Book of Leviticus Chapter 22

LEVITICUS 22:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

LEVITICUS 22:2 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.

LEVITICUS 22:3 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.

LEVITICUS 22:4 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;

LEVITICUS 22:5 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;

LEVITICUS 22:6 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.

LEVITICUS 22:7 And when the sun is down, he shall be clean, and shall afterward eat of the holy things; because it is his food.

LEVITICUS 22:8 That which dieth of itself, or is torn with beasts, he shall not eat to defile himself therewith; I am the LORD.

LEVITICUS 22:9 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.

LEVITICUS 22:10 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.

LEVITICUS 22:11 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.

LEVITICUS 22:12 If the priest's daughter also be married unto a stranger, she may not eat of an offering of the holy things.

LEVITICUS 22:13 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.

LEVITICUS 22:14 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.

LEVITICUS 22:15 And they shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel, which they offer unto the LORD;

LEVITICUS 22:16 Or suffer them to bear the iniquity of trespass, when they eat their holy things: for I the LORD do sanctify them.

LEVITICUS 22:17 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

LEVITICUS 22:18 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;

LEVITICUS 22:19 Ye shall offer at your own will a male without blemish, of the beeves, of the sheep, or of the goats.

LEVITICUS 22:20 But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer: for it shall not be acceptable for you.

LEVITICUS 22:21 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.

LEVITICUS 22:22 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.

LEVITICUS 22:23 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.

LEVITICUS 22:24 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.

LEVITICUS 22:25 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.

LEVITICUS 22:26 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

LEVITICUS 22:27 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.

LEVITICUS 22:28 And whether it be cow, or ewe, ye shall not kill it and her young both in one day.

LEVITICUS 22:29 And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the LORD, offer it at your own will.

LEVITICUS 22:30 On the same day it shall be eaten up; ye shall leave none of it until the morrow: I am the LORD.

LEVITICUS 22:31 Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am the LORD.

LEVITICUS 22:32 Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel: I am the LORD which hallow you,

LEVITICUS 22:33 That brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD.

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
