You shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt; and you shall be careful to observe these statutes.
"You shall keep the feast of booths seven days, when you make your ingathering from your threshing floor and your wine press;
you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your manservant and your maidservant, the Levite, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are within your towns.
For seven days you shall keep the feast to the LORD your God at the place which the LORD will choose; because the LORD your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you will be altogether joyful.
"Three times a year all your males shall appear before the LORD your God at the place which he will choose: at the feast of unleavened bread, at the feast of weeks, and at the feast of booths. They shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed;
every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which he has given you.
"You shall appoint judges and officers in all your towns which the LORD your God gives you, according to your tribes; and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.
You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality; and you shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous.
Justice, and only justice, you shall follow, that you may live and inherit the land which the LORD your God gives you.
"You shall not plant any tree as an Ashe'rah beside the altar of the LORD your God which you shall make.
And you shall not set up a pillar, which the LORD your God hates.
