do us no hurt, as we have not touched you, and as we have done to you nothing but good, and have sent you away in peace: you are now the blessed of YEHOVAH.

26:30 And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.

26:31 And they rose up betimes in the morning, and swore one to another: and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace.

26:32 And it came to pass the same day, that Isaac's servants came, and told him concerning the well which they had dig, and said to him, We have found water.

26:33 And he called it Shebah: therefore the name of the city is Beersheba to this day.

26:34 And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite:

26:35 Which were a grief of mind to Isaac and to Rebekah.


27:1 And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his oldest son, and said to him, My son: and he said to him, Behold, here am I.

27:2 And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death:

27:3 Now therefore take, I pray you, your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison;

27:4 And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul may bless you before I die.

27:5 And Rebekah heard when Isaac spoke to Esau his son. And Esau went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.

27:6 And Rebekah spoke to Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard your father speak to Esau your brother, saying,

27:7 Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless you before YEHOVAH before my death.

27:8 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command you.

27:9 Go now to the flock, and fetch me from there two good kids of the goats; and I will make them savoury meat for your father, such as he loves:

27:10 And you shall bring it to your father, that he may eat, and that he may bless you before his death.

27:11 And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man:

27:12 My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse on me, and not a blessing.

27:13 And his mother said to him, On me be your curse, my son: only obey my voice, and go fetch me them.

27:14 And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his mother made savoury meat, such as his father loved.

27:15 And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her oldest son Esau, which were with her in the house, and put them on Jacob her younger son:

27:16 And she put the skins of the kids of the goats on his hands, and on the smooth of his neck:

27:17 And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.

27:18 And he came to his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I; who are you, my son?

27:19 And Jacob said to his father, I am Esau your first born; I have done according as you bade me: arise, I pray you, sit and eat of my venison, that your soul may bless me.

27:20 And Isaac said to his son, How is it that you have found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because YEHOVAH ELOHEINU brought it to me.

27:21 And Isaac said to Jacob, Come near, I pray you, that I may feel you, my son, whether you be my very son Esau or not.

27:22 And Jacob went near to Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The voice is Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.

27:23 And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as his brother Esau's hands: so he blessed him.

27:24 And he said, Are you my very son Esau? And he said, I am.

27:25 And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son's venison, that my soul may bless you. And he brought it near to him, and he did eat: and he brought him wine and he drank.

27:26 And his father Isaac said to him, Come near now, and kiss me, my son.

27:27 And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field which YEHOVAH has blessed:

27:28 Therefore ELOHIM give you of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:

27:29 Let people serve you, and nations bow down to you: be YEHOVAH over your brothers, and let your mother's sons bow down to you: cursed be everyone that curses you, and blessed be he that blesses you.

27:30 And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.

27:31 And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it to his father, and said to his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son's venison, that your soul may bless me.

27:32 And Isaac his father said to him, Who are you? And he said, I am your son, your firstborn Esau.

27:33 And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that has taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before you came, and have blessed him? yes, and he shall be blessed.

27:34 And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said to his father, Bless me, even me also, O my father.

27:35 And he said, Your brother came with subtlety, and has taken away your blessing.

27:36 And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he has supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he has taken away my blessing. And he said, Have you not reserved a blessing for me?

27:37 And Isaac answered and said to Esau, Behold, I have made him your YEHOVAH, and all his brothers have I given to him for servants; and with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now to you, my son?

27:38 And Esau said to his father, Have you but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.

27:39 And Isaac his father answered and said to him, Behold, your dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;

27:40 And by your sword shall you live, and shall serve your brother; and it shall come to pass when you shall have the dominion, that you shall break his yoke from off your neck.

27:41 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.

27:42 And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah: and she sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said to him, Behold, your brother Esau, as touching you, does comfort himself, purposing to kill you.

27:43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; arise, flee you to Laban my brother to Haran;

27:44 And tarry with him a few days, until your brother's fury turn away;

27:45 Until your brother's anger turn away from you, and he forget that which you have done to him: then I will send, and fetch you from there: why should I be deprived also of you both in one day?

27:46 And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me?


28:1 And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said to him, You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

28:2 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel your mother's father; and take you a wife from there of the daughers of Laban your mother's brother.

28:3 And EL SHADDAY bless you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, that you may be a multitude of people;

28:4 And give you the blessing of Abraham, to you, and to your seed with you; that you may inherit the land wherein you are a stranger, which ELOHIM gave to Abraham.

28:5 And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram to Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother.

28:6 When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from there; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, You shall not take a wife of the daughers of Canaan;

28:7 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padanaram;

28:8 And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father;

28:9 Then went Esau to Ishmael, and took to the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.

28:10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

28:11 And he lighted on a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of ELOHIM ascending and descending on it.

28:13 And, behold, YEHOVAH stood above it, and said, I am YEHOVAH ELOHEY of Abraham your father, and the ELOHEY of Isaac: the land where on you lie, to you will I give it, and to your seed;

28:14 And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in you and in your seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

28:15 And, behold, I am with you, and will keep you in all places where you go, and will bring you again into this land; for I will not leave you, until I have done that which I have spoken to you of.

28:16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely YEHOVAH is in this place; and I knew it not.

28:17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of ELOHIM, and this is the gate of heaven.

28:18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil on the top of it.

28:19 And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.

28:20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If ELOHIM will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,

28:21 So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall YEHOVAH be ELOHAY:

28:22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be ELOHIM’S house: and of all that you shall give me I will surely give the tenth to you.


29:1 Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.

29:2 And he looked, and behold a well in the field, and, see, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks: and a great stone was on the well's mouth.

29:3 And thither were all the flocks gathered: and they rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone again on the well's mouth in his place.

29:4 And Jacob said to them, My brothers, from where be you? And they said, Of Haran are we.

29:5 And he said to them, Know you Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him.

29:6 And he said to them, Is he well? And they said, He is well: and, behold, Rachel his daughter comes with the sheep.

29:7 And he said, See, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle should be gathered together: water you the sheep, and go and feed them.

29:8 And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered together, and till they roll the stone from the well's mouth; then we water the sheep.

29:9 And while he yet spoke with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep; for she kept them.

29:10 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother's brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother's brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother's brother.

29:11 And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.

29:12 And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and that he was Rebekah's son: and she ran and told her father.

29:13 And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his sister's son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed him, and brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these things.

29:14 And Laban said to him, Surely you are my bone and my flesh. And he stayed with him the space of a month.

29:15 And Laban said to Jacob, Because you are my brother, should you therefore serve me for nothing? tell me, what shall your wages be?

29:16 And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.

29:17 Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favored.

29:18 And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve you seven years for Rachel your younger daughter.

29:19 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to you, than that I should give her to another man: abide with me.

29:20 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed to him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

29:21 And Jacob said to Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in to her.

29:22 And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.

29:23 And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in to her.

29:24 And Laban gave to his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid.

29:25 And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this you have done to me? did not I serve with you for Rachel? why then have you beguiled me?

29:26 And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn.

29:27 Fulfill her week, and we will give you this also for the service which you shall serve with me yet seven other years.

29:28 And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.

29:29 And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her maid.

29:30 And he went in also to Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.

29:31 And when YEHOVAH saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

29:32 And Leah conceived, and bore a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely YEHOVAH has looked on my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.

29:33 And she conceived again, and bore a son; and said, Because YEHOVAH has heard I was hated, he has therefore given me this son also: and she called his name Simeon.

29:34 And she conceived again, and bore a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined to me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi.

29:35 And she conceived again, and bore a son: and she said, Now will I praise YEHOVAH: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.


30:1 And when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said to Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.

30:2 And Jacob's anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in ELOHIM’S stead, who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb?

30:3 And she said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in to her; and she shall bear on my knees, that I may also have children by her.

30:4 And she gave him Bilhah her handmaid to wife: and Jacob went in to her.

30:5 And Bilhah conceived, and bore Jacob a son.

30:6 And Rachel said, ELOHIM has judged me, and has also heard my voice, and has given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan.

30:7 And Bilhah Rachel's maid conceived again, and bore Jacob a second son.

30:8 And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali.

30:9 When Leah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zilpah her maid, and gave her Jacob to wife.

30:10 And Zilpah Leah's maid bore Jacob a son.

30:11 And Leah said, A troop comes: and she called his name Gad.

30:12 And Zilpah Leah's maid bore Jacob a second son.

30:13 And Leah said, Happy am I, for the daughters will call me blessed: and she called his name Asher.

30:14 And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found mandrakes in the field, and brought them to his mother Leah. Then Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray you, of your son's mandrakes.

30:15 And she said to her, Is it a small matter that you have taken my husband? and would you take away my son's mandrakes also? And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with you to night for your son's mandrakes.

30:16 And Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went out to meet him, and said, You must come in to me; for surely I have hired you with my son's mandrakes. And he lay with her that night.

30:17 And ELOHIM listened to Leah, and she conceived, and bore Jacob the fifth son.

30:18 And Leah said, ELOHIM has given me my hire, because I have given my maiden to my husband: and she called his name Issachar.

30:19 And Leah conceived again, and bore Jacob the sixth son.

30:20 And Leah said, ELOHIM has endued me with a good dowry; now will my husband dwell with me, because I have born him six sons: and she called his name Zebulun.

30:21 And afterwards she bore a daughter, and called her name Dinah.

30:22 And ELOHIM remembered Rachel, and ELOHIM listened to her, and opened her womb.

30:23 And she conceived, and bore a son; and said, ELOHIM has taken away my reproach:

30:24 And she called his name Joseph; and said, YEHOVAH shall add to me another son.

30:25 And it came to pass, when Rachel had born Joseph, that Jacob said to Laban, Send me away, that I may go to my own place, and to my country.

30:26 Give me my wives and my children, for whom I have served you, and let me go: for you know my service which I have done you.

30:27 And Laban said to him, I pray you, if I have found favor in your eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that YEHOVAH has blessed me for your sake.

30:28 And he said, Appoint me your wages, and I will give it.

30:29 And he said to him, You know how I have served you, and how your cattle was with me.

30:30 For it was little which you had before I came, and it is now increased to a multitude; and YEHOVAH has blessed you since my coming: and now when shall I provide for my own house also?

30:31 And he said, What shall I give you? And Jacob said, You shall not give me any thing: if you will do this thing for me, I will again feed and keep your flock.

30:32 I will pass through all your flock to day, removing from there all the speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such shall be my hire.

30:33 So shall my righteousness answer for me in time to come, when it shall come for my hire before your face: everyone that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and brown among the sheep, that shall be counted stolen with me.

30:34 And Laban said, Behold, I would it might be according to your word.

30:35 And he removed that day the he goats that were ringstraked and spotted, and all the she goats that were speckled and spotted, and everyone that had some white in it, and all the brown among the sheep, and gave them into the hand of his sons.

30:36 And he set three days' journey between himself and Jacob: and Jacob fed the rest of Laban's flocks.

30:37 And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and chesnut tree; and pilled white strakes in them, and made the white appear which was in the rods.

30:38 And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in the gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks came to drink, that they should conceive when they came to drink.

30:39 And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.

30:40 And Jacob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks toward the ringstraked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban; and he put his own flocks by themselves, and put them not to Laban's cattle.

30:41 And it came to pass, whenever the stronger cattle did conceive, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters, that they might conceive among the rods.

30:42 But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in: so the feebler were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's.

30:43 And the man increased exceedingly, and had much cattle, and maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses.


31:1 And he heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob has taken away all that was our father's; and of that which was our father's has he gotten all this glory.

31:2 And Jacob beheld the countenance of Laban, and, behold, it was not toward him as before.

31:3 And YEHOVAH said to Jacob, Return to the land of your fathers, and to your kindred; and I will be with you.

31:4 And Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field to his flock,

31:5 And said to them, I see your father's countenance, that it is not toward me as before; but the ELOHEY of my father has been with me.

31:6 And you know that with all my power I have served your father.

31:7 And your father has deceived me, and changed my wages ten times; but ELOHIM suffered him not to hurt me.

31:8 If he said thus, The speckled shall be your wages; then all the cattle bore speckled: and if he said thus, The ringstraked shall be your hire; then bore all the cattle ringstraked.

31:9 Thus ELOHIM has taken away the cattle of your father, and given them to me.

31:10 And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I lifted up my eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped on the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.

31:11 And the angel of ELOHIM spoke to me in a dream, saying, Jacob: And I said, Here am I.

31:12 And he said, Lift up now your eyes, and see, all the rams which leap on the cattle are ringstraked, speckled, and spotted: for I have seen all that Laban does to you.

31:13 I am the ELOHEY of Bethel, where you anointed the pillar, and where you vowed a vow to me: now arise, get you out from this land, and return to the land of your kindred.

31:14 And Rachel and Leah answered and said to him, Is there yet any portion or inheritance for us in our father's house?

31:15 Are we not counted of him strangers? for he has sold us, and has quite devoured also our money.

31:16 For all the riches which ELOHIM has taken from our father, that is ours, and our children's: now then, whatever ELOHIM has said to you, do.

31:17 Then Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives on camels;

31:18 And he carried away all his cattle, and all his goods which he had gotten, the cattle of his getting, which he had gotten in Padanaram, for to go to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan.

31:19 And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the images that were her father's.

31:20 And Jacob stole away unawares to Laban the Syrian, in that he told him not that he fled.

31:21 So he fled with all that he had; and he rose up, and passed over the river, and set his face toward the mount Gilead.

31:22 And it was told Laban on the third day that Jacob was fled.

31:23 And he took his brothers with him, and pursued after him seven days' journey; and they overtook him in the mount Gilead.

31:24 And ELOHIM came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said to him, Take heed that you speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

31:25 Then Laban overtook Jacob. Now Jacob had pitched his tent in the mount: and Laban with his brothers pitched in the mount of Gilead.

31:26 And Laban said to Jacob, What have you done, that you have stolen away unawares to me, and carried away my daughters, as captives taken with the sword?

31:27 Why did you flee away secretly, and steal away from me; and did not tell me, that I might have sent you away with mirth, and with songs, with tabret, and with harp?

31:28 And have not suffered me to kiss my sons and my daughters? you have now done foolishly in so doing.

31:29 It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the ELOHEY of your father spoke to me last night, saying, Take you heed that you speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

31:30 And now, though you would needs be gone, because you sore longed after your father's house, yet why have you stolen elohays?

31:31 And Jacob answered and said to Laban, Because I was afraid: for I said, Peradventure you would take by force your daughters from me.

31:32 With whomsoever you find eloheichas, let him not live: before our brothers discern you what is your with me, and take it to you. For Jacob knew not that Rachel had stolen them.

31:33 And Laban went into Jacob's tent, and into Leah's tent, and into the two maidservants' tents; but he found them not. Then went he out of Leah's tent, and entered into Rachel's tent.

31:34 Now Rachel had taken the images, and put them in the camel's furniture, and sat on them. And Laban searched all the tent, but found them not.

31:35 And she said to her father, Let it not displease Adoni that I cannot rise up before you; for the custom of women is on me. And he searched but found not the images.

31:36 And Jacob was wroth, and strived with Laban: and Jacob answered and said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that you have so hotly pursued after me?

31:37 Whereas you have searched all my stuff, what have you found of all your household stuff? set it here before my brothers and your brothers, that they may judge between us both.

31:38 This twenty years have I been with you; your ewes and your she goats have not cast their young, and the rams of your flock have I not eaten.

31:39 That which was torn of beasts I brought not to you; I bore the loss of it; of my hand did you require it, whether stolen by day, or stolen by night.

31:40 Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep departed from my eyes.

31:41 Thus have I been twenty years in your house; I served you fourteen years for your two daughters, and six years for your cattle: and you have changed my wages ten times.

31:42 Except the ELOHEY of my father, the ELOHEY of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely you had sent me away now empty. ELOHIM has seen my affliction and the labor of my hands, and rebuked you last night.

31:43 And Laban answered and said to Jacob, These daughters are my daughters, and these children are my children, and these cattle are my cattle, and all that you see is mine: and what can I do this day to these my daughters, or to their children which they have born?

31:44 Now therefore come you, let us make a covenant, I and you; and let it be for a witness between me and you.

31:45 And Jacob took a stone, and set it up for a pillar.

31:46 And Jacob said to his brothers, Gather stones; and they took stones, and made an heap: and they did eat there on the heap.

31:47 And Laban called it Jegarsahadutha: but Jacob called it Galeed.

31:48 And Laban said, This heap is a witness between me and you this day.  Therefore was the name of it called Galeed;

31:49 And Mizpah; for he said, YEHOVAH watch between me and you, when we are absent one from another.

31:50 If you shall afflict my daughters, or if you shall take other wives beside my daughters, no man is with us; see, ELOHIM is witness between me and you.

31:51 And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and behold this pillar, which I have cast between me and you:

31:52 This heap be witness, and this pillar be witness, that I will not pass over this heap to you, and that you shall not pass over this heap and this pillar to me, for harm.

31:53 The ELOHEY of Abraham, and the ELOHEY of Nahor, the ELOHEY of their father, judge between us. And Jacob swore by the fear of his father Isaac.

31:54 Then Jacob offered sacrifice on the mount, and called his brothers to eat bread: and they did eat bread, and tarried all night in the mount.

31:55 And early in the morning Laban rose up, and kissed his sons and his daughters, and blessed them: and Laban departed, and returned to his place.


32:1 And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of ELOHIM met him.

32:2 And when Jacob saw them, he said, This is ELOHIM’S host: and he called the name of that place Mahanaim.

32:3 And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother to the land of Seir, the country of Edom.

32:4 And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall you speak to Adoni Esau; Your servant Jacob said thus, I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed there until now:

32:5 And I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and womenservants: and I have sent to tell Adoni, that I may find grace in your sight.

32:6 And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to your brother Esau, and also he comes to meet you, and four hundred men with him.

32:7 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels, into two bands;

32:8 And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the other company which is left shall escape.

32:9 And Jacob said, ELOHEY of my father Abraham, and ELOHEY of my father Isaac, YEHOVAH which said to me, Return to your country, and to your kindred, and I will deal well with you:

32:10 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which you have showed to your servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.

32:11 Deliver me, I pray you, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the children.

32:12 And you said, I will surely do you good, and make your seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.

32:13 And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came to his hand a present for Esau his brother;

32:14 Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and twenty rams,

32:15 Thirty milk camels with their colts, forty cows, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals.

32:16 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by themselves; and said to his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space between drove and drove.

32:17 And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meets you, and asks you, saying, Whose are you? and where go you? and whose are these before you?

32:18 Then you shall say, They be your servant Jacob's; it is a present sent to Adoni Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.

32:19 And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall you speak to Esau, when you find him.

32:20 And say you moreover, Behold, your servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease him with the present that goes before me, and afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.

32:21 So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night in the company.

32:22 And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok.

32:23 And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had.

32:24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.

32:25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.

32:26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaks. And he said, I will not let you go, except you bless me.

32:27 And he said to him, What is your name? And he said, Jacob.

32:28 And he said, Your name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince have you power with ELOHIM and with men, and have prevailed.

32:29 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray you, your name. And he said, Why is it that you do ask after my name? And he blessed him there.

32:30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen ELOHIM face to face, and my life is preserved.

32:31 And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose on him, and he halted on his thigh.

32:32 Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank, which is on the hollow of the thigh, to this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh in the sinew that shrank.


33:1 And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children to Leah, and to Rachel, and to the two handmaids.

33:2 And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph last.

33:3 And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.

33:4 And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.

33:5 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with you? And he said, The children which ELOHIM has graciously given your servant.

33:6 Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves.

33:7 And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves: and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves.

33:8 And he said, What mean you by all this drove which I met? And he said, These are to find grace in the sight of Adoni.

33:9 And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that you have to yourself.

33:10 And Jacob said, No, I pray you, if now I have found grace in your sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen your face, as though I had seen the face of ELOHIM, and you were pleased with me.

33:11 Take, I pray you, my blessing that is brought to you; because ELOHIM has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he took it.

33:12 And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go before you.

33:13 And he said to him, Adoni knows that the children are tender, and the flocks and herds with young are with me: and if men should overdrive them one day, all the flock will die.

33:14 Let Adoni, I pray you, pass over before his servant: and I will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goes before me and the children be able to endure, until I come to Adoni to Seir.

33:15 And Esau said, Let me now leave with you some of the folk that are with me. And he said, What needs it? let me find grace in the sight of Adoni.

33:16 So Esau returned that day on his way to Seir.

33:17 And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him an house, and made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.

33:18 And Jacob came to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, when he came from Padanaram; and pitched his tent before the city.

33:19 And he bought a parcel of a field, where he had spread his tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem's father, for an hundred pieces of money.

33:20 And he erected there an altar, and called it EleloheIsrael.


34:1 And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bore to Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land.

34:2 And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.

34:3 And his soul joined to Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spoke kindly to the damsel.

34:4 And Shechem spoke to his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife.

34:5 And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were come.

34:6 And Hamor the father of Shechem went out to Jacob to commune with him.

34:7 And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it: and the men were grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had worked folly in Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter: which thing ought not to be done.

34:8 And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son Shechem longs for your daughter: I pray you give her him to wife.

34:9 And make you marriages with us, and give your daughters to us, and take our daughters to you.

34:10 And you shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you; dwell and trade you therein, and get you possessions therein.

34:11 And Shechem said to her father and to her brothers, Let me find grace in your eyes, and what you shall say to me I will give.

34:12 Ask me never so much dowry and gift, and I will give according as you shall say to me: but give me the damsel to wife.

34:13 And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father deceitfully, and said, because he had defiled Dinah their sister:

34:14 And they said to them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach to us:

34:15 But in this will we consent to you: If you will be as we be, that every male of you be circumcised;

34:16 Then will we give our daughters to you, and we will take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people.

34:17 But if you will not listen to us, to be circumcised; then will we take our daughter, and we will be gone.

34:18 And their words pleased Hamor, and Shechem Hamor's son.

34:19 And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had delight in Jacob's daughter: and he was more honorable than all the house of his father.

34:20 And Hamor and Shechem his son came to the gate of their city, and communed with the men of their city, saying,

34:21 These men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the land, and trade therein; for the land, behold, it is large enough for them; let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our daughters.

34:22 Only herein will the men consent to us for to dwell with us, to be one people, if every male among us be circumcised, as they are circumcised.

34:23 Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast of their's be our's? only let us consent to them, and they will dwell with us.

34:24 And to Hamor and to Shechem his son listened all that went out of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all that went out of the gate of his city.

34:25 And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, took each man his sword, and came on the city boldly, and slew all the males.

34:26 And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went out.

34:27 The sons of Jacob came on the slain, and spoiled the city, because they had defiled their sister.

34:28 They took their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses, and that which was in the city, and that which was in the field,

34:29 And all their wealth, and all their little ones, and their wives took they captive, and spoiled even all that was in the house.

34:30 And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, You have troubled me to make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house.

34:31 And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with an harlot?


35:1 And ELOHIM said to Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar to ELOHIM, that appeared to you when you fled from the face of Esau your brother.

35:2 Then Jacob said to his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange elohims that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments:

35:3 And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar to ELOHIM, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.

35:4 And they gave to Jacob all the strange elohims which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.

35:5 And they journeyed: and the terror of ELOHIM was on the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.

35:6 So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that is, Bethel, he and all the people that were with him.

35:7 And he built there an altar, and called the place Elbethel: because there ELOHIM appeared to him, when he fled from the face of his brother.

35:8 But Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was buried beneath Bethel under an oak: and the name of it was called Allonbachuth.

35:9 And ELOHIM appeared to Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and blessed him.

35:10 And ELOHIM said to him, Your name is Jacob: your name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be your name: and he called his name Israel.

35:11 And ELOHIM said to him, I am EL SHADDAY: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of you, and kings shall come out of your loins;

35:12 And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to you I will give it, and to your seed after you will I give the land.

35:13 And ELOHIM went up from him in the place where he talked with him.

35:14 And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon.

35:15 And Jacob called the name of the place where ELOHIM spoke with him, Bethel.

35:16 And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labor.

35:17 And it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that the midwife said to her, Fear not; you shall have this son also.

35:18 And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, for she died that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin.

35:19 And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem.

35:20 And Jacob set a pillar on her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave to this day.

35:21 And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.

35:22 And it came to pass, when Israel dwelled in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:

35:23 The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:

35:24 The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:

35:25 And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:

35:26 And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid: Gad, and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padanaram.

35:27 And Jacob came to Isaac his father to Mamre, to the city of Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.

35:28 And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years.

35:29 And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered to his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.


36:1 Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.

36:2 Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite;

36:3 And Bashemath Ishmael's daughter, sister of Nebajoth.

36:4 And Adah bore to Esau Eliphaz; and Bashemath bore Reuel;

36:5 And Aholibamah bore Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, which were born to him in the land of Canaan.

36:6 And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob.

36:7 For their riches were more than that they might dwell together; and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them because of their cattle.

36:8 Thus dwelled Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.

36:9 And these are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in mount Seir:

36:10 These are the names of Esau's sons; Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reuel the son of Bashemath the wife of Esau.

36:11 And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam, and Kenaz.

36:12 And Timna was concubine to Eliphaz Esau's son; and she bore to Eliphaz Amalek: these were the sons of Adah Esau's wife.

36:13 And these are the sons of Reuel; Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah: these were the sons of Bashemath Esau's wife.

36:14 And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon, Esau's wife: and she bore to Esau Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah.

36:15 These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz,

36:16 Duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these were the sons of Adah.

36:17 And these are the sons of Reuel Esau's son; duke Nahath, duke Zerah, duke Shammah, duke Mizzah: these are the dukes that came of Reuel in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Bashemath Esau's wife.

36:18 And these are the sons of Aholibamah Esau's wife; duke Jeush, duke Jaalam, duke Korah: these were the dukes that came of Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, Esau's wife.

36:19 These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their dukes.

36:20 These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who inhabited the land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah,

36:21 And Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan: these are the dukes of the Horites, the children of Seir in the land of Edom.

36:22 And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan's sister was Timna.

36:23 And the children of Shobal were these; Alvan, and Manahath, and Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.

36:24 And these are the children of Zibeon; both Ajah, and Anah: this was that Anah that found the mules in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father.

36:25 And the children of Anah were these; Dishon, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah.

36:26 And these are the children of Dishon; Hemdan, and Eshban, and Ithran, and Cheran.

36:27 The children of Ezer are these; Bilhan, and Zaavan, and Akan.

36:28 The children of Dishan are these; Uz, and Aran.

36:29 These are the dukes that came of the Horites; duke Lotan, duke Shobal, duke Zibeon, duke Anah,

36:30 Duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan: these are the dukes that came of Hori, among their dukes in the land of Seir.

36:31 And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel.

36:32 And Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom: and the name of his city was Dinhabah.

36:33 And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead.

36:34 And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Temani reigned in his stead.

36:35 And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who smote Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Avith.

36:36 And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.

36:37 And Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead.

36:38 And Saul died, and Baalhanan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead.

36:39 And Baalhanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Pau; and his wife's name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.

36:40 And these are the names of the dukes that came of Esau, according to their families, after their places, by their names; duke Timnah, duke Alvah, duke Jetheth,

36:41 Duke Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon,

36:42 Duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,

36:43 Duke Magdiel, duke Iram: these be the dukes of Edom, according to their habitations in the land of their possession: he is Esau the father of the Edomites.


37:1 And Jacob dwelled in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan.

37:2 These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brothers; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought to his father their evil report.

37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colors.

37:4 And when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably to him.

37:5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brothers: and they hated him yet the more.

37:6 And he said to them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:

37:7 For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, see, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.

37:8 And his brothers said to him, Shall you indeed reign over us? or shall you indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.

37:9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brothers, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

37:10 And he told it to his father, and to his brothers: and his father rebuked him, and said to him, What is this dream that you have dreamed?  Shall I and your mother and your brothers indeed come to bow down ourselves to you to the earth?

37:11 And his brothers envied him; but his father observed the saying.

37:12 And his brothers went to feed their father's flock in Shechem.

37:13 And Israel said to Joseph, Do not your brothers feed the flock in Shechem? come, and I will send you to them. And he said to him, Here am I.

37:14 And he said to him, Go, I pray you, see whether it be well with your brothers, and well with the flocks; and bring me word again. So he sent him out of the vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.

37:15 And a certain man found him, and, behold, he was wandering in the field: and the man asked him, saying, What seek you?

37:16 And he said, I seek my brothers: tell me, I pray you, where they feed their flocks.

37:17 And the man said, They are departed hence; for I heard them say, Let us go to Dothan. And Joseph went after his brothers, and found them in Dothan.

37:18 And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near to them, they conspired against him to slay him.

37:19 And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer comes.

37:20 Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast has devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.

37:21 And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands; and said, Let us not kill him.

37:22 And Reuben said to them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand on him; that he might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.

37:23 And it came to pass, when Joseph was come to his brothers, that they stripped Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colors that was on him;

37:24 And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.

37:25 And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spices and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.

37:26 And Judah said to his brothers, What profit is it if we slay our brother, and conceal his blood?

37:27 Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be on him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brothers were content.

37:28 Then there passed by Midianites merchants; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.

37:29 And Reuben returned to the pit; and, behold, Joseph was not in the pit; and he rent his clothes.

37:30 And he returned to his brothers, and said, The child is not; and I, where shall I go?

37:31 And they took Joseph's coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in the blood;

37:32 And they sent the coat of many colors, and they brought it to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be your son's coat or no.

37:33 And he knew it, and said, It is my son's coat; an evil beast has devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.

37:34 And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth on his loins, and mourned for his son many days.

37:35 And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave to my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.

37:36 And the Midianites sold him into Egypt to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh's, and captain of the guard.


38:1 And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his brothers, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name was Hirah.

38:2 And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in to her.

38:3 And she conceived, and bore a son; and he called his name Er.

38:4 And she conceived again, and bore a son; and she called his name Onan.

38:5 And she yet again conceived, and bore a son; and called his name Shelah: and he was at Chezib, when she bore him.

38:6 And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was Tamar.

38:7 And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of YEHOVAH; and YEHOVAH slew him.

38:8 And Judah said to Onan, Go in to your brother's wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to your brother.

38:9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in to his brother's wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.

38:10 And the thing which he did displeased YEHOVAH: why he slew him also.

38:11 Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, Remain a widow at your father's house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brothers did. And Tamar went and dwelled in her father's house.

38:12 And in process of time the daughter of Shuah Judah's wife died; and Judah was comforted, and went up to his sheep shearers to Timnath, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite.

38:13 And it was told Tamar, saying, Behold your father in law goes up to Timnath to shear his sheep.

38:14 And she put her widow's garments off from her, and covered her with a veil, and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which is by the way to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given to him to wife.

38:15 When Judah saw her, he thought her to be an harlot; because she had covered her face.

38:16 And he turned to her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray you, let me come in to you; for he knew not that she was his daughter in law. And she said, What will you give me, that you may come in to me?

38:17 And he said, I will send you a kid from the flock. And she said, Will you give me a pledge, till you send it?

38:18 And he said, What pledge shall I give you? And she said, Your signet, and your bracelets, and your staff that is in your hand. And he gave it her, and came in to her, and she conceived by him.

38:19 And she arose, and went away, and laid by her veil from her, and put on the garments of her widowhood.

38:20 And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullamite, to receive his pledge from the woman's hand: but he found her not.

38:21 Then he asked the men of that place, saying, Where is the harlot, that was openly by the way side? And they said, There was no harlot in this place.

38:22 And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the men of the place said, that there was no harlot in this place.

38:23 And Judah said, Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed: behold, I sent this kid, and you have not found her.

38:24 And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar your daughter in law has played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by prostitution. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.

38:25 When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray you, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.

38:26 And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She has been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.

38:27 And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb.

38:28 And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound on his hand a scarlet thread, saying, This came out first.

38:29 And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How have you broken forth? this breach be on you: therefore his name was called Pharez.

38:30 And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread on his hand: and his name was called Zarah.


39:1 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.

39:2 And YEHOVAH was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

39:3 And his master saw that YEHOVAH was with him, and that YEHOVAH made all that he did to prosper in his hand.

39:4 And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.

39:5 And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that YEHOVAH blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of YEHOVAH was on all that he had in the house, and in the field.

39:6 And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favored.

39:7 And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes on Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.

39:8 But he refused, and said to his master's wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he has committed all that he has to my hand;

39:9 There is none greater in this house than I; neither has he kept back any thing from me but you, because you are his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against ELOHIM?

39:10 And it came to pass, as she spoke to Joseph day by day, that he listened not to her, to lie by her, or to be with her.

39:11 And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.

39:12 And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

39:13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth,

39:14 That she called to the men of her house, and spoke to them, saying, See, he has brought in an Hebrew to us to mock us; he came in to me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:

39:15 And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.

39:16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his YEHOVAH came home.

39:17 And she spoke to him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which you have brought to us, came in to me to mock me:

39:18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.

39:19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spoke to him, saying, After this manner did your servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.

39:20 And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

39:21 But YEHOVAH was with Joseph, and showed him mercy, and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

39:22 And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatever they did there, he was the doer of it.

39:23 The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because YEHOVAH was with him, and that which he did, YEHOVAH made it to prosper.


There is now no YEHOVAH except in ch. 49,18

40:1 And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of the king of Egypt and his baker had offended their YEHOVAH the king of Egypt.

40:2 And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers.

40:3 And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound.

40:4 And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served them: and they continued a season in ward.

40:5 And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in one night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the prison.

40:6 And Joseph came in to them in the morning, and looked on them, and, behold, they were sad.

40:7 And he asked Pharaoh's officers that were with him in the ward of his YEHOVAH’S house, saying, Why look you so sadly to day?

40:8 And they said to him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said to them, Do not interpretations belong to ELOHIM? tell me them, I pray you.

40:9 And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me;

40:10 And in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it budded, and her blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought forth ripe grapes:

40:11 And Pharaoh's cup was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.

40:12 And Joseph said to him, This is the interpretation of it: The three branches are three days:

40:13 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up your head, and restore you to your place: and you shall deliver Pharaoh's cup into his hand, after the former manner when you were his butler.

40:14 But think on me when it shall be well with you, and show kindness, I pray you, to me, and make mention of me to Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:

40:15 For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon.

40:16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said to Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, I had three white baskets on my head:

40:17 And in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of bakemeats for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket on my head.

40:18 And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof: The three baskets are three days:

40:19 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up your head from off you, and shall hang you on a tree; and the birds shall eat your flesh from off you.

40:20 And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast to all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.

40:21 And he restored the chief butler to his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand:

40:22 But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.

40:23 Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgot him.


41:1 And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

41:2 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favored cows and fat; and they fed in a meadow.

41:3 And, behold, seven other cows came up after them out of the river, ill favored and skinney; and stood by the other cows on the brink of the river.

41:4 And the ill favored and skinney cows did eat up the seven well favored and fat cows. So Pharaoh awoke.

41:5 And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up on one stalk, rank and good.

41:6 And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them.

41:7 And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

41:8 And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them to Pharaoh.

41:9 Then spoke the chief butler to Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:

41:10 Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker:

41:11 And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his dream.

41:12 And there was there with us a young man, an Hebrew, servant to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret.

41:13 And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he restored to my office, and him he hanged.

41:14 Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in to Pharaoh.

41:15 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of you, that you can understand a dream to interpret it.

41:16 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: ELOHIM shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

41:17 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood on the bank of the river:

41:18 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven cows, fat and well favored; and they fed in a meadow:

41:19 And, behold, seven other cows came up after them, poor and very ill favored and skinney, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness:

41:20 And the lean and the ill favored cows did eat up the first seven fat cows:

41:21 And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still ill favored, as at the beginning. So I awoke.

41:22 And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one stalk, full and good:

41:23 And, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them:

41:24 And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told this to the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

41:25 And Joseph said to Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: ELOHIM has showed Pharaoh what he is about to do.

41:26 The seven good cows are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one.

41:27 And the seven thin and ill favored cows that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine.

41:28 This is the thing which I have spoken to Pharaoh: What ELOHIM is about to do he shows to Pharaoh.

41:29 Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:

41:30 And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;

41:31 And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous.

41:32 And for that the dream was doubled to Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by ELOHIM, and ELOHIM will shortly bring it to pass.

41:33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

41:34 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

41:35 And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

41:36 And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine.

41:37 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.

41:38 And Pharaoh said to his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of ELOHIM is?

41:39 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, For as much as ELOHIM has showed you all this, there is none so discreet and wise as you are:

41:40 You shall be over my house, and according to your word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than you.

41:41 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.

41:42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it on Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in clothing of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;

41:43 And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.

41:44 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without you shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.

41:45 And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.

41:46 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.

41:47 And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by handfuls.

41:48 And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.

41:49 And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number.

41:50 And to Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bore to him.

41:51 And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For ELOHIM, said he, has made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house.

41:52 And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For ELOHIM has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.

41:53 And the seven years of plenty, that was in the land of Egypt, were ended.

41:54 And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.

41:55 And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, Go to Joseph; what he said to you, do.

41:56 And the famine was over all the face of the earth: and Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold to the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt.

41:57 And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands.


42:1 Now when Jacob saw that there was corn in Egypt, Jacob said to his sons, Why do you look one on another?

42:2 And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is corn in Egypt: get you down thither, and buy for us from there; that we may live, and not die.

42:3 And Joseph's ten brothers went down to buy corn in Egypt.

42:4 But Benjamin, Joseph's brother, Jacob sent not with his brothers; for he said, Lest peradventure mischief befall him.

42:5 And the sons of Israel came to buy corn among those that came: for the famine was in the land of Canaan.

42:6 And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that sold to all the people of the land: and Joseph's brothers came, and bowed down themselves before him with their faces to the earth.

42:7 And Joseph saw his brothers, and he knew them, but made himself strange to them, and spoke roughly to them; and he said to them, From where come you? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy food.

42:8 And Joseph knew his brothers, but they knew not him.

42:9 And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them, and said to them, You are spies; to see the nakedness of the land you are come.

42:10 And they said to him, No, Adoni, but to buy food are your servants come.

42:11 We are all one man's sons; we are true men, your servants are no spies.

42:12 And he said to them, No, but to see the nakedness of the land you are come.

42:13 And they said, Your servants are twelve brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan; and, behold, the youngest is this day with our father, and one is not.

42:14 And Joseph said to them, That is it that I spoke to you, saying, You are spies:

42:15 Hereby you shall be proved: By the life of Pharaoh you shall not go forth hence, except your youngest brother come here.

42:16 Send one of you, and let him fetch your brother, and you shall be kept in prison, that your words may be proved, whether there be any truth in you: or else by the life of Pharaoh surely you are spies.

42:17 And he put them all together into ward three days.

42:18 And Joseph said to them the third day, This do, and live; for I fear ELOHIM:

42:19 If you be true men, let one of your brothers be bound in the house of your prison: go you, carry corn for the famine of your houses:

42:20 But bring your youngest brother to me; so shall your words be verified, and you shall not die. And they did so.

42:21 And they said one to another, We are truly guilty concerning our brother, in that we saw the anguish of his soul, when he sought us, and we would not hear; therefore is this distress come on us.

42:22 And Reuben answered them, saying, Spoke I not to you, saying, Do not sin against the child; and you would not hear? therefore, behold, also his blood is required.

42:23 And they knew not that Joseph understood them; for he spoke to them by an interpreter.

42:24 And he turned himself about from them, and wept; and returned to them again, and communed with them, and took from them Simeon, and bound him before their eyes.

42:25 Then Joseph commanded to fill their sacks with corn, and to restore every man's money into his sack, and to give them provision for the way: and thus did he to them.

42:26 And they laded their asses with the corn, and departed there.

42:27 And as one of them opened his sack to give his ass provender in the inn, he espied his money; for, behold, it was in his sack's mouth.

42:28 And he said to his brothers, My money is restored; and, see, it is even in my sack: and their heart failed them, and they were afraid, saying one to another, What is this that ELOHIM has done to us?

42:29 And they came to Jacob their father to the land of Canaan, and told him all that befell to them; saying,

42:30 The man, who is YEHOVAH of the land, spoke roughly to us, and took us for spies of the country.

42:31 And we said to him, We are true men; we are no spies:

42:32 We be twelve brothers, sons of our father; one is not, and the youngest is this day with our father in the land of Canaan.

42:33 And the man, YEHOVAH of the country, said to us, Hereby shall I know that you are true men; leave one of your brothers here with me, and take food for the famine of your households, and be gone:

42:34 And bring your youngest brother to me: then shall I know that you are no spies, but that you are true men: so will I deliver you your brother, and you shall traffic in the land.

42:35 And it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, that, behold, every man's bundle of money was in his sack: and when both they and their father saw the bundles of money, they were afraid.

42:36 And Jacob their father said to them, Me have you bereaved of my children: Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and you will take Benjamin away: all these things are against me.

42:37 And Reuben spoke to his father, saying, Slay my two sons, if I bring him not to you: deliver him into my hand, and I will bring him to you again.

42:38 And he said, My son shall not go down with you; for his brother is dead, and he is left alone: if mischief befall him by the way in the which you go, then shall you bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.


43:1 And the famine was sore in the land.

43:2 And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they had brought out of Egypt, their father said to them, Go again, buy us a little food.

43:3 And Judah spoke to him, saying, The man did solemnly protest to us, saying, You shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.

43:4 If you will send our brother with us, we will go down and buy you food:

43:5 But if you will not send him, we will not go down: for the man said to us, You shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.

43:6 And Israel said, Why dealt you so ill with me, as to tell the man whether you had yet a brother?

43:7 And they said, The man asked us straightly of our state, and of our kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have you another brother? and we told him according to the tenor of these words: could we certainly know that he would say, Bring your brother down?

43:8 And Judah said to Israel his father, Send the lad with me, and we will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and you, and also our little ones.

43:9 I will be surety for him; of my hand shall you require him: if I bring him not to you, and set him before you, then let me bear the blame forever:

43:10 For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second time.

43:11 And their father Israel said to them, If it must be so now, do this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds:

43:12 And take double money in your hand; and the money that was brought again in the mouth of your sacks, carry it again in your hand; peradventure it was an oversight:

43:13 Take also your brother, and arise, go again to the man:

43:14 And EL SHADDAY give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved.

43:15 And the men took that present, and they took double money in their hand and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood before Joseph.

43:16 And when Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the ruler of his house, Bring these men home, and slay, and make ready; for these men shall dine with me at noon.

43:17 And the man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men into Joseph's house.

43:18 And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Joseph's house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in our sacks at the first time are we brought in; that he may seek occasion against us, and fall on us, and take us for slaves, and our asses.

43:19 And they came near to the steward of Joseph's house, and they communed with him at the door of the house,

43:20 And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food:

43:21 And it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that we opened our sacks, and, behold, every man's money was in the mouth of his sack, our money in full weight: and we have brought it again in our hand.

43:22 And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food: we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks.

43:23 And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: ELOHEINU, and the ELOHEY of your father, has given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Simeon out to them.

43:24 And the man brought the men into Joseph's house, and gave them water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses provender.

43:25 And they made ready the present against Joseph came at noon: for they heard that they should eat bread there.

43:26 And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.

43:27 And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? Is he yet alive?

43:28 And they answered, Your servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.

43:29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom you spoke to me? And he said, ELOHIM be gracious to you, my son.

43:30 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn on his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there.

43:31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread.

43:32 And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination to the Egyptians.

43:33 And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marveled one at another.

43:34 And he took and sent messes to them from before him: but Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of their's. And they drank, and were merry with him.


44:1 And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man's money in his sack's mouth.

44:2 And put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack's mouth of the youngest, and his corn money. And he did according to the word that Joseph had spoken.

44:3 As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they and their asses.

44:4 And when they were gone out of the city, and not yet far off, Joseph said to his steward, Up, follow after the men; and when you do overtake them, say to them, Why have you rewarded evil for good?

44:5 Is not this it in which Adoni drinks, and whereby indeed he divines? you have done evil in so doing.

44:6 And he overtook them, and he spoke to them these same words.

44:7 And they said to him, Why said Adoni these words? ELOHIM forbid that your servants should do according to this thing:

44:8 Behold, the money, which we found in our sacks' mouths, we brought again to you out of the land of Canaan: how then should we steal out of your YEHOVAH’S house silver or gold?

44:9 With whomsoever of your servants it be found, both let him die, and we also will be Adoni’s slaves.

44:10 And he said, Now also let it be according to your words: he with whom it is found shall be my servant; and you shall be blameless.

44:11 Then they speedily took down every man his sack to the ground, and opened every man his sack.

44:12 And he searched, and began at the oldest, and left at the youngest: and the cup was found in Benjamin's sack.

44:13 Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and returned to the city.

44:14 And Judah and his brothers came to Joseph's house; for he was yet there: and they fell before him on the ground.

44:15 And Joseph said to them, What deed is this that you have done? know you not that such a man as I can certainly divine?

44:16 And Judah said, What shall we say to Adoni? what shall we speak?  or how shall we clear ourselves? ELOHIM has found out the iniquity of your servants: behold, we are Adoni’s servants, both we, and he also with whom the cup is found.

44:17 And he said, ELOHIM forbid that I should do so: but the man in whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, get you up in peace to your father.

44:18 Then Judah came near to him, and said, Oh Adoni, let your servant, I pray you, speak a word in Adoni’s ears, and let not your anger burn against your servant: for you are even as Pharaoh.

44:19 Adoni asked his servants, saying, Have you a father, or a brother?

44:20 And we said to Adoni, We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loves him.

44:21 And you said to your servants, Bring him down to me, that I may set my eyes on him.

44:22 And we said to Adoni, The lad cannot leave his father: for if he should leave his father, his father would die.

44:23 And you said to your servants, Except your youngest brother come down with you, you shall see my face no more.

44:24 And it came to pass when we came up to your servant my father, we told him the words of Adoni.

44:25 And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food.

44:26 And we said, We cannot go down: if our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down: for we may not see the man's face, except our youngest brother be with us.

44:27 And your servant my father said to us, You know that my wife bore me two sons:

44:28 And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since:

44:29 And if you take this also from me, and mischief befall him, you shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.

44:30 Now therefore when I come to your servant my father, and the lad be not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life;

44:31 It shall come to pass, when he sees that the lad is not with us, that he will die: and your servants shall bring down the gray hairs of your servant our father with sorrow to the grave.

44:32 For your servant became surety for the lad to my father, saying, If I bring him not to you, then I shall bear the blame to my father forever.

44:33 Now therefore, I pray you, let your servant abide instead of the lad a slave to Adoni; and let the lad go up with his brothers.

44:34 For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.


45:1 Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known to his brothers.

45:2 And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard.

45:3 And Joseph said to his brothers, I am Joseph; does my father yet live? And his brothers could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence.

45:4 And Joseph said to his brothers, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt.

45:5 Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you sold me here: for ELOHIM did send me before you to preserve life.

45:6 For these two years has the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be ripening nor harvest.

45:7 And ELOHIM sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

45:8 So now it was not you that sent me here, but ELOHIM: and he has made me a father to Pharaoh, and YEHOVAH of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.

45:9 Haste you, and go up to my father, and say to him, Thus said your son Joseph, ELOHIM has made me YEHOVAH of all Egypt: come down to me, tarry not:

45:10 And you shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near to me, you, and your children, and your children's children, and your flocks, and your herds, and all that you have:

45:11 And there will I nourish you; for yet there are five years of famine; lest you, and your household, and all that you have, come to poverty.

45:12 And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaks to you.

45:13 And you shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that you have seen; and you shall haste and bring down my father here.

45:14 And he fell on his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept on his neck.

45:15 Moreover he kissed all his brothers, and wept on them: and after that his brothers talked with him.

45:16 And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, Joseph's brothers are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants.

45:17 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Say to your brothers, This do you; lade your beasts, and go, get you to the land of Canaan;

45:18 And take your father and your households, and come to me: and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and you shall eat the fat of the land.

45:19 Now you are commanded, this do you; take you wagons out of the land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your father, and come.

45:20 Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is your's.

45:21 And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.

45:22 To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment.

45:23 And to his father he sent after this manner; ten asses laden with the good things of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corn and bread and meat for his father by the way.

45:24 So he sent his brothers away, and they departed: and he said to them, See that you fall not out by the way.

45:25 And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan to Jacob their father,

45:26 And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob's heart fainted, for he believed them not.

45:27 And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said to them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived:

45:28 And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die.


46:1 And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices to the ELOHEY of his father Isaac.

46:2 And ELOHIM spoke to Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.

46:3 And he said, I am ELOHIM, the ELOHEY of your father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of you a great nation:

46:4 I will go down with you into Egypt; and I will also surely bring you up again: and Joseph shall put his hand on your eyes.

46:5 And Jacob rose up from Beersheba: and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him.

46:6 And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed with him:

46:7 His sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and his sons' daughters, and all his seed brought he with him into Egypt.

46:8 And these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt, Jacob and his sons: Reuben, Jacob's firstborn.

46:9 And the sons of Reuben; Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.

46:10 And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman.

46:11 And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.

46:12 And the sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Pharez, and Zarah: but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan. And the sons of Pharez were Hezron and Hamul.

46:13 And the sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron.

46:14 And the sons of Zebulun; Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.

46:15 These be the sons of Leah, which she bore to Jacob in Padanaram, with his daughter Dinah: all the souls of his sons and his daughters were thirty and three.

46:16 And the sons of Gad; Ziphion, and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, and Arodi, and Areli.

46:17 And the sons of Asher; Jimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and Beriah, and Serah their sister: and the sons of Beriah; Heber, and Malchiel.

46:18 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his daughter, and these she bore to Jacob, even sixteen souls.

46:19 The sons of Rachel Jacob's wife; Joseph, and Benjamin.

46:20 And to Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bore to him.

46:21 And the sons of Benjamin were Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel, Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard.

46:22 These are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen.

46:23 And the sons of Dan; Hushim.

46:24 And the sons of Naphtali; Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer, and Shillem.

46:25 These are the sons of Bilhah, which Laban gave to Rachel his daughter, and she bore these to Jacob: all the souls were seven.

46:26 All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were three score and six;

46:27 And the sons of Joseph, which were born him in Egypt, were two souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were three score and ten.

46:28 And he sent Judah before him to Joseph, to direct his face to Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.

46:29 And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his father, to Goshen, and presented himself to him; and he fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.

46:30 And Israel said to Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen your face, because you are yet alive.

46:31 And Joseph said to his brothers, and to his father's house, I will go up, and show Pharaoh, and say to him, My brothers, and my father's house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come to me;

46:32 And the men are shepherds, for their trade has been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have.

46:33 And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say, What is your occupation?

46:34 That you shall say, Your servants' trade has been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that you may dwell in the land of Goshen; forevery shepherd is an abomination to the Egyptians.


47:1 Then Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brothers, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have, are come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land of Goshen.

47:2 And he took some of his brothers, even five men, and presented them to Pharaoh.

47:3 And Pharaoh said to his brothers, What is your occupation? And they said to Pharaoh, Your servants are shepherds, both we, and also our fathers.

47:4 They said morever to Pharaoh, For to sojourn in the land are we come; for your servants have no pasture for their flocks; for the famine is sore in the land of Canaan: now therefore, we pray you, let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen.

47:5 And Pharaoh spoke to Joseph, saying, Your father and your brothers are come to you:

47:6 The land of Egypt is before you; in the best of the land make your father and brothers to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if you know any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.

47:7 And Joseph brought in Jacob his father, and set him before Pharaoh: and Jacob blessed Pharaoh.

47:8 And Pharaoh said to Jacob, How old are you?

47:9 And Jacob said to Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained to the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.

47:10 And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.

47:11 And Joseph placed his father and his brothers, and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.

47:12 And Joseph nourished his father, and his brothers, and all his father's household, with bread, according to their families.

47:13 And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine.

47:14 And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.

47:15 And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came to Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in your presence? for the money fails.

47:16 And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.

47:17 And they brought their cattle to Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.

47:18 When that year was ended, they came to him the second year, and said to him, We will not hide it from Adoni, how that our money is spent; Adoni also has our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of Adoni, but our bodies, and our lands:

47:19 Why shall we die before your eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants to Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.

47:20 And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh's.

47:21 And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.

47:22 Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: why they sold not their lands.

47:23 Then Joseph said to the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: see, here is seed for you, and you shall sow the land.

47:24 And it shall come to pass in the increase, that you shall give the fifth part to Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones.

47:25 And they said, You have saved our lives: let us find grace in the sight of Adoni, and we will be Pharaoh's servants.

47:26 And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt to this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part, except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh's.

47:27 And Israel dwelled in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.

47:28 And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole age of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years.

47:29 And the time drew near that Israel must die: and he called his son Joseph, and said to him, If now I have found grace in your sight, put, I pray you, your hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me; bury me not, I pray you, in Egypt:

47:30 But I will lie with my fathers, and you shall carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their burial plot. And he said, I will do as you have said.

47:31 And he said, Swear to me. And he swore to him. And Israel bowed himself on the bed's head.


48:1 And it came to pass after these things, that one told Joseph, Behold, your father is sick: and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.

48:2 And one told Jacob, and said, Behold, your son Joseph comes to you: and Israel strengthened himself, and sat on the bed.

48:3 And Jacob said to Joseph, EL SHADDAY appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me,

48:4 And said to me, Behold, I will make you fruitful, and multiply you, and I will make of you a multitude of people; and will give this land to your seed after you for an everlasting possession.

48:5 And now your two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you into Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.

48:6 And your issue, which you beget after them, shall be yours, and shall be called after the name of their brothers in their inheritance.

48:7 And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan in the way, when yet there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath; the same is Bethlehem.

48:8 And Israel beheld Joseph's sons, and said, Who are these?

48:9 And Joseph said to his father, They are my sons, whom ELOHIM has given me in this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray you, to me, and I will bless them.

48:10 Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see.  And he brought them near to him; and he kissed them, and embraced them.

48:11 And Israel said to Joseph, I had not thought to see your face: and, see, ELOHIM has showed me also your seed.

48:12 And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the earth.

48:13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel's left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel's right hand, and brought them near to him.

48:14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it on Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.

48:15 And he blessed Joseph, and said, ELOHIM, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the ELOHIM which fed me all my life long to this day,

48:16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the middle of the earth.

48:17 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand on the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head to Manasseh's head.

48:18 And Joseph said to his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head.

48:19 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.

48:20 And he blessed them that day, saying, In you shall Israel bless, saying, ELOHIM make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh.

48:21 And Israel said to Joseph, Behold, I die: but ELOHIM shall be with you, and bring you again to the land of your fathers.

48:22 Moreover I have given to you one portion above your brothers, which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.


49:1 And Jacob called to his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

49:2 Gather yourselves together, and hear, you sons of Jacob; and listen to Israel your father.

49:3 Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

49:4 Unstable as water, you shall not excel; because you went up to your father's bed; then defiled you it: he went up to my couch.

49:5 Simeon and Levi are brothers; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.

49:6 O my soul, come not you into their secret; to their assembly, my honor, be not you united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their self-will they dig down a wall.

49:7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.

49:8 Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father's children shall bow down before you.

49:9 Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

49:10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and to him shall the gathering of the people be.

49:11 Binding his foal to the vine, and his ass's colt to the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:

49:12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

49:13 Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be to Zidon.

49:14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

49:15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant to tribute.

49:16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

49:17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that bites the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

49:18 I have waited for your salvation, YEHOVAH.

49:19 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.

49:20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

49:21 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he gives goodly words.

49:22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:

49:23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:

49:24 But his bow stayed in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty ELOHEY of Jacob; from there is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:

49:25 Even by the ELOHEY of your father, who shall help you; and by SHADDAY, who shall bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

49:26 The blessings of your father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brothers.

49:27 Benjamin shall shred as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.

49:28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spoke to them, and blessed them; everyone according to his blessing he blessed them.

49:29 And he charged them, and said to them, I am to be gathered to my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,

49:30 In the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a burial plot.

49:31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah.

49:32 The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from the children of Heth.

49:33 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered to his people.


50:1 And Joseph fell on his father's face, and wept on him, and kissed him.

50:2 And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel.

50:3 And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him three score and ten days.

50:4 And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spoke to the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,

50:5 My father made me swear, saying, See, I die: in my grave which I have dig for me in the land of Canaan, there shall you bury me. Now therefore let me go up, I pray you, and bury my father, and I will come again.

50:6 And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury your father, according as he made you swear.

50:7 And Joseph went up to bury his father: and with him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt,

50:8 And all the house of Joseph, and his brothers, and his father's house: only their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left in the land of Goshen.

50:9 And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a very great company.

50:10 And they came to the threshing floor of Atad, which is beyond Jordan, and there they mourned with a great and very sore lamentation: and he made a mourning for his father seven days.

50:11 And when the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning in the floor of Atad, they said, This is a grievous mourning to the Egyptians: why the name of it was called Abelmizraim, which is beyond Jordan.

50:12 And his sons did to him according as he commanded them:

50:13 For his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the field for a possession of a burial plot of Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre.

50:14 And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brothers, and all that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father.

50:15 And when Joseph's brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did to him.

50:16 And they sent a messenger to Joseph, saying, Your father did command before he died, saying,

50:17 So shall you say to Joseph, Forgive, I pray you now, the trespass of your brothers, and their sin; for they did to you evil: and now, we pray you, forgive the trespass of the servants of the ELOHEY of your father. And Joseph wept when they spoke to him.

50:18 And his brothers also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be your servants.

50:19 And Joseph said to them, Fear not: for am I in the place of ELOHIM?

50:20 But as for you, you thought evil against me; but ELOHIM meant it to good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

50:21 Now therefore fear you not: I will nourish you, and your little ones.  And he comforted them, and spoke kindly to them.

50:22 And Joseph dwelled in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years.

50:23 And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up on Joseph's knees.

50:24 And Joseph said to his brothers, I die: and ELOHIM will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land to the land which he swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

50:25 And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, ELOHIM will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from hence.

50:26 So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.

Exodus

1:1 Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.

1:2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,

1:3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,

1:4 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

1:5 And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.

1:6 And Joseph died, and all his brothers, and all that generation.

1:7 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.

1:8 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.

1:9 And he said to his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:

1:10 Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falls out any war, they join also to our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.

1:11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.

1:12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew.  And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.

1:13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigor:

1:14 And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigor.

1:15 And the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:

1:16 And he said, When you do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them on the stools; if it be a son, then you shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.

1:17 But the midwives feared ELOHIM, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.

1:18 And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said to them, Why have you done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?

1:19 And the midwives said to Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in to them.

1:20 Therefore ELOHIM dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.

1:21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared ELOHIM, that he made them houses.

1:22 And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born you shall cast into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive.


2:1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.

2:2 And the woman conceived, and bore a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.

2:3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink.

2:4 And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.

2:5 And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.

2:6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children.

2:7 Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call to you a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for you?

2:8 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother.

2:9 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give you your wages. And the women took the child, and nursed it.

2:10 And the child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.

2:11 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brothers, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brothers.

2:12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.

2:13 And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Why smite you your fellow?

2:14 And he said, Who made you a prince and a judge over us? intend you to kill me, as you killed the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.

2:15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelled in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.

2:16 Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.

2:17 And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.

2:18 And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that you are come so soon to day?

2:19 And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.

2:20 And he said to his daughters, And where is he? why is it that you have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread.

2:21 And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter.

2:22 And she bore him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.

2:23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up to ELOHIM by reason of the bondage.

2:24 And ELOHIM heard their groaning, and ELOHIM remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

2:25 And ELOHIM looked on the children of Israel, and ELOHIM had respect to them.


3:1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of ELOHIM, even to Horeb.

3:2 And the angel of YEHOVAH appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the middle of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

3:3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

3:4 And when YEHOVAH saw that he turned aside to see, ELOHIM called to him out of the middle of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

3:5 And he said, Draw not near here: put off your shoes from off your feet, for the place where on you stand is holy ground.

3:6 Moreover he said, I am the ELOHEY of your father, the ELOHEY of Abraham, the ELOHEY of Isaac, and the ELOHEY of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look on ELOHIM.

3:7 And YEHOVAH said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;

3:8 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good land and a large, to a land flowing with milk and honey; to the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.

3:9 Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come to me: and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them.

3:10 Come now therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh, that you may bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.

3:11 And Moses said to ELOHIM, Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?

3:12 And he said, Certainly I will be with you; and this shall be a token to you, that I have sent you: When you have brought forth the people out of Egypt, you shall serve ELOHIM on this mountain.

3:13 And Moses said to ELOHIM, Behold, when I come to the children of Israel, and shall say to them, The ELOHEY of your fathers has sent me to you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say to them?

3:14 And ELOHIM said to Moses, I WILL BE WHO I WILL BE: and he said, Thus shall you say to the children of Israel, I WILL BE has sent me to you.

3:15 And ELOHIM said moreover to Moses, Thus shall you say to the children of Israel, YEHOVAH, the ELOHEY of your fathers, the ELOHEY of Abraham, the ELOHEY of Isaac, and the ELOHEY of Jacob, has sent me to you: this is my name forever, and this is my memorial to all generations.

3:16 Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say to them, YEHOVAH ELOHEY of your fathers, the ELOHEY of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared to me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt:

3:17 And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, to a land flowing with milk and honey.

3:18 And they shall listen to your voice: and you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt, and you shall say to him, YEHOVAH ELOHEY of the Hebrews has met with us: and now let us go, we beseech you, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to YEHOVAH our ELOHIM.

3:19 And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand.

3:20 And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the middle thereof: and after that he will let you go.

3:21 And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when you go, you shall not go empty.

3:22 But every woman shall borrow of her neighbor, and of her that sojournes in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and you shall put them on your sons, and on your daughters; and you shall spoil the Egyptians.


4:1 And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor listen to my voice: for they will say, YEHOVAH has not appeared to you.

4:2 And YEHOVAH said to him, What is that in your hand? And he said, A rod.

4:3 And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.

4:4 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Put forth your hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand:

4:5 That they may believe that YEHOVAH ELOHEY of their fathers, the ELOHEY of Abraham, the ELOHEY of Isaac, and the ELOHEY of Jacob, has appeared to you.

4:6 And YEHOVAH said furthermore to him, Put now your hand into your bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.

4:7 And he said, Put your hand into your bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.

4:8 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe you, neither listen to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign.

4:9 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither listen to your voice, that you shall take of the water of the river, and pour it on the dry land: and the water which you take out of the river shall become blood on the dry land.

4:10 And Moses said to YEHOVAH, O ADONAY, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since you have spoken to your servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.

4:11 And YEHOVAH said to him, Who has made man's mouth? or who makes the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I YEHOVAH?

4:12 Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth, and teach you what you shall say.

4:13 And he said, O ADONAY, send, I pray you, by the hand of him whom you will send.

4:14 And the anger of YEHOVAH was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite your brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he comes forth to meet you: and when he sees you, he will be glad in his heart.

4:15 And you shall speak to him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with your mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what you shall do.

4:16 And he shall be your spokesman to the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to you instead of a mouth, and you shall be to him instead of ELOHIM.

4:17 And you shall take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do signs.

4:18 And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and said to him, Let me go, I pray you, and return to my brothers which are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.

4:19 And YEHOVAH said to Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought your life.

4:20 And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them on an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of ELOHIM in his hand.

4:21 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, When you go to return into Egypt, see that you do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in your hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.

4:22 And you shall say to Pharaoh, Thus said YEHOVAH, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:

4:23 And I say to you, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if you refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay your son, even your firstborn.

4:24 And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that YEHOVAH met him, and sought to kill him.

4:25 Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband are you to me.

4:26 So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband you are, because of the circumcision.

4:27 And YEHOVAH said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet Moses. And he went, and met him in the mount of ELOHIM, and kissed him.

4:28 And Moses told Aaron all the words of YEHOVAH who had sent him, and all the signs which he had commanded him.

4:29 And Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel:

4:30 And Aaron spoke all the words which YEHOVAH had spoken to Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.

4:31 And the people believed: and when they heard that YEHOVAH had visited the children of Israel, and that he had looked on their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.


5:1 And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus said YEHOVAH ELOHEY of ISRAEL, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast to me in the wilderness.

5:2 And Pharaoh said, Who is YEHOVAH, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not YEHOVAH, neither will I let Israel go.

5:3 And they said, The ELOHEY of the Hebrews has met with us: let us go, we pray you, three days' journey into the desert, and sacrifice to YEHOVAH our ELOHIM; lest he fall on us with pestilence, or with the sword.

5:4 And the king of Egypt said to them, Why do you, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you to your burdens.

5:5 And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many, and you make them rest from their burdens.

5:6 And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying,

5:7 You shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.

5:8 And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, you shall lay on them; you shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our ELOHIM.

5:9 Let there more work be laid on the men, that they may labor therein; and let them not regard vain words.

5:10 And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spoke to the people, saying, Thus said Pharaoh, I will not give you straw.

5:11 Go you, get you straw where you can find it: yet not ought of your work shall be diminished.

5:12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.

5:13 And the taskmasters hurried them, saying, Fulfill your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw.

5:14 And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Why have you not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?

5:15 Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried to Pharaoh, saying, Why deal you thus with your servants?

5:16 There is no straw given to your servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, your servants are beaten; but the fault is in your own people.

5:17 But he said, You are idle, you are idle: therefore you say, Let us go and do sacrifice to YEHOVAH.

5:18 Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall you deliver the tale of bricks.

5:19 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, You shall not minish ought from your bricks of your daily task.

5:20 And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh:

5:21 And they said to them, YEHOVAH look on you, and judge; because you have made our smell to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.

5:22 And Moses returned to YEHOVAH, and said, ADONAY, why have you so evil entreated this people? why is it that you have sent me?

5:23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has done evil to this people; neither have you delivered your people at all.


6:1 Then YEHOVAH said to Moses, Now shall you see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.

6:2 And ELOHIM spoke to Moses, and said to him, I am YEHOVAH:

6:3 And I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, by the name of EL SHADDAY, but by my name YEHOVAH was I not known to them.

6:4 And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers.

6:5 And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant.

6:6 Why say to the children of Israel, I am YEHOVAH, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

6:7 And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you an ELOHIM: and you shall know that I am YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM, which brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.

6:8 And I will bring you in to the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am YEHOVAH.

6:9 And Moses spoke so to the children of Israel: but they listened not to Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.

6:10 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

6:11 Go in, speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.

6:12 And Moses spoke before YEHOVAH, saying, Behold, the children of Israel have not listened to me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips?

6:13 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses and to Aaron, and gave them a charge to the children of Israel, and to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.

6:14 These be the heads of their fathers' houses: The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel; Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi: these be the families of Reuben.

6:15 And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman: these are the families of Simeon.

6:16 And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari: and the years of the life of Levi were an hundred thirty and seven years.

6:17 The sons of Gershon; Libni, and Shimi, according to their families.

6:18 And the sons of Kohath; Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel: and the years of the life of Kohath were an hundred thirty and three years.

6:19 And the sons of Merari; Mahali and Mushi: these are the families of Levi according to their generations.

6:20 And Amram took him Jochebed his father's sister to wife; and she bore him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram were an hundred and thirty and seven years.

6:21 And the sons of Izhar; Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri.

6:22 And the sons of Uzziel; Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Zithri.

6:23 And Aaron took him Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab, sister of Naashon, to wife; and she bore him Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

6:24 And the sons of Korah; Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph: these are the families of the Korhites.

6:25 And Eleazar Aaron's son took him one of the daughters of Putiel to wife; and she bore him Phinehas: these are the heads of the fathers of the Levites according to their families.

6:26 These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom YEHOVAH said, Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their armies.

6:27 These are they which spoke to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that Moses and Aaron.

6:28 And it came to pass on the day when YEHOVAH spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt,

6:29 That YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying, I am YEHOVAH: speak you to Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say to you.

6:30 And Moses said before YEHOVAH, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh listen to me?


7:1 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, See, I have made you an elohim to Pharaoh: and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet.

7:2 You shall speak all that I command you: and Aaron your brother shall speak to Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land.

7:3 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.

7:4 But Pharaoh shall not listen to you, that I may lay my hand on Egypt, and bring forth my armies, and my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.

7:5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am YEHOVAH, when I stretch forth my hand on Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.

7:6 And Moses and Aaron did as YEHOVAH commanded them, so did they.

7:7 And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spoke to Pharaoh.

7:8 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,

7:9 When Pharaoh shall speak to you, saying, Show a miracle for you: then you shall say to Aaron, Take your rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.

7:10 And Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and they did so as YEHOVAH had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.

7:11 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.

7:12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.

7:13 And he hardened Pharaoh's heart, that he listened not to them; as YEHOVAH had said.

7:14 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Pharaoh's heart is hardened, he refuses to let the people go.

7:15 Get you to Pharaoh in the morning; see, he goes out to the water; and you shall stand by the river's brink against he come; and the rod which was turned to a serpent shall you take in your hand.

7:16 And you shall say to him, YEHOVAH ELOHEY of the Hebrews has sent me to you, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, till now you would not hear.

7:17 Thus said YEHOVAH, In this you shall know that I am YEHOVAH: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in my hand on the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.

7:18 And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall loathe to drink of the water of the river.

7:19 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, Say to Aaron, Take your rod, and stretch out your hand on the waters of Egypt, on their streams, on their rivers, and on their ponds, and on all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.

7:20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as YEHOVAH commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood.

7:21 And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.

7:22 And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, neither did he listen to them; as YEHOVAH had said.

7:23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he set his heart to this also.

7:24 And all the Egyptians dig round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river.

7:25 And seven days were fulfilled, after that YEHOVAH had smitten the river.


8:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, Go to Pharaoh, and say to him, Thus said YEHOVAH, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

8:2 And if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all your borders with frogs:

8:3 And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into your house, and into your bedchamber, and on your bed, and into the house of your servants, and on your people, and into your ovens, and into your kneading troughs:

8:4 And the frogs shall come up both on you, and on your people, and on all your servants.

8:5 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch forth your hand with your rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up on the land of Egypt.

8:6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.

8:7 And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs on the land of Egypt.

8:8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Entreat YEHOVAH, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice to YEHOVAH.

8:9 And Moses said to Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I entreat for you, and for your servants, and for your people, to destroy the frogs from you and your houses, that they may remain in the river only?

8:10 And he said, Tomorrow. And he said, Be it according to your word: that you may know that there is none like to YEHOVAH our ELOHIM.

8:11 And the frogs shall depart from you, and from your houses, and from your servants, and from your people; they shall remain in the river only.

8:12 And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried to YEHOVAH because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh.

8:13 And YEHOVAH did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.

8:14 And they gathered them together on heaps: and the land stank.

8:15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and listened not to them; as YEHOVAH had said.

8:16 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch out your rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

8:17 And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

8:18 And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice on man, and on beast.

8:19 Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, This is the finger of ELOHIM: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he listened not to them; as YEHOVAH had said.

8:20 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; see, he comes forth to the water; and say to him, Thus said YEHOVAH, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

8:21 Else, if you will not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you, and on your servants, and on your people, and into your houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground where on they are.

8:22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end you may know that I am YEHOVAH in the middle of the earth.

8:23 And I will put a division between my people and your people: to morrow shall this sign be.

8:24 And YEHOVAH did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.

8:25 And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go you, sacrifice to ELOHEICHEM in the land.

8:26 And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to YEHOVAH our ELOHIM: see, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us?

8:27 We will go three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to YEHOVAH our ELOHIM, as he shall command us.

8:28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that you may sacrifice to YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM in the wilderness; only you shall not go very far away: entreat for me.

8:29 And Moses said, Behold, I go out from you, and I will entreat YEHOVAH that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to YEHOVAH.

8:30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and entreated YEHOVAH.

8:31 And YEHOVAH did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.

8:32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.


9:1 Then YEHOVAH said to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus said YEHOVAH ELOHEY of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

9:2 For if you refuse to let them go, and will hold them still,

9:3 Behold, the hand of YEHOVAH is on your cattle which is in the field, on the horses, on the asses, on the camels, on the oxen, and on the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.

9:4 And YEHOVAH shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children's of Israel.

9:5 And YEHOVAH appointed a set time, saying, Tomorrow YEHOVAH shall do this thing in the land.

9:6 And YEHOVAH did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.

9:7 And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.

9:8 And YEHOVAH said to Moses and to Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.

9:9 And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains on man, and on beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.

9:10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains on man, and on beast.

9:11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was on the magicians, and on all the Egyptians.

9:12 And YEHOVAH hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he listened not to them; as YEHOVAH had spoken to Moses.

9:13 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say to him, Thus said YEHOVAH ELOHEY of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

9:14 For I will at this time send all my plagues on your heart, and on your servants, and on your people; that you may know that there is none like me in all the earth.

9:15 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite you and your people with pestilence; and you shall be cut off from the earth.

9:16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised you up, for to show in you my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.

9:17 As yet exalt you yourself against my people, that you will not let them go?

9:18 Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as has not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.

9:19 Send therefore now, and gather your cattle, and all that you have in the field; for on every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down on them, and they shall die.

9:20 He that feared the word of YEHOVAH among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:

9:21 And he that regarded not the word of YEHOVAH left his servants and his cattle in the field.

9:22 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, on man, and on beast, and on every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.

9:23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and YEHOVAH sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along on the ground; and YEHOVAH rained hail on the land of Egypt.

9:24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

9:25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and broke every tree of the field.

9:26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

9:27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, I have sinned this time: YEHOVAH is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.

9:28 Entreat YEHOVAH for it is enough that there be no more mighty thunder and hail; and I will let you go, and you shall stay no longer.

9:29 And Moses said to him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands to YEHOVAH; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that you may know how that the earth is YEHOVAH’S.

9:30 But as for you and your servants, I know that you will not yet fear YEHOVAH ELOHIM.

9:31 And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was in bloom.

9:32 But the wheat and the rye were not smitten: for they were not grown up.

9:33 And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his hands to YEHOVAH: and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured on the earth.

9:34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.

9:35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as YEHOVAH had spoken by Moses.


10:1 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might show these my signs before him:

10:2 And that you may tell in the ears of your son, and of your son's son, what things I have worked in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that you may know how that I am YEHOVAH.

10:3 And Moses and Aaron came in to Pharaoh, and said to him, Thus said YEHOVAH ELOHEY of the Hebrews, How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.

10:4 Else, if you refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into your coast:

10:5 And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remains to you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which grows for you out of the field:

10:6 And they shall fill your houses, and the houses of all your servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither your fathers, nor your fathers' fathers have seen, since the day that they were on the earth to this day. And he turned himself, and went out from Pharaoh.

10:7 And Pharaoh's servants said to him, How long shall this man be a snare to us? let the men go, that they may serve YEHOVAH ELOHEIHEM: know you not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

10:8 And Moses and Aaron were brought again to Pharaoh: and he said to them, Go, serve YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM: but who are they that shall go?

10:9 And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast to YEHOVAH.

10:10 And he said to them, Let YEHOVAH be so with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.

10:11 Not so: go now you that are men, and serve YEHOVAH; for that you did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.

10:12 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up on the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail has left.

10:13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and YEHOVAH brought an east wind on the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.

10:14 And the locust went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.

10:15 For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the land of Egypt.

10:16 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM, and against you.

10:17 Now therefore forgive, I pray you, my sin only this once, and entreat YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM, that he may take away from me this death only.

10:18 And he went out from Pharaoh, and entreated YEHOVAH.

10:19 And YEHOVAH turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.

10:20 But YEHOVAH hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.

10:21 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.

10:22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:

10:23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

10:24 And Pharaoh called to Moses, and said, Go you, serve YEHOVAH; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you.

10:25 And Moses said, You must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice to YEHOVAH our ELOHIM.

10:26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve YEHOVAH our ELOHIM; and we know not with what we must serve YEHOVAH, until we come thither.

10:27 But YEHOVAH hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go.

10:28 And Pharaoh said to him, Get you from me, take heed to yourself, see my face no more; for in that day you see my face you shall die.

10:29 And Moses said, You have spoken well, I will see your face again no more.


11:1 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Yet will I bring one plague more on Pharaoh, and on Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether.

11:2 Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbor, and every woman of her neighbor, jewels of silver and jewels of gold.

11:3 And YEHOVAH gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians.  Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people.

11:4 And Moses said, Thus said YEHOVAH, About midnight will I go out into the middle of Egypt:

11:5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sits on his throne, even to the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.

11:6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.

11:7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that you may know how that YEHOVAH does put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

11:8 And all these your servants shall come down to me, and bow down themselves to me, saying, Get you out, and all the people that follow you: and after that I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh in a great anger.

11:9 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Pharaoh shall not listen to you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.

11:10 And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and YEHOVAH hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.


12:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying,

12:2 This month shall be to you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

12:3 Speak you to all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

12:4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

12:5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: you shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

12:6 And you shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

12:8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

12:9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the entrails thereof.

12:10 And you shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remains of it until the morning you shall burn with fire.

12:11 And thus shall you eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste: it is YEHOVAH’S passover.

12:12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the elohims of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am YEHOVAH.

12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token on the houses where you are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

12:14 And this day shall be to you for a memorial; and you shall keep it a feast to YEHOVAH throughout your generations; you shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever.

12:15 Seven days shall you eat unleavened bread; even the first day you shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

12:16 And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.

12:17 And you shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall you observe this day in your generations by an ordinance forever.

12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

12:19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whoever eats that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.

12:20 You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall you eat unleavened bread.

12:21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said to them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.

12:22 And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.

12:23 For YEHOVAH will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood on the lintel, and on the two side posts, YEHOVAH will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in to your houses to smite you.

12:24 And you shall observe this thing for an ordinance to you and to your sons forever.

12:25 And it shall come to pass, when you be come to the land which YEHOVAH will give you, according as he has promised, that you shall keep this service.

12:26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say to you, What mean you by this service?

12:27 That you shall say, It is the sacrifice of YEHOVAH’S passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.

12:28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as YEHOVAH had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

12:29 And it came to pass, that at midnight YEHOVAH smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.

12:30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.

12:31 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both you and the children of Israel; and go, serve YEHOVAH, as you have said.

12:32 Also take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also.

12:33 And the Egyptians were urgent on the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead men.

12:34 And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading troughs being bound up in their clothes on their shoulders.

12:35 And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment:

12:36 And YEHOVAH gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent to them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.

12:37 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children.

12:38 And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.

12:39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victual.

12:40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelled in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.

12:41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of YEHOVAH went out from the land of Egypt.

12:42 It is a night to be much observed to YEHOVAH for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of YEHOVAH to be observed of all the children of Israel in their generations.

12:43 And YEHOVAH said to Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:

12:44 But every man's servant that is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.

12:45 A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.

12:46 In one house shall it be eaten; you shall not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall you break a bone thereof.

12:47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.

12:48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with you, and will keep the passover to YEHOVAH, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.

12:49 One law shall be to him that is home born, and to the stranger that sojournes among you.

12:50 Thus did all the children of Israel; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

12:51 And it came to pass the selfsame day, that YEHOVAH did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.


13:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

13:2 Sanctify to me all the firstborn, whatever opens the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.

13:3 And Moses said to the people, Remember this day, in which you came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand YEHOVAH brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.

13:4 This day came you out in the month Abib.

13:5 And it shall be when YEHOVAH shall bring you into the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he swore to your fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, that you shall keep this service in this month.

13:6 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to YEHOVAH.

13:7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with you, neither shall there be leaven seen with you in all your quarters.

13:8 And you shall show your son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which YEHOVAH did to me when I came forth out of Egypt.

13:9 And it shall be for a sign to you on your hand, and for a memorial between your eyes, that YEHOVAH’S law may be in your mouth: for with a strong hand has YEHOVAH brought you out of Egypt.

13:10 You shall therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to year.

13:11 And it shall be when YEHOVAH shall bring you into the land of the Canaanites, as he swore to you and to your fathers, and shall give it you,

13:12 That you shall set apart to YEHOVAH all that opens the matrix, and every firstling that comes of a beast which you have; the males shall be YEHOVAH’S.

13:13 And every firstling of an ass you shall redeem with a lamb; and if you will not redeem it, then you shall break his neck: and all the firstborn of man among your children shall you redeem.

13:14 And it shall be when your son asks you in time to come, saying, What is this? that you shall say to him, By strength of hand YEHOVAH brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:

13:15 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that YEHOVAH slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to YEHOVAH all that opens the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.

13:16 And it shall be for a token on your hand, and for frontlets between your eyes: for by strength of hand YEHOVAH brought us forth out of Egypt.

13:17 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that ELOHIM led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for ELOHIM said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt:

13:18 But ELOHIM led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.

13:19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had straightly sworn the children of Israel, saying, ELOHIM will surely visit you; and you shall carry up my bones away hence with you.

13:20 And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness.

13:21 And YEHOVAH went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:

13:22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.


14:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

14:2 Speak to the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon: before it shall you encamp by the sea.

14:3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness has shut them in.

14:4 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honored on Pharaoh, and on all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am YEHOVAH. And they did so.

14:5 And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?

14:6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:

14:7 And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over everyone of them.

14:8 And YEHOVAH hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand.

14:9 But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.

14:10 And when Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out to YEHOVAH.

14:11 And they said to Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? why have you dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

14:12 Is not this the word that we did tell you in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

14:13 And Moses said to the people, Fear you not, stand still, and see the salvation of YEHOVAH, which he will show to you to day: for the Egyptians whom you have seen to day, you shall see them again no more forever.

14:14 YEHOVAH shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.

14:15 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Why cry you to me? speak to the children of Israel, that they go forward:

14:16 But lift you up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the middle of the sea.

14:17 And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honor on Pharaoh, and on all his host, on his chariots, and on his horsemen.

14:18 And the Egyptians shall know that I am YEHOVAH, when I have gotten me honor on Pharaoh, on his chariots, and on his horsemen.

14:19 And the angel of ELOHIM, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them:

14:20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.

14:21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and YEHOVAH caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.

14:22 And the children of Israel went into the middle of the sea on the dry ground: and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand, and on their left.

14:23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the middle of the sea, even all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.

14:24 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch YEHOVAH looked to the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,

14:25 And took off their chariot wheels, that they drove them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for YEHOVAH fights for them against the Egyptians.

14:26 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Stretch out your hand over the sea, that the waters may come again on the Egyptians, on their chariots, and on their horsemen.

14:27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and YEHOVAH overthrew the Egyptians in the middle of the sea.

14:28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.

14:29 But the children of Israel walked on dry land in the middle of the sea; and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand, and on their left.

14:30 Thus YEHOVAH saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the sea shore.

14:31 And Israel saw that great work which YEHOVAH did on the Egyptians: and the people feared YEHOVAH, and believed YEHOVAH, and his servant Moses.


15:1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song to YEHOVAH, and spoke, saying, I will sing to YEHOVAH, for he has triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.

15:2 YEHOVAH is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is ELOHAY, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's ELOHIM, and I will exalt him.

15:3 YEHOVAH is a man of war: YEHOVAH is his name.

15:4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host has he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.

15:5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.

15:6 Your right hand, YEHOVAH, is become glorious in power: your right hand, YEHOVAH, has dashed in pieces the enemy.

15:7 And in the greatness of your excellency you have overthrown them that rose up against you: you sent forth your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.

15:8 And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

15:9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied on them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.

15:10 You did blow with your wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

15:11 Who is like to you, YEHOVAH, among the elohims? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

15:12 You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them.

15:13 You in your mercy have led forth the people which you have redeemed: you have guided them in your strength to your holy habitation.

15:14 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.

15:15 Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold on them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.

15:16 Fear and dread shall fall on them; by the greatness of your arm they shall be as still as a stone; till your people pass over, YEHOVAH, till the people pass over, which you have purchased.

15:17 You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, in the place, YEHOVAH, which you have made for you to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, YEHOVAH, which your hands have established.

15:18 YEHOVAH shall reign forever and ever.

15:19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and YEHOVAH brought again the waters of the sea on them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the middle of the sea.

15:20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand; and all the women went out after her with tambourines and with dances.

15:21 And Miriam answered them, Sing you to YEHOVAH, for he has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.

15:22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.

15:23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.

15:24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

15:25 And he cried to YEHOVAH; and YEHOVAH showed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,

15:26 And said, If you will diligently listen to the voice of YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM, and will do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases on you, which I have brought on the Egyptians: for I am YEHOVAH that heals you.

15:27 And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and three score and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.


16:1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came to the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.

16:2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:

16:3 And the children of Israel said to them, Would to ELOHIM we had died by the hand of YEHOVAH in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for you have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.

16:4 Then said YEHOVAH to Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

16:5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.

16:6 And Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, At even, then you shall know that YEHOVAH has brought you out from the land of Egypt:

16:7 And in the morning, then you shall see the glory of YEHOVAH; for that he hears your murmurings against YEHOVAH: and what are we, that you murmur against us?

16:8 And Moses said, This shall be, when YEHOVAH shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that YEHOVAH hears your murmurings which you murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against YEHOVAH.

16:9 And Moses spoke to Aaron, Say to all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before YEHOVAH: for he has heard your murmurings.

16:10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of YEHOVAH appeared in the cloud.

16:11 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

16:12 I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak to them, saying, At even you shall eat flesh, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread; and you shall know that I am YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM.

16:13 And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host.

16:14 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, on the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.

16:15 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they knew not what it was. And Moses said to them, This is the bread which YEHOVAH has given you to eat.

16:16 This is the thing which YEHOVAH has commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer forevery man, according to the number of your persons; take you every man for them which are in his tents.

16:17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.

16:18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.

16:19 And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.

16:20 Notwithstanding they listened not to Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and Moses was wroth with them.

16:21 And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.

16:22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.

16:23 And he said to them, This is that which YEHOVAH has said, Tomorrow is the rest of the holy sabbath to YEHOVAH: bake that which you will bake to day, and seethe that you will seethe; and that which remains over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

16:24 And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein.

16:25 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath to YEHOVAH: to day you shall not find it in the field.

16:26 Six days you shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.

16:27 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.

16:28 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, How long refuse you to keep my commandments and my laws?

16:29 See, for that YEHOVAH has given you the sabbath, therefore he gives you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide you every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.

16:30 So the people rested on the seventh day.

16:31 And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.

16:32 And Moses said, This is the thing which YEHOVAH commands, Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see the bread with which I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.

16:33 And Moses said to Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of manna therein, and lay it up before YEHOVAH, to be kept for your generations.

16:34 As YEHOVAH commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.

16:35 And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came to the borders of the land of Canaan.

16:36 Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.


17:1 And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of YEHOVAH, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.

17:2 Why the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said to them, Why chide you with me? why do you tempt YEHOVAH?

17:3 And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Why is this that you have brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?

17:4 And Moses cried to YEHOVAH, saying, What shall I do to this people? they be almost ready to stone me.

17:5 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Go on before the people, and take with you of the elders of Israel; and your rod, with which you smote the river, take in your hand, and go.

17:6 Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.

17:7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted YEHOVAH, saying, Is YEHOVAH among us, or not?

17:8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.

17:9 And Moses said to Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of ELOHIM in my hand.

17:10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.

17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.

17:12 But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.

17:13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.

17:14 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.

17:15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:

17:16 For he said, Because YEHOVAH has sworn that YEHOVAH will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.


18:1 When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father in law, heard of all that ELOHIM had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, and that YEHOVAH had brought Israel out of Egypt;

18:2 Then Jethro, Moses' father in law, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her back,

18:3 And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom; for he said, I have been an alien in a strange land:

18:4 And the name of the other was Eliezer; for the ELOHEY of my father, said he, was my help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh:

18:5 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, came with his sons and his wife to Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at the mount of ELOHIM:

18:6 And he said to Moses, I your father in law Jethro am come to you, and your wife, and her two sons with her.

18:7 And Moses went out to meet his father in law, and did obeisance, and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare; and they came into the tent.

18:8 And Moses told his father in law all that YEHOVAH had done to Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, and all the travail that had come on them by the way, and how YEHOVAH delivered them.

18:9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which YEHOVAH had done to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians.

18:10 And Jethro said, Blessed be YEHOVAH, who has delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh, who has delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.

18:11 Now I know that YEHOVAH is greater than all elohims: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.

18:12 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, took a burnt offering and sacrifices for ELOHIM: and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel, to eat bread with Moses' father in law before ELOHIM.

18:13 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge the people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning to the evening.

18:14 And when Moses' father in law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that you do to the people? why sit you yourself alone, and all the people stand by you from morning to even?

18:15 And Moses said to his father in law, Because the people come to me to inquire of ELOHIM:

18:16 When they have a matter, they come to me; and I judge between one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of ELOHIM, and his laws.

18:17 And Moses' father in law said to him, The thing that you do is not good.

18:18 You will surely wear away, both you, and this people that is with you: for this thing is too heavy for you; you are not able to perform it yourself alone.

18:19 Listen now to my voice, I will give you counsel, and ELOHIM shall be with you: Be you for the people to ELOHIM-ward, that you may bring the causes to ELOHIM:

18:20 And you shall teach them ordinances and laws, and shall show them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.

18:21 Moreover you shall provide out of all the people able men, such as fear ELOHIM, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

18:22 And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring to you, but every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for yourself, and they shall bear the burden with you.

18:23 If you shall do this thing, and ELOHIM command you so, then you shall be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their place in peace.

18:24 So Moses listened to the voice of his father in law, and did all that he had said.

18:25 And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.

18:26 And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they brought to Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves.

18:27 And Moses let his father in law depart; and he went his way into his own land.


19:1 In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.

19:2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.

19:3 And Moses went up to ELOHIM, and YEHOVAH called to him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shall you say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;

19:4 You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings, and brought you to myself.

19:5 Now therefore, if you will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then you shall be a peculiar treasure to me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

19:6 And you shall be to me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation.  These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.

19:7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which YEHOVAH commanded him.

19:8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that YEHOVAH has spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people to YEHOVAH.

19:9 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, See, I come to you in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with you, and believe you forever.  And Moses told the words of the people to YEHOVAH.

19:10 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Go to the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes,

19:11 And be ready against the third day: for the third day YEHOVAH will come down in the sight of all the people on mount Sinai.

19:12 And you shall set bounds to the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, that you go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whoever touches the mount shall be surely put to death:

19:13 There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet sounds long, they shall come up to the mount.

19:14 And Moses went down from the mount to the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes.

19:15 And he said to the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at your wives.

19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightning, and a thick cloud on the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.

19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with ELOHIM; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.

19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because YEHOVAH descended on it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spoke, and ELOHIM answered him by a voice.

19:20 And YEHOVAH came down on mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and YEHOVAH called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.

19:21 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through to YEHOVAH to gaze, and many of them perish.

19:22 And let the priests also, which come near to YEHOVAH, sanctify themselves, lest YEHOVAH break forth on them.

19:23 And Moses said to YEHOVAH, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for you charged us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it.

19:24 And YEHOVAH said to him, Away, get you down, and you shall come up, you, and Aaron with you: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up to YEHOVAH, lest he break forth on them.

19:25 So Moses went down to the people, and spoke to them.


20:1 And ELOHIM spoke all these words, saying,

20:2 I am YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

20:3 You shall have no other elohims before me.

20:4 You shall not make to you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

20:5 You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM am a jealous ELOHIM, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

20:6 And showing mercy to thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

20:7 You shall not take the name of YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM in vain; for YEHOVAH will not hold him guiltless that takes his name in vain.

20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

20:9 Six days shall you labor, and do all your work:

20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates:

20:11 For in six days YEHOVAH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: why YEHOVAH blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

20:12 Honor your father and your mother: that your days may be long on the land which YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM gives you.

20:13 You shall not kill.

20:14 You shall not commit adultery.

20:15 You shall not steal.

20:16 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

20:17 You shall not covet your neighbor's house, you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is your neighbor's.

20:18 And all the people saw the thunder, and the lightning, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.

20:19 And they said to Moses, Speak you with us, and we will hear: but let not ELOHIM speak with us, lest we die.

20:20 And Moses said to the people, Fear not: for ELOHIM is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that you sin not.

20:21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near to the thick darkness where ELOHIM was.

20:22 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, You have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.

20:23 You shall not make with me elohims of silver, neither shall you make to you elohims of gold.

20:24 An altar of earth you shall make to me, and shall sacrifice thereon your burnt offerings, and your peace offerings, your sheep, and your oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come to you, and I will bless you.

20:25 And if you will make me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stone: for if you lift up your tool on it, you have polluted it.

20:26 Neither shall you go up by steps to my altar, that your nakedness be not discovered thereon.


21:1 Now these are the judgments which you shall set before them.

21:2 If you buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.

21:3 If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him.

21:4 If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.

21:5 And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free:

21:6 Then his master shall bring him to the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or to the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him forever.

21:7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do.

21:8 If she please not her master, who has betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her to a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he has dealt deceitfully with her.

21:9 And if he have betrothed her to his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.

21:10 If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.

21:11 And if he do not these three to her, then shall she go out free without money.

21:12 He that smites a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.

21:13 And if a man lie not in wait, but ELOHIM deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint you a place where he shall flee.

21:14 But if a man come presumptuously on his neighbor, to slay him with guile; you shall take him from my altar, that he may die.

21:15 And he that smites his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.

21:16 And he that steals a man, and sells him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

21:17 And he that curses his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.

21:18 And if men strive together, and one smite another with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keeps his bed:

21:19 If he rise again, and walk abroad on his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.

21:20 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished.

21:21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.

21:22 If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay on him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.

21:23 And if any mischief follow, then you shall give life for life,

21:24 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,

21:25 Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.

21:26 And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid, that it perish; he shall let him go free for his eye's sake.

21:27 And if he smite out his manservant's tooth, or his maidservant's tooth; he shall let him go free for his tooth's sake.

21:28 If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.

21:29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it has been testified to his owner, and he has not kept him in, but that he has killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.

21:30 If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for the ransom of his life whatever is laid on him.

21:31 Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done to him.

21:32 If the ox shall push a manservant or a maidservant; he shall give to their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.

21:33 And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit, and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein;

21:34 The owner of the pit shall make it good, and give money to the owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his.

21:35 And if one man's ox hurt another's, that he die; then they shall sell the live ox, and divide the money of it; and the dead ox also they shall divide.

21:36 Or if it be known that the ox has used to push in time past, and his owner has not kept him in; he shall surely pay ox for ox; and the dead shall be his own.


22:1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.

22:2 If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him.

22:3 If the sun be risen on him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

22:4 If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.

22:5 If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in his beast, and shall feed in another man's field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make restitution.

22:6 If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the stacks of corn, or the standing corn, or the field, be consumed therewith; he that kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.

22:7 If a man shall deliver to his neighbor money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man's house; if the thief be found, let him pay double.

22:8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought to the judges, to see whether he have put his hand to his neighbor's goods.

22:9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing which another challenges to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double to his neighbor.

22:10 If a man deliver to his neighbor an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it:

22:11 Then shall an oath of YEHOVAH be between them both, that he has not put his hand to his neighbor's goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.

22:12 And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution to the owner thereof.

22:13 If it be torn in pieces, then let him bring it for witness, and he shall not make good that which was torn.

22:14 And if a man borrow ought of his neighbor, and it be hurt, or die, the owner thereof being not with it, he shall surely make it good.

22:15 But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good: if it be an hired thing, it came for his hire.

22:16 And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.

22:17 If her father utterly refuse to give her to him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

22:18 You shall not suffer a witch to live.

22:19 Whoever lies with a beast shall surely be put to death.

22:20 He that sacrifices to any elohim, save to YEHOVAH only, he shall be utterly destroyed.

22:21 You shall neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

22:22 You shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.

22:23 If you afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all to me, I will surely hear their cry;

22:24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.

22:25 If you lend money to any of my people that is poor by you, you shall not be to him as an usurer, neither shall you lay on him usury.

22:26 If you at all take your neighbor's raiment to pledge, you shall deliver it to him by that the sun goes down:

22:27 For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he cries to me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.

22:28 You shall not revile the elohims, nor curse the ruler of your people.

22:29 You shall not delay to offer the first of your ripe fruits, and of your liquors: the firstborn of your sons shall you give to me.

22:30 Likewise shall you do with your oxen, and with your sheep: seven days it shall be with his dam; on the eighth day you shall give it me.

22:31 And you shall be holy men to me: neither shall you eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; you shall cast it to the dogs.


23:1 You shall not raise a false report: put not your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

23:2 You shall not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shall you speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:

23:3 Neither shall you countenance a poor man in his cause.

23:4 If you meet your enemy's ox or his ass going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again.

23:5 If you see the ass of him that hates you lying under his burden, and would forbear to help him, you shall surely help with him.

23:6 You shall not wrest the judgment of your poor in his cause.

23:7 Keep you far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay you not: for I will not justify the wicked.

23:8 And you shall take no gift: for the gift blinds the wise, and perverts the words of the righteous.

23:9 Also you shall not oppress a stranger: for you know the heart of a stranger, seeing you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

23:10 And six years you shall sow your land, and shall gather in the fruits thereof:

23:11 But the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie still; that the poor of your people may eat: and what they leave the beasts of the field shall eat. In like manner you shall deal with your vineyard, and with your olive grove.

23:12 Six days you shall do your work, and on the seventh day you shall rest: that your ox and your ass may rest, and the son of your handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.

23:13 And in all things that I have said to you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other elohims, neither let it be heard out of your mouth.

23:14 Three times you shall keep a feast to me in the year.

23:15 You shall keep the feast of unleavened bread: you shall eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded you, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it you came out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:

23:16 And the feast of harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you have sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when you have gathered in your labors out of the field.

23:17 Three items in the year all your males shall appear before YEHOVAH ELOHIM.

23:18 You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread; neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain until the morning.

23:19 The first of the first fruits of your land you shall bring into the house of YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM. You shall not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.

23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before you, to keep you in the way, and to bring you into the place which I have prepared.

23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.

23:22 But if you shall indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and an adversary to your adversaries.

23:23 For my Angel shall go before you, and bring you in to the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.

23:24 You shall not bow down to their elohims, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but you shall utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.

23:25 And you shall serve YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM, and he shall bless your bread, and your water; and I will take sickness away from the middle of you.

23:26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in your land: the number of your days I will fulfill.

23:27 I will send my fear before you, and will destroy all the people to whom you shall come, and I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you.

23:28 And I will send hornets before you, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before you.

23:29 I will not drive them out from before you in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against you.

23:30 By little and little I will drive them out from before you, until you be increased, and inherit the land.

23:31 And I will set your bounds from the Red sea even to the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert to the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and you shall drive them out before you.

23:32 You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their elohims.

23:33 They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against me: for if you serve their elohims, it will surely be a snare to you.


24:1 And he said to Moses, Come up to YEHOVAH, you, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship you afar off.

24:2 And Moses alone shall come near YEHOVAH: but they shall not come near; neither shall the people go up with him.

24:3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of YEHOVAH, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which YEHOVAH has said will we do.

24:4 And Moses wrote all the words of YEHOVAH, and rose up early in the morning, and built an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.

24:5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen to YEHOVAH.

24:6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basins; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.

24:7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that YEHOVAH has said will we do, and be obedient.

24:8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which YEHOVAH has made with you concerning all these words.

24:9 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel:

24:10 And they saw the ELOHEY of ISRAEL: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.

24:11 And on the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw ELOHIM, and did eat and drink.

24:12 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give you tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that you may teach them.

24:13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of ELOHIM.

24:14 And he said to the elders, Tarry you here for us, until we come again to you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come to them.

24:15 And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount.

24:16 And the glory of YEHOVAH stayed on mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called to Moses out of the middle of the cloud.

24:17 And the sight of the glory of YEHOVAH was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

24:18 And Moses went into the middle of the cloud, and got him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.


25:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

25:2 Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that gives it willingly with his heart you shall take my offering.

25:3 And this is the offering which you shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,

25:4 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair,

25:5 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,

25:6 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense,

25:7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breastplate.

25:8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.

25:9 According to all that I show you, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall you make it.

25:10 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

25:11 And you shall overlay it with pure gold, within and without shall you overlay it, and shall make on it a crown of gold round about.

25:12 And you shall cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it.

25:13 And you shall make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.

25:14 And you shall put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.

25:15 The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it.

25:16 And you shall put into the ark the testimony which I shall give you.

25:17 And you shall make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

25:18 And you shall make two cherubim of gold, of beaten work shall you make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.

25:19 And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall you make the cherubim on the two ends thereof.

25:20 And the cherubim shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubim be.

25:21 And you shall put the mercy seat above on the ark; and in the ark you shall put the testimony that I shall give you.

25:22 And there I will meet with you, and I will commune with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.

25:23 You shall also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

25:24 And you shall overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about.

25:25 And you shall make to it a border of an hand breadth round about, and you shall make a golden crown to the border thereof round about.

25:26 And you shall make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof.

25:27 Over against the border shall the rings be for places of the staves to bear the table.

25:28 And you shall make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them.

25:29 And you shall make the dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover with: of pure gold shall you make them.

25:30 And you shall set on the table show bread before me always.

25:31 And you shall make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same.

25:32 And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side:

25:33 Three bowls made like to almonds, with a bud and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a bud and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick.

25:34 And in the candlesticks shall be four bowls made like to almonds, with their knops and their flowers.

25:35 And there shall be a bud under two branches of the same, and a bud under two branches of the same, and a bud under two branches of the same, according to the six branches that proceed out of the candlestick.

25:36 Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold.

25:37 And you shall make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it.

25:38 And the tongs thereof, and the firepans thereof, shall be of pure gold.

25:39 Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels.

25:40 And look that you make them after their pattern, which was showed you in the mount.


26:1 Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubim of cunning work shall you make them.

26:2 The length of one curtain shall be eight and twenty cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and everyone of the curtains shall have one measure.

26:3 The five curtains shall be coupled together one to another; and other five curtains shall be coupled one to another.

26:4 And you shall make loops of blue on the edge of the one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling; and likewise shall you make in the uttermost edge of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.

26:5 Fifty loops shall you make in the one curtain, and fifty loops shall you make in the edge of the curtain that is in the coupling of the second; that the loops may take hold one of another.

26:6 And you shall make fifty clasps of gold, and couple the curtains together with the clasps: and it shall be one tabernacle.

26:7 And you shall make curtains of goats' hair to be a covering on the tabernacle: eleven curtains shall you make.

28:1 And take you to you Aaron your brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister to me in the priest's office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons.

28:2 And you shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother for glory and for beauty.

28:33 And beneath on the hem of it you shall make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof; and bells of gold between them round about:

28:34 A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, on the hem of the robe round about.

28:35 And it shall be on Aaron to minister: and his sound shall be heard when he goes in to the holy place before YEHOVAH, and when he comes out, that he die not.

28:36 And you shall make a plate of pure gold, and grave on it, like the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE YEHOVAH.

28:37 And you shall put it on a blue lace, that it may be on the turban; on the forefront of the turban it shall be.

28:38 And it shall be on Aaron's forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always on his forehead, that they may be accepted before YEHOVAH.

28:41 And you shall put them on Aaron your brother, and his sons with him; and shall anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister to me in the priest's office.

28:42 And you shall make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even to the thighs they shall reach:

28:43 And they shall be on Aaron, and on his sons, when they come in to the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they come near to the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not iniquity, and die: it shall be a statute forever to him and his seed after him.


29:1 And this is the thing that you shall do to them to hallow them, to minister to me in the priest's office: Take one young bullock, and two rams without blemish,

29:2 And unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered with oil, and wafers unleavened anointed with oil: of wheaten flour shall you make them.

29:3 And you shall put them into one basket, and bring them in the basket, with the bullock and the two rams.

29:4 And Aaron and his sons you shall bring to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall wash them with water.

29:5 And you shall take the garments, and put on Aaron the coat, and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate, and gird him with the curious girdle of the ephod:

29:6 And you shall put the turban on his head, and put the holy crown on the turban.

29:7 Then shall you take the anointing oil, and pour it on his head, and anoint him.

29:8 And you shall bring his sons, and put coats on them.

29:9 And you shall gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and put the bonnets on them: and the priest's office shall be theirs for a perpetual statute: and you shall consecrate Aaron and his sons.

29:10 And you shall cause a bullock to be brought before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands on the head of the bullock.

29:11 And you shall kill the bullock before YEHOVAH, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

29:12 And you shall take of the blood of the bullock, and put it on the horns of the altar with your finger, and pour all the blood beside the bottom of the altar.

29:13 And you shall take all the fat that covers the inwards, and the lobe that is above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, and burn them on the altar.

29:14 But the flesh of the bullock, and his skin, and his dung, shall you burn with fire without the camp: it is a sin offering.

29:15 You shall also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands on the head of the ram.

29:16 And you shall slay the ram, and you shall take his blood, and sprinkle it round about on the altar.

29:17 And you shall cut the ram in pieces, and wash the inwards of him, and his legs, and put them to his pieces, and to his head.

29:18 And you shall burn the whole ram on the altar: it is a burnt offering to YEHOVAH: it is a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH.

29:19 And you shall take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands on the head of the ram.

29:20 Then shall you kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put it on the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and on the tip of the right ear of his sons, and on the thumb of their right hand, and on the great toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood on the altar round about.

29:21 And you shall take of the blood that is on the altar, and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron, and on his garments, and on his sons, and on the garments of his sons with him: and he shall be hallowed, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.

29:22 Also you shall take of the ram the fat and the rump, and the fat that covers the inwards, and the lobe above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, and the right shoulder; for it is a ram of consecration:

29:23 And one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is before YEHOVAH:

29:24 And you shall put all in the hands of Aaron, and in the hands of his sons; and shall wave them for a wave offering before YEHOVAH.

29:25 And you shall receive them of their hands, and burn them on the altar for a burnt offering, for a sweet smell before YEHOVAH: it is an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH.

29:26 And you shall take the breast of the ram of Aaron's consecration, and wave it for a wave offering before YEHOVAH: and it shall be your part.

29:27 And you shall sanctify the breast of the wave offering, and the shoulder of the heave offering, which is waved, and which is heaved up, of the ram of the consecration, even of that which is for Aaron, and of that which is for his sons:

29:28 And it shall be Aaron's and his sons' by a statute forever from the children of Israel: for it is an heave offering: and it shall be an heave offering from the children of Israel of the sacrifice of their peace offerings, even their heave offering to YEHOVAH.

29:29 And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons' after him, to be anointed therein, and to be consecrated in them.

29:30 And that son that is priest in his stead shall put them on seven days, when he comes into the tabernacle of the congregation to minister in the holy place.

29:31 And you shall take the ram of the consecration, and seethe his flesh in the holy place.

29:32 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

29:33 And they shall eat those things with which the atonement was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but a stranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.

29:34 And if ought of the flesh of the consecrations, or of the bread, remain to the morning, then you shall burn the remainder with fire: it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.

29:35 And thus shall you do to Aaron, and to his sons, according to all things which I have commanded you: seven days shall you consecrate them.

29:36 And you shall offer every day a bullock for a sin offering for atonement: and you shall cleanse the altar, when you have made an atonement for it, and you shall anoint it, to sanctify it.

29:37 Seven days you shall make an atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatever touches the altar shall be holy.

29:38 Now this is that which you shall offer on the altar; two lambs of the first year day by day continually.

29:39 The one lamb you shall offer in the morning; and the other lamb you shall offer at even:

29:40 And with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering.

29:41 And the other lamb you shall offer at even, and shall do thereto according to the meat offering of the morning, and according to the drink offering thereof, for a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH.

29:42 This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before YEHOVAH: where I will meet you, to speak there to you.

29:43 And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory.

29:44 And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me in the priest's office.

29:45 And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be ELOHEIHEM.

29:46 And they shall know that I am YEHOVAH ELOHEIHEM, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am YEHOVAH ELOHEIHEM.


30:1 And you shall make an altar to burn incense on: of shittim wood shall you make it.

30:2 A cubit shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof; foursquare shall it be: and two cubits shall be the height thereof: the horns thereof shall be of the same.

30:3 And you shall overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and you shall make to it a crown of gold round about.

30:4 And two golden rings shall you make to it under the crown of it, by the two corners thereof, on the two sides of it shall you make it; and they shall be for places for the staves to bear it with.

30:5 And you shall make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.

30:6 And you shall put it before the veil that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where I will meet with you.

30:7 And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when he dresses the lamps, he shall burn incense on it.

30:8 And when Aaron lights the lamps at even, he shall burn incense on it, a perpetual incense before YEHOVAH throughout your generations.

30:9 You shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor meat offering; neither shall you pour drink offering thereon.

30:10 And Aaron shall make an atonement on the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement on it throughout your generations: it is most holy to YEHOVAH.

30:11 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

30:12 When you take the sum of the children of Israel after their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul to YEHOVAH, when you number them; that there be no plague among them, when you number them.

30:13 This they shall give, everyone that passes among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: a shekel is twenty gerahs: an half shekel shall be the offering of YEHOVAH.

30:14 Everyone that passes among them that are numbered, from twenty years old and above, shall give an offering to YEHOVAH.

30:15 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when they give an offering to YEHOVAH, to make an atonement for your souls.

30:16 And you shall take the atonement money of the children of Israel, and shall appoint it for the service of the tabernacle of the congregation; that it may be a memorial to the children of Israel before YEHOVAH, to make an atonement for your souls.

30:17 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

30:18 You shall also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to wash with: and you shall put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and you shall put water therein.

30:19 For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat:

30:20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire to YEHOVAH:

30:21 So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute forever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.

30:22 Moreover YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

30:23 Take you also to you principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels,

30:24 And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:

30:25 And you shall make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the are of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.

30:26 And you shall anoint the tabernacle of the congregation therewith, and the ark of the testimony,

30:27 And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and his vessels, and the altar of incense,

30:28 And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and the laver and his foot.

30:29 And you shall sanctify them, that they may be most holy: whatever touches them shall be holy.

30:30 And you shall anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that they may minister to me in the priest's office.

30:31 And you shall speak to the children of Israel, saying, This shall be an holy anointing oil to me throughout your generations.

30:32 On man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall you make any other like it, after the composition of it: it is holy, and it shall be holy to you.

30:33 Whoever compounds any like it, or whoever puts any of it on a stranger, shall even be cut off from his people.

30:34 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Take to you sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:

30:35 And you shall make it a perfume, a confection after the are of the apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy:

30:36 And you shall beat some of it very small, and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will meet with you: it shall be to you most holy.

30:37 And as for the perfume which you shall make, you shall not make to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be to you holy for YEHOVAH.

30:38 Whoever shall make like to that, to smell thereto, shall even be cut off from his people.


31:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

31:2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:

31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit of ELOHIM, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

31:4 To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

31:5 And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.

31:6 And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded you;

31:7 The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle,

31:8 And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense,

31:9 And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver and his foot,

31:10 And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office,

31:11 And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded you shall they do.

31:12 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

31:13 Speak you also to the children of Israel, saying, Truly my sabbaths you shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that you may know that I am YEHOVAH that does sanctify you.

31:14 You shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy to you: everyone that defiles it shall surely be put to death: for whoever does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

31:15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to YEHOVAH: whoever does any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

31:16 Why the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

31:17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel forever: for in six days YEHOVAH made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

31:18 And he gave to Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him on mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of ELOHIM.


32:1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron, and said to him, Up, make us elohims, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him.

32:2 And Aaron said to them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them to me.

32:3 And all the people broke off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron.

32:4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a engraving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be eloheichas, O Israel, which brought you up out of the land of Egypt.

32:5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, Tomorrow is a feast to YEHOVAH.

32:6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.

32:7 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Go, get you down; for your people, which you brought out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

32:8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be eloheichas, O Israel, which have brought you up out of the land of Egypt.

32:9 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiff necked people:

32:10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of you a great nation.

32:11 And Moses sought YEHOVAH his ELOHIM, and said, YEHOVAH, why does your wrath wax hot against your people, which you have brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

32:12 Why should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from your fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against your people.

32:13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, to whom you swore by your own self, and said to them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give to your seed, and they shall inherit it forever.

32:14 And YEHOVAH repented of the evil which he thought to do to his people.

32:15 And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.

32:16 And the tables were the work of ELOHIM, and the writing was the writing of ELOHIM, graven on the tables.

32:17 And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.

32:18 And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.

32:19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came near to the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and broke them beneath the mount.

32:20 And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strewed it on the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.

32:21 And Moses said to Aaron, What did this people to you, that you have brought so great a sin on them?

32:22 And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: you know the people, that they are set on mischief.

32:23 For they said to me, Make us elohims, which shall go before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him.

32:24 And I said to them, Whoever has any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.

32:25 And when Moses saw that the people were naked; for Aaron had made them naked to their shame among their enemies:

32:26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on YEHOVAH’S side? let him come to me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together to him.

32:27 And he said to them, Thus said YEHOVAH ELOHEY of ISRAEL, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.

32:28 And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.

32:29 For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves today to YEHOVAH, even every man on his son, and on his brother; that he may bestow on you a blessing this day.

32:30 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said to the people, You have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up to YEHOVAH; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.

32:31 And Moses returned to YEHOVAH, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them elohims of gold.

32:32 Yet now, if you will forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray you, out of your book which you have written.

32:33 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Whoever has sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

32:34 Therefore now go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you: behold, my Angel shall go before you: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin on them.

32:35 And YEHOVAH plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.


33:1 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Depart, and go up hence, you and the people which you have brought up out of the land of Egypt, to the land which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, To your seed will I give it:

33:2 And I will send an angel before you; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite:

33:3 To a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the middle of you; for you are a stiff necked people: lest I consume you in the way.

33:4 And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned: and no man did put on him his ornaments.

33:5 For YEHOVAH had said to Moses, Say to the children of Israel, You are a stiff necked people: I will come up into the middle of you in a moment, and consume you: therefore now put off your ornaments from you, that I may know what to do to you.

33:6 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb.

33:7 And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, that everyone which sought YEHOVAH went out to the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp.

33:8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out to the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle.

33:9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and talked with Moses.

33:10 And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his tent door.

33:11 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.

33:12 And Moses said to YEHOVAH, See, you say to me, Bring up this people: and you have not let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, I know you by name, and you have also found grace in my sight.

33:13 Now therefore, I pray you, if I have found grace in your sight, show me now your way, that I may know you, that I may find grace in your sight: and consider that this nation is your people.

33:14 And he said, My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.

33:15 And he said to him, If your presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.

33:16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and your people have found grace in your sight? is it not in that you go with us? so shall we be separated, I and your people, from all the people that are on the face of the earth.

33:17 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, I will do this thing also that you have spoken: for you have found grace in my sight, and I know you by name.

33:18 And he said, I beseech you, show me your glory.

33:19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of YEHOVAH before you; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.

33:20 And he said, You can not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

33:21 And YEHOVAH said, Behold, there is a place by me, and you shall stand on a rock:

33:22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passes by, that I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and will cover you with my hand while I pass by:

33:23 And I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.


34:1 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Hew you two tables of stone like to the first: and I will write on these tables the words that were in the first tables, which you brake.

34:2 And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning to mount Sinai, and present yourself there to me in the top of the mount.

34:3 And no man shall come up with you, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount.

34:4 And he hewed two tables of stone like to the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up to mount Sinai, as YEHOVAH had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone.

34:5 And YEHOVAH descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of YEHOVAH.

34:6 And YEHOVAH passed by before him, and proclaimed, YEHOVAH, YEHOVAH ELOHIM, merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

34:7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, and on the children's children, to the third and to the fourth generation.

34:8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

34:9 And he said, If now I have found grace in your sight, YEHOVAH, let Adoni, I pray you, go among us; for it is a stiff necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for your inheritance.

34:10 And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which you are shall see the work of YEHOVAH: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with you.

34:11 Observe you that which I command you this day: behold, I drive out before you the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.

34:12 Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you go, lest it be for a snare in the middle of you:

34:13 But you shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves:

34:14 For you shall worship no other elohim: for YEHOVAH, whose name is QUANNA, is a jealous ELOHIM:

34:15 Lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their elohims, and do sacrifice to their elohims, and one call you, and you eat of his sacrifice;

34:16 And you take of their daughters to your sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their elohims, and make your sons go a whoring after their elohims.

34:17 You shall make you no molten elohims.

34:18 The feast of unleavened bread shall you keep. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, in the time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib you came out from Egypt.

34:19 All that opens the matrix is mine; and every firstling among your cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male.

34:20 But the firstling of an ass you shall redeem with a lamb: and if you redeem him not, then shall you break his neck. All the firstborn of your sons you shall redeem. And none shall appear before me empty.

34:21 Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest: in ripening time and in harvest you shall rest.

34:22 And you shall observe the feast of weeks, of the first fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end.

34:23 Thrice in the year shall all your male children appear before HaADON ELOHIM, the ELOHEY of ISRAEL.

34:24 For I will cast out the nations before you, and enlarge your borders: neither shall any man desire your land, when you shall go up to appear before YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM thrice in the year.

34:25 You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left to the morning.

34:26 The first of the first fruits of your land you shall bring to the house of YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM. You shall not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.

34:27 And YEHOVAH said to Moses, Write you these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.

34:28 And he was there with YEHOVAH forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote on the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

34:29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses knew not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.

34:30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come near him.

34:31 And Moses called to them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned to him: and Moses talked with them.

34:32 And afterward all the children of Israel came near: and he gave them in commandment all that YEHOVAH had spoken with him in mount Sinai.

34:33 And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a veil on his face.

34:34 But when Moses went in before YEHOVAH to speak with him, he took the veil off, until he came out. And he came out, and spoke to the children of Israel that which he was commanded.

34:35 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the veil on his face again, until he went in to speak with him.


35:1 And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said to them, These are the words which YEHOVAH has commanded, that you should do them.

35:2 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to YEHOVAH: whoever does work therein shall be put to death.

35:3 You shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations on the sabbath day.

35:4 And Moses spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which YEHOVAH commanded, saying,

35:5 Take you from among you an offering to YEHOVAH: whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of YEHOVAH; gold, and silver, and brass,

35:6 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair,

35:7 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,

35:8 And oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the sweet incense,

35:9 And onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for the breastplate.

35:10 And every wise hearted among you shall come, and make all that YEHOVAH has commanded;

35:11 The tabernacle, his tent, and his covering, his clasps, and his boards, his bars, his pillars, and his sockets,

35:12 The ark, and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat, and the veil of the covering,

35:13 The table, and his staves, and all his vessels, and the show bread,

35:14 The candlestick also for the light, and his furniture, and his lamps, with the oil for the light,

35:15 And the incense altar, and his staves, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the door at the entering in of the tabernacle,

35:16 The altar of burnt offering, with his brazen grate, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,

35:17 The hangings of the court, his pillars, and their sockets, and the hanging for the door of the court,

35:18 The pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords,

35:19 The cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office.

35:20 And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.

35:21 And they came, everyone whose heart stirred him up, and everyone whom his spirit made willing, and they brought YEHOVAH’S offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy garments.

35:22 And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered offered an offering of gold to YEHOVAH.

35:23 And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and red skins of rams, and badgers' skins, brought them.

35:24 Everyone that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought YEHOVAH’S offering: and every man, with whom was found shittim wood for any work of the service, brought it.

35:25 And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.

35:26 And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun goats' hair.

35:27 And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;

35:28 And spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.

35:29 The children of Israel brought a willing offering to YEHOVAH, every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all manner of work, which YEHOVAH had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.

35:30 And Moses said to the children of Israel, See, YEHOVAH has called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;

35:31 And he has filled him with the spirit of ELOHIM, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;

35:32 And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

35:33 And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work.

35:34 And he has put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.

35:35 Them has he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.


36:1 Then worked Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom YEHOVAH put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that YEHOVAH had commanded.

36:2 And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whose heart YEHOVAH had put wisdom, even everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to the work to do it:

36:3 And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it with. And they brought yet to him free offerings every morning.

36:4 And all the wise men, that worked all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;

36:5 And they spoke to Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which YEHOVAH commanded to make.

36:6 And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing.

36:7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.

36:8 And every wise hearted man among them that worked the work of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubim of cunning work made he them.

36:9 The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were all of one size.

36:10 And he coupled the five curtains one to another: and the other five curtains he coupled one to another.

36:11 And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost side of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.

36:12 Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the loops held one curtain to another.

36:13 And he made fifty clasps of gold, and coupled the curtains one to another with the clasps: so it became one tabernacle.

36:14 And he made curtains of goats' hair for the tent over the tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.

36:15 The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits was the breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains were of one size.

36:16 And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves.

36:17 And he made fifty loops on the uttermost edge of the curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he on the edge of the curtain which couples the second.

36:18 And he made fifty clasps of brass to couple the tent together, that it might be one.

36:19 And he made a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering of badgers' skins above that.

36:20 And he made boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood, standing up.

36:21 The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a board one cubit and a half.

36:22 One board had two tenons, equally distant one from another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.

36:23 And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward:

36:24 And forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.

36:25 And for the other side of the tabernacle, which is toward the north corner, he made twenty boards,

36:26 And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.

36:27 And for the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six boards.

36:28 And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides.

36:29 And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the head thereof, to one ring: thus he did to both of them in both the corners.

36:30 And there were eight boards; and their sockets were sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.

36:31 And he made bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,

36:32 And five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the sides westward.

36:33 And he made the middle bar to shoot through the boards from the one end to the other.

36:34 And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings of gold to be places for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.

36:35 And he made a veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: with cherubim made he it of cunning work.

36:36 And he made thereunto four pillars of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of silver.

36:37 And he made an hanging for the tabernacle door of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, of needlework;

36:38 And the five pillars of it with their hooks: and he overlaid their capitals and their fillets with gold: but their five sockets were of brass.


37:1 And Bezaleel made the ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it:

37:2 And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and made a crown of gold to it round about.

37:3 And he cast for it four rings of gold, to be set by the four corners of it; even two rings on the one side of it, and two rings on the other side of it.

37:4 And he made staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold.

37:5 And he put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.

37:6 And he made the mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half was the length thereof, and one cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

37:7 And he made two cherubim of gold, beaten out of one piece made he them, on the two ends of the mercy seat;

37:8 One cherub on the end on this side, and another cherub on the other end on that side: out of the mercy seat made he the cherubim on the two ends thereof.

37:9 And the cherubim spread out their wings on high, and covered with their wings over the mercy seat, with their faces one to another; even to the mercy seat were the faces of the cherubim.

37:10 And he made the table of shittim wood: two cubits was the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof:

37:11 And he overlaid it with pure gold, and made thereunto a crown of gold round about.

37:12 Also he made thereunto a border of an handbreadth round about; and made a crown of gold for the border thereof round about.

37:13 And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put the rings on the four corners that were in the four feet thereof.

37:14 Over against the border were the rings, the places for the staves to bear the table.

37:15 And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold, to bear the table.

37:16 And he made the vessels which were on the table, his dishes, and his spoons, and his bowls, and his covers to cover with, of pure gold.

37:17 And he made the candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work made he the candlestick; his shaft, and his branch, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, were of the same:

37:18 And six branches going out of the sides thereof; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side thereof, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side thereof:

37:19 Three bowls made after the fashion of almonds in one branch, a bud and a flower; and three bowls made like almonds in another branch, a bud and a flower: so throughout the six branches going out of the candlestick.

37:20 And in the candlestick were four bowls made like almonds, his knops, and his flowers:

37:21 And a bud under two branches of the same, and a bud under two branches of the same, and a bud under two branches of the same, according to the six branches going out of it.

37:22 Their knops and their branches were of the same: all of it was one beaten work of pure gold.

37:23 And he made his seven lamps, and his snuffers, and his firepans, of pure gold.

37:24 Of a talent of pure gold made he it, and all the vessels thereof.

37:25 And he made the incense altar of shittim wood: the length of it was a cubit, and the breadth of it a cubit; it was foursquare; and two cubits was the height of it; the horns thereof were of the same.

37:26 And he overlaid it with pure gold, both the top of it, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns of it: also he made to it a crown of gold round about.

37:27 And he made two rings of gold for it under the crown thereof, by the two corners of it, on the two sides thereof, to be places for the staves to bear it with.

37:28 And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold.

37:29 And he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense of sweet spices, according to the work of the apothecary.


38:1 And he made the altar of burnt offering of shittim wood: five cubits was the length thereof, and five cubits the breadth thereof; it was foursquare; and three cubits the height thereof.

38:2 And he made the horns thereof on the four corners of it; the horns thereof were of the same: and he overlaid it with brass.

38:3 And he made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the shovels, and the basins, and the meat hooks, and the fire pans: all the vessels thereof made he of brass.

38:4 And he made for the altar a brazen grate of network under the compass thereof beneath to the middle of it.

38:5 And he cast four rings for the four ends of the grate of brass, to be places for the staves.

38:6 And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with brass.

38:7 And he put the staves into the rings on the sides of the altar, to bear it with; he made the altar hollow with boards.

38:8 And he made the laver of brass, and the foot of it of brass, of the mirrors of the women assembling, which assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

38:9 And he made the court: on the south side southward the hangings of the court were of fine twined linen, an hundred cubits:

38:10 Their pillars were twenty, and their brazen sockets twenty; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of silver.

38:11 And for the north side the hangings were an hundred cubits, their pillars were twenty, and their sockets of brass twenty; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

38:12 And for the west side were hangings of fifty cubits, their pillars ten, and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

38:13 And for the east side eastward fifty cubits.

38:14 The hangings of the one side of the gate were fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.

38:15 And for the other side of the court gate, on this hand and that hand, were hangings of fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.

38:16 All the hangings of the court round about were of fine twined linen.

38:17 And the sockets for the pillars were of brass; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver; and the overlaying of their capitals of silver; and all the pillars of the court were filleted with silver.

38:18 And the hanging for the gate of the court was needlework, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: and twenty cubits was the length, and the height in the breadth was five cubits, answerable to the hangings of the court.

38:19 And their pillars were four, and their sockets of brass four; their hooks of silver, and the overlaying of their capitals and their fillets of silver.

38:20 And all the pins of the tabernacle, and of the court round about, were of brass.

38:21 This is the sum of the tabernacle, even of the tabernacle of testimony, as it was counted, according to the commandment of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar, son to Aaron the priest.

38:22 And Bezaleel the son Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

38:23 And with him was Aholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver, and a cunning workman, and an embroiderer in blue, and in purple, and in scarlet, and fine linen.

38:24 All the gold that was occupied for the work in all the work of the holy place, even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

38:25 And the silver of them that were numbered of the congregation was an hundred talents, and a thousand seven hundred and three score and fifteen shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:

38:26 A bekah forevery man, that is, half a shekel, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for everyone that went to be numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men.

38:27 And of the hundred talents of silver were cast the sockets of the sanctuary, and the sockets of the veil; an hundred sockets of the hundred talents, a talent for a socket.

38:28 And of the thousand seven hundred seventy and five shekels he made hooks for the pillars, and overlaid their capitals, and filleted them.

38:29 And the brass of the offering was seventy talents, and two thousand and four hundred shekels.

38:30 And therewith he made the sockets to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the brazen altar, and the brazen grate for it, and all the vessels of the altar,

38:31 And the sockets of the court round about, and the sockets of the court gate, and all the pins of the tabernacle, and all the pins of the court round about.


39:1 And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments for Aaron; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

39:2 And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

39:3 And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with cunning work.

39:4 They made shoulder pieces for it, to couple it together: by the two edges was it coupled together.

39:5 And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was on it, was of the same, according to the work thereof; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

39:6 And they worked onyx stones enclosed in ouches of gold, graven, as signets are graven, with the names of the children of Israel.

39:7 And he put them on the shoulders of the ephod, that they should be stones for a memorial to the children of Israel; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

39:8 And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

39:9 It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled.

39:10 And they set in it four rows of stones: the first row was a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this was the first row.

39:11 And the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.

39:12 And the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

39:13 And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper: they were enclosed in ouches of gold in their settings.

39:14 And the stones were according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, everyone with his name, according to the twelve tribes.

39:15 And they made on the breastplate chains at the ends, of wreathen work of pure gold.

39:16 And they made two ouches of gold, and two gold rings; and put the two rings in the two ends of the breastplate.

39:17 And they put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings on the ends of the breastplate.

39:18 And the two ends of the two wreathen chains they fastened in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulder pieces of the ephod, before it.

39:19 And they made two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends of the breastplate, on the border of it, which was on the side of the ephod inward.

39:20 And they made two other golden rings, and put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart of it, over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the ephod.

39:21 And they did bind the breastplate by his rings to the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

39:22 And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.

39:23 And there was an hole in the middle of the robe, as the hole of an habergeon, with a band round about the hole, that it should not rend.

39:24 And they made on the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.

39:25 And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates on the hem of the robe, round about between the pomegranates;

39:26 A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister in; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

39:27 And they made coats of fine linen of woven work for Aaron, and for his sons,

39:28 And a turban of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine linen, and linen breeches of fine twined linen,

39:29 And a girdle of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, of needlework; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

39:30 And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote on it a writing, like to the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE YEHOVAH.

39:31 And they tied to it a lace of blue, to fasten it on high on the turban; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

39:32 Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation finished: and the children of Israel did according to all that YEHOVAH commanded Moses, so did they.

39:33 And they brought the tabernacle to Moses, the tent, and all his furniture, his clasps, his boards, his bars, and his pillars, and his sockets,

39:34 And the covering of rams' skins dyed red, and the covering of badgers' skins, and the veil of the covering,

39:35 The ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the mercy seat,

39:36 The table, and all the vessels thereof, and the show bread,

39:37 The pure candlestick, with the lamps thereof, even with the lamps to be set in order, and all the vessels thereof, and the oil for light,

39:38 And the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the tabernacle door,

39:39 The brazen altar, and his grate of brass, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,

39:40 The hangings of the court, his pillars, and his sockets, and the hanging for the court gate, his cords, and his pins, and all the vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of the congregation,

39:41 The cloths of service to do service in the holy place, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons' garments, to minister in the priest's office.

39:42 According to all that YEHOVAH commanded Moses, so the children of Israel made all the work.

39:43 And Moses did look on all the work, and, behold, they had done it as YEHOVAH had commanded, even so had they done it: and Moses blessed them.


40:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

40:2 On the first day of the first month shall you set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

40:3 And you shall put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the veil.

40:4 And you shall bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set in order on it; and you shall bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.

40:5 And you shall set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.

40:6 And you shall set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

40:7 And you shall set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and shall put water therein.

40:8 And you shall set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.

40:9 And you shall take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shall hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.

40:10 And you shall anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.

40:11 And you shall anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.

40:12 And you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.

40:13 And you shall put on Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister to me in the priest's office.

40:14 And you shall bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:

40:15 And you shall anoint them, as you did anoint their father, that they may minister to me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.

40:16 Thus did Moses: according to all that YEHOVAH commanded him, so did he.

40:17 And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.

40:18 And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared up his pillars.

40:19 And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above on it; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

40:20 And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above on the ark:

40:21 And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the veil of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

40:22 And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, on the side of the tabernacle northward, without the veil.

40:23 And he set the bread in order on it before YEHOVAH; as YEHOVAH had commanded Moses.

40:24 And he put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.

40:25 And he lighted the lamps before YEHOVAH; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

40:26 And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the veil:

40:27 And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

40:28 And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.

40:29 And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered on it the burnt offering and the meat offering; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

40:30 And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash with.

40:31 And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat:

40:32 When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near to the altar, they washed; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

40:33 And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.

40:34 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of YEHOVAH filled the tabernacle.

40:35 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud stayed thereon, and the glory of YEHOVAH filled the tabernacle.

40:36 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:

40:37 But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.

40:38 For the cloud of YEHOVAH was on the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.

Leviticus

1:1 And YEHOVAH called to Moses, and spoke to him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

1:2 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, If any man of you bring an offering to YEHOVAH, you shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock.

1:3 If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before YEHOVAH.

1:4 And he shall put his hand on the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.

1:5 And he shall kill the bullock before YEHOVAH: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about on the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

1:6 And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces.

1:7 And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire on the altar, and lay the wood in order on the fire:

1:8 And the priests, Aaron's sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat, in order on the wood that is on the fire which is on the altar:

1:9 But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet smell to YEHOVAH.

1:10 And if his offering be of the flocks, namely, of the sheep, or of the goats, for a burnt sacrifice; he shall bring it a male without blemish.

1:11 And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before YEHOVAH: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall sprinkle his blood round about on the altar.

1:12 And he shall cut it into his pieces, with his head and his fat: and the priest shall lay them in order on the wood that is on the fire which is on the altar:

1:13 But he shall wash the inwards and the legs with water: and the priest shall bring it all, and burn it on the altar: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet smell to YEHOVAH.

1:14 And if the burnt sacrifice for his offering to YEHOVAH be of fowls, then he shall bring his offering of turtledoves, or of young pigeons.

1:15 And the priest shall bring it to the altar, and wring off his head, and burn it on the altar; and the blood thereof shall be wrung out at the side of the altar:

1:16 And he shall pluck away his crop with his feathers, and cast it beside the altar on the east part, by the place of the ashes:

1:17 And he shall split it with the wings thereof, but shall not divide it asunder: and the priest shall burn it on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet smell to YEHOVAH.


2:1 And when any will offer a meat offering to YEHOVAH, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil on it, and put frankincense thereon:

2:2 And he shall bring it to Aaron's sons the priests: and he shall take out of there his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn the memorial of it on the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a sweet smell to YEHOVAH:

2:3 And the remnant of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of YEHOVAH made by fire.

2:4 And if you bring an oblation of a meat offering baked in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or unleavened wafers anointed with oil.

2:5 And if your oblation be a meat offering baked in a pan, it shall be of fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil.

2:6 You shall part it in pieces, and pour oil thereon: it is a meat offering.

2:7 And if your oblation be a meat offering baked in the frying pan, it shall be made of fine flour with oil.

2:8 And you shall bring the meat offering that is made of these things to YEHOVAH: and when it is presented to the priest, he shall bring it to the altar.

2:9 And the priest shall take from the meat offering a memorial thereof, and shall burn it on the altar: it is an offering made by fire, of a sweet smell to YEHOVAH.

2:10 And that which is left of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of YEHOVAH made by fire.

2:11 No meat offering, which you shall bring to YEHOVAH, shall be made with leaven: for you shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, in any offering of YEHOVAH made by fire.

2:12 As for the oblation of the first fruits, you shall offer them to YEHOVAH: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet smell.

2:13 And every oblation of your meat offering shall you season with salt; neither shall you suffer the salt of the covenant of ELOHEICHA to be lacking from your meat offering: with all your offerings you shall offer salt.

2:14 And if you offer a meat offering of your first fruits to YEHOVAH, you shall offer for the meat offering of your first fruits green ears of corn dried by the fire, even corn beaten out of full ears.

2:15 And you shall put oil on it, and lay frankincense thereon: it is a meat offering.

2:16 And the priest shall burn the memorial of it, part of the beaten corn thereof, and part of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof: it is an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH.


3:1 And if his oblation be a sacrifice of peace offering, if he offer it of the herd; whether it be a male or female, he shall offer it without blemish before YEHOVAH.

3:2 And he shall lay his hand on the head of his offering, and kill it at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron's sons the priests shall sprinkle the blood on the altar round about.

3:3 And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH; the fat that covers the inwards, and all the fat that is on the inwards,

3:4 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the lobe above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away.

3:5 And Aaron's sons shall burn it on the altar on the burnt sacrifice, which is on the wood that is on the fire: it is an offering made by fire, of a sweet smell to YEHOVAH.

3:6 And if his offering for a sacrifice of peace offering to YEHOVAH be of the flock; male or female, he shall offer it without blemish.

3:7 If he offer a lamb for his offering, then shall he offer it before YEHOVAH.

3:8 And he shall lay his hand on the head of his offering, and kill it before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron's sons shall sprinkle the blood thereof round about on the altar.

3:9 And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH; the fat thereof, and the whole rump, it shall he take off hard by the backbone; and the fat that covers the inwards, and all the fat that is on the inwards,

3:10 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the lobe above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away.

3:11 And the priest shall burn it on the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire to YEHOVAH.

3:12 And if his offering be a goat, then he shall offer it before YEHOVAH.

3:13 And he shall lay his hand on the head of it, and kill it before the tabernacle of the congregation: and the sons of Aaron shall sprinkle the blood thereof on the altar round about.

3:14 And he shall offer thereof his offering, even an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH; the fat that covers the inwards, and all the fat that is on the inwards,

3:15 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the lobe above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away.

3:16 And the priest shall burn them on the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire for a sweet smell: all the fat is YEHOVAH’S.

3:17 It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that you eat neither fat nor blood.


4:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

4:2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, If a soul shall sin through ignorance against any of the commandments of YEHOVAH concerning things which ought not to be done, and shall do against any of them:

4:3 If the priest that is anointed do sin according to the sin of the people; then let him bring for his sin, which he has sinned, a young bullock without blemish to YEHOVAH for a sin offering.

4:4 And he shall bring the bullock to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before YEHOVAH; and shall lay his hand on the bullock's head, and kill the bullock before YEHOVAH.

4:5 And the priest that is anointed shall take of the bullock's blood, and bring it to the tabernacle of the congregation:

4:6 And the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle of the blood seven times before YEHOVAH, before the veil of the sanctuary.

4:7 And the priest shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar of sweet incense before YEHOVAH, which is in the tabernacle of the congregation; and shall pour all the blood of the bullock at the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

4:8 And he shall take off from it all the fat of the bullock for the sin offering; the fat that covers the inwards, and all the fat that is on the inwards,

4:9 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the lobe above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away,

4:10 As it was taken off from the bullock of the sacrifice of peace offerings: and the priest shall burn them on the altar of the burnt offering.

4:11 And the skin of the bullock, and all his flesh, with his head, and with his legs, and his inwards, and his dung,

4:12 Even the whole bullock shall he carry forth without the camp to a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn him on the wood with fire: where the ashes are poured out shall he be burnt.

4:13 And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done somewhat against any of the commandments of YEHOVAH concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty;

4:14 When the sin, which they have sinned against it, is known, then the congregation shall offer a young bullock for the sin, and bring him before the tabernacle of the congregation.

4:15 And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands on the head of the bullock before YEHOVAH: and the bullock shall be killed before YEHOVAH.

4:16 And the priest that is anointed shall bring of the bullock's blood to the tabernacle of the congregation:

4:17 And the priest shall dip his finger in some of the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before YEHOVAH, even before the veil.

4:18 And he shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar which is before YEHOVAH, that is in the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall pour out all the blood at the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

4:19 And he shall take all his fat from him, and burn it on the altar.

4:20 And he shall do with the bullock as he did with the bullock for a sin offering, so shall he do with this: and the priest shall make an atonement for them, and it shall be forgiven them.

4:21 And he shall carry forth the bullock without the camp, and burn him as he burned the first bullock: it is a sin offering for the congregation.

4:22 When a ruler has sinned, and done somewhat through ignorance against any of the commandments of YEHOVAH ELOHAV concerning things which should not be done, and is guilty;

4:23 Or if his sin, wherein he has sinned, come to his knowledge; he shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a male without blemish:

4:24 And he shall lay his hand on the head of the goat, and kill it in the place where they kill the burnt offering before YEHOVAH: it is a sin offering.

4:25 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his finger, and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour out his blood at the bottom of the altar of burnt offering.

4:26 And he shall burn all his fat on the altar, as the fat of the sacrifice of peace offerings: and the priest shall make an atonement for him as concerning his sin, and it shall be forgiven him.

4:27 And if any one of the common people sin through ignorance, while he does somewhat against any of the commandments of YEHOVAH concerning things which ought not to be done, and be guilty;

4:28 Or if his sin, which he has sinned, come to his knowledge: then he shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a female without blemish, for his sin which he has sinned.

4:29 And he shall lay his hand on the head of the sin offering, and slay the sin offering in the place of the burnt offering.

4:30 And the priest shall take of the blood thereof with his finger, and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the altar.

4:31 And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat is taken away from off the sacrifice of peace offerings; and the priest shall burn it on the altar for a sweet smell to YEHOVAH; and the priest shall make an atonement for him, and it shall be forgiven him.

4:32 And if he bring a lamb for a sin offering, he shall bring it a female without blemish.

4:33 And he shall lay his hand on the head of the sin offering, and slay it for a sin offering in the place where they kill the burnt offering.

4:34 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his finger, and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the altar:

4:35 And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat of the lamb is taken away from the sacrifice of the peace offerings; and the priest shall burn them on the altar, according to the offerings made by fire to YEHOVAH: and the priest shall make an atonement for his sin that he has committed, and it shall be forgiven him.


5:1 And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he has seen or known of it; if he do not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity.

5:2 Or if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether it be a carcass of an unclean beast, or a carcass of unclean cattle, or the carcass of unclean creeping things, and if it be hidden from him; he also shall be unclean, and guilty.

5:3 Or if he touch the uncleanness of man, whatever uncleanness it be that a man shall be defiled with, and it be hid from him; when he knows of it, then he shall be guilty.

5:4 Or if a soul swear, pronouncing with his lips to do evil, or to do good, whatever it be that a man shall pronounce with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he knows of it, then he shall be guilty in one of these.

5:5 And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these things, that he shall confess that he has sinned in that thing:

5:6 And he shall bring his trespass offering to YEHOVAH for his sin which he has sinned, a female from the flock, a lamb or a kid of the goats, for a sin offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his sin.

5:7 And if he be not able to bring a lamb, then he shall bring for his trespass, which he has committed, two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, to YEHOVAH; one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering.

5:8 And he shall bring them to the priest, who shall offer that which is for the sin offering first, and wring off his head from his neck, but shall not divide it asunder:

5:9 And he shall sprinkle of the blood of the sin offering on the side of the altar; and the rest of the blood shall be wrung out at the bottom of the altar: it is a sin offering.

5:10 And he shall offer the second for a burnt offering, according to the manner: and the priest shall make an atonement for him for his sin which he has sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.

5:11 But if he be not able to bring two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a sin offering; he shall put no oil on it, neither shall he put any frankincense thereon: for it is a sin offering.

5:12 Then shall he bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take his handful of it, even a memorial thereof, and burn it on the altar, according to the offerings made by fire to YEHOVAH: it is a sin offering.

5:13 And the priest shall make an atonement for him as touching his sin that he has sinned in one of these, and it shall be forgiven him: and the remnant shall be the priest's, as a meat offering.

5:14 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

5:15 If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, in the holy things of YEHOVAH; then he shall bring for his trespass to YEHOVAH a ram without blemish out of the flocks, with your estimation by shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering.

5:16 And he shall make amends for the harm that he has done in the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it to the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.

5:17 And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of YEHOVAH; though he knew it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.

5:18 And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock, with your estimation, for a trespass offering, to the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his ignorance wherein he erred and knew it not, and it shall be forgiven him.

5:19 It is a trespass offering: he has certainly trespassed against YEHOVAH.


6:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

6:2 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against YEHOVAH, and lie to his neighbor in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or has deceived his neighbor;

6:3 Or have found that which was lost, and lies concerning it, and swears falsely; in any of all these that a man does, sinning therein:

6:4 Then it shall be, because he has sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he has deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found,

6:5 Or all that about which he has sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it to him to whom it appertains, in the day of his trespass offering.

6:6 And he shall bring his trespass offering to YEHOVAH, a ram without blemish out of the flock, with your estimation, for a trespass offering, to the priest:

6:7 And the priest shall make an atonement for him before YEHOVAH: and it shall be forgiven him for any thing of all that he has done in trespassing therein.

6:8 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

6:9 Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt offering: It is the burnt offering, because of the burning on the altar all night to the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be burning in it.

6:10 And the priest shall put on his linen garment, and his linen breeches shall he put on his flesh, and take up the ashes which the fire has consumed with the burnt offering on the altar, and he shall put them beside the altar.

6:11 And he shall put off his garments, and put on other garments, and carry forth the ashes without the camp to a clean place.

6:12 And the fire on the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order on it; and he shall burn thereon the fat of the peace offerings.

6:13 The fire shall ever be burning on the altar; it shall never go out.

6:14 And this is the law of the meat offering: the sons of Aaron shall offer it before YEHOVAH, before the altar.

6:15 And he shall take of it his handful, of the flour of the meat offering, and of the oil thereof, and all the frankincense which is on the meat offering, and shall burn it on the altar for a sweet smell, even the memorial of it, to YEHOVAH.

6:16 And the remainder thereof shall Aaron and his sons eat: with unleavened bread shall it be eaten in the holy place; in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation they shall eat it.

6:17 It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it to them for their portion of my offerings made by fire; it is most holy, as is the sin offering, and as the trespass offering.

6:18 All the males among the children of Aaron shall eat of it. It shall be a statute forever in your generations concerning the offerings of YEHOVAH made by fire: everyone that touches them shall be holy.

6:19 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

6:20 This is the offering of Aaron and of his sons, which they shall offer to YEHOVAH in the day when he is anointed; the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a meat offering perpetual, half of it in the morning, and half thereof at night.

6:21 In a pan it shall be made with oil; and when it is baked, you shall bring it in: and the baked pieces of the meat offering shall you offer for a sweet smell to YEHOVAH.

6:22 And the priest of his sons that is anointed in his stead shall offer it: it is a statute forever to YEHOVAH; it shall be wholly burnt.

6:23 Forevery meat offering for the priest shall be wholly burnt: it shall not be eaten.

6:24 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

6:25 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin offering: In the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the sin offering be killed before YEHOVAH: it is most holy.

6:26 The priest that offers it for sin shall eat it: in the holy place shall it be eaten, in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation.

6:27 Whatever shall touch the flesh thereof shall be holy: and when there is sprinkled of the blood thereof on any garment, you shall wash that where on it was sprinkled in the holy place.

6:28 But the earthen vessel wherein it is sodden shall be broken: and if it be sodden in a brazen pot, it shall be both scoured, and rinsed in water.

6:29 All the males among the priests shall eat thereof: it is most holy.

6:30 And no sin offering, whereof any of the blood is brought into the tabernacle of the congregation to reconcile with in the holy place, shall be eaten: it shall be burnt in the fire.


7:1 Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering: it is most holy.

7:2 In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle round about on the altar.

7:3 And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and the fat that covers the inwards,

7:4 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the lobe that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away:

7:5 And the priest shall burn them on the altar for an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH: it is a trespass offering.

7:6 Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in the holy place: it is most holy.

7:7 As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is one law for them: the priest that makes atonement therewith shall have it.

7:8 And the priest that offers any man's burnt offering, even the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he has offered.

7:9 And all the meat offering that is baked in the oven, and all that is dressed in the frying pan, and in the pan, shall be the priest's that offers it.

7:10 And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall all the sons of Aaron have, one as much as another.

7:11 And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he shall offer to YEHOVAH.

7:12 If he offer it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried.

7:13 Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings.

7:14 And of it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for an heave offering to YEHOVAH, and it shall be the priest's that sprinkles the blood of the peace offerings.

7:15 And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day that it is offered; he shall not leave any of it until the morning.

7:16 But if the sacrifice of his offering be a vow, or a voluntary offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offers his sacrifice: and on the morrow also the remainder of it shall be eaten:

7:17 But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt with fire.

7:18 And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed to him that offers it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eats of it shall bear his iniquity.

7:19 And the flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten; it shall be burnt with fire: and as for the flesh, all that be clean shall eat thereof.

7:20 But the soul that eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, that pertain to YEHOVAH, having his uncleanness on him, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.

7:21 Moreover the soul that shall touch any unclean thing, as the uncleanness of man, or any unclean beast, or any abominable unclean thing, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which pertain to YEHOVAH, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.

7:22 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

7:23 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, You shall eat no manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat.

7:24 And the fat of the beast that dies of itself, and the fat of that which is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use: but you shall in no wise eat of it.

7:25 For whoever eats the fat of the beast, of which men offer an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH, even the soul that eats it shall be cut off from his people.

7:26 Moreover you shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings.

7:27 Whatever soul it be that eats any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.

7:28 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

7:29 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, He that offers the sacrifice of his peace offerings to YEHOVAH shall bring his oblation to YEHOVAH of the sacrifice of his peace offerings.

7:30 His own hands shall bring the offerings of YEHOVAH made by fire, the fat with the breast, it shall he bring, that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before YEHOVAH.

7:31 And the priest shall burn the fat on the altar: but the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'.

7:32 And the right shoulder shall you give to the priest for an heave offering of the sacrifices of your peace offerings.

7:33 He among the sons of Aaron, that offers the blood of the peace offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part.

7:34 For the wave breast and the heave shoulder have I taken of the children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons by a statute forever from among the children of Israel.

7:35 This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of YEHOVAH made by fire, in the day when he presented them to minister to YEHOVAH in the priest's office;

7:36 Which YEHOVAH commanded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute forever throughout their generations.

7:37 This is the law of the burnt offering, of the meat offering, and of the sin offering, and of the trespass offering, and of the consecrations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings;

7:38 Which YEHOVAH commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations to YEHOVAH, in the wilderness of Sinai.


8:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

8:2 Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and a bullock for the sin offering, and two rams, and a basket of unleavened bread;

8:3 And gather you all the congregation together to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

8:4 And Moses did as YEHOVAH commanded him; and the assembly was gathered together to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

8:5 And Moses said to the congregation, This is the thing which YEHOVAH commanded to be done.

8:6 And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water.

8:7 And he put on him the coat, and girded him with the girdle, and clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod on him, and he girded him with the curious girdle of the ephod, and bound it to him therewith.

8:8 And he put the breastplate on him: also he put in the breastplate the Urim and the Thummim.

8:9 And he put the turban on his head; also on the turban, even on his forefront, did he put the golden plate, the holy crown; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

8:10 And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was therein, and sanctified them.

8:11 And he sprinkled thereof on the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all his vessels, both the laver and his foot, to sanctify them.

8:12 And he poured of the anointing oil on Aaron's head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.

8:13 And Moses brought Aaron's sons, and put coats on them, and girded them with girdles, and put bonnets on them; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

8:14 And he brought the bullock for the sin offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the bullock for the sin offering.

8:15 And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it on the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to make reconciliation on it.

8:16 And he took all the fat that was on the inwards, and the lobe above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and Moses burned it on the altar.

8:17 But the bullock, and his hide, his flesh, and his dung, he burnt with fire without the camp; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

8:18 And he brought the ram for the burnt offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram.

8:19 And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood on the altar round about.

8:20 And he cut the ram into pieces; and Moses burnt the head, and the pieces, and the fat.

8:21 And he washed the inwards and the legs in water; and Moses burnt the whole ram on the altar: it was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet smell, and an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

8:22 And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram.

8:23 And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it on the tip of Aaron's right ear, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the great toe of his right foot.

8:24 And he brought Aaron's sons, and Moses put of the blood on the tip of their right ear, and on the thumbs of their right hands, and on the great toes of their right feet: and Moses sprinkled the blood on the altar round about.

8:25 And he took the fat, and the rump, and all the fat that was on the inwards, and the lobe above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right shoulder:

8:26 And out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before YEHOVAH, he took one unleavened cake, and a cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and put them on the fat, and on the right shoulder:

8:27 And he put all on Aaron's hands, and on his sons' hands, and waved them for a wave offering before YEHOVAH.

8:28 And Moses took them from off their hands, and burnt them on the altar on the burnt offering: they were consecrations for a sweet smell: it is an offering made by fire to YEHOVAH.

8:29 And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave offering before YEHOVAH: for of the ram of consecration it was Moses' part; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

8:30 And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was on the altar, and sprinkled it on Aaron, and on his garments, and on his sons, and on his sons' garments with him; and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.

8:31 And Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and there eat it with the bread that is in the basket of consecrations, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it.

8:32 And that which remains of the flesh and of the bread shall you burn with fire.

8:33 And you shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation in seven days, until the days of your consecration be at an end: for seven days shall he consecrate you.

8:34 As he has done this day, so YEHOVAH has commanded to do, to make an atonement for you.

8:35 Therefore shall you abide at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of YEHOVAH, that you die not: for so I am commanded.

8:36 So Aaron and his sons did all things which YEHOVAH commanded by the hand of Moses.


9:1 And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;

9:2 And he said to Aaron, Take you a young calf for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before YEHOVAH.

9:3 And to the children of Israel you shall speak, saying, Take you a kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both of the first year, without blemish, for a burnt offering;

9:4 Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before YEHOVAH; and a meat offering mingled with oil: for to day YEHOVAH will appear to you.

9:5 And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near and stood before YEHOVAH.

9:6 And Moses said, This is the thing which YEHOVAH commanded that you should do: and the glory of YEHOVAH shall appear to you.

9:7 And Moses said to Aaron, Go to the altar, and offer your sin offering, and your burnt offering, and make an atonement for yourself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and make an atonement for them; as YEHOVAH commanded.

9:8 Aaron therefore went to the altar, and slew the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself.

9:9 And the sons of Aaron brought the blood to him: and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it on the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar:

9:10 But the fat, and the kidneys, and the lobe above the liver of the sin offering, he burnt on the altar; as YEHOVAH commanded Moses.

9:11 And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without the camp.

9:12 And he slew the burnt offering; and Aaron's sons presented to him the blood, which he sprinkled round about on the altar.

9:13 And they presented the burnt offering to him, with the pieces thereof, and the head: and he burnt them on the altar.

9:14 And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt them on the burnt offering on the altar.

9:15 And he brought the people's offering, and took the goat, which was the sin offering for the people, and slew it, and offered it for sin, as the first.

9:16 And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it according to the manner.

9:17 And he brought the meat offering, and took an handful thereof, and burnt it on the altar, beside the burnt sacrifice of the morning.

9:18 He slew also the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings, which was for the people: and Aaron's sons presented to him the blood, which he sprinkled on the altar round about,

9:19 And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump, and that which covers the inwards, and the kidneys, and the lobe above the liver:

9:20 And they put the fat on the breasts, and he burnt the fat on the altar:

9:21 And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave offering before YEHOVAH; as Moses commanded.

9:22 And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed them, and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and peace offerings.

9:23 And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of YEHOVAH appeared to all the people.

9:24 And there came a fire out from before YEHOVAH, and consumed on the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.


10:1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before YEHOVAH, which he commanded them not.

10:2 And there went out fire from YEHOVAH, and devoured them, and they died before YEHOVAH.

10:3 Then Moses said to Aaron, This is it that YEHOVAH spoke, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come near me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.

10:4 And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said to them, Come near, carry your brothers from before the sanctuary out of the camp.

10:5 So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said.

10:6 And Moses said to Aaron, and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest you die, and lest wrath come on all the people: but let your brothers, the whole house of Israel, mourn the burning which YEHOVAH has kindled.

10:7 And you shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, lest you die: for the anointing oil of YEHOVAH is on you. And they did according to the word of Moses.

10:8 And YEHOVAH spoke to Aaron, saying,

10:9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, you, nor your sons with you, when you go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest you die: it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations:

10:10 And that you may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

10:11 And that you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which YEHOVAH has spoken to them by the hand of Moses.

10:12 And Moses spoke to Aaron, and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meat offering that remains of the offerings of YEHOVAH made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar: for it is most holy:

10:13 And you shall eat it in the holy place, because it is your due, and your sons' due, of the sacrifices of YEHOVAH made by fire: for so I am commanded.

10:14 And the wave breast and heave shoulder shall you eat in a clean place; you, and your sons, and your daughters with you: for they be your due, and your sons' due, which are given out of the sacrifices of peace offerings of the children of Israel.

10:15 The heave shoulder and the wave breast shall they bring with the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering before YEHOVAH; and it shall be yours, and your sons' with you, by a statute forever; as YEHOVAH has commanded.

10:16 And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,

10:17 Why have you not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy, and he has given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before YEHOVAH?

10:18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: you should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.

10:19 And Aaron said to Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before YEHOVAH; and such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of YEHOVAH?

10:20 And when Moses heard that, he was content.


11:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying to them,

11:2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which you shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

11:3 Whatever parts the hoof, and is cloven footed, and chews the cud, among the beasts, that shall you eat.

11:4 Nevertheless these shall you not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he chews the cud, but divides not the hoof; he is unclean to you.

11:5 And the coney, because he chews the cud, but divides not the hoof; he is unclean to you.

11:6 And the hare, because he chews the cud, but divides not the hoof; he is unclean to you.

11:7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be cloven footed, yet he chews not the cud; he is unclean to you.

11:8 Of their flesh shall you not eat, and their carcass shall you not touch; they are unclean to you.

11:9 These shall you eat of all that are in the waters: whatever has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall you eat.

11:10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination to you:

11:11 They shall be even an abomination to you; you shall not eat of their flesh, but you shall have their carcasses in abomination.

11:12 Whatever has no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination to you.

11:13 And these are they which you shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,

11:14 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;

11:15 Every raven after his kind;

11:16 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,

11:17 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,

11:18 And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,

11:19 And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.

11:20 All fowls that creep, going on all four, shall be an abomination to you.

11:21 Yet these may you eat of every flying creeping thing that goes on all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap with on the earth;

11:22 Even these of them you may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.

11:23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination to you.

11:24 And for these you shall be unclean: whoever touches the carcass of them shall be unclean until the even.

11:25 And whoever bears ought of the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

11:26 The carcasses of every beast which divides the hoof, and is not cloven footed, nor chews the cud, are unclean to you: everyone that touches them shall be unclean.

11:27 And whatever goes on his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean to you: whoever touches their carcass shall be unclean until the even.

11:28 And he that bears the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean to you.

11:29 These also shall be unclean to you among the creeping things that creep on the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,

11:30 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.

11:31 These are unclean to you among all that creep: whoever does touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.

11:32 And on whatever any of them, when they are dead, does fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed.

11:33 And every earthen vessel, into where any of them falls, whatever is in it shall be unclean; and you shall break it.

11:34 Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water comes shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean.

11:35 And everything whereupon any part of their carcass falls shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken down: for they are unclean and shall be unclean to you.

11:36 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which touches their carcass shall be unclean.

11:37 And if any part of their carcass fall on any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean.

11:38 But if any water be put on the seed, and any part of their carcass fall thereon, it shall be unclean to you.

11:39 And if any beast, of which you may eat, die; he that touches the carcass thereof shall be unclean until the even.

11:40 And he that eats of the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: he also that bears the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

11:41 And every creeping thing that creeps on the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.

11:42 Whatever goes on the belly, and whatever goes on all four, or whatever has more feet among all creeping things that creep on the earth, them you shall not eat; for they are an abomination.

11:43 You shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creeps, neither shall you make yourselves unclean with them, that you should be defiled thereby.

11:44 For I am YEHOVAH ELOHEICHEM: you shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and you shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall you defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creeps on the earth.

11:45 For I am YEHOVAH that brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be ELOHEICHEM: you shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

11:46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps on the earth:

11:47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.


12:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses, saying,

12:2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a male child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.

12:3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.

12:4 And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled.

12:5 But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying three score and six days.

12:6 And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to the priest:

12:7 Who shall offer it before YEHOVAH, and make an atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is the law for her that has born a male or a female.

12:8 And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.


13:1 And YEHOVAH spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,

13:2 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought to Aaron the priest, or to one of his sons the priests:

13:3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

13:4 If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white; then the priest shall shut up him that has the plague seven days:

13:5 And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread not in the skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:

13:6 And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague be somewhat dark, and the plague spread not in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean: it is but a scab: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

13:7 But if the scab spread much abroad in the skin, after that he has been seen of the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen of the priest again.

13:8 And if the priest see that, behold, the scab spreads in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a leprosy.

13:9 When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought to the priest;

13:10 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the rising be white in the skin, and it have turned the hair white, and there be quick raw flesh in the rising;

13:11 It is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not shut him up: for he is unclean.

13:12 And if a leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the leprosy cover all the skin of him that has the plague from his head even to his foot, wherever the priest looks;

13:13 Then the priest shall consider: and, behold, if the leprosy have covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that has the plague: it is all turned white: he is clean.

13:14 But when raw flesh appears in him, he shall be unclean.

13:15 And the priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him to be unclean: for the raw flesh is unclean: it is a leprosy.

13:16 Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed to white, he shall come to the priest;

13:17 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the plague be turned into white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that has the plague: he is clean.

13:18 The flesh also, in which, even in the skin thereof, was a boil, and is healed,

13:19 And in the place of the boil there be a white rising, or a bright spot, white, and somewhat reddish, and it be showed to the priest;

13:20 And if, when the priest sees it, behold, it be in sight lower than the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white; the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the boil.

13:21 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs therein, and if it be not lower than the skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

13:22 And if it spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague.

13:23 But if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not, it is a burning boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

13:24 Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is a hot burning, and the quick flesh that burns have a white bright spot, somewhat reddish, or white;

13:25 Then the priest shall look on it: and, behold, if the hair in the bright spot be turned white, and it be in sight deeper than the skin; it is a leprosy broken out of the burning: why the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

13:26 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hair in the bright spot, and it be no lower than the other skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

13:27 And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and if it be spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

13:28 And if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not in the skin, but it be somewhat dark; it is a rising of the burning, and the priest shall pronounce him clean: for it is an inflammation of the burning.

13:29 If a man or woman have a plague on the head or the beard;

13:30 Then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be in sight deeper than the skin; and there be in it a yellow thin hair; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry scale, even a leprosy on the head or beard.

13:31 And if the priest look on the plague of the scale, and, behold, it be not in sight deeper than the skin, and that there is no black hair in it; then the priest shall shut up him that has the plague of the scale seven days:

13:32 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague: and, behold, if the scale spread not, and there be in it no yellow hair, and the scale be not in sight deeper than the skin;

13:33 He shall be shaven, but the scale shall he not shave; and the priest shall shut up him that has the scale seven days more:

13:34 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scale: and, behold, if the scale be not spread in the skin, nor be in sight deeper than the skin; then the priest shall pronounce him clean: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

13:35 But if the scale spread much in the skin after his cleansing;

13:36 Then the priest shall look on him: and, behold, if the scale be spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for yellow hair; he is unclean.

13:37 But if the scale be in his sight at a stay, and that there is black hair grown up therein; the scale is healed, he is clean: and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

13:38 If a man also or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright spots, even white bright spots;
