Exodus

The Second Book of Moses, called

1:1 Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which
came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.
1:2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,
1:3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,
1:4 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
1:5 And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were
seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.
1:6 And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that
generation.
1:7 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased
abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the
land was filled with them.
1:8 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not
Joseph.
1:9 And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the
children of Israel are more and mightier than we:
1:10 Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply,
and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they
join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get
them up out of the land.
1:11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict
them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure
cities, Pithom and Raamses.
1:12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied
and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of
Israel.
1:13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with
rigour:
1:14 And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in
morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the
field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was
with rigour.
1:15 And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of
which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the
other Puah:
1:16 And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the
Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son,
then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she
shall live.
1:17 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of
Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.
1:18 And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said
unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men
children alive?
1:19 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew
women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively,
and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.
1:20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people
multiplied, and waxed very mighty.
1:21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that
he made them houses.
1:22 And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that
is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye
shall save alive.
2:1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to
wife a daughter of Levi.
2:2 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw
him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.
2:3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an
ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and
put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the
river's brink.
2:4 And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to
him.
2:5 And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at
the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side;
and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to
fetch it.
2:6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and,
behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said,
This is one of the Hebrews' children.
2:7 Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and
call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse
the child for thee?
2:8 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went
and called the child's mother.
2:9 And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away,
and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the
woman took the child, and nursed it.
2:10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's
daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses:
and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.
2:11 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown,
that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their
burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his
brethren.
2:12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that
there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the
sand.
2:13 And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the
Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong,
Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?
2:14 And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us?
intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And
Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.
2:15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses.
But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land
of Midian: and he sat down by a well.
2:16 Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came
and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their
father's flock.
2:17 And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood
up and helped them, and watered their flock.
2:18 And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is
it that ye are come so soon to day?
2:19 And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of
the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered
the flock.
2:20 And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is
it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat
bread.
2:21 And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave
Moses Zipporah his daughter.
2:22 And she bare him a son, and he called his name Gershom:
for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.
2:23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of
Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the
bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by
reason of the bondage.
2:24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his
covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
2:25 And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had
respect unto them.
3:1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the
priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the
desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
3:2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of
fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold,
the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
3:3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great
sight, why the bush is not burnt.
3:4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God
called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses,
Moses. And he said, Here am I.
3:5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from
off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy
ground.
3:6 Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of
Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid
his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
3:7 And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my
people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason
of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;
3:8 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the
Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good
land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto
the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the
Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the
Jebusites.
3:9 Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is
come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the
Egyptians oppress them.
3:10 Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that
thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of
Egypt.
3:11 And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto
Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel
out of Egypt?
3:12 And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall
be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast
brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon
this mountain.
3:13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the
children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your
fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What
is his name? what shall I say unto them?
3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus
shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me
unto you.
3:15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto
the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God
of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent
me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my
memorial unto all generations.
3:16 Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto
them, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of
Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely
visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt:
3:17 And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction
of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and
the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the
Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.
3:18 And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come,
thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye
shall say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with
us: and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days' journey
into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.
3:19 And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go,
no, not by a mighty hand.
3:20 And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my
wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he
will let you go.
3:21 And I will give this people favour in the sight of the
Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye
shall not go empty:
3:22 But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her
that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of
gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and
upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.
4:1 And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not
believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The
LORD hath not appeared unto thee.
4:2 And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand?
And he said, A rod.
4:3 And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the
ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.
4:4 And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take
it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and
it became a rod in his hand:
4:5 That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers,
the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,
hath appeared unto thee.
4:6 And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand
into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he
took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.
4:7 And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put
his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom,
and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.
4:8 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee,
neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will
believe the voice of the latter sign.
4:9 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also
these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou
shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the
dry land: and the water which thou takest out of the river
shall become blood upon the dry land.
4:10 And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not
eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto
thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.
4:11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or
who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have
not I the LORD?
4:12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach
thee what thou shalt say.
4:13 And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of
him whom thou wilt send.
4:14 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he
said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can
speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and
when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.
4:15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth:
and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will
teach you what ye shall do.
4:16 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall
be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou
shalt be to him instead of God.
4:17 And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou
shalt do signs.
4:18 And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law,
and said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my
brethren which are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet
alive. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.
4:19 And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian, Go, return into
Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought thy life.
4:20 And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an
ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the
rod of God in his hand.
4:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return
into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh,
which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart,
that he shall not let the people go.
4:22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD,
Israel is my son, even my firstborn:
4:23 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me:
and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son,
even thy firstborn.
4:24 And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD
met him, and sought to kill him.
4:25 Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin
of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a
bloody husband art thou to me.
4:26 So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou
art, because of the circumcision.
4:27 And the LORD said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet
Moses. And he went, and met him in the mount of God, and kissed
him.
4:28 And Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD who had sent
him, and all the signs which he had commanded him.
4:29 And Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the
elders of the children of Israel:
4:30 And Aaron spake all the words which the LORD had spoken
unto Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.
4:31 And the people believed: and when they heard that the LORD
had visited the children of Israel, and that he had looked upon
their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.
5:1 And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh,
Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they
may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.
5:2 And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his
voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let
Israel go.
5:3 And they said, The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let
us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the desert, and
sacrifice unto the LORD our God; lest he fall upon us with
pestilence, or with the sword.
5:4 And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses
and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your
burdens.
5:5 And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are
many, and ye make them rest from their burdens.
5:6 And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the
people, and their officers, saying,
5:7 Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as
heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.
5:8 And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore,
ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish ought thereof:
for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and
sacrifice to our God.
5:9 Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may
labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.
5:10 And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their
officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith
Pharaoh, I will not give you straw.
5:11 Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of
your work shall be diminished.
5:12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land
of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.
5:13 And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your
works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw.
5:14 And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's
taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded,
Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both
yesterday and to day, as heretofore?
5:15 Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried
unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy
servants?
5:16 There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to
us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the
fault is in thine own people.
5:17 But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye
say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD.
5:18 Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be
given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks.
5:19 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that
they were in evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not
minish ought from your bricks of your daily task.
5:20 And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they
came forth from Pharaoh:
5:21 And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you, and judge;
because ye have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of
Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in
their hand to slay us.
5:22 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Lord, wherefore
hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that
thou hast sent me?
5:23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath
done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy
people at all.
6:1 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I
will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them
go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
6:2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the
LORD:
6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by
the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not
known to them.
6:4 And I have also established my covenant with them, to give
them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein
they were strangers.
6:5 And I have also heard the groaning of the children of
Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have
remembered my covenant.
6:6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD,
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 a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:
6:7 And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you
a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which
bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
6:8 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which
I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and
I will give it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.
6:9 And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they
hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel
bondage.
6:10 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
6:11 Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the
children of Israel go out of his land.
6:12 And Moses spake before the LORD, saying, Behold, the
children of Israel have not hearkened unto me; how then shall
Pharaoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips?
6:13 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, and gave them
a charge unto the children of Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of
Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of
Egypt.
6:14 These be the heads of their fathers' houses: The sons of
Reuben the firstborn of Israel; Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and
Carmi: these be the families of Reuben.
6:15 And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and
Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman:
these are the families of Simeon.
6:16 And these 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 an hundred thirty and seven
years.
6:17 The sons of Gershon; Libni, and Shimi, according to their
families.
6:18 And the sons of Kohath; Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and
Uzziel: and the years of the life of Kohath were an hundred
thirty and three years.
6:19 And the sons of Merari; Mahali and Mushi: these are the
families of Levi according to their generations.
6:20 And Amram took him Jochebed his father's sister to wife;
and she bare him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of
Amram were an hundred and thirty and seven years.
6:21 And the sons of Izhar; Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri.
6:22 And the sons of Uzziel; Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Zithri.
6:23 And Aaron took him Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab, sister
of Naashon, to wife; and she bare him Nadab, and Abihu,
Eleazar, and Ithamar.
6:24 And the sons of Korah; Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph:
these are the families of the Korhites.
6:25 And Eleazar Aaron's son took him one of the daughters of
Putiel to wife; and she bare him Phinehas: these are the
heads of the fathers of the Levites according to their
families.
6:26 These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom the LORD said,
Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt
according to their armies.
6:27 These are they which spake to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to
bring out the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that
Moses and Aaron.
6:28 And it came to pass on the day when the LORD spake unto
Moses in the land of Egypt,
6:29 That the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, I am the LORD:
speak thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say unto thee.
6:30 And Moses said before the LORD, Behold, I am of
uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?
7:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to
Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.
7:2 Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy
brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of
Israel out of his land.
7:3 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and
my wonders in the land of Egypt.
7:4 But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my
hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people
the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great
judgments.
7:5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I
stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children
of Israel from among them.
7:6 And Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded them, so did
they.
7:7 And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and
three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.
7:8 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
7:9 When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle
for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast
it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.
7:10 And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so
as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before
Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.
7:11 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers:
now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with
their enchantments.
7:12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became
serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.
7:13 And he hardened Pharaoh's heart, that he hearkened not unto
them; as the LORD had said.
7:14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh's heart is
hardened, he refuseth to let the people go.
7:15 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; lo, he goeth out unto
the water; and thou shalt stand by the river's brink against he
come; and the rod which was turned to a serpent shalt thou take
in thine hand.
7:16 And thou shalt say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews
hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may
serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest
not hear.
7:17 Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am
the LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine
hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall
be turned to blood.
7:18 And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the
river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of
the water of the river.
7:19 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy
rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon
their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and
upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and
that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt,
both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.
7:20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he
lifted up the rod, and smote 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.
7:21 And the fish that was in the river died; and the river
stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the
river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.
7:22 And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments:
and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto
them; as the LORD had said.
7:23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he
set his heart to this also.
7:24 And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for
water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the
river.
7:25 And seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had
smitten the river.
8:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto
him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve
me.
8:2 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite
all thy borders with frogs:
8:3 And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which
shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber,
and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon
thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs:
8:4 And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy
people, and upon all thy servants.
8:5 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth
thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and
over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of
Egypt.
8:6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt;
and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.
8:7 And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and
brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.
8:8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat
the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my
people; and I will let the people go, that they may do
sacrifice unto the LORD.
8:9 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I
intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to
destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may
remain in the river only?
8:10 And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to
thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto
the LORD our God.
8:11 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses,
and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain
in the river only.
8:12 And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried
unto the LORD because of the frogs which he had brought against
Pharaoh.
8:13 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and the
frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of
the fields.
8:14 And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land
stank.
8:15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened
his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.
8:16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out
thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become
lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
8:17 And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his
rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in
man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice
throughout all the land of Egypt.
8:18 And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring
forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man,
and upon beast.
8:19 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger
of God: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened not
unto them; as the LORD had said.
8:20 And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning,
and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and
say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they
may serve me.
8:21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will
send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and
upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the
Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the
ground whereon they are.
8:22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which
my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to
the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of
the earth.
8:23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people:
to morrow shall this sign be.
8:24 And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of
flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants'
houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted
by reason of the swarm of flies.
8:25 And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go
ye, sacrifice to your God in the land.
8:26 And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall
sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the LORD our God:
lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before
their eyes, and will they not stone us?
8:27 We will go three days' journey into the wilderness, and
sacrifice to the LORD our God, as he shall command us.
8:28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice
to the LORD your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go
very far away: intreat for me.
8:29 And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will
intreat the LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from
Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but
let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the
people go to sacrifice to the LORD.
8:30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.
8:31 And the LORD 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.
8:32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither
would he let the people go.
9:1 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell
him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go,
that they may serve me.
9:2 For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them
still,
9:3 Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon thy cattle which is
in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels,
upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very
grievous murrain.
9:4 And the LORD shall sever between the cattle of Israel and
the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that
is the children's of Israel.
9:5 And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the
LORD shall do this thing in the land.
9:6 And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the
cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of
Israel died not one.
9:7 And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the
cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was
hardened, and he did not let the people go.
9:8 And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you
handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it
toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.
9:9 And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and
shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon
beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.
9:10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before
Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became
a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.
9:11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of
the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all
the Egyptians.
9:12 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he
hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.
9:13 And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning,
and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD
God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
9:14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine
heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou
mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.
9:15 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee
and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from
the earth.
9:16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up,
for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be
declared throughout all the earth.
9:17 As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou
wilt not let them go?
9:18 Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a
very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the
foundation thereof even until now.
9:19 Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that
thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which
shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the
hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die.
9:20 He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of
Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:
9:21 And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his
servants and his cattle in the field.
9:22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand
toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt,
upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field,
throughout the land of Egypt.
9:23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the
LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the
ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
9:24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very
grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of
Egypt since it became a nation.
9:25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all
that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote
every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.
9:26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel
were, was there no hail.
9:27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said
unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous,
and I and my people are wicked.
9:28 Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no
more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and
ye shall stay no longer.
9:29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the
city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the
thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that
thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD'S.
9:30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not
yet fear the LORD God.
9:31 And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley
was in the ear, and the flax was bolled.
9:32 But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were
not grown up.
9:33 And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread
abroad his hands unto the LORD: and the thunders and hail
ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth.
9:34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the
thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his
heart, he and his servants.
9:35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let
the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by Moses.
10:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I
have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I
might shew these my signs before him:
10:2 And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of
thy son's son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my
signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I
am the LORD.
10:3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto
him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou
refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they
may serve me.
10:4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow
will I bring the locusts into thy coast:
10:5 And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot
be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of
that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail,
and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the
field:
10:6 And they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy
servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither
thy fathers, nor thy fathers' fathers have seen, since the day
that they were upon the earth unto this day. And he turned
himself, and went out from Pharaoh.
10:7 And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this
man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the
LORD their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?
10:8 And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he
said unto them, Go, serve the LORD your God: but who are
they that shall go?
10:9 And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old,
with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with
our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the LORD.
10:10 And he said unto them, Let the LORD be so with you, as I
will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil
is before you.
10:11 Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the LORD; for
that ye did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh's
presence.
10:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over
the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon
the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all
that the hail hath left.
10:13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt,
and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day,
and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind
brought the locusts.
10:14 And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and
rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they;
before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after
them shall be such.
10:15 For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the
land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and
all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there
remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of
the field, through all the land of Egypt.
10:16 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he
said, I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you.
10:17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once,
and intreat the LORD your God, that he may take away from me
this death only.
10:18 And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.
10:19 And the LORD turned a mighty strong west wind, which took
away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there
remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.
10:20 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would
not let the children of Israel go.
10:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand
toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of
Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.
10:22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and
there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
10:23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place
for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in
their dwellings.
10:24 And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the
LORD; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your
little ones also go with you.
10:25 And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and
burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the LORD our God.
10:26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof
be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the LORD our
God; and we know not with what we must serve the LORD, until we
come thither.
10:27 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not
let them go.
10:28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to
thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my
face thou shalt die.
10:29 And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face
again no more.
11:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague
more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you
go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust
you out hence altogether.
11:2 Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man
borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour,
jewels of silver, and jewels of gold.
11:3 And the LORD gave the people favour 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.
11:4 And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I
go out into the midst of Egypt:
11:5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from
the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even
unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the
mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.
11:6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of
Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any
more.
11:7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog
move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how
that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and
Israel.
11:8 And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow
down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the
people that follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he
went out from Pharaoh in a great anger.
11:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken
unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of
Egypt.
11:10 And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh:
and the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let
the children of Israel go out of his land.
12:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of
Egypt, saying,
12:2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it
shall be the first month of the year to you.
12:3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In
the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man
a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for
an house:
12:4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him
and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to
the number of the souls; every man according to his eating
shall make your count for the lamb.
12:5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first
year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
12:6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the
same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of
Israel shall kill it in the evening.
12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the
two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses,
wherein they shall eat it.
12:8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with
fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they
shall eat it.
12:9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast
with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance
thereof.
12:10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning;
and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn
with fire.
12:11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your
shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall
eat it in haste: it is the LORD'S passover.
12:12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and
will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and
beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute
judgment: I am the LORD.
12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses
where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you,
and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I
smite the land of Egypt.
12:14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye
shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations;
ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.
12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first
day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever
eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day,
that soul shall be cut off from Israel.
12:16 And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation,
and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to
you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which
every man must eat, that only may be done of you.
12:17 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for
in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land
of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your
generations by an ordinance for ever.
12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month
at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and
twentieth day of the month at even.
12:19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses:
for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul
shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be
a stranger, or born in the land.
12:20 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations
shall ye eat unleavened bread.
12:21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said
unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your
families, and kill the passover.
12:22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the
blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two
side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of
you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.
12:23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and
when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side
posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer
the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
12:24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee
and to thy sons for ever.
12:25 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land
which the LORD will give you, according as he hath promised,
that ye shall keep this service.
12:26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say
unto you, What mean ye by this service?
12:27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD'S
passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel
in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our
houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.
12:28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the LORD
had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
12:29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all
the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of
Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the
captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of
cattle.
12:30 And Pharaoh 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.
12:31 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise
up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the
children of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.
12:32 Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and
be gone; and bless me also.
12:33 And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they
might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We
be all dead men.
12:34 And the people took their dough before it was leavened,
their kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon
their shoulders.
12:35 And the children of Israel did according to the word of
Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and
jewels of gold, and raiment:
12:36 And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the
Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they
required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.
12:37 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to
Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men,
beside children.
12:38 And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks,
and herds, even very much cattle.
12:39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they
brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because
they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had
they prepared for themselves any victual.
12:40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in
Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.
12:41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and
thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all
the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.
12:42 It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for
bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night
of the LORD to be observed of all the children of Israel in
their generations.
12:43 And the LORD said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the
ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:
12:44 But every man's servant that is bought for money, when
thou hast circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.
12:45 A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.
12:46 In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth
ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye
break a bone thereof.
12:47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.
12:48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep
the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and
then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that
is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat
thereof.
12:49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the
stranger that sojourneth among you.
12:50 Thus did all the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded
Moses and Aaron, so did they.
12:51 And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the LORD did
bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their
armies.
13:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
13:2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the
womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast:
it is mine.
13:3 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which
ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by
strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place:
there shall no leavened bread be eaten.
13:4 This day came ye out in the month Abib.
13:5 And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the
land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and
the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers
to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, that thou
shalt keep this service in this month.
13:6 Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the
seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD.
13:7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall
no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be
leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.
13:8 And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is
done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came
forth out of Egypt.
13:9 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and
for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be
in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee
out of Egypt.
13:10 Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season
from year to year.
13:11 And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the
land of the Canaanites, as he sware unto thee and to thy
fathers, and shall give it thee,
13:12 That thou shalt set apart unto the LORD all that openeth
the matrix, and every firstling that cometh of a beast which
thou hast; the males shall be the LORD'S.
13:13 And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a
lamb; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break his
neck: and all the firstborn of man among thy children shalt
thou redeem.
13:14 And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come,
saying, What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, By
strength of hand the LORD brought us out from Egypt, from the
house of bondage:
13:15 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go,
that the LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both
the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I
sacrifice to the LORD all that openeth the matrix, being males;
but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.
13:16 And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for
frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the LORD
brought us forth out of Egypt.
13:17 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go,
that God led them not through the way of the land of the
Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest
peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they
return to Egypt:
13:18 But God led the people about, through the way of the
wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up
harnessed out of the land of Egypt.
13:19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had
straitly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely
visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you.
13:20 And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in
Etham, in the edge of the wilderness.
13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a
cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire,
to give them light; to go by day and night:
13:22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the
pillar of fire by night, from before the people.
14:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
14:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and
encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over
against Baalzephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.
14:3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are
entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.
14:4 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that he shall follow
after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all
his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD. And
they did so.
14:5 And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and
the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the
people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let
Israel go from serving us?
14:6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with
him:
14:7 And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the
chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of them.
14:8 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt,
and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children
of Israel went out with an high hand.
14:9 But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and
chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and
overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before
Baalzephon.
14:10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted
up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them;
and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out
unto the LORD.
14:11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves
in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness?
wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out
of Egypt?
14:12 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt,
saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it
had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we
should die in the wilderness.
14:13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still,
and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to
day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see
them again no more for ever.
14:14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your
peace.
14:15 And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto
me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:
14:16 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over
the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on
dry ground through the midst of the sea.
14:17 And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians,
and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon
Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his
horsemen.
14:18 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I
have gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon
his horsemen.
14:19 And the angel of God, which went before the camp of
Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the
cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them:
14:20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp
of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it
gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near
the other all the night.
14:21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the
LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that
night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were
divided.
14:22 And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea
upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them
on their right hand, and on their left.
14:23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the
midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots,
and his horsemen.
14:24 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD
looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of
fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,
14:25 And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them
heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face
of Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the
Egyptians.
14:26 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over
the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians,
upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.
14:27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the
sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the
Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians
in the midst of the sea.
14:28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the
horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea
after them; there remained not so much as one of them.
14:29 But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the
midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on
their right hand, and on their left.
14:30 Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the
Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea
shore.
14:31 And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the
Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the
LORD, and his servant Moses.
15:1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto
the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he
hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he
thrown into the sea.
15:2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my
salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an
habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.
15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
15:4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea:
his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
15:5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as
a stone.
15:6 Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy
right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.
15:7 And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast
overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth
thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
15:8 And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered
together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths
were congealed in the heart of the sea.
15:9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will
divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will
draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
15:10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they
sank as lead in the mighty waters.
15:11 Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is
like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing
wonders?
15:12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed
them.
15:13 Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou
hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy
holy habitation.
15:14 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take
hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.
15:15 Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of
Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants
of Canaan shall melt away.
15:16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of
thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people
pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast
purchased.
15:17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain
of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast
made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which
thy hands have established.
15:18 The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.
15:19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and
with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the
waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on
dry land in the midst of the sea.
15:20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a
timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with
timbrels and with dances.
15:21 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath
triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown
into the sea.
15:22 So Moses brought Israel 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.
15:23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the
waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of
it was called Marah.
15:24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall
we drink?
15:25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a
tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were
made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance,
and there he proved them,
15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of
the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight,
and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his
statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I
have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that
healeth thee.
15:27 And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water,
and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by
the waters.
16:1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the
congregation of the children of Israel came unto 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.
16:2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel
murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:
16:3 And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we
had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we
sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full;
for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this
whole assembly with hunger.
16:4 Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread
from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a
certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they
will walk in my law, or no.
16:5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall
prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as
much as they gather daily.
16:6 And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel,
At even, then ye shall know that the LORD hath brought you out
from the land of Egypt:
16:7 And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the
LORD; for that he heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and
what are we, that ye murmur against us?
16:8 And Moses said, This shall be, when the LORD shall give
you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to
the full; for that the LORD heareth your murmurings which ye
murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are
not against us, but against the LORD.
16:9 And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation
of the children of Israel, Come near before the LORD: for he
hath heard your murmurings.
16:10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole
congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward
the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in
the cloud.
16:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
16:12 I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel:
speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the
morning ye shall be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I
am the LORD your God.
16:13 And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and
covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about
the host.
16:14 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the
face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as
small as the hoar frost on the ground.
16:15 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to
another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And
Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath
given you to eat.
16:16 This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather
of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man,
according to the number of your persons; take ye every man
for them which are in his tents.
16:17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some
more, some less.
16:18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered
much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack;
they gathered every man according to his eating.
16:19 And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.
16:20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of
them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and
stank: and Moses was wroth with them.
16:21 And they gathered it every morning, every man according to
his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.
16:22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered
twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the
rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.
16:23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath
said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the
LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that
ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to
be kept until the morning.
16:24 And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and
it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein.
16:25 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath
unto the LORD: to day ye shall not find it in the field.
16:26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day,
which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.
16:27 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the
people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.
16:28 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep
my commandments and my laws?
16:29 See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath,
therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days;
abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place
on the seventh day.
16:30 So the people rested on the seventh day.
16:31 And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and
it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was
like wafers made with honey.
16:32 And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD
commandeth, Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations;
that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the
wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.
16:33 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer
full of manna therein, and lay it up before the LORD, to be
kept for your generations.
16:34 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before
the Testimony, to be kept.
16:35 And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years,
until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until
they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.
16:36 Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.
17:1 And all the congregation of the children of Israel
journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys,
according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitched in
Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.
17:2 Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give
us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide
ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the LORD?
17:3 And the people thirsted there for water; and the people
murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that
thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our
children and our cattle with thirst?
17:4 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, What shall I do unto
this people? they be almost ready to stone me.
17:5 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and
take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith
thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.
17:6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in
Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come
water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in
the sight of the elders of Israel.
17:7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah,
because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because
they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?
17:8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.
17:9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out,
fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the
hill with the rod of God in mine hand.
17:10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with
Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the
hill.
17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that
Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek
prevailed.
17:12 But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and
put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur
stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on
the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down
of the sun.
17:13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge
of the sword.
17:14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial
in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will
utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.
17:15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it
Jehovahnissi:
17:16 For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD
will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
18:1 When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father in law,
heard of all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his
people, and that the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt;
18:2 Then Jethro, Moses' father in law, took Zipporah, Moses'
wife, after he had sent her back,
18:3 And her two sons; of which the name of the one was
Gershom; for he said, I have been an alien in a strange land:
18:4 And the name of the other was Eliezer; for the God of my
father, said he, was mine help, and delivered me from the
sword of Pharaoh:
18:5 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, came with his sons and
his wife unto Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at
the mount of God:
18:6 And he said unto Moses, I thy father in law Jethro am come
unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her.
18:7 And Moses went out to meet his father in law, and did
obeisance, and kissed him; and they asked each other of their
welfare; and they came into the tent.
18:8 And Moses told his father in law all that the LORD had done
unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, and all
the travail that had come upon them by the way, and how the
LORD delivered them.
18:9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the LORD had
done to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hand of the
Egyptians.
18:10 And Jethro said, Blessed be the LORD, who hath delivered
you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of
Pharaoh, who hath delivered the people from under the hand of
the Egyptians.
18:11 Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods: for
in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.
18:12 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, took a burnt offering
and sacrifices for God: and Aaron came, and all the elders of
Israel, to eat bread with Moses' father in law before God.
18:13 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge
the people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto
the evening.
18:14 And when Moses' father in law saw all that he did to the
people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the
people? why sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people
stand by thee from morning unto even?
18:15 And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people
come unto me to enquire of God:
18:16 When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge
between one and another, and I do make them know the statutes
of God, and his laws.
18:17 And Moses' father in law said unto him, The thing that
thou doest is not good.
18:18 Thou 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.
18:19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and
God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward,
that thou mayest bring the causes unto God:
18:20 And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt
shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that
they must do.
18:21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able
men, such as fear God, men 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:
18:22 And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall
be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but
every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for
thyself, and they shall bear the burden with thee.
18:23 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 their place in peace.
18:24 So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and
did all that he had said.
18:25 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.
18:26 And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes
they brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged
themselves.
18:27 And Moses let his father in law depart; and he went his
way into his own land.
19:1 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.
19:2 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 the mount.
19:3 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him
out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house
of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;
19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I
bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.
19:5 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 all the earth is mine:
19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy
nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the
children of Israel.
19:7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and
laid before their faces all these words which the LORD
commanded him.
19:8 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.
19:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a
thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee,
and believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the
people unto the LORD.
19:10 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and
sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their
clothes,
19:11 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.
19:12 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 toucheth the mount
shall be surely put to death:
19:13 There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be
stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall
not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to
the mount.
19:14 And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and
sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes.
19:15 And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third
day: come not at your wives.
19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that
there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the
mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all
the people that was in the camp trembled.
19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet
with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the
LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended
as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed
louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a
voice.
19:20 And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the
mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount;
and Moses went up.
19:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people,
lest they break through unto the LORD to gaze, and many of them
perish.
19:22 And let the priests also, which come near to the LORD,
sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them.
19:23 And Moses said unto the LORD, The people cannot come up to
mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about
the mount, and sanctify it.
19:24 And the LORD said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou
shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the
priests and the people break through to come up unto the LORD,
lest he break forth upon them.
19:25 So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them.
20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,
20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the
land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any
likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is
in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the
earth:
20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:
for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the
iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and
fourth generation of them that hate me;
20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and
keep my commandments.
20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain;
for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name
in vain.
20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God:
in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy
daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle,
nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea,
and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day:
wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be
long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
20:13 Thou shalt not kill.
20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
20:15 Thou shalt not steal.
20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
20:17 Thou 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.
20:18 And all the people saw the thunderings, 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.
20:19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will
hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
20:20 And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come
to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that
ye sin not.
20:21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto
the thick darkness where God was.
20:22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the
children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you
from heaven.
20:23 Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye
make unto you gods of gold.
20:24 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt
sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings,
thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name
I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee.
20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not
build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it,
thou hast polluted it.
20:26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that
thy nakedness be not discovered thereon.
21:1 Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before
them.
21:2 If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve:
and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
21:3 If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he
were married, then his wife shall go out with him.
21:4 If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him
sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her
master's, and he shall go out by himself.
21:5 And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my
wife, and my children; I will not go out free:
21:6 Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall
also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his
master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall
serve him for ever.
21:7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she
shall not go out as the menservants do.
21:8 If she 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.
21:9 And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal
with her after the manner of daughters.
21:10 If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and
her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.
21:11 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go
out free without money.
21:12 He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put
to death.
21:13 And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into
his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall
flee.
21:14 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.
21:15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be
surely put to death.
21:16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be
found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
21:17 And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall
surely be put to death.
21:18 And if men strive together, and one smite another with a
stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his
bed:
21:19 If he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then
shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the
loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly
healed.
21:20 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod,
and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished.
21:21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not
be punished: for he is his money.
21:22 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 pay as the judges determine.
21:23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life
for life,
21:24 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for
foot,
21:25 Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
21:26 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.
21:27 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.
21:28 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.
21:29 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.
21:30 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.
21:31 Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter,
according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.
21:32 If the ox shall push a manservant or a maidservant; he
shall give unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the
ox shall be stoned.
21:33 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;
21:34 The owner of the pit shall make it good, and give
money unto the owner of them; and the dead beast shall be
his.
21:35 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.
21:36 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.
22:1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or
sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep
for a sheep.
22:2 If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he
die, there shall no blood be shed for him.
22:3 If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed
for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have
nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.
22:4 If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether
it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.
22:5 If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and
shall put in his beast, and shall feed in another man's field;
of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own
vineyard, shall he make restitution.
22:6 If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the stacks
of corn, or the standing corn, or the field, be consumed
therewith; he that kindled the fire shall surely make
restitution.
22:7 If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to
keep, and it be stolen out of the man's house; if the thief be
found, let him pay double.
22:8 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.
22:9 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.
22:10 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:
22:11 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, and he shall not make
it good.
22:12 And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution
unto the owner thereof.
22:13 If it be torn in pieces, then let him bring it for
witness, and he shall not make good that which was torn.
22:14 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.
22:15 But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make
it good: if it be an hired thing, it came for his hire.
22:16 And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie
with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.
22:17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he
shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.
22:18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.
22:19 Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.
22:20 He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the LORD
only, he shall be utterly destroyed.
22:21 Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye
were strangers in the land of Egypt.
22:22 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.
22:23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto
me, I will surely hear their cry;
22:24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the
sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children
fatherless.
22:25 If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by
thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou
lay upon him usury.
22:26 If thou at all take thy neighbour's raiment to pledge,
thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:
22:27 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 crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.
22:28 Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy
people.
22:29 Thou shalt not delay to offer the first of thy ripe
fruits, and of thy liquors: the firstborn of thy sons shalt
thou give unto me.
22:30 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.
22:31 And ye shall be holy men unto me: neither shall ye eat
any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; ye shall
cast it to the dogs.
23:1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand
with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
23:2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither
shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest
judgment:
23:3 Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.
23:4 If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his ass going astray, thou
shalt surely bring it back to him again.
23:5 If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his
burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt surely
help with him.
23:6 Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.
23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and
righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.
23:8 And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the
wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.
23:9 Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the
heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of
Egypt.
23:10 And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in
the fruits thereof:
23:11 But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie
still; that the poor of thy people may eat: and what they leave
the beasts of the field shall eat. In like manner thou shalt
deal with thy vineyard, and with thy oliveyard.
23:12 Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day
thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the
son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.
23:13 And in all things that I have said unto you be
circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods,
neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.
23:14 Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.
23:15 Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt
eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the
time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out
from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)
23:16 And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours,
which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of
ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast
gathered in thy labours out of the field.
23:17 Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before
the Lord GOD.
23:18 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with
leavened bread; neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain
until the morning.
23:19 The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring
into the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid
in his mother's milk.
23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the
way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he
will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.
23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I
speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an
adversary unto thine adversaries.
23:23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in
unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and
the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut
them off.
23:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor
do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them,
and quite break down their images.
23:25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless
thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from
the midst of thee.
23:26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in
thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.
23:27 I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the
people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine
enemies turn their backs unto thee.
23:28 And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out
the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.
23:29 I will not drive them out from before thee in one year;
lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field
multiply against thee.
23:30 By little and little I will drive them out from before
thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.
23:31 And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the
sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for
I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and
thou shalt drive them out before thee.
23:32 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their
gods.
23:33 They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin
against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a
snare unto thee.
24:1 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and
Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel;
and worship ye afar off.
24:2 And Moses alone shall come near the LORD: but they shall
not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.
24:3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the
LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with
one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said
will we do.
24:4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up
early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and
twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
24:5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which
offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen
unto the LORD.
24:6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons;
and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
24:7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the
audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath
said will we do, and be obedient.
24:8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people,
and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath
made with you concerning all these words.
24:9 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and
seventy of the elders of Israel:
24:10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his
feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it
were the body of heaven in his clearness.
24:11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not
his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.
24:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the
mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and
a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest
teach them.
24:13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went
up into the mount of God.
24:14 And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until
we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with
you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them.
24:15 And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the
mount.
24:16 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the
cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto
Moses out of the midst of the cloud.
24:17 And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like
devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the
children of Israel.
24:18 And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up
into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty
nights.
25:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an
offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart
ye shall take my offering.
25:3 And this is the offering which ye shall take of them;
gold, and silver, and brass,
25:4 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and
goats' hair,
25:5 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim
wood,
25:6 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet
incense,
25:7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the
breastplate.
25:8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among
them.
25:9 According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of
the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof,
even so shall ye make it.
25:10 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits
and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a
half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height
thereof.
25:11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and
without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown
of gold round about.
25:12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put
them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in
the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it.
25:13 And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay
them with gold.
25:14 And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides
of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.
25:15 The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall
not be taken from it.
25:16 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I
shall give thee.
25:17 And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two
cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit
and a half the breadth thereof.
25:18 And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten
work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.
25:19 And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub
on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the
cherubims on the two ends thereof.
25:20 And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on
high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces
shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the
faces of the cherubims be.
25:21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and
in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.
25:22 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with
thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims
which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things
which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of
Israel.
25:23 Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits
shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof,
and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
25:24 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto
a crown of gold round about.
25:25 And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand breadth
round about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to the border
thereof round about.
25:26 And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the
rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof.
25:27 Over against the border shall the rings be for places of
the staves to bear the table.
25:28 And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and
overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them.
25:29 And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons
thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover
withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them.
25:30 And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me
alway.
25:31 And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of
beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his
branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of
the same.
25:32 And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three
branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three
branches of the candlestick out of the other side:
25:33 Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a
flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the
other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six
branches that come out of the candlestick.
25:34 And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like
unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers.
25:35 And there shall be a knop under two branches of the
same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop
under two branches of the same, according to the six branches
that proceed out of the candlestick.
25:36 Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all
it shall be one beaten work of pure gold.
25:37 And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they
shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over
against it.
25:38 And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall
be of pure gold.
25:39 Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all
these vessels.
25:40 And look that thou make them after their pattern, which
was shewed thee in the mount.
26:1 Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains
of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet:
with cherubims of cunning work shalt thou make them.
26:2 The length of one curtain shall be eight and twenty
cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and every
one of the curtains shall have one measure.
26:3 The five curtains shall be coupled together one to another;
and other five curtains shall be coupled one to another.
26:4 And thou shalt make loops of blue upon the edge of the one
curtain from the selvedge in the coupling; and likewise shalt
thou make in the uttermost edge of another curtain, in the
coupling of the second.
26:5 Fifty loops shalt thou make in the one curtain, and fifty
loops shalt thou make in the edge of the curtain that is in
the coupling of the second; that the loops may take hold one of
another.
26:6 And thou shalt make fifty taches of gold, and couple the
curtains together with the taches: and it shall be one
tabernacle.
26:7 And thou shalt make curtains of goats' hair to be a
covering upon the tabernacle: eleven curtains shalt thou make.
26:8 The length of one curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the
breadth of one curtain four cubits: and the eleven curtains
shall be all of one measure.
26:9 And thou shalt couple five curtains by themselves, and six
curtains by themselves, and shalt double the sixth curtain in
the forefront of the tabernacle.
26:10 And thou shalt make fifty loops on the edge of the one
curtain that is outmost in the coupling, and fifty loops in
the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.
26:11 And thou shalt make fifty taches of brass, and put the
taches into the loops, and couple the tent together, that it
may be one.
26:12 And the remnant that remaineth of the curtains of the
tent, the half curtain that remaineth, shall hang over the
backside of the tabernacle.
26:13 And a cubit on the one side, and a cubit on the other side
of that which remaineth in the length of the curtains of the
tent, it shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle on this
side and on that side, to cover it.
26:14 And thou shalt make a covering for the tent of rams'
skins dyed red, and a covering above of badgers' skins.
26:15 And thou shalt make boards for the tabernacle of shittim
wood standing up.
26:16 Ten cubits shall be the length of a board, and a cubit
and a half shall be the breadth of one board.
26:17 Two tenons shall there be in one board, set in order one
against another: thus shalt thou make for all the boards of the
tabernacle.
26:18 And thou shalt make the boards for the tabernacle, twenty
boards on the south side southward.
26:19 And thou shalt make forty sockets of silver under the
twenty boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons,
and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.
26:20 And for the second side of the tabernacle on the north
side there shall be twenty boards:
26:21 And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one
board, and two sockets under another board.
26:22 And for the sides of the tabernacle westward thou shalt
make six boards.
26:23 And two boards shalt thou make for the corners of the
tabernacle in the two sides.
26:24 And they shall be coupled together beneath, and they shall
be coupled together above the head of it unto one ring: thus
shall it be for them both; they shall be for the two corners.
26:25 And they shall be eight boards, and their sockets of
silver, sixteen sockets; two sockets under one board, and two
sockets under another board.
26:26 And thou shalt make bars of shittim wood; five for the
boards of the one side of the tabernacle,
26:27 And five bars for the boards of the other side of the
tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the side of the
tabernacle, for the two sides westward.
26:28 And the middle bar in the midst of the boards shall reach
from end to end.
26:29 And thou shalt overlay the boards with gold, and make
their rings of gold for places for the bars: and thou shalt
overlay the bars with gold.
26:30 And thou shalt rear up the tabernacle according to the
fashion thereof which was shewed thee in the mount.
26:31 And thou shalt make a vail of blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine twined linen of cunning work: with cherubims
shall it be made:
26:32 And thou shalt hang it upon four pillars of shittim wood
overlaid with gold: their hooks shall be of gold, upon the
four sockets of silver.
26:33 And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that
thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the
testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy
place and the most holy.
26:34 And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the
testimony in the most holy place.
26:35 And thou shalt set the table without the vail, and the
candlestick over against the table on the side of the
tabernacle toward the south: and thou shalt put the table on
the north side.
26:36 And thou shalt make an hanging for the door of the tent,
of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen,
wrought with needlework.
26:37 And thou shalt make for the hanging five pillars of
shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, and their hooks
shall be of gold: and thou shalt cast five sockets of brass
for them.
27:1 And thou shalt make an altar of shittim wood, five cubits
long, and five cubits broad; the altar shall be foursquare: and
the height thereof shall be three cubits.
27:2 And thou shalt make the horns of it upon the four corners
thereof: his horns shall be of the same: and thou shalt overlay
it with brass.
27:3 And thou shalt make his pans to receive his ashes, and his
shovels, and his basons, and his fleshhooks, and his firepans:
all the vessels thereof thou shalt make of brass.
27:4 And thou shalt make for it a grate of network of brass;
and upon the net shalt thou make four brasen rings in the four
corners thereof.
27:5 And thou shalt put it under the compass of the altar
beneath, that the net may be even to the midst of the altar.
27:6 And thou shalt make staves for the altar, staves of
shittim wood, and overlay them with brass.
27:7 And the staves shall be put into the rings, and the staves
shall be upon the two sides of the altar, to bear it.
27:8 Hollow with boards shalt thou make it: as it was shewed
thee in the mount, so shall they make it.
27:9 And thou shalt make the court of the tabernacle: for the
south side southward there shall be hangings for the court
of fine twined linen of an hundred cubits long for one side:
27:10 And the twenty pillars thereof and their twenty sockets
shall be of brass; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets
shall be of silver.
27:11 And likewise for the north side in length there shall be
hangings of an hundred cubits long, and his twenty pillars
and their twenty sockets of brass; the hooks of the pillars
and their fillets of silver.
27:12 And for the breadth of the court on the west side shall
be hangings of fifty cubits: their pillars ten, and their
sockets ten.
27:13 And the breadth of the court on the east side eastward
shall be fifty cubits.
27:14 The hangings of one side of the gate shall be fifteen
cubits: their pillars three, and their sockets three.
27:15 And on the other side shall be hangings fifteen
cubits: their pillars three, and their sockets three.
27:16 And for the gate of the court shall be an hanging of
twenty cubits, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine
twined linen, wrought with needlework: and their pillars
shall be four, and their sockets four.
27:17 All the pillars round about the court shall be filleted
with silver; their hooks shall be of silver, and their
sockets of brass.
27:18 The length of the court shall be an hundred cubits, and
the breadth fifty every where, and the height five cubits of
fine twined linen, and their sockets of brass.
27:19 All the vessels of the tabernacle in all the service
thereof, and all the pins thereof, and all the pins of the
court, shall be of brass.
27:20 And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they
bring thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the
lamp to burn always.
27:21 In the tabernacle of the congregation without the vail,
which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order
it from evening to morning before the LORD: it shall be a
statute for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the
children of Israel.
28:1 And take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons
with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may
minister unto me in the priest's office, even Aaron, Nadab
and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons.
28:2 And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for
glory and for beauty.
28:3 And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom
I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make
Aaron's garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto
me in the priest's office.
28:4 And these are the garments which they shall make; a
breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a
mitre, and a girdle: and they shall make holy garments for
Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto me
in the priest's office.
28:5 And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine linen.
28:6 And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, and
of purple, of scarlet, and fine twined linen, with cunning
work.
28:7 It shall have the two shoulderpieces thereof joined at the
two edges thereof; and so it shall be joined together.
28:8 And the curious girdle of the ephod, which is upon it,
shall be of the same, according to the work thereof; even of
gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined
linen.
28:9 And thou shalt take two onyx stones, and grave on them the
names of the children of Israel:
28:10 Six of their names on one stone, and the other six names
of the rest on the other stone, according to their birth.
28:11 With the work of an engraver in stone, like the
engravings of a signet, shalt thou engrave the two stones with
the names of the children of Israel: thou shalt make them to be
set in ouches of gold.
28:12 And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoulders of
the ephod for stones of memorial unto the children of Israel:
and Aaron shall bear their names before the LORD upon his two
shoulders for a memorial.
28:13 And thou shalt make ouches of gold;
28:14 And two chains of pure gold at the ends; of wreathen
work shalt thou make them, and fasten the wreathen chains to
the ouches.
28:15 And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with
cunning work; after the work of the ephod thou shalt make it;
of gold, of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and
of fine twined linen, shalt thou make it.
28:16 Foursquare it shall be being doubled; a span shall be
the length thereof, and a span shall be the breadth thereof.
28:17 And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four
rows of stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz,
and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row.
28:18 And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and
a diamond.
28:19 And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.
28:20 And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper:
they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.
28:21 And the stones shall be with the names of the children of
Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings
of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to
the twelve tribes.
28:22 And thou shalt make upon the breastplate chains at the
ends of wreathen work of pure gold.
28:23 And thou shalt make upon the breastplate two rings of
gold, and shalt put the two rings on the two ends of the
breastplate.
28:24 And thou shalt put the two wreathen chains of gold in
the two rings which are on the ends of the breastplate.
28:25 And the other two ends of the two wreathen chains thou
shalt fasten in the two ouches, and put them on the
shoulderpieces of the ephod before it.
28:26 And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and thou shalt put
them upon the two ends of the breastplate in the border
thereof, which is in the side of the ephod inward.
28:27 And two other rings of gold thou shalt make, and shalt
put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the
forepart thereof, over against the other coupling thereof,
above the curious girdle of the ephod.
28:28 And they shall bind the breastplate by the rings thereof
unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may
be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the
breastplate be not loosed from the ephod.
28:29 And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel
in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in
unto the holy place, for a memorial before the LORD
continually.
28:30 And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim
and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron's heart, when he
goeth in before the LORD: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of
the children of Israel upon his heart before the LORD
continually.
28:31 And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue.
28:32 And there shall be an hole in the top of it, in the midst
thereof: it shall have a binding of woven work round about the
hole of it, as it were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not
rent.
28:33 And beneath upon the hem of it thou shalt make
pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet,
round about the hem thereof; and bells of gold between them
round about:
28:34 A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a
pomegranate, upon the hem of the robe round about.
28:35 And it shall be upon Aaron to minister: and his sound
shall be heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before
the LORD, and when he cometh out, that he die not.
28:36 And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon
it, like the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
28:37 And thou shalt put it on a blue lace, that it may be upon
the mitre; upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be.
28:38 And it shall be upon Aaron's forehead, that Aaron may bear
the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel
shall hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always
upon his forehead, that they may be accepted before the LORD.
28:39 And thou shalt embroider the coat of fine linen, and thou
shalt make the mitre of fine linen, and thou shalt make the
girdle of needlework.
28:40 And for Aaron's sons thou shalt make coats, and thou shalt
make for them girdles, and bonnets shalt thou make for them,
for glory and for beauty.
28:41 And thou shalt put them upon Aaron thy brother, and his
sons with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and
sanctify them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's
office.
28:42 And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their
nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall
reach:
28:43 And they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his sons, when they
come in unto the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they
come near unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that
they bear not iniquity, and die: it shall be a statute for
ever unto him and his seed after him.
29:1 And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to
hallow them, to minister unto me in the priest's office: Take
one young bullock, and two rams without blemish,
29:2 And unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered with
oil, and wafers unleavened anointed with oil: of wheaten
flour shalt thou make them.
29:3 And thou shalt put them into one basket, and bring them in
the basket, with the bullock and the two rams.
29:4 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of
the tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them with
water.
29:5 And thou shalt take the garments, and put upon Aaron the
coat, and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the
breastplate, and gird him with the curious girdle of the ephod:
29:6 And thou shalt put the mitre upon his head, and put the
holy crown upon the mitre.
29:7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon
his head, and anoint him.
29:8 And thou shalt bring his sons, and put coats upon them.
29:9 And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons,
and put the bonnets on them: and the priest's office shall be
theirs for a perpetual statute: and thou shalt consecrate Aaron
and his sons.
29:10 And thou shalt cause a bullock to be brought before the
tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron and his sons shall
put their hands upon the head of the bullock.
29:11 And thou shalt kill the bullock before the LORD, by the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
29:12 And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put
it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger, and pour all
the blood beside the bottom of the altar.
29:13 And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the inwards,
and the caul that is above the liver, and the two kidneys,
and the fat that is upon them, and burn them upon the
altar.
29:14 But the flesh of the bullock, and his skin, and his dung,
shalt thou burn with fire without the camp: it is a sin
offering.
29:15 Thou shalt also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall
put their hands upon the head of the ram.
29:16 And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his
blood, and sprinkle it round about upon the altar.
29:17 And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces, and wash the inwards
of him, and his legs, and put them unto his pieces, and unto
his head.
29:18 And thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is
a burnt offering unto the LORD: it is a sweet savour, an
offering made by fire unto the LORD.
29:19 And thou shalt take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons
shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
29:20 Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood, and
put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the
tip of the right ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of their
right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot, and
sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.
29:21 And thou shalt take of the blood that is upon the altar,
and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron, and
upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon the garments of
his sons with him: and he shall be hallowed, and his garments,
and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.
29:22 Also thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the rump, and
the fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul above the
liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them,
and the right shoulder; for it is a ram of consecration:
29:23 And one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and
one wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is
before the LORD:
29:24 And thou shalt put all in the hands of Aaron, and in the
hands of his sons; and shalt wave them for a wave offering
before the LORD.
29:25 And thou shalt receive them of their hands, and burn
them upon the altar for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour
before the LORD: it is an offering made by fire unto the
LORD.
29:26 And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of Aaron's
consecration, and wave it for a wave offering before the
LORD: and it shall be thy part.
29:27 And thou shalt sanctify the breast of the wave offering,
and the shoulder of the heave offering, which is waved, and
which is heaved up, of the ram of the consecration, even of
that which is for Aaron, and of that which is for his
sons:
29:28 And it shall be Aaron's and his sons' by a statute for
ever from the children of Israel: for it is an heave
offering: and it shall be an heave offering from the children
of Israel of the sacrifice of their peace offerings, even
their heave offering unto the LORD.
29:29 And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons' after
him, to be anointed therein, and to be consecrated in them.
29:30 And that son that is priest in his stead shall put them
on seven days, when he cometh into the tabernacle of the
congregation to minister in the holy place.
29:31 And thou shalt take the ram of the consecration, and
seethe his flesh in the holy place.
29:32 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and
the bread that is in the basket, by the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation.
29:33 And they shall eat those things wherewith the atonement
was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but a stranger
shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.
29:34 And if ought of the flesh of the consecrations, or of the
bread, remain unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the
remainder with fire: it shall not be eaten, because it is
holy.
29:35 And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons,
according to all things which I have commanded thee: seven
days shalt thou consecrate them.
29:36 And thou shalt offer every day a bullock for a sin
offering for atonement: and thou shalt cleanse the altar, when
thou hast made an atonement for it, and thou shalt anoint it,
to sanctify it.
29:37 Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for the altar, and
sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever
toucheth the altar shall be holy.
29:38 Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar;
two lambs of the first year day by day continually.
29:39 The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the
other lamb thou shalt offer at even:
29:40 And with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled with
the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of
an hin of wine for a drink offering.
29:41 And the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, and shalt do
thereto according to the meat offering of the morning, and
according to the drink offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an
offering made by fire unto the LORD.
29:42 This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your
generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation
before the LORD: where I will meet you, to speak there unto
thee.
29:43 And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and
the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory.
29:44 And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation,
and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to
minister to me in the priest's office.
29:45 And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be
their God.
29:46 And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that
brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell
among them: I am the LORD their God.
30:1 And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon: of
shittim wood shalt thou make it.
30:2 A cubit shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the
breadth thereof; foursquare shall it be: and two cubits shall
be the height thereof: the horns thereof shall be of the
same.
30:3 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof,
and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and
thou shalt make unto it a crown of gold round about.
30:4 And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown
of it, by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides of it
shalt thou make it; and they shall be for places for the
staves to bear it withal.
30:5 And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and
overlay them with gold.
30:6 And thou shalt put it before the vail that is by the ark
of the testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the
testimony, where I will meet with thee.
30:7 And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning:
when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.
30:8 And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn
incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout
your generations.
30:9 Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt
sacrifice, nor meat offering; neither shall ye pour drink
offering thereon.
30:10 And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it
once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of
atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it
throughout your generations: it is most holy unto the LORD.
30:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
30:12 When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after
their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his
soul unto the LORD, when thou numberest them; that there be no
plague among them, when thou numberest them.
30:13 This they shall give, every one that passeth among them
that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the
sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall
be the offering of the LORD.
30:14 Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from
twenty years old and above, shall give an offering unto the
LORD.
30:15 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give
less than half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the
LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.
30:16 And thou shalt take the atonement money of the children of
Israel, and shalt appoint it for the service of the tabernacle
of the congregation; that it may be a memorial unto the
children of Israel before the LORD, to make an atonement for
your souls.
30:17 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
30:18 Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot
also of brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it
between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and
thou shalt put water therein.
30:19 For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their
feet thereat:
30:20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they
shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come
near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire
unto the LORD:
30:21 So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they
die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to
him and to his seed throughout their generations.
30:22 Moreover the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
30:23 Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh
five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much,
even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus
two hundred and fifty shekels,
30:24 And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of
the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:
30:25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an
ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be
an holy anointing oil.
30:26 And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation
therewith, and the ark of the testimony,
30:27 And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and
his vessels, and the altar of incense,
30:28 And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and
the laver and his foot.
30:29 And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy:
whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy.
30:30 And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate
them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office.
30:31 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying,
This shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your
generations.
30:32 Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye
make any other like it, after the composition of it: it is
holy, and it shall be holy unto you.
30:33 Whosoever compoundeth any like it, or whosoever putteth
any of it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off from his
people.
30:34 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices,
stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with
pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:
30:35 And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the
art of the apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy:
30:36 And thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it
before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation,
where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.
30:37 And as for the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall
not make to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it
shall be unto thee holy for the LORD.
30:38 Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereto,
shall even be cut off from his people.
31:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
31:2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son
of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:
31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom,
and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of
workmanship,
31:4 To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver,
and in brass,
31:5 And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of
timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.
31:6 And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of
Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that
are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that
I have commanded thee;
31:7 The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the
testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the
furniture of the tabernacle,
31:8 And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick
with all his furniture, and the altar of incense,
31:9 And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and
the laver and his foot,
31:10 And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron
the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the
priest's office,
31:11 And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy
place: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they
do.
31:12 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
31:13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying,
Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me
and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I
am the LORD that doth sanctify you.
31:14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto
you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death:
for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut
off from among his people.
31:15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the
sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work
in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
31:16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath,
to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a
perpetual covenant.
31:17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for
ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on
the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of
communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony,
tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
32:1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out
of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto
Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go
before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up
out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
32:2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings,
which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of
your daughters, and bring them unto me.
32:3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which
were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
32:4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with
a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they
said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out
of the land of Egypt.
32:5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and
Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to
the LORD.
32:6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt
offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down
to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
32:7 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy
people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have
corrupted themselves:
32:8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I
commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have
worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These
be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the
land of Egypt.
32:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and,
behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
32:10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot
against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of
thee a great nation.
32:11 And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why
doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast
brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and
with a mighty hand?
32:12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For
mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains,
and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy
fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.
32:13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom
thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will
multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land
that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they
shall inherit it for ever.
32:14 And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do
unto his people.
32:15 And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the
two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables
were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the
other were they written.
32:16 And the tables were the work of God, and the writing
was the writing of God, graven upon the tables.
32:17 And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they
shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the
camp.
32:18 And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout
for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for
being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.
32:19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the
camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger
waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake
them beneath the mount.
32:20 And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it
in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon
the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.
32:21 And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee,
that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?
32:22 And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou
knowest the people, that they are set on mischief.
32:23 For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before
us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of
the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
32:24 And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them
break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the
fire, and there came out this calf.
32:25 And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for
Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their
enemies:)
32:26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who
is on the LORD'S side? let him come unto me. And all the
sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.
32:27 And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel,
Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from
gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his
brother, and every man his companion, and every man his
neighbour.
32:28 And the children of Levi did according to the word of
Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three
thousand men.
32:29 For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves to day to the
LORD, even every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that
he may bestow upon you a blessing this day.
32:30 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto
the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up
unto the LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your
sin.
32:31 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this
people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of
gold.
32:32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not,
blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
32:33 And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned
against me, him will I blot out of my book.
32:34 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of
which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go
before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit
their sin upon them.
32:35 And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the
calf, which Aaron made.
33:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence,
thou and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land
of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac,
and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will I give it:
33:2 And I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out
the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite,
the Hivite, and the Jebusite:
33:3 Unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go
up in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people:
lest I consume thee in the way.
33:4 And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned:
and no man did put on him his ornaments.
33:5 For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of
Israel, Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the
midst of thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put
off thy ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto
thee.
33:6 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their
ornaments by the mount Horeb.
33:7 And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the
camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of
the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which
sought the LORD went out unto the tabernacle of the
congregation, which was without the camp.
33:8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the
tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man
at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone
into the tabernacle.
33:9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle,
the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the
tabernacle, and the LORD talked with Moses.
33:10 And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the
tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped,
every man in his tent door.
33:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man
speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp:
but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed
not out of the tabernacle.
33:12 And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me,
Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou
wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and
thou hast also found grace in my sight.
33:13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy
sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may
find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy
people.
33:14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will
give thee rest.
33:15 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me,
carry us not up hence.
33:16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people
have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest
with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all
the people that are upon the face of the earth.
33:17 And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also
that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight,
and I know thee by name.
33:18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.
33:19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee,
and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will
be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on
whom I will shew mercy.
33:20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall
no man see me, and live.
33:21 And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and
thou shalt stand upon a rock:
33:22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that
I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee
with my hand while I pass by:
33:23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back
parts: but my face shall not be seen.
34:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone
like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the
words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.
34:2 And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning
unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of
the mount.
34:3 And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be
seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds
feed before that mount.
34:4 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and
Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount
Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the
two tables of stone.
34:5 And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him
there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.
34:6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The
LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and
abundant in goodness and truth,
34:7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and
transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the
guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the
children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and
to the fourth generation.
34:8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth,
and worshipped.
34:9 And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O
Lord, let my Lord, I pray thee, go among us; for it is a
stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and
take us for thine inheritance.
34:10 And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy
people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the
earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou
art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible
thing that I will do with thee.
34:11 Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I
drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the
Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
34:12 Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the
inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a
snare in the midst of thee:
34:13 But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and
cut down their groves:
34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose
name is Jealous, is a jealous God:
34:15 Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the
land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice
unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his
sacrifice;
34:16 And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their
daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a
whoring after their gods.
34:17 Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.
34:18 The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days
thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the
time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out
from Egypt.
34:19 All that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling
among thy cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male.
34:20 But the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb:
and if thou redeem him not, then shalt thou break his neck.
All the firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And none shall
appear before me empty.
34:21 Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou
shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.
34:22 And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the
firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at
the year's end.
34:23 Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear
before the Lord GOD, the God of Israel.
34:24 For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge
thy borders: neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou
shalt go up to appear before the LORD thy God thrice in the
year.
34:25 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with
leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the
passover be left unto the morning.
34:26 The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring
unto the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid
in his mother's milk.
34:27 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for
after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee
and with Israel.
34:28 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty
nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote
upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten
commandments.
34:29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai
with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came
down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his
face shone while he talked with him.
34:30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses,
behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to
come nigh him.
34:31 And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers
of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with
them.
34:32 And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he
gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him
in mount Sinai.
34:33 And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a
vail on his face.
34:34 But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him,
he took the vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and
spake unto the children of Israel that which he was
commanded.
34:35 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the
skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face
again, until he went in to speak with him.
35:1 And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of
Israel together, and said unto them, These are the words
which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them.
35:2 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there
shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD:
whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.
35:3 Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon
the sabbath day.
35:4 And Moses spake unto all the congregation of the children
of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD
commanded, saying,
35:5 Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD: whosoever
is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the
LORD; gold, and silver, and brass,
35:6 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and
goats' hair,
35:7 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim
wood,
35:8 And oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and
for the sweet incense,
35:9 And onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and
for the breastplate.
35:10 And every wise hearted among you shall come, and make all
that the LORD hath commanded;
35:11 The tabernacle, his tent, and his covering, his taches,
and his boards, his bars, his pillars, and his sockets,
35:12 The ark, and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat,
and the vail of the covering,
35:13 The table, and his staves, and all his vessels, and the
shewbread,
35:14 The candlestick also for the light, and his furniture, and
his lamps, with the oil for the light,
35:15 And the incense altar, and his staves, and the anointing
oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the door at the
entering in of the tabernacle,
35:16 The altar of burnt offering, with his brasen grate, his
staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,
35:17 The hangings of the court, his pillars, and their sockets,
and the hanging for the door of the court,
35:18 The pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and
their cords,
35:19 The cloths of service, to do service in the holy place,
the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his
sons, to minister in the priest's office.
35:20 And all the congregation of the children of Israel
departed from the presence of Moses.
35:21 And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and
every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the
LORD'S offering to the work of the tabernacle of the
congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy
garments.
35:22 And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing
hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and
tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered
offered an offering of gold unto the LORD.
35:23 And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and red skins of
rams, and badgers' skins, brought them.
35:24 Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass
brought the LORD'S offering: and every man, with whom was found
shittim wood for any work of the service, brought it.
35:25 And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with
their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of
blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.
35:26 And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom
spun goats' hair.
35:27 And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set,
for the ephod, and for the breastplate;
35:28 And spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing
oil, and for the sweet incense.
35:29 The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the
LORD, every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to
bring for all manner of work, which the LORD had commanded to
be made by the hand of Moses.
35:30 And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the LORD
hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of
the tribe of Judah;
35:31 And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom,
in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of
workmanship;
35:32 And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in
silver, and in brass,
35:33 And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in
carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work.
35:34 And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he,
and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.
35:35 Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all
manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman,
and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and
in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any
work, and of those that devise cunning work.
36:1 Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted
man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how
to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary,
according to all that the LORD had commanded.
36:2 And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise
hearted man, in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, even
every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to
do it:
36:3 And they received of Moses all the offering, which the
children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of
the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto
him free offerings every morning.
36:4 And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the
sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;
36:5 And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much
more than enough for the service of the work, which the LORD
commanded to make.
36:6 And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be
proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor
woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So
the people were restrained from bringing.
36:7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to
make it, and too much.
36:8 And every wise hearted man among them that wrought the work
of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen, and
blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work
made he them.
36:9 The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits,
and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were
all of one size.
36:10 And he coupled the five curtains one unto another: and
the other five curtains he coupled one unto another.
36:11 And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from
the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost
side of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.
36:12 Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made
he in the edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of
the second: the loops held one curtain to another.
36:13 And he made fifty taches of gold, and coupled the curtains
one unto another with the taches: so it became one tabernacle.
36:14 And he made curtains of goats' hair for the tent over
the tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.
36:15 The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four
cubits was the breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains
were of one size.
36:16 And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six
curtains by themselves.
36:17 And he made fifty loops upon the uttermost edge of the
curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge
of the curtain which coupleth the second.
36:18 And he made fifty taches of brass to couple the tent
together, that it might be one.
36:19 And he made a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed
red, and a covering of badgers' skins above that.
36:20 And he made boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood,
standing up.
36:21 The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of
a board one cubit and a half.
36:22 One board had two tenons, equally distant one from
another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.
36:23 And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for
the south side southward:
36:24 And forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty
boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two
sockets under another board for his two tenons.
36:25 And for the other side of the tabernacle, which is
toward the north corner, he made twenty boards,
36:26 And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one
board, and two sockets under another board.
36:27 And for the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six
boards.
36:28 And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle
in the two sides.
36:29 And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the
head thereof, to one ring: thus he did to both of them in both
the corners.
36:30 And there were eight boards; and their sockets were
sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.
36:31 And he made bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of
the one side of the tabernacle,
36:32 And five bars for the boards of the other side of the
tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for
the sides westward.
36:33 And he made the middle bar to shoot through the boards
from the one end to the other.
36:34 And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings
of gold to be places for the bars, and overlaid the bars
with gold.
36:35 And he made a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and
fine twined linen: with cherubims made he it of cunning work.
36:36 And he made thereunto four pillars of shittim wood,
and overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he
cast for them four sockets of silver.
36:37 And he made an hanging for the tabernacle door of blue,
and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, of needlework;
36:38 And the five pillars of it with their hooks: and he
overlaid their chapiters and their fillets with gold: but their
five sockets were of brass.
37:1 And Bezaleel made the ark of shittim wood: two cubits and
a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the
breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it:
37:2 And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and
made a crown of gold to it round about.
37:3 And he cast for it four rings of gold, to be set by the
four corners of it; even two rings upon the one side of it, and
two rings upon the other side of it.
37:4 And he made staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them
with gold.
37:5 And he put the staves into the rings by the sides of the
ark, to bear the ark.
37:6 And he made the mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a
half was the length thereof, and one cubit and a half the
breadth thereof.
37:7 And he made two cherubims of gold, beaten out of one
piece made he them, on the two ends of the mercy seat;
37:8 One cherub on the end on this side, and another cherub on
the other end on that side: out of the mercy seat made he the
cherubims on the two ends thereof.
37:9 And the cherubims spread out their wings on high, and
covered with their wings over the mercy seat, with their faces
one to another; even to the mercy seatward were the faces of
the cherubims.
37:10 And he made the table of shittim wood: two cubits was
the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a
cubit and a half the height thereof:
37:11 And he overlaid it with pure gold, and made thereunto a
crown of gold round about.
37:12 Also he made thereunto a border of an handbreadth round
about; and made a crown of gold for the border thereof round
about.
37:13 And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put the rings
upon the four corners that were in the four feet thereof.
37:14 Over against the border were the rings, the places for the
staves to bear the table.
37:15 And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid
them with gold, to bear the table.
37:16 And he made the vessels which were upon the table, his
dishes, and his spoons, and his bowls, and his covers to cover
withal, of pure gold.
37:17 And he made the candlestick of pure gold: of beaten
work made he the candlestick; his shaft, and his branch, his
bowls, his knops, and his flowers, were of the same:
37:18 And six branches going out of the sides thereof; three
branches of the candlestick out of the one side thereof, and
three branches of the candlestick out of the other side
thereof:
37:19 Three bowls made after the fashion of almonds in one
branch, a knop and a flower; and three bowls made like almonds
in another branch, a knop and a flower: so throughout the six
branches going out of the candlestick.
37:20 And in the candlestick were four bowls made like
almonds, his knops, and his flowers:
37:21 And a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop
under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches
of the same, according to the six branches going out of it.
37:22 Their knops and their branches were of the same: all of it
was one beaten work of pure gold.
37:23 And he made his seven lamps, and his snuffers, and his
snuffdishes, of pure gold.
37:24 Of a talent of pure gold made he it, and all the vessels
thereof.
37:25 And he made the incense altar of shittim wood: the
length of it was a cubit, and the breadth of it a cubit; it
was foursquare; and two cubits was the height of it; the
horns thereof were of the same.
37:26 And he overlaid it with pure gold, both the top of it,
and the sides thereof round about, and the horns of it: also he
made unto it a crown of gold round about.
37:27 And he made two rings of gold for it under the crown
thereof, by the two corners of it, upon the two sides thereof,
to be places for the staves to bear it withal.
37:28 And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid
them with gold.
37:29 And he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense
of sweet spices, according to the work of the apothecary.
38:1 And he made the altar of burnt offering of shittim wood:
five cubits was the length thereof, and five cubits the
breadth thereof; it was foursquare; and three cubits the
height thereof.
38:2 And he made the horns thereof on the four corners of it;
the horns thereof were of the same: and he overlaid it with
brass.
38:3 And he made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the
shovels, and the basons, and the fleshhooks, and the
firepans: all the vessels thereof made he of brass.
38:4 And he made for the altar a brasen grate of network under
the compass thereof beneath unto the midst of it.
38:5 And he cast four rings for the four ends of the grate of
brass, to be places for the staves.
38:6 And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them
with brass.
38:7 And he put the staves into the rings on the sides of the
altar, to bear it withal; he made the altar hollow with boards.
38:8 And he made the laver of brass, and the foot of it of
brass, of the lookingglasses of the women assembling, which
assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
38:9 And he made the court: on the south side southward the
hangings of the court were of fine twined linen, an hundred
cubits:
38:10 Their pillars were twenty, and their brasen sockets
twenty; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of
silver.
38:11 And for the north side the hangings were an hundred
cubits, their pillars were twenty, and their sockets of brass
twenty; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.
38:12 And for the west side were hangings of fifty cubits,
their pillars ten, and their sockets ten; the hooks of the
pillars and their fillets of silver.
38:13 And for the east side eastward fifty cubits.
38:14 The hangings of the one side of the gate were fifteen
cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.
38:15 And for the other side of the court gate, on this hand and
that hand, were hangings of fifteen cubits; their pillars
three, and their sockets three.
38:16 All the hangings of the court round about were of fine
twined linen.
38:17 And the sockets for the pillars were of brass; the hooks
of the pillars and their fillets of silver; and the
overlaying of their chapiters of silver; and all the pillars
of the court were filleted with silver.
38:18 And the hanging for the gate of the court was
needlework, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined
linen: and twenty cubits was the length, and the height in
the breadth was five cubits, answerable to the hangings of
the court.
38:19 And their pillars were four, and their sockets of
brass four; their hooks of silver, and the overlaying of
their chapiters and their fillets of silver.
38:20 And all the pins of the tabernacle, and of the court round
about, were of brass.
38:21 This is the sum of the tabernacle, even of the
tabernacle of testimony, as it was counted, according to the
commandment of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the
hand of Ithamar, son to Aaron the priest.
38:22 And Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe
of Judah, made all that the LORD commanded Moses.
38:23 And with him was Aholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe
of Dan, an engraver, and a cunning workman, and an embroiderer
in blue, and in purple, and in scarlet, and fine linen.
38:24 All the gold that was occupied for the work in all the
work of the holy place, even the gold of the offering, was
twenty and nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels,
after the shekel of the sanctuary.
38:25 And the silver of them that were numbered of the
congregation was an hundred talents, and a thousand seven
hundred and threescore and fifteen shekels, after the shekel of
the sanctuary:
38:26 A bekah for every man, that is, half a shekel, after the
shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that went to be
numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred
thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men.
38:27 And of the hundred talents of silver were cast the sockets
of the sanctuary, and the sockets of the vail; an hundred
sockets of the hundred talents, a talent for a socket.
38:28 And of the thousand seven hundred seventy and five shekels
he made hooks for the pillars, and overlaid their chapiters,
and filleted them.
38:29 And the brass of the offering was seventy talents, and
two thousand and four hundred shekels.
38:30 And therewith he made the sockets to the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, and the brasen altar, and the
brasen grate for it, and all the vessels of the altar,
38:31 And the sockets of the court round about, and the sockets
of the court gate, and all the pins of the tabernacle, and all
the pins of the court round about.
39:1 And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths
of service, to do service in the holy place, and made the
holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD commanded Moses.
39:2 And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine twined linen.
39:3 And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it
into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and
in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with cunning work.
39:4 They made shoulderpieces for it, to couple it together:
by the two edges was it coupled together.
39:5 And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was upon it,
was of the same, according to the work thereof; of gold,
blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; as the
LORD commanded Moses.
39:6 And they wrought onyx stones inclosed in ouches of gold,
graven, as signets are graven, with the names of the children
of Israel.
39:7 And he put them on the shoulders of the ephod, that they
should be stones for a memorial to the children of Israel; as
the LORD commanded Moses.
39:8 And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the
work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet,
and fine twined linen.
39:9 It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span
was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof,
being doubled.
39:10 And they set in it four rows of stones: the first row
was a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this was the first
row.
39:11 And the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.
39:12 And the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.
39:13 And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper: they
were inclosed in ouches of gold in their inclosings.
39:14 And the stones were according to the names of the
children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like
the engravings of a signet, every one with his name, according
to the twelve tribes.
39:15 And they made upon the breastplate chains at the ends,
of wreathen work of pure gold.
39:16 And they made two ouches of gold, and two gold rings;
and put the two rings in the two ends of the breastplate.
39:17 And they put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two
rings on the ends of the breastplate.
39:18 And the two ends of the two wreathen chains they fastened
in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of the
ephod, before it.
39:19 And they made two rings of gold, and put them on the two
ends of the breastplate, upon the border of it, which was on
the side of the ephod inward.
39:20 And they made two other golden rings, and put them on
the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart of
it, over against the other coupling thereof, above the
curious girdle of the ephod.
39:21 And they did bind the breastplate by his rings unto the
rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above
the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might
not be loosed from the ephod; as the LORD commanded Moses.
39:22 And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all
of blue.
39:23 And there was an hole in the midst of the robe, as the
hole of an habergeon, with a band round about the hole, that
it should not rend.
39:24 And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of
blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.
39:25 And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells
between the pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, round about
between the pomegranates;
39:26 A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round
about the hem of the robe to minister in; as the LORD
commanded Moses.
39:27 And they made coats of fine linen of woven work for
Aaron, and for his sons,
39:28 And a mitre of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine
linen, and linen breeches of fine twined linen,
39:29 And a girdle of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple,
and scarlet, of needlework; as the LORD commanded Moses.
39:30 And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold,
and wrote upon it a writing, like to the engravings of a
signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
39:31 And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten it on
high upon the mitre; as the LORD commanded Moses.
39:32 Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the
congregation finished: and the children of Israel did according
to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.
39:33 And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses, the tent, and
all his furniture, his taches, his boards, his bars, and his
pillars, and his sockets,
39:34 And the covering of rams' skins dyed red, and the covering
of badgers' skins, and the vail of the covering,
39:35 The ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the
mercy seat,
39:36 The table, and all the vessels thereof, and the
shewbread,
39:37 The pure candlestick, with the lamps thereof, even
with the lamps to be set in order, and all the vessels
thereof, and the oil for light,
39:38 And the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet
incense, and the hanging for the tabernacle door,
39:39 The brasen altar, and his grate of brass, his staves, and
all his vessels, the laver and his foot,
39:40 The hangings of the court, his pillars, and his sockets,
and the hanging for the court gate, his cords, and his pins,
and all the vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the
tent of the congregation,
39:41 The cloths of service to do service in the holy place,
and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons'
garments, to minister in the priest's office.
39:42 According to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so the
children of Israel made all the work.
39:43 And Moses did look upon all the work, and, behold, they
had done it as the LORD had commanded, even so had they done
it: and Moses blessed them.
40:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
40:2 On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the
tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
40:3 And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and
cover the ark with the vail.
40:4 And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the
things that are to be set in order upon it; and thou shalt
bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.
40:5 And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before
the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to
the tabernacle.
40:6 And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before
the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
40:7 And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of the
congregation and the altar, and shalt put water therein.
40:8 And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up
the hanging at the court gate.
40:9 And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the
tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and
all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.
40:10 And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and
all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an
altar most holy.
40:11 And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify
it.
40:12 And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of
the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.
40:13 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and
anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in
the priest's office.
40:14 And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:
40:15 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their
father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office:
for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood
throughout their generations.
40:16 Thus did Moses: according to all that the LORD commanded
him, so did he.
40:17 And it came to pass in the first month in the second year,
on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was
reared up.
40:18 And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his
sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars
thereof, and reared up his pillars.
40:19 And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put
the covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded
Moses.
40:20 And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set
the staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the
ark:
40:21 And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the
vail of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as
the LORD commanded Moses.
40:22 And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon
the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail.
40:23 And he set the bread in order upon it before the LORD; as
the LORD had commanded Moses.
40:24 And he put the candlestick in the tent of the
congregation, over against the table, on the side of the
tabernacle southward.
40:25 And he lighted the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD
commanded Moses.
40:26 And he put the golden altar in the tent of the
congregation before the vail:
40:27 And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the LORD commanded
Moses.
40:28 And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.
40:29 And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of
the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered
upon it the burnt offering and the meat offering; as the LORD
commanded Moses.
40:30 And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation
and the altar, and put water there, to wash withal.
40:31 And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and
their feet thereat:
40:32 When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when
they came near unto the altar, they washed; as the LORD
commanded Moses.
40:33 And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and
the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses
finished the work.
40:34 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the
glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
40:35 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the
congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of
the LORD filled the tabernacle.
40:36 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle,
the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:
40:37 But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed
not till the day that it was taken up.
40:38 For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by
day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house
of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
