1 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover unto Jehovah your God, for in the
month of Abib Jehovah your God has brought you out of Egypt by night.
2 You shall sacrifice the Passover unto Jehovah your God, from the flock and the herd, in
the place where Jehovah chooses to establish His name.
3 You shall eat nothing leavened with it; seven days you shall eat unleavened bread with it,
the bread of affliction (for you came out of the land of Egypt in haste), that you may
remember the day in which you came out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life.
4 And no leaven shall be seen with you in all your territory for seven days, nor shall any of
the flesh which you sacrifice the first day at evening remain overnight until morning.
5 You shall not sacrifice the Passover within just any of your gates which Jehovah your
God gives you;
6 but at the place where Jehovah your God chooses to establish His name, there you shall
sacrifice the Passover at evening, at the going down of the sun, at the appointed time that
you came out of Egypt.
7 And you shall cook and eat it in the place which Jehovah your God chooses, and in the
morning you shall turn and go to your tents.
8 Six days you shall eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there shall be a solemn
assembly unto Jehovah your God. You shall do no work.
9 You shall count seven weeks for yourself; begin to count the seven weeks from when
you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain.
10 And you shall keep the Feast of Weeks unto Jehovah your God with the portion of a
freewill offering from your hand, which you shall give as Jehovah your God blesses you.
11 You shall rejoice before Jehovah your God, you and your son and your daughter, your
male servant and your female servant, the Levite who is within your gates, the sojourner
and the fatherless and the widow who are among you, at the place where Jehovah your
God chooses to establish His name.
12 And you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt, and you shall take heed to do
13 You shall observe the Feast of Booths seven days, when you have gathered from your
threshing floor and from your winepress.
14 And you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your male
servant and your female servant and the Levite, the sojourner and the fatherless and the
widow, who are within your gates.
15 Seven days you shall keep a feast unto Jehovah your God in the place which Jehovah
chooses, because Jehovah your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work
of your hands, so that you shall be joyful.
16 Three times a year all your males shall appear before Jehovah your God in the place
which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the
Feast of Booths; and they shall not appear before Jehovah empty.
17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of Jehovah your God
which He has given you.
18 You shall appoint judges and officers in all your gates, which Jehovah your God gives
you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.
19 You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe
blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous.
20 Justice, only justice shall you follow, that you may live and inherit the land which
Jehovah your God is giving to you.
21 You shall not plant for yourself any tree as a grove near the altar which you build for
yourself unto Jehovah your God.
22 You shall not set up a sacred pillar, which Jehovah your God hates.
