You shall not do as they do in the land of Egypt, where you dwelt, and you shall not do as they do in the land of Canaan, to which I am bringing you. You shall not walk in their statutes. כְּמַעֲשֵׂה אֶרֶץ־מִצְרַיִם אֲשֶׁר יְשַׁבְתֶּם־בָּהּ לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ וּכְמַעֲשֵׂה אֶרֶץ־כְּנַעַן אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי מֵבִיא אֶתְכֶם שָׁמָּה לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ וּבְחֻקֹּתֵיהֶם לֹא תֵלֵכוּ׃

But you shall keep my statutes and my ordinances and do none of these abominations, either the native or the stranger who sojourns among you וּשְׁמַרְתֶּם אַתֶּם אֶת־חֻקֹּתַי וְאֶת־מִשְׁפָּטַי וְלֹא תַעֲשׂוּ מִכֹּל הַתֹּועֵבֹת הָאֵלֶּה הָאֶזְרָח וְהַגֵּר הַגָּר בְּתֹוכְכֶם׃  
(for all of these abominations the men of the land did, who were before you, so that the land became defiled); כִּי אֶת־כָּל־הַתֹּועֵבֹת הָאֵל עָשׂוּ אַנְשֵׁי־הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר לִפְנֵיכֶם וַתִּטְמָא הָאָרֶץ׃

If a woman approaches any beast and lies with it, you shall kill the woman and the beast; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them. וְאִשָּׁה אֲשֶׁר תִּקְרַב אֶל־כָּל־בְּהֵמָה לְרִבְעָה אֹתָהּ וְהָרַגְתָּ אֶת־הָאִשָּׁה וְאֶת־הַבְּהֵמָה מֹות יוּמָתוּ דְּמֵיהֶם בָּם׃  
"If a man takes his sister, a daughter of his father or a daughter of his mother, and sees her nakedness, and she sees his nakedness, it is a shameful thing, and they shall be cut off in the sight of the children of their people; he has uncovered his sister's nakedness, he shall bear his iniquity. וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר־יִקַּח אֶת־אֲחֹתֹו בַּת־אָבִיו אֹו בַת־אִמֹּו וְרָאָה אֶת־עֶרְוָתָהּ וְהִיא־תִרְאֶה אֶת־עֶרְוָתֹו חֶסֶד הוּא וְנִכְרְתוּ לְעֵינֵי בְּנֵי עַםָּם עֶרְוַת אֲחֹתֹו גִּלָּה עֲוֹנֹו יִשָּׂא׃  
If a man lies with a woman having her sickness, and uncovers her nakedness, he has made naked her fountain, and she has uncovered the fountain of her blood; both of them shall be cut off from among their people. וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר־יִשְׁכַּב אֶת־אִשָּׁה דָּוָה וְגִלָּה אֶת־עֶרְוָתָהּ אֶת־מְקֹרָהּ הֶעֱרָה וְהִיא גִּלְּתָה אֶת־מְקֹור דָּמֶיהָ וְנִכְרְתוּ שְׁנֵיהֶם מִקֶּרֶב עַםָּם׃ 
You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother's sister or of your father's sister, for that is to make naked one's near kin; they shall bear their iniquity. וְעֶרְוַת אֲחֹות אִמְּךָ וַאֲחֹות אָבִיךָ לֹא תְגַלֵּה כִּי אֶת־שְׁאֵרֹו הֶעֱרָה עֲוֹנָם יִשָּׂאוּ׃  
If a man lies with his uncle's wife, he has uncovered his uncle's nakedness; they shall bear their sin, they shall die childless. וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִשְׁכַּב אֶת־דֹּדָתֹו עֶרְוַת דֹּדֹו גִּלָּה חֶטְאָם יִשָּׂאוּ עֲרִירִים יָמֻתוּ׃  
If a man takes his brother's wife, it is impurity; he has uncovered his brother's nakedness, they shall be childless. וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִקַּח אֶת־אֵשֶׁת אָחִיו נִדָּה הִוא עֶרְוַת אָחִיו גִּלָּה עֲרִירִים יִהְיוּ׃  
"You shall therefore keep all my statutes and all my ordinances, and do them; that the land where I am bringing you to dwell may not vomit you out. וּשְׁמַרְתֶּם אֶת־כָּל־חֻקֹּתַי וְאֶת־כָּל־מִשְׁפָּטַי וַעֲשִׂיתֶם אֹתָם וְלֹא־תָקִיא אֶתְכֶם הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי מֵבִיא אֶתְכֶם שָׁמָּה לָשֶׁבֶת בָּהּ׃  
And you shall not walk in the customs of the nation which I am casting out before you; for they did all these things, and therefore I abhorred them. וְלֹא תֵלְכוּ בְּחֻקֹּת הַגֹּוי אֲשֶׁר־אֲנִי מְשַׁלֵּחַ מִפְּנֵיכֶם כִּי אֶת־כָּל־אֵלֶּה עָשׂוּ וָאָקֻץ בָּם׃

You shall therefore make a distinction between the clean beast and the unclean, and between the unclean bird and the clean; you shall not make yourselves abominable by beast or by bird or by anything with which the ground teems, which I have set apart for you to hold unclean. וְהִבְדַּלְתֶּם בֵּין־הַבְּהֵמָה הַטְּהֹרָה לַטְּמֵאָה וּבֵין־הָעֹוף הַטָּמֵא לַטָּהֹר וְלֹא־תְשַׁקְּצוּ אֶת־נַפְשֹׁתֵיכֶם בַּבְּהֵמָה וּבָעֹוף וּבְכֹל אֲשֶׁר תִּרְמֹשׂ הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר־הִבְדַּלְתִּי לָכֶם לְטַמֵּא׃  
You shall be holy to me; for I the LORD am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be mine. וִהְיִיתֶם לִי קְדֹשִׁים כִּי קָדֹושׁ אֲנִי יְהוָה וָאַבְדִּל אֶתְכֶם מִן־הָעַמִּים לִהְיֹות לִי׃

He shall not defile himself as a husband among his people and so profane himself. לֹא יִטַּמָּא בַּעַל בְּעַמָּיו לְהֵחַלֹּו׃  
They shall not make tonsures upon their heads, nor shave off the edges of their beards, nor make any cuttings in their flesh. לֹא־[כ= יִקְרְחָה] [ק= יִקְרְחוּ] קָרְחָה בְּרֹאשָׁם וּפְאַת זְקָנָם לֹא יְגַלֵּחוּ וּבִבְשָׂרָם לֹא יִשְׂרְטוּ שָׂרָטֶת׃  
They shall be holy to their God, and not profane the name of their God; for they offer the offerings by fire to the LORD, the bread of their God; therefore they shall be holy. קְדֹשִׁים יִהְיוּ לֵאלֹהֵיהֶם וְלֹא יְחַלְּלוּ שֵׁם אֱלֹהֵיהֶם כִּי אֶת־אִשֵּׁי יְהוָה לֶחֶם אֱלֹהֵיהֶם הֵם מַקְרִיבִם וְהָיוּ קֹדֶשׁ׃  
They shall not marry a harlot or a woman who has been defiled; neither shall they marry a woman divorced from her husband; for the priest is holy to his God. אִשָּׁה זֹנָה וַחֲלָלָה לֹא יִקָּחוּ וְאִשָּׁה גְּרוּשָׁה מֵאִישָׁהּ לֹא יִקָּחוּ כִּי־קָדֹשׁ הוּא לֵאלֹהָיו׃  
You shall consecrate him, for he offers the bread of your God; he shall be holy to you; for I the LORD, who sanctify you, am holy. וְקִדַּשְׁתֹּו כִּי־אֶת־לֶחֶם אֱלֹהֶיךָ הוּא מַקְרִיב קָדֹשׁ יִהְיֶה־לָּךְ כִּי קָדֹושׁ אֲנִי יְהוָה מְקַדִּשְׁכֶם׃  
And the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself by playing the harlot, profanes her father; she shall be burned with fire. וּבַת אִישׁ כֹּהֵן כִּי תֵחֵל לִזְנֹות אֶת־אָבִיהָ הִיא מְחַלֶּלֶת בָּאֵשׁ תִּשָּׂרֵף׃ ס  
"The priest who is chief among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil is poured, and who has been consecrated to wear the garments, shall not let the hair of his head hang loose, nor rend his clothes; וְהַכֹּהֵן הַגָּדֹול מֵאֶחָיו אֲשֶׁר־יוּצַק עַל־רֹאשֹׁו שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה וּמִלֵּא אֶת־יָדֹו לִלְבֹּשׁ אֶת־הַבְּגָדִים אֶת־רֹאשֹׁו לֹא יִפְרָע וּבְגָדָיו לֹא יִפְרֹם׃

A widow, or one divorced, or a woman who has been defiled, or a harlot, these he shall not marry; but he shall take to wife a virgin of his own people, אַלְמָנָה וּגְרוּשָׁה וַחֲלָלָה זֹנָה אֶת־אֵלֶּה לֹא יִקָּח כִּי אִם־בְּתוּלָה מֵעַמָּיו יִקַּח אִשָּׁה׃

For no one who has a blemish shall draw near, a man blind or lame, or one who has a mutilated face or a limb too long, כִּי כָל־אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר־בֹּו מוּם לֹא יִקְרָב אִישׁ עִוֵּר אֹו פִסֵּחַ אֹו חָרֻם אֹו שָׂרוּעַ׃  
or a man who has an injured foot or an injured hand, אֹו אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר־יִהְיֶה בֹו שֶׁבֶר רָגֶל אֹו שֶׁבֶר יָד׃  
or a hunchback, or a dwarf, or a man with a defect in his sight or an itching disease or scabs or crushed testicles; אֹו־גִבֵּן אֹו־דַק אֹו תְּבַלֻּל בְּעֵינֹו אֹו גָרָב אֹו יַלֶּפֶת אֹו מְרֹוחַ אָשֶׁךְ׃  
no man of the descendants of Aaron the priest who has a blemish shall come near to offer the LORD's offerings by fire; since he has a blemish, he shall not come near to offer the bread of his God. כָּל־אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר־בֹּו מוּם מִזֶּרַע אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן לֹא יִגַּשׁ לְהַקְרִיב אֶת־אִשֵּׁי יְהוָה מוּם בֹּו אֵת לֶחֶם אֱלֹהָיו לֹא יִגַּשׁ לְהַקְרִיב׃  
He may eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy and of the holy things, לֶחֶם אֱלֹהָיו מִקָּדְשֵׁי הַקֳּדָשִׁים וּמִן־הַקֳּדָשִׁים יֹאכֵל׃  
but he shall not come near the veil or approach the altar, because he has a blemish, that he may not profane my sanctuaries; for I am the LORD who sanctify them." אַךְ אֶל־הַפָּרֹכֶת לֹא יָבֹא וְאֶל־הַמִּזְבֵּחַ לֹא יִגַּשׁ כִּי־מוּם בֹּו וְלֹא יְחַלֵּל אֶת־מִקְדָּשַׁי כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה מְקַדְּשָׁם׃

"Tell Aaron and his sons to keep away from the holy things of the people of Israel, which they dedicate to me, so that they may not profane my holy name; I am the LORD. דַּבֵּר אֶל־אַהֲרֹן וְאֶל־בָּנָיו וְיִנָּזְרוּ מִקָּדְשֵׁי בְנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵל וְלֹא יְחַלְּלוּ אֶת־שֵׁם קָדְשִׁי אֲשֶׁר הֵם מַקְדִּשִׁים לִי אֲנִי יְהוָה׃  
Say to them, 'If any one of all your descendants throughout your generations approaches the holy things, which the people of Israel dedicate to the LORD, while he has an uncleanness, that person shall be cut off from my presence: I am the LORD. אֱמֹר אֲלֵהֶם לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם כָּל־אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר־יִקְרַב מִכָּל־זַרְעֲכֶם אֶל־הַקֳּדָשִׁים אֲשֶׁר יַקְדִּישׁוּ בְנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵל לַיהוָה וְטֻמְאָתֹו עָלָיו וְנִכְרְתָה הַנֶּפֶשׁ הַהִוא מִלְּפָנַי אֲנִי יְהוָה׃  
None of the line of Aaron who is a leper or suffers a discharge may eat of the holy things until he is clean. Whoever touches anything that is unclean through contact with the dead or a man who has had an emission of semen, אִישׁ אִישׁ מִזֶּרַע אַהֲרֹן וְהוּא צָרוּעַ אֹו זָב בַּקֳּדָשִׁים לֹא יֹאכַל עַד אֲשֶׁר יִטְהָר וְהַנֹּגֵעַ בְּכָל־טְמֵא־נֶפֶשׁ אֹו אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר־תֵּצֵא מִמֶּנּוּ שִׁכְבַת־זָרַע׃  
and whoever touches a creeping thing by which he may be made unclean or a man from whom he may take uncleanness, whatever his uncleanness may be - אֹו־אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִגַּע בְּכָל־שֶׁרֶץ אֲשֶׁר יִטְמָא־לֹו אֹו בְאָדָם אֲשֶׁר יִטְמָא־לֹו לְכֹל טֻמְאָתֹו׃  
the person who touches any such shall be unclean until the evening and shall not eat of the holy things unless he has bathed his body in water. נֶפֶשׁ אֲשֶׁר תִּגַּע־בֹּו וְטָמְאָה עַד־הָעָרֶב וְלֹא יֹאכַל מִן־הַקֳּדָשִׁים כִּי אִם־רָחַץ בְּשָׂרֹו בַּמָּיִם׃  
When the sun is down he shall be clean; and afterward he may eat of the holy things, because such are his food. וּבָא הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ וְטָהֵר וְאַחַר יֹאכַל מִן־הַקֳּדָשִׁים כִּי לַחְמֹו הוּא׃  
That which dies of itself or is torn by beasts he shall not eat, defiling himself by it: I am the LORD.' נְבֵלָה וּטְרֵפָה לֹא יֹאכַל לְטָמְאָה־בָהּ אֲנִי יְהוָה׃  
They shall therefore keep my charge, lest they bear sin for it and die thereby when they profane it: I am the LORD who sanctify them. וְשָׁמְרוּ אֶת־מִשְׁמַרְתִּי וְלֹא־יִשְׂאוּ עָלָיו חֵטְא וּמֵתוּ בֹו כִּי יְחַלְּלֻהוּ אֲנִי יְהוָה מְקַדְּשָׁם׃  
"An outsider shall not eat of a holy thing. A sojourner of the priest's or a hired servant shall not eat of a holy thing; וְכָל־זָר לֹא־יֹאכַל קֹדֶשׁ תֹּושַׁב כֹּהֵן וְשָׂכִיר לֹא־יֹאכַל קֹדֶשׁ׃  
but if a priest buys a slave as his property for money, the slave may eat of it; and those that are born in his house may eat of his food. וְכֹהֵן כִּי־יִקְנֶה נֶפֶשׁ קִנְיַן כַּסְפֹּו הוּא יֹאכַל בֹּו וִילִיד בֵּיתֹו הֵם יֹאכְלוּ בְלַחְמֹו׃  
If a priest's daughter is married to an outsider she shall not eat of the offering of the holy things. וּבַת־כֹּהֵן כִּי תִהְיֶה לְאִישׁ זָר הִוא בִּתְרוּמַת הַקֳּדָשִׁים לֹא תֹאכֵל׃  
But if a priest's daughter is a widow or divorced, and has no child, and returns to her father's house, as in her youth, she may eat of her father's food; yet no outsider shall eat of it. וּבַת־כֹּהֵן כִּי תִהְיֶה אַלְמָנָה וּגְרוּשָׁה וְזֶרַע אֵין לָהּ וְשָׁבָה אֶל־בֵּית אָבִיהָ כִּנְעוּרֶיהָ מִלֶּחֶם אָבִיהָ תֹּאכֵל וְכָל־זָר לֹא־יֹאכַל בֹּו׃ ס  
And if a man eats of a holy thing unwittingly, he shall add the fifth of its value to it, and give the holy thing to the priest. וְאִישׁ כִּי־יֹאכַל קֹדֶשׁ בִּשְׁגָגָה וְיָסַף חֲמִשִׁיתֹו עָלָיו וְנָתַן לַכֹּהֵן אֶת־הַקֹּדֶשׁ׃

And when any one offers a sacrifice of peace offerings to the LORD, to fulfil a vow or as a freewill offering, from the herd or from the flock, to be accepted it must be perfect; there shall be no blemish in it. וְאִישׁ כִּי־יַקְרִיב זֶבַח־שְׁלָמִים לַיהוָה לְפַלֵּא־נֶדֶר אֹו לִנְדָבָה בַּבָּקָר אֹו בַצֹּאן תָּמִים יִהְיֶה לְרָצֹון כָּל־מוּם לֹא יִהְיֶה־בֹּו׃

A bull or a lamb which has a part too long or too short you may present for a freewill offering; but for a votive offering it cannot be accepted. וְשֹׁור וָשֶׂה שָׂרוּעַ וְקָלוּט נְדָבָה תַּעֲשֶׂה אֹתֹו וּלְנֵדֶר לֹא יֵרָצֶה׃

neither shall you offer as the bread of your God any such animals gotten from a foreigner. Since there is a blemish in them, because of their mutilation, they will not be accepted for you." וּמִיַּד בֶּן־נֵכָר לֹא תַקְרִיבוּ אֶת־לֶחֶם אֱלֹהֵיכֶם מִכָּל־אֵלֶּה כִּי מָשְׁחָתָם בָּהֶם מוּם בָּם לֹא יֵרָצוּ לָכֶם׃ ף

And the LORD said to Moses, וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל־מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר׃  
"Say to the people of Israel, When you come into the land which I give you and reap its harvest, you shall bring the sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest; דַּבֵּר אֶל־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם כִּי־תָבֹאוּ אֶל־הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי נֹתֵן לָכֶם וּקְצַרְתֶּם אֶת־קְצִירָהּ וַהֲבֵאתֶם אֶת־עֹמֶר רֵאשִׁית קְצִירְכֶם אֶל־הַכֹּהֵן׃

And you shall present with the bread seven lambs a year old without blemish, and one young bull, and two rams; they shall be a burnt offering to the LORD, with their cereal offering and their drink offerings, an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to the LORD. וְהִקְרַבְתֶּם עַל־הַלֶּחֶם שִׁבְעַת כְּבָשִׂים תְּמִיםִם בְּנֵי שָׁנָה וּפַר בֶּן־בָּקָר אֶחָד וְאֵילִם שְׁנָיִם יִהְיוּ עֹלָה לַיהוָה וּמִנְחָתָם וְנִסְכֵּיהֶם אִשֵּׁה רֵיחַ־נִיחֹחַ לַיהוָה׃

Now an Israelite woman's son, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the people of Israel; and the Israelite woman's son and a man of Israel quarreled in the camp, וַיֵּצֵא בֶּן־אִשָּׁה יִשְׂרְאֵלִית וְהוּא בֶּן־אִישׁ מִצְרִי בְּתֹוךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיִּנָּצוּ בַּמַּחֲנֶה בֶּן הַיִּשְׂרְאֵלִית וְאִישׁ הַיִּשְׂרְאֵלִי׃ Penalties. Lv.24.10-23

For it is a jubilee; it shall be holy to you; you shall eat what it yields out of the field. כִּי יֹובֵל הִוא קֹדֶשׁ תִּהְיֶה לָכֶם מִן־הַשָּׂדֶה תֹּאכְלוּ אֶת־תְּבוּאָתָהּ׃  
"In this year of jubilee each of you shall return to his property. בִּשְׁנַת הַיֹּובֵל הַזֹּאת תָּשֻׁבוּ אִישׁ אֶל־אֲחֻזָּתֹו׃  
And if you sell to your neighbor or buy from your neighbor, you shall not wrong one another. וְכִי־תִמְכְּרוּ מִמְכָּר לַעֲמִיתֶךָ אֹו קָנֹה מִיַּד עֲמִיתֶךָ אַל־תֹּונוּ אִישׁ אֶת־אָחִיו׃  
According to the number of years after the jubilee, you shall buy from your neighbor, and according to the number of years for crops he shall sell to you. בְּמִסְפַּר שָׁנִים אַחַר הַיֹּובֵל תִּקְנֶה מֵאֵת עֲמִיתֶךָ בְּמִסְפַּר שְׁנֵי־תְבוּאֹת יִמְכָּר־לָךְ׃  
If the years are many you shall increase the price, and if the years are few you shall diminish the price, for it is the number of the crops that he is selling to you. לְפִי רֹב הַשָּׁנִים תַּרְבֶּה מִקְנָתֹו וּלְפִי מְעֹט הַשָּׁנִים תַּמְעִיט מִקְנָתֹו כִּי מִסְפַּר תְּבוּאֹת הוּא מֹכֵר לָךְ׃  
You shall not wrong one another, but you shall fear your God; for I am the LORD your God. וְלֹא תֹונוּ אִישׁ אֶת־עֲמִיתֹו וְיָרֵאתָ מֵאֱלֹהֶיךָ כִּי אֲנִי יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם׃  
"Therefore you shall do my statutes, and keep my ordinances and perform them; so you will dwell in the land securely. וַעֲשִׂיתֶם אֶת־חֻקֹּתַי וְאֶת־מִשְׁפָּטַי תִּשְׁמְרוּ וַעֲשִׂיתֶם אֹתָם וִישַׁבְתֶּם עַל־הָאָרֶץ לָבֶטַח׃ Abundance for the Sabbatical year. Lv.25.18-22
The land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill, and dwell in it securely. וְנָתְנָה הָאָרֶץ פִּרְיָהּ וַאֲכַלְתֶּם לָשֹׂבַע וִישַׁבְתֶּם לָבֶטַח עָלֶיהָ׃  
And if you say, 'What shall we eat in the seventh year, if we may not sow or gather in our crop?' וְכִי תֹאמְרוּ מַה־נֹּאכַל בַּשָּׁנָה הַשְּׁבִיעִת הֵן לֹא נִזְרָע וְלֹא נֶאֱסֹף אֶת־תְּבוּאָתֵנוּ׃ 
I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, so that it will bring forth fruit for three years. וְצִוִּיתִי אֶת־בִּרְכָתִי לָכֶם בַּשָּׁנָה הַשִּׁשִּׁית וְעָשָׂת אֶת־הַתְּבוּאָה לִשְׁלֹשׁ הַשָּׁנִים׃  
When you sow in the eighth year, you will be eating old produce; until the ninth year, when its produce comes in, you shall eat the old. וּזְרַעְתֶּם אֵת הַשָּׁנָה הַשְּׁמִינִת וַאֲכַלְתֶּם מִן־הַתְּבוּאָה יָשָׁן עַד הַשָּׁנָה הַתְּשִׁיעִת עַד־בֹּוא תְּבוּאָתָהּ תֹּאכְלוּ יָשָׁן׃  
The land shall not be sold in perpetuity, for the land is mine; for you are strangers and sojourners with me. וְהָאָרֶץ לֹא תִמָּכֵר לִצְמִתֻת כִּי־לִי הָאָרֶץ כִּי־גֵרִים וְתֹושָׁבִים אַתֶּם עִמָּדִי׃ Restoration of property. Lv.25.23-34
And in all the country you possess, you shall grant a redemption of the land. וּבְכֹל אֶרֶץ אֲחֻזַּתְכֶם גְּאֻלָּה תִּתְּנוּ לָאָרֶץ׃ ס  
"If your brother becomes poor, and sells part of his property, then his next of kin shall come and redeem what his brother has sold. כִּי־יָמוּךְ אָחִיךָ וּמָכַר מֵאֲחֻזָּתֹו וּבָא גֹאֲלֹו הַקָּרֹב אֵלָיו וְגָאַל אֵת מִמְכַּר אָחִיו׃  
If a man has no one to redeem it, and then himself becomes prosperous and finds sufficient means to redeem it, וְאִישׁ כִּי לֹא יִהְיֶה־לֹּו גֹּאֵל וְהִשִּׂיגָה יָדֹו וּמָצָא כְּדֵי גְאֻלָּתֹו׃  
let him reckon the years since he sold it and pay back the overpayment to the man to whom he sold it; and he shall return to his property. וְחִשַּׁב אֶת־שְׁנֵי מִמְכָּרֹו וְהֵשִׁיב אֶת־הָעֹדֵף לָאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר מָכַר־לֹו וְשָׁב לַאֲחֻזָּתֹו׃  
But if he has not sufficient means to get it back for himself, then what he sold shall remain in the hand of him who bought it until the year of jubilee; in the jubilee it shall be released, and he shall return to his property. וְאִם לֹא־מָצְאָה יָדֹו דֵּי הָשִׁיב לֹו וְהָיָה מִמְכָּרֹו בְּיַד הַקֹּנֶה אֹתֹו עַד שְׁנַת הַיֹּובֵל וְיָצָא בַּיֹּבֵל וְשָׁב לַאֲחֻזָּתֹו׃  
"If a man sells a dwelling house in a walled city, he may redeem it within a whole year after its sale; for a full year he shall have the right of redemption. וְאִישׁ כִּי־יִמְכֹּר בֵּית־מֹושַׁב עִיר חֹומָה וְהָיְתָה גְּאֻלָּתֹו עַד־תֹּם שְׁנַת מִמְכָּרֹו יָמִים תִּהְיֶה גְאֻלָּתֹו׃  
If it is not redeemed within a full year, then the house that is in the walled city shall be made sure in perpetuity to him who bought it, throughout his generations; it shall not be released in the jubilee. וְאִם לֹא־יִגָּאֵל עַד־מְלֹאת לֹו שָׁנָה תְמִימָה וְקָם הַבַּיִת אֲשֶׁר־בָּעִיר אֲשֶׁר־[כ= לֹא] [ק= לֹו] חֹמָה לַצְּמִיתֻת לַקֹּנֶה אֹתֹו לְדֹרֹתָיו לֹא יֵצֵא בַּיֹּבֵל׃  
But the houses of the villages which have no wall around them shall be reckoned with the fields of the country; they may be redeemed, and they shall be released in the jubilee. וּבָתֵּי הַחֲצֵרִים אֲשֶׁר אֵין־לָהֶם חֹמָה סָבִיב עַל־שְׂדֵה הָאָרֶץ יֵחָשֵׁב גְּאֻלָּה תִּהְיֶה־לֹּו וּבַיֹּבֵל יֵצֵא׃  
Nevertheless the cities of the Levites, the houses in the cities of their possession, the Levites may redeem at any time. וְעָרֵי הַלְוִיִּם בָּתֵּי עָרֵי אֲחֻזָּתָם גְּאֻלַּת עֹולָם תִּהְיֶה לַלְוִיִּם׃  
And if one of the Levites does not exercise his right of redemption, then the house that was sold in a city of their possession shall be released in the jubilee; for the houses in the cities of the Levites are their possession among the people of Israel. וַאֲשֶׁר יִגְאַל מִן־הַלְוִיִּם וְיָצָא מִמְכַּר־בַּיִת וְעִיר אֲחֻזָּתֹו בַּיֹּבֵל כִּי בָתֵּי עָרֵי הַלְוִיִּם הִוא אֲחֻזָּתָם בְּתֹוךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל׃  
But the fields of common land belonging to their cities may not be sold; for that is their perpetual possession. וּשְׂדֵה מִגְרַשׁ עָרֵיהֶם לֹא יִמָּכֵר כִּי־אֲחֻזַּת עֹולָם הוּא לָהֶם׃ ס  
"And if your brother becomes poor, and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall maintain him; as a stranger and a sojourner he shall live with you. וְכִי־יָמוּךְ אָחִיךָ וּמָטָה יָדֹו עִמָּךְ וְהֶחֱזַקְתָּ בֹּו גֵּר וְתֹושָׁב וָחַי עִמָּךְ׃ The poor. Lv.25.35-38
Take no interest from him or increase, but fear your God; that your brother may live beside you. אַל־תִּקַּח מֵאִתֹּו נֶשֶׁךְ וְתַרְבִּית וְיָרֵאתָ מֵאֱלֹהֶיךָ וְחֵי אָחִיךָ עִמָּךְ׃

he shall be with you as a hired servant and as a sojourner. He shall serve with you until the year of the jubilee; כְּשָׂכִיר כְּתֹושָׁב יִהְיֶה עִמָּךְ עַד־שְׁנַת הַיֹּבֵל יַעֲבֹד עִמָּךְ׃  
then he shall go out from you, he and his children with him, and go back to his own family, and return to the possession of his fathers. וְיָצָא מֵעִמָּךְ הוּא וּבָנָיו עִמֹּו וְשָׁב אֶל־מִשְׁפַּחְתֹּו וְאֶל־אֲחֻזַּת אֲבֹתָיו יָשׁוּב׃

As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are round about you. וְעַבְדְּךָ וַאֲמָתְךָ אֲשֶׁר יִהְיוּ־לָךְ מֵאֵת הַגֹּויִם אֲשֶׁר סְבִיבֹתֵיכֶם מֵהֶם תִּקְנוּ עֶבֶד וְאָמָה׃

And I will scatter you among the nations, and I will unsheathe the sword after you; and your land shall be a desolation, and your cities shall be a waste. וְאֶתְכֶם אֱזָרֶה בַגֹּויִם וַהֲרִיקֹתִי אַחֲרֵיכֶם חָרֶב וְהָיְתָה אַרְצְכֶם שְׁמָמָה וְעָרֵיכֶם יִהְיוּ חָרְבָּה׃  
"Then the land shall enjoy its sabbaths as long as it lies desolate, while you are in your enemies' land; then the land shall rest, and enjoy its sabbaths. אָז תִּרְצֶה הָאָרֶץ אֶת־שַׁבְּתֹתֶיהָ כֹּל יְמֵי הֳשַּׁמָּה וְאַתֶּם בְּאֶרֶץ אֹיְבֵיכֶם אָז תִּשְׁבַּת הָאָרֶץ וְהִרְצָת אֶת־שַׁבְּתֹתֶיהָ׃  
As long as it lies desolate it shall have rest, the rest which it had not in your sabbaths when you dwelt upon it. כָּל־יְמֵי הָשַּׁמָּה תִּשְׁבֹּת אֵת אֲשֶׁר לֹא־שָׁבְתָה בְּשַׁבְּתֹתֵיכֶם בְּשִׁבְתְּכֶם עָלֶיהָ׃  
And as for those of you that are left, I will send faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; the sound of a driven leaf shall put them to flight, and they shall flee as one flees from the sword, and they shall fall when none pursues. וְהַנִּשְׁאָרִים בָּכֶם וְהֵבֵאתִי מֹרֶךְ בִּלְבָבָם בְּאַרְצֹת אֹיְבֵיהֶם וְרָדַף אֹתָם קֹול עָלֶה נִדָּף וְנָסוּ מְנֻסַת־חֶרֶב וְנָפְלוּ וְאֵין רֹדֵף׃  
They shall stumble over one another, as if to escape a sword, though none pursues; and you shall have no power to stand before your enemies. וְכָשְׁלוּ אִישׁ־בְּאָחִיו כְּמִפְּנֵי־חֶרֶב וְרֹדֵף אָיִן וְלֹא־תִהְיֶה לָכֶם תְּקוּמָה לִפְנֵי אֹיְבֵיכֶם׃  
And you shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up. וַאֲבַדְתֶּם בַּגֹּויִם וְאָכְלָה אֶתְכֶם אֶרֶץ אֹיְבֵיכֶם׃  
And those of you that are left shall pine away in your enemies' lands because of their iniquity; and also because of the iniquities of their fathers they shall pine away like them. וְהַנִּשְׁאָרִים בָּכֶם יִמַּקּוּ בַּעֲוֹנָם בְּאַרְצֹת אֹיְבֵיכֶם וְאַף בַּעֲוֹנֹת אֲבֹתָם אִתָּם יִמָּקּוּ׃  
"But if they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers in their treachery which they committed against me, and also in walking contrary to me, וְהִתְוַדּוּ אֶת־עֲוֹנָם וְאֶת־עֲוֹן אֲבֹתָם בְּמַעֲלָם אֲשֶׁר מָעֲלוּ־בִי וְאַף אֲשֶׁר־הָלְכוּ עִמִּי בְּקֶרִי׃  
so that I walked contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised heart is humbled and they make amends for their iniquity; אַף־אֲנִי אֵלֵךְ עִםָּם בְּקֶרִי וְהֵבֵאתִי אֹתָם בְּאֶרֶץ אֹיְבֵיהֶם אֹו־אָז יִכָּנַע לְבָבָם הֶעָרֵל וְאָז יִרְצוּ אֶת־עֲוֹנָם׃  
then I will remember my covenant with Jacob, and I will remember my covenant with Isaac and my covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land. וְזָכַרְתִּי אֶת־בְּרִיתִי יַעֲקֹוב וְאַף אֶת־בְּרִיתִי יִצְחָק וְאַף אֶת־בְּרִיתִי אַבְרָהָם אֶזְכֹּר וְהָאָרֶץ אֶזְכֹּר׃  
But the land shall be left by them, and enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate without them; and they shall make amends for their iniquity, because they spurned my ordinances, and their soul abhorred my statutes. וְהָאָרֶץ תֵּעָזֵב מֵהֶם וְתִרֶץ אֶת־שַׁבְּתֹתֶיהָ בָּהְשַׁמָּה מֵהֶם וְהֵם יִרְצוּ אֶת־עֲוֹנָם יַעַן וּבְיַעַן בְּמִשְׁפָּטַי מָאָסוּ וְאֶת־חֻקֹּתַי גָּעֲלָה נַפְשָׁם׃  
Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not spurn them, neither will I abhor them so as to destroy them utterly and break my covenant with them; for I am the LORD their God; וְאַף־גַּם־זֹאת בִּהְיֹותָם בְּאֶרֶץ אֹיְבֵיהֶם לֹא־מְאַסְתִּים וְלֹא־גְעַלְתִּים לְכַלֹּתָם לְהָפֵר בְּרִיתִי אִתָּם כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיהֶם׃  
but I will for their sake remember the covenant with their forefathers, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the LORD." וְזָכַרְתִּי לָהֶם בְּרִית רִאשֹׁנִים אֲשֶׁר הֹוצֵאתִי־אֹתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם לְעֵינֵי הַגֹּויִם לִהְיֹת לָהֶם לֵאלֹהִים אֲנִי יְהוָה׃  
These are the statutes and ordinances and laws which the LORD made between him and the people of Israel on Mount Sinai by Moses. אֵלֶּה הַחֻקִּים וְהַמִּשְׁפָּטִים וְהַתֹּורֹת אֲשֶׁר נָתַן יְהוָה בֵּינֹו וּבֵין בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּהַר סִינַי בְּיַד־מֹשֶׁה׃ ף  
The LORD said to Moses, וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל־מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר׃ P source Lv.1-Lv.27
Vows. Lv.27.1-34
"Say to the people of Israel, When a man makes a special vow of persons to the LORD at your valuation, דַּבֵּר אֶל־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם אִישׁ כִּי יַפְלִא נֶדֶר בְּעֶרְךְּךָ נְפָשֹׁת לַיהוָה׃  
then your valuation of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old shall be fifty shekels of silver, according to the shekel of the sanctuary. וְהָיָה עֶרְךְּךָ הַזָּכָר מִבֶּן עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה וְעַד בֶּן־שִׁשִּׁים שָׁנָה וְהָיָה עֶרְךְּךָ חֲמִשִּׁים שֶׁקֶל כֶּסֶף בְּשֶׁקֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ׃  
If the person is a female, your valuation shall be thirty shekels. וְאִם־נְקֵבָה הִוא וְהָיָה עֶרְךְּךָ שְׁלֹשִׁים שָׁקֶל׃  
If the person is from five years old up to twenty years old, your valuation shall be for a male twenty shekels, and for a female ten shekels. וְאִם מִבֶּן־חָמֵשׁ שָׁנִים וְעַד בֶּן־עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה וְהָיָה עֶרְךְּךָ הַזָּכָר עֶשְׂרִים שְׁקָלִים וְלַנְּקֵבָה עֲשֶׂרֶת שְׁקָלִים׃  
If the person is from a month old up to five years old, your valuation shall be for a male five shekels of silver, and for a female your valuation shall be three shekels of silver. וְאִם מִבֶּן־חֹדֶשׁ וְעַד בֶּן־חָמֵשׁ שָׁנִים וְהָיָה עֶרְךְּךָ הַזָּכָר חֲמִשָּׁה שְׁקָלִים כָּסֶף וְלַנְּקֵבָה עֶרְךְּךָ שְׁלֹשֶׁת שְׁקָלִים כָּסֶף׃  
And if the person is sixty years old and upward, then your valuation for a male shall be fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels. וְאִם מִבֶּן־שִׁשִּׁים שָׁנָה וָמַעְלָה אִם־זָכָר וְהָיָה עֶרְךְּךָ חֲמִשָּׁה עָשָׂר שָׁקֶל וְלַנְּקֵבָה עֲשָׂרָה שְׁקָלִים׃  
And if a man is too poor to pay your valuation, then he shall bring the person before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according to the ability of him who vowed the priest shall value him. וְאִם־מָךְ הוּא מֵעֶרְךֶּךָ וְהֶעֱמִידֹו לִפְנֵי הַכֹּהֵן וְהֶעֱרִיךְ אֹתֹו הַכֹּהֵן עַל־פִּי אֲשֶׁר תַּשִּׂיג יַד הַנֹּדֵר יַעֲרִיכֶנּוּ הַכֹּהֵן׃ ס  
"If it is an animal such as men offer as an offering to the LORD, all of such that any man gives to the LORD is holy. וְאִם־בְּהֵמָה אֲשֶׁר יַקְרִיבוּ מִמֶּנָּה קָרְבָּן לַיהוָה כֹּל אֲשֶׁר יִתֵּן מִמֶּנּוּ לַיהוָה יִהְיֶה־קֹּדֶשׁ׃  
He shall not substitute anything for it or exchange it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a good; and if he makes any exchange of beast for beast, then both it and that for which it is exchanged shall be holy. לֹא יַחֲלִיפֶנּוּ וְלֹא־יָמִיר אֹתֹו טֹוב בְּרָע אֹו־רַע בְּטֹוב וְאִם־הָמֵר יָמִיר בְּהֵמָה בִּבְהֵמָה וְהָיָה־הוּא וּתְמוּרָתֹו יִהְיֶה־קֹּדֶשׁ׃  
And if it is an unclean animal such as is not offered as an offering to the LORD, then the man shall bring the animal before the priest, וְאִם כָּל־בְּהֵמָה טְמֵאָה אֲשֶׁר לֹא־יַקְרִיבוּ מִמֶּנָּה קָרְבָּן לַיהוָה וְהֶעֱמִיד אֶת־הַבְּהֵמָה לִפְנֵי הַכֹּהֵן׃  
and the priest shall value it as either good or bad; as you, the priest, value it, so it shall be. וְהֶעֱרִיךְ הַכֹּהֵן אֹתָהּ בֵּין טֹוב וּבֵין רָע כְּעֶרְךְּךָ הַכֹּהֵן כֵּן יִהְיֶה׃  
But if he wishes to redeem it, he shall add a fifth to the valuation. וְאִם־גָּאֹל יִגְאָלֶנָּה וְיָסַף חֲמִישִׁתֹו עַל־עֶרְךֶּךָ׃  
"When a man dedicates his house to be holy to the LORD, the priest shall value it as either good or bad; as the priest values it, so it shall stand. וְאִישׁ כִּי־יַקְדִּשׁ אֶת־בֵּיתֹו קֹדֶשׁ לַיהוָה וְהֶעֱרִיכֹו הַכֹּהֵן בֵּין טֹוב וּבֵין רָע כַּאֲשֶׁר יַעֲרִיךְ אֹתֹו הַכֹּהֵן כֵּן יָקוּם׃  
And if he who dedicates it wishes to redeem his house, he shall add a fifth of the valuation in money to it, and it shall be his. וְאִם־הַמַּקְדִּישׁ יִגְאַל אֶת־בֵּיתֹו וְיָסַף חֲמִישִׁית כֶּסֶף־עֶרְךְּךָ עָלָיו וְהָיָה לֹו׃  
"If a man dedicates to the LORD part of the land which is his by inheritance, then your valuation shall be according to the seed for it; a sowing of a homer of barley shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver. וְאִם מִשְּׂדֵה אֲחֻזָּתֹו יַקְדִּישׁ אִישׁ לַיהוָה וְהָיָה עֶרְךְּךָ לְפִי זַרְעֹו זֶרַע חֹמֶר שְׂעֹרִים בַּחֲמִשִּׁים שֶׁקֶל כָּסֶף׃  
If he dedicates his field from the year of jubilee, it shall stand at your full valuation; אִם־מִשְּׁנַת הַיֹּבֵל יַקְדִּישׁ שָׂדֵהוּ כְּעֶרְךְּךָ יָקוּם׃  
but if he dedicates his field after the jubilee, then the priest shall compute the money-value for it according to the years that remain until the year of jubilee, and a deduction shall be made from your valuation. וְאִם־אַחַר הַיֹּבֵל יַקְדִּישׁ שָׂדֵהוּ וְחִשַּׁב־לֹו הַכֹּהֵן אֶת־הַכֶּסֶף עַל־פִּי הַשָּׁנִים הַנֹּותָרֹת עַד שְׁנַת הַיֹּבֵל וְנִגְרַע מֵעֶרְךֶּךָ׃  
And if he who dedicates the field wishes to redeem it, then he shall add a fifth of the valuation in money to it, and it shall remain his. וְאִם־גָּאֹל יִגְאַל אֶת־הַשָּׂדֶה הַמַּקְדִּישׁ אֹתֹו וְיָסַף חֲמִשִׁית כֶּסֶף־עֶרְךְּךָ עָלָיו וְקָם לֹו׃  
But if he does not wish to redeem the field, or if he has sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed any more; וְאִם־לֹא יִגְאַל אֶת־הַשָּׂדֶה וְאִם־מָכַר אֶת־הַשָּׂדֶה לְאִישׁ אַחֵר לֹא יִגָּאֵל עֹוד׃  
but the field, when it is released in the jubilee, shall be holy to the LORD, as a field that has been devoted; the priest shall be in possession of it. וְהָיָה הַשָּׂדֶה בְּצֵאתֹו בַיֹּבֵל קֹדֶשׁ לַיהוָה כִּשְׂדֵה הַחֵרֶם לַכֹּהֵן תִּהְיֶה אֲחֻזָּתֹו׃  
If he dedicates to the LORD a field which he has bought, which is not a part of his possession by inheritance, וְאִם אֶת־שְׂדֵה מִקְנָתֹו אֲשֶׁר לֹא מִשְּׂדֵה אֲחֻזָּתֹו יַקְדִּישׁ לַיהוָה׃  
then the priest shall compute the valuation for it up to the year of jubilee, and the man shall give the amount of the valuation on that day as a holy thing to the LORD. וְחִשַּׁב־לֹו הַכֹּהֵן אֵת מִכְסַת הָעֶרְךְּךָ עַד שְׁנַת הַיֹּבֵל וְנָתַן אֶת־הָעֶרְךְּךָ בַּיֹּום הַהוּא קֹדֶשׁ לַיהוָה׃  
In the year of jubilee the field shall return to him from whom it was bought, to whom the land belongs as a possession by inheritance. בִּשְׁנַת הַיֹּובֵל יָשׁוּב הַשָּׂדֶה לַאֲשֶׁר קָנָהוּ מֵאִתֹּו לַאֲשֶׁר־לֹו אֲחֻזַּת הָאָרֶץ׃  
Every valuation shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall make a shekel. וְכָל־עֶרְךְּךָ יִהְיֶה בְּשֶׁקֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ עֶשְׂרִים גֵּרָה יִהְיֶה הַשָּׁקֶל׃ ס  
"But a firstling of animals, which as a firstling belongs to the LORD, no man may dedicate; whether ox or sheep, it is the LORD's. אַךְ־בְּכֹור אֲשֶׁר־יְבֻכַּר לַיהוָה בִּבְהֵמָה לֹא־יַקְדִּישׁ אִישׁ אֹתֹו אִם־שֹׁור אִם־שֶׂה לַיהוָה הוּא׃  
And if it is an unclean animal, then he shall buy it back at your valuation, and add a fifth to it; or, if it is not redeemed, it shall be sold at your valuation. וְאִם בַּבְּהֵמָה הַטְּמֵאָה וּפָדָה בְעֶרְךֶּךָ וְיָסַף חֲמִשִׁתֹו עָלָיו וְאִם־לֹא יִגָּאֵל וְנִמְכַּר בְּעֶרְךֶּךָ׃  
"But no devoted thing that a man devotes to the LORD, of anything that he has, whether of man or beast, or of his inherited field, shall be sold or redeemed; every devoted thing is most holy to the LORD. אַךְ־כָּל־חֵרֶם אֲשֶׁר יַחֲרִם אִישׁ לַיהוָה מִכָּל־אֲשֶׁר־לֹו מֵאָדָם וּבְהֵמָה וּמִשְּׂדֵה אֲחֻזָּתֹו לֹא יִמָּכֵר וְלֹא יִגָּאֵל כָּל־חֵרֶם קֹדֶשׁ־קָדָשִׁים הוּא לַיהוָה׃  
No one devoted, who is to be utterly destroyed from among men, shall be ransomed; he shall be put to death. כָּל־חֵרֶם אֲשֶׁר יָחֳרַם מִן־הָאָדָם לֹא יִפָּדֶה מֹות יוּמָת׃  
"All the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the trees, is the LORD's; it is holy to the LORD. וְכָל־מַעְשַׂר הָאָרֶץ מִזֶּרַע הָאָרֶץ מִפְּרִי הָעֵץ לַיהוָה הוּא קֹדֶשׁ לַיהוָה׃  
If a man wishes to redeem any of his tithe, he shall add a fifth to it. וְאִם־גָּאֹל יִגְאַל אִישׁ מִמַּעַשְׂרֹו חֲמִשִׁיתֹו יֹסֵף עָלָיו׃  
And all the tithe of herds and flocks, every tenth animal of all that pass under the herdsman's staff, shall be holy to the LORD. וְכָל־מַעְשַׂר בָּקָר וָצֹאן כֹּל אֲשֶׁר־יַעֲבֹר תַּחַת הַשָּׁבֶט הָעֲשִׂירִי יִהְיֶה־קֹּדֶשׁ לַיהוָה׃  
A man shall not inquire whether it is good or bad, neither shall he exchange it; and if he exchanges it, then both it and that for which it is exchanged shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed." לֹא יְבַקֵּר בֵּין־טֹוב לָרַע וְלֹא יְמִירֶנּוּ וְאִם־הָמֵר יְמִירֶנּוּ וְהָיָה־הוּא וּתְמוּרָתֹו יִהְיֶה־קֹדֶשׁ לֹא יִגָּאֵל׃  
These are the commandments which the LORD commanded Moses for the people of Israel on Mount Sinai. אֵלֶּה הַמִּצְוֹת אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה אֶל־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּהַר סִינָי׃
