1 The passover
1 Observe the Ex. 12:2month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lord thy God: for Ex. 13:4in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt Ex. 12:29,42by night.
2 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the Lord thy God, of the flock and Num. 28:19the herd, in the ch. 12:5,26place which the Lord shall choose to place his name there.
3 Ex. 12:15,19,39;& 13:3,6,7;& 34:18Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.
4 Ex. 13:7And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; Ex. 12:10;& 34:25neither shall there any thing of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning.
6 But at the place which the Lord thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover Ex. 12:6at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.
7 And thou shalt Ex. 12:8,9;2 Chr. 35:13roast and eat it 2 Ki. 23:23;John 2:13;& 11:55in the place which the Lord thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents.
9 Feasts of weeks and tabernacles
9 Ex. 23:16;& 34:22;Lev. 23:15;Acts 2:1Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks from such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle to the corn.
10 And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the Lord thy God with [c]a tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which thou shalt give unto the Lord thy God, 1 Cor. 16:2according as the Lord thy God hath blessed thee:
11 And ver. 14;ch. 12:7,12thou shalt rejoice before the Lord thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which the Lord thy God hath chosen to place his name there.
12 ch. 15:15And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt: and thou shalt observe and do these statutes.
14 And Neh. 8:9thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates.
15 Lev. 23:39Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the Lord thy God in the place which the Lord shall choose: because the Lord thy God shall bless thee in all thy increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.
16 Ex. 23:14;& 34:23Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the Lord thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and Ex. 23:15;& 34:20they shall not appear before the Lord empty:
18 Appointment of judges and officers
18 ch. 1:16;1 Chr. 23:4;2 Chr. 19:5Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment.
19 Ex. 23:2,6;Lev. 19:15Thou shalt not wrest judgment; ch. 1:17thou shalt not respect persons, Ex. 23:8;Eccl. 7:7neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the [f]words of the righteous.
21 Ex. 34:13;1 Ki. 14:15;& 16:33;2 Ki. 17:16;& 21:3;2 Chr. 33:3Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the Lord thy God, which thou shalt make thee.
