Why does it have strange spelling?
1 The law of the meat offering and the drinke offring. 13.29 The stranger is vnder the same law. 17 The law of the first of the dough for a heaue offering. 22 The sacrifice for sinne of ignorance. 30 The punishment of presumption. 32. Hee that violated the Sabbath, is stoned. 37 The law of fringes.
And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying,
Speake vnto the children of Israel, and say vnto them, When ye be come into the land of your habitations, which I giue vnto you,2
And will make an offering by fire vnto the Lord, a burnt offering or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a free will offering, or in your solemne feasts, to make a sweet sauour vnto the Lord, of the herd or of the flocke:3
Then shall he that offereth his offering vnto the Lord, bring a meat offring of a tenth deale of flowre, mingled with the fourth part of an Hyn of oyle.4
And the fourth part of an Hyn of wine for a drinke offring shalt thou prepare, with the burnt offering or sacrifice for one lambe.
Or for a ramme, thou shalt prepare for a meate offering two tenth deales of flowre mingled with the third part of an Hyn of oyle.
And for a drinke offering, thou shalt offer the third part of an Hyn of wine, for a sweete sauour vnto the Lord.
And when thou preparest a bullocke for a burnt offering, or for a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings vnto the Lord:
Then shall hee bring with a bullocke a meate offering of three tenth deales of flowre, mingled with halfe an Hyn of oyle.
And thou shalt bring for a drinke offering halfe an Hyn of wine, for an offering made by fire of a sweet sauour vnto the Lord.
Thus shall it be done for one bullocke, or for one ramme, or for a lambe, or a kidde.
According to the number that yee shall prepare, so shall yee doe to euery one, according to their number.
All that are borne of the countrey shall doe these things after this maner, in offering an offering made by fire of a sweet sauour, vnto the Lord.
And if a stranger soiourne with you, or whosoeuer bee among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire of a sweete sauour vnto the Lord: as ye doe, so hee shall doe.
One ordinance shall be both for you of the Congregation, and also for the stranger that soiourneth with you, an ordinance for euer in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger bee, before the Lord.15
One law, and one maner shall be for you, and for the stranger that soiourneth with you.
¶ And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying,
Speake vnto the children of Israel, and say vnto them, When ye come into the land whither I bring you,
Then it shall be that when ye eate of the bread of the land, yee shall offer vp an heaue offring vnto the Lord.
Ye shall offer vp a cake of the first of your dough, for an heaue offring: as ye doe the heaue offering of the threshing floore, so shall ye heaue it.
Of the first of your dough ye shal giue vnto the Lord, an heaue offering in your generations.
¶ And if yee haue erred, and not obserued all these Commaundements which the Lord hath spoken vnto Moses,
Euen all that the Lord hath commanded you, by the hand of Moses from the day that the Lord commanded Moses, and henceforward among your generations:
Then it shalbe, if ought be committed by ignorance without the knowledge of the Congregation, that all the Congregation shall offer one yong bullocke for a burnt offering, for a sweet sauour vnto the Lord, with his meate offering, and his drinke offering, according to the manner, and one kid of the goats for a sinne offering.24
And the Priest shall make an atonement for all the Congregation of the children of Israel, and it shal be forgiuen them, for it is ignorance: and they shall bring their offring, a sacrifice made by fire vnto the Lord, and their sinne offering before the Lord, for their ignorance.
And it shall bee forgiuen all the Congregation of the children of Israel, and the stranger that soiourneth among them, seeing all the people were in ignorance.
¶ And if any soule sinne through ignorance, then hee shall bring a shee goat of the first yeere for a sinne offring.27
And the Priest shall make an atonement for the soule that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the Lord, to make an atonement for him, & it shalbe forgiuen him.
You shall haue one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is borne amongst the children of Israel, and for the stranger that soiourneth among them.29
¶ But the soule that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be borne in the land, or a stranger, the same reprocheth the Lord: and that soule shall be cut off from among his people.30
Because he hath despised the word of the Lord, and hath broken his commandement, that soule shall vtterly be cut off: his iniquitie shall be vpon him.
¶ And while the children of Israel were in the wildernes, they found a man that gathered stickes vpon the Sabbath day.
And they that found him gathering sticks, brought him vnto Moses and Aaron, and vnto all the Congregation.
And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.34
And the Lord said vnto Moses, The man shall bee surely put to death: all the Congregation shall stone him with stones without the campe.
And all the Cogregation brought him without the campe, and stoned him with stones, and he died, as the Lord commanded Moses.
¶ And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying,
Speake vnto the children of Israel, and bidde them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments, throughout their generations, and that they put vpon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blew.38
And it shall bee vnto you for a fringe, that ye may looke vpon it, and remember all the commandements of the Lord, and doe them: and that ye seeke not after your owne heart, and your owne eyes, after which ye vse to goe a whoring:
That ye may remember, and doe all my commandements, and be holy vnto your God.
I am the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to bee your God: I am the Lord your God.
