[Leviticus 19] Boundaries As Lifelines
Thursday, August 4
19"You shall keep my statutes. You shall not let your cattle breed with a different kind. You shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor shall you wear a garment of cloth made of two kinds of material.
20"If a man lies sexually with a woman who is a slave, assigned to another man and not yet ransomed or given her freedom, a distinction shall be made. They shall not be put to death, because she was not free;
21but he shall bring his compensation to the LORD, to the entrance of the tent of meeting, a ram for a guilt offering.
22And the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the guilt offering before the LORD for his sin that he has committed, and he shall be forgiven for the sin that he has committed.
23"When you come into the land and plant any kind of tree for food, then you shall regard its fruit as forbidden. Three years it shall be forbidden to you; it must not be eaten.
24And in the fourth year all its fruit shall be holy, an offering of praise to the LORD.
25But in the fifth year you may eat of its fruit, to increase its yield for you: I am the LORD your God.
26"You shall not eat any flesh with the blood in it. You shall not interpret omens or tell fortunes.
27You shall not round off the hair on your temples or mar the edges of your beard.
28You shall not make any cuts on your body for the dead or tattoo yourselves: I am the LORD.
29"Do not profane your daughter by making her a prostitute, lest the land fall into prostitution and the land become full of depravity.
30You shall keep my Sabbaths and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.
31"Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the LORD your God.
32"You shall stand up before the gray head and honor the face of an old man, and you shall fear your God: I am the LORD.
33"When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.
34You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
35"You shall do no wrong in judgment, in measures of length or weight or quantity.
36You shall have just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin: I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt.
37And you shall observe all my statutes and all my rules, and do them: I am the LORD."
