Deuteronomy 16

BBE 1 Take note of the month of Abib and keep the Passover to the Lord your God: for in the month of Abib the Lord your God took you out of Egypt by night. NIV 1 Observe the month of Aviv and celebrate the Passover of the LORD your God, because in the month of Aviv he brought you out of Egypt by night. BBE 2 The Passover offering, from your flock or your herd, is to be given to the Lord your God in the place marked out by him as the resting-place of his name. NIV 2 Sacrifice as the Passover to the LORD your God an animal from your flock or herd at the place the LORD will choose as a dwelling for his Name. BBE 3 Take no leavened bread with it; for seven days let your food be unleavened bread, that is, the bread of sorrow; for you came out of the land of Egypt quickly: so the memory of that day, when you came out of the land of Egypt, will be with you all your life. NIV 3 Do not eat it with bread made with yeast, but for seven days eat unleavened bread, the bread of affliction, because you left Egypt in haste—so that all the days of your life you may remember the time of your departure from Egypt. BBE 4 For seven days let no leaven be used through all your land; and nothing of the flesh which is put to death in the evening of the first day is to be kept through the night till morning. NIV 4 Let no yeast be found in your possession in all your land for seven days. Do not let any of the meat you sacrifice on the evening of the first day remain until morning. BBE 5 The Passover offering is not to be put to death in any of the towns which the Lord your God gives you: NIV 5 You must not sacrifice the Passover in any town the LORD your God gives you BBE 6 But in the place marked out by the Lord your God as the resting-place of his name, there you are to put the Passover to death in the evening, at sundown, at that time of the year when you came out of Egypt. NIV 6 except in the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name. There you must sacrifice the Passover in the evening, when the sun goes down, on the anniversary of your departure from Egypt. BBE 7 It is to be cooked and taken as food in the place marked out by the Lord: and in the morning you are to go back to your tents. NIV 7 Roast it and eat it at the place the LORD your God will choose. Then in the morning return to your tents. BBE 8 For six days let your food be unleavened bread; and on the seventh day there is to be a holy meeting to the Lord your God; no work is to be done. NIV 8 For six days eat unleavened bread and on the seventh day hold an assembly to the LORD your God and do no work. BBE 9 Let seven weeks be numbered from the first day when the grain is cut. NIV 9 Count off seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain. BBE 10 Then keep the feast of weeks to the Lord your God, with an offering freely given to him from the wealth he has given you: NIV 10 Then celebrate the Festival of Weeks to the LORD your God by giving a freewill offering in proportion to the blessings the LORD your God has given you. BBE 11 Then you are to be glad before the Lord your God, you and your son and your daughter, your man-servant and your woman-servant, and the Levite who is with you, and the man from a strange country, and the child without a father, and the widow, who are living among you, in the place marked out by the Lord your God as a resting-place for his name. NIV 11 And rejoice before the LORD your God at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name—you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, the Levites in your towns, and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows living among you. BBE 12 And you will keep in mind that you were a servant in the land of Egypt: and you will take care to keep all these laws. NIV 12 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt, and follow carefully these decrees. BBE 13 You are to keep the feast of tents for seven days after you have got in all your grain and made your wine: NIV 13 Celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles for seven days after you have gathered the produce of your threshing floor and your winepress. BBE 14 You are to keep the feast with joy, you and your son and your daughter, your man-servant and your woman-servant, and the Levite, and the man from a strange country, and the child without a father, and the widow, who are living among you. NIV 14 Be joyful at your festival—you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites, the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns. BBE 15 Keep the feast to the Lord your God for seven days, in the place marked out by the Lord: because the blessing of the Lord your God will be on all the produce of your land and all the work of your hands, and you will have nothing but joy. NIV 15 For seven days celebrate the festival to the LORD your God at the place the LORD will choose. For the LORD your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete. BBE 16 Three times in the year let all your males come before the Lord your God in the place named by him; at the feast of unleavened bread, the feast of weeks, and the feast of tents: and they are not to come before the Lord with nothing in their hands; NIV 16 Three times a year all your men must appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose: at the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Weeks and the Festival of Tabernacles. No one should appear before the LORD empty-handed: BBE 17 Every man is to give as he is able, in the measure of the blessing which the Lord your God has given you. NIV 17 Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way the LORD your God has blessed you. BBE 18 You are to make judges and overseers in all your towns which the Lord your God gives you, for every tribe: and they are to be upright men, judging the people in righteousness. NIV 18 Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the LORD your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly. BBE 19 You are not to be moved in your judging by a man's position, you are not to take rewards; for rewards make the eyes of the wise man blind, and the decisions of the upright false. NIV 19 Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the innocent. BBE 20 Let righteousness be your guide, so that you may have life, and take for your heritage the land which the Lord your God is giving you. NIV 20 Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you. BBE 21 Let no holy tree of any sort be planted by the altar of the Lord your God which you will make. NIV 21 Do not set up any wooden Asherah pole beside the altar you build to the LORD your God, BBE 22 You are not to put up stone pillars, for they are hated by the Lord your God. NIV 22 and do not erect a sacred stone, for these the LORD your God hates.
