Exod 13:1

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 13:4

This day came ye out in the month Abib.

Exod 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.

Exod 13:6

Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day

shall be a feast to the LORD.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 13:10

Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to


Exod 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,

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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:

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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:

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 13:20

And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in

the edge of the wilderness.

Exod 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:

Exod 13:22

He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of

fire by night, from before the people.

Exod 14:1

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exod 14:2

Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before

Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baal-zephon:

before it shall ye encamp by the sea.

Exod 14:3

For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in

the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.

Exod 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.

Exod 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?

Exod 14:6

And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:

Exod 14:7

And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of

Egypt, and captains over every one of them.

Exod 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.

Exod 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 Pi-hahiroth, before Baal-zephon.

Exod 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.

Exod 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?

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 14:14

The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Exod 14:15

And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak

unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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:

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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,

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 15:3

The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.

Exod 15:4

Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen

captains also are drowned in the Red sea.

Exod 15:5

The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.

Exod 15:6

Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand,

O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 15:10

Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as

lead in the mighty waters.

Exod 15:11

Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee,

glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

Exod 15:12

Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.

Exod 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.

Exod 15:14

The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the

inhabitants of Palestina.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 15:18

The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 15:24

And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

Exod 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,

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 16:2

And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against

Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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:

Exod 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?

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 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.

Exod 16:11

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 16:17

And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.

Exod 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.

Exod 16:19

And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.

Exod 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.

Exod 16:21

And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his

eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 16:24

And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not

stink, neither was there any worm therein.

Exod 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.

Exod 16:26

Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the

sabbath, in it there shall be none.

Exod 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.

Exod 16:28

And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my

commandments and my laws?

Exod 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.

Exod 16:30

So the people rested on the seventh day.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 16:34

As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the

Testimony, to be kept.

Exod 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.

Exod 16:36

Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.

Exod 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.

Exod 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?

Exod 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


Exod 17:4

And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, What shall I do unto this

people? they be almost ready to stone me.

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 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?

Exod 17:8

Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 17:13

And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the


Exod 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.

Exod 17:15

And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi:

Exod 17:16

For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war

with Amalek from generation to generation.

Exod 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;

Exod 18:2

Then Jethro, Moses' father in law, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after

he had sent her back,

Exod 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:

Exod 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:

Exod 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:

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 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?

Exod 18:15

And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people come unto

me to inquire of God:

Exod 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


Exod 18:17

And Moses' father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is

not good.

Exod 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.

Exod 18:19

Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be

with thee: Be thou for the people to Godward, that thou mayest bring

the causes unto God:

Exod 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.

Exod 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:

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 18:24

So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and did all

that he had said.

Exod 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.

Exod 18:26

And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they

brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves.

Exod 18:27

And Moses let his father in law depart; and he went his way into his

own land.

Exod 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


Exod 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.

Exod 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;

Exod 19:4

Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on

eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

Exod 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:

Exod 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


Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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,

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 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.

Exod 19:14

And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified

the people; and they washed their clothes.

Exod 19:15

And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not

at your wives.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 19:22

And let the priests also, which come near to the LORD, sanctify

themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them.

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 19:25

So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them.

Exod 20:1

And God spake all these words, saying,

Exod 20:2

I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of

Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Exod 20:3

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Exod 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:

Exod 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;

Exod 20:6

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my


Exod 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.

Exod 20:8

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Exod 20:9

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

Exod 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:

Exod 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.

Exod 20:12

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the

land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

Exod 20:13

Thou shalt not kill.

Exod 20:14

Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Exod 20:15

Thou shalt not steal.

Exod 20:16

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 20:21

And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick

darkness where God was.

Exod 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.

Exod 20:23

Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto

you gods of gold.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 20:26

Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness

be not discovered thereon.

Exod 21:1

Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them.

Exod 21:2

If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the

seventh he shall go out free for nothing.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 21:5

And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and

my children; I will not go out free:

Exod 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.

Exod 21:7

And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go

out as the menservants do.

Exod 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.

Exod 21:9

And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her

after the manner of daughters.

Exod 21:10

If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of

marriage, shall he not diminish.

Exod 21:11

And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free

without money.

Exod 21:12

He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 21:15

And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to


Exod 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.

Exod 21:17

And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to


Exod 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:

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 21:21

Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be

punished: for he is his money.

Exod 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.

Exod 21:23

And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,

Exod 21:24

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,

Exod 21:25

Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 21:31

Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to

this judgment shall it be done unto him.

Exod 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


Exod 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;

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 22:2

If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there

shall no blood be shed for him.

Exod 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.

Exod 22:4

If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox,

or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.

Exod 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


Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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:

Exod 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.

Exod 22:12

And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the

owner thereof.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 22:17

If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money

according to the dowry of virgins.

Exod 22:18

Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.

Exod 22:19

Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.

Exod 22:20

He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the LORD only, he shall

be utterly destroyed.

Exod 22:21

Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were

strangers in the land of Egypt.

Exod 22:22

Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.

Exod 22:23

If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will

surely hear their cry;

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 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:

Exod 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.

Exod 22:28

Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people.

Exod 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.

Exod 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


Exod 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.

Exod 23:1

Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the

wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

Exod 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:

Exod 23:3

Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.

Exod 23:4

If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his ass going astray, thou shalt

surely bring it back to him again.

Exod 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.

Exod 23:6

Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.

Exod 23:7

Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous

slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.

Exod 23:8

And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and

perverteth the words of the righteous.

Exod 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.

Exod 23:10

And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruits


Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 23:14

Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.

Exod 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:)

Exod 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


Exod 23:17

Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord


Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 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,

and the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.

Exod 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.

Exod 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.

Exod 23:26

There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the

number of thy days I will fulfil.

Exod 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.

Exod 23:28

And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the

Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.

Exod 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.

Exod 23:30

By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until

thou be increased, and inherit the land.

Exod 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.

Exod 23:32

Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.

Exod 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.
