[merged small][ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors][merged small]

17 And Moses' Dither in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good.

18 tThou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; 'thou art not able to perform it thyself alone.

19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and tGod shall be with thee: Be thou "for the people to Godward, that thou mayest 1 bring the causes unto God:

20 And thou shalt r teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them 'the way wherein they must walk, and 'the work that they must do.

21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people b able men, such as cfear God, dmen of truth, "hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

22 And let them judge the people f at all seasons: fand it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but ever3' small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and hthey shall bear the burden with thee.

23 If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then thou shalt be 'able to endure, and all this people shall also go to k their place in peace.

24 So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and did all that he had said.

25 And 'Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.

26 And they "judged the people at all seasons: the "hard causes they brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves.

27 1 And Moses let his father in law depart; and ° he went his way into his own land.

CHAPTER XIX.

1 The people come to Sinai. 8 GotVs me*, fofie by J/o.-fS unto the people out of the mount. 8 The people'* awirer returned again. 10 The people are prejuired against the thin/ day. 12 The mountain miutt not be touched. 16 The fcarjul presence of Coil upon the mount.

IN the third month, when the children of Israel were gone

forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day 'came they into the wilderness of Sinai.

2 For they were departed from "Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before c the mount.

3 And d Moses went up unto God, and the Lord 6 called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;

4 fYe have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how si bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

5 Now "therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then "ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for kall the earth is mine:

C And ye shall be unto me a 'kingdom of priests, and a "'holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

7 1[ And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the Loud commanded him.

8 And "all the people answered together, and said, All that the Lord hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the Lord.

9 And the Lord said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee "in a thick cloud, Pthat the people may hear when I speak with thee, and i believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the Lord.

10 I And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and r sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them "wash their clothes, .

11 And be ready against the third day: for the third day the Lord 'will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

12 And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it: "whosoever touchcth the mount 6hall be surely put to death:

13 There shall not a hand touch

16 wThou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

17 xThou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

18 "J And zall the people asaw the thundcrings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.

19 And they said unto Moses, c Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but dlet not God speak with us, lest we die.

20 And Moses said unto the people, eFear not: rfor God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.

21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto hthe thick darkness where God was.

22 1 And the Lord said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you 1 from heaven.

23 Ye shall not make k with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold.

24 U An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, 1 thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all m places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will ■ bless thee.

25 And 0 if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not tbuild it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.

26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon.

CHAPTER XXI.

1 Lairs for nienserrants. ft For the servant whose ear is bored. 7 For tromenservants. 1- For vinnshiu<jhter. 10 For stealers of men. 17 For cw-sers of parents. 18 For matters. 22 For a hurt by chance. 28 For an or that aoreth. S3 For him that w an occasion of harm.

1VTOW these are the judgments IA which thou shalt » set before them.

2 bIf thou buy a Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and

in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.

3 If he came in thy himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him.

4 If his master have given him a wife, and she have borne him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.

5 cAnd if the servant t shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will

notgo out free:

6 Then his master shall bring him unto the djudges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall ebore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him for ever.

7 IT And if a man 'sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out 'as the menservants do.

8 If she t please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.

9 And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.

10 If he take him another wife, her food, her raiment, hand her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.

11 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free without money.

12 T 'He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.

13 And Mf ll man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hand; then m I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee.

14 But if a man come "presumptuously upon his neighbour, to slay him with guile; "thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.

15 T And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.

16 f And Phe that stealcth a man, and iselleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

17 t And 'he that Hcurseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.

18 I And if men strive together, and one smite I another with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his bed:

19 If he rise again, and walk abroad 'upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for t the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.

20 T And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely t punished.

21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for "he is his money.

22 1 If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall xpay as the judges determine.

23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,

21 'Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand a hand, foot for foot,

25 Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.

26 T And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid, that it perish; he shall let him go free for his eye's sake.

27 And if he smite out his manservant's tooth, or his maidservant's tooth; he shall let him go free for his tooth's sake.

28 T If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then "the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.

29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.

30 If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for »the ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.

31 Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.

32 If the ox shall push a man

servant or a maidservant; he shall give unto their master b thirty shekels of silver, and the c ox shall be stoned. 33 If And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit, and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein;

31 The owner of the pit shall make it good, and give money unto the owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his.

35 T And if one man's ox hurt another's, that he die; then they shall sell the live ox, and divide the money of it; and the dead ox also they shall divide.

36 Or if it be known that the ox hath used to push in time past, and his owner hath not kept him in; he shall surely pay ox for ox; and the dead shall be his own.

8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the "judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbour's goods.

9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the 'cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

10 If a man deliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it:

11 Then shall an 'oath of the Lord be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour s goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, y and he shall not make it good.

12 And 'if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the owner thereof.

13 If it be torn in pieces, then let him bring it for witness, and he shall not make good that which was torn.

14 1 And if a man borrow ought of his neighbour, and it be hurt, or die, the owner thereof being not with it, he shall surely make it good.

15 But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good: if it be a hired thing, it came for his hire.

17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall tpay money according to the • dowry of virgins.

24 And my 1 wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.

25 T * If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as a usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.

26 »If thou at all take thy neighbour's raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun £oeth down:

27 For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he bcrieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.

28 1 "Thou shalt not revile the 1 gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people.

29 H Thou shalt not delay to offer t'the first of thy ripe fruits, and of thy liquors: 'the firstborn of thy sons shalt thou give unto me.

30 s Likewise shalt thou do with thine oxen, and with thy sheep: seven days it shall be with his dam; on the eighth day thou shalt give it me.
