1: And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto the priests the sons of Aaron, and say unto them, There shall none be defiled for the dead among his people:
2: But for his kin, that is near unto him, that is, for his mother, and for his father, and for his son, and for his daughter, and for his brother.
3: And for his sister a virgin, that is nigh unto him, which hath had no husband; for her may he be defiled.
4: But he shall not defile himself, being a chief man among his people, to profane himself.
5: They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
6: They shall be holy unto their God, and not profane the name of their God: for the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and the bread of their God, they do offer: therefore they shall be holy.
7: They shall not take a wife that is a whore, or profane; neither shall they take a woman put away from her husband: for he is holy unto his God.
8: Thou shalt sanctify him therefore; for he offereth the bread of thy God: he shall be holy unto thee: for I the LORD, which sanctify you, am holy.
9: And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire.
10: And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor rend his clothes;
11: Neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself for his father, or for his mother;
12: Neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the crown of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am the LORD.
13: And he shall take a wife in her virginity.
14: A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or an harlot, these shall he not take: but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife.
15: Neither shall he profane his seed among his people: for I the LORD do sanctify him.
16: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
17: Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.
18: For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
19: Or a man that is broken-footed, or broken-handed,
20: Or crookbacked, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;
21: No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.
22: He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy.
23: Only he shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for I the LORD do sanctify them.
24: And Moses told it unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel.
1: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2: Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel, and that they profane not my holy name in those things which they hallow unto me: I am the LORD.
3: Say unto them, Whosoever he be of all your seed among your generations, that goeth unto the holy things, which the children of Israel hallow unto the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from my presence: I am the LORD.
4: What man soever of the seed of Aaron is a leper, or hath a running issue; he shall not eat of the holy things, until he be clean. And whoso toucheth any thing that is unclean by the dead, or a man whose seed goeth from him;
5: Or whosoever toucheth any creeping thing, whereby he may be made unclean, or a man of whom he may take uncleanness, whatsoever uncleanness he hath;
6: The soul which hath touched any such shall be unclean until even, and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he wash his flesh with water.
7: And when the sun is down, he shall be clean, and shall afterward eat of the holy things; because it is his food.
8: That which dieth of itself, or is torn with beasts, he shall not eat to defile himself therewith; I am the LORD.
9: They shall therefore keep mine ordinance, lest they bear sin for it, and die therefore, if they profane it: I the LORD do sanctify them.
10: There shall no stranger eat of the holy thing: a sojourner of the priest, or an hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing.
11: But if the priest buy any soul with his money, he shall eat of it, and he that is born in his house: they shall eat of his meat.
12: If the priest's daughter also be married unto a stranger, she may not eat of an offering of the holy things.
13: But if the priest's daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no child, and is returned unto her father's house, as in her youth, she shall eat of her father's meat: but there shall be no stranger eat thereof.
14: And if a man eat of the holy thing unwittingly, then he shall put the fifth part thereof unto it, and shall give it unto the priest with the holy thing.
15: And they shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel, which they offer unto the LORD;
16: Or suffer them to bear the iniquity of trespass, when they eat their holy things: for I the LORD do sanctify them.
17: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
18: Speak unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel, and say unto them, Whatsoever he be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers in Israel, that will offer his oblation for all his vows, and for all his freewill offerings, which they will offer unto the LORD for a burnt offering;
19: Ye shall offer at your own will a male without blemish, of the beeves, of the sheep, or of the goats.
20: But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer: for it shall not be acceptable for you.
21: And whosoever offereth a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD to accomplish his vow, or a freewill offering in beeves or sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein.
22: Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, ye shall not offer these unto the LORD, nor make an offering by fire of them upon the altar unto the LORD.
23: Either a bullock or a lamb that hath any thing superfluous or lacking in his parts, that mayest thou offer for a freewill offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted.
24: Ye shall not offer unto the LORD that which is bruised, or crushed, or broken, or cut; neither shall ye make any offering thereof in your land.
25: Neither from a stranger's hand shall ye offer the bread of your God of any of these; because their corruption is in them, and blemishes be in them: they shall not be accepted for you.
26: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
27: When a bullock, or a sheep, or a goat, is brought forth, then it shall be seven days under the dam; and from the eighth day and thenceforth it shall be accepted for an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
28: And whether it be cow, or ewe, ye shall not kill it and her young both in one day.
29: And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the LORD, offer it at your own will.
30: On the same day it shall be eaten up; ye shall leave none of it until the morrow: I am the LORD.
31: Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am the LORD.
32: Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel: I am the LORD which hallow you,
33: That brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD.
1: The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2: Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3: There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4: Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5: Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6: His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7: The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8: The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9: The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10: More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11: Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12: Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13: Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14: Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
1: The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
2: Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;
3: Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.
4: Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
5: We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.
6: Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
7: Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
8: They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
9: Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.
1: The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
2: Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.
3: For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.
4: He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.
5: His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.
6: For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.
7: For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
8: Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.
9: Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
10: Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
11: For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
12: Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.
13: Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.
