The Lord reveals His laws pertaining to integrity and godly conduct—The land is to rest during a sabbatical year—The children of Israel are to keep three annual feasts—An angel, bearing the Lord’s name, will guide them—Sickness will be removed—The nations of Canaan will be driven out gradually.
1 Thou shalt not raise a afalse report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
5 If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt surely ahelp with him.
8 ¶ And thou shalt take no agift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.
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.
10 And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruits thereof:
11 But the aseventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the bpoor 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.
15 Thou shalt keep the afeast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month bAbib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me cempty:)
16 And the afeast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of bingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in cthy labours out of the field.
17 Three times in the year all thy amales shall appear before the Lord God.
20 ¶ Behold, I send an aAngel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine aenemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.
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.
27 I will send my afear 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.
28 And I will send ahornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.
30 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.
31 And I will set thy abounds from the bRed sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto cthe driver: for I will edeliver the finhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee.
32 Thou shalt make no acovenant with them, nor with their gods.
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 asnare unto thee.
