And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
`Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the sons of Israel; and thou hast said unto them, This [is] the thing which Jehovah hath commanded, saying,
Any man of the house of Israel who slaughtereth ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or who slaughtereth at the outside of the camp,
and unto the opening of the tent of meeting hath not brought it in to bring near an offering to Jehovah before the tabernacle of Jehovah, blood is reckoned to that man -- blood he hath shed -- and that man hath been cut off from the midst of his people;
so that the sons of Israel do bring in their sacrifices which they are sacrificing on the face of the field, yea, they have brought them in to Jehovah, unto the opening of the tent of meeting, unto the priest, and they have sacrificed sacrifices of peace-offerings to Jehovah with them.
`And the priest hath sprinkled the blood upon the altar of Jehovah, at the opening of the tent of meeting, and hath made perfume with the fat for sweet fragrance to Jehovah;
and they sacrifice not any more their sacrifices to goats after which they are going a-whoring; a statute age-during is this to them, to their generations.
`And unto them thou sayest: Any man of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners, who sojourneth in your midst, who causeth burnt-offering or sacrifice to ascend,
and unto the opening of the tent of meeting doth not bring it in to make it to Jehovah -- that man hath been cut off from his people.
`And any man of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners, who is sojourning in your midst, who eateth any blood, I have even set My face against the person who is eating the blood, and have cut him off from the midst of his people;
for the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar, to make atonement for your souls; for it [is] the blood which maketh atonement for the soul.
`Therefore I have said to the sons of Israel, No person among you doth eat blood, and the sojourner who is sojourning in your midst doth not eat blood;
and any man of the sons of Israel, or of the sojourners, who is sojourning in your midst, who hunteth venison, beast or fowl, which is eaten -- hath even poured out its blood, and hath covered it with dust;
for [it is] the life of all flesh, its blood is for its life; and I say to the sons of Israel, Blood of any flesh ye do not eat, for the life of all flesh is its blood; any one eating it is cut off.
`And any person who eateth a carcase or torn thing, among natives or among sojourners -- hath both washed his garments, and hath bathed with water, and hath been unclean until the evening -- then he hath been clean;
and if he wash not, and his flesh bathe not -- then he hath borne his iniquity.'
And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
`Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, I [am] Jehovah your God;
according to the work of the land of Egypt in which ye have dwelt ye do not, and according to the work of the land of Canaan whither I am bringing you in, ye do not, and in their statutes ye walk not.
`My judgments ye do, and My statutes ye keep, to walk in them; I [am] Jehovah your God;
and ye have kept My statutes and My judgments which man doth and liveth in them; I [am] Jehovah.
`None of you unto any relation of his flesh doth draw near to uncover nakedness; I [am] Jehovah.
`The nakedness of thy father and the nakedness of thy mother thou dost not uncover, she [is] thy mother; thou dost not uncover her nakedness.
`The nakedness of the wife of thy father thou dost not uncover; it [is] the nakedness of thy father.
`The nakedness of thy sister, daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, born at home or born without; thou dost not uncover their nakedness.
`The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter: thou dost not uncover their nakedness; for theirs [is] thy nakedness.
`The nakedness of a daughter of thy father's wife, begotten of thy father, she [is] thy sister; thou dost not uncover her nakedness.
`The nakedness of a sister of thy father thou dost not uncover; she [is] a relation of thy father.
`The nakedness of thy mother's sister thou dost not uncover; for she [is] thy mother's relation.
`The nakedness of thy father's brother thou dost not uncover; unto his wife thou dost not draw near; she [is] thine aunt.
`The nakedness of thy daughter-in-law thou dost not uncover; she [is] thy son's wife; thou dost not uncover her nakedness.
`The nakedness of thy brother's wife thou dost not uncover; it [is] thy brother's nakedness.
`The nakedness of a woman and her daughter thou dost not uncover; her son's daughter, and her daughter's daughter thou dost not take to uncover her nakedness; they [are] her relations; it [is] wickedness.
`And a woman unto another thou dost not take, to be an adversary, to uncover her nakedness beside her, in her life.
`And unto a woman in the separation of her uncleanness thou dost not draw near to uncover her nakedness.
`And unto the wife of thy fellow thou dost not give thy seed of copulation, for uncleanness with her.
`And of thy seed thou dost not give to pass over to the Molech; nor dost thou pollute the name of thy God; I [am] Jehovah.
`And with a male thou dost not lie as one lieth with a woman; abomination it [is].
`And with any beast thou dost not give thy copulation, for uncleanness with it; and a woman doth not stand before a beast to lie down with it; confusion it [is].
`Ye are not defiled with all these, for with all these have the nations been defiled which I am sending away from before you;
and the land is defiled, and I charge its iniquity upon it, and the land vomiteth out its inhabitants:
and ye -- ye have kept My statutes and My judgments, and do not [any] of all these abominations, the native and the sojourner who is sojourning in your midst,
(for all these abominations have the men of the land done who [are] before you, and the land is defiled),
and the land doth not vomit you out in your defiling it, as it hath vomited out the nation which [is] before you;
for any one who doth [any] of all these abominations -- even the persons who are doing [so], have been cut off from the midst of their people;
and ye have kept My charge, so as not to do [any] of the abominable statutes which have been done before you, and ye do not defile yourselves with them; I [am] Jehovah your God.'
then the soldiers of the governor having taken Jesus to the Praetorium, did gather to him all the band;
and having unclothed him, they put around him a crimson cloak,
and having plaited him a crown out of thorns they put [it] on his head, and a reed in his right hand, and having kneeled before him, they were mocking him, saying, `Hail, the king of the Jews.'
And having spit on him, they took the reed, and were smiting on his head;
and when they had mocked him, they took off from him the cloak, and put on him his own garments, and led him away to crucify [him].
And coming forth, they found a man, a Cyrenian, by name Simon: him they impressed that he might bear his cross;
and having come to a place called Golgotha, that is called Place of a Skull,
they gave him to drink vinegar mixed with gall, and having tasted, he would not drink.
And having crucified him, they divided his garments, casting a lot, that it might be fulfilled that was spoken by the prophet, `They divided my garments to themselves, and over my vesture they cast a lot;'
and sitting down, they were watching him there,
and they put up over his head, his accusation written, `This is Jesus, the king of the Jews.'
Then crucified with him are two robbers, one on the right hand, and one on the left,
and those passing by were speaking evil of him, wagging their heads,
and saying, `Thou that art throwing down the sanctuary, and in three days building [it], save thyself; if Son thou art of God, come down from the cross.'
And in like manner also the chief priests mocking, with the scribes and elders, said,
`Others he saved; himself he is not able to save! If he be King of Israel, let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe him;
he hath trusted on God, let Him now deliver him, if He wish him, because he said -- Son of God I am;'
with the same also the robbers, who were crucified with him, were reproaching him.
And from the sixth hour darkness came over all the land unto the ninth hour,
and about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a great voice, saying, `Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?' that is, `My God, my God, why didst Thou forsake me?'
And certain of those standing there having heard, said -- `Elijah he doth call;'
and immediately, one of them having run, and having taken a spunge, having filled [it] with vinegar, and having put [it] on a reed, was giving him to drink,
but the rest said, `Let alone, let us see if Elijah doth come -- about to save him.'
And Jesus having again cried with a great voice, yielded the spirit;
