Israel is commanded: Be holy, live righteously, love your neighbor, and keep the commandments—The Lord reveals and reaffirms sundry laws and commandments—Enchantments, wizardry, prostitution, and all evil practices are forbidden.

6 It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if ought remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire.
7 And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is aabominable; it shall not be accepted.
8 Therefore every one that eateth it shall abear his iniquity, because he hath profaned the hallowed thing of the Lord: and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
10 And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the apoor and stranger: I am the Lord your God.
16 ¶ Thou shalt not go up and down as a atalebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the Lord.
19 ¶ Ye shall keep my statutes. aThou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with bmingled seed: neither shall a garment cmingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.
20 ¶ And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to aan husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; bshe shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free.
21 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the Lord, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, even a ram for a trespass offering.
22 And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering before the Lord for his sin which he hath done: and the sin which he hath done shall be aforgiven him.
23 ¶ And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye shall count the fruit thereof as uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it shall not be eaten of.
24 But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy to praise the Lord withal.
25 And in the fifth year shall ye eat of the fruit thereof, that it may yield unto you the increase thereof: I am the Lord your God.
27 Ye shall not around the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.
33 ¶ And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not avex him.
35 ¶ Ye shall do no aunrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.
37 Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the Lord.
