Laws for judges; the rest of the seventh year, and day: three principal feasts to be solemnized every year; the promise of an angel, to conduct and protect them: idols are to be destroyed.
1 Thou shalt not receive the voice of a lie: neither shalt thou join thy hand to bear false witness for a wicked person.
Non suscipies vocem mendacii, nec junges manum tuam ut pro impio dicas falsum testimonium.
2 Thou shalt not follow the multitude to do evil: neither shalt thou yield in judgment, to the opinion of the most part, to stray from the truth.
Non sequeris turbam ad faciendum malum : nec in judicio, plurimorum acquiesces sententiae, ut a vero devies.
3 Neither shalt thou favour a poor man in judgment.
Pauperis quoque non misereberis in judicio.
4 If thou meet thy enemy's ox or ass going astray, bring it back to him.
Si occurreris bovi inimici tui, aut asino erranti, reduc ad eum.
5 If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lie underneath his burden, thou shalt not pass by, but shalt lift him up with him.
Si videris asinum odientis te jacere sub onere, non pertransibis, sed sublevabis cum eo.
6 Thou shalt not go aside in the poor man's judgment.
Non declinabis in judicium pauperis.
7 Thou shalt fly lying. The innocent and just person thou shalt not put to death: because I abhor the wicked.
Mendacium fugies. Insontem et justum non occides : quia aversor impium.
8 Neither shalt thou take bribes, which even blind the wise, and pervert the words of the just.
Nec accipies munera, quae etiam excaecant prudentes, et subvertunt verba justorum.
9 Thou shalt not molest a stranger, for you know the hearts of strangers: for you also were strangers in the land of Egypt.
Peregrino molestus non eris. Scitis enim advenarum animas : quia et ipsi peregrini fuistis in terra Aegypti.
10 Six years thou shalt sow thy ground, and shalt gather the corn thereof.
Sex annis seminabis terram tuam, et congregabis fruges ejus :
11 But the seventh year thou shalt let it alone, and suffer it to rest, that the poor of thy people may eat, and whatsoever shall be left, let the beasts of the field eat it: so shalt thou do with thy vineyard and thy oliveyard.
anno autem septimo dimittes eam, et requiescere facies, ut comedant pauperes populi tui : et quidquid reliquum fuerit, edant bestiae agri : ita facies in vinea et in oliveto tuo.
12 Six days thou shalt work: the seventh day thou shalt cease, that thy ox and thy ass may rest: and the son of thy handmaid and the stranger may be refreshed.
Sex diebus operaberis : septimo die cessabis, ut requiescat bos et asinus tuus, et refrigeretur filius ancillae tuae, et advena.
13 Keep all things that I have said to you. And by the name of strange gods you shall not swear, neither shall it be heard out of your mouth.
Omnia quae dixi vobis, custodite. Et per nomen externorum deorum non jurabitis, neque audietur ex ore vestro.
14 Three times every year you shall celebrate feasts to me.
Tribus vicibus per singulos annos mihi festa celebrabitis.
15 Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread. Seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the month of new corn, when thou didst come forth out of Egypt: thou shalt not appear empty before me.
Solemnitatem azymorum custodies. Septem diebus comedes azyma, sicut praecepi tibi, tempore mensis novorum, quando egressus es de Aegypto : non apparebis in conspectu meo vacuus.
16 And the feast of the harvest of the firstfruits of thy work, whatsoever thou hast sown in the field. The feast also in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in all thy corn out of the field.
Et solemnitatem messis primitivorum operis tui, quaecumque seminaveris in agro : solemnitatem quoque in exitu anni, quando congregaveris omnes fruges tuas de agro.
17 Thrice a year shall all thy males appear before the Lord thy God.
Ter in anno apparebit omne masculinum tuum coram Domino Deo tuo.
18 Thou shalt not sacrifice the blood of my victim upon leaven, neither shall the fat of my solemnity remain until the morning.
Non immolabis super fermento sanguinem victimae meae, nec remanebit adeps solemnitatis meae usque mane.
19 Thou shalt carry the firstfruits of the corn of thy ground to the house of the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not boil a kid in the milk of his dam.
Primitias frugum terrae tuae deferes in domum Domini Dei tui. Non coques haedum in lacte matris suae.
20 Behold I will send my angel, who shall go before thee, and keep thee in thy journey, and bring thee into the place that I have prepared.
Ecce ego mittam angelum meum, qui praecedat te, et custodiat in via, et introducat in locum quem paravi.
21 Take notice of him, and hear his voice, and do not think him one to be contemned: for he will not forgive when thou hast sinned, and my name is in him.
Observa eum, et audi vocem ejus, nec contemnendum putes : quia non dimittet cum peccaveris, et est nomen meum in illo.
22 But if thou wilt hear his voice, and do all that I speak, I will be an enemy to thy enemies, and will afflict them that afflict thee.
Quod si audieris vocem ejus, et feceris omnia quae loquor, inimicus ero inimicis tuis, et affligam affligentes te.
23 And my angel shall go before thee, and shall bring thee in unto the Amorrhite, and the Hethite, and the Pherezite, and the Chanaanite, and the Hevite, and the Jebusite, whom I will destroy.
Praecedetque te angelus meus, et introducet te ad Amorrhaeum, et Hethaeum, et Pherezaeum, Chananaeumque, et Hevaeum, et Jebusaeum, quos ego conteram.
24 Thou shalt not adore their gods, nor serve them. Thou shalt not do their works, but shalt destroy them, and break their statues.
Non adorabis deos eorum, nec coles eos : non facies opera eorum, sed destrues eos, et confringes statuas eorum.
25 And you shall serve the Lord your God, that I may bless your bread and your waters, and may take away sickness from the midst of thee.
Servietisque Domino Deo vestro, ut benedicam panibus tuis et aquis, et auferam infirmitatem de medio tui.
26 There shall not be one fruitless nor barren in thy land: I will fill the number of thy days.
Non erit infoecunda, nec sterilis in terra tua : numerum dierum tuorum implebo.
27 I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come: and will turn the backs of all thy enemies before thee.
Terrorem meum mittam in praecursum tuum, et occidam omnem populum, ad quem ingredieris : cunctorumque inimicorum tuorum coram te terga vertam :
28 Sending out hornets before, that shall drive away the Hevite, and the Chanaanite, and the Hethite, before thou come in.
emittens crabrones prius, qui fugabunt Hevaeum, et Chananaeum, et Hethaeum, antequam introeas.
29 I will not cast them out from thy face in one year: lest the land be brought into a wilderness, and the beasts multiply against thee.
Non ejiciam eos a facie tua anno uno : ne terra in solitudinem redigatur, et crescant contra te bestiae.
30 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, till thou be increased, and dost possess the land.
Paulatim expellam eos de conspectu tuo, donec augearis, et possideas terram.
31 And I will set thy bounds from the Red Sea to the sea of the Palestines, and from the desert to the river: I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hands, and will drive them out from before you.
Ponam autem terminos tuos a mari Rubro usque ad mare Palaestinorum, et a deserto usque ad fluvium : tradam in manibus vestris habitatores terrae, et ejiciam eos de conspectu vestro.
32 Thou shalt not enter into league with them, nor with their gods.
Non inibis cum eis foedus, nec cum diis eorum.
33 Let them not dwell in thy land, lest perhaps they make thee sin against me, if thou serve their gods: which undoubtedly will be a scandal to thee.
Non habitent in terra tua, ne forte peccare te faciant in me, si servieris diis eorum : quod tibi certe erit in scandalum.
