The three principal solemnities to be observed: just judges to be appointed in every city: all occasions of idolatry to be avoided.
1 Observe the month of new corn, which is the first of the spring, that thou mayst celebrate the phase to the Lord thy God: because in this month the Lord thy God brought thee out of Egypt by night.
Observa mensem novarum frugum, et verni primum temporis, ut facias Phase Domino Deo tuo : quoniam in isto mense eduxit te Dominus Deus tuus de Aegypto nocte.
2 And thou shalt sacrifice the phase to the Lord thy God, of sheep, and of oxen, in the place which the Lord thy God shall choose, that his name may dwell there.
Immolabisque Phase Domino Deo tuo de ovibus, et de bobus, in loco quem elegerit Dominus Deus tuus, ut habitet nomen ejus ibi.
3 Thou shalt not eat with it leavened bread: seven days shalt thou eat without leaven, the bread of affliction, because thou camest out of Egypt in fear: that thou mayst remember the day of thy coming out of Egypt, all the days of thy life.
Non comedes in eo panem fermentatum : septem diebus comedes absque fermento afflictionis panem, quoniam in pavore egressus es de Aegypto : ut memineris diei egressionis tuae de Aegypto, omnibus diebus vitae tuae.
4 No leaven shall be seen in all thy coasts for seven days, neither shall any of the flesh of that which was sacrificed the first day in the evening remain until morning.
Non apparebit fermentum in omnibus terminis tuis septem diebus, et non remanebit de carnibus ejus, quod immolatum est vespere in die primo, usque mane.
5 Thou mayst not immolate the phase in any one of thy cities, which the Lord thy God will give thee:
Non poteris immolare Phase in qualibet urbium tuarum, quas Dominus Deus tuus daturus est tibi,
6 But in the place which the Lord thy God shall choose, that his name may dwell there: thou shalt immolate the phase in the evening, at the going down of the sun, at which time thou camest out of Egypt.
sed in loco quem elegerit Dominus Deus tuus, ut habitet nomen ejus ibi : immolabis Phase vespere ad solis occasum, quando egressus es de Aegypto.
7 And thou shalt dress, and eat it in the place which the Lord thy God shall choose, and in the morning rising up thou shalt go into thy dwellings.
Et coques, et comedes in loco quem elegerit Dominus Deus tuus, maneque consurgens vades in tabernacula tua.
8 Six days shalt thou eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day, because it is the assembly of the Lord thy God, thou shalt do no work.
Sex diebus comedes azyma : et in die septima, quia collecta est Domini Dei tui, non facies opus.
9 Thou shalt number unto thee seven weeks from that day, wherein thou didst put the sickle to the corn.
Septem hebdomadas numerabis tibi ab ea die qua falcem in segetem miseris.
10 And thou shalt celebrate the festival of weeks to the Lord thy God, a voluntary oblation of thy hand, which thou shalt offer according to the blessing of the Lord thy God.
Et celebraris diem festum hebdomadarum Domino Deo tuo, oblationem spontaneam manus tuae, quam offeres juxta benedictionem Domini Dei tui :
11 And thou shalt feast before the Lord thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger and the fatherless, and the widow, who abide with you: in the place which the Lord thy God shall choose, that his name may dwell there:
et epulaberis coram Domino Deo tuo, tu, filius tuus et filia tua, servus tuus et ancilla tua, et Levites qui est intra portas tuas, advena ac pupillus et vidua, qui morantur vobiscum : in loco quem elegerit Dominus Deus tuus, ut habitet nomen ejus ibi.
12 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a servant in Egypt: and thou shalt keep and do the things that are commanded.
Et recordaberis quoniam servus fueris in Aegypto : custodiesque ac facies quae praecepta sunt.
13 Thou shalt celebrate the solemnity also of tabernacles seven days, when thou hast gathered in thy fruit of the barnfloor and of the winepress.
Solemnitatem quoque tabernaculorum celebrabis per septem dies, quando collegeris de area et torculari fruges tuas :
14 And thou shalt make merry in thy festival time, thou, thy son, and thy daughter, thy manservant, and thy maidservant, the Levite also and the stranger, and the fatherless and the widow that are within thy gates.
et epulaberis in festivitate tua, tu, filius tuus et filia, servus tuus et ancilla, Levites quoque et advena, pupillus et vidua qui intra portas tuas sunt.
15 Seven days shalt thou celebrate feasts to the Lord thy God in the place which the Lord shall choose: and the Lord thy God will bless thee in all thy fruits, and in every work of thy hands, and thou shalt be in joy.
Septem diebus Domino Deo tuo festa celebrabis in loco quem elegerit Dominus : benedicetque tibi Dominus Deus tuus in cunctis frugibus tuis, et in omni opere manuum tuarum, erisque in laetitia.
16 Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the Lord thy God in the place which he shall choose: in the feast of unleavened bread, in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles. No one shall appear with his hands empty before the Lord:
Tribus vicibus per annum apparebit omne masculinum tuum in conspectu Domini Dei tui in loco quem elegerit : in solemnitate azymorum, in solemnitate hebdomadarum, et in solemnitate tabernaculorum. Non apparebit ante Dominum vacuus :
17 But every one shall offer according to what he hath, according to the blessing of the Lord his God, which he shall give him.
sed offeret unusquisque secundum quod habuerit juxta benedictionem Domini Dei sui, quam dederit ei.
18 Thou shalt appoint judges and magistrates in all thy gates, which the Lord thy God shall give thee, in all thy tribes: that they may judge the people with just judgment,
Judices et magistros constitues in omnibus portis tuis, quas Dominus Deus tuus dederit tibi, per singulas tribus tuas : ut judicent populum justo judicio,
19 And not go aside to either part. Thou shalt not accept person nor gifts: for gifts blind the eyes of the wise, and change the words of the just.
nec in alteram partem declinent. Non accipies personam, nec munera : quia munera excaecant oculos sapientum, et mutant verba justorum.
20 Thou shalt follow justly after that which is just: that thou mayst live and possess the land, which the Lord thy God shall give thee.
Juste quod justum est persequeris : ut vivas, et possideas terram, quam Dominus Deus tuus dederit tibi.
21 Thou shalt plant no grove, nor any tree near the altar of the Lord thy God:
Non plantabis lucum, et omnem arborem juxta altare Domini Dei tui.
22 Neither shalt thou make nor set up to thyself a statue: which things the Lord thy God hateth.
Nec facies tibi, neque constitues statuam : quae odit Dominus Deus tuus.
