    Exodus

    101Now these are the names of the sons of Israel, who came into Egypt (every man and his household came with Jacob):
    102Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,
    103Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,
    104Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher.
    105All the souls who came out of Jacob's body were seventy souls, and Joseph was in Egypt already.
    106Joseph died, as did all his brothers, and all that generation.
    107The children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and grew exceedingly mighty; and the land was filled with them.
    108Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who didn't know Joseph.
    109He said to his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we.
    110Come, let's deal wisely with them, lest they multiply, and it happen that when any war breaks out, they also join themselves to our enemies and fight against us, and escape out of the land.
    111Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with their burdens. They built storage cities for Pharaoh: Pithom and Raamses.
    112But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and the more they spread out. They started to dread the children of Israel.
    113The Egyptians ruthlessly made the children of Israel serve,
    114and they made their lives bitter with hard service in mortar and in brick, and in all kinds of service in the field, all their service, in which they ruthlessly made them serve.
    115The king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, of whom the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah,
    116and he said, When you perform the duty of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them on the birth stool, if it is a son, then you shall kill him; but if it is a daughter, then she shall live.
    117But the midwives feared God,' and didn't do what the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the baby boys alive.
    118The king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said to them, Why have you done this thing and saved the boys alive?
    119The midwives said to Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women aren't like the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife comes to them.
    120God dealt well with the midwives, and the people multiplied, and grew very mighty.
    121Because the midwives feared God, he gave them families.
    122Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, You shall cast every son who is born into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive.
    201A man of the house of Levi went and took a daughter of Levi as his wife.
    202The woman conceived and bore a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months.
    203When she could no longer hide him, she took a papyrus basket for him, and coated it with tar and with pitch. She put the child in it, and laid it in the reeds by the river's bank.
    204His sister stood far off, to see what would be done to him.
    205Pharaoh's daughter came down to bathe at the river. Her maidens walked along by the riverside. She saw the basket among the reeds, and sent her servant to get it.
    206She opened it, and saw the child, and behold, the baby cried. She had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children.
    207Then his sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, Should I go and call a nurse for you from the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for you?
    208Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. The young woman went and called the child's mother.
    209Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Take this child away, and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages. The woman took the child, and nursed it.
    210The child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. She named him Moses, and said, Because I drew him out of the water.
    211In those days, when Moses had grown up, he went out to his brothers and saw their burdens. He saw an Egyptian striking a Hebrew, one of his brothers.
    212He looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no one, he killed the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.
    213He went out the second day, and behold, two men of the Hebrews were fighting with each other. He said to him who did the wrong, Why do you strike your fellow?
    214He said, Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you plan to kill me, as you killed the Egyptian? Moses was afraid, and said, Surely this thing is known.
    215Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and lived in the land of Midian, and he sat down by a well.
    216Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters. They came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.
    217The shepherds came and drove them away; but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.
    218When they came to Reuel, their father, he said, How is it that you have returned so early today?
    219They said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and moreover he drew water for us, and watered the flock.
    220He said to his daughters, Where is he? Why is it that you have left the man? Call him, that he may eat bread.
    221Moses was content to dwell with the man. He gave Moses Zipporah, his daughter.
    222She bore a son, and he named him Gershom,' for he said, I have lived as a foreigner in a foreign land.
    223In the course of those many days, the king of Egypt died, and the children of Israel sighed because of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up to God because of the bondage.
    224God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
    225God saw the children of Israel, and God understood.
    301Now Moses was keeping the flock of Jethro, his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the back of the wilderness, and came to God's mountain, to Horeb.
    302Yahweh's angel appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the middle of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
    303Moses said, I will go now, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.
    304When Yahweh saw that he came over to see, God called to him out of the middle of the bush, and said, Moses! Moses! He said, Here I am.
    305He said, Don't come close. Take off your sandals, for the place you are standing on is holy ground.
    306Moreover he said, I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Moses hid his face because he was afraid to look at God.
    307Yahweh said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.
    308I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey; to the place of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
    309Now, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to me. Moreover I have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them.
    310Come now therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh, that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.
    311Moses said to God, Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?
    312He said, Certainly I will be with you. This will be the token to you, that I have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.
    313Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the children of Israel, and tell them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' what should I tell them?
    314God said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM, and he said, You shall tell the children of Israel this: 'I AM has sent me to you.'
    315God said moreover to Moses, You shall tell the children of Israel this, 'Yahweh, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.' This is my name forever, and this is my memorial to all generations.
    316Go and gather the elders of Israel together, and tell them, 'Yahweh, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has appeared to me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt.
    317I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, to a land flowing with milk and honey. '
    318They will listen to your voice. You shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt, and you shall tell him, 'Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, has met with us. Now please let us go three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to Yahweh, our God.'
    319I know that the king of Egypt won't give you permission to go, no, not by a mighty hand.
    320I will reach out my hand and strike Egypt with all my wonders which I will do among them, and after that he will let you go.
    321I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, and it will happen that when you go, you shall not go empty-handed.
    322But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, and of her who visits her house, jewels of silver, jewels of gold, and clothing. You shall put them on your sons, and on your daughters. You shall plunder the Egyptians.
    401Moses answered, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor listen to my voice; for they will say, 'Yahweh has not appeared to you.'
    402Yahweh said to him, What is that in your hand? He said, A rod.
    403He said, Throw it on the ground. He threw it on the ground, and it became a snake; and Moses ran away from it.
    404Yahweh said to Moses, Stretch out your hand, and take it by the tail. He stretched out his hand, and took hold of it, and it became a rod in his hand.
    405This is so that they may believe that Yahweh, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you.
    406Yahweh said furthermore to him, Now put your hand inside your cloak. He put his hand inside his cloak, and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous, as white as snow.
    407He said, Put your hand inside your cloak again. He put his hand inside his cloak again, and when he took it out of his cloak, behold, it had turned again as his other flesh.
    408It will happen, if they will not believe you or listen to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign.
    409It will happen, if they will not believe even these two signs or listen to your voice, that you shall take of the water of the river, and pour it on the dry land. The water which you take out of the river will become blood on the dry land.
    410Moses said to Yahweh, O Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before now, nor since you have spoken to your servant; for I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.
    411Yahweh said to him, Who made man's mouth? Or who makes one mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Isn't it I, Yahweh?
    412Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth, and teach you what you shall speak.
    413Moses said, Oh, Lord, please send someone else.
    414Yahweh's anger burned against Moses, and he said, What about Aaron, your brother, the Levite? I know that he can speak well. Also, behold, he is coming out to meet you. When he sees you, he will be glad in his heart.
    415You shall speak to him, and put the words in his mouth. I will be with your mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what you shall do.
    416He will be your spokesman to the people. It will happen that he will be to you a mouth, and you will be to him as God.
    417You shall take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do the signs.
    418Moses went and returned to Jethro his father-in-law, and said to him, Please let me go and return to my brothers who are in Egypt, and see whether they are still alive. Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.
    419Yahweh said to Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt; for all the men who sought your life are dead.
    420Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them on a donkey, and he returned to the land of Egypt. Moses took God's rod in his hand.
    421Yahweh said to Moses, When you go back into Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have put in your hand, but I will harden his heart and he will not let the people go.
    422You shall tell Pharaoh, 'Yahweh says, Israel is my son, my firstborn,
    423and I have said to you, Let my son go, that he may serve me; and you have refused to let him go. Behold, I will kill your firstborn son.'
    424On the way at a lodging place, Yahweh met Moses and wanted to kill him.
    425Then Zipporah took a flint, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet; and she said, Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me.
    426So he let him alone. Then she said, You are a bridegroom of blood, because of the circumcision.
    427Yahweh said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet Moses. He went, and met him on God's mountain, and kissed him.
    428Moses told Aaron all Yahweh's words with which he had sent him, and all the signs with which he had instructed him.
    429Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel.
    430Aaron spoke all the words which Yahweh had spoken to Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.
    431The people believed, and when they heard that Yahweh had visited the children of Israel, and that he had seen their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshiped.
    501Afterward Moses and Aaron came, and said to Pharaoh, This is what Yahweh, the God of Israel, says, 'Let my people go, that they may hold a feast to me in the wilderness.'
    502Pharaoh said, Who is Yahweh, that I should listen to his voice to let Israel go? I don't know Yahweh, and moreover I will not let Israel go.
    503They said, The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Please let us go three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to Yahweh, our God, lest he fall on us with pestilence, or with the sword.
    504The king of Egypt said to them, Why do you, Moses and Aaron, take the people from their work? Get back to your burdens!
    505Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land are now many, and you make them rest from their burdens.
    506The same day Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people and their officers, saying,
    507You shall no longer give the people straw to make brick, as before. Let them go and gather straw for themselves.
    508You shall require from them the number of the bricks which they made before. You shall not diminish anything of it, for they are idle. Therefore they cry, saying, 'Let's go and sacrifice to our God.'
    509Let heavier work be laid on the men, that they may labor in it. Don't let them pay any attention to lying words.
    510The taskmasters of the people went out with their officers, and they spoke to the people, saying, This is what Pharaoh says: 'I will not give you straw.
    511Go yourselves, get straw where you can find it, for nothing of your work shall be diminished.'
    512So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble for straw.
    513The taskmasters were urgent saying, Fulfill your work quota daily, as when there was straw!
    514The officers of the children of Israel, whom Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and were asked, Why haven't you fulfilled your quota both yesterday and today, in making brick as before?
    515Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried to Pharaoh, saying, Why do you deal this way with your servants?
    516No straw is given to your servants, and they tell us, 'Make brick!' and behold, your servants are beaten; but the fault is in your own people.
    517But Pharaoh said, You are idle! You are idle! Therefore you say, 'Let's go and sacrifice to Yahweh.'
    518Go therefore now, and work; for no straw shall be given to you; yet you shall deliver the same number of bricks!
    519The officers of the children of Israel saw that they were in trouble when it was said, You shall not diminish anything from your daily quota of bricks!
    520They met Moses and Aaron, who stood along the way, as they came out from Pharaoh.
    521They said to them, May Yahweh look at you and judge, because you have made us a stench to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to kill us!
    522Moses returned to Yahweh, and said, Lord, why have you brought trouble on this people? Why is it that you have sent me?
    523For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has brought trouble on this people. You have not rescued your people at all!
    601Yahweh said to Moses, Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh, for by a strong hand he shall let them go, and by a strong hand he shall drive them out of his land.
    602God spoke to Moses, and said to him, I am Yahweh.
    603I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty; but by my name Yahweh I was not known to them.
    604I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their travels, in which they lived as aliens.
    605Moreover I have heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered my covenant.
    606Therefore tell the children of Israel, 'I am Yahweh, 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 an outstretched arm, and with great judgments.
    607I will take you to myself for a people. I will be your God; and you shall know that I am Yahweh your God, who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
    608I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it to you for a heritage: I am Yahweh.'
    609Moses spoke so to the children of Israel, but they didn't listen to Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.
    610Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    611Go in, speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.
    612Moses spoke before Yahweh, saying, Behold, the children of Israel haven't listened to me. How then shall Pharaoh listen to me, when I have uncircumcised lips?
    613Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, and gave them a command to the children of Israel, and to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
    614These are the heads of their fathers' houses. The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel: Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi; these are the families of Reuben.
    615The sons of Simeon: Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanite woman; these are the families of Simeon.
    616These 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 one hundred thirty-seven years.
    617The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei, according to their families.
    618The sons of Kohath: Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel; and the years of the life of Kohath were one hundred thirty-three years.
    619The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to their generations.
    620Amram took Jochebed his father's sister to himself as wife; and she bore him Aaron and Moses. The years of the life of Amram were one hundred thirty-seven years.
    621The sons of Izhar: Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri.
    622The sons of Uzziel: Mishael, Elzaphan, and Sithri.
    623Aaron took Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, as his wife; and she bore him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
    624The sons of Korah: Assir, Elkanah, and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korahites.
    625Eleazar Aaron's son took one of the daughters of Putiel as his wife; and she bore him Phinehas. These are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites according to their families.
    626These are that Aaron and Moses to whom Yahweh said, Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their armies.
    627These are those who spoke to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt. These are that Moses and Aaron.
    628On the day when Yahweh spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt,
    629Yahweh said to Moses, I am Yahweh. Tell Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I tell you.
    630Moses said before Yahweh, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh listen to me?
    701Yahweh said to Moses, Behold, I have made you as God to Pharaoh; and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet.
    702You shall speak all that I command you; and Aaron your brother shall speak to Pharaoh, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.
    703I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.
    704But Pharaoh will not listen to you, so I will lay my hand on Egypt, and bring out my armies, my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.
    705The Egyptians shall know that I am Yahweh when I stretch out my hand on Egypt, and bring the children of Israel out from among them.
    706Moses and Aaron did so. As Yahweh commanded them, so they did.
    707Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty-three years old, when they spoke to Pharaoh.
    708Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
    709When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, 'Perform a miracle!' then you shall tell Aaron, 'Take your rod, and cast it down before Pharaoh, and it will become a serpent.'
    710Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and they did so, as Yahweh had commanded. Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent.
    711Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the sorcerers. They also, the magicians of Egypt, did the same thing with their enchantments.
    712For they each cast down their rods, and they became serpents; but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.
    713Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he didn't listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken.
    714Yahweh said to Moses, Pharaoh's heart is stubborn. He refuses to let the people go.
    715Go to Pharaoh in the morning. Behold, he is going out to the water. You shall stand by the river's bank to meet him. You shall take the rod which was turned to a serpent in your hand.
    716You shall tell him, 'Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to you, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness. Behold, until now you haven't listened.
    717Yahweh says, In this you shall know that I am Yahweh. Behold: I will strike with the rod that is in my hand on the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.
    718The fish that are in the river will die and the river will become foul. The Egyptians will loathe to drink water from the river. '
    719Yahweh said to Moses, Tell Aaron, 'Take your rod, and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, over their streams, and over their pools, and over all their ponds of water, that they may become blood. There will be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.'
    720Moses and Aaron did so, as Yahweh commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and struck 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.
    721The fish that were in the river died. The river became foul. The Egyptians couldn't drink water from the river. The blood was throughout all the land of Egypt.
    722The magicians of Egypt did the same thing with their enchantments. So Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he didn't listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken.
    723Pharaoh turned and went into his house, and he didn't even take this to heart.
    724All the Egyptians dug around the river for water to drink; for they couldn't drink the river water.
    725Seven days were fulfilled, after Yahweh had struck the river.
    801Yahweh spoke to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh, and tell him, 'This is what Yahweh says, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
    802If you refuse to let them go, behold, I will plague all your borders with frogs.
    803The river will swarm with frogs, which will go up and come into your house, and into your bedroom, and on your bed, and into the house of your servants, and on your people, and into your ovens, and into your kneading troughs.
    804The frogs shall come up both on you, and on your people, and on all your servants. '
    805Yahweh said to Moses, Tell Aaron, 'Stretch out your hand with your rod over the rivers, over the streams, and over the pools, and cause frogs to come up on the land of Egypt.'
    806Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.
    807The magicians did the same thing with their enchantments, and brought up frogs on the land of Egypt.
    808Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Entreat Yahweh, that he take away the frogs from me and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may sacrifice to Yahweh.
    809Moses said to Pharaoh, I give you the honor of setting the time that I should pray for you, and for your servants, and for your people, that the frogs be destroyed from you and your houses, and remain in the river only.
    810Pharaoh said, Tomorrow. Moses said, Let it be according to your word, that you may know that there is no one like Yahweh our God.
    811The frogs shall depart from you, and from your houses, and from your servants, and from your people. They shall remain in the river only.
    812Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh, and Moses cried to Yahweh concerning the frogs which he had brought on Pharaoh.
    813Yahweh did according to the word of Moses, and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the courts, and out of the fields.
    814They gathered them together in heaps, and the land stank.
    815But when Pharaoh saw that there was a respite, he hardened his heart, and didn't listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken.
    816Yahweh said to Moses, Tell Aaron, 'Stretch out your rod, and strike the dust of the earth, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.'
    817They did so; and Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and struck the dust of the earth, and there were lice on man, and on animal; all the dust of the earth became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
    818The magicians tried with their enchantments to produce lice, but they couldn't. There were lice on man, and on animal.
    819Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, This is God's finger; but Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he didn't listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken.
    820Yahweh said to Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; behold, he comes out to the water; and tell him, 'This is what Yahweh says, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
    821Else, 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. The houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground they are on.
    822I will set apart 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 Yahweh on the earth.
    823I will put a division between my people and your people. This sign shall happen by tomorrow. '
    824Yahweh did so; and there came grievous swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses. In all the land of Egypt the land was corrupted by reason of the swarms of flies.
    825Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go, sacrifice to your God in the land!
    826Moses said, It isn't appropriate to do so; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to Yahweh our God. Behold, if we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, won't they stone us?
    827We will go three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to Yahweh our God, as he shall command us.
    828Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that you may sacrifice to Yahweh your God in the wilderness, only you shall not go very far away. Pray for me.
    829Moses said, Behold, I am going out from you. I will pray to Yahweh that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, tomorrow; only don't let Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to Yahweh.
    830Moses went out from Pharaoh, and prayed to Yahweh.
    831Yahweh 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.
    832Pharaoh hardened his heart this time also, and he didn't let the people go.
    901Then Yahweh said to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh, and tell him, 'This is what Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go, that they may serve me.
    902For if you refuse to let them go, and hold them still,
    903behold, Yahweh's hand is on your livestock which are in the field, on the horses, on the donkeys, on the camels, on the herds, and on the flocks with a very grievous pestilence.
    904Yahweh will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt; and nothing shall die of all that belongs to the children of Israel. '
    905Yahweh appointed a set time, saying, Tomorrow Yahweh shall do this thing in the land.
    906Yahweh did that thing on the next day; and all the livestock of Egypt died, but of the livestock of the children of Israel, not one died.
    907Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not so much as one of the livestock of the Israelites dead. But the heart of Pharaoh was stubborn, and he didn't let the people go.
    908Yahweh said to Moses and to Aaron, Take handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the sky in the sight of Pharaoh.
    909It shall become small dust over all the land of Egypt, and shall be boils and blisters breaking out on man and on animal, throughout all the land of Egypt.
    910They took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward the sky; and it became boils and blisters breaking out on man and on animal.
    911The magicians couldn't stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boils were on the magicians and on all the Egyptians.
    912Yahweh hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he didn't listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken to Moses.
    913Yahweh said to Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and tell him, 'This is what Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go, that they may serve me.
    914For this time I will send all my plagues against your heart, against your officials, and against your people; that you may know that there is no one like me in all the earth.
    915For now I would have stretched out my hand, and struck you and your people with pestilence, and you would have been cut off from the earth;
    916but indeed for this cause I have made you stand: to show you my power, and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth,
    917because you still exalt yourself against my people, that you won't let them go.
    918Behold, tomorrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as has not been in Egypt since the day it was founded even until now.
    919Now therefore command that all of your livestock and all that you have in the field be brought into shelter. The hail will come down on every man and animal that is found in the field, and isn't brought home, and they will die. '
    920Those who feared Yahweh's word among the servants of Pharaoh made their servants and their livestock flee into the houses.
    921Whoever didn't respect Yahweh's word left his servants and his livestock in the field.
    922Yahweh said to Moses, Stretch out your hand toward the sky, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, on man, and on animal, and on every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.
    923Moses stretched out his rod toward the heavens, and Yahweh sent thunder and hail; and lightning flashed down to the earth. Yahweh rained hail on the land of Egypt.
    924So there was very severe hail, and lightning mixed with the hail, such as had not been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
    925The hail struck throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and animal; and the hail struck every herb of the field, and broke every tree of the field.
    926Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail.
    927Pharaoh sent and called for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, I have sinned this time. Yahweh is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
    928Pray to Yahweh; for there has been enough of mighty thunderings and hail. I will let you go, and you shall stay no longer.
    929Moses said to him, As soon as I have gone out of the city, I will spread out my hands to Yahweh. The thunders shall cease, and there will not be any more hail; that you may know that the earth is Yahweh's.
    930But as for you and your servants, I know that you don't yet fear Yahweh God.
    931The flax and the barley were struck, for the barley had ripened and the flax was blooming.
    932But the wheat and the spelt were not struck, for they had not grown up.
    933Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread out his hands to Yahweh; and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured on the earth.
    934When Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders had ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.
    935The heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he didn't let the children of Israel go, just as Yahweh had spoken through Moses.
    1001Yahweh said to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants, that I may show these my signs among them;
    1002and that you may tell in the hearing of your son, and of your son's son, what things I have done to Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that you may know that I am Yahweh.
    1003Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and said to him, This is what Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, says: 'How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go, that they may serve me.
    1004Or else, if you refuse to let my people go, behold, tomorrow I will bring locusts into your country,
    1005and they shall cover the surface of the earth, so that one won't be able to see the earth. They shall eat the residue of that which has escaped, which remains to you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which grows for you out of the field.
    1006Your houses shall be filled, and the houses of all your servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians, as neither your fathers nor your fathers' fathers have seen, since the day that they were on the earth to this day.' He turned, and went out from Pharaoh.
    1007Pharaoh's servants said to him, How long will this man be a snare to us? Let the men go, that they may serve Yahweh, their God. Don't you yet know that Egypt is destroyed?
    1008Moses and Aaron were brought again to Pharaoh, and he said to them, Go, serve Yahweh your God; but who are those who will go?
    1009Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old. We will go with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds; for we must hold a feast to Yahweh.
    1010He said to them, Yahweh be with you if I let you go with your little ones! See, evil is clearly before your faces.
    1011Not so! Go now you who are men, and serve Yahweh; for that is what you desire! Then they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.
    1012Yahweh 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.
    1013Moses stretched out his rod over the land of Egypt, and Yahweh brought an east wind on the land all that day, and all night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.
    1014The locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the borders of Egypt. They were very grievous. Before them there were no such locusts as they, nor will there ever be again.
    1015For they covered the surface of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened, and they ate every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left. There remained nothing green, either tree or herb of the field, through all the land of Egypt.
    1016Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste, and he said, I have sinned against Yahweh your God, and against you.
    1017Now therefore please forgive my sin again, and pray to Yahweh your God, that he may also take away from me this death.
    1018Moses went out from Pharaoh, and prayed to Yahweh.
    1019Yahweh sent an exceedingly strong west wind, which took up the locusts, and drove them into the Red Sea. There remained not one locust in all the borders of Egypt.
    1020But Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he didn't let the children of Israel go.
    1021Yahweh said to Moses, Stretch out your hand toward the sky, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.
    1022Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky, and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days.
    1023They didn't see one another, and nobody rose from his place for three days; but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
    1024Pharaoh called to Moses, and said, Go, serve Yahweh. Only let your flocks and your herds stay behind. Let your little ones also go with you.
    1025Moses said, You must also give into our hand sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice to Yahweh our God.
    1026Our livestock also shall go with us. Not a hoof shall be left behind, for of it we must take to serve Yahweh our God; and we don't know with what we must serve Yahweh, until we come there.
    1027But Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he wouldn't let them go.
    1028Pharaoh said to him, Get away from me! Be careful to see my face no more; for in the day you see my face you shall die!
    1029Moses said, You have spoken well. I will see your face again no more.
    1101Yahweh said to Moses, I will bring yet one more plague on Pharaoh, and on Egypt; afterwards he will let you go. When he lets you go, he will surely thrust you out altogether.
    1102Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man ask of his neighbor, and every woman of her neighbor, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold.
    1103Yahweh 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.
    1104Moses said, This is what Yahweh says: 'About midnight I will go out into the middle of Egypt,
    1105and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne, even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the mill, and all the firstborn of livestock.
    1106There will be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there has not been, nor will be any more.
    1107But against any of the children of Israel a dog won't even bark or move its tongue, against man or animal, that you may know that Yahweh makes a distinction between the Egyptians and Israel.
    1108All these servants of yours will come down to me, and bow down themselves to me, saying, Get out, with all the people who follow you; and after that I will go out.' He went out from Pharaoh in hot anger.
    1109Yahweh said to Moses, Pharaoh won't listen to you, that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.
    1110Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh, but Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he didn't let the children of Israel go out of his land.
    1201Yahweh spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
    1202This month shall be to you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year to you.
    1203Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, 'On the tenth day of this month, they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to their fathers' houses, a lamb for a household;
    1204and if the household is too little for a lamb, then he and his neighbor next to his house shall take one according to the number of the souls. You shall make your count for the lamb according to what everyone can eat.
    1205Your lamb shall be without defect, a male a year old. You shall take it from the sheep or from the goats.
    1206You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at evening.
    1207They shall take some of the blood, and put it on the two door posts and on the lintel, on the houses in which they shall eat it.
    1208They shall eat the meat in that night, roasted with fire, with unleavened bread. They shall eat it with bitter herbs.
    1209Don't eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted with fire; with its head, its legs and its inner parts.
    1210You shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; but that which remains of it until the morning you shall burn with fire.
    1211This is how you shall eat it: with your belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste: it is Yahweh's Passover.
    1212For I will go through the land of Egypt in that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and animal. I will execute judgments against all the gods of Egypt. I am Yahweh.
    1213The blood shall be to you for a token on the houses where you are. When I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague will be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.
    1214This day shall be a memorial for you. You shall keep it as a feast to Yahweh. You shall keep it as a feast throughout your generations by an ordinance forever.
    1215Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread; even the first day you shall put away yeast 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.
    1216In the first day there shall be to you a holy convocation, and in the seventh day a holy convocation; no kind of work shall be done in them, except that which every man must eat, only that may be done by you.
    1217You shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this same day I have brought your armies out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations by an ordinance forever.
    1218In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the twenty first day of the month at evening.
    1219There shall be no yeast found in your houses for seven days, for whoever eats that which is leavened, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is a foreigner, or one who is born in the land.
    1220You shall eat nothing leavened. In all your habitations you shall eat unleavened bread.'
    1221Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said to them, Draw out, and take lambs according to your families, and kill the Passover.
    1222You shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two door posts with the blood that is in the basin. None of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning.
    1223For Yahweh will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood on the lintel, and on the two door posts, Yahweh will pass over the door, and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to strike you.
    1224You shall observe this thing for an ordinance to you and to your sons forever.
    1225It shall happen when you have come to the land which Yahweh will give you, as he has promised, that you shall keep this service.
    1226It will happen, when your children ask you, 'What do you mean by this service?'
    1227that you shall say, 'It is the sacrifice of Yahweh's Passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he struck the Egyptians, and spared our houses.' The people bowed their heads and worshiped.
    1228The children of Israel went and did so; as Yahweh had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.
    1229At midnight, Yahweh struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of livestock.
    1230Pharaoh 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.
    1231He called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, get out from among my people, both you and the children of Israel; and go, serve Yahweh, as you have said!
    1232Take both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also!
    1233The Egyptians were urgent with the people, to send them out of the land in haste, for they said, We are all dead men.
    1234The people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading troughs being bound up in their clothes on their shoulders.
    1235The children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they asked of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and clothing.
    1236Yahweh gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have what they asked. They plundered the Egyptians.
    1237The children of Israel traveled from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot who were men, in addition to children.
    1238A mixed multitude went up also with them, with flocks, herds, and even very much livestock.
    1239They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought out of Egypt; for it wasn't leavened, because they were thrust out of Egypt, and couldn't wait, and they had not prepared any food for themselves.
    1240Now the time that the children of Israel lived in Egypt was four hundred thirty years.
    1241At the end of four hundred thirty years, to the day, all of Yahweh's armies went out from the land of Egypt.
    1242It is a night to be much observed to Yahweh for bringing them out from the land of Egypt. This is that night of Yahweh, to be much observed by all the children of Israel throughout their generations.
    1243Yahweh said to Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance of the Passover. No foreigner shall eat of it,
    1244but every man's servant who is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then shall he eat of it.
    1245A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat of it.
    1246It must be eaten in one house. You shall not carry any of the meat outside of the house. Do not break any of its bones.
    1247All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.
    1248When a stranger lives as a foreigner with you, and would like to keep the Passover to Yahweh, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it. He shall be as one who is born in the land; but no uncircumcised person shall eat of it.
    1249One law shall be to him who is born at home, and to the stranger who lives as a foreigner among you.
    1250All the children of Israel did so. As Yahweh commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.
    1251That same day, Yahweh brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.
    1301Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    1302Sanctify to me all the firstborn, whatever opens the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of animal. It is mine.
    1303Moses said to the people, Remember this day, in which you came out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand Yahweh brought you out from this place. No leavened bread shall be eaten.
    1304Today you go out in the month Abib.
    1305It shall be, when Yahweh brings you into the land of the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Amorite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, 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.
    1306Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to Yahweh.
    1307Unleavened bread shall be eaten throughout the seven days; and no leavened bread shall be seen with you. No yeast shall be seen with you, within all your borders.
    1308You shall tell your son in that day, saying, 'It is because of that which Yahweh did for me when I came out of Egypt.'
    1309It shall be for a sign to you on your hand, and for a memorial between your eyes, that Yahweh's law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand Yahweh has brought you out of Egypt.
    1310You shall therefore keep this ordinance in its season from year to year.
    1311It shall be, when Yahweh brings you into the land of the Canaanite, as he swore to you and to your fathers, and will give it you,
    1312that you shall set apart to Yahweh all that opens the womb, and every firstborn that comes from an animal which you have. The males shall be Yahweh's.
    1313Every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; and if you will not redeem it, then you shall break its neck; and you shall redeem all the firstborn of man among your sons.
    1314It shall be, when your son asks you in time to come, saying, 'What is this?' that you shall tell him, 'By strength of hand Yahweh brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage.
    1315When Pharaoh stubbornly refused to let us go, Yahweh killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of livestock. Therefore I sacrifice to Yahweh all that opens the womb, being males; but all the firstborn of my sons I redeem.'
    1316It shall be for a sign on your hand, and for symbols between your eyes; for by strength of hand Yahweh brought us out of Egypt.
    1317When Pharaoh had let the people go, God didn't lead them by the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and they return to Egypt;
    1318but God led the people around by the way of the wilderness by the Red Sea; and the children of Israel went up armed out of the land of Egypt.
    1319Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for he had made the children of Israel swear, saying, God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones away from here with you.
    1320They took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness.
    1321Yahweh went before them by day in a pillar of cloud, to lead them on their way, and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light, that they might go by day and by night:
    1322the pillar of cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night, didn't depart from before the people.
    1401Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    1402Speak to the children of Israel, that they turn back and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, before Baal Zephon. You shall encamp opposite it by the sea.
    1403Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, 'They are entangled in the land. The wilderness has shut them in.'
    1404I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will follow after them; and I will get honor over Pharaoh, and over all his armies; and the Egyptians shall know that I am Yahweh. They did so.
    1405The king of Egypt was told that the people had fled; and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was changed toward the people, and they said, What is this we have done, that we have let Israel go from serving us?
    1406He prepared his chariot, and took his army with him;
    1407and he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, with captains over all of them.
    1408Yahweh hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued the children of Israel; for the children of Israel went out with a high hand.
    1409The Egyptians pursued them. All the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, his horsemen, and his army overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baal Zephon.
    1410When Pharaoh came near, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them; and they were very afraid. The children of Israel cried out to Yahweh.
    1411They said to Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you treated us this way, to bring us out of Egypt?
    1412Isn't this the word that we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, 'Leave us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians?' For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.
    1413Moses said to the people, Don't be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of Yahweh, which he will work for you today; for you will never again see the Egyptians whom you have seen today.
    1414Yahweh will fight for you, and you shall be still.
    1415Yahweh said to Moses, Why do you cry to me? Speak to the children of Israel, that they go forward.
    1416Lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. Then the children of Israel shall go into the middle of the sea on dry ground.
    1417Behold, I myself will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they will go in after them. I will get myself honor over Pharaoh, and over all his armies, over his chariots, and over his horsemen.
    1418The Egyptians shall know that I am Yahweh when I have gotten myself honor over Pharaoh, over his chariots, and over his horsemen.
    1419The angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud moved from before them, and stood behind them.
    1420It came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel. There was the cloud and the darkness, yet it gave light by night. One didn't come near the other all night.
    1421Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and Yahweh caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
    1422The 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.
    1423The Egyptians pursued, and went in after them into the middle of the sea: all of Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.
    1424In the morning watch, Yahweh looked out on the Egyptian army through the pillar of fire and of cloud, and confused the Egyptian army.
    1425He took off their chariot wheels, and they drove them heavily; so that the Egyptians said, Let's flee from the face of Israel, for Yahweh fights for them against the Egyptians!
    1426Yahweh 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.
    1427Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it. Yahweh overthrew the Egyptians in the middle of the sea.
    1428The waters returned, and covered the chariots and the horsemen, even all Pharaoh's army that went in after them into the sea. There remained not so much as one of them.
    1429But 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.
    1430Thus Yahweh saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore.
    1431Israel saw the great work which Yahweh did to the Egyptians, and the people feared Yahweh; and they believed in Yahweh and in his servant Moses.
    1501Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to Yahweh, and said, I will sing to Yahweh, for he has triumphed gloriously. He has thrown the horse and his rider into the sea.
    1502Yah is my strength and song. He has become my salvation. This is my God, and I will praise him; my father's God, and I will exalt him.
    1503Yahweh is a man of war. Yahweh is his name.
    1504He has cast Pharaoh's chariots and his army into the sea. His chosen captains are sunk in the Red Sea.
    1505The deeps cover them. They went down into the depths like a stone.
    1506Your right hand, Yahweh, is glorious in power. Your right hand, Yahweh, dashes the enemy in pieces.
    1507In the greatness of your excellency, you overthrow those who rise up against you. You send out your wrath. It consumes them as stubble.
    1508With the blast of your nostrils, the waters were piled up. The floods stood upright as a heap. The deeps were congealed in the heart of the sea.
    1509The enemy said, 'I will pursue. I will overtake. I will divide the plunder. My desire will be satisfied on them. I will draw my sword. My hand will destroy them.'
    1510You blew with your wind. The sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.
    1511Who is like you, Yahweh, among the gods? Who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
    1512You stretched out your right hand. The earth swallowed them.
    1513You, in your loving kindness, have led the people that you have redeemed. You have guided them in your strength to your holy habitation.
    1514The peoples have heard. They tremble. Pangs have taken hold of the inhabitants of Philistia.
    1515Then the chiefs of Edom were dismayed. Trembling takes hold of the mighty men of Moab. All the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.
    1516Terror and dread falls on them. By the greatness of your arm they are as still as a stone, until your people pass over, Yahweh, until the people you have purchased pass over.
    1517You will bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, the place, Yahweh, which you have made for yourself to dwell in: the sanctuary, Lord, which your hands have established.
    1518Yahweh will reign forever and ever.
    1519For the horses of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and Yahweh brought back the waters of the sea on them; but the children of Israel walked on dry land in the middle of the sea.
    1520Miriam 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.
    1521Miriam answered them, Sing to Yahweh, for he has triumphed gloriously. He has thrown the horse and his rider into the sea.
    1522Moses led Israel onward 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.
    1523When they came to Marah, they couldn't drink from the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore its name was called Marah.
    1524The people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
    1525Then he cried to Yahweh. Yahweh showed him a tree, and he threw it into the waters, and the waters were made sweet. There he made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there he tested them.
    1526He said, If you will diligently listen to Yahweh your God's voice, and will do that which is right in his eyes, and will pay attention to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I am Yahweh who heals you.
    1527They came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees. They encamped there by the waters.
    1601They 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.
    1602The whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron in the wilderness;
    1603and the children of Israel said to them, We wish that we had died by Yahweh's hand in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the meat pots, when we ate our fill of bread, for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.
    1604Then Yahweh said to Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from the sky for you, and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in my law or not.
    1605It shall come to pass on the sixth day, that they shall prepare that which they bring in, and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.
    1606Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, At evening, you shall know that Yahweh has brought you out from the land of Egypt.
    1607In the morning, you shall see Yahweh's glory; because he hears your murmurings against Yahweh. Who are we, that you murmur against us?
    1608Moses said, Now Yahweh will give you meat to eat in the evening, and in the morning bread to satisfy you, because Yahweh hears your murmurings which you murmur against him. And who are we? Your murmurings are not against us, but against Yahweh.
    1609Moses said to Aaron, Tell all the congregation of the children of Israel, 'Come close to Yahweh, for he has heard your murmurings.'
    1610As Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, Yahweh's glory appeared in the cloud.
    1611Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    1612I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, 'At evening you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread. Then you will know that I am Yahweh your God.'
    1613In the evening, quail came up and covered the camp; and in the morning the dew lay around the camp.
    1614When the dew that lay had gone, behold, on the surface of the wilderness was a small round thing, small as the frost on the ground.
    1615When the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, What is it? For they didn't know what it was. Moses said to them, It is the bread which Yahweh has given you to eat.
    1616This is the thing which Yahweh has commanded: 'Gather of it everyone according to his eating; an omer a head, according to the number of your persons, you shall take it, every man for those who are in his tent.'
    1617The children of Israel did so, and some gathered more, some less.
    1618When they measured it with an omer, he who gathered much had nothing over, and he who gathered little had no lack. They each gathered according to his eating.
    1619Moses said to them, Let no one leave of it until the morning.
    1620Notwithstanding they didn't listen to Moses, but some of them left of it until the morning, so it bred worms and became foul; and Moses was angry with them.
    1621They gathered it morning by morning, everyone according to his eating. When the sun grew hot, it melted.
    1622On the sixth day, they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one; and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.
    1623He said to them, This is that which Yahweh has spoken, 'Tomorrow is a solemn rest, a holy Sabbath to Yahweh. Bake that which you want to bake, and boil that which you want to boil; and all that remains over lay up for yourselves to be kept until the morning.'
    1624They laid it up until the morning, as Moses ordered, and it didn't become foul, and there were no worms in it.
    1625Moses said, Eat that today, for today is a Sabbath to Yahweh. Today you shall not find it in the field.
    1626Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day is the Sabbath. In it there shall be none.
    1627On the seventh day, some of the people went out to gather, and they found none.
    1628Yahweh said to Moses, How long do you refuse to keep my commandments and my laws?
    1629Behold, because Yahweh has given you the Sabbath, therefore he gives you on the sixth day the bread of two days. Everyone stay in his place. Let no one go out of his place on the seventh day.
    1630So the people rested on the seventh day.
    1631The house of Israel called its name Manna,' and it was like coriander seed, white; and its taste was like wafers with honey.
    1632Moses said, This is the thing which Yahweh has commanded, 'Let an omer-full of it be kept throughout your generations, that they may see the bread with which I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you out of the land of Egypt.'
    1633Moses said to Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer-full of manna in it, and lay it up before Yahweh, to be kept throughout your generations.
    1634As Yahweh commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.
    1635The children of Israel ate the manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land. They ate the manna until they came to the borders of the land of Canaan.
    1636Now an omer is one tenth of an ephah.
    1701All the congregation of the children of Israel traveled from the wilderness of Sin, starting according to Yahweh's commandment, and encamped in Rephidim; but there was no water for the people to drink.
    1702Therefore the people quarreled with Moses, and said, Give us water to drink. Moses said to them, Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you test Yahweh?
    1703The people were thirsty for water there; so the people murmured against Moses, and said, Why have you brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us, our children, and our livestock with thirst?
    1704Moses cried to Yahweh, saying, What shall I do with these people? They are almost ready to stone me.
    1705Yahweh said to Moses, Walk on before the people, and take the elders of Israel with you, and take the rod in your hand with which you struck the Nile, and go.
    1706Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb. You shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink. Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
    1707He called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah,' because the children of Israel quarreled, and because they tested Yahweh, saying, Is Yahweh among us, or not?
    1708Then Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim.
    1709Moses said to Joshua, Choose men for us, and go out to fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with God's rod in my hand.
    1710So Joshua did as Moses had told him, and fought with Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
    1711When Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed. When he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
    1712But Moses' hands were heavy; so they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side. His hands were steady until sunset.
    1713Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
    1714Yahweh said to Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: that I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under the sky.
    1715Moses built an altar, and called its name Yahweh our Banner.
    1716He said, Yah has sworn: 'Yahweh will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.'
    1801Now Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father-in-law, heard of all that God had done for Moses and for Israel his people, how Yahweh had brought Israel out of Egypt.
    1802Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, received Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her away,
    1803and her two sons. The name of one son was Gershom, for Moses said, I have lived as a foreigner in a foreign land.
    1804The name of the other was Eliezer,' for he said, My father's God was my help and delivered me from Pharaoh's sword.
    1805Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, came with Moses' sons and his wife to Moses into the wilderness where he was encamped, at the Mountain of God.
    1806He said to Moses, I, your father-in-law Jethro, have come to you with your wife, and her two sons with her.
    1807Moses went out to meet his father-in-law, and bowed and kissed him. They asked each other of their welfare, and they came into the tent.
    1808Moses told his father-in-law all that Yahweh had done to Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, all the hardships that had come on them on the way, and how Yahweh delivered them.
    1809Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which Yahweh had done to Israel, in that he had delivered them out of the hand of the Egyptians.
    1810Jethro said, Blessed be Yahweh, 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.
    1811Now I know that Yahweh is greater than all gods because of the way that they treated people arrogantly.
    1812Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, took a burnt offering and sacrifices for God. Aaron came with all the elders of Israel, to eat bread with Moses' father-in-law before God.
    1813On the next day, Moses sat to judge the people, and the people stood around Moses from the morning to the evening.
    1814When Moses' father-in-law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that you do for the people? Why do you sit alone, and all the people stand around you from morning to evening?
    1815Moses said to his father-in-law, Because the people come to me to inquire of God.
    1816When they have a matter, they come to me, and I judge between a man and his neighbor, and I make them know the statutes of God, and his laws.
    1817Moses' father-in-law said to him, The thing that you do is not good.
    1818You will surely wear away, both you, and this people that is with you; for the thing is too heavy for you. You are not able to perform it yourself alone.
    1819Listen now to my voice. I will give you counsel, and God be with you. You represent the people before God, and bring the causes to God.
    1820You shall teach them the statutes and the laws, and shall show them the way in which they must walk, and the work that they must do.
    1821Moreover you shall provide out of all the people able men which fear God: men of truth, hating unjust gain; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.
    1822Let them judge the people at all times. It shall be that every great matter they shall bring to you, but every small matter they shall judge themselves. So shall it be easier for you, and they shall share the load with you.
    1823If you will do this thing, and God commands you so, then you will be able to endure, and all these people also will go to their place in peace.
    1824So Moses listened to the voice of his father-in-law, and did all that he had said.
    1825Moses 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.
    1826They judged the people at all times. They brought the hard cases to Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves.
    1827Moses let his father-in-law depart, and he went his way into his own land.
    1901In the third month after the children of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, on that same day they came into the wilderness of Sinai.
    1902When they had departed from Rephidim, and had come to the wilderness of Sinai, they encamped in the wilderness; and there Israel encamped before the mountain.
    1903Moses went up to God, and Yahweh called to him out of the mountain, saying, This is what you shall tell the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel:
    1904'You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings, and brought you to myself.
    1905Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, then you shall be my own possession from among all peoples; for all the earth is mine;
    1906and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.' These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.
    1907Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and set before them all these words which Yahweh commanded him.
    1908All the people answered together, and said, All that Yahweh has spoken we will do. Moses reported the words of the people to Yahweh.
    1909Yahweh said to Moses, Behold, I come to you in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with you, and may also believe you forever. Moses told the words of the people to Yahweh.
    1910Yahweh said to Moses, Go to the people, and sanctify them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments,
    1911and be ready for the third day; for on the third day Yahweh will come down in the sight of all the people on Mount Sinai.
    1912You shall set bounds to the people all around, saying, 'Be careful that you don't go up onto the mountain, or touch its border. Whoever touches the mountain shall be surely put to death.
    1913No hand shall touch him, but he shall surely be stoned or shot through; whether it is animal or man, he shall not live.' When the trumpet sounds long, they shall come up to the mountain.
    1914Moses went down from the mountain to the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes.
    1915He said to the people, Be ready by the third day. Don't have sexual relations with a woman.
    1916On the third day, when it was morning, there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud on the mountain, and the sound of an exceedingly loud trumpet; and all the people who were in the camp trembled.
    1917Moses led the people out of the camp to meet God; and they stood at the lower part of the mountain.
    1918All of Mount Sinai smoked, because Yahweh descended on it in fire; and its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly.
    1919When the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him by a voice.
    1920Yahweh came down on Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain. Yahweh called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.
    1921Yahweh said to Moses, Go down, warn the people, lest they break through to Yahweh to gaze, and many of them perish.
    1922Let the priests also, who come near to Yahweh, sanctify themselves, lest Yahweh break out on them.
    1923Moses said to Yahweh, The people can't come up to Mount Sinai, for you warned us, saying, 'Set bounds around the mountain, and sanctify it.'
    1924Yahweh said to him, Go down! You shall bring Aaron up with you, but don't let the priests and the people break through to come up to Yahweh, lest he break out against them.
    1925So Moses went down to the people, and told them.
    2001God spoke all these words, saying,
    2002I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
    2003You shall have no other gods before me.
    2004You shall not make for yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
    2005you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me,
    2006and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
    2007You shall not misuse the name of Yahweh your God,' for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless who misuses his name.
    2008Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
    2009You shall labor six days, and do all your work,
    2010but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahweh your God. You shall not do any work in it, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your livestock, nor your stranger who is within your gates;
    2011for in six days Yahweh made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore Yahweh blessed the Sabbath day, and made it holy.
    2012Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which Yahweh your God gives you.
    2013You shall not murder.
    2014You shall not commit adultery.
    2015You shall not steal.
    2016You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
    2017You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.
    2018All the people perceived the thunderings, the lightnings, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking. When the people saw it, they trembled, and stayed at a distance.
    2019They said to Moses, Speak with us yourself, and we will listen; but don't let God speak with us, lest we die.
    2020Moses said to the people, Don't be afraid, for God has come to test you, and that his fear may be before you, that you won't sin.
    2021The people stayed at a distance, and Moses came near to the thick darkness where God was.
    2022Yahweh said to Moses, This is what you shall tell the children of Israel: 'You yourselves have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.
    2023You shall most certainly not make gods of silver or gods of gold for yourselves to be alongside me.
    2024You shall make an altar of earth for me, and shall sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your cattle. In every place where I record my name I will come to you and I will bless you.
    2025If you make me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of cut stones; for if you lift up your tool on it, you have polluted it.
    2026You shall not go up by steps to my altar, that your nakedness may not be exposed to it.'
    2101Now these are the ordinances which you shall set before them:
    2102If you buy a Hebrew servant, he shall serve six years, and in the seventh he shall go out free without paying anything.
    2103If he comes in by himself, he shall go out by himself. If he is married, then his wife shall go out with him.
    2104If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.
    2105But if the servant shall plainly say, 'I love my master, my wife, and my children. I will not go out free;'
    2106then his master shall bring him to God, and shall bring him to the door or to the doorpost, and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl, and he shall serve him forever.
    2107If a man sells his daughter to be a female servant, she shall not go out as the male servants do.
    2108If she doesn't please her master, who has married her to himself, then he shall let her be redeemed. He shall have no right to sell her to a foreign people, since he has dealt deceitfully with her.
    2109If he marries her to his son, he shall deal with her as a daughter.
    2110If he takes another wife to himself, he shall not diminish her food, her clothing, and her marital rights.
    2111If he doesn't do these three things for her, she may go free without paying any money.
    2112One who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death,
    2113but not if it is unintentional, but God allows it to happen; then I will appoint you a place where he shall flee.
    2114If a man schemes and comes presumptuously on his neighbor to kill him, you shall take him from my altar, that he may die.
    2115Anyone who attacks his father or his mother shall be surely put to death.
    2116Anyone who kidnaps someone and sells him, or if he is found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
    2117Anyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.
    2118If men quarrel and one strikes the other with a stone, or with his fist, and he doesn't die, but is confined to bed;
    2119if he rises again and walks around with his staff, then he who struck him shall be cleared; only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall provide for his healing until he is thoroughly healed.
    2120If a man strikes his servant or his maid with a rod, and he dies under his hand, the man shall surely be punished.
    2121Notwithstanding, if his servant gets up after a day or two, he shall not be punished, for the servant is his property.
    2122If men fight and hurt a pregnant woman so that she gives birth prematurely, and yet no harm follows, he shall be surely fined as much as the woman's husband demands and the judges allow.
    2123But if any harm follows, then you must take life for life,
    2124eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
    2125burning for burning, wound for wound, and bruise for bruise.
    2126If a man strikes his servant's eye, or his maid's eye, and destroys it, he shall let him go free for his eye's sake.
    2127If he strikes out his male servant's tooth, or his female servant's tooth, he shall let the servant go free for his tooth's sake.
    2128If a bull gores a man or a woman to death, the bull shall surely be stoned, and its meat shall not be eaten; but the owner of the bull shall not be held responsible.
    2129But if the bull had a habit of goring in the past, and this has been testified to its owner, and he has not kept it in, but it has killed a man or a woman, the bull shall be stoned, and its owner shall also be put to death.
    2130If a ransom is imposed on him, then he shall give for the redemption of his life whatever is imposed.
    2131Whether it has gored a son or has gored a daughter, according to this judgment it shall be done to him.
    2132If the bull gores a male servant or a female servant, thirty shekels of silver shall be given to their master, and the ox shall be stoned.
    2133If a man opens a pit, or if a man digs a pit and doesn't cover it, and a bull or a donkey falls into it,
    2134the owner of the pit shall make it good. He shall give money to its owner, and the dead animal shall be his.
    2135If one man's bull injures another's, so that it dies, then they shall sell the live bull, and divide its price; and they shall also divide the dead animal.
    2136Or if it is known that the bull was in the habit of goring in the past, and its owner has not kept it in, he shall surely pay bull for bull, and the dead animal shall be his own.
    2201If a man steals an ox or a sheep, and kills it or sells it, he shall pay five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.
    2202If the thief is found breaking in, and is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt of bloodshed for him.
    2203If the sun has risen on him, he is guilty of bloodshed. He shall make restitution. If he has nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.
    2204If the stolen property is found in his hand alive, whether it is ox, donkey, or sheep, he shall pay double.
    2205If a man causes a field or vineyard to be eaten by letting his animal loose, and it grazes in another man's field, he shall make restitution from the best of his own field, and from the best of his own vineyard.
    2206If fire breaks out, and catches in thorns so that the shocks of grain, or the standing grain, or the field are consumed; he who kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.
    2207If a man delivers to his neighbor money or stuff to keep, and it is stolen out of the man's house, if the thief is found, he shall pay double.
    2208If the thief isn't found, then the master of the house shall come near to God, to find out whether or not he has put his hand on his neighbor's goods.
    2209For every matter of trespass, whether it is for ox, for donkey, for sheep, for clothing, or for any kind of lost thing, about which one says, 'This is mine,' the cause of both parties shall come before God. He whom God condemns shall pay double to his neighbor.
    2210If a man delivers to his neighbor a donkey, an ox, a sheep, or any animal to keep, and it dies or is injured, or driven away, no man seeing it;
    2211the oath of Yahweh shall be between them both, he has not put his hand on his neighbor's goods; and its owner shall accept it, and he shall not make restitution.
    2212But if it is stolen from him, the one who stole shall make restitution to its owner.
    2213If it is torn in pieces, let him bring it for evidence. He shall not make good that which was torn.
    2214If a man borrows anything of his neighbor's, and it is injured, or dies, its owner not being with it, he shall surely make restitution.
    2215If its owner is with it, he shall not make it good. If it is a leased thing, it came for its lease.
    2216If a man entices a virgin who isn't pledged to be married, and lies with her, he shall surely pay a dowry for her to be his wife.
    2217If her father utterly refuses to give her to him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.
    2218You shall not allow a sorceress to live.
    2219Whoever has sex with an animal shall surely be put to death.
    2220He who sacrifices to any god, except to Yahweh only, shall be utterly destroyed.
    2221You shall not wrong an alien or oppress him, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.
    2222You shall not take advantage of any widow or fatherless child.
    2223If you take advantage of them at all, and they cry at all to me, I will surely hear their cry;
    2224and my wrath will grow hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.
    2225If you lend money to any of my people with you who is poor, you shall not be to him as a creditor. You shall not charge him interest.
    2226If you take your neighbor's garment as collateral, you shall restore it to him before the sun goes down,
    2227for that is his only covering, it is his garment for his skin. What would he sleep in? It will happen, when he cries to me, that I will hear, for I am gracious.
    2228You shall not blaspheme God, nor curse a ruler of your people.
    2229You shall not delay to offer from your harvest and from the outflow of your presses. You shall give the firstborn of your sons to me.
    2230You shall do likewise with your cattle and with your sheep. It shall be with its mother seven days, then on the eighth day you shall give it to me.
    2231You shall be holy men to me, therefore you shall not eat any meat that is torn by animals in the field. You shall cast it to the dogs.
    2301You shall not spread a false report. Don't join your hand with the wicked to be a malicious witness.
    2302You shall not follow a crowd to do evil. You shall not testify in court to side with a multitude to pervert justice.
    2303You shall not favor a poor man in his cause.
    2304If you meet your enemy's ox or his donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again.
    2305If you see the donkey of him who hates you fallen down under his burden, don't leave him. You shall surely help him with it.
    2306You shall not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits.
    2307Keep far from a false charge, and don't kill the innocent and righteous; for I will not justify the wicked.
    2308You shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds those who have sight and perverts the words of the righteous.
    2309You shall not oppress an alien, for you know the heart of an alien, since you were aliens in the land of Egypt.
    2310For six years you shall sow your land, and shall gather in its increase,
    2311but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave the animal of the field shall eat. In the same way, you shall deal with your vineyard and with your olive grove.
    2312Six days you shall do your work, and on the seventh day you shall rest, that your ox and your donkey may have rest, and the son of your servant, and the alien may be refreshed.
    2313Be careful to do all things that I have said to you; and don't invoke the name of other gods or even let them be heard out of your mouth.
    2314You shall observe a feast to me three times a year.
    2315You shall observe the feast of unleavened bread. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month Abib (for in it you came out of Egypt), and no one shall appear before me empty.
    2316And the feast of harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you sow in the field; and the feast of ingathering, at the end of the year, when you gather in your labors out of the field.
    2317Three times in the year all your males shall appear before the Lord Yahweh.
    2318You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread. The fat of my feast shall not remain all night until the morning.
    2319You shall bring the first of the first fruits of your ground into the house of Yahweh your God. You shall not boil a young goat in its mother's milk.
    2320Behold, I send an angel before you, to keep you by the way, and to bring you into the place which I have prepared.
    2321Pay attention to him, and listen to his voice. Don't provoke him, for he will not pardon your disobedience, for my name is in him.
    2322But if you indeed listen to his voice, and do all that I speak, then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and an adversary to your adversaries.
    2323For my angel shall go before you, and bring you in to the Amorite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Canaanite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite; and I will cut them off.
    2324You shall not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor follow their practices, but you shall utterly overthrow them and demolish their pillars.
    2325You shall serve Yahweh your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you.
    2326No one will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will fulfill the number of your days.
    2327I will send my terror before you, and will confuse all the people to whom you come, and I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you.
    2328I will send the hornet before you, which will drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before you.
    2329I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate, and the animals of the field multiply against you.
    2330Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased and inherit the land.
    2331I will set your border from the Red Sea even to the sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the River; for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you.
    2332You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.
    2333They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against me, for if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.
    2401He said to Moses, Come up to Yahweh, you, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship from a distance.
    2402Moses alone shall come near to Yahweh, but they shall not come near. The people shall not go up with him.
    2403Moses came and told the people all Yahweh's words, and all the ordinances; and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which Yahweh has spoken will we do.
    2404Moses wrote all Yahweh's words, then rose up early in the morning and built an altar at the base of the mountain, with twelve pillars for the twelve tribes of Israel.
    2405He sent young men of the children of Israel, who offered burnt offerings and sacrificed peace offerings of cattle to Yahweh.
    2406Moses took half of the blood and put it in basins, and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
    2407He took the book of the covenant and read it in the hearing of the people, and they said, We will do all that Yahweh has said, and be obedient.
    2408Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Look, this is the blood of the covenant, which Yahweh has made with you concerning all these words.
    2409Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel went up.
    2410They saw the God of Israel. Under his feet was like a paved work of sapphire stone, like the skies for clearness.
    2411He didn't lay his hand on the nobles of the children of Israel. They saw God, and ate and drank.
    2412Yahweh said to Moses, Come up to me on the mountain, and stay here, and I will give you the stone tablets with the law and the commands that I have written, that you may teach them.
    2413Moses rose up with Joshua, his servant, and Moses went up onto God's Mountain.
    2414He said to the elders, Wait here for us, until we come again to you. Behold, Aaron and Hur are with you. Whoever is involved in a dispute can go to them.
    2415Moses went up on the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain.
    2416Yahweh's glory settled on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. The seventh day he called to Moses out of the middle of the cloud.
    2417The appearance of Yahweh's glory was like devouring fire on the top of the mountain in the eyes of the children of Israel.
    2418Moses entered into the middle of the cloud, and went up on the mountain; and Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights.
    2501Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    2502Speak to the children of Israel, that they take an offering for me. From everyone whose heart makes him willing you shall take my offering.

    2840You shall make tunics for Aaron's sons. You shall make sashes for them. You shall make headbands for them, for glory and for beauty.
    2841You shall put them on Aaron your brother, and on 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.
    2842You shall make them linen pants to cover their naked flesh. They shall reach from the waist even to the thighs.
    2843They shall be on Aaron and on his sons, when they go in to the Tent of Meeting, or when they come near to the altar to minister in the holy place, that they don't bear iniquity, and die. This shall be a statute forever to him and to his offspring after him.
    2901This is the thing that you shall do to them to make them holy, to minister to me in the priest's office: take one young bull and two rams without defect,
    2902unleavened bread, unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil. You shall make them of fine wheat flour.
    2903You shall put them into one basket, and bring them in the basket, with the bull and the two rams.
    2904You shall bring Aaron and his sons to the door of the Tent of Meeting, and shall wash them with water.
    2905You shall take the garments, and put on Aaron the tunic, the robe of the ephod, the ephod, and the breastplate, and clothe him with the skillfully woven band of the ephod.
    2906You shall set the turban on his head, and put the holy crown on the turban.
    2907Then you shall take the anointing oil, and pour it on his head, and anoint him.
    2908You shall bring his sons, and put tunics on them.
    2909You shall clothe them with belts, Aaron and his sons, and bind headbands on them. They shall have the priesthood by a perpetual statute. You shall consecrate Aaron and his sons.
    2910You shall bring the bull before the Tent of Meeting; and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the bull.
    2911You shall kill the bull before Yahweh at the door of the Tent of Meeting.
    2912You shall take of the blood of the bull, and put it on the horns of the altar with your finger; and you shall pour out all the blood at the base of the altar.
    2913You shall take all the fat that covers the innards, the cover of the liver, the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, and burn them on the altar.
    2914But the meat of the bull, and its skin, and its dung, you shall burn with fire outside of the camp. It is a sin offering.
    2915You shall also take the one ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram.
    2916You shall kill the ram, and you shall take its blood, and sprinkle it around on the altar.
    2917You shall cut the ram into its pieces, and wash its innards, and its legs, and put them with its pieces, and with its head.
    2918You shall burn the whole ram on the altar: it is a burnt offering to Yahweh; it is a pleasant aroma, an offering made by fire to Yahweh.
    2919You shall take the other ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram.
    2920Then you shall kill the ram, and take some of its 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 big toe of their right foot; and sprinkle the blood around on the altar.
    2921You 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 made holy, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.
    2922Also you shall take some of the ram's fat, the fat tail, the fat that covers the innards, the cover of the liver, the two kidneys, the fat that is on them, and the right thigh (for it is a ram of consecration),
    2923and one loaf of bread, one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer out of the basket of unleavened bread that is before Yahweh.
    2924You shall put all of this in Aaron's hands, and in his sons' hands, and shall wave them for a wave offering before Yahweh.
    2925You shall take them from their hands, and burn them on the altar on the burnt offering, for a pleasant aroma before Yahweh: it is an offering made by fire to Yahweh.
    2926You shall take the breast of Aaron's ram of consecration, and wave it for a wave offering before Yahweh. It shall be your portion.
    2927You shall sanctify the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the wave offering, which is waved, and which is raised up, of the ram of consecration, even of that which is for Aaron, and of that which is for his sons.
    2928It shall be for Aaron and his sons as their portion forever from the children of Israel; for it is a wave offering. It shall be a wave offering from the children of Israel of the sacrifices of their peace offerings, even their wave offering to Yahweh.
    2929The holy garments of Aaron shall be for his sons after him, to be anointed in them, and to be consecrated in them.
    2930Seven days shall the son who is priest in his place put them on, when he comes into the Tent of Meeting to minister in the holy place.
    2931You shall take the ram of consecration and boil its meat in a holy place.
    2932Aaron and his sons shall eat the meat of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket, at the door of the Tent of Meeting.
    2933They shall eat those things with which atonement was made, to consecrate and sanctify them; but a stranger shall not eat of it, because they are holy.
    2934If anything of the meat of the consecration, or of the bread, remains to the morning, then you shall burn the remainder with fire. It shall not be eaten, because it is holy.
    2935You shall do so to Aaron and to his sons, according to all that I have commanded you. You shall consecrate them seven days.
    2936Every day you shall offer the bull of sin offering for atonement. You shall cleanse the altar when you make atonement for it. You shall anoint it, to sanctify it.
    2937Seven days you shall make atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; and the altar shall be most holy. Whatever touches the altar shall be holy.
    2938Now this is that which you shall offer on the altar: two lambs a year old day by day continually.
    2939The one lamb you shall offer in the morning; and the other lamb you shall offer at evening;
    2940and with the one lamb a tenth part of an ephah of fine flour mixed with the fourth part of a hin' of beaten oil, and the fourth part of a hin of wine for a drink offering.
    2941The other lamb you shall offer at evening, and shall do to it according to the meal offering of the morning and according to its drink offering, for a pleasant aroma, an offering made by fire to Yahweh.
    2942It shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the Tent of Meeting before Yahweh, where I will meet with you, to speak there to you.
    2943There I will meet with the children of Israel; and the place shall be sanctified by my glory.
    2944I will sanctify the Tent of Meeting and the altar. I will also sanctify Aaron and his sons to minister to me in the priest's office.
    2945I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God.
    2946They shall know that I am Yahweh their God, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, that I might dwell among them: I am Yahweh their God.
    3001You shall make an altar to burn incense on. You shall make it of acacia wood.
    3002Its length shall be a cubit, and its width a cubit. It shall be square, and its height shall be two cubits. Its horns shall be of one piece with it.
    3003You shall overlay it with pure gold, its top, its sides around it, and its horns; and you shall make a gold molding around it.
    3004You shall make two golden rings for it under its molding; on its two ribs, on its two sides you shall make them; and they shall be for places for poles with which to bear it.
    3005You shall make the poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold.
    3006You shall put it before the veil that is by the ark of the covenant, before the mercy seat that is over the covenant, where I will meet with you.
    3007Aaron shall burn incense of sweet spices on it every morning. When he tends the lamps, he shall burn it.
    3008When Aaron lights the lamps at evening, he shall burn it, a perpetual incense before Yahweh throughout your generations.
    3009You shall offer no strange incense on it, nor burnt offering, nor meal offering; and you shall pour no drink offering on it.
    3010Aaron shall make atonement on its horns once in the year; with the blood of the sin offering of atonement once in the year he shall make atonement for it throughout your generations. It is most holy to Yahweh.
    3011Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    3012When you take a census of the children of Israel, according to those who are counted among them, then each man shall give a ransom for his soul to Yahweh when you count them, that there be no plague among them when you count them.
    3013They shall give this, everyone who passes over to those who are counted, half a shekel according to the shekel' of the sanctuary (the shekel is twenty gerahs); half a shekel for an offering to Yahweh.
    3014Everyone who passes over to those who are counted, from twenty years old and upward, shall give the offering to Yahweh.
    3015The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less, than the half shekel, when they give the offering of Yahweh, to make atonement for your souls.
    3016You shall take the atonement money from the children of Israel, and shall appoint it for the service of the Tent of Meeting; that it may be a memorial for the children of Israel before Yahweh, to make atonement for your souls.
    3017Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    3018You shall also make a basin of bronze, and its base of bronze, in which to wash. You shall put it between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and you shall put water in it.
    3019Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet in it.
    3020When they go into the Tent of Meeting, they shall wash with water, that they not die; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn an offering made by fire to Yahweh.
    3021So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they not die. This shall be a statute forever to them, even to him and to his descendants throughout their generations.
    3022Moreover Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    3023Also take fine spices: of liquid myrrh, five hundred shekels; and of fragrant cinnamon half as much, even two hundred and fifty; and of fragrant cane, two hundred and fifty;
    3024and of cassia five hundred, according to the shekel of the sanctuary; and a hin' of olive oil.
    3025You shall make it into a holy anointing oil, a perfume compounded after the art of the perfumer: it shall be a holy anointing oil.
    3026You shall use it to anoint the Tent of Meeting, the ark of the covenant,
    3027the table and all its articles, the lamp stand and its accessories, the altar of incense,
    3028the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the basin with its base.
    3029You shall sanctify them, that they may be most holy. Whatever touches them shall be holy.
    3030You shall anoint Aaron and his sons, and sanctify them, that they may minister to me in the priest's office.
    3031You shall speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'This shall be a holy anointing oil to me throughout your generations.
    3032It shall not be poured on man's flesh, and do not make any like it, according to its composition. It is holy. It shall be holy to you.
    3033Whoever compounds any like it, or whoever puts any of it on a stranger, he shall be cut off from his people.'
    3034Yahweh said to Moses, Take to yourself sweet spices, gum resin, onycha, and galbanum: sweet spices with pure frankincense. There shall be an equal weight of each.
    3035You shall make incense of it, a perfume after the art of the perfumer, seasoned with salt, pure and holy.
    3036You shall beat some of it very small, and put some of it before the covenant in the Tent of Meeting, where I will meet with you. It shall be to you most holy.
    3037You shall not make this incense, according to its composition, for yourselves: it shall be to you holy for Yahweh.
    3038Whoever shall make any like that, to smell of it, he shall be cut off from his people.
    3101Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    3102Behold, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.
    3103I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all kinds of workmanship,
    3104to devise skillful works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in bronze,
    3105and in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving of wood, to work in all kinds of workmanship.
    3106Behold, I myself have appointed with him Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the heart of all who are wise-hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded you:
    3107the Tent of Meeting, the ark of the covenant, the mercy seat that is on it, all the furniture of the Tent,
    3108the table and its vessels, the pure lamp stand with all its vessels, the altar of incense,
    3109the altar of burnt offering with all its vessels, the basin and its base,
    3110the finely worked garmentsthe holy garments for Aaron the priest, the garments of his sons to minister in the priest's office
    3111the anointing oil, and the incense of sweet spices for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded you they shall do.
    3112Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    3113Speak also to the children of Israel, saying, 'Most certainly you shall keep my Sabbaths; for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am Yahweh who sanctifies you.
    3114You shall keep the Sabbath therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
    3115Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to Yahweh. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall surely be put to death.
    3116Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
    3117It is a sign between me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days Yahweh made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.'
    3118When he finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, he gave Moses the two tablets of the covenant, stone tablets, written with God's finger.
    3201When the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron, and said to him, Come, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we don't know what has become of him.
    3202Aaron said to them, Take off the golden rings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them to me.
    3203All the people took off the golden rings which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron.
    3204He received what they handed him, fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made it a molded calf. Then they said, These are your gods, Israel, which brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
    3205When Aaron saw this, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made a proclamation, and said, Tomorrow shall be a feast to Yahweh.
    3206They rose up early on the next day, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
    3207Yahweh spoke to Moses, Go, get down; for your people, whom you brought up out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves!
    3208They have turned away quickly out of the way which I commanded them. They have made themselves a molded calf, and have worshiped it, and have sacrificed to it, and said, 'These are your gods, Israel, which brought you up out of the land of Egypt.'
    3209Yahweh said to Moses, I have seen these people, and behold, they are a stiff-necked people.
    3210Now therefore leave me alone, that my wrath may burn hot against them, and that I may consume them; and I will make of you a great nation.
    3211Moses begged Yahweh his God, and said, Yahweh, why does your wrath burn hot against your people, that you have brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand?
    3212Why should the Egyptians talk, saying, 'He brought them out for evil, to kill them in the mountains, and to consume them from the surface of the earth?' Turn from your fierce wrath, and turn away from this evil against your people.
    3213Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, to whom you swore by your own self, and said to them, 'I will multiply your offspring as the stars of the sky, and all this land that I have spoken of I will give to your offspring, and they shall inherit it forever.'
    3214So Yahweh turned away from the evil which he said he would do to his people.
    3215Moses turned, and went down from the mountain, with the two tablets of the covenant in his hand; tablets that were written on both their sides. They were written on one side and on the other.
    3216The tablets were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, engraved on the tablets.
    3217When Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, There is the noise of war in the camp.
    3218He said, It isn't the voice of those who shout for victory. It is not the voice of those who cry for being overcome; but the noise of those who sing that I hear.
    3219As soon as he came near to the camp, he saw the calf and the dancing. Then Moses' anger grew hot, and he threw the tablets out of his hands, and broke them beneath the mountain.
    3220He took the calf which they had made, and burned it with fire, ground it to powder, and scattered it on the water, and made the children of Israel drink it.
    3221Moses said to Aaron, What did these people do to you, that you have brought a great sin on them?
    3222Aaron said, Don't let the anger of my lord grow hot. You know the people, that they are set on evil.
    3223For they said to me, 'Make us gods, which shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we don't know what has become of him.'
    3224I said to them, 'Whoever has any gold, let them take it off.' So they gave it to me; and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf.
    3225When Moses saw that the people were out of control, (for Aaron had let them lose control, causing derision among their enemies),
    3226then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Whoever is on Yahweh's side, come to me!
    3227the sons of Levi gathered themselves together to him.
    3228He said to them, Yahweh, the God of Israel, says, 'Every man put his sword on his thigh, and go back and forth from gate to gate throughout the camp, and every man kill his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.'
    3229The sons of Levi did according to the word of Moses. About three thousand men fell of the people that day.
    3230Moses said, Consecrate yourselves today to Yahweh, for every man was against his son and against his brother, that he may give you a blessing today.
    3231On the next day, Moses said to the people, You have sinned a great sin. Now I will go up to Yahweh. Perhaps I shall make atonement for your sin.
    3232Moses returned to Yahweh, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made themselves gods of gold.
    3233Yet now, if you will, forgive their sinand if not, please blot me out of your book which you have written.
    3234Yahweh said to Moses, Whoever has sinned against me, I will blot him out of my book.
    3235Now 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 punish, I will punish them for their sin.
    3301Yahweh struck the people, because of what they did with the calf, which Aaron made.
    3302Yahweh spoke to Moses, Depart, go up from here, you and the people that you have brought up out of the land of Egypt, to the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, 'I will give it to your offspring.'
    3303I 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.
    3304Go to a land flowing with milk and honey; but I will not go up among you, for you are a stiff-necked people, lest I consume you on the way.
    3305When the people heard this evil news, they mourned; and no one put on his jewelry.
    3306Yahweh had said to Moses, Tell the children of Israel, 'You are a stiff-necked people. If I were to go up among you for one moment, I would consume you. Therefore now take off your jewelry from you, that I may know what to do to you.'
    3307The children of Israel stripped themselves of their jewelry from Mount Horeb onward.
    3308Now Moses used to take the tent and pitch it outside the camp, far away from the camp, and he called it The Tent of Meeting. Everyone who sought Yahweh went out to the Tent of Meeting, which was outside the camp.
    3309When Moses went out to the Tent, all the people rose up, and stood, everyone at their tent door, and watched Moses, until he had gone into the Tent.
    3310When Moses entered into the Tent, the pillar of cloud descended, stood at the door of the Tent, and Yahweh spoke with Moses.
    3311All the people saw the pillar of cloud stand at the door of the Tent, and all the people rose up and worshiped, everyone at their tent door.
    3312Yahweh spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. He turned again into the camp, but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, didn't depart from the Tent.
    3313Moses said to Yahweh, Behold, you tell me, 'Bring up this people;' and you haven't let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.'
    3314Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me your way, now, that I may know you, so that I may find favor in your sight; and consider that this nation is your people.
    3315He said, My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.
    3316Moses said to him, If your presence doesn't go with me, don't carry us up from here.
    3317For how would people know that I have found favor in your sight, I and your people? Isn't it that you go with us, so that we are separated, I and your people, from all the people who are on the surface of the earth?
    3318Yahweh said to Moses, I will do this thing also that you have spoken; for you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name.
    3319Moses said, Please show me your glory.
    3320He said, I will make all my goodness pass before you, and will proclaim Yahweh's name before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.
    3321He said, You cannot see my face, for man may not see me and live.
    3322Yahweh also said, Behold, there is a place by me, and you shall stand on the rock.
    3323It will happen, while my glory passes by, that I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and will cover you with my hand until I have passed by;
    3401then I will take away my hand, and you will see my back; but my face shall not be seen.
    3402Yahweh said to Moses, Chisel two stone tablets like the first. I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.
    3403Be ready by the morning, and come up in the morning to Mount Sinai, and present yourself there to me on the top of the mountain.
    3404No one shall come up with you or be seen anywhere on the mountain. Do not let the flocks or herds graze in front of that mountain.
    3405He chiseled two tablets of stone like the first; then Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up to Mount Sinai, as Yahweh had commanded him, and took in his hand two stone tablets.
    3406Yahweh descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed Yahweh's name.
    3407Yahweh passed by before him, and proclaimed, Yahweh! Yahweh, a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth,
    3408keeping loving kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and disobedience and sin; and who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, and on the children's children, on the third and on the fourth generation.
    3409Moses hurried and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped.
    3410He said, If now I have found favor in your sight, Lord, please let the Lord go among us, even though this is a stiff-necked people; pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for your inheritance.
    3411He said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been worked in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of Yahweh; for it is an awesome thing that I do with you.
    3412Observe that which I command you today. Behold, I will drive out before you the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
    3413Be careful, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be for a snare among you;
    3414but you shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars, and you shall cut down their Asherah poles;
    3415for you shall worship no other god; for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
    3416Don't make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, lest they play the prostitute after their gods, and sacrifice to their gods, and one call you and you eat of his sacrifice;
    3417and you take of their daughters to your sons, and their daughters play the prostitute after their gods, and make your sons play the prostitute after their gods.
    3418You shall make no cast idols for yourselves.
    3419You shall keep the feast of unleavened bread. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month Abib; for in the month Abib you came out of Egypt.
    3420All that opens the womb is mine; and all your livestock that is male, the firstborn of cow and sheep.
    3421You shall redeem the firstborn of a donkey with a lamb. If you will not redeem it, then you shall break its neck. You shall redeem all the firstborn of your sons. No one shall appear before me empty.
    3422Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest: in plowing time and in harvest you shall rest.
    3423You shall observe the feast of weeks with the first fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of harvest at the year's end.
    3424Three times in the year all your males shall appear before the Lord Yahweh, the God of Israel.
    3425For I will drive out nations before you and enlarge your borders; neither shall any man desire your land when you go up to appear before Yahweh, your God, three times in the year.
    3426You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread. The sacrifice of the feast of the Passover shall not be left to the morning.
    3427You shall bring the first of the first fruits of your ground to the house of Yahweh your God.
    3428shall not boil a young goat in its mother's milk.
    3429Yahweh said to Moses, Write these words; for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.
    3430He was there with Yahweh forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread, nor drank water. He wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
    3431When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mountain, Moses didn't know that the skin of his face shone by reason of his speaking with him.
    3432When Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come near him.
    3433Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned to him; and Moses spoke to them.
    3434Afterward all the children of Israel came near, and he gave them all the commandments that Yahweh had spoken with him on Mount Sinai.
    3435When Moses was done speaking with them, he put a veil on his face.
    3436But when Moses went in before Yahweh 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.
    3437The children of Israel saw Moses' face, that the skin of Moses' face shone; so Moses put the veil on his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
    3501Moses assembled all the congregation of the children of Israel, and said to them, These are the words which Yahweh has commanded, that you should do them.
    3502'Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be a holy day for you, a Sabbath of solemn rest to Yahweh: whoever does any work in it shall be put to death.
    3503You shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations on the Sabbath day.'
    3504Moses spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which Yahweh commanded, saying,
    3505'Take from among you an offering to Yahweh. Whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it as Yahweh's offering: gold, silver, bronze,
    3506blue, purple, scarlet, fine linen, goats' hair,
    3507rams' skins dyed red, sea cow hides, acacia wood,
    3508oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense,
    3509onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod and for the breastplate.
    3510Let every wise-hearted man among you come, and make all that Yahweh has commanded:
    3511the tabernacle, its outer covering, its roof, its clasps, its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets;
    3512the ark, and its poles, the mercy seat, the veil of the screen;
    3513the table with its poles and all its vessels, and the show bread;
    3514the lamp stand also for the light, with its vessels, its lamps, and the oil for the light;
    3515and the altar of incense with its poles, the anointing oil, the sweet incense, the screen for the door, at the door of the tabernacle;
    3516the altar of burnt offering, with its grating of bronze, its poles, and all its vessels, the basin and its base;
    3517the hangings of the court, its pillars, their sockets, and the screen for the gate of the court;
    3518the pins of the tabernacle, the pins of the court, and their cords;
    3519the finely worked garments for ministering in the holy placethe holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sonsto minister in the priest's office.'
    3520All the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.
    3521They came, everyone whose heart stirred him up, and everyone whom his spirit made willing, and brought Yahweh's offering for the work of the Tent of Meeting, and for all of its service, and for the holy garments.
    3522They came, both men and women, as many as were willing-hearted, and brought brooches, earrings, signet rings, and armlets, all jewels of gold; even every man who offered an offering of gold to Yahweh.
    3523Everyone with whom was found blue, purple, scarlet, fine linen, goats' hair, rams' skins dyed red, and sea cow hides, brought them.
    3524Everyone who offered an offering of silver and bronze brought Yahweh's offering; and everyone with whom was found acacia wood for any work of the service, brought it.
    3525All the women who were wise-hearted spun with their hands, and brought that which they had spun: the blue, the purple, the scarlet, and the fine linen.
    3526All the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun the goats' hair.
    3527The rulers brought the onyx stones and the stones to be set for the ephod and for the breastplate;
    3528with the spice and the oil for the light, for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.
    3529The children of Israel brought a free will offering to Yahweh; every man and woman whose heart made them willing to bring for all the work, which Yahweh had commanded to be made by Moses.
    3530Moses said to the children of Israel, Behold, Yahweh has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.
    3531He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all kinds of workmanship;
    3532and to make skillful works, to work in gold, in silver, in bronze,
    3533in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving of wood, to work in all kinds of skillful workmanship.
    3534He has put in his heart that he may teach, both he and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.
    3535He has filled them with wisdom of heart to work all kinds of workmanship, of the engraver, of the skillful workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of those who do any workmanship, and of those who make skillful works.
    3601Bezalel and Oholiab shall work with every wise-hearted man, in whom Yahweh has put wisdom and understanding to know how to do all the work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that Yahweh has commanded.
    3602Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab, and every wise-hearted man, in whose heart Yahweh had put wisdom, even everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to the work to do it.
    3603They received from Moses all the offering which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, with which to make it. They kept bringing free will offerings to him every morning.
    3604All the wise men, who performed all the work of the sanctuary, each came from his work which he did.
    3605They spoke to Moses, saying, The people have brought much more than enough for the service of the work which Yahweh commanded to make.
    3606Moses gave a commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make anything else for the offering for the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing.
    3607For the stuff they had was sufficient to do all the work, and too much.
    3608All the wise-hearted men among those who did the work made the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, blue, purple, and scarlet. They made them with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman.
    3609The length of each curtain was twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits. All the curtains had one measure.
    3610He coupled five curtains to one another, and the other five curtains he coupled to one another.

    3903They beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in with the blue, the purple, the scarlet, and the fine linen, the work of the skillful workman.
    3904They made shoulder straps for it, joined together. It was joined together at the two ends.
    3905The skillfully woven band that was on it, with which to fasten it on, was of the same piece, like its work: of gold, of blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    3906They worked the onyx stones, enclosed in settings of gold, engraved with the engravings of a signet, according to the names of the children of Israel.
    3907He put them on the shoulder straps of the ephod, to be stones of memorial for the children of Israel, as Yahweh commanded Moses.

    3919They made two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends of the breastplate, on its edge, which was toward the side of the ephod inward.
    3920They made two more rings of gold, and put them on the two shoulder straps of the ephod underneath, in its front, close by its coupling, above the skillfully woven band of the ephod.
    3921They bound the breastplate by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be on the skillfully woven band of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not come loose from the ephod, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    3922He made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.
    3923The opening of the robe in the middle of it was like the opening of a coat of mail, with a binding around its opening, that it should not be torn.
    3924They made on the skirts of the robe pomegranates of blue, purple, scarlet, and twined linen.
    3925They made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates around the skirts of the robe, between the pomegranates;
    3926a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, around the skirts of the robe, to minister in, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    3927They made the tunics of fine linen of woven work for Aaron and for his sons,
    3928the turban of fine linen, the linen headbands of fine linen, the linen trousers of fine twined linen,
    3929the sash of fine twined linen, blue, purple, and scarlet, the work of the embroiderer, as Yahweh commanded Moses.

    3931They tied to it a lace of blue, to fasten it on the turban above, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    3932Thus all the work of the tabernacle of the Tent of Meeting was finished. The children of Israel did according to all that Yahweh commanded Moses; so they did.
    3933They brought the tabernacle to Moses: the tent, with all its furniture, its clasps, its boards, its bars, its pillars, its sockets,
    3934the covering of rams' skins dyed red, the covering of sea cow hides, the veil of the screen,

    3943Moses saw all the work, and behold, they had done it as Yahweh had commanded. They had done so; and Moses blessed them.
    4001Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
    4002On the first day of the first month you shall raise up the tabernacle of the Tent of Meeting.
    4003You shall put the ark of the covenant in it, and you shall screen the ark with the veil.
    4004You shall bring in the table, and set in order the things that are on it. You shall bring in the lamp stand, and light its lamps.
    4005You shall set the golden altar for incense before the ark of the covenant, and put the screen of the door to the tabernacle.
    4006You shall set the altar of burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the Tent of Meeting.
    4007You shall set the basin between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and shall put water therein.
    4008You shall set up the court around it, and hang up the screen of the gate of the court.
    4009You shall take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it, and shall make it holy, and all its furniture, and it will be holy.
    4010You shall anoint the altar of burnt offering, with all its vessels, and sanctify the altar, and the altar will be most holy.
    4011You shall anoint the basin and its base, and sanctify it.
    4012You shall bring Aaron and his sons to the door of the Tent of Meeting, and shall wash them with water.
    4013You shall put on Aaron the holy garments; and you shall anoint him, and sanctify him, that he may minister to me in the priest's office.
    4014You shall bring his sons, and put tunics on them.
    4015You shall anoint them, as you anointed their father, that they may minister to me in the priest's office. Their anointing shall be to them for an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.
    4016Moses did so. According to all that Yahweh commanded him, so he did.
    4017In the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, the tabernacle was raised up.
    4018Moses raised up the tabernacle, and laid its sockets, and set up its boards, and put in its bars, and raised up its pillars.
    4019He spread the covering over the tent, and put the roof of the tabernacle above on it, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    4020He took and put the covenant into the ark, and set the poles on the ark, and put the mercy seat above on the ark.
    4021He brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the veil of the screen, and screened the ark of the covenant, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    4022He put the table in the Tent of Meeting, on the north side of the tabernacle, outside of the veil.
    4023He set the bread in order on it before Yahweh, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    4024He put the lamp stand in the Tent of Meeting, opposite the table, on the south side of the tabernacle.
    4025He lit the lamps before Yahweh, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    4026He put the golden altar in the Tent of Meeting before the veil;
    4027and he burned incense of sweet spices on it, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    4028He put up the screen of the door to the tabernacle.
    4029He set the altar of burnt offering at the door of the tabernacle of the Tent of Meeting, and offered on it the burnt offering and the meal offering, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    4030He set the basin between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and put water therein, with which to wash.
    4031Moses, Aaron, and his sons washed their hands and their feet there.
    4032When they went into the Tent of Meeting, and when they came near to the altar, they washed, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
    4033He raised up the court around the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the screen of the gate of the court. So Moses finished the work.
    4034Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and Yahweh's glory filled the tabernacle.
    4035Moses wasn't able to enter into the Tent of Meeting, because the cloud stayed on it, and Yahweh's glory filled the tabernacle.
    4036When the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward, throughout all their journeys;
    4037but if the cloud wasn't taken up, then they didn't travel until the day that it was taken up.
    4038For the cloud of Yahweh was on the tabernacle by day, and there was fire in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
