(19) No leaven shall be found in your houses for seven days. For whoever eats what is leavened, that person shall be cut off from the community of Israel, whether he is a stranger or a citizen of the country.
(48) If a stranger who dwells with you would offer the passover to the LORD, all his males must be circumcised; then he shall be admitted to offer it; he shall then be as a citizen of the country. But no uncircumcised person may eat of it.(49) There shall be one law for the citizen and for the stranger who dwells among you.
(35) If your kinsman, being in straits, comes under your authority, and you hold him as though a resident alien, let him live by your side:(36) do not exact from him advance or accrued interest, but fear your God. Let him live by your side as your kinsman.(37) Do not lend him your money at advance interest, or give him your food at accrued interest.(38) I the LORD am your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, to be your God.
(21) You shall not eat anything that has died a natural death; give it to the stranger in your community to eat, or you may sell it to a foreigner. For you are a people consecrated to the LORD your God. You shall not boil a kid in its mother’s milk.
(30) At that time Joshua built an altar to the LORD, the God of Israel, on Mount Ebal,(31) as Moses, the servant of the LORD, had commanded the Israelites—as is written in the Book of the Teaching of Moses—an altar of unhewn stone upon which no iron had been wielded. They offered on it burnt offerings to the LORD, and brought sacrifices of well-being.(32) And there, on the stones, he inscribed a copy of the Teaching that Moses had written for the Israelites.(33) All Israel—stranger and citizen alike—with their elders, officials, and magistrates, stood on either side of the Ark, facing the levitical priests who carried the Ark of the LORD’s Covenant. Half of them faced Mount Gerizim and half of them faced Mount Ebal, as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded them of old, in order to bless the people of Israel.(34) After that, he read all the words of the Teaching, the blessing and the curse, just as is written in the Book of the Teaching.(35) There was not a word of all that Moses had commanded that Joshua failed to read in the presence of the entire assembly of Israel, including the women and children and the strangers who accompanied them.
(21) This land you shall divide for yourselves among the tribes of Israel.(22) You shall allot it as a heritage for yourselves and for the strangers who reside among you, who have begotten children among you. You shall treat them as Israelite citizens; they shall receive allotments along with you among the tribes of Israel.(23) You shall give the stranger an allotment within the tribe where he resides—declares the Lord GOD.
(9) When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap all the way to the edges of your field, or gather the gleanings of your harvest.(10) You shall not pick your vineyard bare, or gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger: I the LORD am your God.
(33) When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not wrong him.(34) The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as one of your citizens; you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I the LORD am your God.
(28) Every third year you shall bring out the full tithe of your yield of that year, but leave it within your settlements.(29) Then the Levite, who has no hereditary portion as you have, and the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow in your settlements shall come and eat their fill, so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the enterprises you undertake.
(10) you shall carry out the verdict that is announced to you from that place that the LORD chose, observing scrupulously all their instructions to you.(11) You shall act in accordance with the instructions given you and the ruling handed down to you; you must not deviate from the verdict that they announce to you either to the right or to the left.(12) Should a man act presumptuously and disregard the priest charged with serving there the LORD your God, or the magistrate, that man shall die. Thus you will sweep out evil from Israel:(13) all the people will hear and be afraid and will not act presumptuously again.(14) If, after you have entered the land that the LORD your God has assigned to you, and taken possession of it and settled in it, you decide, “I will set a king over me, as do all the nations about me,”(15) you shall be free to set a king over yourself, one chosen by the LORD your God. Be sure to set as king over yourself one of your own people; you must not set a foreigner over you, one who is not your kinsman.
(17) You shall not subvert the rights of the stranger or the fatherless; you shall not take a widow’s garment in pawn.(18) Remember that you were a slave in Egypt and that the LORD your God redeemed you from there; therefore do I enjoin you to observe this commandment.(19) When you reap the harvest in your field and overlook a sheaf in the field, do not turn back to get it; it shall go to the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow—in order that the LORD your God may bless you in all your undertakings.(20) When you beat down the fruit of your olive trees, do not go over them again; that shall go to the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow.(21) When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, do not pick it over again; that shall go to the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow.(22) Always remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt; therefore do I enjoin you to observe this commandment.
(1) When you enter the land that the LORD your God is giving you as a heritage, and you possess it and settle in it,(2) you shall take some of every first fruit of the soil, which you harvest from the land that the LORD your God is giving you, put it in a basket and go to the place where the LORD your God will choose to establish His name.(3) You shall go to the priest in charge at that time and say to him, “I acknowledge this day before the LORD your God that I have entered the land that the LORD swore to our fathers to assign us.”(4) The priest shall take the basket from your hand and set it down in front of the altar of the LORD your God.(5) You shall then recite as follows before the LORD your God: “My father was a fugitive Aramean. He went down to Egypt with meager numbers and sojourned there; but there he became a great and very populous nation.(6) The Egyptians dealt harshly with us and oppressed us; they imposed heavy labor upon us.(7) We cried to the LORD, the God of our fathers, and the LORD heard our plea and saw our plight, our misery, and our oppression.(8) The LORD freed us from Egypt by a mighty hand, by an outstretched arm and awesome power, and by signs and portents.(9) He brought us to this place and gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.(10) Wherefore I now bring the first fruits of the soil which You, O LORD, have given me.” You shall leave it before the LORD your God and bow low before the LORD your God.(11) And you shall enjoy, together with the Levite and the stranger in your midst, all the bounty that the LORD your God has bestowed upon you and your household.(12) When you have set aside in full the tenth part of your yield—in the third year, the year of the tithe—and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat their fill in your settlements,(13) you shall declare before the LORD your God: “I have cleared out the consecrated portion from the house; and I have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, just as You commanded me; I have neither transgressed nor neglected any of Your commandments:
(3) Thus said the LORD of Hosts, the God of Israel: Mend your ways and your actions, and I will let you dwell in this place.(4) Don’t put your trust in illusions and say, “The Temple of the LORD, the Temple of the LORD, the Temple of the LORD are these [buildings].”(5) No, if you really mend your ways and your actions; if you execute justice between one man and another;(6) if you do not oppress the stranger, the orphan, and the widow; if you do not shed the blood of the innocent in this place; if you do not follow other gods, to your own hurt—(7) then only will I let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers for all time.
(1) Thus said the LORD: Go down to the palace of the king of Judah, where you shall utter this word.(2) Say: “Hear the word of the LORD: O king of Judah, you who sit on the throne of David, and your courtiers and your subjects who enter these gates!(3) Thus said the LORD: Do what is just and right; rescue from the defrauder him who is robbed; do not wrong the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow; commit no lawless act, and do not shed the blood of the innocent in this place.(4) For if you fulfill this command, then through the gates of this palace shall enter kings of David’s line who sit upon his throne, riding horse-drawn chariots, with their courtiers and their subjects.(5) But if you do not heed these commands, I swear by Myself—declares the LORD—that this palace shall become a ruin.”
(6) Every one of the princes of Israel in your midst used his strength for the shedding of blood.(7) Fathers and mothers have been humiliated within you; strangers have been cheated in your midst; orphans and widows have been wronged within you.
(29) And the people of the land have practiced fraud and committed robbery; they have wronged the poor and needy, have defrauded the stranger without redress.(30) And I sought a man among them to repair the wall or to stand in the breach before Me in behalf of this land, that I might not destroy it; but I found none.(31) I have therefore poured out My indignation upon them; I will consume them with the fire of My fury. I will repay them for their conduct—declares the Lord GOD.
(8) And the word of the LORD to Zechariah continued:(9) Thus said the LORD of Hosts: Execute true justice; deal loyally and compassionately with one another.(10) Do not defraud the widow, the orphan, the stranger, and the poor; and do not plot evil against one another.—
(5) But [first] I will step forward to contend against you, and I will act as a relentless accuser against those who have no fear of Me: Who practice sorcery, who commit adultery, who swear falsely, who cheat laborers of their hire, and who subvert [the cause of] the widow, orphan, and stranger, said the LORD of Hosts.
(29) And this shall be to you a law for all time: In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall practice self-denial; and you shall do no manner of work, neither the citizen nor the alien who resides among you.
(8) Say to them further: If anyone of the house of Israel or of the strangers who reside among them offers a burnt offering or a sacrifice,(9) and does not bring it to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting to offer it to the LORD, that person shall be cut off from his people.(10) And if anyone of the house of Israel or of the strangers who reside among them partakes of any blood, I will set My face against the person who partakes of the blood, and I will cut him off from among his kin.(11) For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have assigned it to you for making expiation for your lives upon the altar; it is the blood, as life, that effects expiation.(12) Therefore I say to the Israelite people: No person among you shall partake of blood, nor shall the stranger who resides among you partake of blood.(13) And if any Israelite or any stranger who resides among them hunts down an animal or a bird that may be eaten, he shall pour out its blood and cover it with earth.(14) For the life of all flesh—its blood is its life. Therefore I say to the Israelite people: You shall not partake of the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood. Anyone who partakes of it shall be cut off.(15) Any person, whether citizen or stranger, who eats what has died or has been torn by beasts shall wash his clothes, bathe in water, and remain unclean until evening; then he shall be clean.(16) But if he does not wash [his clothes] and bathe his body, he shall bear his guilt.
(24) Do not defile yourselves in any of those ways, for it is by such that the nations that I am casting out before you defiled themselves.(25) Thus the land became defiled; and I called it to account for its iniquity, and the land spewed out its inhabitants.(26) But you must keep My laws and My rules, and you must not do any of those abhorrent things, neither the citizen nor the stranger who resides among you;(27) for all those abhorrent things were done by the people who were in the land before you, and the land became defiled.
(1) And the LORD spoke to Moses:(2) Say further to the Israelite people: Anyone among the Israelites, or among the strangers residing in Israel, who gives any of his offspring to Molech, shall be put to death; the people of the land shall pelt him with stones.(3) And I will set My face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he gave of his offspring to Molech and so defiled My sanctuary and profaned My holy name.
(17) The LORD spoke to Moses, saying:(18) Speak to Aaron and his sons, and to all the Israelite people, and say to them: When any man of the house of Israel or of the strangers in Israel presents a burnt offering as his offering for any of the votive or any of the freewill offerings that they offer to the LORD,(19) it must, to be acceptable in your favor, be a male without blemish, from cattle or sheep or goats.(20) You shall not offer any that has a defect, for it will not be accepted in your favor.
(15) And to the Israelite people speak thus: Anyone who blasphemes his God shall bear his guilt;(16) if he also pronounces the name LORD, he shall be put to death. The whole community shall stone him; stranger or citizen, if he has thus pronounced the Name, he shall be put to death.
(17) If anyone kills any human being, he shall be put to death.(18) One who kills a beast shall make restitution for it: life for life.(19) If anyone maims his fellow, as he has done so shall it be done to him:(20) fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. The injury he inflicted on another shall be inflicted on him.(21) One who kills a beast shall make restitution for it; but one who kills a human being shall be put to death.(22) You shall have one standard for stranger and citizen alike: for I the LORD am your God.
(47) If a resident alien among you has prospered, and your kinsman being in straits, comes under his authority and gives himself over to the resident alien among you, or to an offshoot of an alien’s family,(48) he shall have the right of redemption even after he has given himself over. One of his kinsmen shall redeem him,(49) or his uncle or his uncle’s son shall redeem him, or anyone of his family who is of his own flesh shall redeem him; or, if he prospers, he may redeem himself.(50) He shall compute with his purchaser the total from the year he gave himself over to him until the jubilee year; the price of his sale shall be applied to the number of years, as though it were for a term as a hired laborer under the other’s authority.(51) If many years remain, he shall pay back for his redemption in proportion to his purchase price;(52) and if few years remain until the jubilee year, he shall so compute: he shall make payment for his redemption according to the years involved.
(13) Every citizen, when presenting an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the LORD, shall do so with them.(14) And when, throughout the ages, a stranger who has taken up residence with you, or one who lives among you, would present an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the LORD—as you do, so shall it be done by(15) the rest of the congregation. There shall be one law for you and for the resident stranger; it shall be a law for all time throughout the ages. You and the stranger shall be alike before the LORD;(16) the same ritual and the same rule shall apply to you and to the stranger who resides among you.(17) The LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
(22) If you unwittingly fail to observe any one of the commandments that the LORD has declared to Moses—(23) anything that the LORD has enjoined upon you through Moses—from the day that the LORD gave the commandment and on through the ages:(24) If this was done unwittingly, through the inadvertence of the community, the whole community shall present one bull of the herd as a burnt offering of pleasing odor to the LORD, with its proper meal offering and libation, and one he-goat as a sin offering.(25) The priest shall make expiation for the whole Israelite community and they shall be forgiven; for it was an error, and for their error they have brought their offering, an offering by fire to the LORD and their sin offering before the LORD.(26) The whole Israelite community and the stranger residing among them shall be forgiven, for it happened to the entire people through error.
(27) In case it is an individual who has sinned unwittingly, he shall offer a she-goat in its first year as a sin offering.(28) The priest shall make expiation before the LORD on behalf of the person who erred, for he sinned unwittingly, making such expiation for him that he may be forgiven.(29) For the citizen among the Israelites and for the stranger who resides among them—you shall have one ritual for anyone who acts in error.(30) But the person, be he citizen or stranger, who acts defiantly reviles the LORD; that person shall be cut off from among his people.(31) Because he has spurned the word of the LORD and violated His commandment, that person shall be cut off—he bears his guilt.
(6) Now say to the House of Israel: Thus said the Lord GOD: Repent, and turn back from your fetishes and turn your minds away from all your abominations.(7) For if any man of the House of Israel, or of the strangers who dwell in Israel, breaks away from Me and turns his thoughts upon his fetishes and sets his mind upon the sins through which he stumbled, and then goes to the prophet to inquire of Me through him, I the LORD will respond to him directly.(8) I will set My face against that man and make him a sign and a byword, and I will cut him off from the midst of My people. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.
